The libs are in an absolute uproar over Gov Sarah Palin's pick as VP for John McCain. The statements and comments around the blogosphere are truly offensive and just downright disgusting.
Case in point - Confederate Yankee reports that some brilliant KOS kids are claiming that Palin's youngest child is actually the child of Palin's 16 year old daughter. No - I'm not kidding... And if you dare read the comments in the KOS thread, they actually take Palin to task for having a baby with Down's Syndrome. Some even claim she's a bad mother for not staying home and baking apple pies...
The "ever classy" Bill Maher opened his show with an idea for a new sitcom - Maverick and the MILF. And that was one of his nicer statements...
Babs Boxer goes on the attack... (courtesy of KOS kidz)
Senator McCain had so many other options if he wanted to put a woman on his ticket, such as Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison or Senator Olympia Snowe -- they would have been an appropriate choice compared to this dangerous choice.
In addition, Sarah Palin is under investigation by the Alaska state legislature which makes this more incomprehensible
Note to Babs - you might want to do some research and get your facts straight before throwing out snarks... But then that would be out of character for you.
Diana DeGette (CO-1) decides to pick up the Obama camps talking points...
The selection of Governor Palin is an insult to women. She has obviously been chosen to appeal to female voters, but she lacks both the experience and policy positions to serve as Vice-President of the United States."
"The announcement of Governor Palin's selection on John McCain's 72nd Birthday highlights the fact that the Vice-President must be qualified to step into the Presidency from Day One. Sarah Palin is a 2-year governor with zero foreign policy experience whose former position was mayor of a town of 9,000."
Obama can claim "knee jerk reaction" from campaigns all he wants but Bill Burton has been his g0-to guy for statements and the original statement came from Bill Burton.
Here's just a samplin' of some of the statements about Gov Palin over at the KOS asylum.
Palin is Bible Barbie
She is Mucklucks for Jesus Barbie!!!
That crazed glint in her eyes is only because she windexes her granny glasses once an hour - cleanliness is next to godliness you know! So cut it out and get in there and support her "Mucklucks for Jesus" campaign.
This is an empty pantsuit right wing puppet choice.
Sarah Palin is to Hillary Clinton as Clarence Thomas is to Thurgood Marshall.
And she wears fake non prescription glasses in order to appear smart
the list is MUCH, MUCH longer ... her love of Walmart, cluelessness about Iraq / the VP job / etc, etc
Now substitute "Black Man" in place of "woman" and imagine the uproar from the Left and the Media...
All this proves that McCain made the absolute right pick. When the libs go this far with attacks, you know that you did something great.
I challenge all bloggers to spread the comments about Gov Palin far and wide - let the rest of America know how the libs treat a woman VP nominee when there is a R behind her name.
