Palin's gone ROGUE!

When I read the headline for this article on, I laughed so hard that I peed a little. In my head, I'm picturing Sarah Palin clad in camo and face paint, hiding with her husband Todd in the wilderness, out of contact with the McCain campaign. As if she's some trained operative that's broken free from her brainwashing and she's on the loose!

Reality is that everyone's a critic when your team is losing. McCain and Palin have one week to completely shift the tide of the election in their favor, and things are getting contentious. Instead of letting her $150,000 wardrobe drift away, Palin decided to bring it up again yesterday, which really only helps her detractors. I think it's one of the dumbest issues that's come up this year, but Palin seems more interested in self-preservation than in doing what is best for her ticket.

McCain's decision to pick Palin will be debated for a long time. I think the damage she did to his ticket has been overstated. His economic policies and statements that the fundamentals of the economy were strong have damaged him far more than his running mate ever could. Although one poll suggests that the Palin selection made McCain much less palatable to independent voters.

You know the scariest thing is that this bitch will not go away. There is a lot of talk of her running at the top of the ticket in 2012. Pundit's excuses to this point is that she hasn't gotten to run the campaign the way she wants to; you know, the one that made her a "maverick" in Alaska. Which I think is like being the last Schlitz in the fridge. Know one really wants you until given no other choice.

PALIN IN '09 (from VP to President!) AND 2012 "legit"

It's true that Sarah Palin does have the most executive experience
of all the candidates in this election. This experience includes
"spreading the wealth" (see: Alaska's Windfall Profits Tax),
"abuse of power" (see: Troopergate), "questionable expenditures"
(see: Family travel expenses, hair and wardrobe costs).

But let us not get caught up in the here and now.
Let us journey through the past darkly:

From Lil' Sarah Palin's 4th Grade portfolio:

As in "the democratically elected government of..."

As in The People's Republic of China
The People's Republic of Cuba

I hope to grow up to: Live in a FREE Alaska and marry Joe Vogel,
the leader of the Alaskan Independence Party.

If McCain/Palin win the White House, what good will it be?

If the nastiest, dirtiest, most erratic campaign mounted in the 21st Century
(and even though it's only a few years old, that is saying something),
can triumph over the most obvious leader to emerge in decades,
what hope does our nation have?

What direction would a McCain/Palin administration take us?
Do you think that they even know themselves?
Have you noticed that the color scheme of the McCain campaign
isn't even red, white and blue? It's blue, white and gold. Which USA is that?

All I hear from the McCain/Palin camp is "Barack this," and "Obama that."

What I hear from Obama is "We can do this," and "we can fix that."

I say, let's vote for hope, change and a continuation of Democracy.
4 more years of Reaganomics will turn us

Beijing, China
Unassociated Fictional Press

The Government of The Peoples Republic of China has unanimously
endorsed McCain/Palin for President of the United States.

"They are our kind of leaders!" says a Government spokesperson.
"They understand that business and the government should be in control,
not the silly workers, or 'people' as they sometimes call themselves.
Also, we understand the Republic concept. It is Democracy we find

A leading General, who wished to remain anonymous, had this to say
about President McCain: "We planted many post-hypnotic suggestions
in our former P.O.W.'s mind and we are beside ourselves with
anticipation at having the opportunity to trigger them and have control
of the white house without even having to wage a war..."

"And if that fails," a second anonymous official pipes in "it's not like
George W. Bush did not already sell it to us anyway."

P.S. We sure hope that Sarah Palin and her corrupt comrade Ted Stevens dream of
a free Alaska comes true someday so we can do serious business.
