“Her Thighness, Hillary Clinton!”

(Future President of the United States?)

Why is it that female politicians are frequently described by their looks and not by their positions and actions? If looks were the only criteria, Halle Berry would be President of the United States  and Sarah Palin would be……………………… Sarah Palin.

“I quit! Give me a million bucks!”

What is it about America and female politicians? Barbara Boxer hears that her hair is so “Eighties?” Does that mean that Carly “I screwed HP out of millions” Fiorina is a better candidate because her “hair is perfect?”

(Homage to Warren Zevon.)

Give me a freakin’ break! Golda Meir was far, far from being pretty. Did she do a good job as Prime Minister of Israel? Margret Thatcher would have gone home alone, even at closing time, at her local pub. Hell, she would have gone home alone at closing time in the House of Lords.

Benazir Bhutto was an attractive woman. They killed her. They killed  Anna Politkovskaya in Chechnya, too.  Indira Gandhi was also assassinated in India in 1984.

Why is Palin considered to be “hot” and Hillary is not?

Well, if attractiveness is the criteria, then Sarah is a little higher on the scale than Hillary. After all, she is about twenty years younger and has had a “boob job.”

If brains are the criteria, then Hillary is way ahead and Sarah is somewhere around ………………………… dead last.

Would Farrah Fawcett have made a good president?

Would Jayne Mansfield been a good president – she had great boobs.

Should we have voted for Beyonce Knowles?

Hillary Clinton is smart, dedicated, analytical, understanding and a great asset to the Obama administration. If it were not for the “Clinton baggage” I would have supported her for the 2008 Democratic nomination for President.

But time has taken a toll on her body. The boobs have sagged a bit and the thighs are a bit larger now.

Will America vote based on cup size or will America vote based on who is the best candidate for the job?

Lately, I am thinking that America is more concerned about boobs than results.

And yes, there are many jokes in that last statement.

What is Meant by the Statement that “America is a Christian Nation”?

This Washington Post article examines the question of what is meant by the assertion that America is a Christian nation.  They cover the 1790s treaty that asserted we were not a Christian nation, Andrew Jackson’s efforts to resist the starting of a Christian political pary, and Lincoln’s burying of a Christian amendment to the constitution.

The article also describes the statements made Obama that led to him being seen as a non-Christian.  Sarah Palin’s assertions that we are a Christian nation are described as well.

The article finally asks the question what do we mean when we say America is a Christian nation?  What are your thoughts?

Female Republican Politicians

The Republican caucus is already all white, and is mostly all men, with only four females.

When Palin surfaced on the national scene in 2008, conservatives who had never shown the slightest interest in women immediately began touting her as the new face of female politics.  Before her campaign went south, even liberals like MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch called Palin the new “feminist ideal.” Effusing about her gorgeous appearance in her signature tight skirts, he opined, “Women want to be her, men want to mate with her. It’s as simple as that… If women live up to that feminist ideal, “men can take in” and “women can celebrate” a “woman in power.”

But Republicans are popping out Palin variations all over the place. Women are making impressive showings in at least four Republican primaries where the GOP stands a reasonable chance of taking the Senate seat in the general.

Truthful or Agenda Driven?

Does Joan Walsh have a point about these unnamed sources?   Is this another book that is clearly one of those that people will see what they want to see and disregard those parts that don’t fit their personal agenda?

Looking ahead

With President Obama’s ratings getting lower on a daily basis, I’ve heard everyone is pretty much in agreement that there will be a competitive race in 2012 and reappointing Obama president by acclamation now seems very unlikely.

So, who is passing the purity tests, looking good, and will make the race competitive?  Should we trust the math presented by Fox News?

Sarah the Instant-Pundit Urges Obama to Boycott Copenhagen

I swear, Palin is posting under a nickname on the WEBlog.  If one reads her rants about the “Climate-gate Emails” – one can’t help but wonder if several conservative posters at the WEBlog are her ghost writers.

I know conservatives complain that global climate change folk are frightened “Henny Pennys”.  I think what is much more frightening is that Palin has been given a national stage to spew her stupidity.  Exhibit One:  This WashPo Editoral.

Just to clarify, I am not here to stifle the free speech rights of one Sarah Palin, rather I am here to encourage their expression.  Despite her best intentions, Palin has done more for the adoption of informed policies than any Republican in a long, long time.

Palin and Obama’s Reversal of Fortune?

The ultra-conservative New York Post recently commented on the reversal of fortunes of Palin and Obama.  This time last year Obama was the sensation, this year it is Palin’s turn.

To quote the article:

Palin-Media Relationship: Co-dependent? Surely not!

Sarah Palin’s battle with the “Elite-Media” has always been  her odyssey, regardless of whatever else she might say.  She needs them; they, to a lesser degree, need her…

Politico nails the relationship here.

Sad, but true…

Palin-Beck 2012?

The end of the world as we know it? In an interview with Newsmax, Palin says that she’d consider Glenn Beck as a running mate if she ran for president in 2012. “I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I’m not there yet,” Palin says. “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he’s so bold—I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective.”

She has no brains!  She sets back the goal of women being respected as equal.  She embarrasses women with critical thinking skills.

What Would Levi Say at the Thanksgiving Dinner?

Palin Wasilla HeartthrobIn an effort to reduce “the drama” that has been part of her family’s conflicts with Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin supposedly invited him to her family’s Thanksgiving dinner

I am sure this was done with a sincere interest in resolving the problems, but if he showed up, can anyone imagine what Johnston would say to the future First Family members? Talk about awkward family gatherings…

The Palinite Putsch?

sarah_palin_5[1]Eugene Robinson comments in his column today that recently there has been some good news and some bad news for the GOP.  The good news is that with tea bag parties, the base has been riled up and they are active.  The bad news is 1) the base is too small to pull off any national or many regional election victories, and 2) the far right led by such rightwing stars as Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are helping the GOP cannibalize their own.

A state congressional district election in a solidly Republican part of Upstate New York, elected a Democrat Bill Owens.  This occurred because rightwing GOP operatives ran, their candidate, Dede Scozzafava, out of the race due to her unacceptable positions on gay rights and abortion.  Erick Erickson [not the famous psychoanalyst, but instead with the conservative RedState.com] said, “This is a huge win for conservatives. . . . We did exactly what we set out to do — crush the establishment-backed GOP candidate.”

Here is to hoping for more “huge wins” like that for the GOP.

Speaking of “huge”, I have heard [Not that I have any first hand knowledge…] that there are a number internet porn actresses posing as Sarah Palin-like characters.  The above photo [I don’t know if it was photo-shopped] helps me see why this phenomenon might be happening.  I am no expert on such matters, but if that image wasn’t photo-shopped, those have to be fake.

Palin’s Co-Author Hints at Going Rogue’s Slant

LynnSarahWorldMagazine[2]Lynn Vincent, Palin’s co-author for her upcoming book gives hints as to what the finished product will look like. 

 This Politico article suggests: “Palin’s choice of Vincent suggests that her [book] will be, emphatically, a partisan tract.  And it is of a piece with a post-election posture in which the nation’s most intensely popular, and most intensely unpopular, Republican has chosen to deepen her bond with her base at the cost of antipathy from the independent voters who decide presidential elections.”

Vincent assisted with the book of General William Boykin, whose military career ended when he preached from the pulpit about our country’s holy war with Islam.  Vincent believes that one in ten Muslims are peaceful and the remainder warrent careful monitoring. Terming Vincent’s political posturing as being on the side of fascism is a little mild, actually.

There are already signs that Palin’s book will be a huge best-seller.  Hopefully the book will get the word out about Palin and she will become the laughing-stock she so richly deserves to be.

Saturday, 08/08/09, Public Square


This made me think of the Republian Party.  They don’t have a leader (well unless you count Rush or Palin or other ludicrous pretenders) and they are envious.  I think it explains the ‘birthers,’ the ‘tea-baggers,’ and the ‘health-care reform disrupters.’
