Just a little something humorous…
On CBS’s “60 Minutes” Thursday night, Republican strategist Steve Schmidt revealed some of the behind-the-scenes wrangling that went into Sarah Palin’s debate against then-Sen. Joe Biden.
…to borrow a line from Hootie.
I just couldn’t help myself…
um…what? I mean, this is some trite BS – and I’m not posting it to knock Palin – but instead to show what’s supposedly going on with the McCain camp.
But really – does O’Reilly want to get in her pants or what? Damn.
This is pretty funny, and also really stupid. She just seems to have no ability to talk to this dude – probably because he’s saying so much ridiculous nonsense – and comes off as if she wasn’t even listening. I mean – all the random crap this guy says is a little overwhelming maybe, but to not recognize that he gives the wrong name of the Canadian Prime Minister? That’s part of her foreign policy experience [Canada]! Maybe she knew from the beginning that something was up? Who knows.
This dude was actually amusing on SNL [even if the first skit wasn't very funny]. My favorite is the ‘sad grandpa’, and Tiney Fey ‘going rogue’.
For a minute there I remembered how much I used to like and respect this guy. Maybe he’ll accept some position in the Obama White House [which he should be offered, I think] and return to the McCain of 2000 – help get this place back on track. That’s probably just wishful thinking.
Really, this is one of those things thats just oh so ridiculous for so many reasons. First off, we shouldn’t even be talking about this, because it shouldn’t matter. I mean, she really didn’t even say much – just basically that if they don’t win that we won’t be seeing the last of Sarah Palin.
That said, this is a little bit like your favorite team talking about the trades they’re going to make in the post season – while playing in the championship game. A week before the election, and she finds it necessary to explain what’ll happen if McCain isn’t successful in his White House bid? We here at MNP just think that shit’s cold – and we’re Obama supporters.
Also, the irony here is just killing me. McCain picks Palin as his running mate, in order to stir up the base and hopefully lead to a Republican victory – essentially using her, as we all know this guy had no intention of picking her himself [Where's his buddy Lieberman at?]. So she rallies the base at the convention, gets the crowd chanting and pumping their fists…and we all fully expect her to fall back into the #2 position. But oh no, this shit has been all about her since then – so much so that it might as well be Palin/McCain, and supporters already have Palin 2012 signs. And now she’s making it known she’ll be around in 2012, essentially saying ‘thanks, but no thanks’ to McCain’s White House bid to nowhere. Wow. And I thought Romney was a snake for what he said about MA after being governor.
So Democrats, I hope you’re taking notes [and maybe TIVO-ing this mess] for the 2012 elections – because if Obama wins, she’s going to be jockeying for position in those Republican primaries. A point to exploit if she makes it to the top of the ticket? She couldn’t even be trusted by the McCain campaign – which pulled her from absolute obscurity and shoved her into the limelight. If she can’t even be trusted by the running mate that made her into a national figure, how can anyone trust her to be the President?
Obama admits that his ‘white half’ is having trouble with the idea of voting for a black man for President? Hilarious.
This here is why so many independents and democrats supported McCain on 2000 – because his head wasn’t lodged all the way up his own ass…
McCain 2000 should be brought to the present to debate McCain ’08 – and maybe team up with Obama to kick his own future-ass, and slap Palin.
Note: Yes, this rich white b*tch actually brings up slavery because her daddy has to pay taxes. Wow – poor form.
Even Chris Wallace and Fox News think McCain’s ‘Robo-calls’ campaign is ridiculously hypocritical [that, or this was a pathetic attempt to let McCain explain his way out of this BS - which failed.].
WALLACE: But Senator back, if I may, back in 2000 when you were the target of robo calls, you called these hate calls and you said–
MCCAIN: They were.
WALLACE: And you said the following: “I promise you I have never and will never have anything to do with that kind of political tactic.” Now you’ve hired the same guy who did the robocalls against you to, reportedly, to do the robocalls against Obama and the Republican Senator Susan Collins, the co-chair of your campaign in Maine, has asked you to stop the robocalls. Will you do that?
MCCAIN: Of course not. These are legitimate and truthful and they are far different than the phone calls that were made about my family and about certain aspects that — things that this is — this is dramatically different and either you haven’t — didn’t see those things in 2000.
WALLACE: No, I saw them.
MCCAIN: Or you don’t know the difference between that and what is a legitimate issue, and that is Senator Obama being truthful with the American people.
Is this nonsense almost over? Damn.
