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.

Good to go. If it matters, I'm a vet of these current conflict, combat tested and very disappointed in the most of what goes on but seriously, where was this "tea party" group when we when in there? where is this party on the b.s. wmd that anyone has yet to answer for.. B.S. Socialism, seriously, in my city and state I have ppl upset over a 2cent food tax, and we have over a 2billion dollar revenue short fall. Plus were about to lay off 350 officers and 120 firefighters to cut the budget.. Oh did i mention a certain party wants to pass a bill to give large corporations a tax break this year,while my wife and I made combined $61,000 and we owe $1000 in federal and $800 in state.. Sweet right.. So keep it going.. and btw, I really hate Sarah Palin. If that's how they breed them in Alaska then sorry you can stay right up there next to Canada.. We don't need you in the lower 48.

She's a grade A #1 Idiot. What's scary is that people want her to represent us. She's just a pretty puppet.... pretty stupid.

You know I don't want to call people stupid, because then you'll never be able to have a real conversation with them - which is 1/2 the problem between the two parties right now. Everyone's just out to get everyone else and we the people end up suffering. What I don't understand is how someone like Sarah Palin is exciting/appealing to people when she's got the intellect of a flea? I mean I guess a huge part of it is the "common people" thing but shit - I am common people, did not grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth and yet I want someone that's better than me, not *like* me to lead.

I also don't understand how the tea partiers don't understand that the 8 years that GWB put us through are a huge part of what got us to where we are today.
