Suck on this, Republicans. Your day is over. The people are reclaiming their country.

It should be clear by now that Sarah Palin is an idiot. That's fine. But do you all realize how close she truly came to becoming President?

This was a very, very dangerous time in American history.

After eight years of destruction under a total moron, a man suffering from serious Oedipus issues and controlled by forces of evil and darkness, to suffer four more years under a similar conditions may have proven fatal for America - and the world.

Armageddon avoided, perhaps?

We do have three more months of possible Bush mischief. But at least we won't have to deal with the possibility of having Sarah Palin get the nuclear codes. A person who is easily the most ignorant person ever to have a shot at the Presidency.

Oh, a few reminders as parting shots:

[N]o religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

- Article 6, the United States Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

- The First Amendment to the United States Constitution

Enjoy the video.

Here it is folks. The most ignorant woman in America, (soon-to-be-former) Congresswoman Michele Bachmann R-MN. Even more clueless than Sarah Palin.

You want to see an anti-American Michele?

Look in the mirror.

You, dear, are a disgrace to America.

And no, being an idiot is not an excuse.

Looking back at it, doesn't the whole Sarah Palin (Idiot) debacle seem like some kind of bad movie?

Peggy Noonan on the dumbing down of American politics, and the biggest idiot of all - Sarah Palin

Here's Peggy Noonan, Reagan's former speechwriter, on the dumbing down of politics, and the queen of the idiots - Sarah Palin.

On the dumbing down:

More than ever on the campaign trail, the candidates are dropping their G's. Hardworkin' families are strainin' and tryin'a get ahead. It's not only Sarah Palin but Mr. McCain, too, occasionally Mr. Obama, and, of course, George W. Bush when he darts out like the bird in a cuckoo clock to tell us we are in crisis.

All of the candidates say "mom and dad": "our moms and dads who are struggling." This is Mr. Bush's former communications adviser Karen Hughes's contribution to our democratic life, that you cannot speak like an adult in politics now, that's too austere and detached, snobby. No one can say mothers and fathers, it's all now the faux down-home, patronizing—and infantilizing—moms and dads.

Do politicians ever remember that in a nation obsessed with politics, our children—sorry, our kids—look to political figures for a model as to how adults sound?

And on Palin the Idiot:

But we have seen Mrs. Palin on the national stage for seven weeks now, and there is little sign that she has the tools, the equipment, the knowledge or the philosophical grounding one hopes for, and expects, in a holder of high office.

It's unclear whether she is Bushian or Reaganite. She doesn't think aloud. She just . . . says things.

This is not a leader, this is a follower, and she follows what she imagines is the base, which is in fact a vast and broken-hearted thing whose pain she cannot, actually, imagine. She could reinspire and reinspirit; she chooses merely to excite. She doesn't seem to understand the implications of her own thoughts.

No news conferences? Interviews now only with friendly journalists? You can't be president or vice president and govern in that style, as a sequestered figure. This has been Mr. Bush's style the past few years, and see where it got us.

In the end the Palin candidacy is a symptom and expression of a new vulgarization in American politics. It's no good, not for conservatism and not for the country. And yes, it is a mark against John McCain, against his judgment and idealism.

Hard-core-Republican Chicago Tribune endorses Obama, says McCain put his campaign ahead of his country with stupid Palin pick

It really is nice to see the adults in the Republican party, the few that are left, admit the error of their ways, and put their country ahead of their destroyed party.

Maybe it's the first sign of redemption. Admitting they were wrong. Or maybe it's just that Obama is such a superior candidate for President.

Here's excerpts from the Tribune's historic endorsement today - the first non-Republican ever to earn their approval.

FROM THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE EDITORIAL BOARD Tribune endorsement: Barack Obama for president

On Nov. 4 we're going to elect a president to lead us through a perilous time and restore in us a common sense of national purpose.
The strongest candidate to do that is Sen. Barack Obama. The Tribune is proud to endorse him today for president of the United States.

This endorsement makes some history for the Chicago Tribune. This is the first time the newspaper has endorsed the Democratic Party's nominee for president.
The Republican Party, the party of limited government, has lost its way. The government ran a $237 billion surplus in 2000, the year before Bush took office -- and recorded a $455 billion deficit in 2008. The Republicans lost control of the U.S. House and Senate in 2006 because, as we said at the time, they gave the nation rampant spending and Capitol Hill corruption. They abandoned their principles. They paid the price.

We might have counted on John McCain to correct his party's course. We like McCain. We endorsed him in the Republican primary in Illinois. In part because of his persuasion and resolve, the U.S. stands to win an unconditional victory in Iraq.

It is, though, hard to figure John McCain these days. He argued that President Bush's tax cuts were fiscally irresponsible, but he now supports them. He promises a balanced budget by the end of his first term, but his tax cut plan would add an estimated $4.2 trillion in debt over 10 years. He has responded to the economic crisis with an angry, populist message and a misguided, $300 billion proposal to buy up bad mortgages.

McCain failed in his most important executive decision. Give him credit for choosing a female running mate--but he passed up any number of supremely qualified Republican women who could have served. Having called Obama not ready to lead, McCain chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. His campaign has tried to stage-manage Palin's exposure to the public. But it's clear she is not prepared to step in at a moment's notice and serve as president. McCain put his campaign before his country.

Obama chose a more experienced and more thoughtful running mate--he put governing before politicking. Sen. Joe Biden doesn't bring many votes to Obama, but he would help him from day one to lead the country.

It may have seemed audacious for Obama to start his campaign in Springfield, invoking Lincoln. We think, given the opportunity to hold this nation's most powerful office, he will prove it wasn't so audacious after all. We are proud to add Barack Obama's name to Lincoln's in the list of people the Tribune has endorsed for president of the United States.

Third Obama/McCain Debate - SNL Version

Too bad the McCain campaign and the GOP are now dead. They sure were good for comedy. Even if they wrecked America.

Washington Post endorsement: "Mr. Obama has the potential to become a great president."

Mr. Obama is a man of supple intelligence, with a nuanced grasp of complex issues and evident skill at conciliation and consensus-building.

At home, we believe, he would respond to the economic crisis with a healthy respect for markets tempered by justified dismay over rising inequality and an understanding of the need for focused regulation.

Abroad, the best evidence suggests that he would seek to maintain U.S. leadership and engagement, continue the fight against terrorists, and wage vigorous diplomacy on behalf of U.S. values and interests.

Mr. Obama has the potential to become a great president. Given the enormous problems he would confront from his first day in office, and the damage wrought over the past eight years, we would settle for very good.

Obama at the Al Smith dinner last night

Some pretty good material.

Get used to your next president folks. He's gonna be in your living rooms for the next eight years.

October 16, 2008

For most Americans, here's what it comes down to. They don't want McCain in their living rooms for the next four years. He's a creep and he's an ass

In these out-of-control, falling-off-the-cliff times, after the Republicans wrecked America, people want a calm, positive, steady hand on the wheel.

And that's why Obama will win in the biggest landslide since 1984.

John McCain, on the other hand, is a liar, an ass, a jerk and a Grade-A son-of-a-bitch. He's unsteady, he's erratic, he's negative, he's angry, and he's frankly unelectable.

Nice job GOP. If you're going to go down in flames, might as well go big.

Huckabee, Mr. Likable, would have been interesting. Romney, Mr. Economics, would have had a chance. But no, you went with a loser. And now, you'll simply go away.


Here's the third and final debate. Have at it.

October 15, 2008

It's time for America to be America again.

It's been years in the making.

And now, it's here. The long shot of long shots, and now the ticket is a winner.

Enough Americans surprisingly wised up, finally, pulled their heads out of their rears, stopped listening to Rush and Hannity and O'Reilley, and said enough was enough. It was time for a change. A BIG change. And a good one. Even though change is tough, and messy.

America and the world can now start on reconstruction and rebuilding, after the most disastrous presidency in US history. It'll take some time, but the healing begins in just three weeks.

George Bush and the Republicans wrecked America.

But we can rebuild it. We have the technology.

And we'll have an inspirational, intelligent, grounded, once-in-a-generation leader who can get it done.

And for the haters and doubters, give the guy a chance. You might be surprised.

It's time for America to be America again.

A shining city on a hill.

John McCain and Sarah Palin - too stupid to know what they're doing is wrong?

Even though he was a total failure in school, I get the sense that McCain is smart enough to know what he's doing is wrong.

Palin though, being a confirmed mental midget, and having an absolute joke of an education, is definitely too stupid to know. Actually, she's about as dumb as the idiots showing up at her rallies right now. If not dumber.

Regardless of their limited intellects, both are obviously lacking a strong moral compass, one which would have pointed them away from this immoral and un-American garbage.

Three more weeks. If we can make it. Three more weeks.

I've gotta give it to the GOP and NAR - they are really quite good at what they do. You know, spreading lies, tearing the country down, that stuff

Too bad for them though that the nation finally wised up - at least enough of the nation that is. There are still 40% or so out there who don't get it. And probably never will.

October 14, 2008

It is kinda fun to watch the dying GOP turn on each other, before they go their separate ways

This party will splinter into two or three new parties over the next decade

1) The Neo-Cons
2) The Libertarians
3) The Ultra-Religious Nut-Cases + The Racist South

Get some popcorn, and enjoy the GOP blowing up.

The McCain campaign is a historical disaster. But don't listen to me. Listen to the Republicans.

Go ahead...

I'm not sure why Al Gore is in hiding during this election, because this 2006 speech speaking out about Bush & Cheney breaking the law is a classic.

Come on out Al.

Kick the GOP when they're down and kill the monster once and for all.

Presidents of the past fifty years in one word

JFK - Cuba
Johnson - Vietnam
Nixon - Watergate
Carter - Iran
Ford - WIN
Reagan - AIDS
Bush - Iraq
Clinton - Blowjob
Bush - Iraq
Obama - Cleanup

Would you like to see what a true as*hole looks like? A mean, evil, horrible person? Well, here's Rick Davis, McCain's campaign manager and lobbyist

I'll let this video speak for itself.

AmericaPANIC calls on Sarah Palin to remove herself from the GOP ticket, and to apologize Barack Obama and the American people

Sarah Palin is a national disgrace.

Just when you thought the GOP couldn't sink to new lows, they go out and sink to new lows.

The past six weeks have been six of the most shameful and embarrassing weeks in American political history. And last week was the worst, thanks to Sarah Palin and her handlers in the McCain campaign.

We went to a whole new level of political scum when the GOP vice presidential candidate insinuated that the Democratic nominee was essentially an un-American Muslim terrorist.

Yes, she is ignorant, and an undereducated unintellectual incurious fool, but this is no excuse. She should be ashamed, John McCain should be ashamed of her, Americans should be ashamed of them, and she should withdraw. And if she doesn't withdraw, she should be loudly opposed anywhere she rears her head.

The American people are going to withdraw her anyway in a few weeks, but for the good of the country, and to help avoid something truly tragic for the nation, she should apologize, repudiate her own hateful remarks, and withdraw.

She is a disgrace.


"Attacking Obama for his toleration of Bill Ayers is legitimate. Attacking him for not dissociating himself from Jeremiah Wright earlier is legitimate. Attacking him for raising taxes is fine. But associating him with "terrorists" in the context of large, angry crowds isn't. Calling him a traitor and someone who seeks to put US troops in harm's way in an emotionally fraught time isn't. Not immediately and strongly rebuking crowd cries of "terrorist," "kill him!" and "treason" isn't.

McCain must loudly and clearly disown and disavow this rhetoric soon. Or we all may live to regret it more deeply than we can currently imagine."

- Republican columnist Andrew Sullivan, October 2008

AmericaPANIC Serious Quote of the Day

"As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all. They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy. We can do better. The American people deserve better."

- Rep. John Lewis, while comparing the McCain campaign to George Wallace's campaign, October 2008

Here's John McCain, running as a Communist now, and his great idea to use your money to discount the mortgages of gamblers

Call it what it is.


McCain wants to use $300 billion to "put a floor under home prices", buying mortgages at the face value and letting gamblers (and their lender) enjoy the new lower market price. Obviously not understanding what contracts are, what the free market is, or that high home prices were and are the problem, not the solution.

What an idiot, my friends. What an idiot.

And I have no idea what's happened to John McCain. I think he's truly lost his mind. Because he sure has lost his way. How anyone even in the GOP can support this guy any longer shows you how clueless that crowd must be.

I've never seen a more desperate candidate for president in my life. It's amazing what desperation does to a man. He'll sell the last thing he has left. His soul.
