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.

Shooting the messenger

In doing some research this morning for my LA Times piece, I saw some more fake outrage aimed at making sure that the media and the bloggers are cowed from criticizing Sarah Palin, which of course would free her to be the candidate, instead of John McCain, who unfortunately has…

Like A Silk Purse From A Sow’s Ear

It’s pretty obvious that Sarah Palin loves earmarks like… Like… Fuck, I think any good metaphor is technically sexist by McCain standards. She loves them like a gender-neutral and completely equal individual loves a non-gendered object which would be a common and comically fervent object of desire for said individual?…

ABC report on Palin’s inquiry into book banning at Wasilla library

Brian Ross of ABC has been digging into some of the myriad scandals swirling around Sarah Palin. In this report, he addresses Palin’s inquiry into removing books from the Wasilla town library, and her interactions with the librarian. The transcript of the ABC report is below the fold. Contrary to…
