The dumbassitude that keeps on giving.

The Democratic establishment recognizes a gift horse when it sees one:

Dem Strategists: Sarah Palin Is The New Rush Limbaugh

... Multiple Democratic strategists say the party plans to increasingly elevate Palin in the same manner it has employed Rush for weeks, using her high-visibility, her social conservatism, and memories of her harsh attacks on Obama during the campaign to tar the GOP as partisan, obstructionist, and backward-looking.

James Carville, a key architect of the Limbaugh strategy, says Dems will be seeking to elevate Palin more and more, because she’s “an identifiable person who has a hook,” unlike GOP leaders like Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell.

“Her name conjures up all kinds of reactions in people’s minds,” Carville told me, adding that her association with the campaign will be used to portray the GOP as hidebound and to alienate moderates. “She’s an uncomfortable figure for a lot of Republicans,” Carville says. “They want to move beyond her. We like her.”

“Luckily, she seems to present us with an opportunity every few days,” added a senior Dem strategist. “You could say it’s a turkey shoot.”

And then there's your "Hunter"-flavoured, Blogging Tory retarditude:

What was gained? Nothing, except showing how scared the lefties are of Sarah Palin.

I swear, I don't think I'm ever going to get tired of that one.

I wonder how Palin's Christian Fundy base feels about her cozy relationship with Scientologists Greta van Susteren and her husband.

yes, that's right, we are terrified of Sarah Palin, terrified I tell ya! And Michelle Bachman too! Palin-Bachman in 2012 would be an unbeatable combination for the GOP.
And I can only hope and pray that the Tories don't appoint Bev Oda to replace Stephen Harper. Then, we'd be totally doomed to an endless Conservative majority.
Oh please conservatives, don't throw us in that ole briar patch!
