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.
