OK! Middle of the week, what some call “Hump Day.” The thing is no on ever humps with me on Hump Day, so fuck that! For me it’s Ass Wednesday just because…
I’m just sayin’

Seems like Hockey/ Soccer/ Wal-Mart super mom, Sarah Palin, doesn’t shop at Wal-Mart at all. Since being picked for the VP spot, the RNC has spent over $150,000 accessorizing everyone’s favorite bimbo. Yup, you read that right. I don’t know about you, but most of the middle class mothers I know don’t make that much in one year, let alone spend that much on a wardrobe.
According to Politico, financial disclosure records show the Sarah Palin accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74. You might ask why this is relevant and my response is that for someone who shamelessly exploits the image of patriotism (“real Americans”), and everyday folksiness, she sure has elitist tendencies. That cute little red leather jacket up there? I could buy groceries for a family of three for what it cost.
You betcha! ::wink::
Sarah, as my friend Sunshine says, is the gift that keeps giving. She recently let loose with a brain fart of such proportions, it was heard around the world. Perhaps if she would pay as much attention education as she does on her cheekbones, she would actually know what the vice president actually does.
Speaking of boners, will someone please send out the “STFU!” memo to the dumbfuck Democrats sticking the feet in their mouths? To paraphrase the repugnicans, democrats have the uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the maws of victory.
Someone please put something in Joe Biden’s mouth so he could STFU? WTF was he thinking when he literally guaranteed an international incident that will test an unproven Obama? Joe: the strategy is to stay focused on the economy, stupid!

And why is Joe Murtha calling his own constituents racists even if it is true? Pennsylvania Rep. John Murtha gave the rapidly sinking Republicans ammunition Wednesday when he called his own constituents “racist” in an interview with his local newspaper. Joe? We all know a significant portion of the old white folks in your district still live in the Jim Crow era, but you’re not supposed to say it till after the election!
And what about my own Senator, Chuck Schumer? Chuckie actually said, “The tectonic plates are changing, and it serves us well. And I think it will mean that Barack Obama — and I said this six months ago, before the financial crisis, I said it publicly — will get more than 300 electoral votes. And I think it helps us in the Senate in a very significant way.”
Chuckie? STFU! You’re not supposed to say shit like even if true!
On the other side of the aisle, the repugs should reconsider their stance on gun laws seeing as how so many of them, in an apparent bid not to be outdone by foot-in-mouth Dems, are shooting themselves in the foot.
There’s Michele Bachmann, who Democrats and some Republicans have criticized for her MSNBC comments, which included her call for the news media to conduct an “exposé” on the views of members of Congress to “find out are they pro-America or anti-America.” Michele, who now claims she was a victim of a “trap” (yeah, her mouth) shot herself in the foot again, by denying she ever said it! People? If it’s on tape, you can’t say it was taken out of context. She said it. Period. Click here to watch Bachmann deny her statements and then actually saying it (LOL)!
This is the equivalent of sticking your foot in your mouth and actually breaking it in the attempt to remove it.
As a result of her comments, people sent money to the democrats by the truckload. Her opponent, Elwyn Tinklenberg, received close about $700k since her statements and she may lose her seat.
Who said life ain’t fair?
But the biggest giver of all has to be McCain. From his hair-brained decision to pick Palin to his comments pre and post the economic meltdown, his abysmal debate techniques, to his planting of Joe the Plumber (who’s neither a Joe nor a plumber and a McCain’s campaign contributor), McCain has consistently demonstrated that he lacks the leadership and temperament to lead.
