Jon Stewart, Right On Target, AGAIN!

Jon Stewart, Right On Target, AGAIN!

Bush is at it again, he dusted off his 2003 War Mongering speech, rearranged a word or two, here and there and hammered us ALL over the head with it AGAIN! Ahhhhh, run and hide under the bed, the Boogieman is after us but this time he's not bearded and living in Iraq... This time Boogieman looks like this ... YIKES!

Do the Republicans still think WE ARE THAT DUMB? You bet they do. But with the likes of Jon Stewart on our side, they can't believe in our inability to grasp reality, for long. What would we do without Ole' Stewart, he pulls out videos
from the past and plays them side by side with newly recorded ones... Guess
what? They almost sound, sputter by sputter the same... Can't Ole 43
come up with some new material for Pete's sake? I guess not when you are the proprietor of a ONE TRACK MIND!

Conservatives starting to panic about Palin

Prominent conservatives are finally starting to realize that an unqualified half-term hockey mom from Alaska might not be the best choice to be a 72 year old heartbeat away from the presidency. Here’s the brutal roundup.

Kathleen Parker:

It was fun while it lasted.

Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie
Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is
Clearly Out Of Her League.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I’ve been pulling
for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I’ve also
noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent,
my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful.Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted. Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there’s not much content there.

Wingnut extaordinaire K-Lo:

I’m not where my friend Kathleen Parker is — wanting her to step aside to spend
more time with her family and Alaska — but that’s not a crazy suggestion.

McCain campaign insiders, via Ed Schultz:

McCain Camp insiders say Palin “clueless”

Capitol Hill sources are telling me that senior McCain people are more than
concerned about Palin. The campaign has held a mock debate and a mock press
conference; both are being described as “disastrous.” One senior McCain aide was
quoted as saying, “What are we going to do?” The McCain people want to move this
first debate to some later, undetermined date, possibly never. People on the
inside are saying the Alaska Governor is “clueless.” Etc., etc., etc., etc. CROOKS AND LIARS

Palin talks to Couric -- and if she's lucky, few are listening
James Rainey - LATimes

Her third nationally televised interview, with CBS anchor Katie Couric,found Palin rambling, marginally responsive and even more adrift than during her network debut with ABC’s Charles Gibson....

Katie Couric carves up Sarah Palin

Kansas City Star

Palin looks unprepared to be vice president (and certainly president)...

Couric shines, Palin doesn't in CBS interview

The Oregonian

Ouch. Only one of the two women showed poise, focus and a good grasp of the facts, and it wasn't the one who's running for vice president....

I’m sorry — Sarah Palin is a bad joke

Jay Bookman - Atlanta Journal and Constitution

Palin is living, breathing proof that John McCain lies when he claims to put this country first over politics. She makes Dan Quayle look like Albert Einstein with a better haircut.

Shameless and clueless Sarah Palin

David Horsey - Seattle Post-Intelligencer

How would Republicans be reacting if Gov. Christine Gregoire were the Democratic candidate for vice president and she claimed that, because Washington borders Canada and sends trade missions to Japan and China and Russia, she is, therefore, experienced in foreign policy? And what if Gregoire also claimed to be a seasoned commander-in-chief because she is titular head of the Washington National Guard? We all know how Republicans would react: they would roar with mocking laughter. And they would be absolutely right to mock such idiotic pretense.

Jake Tapper quotes conservative columnist

Kathleen Parker

Watching the CBS interview of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin did not exactly fill Parker with confidence:

"Palin's recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity and now
Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident
candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

Babbling Palin ‘makes George Bush sound like Cicero’ Rod Dreher a religious-conservative blogger who frequently appears on Fox News and was as recently as last week a Palin supporter, says the Alaskan Governor "was mediocre". Dreher says he felt "embarrassed" listening to Palin "regurgitating talking points mechanically, not thinking. [She’s] just babbling.

She makes George W. Bush sound like Cicero."

Talk about brutal!
Who's still excited about her here?

The elitist wing of the conservative movement has always been wary of us libertarians coming into the GOP. Sarah Palin is one of the top elected libertarian Republicans in the country, (along with Idaho's Gov. Butch Otter, and Cong. Jeff Flake of AZ).

Of course, she's going to make some conservatives nervous.

They are wary of her libertarian cultural views. This is the woman, after all, who famously fought back against social conservatives in Wasilla who wanted to run all of the bars and taverns out of town.

They even started a whisper campaign in Alaska during the 2006 primaries that Sarah wasn't really a Republican, but rather a "closet libertarian." She had attended a couple local Libertarian Party meetings seeking their support.

But what she loses from the social conservatives, she gains 10 times over in libertarian votes.

Figure, Libertarian Bob Barr was polling 6% nationwide in mid-summer. As high as 10% in New Hampshire. And post-Palin he's now down to 1%.

Ever since Goldwater the eastern establishment Republicans have distrusted Western cowboy individualists in the GOP.

With Sarah Palin, the libertarian wing of the GOP has finally arrived. Of course, that's going to make some other Republicans nervous.

Get over it Conservatives, THE LIBERTARIANS HAVE ARRIVED!!
