Is It Okay If…Yeah. Yeah, It Is

A presumptuous candidate meets with foreign leaders, draws massive crowds and is running on a platform dedicated mainly to the force of their own personality and vague prescriptions that fall apart when the candidate is off-teleprompter. Of course, this is Sarah Palin, so she’s magically connecting with real people rather…

Details Of Biden/Palin Debate Set

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Negotiators from the campaigns of Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain agreed to format details in the October 2nd debate between Vice Presidential running mates Senator Joe Biden and Governor Sarah Palin, according to sources involved in the talks. At issue was the length and duration…

On impersonating politicians

The news that Amy Poehler is leaving SNL and starting a sitcom with the producers of “The Office” is the least tragic entertainment news ever. SNL can be very funny, but all too often it just suffers from the inescapable problem that it’s too hard for a team of writers…

First rate shaming

I have my quarrels with some of the assertions in this article, but I’ll put those aside because this paragraph is just awesome: Take a hard look at yourselves. Play back this year’s Republican convention and you’ll see an all-white crowd of people screaming for offshore oil drilling — fat…

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…
