Salon.com: Meet Sarah Palin’s radical right-wing pals
The Palins’ un-American activities
You see, I've actually been busy. At my job, midterms are next week and my thyroid is all a flutter again, which means a medication change but, until it takes effect, I'm much more tired and sleepy than usual (maybe it's this election and the growing anticipation that comes with it.)
Anyway, starting this past weekend, Dumb Dumb Palin is on a new project. She's basically trying to tie Obama to a 1960s radical William Ayers. It's a last minute attempt at character assassination.
Let me just say it's not working.
She's also associated with "terrorists" too and, according to general wisdom, she associates with fringe characters. However, clearly blind to her own associations, someone has convinced this silly woman that it's time. It's time for the inevitable mud slinging that starts in the October before a US presidential election. However, what's great is with so many pundits, bloggers and (gosh darnit!!!) Google searches, people can fact check a lie in a heartbeat.
This stuff does not appeal to people who are either 1) already supporting Obama and 2) undecided. The only people I can imagine who buy this malarkey are people who are already entrenched in the McSame camp who have a bad habit of only turning critical eye to people with whom they disagree.
I was going to write on it, but Keith Olbermann, in his awesome way, hit her hard. It spares me the trouble of writing about it and, damn, he's also very entertaining while doing it.
Riddle me this?
- How can you make an allegation of this sort when your husband was member of the Alaskan Independence Party, a party that wants to secede from the United States and whose leader expressed a virulent hate for the United States?
- How can you seriously make this allegation when you've associated with people on the fringe too? Can you say "Pastor Thomas Muthee?"
The transcript of Olbermann's rant: It's Palin doing the pallin' ;)
