Debating Whether Sarah Palin is Fucking Retarded or Just a Moron is Not Cost Effective

I have hit this mark before and I will hit it again now: We keep hearing about the so-called Independents in this election. Yet some one has to say it: What kind of utter fucking retard does not know where he or she stands at this point in the election cycle?


Look, John McCain is a mendacious opportunist who, in choosing Sarah Palin, utterly abandoned everything he once claimed to care about. Foreign affairs? Off the table. Nor can any serious case can be made for Sarah Palin giving a shit about anything related to policy within the United States. Why are we catering to these utter fucking morons? Why has the GOP become the party of not only stupidity (the last eight years have made that clear) but of willful ignorance?


I seriously challenge any conservative to explain to me this race, McCain's approach, the Sarah Palin phenomenon, or simply a rationale for a victory that, at least for now, seems elusive. Obama is smarter than McCain. But we've long known that. Would that we had the McCain from 2000. Instead, we have a McCain who loathes himself from eight years ago.


One might ask the obvious question: Why would anyone want to be president now? Other than so that Sarah Palin, Pied Piper of the fuckwit brigade, cannot be?


Remember when Republicans had integrity? OK, me neither. But remember when they pretended to? Vaguely? Me too.


Oh -- and if you actually know how to get Osama bin Laden, how exactly is it putting country before self not to, you know, make that plan clear? Granted: President Bush could fuck up adding the chocolate chunks to a chocolate chunk cookie recipe. Still: If you know how to solve the problem, shouldn't you either share the solution or recognize and acknowledge that the current regime always finds banana peels on which to slip?


Obama > McCain. But then sentient people have known that for a while.

The only thing I can point to is this and, though it's a bit unfair, this.

There are idiots out there: we don't come into enough contact with them in academia, or they learn to keep their heads down and pass through.

I've been saying this for awhile now--

The fact there are undecided minds out there, the fact McCain is still pulling down over 40% of the vote--

it's further evidence that our educational system is failing. Big time.

Ahistoricality --
I'm not even certain how unfair either depiction is. desperation is beginning to set in and it is becoming clear that the right's wingnuts are beginning to speak out. The racists have become vocal at Palin and McCain events without the candidates speaking out. They are not racist, but they are countenancing racists.

Matt --
There is smart and principled conservatism. We just are not seeing it from this candidate and certainly not from his running mate.

Hope these hyperlink. If not, copy and paste. The second one is really worth it. Leave it to the Brits to tell it like it is.

Damnit, that didn't work. I'll try this again.
