Reality: Republicans’ Final Frontier

By Yul

Republicans are now fixating on who’s “real.” Sarah Palin recently told North Carolinians that certain parts of the country are more “American” than others. She meant small towns like Wasilla and wide-open spaces like the Alaskan tundra. Anywhere the inhabitants are sparse, live simply, and may be poorly educated.

It’s those evil city slickers with diplomas who read books and newspapers (and can name titles) and care about the world around them who aren’t “real” Americans.

They think too much and ask too many questions.

North Carolina’s Representative Robin Hayes, while campaigning for McCain, recently added that “liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God.”

The McCain campaign has declared Northern Virginia “not real” because it leans Democratic. McCain’s brother Joe went so far as to jokingly call it “communist country.”

For a party that side-steps facts like the cast of River Dance – on the reasons for invading Iraq, stem cell research, healthcare, teen sex, evolution, global warming, Palin’s qualifications, you name it – their sudden zeal for real is truly bizarre.

Columnist Leonard Pitts asks, if they’re real, what does that make the rest of us? Fake?

Well, you can dress a Barbie Doll in a $150,000 wardrobe (Mrs. Joe Six-Pack should be so stylish) and program her to chirp platitudes when you pull her string, but that doesn’t make her a real choice for VP.

Palin still doesn’t even fully understand the job.

Unable to bring himself to play the court jester for his party (again), Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama. I guess that makes Powell fake, too.

    Yul,
    Who could have predicted that this week would end with a complete Republican retreat from reality? First the story (immediately disseminated by the McCain campaign and Fox news) of the McCain volunteer being sexually assaulted and mutilated by a 6’4″ Black man, while withdrawing money from an ATM — completely made up! And then, the news that the highest paid staffer on the McCain campaign being Sarah Palin’s make-up artist — talk about artifice. I’ll bet Adele went crazy over the make-up story, since she. like Alice, relies on her natural beauty. Alice always says that just letting the hair grow out on your face hides a multitude of sins.

    What I found most incredible was the $13,000-a-month makeup artist. WHAT IS SHE DOING? Trendy glasses aside, Palin still looks like she hasn’t seen the inside of a groomer’s in 20 years.

    Adele thinks Palin’s hair “poof” is created with loose hair she saves from her brushes and wads into a ball that she pins on top and covers with still-attached hair. The gross things are called, aptly, “rats” – and they’re FREE.

    That phony story about the volunteer being attacked by the black man is just another example of how McCain appeals to nut jobs. NOTHING like that has ever come out of the Obama campaign, nor have his supporters been screaming at rallies for McCain’s death.

    Can you imagine if Obama EVER said anything even remotely as nasty about McCain or Palin as they’ve lied about him? He’d set race relations back to the Civil War.

    And Republicans like to think THEY’RE the civilized ones.

    See the referenced article below, this woman’s excorcism is all over YouTube. Search on “Sarah Palin exorcism”. She goes to a crazy Pentacostal “church” that speak in tougues, but in 2002 changed to a less radical church, but still a nut church. There she is in all her glory having demons cast from her…I ask you can you seriously belive this is a candidate? Jefferson and John Adams must be spinning in their graves!!

    She and her pastor(s) believe that Alaska is the refuge for the chosen after the holocost. She believes she is doing god’s work and that by creating the end of days she will be saved with all, the rest of her crazies and “meet Jesus in her lifetime”. (that’s a direct quote)

    This is who we want to have the nuclear codes? Her husband is a sessionist…he belonged to a group that wants to SECEDE FROM THE UNION!!!!!!!! If that ain’t un-American what is? She is the devil sent to us under ther guise of a politician she means to hijack the office of president to do the devil’s work. She is all that is evil, parading around as christian.

    Christ did not cary a gun, speak in tongues or live to provoke armed conflict and wars betweeen sovereign nations. FOLKS BE VERY, VERY AFRAID. SARAH PALIN IS DANGEROUS.

    Robert Mackey’s article was right on the money. How dare Palin accuse Obama of “palling around with terrorists” when she not only sleeps with a guy who would love to see the U.S. torn apart, but has presented him with 5 spawn to brainwash with his poisonous ideas.

    Instead of bad-mouthing Obama, she should be thanking her lucky stars he and Biden weren’t raised to be the same kind of low-down trailer trash she is. The gentlemen have been too polite to stick their hands into her formidable pile of dirty laundry and air any of it.
