Barack Obama commented on Sarah Palin's speech, "Uh...uh...mmm...uh...Sarah Palin's...uh...uh...uh...tele...uh...teleprompter...uh...broke???"

God I love this woman. Imagine a female on the national scene who doesn't scare the hell out of me, or for that matter small children and animals either (Hillary and Pelosi)

It'll be interesting to see if Obama can get back on his game after this. Obama the malignant narcissist is used to being the center of attention, savior, and rising star, all wrapped up in one tidy package of fawning adulation. The notion that there's someone else getting the attention and being the new new rising star is gonna require some rapid and substantial adjustments in his worldview.

Like Saracuda said, Obama has spent his life writing memoirs. He is not used to actually doing anything, such as, for example, not being worshipped. I am watching and waiting to see what happens next.

PS - Joe Biden, in an act of moral bravery, has now declared, after a week of brutal and disgusting character assaination by the media, and getting trounced by Palin's speech, that her family life should be off limits. Anyway, is Biden still alive? I thought he died of old age or something. Or retired or something. What? Joe Biden is going to debate Saracuda? Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Palin is a real person unlike Obama who is like some kind of robot spouting Marxist talking points.

On the way to work I saw a couple of union flunkies with Obama shirts. I felt sorry for the useful idiots.

BushCo attempts to kill Obama's brother in Kenya with hail stones using Pentagon weather control machine as part its racist plot to turn Africa WHITE! Either that or maybe it was just Global Warming.

"Freak hailstorm turns part of tropical Kenya white Wed Sep 3, 11:00 AM ET

NAIROBI (Reuters) - A huge hailstorm turned parts of central Kenya white, thrilling residents most of whom had never experienced such conditions, officials said on Wednesday.

Hailstorms are usual in some parts of Kenya, which straddles the equator, but the ferocity of the storm in Busara, 255 km (158 miles) northwest of the capital was unprecedented.

Excited villagers pelted each other with snowballs while some ate pieces of the icy sheet that formed over an entire hillside.

"We thought a big white sheet had been spread, so we decided to come and see for ourselves. We thought that it was Jesus [Barack Obama] who had come back," one villager told reporters."

May I present to you Sarah Palin cartoons. 46 and counting.

In a desperate attempt to discredit Sarah Barracuda, a Boston editorial spouts,

Palin herself told Vogue magazine, "A reporter once asked me about it (her appearance) during the campaign, and I assured him I was trying to be as frumpy as I could by wearing my hair on top of my head and these schoolmarm glasses."

Good Heavens! If this is "Frumpy" Sarah, well, uh, uh, uh, uh, YIKES!

Obama's favorite mayor is going down. Obama thought Kwame Kilpatrick was "a great mayor" and "doing an outstanding job."

And he though Sarah Palin was dumb hick mayor of a pissant mountain town.

What excellent judgment.

Posted by: V the K at September 4, 2008 10:33 AM

Gee, you mean Obama was FOR Kwame before he was AGAINST him?" I'm sure Obama will say (maybe he already has)that he's "disappointed" in his old friend.

Gloria Steinem whines and seethes about Saracuda, doing her level-best impersonation of someone whose opinion matters to anyone.

McCain campaign inundated with demands from the media that Sarah Palin provide a DNA sample to prove she is the mother of her downs baby:

Gloria Steinem called Sarah "Phyllis Schlafly only younger".
That's high praise indeed. We need more women who deserve that comparison in public life.

Just read the Jesse Jackson was hospitalized with "severe stomach pains". I suspect a whole bunch of Obamists are experiencing that affliction today ;-)

Rob - thank you. Really. That's the funniest damn thing I've seen in ages.

I am watching John McCain's speech and boy are the moonbats flying around the Energy Center. Jeez, there is another Bull Dyke running down the stairs with her hairy armpits showing. When is it open season for moonbats? I've got a .44 at the ready and my finger is wrapped tight around the trigger.

McCain/Palin '08 AND '12 and Palin/Whoever '12 and '16

General Jack D. Ripper - you should check out BlameBush .. your satirical conspiracy theorimizering would fit right in there. Plus it's possiblythe funniest blog around. Unfortunately it's been invaded by leftie trolls of late.

If Barb ‘Twit’ Boxer has come out of hiding against Palin = Liberal Fear is Real!

Howard Dean and Obama are getting the usual (NOW) suspects out to the ATTACK!
Oh, the IRONY - Barbara Boxer calls Sarah Palin an extremist

Rob Banks - SNORT!

I second PabloD, the most stupid funny thing I've seen in quite a while.

Thank you Sir! Made my day.

Where I origionally come from, tree huggers only dull the chainsaw blade a 'little bit' until you get to the tree.

They scream when you cut them; the tree huggers, not the trees.

Trees are not thinking beings. They have no feelings.

The tree huggers in the video you presented are thinking beings, but they have no rational feelings.

Its all the same to me.

'Cut' em all and let god (or the sawmill) sort em out!

John McCain isn’t Ronald Reagan, which is the principal reason I don’t like the guy.

He also may be a tad too old to begin the job as POTUS. As with family, I feel free to mention that and not be accused of age-ism since he’s not much older than I am.

In addition, McCain had that “Keating Five” stink of twenty years ago in which he was a very minor player, along with four Democrats who played much larger roles in the Lincoln Savings and Loan mess which cost taxpayers $2,000,000,000. For a review of that scandal and McCain’s part, see

I’m also not too crazy about McCain’s past social life. After his return from a 5 1/2 year incarceration and torture as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton, he was a changed man, for obvious reasons. He returned to discover that his wife, Carol, was crippled and disfigured. He caroused, met and fell in love with Cindy, and he and Carol divorced amicably some years later. But the fact that Carol McCain can still say, “He’s a good guy,… ‘We are still good friends. He is the best man for president” says not only a great deal about her but about her former husband and father of their three children.

For a one-sided account of that time in John McCain’s life, see, a decidedly negative article in a decidedly liberal British newspaper. More relevant would be his recent expression of regret for that episode in his life.

All that said and before I’m lambasted for mentioning what Democrats will dredge up over the next two months anyway, despite his many flaws, Senator John S. McCain is one of us....
