A challenge

I keep hearing McCain’s campaign complain about the sexist coverage of Sarah Palin in the media.

I’d like to see one example. No…not from “Billy’s Homemade Political Blog” but from CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.

What kind of country does McCain want if it is forbidden to ask questions about a vice presidental candidate? I would hope that they would welcome scrutiny because they have so much faith in Palin. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Should the American media just proclaim that if John McCain says she’s OK, so do we all?

What is happening here exactly?

 

So show me all this sexism…

UPDATE: I was accused of being “gruff” with someone this morning. No one ever calls a woman “gruff”…. now I know how poor Sarah feels when she is called “shrill”.

McCain just made a fatal mistake. It’s exciting right now…but in the end people will analyze what’s at stake and realize what they have known all along: McCain has impaired judgement and is only interested in showmanship.

Another shock and awe campaign gone awry for the GOP.

Hillary’s voters are too sharp for this bonehead, clumsy move. Palin is no Hillary Clinton….and they are not interchangeable just because they are both women.



Enough about Hillary and Obama…let’s talk about me!

Is it possible that all this time I just thought I had a big mouth when in fact I simply have an inflated ego? Could it be a combination of both? Probably.

Today I suggested, perhaps in an inappropriate forum, that it was time for the party to unify behind Barack Obama. I was shocked at the response I got from the moderator of the forum. If she is reading this, I hope that she can try to understand why I posted such a thing. But the response made me realize that feelings are, to say the least, raw. Who could have forseen that Hillary would not secure the nomination? But we are all adults here right? Able to accept defeat and move on?

Maybe not so much.

There I go again…big mouth. Condescending. Inflated ego. Ick. But I feel that something is happening here. The Democratic party of the last 8 years is dying. A new party has evolved out of the old. We had two strong cadidates…soon we will have one strong nominee, and it will be Obama (have I mentioned this lately?). It’s time to leave Terry Mcauliffe behind.

I want the Democrats to win because I love my country. The sleaze machine of the Republic party is scared, and they are going to be vicious. VICIOUS.

Can we talk about getting together on this? Or should we count on a third Bush term?



Who gave Hillary the self-destruct code?

Many things have brought me close to posting over the past few months and now I just want to take a moment of your time to express how I feel about my party…

I am a cubs fan and a liberal. What does it mean? That for some unknown reason the chemical makeup of my brain chooses to feel the sting of loss over the mindless choice of the powerhouse team or party. I like to think that this means I am thoughtful, but most likely just makes me sadistic. Occasionally there is a win for my team or my party…the rareness of which causes a stimulation of the pleasure center of my brain. Indeed, you say, he IS a wacko liberal! But there is a purpose for writing this.

The Democrats had been handed the White House by the bumbling incompetence of the Bush regime and the corporate-owned Republic congress. The Republic party served up a mess of presidential hopefuls that screamed “We want to lose!” It was seemingly in the bag.

Then along come the primary voters. Unable to make up their minds, they go back and forth between Hillary and Barack…and hand us a shovel with which Hillary is now digging the grave of the Democratic Party. If the party nominates a candidate who does not have the popular vote…they learned NOTHING in 2000. If Hillary continues to act like a Republic she will damage Obama to the point where he will not win. I think Hillary would be an excellent president…but if she is nominated I, along with many others, will be leaving the Democrats for dead.

Does it bother you when I use “Republic” rather than “Republican?” Does it sound as if I am an idiot? Now you now how it sounds when you say “Democrat party” rather than “Democratic party”.

Anyway…

I hope someone close to Hillary will point out to her that she can’t win the nomination fairly, and needs to drop out. I hope the voters of America are intelligent enough to realize that Obama is not and never has been a Muslim, that Reverend Wright is not running for president, and that Rush Limbaugh hates America and loathes freedom. I hope that on November 2nd I get to feel that spike of adrenaline that comes with winning, and continues with the hope of an America that makes a return to the values we had prior to 9/11.

Come on Democrats. Let’s win this one. America needs a change.

Oh, and a World Series featuring the Cubs would be appreciated as well.

But both seem like long shots at this point.

 



Predictions

Hillary Clinton will win the nomination of the Democratic party after a difficult primary season…Obama will accept the V/P slot. The filth thrown at Clinton/Obama will go far beyond the shameful swiftboat campaign of ’04. Misogyny? You bet. Thinly veiled racism? That’s on the menu for sure. You thought playing on fears of terrorism was out of style? Nope. Will Barack Obama be called a terrorist? Will Hillary Clinton be linked to terrorists? Sure. It will be revolting. Worst of all…many voters will believe it.

But the Democrats will win the White House after the failings of the Bush years come home to roost in 2008, and thanks in part to the independent campaign of Ron Paul, who will leave the Republican party, his die-hard supporters in tow. Could Bloomberg shake up the Republican race even more? I think so. Many Americans will be voting independent this year after the dismal performance of both parties…but it will have a far greater negative impact on the GOP.

The GOP will wake up from their haze of repeated failures to stop terrorism, gay people, and abortion (have they even tried, really?), and nominate John McCain. He will do very well with The Huck on board as V/P but ultimately lose due to his continued support for the Bush administration’s foriegn policy and the GOP’s other, more successful war: The War On The Middle Class.

Get ready for an ugly fight for power, the likes of which we have not seen before.



A little rusty and somewhat out of touch

That’s me. But I gotta say…

Our legislative Republicans have me baffled. They want everyone and anyone to be able to carry a concealed weapon, shoot first and think later. This bill is opposed by law enforcement and those burdened with common sense all across the state. Of course, Montanas Republican representatives would have you believe that they do this in the name of freedom…but then again…

They oppose voting. It seems that there is nothing more frightening to these politicians than long lines of voters. I can understand their trepidation after the dismal performance this session. But if you love freedom you gotta love voting, right?

Oh, and this same bunch wants to give my $400.00 property tax rebate to Wal Mart. Sure, I’ll save $47.00 on my property tax bill (until funding cuts force local taxes to increase) under their proposal…but Wal Mart will save hundreds of thousands. At least then they can pass on the savings to us, with merchandise formerly made in the USA but now made in China or Vietnam.

What is with this bunch?

And one more quick note: I watched Al Gore testify to congress about global warming. Twice. This man should be our next president. More on that later…



2008 warning shots

There is no time like the present to start talking about it. The elections of 2008 will probably be the nastiest and hardest fought…ever. Much of the Democrats hopes for 2008 lie in what they accomplish, or fail to accomplish, in the next 2 years. There is also the inability of the republican party to start acting conservative again.

We already have a host of Republicans stepping up for their shot at power over the free world (and the other parts of the world soon to be “free”).

The die-hard Bush supporter and flip-flopping Senator from Arizona: John McCain. How enjoyable it will be to listen as neo-con pundits back-pedal when he wins the party nomination. He has been blasted by every one of them as a librul in conservative clothing.

There is the no-name republican guy from somewhere that announced his candidacy prior to the mid-terms.

The lovely and talented Newt GinGrinch has written a new book and takes every opportunity to get some spotlight. The arcitect of the failed “republican revolution” and the “Contract with on America” is a nasty campaigner and mean-spirited politician. He will run on a conservative reformer platform (as will all of them, not a single sincere voice in the crowd). Sayeth Newt: “I am not ‘running’ for president. I am seeking to create a movement to win the future by offering a series of solutions so compelling that if the American people say I have to be president, it will happen.”

Then there is the former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani. “Thank God that George Bush is our president, and thank God that Dick Cheney, a man with his experience and his knowledge and his strength and his background, is our vice president.”

Sam BrownbackMitt Romney, and BILL FRIST are also said to be considering a run at the White House. What do these guys care about? Gay marriage! Assisted suicide! Flag Burning! As we all know, these things are foremost on our minds as we confront them constantly in our day to day lives.

With this field of contenders, expect more of the same…

Coming soon: The Godless terrorist loving blame America first tax and spend Democrats.
