The unreasonableness of anti-tax ideology

The Dust-Up between myself and Katherine Mangu-Ward is about Sarah Palin and feminism, so I didn’t really have the time and space to denounce Mangu-Ward’s scare tactics around taxes. Which is too bad, because she insinuates, in the piece, that it’s in her self-interest and the self-interest of a majority…

Manic Pixie Dream Governor

I’m watching a tape of a Sarah Palin speech right now, and realizing that the woman is the GOP’s Manic Pixie Dream Governor. Literally, her entire stump speech is just wacky shit she’s done that’s supposed to get the dispirited base thinking about what could be, a woman who brings…

I Think She’s A Muslim, Too

Sarah Palin believes that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taxpayer-funded. They weren’t. Of course, it’s the beauty of Republican communication – what she said still speaks to a truth, which is that bloobedy blah blah taxes. I’m tempted to write a whole long thing about how the general Republican…

Day 5 Of The Republican Convention

After a convention wholeheartedly dedicated (by which I mean they gave out signs which none of the dozens in attendance read) to the idea of service to something greater than one’s self, the end result is a clear message to America’s struggling communities: organizing to improve your lot in life…

The barracuda has a pee-pee

Update: Apparently the song is about the evil record executives. Which doesn’t, considering the make-up of the record industry’s top honchos, make a bit of difference to the awesomeness of my title. Especially not when it was written in the 70s. If it makes the Wilson sisters feel any better,…

Your Electoral Fact Of The Day

Barack Obama got more votes in losing the Oklahoma primary by 24 points than Sarah Palin has received in her entire life. It’s not that I think that any of these are particularly good arguments, it’s that the McCain folks have decided to use every fact that makes Palin such…

Governing By Osmosis

Larry Kudlow, who hasn’t seemed to notice that Sarah Palin is destroying the market with her Alaskan Godzillan hatebombs, writes today about how the Hockey Mom from Hell is going to solve our energy problems because she’s close to a lot of oil. You have to wonder, though – since…

Oddly Expected

Sarah Palin’s command experience of the Alaska National Guard as it relates to foreign policy amounts to exactly nothing. She did get to send a plane to Louisiana, though. It was a big plane.…

Paaaaaailin Away

Her backdrop is the endless void of the soul. This is a good start. Why do they keep using McCain’s middle initial? Did you know that McCain was in the military and supported the war in Iraq? Because I was confused. I thought he was a community organizer. Unlike Barack…

To My Dear Conservative Friends

Maybe the reason the media didn’t focus on John Edwards’ travails as much as they’re focusing on Sarah Palin’s is because nobody asked John Edwards to be on a presidential ticket. It’s amazing how saying “I should be a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world” makes…
