Sarah Palin Signs
With Fox News!!

I am – Hercules!!
Previously. On Coaxial:
My guess is Sarah Palin is quitting Alaska because Fox News wants to put her to work – presumably bitching about how slowly the new president is digging us out of this incredible hole we’re all in – while her 45-year-old kisser is a bit more camera-friendly.
That was July 3 of last year, the day Palin announced she would be quitting as Alaska’s governor after two and half years in the job. Talkbacker “loserguy3000” posted later that day:
So when Palin DOESN'T go to Fox News Herc, will you apologize? Say you were wrong in a front-page apology post? You know, to keep us updated?
Here’s the update. Fox News announced Monday that Palin had signed a “multi-year” deal to serve as a contributor for the channel. The "multi-year" part is terrible news, of course, for the Democrats hoping Palin could top the Republican presidential ticket in 2012. Was she the Republicans’ best hope for retaking the White House in 2012? Many in line at her recent book signings were quick to answer in the affirmative. Is she a good fit with the likes of Brit Hume, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity? Leaving aside for the moment Joe The Plumber, I can think of none better. Palin was the star of a jaw-dropping “60 Minutes” segment last night. Kindly have a gander:

    Amazing how 60 minutes didn't mention a thing about Senator Reid or Bill Clinton's racial comments, but instead spent 10 minutes on a negatively slanted report on Palin. Open your eyes and see the truth you weasle. Everyone should watch Glenn Beck for at least a week. Maybe then, you will learn something. Here comes the liberal crying...Go...

    I watch Glenn Beck everyday. Have been for years. Before Fox, when his show was on CNN. He does cry, and it's laughable at times, but it still doesn't deter his message. Watch him for a week and make your own decision about his opinions. Don't be a member of the "sheeple" and believe someone elses blog. Make your OWN decision. Try it, you might learn something...I mean that in a positive way too.

    by cylon_conspiracy

    <p>I love her. And she stepped down from her job as Governor because she couldn't keep up with the frivolous lawsuits that were interfering with her job. Much in the way liberals want to mock her in the media to weaken her in 2012, people wanted to fuck up her governorship... to weaken her.</p> <p>Can't wait to see her segments on Fox News!</p>

    The best thing about Palin...

    by TheGreatHomsar that she attracts slack-jawed, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging retards like moths to a streetlight. Easier to avoid when they travel in large flag-waving, Bible-thumping, hate-spewing herds.

    Ding Dong, AICN is officially DEAD.

    by Wookie_Weed

    By turning into a NeoCon mouthpiece, AICN has officially hammered the final nail in its own coffin. No wonder AICN is so slow to report news these days, if they think Palin and FOX is something to celebrate. Stick the politics where the sun doesn't shine, we come here for movie news. Remember what movie news means? The inside scoops on movie plots and development and casting? Fucktards, America deserves to get nuked.

    @ TheGreatHomsar

    by Blood_Bubbles_in_Bathwater

    I don't consider Palin to be an amazing word smith or anything, but she sure stomped Biden's ass in the vice presidential debate. :) And the flag waving and bible thumping? Maybe. But the only hate spewing I hear seems to come from MSNBC and its doughy, effete halfwit viewers living in their moms' basements.

    Definetely a MILF

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    also not fit to be the president of ...welll anything unless its about MILF's. <p> Obama is one of the most intelligent Presidents the US has had in a long time, just don't think he or his party has balls. <p> Like Bill Maher said no matter how stupid George W's decisions were at least he had conviction, and didn't want to be everyone's friend. <p> In a choice between Obama and Modern Day Republicans there really isnt a choice. One year down in Obama's presidency, he has 3 years left to avoid this being the biggest waste of talent and majority power in recent political history. <p>

    Two things. 1) Joe the Plumber was not even a real plumber and he was an obvious plant. 2)I wouldn't consider the video of her participating in an exorcism a "gaffe". I would call it insanity.

    the best political analysis of the Obama election

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Is still the episode of South Park that came out the day after the election, Obama voters thinking all they had to do was elect him and not prepared to sacrifice and the McCain voters overreacting think its the end of the world. <p> Saying that the Health Care debate, teabaggers and birthers, brought out more crazies than South Park could have possibly imagined. <p> I think anyone looking back on footage of those people, would be really concerned that perhaps not enough people are on medication and I hope they aren't breeding. <p> But saying that it has made for great comedy material for the likes of Stewart and Colbert.

    by Wookie_Weed

    But the Republican/NeoCon apologists will believe what they're spoonfed by Faux news. America is fucking doomed, unless Obama/Biden grow a pair between them, withdraw troops, say FUCK YOU to the Republican whiners and enforce health care and education reforms. They're not going to change the country for the better by asking politely. They have the majority, so fuck the conservatives to hell. 8 years of the biggest corruption in American history, and Americans act as if it never happened, Cheney and Rumsfeld were nice, honest guys.

    ...The comments by Harry Reid — in the same book — about how good it was that Obama was a "light-skinned African American" who could speak "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one"?<p>The SAME 60 Minutes that FAILED to mention that this book ALSO had Bill Clinton saying of Obama, “A few years ago, this guy would've been getting us coffee”??? THAT 60 Minutes?<p>Geez... you guys are so STUPID, Sarah Palin's a genius in comparison. People thinking Palin's not smart ISN'T news... it's OLD. So your putting up a clip that simply parrots that nonsense, while completely IGNORING the REAL NEWS of Reid and Clinton's statements simply paints you as simple-minded asses.<p>In future, please stick to superheros and Blue Thundersmurfs.

    This Could Work Against Her

    by Akira Cowabunga

    The more we see Palin, the more her ignorance and arrogance will be revealed. Problem is, her supporters are just as ignorant and arrogant, so they'll still blindly follow her simpleton worldview, never realizing how stupid and dangerous they all are. But I still think that the more visible she is, the less enchanting she'll become. The woman's a fucking vacuum in every department that is necessary to run a state, let alone a government.

    By the Way, Cylon Conspiracy

    by Akira Cowabunga

    You're really a dumb fuck. The reason Fox ratings are higher than something like MSNBC or CNN is because there is only one network that expresses a biased view like theirs. If there was only one network that expressed the bias that MSNBC, CNN and other stations present, their ratings would be higher than Fox. You're really one giant fucking idiot.

    by cylon_conspiracy

    It's amazing to me that you can jump to conclusions like that. You've traveled this entire country and personally spoken to all of her supporters, and can now conclude that they are all "ignorant and arrogant"?</p> <p>I would think the very definition of arrogance is dismissing an entire group of people, whom you don't know, because of some pre-conception you have about their political beliefs.</p>

    Let Me Be Clear, However

    by Akira Cowabunga

    Fox, MSNBC, CNN and their ilk are all poison. They cater to fools and simpletons on both sides of the spectrum and I think they're all garbage. That being said, combine the ratings of the "left" networks and compare them to the "right" networks and the left wins hands down, no question. If you had several Fox-like networks out there, they'd split the ratings as well. Thankfully, there's only one Fox, because there aren't as many blithering idiots out there compared to those who can actually think critically and clearly.

    Name Calling

    by DocVenkman

    The thing that always bugs me most about these political talkbacks (and this applies to the internet in general) is that inevitably someone will say "SEE?? Liberals/Conservatives can't have a real debate without name calling cause' they know they're wrong/too stupid." And that person will defend their side and say that they NEVER use name calling. It's the internet, almost everybody resorts to name-calling at some point. Shut the fuck up about it.

    You're cherry picking. Fox is the only radically Right network. CNN, MSNBC, HNL, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc., etc., etc. all present a much more liberal bent on the news. Again, Fox's ratings are high because they are they only animal of their kind. Liberals have many more venues, so the viewership is split in a dozen or more ways. Your FACTS are not facts at all, which is a typical Fox technique. No wonder you tout them. You are just another of those idiots I'm talking about. You wouldn't know a fact if it flew up your ass and fucked you all day long.

    by Orionsangels

    Fox & Friends, Hannity, Huckabee, Neil Cavuto. Glenn Beck, yes Glenn Beck, despite your feeble attempt to hide the fact you're far right by saying you're a Patriot. Your show consist of bashing the Left and defending the Right. When Bush was in office, on your radio show Mr. Beck. You constantly defended President Bush, supported the Patriot act and bashed the Left every chance you got. Then we have the cockiest most arrogant asshole on TV. Bill O'Reilly. Another douche on Fox News. Who claims to not be for the Right. Yet his show mainly consist of bashing the Left and defending the Right. So now Fox News is adding that cunt Palin to the lineup. Oh how perfect. Why not just change the name of Fox News to the Stupid Far Right White Person network? Fair and Balance my ass!, more like fair and balanced for Midwest Rednecks.

    Actually, the reason for the obsession with Palin...

    by FlandersBum

    ...has more to do with the fact that she has an '(R)' after her name than anything else. Joe Biden is a "Grade A" Moron who has said racially insensitive and stupid things in the past. Yet he seems to always get a pass from the same people who love picking apart Palin whenever the opportunity arises. And Biden is actually second in command at the moment, which scares the hell out of me.

    Party o' Lincoln

    by PreciousRoy

    How fucking embarrassing is it that the party of Lincoln reduces itself to putting under-qualified, popular C students in a position to accept the highest office in our nation? How pitiful is it that in order to have a function in the political scene today, neo-conservatives spend all their time trying to cast Obama as a villain so they have somewhere to go after 8 years of Bush administration Kool-Aid parties? How pathetic is it that, faced with the evidence that Palin is an enormous fool, people still defend her and the people who back her?

  • Jan. 12, 2010, 5:03 a.m. CST

    Wow, so much damn foolery, ya don't know where to start!

    by DarkHawke

    But let me just take FlandersBum's points. 60 Minutes concentrated on Palin because she scares the life out of liberals. McCain's campaign was on life-support till she arrived, and it would have been D.O.A. if anyone else had been chosen. She's a strong, intelligent, savvy and up-beat woman who really is accomplished politically and lives her conservative values, and that's REALLY popular with a lot of people in this country. So much so that it's likely that if the ticket had been Palin/McCain instead of McCain/Palin, the press corp would be yelling "Madam President" today./P This is why the constant obsession; this is why the constant baseless ethics charges; this is why while focusing on a book thick with dirt on both sides, 60 Minutes spent 10 minutes out of a 13 minute segment to further try to destroy her. Simply put, the left views her as an existential threat and they will stop at nothing to assassinate her character and make her seem like an un-viable candidate in 2012. You'll remember that McCain got *glowing* press until he became the nominee. That's because the left WANTED a comparatively weak and feckless Republican for the Democrat nominee to run against. As Rush says time and again, the left will tell us who they fear, and they don't so much as quiver in the face of any other prominent Republican./p BTW, did you notice how sexist that piece was, that it ONLY focused on the women in the campaign? And how predictable was it that the SOLE mention of Obama was an almost noble reach-out to Hilary Clinton to be Secretary of State? Despite the fact she's been pretty much relegated to the back benches and overrun by the President himself and his czars in almost all important foreign policy matters. Don't we all know that he gave her the job to keep her quiet and out of the way? Then again, with everything that's going on in the world today, I'm sure glad that Secretary of State Clinton is firming up our relations in the freakin' SOUTH PACIFIC!

While you're hating us. Because we know what's right. What? Oh, magazines? Um, you know.

And at first, I thought the Couric interview was just a product of that. Now, they say that she didn't even try to CRAM for it? She spent the whole morning doing a self-serving interview with a local Alaska newspaper? Yikes, this is like trying to elect the head cheerleader as class president because she's bubbling and popular, but truly doesn't know enough for the job.

    something to think about...

    by harper54

    “That's why I say, I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bail out, but ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping tho— it's got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track, so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as— competitive— scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that." “I believe that I am because I have common sense and I have I believe the values that I think are reflective of so many other American values, and I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the uhm, the ah, a kind of spineless, spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite, Ivy league education and, and a fat resume that is based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans are could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership, I'm not saying that that has to be me.” "I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq and everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children." 1. I now think these may be alien communiqués that only certain folks of a particular verbal flexibility can decipher. What if Jodi Foster and John Hurt got to work trying to figure out the algorithms and hidden formulas embedded in these streams of semiconscious channeling? Matthew McConaughey could help too by keeping Jake Busey at bay by brushing his hair. Just sayin….

    "still, I remember Herc saying he's republican"

    by jim

    I may be wrong, but I think Herc said, while voting Democrat, he is registered as a Republican. That way he can vote in the Republican Primary to try and get the lesser candidate nominated, supposedly giving his Democrats a better chance in the general election. Or I may be confusing Herc with Harry.

    That would be awesome. I'd love it if CNN Headline News would appoint themselves the defender of all things Judiastic. As it is now, we've got Fox defending Christians and the rest of the mainstream media defending Islam, and nobody is really defending the Jews. Or the Buddhists. Or the Wiccans.<br><br>Although there are lots of defenders of Mother Gaea and the First Church of Global Warming. That's one religion that gets a first class defense on almost every network, across the board.

    Stabby: The Mainstream Media is Liberal


    Not ultra-leftists. So, of course, serious leftists and socialists and aspiring communists (and, of course, conspiracy theorists) see the mainstream media as too far right, or an apolitical "part of the machine" that participates in the crafting of the false, Matrix-y world engineered by the New World Order cabal.<br><br>However, just because the mainstream media is nowhere near liberal enough for you doesn't mean that it isn't left of center, or that it doesn't cover politicians and political issues differently depending on whether the originate from liberal Democrats or conservative Republicans. Because they certainly do.<br><br>And Fox tosses Republicans and conservatives softball questions, except when it's Shepard Smith. That's how it works. So, the mainstream media is liberal, except for Fox. But not ultra-super-extra-fruity-liberal, which to those left of Stalin means that the mainstream media isn't liberal at all. When, of course, it objectively is--even if it isn't nearly liberal enough for you personally.

    It was pretty obvious Sarah Palin left public service because she thought, rightly, that she could make more money in the private sector.

    Sarah Palin and the Talking Points


    Sarah Palin holds the world record for saying the words "common sense Americans" in a single sentence.

She knows she is virtually unelectable (or that the odds are very, very bad). Here, she might be able to shape public policy a little bit (or, at least as much as any talking head) and can make money, and will have a built in promotional platform for future books, DVDs, exercise videos, her upcoming line of custom-painted ATVs, and her handy moose skin-and-dress and head mounting kit.

    Rbatty: The Media Is Liberal, Not Leftist


    There is a difference. And liberal doesn't mean *as* liberal as you, or anywhere close to it. Plus, the great majority of the mainstream media had mixed-to-negative coverage leading up to the Iraq war. I realize two journalists at the New York Times effectively made the case for WMDs. As did the CIA and MI6 and the Israeli Intelligence Community and French Intelligence at the time, but that doesn't change the fact that, on the whole, the mainstream media tends to be liberal. Just not liberal enough for you.

    I have no qualms about people making boatloads of cash, but Palin doing so exemplifies the problem with American politicians using their positions in public service for profiteering at all costs. <P> The worst case I can think of at the moment is Giuliani. I once admired him when he was DA and took down the mafia in NYC. I remember when the mob set fire to their offices at the Fulton Fish Market in defiance of his crackdown. <P> That was a far and away different man from the Giuliani of today. This one, he's on the tele constantly beating the war drums because his company is built on war and national security contracting. He's not even shy about it. And his most recent decision not to run for governor because he's got a new contract with the Brazilian government just shows a total absence of principle in him and his ilk. <P> And don't even get me started on Bernard Kerik. <P> So yeah, go ahead and vote for Palin. Pretend she would be a great President. That just goes to show how little regard you really have for the country and how seriously you take the responsibility for our leadership.

    at the Vatican have condemned Avatar for portraying worship of nature instead of, well, dudes in funny robes. <P> From The Huffington Post <P> VATICAN CITY — The Vatican newspaper and radio station have called the film "Avatar" simplistic, and criticized it for flirting with modern doctrines that promote the worship of nature as a substitute for religion. <P> L'Osservatore Romano and Vatican Radio dedicated ample coverage to James Cameron's big-grossing, 3-D spectacle. But the reviews were lukewarm, calling the movie superficial in its eco-message, despite groundbreaking visual effects. <P> L'Osservatore said the film "gets bogged down by a spiritualism linked to the worship of nature." Similarly, Vatican Radio said it "cleverly winks at all those pseudo-doctrines that turn ecology into the religion of the millennium." <P> "Nature is no longer a creation to defend, but a divinity to worship," the radio said. <P> Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said that while the movie reviews are just that – film criticism, with no theological weight – they do reflect Pope Benedict XVI's views on the dangers of turning nature into a "new divinity." <P> Benedict has often spoken about the need to protect the environment, earning the nickname of "green pope." But he has sometimes balanced that call with a warning against neo-paganism. <P> In a recent World Day of Peace message, the pontiff warned against any notions that equate human person and other living things. He said such notions "open the way to a new pantheism tinged with neo-paganism, which would see the source of man's salvation in nature alone." <P> The Vatican newspaper occasionally likes to comment in its cultural pages on movies or pop culture icons, as it did recently about "The Simpsons" or U2. In one famous instance, several Vatican officials spoke out against "The Da Vinci Code." <P> In this case, the reviews came out after a red carpet preview held in Rome just a stone's throw from St. Peter's Square. The movie will be released Friday in Italy. <P> The story of the tall blue creatures who inhabit Pandora and contend with humans intent on grabbing the resources of their planet has made over $1.1 billion at box offices worldwide. Partly boosted by higher 3-D ticket prices, "Avatar" looks well on its way to becoming the biggest grossing movie of all time. <P> "So much stupefying, enchanting technology, but few genuine emotions," said L'Osservatore Romano, which devoted three articles to "Avatar" in its Sunday editions. <P> L'Osservatore Romano said the movie's plot is unoriginal and its message not new. It faulted Cameron for taking a "bland approach." <P> "He tells the story without going deep into it, and ends up falling into sappiness," it said. <P> Vatican Radio did say, however, that "really never before have such surprising images been seen," while L'Osservatore said the movie's worth lies in its "extraordinary visual impact."

That's not to say that they'd go for it, since the Na'vi's internet connection to Eywa versus Mary, God, Jesus, beings they can't see, hear, feel, know, isn't a fair fight.

    I was referring to her genuine cluelessness. But there is also a genuine ' tell it like she thinks' attitude about her that appeals to like minded folks who see most politicians as 'say anything to get elected' types. <p> Palin is a politician, and certainly will say 'anything' to get elected, but her persona seems to override that aspect of her career in the eyes of her fans. <p> Just because she tells it 'like she thinks' though, does not mean what she thinks is correct. And she is most often just plain wrong and ignorant. <p> I do not think kevin is serious about voting for her. He may hate Dems, but anyone smart enough to get Cerebus, would not be dumb enough to vote for the female Elrod. <p> Then again, Elrod had a helluva fan base. <p> Use the pointy end of the sword son, gets the job done quicker.

    Sarah Palin is very attractive and an extremely charismatic person, but is ignorant of foreign and domestic policy and shows no inclination to actually learn anything about such policies. Really I'm just waiting seven years from now when Hillary Clinton can run. She's the only politician I've seen over the last two years who actually seems like she has a clue and has done a very good job as Secretary of State. Sorry kids, but as a Republican I think we missed the boat on Hillary and should hav eelected her last year.

As for the Tea Partiers, they're the latest flash in the pan idea who deserve to be ignored. They are not so much intellegistas, but Couzin Clem and Lizzy Sue from the trailer park.

    Obama's family has more issues

    by Mike K

    YoyodynePropulsionSystems mentioned Obama not having any family issues. Here are a few of the embarrassing facts in Obama's family tree; Barry's brother George Hussein Onyango Obama lives in a hut in a ramshackle town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi, living on less than a dollar a month. Obama's aunt Zeituni Onyango is an illegal alien who was ordered deported from the US in 2004, but has ignored the order and is still living in public housing in Boston. Obams's grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama was a witchdoctor in Kenya. But he must have known some good spells, because he lived to the ripe old age of 105. Obama's father Barack Obama, Sr. was a polygamist, socialist, alcoholic who already had one wife and child in Africa when he met Obama's mother in Hawaii. He married Ann, making her his second wife (shades of "BIG LOVE"). Obama's father abandoned little Barry and Ann when Barry was only 2. Obama's father was killed while driving drunk in a car crash on the streets of Nairobi. In Obama's book, he mentioned that his father had been killed in a car crash, but he chose to omit the fact that his father had been driving drunk and had caused the crash himself. Barry was later abandoned by his mother Ann and he was raised by his grandparents. How can you talk about Palins family when Obama has all of this in his family history?

    Just because FOX gets higher ratings, doesn't mean it actually is BETTER. Old proverb: "An idea does not gain truth as it gains followers." Believe it. And, actually, where else would biased conservatives get their news that they feel is so "fair and balanced"? They have only ONE place to go, only ONE idiotic channel to listen to or else they'd be watching CNN and other channels that are actually the MOST fair (don't believe me? Ask Lou Dobbs, the guy who left CNN because it was TOO FAIR and didn't practice what he called "advocacy journalism"). Bottom line, FOX is for idiots, and there's no two ways about it. All the other intellectuals are spread out over the other channels--combine their viewership and you easily DESTROY the ratings FOX has. BUT, there's only ONE PLACE for idiotic conservatives to go (I'm a little bit of liberal AND conservative myself), and that's to FOX NEWS. End of story. We're all just floating...

    Sim was branded a misogynist not because of just what took place in the world of Cerebus - such as the rape of Astoria, and the portrayal of the Cirinists, but because of his 'tangents' in the back of the book where he all but admitted to being one.<p> His behavior -his psychotic behavior -and there is no other word for it, led to the near destruction of all he had created.<p> I started reading Cerebus in 1980. I stayed until the very bitter end. Through think and very thin. I read him throughout High School then into the Marines then after I got out. An amazing run. I saw him at his very height -and even met him during that time. A very gracious and soft spoken man. I kept reading him even as he hit the depths and beyond, it was at times, tortuous. I think he had something like 30,000 readers per months at his height which for an independent was astronomical. But he would up with something like 12,000 at the end. I was one of them.<p> I would vote for Lord Julius in a heartbeat. Elrod and his ilk only deserve the pointy end of the sword.

I know that if I struck up conversation with someone in a bar and said and expressed things in the way I see these anchors doing I be pretty certain I was talking to a bigot, and I'd tell him "Fuck You Buddy", down my pint and walk away. If you don't find Fox News distasteful and almost comically biased then I think you probubly have issues with race yourself. I'm not saying other news stations are not biased, but I don't see the blaitant racial sterio typing and pigeonholing I see on Fox. It actually disgusts me.

    My Main Problem With ALL Amercain News Stations

    by FreeBeer

    Is that all of them are biased one way or another. A news station should be completely neutral, because people need to have all the information to formed informed opinions of their own. Most people watch a single news station, so unless you have both views on a single station them the public are only getting half the story. The fact that ther eis one news station for right wing and one for left is insanity, it's fucking brainwashing

    by FreeBeer

    Than dedicated news channels in either Ireland or England or France. Irish News, BBC, Euronews, all hosted but expressionless Anchors who serve only to tell you the events of the day and nothing more. If an Anchor is interviewing two men from different political parties, then he or she will grill each party with equal vigor. Even Sky News, which is actually owned by Fox News I believe, isn't nearly as biased as it Amercan counter part. Sorry if I implied you were racist I know you are likely not, it's hard to condemn a station for being biased without it seeming as though you are implying its viewers are also. I'm sure most viewers don't realise how one sided and narrow minded Fox News is without being able to compare it to mostly impartial foreign media

    As a minority, I've always found it pathetic...

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    ...How desperately modern liberals cling to the "race card" and accuse those who don't agree with them as being racist. Especially considering that the KKK was created by and flourished under the political power of Democrats, a greater percentage of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of the 1960s than Democrats, liberal idiots like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright have made careers out of race-baiting and profited from stirring up conflict between blacks and whites, and Democrats from Obama to Reid and Bill Clinton think nothing of saying the most ignorant and insensitive things about people of different races.<p>What makes it so bad, though, is the completely blind hypocrisy liberals have regarding their racist behavior and attitudes. They self-righteously regard themselves as somehow "enlightened," but will be the first person to stab their white grandmother or their black "friends" in the back, if they think they can get away with it. All the while promoting programs like "Ebonics" and welfare dependence that do nothing more than keep minorities economically and socially crippled.<p>Conservative racists, at least, are honest about their feelings. Democrats lie CONSTANTLY about their racist attitudes and are the first ones to project those beliefs on anyone they happen to disagree with. The combination of stubborn ignorance and duplicity liberals employ is pretty disgusting, and it's sad that so many minorities — particularly blacks — have been hoodwinked into political slavery by them over the years... voting en masse for the Democrat Party year after year and getting little to nothing in return, based on the lie that Republicans are their enemies.<p> Unfortunately, things never change, it seems. The Democrats have simply traded in physical chains for psychological ones, in order to keep minorities "in their place." And FAR too many have become dependent and come to believe that they're better off tilling the Dems' fields, when the exact opposite is true.

    TheGhostWhoLurks: Conservative Racists


    . . . aren't being conservative. "Pure" conservatism is race and ethnicity neutral. A racist conservative is picking and choosing where they want to be conservative. Having objections to people based on the color of their skin or their ethnic background regardless of anything else is the antithesis of conservatism. You meet any racists who claim to be conservative, ask them how a philosophy of individual responsibility and individual freedom is compatible with judging somebody, or treating somebody differently, based on their lineage--a thing the individual has no control over. Or ask them what skin pigmentation has to do with individual merit. Etc.<br><br>Not much to do about liberal racists, as their racism is giving the compassionate blessing of their own conscience, as well as the blessing of the MSM, so nothing you can say will talk them out of the idea that certain ethnic groups with certain legacy can ever overcome their history, or the discrimination of others, without the help of (or complete dependence on) big-hearted liberal white people.

    Conservative vs. Liberal SCUM BAGS!!!!

    by bosskmr

    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him. If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect. If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down. If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!) If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

    Dark Doom, some questions for you, since you turned

    by Coughlins Laws

    this into an attack on Bush, somehow...<p>1) You honestly expected W himself to be in Iraq searching wharehouses and digging in sand dunes looking for WMDs that the entire Planet thought Saddam STILL had?<p>2) How did we start a war with the wrong country? Osama bin Laden was hiding in caves like a cockroach in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein violated 18 UN Resolutions that HE AGREED TO in order to stay in power, AND he kicked out Weapons Inspectors for 5 years and showed ZERO PROOF that he destroyed all his WMDs and WMD programs...<p>3)First of all, New Orleans was ORDERED evacuated, and the incompetent Democrat Mayor and Democrat Governor did NOTHING ABOUT IT. Second of all, what would you have had Bush do differently?<p>4)What exactly could Bush (or any President)have done differently with the intelligence we had? Would you have been for the round up of these 19 Muslims (most without records) before this happened? We can't even stop Muslim bombers from getting on planes NOW, AFTER 9/11 happened because of Political Correctnes...<p>5)Actually, the economy didn't deepen and unemployment didn't go over 10% until AFTER Obama was elected. Bush lost Congress in 2006. He's been a lame duck since 2007. What specifically do you think Bush did to cause a recession/depression, when Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have been running the country since January 2007?

    McGooCain: So, Which Do You Think It Is?


    "but you also think God favors putting dumb, incompetent people in power and you spew racism without knowing it, unless you are just trying to be funny."<br><br> I'm honestly curious. Sometimes I think I'm being too subtle. Or too oblique.<br><br>" you are just afraid of change which defines your political thought if you are a conservative,"<br><br>Well, I can't be too afraid of change, given that I used to be a pretty liberal fellow, and now I'm a pretty conservative fellow. Used to work in private industry, now I work for the (county) government. And I'd be all for certain kinds of change. Like big fat tax cuts across the board, that don't sunset or expire. Now, that's change I can believe in. Or, given liberals complain about tax cuts for the top 5%, lets see Democrats propose a nice fat tax cut for the bottom 95%. It's still change. And I'm not afraid. Bring it on!<br><br> I'm all for trying drug decriminalization, legalization of marijuana, etc. Just like Bill Buckley. That's change. All for giving it a go.<br><br>There are some change that I'm not for that you may not be for either: the Bush administration changed a pretty long standing tradition of not conducting pre-emptive wars with our venture into Iraq. I would prefer that we don't conduct pre-emptive wars. One example.<br><br> "it is more healthy to disagree with people rather than sit in an echo chamber of similar thought" <br><br>I think it's useful to both--the "echo chamber" can amplify and clarify and inform on issues, even if you already agree with the substance, yet it's good to listen to dissenting points of view, for much the same reason. That's why I'm said Air America is off the air in my area now. One of my favorite blogs is Ezra Klein, and I don't agree with him about much.<br><br>"it is THE LAWS that make people decide how to act morally, I am now convinced -- if there were not the threat of punishment hanging over certain acts"<br><br>Or consequences. Behavior is often modified or constricted by clear and immediate consequences (like enforced laws), and less so when consequences seem much less certain or the far in the future (laws that aren't enforced, the national debt, a steady diet of cheeseburgers). Whether one accepts or denies climate change, one of the problems the argument has is that consequences (if any) are well into the future, and attempts to make the issue seem more urgent seem disingenuous. New York will be flooded in 10 years? Didn't you say that 10 years ago?<br><br>"but the loopidy-loop way you say it leaves the thought a tad muddled"<br><br>My apologies. I'm trying to be as clear and brief as I can, but that's always more of an ongoing goal than an actual achievement.<br><br> As far as putting the Christ back in Christmas, you'd have to get rid of both the materialism and the commercialism of the holiday. Which seems highly unlikely. Who doesn't like getting a new DVD or two on Christmas?

    BTW, Bush Was a Big Spender


    Spent more and oversaw a larger growth of government than Bill Clinton did. So, Bush was no friend of the conservative in that area. While Obama's spending is well on the way to outstripping Bush (and every president before him), one cannot argue that Bush set any kind of example. He spent like a drunken sailor, and so did the Republican house and senate, when they had the reigns. There's something about the chance to spend other people's money that makes politicians on both sides go koo-koo for Cocopuffs.

    Well, hobocode, they promised that unemployment

    by Coughlins Laws

    wouldn't go over 8% if they passed their reckless spending bill (which didn't work), unemployment is now over 10% and looks to stay that high for another year or so. Also, Obama is trying to push through the Cap and Tax legislation, which will raise the average families energy bill about $3,000 a year (breaking his no new taxes on those making under $250,000 a year pledge). He's also pushing through the job-killing and Health Care Rationing Abortion of a plan in Congress, which will be a disaster and cause people to have their taxes raised on their Health Plans, force you to buy Health Care whether you want it or not, and send you to jail if you DON'T buy health insurance. That's just for starters. Anything else?

    Coughlins: But It Was Worse Than Bush Told Them


    So it's Bush's fault. Indeed, we may have the first president in history who can continue to blame things on the previous administration well into his second term. ;)<br><br>Healthcare, on top of Cap and Trade (or vice versa)--both plans with immediate costs and little or no immediate benefits--are not things likely to help the Democrats popularity. So, I'm all for them. I hope Obama gets Cap and Tax, and the sooner, the better. <br><br>And they will probably get Cap and Trade.

    accomplishments. After following Clinton's way of handling terrorism for the first 6 or so months of his term, he became much more aggressive and kept America safe for 7 and a half years.

In his personal life he was a very successful baseball owner, increasing the value of the team. He was an extremely successful and popular Governor of Texas. He's had some noteworthy accomplishments...<p>Let's look at Obama's accomplishments after Law School.... Uhhhhh, he gathered people on a street corner with a bullhorn... Uhhhh, he voted a record number of times for present, showing his lack of leadership skills and inability to make decisions in a timely manner.... Uhhhh, he failed miserably at getting the Olympics in Chicago. In fact, after all his glad handing and back slapping, Chicago was eliminated in the first vote... Uhhhh, he is so unpersuasive that he can't even get the super-majority of the Dems in Congress to pass his Health Care boondoggle without bribery and late night votes on weekends or get more than 40% of the American people to support him on Health Care... Uhhhh, despite the best press any President has gotten in history, he can't even maintain above 50% in approval after one year, cementing himself as the least popular President after one year in history...<p>I could go on and on with Obama failures if you want....

    But in practice, how are you supposed to move anything of any importance as part of a bipartisan effort? Democrats aren't going to support big tax cuts or deregulation or dumping cash into the military, Republicans aren't likely to support a big new social entitlements or nationalizing healthcare, etc. <br><br> Arguing that one politician or another is bad because they aren't "cooperating" or "collaborating" with their ideological opposites is silly. How do you cooperate when one person wants to do something and the other doesn't. And, in DC, you got to mix in the political disadvantages of cooperating and not. Does Obama's base want him to cooperate or seek the input of Republicans or conservatives, or compromise his initiatives based on the complaints of Republicans? Because that's what bipartisanship means.<br><br>Does the Republican base want Republicans to compromise, reach across the aisle, and do Democrat-lite? It would seem that most of them would not.

It's the same segment that likes catch phrases, bumper stickers and Cliff's Notes (they're also the same people who voted for Bush the 2nd time around). <P>I seriously doubt that folksy speech she employs is anything other than the way she actually speaks. But I don't think that makes her dumb, necessarily. <P> Essentially, I think she got in over her head, especially during that Katie Curic interview, and it blew up in her face.

    ...Considering that their party is on a self-destructive course towards political irrelevance thanks to their ongoing purge of even MODERATE Republicans from their ranks. If they would trouble themselves to watch the 60 MINUTES video, they'd find out that McCain was actually FORCED to drop his original choice of Lieberman in favor of Palin, whose big mouth, ignorance and weird political affiliations (including her own husband) probably cost him the election.<p> As if that wasn't enough, the GOP (including Palin) actually endorsed an entirely different political party (Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman) over their own candidate (Dierdre Scozzafava) in New York's off-year Representative election, because she was too moderate in her views, costing both parties the election. How's THAT for not possessing political "bigotry"?<p> While you guys talk up idealistic notions and try to blast the left with hyperbolic rhetoric, your actions betray what a bunch of dead-enders you truly are.

    thing is him making fun of Democrats for giving a pass to Harry Reid, the DEMOCRAT Senate Majority Leader, for saying that Obama got elected because he was a "light-skinned" black man who "didn't speak with a Negro-dialect" unless he wanted to. This is 1000% FACT that the Democrat leader in the Senate said this and it is also a fact that Democrats and liberals are giving him a pass for saying this. Limbaugh has been throwing this in their faces ALL WEEK LONG that they haven't tried to drive him out of office like they would have done to a Republican had he said something similar. Limbaugh does parody, satire, irony, etc, etc, etc. He points out hypocrisy. He makes fun of those in the media that give the most powerful Democrat in the Senate a pass for saying something racist by using the words they used to show that Democrats and liberals care NOTHING about racist comments if they come from a Democrat. You have fallen hook, line, and sinker. You are stupid. I didn't see you anywhere here show the outrage you have for Limbaugh using the wording of the racist Democrat Senate Majority Leader...<p>As far as telling people not to donate money to Haitian relief, that's a damn lie, too. He said he wouldn't give the money to Obama. See the difference? There are hundreds of different ways to donate money. He said he wouldn't give the money to the Federal Government. And why should you? The Federal Government, under Obama, overspends and spends Stimulus Money to create fictiscious jobs in Congressional Districts that don't exist. The Chairman of the Red Cross makes $350,000 a year. Sorry, I don't see the point in paying for his salary. The first 35,000 people who donate the $10 to the Red Cross through texting are paying the salary of the Head Honcho. The next people are paying for bureaucrats...

    why he said what he said, you STILL are calling him a racist, TOTALLY IGNORING that he is making fun of what the DEMOCRAT LEADER IN THE SENATE SAID!!! The whole point is, the Democrat Senate Leader is a racist, yet Democrats and liberals (like you) DO NOT CARE!!! However, when Limbaugh points out your hypocrisy by throwing a DEMOCRATS' words back in your faces, you call HIM the racist, for pointing out Democrats racism... You see, this is why less and less people buy into your racist attacks. It's your hypocrisy on issues like this. You allow REAL RACISTS to run the Democrat Party, and say NOTHING, yet attack those that point out their words as racist. Sorry, it simply doesn't work as much as it used to...

And he is a racist."<P>Didn't this angle on alleged Limbaugh racism come up so very recently with the NFL deal? Rick Sanchez of CNN was most prominent on the case. Limbaugh speaks 3 hours a day roughly 30 weeks each year. With that much saturation, SOMEthing would have leaked by now. Did any tapes ever surface? Wouldn't it be easy to connect the dots with SOMEthing by now?<P>And I hate Limbaugh. Google the site for plenty evidence about that too. His message resonates, yet his delivery sucks.

    Why is that? Because most of what you say is unbelievable? Kinda like how you're towing Rush Limbaugh's "media tweaked" my statements defense. Really. You give the him FAR too much credit. Because if Rush had any sense of class (a word I see you're rather keen on) and trully wanted to dispell any notions of how his comments were intended, he would donate a HUGE sum of his comfy, personal radio fortune to the people of Haiti instead of using the disaster as a means to make a piss poor political jab at a government he seeks to undermine and a president he increasingly attacks on a racial basis.

    Dude, you have GOT to be fucking kidding me...not only do you fail to see that a person who quits the only major political job she was elected to is pretty much a lost cause as a presidential contender (how do you answer THIS question in a debate, without losing points: "At what point would you consider it safe to resign your position as President, Ms. Palin?"), but you're stacking up her pathetic resume against Obama's?<p> ROFLMAO! The governor of Alaska represents 700,000 people Senator, Obama represented 12 million. As mayor of Wasilla, Palin represented 5400 State Senator, Obama represented AT LEAST 46,000 people in the Illinois 13th district (that's how many voted for him...but he represented all that didn't, as well). The communities organization he ran itself dwarfed the entirety of Wasilla.<p> Cripes, I'm sorry this thread is "dead" and others won't see your loose grasp of numbers and lame rationalizations.

    states should be exempt from public service? Nancy Pelosi is Congresswoman over only tens of thousands of people, is that too little to be Speaker of the House? Harry Reid is only a Senator from Nevada, is that a big enough state for you? Obama was an unknown state senator from the projects in the Illinois state senate who was too much of a pussy to take a stand on tough issues, therefore voting present a record number of times, showing his lack of courage to be a leader. Then he was a US Senator for 158 days before spending nearly 3 years running for Senate. He was in the Minority in the Senate when he did this. Obama has ZERO accomplishments. He totally wasted his law degree, using it to be a Community Organizer. What does that mean? He gathered a mob on a street corner with a bullhorn like Al Sharpton?

No fair going all the way back to the 60s or 70s, before you were born, either. 'Cause I can think of several "conservative" (which DEFINITELY includes Dubya...and don't pull that fucking bullshit of saying "he wasn't a conservative"...neither you nor the GOP ever formally disowned him now, did you?) policies that have royally fucked this country. Like the war in Iraq. Or Bush's retarded prescription program, which is where that MASSIVE deficit Obama inherited really came from. Or expanding warrantless wiretapping to include American citizens (not just terrorists, mind you...that was legal since the 90s). Or suspending habeas corpus.<p> The list goes on.

    The examples you point out--the war in Iraq and Medicare Part D--are two extremely non-conservative things Bush did that most of the conservatives in the base thought were crazy. And expanding warrantless wiretapping was about listening to calls originating in America to suspected terrorists overseas, as I recall. Which I support. If it was strictly to listen to you, then I apologize. I completely don't support that. <br><br> They never suspended habeas corpus. Which you gotta know. Only one president has ever done that, and he was, indeed, a Republican. Abraham Lincoln. The heartless bastard. <br><br>The list? Starts with the Reagan tax-cuts, ends with the Bush tax-cuts. Boom!

    tax cuts which add to the deficit

    by Immortal_Fish

    "The '01 and '03 tax cuts added over $2 billion to the deficit."<P>That reeks of how "trickle-down economics don't work." Which, of course, is preposterous. If the average taxpayer does nothing with their earnings but bank it -- they've already positively contributed to the economy. Simply put, banks DO SOMETHING with that banked money. And that money has a butterfly effect.<P>Anyhow, back to your point... yes, tax cuts result in INITIAL negative intake, which results in a negative addition to the deficit, INITIALLY. ON PAPER.<P>You're (clearly) a liberal. You don't need me to explain how this INITIAL deficit registers INITIALLY. But here goes anyway -- Less taxing means less intake during the FIRST financial year. DUH!!<P>When people have more money in their pockets, they spend it. And it is amazing how that market works. It's a de-facto representation of how this country works, you know...

    Banks do not do something with the banked money

    by just pillow talk

    that's part of the current problem, among other things.<p>Tax cuts do nothing to grow the economy, which is what we really need. And how the hell is the deficit "only on paper"?? That was real cash that went out, along with the millions wasted on sending out notices letting people know that they are getting a rebate check. <p>So you have no problem with people spending their rebate checks (adding to the deficit), but the government not spending (adding to the deficit)? <p>What the Obama Administration has failed at is job creation. But that has more to do with creating new markets/industries where we can create, and hopefully keep, jobs here in the U.S.
