So i flip to FOX news every few hours just to see what they are up to and how they try to spin countless statements and campaign ads in favor of Palin and McCain. And they’re broadcasting a speech on the vote for the bailout plan, same as the other stations.
Well i switched to CNN headline news and the ‘showbiz tonight’ segment is on. are they serious? ‘are the sarah palin jokes getting too harsh?’ i guess they seem to forget all the countless jokes of Obama and muslims, or of Michelle’s ‘blackness’ or of mccain for that matter.
So why are we tiptoeing around the moose-hunting, so-called tough cookie palin? think that just a few months ago, CNN was covering stories about how hillary clinton shouldn’t cry about the criticism if she wants to play with the guys. so you really would rather be polite to sarah palin and smitten with her like a lovesick teenage boy than get gritty and ask her the tough questions and make fun of her like it’s going out of style? why not? if she’s a war veteran’s heartbeat away from being the most powerful person on this Earth, then why not? I don’t think people quite grasp the brevity of that. What happens if elected, sarah palin finally becomes president and messes up our foreign relations (not that it could happen, with her extensive foreign policy experience)? are we still going to be polite to her? in the face of a mistake, are we still going to forgive her? would we still rather look at her as the sexy librarian we wish we had in our neighborhood or start treating her like one of the guys?
BILLY BUSH: “The McCain campaign…I guess they thought it sexist? They responded…kind of the whole thing was…” TINA FEY: “I saw one lady trying to form a thought that it was sexist on the news, but she didn’t really get it together. Probably because she was a lady and she was dumb… Wait. Is that sexist?”
“Facebook was once the classy alternative to MySpace. Now it’s the classy girlfriend you once loved, but you begin to feel distant from because she wants to move into your house and tell you what colors to paint your walls and how to arrange your furniture,” said iReporter Sara Campbell, 26, of Louisville, Kentucky. “You’re given an ultimatum — marry me or it’s over. I wonder how many of us will give into the demands?”—
“She was actually a little emotional because of the firefighters memorial wall," Morabito said. "I think she was sincere with it. She was friendly. I think she actually is a decent person. She seems to be up to date [with] current events and everything that happened on 9/11. She’s been given enough information. I’m sure she knows as much as the common American.”—firefighter that toured with Palin in 9.11 memorial musem

“I’m a snob because I want to judge the intelligence level of someone who seeks the White House? That makes me a snob? This is not American Idol! This is not a beauty pageant even though her answers sounded like a beauty pageant!”—

“I like hearing myself talk. It is one of my greatest pleasures. I often have long conversations all by myself, and I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.”—Oscar Wilde
