"Republicans - The party of Lincoln. Romney couldn’t get a black guy to vote for him if he gave him a Lincoln."

"Even if conceiving her was a mistake, aren’t you morally obliged to bring her to full-term?" - in reference to Sarah Palin

The following, appeared in the Washington Post last week:

Though it is embarrassing to admit this in public, I can no longer hide the truth. I have a Sarah Palin problem.

I have written about her in 42 columns since Sen. John McCain picked her as his vice-presidential running mate in 2008. I’ve mentioned her in dozens more blog posts, Web chats, and TV and radio appearances. I feel powerless to control my obsession, even though it cheapens and demeans me.

But today is the first day of the rest of my life. And so, I hereby pledge that, beginning on Feb. 1, 2011, I will not mention Sarah Palin — in print, online or on television — for one month. Furthermore, I call on others in the news media to join me in this pledge of a Palin-free February. With enough support, I believe we may even be able to extend the moratorium beyond one month, but we are up against a powerful compulsion, and we must take this struggle day by day.

I checked, and I have written 39 posts about Wicked Witch of Wasilla, since that fateful morning of August 29, 2008, a day we wish we could all forget. So today, I declare…Read more

"The Second Amendment is a vestigial relic of frontier farmers three centuries ago. It’s about as relevant as chamber pots and the bleeding cure. It’s really not necessary to talk about the Second Amendment in the 21st century. What we really need is education. What we need is leadership. We need people who are in prominent positions to say “Guns aren’t necessary. They’re not needed. They’re not part of everyday life in the 21st century, and they are to be condemned, not to be argued for, as (gun rights advocates) constantly do.” And we’ll get farther that way than we will fighting another legislative battle.” David Stockman (R) - Former Budget Director under Ronald Reagan

"Mika, you need to buck up! Now I know you think that this story has no purpose other than keeping Sarah Palin’s name in the headlines for another news cycle. I know you think that she has nothing to offer the national dialogue, and that her speeches are just coded talking points mixed in with words picked up at random from a thesaurus. I know you think Sarah Palin is at best a self-promoting ignoramus, and at worst, a shameless media troll who’ll abuse any platform to deliver dog-whistle encouragement to a far right base that may include possible insurrectionists. I know you think that her reality show was pathetically unstatesmanlike, and at the same time, i know you believe it also represents the pinnacle of her potential. That her transparent desperation to be a celebrity so completely eclipsed her interest in public service so long ago, that there would be more journalistic integrity in reporting on one of the lesser Kardashian’s ass implants. Now I know, I know when you arrive at the office each day you say a silent prayer that maybe, just maybe, Sarah Palin will at long last shut up for ten fucking minutes. I know, I can see it in your eyes."

“Folks, the forgotten victim (of the Tucson shootings) is Sarah Palin.  Just because last March, she put out a map of what looked like gunsight crosshairs over 20 Congressional districts, including (Gabrielle) Giffords’s.  But graphics are not calls to action.  If they were, I’d stop when I saw [a Stop sign].  It’s just a metaphor.”

In case anyone had forgotten Sarah Palin’s turkey pardoning/grinding incident! Happy Thanksgiving @sarahpalinusa and other teabaggers.

The Witch from Wasilla was none too pleased to be sharing the screen with the original and far more qualified version of herself, Geraldine Ferraro. No tsunami tonight Sarah…go teabag yourself!

I am no political theorist. But here is a concept that seems obvious to me. If you populate government with ignorant people, or with people who avowedly disrespect government, or with people whose background and experience and public integrity in no way merit political office, sooner or later you will have worse governance. The same is true if you elect leaders following political campaigns that overflow with hysteria. Four billion dollars spent to scare voters. Four billion spent to preserve the lobbyists’ hold on Washington. Garbage in, garbage out. “Everything is amplified,” Jon Stewart said Saturday at his “Restore Sanity” rally, “so nothing gets heard.


In the interest of fairness, we’re posting Palin’s response to JMart’s piece this morning on the former governor wreaking havoc on the campaign trail

My buddy Levi Johnston was on The View recently talking about his run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska and surprisingly held his own against the cackling bitch hens.  Meanwhile his baby mama continues to pimp herself a few blocks from here on Dancing With The “Stars”; her outfits getting skimpier each week.  Great job advocating celibacy you dumb hick!  And what of Mama Moose Killer Sarah Palin, the Wicked Witch of Wasilla?  Well, as Vanity Fair recently pointed out, the promo for her new reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”, has all the linear narratives of another great political scholar, Napoleon Dynamite.  See for yourself:

"While its cinematography resembles that of something like Into the Wild, the dialogue seems to take its cues from Napoleon Dynamite, of all things. See if you can tell the difference between Napoleon Dynamite quotes and the Sarah Palin’s Alaska script.”

A. “Oh gosh!”
B. “We are somewhere that people dream about!”
C. “I spent [summer] with my uncle in Alaska hunting wolverines!”
D. “Family comes first, it’s just gotta be that way.”
E. “No boys upstairs.”
F. “Flippin’ sweet!”
G. “This is flippin’ fun!”
H. “Are you guys having a killer time?”
I. “How come we can’t ever just be satisfied with tranquility?”
J. “[Wolves] kept tryin’ to attack my cousins. What the heck would you do in a situation like that?”
K. “I’d rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office. I’d rather be out here, bein’ free”
L. “Just tell them that their wildest dreams will come true if they vote for you.”
M. “Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!”

Speaking of the great Northwest, I was in Portland again last week visiting my old stomping grounds and having a great time with friends.  Here are some photos from the trip.  Thanks to Marcelo & Emily and Jay & Darlene for their hospitality.  Read more…

Wow, what a sunset! Sarah Palin must still be in town because it looked like Armageddon. It was raining with lightning in the Hollywood Hills (rare in LA), mostly clear over downtown, and burnt orange towards the beach. Every color of the rainbow, AND a double rainbow! I’ll post a video later to prove these aren’t Photoshopped!  More pics here: http://picasaweb.google.com/CareyAnthonyGLY/StormcloudsOverLosAngeles#

No wonder Los Angeles broke the all time heat record today at 113° (45° C)! Sarah Palin is sitting in an air conditioned ballroom just 2 miles from where I type this, getting ready to watch her evil spawn dance!! I feel sick! There is a hell. http://tinyurl.com/2a6tlxt
