Randi Rhodes suggests Governor Palin gets her freak on with teenaged boys

– Which, to be fair to Ms Rhodes, them lonely days and nights in a winterproofed doublewide can be really trying on oversexed reindeer groomers and ice fishing aficionados. At least, that’s what her friends in Manhattan say. Besides, Alaska is barely even a part of the US. Like Mississippi or West Virginia or places like that. Hillbilly outre, as it were.

In fact, it’s total anarchy up there, is what I hear. So strange. So full of Otherness (which, sure, typically that’s the kind of exotic demographic championed by leftists, but in this case, it appears these strange creatures actually believe in guns and Jesus and individual rights — and almost none of them own the complete box set of “Sex in the City”. So really: can duelling banjos and inbreeding be far behind?).

Hell, I’m not even sure these “citizens” can get DirecTV. Or have ever once heard Jose Feliciano play an acoustic set in a small Greenwich Village cafe.

I mean, Jesus! Who are these…people…?

  1. I thought they were your nextdoor neighbors, battlestate-man.

  2. Excellent. The Unhinged Ones continue their rampage.

  3. Oh, my, looks like Randi-kins is having conversations with Ketel again.

  4. Bad mom: Check.
    Unauthentic woman: Check.
    Slut: Check.

    Well, they haven’t tagged Gov. Palin with “Dyke” yet, so there’s that.

  5. When I hear that someone was elected editor of Harvard Law Review, I think:
    popularity contest winner.
    Not just any popularity contest, but one amongst law school elite.
    This does not evoke positive feelings in me for the winner. maybe a, “ummmm, well, that’s nice…”
    Popularity contests within academic circles are suspect on matters of actual substance. So much so that I laugh at all the elitists falling all over themselves to be recognized as affirming the chosen.
    Middle America could give a rats ass what the intellectual elites want to circle jerk themselves over and hopefully never will.
    I am the unwashed.
    Obviously.

  6. This sort of scurrilous crap has always come out of the loony left. It”s just that this time, the loony left is at the center of the party. The media used to ignore these freaks, but now it’s all there is.

  7. Jeff G, could you please turn your gimlet eye and pen warm’d up in Hell, on today’s WSJ Weekend Journal, Pg W1, in which Lee Siegel, who wrote a book or somethin’, explains to us how Liberals define culture as Opera and art, and us flag-waving cousin-fuckers define it as chastity rings and Nascar. Or something. Then goes on to call Ms. Palin “mean, petty, and vindictive”. I’d make the obvious pot dissing kettle analogy, but then he’d call me a racialist. Hammer him, Thor!

  8. Sound to me like he’s already hammering himself.

    Opera ain’t as big as NASCAR these days, and people who watch Fellini movies tend not to understand them, anyway.

    Sometimes I think people like Siegel are double agents.

  9. When did a PW troll get a radio show?

    Nobody tells me anything…

  10. There are those that optimistically think that if women were in charge, we would still be living in grass huts. If anyone watching the last two weeks has been surprised I would posit they have not watched the documentary Mean Girls. Fey, Lohan et al showed that the grass hut theory may be wildly optimistic. Not that everyone attacking Palin is simply doing it to sharpen her claws, but from this vantage point I wouldn’t won’t to be the female Jim Perkins right now.

  11. I think Randi needs our prayers

  12. I do guess that molesting teenage boys is better than causing the whole mortgage crisis. How many teenage boys get to actually say that they banged the Vice President of the United States? I see a rotator cuff surgery future from all the high-fiving!

    But all the homosexual crack addicts get to talk about screwing the President, so they have that going for them.

    Obama on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

  13. Alaska is certainly not a hot-bed of metero sophisication like Arkansas, or south-side Chicago

  14. Son of Pig, that was absolutely awful.

    …I wish I’d a thought of it first, but what do I know. I live in Rapid City. You know. Where the Indian Wars are still going on.

  15. Manhattanites should remember: in a world without rednecks, civilization would last until the oil needed changing.

  16. One good thing about Alaska is the lack of jumping sidewalks. The kind that leap up and smack you in the choppers after 14 Bloody Marys.

    Randi might want to check into that.

  17. She reminds me of Paula Poundstone a lot. Sadly just too unattractive to do what they do. It’s gross.

  18. If she were a pretty girl the things she says wouldn’t sound near as skanky I don’t think.

  19. She reminds me of Paula Poundstone a lot.

    Except that Paula Poundstone is funny sometimes. I used to try to listen Rhodes sometimes when Air America first came on. There really are no words to accurately describe how fucking utterly stupid she is.

  20. Who is dumber, Randi (porn spelling of Randy) or Jeneane Garaflagogoogo?

    Link goes to my blog with a youtube of Bill Maher, Jeneane, Salmon Rushdie, and John Fund. It is a HOOT.

  21. Besides noting that Randi “Rocki” Rhodes is full of goonish invective, I would add that Alaska does not have lawns, so there!

  22. Otherness is only cool if their skin has a darker hue.

    Lillywhite “Others” are just fucking rednecks.

  23. I hear they eat akutaq. Nasty stuff akutaq is.

  24. Not so, cynn. I’ve been to Alaska (albeit in the summer), and people do have lawns there. Some people, anyway. So there!

    (This post brought to you courtesy of Briggs & Stratton Portable Generators.)

  25. Oh, my God, Carin, now I feel really stupid. That wasn’t a hoot, it was a glimpse into hell.

  26. I think she should stick to playing guitar.

  27. Randi should move to Alaska. Maybe she could get some gold miners to come over and help her with her sluice box

  28. I think maybe I’ll rewatch “Death Hunt” with Lee Marvin tonight. It’s the Yukon but the spirit is there.

  29. Cave Bear, Alaska is a frozen tundra wasteland populated by small minded rednecks and fugitives from the law. I watched Northern Exposure, so I should know. They do have a lot of puddle-jumper planes there, though.

  30. I wish Palin had answered that asshole Gibson’s questions about Georgia and Ukraine with, “Yeah, we’ll defend Georgia, and even South Carolina too, but fuck NY, NJ, DC and CA.”

  31. JAYSUS Carin!!! I’m going to have to take a double dose of blood pressure medication after that one.

    WTF with Rushdie??? How Fund kept his cool, I’ll never know. And that smarmy ephebophile Maher, I wanna smack that snear right off the face… but I’d put on a latex glove first.

  32. Man. Good thing she doesn’t have a funny name or look, you know, “different.”

  33. - Darleen, turn on comments on your Redneck woman post.

    – And cynn. Fuck you and your elitist retard friends.

  34. Well, they haven’t tagged Gov. Palin with “Dyke” yet, so there’s that.

    But didn’t that paragon of manhood, Roger Ebert, question whether she is a woman?

  35. - The Metro-sexual media harpies are totally losing it. Palin is shining a bright spotlight on their dust filled vagina’s, and empty nests, and they don’t know how to handle it. One massive mental breakdown by the elite in pig-colored lipstick.

  36. I think maybe I’ll rewatch “Death Hunt” with Lee Marvin tonight.

    Excellent choice, Geoff. One of my guilty pleasures. Favorite line, “That’s one way to stop the buzzin’.”

  37. ave Bear, Alaska is a frozen tundra wasteland populated by small minded rednecks and fugitives from the law.

    One thing about Alaska: it weeds out the idiots, even the sweet ones.

  38. I thought Sister Palin’s fertile fruit had already uretically marked off the young buck territory in Wasilla.

  39. The announcement of Palin as McCain’s running mate has triggered an all-out frenzy of hatred and lunacy on the Left which has percolated up into the MSM. This has caused some of us on the right to protectively circle the wagons around her. The press, which has carefully scrubbed any mention of the true provocation, is now pointing at our defensiveness and yelling: “Look! They are circling the wagons around Palin! The right must be worried about her readyness!”

    I think that the left-wing swarm attacks are a phenomenon that is influencing the dynamic of this election, and as such they should be reported and openly acknowledged in the press.

  40. #14 — “…I wish I’d a thought of it first, but what do I know. I live in Rapid City. You know. Where the Indian Wars are still going on.”

    I can relate. I mean, obviously, just TRY getting a decent Lamb Saag north of Mulholland Drive…

  41. The stupid was high, but John Fund was spot-on, and the sputterings of the other guests, by comparison …

    Honestly, I bet Maher never invites a smart person on that show eva again.

  42. Lunatic Leftist-pygmies and their torrents of sprayed tinkle! A massive tidal wave of sin against God and virgins!

    Besmirch her and Damon’s dogs shall go for the throat!

  43. Randi demonstrates that you can put lipstick on a pig.

  44. Why we love you, and thank you, Jeff. You channeling a Soho Marxist calling on Jesus gives an old Christianist Hope, for Change, you know, my Jewish ff. I perused some of the 15k+ comment at abcnew.com about the Gibson/Palin interviews. The commenters infected with Palinitis often started their hateful rants with “OMG”…”Dear Lord”…”Good God”…”Jesus Christ”…”Sweet Jesus”…ad nauseum. That is some terrible disease Sensible Sarah has delivered to Obama supporters. Pity. The symptoms may persist as long or longer than BDS, and this praying to a higher being thing may catch on, even at Obama’s old church, though they best be careful for what they pray.

  45. BBH

    The comments seem to be working fine in the Pub. There’s two on that post right now.

  46. Double feature movie night!

    “Death Hunt” is a good first choice.
    “Clan of the Cave Bear” with Darryl Hannah will be my second feature. Darryl is so Sarah Palin in that flick, with weapons and wild animals and savage sex all wrapped up in dead animal skins. Come to think about it, I may start off with that one. cultr.

  47. - I saw Darleen. Thanks. Must be the Spam-o-tron doing its magic again.

  48. #36 Jeffersonian
    “One of my guilty pleasures.”

    Me too. It’s one of only a few movies I saw in a theater, and bought on VHS then LD and then DVD. My main draw was it was one where they handled the firearms in a real manner, plus the scenery. “Thief” with James Caan was another that got how guns work right.

  49. - I’m loving it. Shes sure is inside your OODA loops, huh Lefties.

    – Rave on moonbats. Jess keep chomping on the Palin hand grenade. GO TEAM!

    – In the mean time while you slime ball Obama crank jerkers are running around screeching at the moon, she’s being showered with love everywhere she goes.

    – I were you, I’d be scared shitless too, rimrats.

  50. - Only hope you assholes have now is to call Hillerys cell and beg her for forgiveness and to come back.

    – Biden is like a loud mouth wagon wheel hanging around the CandyMans neck.

    – He stays on the ticket, and you keep dissing Rodhem, you can kiss your Marxists asses goodbye.
    Hopefully you’re to stupid to listen.

  51. One good thing about Alaska is the lack of jumping sidewalks.

    Clearly this is a person who has never visited Juneau.

    Regards,
    Ric

  52. well, I thought I’d go do a little pot stirring on the Obamabot blog (I’m “leftcoast_womyn”) to ask about if anyone was worried about a backlash for mocking McCain’s disability vis a vis keyboard. They scoff because:

    >the claim is a “lie” because McCain uses a cell phone and black berry
    >his arms were broken not his fingers
    >he should have learned voice recognition software

    but what is more revealing are these quotes:

    >We live in the 21st Century now, if his hands are crippled like you say, maybe he shouldn’t be running for president. If he can’t handle a keyboard, he might press the wrong button on the HOTLINE!!!

    >Being illiterate may be a disability that he gained from being a POW but we can NOT have an illiterate running our country! Are you stupid?!!

    >BE HONEST FOR GOD SAKE! McCain OBVIOUSLY was too STUPID TO LEARN!!! So don’t even try it LAMO’S! McCain is trying to strip REAL HERO’s of their title and McCain is ABSOLUTELY SICK, SICK, SICK for doing so!

    Such LOVELY people!

  53. #50 BBH

    Hopefully you’re to stupid to listen.

    Apparently, they are.

  54. #52 Darleen

    The Proggs are having a collective mental breakdown, and, so far, it’s damn entertaining.

  55. BBH

    I don’t think O! doing an Eagleton with Biden at this point would help at all. That will really flash “cynical move” to the independent voters in the way the Obamabots are trying to pin on the Palin pick.

    O! has to dance with the girl he brung….

  56. Oh cool…. almost kickoff for USC v Ohio

  57. - Thanx again Darleen, almost forgot.

    – Go Buckeyes!

  58. BBH: Jesus, I was making a joke. But I guess a sense of humor isn’t an earmark. What, besides fuck, would you have me do with my elitist retard freinds? Most of the people I know are struggling to get by. Shall we just tax them out of existence so you can pick over the spoils?

  59. Darleen, tell ‘em he’s got a speech recognition device. Cindy. ;)

  60. A leader of the free world who doesn’t “get” LOLcats? Without TotalFark or a Facebook Poke?
    It is not to be borne!!!!

  61. Cheezit, I just read a UK article, basically a notice that Dem insider’s believe Barack and campaign is off the rails, and losing a “gimmee” election, and even it manages to cram in “McCain confessed to not knowing how to use E-mail”. Because even here journo’s are too lazy to check any farking thing.

    McCain knows how to use email, and never “confessed” to any such thing. But I guess that was too easy and fun to write.

  62. Incidentally, be my facebook fren plz.

  63. The Proggs are having a collective mental breakdown, and, so far, it’s damn entertaining.

    Second that. This has been a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be a few months ago.

  64. Carin,

    Fund did much better than I ever could, but he wasn’t able to keep up with the host and the other two guests very well, and therefore tacitly endorsed that Bush didn’t win in 2000, only in 2004.

    It’s a terrific debating technique for the left; hurl so much shit in such a short time period that no one person can possible respond to each individual, idiotic smear.

  65. The fate of a Nation hangs upon it.

  66. Cynn. One does not tax the poor out of existence. If your friends actually ‘struggle’ (pardon my abject disbelief) then there’s help for them in various government reliefs. That’s the Democrat’s way; to lure voters by the promise of nice handouts, right? All the major urban areas do it.

    Or, emulating you, they can just drink their wine from a box.

  67. Hey they had some of that high-tone box wine at the whole foods. It’s the new hotness. So Cynn’s friends can still be effete and elite.

  68. McCain may not use e-mail but his team knows Youtube. I guess they skipped a tech generation or two.

    When we elect a President we get them and their ability to hire and manage the best team. President sets the direction, team pulls the weight.

  69. You know, Serr8d, you make an excellent point. No group of people can literally be taxed out of existence. Sorry, I had bad data and a pesky rhetorical flourish. You guys would love to see us all gone, right? So you could have the Great Booyah Nation, unfettered by dissonance, busily enterprising itself into oblivion. Sounds fun!

  70. Excuse me a bit of gloating …. USC 14 Ohio 3

  71. He DOES use email. He prefers direct communications.

    His campaign in 2000 was unprecedented in its use of computing technology and was touted for same at the time. He does rely on staff to do his googling, so to speak. And they do it well. Unlike some people you could point to.

  72. Who is this “you guys” Cynn is always referencing?

  73. I’ve never been even close to tempted by a franchise opportunity. Not ever. Except I have this idea where you could open a chain of stores selling for real condiments and locate them next to Panda Express and probably do quite well.

  74. If I’m sounding a little feverish, I am. I have a fever. And two boxes of sugar-free popsicles.

  75. oh. Chinese mustard can help with that I heard. The real kind, not the Panda one.

  76. That’s a great idea, Happy, but you’d probably have to sell frozen custard in addition.

  77. Everybody loves sprinkles.

  78. After the kim chee.

  79. Actually, SarahW, I McCain does not in fact use email or a computer, I consider that politically astute. He doesn’t leave a trail of discoverable crap in his wake. Rather than succumb to the Luddite angle, I think he should emphasize that he does his communicating directly and in person. For what it’s worth, that makes points with me. And all my effete friends.

  80. Chinese mustard helps a fever?

  81. I have some in the other room but it sounds like it might smart.

  82. Cynn, there are press articles where the opposite is discussed and exhibited. He does review emails and respond to them – either by email ( often using his wife to type them) or using his other gadgets (phone, blackberry, etc)

  83. He certainly does see he advantages in it. He said it’s easy to miscommunicate in emails, and I think that’s true enough.

  84. oof, I’m not feeling so hot.

    Except for the temperature thing.

  85. SarahW

    After the proper meds for fever, there is not much you can do but drink plenty of cool (not cold) liquids … green tea, water ..or slightly warmed like broth. If you have nausea, coke syrup (it’s non prescription but you need to ask your pharmacist for it) over crushed ice.

    Stay out of drafts, dress comfortable and light and SLEEP.

    Feel better, SW.

  86. Take melatonin, baby! It assumes control of your id, ego, and superego!! And then you collapse, so make sure you’re on a soft surface. Take care!

  87. You guys would love to see us all gone, right?

    And yet, oddly, the governments that round up people and put them in death camps always seem to be left-wing.

    Funny, that.

  88. Oh, and SarahW? I hope you’re feeling better soon!

  89. - Oh gee cynn. Did you take that serious. No, no. I was just kidding. You know, lipstick on a pig. Fish in paper. jokes. You know. Jokes.

  90. Best way I know to feel better is, take a shot of Southern Comfort mixed with honey.

    Especially if you’ve a cough. Or not.

    Then, follow with the green tea, if you have to.

    (Feeling better? ;D )

  91. Ok, halftime.

    and I will be pissed if they don’t show at least some of the halftime show

    /former band mom

  92. - Ok. Ohio needs to pack up its gear and get back on the bus. Maybe next year.

  93. BBH

    I never EVER discount the 2nd half. Ohio has been known in the past to kick SC’s butt all over the place. The history of their meetings is pretty evenly matched.

  94. Oh No!
    Randi’s broadcast will reach an audience of tens!
    We’re…
    Oh. Wait. Randi Rhodes. Heh.
    Carry on.

  95. - I’ve been watching them slep out here since the year I attended the OJ playoff game.

    – I can generally tell when they’ve come to play, and when they’ve come to star gaze and enjoy the sun.

  96. I saw at the grocery store today that the National Enquirer is getting in on the action. I bet the MSM will not treat it like they did the John Edwards story. And unlike Edwards this seems to be all anonymous sources.

  97. What…. would you have me do with my elitist retard freinds? Most of the people I know are struggling to get by.

    Dewd, you’re confusing “privilege” and “elitism”; the former consists of economic and/or social stature, the latter is an attitude that one cultivates.

    I guess you missed this post, in which the definition of modern leftist elitism is expounded upon.

  98. Damn, Jeff. Before I even read the comments–brother, that’s some fine writing.

    Keep it up!

  99. I’ve been watching them slep out here since the year I attended the OJ playoff game

    My parents had SC season tickets then. I saw several games with The Juice.

  100. considering all the political enemies Palin made during her corruption busting sweep of AK politics

    1) drug/sex charges would have come out during the governor race
    2) drug/sex charges from anon sources (yeah, we partied with him/her, s/he was an ANIMAL I tell you) are suspect at best.

    Just because a broken clock is right twice a day doesn’t mean you start relying on it for giving one reliable time all day.

  101. Sarah W.

    I hope you recover.

    Also I found this which shows that McCain was e-mailing back in the 2000 campaign and is considered the most tech-savvy Senator.

    Get well soon.

  102. - All I know is I watched a few short minutes of her speech on the campaign trail today, and you could see how supportive the crowd was.

    – Also buried somewhere in the bowels of the MLeftM is the ginormous crowds that McCain/Palin is drawing in at their rallies.

    – I guess if it isn’t a German crowd drooling over a Socialist rock star, it isn’t news worthy.

  103. Agreed Darleen.

    I wonder how far down the wormhole the media plan on going. They just keep digging themselves deeper.

  104. - Sarah – have you been experiencing dizzy. If so I think I have the same thing. I thought it was just sinus, but I don’t remember ever having this.

  105. I wonder how far down the wormhole the media plan on going.

    I’ve said this before, but maybe they’re all planning on having jobs in the Ministry of Truth once Obama gets elected.

  106. - Thats exactly it SPB. And if he crashes and burns a lot of them will be standing in line for their unemployment checks.

    – You notice no matter how elite they are, or how big those heads of their’s get to be, having to drag them everywhere they go, they still cash the checks.

  107. “they’re all planning on having jobs in the Ministry of Truth once Obama gets elected.”

    So this is like “The Apprentice” with Obama as “The Donald”

  108. Sarah Palin makes me sick. I hate that she was able to steal Barack Obama’s mojo just by showing up wearing rimless glasses and a skirt.

    I hate that she makes Joe Biden look like John McCain and John McCain look like the maverick he is not.

    I’d like to watch her puke up bile. That would amuse me greatly. O!

  109. Goal reached!! 400 pounds!!!

    So what do we need to do to throw Salmon Rushies idiot fucking ass out of this country? I am goddamn boiling fucking mad after listening to that ingrateful little dead apostate walking bitch about Bush and this country. Kick that motherfucker to the closest Islamic curb and then see how he feels about shit.

  115. Thanks for the well-wishes. That coke syrup sound actually really good to me right now, Darleen.

    But maybe laughter is the best medicine. My husband came into the bedroom with his powerbook and made me look at this post over at Ace’s. I’m still laughing. Lord I hope this isn’t some kind of delirium. I made DH print it out for me.

  116. Whoa, BMoe if you want you should call ICE. They are hyperresponsive. Just ask all the dead people in Denver.

  117. “Just ask all the dead people in Denver.”

    – They couldn’t find a single green card, but there were lots of Obama campaign buttons.

  118. Does Jon Stewart,still do that stupid ScoobyDoo
    “rwrhuh?”thing.
    Have’nt watched the show in years.

  119. “Most of the people I know are struggling to get by. Shall we just tax them out of existence so you can pick over the spoils?”

    You’re reading Obama’s mind, aren’t you?

  120. Palin should be laughingstock to all feminists

    While the Chicago Sun-Times, the “Progressive, Independent Conscience of the City,” should be a laughingstock to all competent reporters… ohpe… God love ‘em. What am I talkin’ about? I tell ‘ya what. Much like the Urban Spaceman, they don’t exist.

  121. “So this is like “The Apprentice” with Obama as “The Donald””

    Except that Obama doesn’t have a racoon on his head.

  122. BECAUSE OF THE SARAHCUDA!

    This does not evoke positive feelings in me for the winner. maybe a, “ummmm, well, that’s nice…”Popularity contests within academic circles are suspect on matters of actual substance. So much so that I laugh at all the elitists falling all over themselves to be recognized as affirming the chosen.

  125. Whoa, BMoe if you want you should call ICE. They are hyperresponsive. Just ask all the dead people in Denver.

    Hmmm…it seems they’re taking heat for being asleep at the switch.

  126. “Not just any popularity contest, but one amongst law school elite.”

    That would be the political supplicants to O!

    The group I was referring to are Journalism School grads. Which is probably the spinoff like “The Apprentice Celebrity Edition”, Episode 1, “In the Teeth of the Barracuda”.

  132. Had one of my local activist Dem friends over. We don’t discuss much politics and I’ve been keeping my yap shut even when he and his GF talk about Track getting his sis pregnant and shit like that.

    Today, he just pipes up and asked about Gibson’s interview. Reluctantly, I just said I thought it was an inquisition. He surprised me by saying he thought it was too and that he was even pissed about it.

    He doesn’t understand at all why she’s popular. I said ‘authenticity is what she brings’ and he was just ‘hunh?’ but I did my best to help him out.
    No, he doesn’t think she’s qualified, but neither does he think Obama or Clinton is, so who knows?

  133. He doesn’t understand at all why she’s popular. I said ‘authenticity is what she brings’ and he was just ‘hunh?’ but I did my best to help him out.

    I have had the same problem with a lot of my lefty friends, I point out the Marge Gunderson thing to them and its like a light going off. Never gave it much thought before, but it seems the Coen Brothers films transcend party lines.

  134. Dolly Parton is popular in Hillbilly Holler.

    Why? Can anyone give me just two reasons?

  135. I just gave him the old ‘governed by the first 100 names in the phonebook’ routine, which he said he agrees with, then asked him why the ‘party of the little guy’ is so set on destroying a little guy and electing an obvious elitist….

  136. I dunno, thor. Is she? I’m in deep-blue NY and never see any Dolly Parton stuff

    Yes, I’ve seen that one. Goosebumps at 1:20.

  138. urthshu

    ever see the movie “9 to 5″? And the musical is coming to Broadway next March. (Dolly wrote the music for both the movie’s theme and all the tunes in the musical)

  139. Darleen –
    Nope.

  140. Dolly Parton is popular in Hillbilly Holler.

    Why? Can anyone give me just two reasons?

    Talent and intelligence. Plus, she has more executive experience than Obama.

    I’ll give you that Obama’s a bigger boob.

  141. I love Dolly Parton. She’s the real deal I think. An American original and also a very nice person by all accounts almost always. Also her company produced Buffy. That makes her more importanter than Baracky even.

  142. I mean D Parton is just not on my screen at all. But that shouldn’t in any way concern you. If, as the troll implies, there is some cultural connection vis. Palin and Parton, well that just makes it worse for him, doesn’t it? B/c there isn’t a connection, really – Parton is Southern [to me], but Palin is Northern and we produce tough independent and practical women up here. Maybe not so much the men.

  143. “Why? Can anyone give me just two reasons?”

    – Sure thor. You’re stupid AND you’re ugly.

  144. Parton is Appalachian, that’s different than Southern, really. Don’t ask me how it just is.

  145. Dolly Parton is a human tit-muppet.

  146. Plus, she has more executive experience than Obama.

    She’s certainly a successful businesswoman.

  147. Parton is Appalachian, that’s different than Southern, really. Don’t ask me how it just is.

    It’s the r’s, happy.

    Suthin’ has sahft ahs.

    Appalachian has harRRRRd RRRRR’s.

    It’s the Scottish and Scotch-Irish ancestry.

  148. -“It’s the r’s, happy.”

    – I like her R’s too.

  149. No for real, Dolly Parton is not a human tit-muppet. I never got to meet her but my mom did when she stayed in our little town when she was filming Whorehouse with Mr. Burt Reynolds and mom said she wasn’t really dazzled by Burt and that he didn’t seem to be glad to be in our little hick town at all but she said Dolly was warm and sweet and very very gracious. You sure can’t say a bad word about Dolly Parton to my mom.

  150. Maybe you are getting her mixed up with Shania Twain?

  151. - No you’re right feets. She is a warm and gracious woman.

    – Everybody loves her R’s.

  152. Just so.

  153. - Bet she’s a Palin supporter, six ways to Sunday.

  154. I think Dolly is kind of one of those Democrat people but in a nice way.

  155. Everybody loves her R’s.

    I think the biggest I’ve ever seen is DD, myself.

  156. I’m just going to get Carin back for her Tool videos.

    Enjoy.

    Yeehaw.

  157. - Saw Blitzer on CNN this morning. Its still all about Palin, wall to wall. He had a Dem talking head on this morning, going on and on about how the polls suddenly don’t mean anything. She looked like she was in visible pain.

  158. - I’m a little surprised. CNN ran a piece debunking a lot of the bullshit lies and rumors the Left is spreading, showing they are both stupid and wrong.

    – Then they got to the one that sayd she “wants to teach creationism in schools.”

    – The announcer said. “Not quite.,,she thinks it shou;d be permissible to DISCUSS creationism in school.”

    – Oh gawd. Lets burn the Theocratic witch. Can’t have free speech in schools, unless maybe its about Marx or something really cool and intelligent.

  159. Parton is sharp, witty, gracious.

    Now I’m confused and self conscious about my rr’s. Maybe Tennesee and Virginia cancel each other out.

  160. I left an S out of Tennessee. Been away too long, I guess.

  161. “permissible to DISCUSS creationism in school.”

    Instruction time is limited. It could get in the way of mandatory instruction in prevention and treatment of STD’s, certainly in a half-day kindergarten.

  162. Dolly Parton is a prominent (!) expression of an American tradition that includes the song Yankee Doodle (and Dixie) and, currently, Jeff Foxworthy. The country music “scene” has adopted it as a primary theme since the Seventies. Parton’s on-stage persona is a sympathetic caricature of the Country Girl Moved to the City, and has always been appreciated as such. It owes a lot to Minnie Pearl. She writes a lot of the tit jokes her male co-performers deliver.

    Have you ever seen a picture of Dolly without makeup and costume? I promise you, you wouldn’t look twice at the short, dumpy little frump. In that persona she is a major philanthropist and a tireless worker for economic development in Appalachia who puts a lot of her money where her mouth is, unlike most of her detractors.

    I reckon she’d enjoy thor’s comment, recognizing it as part of the schtick she has spent so long developing and cultivating and closely related to the standard introductory line she encourages: “And here they are — Dolly Parton!” The fact that thor can’t figure out how it developed is simply a bonus.

    Regards,
    Ric

  163. “Comment by thor on 9/14 @ 10:03 am #

    Dolly Parton is a human tit-muppet.”

    Awwww, ain’t that cute!

    thor is jealous.

  164. NPR did the big polls are completely stupid and unreliable expose, too, right when Baracky started losing his grip. Made a big damn deal out of cell phones. You would think NPR listeners wouldn’t be that stupid but I think they find the cell phone thing really persuasive, even though that’s pretty idiotic. If it were true a lot of people would be out of work.

  165. Do you know shy Dolly Parton has such tiny feet?

    Things don’t grow well in the shade.

  166. “It takes a hell of a lot of money and effort to look this slutty, but every man I meet says they’re worth it.”

    – And Sarah. I’m sure everyone loves your R’s too.

  167. “they find the cell phone thing really persuasive”

    Let them find comfort where they can.

  168. It owes a lot to Minnie Pearl

    Oh geez, Ric, I’d almost forgotten her. I loved her cuz she could make me laugh and was a dead ringer (especially the way she talked) for my paternal grandma, Jeannette Click. A Mormon woman born in UT who, age 15 married my granddad, 21, and had two kids in the next two years. Fiesty was her middlename, widowed in her 40’s and fiercely independent and a watercolor artist.

    I’m always amazed how much dismissal and contempt the Beautiful People of NYC/DC/Frisco have for anyone outside their walled community. As if accents and humble beginnings are absolute indicators of intelligence and character.

  169. SarahW

    How are you feeling this morning, dear?

  170. Too funny… the blinkered Chicago Tribune doesn’t even count Baracky as a “national politician” it doesn’t seem.

    But if the Republicans hope to win, she will need to prove that electing her doesn’t create a risk. If it’s crucial that she not blink in the face of foreign challenges, it’s also important that she not quail at having to undergo frequent and thorough interrogation by the news media, as other national politicians do.

  171. - Parton is a pair of American institutions.

  172. “she not quail at having to undergo frequent and thorough interrogation by the news media, as other national politicians do.”

    Quail? Anyway:

    Ironically, the Hillary Clinton Forum published this list of the Obama questions:

    How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?
    How does it feel to “win”?
    How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling?
    Who will be your VP?
    Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
    Will you accept public finance?
    What issues is your campaign about?
    Will you visit Iraq?
    Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
    What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

    And the Palin questions:

    Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking? Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
    Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
    Questions about foreign policy
    -territorial integrity of Georgia
    -allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
    -NATO treaty
    -Iranian nuclear threat
    -what to do if Israel attacks Iran
    -Al Qaeda motivations
    -the Bush Doctrine
    -attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
    Is America fighting a holy war? [misquoted Palin]

  173. I’ve been a Dolly fan since she was with Porter Wagoner.

    Comparing Dolly to Obama is not fair to Obama. She beats him hands down.

  174. #175

    They have to adapt the questions to fit the abilities of the person who is answering.

    Those were some tough questions for him. Probably got some wrong I bet.

  175. Darleen, thanks for asking. DH is getting me coke syrup today.

    Less fever, but headache and one bad case of lazy.

  176. #177
    How, apart from a sudden attack of Tourette syndrome, can one gaff a question that begins with “How does it feel”?

  177. Ms. Parton is very charitable. http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/545-dolly-parton

    A good person, I think.

  178. #165 Ric Locke:

    And I think Mae West. ‘When I’m good, I’m good; when I’m bad I’m better.’

  179. Slartibartfast,
    That video just made me Gay,and not in the cool
    “Brad Pitt seduce’s and then ravishes me” way.

    It’s in the “Andrew Sullivan,quicki in the alley behind Mc Donalds” way.

    Tony
    South Haven,MI

  180. Thor has become boring.

  181. Tony, it was not my intention to make you gay. I don’t think you can go back.

  182. Damn, anyone got Brad Pitts number?

    Tony
    South Haven,MI

  183. McCain was e-mailing back in the 2000 campaign and is considered the most tech-savvy Senator.

    Yeah, the idea that a guy who flew Navy fighter jets 40 years ago is incapable or uninterested in keeping up with cutting edge technology is a bit of a stretch.

    Or, to put it another way, believing a trained carrier pilot is unable to comprehend what any 10 y.o. American girl can do is delusional.

    Obviously, Bush is merely the figure head for Republican Derangement Syndrome.

  184. Um, maybe 40-years ago isn’t the best of examples. Take another swing.

  185. BBH, #161-

    Oh gawd. Lets burn the Theocratic witch. Can’t have free speech in schools, unless maybe its about Marx or something really cool and intelligent.

    I saw that early this morning too, and noticed the same thing.

    If nothing else, for those that want to see, this campaign season is a tutorial for the way “journalists” frame their narrative to “help” the reader reach the correct conclusion.

  186. K thor, reread the italicized line at the top of #187.

    The point of referring to his history, is to help illustrate my doubt that he is the kind of person who would be bewildered by advances in technology, or lose interest in changes in technology, especially when the Senate ponders the problems presented by advancing technology.

    I put it two different ways, do you understand my point NOW? There’s a good boy, have a cookie.

  187. Are seriously trying to suggest lee that landing a jet in a thunderstorm at night, hitting a violently pitching target a couple hundred feet long while flying in high winds and zero visibility, are you going to try to tell thor that requires a higher level of technical prowess than getting petitions signed and communities organized?

    HE HAD TO GET PETITIONS SIGNED! ALONE! AT NIGHT, SOMETIMES!

  188. One time he forgot a pencil sharpener and had to USE A KNIFE! WITH HIS BARE HANDS!

  189. I’m guessing thor will trot out the nishi approved “senile due to incredible age” gambit, though it’s already overused and all encompassing enough to become old itself.

  190. My doctor is 71 tears old. I trust him with my health, although he has big, big fingers. According to the narrative, I should trust a first-year intern more, because of the hope and change?

  191. I can understand Randi Rhodes’s viewpoint. After all how many can claim to share her experiences of siffing cocaine off the backside of some lesbian whore like she can? How many of us can claim to have been to these kind of parties that Rhoes and her Hollywood pals attend after celebrating their upteenth release from some rehabilitation clinic?

    Thanks Rhodes you’ve contributed to Palin’s election and purging Obama’s sorry ass from American history.

    Its people like these that remind Americans just how crazed and hateful the Left truly is.

  192. To Randi & her fans:
    Get your heads out of your asses … OBAMA BIN BIDEN is a LOSER!

  193. Randi I really think your best work was when that small horse did your ass. You were great and I could really tell you enjoyed it much. Keep up your great work. ( Don’t let it bother you if you need to blow one of your neighbors kids again.)
