“The New York Times Is Hardly Ever Wrong” — Sarah Palin

Gosh.  And just last week, prompted to do so by by Katie Couric, she couldn’t even NAME a single newspapers she reads.  Amazing what modern technolopgy can do in the field of puppetry, isn’t it?  The whole quote:

“Well, I was reading my copy of today’s New York Times and I was interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago,” Ms. Palin said at the fund-raiser in Englewood, Colo. “Turns out one of Barack’s earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times, and they are hardly ever wrong, was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. — NYTImes

I added the italics.

She even seems to have her very own copy.  Amazing.

I read that same article, from start to finish.  Finally, I say to myself, the so-called MSM gets around to exposing this half-breed Muslim Marxist for the American hating shitheel he is, as the ‘Pub Publicity Machine has insisted from Day One, and as Sarah ImPalin has faithfully repeated.

But I am disappointed: the radical, bomb hurling Ayers I remember from the 60s was long gone by the time Obama met him: he had become a university professor sporting a PhD and an entirely new attitude.  As CNN summed it up:

But that article concluded that “the two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers, whom he has called ‘somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8.’ ”  CNN

Damn!  That’s not even as radical or potentially treasonous and anti-American as the ‘Pub candidate’s hubby, who parades around with the Alaskan Independence Party, seeking to secede from the union.  Can you make this work?  Elect a vice president whose spouse is actively engaged with a movement dedicated to overthrowing the federal government?  Blows my little mind.

But Wingnut Nation isn’t bothered by these minor inconsistencies, hence the new affront on Obama’s associations.  Do as they say, not as they do.

    take it from a wingnut, Ayers is not just some college professor with a radical past. He is still very much the same guy. . . unless you don’t think Chavez is radical.

  2. Squathole says:

    Ms C: I’m perfectly willing to believe that Ayers is “very much the same guy” — just point to me some compelling evidence. Shrill denunciations of “community organizing” and accusations of illegal activities from 35- years ago aren’t enough. Furthermore, guilt by association never, ever impresses me. Obama’s connection with him, based on foundation-related activities to improve education, sounds to me like a good thing from start to finish.

    Far more amusing is WinkWink Palin’s breezy, hare-brained remark about the NY Times, which all of a saudden she discovers and quotes with confidence. Read the article, Sarah: there’s nothing to build a case on.

    And the NY Times is hardly ever wrong. She says so herself.

    Ms C — How can you or any other reasonable person take this candidacy seriously?

  3. Living Will says:

    In the space of a week, goes from not knowing what newspapers or magazines she reads to quoting “her copy” of the New York Times. Does the McCain/Palin campaign take ALL of America to be as gullible and stupid as she is?

    Squathole: you were right a while back when you called her the new Reagan. Clueless, obedient, and willing to say whatever they write for her, and completely shameless about it. The perfect politician.

  4. Piles says:

    Desperation on their part. They’re getting battered in the polls, so they’re trying to hurl shit to see what will stick. Classic Republican campaign tactics.

  5. Red White & Blue says:

    Ayers was a terrorist. He’s linked to several incidents of bombings that killed people, including police officers. While he was tossing bombs at banks, John McCain was being tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

    The problem with you America-hating liberals is you’ll overlook something this wrong and evil if it suits your greater political agenda. That’s digusting hypocrisy, and it’s why everybody hates you, and why you’ll lose in November.

  6. Joe Balls says:

    Let’s say you’re right about who Ayers is (or was), Red White & Blue. What’s that got to do with Obama vs McCain for President of the United States in 2008? That’s the whole point, and all this irrelevant character assasination just blurs the issues.

  7. Ruh Roh says:

    Guess it’s time for Obama’s people to start dropping the name “Keating Five.” If we’re going to play dirty, that is, and stop talking about issues.

    Market’s down below 10,000, people dying in Iraq, and John McCain’s campaign wants to talk about ancient history.

    BTW — was Ayers ever actually convicted of anything?

  8. dAN qUAYLE says:

    Sarah Plain will make a terrific VP. As far as I can see, her only weakness is that she doesn’t golf. But she’ll have plenty of time and opportunity. I sure did!

  9. melatoca says:

    More shady characters in Obama’s past pop up day by day. Google “Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour”. Obama’s Columbia University (liberal university) dissertation is sealed from public view I wonder why? If he is about change why all the shadiness and deception about his past.

  10. Beardsley says:

    Melatoca: Every time this subject comes up, Wingnut Nation looks more desperate than the time before. First of all, there is no “Obama dissertation” sealed from public view. He’s not a PhD and never wrote one. The closest thing is a paper he wrote as a “senior thesis” on the Russian/American arms reduction agreement which reportedly contained nothing controversial. Or (probably) interesting, if I may editorialize.

    As for any guilt by association, such as the character you ask us to google, it’s a hell of a stretch. There’s absolutely nothing relevant or current. Anybody with Obama’s background and academic experience is going to meet a lot of diverse political and cultural figures. Why isn’t it relevant to your twisted logic than he spent time with conservative economist Milton Friedman, too?

    Are you folks so beat up by the facts and scared of the future that you can’t argue your candidate’s strengths on the issues?

  11. Diesel Fitter says:

    Yeah! I read the the half breed commie raghead doesn’t pay his paperboy on time, either! No way I vote for a guy who doesn’t pay his paperboy on time.

    And it’s true. I read it on a blog.

  12. Hose B says:

    As long as we’re dredging up the past, has anybody speculated that maybe the time McCain spent as a POW caused him to go fucking crazy? And that’s why he says what he says, does what he does, and picked Sarah Palin for a running mate? Just askin.

  13. Anonymous says:


    I’ll tell you what … I PRAY you are right. Time will tell.

  14. Ms Calabaza says:

    Ooops, sorry … that was me. I’m still at work…

  15. CORGIGUY says:

    Wingnuts believe green is purple and will convince you they know it is and you’re an idiot for not seeing it. they believe the fundamentals of the economy were strong two weeks ago and anybody disputing that was a gloom and doomer.

    Now Obama is a terrorist, i can’t wait till they link him up with hittler and accuse him of plotting the holocaust.

    Let’s face it McCain is looking more and more like an angry, desperate old man and neither of his ‘trophy’ partners can dig him out of the hole he now finds himself in.

  16. ya’gotta’guessit says:

    Ha, ha.

    Obama is a disingenuous race-trader, who made his political hay in that bastion of ethics, Chicago – rubbing elbows with the loathsome Ayers, while sitting prominently in the Reverend Wright’s Church of Love, Forgiveness & Redemption. Whatever it took.

    And as “Ruh Roh” undoubtedly knows, Ayers has never been convicted, but *has* admitted to having no regret “at setting bombs”.

    This puke served Obama’s purpose at some point, and the Candidate easily dismisses the significance of Ayers’ actions as having taken place “when I was 8 years old”, or some such shit.

    And Squats, old pal…”foundation-related activities to improve education” just sounds like a money-furnace.

  17. Lazlo Toth says:

    Predictions are that tonight the candidates start the mudslinging in earnest. This is what’s called a zero-sum game. Show me a successful, powerful politician at ANY level whatsoever, and I’ll show you a history of buddying up with crooks, sleeze, back-stabbers, and lowlives. It’s the nature of the beast. You don’t get anywhere in that game staying clean and playing straight.

    So singling out Obama’s background in Chicago as something especially loathsome, as is the comment above, doesn’t do much for me. Look at McCain’s history with gamblers and the Indian gambling industry. Look at Palin’s dealings with the cute little powermongers in Wasilla. Think Biden made it through Delaware without backroom meetings in the corporate basements? Grow up.

    Who’s the best candidate to fix the broken economy, end the war, and restore credibility around the world? Make your decisions on issues that matter, not this crap.

    Me, I’m leaning toward Bob Barr.

  18. ya’gotta’guessit says:

    Sure, sure…everyone has feet of clay.

    But an unwillingness to draw a line, somewhere – that’s just unacceptable.

    Obama’s decision to associate with a bomb-maker (A BOMB MAKER!) to serve his political purpose is vile.

    His choice to debase his own grandmother (you know, the woman who raised him…) with his “Typical White person” remark goes straight to the man’s soul.

    And allowing his surrogates to savage the Clintons on RACE was apalling.

    Look, I get it – everyone hates Bush, McCain is an old guy who doesn’t use email, and people love magic shows.

    But Obama’s shit truly does stink. It stinks badly. And there’s a huge pile of it.
