The Campaign that Fell to Earth

ABC reports:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin continued the Republican ticket's attempt to tie Sen. Barack Obama to what it calls socialist economic policies, attacking in new language Obama's plans to offer tax credits to those paying no income taxes and saying that "now is no time to experiment with socialism."

At an airport rally in Roswell, N.M. on Sunday afternoon, the Republican vice presidential nominee once again invoked Joe Wurzelbacher, now widely known as "Joe the Plumber," pushing Wurzelbacher's contention that Obama's tax plan sounded like socialism.

Palin went on to say, "'Artie the Alien' is also against this plan. Back on Artie's home planet--and I can see it from Alaska as we're higher on the globe and closer to the sky--they tried wealth distribution and discovered it was socialism. All the rich people, the whole 5% of top earning extra-terrestrials, said so. And if people with green skin can figure that out, so can John McCain with his melanoma-eaten skin. Which might be why it's so thin. Oh, wait, I think I just channeled Tina Fey, there--actually made a smart thought. They probably laughed at that too in the non-pro-America areas of this great nation."

Hah, funny stuff. And who the hell holds a campaign rally at Area-51? And how do saucer men from Mars fit in with Palin's religious beliefs?

I am sure there is some fucking thing in Revelations about martians. That book seems to be a catch-all book for Christians, full of things that are only attributed to that book but are not actually in that book. Preachers can get away with it because nobody sane can read or understand Revelations.
