Sarah get your gun

you are going to need it for that shotgun wedding coming up.

I know you all didn't think I was finished with the beauty queen did you? Sorry, I have quite a bit more to say. Especially given the fact that these lunatics on the right have actually deluded themselves into thinking that this is a viable VP pick. Ah, I hate to break it to you my republican friends, but this pick is border line laughable.

Now I really don't want to go there with Bristol, after all, she is still a teenager.... but I am afraid I must. Now poor little Bristol is pregnant with child. A nd Mommy and Daddy are trying so hard to spin this as a good thing. S ee folks, when little middle class conservative white girls get knocked up, it a beautiful thing. It's all planned to bring a precious life into the world. But when poor little inner city girls, from single parent homes, get knocked up, it's a bad thing. Because they are making poor choices and their little baby isn't as precious. Ah field why are you being so hard on little Bristol?

Because little Bristol's mama is a family values conservative who preaches abstinence only sex education in schools. And because her mama has now gone and declared that the poor child is engaged to the unborn child's father, at SEVENTEEN! Just imagine, this poor child is being forced to marry some boy who she gave some, because her fucking mother wants to impress her conservative friends, and not jeopardize her chances any further of becoming VP. --And they say us left wingers are heartless. ---Thanks to this soulless, republican, freak; her seventeen year old daughter has to stand the scrutiny of an entire country, as she goes through an unwanted pregnancy. Nice. Talk about "family values". "Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family." No beauty queen, if you really loved your daughter; when Mr. Morton came knocking, you would have said no. But you didn't. It's much more important for you to get a national profile in order to spread your far right grotesque beliefs, than to protect your daughter from crazy ass left wing bloggers, like the field Negro. Sorry Bristol, your mama don't care about you, so why should I? Your mama is more concerned about getting a team of lawyers up to Alaska (as much as ten I hear) to defend her against ethics violations charges. Good luck with that beauty queen, we should get the results of the investigation at the end of October, just in time for you know what. As if I didn't have reason enough to despise this woman, costing me two extra trips to the gym every week is making her enemy numero uno in the field's book.

And finally, can we all get a collection going to pay off anyone who was around when this woman gave birth to baby Trig? I mean honestly; someone had to have been there besides her doctor. I just read in my local paper that the beauty queen was hustling through snowy streets in high heels in February when she was allegedly seven months pregnant. And that when she announced that she was seven months pregnant even her closest staffers were surprised. All the time her daughter was safely sequestered with ahem ahem, mono. This wasn't published on some left wing blog, this was published in the Philadelphia Daily News, and that's as main stream as it gets. Come on now. As a friend of mine used to say: "I might have been born yesterday, but I stayed up all night." And the more I think about this story, the more my bullshit alarm goes off.

But that's enough for one day. I am going to leave the beauty queen alone for now. But a few things are still on my mind: like how she and her hubby joined a group that wanted to break off from A-merry-ca, and how she tried the good collie weed but didn't like it, and.....oh lawd, let me stop now, my fingers are getting tired.

**That pic was stolen from ArtMaggot. Well not really stolen, Art pretty much gave me carte blanche with his stuff** :)

Someone needs to ask the question of Mr. McCain; Is the reason you (or your campaign staff) picked Sarah Palin because she is a born again Christian and you are trying desparately to appeal to these people? Because that is about the only thing this woman has to offer.

And the follow up question has to be, like Mr. Bush do you disagree with the separation of church and state?

Kellybelle said...

Thank you! I'm glad you said it. Single unwed teens of color are a burden on society, but Bristol is a shining example of family values? Hell no.

I couldn't BELIEVE how the newspapers were fawning over how beautiful Bristol is and how handsome Levi is and how in love they both are. The same right wing nuts who got all self-righteous over Jamie Lynn Spears and Murphy Brown are hypocrites when it comes to Bristol.

And no, Bristol is not off limits. McCandy wants to campaign on family values, let's see the results of her family values. Because if it comes out that teens can't be controlled regardless of how you raise them, conseratives have to take a long hard look at themselves.

Oh, and let's take a look at Palin's pastors. Looks like she's been sitting in a church for 20 years listening to crazy preaching, too.

Oh, and what about her connections to the Alaska Independence Party where someone said something to the tune of Damn America, Alaska first.

Arrrrrrrrrgh! I can't breathe!

Good Blog Field, looking forward to the breakaway, I voted for it once while living in Alaska. Its on the ballet every 10 years and in the state constitution.

And the more I think about this story, the more my bullshit alarm goes off.

Are you suggesting that Bristol, who is five months pregnant, gave birth to Trig five months ago?


Do you think the girl has two uteruses? (uterusii?)

Christopher said...

Where's McCandy?

No one has seen her in days, and what I'm hearing is, the mainstream media is getting mighty angry what with being told that Sarah "Immaculate Conception" Palin is "unavailable to speak to the media."

Hmmmm. Unavailable to speak to the media?

Very odd. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we turn on our TVs real soon, only to learn McCandy had taken her name out of contention to be the Old Coot's running mate.

Mono has a 1 to 2 week rest period with meds not indicated. Essentially a vacation from school. Why did she need eight months? Check out the Intertube pics of the times in question. Even though I am old enough to recall girls not having 'mufin tops', she has a protruding abdomen...very similar to the ones found in Phillydelphia.

After seeing the pic of babydaddy, I see why doughy white girl took up with him. He's the dream date of every cracker trash 12 yo. The quotes attributed to his serene holeness complete the visualization. Most women outgrow him by 14...18 at the latest.

Timeline, jerkwad parents, pics that could not be scrubbed from the Intertubes, and the way she cuddles her "brother" all lead to babymama.

What about redneck Levi Johnston? All he wanted was to be a redneck who likes to snowboard and ride dirt bikes. Of course, not a goal I or anyone else commenting would aspire to, but damn it's a goal none the less. He did not ask for this, and now they are making board on a plane to meet with the Palin family on he campaign trial. That's right everybody, Levi may be on the stage at the Republican convention. Does this remind anyone of Deliverance?

I would not have mentioned anything about the fantastic and remarkable story about Palin water breaking Dallas and proceeds to deliver a speech then get on a plane to Alaska than drive over to Parkland Hospital where the neonatal unit is the most technically advanced and one of the best in country. What really gets me is that her husband does not stop from getting on the plane. How in the world can you consider yourself pro-life when make such a risky decision to fly while in labor expected to have a premature birth where either you, baby or both you die? If that does not top it off, Palin returned to work three days after giving birth. I think that is incredulous, and find the story my grandmother told me about the Pastor who was led by ghosts and found money buried outside of the house is more credible than I am the supermom who gave birth.

Each day as the convention goes on, you just find out more information about Palin. If that is true about the Alaska Independence Party, that does border on the lines of being anarchist, can everybody Timothy McVeigh.

black magic woman said...

If Trig was indeed born 5 months ago AND Bristol is indeed 5 months pregnant, it seems pretty obvious that she could not have given birth to Trig.

However, hospital records online welcoming new babies do not list Trig at all and Bristol was out of high school for MONTHS.

What if Bristol isn't 5 months along but more like 3 or 4 and Trig was born in March?

IMO, something is shady about Trig's birth and we haven't learned the full truth. Sarah Palin acted VERY strangely given that she knew her child had down syndrome and she risked losing the baby given how long she waited for medical treatment.

If it all went down as she said, then I really do question her judgment as a human being.

It's been a long time since I saw that movie, but I'm pretty sure that there was only one sex scene and no one involved was cabable of getting pregnant.

Anonymous said...


I only reference the movie in terms of redneck culture, and not necessarily the sexual connotation. Although, you never Levi and Bristol maybe first cousins. I wouldn't be surprised. Perhaps I should have mentioned Picket Fences, I do not know if anyone ever watch the series other than me.

My partner swears he saw the entire Palin clan on Jerry Springer one morning.

Like the saying goes,

You might be a redneck if you own a homemade fur coat.

McCandy owns three.

Francis Holland said...

The ethics report on the beauty queen will NOT be released before the election, just as the report on Bush's Iraq activities was sequestered until after the 2004 election. You can bet on it. We will NOT get that ethics report before the election wherein the report would make the most difference.

Does it strike anyone as ironic that McCain chose a beauty queen for his V.P. It seems totally in character for him, since he dumped his first (disabled) wife for a beauty queen.

Now don't think that just because he beauty queen V.P. is laughable that she is unelectable. Remember Dan Quayle, who couldn't spell "potatoe"? The extreme right likes this lady, they can probably even relate to the fact that her daughter got pregnant rather than commit the sin of obtaining sex contraceptive education and using birth control.

Now the daughter, Bristol and her sex partner will do what people did three generations ago: they'll get married, whether the like it or not, for the good of the Republican Party.

Will the marriage take place before the election, or never take place at all. I'd bet on the latter.

Anonymous said...


I know what you meant, I was mocking you. It's not that I don't pity young Levi, but the way I figure it, if he didn't want to do the time, he shouldn't have done the crime. Now he has to face spending the rest of his life with a child, a decent looking wife with large breasts and well connected in-laws who can help him find a good job.

Wait, wait a minute. I don't pity him at all. That's a pretty good return on investment for five minutes of work.

EzMun said...

Field your b.s. meter is not the only one that's going off here. Her daughter supposedly didn't return to school after Christmas break according to the Assistant Principal. No reason given to him.

So am I to believe that the parents pulled her out three months BEfore she "allegedly" got pregnant? Yeah right. And all of the pics that I've seen, including the video that Field discussed with her in the high heels, showed that she clearly wasn't anywhere near pregnant at the (~7.5 months stage).

NOne of this stuff being said by Palin's camp is believeable. None of it! I'm sure the blogosphere will eventually get to the bottom of this, because obviously mainstream media isn't doing any real journalism these days.

Field, thanks for keeping the heat on Palin.

And we we get an APB on McCain's adopted daughter? CPL did a great piece on JJP on her lack of visibility... don't want to give the impression that they don't value her brown self less than their paler sister right? Or do they?

Javier said...

I've been doing a LOT of reading on all things Palin all over the place. I've heard many different opinions on the woman ranging from her experience to whether or not Bristol is a two-time mom before the age of 18. The more I think about it the more it strikes me that perhaps this is exactly what John McCain needed: a distraction. Everyone can agree that this woman is unfit to serve in anywhere but Alaska. Sounds like there is more going on up there than anybody would have suspected down here in the lower 48. But lets be honest, who really benefits by having the MSM and everybody left of center focusing on this woman's effed up family. McCain's made his choice; let him live or die by it. I think we'd all be better off focusing on trouncing McCain/Palin on the issues that of true importance to America. We all know this VP pick was politically motivated on many levels. Whether it is to appeal to evangelicals or bitter Hillary supporters it doesn't matter. The more hatred/attention this woman's family situation is shown the less focus is placed on her qualifications and on where she stands on the issues. Let's not forget that this election is about Barack Obama becoming the next POTUS (Well at least for me it is. Sorry Field!). Let's keep it about what he stands for and what McCain does not: seeing this country return to a place of leadership, respect and responsibility in the world.

"Wait, wait a minute. I don't pity him at all. That's a pretty good return on investment for five minutes of work."

FIVE MINUTES? incognomen WTF? Lord I am glad Mrs. Field doesn't read this blog :)

hennasplace, I saw some brothers in the band as well. Gotta have the black folks playing the music :)

j, I don'think it's working. Gallop has the "O" man at 50% for the first time in their tracking polls. Some distractions can be just too much.

I honestly don't think most A-merry-cans who aren't fire breathing red state lunatics want this woman as their VP. And since the independent vote is crucial, it doesn't look good for Mr. Morton.

"No one has seen her in days, and what I'm hearing is, the mainstream media is getting mighty angry what with being told that Sarah "Immaculate Conception" Palin is "unavailable to speak to the media."

Hmmmm. Unavailable to speak to the media?"

Christopher, where do you think she is hiding? In one of Mr. Morton's homes maybe?

"What if Bristol isn't 5 months along but more like 3 or 4 and Trig was born in March?"

Hmmmm, the plot thickens.

Yes Francis, Mr. Morton does love the beauty queens.

west coast story said...

j: I am with you but the allure of this baby mama "discussion" is too juicy for people to let go. I agree, it is a distraction that benefits Mc. While the left looks like bullies ganging up on a 17-year old girl who never asked to be put in the middle of this mess, the troopergate scandal, her membership in an anti-statehood organization, and the other issues are not being discussed.

This is really just gossip. My goodness, I suspect someone will soon be posting she got pregnant by alien abduction. You know because homes are not in foreclosure, banks are not failing, the dollar isn't worth spit, soldiers are dying in the MIddle East, but dad gum it, who does that baby really belong to? This is like a bad episode of Sanford and Son. Seriously.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Oh, but her involvement in those scandals are being discussed left and right. Go check out Huffington Post for today. Every single scandal she is involved in is plastered all over the front page and second page. So much, until, it has overshadowed the RNC convention.

Granny was serious, people are talking about her involvement in all of the shady matters. Mrs. Palin is the talk of the nation right about now.

Anonymous said...

7:54 I totally agree. I believe after it was said he met her once, and she fould out within 24 hrs she was picked that he choose her because of her beauty queen status. I have to give it to him Cindy McCain is pretty as well as "beauty queen." Both can speak at a drop of a hat because they have been trained on the circuit. However I think he didn't look deep enough at her vaules and family life. If he wanted Hillary supporters he should have chosen a female with grown educated children, and a"clean" husband.

8:13 Obama is handling this excellently let your enemies destroy themselves. His next pick will proabably will be his first choice which was Joseph Liberman. Why did the republicans not want him?

field negro said...

WCS, I hear you, but these seamingly juicy scandals speak to something else about Morton and his judgment, as well as the hypocrisy of the republican party.

But we haven't forgotten the 27 million pork she secured, or her support for the highway to nowhere. Her little ethics issue with her former brother in law, her lack of basic knowledge of the Constitution. And not to mention her far out views on things like abortion, and evolution being taught in public schools. And on and on.

Trust me, there is more than enough there. We are just warming up.

More and more reports keep popping up about this woman. There is no way she was vetted.

There are so many reports now... (various scandals) that I cannot keep up.

Apparently she is connected with Abramoff lobbyists... she's also connected with the same donors that her mentor Ted Stevens was connected with. Things keep piling up.

Then there is the secession group story (the MSM isn't really tackling this one).

Then there is the Mike Wooten story.

There are a few others as well... I have lost track.

Whenever I get ready to post on one story... two more surface.

The real lesson from all of this is that McSenile doesn't have the judgment to be in the White House.

And as far as the Pregnancy is concerned, there are always double standards for hypocrites, especially ultra conservative Christian hypocrites. And the media reads from their script... creating the double standard for the wider society.

It didn't take long for the MSM to go along with the positive spin campaign. One report proported to show voters who were not bothered by the double standard... with most saying "this makes the Palin's more like ordinary folks.... it makes them even more appealing if you ask me". (obviously an attempt by big media to help shape the wider public opinion).


Republicans/Religious Conservatives are the masters of spin.

Never mind the Philadelphia Daily News. Keep your eyes on the National Enquirer in the supermarket checkout lane. That paper smells money in scandal the way sharks smell blood in water, & there might be riches in The Palin Family that make the Edwards Family chump change.

Excellent post.. not much else I can say since you broke it down quite well.

Bottom line, even if baby boy does belong to Sarah which is doubtful because as a 2 time Mama, I can tell you the idea of sitting on a plane for hours after my water broke simply does not compute. Miss Thang clearly does not care much about her family, so like you I wanna know whose family values does she really care.

By the way after doing some reading up on her former church, they make Rev Wright sound like a appetizer.

Then again as I said on on own blog maybe McNasty is looking for some side action from his ice queen and that's really whay he picked ole Sarah.

Anonymous said...

I certainly agree that if Bristol were African American or living in an inner city the republicans would be asking who is going to pay for this baby? The refusal to admit this is hypocrisy.

I must however say that I take issue with your continual referral to Palin as beauty queen. It is demeaning and sexist. Yes indeed she was runner up in Miss Alaska but this is how she paid for her college education. She did not ascend from on high. For Palin beauty queen was a means to an end and you should acknowledge that rather than treating it with derision. I am not a Palin supporter by any stretch of the imagination and believe the woman to be a colluder of the worst sort, however critiquing her using sexist language is simply unacceptable, it demeans all women.

OMG field...that pic says it all doesn't it!!!

Now all of a sudden the views seem to be changing right before our eyes about teenage pregnanc. I feel sorry for the daughter...but her mama put her out on front street for public consumption.. so oh well.

Lady Grey said...

Well, attention is certainly being deflected from daughter number two, Willow, who likewise has, at least in many of the recent photos, a mid-pregnancy looking tummy, rather than a sports jock figure. I'm sure it is only a question of time before someone looks into that. It would certainly explain a lot. I'm getting tired of reading about some other mother's daughters' sex lives when I am looking for national news.

Well known that teen girls who are angry with their mothers frequently use pregnancy, not contraception, to get back at them and to gain both attention and independence from them.

Not too different from McCain, by chosing her and thumbing his nose at the Republican establishment, unless it was Rove's strategic idea. Indeed, truly a judgement call, but certainly profoundly poor judgement, raising even more questions about McCain's decision making abilities.

There are certainly more complex domestic and global issues that require subtlety, sensitivity, judgement, and intelligence.

Might want to know more about the abrogation of constitutional rights of reporters covering the RNC who were jailed in Minneapolis/St. Paul, the proposed executive order limiting the ability of unions to organize by card vote, the military posturing in the former Soviet Republics, and the escalatory rhetoric re Iran. Things like that.

I'm terrified of women and men who think that parenthood is the main education needed by a president. Parenting focuses on one's own child's welfare, not the welfare of others. And we have a lot of others' whose well being needs addressing.

This mom has experience? So a documented history of manipulation is all you need to break into political life and run a country?

We already have suffered a president who disregards the constitution, thinks himself above the law, and who governs for the few.

Perhaps that's OK in Alaska, but imposing the Palin dysfunctional family tradition as a model of American governance isn't the change I am looking for.

Anonymous said...

Well, she wasn't really a beauty queen. She only won Miss Congeniality--the consolation prize reserved for the pageant sluts. But that's just a technicality. I personally think her kids should be off limits, but the stench of hypocrisy is so high here, it cannot be ignored. Palin promotes abstinence only education and creationism eductaion in the public schools. Obviously, her daughter learned about the birds and the bees fron the streets (do they have streets in Alaska?). She could have benefited from sex education that included instruction on the use of condoms. I guess the whole abstinence lesson went over her head. But it runs in the family. Momma Palin got married to her teenage sweetheart and gave birth 8 months later. Oops.

This should be fun. You know, since Bush has done such a good job so far....

I think a couple of things are going on:

2. she's busy with the vetting team provided by McCain's lawyers and the RNC lawyers. What they should have done six months and didn't.

I still think McCandy will be gone by Halloween. She's radioactive and even dumb-fuck Repugs are getting worried about the next skeleton in her closet.

Whelp, you have really inspired me with your two comments. Yup, I was ready to stop talking about Mrs. Palin's little promiscuous daughter and go into the other big scandals hanging over Mrs. Second Runner Up Congeniality. However, you've inspired me to really let it rip now concerning Mrs. Palin's promiscuous family.

You're right numbers don't lie, so could you explain to me why black and white are practically a tie in that department?

Spot on Fieldy!

as a sidebar to your perspective...

The so-called "librul" media is treating all of this juicy shit with kid gloves..have you seen any of the reporting from CNN, MSNBC?..we all know Faux News is a tool of the right-wing so I expect as much from those assholes.

We also know if this was Malia Obama...there would be an evisceration of the Obama campaign AND his family...values. So fuck all that shit about Saint Sarah's little Bristol-babygate story being off limits...(sorry O'man but to me, you need bigger nuts and start tearing McInsane a new one about his lack of character, discretion and blatant fuckin' HYPOCRISY!)

I did see Campbell Brown (CNN?) take that lil' bitch Tucker Bounds to task about Saint Sarah's "experience" to take over if McInsane kicks the bucket. She also pointed out how this could backfire as they've diminished their cred to criticize Obama about his purported lack of experience.

I watched Democracy Now's online interviews with folks attending the RNC and it was very scary. To see and hear how many American are so dumbed-down...like sheep bleating the same ole regurgitated garbage...blinded by apostate religion and repug talkin points about abortion and family values..it's really scary ya'll!

Now, I admit, I'm no big fan of Obama or McInsane...and this is because I believe they're bought and paid for like most politicians. And ya'll Obamaholics don't get pissy at me for expressing my thoughts...but a research of who's behind the O'man's scene, the "shadowmen" (corporate, think-tank and intelligentsia) who support and fund O'man should cause critical thinking sensors to go a lil haywire. I heard this comment made by George Will regarding this presidential race. He basically said that politics (this presidential campaign...) is just a choice between which "elites" you want to ruled by...how true a comment ever spoken by a repugnicant journa-hack!

I know alot of you will crow about me wasting my vote, that we are looking at a real "historic" possibility of the first black man being elected...but I'll be voting for a true fighter for all people...one who truly stands for reforming the status quo, equality, justice and peace:

Cynthia McKinney.

Now I know that it's just a pipe dream to see a strong Black woman like my own mama to run this mo-fo ...but you know what, I'm going with my conscience on this one.

I wonder if maybe she wasn't a Harriet Miers from the start. Now for the next 50 years, anytime the GOP is accused of sexism, they can point to Sarah Palin's nomination for VP. Not very kind of McSame to throw her under the bus like this, but all's fair in war and politics.

I blogged about the same thing. We had a teenage pregnancy in my family and as my culture goes people are extremely conservative. The norm is to disown the child. Its traumatic to any family that believes in traditional values. To think that this woman would put that crisis aside and her traumatized daughter and accept to run for office is unbelievable. She basically has publically humiliated her further. Speak of family values.

BREAKING NEWS: McKeating names three new cabinet members:


Sec. of State: Earl J. Poteet


Earl J. Poteet has nearly 20 years of experience handling negotiations in border town bars. Using a wide array of diplomatic skills, including slowly speaking English in a loud voice, pounding on the bar while screaming "I'm an American, damn it!" and flicking his tongue in and out rapidly between his lips while winking, Mr. Poteet has successfully negotiated thousands of bar tab disputes and quasi-romantic rendezvous.

"I wonder if maybe she wasn't a Harriet Miers from the start. Now for the next 50 years, anytime the GOP is accused of sexism, they can point to Sarah Palin's nomination for VP. Not very kind of McSame to throw her under the bus like this, but all's fair in war and politics."

Interesting point. Maybe they knew all along that she wouldn't past the smell test. But at least they can say;hey, we tried to put a woman on the ticket.

renee, I feel you about the beauty queen reference. But believe me, it's not sexism on my part. I am an equal opportunity asshole.If you will recall, I called John Edwards "BRECK BOY" for some time before he left the national stage. No one complained about that because they knew that the name fit. Same here. (Although as someone above mentioned, she was a runner-up)So don't take it personal, I try to be equally offensive to everybody.

I'm worried.

Palin has energized a base that was going to stay home. As a country we dislike really smart people. We like "regular folks." Rove is playing to that crowd. The more the undereducated Palin is attacked the more sympathy she gets. grrr.

I really hope the swing voters that are on the fence look at the issues and don't fall for this BS.

Tammy said...

Field, I agree with everything you said. However, it's not just about race, though in this case. It's all about the Republicans and their spin. Remember when Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant? Rich white girl, single parent. People questioned her mother's values too. In fact, she stopped her book on being a 'good parent' as I recall. (Matter a fact, considering the source, she probably should have).

Point is, while you have a case, in this particular instance, this is ALL about the Republicans and how they can cover McCain's tracks.

It's the same old sh*t with these crackers. They lie and hope nobody notices that they graduated from 'Graterford University'. Palin was chosen for her political purity. On all of the points important to radical facists, she was 100%. Who cares if babymama has two sprats by a jockhole? Who worries about abuse of office? Palin will allow the wingnut welfare train to keep running, which is dammned necessary to the uncredentialed and incompetent.

Field, there is this HIPAA thing that will end, totally, your medical career if you speak to a patient's history and treatment. It will get you fired and blacklist you from any job that pays a living wage. So, if I was BabyDoc or RNursie, there is absolutely now f- way I would say anything without a written and notarized waiver. Especially with Vindictive Bitch being the patient.

Rewarding the courtiers is the way of the AristoRepublican Party. Harriet was loyal and loyal and submissive like a dog. Why not reward her with a position?

Joe "Traitor" Lieberman? We now see how Jews could Quisling their own to the camps. Not to stave off their own trip to Buchenwald, but to cozy up to the evil. Creepy.

Palin is a religio-crazy. Jockhole hubby, ratshit hair, and a sense of Entitlement that far exceeds the usual 'Merican fantasy are all part and parcel of the Jeebus Save Me crowd. Not evil, but certainly not meeting minimum standards for adult behavior.

This is a wild speculation, but I wonder if the Republicans set all this up. It seems that McCain & the RNC knew the Palin family's situation full well before choosing her. Could it be that they set this up as bait for the newspapers and bloggers?

I tend to think that some think tank behind the RNC anticipated all this. Do you not anticipate questions that a prosecutor in court will ask?

I do not think that McCain threw Palin and her family under a bus. I tend to think she expects all this - as necessary stepping stone to power. I suspect Palin herself prepared her family for this ride.

Newscasters are already quoting criticisms from blogs and newspapers and framing them as an "assault from the left". Palin's silence is very curious too.

Perhaps I am giving the RNC too much credit, but I cannot help but think they made this chess move and anticipated all these other moves.

I think more surprises are yet to come from the RNC.

Anonymous said...

Hey Field -
I think this may be more of a class issue and less of a race one. If a teen whose family has money gets knocked up, she's got her family to bail her out. Then the young mother/father get married and look like responsible parents.

A poor teen gets pregnant? She doesn't have the money safety net. So she looks to the government (and rightly so). And then, of course, she looks like an unfit nitwit who's mooching off everyone else's money.

Of course, the racial undertones will exist with all class issues.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Granny was thinking about something. They choose Palin because she is a woman, and it's a little hard for a man to attack a woman without being called a sexist. That is what they are trying to label Obama as. Already they are throwing that out there. But if another woman attacks Palin, they cannot accuse her of being a sexist, because she is a woman too.

I always watched CSPAN to keep up with what is going on in the political arena free from biases. The Democrats have some tough women that I've watched in action. Debbie Wasselman (Spelling ?), Barbara Boxer, Hillary, Shiela Lee, Maxine Waters, and a quite a few other ones. They can tear Palin down, and not be accused of being sexist. Also, other Democratic women, mothers who have children, grandmothers, can do the same. We have women on this blog that are very intelligent.

Karl Rove might be intelligent, but there are Democratic men that are just as intelligent. Just because he help Bush win one election, doesn't make him God. He is not too popular right about now, because of all of his crooked dealings. Let the men go after the men, and the women go after the women. I don't know what you guys think about that, but I think it will work.

They just need to put their heart and soul in it, because it can be done. People shouldn't fear a man, because that is all Rove is another man. And nothing there is nothing like a good catfight.

Re: Bristol being Trig's baby mama.

Trig is almost 5 months old. Bristol is 5 months pregnant...supposedly. At least that's what we've been told. Please notice how they made her just pregnant enough to not be able to have given birth to Trig. Remember, a woman is at her most fertile right after she gives birth.

This is just messed up from top to bottom. If they wanted to stop the rumors about Bristol and Trig, all they had to do is release Sarah's medical records, or have the person who was supposed to review her medical records as a frigging part of the normal VP vetting process say, yeah, she gave birth 5 months ago. But since she hasn't been vetted, they couldn't do that. So, instead, they pile up lie upon lie, upon misdirection, and think for some reason that they won't get caught. In 2008, with a 24/7 news cycle.

What about when Palin laughed at her opponent being called the "B" word and making fun of her having cancer. That's mighty Christian of her, I don't know what bible she read, but my KJV tells me that you are supposed to pray for people to be healed, not laugh at them.

What about her pastor who has condemn folks to hell? My KJV tells me that "Jesus didn't come to condemn the world, he came to save it."

Something is wrong with that man's teachings. Wrong food to feed the congregation, because he teaches a subtle form of hate.

"Ms. Palin also began annual trips to Washington to lobby for federal money for specific initiatives, including rail projects and a mental health center."

Okay, so she had to have known McCain before or met him at some time prior since she was a lobbist and she had connections to Abramoff. Anyone with connections to Abramoff has connections to Bush's cronies. I think people should really check into this.

"When Ms. Palin completed her second and final term, in 2002, her stepmother-in-law, Faye Palin, was running to succeed her."

This is telling and let's me know she is a backstabbing cutthroat and family ties doesn't mean nothing to her. Apparently, her and mother-in-law don't get along.

"Once in office, Ms. Palin asked many of Mr. Stein’s backers to resign — something virtually unheard of in Wasilla in past elections. The public works director, city planner, museum director and others were forced out. The police chief, Irl Stambaugh, was later fired outright."

A foretelling of things to come if McCain wins the elections. Another Bush, similar to what has been done in the General Attorneys office with the firing of all those Attorneys.

I was on a black conservative blog and people made a big fuss about the blogger saying that Bristol Palin was 'knocked up'. What was amusing was that even the blog owner admitted that she had used the term before but usually in reference to minority teenagers. Apparently her readership has no problem with 'knocked up' in reference to sheniqua. They were more than happy to skewer those teenages as a social blight, who cant get their acts together. But the minute it is Bristol then white feminity has to be presented as blameless as snow...

Why wouldn't the mother say that he graduated? Mothers are usually proud in mentioning that their child has graduated. Strange!

Another thing I find rather odd is there is no mention of plans for College them. I thought that was part of making the America dream a success.

An Open Letter to Senator John McCain and the Republican National Committee:

September 2, 2008

Dear Senator McCain and Mike Duncan, Chairman, Republican National Committee:

"Dear" is all you will get from me. By now you all should be in Minneapolis for your shindig that you call a “convention.”

I am an African-American, and I cannot hold back my anger any longer. It is a documented fact that the Republican Party before and during the Civil War supported and benefited from slavery. As a matter of fact, the Republican Party was started for the express purpose of defending slavery and holding down black people.

It is also a matter of record that the Ku Klux Klan was started by Republicans after the Civil War to terrorize and murder black and white Democrats in the South. Republicans hated the fact that many ex-slaves were serving in state and federal government. They also hated the fact that everyone of the ex-slaves were all members of the Democratic Party. All the white Democrats, before and after the Civil War, were sympathetic to the cause of abolition of slavery and of civil rights for blacks, therefore racist Republicans had no use for them.

The Republicans historically have been bitter opponents of the following Democratic initiatives:

• The 13th Amendment that abolished slavery in 1865
• The 1866 Civil Rights Act
• The First Reconstruction Act of 1867
• The 14th Amendment in 1868 that made all persons born in the U.S., including former slaves, U.S. citizens.
• The 15th Amendment in 1870 that give every citizen the right to vote
• The Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 which was to stop Republican Klansmen to terrorized white and black Democrats
• The 1875 Civil Rights Act
• The 1957 Civil Rights Act
• The 1964 Civil Rights Act
• The 1965 Voters Rights Act

In every case, the white Republicans in the Senate, especially Senator Everett Dirksen, and in the House of Representatives fought passage of these laws in every turn as well as being compelled to give up their slaves after the Civil War. The Democratic leadership, especially Senator Robert Byrd who has always despised the Ku Klux Klan and who discouraged white Americans from joining that gang, fought very hard to have those laws passed. Democratic Senator Al Gore Sr., not only voted for the Civil Rights Act in 1964, but he, along side of Senator Byrd, fought a 74-day filibuster by Republicans to defeat the legislation. The Congressional Quarterly of June 26, 1964 recorded that, in the Senate, only 69% of Republicans (46 for, 21 against) voted for the Civil Rights Act as compared to 82% of Democrats (27 for, 6 against) the Civil Rights Act. In the House of Representatives, 61% of Republicans (152 for, 96 against) voted for the Civil Rights Act and. 80% of Democrats, (138 for, 34 against) voted for it.
The Republicans have also opposed every Democratic anti-lynching bill to their shame. The Democrats have always been opposed to lynchings for decades.

For these reason, we black people deserve an apology from the Republican Party for the following:

• support of slavery, on record in their platforms
• support of the Dred Scott decision
• support of segregation and Jim Crow prejudice
• opposition to anti-lynching laws
• attempts to destroy black schools and colleges, and the burning of black churches
• efforts to defeat the Reparation Bill of 1866
• efforts to defeat every piece of Civil Rights legislation from 1863 to 1964
• efforts to have the 1875 Civil Rights Act declared unconstitutional
• support of the Ku Klux Klan, composed of entirely Republicans, and its vile and violent racist agenda:
• Republican participation in the lynchings of thousands of blacks.

History will also show the following:
• Eugene “Bull” Conner (the poster boy of American racism) was a Republican.
• The poll tax was a Republican institution.
• Black codes and Jim Crow laws were instituted by Republicans.

Africans Americans are even due reparations from the Republican Party since it supported and benefited from slavery as well as supporting KKK terror, racism, etc. The Civil Rights movement started because of the majority white racist Republican power structure in the South.
My conclusion is that if this nation was left to the devices of the Republican Party, African Americans would not be anywhere near where we are today. As a matter of fact I would argue that we African Americans would not have any constitutional rights, be U.S. citizens or otherwise because we would still be slaves!

The Democratic Party, of course, has had its problems racially here and there, unfortunately, but it does not have the consistent racist legacy for decades and decades, stretching back to the early 1800’s as the Republican Party has had. The Democratic Party, in general, has always been supportive of and open and honest with African Americans throughout its history.

It is time for the Republican Party to come clean, tell the truth, and settle the debt.

Anonymous said...

@Brother X-

I'm rather confused. I'll freely admit that my history classes in school were bad, but since then I've read a number of sources, including "Lies My Teacher Told Me", which portrays events differently than you appear to portray.

For example, let's take the Presidential election of 1860. What is known as the "south" was carried mostly by Breckinridge (Southern Democrat), with a bit carried by Douglas (Democrat), and Bell (Constitutional Union). Douglas and Breckinridge were supporters of slavery; Lincoln (Republican) opposed equal rights, but did oppose slavery - at least in the Lincoln-Douglas debates.

Furthermore, if you look at Black Senators and Representatives before 1935 (2 Senators and 22), all of them were Republican. After 1935, only 1 of 3 of black Senators and 3 of 95 Representatives were Republican.

From this, I can conjecture that something major happened that caused a party shift of most black officials elected to national office between the late 1800s and the 1930s. I am unclear as to what that is; perhaps the nadir was linked to Republicans? Perhaps the second KKK (founded in the mid 1910s - the first one was destroyed by Grant, also a Republican) became associated with Republicans?

Anonymous said...

zimbel, must have been the New Deal that caused the shift. The republicans were also being rightly accused of oppressing the South after Reconstruction so maybe a little of both. Regardless, the Republicans' played a bigger hand in passing good legislation than you want to believe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Manifesto . Evil people are evil, doesn't matter what you call them.

Anonymous said...

Zimbel you are correct! While I have no love for the Republican party, this party was started by abolitionist and considered to be against slavery to some extent. This is not the same Republican party of today. Most blacks were Republicans after the Civil War because of Lincoln.

During the Reconstruction Period blacks gained power in both state legislatures and Congress. Reconstruction ended around 1877 when white northern Republicans made a deal with southern Democrats during the Hayes/Tilden election, to pull federal troops from the South if their Hayes could have the presidency. This way the democrats were able to enact laws and terrorize blacks to stop them from voting. Jim Crow became the norm.

Blacks only started voting for Democrats in large numbers under FDR. Then comes the switch. Racists like Strom Thurmond and others won seats in government by switching parities.

You should also mention the Republican party and Goldwater were against the Civil Rights Act and it was a Democrat, LBJ, that signed it into law and lost the south to the Republicans in the process.

Yes, Classical one, but the 1964 Civil Rights Act would not have passed without the Republican votes because the southern Democrats voted against it. You left that out.

It would not surprise me one bit if the girl was promiscuous-it really wouldn't!That ain't my issueThe thing that strikes me as bad-and hypocritical-is(like you said Field Negro) the fact that this child is the daughter of a mother that is in public view promoting "traditional values" under the banner of the republican party-and endorsing(and thereby trying to encourage other people to support) this crappy message- despite the obvious fact that her own daughter does not apparently completely adhere to them. I know you said this and I am glad you stated this because that is how I felt when I found all this out.I also feel that if the child was a poor POC single parent mom, people would not even try to sugarcoat this. To add to this-just from a political standpoint-if a liberal leaning candidate put their pregnant,unmarried teen on display-the Republicans would have a freaking field day. Don't get me wrong,it does not appear to be much of a difference between either party at this stage in the game-but even with my disillusion with Democrats-I ain't feeling the rethuglicans so I couldn't keep from saying this.

And that cheap PR trick worked! She stole the show. World attention turned from Obama to Palin -- not to McCain.

But that PR trick will backfire. Whait and see. Americans are pretty gullible. Bush has demonstrate that. But they are not that dumb!

Or are they?
