GOP--Keeping the Creep in Veep

So Sarah Palin says: "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."

The Ivory soap convention crowd (99.44 percent "pure") thought that was a wonderful line. So for Republicans that line must mean either: 1) all community organizers do nothing, 2) Barack Obama the community organizer did nothing (he is a lazy you-know-what after all), 3) community organizers work in neighborhoods where Republicans don't live.

And then there was her lie (no, not line, lie) of the night, which is saying something for this group:

We tend to prefer candidates who don't talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco. As for my running mate, you can be certain that wherever he goes, and whoever is listening, John McCain is the same man.

Well, unless McCain's trying to impress the locals in Pittsburgh (so very far from Scranton) about how much he loves the Steelers. For he changed his story about what defensive line he named to his North Vietnamese torturers instead of his actual platoon mates. It's a good thing he doesn't try to make much of how his POW experience was crucial to his character or anything.

He's the same man alright--everyone to anyone. Crooks and Liars even cataloged 10 flip-flops in just under three weeks this past June, in minor little issues like Social Security, balancing the budget, defense spending, and domestic surveillance. Go read about that here. I guess if Palin gets to be VP, she can fire all the librarians who refuse to ban books, magazines, and websites that tell the truth.

More than the NRA membership, being a member of that secessionist group, or her crusading speech on youtube, what scares Rickey most about Palin is her attack on the library in Alaska. Not a lot of people are focusing on it, good job bringing it up.

This GOP Convention is making me ill nightly. Rotting red meat, festering under the heat of all that vitriol and anger coming from the stage and the audience.

I hate them, every one of them.

Hey, if you need levity, there's always the Ron Paul convention...

The library thing is really a problem for me. But considering what she, ahem, "stands for," certainly, not surprising.

She reminds me of everything I dislike about lily white, bible-totin', holier-than-thou America. In fact, she PERSONIFIES it.

Mostly, last night was infuriating. So much so that Around the Keg is actually taking a break from the political coverage to do some tongue-in-cheek simply because we are collectively burned-out and the RNC was so overwhelmingly gross that we didn't know where to begin.

One theme that popped-up in her speech last night (that was little more than a High School valedictorian speech) was the "dangerous world we live in."

Fear, by another name.

More of the same-ol' same-ol'.

The other thing that I do love is how they are running against theior own party. We need change in Washington, and McCain will deliver it! Becauee if one thing can change what 8 years of republican rule gave us, is more Republican rule!

When you got nothin' else, attack the "liberal" media, literally in the case of jailed Amy Goodman. Apparently the question, "Who are you and what's your record?" is too invasive , and asking protesters what they're protesting an act of terrorism.

I listened on NPR and her voice reminded me of Kristen Wiig doing the Target lady on SNL.

I'm very depressed today ... This woman has given the GOP exactly what they needed: positive press and excitement. I fear that the stupid country is going to fall in love with this woman's story and not even care about her (very scary) positions. I mean, you should hear the media falling all over themselves to praise her this morning.

Why do I have this queasy feeling in my gut that her speech last night just handed McCain the election? Man, I feel ill.
