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”.

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.

“The governor can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned…”

“I’m pissed off at that SOB on the second floor
(Governor Schweitzer) that thinks he’s trying to run the state like a dictator. What matters is your integrity.”

 

“So my message to the governor is: Stick it up your ass! Stick it up your ass!”

“I don’t give a shit,”

These are the words of your party, met with loud applause…

Vote Republican for more foul language and childish temper tantrums. Or Mikey will F**k you up.



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.



The MTSSA can kiss my ass, etc.

Tonight I was robocalled by the Montana Shooting Sports Association.

Last night I was push-polled by Burns supporters.

We are all sick of the ads.

But the MTSSA call really pissed me off. When I ran for office in ’04, I took the time to fill out their candidate questionaire. I did this because I am a sportsman, gun owner, and hunter. What rating did I get? An “F”.

You see, I don’t think folks should be allowed to carry concealed handguns into schools or courthouses. Is that what earned me an “F”? Or was it that I was running as a “D”?

Don’t know, don’t care. The MTSSA is not to be trusted. They are liars.

I don’t care what party you belong to. This election is about more than party allegiance. It is about our country. This isn’t baseball or football, where you stick with your team no matter how badly they are doing. This is our country, our way of life. I want to let the power brokers know who has the power. It’s us, the 35% who give enough of a damn about our country to vote.

The commercial says “Conrad Burns, what a character.” What a load of crap. Conrad Burns has sold out our state, sold out our values, lost sight of what the hell we sent him to Washington to do: REPRESENT US.

You want to vote Republican. I want to vote Democrat. But to vote for a candidate strictly because he or she belongs to your party of choice is irresponsible. It is giving up your voice. It is giving up on your country. I have voted for Republicans in the past, and will in the future. I vote for the candidate.

So if you are still undecided, please remember:

DON”T VOTE FOR A PARTY, VOTE FOR OUR COUNTRY! 



So I’m a jerk. So what?

Last night I attended a candidate forum put on by the League of Women Voters in Belgrade. I have no in-depth analysis for you, just some impressions.

First of all, I will piss off the Democrats by saying that if I lived in SD35, I would vote for Senator Gary Perry (R).  Why? I just like the guy. He seems to be a decent man not given to spouting off Republican talking points. I am not familiar with his voting record, so if he has done something outrageous, feel free to point it out. However I will always support the best person for the job, regardless of party affiliation.

Roger Koopman (R-HD70) is a blowhard bullshit artist who thinks the Earth is about 6,000 years old. Not only that, he voted against maintaining high water mark stream access, and fully funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program. He thinks parents ought to just make enough money to pay for insurance themselves. Roger, do you think that the moon is made of green cheese? Just wondering.

Jack Wells (R-HD69) thinks he is John friggen Wayne.

Loren Acton, who is running against Jack Wells, is a rocket scientist. Seriously. He has been to space. He opened by saying that we should be thinking seven generations ahead when legislating. Mr. Acton wants to make it honorable to be a politician, and I have no doubt that he could do it. He was by far the most impressive candidate in the forum.

The intrepid Renae Jones stepped up to take the place of the elusive Jackson Cyr, who has withdrawn from the race. She is opposing the Republican who currently represents HD67.

Scott Sales (R-HD68) wore a bolo tie.

His opponent Laura Obert seemed oddly out of place in this group. There is no doubt in my mind she would be a hard working legislator.

John Vincent quoted Ronald Reagan. Koopman or Vincent. Well, at least Vincent isn’t nuts.

The Democrats in the forum named their top priorities almost unanimously as healthcare and energy independence.

Republicans top priorities include guns and “fiscal responsiblity.”

A good time was had by all (except for that part where someone accused me of being a jerk). Remember, you can register to vote at your local courthouse up to and including election day.

Watch the ad “The Stakes” from the GOP here.

The GOP wants you to be terrified. Just like the terrorists.
