Haley Barbour: Palin is ‘normal,’ unlike other female politicians

This sexist whopper out of good-old-boy Mississippi Governor (and McCain pal) Haley Barbour’s mouth is breathtaking: “My wife loves her because…she doesn’t have a chip on her shoulder like some women politicians, she is very ‘normal’ — she doesn’t have to tell you how smart she is. But she is…

Questions about Sarah Palin’s faith that deserve to be answered

Attention right wing: if you want to dip back into the tired Rev. Wright brouhaha in your desperation to avoid discussing the economy, please go ahead; that will make it A-OK to move this Palin matter into the spotlight. Please watch this entire video. It’s about 10 minutes long, and…

Two ads hit hard on McCain/Palin

First up — Nurses union goes after McCain’s health – ‘One Heartbeat Away.’ You can’t say this McCain flatliner ad by the 85,000-member National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association doesn’t go right to the point: The nation’s largest union of registered nurses this morning unveiled a striking new television ad…

But Why?

Sarah Palin: so popular that her time’s better spent not doing events in front of people. The problem with Palin is that her entire presence on the national stage has been explained to us the same way you’d explain the concept of a bus to a three year old. Why…

It’s time for today’s McCain/Palin Political Theatre

Imposter, not syndrome

Oh good lord. I just learned from reading Rebecca Traister that Judith Warner has a pitiful article up about poor Sarah Palin, who suffers from Imposter Syndrome. Warner admits that she just heard about this syndrome the other day—which is very real, if not a diagnosable condition—which somewhat explains why…

Not even Brown v. the Board of Education?

Sarah Palin, when challenged to name a SCOTUS decision besides Roe v. Wade, couldn’t come up with one. Unsurprisingly, the McCain campaign is holding CBS responsible for daring to think that might be something a major presidential nominee ought to know, and isn’t holding Palin responsible for, you know, not…

Banned Books Week: A glimpse into the wingnut mind

Thanks to Cynthia Samuels for reminding me that it’s Banned Books Week. It’s a noteworthy year for this issue, because we’ve got a book banning supporter running for Vice President. It’s interesting, because the whole incident—Palin fired a librarian because she wouldn’t take certain books off the shelf, but the…

Scrubbing Bubbles scrub problems right down the drain

Two thoughts came to me when I saw this headline on Google News: 1) BEGIN? 2) Hey, where’d the story go? Memory Hole rescue after the jump. Hey Fox News, it’s the internet! A growing number of Republicans are expressing concern about Sarah Palin’s uneven – and sometimes downright awkward…

Insider to Ed Schultz: Palin is clueless; NRO columnist calls for her to bow out

Progressive radio show host Ed Schultz has spoken to folks inside the McCain campaign, and there’s a serious meltdown over Palin: McCain Camp insiders say Palin “clueless” Capitol Hill sources are telling me that senior McCain people are more than concerned about Palin. The campaign has held a mock debate…
