One year ago today

My buddy Alex Pruteanu posted this on Twitter today: One year ago McCain introduced Sarah Palin to the world. Your thoughts?

I am nonplussed over Palin's latest achievement: She used a simple Facebook entry to cast the pall of "death panels" over the country and in doing so, she's made a significant contribution to the Reform bill: the possible deletion of one of the most intelligent, humane and money saving parts of it.

And why does she command such power and attention? Because she's pretty and she shoots moose.

God. Bless. America.

It could be worse; Obama could have lost and Palin could have been vice-president right now.

Maybe someone upstairs really is looking after us?

Palin's just a figurehead. Left to her own devices she wouldn't be a liberal or conservative or even moose hunter. Never lose sight of the powers behind the reactionary throne.

By the way, I suggest you read the SHOCK DOCTRINE by Naomi Klein to see who's really fucking up this world.

You say "she's pretty and she shoots moose" like it's a bad thing.

I am counting down the days until Election Day 2012, because that's when the traditionalist and pro-American backlash against Barack Hussein Mohammed Obama will be complete with her landslide victory.

Sarah and her team of tax cutting pro-American conservatives will have a lot of work to do undoing the damage caused by this usurper (no birth certificate, and I KNOW he was born in Kenya)'s fascistic marxism that he has foisted upon this country in the most nefarious of ways.

At nefariousism is his MO, isn't it? Grabbing power at every turn, promising to create a "civilian national security force" (HELLO GESTAPO?) every bit as powerful and strong as the united states military, promoting an agenda wherein his government would control and dispense healthcare, threatening to penalize the most productive members of society through abusive taxation to fund his lunacy and now this covert assault on what we do here...

This guy is seriously bad news. He's the perfect storm of charm, ego and twisted goals.

There is simply no excuse for supporting Barack Hussein Obama's domestic agenda. As he eulogizes the shameful drunken son of a moonshiner, we're watching him get more and more drunk with power.

And it's the electorate who will be saddled with the hangover for generations to come and the way things are going, we may not ever have a say about it again.

He's already getting us to snitch on each other (flag@whitehouse.gov)!!!

This country needs Sarah Palin NOW!

To the person up above me: BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Point by talking point straight out of Fox News. Well played, sir. Now, tell us a conservative position we DON'T know. Perhaps an original, personal one. Don't be afraid to stray from the herd. The herd is going over the cliff, my good man.

My dear sweet Lord,

You really need a blowjob.

Sweet basil, as opposed to Thai basil, lemon basil,holy basil or African blue basil?

Lord Basil said...

You people can mock me all you want. I'm prepared for it.

The leftist establishment tries to marginalize people like me with demeaning terms like "teabagger" or "birther," thinking that will do the trick.

Well it won't.

In fact, patriots are coming out of the closet left and right, bravely denouncing another of Barack Hussein Obama the Usurper (still no birth certificate)'s latest power grab.

Patriots such as Jon Voight and Mike Huckabee:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyJQqDjNSIk&feature=player_embedded

And I must say it is touching to see a man of great talent like Voight put his livelihood and well being on the line by speaking out against the socialists and totalitarians. It is why people like Voight, Ben Stine, and Kelsey Grammar are the only Hollywood types worth listening to anymore. You know, there was a time when Hollywood made pro-American movies. People like John Ford, John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, and Henry Fonda loved America. But then traitorous scum like Fonda's daughter sat on that gun turret pretending to shoot down our boys, and it all went to hell, and now the America haters are in power.

Voight is right in this video. I have long predicted that there will be civil unrest as America's flirtation with Marxist Fascism becomes a reality. Hell, I'll come right out and say it - there will be a civil war. Freedom loving states will say enough of this and leave this disgusting union and try to salvage the dream of the founding fathers from the socialist pot smokers and homosexuals (like the usurper in the White House now - still no birth certificate).

A backlash is brewing that could render liberalism a sick artifact of the past in the 2010 and 2012 elections. That's precisely why I have doubts that they will be allowed to go forward. Look for the Obamaites to create a crisis that gives them the excuse to postpone those elections indefinitely, like Hitler did, and to silence his critics. Fox News may be gone forever. Talk radio may be gone forever, and I've posted before on how Obama wants to singlehandedly take over the internet. Then they'll come for your guns.

Well, that ursurper won't get my guns!!!

Erin O'Brien said...

Voight gave Jane Fonda a righteous mustache ride in "Coming Home."

I mean righteous!

(S)wine said...

He could play the shit outta that banjo in "Deliverance."

(S)wine said...

...and esteemed dude, don't worry. This country will NEVER turn to (insert horror music here) Socialism or Marxism. It's not advantageous to corporations, and that's who owns the government.

Kirk Jusko said...

Don't forget MIDNIGHT COWBOY where Voight wore a cowboy hat, just like John Wayne.

I think the comparison ends there.

Birthers have now decided that what makes a person a true, blue, red-blooded American is not the color of your complexion but how much foreskin you have.

Commenters (and circumcised Americans) over at Free Republic struck on a revelation yesterday: if Barack Obama has not been circumcised, then he must not have been born in the United States. Why? Because all of their boys were circumcised. The exchange is amusing:

hoosiermama:
The only other thing that hit me was that [Larry] Sinclair said BO was not circumcised. When my son was born in a hospital that was done as a matter of routine without even consulting us. Would the same be for Hawaii? OTOH People born at home or in some other cultures are not circumcised.

thecodont:
A relative of mine was born (in a hospital) a couple of years after BO's alleged birth date. He was circumcised also (as a matter of routine, not according to any family request).

afraidfortherepublic:
My son was born in June of 1961 in a hospital in CA, and the nurses released us because of miscommunication in a day and a half before the circumcision was done. We had to go back to the doctor's office to have it done a week later, and the doctor was NOT HAPPY. My second son was born in the same hospital 4 years later. I don't remember them asking me about it. Routine procedure for little boys.

hoosiermama:
Wish we had someone to make a phone call to the hospitols in HI and ask if they routinely do circumcism [sic] and when that practice started.

MHGinTN:
You might want to make that call to a Canadian hospital ...

MHGinTN:
No...it would have been in Kenya....not Canada.

I am having a vision of a court room scene. The judge turns to O sitting in the witness chair to his left and says "I am sorry, Mr. President, but I am going to have to ask you to stand and drop trou ....."

philbilly said...

So to recap,

Palin shoots moose, which I take to be the hirsute version of shooting a beaver.

Patriots are smoking pot in the closet.

Circumcision is a second
amendment guarantee.

John Wayne's hat was in "Deliverance".

Did you know in Google Preferences you can set the the language to "Elmer Fudd"?

Reawwy.

Erin O'Brien said...

I did not know that.

And I will admit, philbilly, that I know nothing about you. I smolder with curiosity about you, you curious, curious, curious commenter, you.

erfo!

VideoDude said...

I doesn't matter what we on the left say. The only real problem the people like Basil have is our current president is black! They have proved over an over again that he was born in Hawaii, but the lie still persists. Thanks to the radio Mouth pieces, like Limpballs, etc. They won't believe the truth because the don't want to. Remmeber Sister Sarah was for "end of life counciling" before she was against them.

I love how Lord Basil says "He knows Obama was born in Kenya." Were you there at the hospital?

Kirk Jusko said...

Um...I think the foot soldiers, the ones who show up at town halls bawling, "I no longer recognise my country!" are indeed racist, but the big insurance companies that may be encouraging those folks, Obama could be an WASP, and they'd still go after him. They've go too much to lose not to.

About philbilly: If I had to guess I'd say he's liberal on social issues, and a conservative when it comes to economics. I fully expect him to comment back that I'm full of it.

Earl Tesch said...

Please let me be clear...I am a waffling, spineless moderate. I hold myself loyal to NO group of people. I'm not even vanilla. I'm oatmeal (No sugar, no milk).

I don't support Sarah Palin for any office nor do I support any other "candidate" real or imagined. I support the president, whomever he or she may be. "Support" doesn't necessarily include agreement.

Sadly, when I do disagree with President Obama, I am categorized as either a racist or birther or "Hope America/Obama Fails"-ist. (SIGH)

She is pretty. She does shoot moose.

He was probably born in the U.S. and nationalized health care is likely a bad idea.

ps. Hi there, Ms. O'Brien.
