McCain Palin declare Class War

Sarah Palin winkThe GOP has been waging class warfare even as it cries foul of every populist attempt the fight back. Now Sarah Palin and John McCain have seized the standard for the middle class, pretending to want to lead the attack on Washington, all the while presiding over the continued evisceration of America’s common wealth. Sarah Palin is a Trojan horse to thrill the hillbillies, but filled with icky Blackwater paramilitary foot soldiers.
From the 13TH: Just when you thought all the humor has left the U.S. election, along comes Que Sarah Sarah! With experience in snowjobs and folk lore, she’s definitely the creme of the crop circle.

The Bray of Pigs

pig troughAmerica, from The Bahia de Cochinos of my youth to the Bray of Pigs today! What haven’t I seen in my brief time here in the USA on Planet Barf?

Today certainly should be declared the Bray of Pigs. Much rides on whether the Pig With Lipstick ‘wins’ or the Donkey With Lipstick does bray the best? BRAY My online dictionary describes it as such…

bray1 /bre?/ Pronunciation Key – Show Spelled Pronunciation[brey] Pronunciation Key – Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun 1. the loud, harsh cry of a donkey.
2. any similar loud, harsh sound.

If and when Macho Man Joe loses to Fascinating Womanhood tonight, we certainly will hear a lot of liberal donkeys braying… and even praying. Add to this event, the passage of ‘Bailout at the times the pigs actually merit a Jail In, and certainly we do have a Bray of Pigs situation. This legislation is designed to sink the world economy, not save it. Common folk be damned, pigs to the trough! The world’s in a muck… and it’s hard to stomach the smell.

Columnist Joe Bageant sums it up in this way…

We will pay because George Bush worked hard for all those Ds in school and became20the first MBA president. We will pay because our media has internalized the capitalist system so thoroughly they can only talk in Wall Speak. We will pay because the only language we have to describe our world is that of our oppressors because we have been taught to think in Wall Speak. We will pay because we hitched our wagon to last stage capitalism and even though the wagon has now two wheels over the cliff and roars forward, we don’t know where the brake handle is located. And because we don’t know any better or understand any possible resistance to the system because we have been kept like worms in a jar and fed horse shit.

And as we all know, worms do not rise up in revolt.

That takes a backbone.

For houses with McCain-Palin lawn signs

A topical greeting card to leave where you see McCain/Palin lawn signs:
Neighborly greeting card
Finally a chance to do more than throw watermelon rinds at their lawns signs on the drive to school. Tonight’s tentatively calamitous main event offers a chance to elevate neighborly political discourse. Before tonight’s Sarah Palin debate appearance, hand deliver a greeting card to neighbors on your block who have McCAIN or NOBAMA signs on their property. Whether they’re selfish, bigoted, uninformed, or just idiots, make them feel the transparency of their Republican affiliation.

The Palinator

Do you remember the Grossinator? It was a handheld device designed to hurl childish insults at bystanders. Part of the fun was creating the vulgar statements using four buttons, each of which had several sentence fragments associated with it.

Button #1
You’re like/It’s time for/Let’s all make/How about/I just love/
I’m gonna make/There’s nothing like

Button #2
a big/a long/a revolting/a disgusting/a slimy/a foul/a horrible

Button #3

Button #4

After you’d chosen the words that would comprise your insult, a final button caused the Grossinator’s growly voice to broadcast your lowbrow wit to all within earshot. If you didn’t have an insult preference, the Grossinator combined the fragments on its own. Hearing the familiar words and phrases cobbled together in unexpected, sometimes nonsensical, fashion was most hilarious.

Sarah Palin’s recent encounters with the media have been disastrous. So disastrous, in fact, that Saturday Night Live was able to parody her interview with Katie Couric using parts of the transcript verbatim! McCain’s campaign handlers are holed up in Sedona with Palin this very minute trying to coach her for Thursday’s debate. There is no chance that they can make her look well-informed. At best they can hope she doesn’t say anything egregiously erroneous, or downright dangerous.

I think the safest plan would be to limit Palin’s leeway in the debate. To keep her from wandering into parts unknown (to her), campaign strategists should carefully select words and phrases for her to memorize and combine as she saw fit. Even better, they could enlist Mattel to create the Palinator.

Button #1
Senator McCain and I/Our administration/It’s got to be about/
My experience as

Button #2
economy/healthcare reform/terrorism/taxes/executive/maverick

Button #3
certainly does/ultimately/I dunno/you know/yeah

Button #4
gotcha journalism/liberal elite/spending/Alaska/
the United States of America

Notice that there are no words associated with abortion, birth control, evolution, war, religion, state troopers, lipstick, pigs, Russia, Wall Street, Bush Doctrine, United Nations, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, or special needs children.

I didn’t actually put together any of the above fragments to make sure they made coherent sentences. But then the Palinator wouldn’t, would it? It would simply say whatever it’s been programmed to say.

Two better Vice-Presidential choices- Rosa Clemente and Matt Gonzalez

You don’t have to choose between a crazy fundamentalist Right Wing woman, Sarah Palin, or a slimy used car selling crook and Zionist, Joseph Biden. Check out two much better and quite different VP possibilities, Rosa Clemente and Matt Gonzalez…

Compare Rosa Clemente Green Party VP candidate speaks at Convention to Sarah Palin. What woman from ‘the common people’ do you prefer here? And compare Matt Gonzalez Ralph Nader’s running mate 2008 He was born in McAllen, Texas. Yoo-Hoo! Compare him to that dry drunk ‘Texan’ we now have in the White House screwing up the world! Yes, and compare Matt to slime ball Joe? Who do you really want in office?
