A cautionary tale….

The story of The Vet Who Did Not Vet:


Attack on McCain volunteer a hoax

Pursuant to my brief post yesterday, I saw at least several of those posts on WordPress’s main page all about this “attack” and when I poked over to look at some of them, there were the nastiest comments about Obama supporters and Obama himself. So, now all their inflammatory BS was for this. Ashley Todd lied about the whole thing and all the Repubs jumped on and fell all over every word. McCain even called and offered his support. From an article on Huffington Post,

John McCain’s Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the hoax story about the attack on a McCain volunteer well before the facts of the case were known or established — and even told reporters outright that the “B” carved into the victim’s cheek stood for “Barack,” according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions.

So, I think this whole story shows the desperation of the McCain camp, that they’ll use something like this to smear Obama without knowing the real facts and continue to make their campaign about trashing Obama & Co., not about the issues.

As for Ashley herself, a fellow blogger, at The plaid lemur found some videos Ashley Todd had on YouTube. And here is Ashley’s YouTube Channel. She’s just a tool of a campaign that has spiraled more and more down a dirty, nasty path and she knew exactly what she was doing. Last night on The Rachel Maddow Show they had a really good discussion of this story and a list of false accusations of black men by white folks for crimes, on many occasions, the people making the accusations are the guilty ones.:

Here’s a clip of yesterday’s Rachel Maddow show:

And I’m taking one of Plaid Lemur’s videos of Ashley Todd and posting it here:

And at the McCain/Palin rallies

The tone at McCain/Palin rallies have gotten increasingly hostile very recently and last week when McCain tried to calm down some of his supporters that were shouting out, “Kill him,” and hurling racial slurs, saying that Obama is a respectable person and to treat him with respect, he was booed.

And if you haven’t seen the video of this creep yet from a Palin rally in Johnstown, Pa…

And yesterday Palin dropped the puck at the Flyers game yesterday and got greeted with boos. Apparently too, Fox News edited some of the coverage to cover up the boos and said that there were more cheers than boos. It made me think of this clip from the Simpsons:

And here are some clips of Palin being booed:

The McCain Wander

A friend posted this today and I practically fell off my chair laughing. If you noticed during the last debate, McCain spent a whole lotta time wandering aimlessly around the stage and even walked in front of the camera at the end.

The Huffington Post put up a video montage today of comedians taking on McCain’s wandering…there’s some from Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and of course SNL. Enjoy and laugh your ass off.

See it here:

Bristol Palin & Levi Speak Out

I found this in my online travels last night and had to post. From the website Palin Juno,

Bristol Palin & Levi Johnston finally sing out about Sarah! Starring Jeremy Redleaf & Shelly Stover. Written by Jeremy Redleaf & Aivan Astor. Directed by Jeremy Redleaf. Produced by Brackets Creative

A little spoof of Juno (and if you haven’t seen Juno yet, get to your Netflix queue and add it now!). And if you’re interested in the song and/or video, it’s both are available for purchase on the website for your iPod or iPhone. Here’s their music video.:

Hey Sarah…

A friend posted this on her Facebook and I’m stealing it to post here. To the tune of Hey There Delilah by the Plain White Tees (and BTW, I will have this song stuck in my head all night now!):

The lyrics:

Hey Sarah Palin, do you tell them in Wasilla
That 4,000 years ago we roamed the planet with Godzilla
Is it true
I am so fucking scared of you
As number 2

Hey Sarah Palin, I think Alaska’s very pretty
But just 100,000 people more than Oklahoma City
Yes it’s true
Go look it up, Im telling you
Oh man, were through

Oh, if you become VP, oh, its Canada for me (2x)
Its Canada for me

Hey Sarah Palin, did you really once inquire
Whether you could throw library books into a big bonfire
God, my eyes
This really might be our demise
This pack of lies

Hey Sarah Palin, just because you’re good at shootin
Doesn’t mean you have the ammo to negotiate with Putin
Are you on coke
This fucking countrys up in smoke
Oh what a joke

Oh, if you become VP, oh what will it mean for me (2x)

Just because I can see the moon
Doesn’t make me an astronaut, you loon
Your foreign policy expertise is pooh
Do you really think a woman commits
To a candidate just because she has tits
Please tell me that this ticket is not true
I thought that there could be no worse
Than Cheney, but here you are, I curse
The madman who would cast a vote for you
And McCain too

Hey Sarah Palin, is it media distortion
Or would you tell a girl whos raped that she could not have an abortion
Its a new low
Who knows just how far you would go
Id rather vote for Ross Perot
Hey Sarah Palin I dont know
Where can we go


Misc Palin Fun

I was poking around online and found some Palin things are worth checking out…

Wanna play Palin Bingo? This would have been perfect for Thursday:

and my friend showed me this mock up picture:

P. Diddy’s thoughts on Sarah Palin…usually P. Diddy/Puff Daddy bugs me, but this made me laugh:

Dave Letterman’s take on Palin:

And in case you missed Palin being healed by the witch doctor:

Try to have a good day!

VP debate

Well, as predicted, the debate was really painful last night. I was online chatting with friends during the debate, getting nauseous at Sarah Palin spouting the same ol’ rhetoric, misstating facts, dodging questions and using her folksy lingo. Meanwhile Joe Biden spoke intelligently, bringing up what he and Obama would be doing to change how things are run in Washington. My friend really had a great blog today about the debate, so I’ll refer you to read her post since it sums up most of my thoughts (on a new blog…so, support my fellow blogging friend 🙂 ):

Debate? Are you sure that’s what I watched last night?.

Also, one of my friends pointed me to this article on Slate.com. It was written before the debate, but it’s still relevant. If you’re a grammar/writing guru (like I can be when I’m in the mood), check out The sentences of Sarah Palin, diagrammed. It’s a pretty interesting read.

Finally, here’s a little flow chart of the debate:

Here’s Olbermann’s brief summary of the debate:

A great Joe Biden moment last night:

and Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on SNL:

I’m a little confused

I won’t take credit for digging this one up myself, my friend F posted this on her Facebook & MySpace. I love it and just had to pass it along. It really shows the hypocrisy of the McCain/Palin camp:

The Sarah Palin Disney Movie

A friend pointed me to this funny video…If you haven’t heard, Matt Damon several weeks ago said how scary it is that Sarah Palin is a heartbeat away from the presidency (and yes, it *is* scary. Thank you Will Hunting!) and that this is all like a bad Disney movie. Check out this funny trailer for what that movie might look like. Sadly it doesn’t embed well (and isn’t available on YouTube). But definitely take a second to watch it, it’s hilarious!
