Much credit goes to Chez, a.k.a. Deus Ex Malcontent, in describing Sarah Palin (and the following images). Given that the Republican Party’s mostly catering to people like this…

It sort of makes sense they’d bring on someone with an alarming resemblance to Britney, yes? Judge for yourself, circa 1984:

And, of course, given this is America we’re talking about, no public figure with Universal MILF-like (or is it V-PILF now?) ambitions would be complete without a scary, air-brushed, re-touched with near-mythic Photoshopping, even if the magazine is fake:

As you’ve probably guessed, I’m not the biggest fan of Sarah Palin.

As the Republican Party continues to slit its own throat deeper and deeper as the Gong Show that is the G.O.P.’s national convention unfolds, you really do have to wonder what the McCain camp was thinking when they picked Palin. Did they actually vet this candidate? Seriously, did anyone?

Of course, if you’re dumb enough to be suckered into the pretty face and tough talk Palin espouses, you really should take a closer look at her policy platforms: stridently pro-life, a hunter, a husband with shady political leanings – the list goes on and on. She’s essentially Bush in a skirt – she’s so immensely in over her head that it will take much larger players like McCain to keep this party going if the Republicans get in. Does any of this sound at all familiar? *cough* Cheney…

So let’s see: Obama gets raked over the coals by the dunderheads at Fox News over his middle name, but Palin gets a free pass over her jaw-dropping lack of experience at the federal level and zero foreign policy experience? Please, how stupid do the Republicans think Americans are?

Never mind that a key component of the Republican Party’s catering to the pointy-head types that rule “the base” (read: The Religious Right) – abstaince-only programs work! Didn’t James Dobson tell y’all that recently? – of the party now look very hypocritical and patently foolish. Bristol Palin probably never would have imagined the future of America would hinge on whether she got knocked up at age 17 by a hockey-playing redneck named Levi. God, the iron(y)ing is delicious.

First Hurricane Gustav, gently reminding America and Republicans alike of the mind-blowing incompetence the Bush Administration demonstrated in New Orleans less than three years ago. Now Palin’s daughter – a sharp, nasty stab into the hypocritical heart of the Republican Party’s cynical catering to religious wingnuts.

Thank you Republicans – you might as well hand the election over to the Democrats right now.

Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it?



  1. Palins daughter IS NOT a stab in the heart of the republican party.Yes, it is unfortunate that she got pregnant at a young age but many women have and have been matured by the experience.What would you have her do, have an abortion?! She herself is a strong woman in her own right.She runs a rather large household and the largest state.

  2. An what foreign policy experience does Obama have? Other then having been born on foreign soil. Now all of a sudden one would have us believe that Biden wasn’t pick for the VP because he actually might be able to find say Uzbekistan on a map. Before you make fools of yourselves, maybe you should remember who your party nominated.

  3. Airborneranger,

    Thanks for your comments. Just a couple of things:

    1) I’m Canadian. I’m not a registered Democrat. I merely support Barack Obama.

    2) It’s not my place to say if Bristol should have an abortion or not. That’s her choice. The problem is, as Jon Stewart rightly pointed out last night, that Palin is basically wanting it both ways: she wants Americans to embrace her daughter’s right to choose to keep her baby but her pro-life stance is basically saying to America: “you can’t choose because the government says it’s wrong.” So basically, she says her daughter’s okay to choose, but America isn’t allowed?

    3) No doubt Sarah Palin is strong, but one thing: Alaska is geographically the largest state in the Union, but the population of Alaska is smaller than the state’s moose population. Last time I checked, governance was about people, not mountains and snow.

    4) Just so you know, John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone. By the logic you’re applying to Obama being born outside the U.S. homeland, McCain’s not a U.S. citizen either. But we know that’s nonsense, right?

    5) Democrats aren’t making fools of themselves. Democrats don’t make brutal attacks on Palin like she did last night to Obama. Democrats had an entire unit of military generals on stage endoring Obama (so much for the Republican commitment to national security). Democrats didn’t hire John Rich to compose and sing the all-time worst celebrity endorsement song that made Republicans look exceedingly ridiculous.

    So really, pot kettle black my friend.
