Ah, so it's about image, not substance. That is, after all, what got Obama elected.

You're throwing your lot behind Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin. Take a step back and really look at her. This is what you are supporting. Give me a fucking break.

It could also just be the hallmark of an active person and their habits. We already know she is a runner. If you are cycling, playing softball or running as I am often doing, you don't exactly carry around notebook paper.

Speaking about style over substance though, here is the entire speech has as she gave it and it clocks in at 40 minutes long. If all it takes is a few notes, what was it a total of six words on a hand, for her to give a 40 minute speech that seems quite adequate to me.

Perhaps Biden should have written the word Avatar on his hand. They he could have remembered what the hell he was trying to talk about in that most recent gaffe of his.

I can just see the political ad now:

Someone asks her what her name is.

Cut to scene of her looking at her palm.

Cut to scene where she answers "You Betcha!"

She must be doing something right, given the left seems so obsessed with her. Could be her looks. I don't find her particularly attractive, but compared to H. Clinton, N. Pelosi and M. Obama, she's gorgeous.

The right is obsessed with her and the left is wondering how the fuck she is captivating the hearts and minds of so many people. It makes no fucking sense. Stop trying to offload your obsession onto us.

Because she's got more news coverage and more of a following than she deserves. Because it should scare everyone shitless that she could have been a heartbeat away from the Presidency last year and may aim higher in 2012. What, are we now allowed to start a thread asking:

Only because it provides so much comedy relief, at the same time that it shows how stupid Republicans can get with their choice of who to look up to or support.

Maybe it's her looks. Personally I don't find her attractive, but I guess all the Republicans who like making negative comments about the appearance of Clinton, Pelosi and MO might choose their politicians that way.

Oh... and... as long as we're talking about first ladies' looks...

Nancy Reagan? Barbara Bush!!!??? LOL.

Generally speaking, the main stream media has a liberal bias, so my point about liberal obsession with her stands.
Get over it. Your boy won. You got what you deserve. How's his approval rating, by the way?
I'm not the one starting threads and obsessing about her. Are liberal women so ugly, you guys have to fawn over a Republican? I know Hillary looks like a dyke, and M. Obama looks mannish, but surely there are some decent looking liberals you can turn your attention to.

You do realize that the first people to use the phrase "tea-bag" in association with the movement were members of that very own movement, right?

Tell a lie until it becomes the truth is the M.O. I suppose.

This was already addressed. The exception never proves the rule and news organizations call groups what they call themselves, not what they think they want to call them. You will never find another example of the news forgoing a groups formal name for their own made up slang for them.

This single incident that proves yet again how they have come off the bench and instead are playing the game. They are no longer the mainstream media that happens to have a liberal bent. They are the liberal media machine. They are the group that gave Obama more positive press than Bush and Clinton COMBINED. That is in part because they were actually reporting news back when Clinton was in office.

It isn't right to call them mainstream anymore as well. Their ratings clearly show them to be fringe elements espousing their partisan views. CNN and MSNBC do not put up the ratings of Fox News even when COMBINED. Thus most liberals have turned to the Daily Show because rather than still pretend to dish the news, they'd rather have full out mockery instead of snide asides while trying to present a few remaining facts.

Reagan brothers spar over dad's view of Tea Party movement


Quote:
"I think he would be unamused by the TEA partiers with their Hitler signs and all the rest of it," Ron Reagan said in the January 26 interview on CNN's sister network. "No, I don't think he'd be cottoning to that much at all. As much as we're wringing our hands about the Democratic Party though and it's all well that we do that, we have to remember that the alternative, the Republicans are a true train wreck – a train wreck. Look at Sarah Palin. Look at Scott Brown. You know."

When it helps your position:

A single example is all you need as prove of a widespread happening.

When it doesn't help your position:

A single example doesn't represent the realities of the whole situation and how dare you be so simplistic as to claim that it's merely an example of a widespread happening.

Obamas failures -- the war, health care, wall street, are all a result of him leaning too far right to appease the supply-side and cowboy foreign policy fuckers. All policies "Palin' around with morons" embraces.

Obama's failed policies are not the socialist ones. Cultural? I'm white, male, Christian born American.

I guess I'm one of those California tree-huggers.

Though I'm admittedly more socialist than I am green.

The idiocy of conservative Americans is that the success of Socialism in Europe is ignored or denied, and the morons keep linking socialism -- a financial policy -- with Stalinism or Maoism -- political policy.

My number one cause is narrowing the wealth gap and providing the opportunity for the pursuit of happiness for all world citizens equally. Number two is social liberalism -- the equality of same sex relationships and economic and religious freedom from discrimination. Number three would be environmentalism.

But those people who believe in flat taxes and unregulated markets -- let's be honest here, economic anarchy, are the ones who really make me feel ill. The people who think there's nothing wrong with how the Waltons treat their employees know nothing about compassionate humanity. And the ones who enjoy shooting wolves from helicopters and teach their family "abstinence only" to disastrous effect and write notes on the palm of their hand for a professional speech for which they are being paid tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars are the ones who deserve ridicule.

My bad; I figured you to be a Chinese communist.
You may want to take a look at Europe's unemployment rates and economic outlook before calling European socialism a success.

LOL point and match. You're so ignorant that you're still linking socialism with "Chinese communism", even after I call conservatives out for making such an idiotic connection. You honestly don't know what socialism is if you think Russia's or China's failures were due to their economic policy.

And likewise. You're denying the success of European Socialism just like I predicted. Could you possibly be any more predictable?

The success of Europe is not measured by the unemployment rate. It's measured by the standard of living. Which even for the poorest unemployed Dane or Swede or Nederlander is WAY better than it is for the average American patriot working three jobs.

"You work three jobs? … Uniquely American, isn’t it? I mean, that is fantastic that you’re doing that."
- Not Obama

Obama thinks working three jobs is a problem that needs to be solved. Too bad he's too busy pandering to the right to actually solve it.

I'm working 25 hours a week and loving every minute of life, partially thanks to the Socialist policies of the very place in the world considered to have the highest amount of economic freedom.

Meanwhile your friends earning $250,000 per year are struggling. You do the math. My one hope is that every American has the opportunities you and I have, and the wisdom to translate those opportunities into happines the way I have done, not into an unhealthy obsession with money, money, money.

An anecdote: A friend of mine is currently visiting the States. She caught a cold. She bought over-the-counter medicine and had an allergic reaction. She asked me, "can't I just go to the doctor?"

You see, in Hong Kong, we can just go to the doctor and pay US$12.50 for a consultation at a public hospital or US$25 for a visit to a private doctor. You can do that even if you're not a resident or citizen. In the States, if you don't have insurance, good luck with that! Yeah. Best medical system in the world. Riiiiigt....

No, actually, I said I believed you to be a Chinese communist, given your name and location.
Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands are very small countries, which can not be compared to the US. All of the Eurozone countries is a fairer comparison. Having travelled throughout Europe, and lived in several countries therein, I can tell you our middle class is far better off than the average European. My kitchen alone is about the size of the average European flat, and I have air conditioning to boot.
