Reason #107

Filed under: Foreign Policy,Palin — btboondoggle @ 2:24 am

Everyone’s saying that Sarah Palin has no foreign policy experience.  Now hold on a minute!!  She spent several semesters in Moscow while in college!

Oh…  wait, that’s Moscow, Idaho.  Home of the University of Idaho.

My bad.

But you can see Russia from Alaska!

On a more serious note, Sarah Palin hasn’t been anywhere requiring a passport until last year.  Are we sure that we want her next in line to be president behind a 72 year old cancer survivor?  Even this GOP senator doubts her experience.

Omigod. This is like fifty reasons all at once.

Reason #105

Let’s compare their carbon footprints…  Barack Obama = Gecko, John McCain = Tyrannosaurus Rex. It’s clear who’s committed to a sustainable environmental policy for America, and who needs to “Drill baby, drill” in order to fill their 11+ gas tanks!

So many reasons, so little time!  So we’re adding a couple of new bloggers here at 300 reasons.  I’ll still be posting regularly, but we’ll have at least two additional authors popping in now and again.  I hope you’ll enjoy their ranting about John McCain as much as you’ve enjoyed mine 😉

Why I would vote for toenail fungus before I’d vote for John McCain

Well, this one is harder than justifying a vote for a llama. I mean, llamas are way cuter than toenail fungus.

However, I do feel that several arguments can be made for voting toenail fungus. First, it doesn’t have anger problems, and even if it did, I don’t think toenail fungus could get it together to pick up the red phone. Second, unlike John McCain, toenail fungus doesn’t have any advisers who were personally responsible for the mortgage crisis. And finally, toenail fungus isn’t bizarrely obsessed with the fundamentals of our economy being strong.

Filed under: Anti-Semitic,Palin — 300reasons @ 6:09 pm

I’m a little late on it, but this post from Thoughts From A Rabbi is worth reading in its entirety.

Apparently Sarah Palin was present when her church recently had the director of Jews for Jesus speak there.

Some of you may be unfamiliar with Jews for Jesus, so I’ll summarize. They’re a bunch of anti-Semitic Christians who go around trying to convert Jews to fundamentalist Christianity, primarily through deceptive advertising and overly aggressive pamphleteers. I don’t know about the Jewish voting bloc in (ahem, swing state) Florida, but my Jewish friends are not what I would call fans of the JFJ approach.

Palin did not walk out or protest when the speaker said the following:

Our Father in heaven, We stand before You as a people who’ve experienced Your grace, and we acknowledge that that grace was first extended to our people through Your people, the Jews; that there is not a one here in this room who would know Jesus and serve Him if there had not been a Jew, generations ago, that spoke Jesus’ name to our people. Father, that comes full circle and we wish to extend Your grace back to Your people. And we pray and we ask that as a result of this time here, and as a result of this offering, there will be people among the Jews today who come to say the name “Jesus” with faith. In His glorious name we pray, amen.

Okay, so she thinks Jewish people (and probably all non-Christians) are going to hell and need to be converted to Christianity in order to be saved. That’s not a big deal, right? I can’t imagine a belief like that have any impact on her policy decisions. Nothing to worry about!

She also remained silent and still when the speaker went on to say:

But what we see in Israel, the conflict that is spilled out throughout the Middle East, really which is all about Jerusalem, is an ongoing reflection of the fact that there is judgment. There is judgment that is going on in the land, and that’s the other part of this Jerusalem Dilemma.

In other words, G-d created the violence in Israel as judgment for Jewish peoples’ failure to be Christian.

Personally, I would march my ass out of church if someone said such a thing in the pulpit.

So why didn’t she?

Not only is John McCain a liar, he’s also a moron.

And here he is today, claiming that the economy is “strong.”

Damn straight he doesn’t know much about the economy.

John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar.

Oh, and John McCain? He’s a liar.

Reason #101

From The Curvature comes a great analysis of Sarah Palin’s involvement in charging rape victims in Wasilla for their own rape investigations, and her subsequent lying about that involvement:

You’ve probably read just about everywhere by now that while Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, the city billed rape victims the $1200 fee for their rape kits. Of course, Palin has tried to sidestep the question and insinuate that she had nothing, nothing at all, to do with this mess. This was clearly bullshit from day one, since the mayor of such a small town (my town is tiny and still has 2,500 more people in it than Wasilla) really has no excuse for not knowing what the fuck is going on in it.

(emphasis mine) 

As I’ve noted before, Wasilla is the same size as Bumpass, Virginia. One would assume that the mayor of such a tiny town would know what was going on there.

Considering that fact, it was already clear that Sarah Palin was lying about her involvement in charging rape victims for their rape kits (in case you’ve never heard of them, a rape kit is a kit used to collect evidence for prosecution after a sexual assault), but now we have proof. There is now a paper trail proving that Sarah Palin actively signed off on the switch from having the town cover rape investigations to the new policy of charging victims, and her claims to the contrary are outright lies.

Unfortunately, I don’t think a lot of men in politics understand what a big deal this could be for women voters (yep, even evangelical women).  I am afraid men who understand that John McCain=FAIL will miss an opportunity on this issue, because they don’t understand how visceral women’s feelings about sexual violence are.  This decision by Sarah Palin speaks to a lack of empathy on her part–it takes away from her false image as a woman “just like us,” and shows her to be quite a bit nastier than most women would be.  Further, the fact that she is lying about her involvement in this decision speaks even more to the fact that she and John McCain are liars. I hope people don’t stop talking about this.
