Here's McCain's hack and Fox News complaining about the potential to ask Sarah Palin (Idiot) hard questions on Thursday. Assuming she shows up.

And remember, asking her any tough questions, or hell, asking her any questions at all, is sexist. Women shouldn't have to answer questions if they want to be President. Just the men.

All's fair in political debates...

If she isn't prepared, she will be turned into sushi by Sen. Biden.

McCain, your Rovian tactics are well known to the American People. We do not like them, or you/r VP 'candidate'.

You have no shame, so Palin gets No Mercy. Deguello: No Quarter, No Prisoners...

You're on your OWN, Cutie Pie... Your good looks and cheerleader smile will not help you out of this jam. You will be turned into jelly by a Real Statesman.

Count on being eviscerated Thursday, and a worldwide laughing stock on Friday. SNL will have plenty for the next show too.

Bye bye, Mooseturd.

Palin has faced rising criticism in the press, including among conservative commentators, for avoiding the media over the last four weeks. The attacks have also expressed doubts about the Alaska governor's potential ability to serve as vice president.

Her Democratic counterpart, vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden, has given over a hundred interviews with national and local media since being nominated in late August.

Palin has given three interviews, including her most recent interview with CBS News last week that has prompted calls, even among some former supporters, for her to step down as the nominee.

Conservative columnist Kathleen Parker wrote this week that "Palin is clearly out of her league" and called for her to leave the race.

Palin has the ultimate advantage.

If Biden 'attacks' one of her GOP-inspired distortions of reality, she can look 'hurt' and wipe a tear from her eye.

Biden immediately looks like a big, bad bully.

Sheer Rovian Genius!

I can't believe this bitch is still on Tv, well you McCain supporters want to know a little information on one of his many lobbyist advisors? This woman has been all over tv with her lies that she is selling to a very troubled nation...Are you still buying it?
Nancy Pfotenhauer, McCain’s Dirty Energy Spokeswoman»

On “Fox and Friends” yesterday, Nancy Mitchell Pfotenhauer — a top policy adviser for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) — derided those who say that lifting the offshore drilling moratorium won’t affect gas prices, saying it “reveals ignorance on the futures markets.”

That position puts her at odds with the federal Energy Information Administration, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA), McCain economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin, and even McCain himself. Why would Pfotenhauer go so far off message?

Perhaps it’s because the only ones who would benefit from lifting the moratorium are energy companies like Koch Industries (pronounced “coke”), the largest private company in the United States, the secretive backer of the right-wing message machine, and Pfotenhauer’s longtime boss.

Koch Industries Is The Secret Dirty Energy King. With $90 billion in annual sales, Koch Industries is the largest privately owned company in the United States. Begun in 1940 as an oil refining business by Fred Koch, his company — now controlled by sons David and Charles Koch — has diversified into “refining and chemicals; process and pollution control equipment and technologies; minerals and fertilizer; fibers and polymers; commodity and financial trading and services; and forest and consumer products” — a global warming pollution factory. [Forbes, 2007]

Koch Industries Is At The Center Of The Right-Wing Message Machine. Koch’s founder, Fred Koch, also helped found the John Birch Society, an ultraconservative organization that believed the U.S. government was controlled by a traitorous cabal of Communist sympathizers. Koch Industries’ charitable arm, the Koch Family Foundations, has provided over $120 million in the past 20 years to the Cato Institute (founded by Charles Koch), Citizens for a Sound Economy (founded by David Koch, now Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks), the Heritage Foundation, George Mason University, the Federalist Society, the Mercatus Center, and dozens more right-wing, anti-regulatory, and global-warming denial organizations. [Media Transparency]

Nancy Pfotenhauer Is A Pure Right-Wing/Koch Industries Product. Pfotenhauer’s resumé includes George Mason University (funded by Koch), Citizens for a Sound Economy (founded by Koch), Americans for Prosperity (founded by Koch), and the Independent Women’s Forum (funded by Koch). She also worked directly for Koch Industries as their top Washington lobbyist. When not on the Koch payroll, Pfotenhauer worked for the Republican National Committee, Sen. William Armstrong (R-CO), and Dan Quayle’s Council on Competitiveness. [Media Transparency, Dunamis International Ministries]

After graduating with a master’s in economics from George Mason University (funded by Koch) in the late 1980s, Pfotenhauer became the “chief economist” at the Republican National Committee before the age of 24. She then worked for George H.W. Bush’s transition team and Sen. William Armstrong (R-CO), and was then appointed to be “chief economist of the President’s Council on Competitiveness,” Dan Quayle’s secretive anti-environmental project.

During the Clinton years, she rejoined the Koch Industries machine as “executive vice president for policy” of the Koch front group Citizens for a Sound Economy. With her then-husband Daniel Mitchell, a Heritage Foundation economist, she co-hosted the call-in show “Mitchells in the Morning” on National Empowerment Television, run by Heritage Foundation founder Paul Weyrich. From 1996 to 2001, she was the top lobbyist for Koch Industries.

While working for Koch, she divorced Mitchell and married Gordon Smith’s (R-OR)’s chief of staff Kurt Pfotenhauer, now a top mortgage-industry lobbyist. In 2001 she was named president of another Koch front group, the anti-feminist Independent Women’s Forum (IWF). In 2003 she also became president of Americans for Prosperity (originally CSE), until joining the McCain campaign in 2007.

Nancy is typical of the conservative, Stepford Wife type of spokesperson. They are raised by rightwingers to be rightwingers and do it well. Mostly blond, blue eyed and wholesome looking, they spew venom like a snake. Make no mistake, they are cruel, vitriolic and driven by values shared by Bush,Cheney and all the country’s nut case Repbulicans. Ignore them at your peril. They need to be attacked as viciously as they attack us.

"If Biden 'attacks' one of her GOP-inspired distortions of reality, she can look 'hurt' and wipe a tear from her eye."

See anon 11:11 for clues as to why this will no longer suffice.

The tide is out and she is naked.

She has cashed her check already.

NOT a pretty political picture...

Biden will destroy her with finesse and class of a true statesman and her very thin veil of 'credibility' she inherited/bestowed and the nation will cheer. She will be lucky to escape back to Wasilla without being repeatedly subpeonaed in her other alleged political antics and McCain will be finished. Down in the ditch with all the other low-rent hustlers and fixers like Karl Rove, et. al.

McCain will be lucky to get work in the civilized world (or Phoenix-Scottsdale) once the worm turns which will be about this Thursday night. Maybe sales manager at a Buick dealer in Nogales? He can always write a book. Maybe about combat flying techniques?

After thursday debate, anyone seriously supporing that ticket needs to be placed under immediate observation by mental health professionals...

We Never Liked You Anyway, John...

Veni Vini Vinci!
