will be next.
looks like her face could peel off at the mouth an it'd just be an insect sittin there in front of some levers
Apparently there’s a debate going on within the Democrat Party as to whether Joe Biden should hold back in the V-P debates. If he was to really let fly, he’d tear her apart and there are fears that it could win her sympathy votes. We’ll see what happens.
Anyone who votes for someone for public office because they got dismantled in a political discussed is a fucking moron
it's going to take something to beat McCain now.
i agree with you latter statement, but the first one is clearly completely rendered redundant by this interview.
it scares me shitless but that's why i see.
the terror she makes me feel doesn't give me sight.
all politicians are slippery cunts, they're either predisposed to it or they learn it quickly on entering the arena. But I love all of the entertainment they're putting on for us, it's better than an episode of Neighbours. It's the best political show the Yanks have given us since Monica Lewinsky.
let's try and have some faith that the American voting public are as discerning as me and you..
after he asks her about the 'Bush Doctrine'
Like Pauline Hanson's 'please explain' moment....
who would have thought her political career was just a segueway into the world of dance?
She is ridiculously inexperienced. Unfortunately her views on key issues (pro-life, pro-hunting, anti-gay rights) will be enough to impress a large number of people who look no deeper. Anyone impressed by the "hockey mom" shtick (ooh, I'm a mother... and she's a mother... *votes*) should be drowned in a sea of piss.
and the whole "My son is heading out to Iraq to SERVE HIS COUNTRY, etc etc" things she wheels out every other sentence. WE GET IT ALREADY.
also: your son is called 'Track'. WTF?
I don't stand in the polling booth deadlock, Cameron, Brown, they're both men! What am I to do?!
see this as the last time they'll be able to see a woman in high office, possibly President. i think there is an emotional significance to it.
but yours rings true too.
because everyone is fucking stupid.
if she ever gets in power. If McCain gets elected (and I'd bet good money he will) I'll be praying he doesn't snuff it while he's in office.
I do like that the BBC iplayer volume goes up to 11 :D
a heartbeat away from the presidency...
probably would though.
to beat Bob Mugabe
We are the mediocre presidents.
You won't find our face on dollars or on cents.
There's Taylor, there's Tyler,
there's Fillmore and there's Hayes.
There's William Henry Harrison "I died in 30 days"
We are the adequate, forgettable, occasionally regrettable caretaker
presidents of the U.S.A.!
the statement I made on Wednesday about the 'DiSers you think you are most like' or whatever it was where I stated your name.
I think its cool that our Pantone colours are thus:
Pantone Process Blue
talk about changing things and ruffling feathers only as a way to distance themselves from the current administration. If you compare their policies to the those of Bush & chums, there aren't too many major differences as far as I've seen.
in that I don't appreciate the bullshit, of course I'd expect her to have typically Republican policies.
But a large number of people who do vote in America will vote based on that bullshit alone.
We're going to change things up! By carrying on on the exact same path!
then stop trumpeting about how you're about to bring 'change'. The whole thing is eerily close to an Onion story from 2004 which had Bush promising to 'clean up Washington and bring back pride in the White House' if he was re-elected
What they have finally learned is that it is better to put a simpering Blair-clone up as the face of the party rather than the usual half-dead swivel eyed lunatics.
But the 'nasty party' is still very much there and calling the shots.
yeah. It's only surface deep, but then as we all know that's all it needs to be.
The internal workings of the Conservative party, or in this case the Repubs, are of no consequence to the voting public.
Policies are what we're talking about here, and there is no indication, through either policies or actions thus far that suggest anything but a continuation of the status quo. Which makes this new theme of 'Change' nothing but empty words.
they just finally got a leader who understands why New Labour were so popular and can ape their tactics convincingly. The party remains the same.
Firstly, we aren't talking about the Conservatives, we're talking about the Republican party. They're not even close to being directly interchangeable.
Secondly, you're talking theoreticals anyway - as I said, there has been no indication that ANYTHING is changing with the Repubs - if anything, as the campaign progresses, all the indications are that even less will change than first thought (from McCain bringing in increasing numbers of Bush staffers, the selection of Palin as a femme Bush-clone, even to the nature of the campaign they are running). If you can provide some actual, concrete examples of what they would do differently, some examples that actually indicate 'change' in any substantial form, then do so.....until then your whole argument is moot anyway.
But honestly - to argue that the Republican party can run on a theme of 'Change', when they've been the incumbent party for 8 years, is beyond ludicrous
The fact that they are, and it's working, is something you just have to take your hat off to. It's just so ballsy. A sensible person would say "c'mon, an autistic child could see through that!" but McCain's team said "to hell with it!" and did it anyway. And it paid off.
Whoe was it who said "no-one has ever gone broke underestimating the american public"?
Kudos to you Repblican party, you sinister bastards. Kudos.
with people who don't care about being logical. And there is no incentive for politicians to follow logic in anything they do.
do you just mean everything else will be the same but theyre gonna 'change' president so its ok to call it 'change'
mainly to neutralise Obama's talk of Change? thats what I assumed.
But steal it wholesale. They're preaching change while quietlyoffering more of the same. And according to the polls America is swallowing it. It's textbook stuff.
The whole Palin thing once again has me in awe of the Republican machine. On paper she's a terrible choice but they've managed it so well they've actually got the Dems on the ropes. Which given the state of play pre-conventions is utterly stunning.
they moan about foreigners telling them how to vote, but we wouldn't have to if they weren't generally such insufferably stupid mongs.
1. Joe Biden's son is off to Iraq too, but he's got a touch more class than to keep bringing it up every second sentence
2. If she's asking for the media to write about this, then why are they forbidden from mentioning her daughter's pregnancy - either your family is off-limits or it isn't - you don't get to have it both ways
she broke the law when she told everyone the exact date her son was starting his service in Iraq. Arf.
I really am that stupid.
she messed up the Bush doctrine question and actually managed to answer that she is against it, which was probably not in the party line.
If I use the argument that I am so incompetent and inexperienced I am a breath of fresh air (while dodging questions about corruption and lying my way through every speech), and would consider nuking Russia, I don't think I'd get the job.
on that performance i would have very little confidence of her when it comes to being deputy worlds most powerful person
A: You can actually SEE Russia from land here in Alaska!!!!!!!!
It's ironic that despite her 'christian' beliefs, she's the type of cunt that'd ruin the world. FUCK religion. Anyone within the vicinity of being in charge of the world shouldn't be religious. They'll only make things worse. Fucking vile cunt. She believes that a girl should have the baby if the father was a rapist doesn't she? How can a woman that believes this be the vice president of the most powerful man in the world? Seriously? She needs her arm chopping off. Vile cunt.
