Republican Convention: Drill, baby, drill


Why were all those delegates laughing every time someone mentioned that Obama was a “community organizer”? For people who are so anti-government, they sure like to disparage efforts of citizens to organize themselves in, as Dubya once called it, the “community-based community.” You know, Tocqueville and all that shit. (Update: see Christopher’s comment on this post for more about the hypocrisy of this. Also, an email from the Obama campaign this morning responds: “Community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies.”)

They kept chanting “drill, baby, drill.” Boy, it’s all about the sex with those people, isn’t it?


Giuliani: did you know that motherfucker Obama voted “present” in the Illinois state legislature? Oh, he must be stopped. He must be stopped.



Palin: “The American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of personal discovery.” Yes, we quite prefer presidents who never learn a fucking thing their entire time in office.


With jokes like this one, as told by Palin, those long Alaskan nights must just fly: “You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.” I’m going to have bad dreams tonight about pit bulls with lipstick, I know it.
