I’m still happy that I can say “President Obama.”
But some things make you say WTF?:
The Obama administration is fighting to block access to names of visitors to the White House, taking up the Bush administration argument that a president doesn’t have to reveal who comes calling to influence policy decisions.
President Obama, this is an easy one. You’re supposed to be all about accountability and transparency. You’re not a dork obsessed with secrecy like President Cheney was.
Give us your White House visitor log.
Thank you Sarah Palin!
A political action committee is thanking Gov. Sarah Palin for her conservative values and service to America in ads timed for release around Thanksgiving.
Our Country Deserves Better Committee, a PAC that supported Palin during her vice presidential candidacy, will begin airing the ads on Tuesday.
In one, comforting music plays as images of Palin are flashed on a screen and a male voice says, “Gov. Sarah Palin, a grateful nation wishes to thank you for serving the people of America with a servant’s heart.”
The more cynical among us might prefer to thank Sarah Palin for giving us endless hours of comedy and for handing the election to Barack Obama.
Today, in the parking lot of my local supermarket, I ran across this bumper sticker:
I’m not sure what this sticker might mean. upon completing a google search of “palinism bumper sticker,” I’m still baffled. There are no clear matches.
I take it to mean something like Michael Barone’s statement that “journalists trashed Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republicans’ vice presidential nominee, because “she did not abort her Down syndrome baby.”
Or am I reading too much into this?
Sadly, I’m still obsessed.
Did anyone see her on Fox’s Greta show last night?
She was cooking in her business suit and put some hot dogs in buns and then placed them in the oven.
Who does that? I was worried about the buns burning.
Later, she stuffed the hot dogs with cheese.
Again, who does that?
I’m not questioning her abilities as a chef, but what the fuck was she doing with those hot dogs?
Sen. John McCain said Thursday that Sen. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are rising as the economy seems to sink “because life isn’t fair.”
“He certainly did nothing for the first few days,” McCain said Thursday on Fox News. “I suspended my campaign, took our ads down, came back to Washington, met with the House folks and got on the phone, and also had face-to-face meetings.”
John, life certainly isn’t fair. But it might be more fair if you told the truth about these things. You didn’t suspend your campaign, you didnt take down your ads, the GOP House folks ignored you and you went out for a fancy dinner with your buddy Joe Lieberman.
And you led on the bail-out issue?
From the LA Times:
After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs.
Palin told him that “dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time,” Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said “she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks,” recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska.
Not really a surprise, but still, WTF?
