Republican Nominations

I hereby nominate Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska and Republican candidate for Vice-President for a honorary membership of the Screenwriters' Guild. The comedians merely have to quote her words to parody her.

I hereby nomination John McCain, Senator and Republican candidate President for an Oscar for lifetime achievement. His performance fooled an nation for decades (admittedly, a nation that is exceptionally gullible) that believed in his honor. Only now in the heat of the campaign is the actor's mask beginning to slip; he has no escutcheon to blot; and his motto turns out to be "Dishonor before Death".

To quote TPM:

Who They Are, What They're About

So we have McCain today getting his crowd riled up asking who Barack Obama is and then apparently giving a wink and a nod when one member of the crowd screams out "terrorist."

And later we have Sarah Palin with the same mob racket, getting members of the crowd to yell out "kill him", though it's not clear whether the call for murder was for Bill Ayers or Barack Obama. It didn't seem to matter.

These are dangerous and sick people, McCain and Palin. Whatever it takes. Stop at nothing.
