Please help shut down this right wing lie

So I’m reading John Aravosis writing about the Sarah Palin rape kit controversy, which he suspects was rooted in her opposition to the right of a rape victim not to be impregnated by the rapist. That strikes me as reasonable—rape kits are mainly about collecting evidence, but also contain packets…

Rabbit food is lady food

Via Matt, this quote from Adam Serwer is priceless: If Obama does lose, count me among those who will count race as a major factor. The double standards in this race are absurd — imagine if one of Obama’s daughters had been pregnant, or consider that arugula, which is available…

White privilege, McCain/Palin — and the Kenyan witchhunter

Tim Wise‘s bio lets you know he’s in a unique position to lay this out on the line. He is the director of the Association for White Anti-Racist Education (AWARE) in Nashville, Tennessee. He lectures across the country about the need to combat institutional racism, gender bias, and the growing…

Palin praised racist writer who called for RFK’s assassination

Why does this not surprise me? Frank Rich in the NYT, commenting on Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech: Aligning herself with “a young farmer and a haberdasher from Missouri” who “followed an unlikely path to the vice presidency,” she read a quote from an unidentified writer who, she claimed, had praised…

One day some conservative will make a campaign claim in good faith…..maybe

Cathy Young argues today that the reason Sarah Palin makes feminists so upset is that she’s all successful and stuff, and we’re just jealous bitches. Yeah, that’s the ticket. It has nothing to do with seeing a woman who takes advantage of all the hard work of feminists before her…

YOU ARE SO AWESOME!

John McCain’s economic message is cribbed from Sarah Palin’s assistant. Perhaps moreso than the “you’re either for the workers or against them” ethos of the argument, I enjoy the idea that as long as we work hard and value the greater glory of the state, we shall never fail. That…

Culture warriors unite!

Gary Kamiya has a good article up at Salon about how McCain is reviving the culture war with Sarah Palin, and how frightfully enduring the culture war seems to be, able to revive dead Republicans that are besieged by ill-advised wars and economic ruin. And he’s right, it is frightening,…

Sarah Palin’s diversity in action as governor: cronies and classmates – and definitely no blacks

(UPDATE: I highly recommend reading Alaskan Amy Jones’s well-researched blog about this topic.) While there aren’t a lot of black people living in Alaska (4.46%), it would be interesting to know what Governor Sarah Palin thinks of her taxpaying black citizens and her approach to inclusion. Wait no longer. The…

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor

Either Sarah Palin is an outsider hockey mom with a day job just doing what an average woman does or she’s a foreign policy and energy savant with a deep understanding and experience of governance and world affairs. But she’s not both. Sarah Palin’s not an action figure – you…

Mooseburger Jesus

And lo did she descend from the snowy peak, carrying the slaughtered moose as offal… - Palin 3:29 Reading over the predictable outrage concerning Charlie Gibson’s insistence that Sarah Palin show she was doing something besides firing anyone who stood in her way over the past decade, I ran upon…
