Ridiculous Overkill

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at November 14, 2009 11:11 AM

How much does the left-wing press hate/fear Sarah Palin? Well, the Associated Press assigned no fewer than 11 writers to fact-check her book, Going Rogue.

11 guys to read Sarah Palin's memoir and look for errors. How many guys did the AP assign to fact check the books Barack Obama "wrote?" For that matter, did the AP assign anyone to read the PelosiCare Bill? Or, did they just repeat what Nancy Pelosi's flacks told them to say about it?

These eleven guys, working 'round the clock, dug deep into the text and found a grand total of six "errors." Not only that, but this is what they count as an error:

PALIN: Says she made frugality a point when traveling on state business as Alaska governor, asking "only" for reasonably priced rooms and not "often" going for the "high-end, robe-and-slippers" hotels.
THE FACTS: Although she usually opted for less-pricey hotels while governor, Palin and daughter Bristol stayed five days and four nights at the $707.29-per-night Essex House luxury hotel (robes and slippers come standard)...

So, in other words, the genius writers at the Ass Press don't know the different between "not often" and "never."

Catching flak from the same press that makes Levi Johnston the most glorified deadbeat dad since Kwame Kilpatrick

Meanwhile, Powerline, without the aid of full-time played Columbia Journalism grads at their disposal, fact-checks the fact-checkers.

If they really want job security then they might try fact-checking Obama.

I like Sarah Palin, but I'm not sure if I want her to run for office (at least at this time). She could be the one candidate that could SO energize the leftist base that it could backfire. By that I mean, the left really has no core, no issues that they are truly passionate for. But they TRULY are passionate AGAINST Ms. Palin.

That said, she must scare the piss out of the libs. I've never seen or heard such knee-jerk, instantaneous hatred directed at a person in my life.

Posted by: Wyatt's Torch at November 14, 2009 12:08 PM


It just creates more interest in her book. Sarah will laugh all the way to the bank.

RE: Posted by: Wyatt's Torch at November 14, 2009 12:08 PM

Sarah Palin is no longer in office and not running for anything......and the Left is STILL utterly terrified of her.

She is tremendously valuable to the Conservative cause as political spokeswoman and activist, She can speak plainly about what others can't, and can serve as a lightning rod and distraction to the Left,

She also reveals the Left's true colors, and the MSM complicity in promoting the Neofascist / Socialist / Leftist agenda, every time they open their mouth about her.

The uncertainty about her running for President is good....it keeps the Right energized and the Left off balance.

Even if she never runs for or holds public office again, I think she's here to stay.

Posted by: TonyD95B at November 14, 2009 12:24 PM


Wyatt's, regardless of who fears Palin for whatever reason, at the end of the day, she'll never make it as a credible contender for the POTUS. While she has in fact "energized" the GOP base, that energy will not be enough to pull off a 2012 win. She was introduce to the political stage as a Hail Mary pass or a desperation attempt for the McCain team as they knew they were in trouble. Repeating the same canned speeches with the same practiced voice inflections along with precision timed winks while hiding from the press and never taking town hall questions won't work in the POTUS bid.
If you look back at 10-2008, something like 90% of Republicans approved of Palin yet something like 74% admitted that she wasn't ready to lead the country. Now, with the field wide open and top Reps coming up for a run, she'll be squashed. The reason is because as a serious candidate, she's a fraud and her ignorance, incompetence, and inexperience will once again be exposed. That's the reason AP was so interested in fact checking. They know she's a fraud and that she was only picked by McCain because she fit the suit. It's just like when Jon Stewart exposed Sean Hannity for cropping the Tea Party events in order to make them appear larger. Hannity apologized to Stewart and Stewart responded with "He didn't have to apologize to me. It's not like he disappointed me. I expect that stuff". And that's why AP dug into her book--they expected it and they found it, regardless of how much Gregory wants to downplay it.

Good point. The Puffington Host was recently whining that books by conservatives should be put on a separate best-seller list. It's just not fair that books by Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Sarah Palin --- despite zero publicity from the NYTimes Review of Books or any of the network morning chat shows --- sell hundreds of thousands of copies. Meanwhile, despite prominent promotion by the MSM, books by Nancy Pelosi, Ralph Nader, and Barbara Boxer tank, tank, TANK!

Living well really is the best revenge. You go, Sarah!

Posted by: V the K at November 14, 2009 1:19 PM


Andy, I hope you were laughing as you wrote that, whether because you were joking or because you're batshit crazy. (I'd go with the latter) Sarah Palin may not be quite ready, but she is orders of magnitude more qualified and experienced than the post turtle that's actually in office right now, and it would take a whole truckload of koolaid to blind anyone in their right mind to that. If there was a choice between the two alone, I'd go with her, no hesitation.

Posted by: Evil Otto at November 14, 2009 1:45 PM



Liberals' double-standard sexism is appalling; she's "dumb" because she's a happy and attractive Christian, who enjoys being a mother?

Real feminists need to be angry, wear combat boots, no make-up, short hair, and live alone in a studio apartment in the East Village? She's not the right kind of example because she doesn't support affirmative action... but instead went out there and just kicked butt?

The fact that Sarah's been so highly successful in life -while ignoring the group-therapy, confrontational victimhood of the left-wing feminist movement- explains the extra dose of venom in these attacks... her achievement turns their whole world on it's head, and she does it with a smile.

And IMO- she can pretty go anywhere she wants to politically, she's a natural... it's her call. Palin would be a natural antidote for Obamamania's trail of wreckage- the Gipper in Heels... believe that

Go get 'em Cuda

Evilwrench, while we obviously think differently and regardless of our opinions of Obama, Palin had nowhere near the experience or credentials that Obama had. Obama way exceeded Palin academically and had years of state and federal Senate experience. Palin had a 1 term Mayor role of a town slightly bigger than that of Mayberry N.C. on the Andy Griffin Show and less than 2 years as a Governor, which she hung out to dry. Nothing personal, just facts.

Evil, most people voted for Obama so that kinda discredits whatever it was that you were grasping at.

Posted by: andy42302 at November 14, 2009 2:07 PM


Evilwrench, while we obviously think differently and regardless of our opinions of Obama, Palin had nowhere near the experience or credentials that Obama had.

This of course is an absurd assertion.

Obama's experience credentials are a joke amongst thinking people, as is evidenced by the 144 actual work days as a junior senator that constitute his experience.

Palin may have been mayor of a "small town" as progressives like to say in a failed attempt diminish her experience, but even mayor of a small town is vastly more impressive than the silliness of experience as a "community organizer."

Exceeding Academically? But by whose standards? Certainly he exceeds in the kind of nonsense moonbat philosophy they indoctrinate students with at those kinds of schools, but in reality that's equivalent to not having any academic credentials at all.

Obama's lack of experience is painfully obvious, in every naive decision of foolishness, from his failures with Iran, to his failures with Russia and the Missile Defense System, to even the progressive's beloved France sending mockery Obama's way. The boy is clearly in over his head, and this can easily be seen daily in his regular fumbling through on the job training, at least for those not still wearing rose colored glasses.

In the immortal words of Jesse Jackson, "The only thing Obama has ever run is his mouth."

The kid's a great speech giver, but that's about it.

Evil, most people voted for Obama so that kinda discredits whatever it was that you were grasping at.

This is the kind of progressive distortion of reality I often talk about. 52% of America voted Obama in. See? An actual number as opposed to incorrect rhetoric.

The fact of the matter is, Obama was voted into office by the good will of Independents. Additionally, he appealed to the nonsensical white guilt that many folks thought they would be absolved of by voting for a black man with a name like a terrorist.

Posted by: J at November 14, 2009 2:26 PM


. Obama way exceeded Palin academically and had years of state and federal Senate experience.

Fact Check:

Obama had only been in the Senate for 143 days before deciding to run for president. (Days, not years of experience).

Obama has never released his college records or transcripts, so we have no idea what his academic performance really was. Obama has never run a business, never met a payroll, and has barely worked in the private sector at all.

Palin confronted corruption in her own Republican Party, and had a successful record as a reformer prior to be being picked as a VP candidate. Obama did nothing to clean up the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine, but used it not only to his benefit, but to the financial benefit of those around him (his wife, Tony Rezko, Valerie Jarrett).

Sarah Palin went to 6 colleges in 5 years - and no not b/c her father was a military man. The colleges she went to are third tier at best. Obama was on the Harvard Law Review - which you have to grade on - and the grading is anonymous.

Please do not compare Sarah Palin to Obama - Obama is in a much higher league in terms of intellect. If the right wing wants to regain power - stop your love affair with stupid.

Posted by: Lee at November 14, 2009 2:45 PM


It is becoming clearer by the day that Obama did not have the background experience to be President. Just because a majority voted him in as America's Idol is proof of nothing other than the American electorate is about as discerning as an infant enthralled by a set of jingling shining car keys.

Posted by: IOpian at November 14, 2009 2:52 PM


This is the kind of progressive distortion of reality I often talk about. 52% of America voted Obama in. See? An actual number as opposed to incorrect rhetoric.

And really, let's face it - a great many people in the country aren't interested in politics like we are and voted for this guy because they thought it would be making history to vote for the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. And that is what actually got him into office: the novelty vote and the black vote.

But now that the Democrats have used up the novelty vote for Presidential races (there will never be another "first black president"), and their choice, Obama, has proven himself so unworthy of the position, the Democrats are going to have a very tough go of it for a quite a while.

Evil, most people voted for Obama so that kinda discredits whatever it was that you were grasping at.

??? Ooh-kay. Let me explain it to you, Kool-Aid Man. I'll use small words, since you're either an idiot or are intentionally missing the point. I'm not a Palin booster myself... I don't think she was qualified to be president. Luckily, she wasn't running for president. She was running for VICE-President, an almost meaningless job which one of FDR's vice-presidents described as "not worth a bucket of warm piss." It can be useful as training for the presidency, in some cases. So had McCain won, Palin might have emerged in 4 or 8 years ready for the job. Or not.

Barack Obama was utterly unqualified to be president. He is incompetent, ignorant, and utterly inexperienced. You claimed that Palin had these qualities, yet you are cultishly devoted to a man who embodies them. Obama was a junior senator with less than one term under his belt, no foreign policy experience, no history of legislative accomplishment, and no history with either the military or the free market. Yet you voted for him, and you spend your time here defending him mindlessly. In other words, Andy, you voted for Sarah Palin, just a liberal version of her. Of course, you put that incompetent, ignorant, and inexperienced man into the White House, not the VP position. So you coming here and attacking her just shows the depth of your cognitive dissonance.

Oh, and the fact that 50%+1, 12.3%, or 99% of people vote for someone does not mean that person is competent or intelligent. It merely means that people voted for him.

Now, as for Palin, I don't want to see her run again. I would like to see her as the RNC head. She speaks her mind, fires up the conservatives, and most importantly she pisses you leftist freaks off.

Posted by: Evil Otto at November 14, 2009 3:04 PM


McCain's choice of Palin was criminally negligent and he saddened me greatly because of his previous integrity. She is incompetent on all fronts and would have been and is a disaster. I hope she runs again, although for her sake, you would think she would realize she is an idiot and milk the conservatives for all they are worth as a celebrity/personality and skip the politics. I loved that her guy in NY lost. Classic.

Posted by: Andrew at November 14, 2009 3:07 PM


Obama is in a much higher league in terms of intellect.

Really? Are you going by his record of legislation? Or perhaps his college writings? Or his ghost-written books? What evidence exactly are you basing your claim for Barack Obama's towering intellect on?

While he was on the Harvard Law Review he wrote almost nothing. While he was a legislator he passed almost nothing. In his less-than-single term in the Senate he accomplished nothing. As president, all he has done is spend at a rate that makes George W. Bush look like Ebeneezer Scrooge.

He's probably reasonably intelligent, but he seems to have a very short attention span and no particular drive aside from holding office. He's our first slacker president.

Posted by: Evil Otto at November 14, 2009 3:13 PM


The left's actions belie their words. "Sarah Palin is an imbecile, she's no threat to us at all... but let's assign 11 writers to go through her books with a fine-toothed comb to see if there's anything we can hang her with."

Obama himself is an intellectual mediocrity. The cultists may slather over him like middle-school girls licking the latest Jonas Bros poster from Tiger Beat. But an honest assessment of him is that he's not particularly innovative in his thinking; there's not a single policy he has forwarded that is anything other than a rehash of the left-liberalism that's dominated the left-wing of the Democrat Party since the 1970's. The cultists agree with these policies. Fine. But imputing all kinds of wisdom and accomplishment on him is pure fan-boy stuff.

It is a bit disingenuous of the left to applaud the election of the first American of African descent that represents about 15% of our population but they abhor the idea of electing the first female president that would represent an achievement of someone that represents about 52% of our population. While the freed slave had the right to vote since 1870, women did not get that right until 1920. So it shows they couldn't care less about social justice if it doesn't advance their political agenda. What scares them most is it might be the Right that elects the first female president and exposes their lack of core values and infantile agenda.

QUOTE
"Barack Obama has not released transcripts for his grades from Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law. He has also not released his SAT and LSAT scores. No explanation has been offered for not releasing them.

Obama must have had very average grades in high school since he only ended up at the moderately competitive Occidental College. With affirmative action, even an average set of grades would have gotten him into a more competitive undergraduate institution. In fact, for unknown reasons he did not apply as a graduate of the school he attended in Hawaii, but as a foreign transfer student from Indonesia. One possible reason for hiding his record in Hawaii is that he admits cutting class and doing drugs for most of his time in high school. It's also hard to gauge his academic turnaround since no one at Columbia University seems to have known him and both Obama and Columbia refuse to release his transcripts, compared with say, George Bush, whose undergraduate transcript you can see here. http://www.americanpolitics.com/bushtranscript.html.

Per the Wall Street Journal September 11, 2008, "Obama's Lost Years," Obama graduated from Columbia University (to which he transferred after his first two years at Occidental College in California), with a degree in Political Science without honors, so had a GPA less than a 3.3. His roomate Sohale Siddiqi indicated Obama intially felt alienated, felt "very lost," and used drugs to get high, which could have led to low grades initially. The roommate indicates that he then turned serious and "stopped getting high." Obama transferred to Columbia because he was concerned with urban issues. Based on his overall undergraduate GPA of less than a 3.3, Mr. Obama's admission to Harvard Law School may reflect affirmative action statutes, low grades early, then higher grades later (purely speculation) and/or other factors.

At Harvard Law School, Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude, which, according to the Harvard Law School website, is awarded to the top 10% of Harvard Law School students. Once again, without a transcript indicating which classes and professors he chose it is hard to judge the significance of a high class standing. Harvard, like most Ivy League schools has classes specially designed to allow various segments of the population to excel.

Also at Harvard Law School, Obama was accepted as one of 85-90 Editors of the Harvard Law Review. However, because of changes in the Law Review's policies a few years earlier to insure proper "diversity" among the law review staff, half were not chosen on the basis of grades. Obama was elected President of the Law Review, as a compromise candidate among 21 others running, and which according to a Harvard Law spokesperson is not based at all on academics, but on other measures as would occur in any club."

One would think someone that needed attention is changing their nickname to disrupt the conversation? Can anyone think of anyone needing more attention that these cockholsters? Case closed.

Andy, thanks for twice mentioning John Steward; His program runs on a channel called Comedy Central. Where do you get the rest of your political commentary, the Marmaduke strip in the funny pages?

Obama is in a much higher league in terms of intellect.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry when people boast about Obama's intellect.

He can _read_ from a teleprompter. Most 3rd graders can do that too. Should we elect them to office as well?

Before anyone holds up Obama's tenure on the Harvard Law Review as proof of his brilliance, here is part of the requirements for selection from the Harvard Law Review's own website:

Fourteen editors (two from each 1L section) are selected based on a combination of their first-year grades and their competition scores. Twenty editors are selected based solely on their competition scores. The remaining editors are selected on a discretionary basis. Some of these discretionary slots may be used to implement the Review's affirmative action policy.

Obama never published anything while president or member of the Harvard Law Review, and there is no evidence that he competed in the writing competition as a 1L student alluded to above.

Harvard Law announced last year that it is abolishing grades in favor of pass/fail, just like Yale and other Ivies. Look at this:

Though the problem of grade inflation has been a perennial one for Harvard, it dominated the Faculty’s agenda this year, resulting in unprecedented changes that many hope will buttress the integrity of Harvard’s name.
The effort to curb grade inflation gained sweeping momentum this past November, a month after a feature in the Boston Globe called Harvard’s grading practices “the laughing stock of the Ivy League.”

The name Harvard evokes ideas of brilliance, but Harvard too has been dumbed down. So, before anyone uses the word Harvard to tell us how brilliant Obama is, why, everyone at Harvard is brilliant and therefore no one at Harvard is brilliant.

I had a Yale Law School grad working for me once and she was a dolt. When her first trial came up, she told me "Don't worry, I've had acting classes". I told her, "Well, then act like you know what you're doing." Her opening statement: "We lawyers like the law, but it is boring to everyone else. You will be bored during this trial." And this was the first trial in our district on a meth lab! I had to leave the courtroom because I do not have a poker face. So, do not tell me how brilliant these Ivy league graduates are. Besides, I graduated from William and Mary law. I AM brilliant. Just ask me.

Dave, your assumption that chairman soetoro's oprichniki's long winded rant constitutes a "smackdown" is about as ludicrous as those here trying to pretend that Palin is educationally equivalent to Obama. It's all based on your say so alone simply because that's what you'd like it to be.

TricleUpPolitics, while you may have encountered a not so bright Harvard student, that doesn't speak for those students in general, albeit that GWB's performance both at Harvard and afterwards would well support your argument. Speaking of, note that there's a huge difference in a daddy bought Alma Mater ticket than there is for a poor and single family black kid that actually worked his way through school and earned it. What was Palin's accomplishments again?

xantl, the fact that Comedy Central exposed yet another FOX News "accidental" cropping videos has nothing to do with where I acquire my information. The fact is that FOX did it, they admitted it, and it isn't the 1st time, regardless of who first proves it. By the way, how does data accidentally jump from one DVD disc or hard drive to another?

VK, the New York Times actually points out a dozen discrepancies but hell, I'll give you the measly 6 that you insist on and even count 1 as irrelevant. How many are ok? It's like saying that while driving back and forth to work last month, I only had 5 wrecks. Hell I guess GWB only sold us 1 unneeded war and only wrecked 1 economy so maybe he wasn't that bad? Oh, and those off topic homosexual "Andy's boyfriend" innuendos are well expected of the common kibitzers here. Those childish last grasps of trying to salvage a lost argument is usually not your style, or at least not the style of the VK personality that you portray. Maybe you should go back to your "Andy's talking points have been debunked" (although there's no such evidence) as simple dishonesty fits you better than childish tantrums.

So, Andy looks down on middle-class women who dare to better themselves through college education and then have the audacity to participate in the political process... which obviously only Ivy leaguers should be permitted to do.

What a fuckin' snob-douchebag.

Anonymous, I have no clue how you deduce such an asinine assumption but it's consistent with the distracting nature of this blog. When you lose an argument pathetically, just conger up some stupid accusation to overshadow your shortcomings. It was the McCain team that voted to suppress women's wages. It is your party that wants to "put women in their place" not only at home but on the Congress House floor as well. It is your party that voted pro-rape of military contractor female employees. Not me.

So andy, being too sensitive, or in denial, that he's been smacked down, continues to insist that he's right, that the ridicule is mere childishness and the last grasp at a lost argument, then takes off on unrelated tangents, like Hannity's acknowledged error (vs the voluminous blatant unacknowledged lies of the lsm) and some nonsense about suppressing wages. What does all that have to do with Sarah Palin's book again?

It's interesting that Dave and/or Evil both claim on this thread that they oppose name hijacking yet the administrators seem to freely condone it.

Posted by: andy42302 at November 15, 2009 12:55 PM


Mr Evilwrench, your playbook has been repeatedly exposed. This "smackdown" is only on your say so as there's nothing in this thread that proves that to be true. Nothing. Point to 1 single example in this thread. That's a challenge. You can't do it. Unless you do so, I win and you lose.

Posted by: andy42302 at November 15, 2009 1:08 PM


Hello? Still waiting on that Preparation-H! My hems are screaming!

Just like I was last night when Ghost of Wellstone was - well, a lady never kisses and tells...

Posted by: andy42302 at November 15, 2009 1:14 PM


:) The smackdown speaks for itself, albeit in a facetious tone. You either can't or just don't want to comprehend how silly you've been made to look, and you keep ranting how you've "won". Declaring yourself the victor and running away is an old chatroom meme, now all you need to do is run away.

I find the name jacking annoying and infantile.

Posted by: Dave at November 15, 2009 3:04 PM


Thanks Dave, you and I are on the same page when it comes to dogs. Like I said though, I find it odd they only left 6lb bag of food for a 60lb+ dog in a week. Oh well.

Andy, you and I could debate Otto and Dave hours, it is good to a few who recognize the "namejacking" the same way we do. You and I namejacked on threads we were not even on. It's "infantile" as Dave says.

Posted by: Ghsot of Wellstone (the real one) at November 15, 2009 3:51 PM


Hey ghost you might as well keep the dog. Sounds like the former owners are cruel ass holes with no heart or compassion. It's sad that there are people like this in the world.

What kind of dog?

Bammy be all disadvantaged, and poor? In your liberal wet dreams. What was all this "work" that "poor, urban, disadvanted" Hussein did? Disregarding anything that Billy Ayer's might have fluffed, what is "hard working" Barry's actual work history? He did a LOT of drugs, at high school and at college. Where'd that drug habit $$$$ come from? You know damn well where. There are 3 usual sources-

1) Leeching off family money.
2) Assorted felony crimes (mugging, burglary, robbery etc)

And most often, commonly in conjunction with #1, #2 or both-

3) Dealing.

So either Bammy had enough sweet green, to suck from the family, to support his radical druggie lifestyle, or he was a dealer (at the least). His family was not poor. The grandparents were not without resources, and his Grandmother held a significant office with a well established Bank. Fun-time Barry don't need no stinkin' job. Lolo Soetoro represented "Big Oil". Then there was Brezinski, at college, Soros etc and "foundation" money to serve Barry's need to get high, as well as for advancement. Bammy either had a wealthy family, to bleed, got his stash paid for in "special" hand outs, or he dealt/robbed etc. Possibly all of the above. It appears that Hussein was just another red diaper, trust fund, affirmative action baby. Standard layabout, druggie radical. Of course, Hussein could clear this up by releasing his records.

Dave, a Bernese Mountain Dog. Tall for my house which has had 4 Bassets over 16 years, yet color coordinated lol. If they show up, I have to give her back, but at this rate, I think you may be correct on the lack of compassion.

Chairman, that is a stretch to now place Obama on par with street thugs. He was pretty open about any drug use, unlike the last guy. Discussing Obama or Bush's drug use is petty to say the least. You also try to make like pot was as expensive then as it is now. You are fooling yourself. If you look to cities like my own, or even Dave's you would recognize that drug addiction is a full time job for these half-wits.

I also can't help but notice all of the arguments in favor of Sarah Palin revolve around "she's not running for anything", although, unless I missed it, I don't know that George Soros and Bill Ayers are running for anything?

"By the way, how does data accidentally jump from one DVD disc or hard drive to another?"

Your knowledge of technology is laughable at best especially if you think TV stations air footage from DVD's or a single hard drive - not to mention how they are edited. Stick to talking about how to join AOL Chat and how to convert your 8 tracks to cassette tape grandpa.

You are right about the drug addiction being a full time time job for these half-wits. I see that bullshit all the time. It's sad but it's true and a very big problem for the community around Memfrica.

Soros and Ayers are different,Ghost. These clowns are known for Marxist ideals (Soros) and domestic terrorism (Ayers). The problem here is that they are close associates of Obama and they are an influence. I wouldn't be surprised if they were helping to call the shots.

chairman,

Pot in Memfrica is as cheap as a head of lettuce and the price of cocaine is also cheap. The big problem around here is Meth. This drug is one bad monster and will destroy a person in a matter of weeks. It's all over the place here plus I hear about Meth labs being busted on a daily basis.

Posted by: Dave at November 15, 2009 5:01 PM


The issue being, we are all well aware both Obama and Bush were drug users. To what degree, we will never know. Yet, to assume Obama was some street thug is a stretch. Hypothetically, if he was, more power to him. Maybe it will encourage some of what Dave and I witness not too far from own homes to get off their asses. As for Palin, I personally see her as one that demonstrates a "good game" on how to look good. Again, we can only speculate. Both Obama and Palin deserve applause for their accomplishments, yet he reads as more of an open book than she.

As far as "Soros and Ayers are different". Of course they are, they are private citizens who never ran for anything. One has a shady past, the other alot of money. Yet, the right is obsessed with them, far worse than Palin is to the left. So, Obama has close ties to Ayers?? Not true. I know a drug dealer who had a chance to play for the Kansas City Royals. Does that mean I give a shit about baseball or drugs?? C'mon, guys you are smarter than that.

I find all the elitist attacks on Sarah Palin disturbing. What is there about a middle class woman with home town values that causes "pseudo-populists" to froth at the mouth? You'd think we were living under a caste system to hear them go on and on about how "inferior" Palin is.

And don't get me wrong, I want to see Palin put in her time and get up to speed on the issues before she takes the plunge into national politics, but acting like she's dumber than Joseph Biden is just plain BS.

NY and California from the mid 70's to mid 80's was a different time, a different place. Pot, smack and coke ruled, and was not cheap enough to use without "offsetting" cost, in some manner. Unless you didn't have to worry about $$$, at all. What was Barry Soetoro actually doing while at "college"? He sure doesn't appear to have done much besides making sure his name was marked as "present" (there's a recurring theme), for a bare minimum to graduate. And did he actually manage that? How much ass-covering was provided for him? It is not unheard of in some instances, at least, of affirmative action type college cases, where the "student" cannot possibly fail, no matter how little work they do, or how seldom they sign in. Assignments are produced and rolls filled, for them. They get a bare pass. The communist groups that Ayers and co, were closely allied to the Black Power group/s, and were running some interesting "activities".
