Hate Mail

I get more email than I suspected I might for this site, especially given that I don't really promote it much. Mostly your mail is in general agreement and support of my feelings towards "Mama Grizzly" but sometimes I get some dissenting mail and I've decided to post some of these (with out full names of course) and chat through the hate mail. This is unedited except for the removal of the hater name.

To hate someone for not seeing the world as you do shows how small and insignificant you really are.

Isn't it funny how far left people such as yourself claim to come from a position of change and tolerance and openness, yet all the hatred comes directly from people like you. Heck it is even in the name of your pathetic website.

I feel sorry for you.

Dear K,

Your generalization of why I hate Sarah Palin simply shows that you haven't read my first blog. There's a lot of people I don't agree with on a lot of issues that I don't hate. I don't even hate you K, despite your name-calling. If you had read my first blog, you might have gotten that one of my main issues with Sarah Palin is how she spreads her poison through "folksy" talk, pretending to stand up for the little guy, when in fact, she represents the interests of Corporate America. She is a crafty hypocrite, interested in mostly in manipulating our country to benefit her all-consuming quest for power.

She is generally uninformed on the topics she chooses to stick her nose in and relies on sound bytes without substance full of sarcastic and hateful speech to fire up the mass. I am not far left or a socialist. I'm not sure that my more left friends would even call me progressive although I like to think that I am. But that doesn't matter to you really - I must be far-left, liberal elite for "picking on" your dear Sarah Palin.

I guess if I and everyone else who hates Ms. Palin really were small and insignificant, you wouldn't have bothered writing. Thanks for your empathy, but rest assured, you don't have to feel sorry for me - I do this for the love of it.

Girl Friday

PS - You might not want to send hate email from your work email address. Lucky for you, I'm not really as full of hate as you think, otherwise I might have signed you up for a bunch of unsavory spam.

Sarah Palin passively-agressively calls our President "un-American"

First off, the fact that there was a tea party rally in the formerly-great (aka pre-the election of Scott Brown) is gross, just gross.

My mom called and said "my buddy" was yacking on the Boston Common today. Huffington Post kindly condensed her 20 minute speech into a 3 minute highlight reel that contains such gems as:

"Do you love your freedom?!!!?"
"...stealing opportunity in this land of opportunity..."
"I'm not calling anyone un-American" (ps - yes you are)
"Just because we can does not mean you should"
"When they say 'yes we can', we're all going to say 'oh no you don't'"

Okay. Can't watch the whole thing a 2nd time if you want more classic Sarah Palin rhetorical awesomeness, watch the video for yourself below.

If you watch this on a laptop, try not to throw your computer across the room.

I especially love the closing line by whoever the Teabagger jackass that thanked her. Even if Sarah Palin isn't offended, I'm offended for her.

dirty dirty community organizer

This morning Senator David Vitter, R-La., announced to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference:

"If that's the choice in 2012, I'll take a TV personality over a community organizer any day,"

This, *this* is why I tend to want to HATE the whole damn Republican party. Instead of finding a credible candidate to take on the so-sneered community organizer on real issues and debate, they're satisfied with letting that woman run around spouting bullshit, rallying up the crazies of the tea party "movement", making terrible jokes about threats of violence, and then say that they would take her, her who quit the job running her own state to lead this country. They would turn our economically-depressed, obese, ever-more-poorly educated nation over to a mother of a teenage-mother who *still* pushes for abstinence even when she has seen first hand that it doesn't work, a woman who's greatest ambition is for attention, a woman who stated she had foreign policy experience because of proximity to Russia.

The GOP will cut off it's nose to spite it's face. It's lazy. It's irresponsible. And it better backfire. If it doesn't - Europe, here I come.

Dear Sarah: You won't go away so neither will I.

Dear Sarah:

I'm very sad that you've forced me to recommence writing these posts but you just can't go away, can ya?

I'm watching your speech at the Tea Party convention and am quite literally nauseated. You're full of digs towards our president and smug bullshit about the Massachusetts election. You chastise others for using a teleprompter, and yet you have notes written on your hand.

You are power hungry and it is palatable. It is clear from the moment you walk onto the stage to the cheers of the poor "regular" folks who you rally. You speak of revolution yet you represent big business and the oppression of a woman's right to choose. You call on God and Patriotism and twist the words of the founding fathers, pandering to the crowd. You couldn't wield power with the Republican Party and so now you are lending your special brand of crazy to the Tea Party Nation in a desperate attempt to keep yourself in the spotlight.

I see you might be up for a little race in 2010, according to your cronies at Faux News.

Bring it on Sarah.

We the people, the people that do not mock the idea of hope and change, that realize progress takes time, that believe diplomacy is not something tackled with weapons and armies but with discussion, that understand that climate change is real, and that health care for all is worth some sacrifice, we are ready for you. We are ready for your rabble-rousing rhetoric, for your smirking asides, and false patriotism that supports only those ideals which YOU support.

Bring it on because we are ready to take you down for once and for all.
