Why I Don't Like Sarah Palin

If you have been paying any attention to the “lamestream” media you have probably heard why liberals hate Sarah Palin.
More than likely these reasons come from supporters of Palin, and not the critics of her themselves.
Holier-than-thou Blowhard, Bill O'Reilly elucidated liberals hate Palin along with Michelle Bachman because they are pretty.
Former amateur porn model “Dr.” Laura answered the question from the right-wing Einstein, Sean Hannity that the reason is because Sarah has “big balls”.
Jim Geraghty of The National Review says it is because she didn't divorce her husband and abort her Downs Syndrome kid.
The varied reasons go on and on. And all are pure nonsense.
If these people sincerely want to make a show or print an article about why the left doesn't like Palin, why don't they simply ASK SOMEONE ON THE LEFT WHO DOESN'T LIKE HER?
The obvious reason would be that they don't want to give attention to someone who can legitimately point out what is wrong with her.
After all, these peoples jobs are to merely prop Palin up as to lend support to a phony populist ideology that the corporations are pushing on us.
In an honest debate about Palin, where the liberal has a chance to talk without being shouted down or having their words edited, I would imagine his or her words would be something like this:
Why do I hate Palin?
Well, where to start? So many places. How about a bullet list? (pun intended)
1. Her dishonesty. She repeatedly lies, unchallenged, about the most ludicrous things.
And no, it doesn't happen on both sides either. Remember the supposed “lies” from Bill Clinton about not inhaling or not having sex with that woman? Did they go unchallenged? Of course they didn't. Whole networks and radio lineups were created around challenging those “lies”.
Yes, we probably would hate her a little less, if a competent liberal had the opportunity to have an equal chance to respond to her stupid dishonest statements about Death Panels and “paling around with terrorists”.
2. She's a moron. Ok. Maybe that isn't a reason to hate her, but hey... we are still neck deep in a mess because of the 8 years of a moron president and his bumblings. The thought of going through that again is to repulsive of a thought to have to deal with.
She barely can make a coherent statement in a friendly, non confrontational environment. When she couldn't answer a simple question from Katie Curic about what periodicals she reads, she played the persecuted victim of “gotcha journalism”. Calling her an empty suit is an insult to haberdasheries everywhere and I would like to take this moment to apologize to Mens Warehouse, Eds Big and Tall and all the other related clothing outlets in America for my use of that term in the past.
3. She is religiously insane. Maybe the comments about the Alaskan Pipeline being God's will and the war in Iraq is a task from God, is just right-wing hyperbole, but her membership in a church who believes in the “end of times” non-sense along with the belief that they can raise the dead does give us concern.
4. She shoots wolves. Ok, we do know that there has to be some type of reasonable population control of these animals but we can't help but think making a sport of shooting them with high powered rifles from a helicopter along with throwing poison gas grenades in the dens to kill the pups is repulsive. Hey. We are liberals. We like animals and find this type of behavior horrific.
5. She is always portraying herself as a poor persecuted victim of the media. She keeps on pretending that the left is trying to silence her and she is just barely getting her message out. She repeats this on her Facebook, Twitter, Internet sites, and various Sarah friendly shows on Fox completely oblivious of the fact that she has a bigger microphone than 99.999999999% of anyone else on the planet.
When those of us on the left, who have been warning for months that her violent rhetoric was dangerous, pointed out that she bears partial responsibility to goading that crazy man to unload 30+ rounds into a crowd in Arizona, she jumped on that “I'm the victim” bandwagon once again and announced that the left was blaming her because they really want to bring the country to her knees. Evidently she thinks of herself as a Samson type of hero, fighting off the hoards of attackers solo with only the jaw bone of an ass, keeping the liberals from destroying America.
It can't be that we honestly believe what we are saying about her rhetoric, oh no. We really want to destroy America and she is standing in our way. How silly.
So that is some good reasons. There are more, but that is enough to not like someone. Right?
No, Bill O'Reilly, we don't hate her because she has nice looking tits.
No, Dr. Laura, we don't give a crap how big her balls are.
No, Jim Geraghty, we don't care she chooses to stay married to an imbecile or has a special needs child.
No. We don't like her because she represents everything that is wrong with America. She appeals to the lowest common denominator. She does not believe in religious liberty unless it is her religion. She slaughters animals for sport. She takes dishonesty and divisive rhetoric to an all knew height.
She is repulsive.
The honest question should not be why do liberals hate Sarah Palin but why, bumper sticker slogans aside, do you like her?

Asshole of the Week - Sarah Palin

This edition of AotW was a toss up. I wanted to write about the Orange Man, John Boehner and his refusal to attend the ceremony in Arizona honoring the victims of the shooting tragedy, but decided to go with the shrill harping publicity whore, Sarah Palin instead.
This pitiful excuse for a human being immediately went on the defensive when some people suggested that the hateful rhetoric she and her cohorts have been spouting may have helped drive the insane fucker over the line and went on the shooting spree.
She released a self serving video addressing the tragedy that says despite the 20 people who were shot, 6 killed and 14 wounded, she was the principal victim.
Click here and watch the stupid video if your stomach can handle it.
Palin, having to “endure” the discourse went on to invoke the term “Blood Libel”. To be honest, I had no idea what the fuck it meant at first.
Turns out it is a horrible lie Christians used to say about Jews. She is either ignorant on what it means or an anti-Semite. I figure it is a whole lot of the former with a touch of the latter.
This stupid asshole could have come out with a speech addressing the divided rhetoric and make a promise to tone it down on her side, mention the victims by name, and express regret on any part, if any, of her rhetoric that could have caused this crazy man to arm up and do what he did.
Her approval points would have probably sky rocketed.
Instead the dumb ass got snotty and defensive, played the poor persecuted victim of the “lamestream media” and invoked antisemitism. I bet she gets real unpopular fast.
Good for you Sarah. I was half joking about how I hoped you became the GOP nominee in 2012, but now I want you to just go away. Just go the fuck away.
Go back to Alaska and start shooting things. Maybe get an A.M. Hate radio talk show. Become Glenn Beck's co-host. Get someone to write another stupid ass book with your name on it.
You never had any credibility to begin with. Now you are no more than Glenn Beck with nice tits.
Fuck you Sarah. You asshole.

Chicken Crap

"I'm trying to catch my breath so I don't refer to this maneuver going on today as chicken crap, alright?" Boehner said, according to Politico. "But this is nonsense. Alright? The election was one month ago. We're 23 months from the next election and the political games have already started, trying to set up the next election. We had an honest conversation at the White House about the challenges that we face to get out of here and to take care of what the American people expect of us. And they roll this vote out today, it really is just what you think I was going to say anyway."

~John Boehner

This is what the new Speaker of the House had to say in December, when the lame duck Democratic controlled congress called for an up or down vote for an extension of Bush Era tax cuts which would have maintained the current rates for 98 percent of Americans, families earning under $250,000, while letting the rates of the top two percent return to their pre-Bush-era rates.

As a refresher, back in 2003, tax cuts were passed by the then Republican controlled congress.

These tax cuts affected tax rates as follows:

As you can see, a married couple earning up to $46,700.00 a year, except for the narrow range between $12K and $14K, got no tax relief at all, while those earning over $300,000 a year got a 3.6 percent tax cut. To illustrate, a couple earning $500,000.00 a year got to keep $18,000.00 more of that income in 2003 and in subsequent years since then.

Boehner's accusation back in December was that the Democrats, knowing that the measure was doomed from the start, were engaging in political theater and playing games.

Now that the Republicans have taken control of the house, repealing the health care reform law is the first thing on their agenda.

Flexing its newfound muscles, and ignoring their newly minted rules, the incoming GOP majority is preparing to vote next week, without hearings or a chance to make changes, to cancel Obama's signature health care law, engaging in the same maneuver they were so outraged about only four weeks ago.

It looks like John Boehner and the whole Republican wing of the new congress are knee deep in the chicken crap. What a bunch of self-serving hypocrites! Barely a month ago, they were outraged that the Democrats would call for an up or down vote on a measure to extend tax relief to all but the wealthiest Americans, and now they are doing the same song and dance to pander to their base, knowing that the Senate is still controlled by Democrats and if, by some miracle, a repeal made it past the Senate, the President is sure to veto it. A little quid pro quo theater to pacify their campaign contributors.

Who would a repeal of the health care law benefit? Wealthy Americans have health care plans, and money to pay co-pays and deductibles, and other items which insurance does not cover, This is another example of the poor and the middle getting shit on so that the upper crust can continue to live the American dream.

Why poor and middle class voters continue to be dragged down the garden path is a complete mystery to me. Not extending the Bush Era tax cuts to the top two percent would have gone a long way in knocking down some of the deficits which seem so troubling to conservatives. It seems that they much prefer to whittle away at social programs, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education and infrastructure than to saddle the wealthy with a 3.6 percent tax increase. I’ve been hearing that luxury goods made a strong come back this past Christmas season. I’m sure that is heartening news to the unemployed who are hoping like hell they don’t get sick because their insurance coverage left along with their jobs.

Chicken crap indeed.

Orange is the New Green.

The Republican Bastards led by the orange fucker John Boehner (R-Weeper) take control of the House of Representatives today.
The first thing they promised to do is introduce legislation to repeal Health Care Reform and have it ready to vote on by friday.
These are the same mother fuckers who cried and yelled that Democrats were rushing Health Care reform through even though they debated on it for two goddam years.
Now they want to push the repeal through in two fucking days.
We all know that it will not get anywhere in the Senate, and even if it did by some fluke, Obama would simply veto it.
While this is just typical Republican posturing, looking like they are doing something but in all reality not doing a fucking thing, we do have to worry about the fact these assholes now control the purse strings.
After the bluster is over with, depending how much the repukes feel that the people are on their side, they may try to cut funding on parts of HCR.
Obama would be powerless to stop them to, as it is the House who has that right.
Normally I wouldn't worry about them doing anything so fucktard stupid as to cut coverage to uninsured children and such, but with this bunch, you never know.
What a bunch of fuckers.
Hypocritical bastards actually get on their soap box and with a straight face use the deficit as a reason to repeal HCR.
This after adding nearly a trillion dollars to it by extending tax cuts to the wealthy.
The insanity is just now gearing up.
How long before the birth certificate investigations start?
