Too funny not to love the Republican Hypocrites

I really love the part where Karl Rove tells views that Tim Kane isn't qualified to be VP because he's only been the governor of Virginia for 3 years and was the mayor of the small town of Richmond, Virginia (pop-200,000)...

It only gets better from there...

The Daily Show is one of my favorites as they constantly have me laughing at the hypocrisy found in our political system and the candidates that want to lead us.

This show was particularly funny!

Politics does not appear to be about the facts, but rather which side you are on. Do these people know their own minds? Perhaps they should watch their clips before they speak. However, in the case of Rove, the truth is whatever he is speaking at the moment. Talk about living for the moment.

It's hard to believe, Steve, but I agree with you about Rove 100%. I am having a hard time absorbing this. I found a lot of agreement with your radio interview last week. I agreed fully with Twila about a post she had less than a week ago regarding the presidential race. I guess we all do have some common ground.

Of course, there is Chris, the Republican apologist...The only Republican Chris doesn't support is "The Stain"!

that is so funny.

Wait for next week. I'm sure you will find something to disagree with me about. I never commented on your comments about the radio interview, but as usual you were condescending and looked at the issues only through your eyes - you see and hear what you want Dale especially as it relates to me.

I'm a pretty fair person that looks at both sides of the issues but of course Dale you would disagree with me. I actually watched all the keynote speakers and a few more at both conventions. I have voted for and supported Republican, Democratic and Independent candidates for office. Issues and principles are more important to me than parties or candidates.

Frankly your agreement with me is not too important to me. I read a lot, talk to many, and listen to what others have to say (believe it or not that includes you Dale) whether I agree or not and I am more than willing to share the sources of information so others can form their own opinions. A democracy works better if everyone is informed and willing to listen before they condemn. Cheers

John McCain Proud to Stand Before Random California Middle School For Some Reason

Speaking of hypocrital, isn't it usually the Republicans that tell us of the great opportunities Americans have to be upwardly mobile? Well for some, it appears that if you actually accomplish this---and you're African-American, it makes you "uppity":

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (Republican):
"Honestly, I've never paid that much attention to Michelle Obama," Westmoreland said. "Just what little I've seen of her and Senator [Barack] Obama, is that they're a member of an elitist class...that thinks that they're uppity." (link)

And Republicans wonder why theyt don't have more support from the African-American community....

Pink Slip

And Democrats wonder why they don't have more support from the women community...

Seriously though, I found it ironic that someone in Reid's position making that comment got hardly any media coverage but Westmoreland's uppity comment did, and was first attributed to a smear against Barack by many of the blogs.

Obama stated he would fire anyone from his campaign that was responsible for spreading rumors about Palin, yet Howard Gutman has not been fired as far as anyone has yet reported.

Some of the liberal bloggers that I know who were so upset about the Obama smears and decried them, are now no different in their rush to smear Palin.

Politics equals hypocrisy where the only real problem comes in when people are naive enough to not realize that both sides are really not very different.

We don't remember days only moments...

"And Democrats wonder why they don't have more support from the women community"

Actually I believe women vote for Democrats more than Republicans, no? Seriously though, I do recall Campbell Brown taking umbrage with Reid's comments. Personally, I'm awaiting Hillary to supplant him as the Majority Leader.

But other than the rumor from Alaska about Bristol's daughter, what "smears" have been used against Palin?

Pink Slip

Her supposed affair that didn't happen

Claiming that she was really trig's grandmother

Claiming she was involved in the Alaskan Independence Party

Claiming she made cuts to funding for troubled teens & special ed (which the MSM never corrected when it was proven wrong)

Suggesting that a mother could not handle being VP

Claiming she demanded books to be banned that were not even written at the time it supposedly happened

There are over 60 of them out there, trotted out by parts of the media and the blogosphere.

We don't remember days only moments...

Her supposed affair that didn't happen

Who used this smear? I first heard about it from the McCain camp---no one else.

Claiming that she was really trig's grandmother

I mentioned this one.

Claiming she was involved in the Alaskan Independence Party

According to the AIP, she WAS involved. How is this a "smear"?

Claiming she demanded books to be banned that were not even written at the time it supposedly happened

Can you clarify this? I never read that she had specific books in mind. Only that she asked the librarian if she'd be ok with banning books. The librarian said "no", and Palin then tried to fire her. How is this inaccurate?

Suggesting that a mother could not handle being VP

I have a hard time accepting people's personal OPINIONS as "smears".

Wow - All that "research" on gay porn sites finally paid off Libs?

Larry Sinclair is wanted in Colorado, but you can catch him today at the National Press Club.

Sinclair is familiar to political junkies and reporters as the source of outlandish allegations about Senator Barack Obama, tales that began with sex and drugs and moved on to murder.

The Duluth, Minn., resident is the sort of figure who appears at the margins of every presidential campaign, and both Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton had their own obscure accusers with dramatic allegations. But as the old media ignores him, Sinclair has taken full advantage of the Internet, and a video in which he makes his claims that have been viewed more than 900,000 times on YouTube.

This afternoon, he's reserved the Holeman Lounge at downtown Washington's National Press Club to try to lend his story the legitimacy that comes with national media attention.

After all, this bogus Sara Palin "affair" story is now gospel according to Liberal Bloggers.

Therefore this gay affair that Obama had MUST be true.

I saw the Sara Palin "affair" on the internet. And Libs/Dems believe EVERYTHING they read on the internet. Right?

Like Bush planned 9/11?
Like 9/11 was an "inside job"?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

Wrong again... Very few if any of the main stream liberal blogs covered it. What did get covered was McCain/Palin freaking out over it and their threat to sue the National Enquirer...

Since you brought it up...


Since it was an Obama supporter that BROUGHT UP THIS AFFAIR CRAP on SwampBubbles, then I must assume that you retards are reading the National Enquirer for your "news", much the same way SensorG gets his "news" from Comedy Central.

I'll bet you get your thoughts on the 2nd Amendment from Dick Tracy comic books.

Your work ethic from SpongeBob Squarepants?

Your morality from Hello Kitty?

America and the rest of the world is LAUGHING AT YOUR POLITICIAL PARTY.

Now a question that I know Democrats have really researched and only a Libtard can answer.

When watching WWF, which light beer is the best choice when serving BBQ Pork Rinds?
Enquiring Libtarded minds want to know and the rest of the world wants to laugh at you some more.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

I'm with Pink on this one...

Her supposed affair that didn't happen
The National Inquirer reported this first (how'd that go for John Edwards)...there is a bunch of talk about McCain's numerous affairs out there too, is talking about them bashing McCain as a woman?

Claiming that she was really trig's grandmother
Ok- a blog got something wrong, not shocking news here. The accusation rattled the McCain team enough that they "outted" Palin's pregnant daughter. It was Bush's team that spread rumors in 2000 about McCain's "black baby" and "he was a Manchurian candidate". Or how about "Obama is gay", "Obama hates America", "Obama is a Muslim"...

This stuff is just politics at it's worse. Just because it is used against Palin, do you take it as an assault on a woman?

Claiming she was involved in the Alaskan Independence Party
The chair person of the organization listed her as such. They have year old footage of her being called a former member and she addressed the group's annual convention as governor. How does bring any of this up bash her as a woman?

Claiming she made cuts to funding for troubled teens & special ed
Technically true, just depends on how you look at it. The original budget had $5 million dollars for trouble teens. She reduced it $3.9 million. Both were a significant increase over the previous year, but in the end she cut potential funding. This isn't any different then the Pentagon asking for $500 billion for a new weapon system and the Democrats only giving them $400 billion and the Republicans bashing them for hating the troops. Once again, how does pointing this out bash Palin as a woman?

Suggesting that a mother could not handle being VP
I'll grant you that one...

Claiming she demanded books to be banned that were not even written at the time it supposedly happened
I've never seen the list, either way she tried ban books, that part hasn't been denied...Again, how does bring this up attacking her as a woman?

This person was completely unvetted...more and more may come out, some true, some untrue. That's just politics and whining "because I'm a girl" only demeans women in politics who have to put up with real shit. I remember watching Hillary Clinton rallies and watching the wing nuts show up their "back to the kitchen" signs and their Hillary nut crackers... now that shit was demeaning...

The media did not report the Edwards story for over a year, they did not even wait a day to cover the National Enquirer story, which was my point. Oct 10, 2007 to be exact and the MSM did not report it after the primary...

That's not the way the reductions were reported, now it's being backtracked though most of the media that reported it incorrectly has not issued a correction.

Book banning list? Here is the fake list of the books she supposedly tried to ban in 1996 - you can see some where not written then:

The bogus Sarah Palin Banned Books List:

This is the list of books Palin tried to have banned. As many of you will notice it is a hit parade for book burners.

What she did do is ask the Librarian how a book could be banned, the Librarian told her she did not support books being banned. No books were banned, though it appears she considered firing the Librarian which does not appear happened. The Librarian supported the other Mayoral candidate/former Mayor.

I don't disagree that trying to claim you are only a girl is wrong. That's not what has happened at least not from this woman's perspective. My Hillary sign is still in my front yard because one of my neighbors is one of those "back in the kitchen types". He's voting for Barr because he's digusted McCain picked a woman.

We don't remember days only moments...

Just curious, where did you happen upon the 'bogus' list of books Palin wanted banned and how do you know the list is 'bogus'?

Second, I'm confused about the Hillary sign reference. You really are a Hillary supporter or the sign's simply there to piss off your 'back-in-the-kitchen' neighbor?

Lisa, when did the MSM cover the National Enquirer story about the Palin affair? (and I'm not talking about them covering the McCain camp denial, but the story itself) I did not see anyone cover it.

Pink Slip

flow both on both sides. You have been good on showing us this.

I like the Daily Show because they point out hypocrisy regardless of party affiliation (and it is one funny show although a bit crude from time to time). Hypocrisy is not the province of one party or the other, but in my opinion the Republicans (on the national scene) are ahead on points at this juncture of the campaign season.


We don't remember days only moments...

your bias is showing. Are you one Hillary's bitter Pant suit brigade? One of the ones who couldn't make the switch to Obama? It's OK!

Go back and listen to Senator Clinton's speech! Be inspired like I was when I heard her speech. I didn't know that she had it in her. Consequently, I am more sympathetic to her then I was when she was being a not very nice person. I see her in a new light as do many more of my sisters.

Are you going to see Donna Brazile tomorrow night?

Did I miss something?
