Priorities.


As the campaign enters its final weeks, Caribou Barbie wants the American people to know that she really, really, really understands which issues are, like, super important, you betcha.

"In times like these with wars and financial crisis, I know that it may be easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life, and it seems that our opponent kind of hopes you will forget that," Palin told a crowd in Johnstown. "He hopes that you won't notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea is on this, and his record is, until it's too late."

Palin has mostly avoided raising her opposition to abortion rights on the campaign trail since she was tapped as Sen. John McCain's running mate, a fact she readily acknowledged in her remarks.

But Palin said Obama's record on the matter is too extreme to be ignored, and she spent 10 minutes of her 30-minute speech discussing abortion.

And who says that the Republicans are completely out of touch?

And furthermore ... Astonishingly enough, it's still the economy, stupid.

Barack Obama has surged to a seven-point lead over John McCain one month before the presidential election, lifted by voters who think the Democrat is better suited to lead the nation through its sudden financial crisis, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that underscores the mounting concerns of some McCain backers.

Likely voters now back Obama 48-41 percent over McCain, a dramatic shift from an AP-GfK survey that gave the Republican a slight edge nearly three weeks ago, before Wall Street collapsed and sent ripples across worldwide markets. On top of that, unrelated surveys show Obama beating McCain in several battlegrounds, including Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and Iowa _ four states critical in the state-by-state fight for the presidency.

Sweet tap-dancing Jesus – do you ever wonder how people that removed from reality still manage to walk upright? I do.

Sad truth. Palin may not have the elitist education Obama has, but she does have more experience. Both have attended churches where the message is far out crazy.

Both are unqualified.

LuLu said...

Reality, Wayne. Wayne, reality.

Obviously, you two have never met.

CC said...

Yes, Wayne ... all those fucking elites with their fucking learning and fucking education and all that fucking knowledge and snooty, high-falutin', elitist shit like that.

Honestly, Wayne, do you hire someone to change your adult diapers, or is some poor bastard family member stuck with that job?

The Seer said...

CC, I really think you should show more respect for Wayne.

Remember Levi Johnston?

Yeah, that Levi Johnston.

Baby due December 18.

Levi just dropped out of high school to take a job on the north slope. If a cultural leader like Levi doesn't need all that book learnin,' why would Wayne need it? http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/10/levi-speaks.html

(No word yet on the wedding date.)

Following the Andrew Sullivan link to The Washington Times, we learn:

"Johnston has dropped out of high school to take a job on the North Slope oil fields as an apprentice electrician."

I'm sorry ... where exactly are you eligible to become an apprentice electrician without even having a high school diploma?

s said...

You don't need a high school diploma to get an apprenticeship. However, many larger companies won't hire someone unless they have their diploma or equivalent.

What are you talking about; I took my business courses from Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York. Canadian schools were tooooo left wing for my taste.

I am educated, are any of you?

McCain and Biden are qualified. Obama and Palin are not.

Palin and Obama have both been influenced by radical religious beliefs,plus other radical people in their lives.

"Tell me what company you keep and I'll tell you what you are."
Miguel de Cervantes

Face it. This is a scary election in the US.

Obama=Palin=Scary

Wayne, Cornell? You are the elitist that you really hate? Such projection. Just like Cindy McCain calling Obama's campaign the nastiest.
There is no equivocation of Obama and Palin other than the vowels their names share.

Wayne said...

"You are the elitist that you really hate?"

Ahhhhhhh Shit. I do hate elitists. Just because I went to a great school does that make me one? I hope not.

Both campaigns are nasty and equally stupid.

One has a guy who could die at any minute, leaving an unqualified person to take his place, the other has a messiah that is equally unqualified, and can never live up to the expectations of the people of the WORLD.

Frank Frink said...

Cornell? I can think of at least one Liberal MP who was educated at Cornell.

And I'm sure you and he are just like two peas in a pod, Wayne.

Jeebus, U of C was good enuff for Big Daddy

For shiznit's sake, Dubya has a Yale MBA. He's edjumacted, too.

Point, Wayne? Wayne? Anybody else? Bueller?

Wayne said...

Back on point.

"Sweet tap-dancing Jesus – do you ever wonder how people that removed from reality still manage to walk upright? I do."

So do I. Obama and Palin come to mind.

"as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life, and it seems that our opponent kind of hopes you will forget that," Palin told a crowd in Johnstown. "He hopes that you won't notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea is on this"

I read an article recommending that Obama get down & dirty in response to the McCainiacs.

His formulation for this issue --
"Palin thinks that a rapist should have the right to choose the mother of his child"
