    Sarah Palin Invited to Join Pussycat Dolls

    By kyle | October 10, 2008

    If this whole veep thing doesn’t work out, she’ll be fine. (H/t: Conservative Grapevine.) Elsewhere, a blogger points out that news photographers love to take pictures of Palin rallies from behind the candidate’s legs. Were a liberal woman treated this way, it would of course be denounced as reductionist and sexist to define a candidate by her gams. But of course you couldn’t take a picture that revealed Hillary Clinton’s legs, which to the relief of all Americans are invariably cloaked in yards of pantsuit. UPDATE: Dirty Harry has the scoop: Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, Oct. 25.

      Looks without brains are a turnoff for me, and Sarah Palin is as dumb as a doorknob, with the wit of a wooden plank and the intellect of an insect. That she is also a lying, corrupt racist and fearmonger who gets her jollies killing animals hardly adds to her charms. She’s strictly for guys who like “sexy librarian” hookers and meatheaded men who are threatened by women able to form coherent sentences.

      Curious where you get that she’s racist. Some of the papers in the UK were going after her for having too close of a relationship with a radical Kenyan minister…seems like odd company for a racist. So are there any grounds to your opinions of her or is this just you regurgitating what you have been told is your opinion?

      Where do we get she’s a racist?

      From her own mouth! Have you been listening to her this last week? You dont think she’s pandering to racist tendencies within her own base thereby making her a racist as well? Talk about guilt by association.

      And beyond everything that Hunter named you can also add “guilty of ethics violations and abuse of power” to her resume. The committe was made up of 10 Republicans and 4 Dems to let you know so you dont work yourself up into a lather that this is a conspiracy by democrats. Plus her charges of Wooten tasering a 10 year old as well as the supposed death threats have turned out to be bogus.

      Palin, from the beginning, has only been really hungry for the job of VP and not in helping “Joe Six Pack” or “Hockey Moms” like she claims. She has been, and always will be, a cheap gimmick put together by the GOP to lure away the angry backwoods white woman vote that might have went for Hillary Clinton. I think the youtube clips of the Ohio rally testifies to that.

      Using the logic that she cant be a racist because she knows an African witchdoctor or happens to have a gay friend(imaginary) is the same as saying Michelle Malkin isnt a racist because she’s Phillipino. They are both racists, and, on top of that, pathological liars.

      You are just quoting the AP bozo saying it had racist overtones. Absolutely nothing she said was even remotely racist or had racial tension to it. Disagreeing with a black man does not make you least not until we get some of those lovely European style “hate speech” laws. If you have anything resembling a specific I invite you, no beg you to prove me wrong.

      As for the ethics thing I don’t care… at all. Put her “ethics flap” next to the to numerous to count Obama ones. How do you feel about funneling $800,000 to acorn to buy fraudelent votes? 4,000 dead people in Houston registered to vote Democrat this year? How about Obama not only used to work as an employee of Acorn but was their attorney in the mid 90’s in a class action suit? Still want to compare dirty laundry I got a lot more?

      Also please stop obsessing over Michelle Malkin and Sarah Palin. Are you a sexist or something? You have real problems with women in, or attempting to assume power Donnie. Maybe we should devote some time to this.
