Toboggan Ride Into Hell


Darn it! I have been SOOO good about not posting articles about Sarah Palin for a long time. At this point I believe it is much better to just ignore her, because she isn’t any kind of elected official anymore and seems to just say bat-shit crazy things to get attention. But this was just too funny.

Michele Bachmann, on the other hand, is still in Congress. The good news is that Bachmann is retiring at the end of this term, however some people think she is doing this so she can run for president. Considering what happened the last time she ran for president, it should be funny, even if she does it without Palin.

UPDATE: I don’t often point out that Michele Bachmann is bat-shit crazy, but when I do… she steps right up and proves me right. Wednesday on a conservative radio talk show Bachmann claimed that gays “want to abolish age of consent laws, which means children would… we would do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.”

    Then Hillary could pick Kerry as her running mate and have a great campaign.

    Two comments:

    First, those pictures of Palin and Bachman should be in the dictionary illustrating the word “braying.”

    Second, Warren/[fill in name of choice]. She’s about the only politician in Washington who actually seems to give a damn about ordinary US citizens and the downward spiral this country is on.

    While I love me some Elizabeth Warren, no. Not this year. I can tell you exactly what the GOP strategy would be: compare her inexperience to Obama’s. When he ran, he had 4 years in the Senate. If she runs in 2016, it will be the same. There were a number of grumblings that people were voting for him to prove they weren’t racist, but that charge was mostly kept in check because it would likely back-fire. If she’s the Dem nominee for president, there will be an all-out assault, accusing people of favoring her only because she’s a woman. Sadly, it is acceptable to be an almost overt misogynist, but it is completely taboo to be an almost overt racist. Furthermore, given her role in the creation of the FCPB and the Obama administration, the GOP will plaster her with accusations of “Obama’s 3rd term,” just like the Dems (successfully) got McCain’s candidacy labelled as “Bush’s 3rd term.”

    As a President, there is almost no one that I would like to have more than Elizabeth Warren. As a 2016 candidate, though, she is a non-starter. I would very much vote for her, but it’d be the Dem equivalent of the Barry Goldwater slaughter.

    Cruz in ineligible for President. When he was born in Canada, his Father from Cuba was not a US Citizen. His father became a US Citizen in 2005, not 1970. Unless he qualifies because his mother was a US citizen.
    “The weight of legal and historical authority indicates that the term “natural born” citizen would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship “by birth” or “at birth”, either by being born “in” the United States and under its jurisdiction, even those born to foreign parents; by being born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents; or by being born in other situations meeting legal requirements for U.S. citizenship “at birth”. Such term, however, would not include a person who was not a U.S. citizen by birth or at birth, and who was thus born an “alien” required to go through the legal process of “naturalization” to become a U.S. citizen.”
    I’m with all you Warren Fans

    One thing going for both Palin and Bachmann, then: both natural-born U.S. citizens.
