Reporter: Well, you say you're sure that she has the experience, but again, I'm just asking for an example. What experience does she have in the field of national security?

McCAIN: Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America. .... And we all know that energy is a critical and vital national security issue.

Katie Couric interviews Sarah Palin about reforming the finance industry:

    COURIC: You've said, quote, "John McCain will reform the way Wall Street does business." Other than supporting stricter regulations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac two years ago, can you give us any more example of his leading the charge for more oversight?

    PALIN: I think that the example that you just cited, with his warnings two years ago about Fannie and Freddie "” that, that's paramount. That's more than a heck of a lot of other senators and representatives did for us.

    COURIC: But he's been in Congress for 26 years. He's been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.

    PALIN: He's also known as the maverick though. Taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he's been talking about "” the need to reform government.

    COURIC: [...Da hell you say !?!...] I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?

    PALIN: I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to you.

    COURIC: [...Da hell you say !?!...]

How dare Couric ask the question three times in an effort to elicit an actual answer? She has obviously become a tool of the Obama campaign and is hereby banned from further contact with the McCain campaign on the grounds of insufficient deference.

Yeah, I knew that, but it seemed like something The Onion would print. And Katie was probably thinking "DHYS?" in her mind. Big Grin

I read through some on the comments and this one stood out: "Some may find her efforts to answer without political evasion an endearing quality." For a minute I thought the writer had a point. What with the current climate of anti-intellectualism, her fans could spin it that way. But, at some point ignorance has to be recognized for what it is.


"A very wise TV executive once told me that the key to TV is projecting through the screen. It's one of the keys to the success of, say, a Bill O'Reilly, who comes through the screen and grabs you by the throat. Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I'm sure I'm not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, "Hey, I think she just winked at me." And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can't be learned; it's either something you have or you don't, and man, she's got it. "

A women's shelter on Wednesday cut headliner Sandra Bernhard from its annual benefit after she said Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would be gang-raped if she ever visited New York.

Bernhard's made the remarks last month during her one-woman show in Washington before Palin visited New York to campaign. Bernhard said Palin would be "gang-raped by my big black brothers" during a diatribe in which she also criticized Palin for opposing abortion rights.

"All this P.C. is bullshit."--Mell Kuhn, mayor of Arkansas City, KS

The mayor participated in a beauty pageant fundraiser and "won awards for 'most creative talent' and the overall Ms. CASA [Court Appointed Special Advocates] 2008." His backup dancers were called the "Red Hot Puntangs."

Here's KKKuhn in blackface (my bad, he doesn't consider it "blackface" because he "can't do a black accent"--DHUA!?!) and without his white sheet and hood.

During the October 3 broadcast of Minneapolis radio station KTLK's The Chris Baker Show, Baker and fellow KTLK host Langdon Perry discussed Gov. Sarah Palin's "hotness." After Baker asserted that Palin is "hot," Perry responded, "She's the hottest vice-presidential candidate ever, but I don't think she's -- but I don't think she's standalone hot." Baker also said that Palin "shoulda had a little cleavage going" during the October 2 vice-presidential debate to "[d]istract [Sen.] Joe Biden a little bit," and added: "[S]how your stuff, you know what I'm saying? Use all your assets." He then said: "By the way, I noticed a panty line on her. ... When they turned to walk to the podium, I saw a panty line."

Baker went on to say: "By the way, I would say some of the shallowest political analysis you'll find anywhere on the airwaves -- but more real world. Tell me that people weren't looking at her and going, 'Oh whoa.' " Perry then remarked that Palin's "wink was a -- that wink was as 'come hither' a wink as I've seen."

As Media Matters for America documented, Baker said on October 2 that "I'm not that excited about women voting" and declared on September 18 that "it's rare to find a woman worthy of serving in political office."

From the October 3 broadcast of 100.3 KTLK-FM's The Chris Baker Show:

    PERRY: I really, I actually ended up liking Sarah Palin more after last night than I had before, but I still don't get the Palin-mania. I mean, I thought she made some decent points, I thought she handled herself better than I expected, and I think she's likable in a lot of ways. She's got a nice smile, and she seems likable.

    BAKER: Hot.

    PERRY: See, I think she's hot for a vice-presidential candidate. She's the hottest vice-presidential candidate ever, but I don't think she's -- but I don't think she's standalone hot.

    BAKER: Really?

    PERRY: In other words, if you just saw her on the street, I don't know if you'd go, "Man, she's hot."

    BAKER: Oh, I do.

    PERRY: She's hot for a vice -- it's the Mark Bauer theory of relative hotness -- but I think she's hot for --

    BAKER: Wait a minute, can you break down the Mark Bauer theory of -- well, let's do this. Let's take our first little break here.

    [...]

    BAKER: Did Sarah Palin change your mind? Now, we all remember, Sarah Palin will not be the president. But after watching that debate last night, I am certainly happier that, as the vice president, she's going to have John McCain's ear. I like that little wink to the crowd last night: "Oh, I'm going to try to turn him on that ANWR thing."

    PERRY: That was a "come-hither" wink.

    BAKER: Was it?

    PERRY: Oh, yeah. That was one of those -- that was --

    BAKER: And I -- and you know what else I got a kick out of was the shout-out to the elementary school kids.

    PERRY: That was so -- I hated every second of --

    BAKER: What do you mean you hated that?

    PERRY: It was so cute. She's so precious sometimes. It's just a little over the top for me.

    [...]

    BAKER: And she's got glasses, and I've always had a thing for women with glasses. So, see, I'm honest.

    PERRY: See, yeah. So, did you notice her high heels last night?

    BAKER: Love those.

    PERRY: 'Cause I think she was going all business upstairs and then she just went with the high heels for just a little "whoa, wow, hey" --

    BAKER: She's always wearing some, ahem, pumps, if you catch my drift. And that's good. Why not?

    PERRY: That's exactly what I called them this morning.

    BAKER: Very -- you know what, but women do that.

    PERRY: Yeah.

    BAKER: I mean, come on. Why do women -- why do women have to turn it down? I think she shoulda had a ---

    PERRY: I'm not saying she should have to.

    BAKER: -- shoulda had a little cleavage going there.

    PERRY: No, I just asked if you noticed --

    BAKER: Distract Joe Biden a little bit.

    PERRY: I didn't say she had to do anything. I just asked if you noticed.

    BAKER: A little action. Show your stuff. You know what I'm saying? Use all your assets. Anyway, 65 -- by the way, I noticed a panty line on her.

    PERRY: Did ya?

    BAKER: Saw it, yeah, at the beginning of the debate when they turned --

    PERRY: I truthfully did not look.

    BAKER: -- when they turned to walk to the podium, I saw a panty line.

    PERRY: OK.

    JORDAN (producer): I have to ask, for all guys, what kind of panties?

    PERRY: He didn't say he saw her panties.

    JORDAN: No, but he saw the line, though. You can kind of tell from the line.

    PERRY: You can?

    JORDAN: You should be able to.

    BAKER: Are you -- Jordan, it answers -- the statement itself answers the question.

    JORDAN: OK.

    BAKER: Panty line.

    JORDAN: All right, never mind.

    BAKER: 651-989-5855. Chris Baker radio show. By the way, I would say some of the shallowest political analysis you'll find anywhere on the airwaves -- but more real world. Tell me that people weren't looking at her and going, "Oh whoa."

    PERRY: The wink was a -- that wink was as "come-hither" a wink as I've seen.

    BAKER: You think?

    PERRY: She did two winks. She did the wink early, which was, "Hey."

    BAKER: But that's her.

    PERRY: Well, I didn't say it wasn't her. I just said it was a "come-hither wink." I didn't say it wasn't her.

    BAKER: All right, your phone calls next. It's the Chris Baker radio show.

A local [Virginia] newspaper columnist, in a spoof of Obama's platform [The (Clarified) platform of Barack Hussein Obama], wrote in one recent piece that the Democrat would hire the rapper Ludacris to paint the White House black (a reference to a pro-Obama song by Ludacris), and divert more foreign aid to Africa so "the Obama family there can skim enough to allow them to free their goats and live the American Dream." He joked that Obama would replace the 50 stars on the U.S. flag "with a star and crescent logo," an Islamic symbol, and that his policy on drugs would be to "raise taxes to pay for Obama's inner-city political base."

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis radio station said Friday it would air public service announcements on HIV/AIDS after a pair of talk hosts accused former NBA star Magic Johnson of faking AIDS.

KTLK's Chris Baker and Langdon Perry made the remarks during Baker's conservative talk show on Wednesday. After Johnson condemned the statements, the station said on Friday it regretted "some off-hand remarks" by the pair.

According to a partial transcript and audio clip posted on a media watchdog site, mediamatters.org, the remarks came after a caller asserted that health care isn't a basic right. Perry responded by asking about treatable diseases that a person can live with for a long time "if you just get some basic drugs."

Baker responded, "Like Magic Johnson?"

Perry replied, "Like Magic with his faked AIDS. Magic faked AIDS."

Baker said, "You think Magic faked AIDS for sympathy?"

Perry replied, "I'm convinced that Magic faked AIDS."

"Me too," Baker said.

Johnson issued a statement Thursday saying he was "outraged that Chris Baker and Langdon Perry would minimize such a serious and deadly issue."
"There are millions of people around this world praying to their god"”whether it's Hindu, Buddha, Allah"”that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons. And Lord, I pray that you will guard your own reputation, because they're going to think that their God is bigger than you, if that happens."

Da hell u sayeth!?!

That was Arnold Conrad, the former pastor of Grace Evangelical Free Church in Davenport delivering the invocation at John McCain's rally in Davenport, Iowa Saturday, October 10, 2008.

Yes ... it's a free country ... which among other things means that I'm free to express amazement/poke fun at what blowhards say.

That after all is what this thread is about. Big Grin hat
On the October 15 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Bob Grant said: "[W]hat is that flag that Obama's been standing in front of that looks like an American flag, but instead of having the field of 50 stars representing the 50 states, there's a circle?" He then said: "Is the circle the 'O' for Obama? Is that what it is?" Grant later said: "[D]id you notice Obama is not content with just having several American flags, plain old American flags with the 50 states represented by 50 stars? He has the 'O' flag. And that's what that 'O' is. That's what that 'O' is. Just like he did with the plane he was using. He had the flag painted over, and the 'O' for Obama. Now, these are symptom -- these things are symptomatic of a person who would like to be a potentate -- a dictator." '

Grant did not further elaborate on what he meant by the " 'O' flag." However, conservative blogger Michelle Malkin stated on October 13 that she had "received several e-mails today from readers complaining about Barack Obama's backdrop in Toledo today. Apparently, some talk show hosts have also gone ballistic over what they think is an 'Obama flag.' " But, as Malkin noted, the flag appearing behind Obama during his October 13 speech was actually the Ohio state flag.

Memo To Palin: Fruit Fly Research Has Led To Advances In Understanding Autism»


This morning, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) gave her first policy speech urging the federal government to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), "a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation." In the speech, Palin cited the need to do more for children with disabilities such as autism:

    For many parents of children with disabilities, the most valuable thing of all is information. Early identification of a cognitive or other disorder, especially autism, can make a life-changing difference.

Palin claimed that the amount that Congress spends on earmarks "is more than the shortfall to fully fund IDEA." She then ridiculed some of the projects "” such as "fruit fly research" "” saying they have little or no value:
    Where does a lot of that earmark money end up anyway? [...] You've heard about some of these pet projects they really don't make a whole lot of sense and sometimes these dollars go to projects that have little or nothing to do with the public good. Things like fruit fly research in Paris, France. I kid you not.
Palin did not specify what fruit fly research earmark she was referring to (presumably a grant for olive fruit fly research), but she is apparently unaware that scientific research with fruit flies has led to valuable discoveries that have boosted autism research, as a study at the University of North Carolina demonstrated last year:

    [S]cientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine have shown that a protein called neurexin is required for..nerve cell connections to form and function correctly.

    The discovery, made in Drosophila fruit flies may lead to advances in understanding autism spectrum disorders, as recently, human neurexins have been identified as a genetic risk factor for autism.
The study of fruit flies has also been used for other autism research and "revolutionize[d]" the study of birth defects.

i saw the so called "policy speech" and i remembered thinking that i heard somewhere fruit flies are good for research because they multiply so quickly and the genetic variation can be controlled (i have no clue where i heard this), no sooner than i had let my mind wander, then the newscaster introduced someone who talked about the connection between fruitflies and autism

i was ROTFLMBAO


it's so not encouraging that she is effing up EVERYDAY and allowances continue to be made for her... 8
These mofo's have lost their damned minds. Confused



(CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO.) - Taking the stage as one of the pre-program speakers at a Sarah Palin rally here in Rush Limbaugh's hometown, Sen. Kit Bond, R-Missouri, fired up the crowd by warning them about Barack Obama's judicial philosophy.

"Just this past week, we saw what Barack Obama said about judges," Bond said. "He said, ˜I'm tired of these judges who want to follow what the Founding Fathers said and the Constitution. I want judges who have a heart, have an empathy for the teenage mom, the minority, the gay, the disabled. We want them to show empathy. We want them to show compassion.'"

Bond then seized on Obama's comments to Joe The Plumber, saying the Democrat wants to redistribute wealth.

"He thinks this country should be a government"”not a government of laws, but a government of compassion and empathy, not of laws," Bond said.
