Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?

January 28, 2009

In the 1967 movie “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” Joanna “Joey” Drayton (Katharine Houghton) is a young white American woman who has had a whirlwind romance with Dr. John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), an African American man she met while on a holiday in Hawaii. The plot is centered on Joanna’s return to her liberal upper class American home in San Francisco, bringing her new fiance to dinner to meet her parents (Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn), and the reaction of family and friends.

Shocking topic for America in 1967. In the contemporary version, to be played in Washington D.C. this coming weekend, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be sitting down to dinner with former Hawaii resident and current President Barack Hussein Obama at an exclusive club dinner in Washington.

Palin has started her own political action committee and laughed off suggestions that she’s in line for an $11 million book deal. Her stated intention of attending the dinner is strictly to promote Alaska’s interests as its governor.

It should prove interesting to see who commands bigger headlines for attending this event…

John McCain needs to go back to Arizona, announce his official switch to the Democratic Party and disappear from the political scene. The McCain camp threw Palin to the wolves when they encouraged the Couric interview. Were they that freakin’ clueless to think that the knives wouldn’t come out for that interview?

I hope everyone from the McCain camp stays the hell away from Campaign 2010 and 2012. They proved themselves to have a degree of ineptitude I thought was impossible, some standard of campaigning ethics that seemed almost quaint, and shot themselves in the foot with their ideas on fund raising. They got outspent something like 7 to 1 and while the race STILL was surprising tight (a FIVE state switch of 200,000 votes per state would have won it for McCain) I just don’t think they really, really wanted to win. McCain had no fire in the gut. They should have kept him hopped up on a six-pack a day of Red Bull the past three months to bring out the fighter in him.

After running this “holier than thou” campaign the fact that they let any slurs appear about Gov. Palin shows the doddering old fools in his campaign for what they are. I personally think the nation needs a President “asleep at the wheel” for the next couple of years while the assorted markets figure out what needs to be done, then do it. McCain taking four hour naps in the afternoon, only waking up to veto legislation, while Sarah Palin went around and cut ribbons, would be the perfect cure for this economy.

Instead we’re in for four years of “boom and bust” overreaction and over legislation and overspending while a bunch of kids, running around like headless chickens, attempt to reassure (with practiced arrogance) that they have a freakin’ clue as to what they’re doing.

Oh yeah, and all you BDS sufferers, it won’t be too long before you refer to the Bush years as the “good old days” as you sit in the dark and shiver in front of your blank computer screens, thankful for the 43rd economic stimulus check you just received that won’t cover even a portion of your $2000/month electric bill, thankful to Lord Obama that the CO2 level in the atmosphere dropped by 10 parts per million.

But Sarah Palin will be back in Alaska, catching fresh salmon, shooting a caribou or two, raising the fees on oil that gets sent to the lower 48, and laughing her ass off while she lays in her tanning bed. She’s gonna have the last laugh. You can bet the (no money-down, zero-points, sub-prime, zero-doc, adjustable rate mortgaged) house on it.

Media In The Tank For Obama (exhibit 5,695,234)

October 16, 2008

From the Northeast PA media news and gossip blog, an image named singletondave.jpg, in an article referring to the Times-Tribune election night coverage, comes this image of Dave Singleton who reported hearing a shout of “kill him” while attending a Sarah Palin rally:

The only problem is, not one other person heard the phrase uttered.

SCRANTON – The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded.

The Scranton Times-Tribune first reported the alleged incident on its Web site Tuesday and then again in its print edition Wednesday. The first story, written by reporter David Singleton, appeared with allegations that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Obama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him.”

News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story.

Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.

“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.

He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.

Slavoski said more than 20 non-security agents were interviewed Wednesday, from news media to ordinary citizens in attendance at the rally for the Republican vice presidential candidate held at the Riverfront Sports Complex. He said Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell “kill him.” source/more

Should I hold my breath while waiting for a retraction? This is the same Pennsylvania that Rep. John Murtha referred to this week as ‘racist’. Nice work, guys.

In the words of Mark Twain:

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

Who Has The Better Looking Candidate?

I’m pretty sure this video won’t win the McCain/Palin ticket any votes, but in the pure interest of political science I don’t want to deprive my readers…. of the future Governor of Alaska in a swimsuit competition…

Silenced

September 22, 2008

Alaska Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was scheduled to give a speech today at a rally in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza to protest the appearance of President Ahmadinejad of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Her appearance was canceled by rally organizers who felt her appearance would turn the protest into a political event.

The speech she would have given:

I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country — leaders from different faiths and political parties united in a single voice of outrage.

Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York — to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan — and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator’s intentions and to call for action to thwart him.

He must be stopped. (more…)

Sarah Palins E-Mail “Hacked”

September 17, 2008

In the words of the “hacker”:

rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:57:22 No.85782652

Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.

In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.

after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)

the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.

I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…

>> rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:58:04 No.85782727

If nothing else, this incident is a worthwhile reminder about the value of “strong” passwords in this day and age.

UPDATE:

NASHVILLE – State Rep. Mike Kernell (D) said today that he was aware of Internet rumors about his son being the subject of speculation that he accessed the personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Lola, you ignorant …

September 10, 2008

Just how stupid is CNN and/or it’s reporters?

“(John) McCain has been really good about painting (Barack) Obama as this lightweight … They don’t want that to come back on Sarah Palin, and people say, yes, she looks good in a bikini clutching an AK-47, but is she equipped to run the country?” CNN’s Lola Ogunnaike said in response to a question on the network’s “Reliable Sources” show, which aired Sunday.

Uh, Lola, have you ever heard of a program called Photoshop? I’ve heard it is quite popular.

I’m going to help you out here:

Does that help? Also, it’s a BB gun, not an AK-47. Snopes has the full story.
