Sarah Palin (and John McCain) are sexist

It’s interesting watching right wingers attempt to imitate liberals decrying sexism. Forever and ever conservatives have denied that pointing out sexism is a legitimate thing to do, because in Wingnutland, sexism doesn’t exist and anyone who says that it does is a whiny, hysterical bitch who can’t cut it with…

Focus defends Alaska-bound Love Won Out ex-gay roadshow endorsed by Palin’s church

Daddy D’s traveling pray-away-the-gay indoctrination circus, Love Won Out, has been receiving an inordinate amount of media attention because its upcoming stop is in Anchorage, Alaska, the state of fundie veep nom Sarah Palin. In fact, it’s being promoted by her church. Apparently the folks at Focus on the Anus’s…

One area Republicans are stil moderate

I’m a little wary of this story about how Sarah Palin turned a blind eye when rape victims in Wasilla were forced to pay for their own investigations. Even if she is responsible—and she’s so firmly anti-feminist it isn’t hard to see that she could be—it’s all too easy for…

Chuck Norris dubs Palin ‘The Maverette’

After reading that Michael Reagan believes Sarah Palin is the reincarnation of his father, former president Ronald Reagan, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at the asshattery that comes from the keyboard of faded action star-turned-WND-columnist Chuck Norris. He goes back a few more centuries — McCain’s running mate evokes…

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…
