So the latest news is that Bristol Palin's shotgun wedding will happen right before the election.

Newsflash for the McCain campaign: This wedding ain't exactly Lady Di and the Prince of Wales caliber. If you genuinely think this would be "fantastic" for the campaign, you are not only using a knocked-up 17-year-old for your own gain but you're just...really, really stupid.

The fabulous John Cole over at Balloon Juice sums up Sarah Palin in the only way that fits:

Sarah Palin is the distilled essence of wingnut. She has it all. She is dishonest. She is a religious nut. She is incurious. She is anti-science. She is inexperienced. She abuses her authority. She hides behind executive privilege. She is a big spender. She works from the gut and places a greater value on instinct than knowledge.

And most dangerous of all, she is supremely self-confident to the point of not recognizing how ill-equipped she is to lead the country.


The only thing I'd change about the above comment is the word "dishonest." It's just too elegant. I prefer "liar." It's a nasty little word that suits her perfectly.

Someone asked me if I'm going to watch her on 20/20 tonight. No I am not. Between her vicious performance at the Republican convention and her blathering Charlie Gibson interview last night, I've seen all I need to of this awful woman. She needs to be shipped back to Alaska without delay. This grinning fruitcake so little deserves to be in the White House that there should be a restraining order keeping her from even standing outside it.

I'm Done.

As far as I'm concerned John McCain has won this election.

I was away last week but I caught some of the Republican convention and it left my jaw on the floor. Nothing but petty, sneering, mocking attacks on Barack Obama, the kind of vicious, infantile shit that belongs on Fandom Wank, not on the national political stage and not when the future of the country is at stake.

Meanwhile...the Democrats can't say a word about McCain without a lengthy, fawning preface about all his sacrifice, service and integrity.

The McCain campaign is working round the clock to obstruct justice and shut down an ongoing corruption investigation into Sarah Palin, even as they hide her from the press so they can have time to turn an ignorant, unqualified extremist into something that can weather a debate and a few softball interviews.

Meanwhile...more than half the country (according to recent polls) has fallen head-over-heels for this adorable "pit bull in lipstick" and isn't it funny how Hillary Clinton was pilloried as a shrill bitch but Palin is lauded as a delightfully refreshing "barracuda?"

McCain tells people to "stand up and fight" while ignoring the fact that the reason we need to fight is because his party has been in power for eight years.

Meanwhile...this shameless liar is trailing Obama by only a few points.

People, look at what's going on. The Republicans are twisting this election, focusing on the politics of personality while diverting and avoiding any real discussion of issues BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES and you know what? The press and the people of America and the Democrats are helping them do it.

I don't want to talk about this shit anymore. I've already had one conservative concern troll over here chastising me for my "vitriol" towards McCain, the same "can't we all play nice" hankie-wringing bullshit I saw so much of four years ago. I'm done. I want to talk about Dean Winchester. I want to talk about Supernatural. I want to finish my fanfic. And there are plenty of better places than here for information and I urge you, I BEG you to take advantage of them:

Crooks and Liars: One stop shopping for all your reality-based news.

Balloon Juice: No holds barred, take no prisoners blogging from a Republican in recovery.

Digby's Hullabaloo: Always dead on the money analysis, especially of our useless press corps.

Glenn Greenwald: This guy tells it like it is until it hurts.

Stay informed. Question everything. Make sure you're registered to vote. Pray for a miracle.

Hurricane Gustav is bearing down on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast just in time for the Republican convention and so the Republicans are planning to turn it into a public relations stunt.

For God's sake, America. Don't fall for this.

Here, watch this, at least it's funny:


What?

McCain on his Vice-President pick:

"The Presidency of the United States of America is the toughest job on the planet,” Sen. McCain said. “And my friends, the best testing ground for that job is being the mayor of a 5,000-person town in Alaska.”

Is this for real? Are we being punked? Did we suddenly sideslip into an alternate universe?

Fox News immediately dug up some "lifelong Democrat" woman who'd suddenly decided to switch her vote to McCain because he had a woman on the ticket. Is THAT for real? Yeah, I'm gonna go out and vote for this out-of-it country club jackass and his anti-choice, pro-creationism, card-carrying member of the NRA running mate because there's someone with ovaries on the ticket. Jesus H. CHRIST.
