Your Pre-November Palin Vote (More Palin E-mail!)

This one is pretty self-explanatory, folks:

“Subj: PBS Poll on Palin – Please Vote 

PBS has a poll that asks: Is Sarah Palin qualified to be VP?
The Right is having masses of people vote that Palin is qualified. Let’s turn this around….. You don’t have to give your name or email address in order to vote. It’s very simple. Just CLICK and VOTE.

Palin’s Hacked Yahoo! Account

The question just begs to be asked:  Do Republicans/Conservatives really NOT understand the concept of irony, or does chronic hypocrisy just lead to a form of blindness?  Just watch the following two short segments from Messrs. O’Reilly and Hannity, and if you’re not laughing too hard, come on back for further detail.

Weren’t these the same bozos who were trying to blow off the whole (illegal) wiretapping, in violation of FISA laws, as much ado about nothing?  Wasn’t THAT all just a bunch of L-L-L-Liberal blathering?  And, wasn’t the argument at the time: “If you’re not doing anything wrong, then you have nothing to worry about.”?  Hmmm!  Now, I generally don’t watch these clowns all that often, and looking at Karl Rove (aka Baby Huey) just makes me physically ill, but I’d be willing to bet that these guys – just like some of my more conservative friends/relatives/coworkers – tried to argue that: the U.S. Constitution contains no express right to privacy.  So, this being the case, what is the major difference between some pencil-necked Federal geek listening into your phone calls or intercepting/reading your e-mails, under that very broad guise of “National Security”, and some pimply faced dweeb – probably living in his mom’s basement – hacking into someones Yahoo! e-mail account?  If Sarah Palin didn’t do anything wrong . . . then she has nothing to worry about.  Now, does she?  Are they afraid that there could be something damning in her e-mails?  Troopergate bombshells?  A possible list of books she was looking to ban?  Correspondences with some Alaska Secessionists?  Or, perhaps some kind of Rovian strategy e-mails, detailing how EVERYTHING in her life fit into their plan to win over the evangelical Christian fundamentalists, who had had strong reservations as to whether John McCain sufficiently met their requirements.  Hmmm! 

Now, check out the actual Gawker site, who had the chops to “publish” what this “anonymous” hacker came up with.  Scan down and read some of the comments that these Palin backers wrote in:

http://gawker.com/5051621/gawker-should-be-imprisoned-forever-says-everyone-except-lawyers

 

Wow!  What a classy bunch.  You know, for the party that believes in “family values” and the sanctity of man-woman relationships, they certainly have a strange fixation on a certain part of the human anatomy, the acts of sodomy, and issues of violence.  I’m sure that the Gawker people cherry-picked many/most of these comments, but still . . .  C’mon!

 

 

When they can’t dictate the terms they certainly DO seem to get their panties all in a twist, don’t they?  Isn’t all this faux OUTRAGE just peachy?

“White Privilege” (MORE Palin E-mails)

This is dated September 13, but I just received this, via e-mail, this afternoon.  Your uncle thinks it’s highly relevant and worthwhile!  Also, this Tim Wise guy (not “wise guy”) may be the only the only guy who’s both whiter and angrier than your uncle!  Enjoy!   YUR

This is Your Nation on White Privilege 

By Tim Wise 

 

For those who still can’t grasp the concept of white privilege, or who are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it, perhaps this list will help.

 

White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because “every family has challenges,” even as black and Latino families with similar “challenges” are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay. 

 

White privilege is when you can call yourself a “fuckin’ redneck,” like Bristol Palin’s boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone messes with you, you’ll “kick their fuckin’ ass,” and talk about how you like to “shoot shit” for fun, and still be viewed as a responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather than a thug.

 

White privilege is when you can attend four different colleges in six years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of, then returned to after making up some coursework at a community college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first place because of affirmative action.

 

White privilege is when you can claim that being mayor of a town smaller than most medium-sized colleges, and then Governor of a state with about the same number of people as the lower fifth of the island of Manhattan, makes you ready to potentially be president, and people don’t all piss on themselves with laughter, while being a black U.S. Senator, two-term state Senator, and constitutional law scholar, means you’re “untested.”

 

White privilege is being able to say that you support the words “under God” in the pledge of allegiance because “if it was good enough for the founding fathers, it’s good enough for me,” and not be immediately disqualified from holding office–since, after all, the pledge was written in the late 1800s and the “under God” part wasn’t added until the 1950s–while believing that reading accused criminals and terrorists their rights (because, ya know, the Constitution, which you used to teach at a prestigious law school requires it), is a dangerous and silly idea only supported by mushy liberals.

 

White privilege is being able to be a gun enthusiast and not make people immediately scared of you.

 

White privilege is being able to have a husband who was a member of an extremist political party that wants your state to secede from the Union, and whose motto was “Alaska first,” and no one questions your patriotism or that of your family, while if you’re black and your spouse merely fails to come to a 9/11 memorial so she can be home with her kids on the first day of school, people immediately think she’s being disrespectful.

 

White privilege is being able to make fun of community organizers and the work they do–like, among other things, fight for the right of women to vote, or for civil rights, or the 8-hour workday, or an end to child labor–and people think you’re being pithy and tough, but if you merely question the experience of a small town mayor and 18-month governor with no foreign policy expertise beyond a class she took in college–you’re somehow being mean, or even sexist.

 

White privilege is being able to convince white women who don’t even agree with you on any substantive issue to vote for you and your running mate anyway, because all of a sudden your presence on the ticket has inspired confidence in these same white women, and made them give your party a “second look.”

 

White privilege is being able to fire people who didn’t support your political campaigns and not be accused of abusing your power or being a typical politician who engages in favoritism, while being black and merely knowing some folks from the old-line political machines in Chicago means you must be corrupt.

 

White privilege is being able to attend churches over the years whose pastors say that people who voted for John Kerry or merely criticize George W. Bush are going to hell, and that the U.S. is an explicitly Christian nation and the job of Christians is to bring Christian theological principles into government, and who bring in speakers who say the conflict in the Middle East is God’s punishment on Jews for rejecting Jesus, and everyone can still think you’re just a good church-going Christian, but if you’re black and friends with a black pastor who has noted (as have Colin Powell and the U.S. Department of Defense) that terrorist attacks are often the result of U.S. foreign policy and who talks about the history of racism and its effect on black people, you’re an extremist who probably hates America.

 

White privilege is not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is when asked by a reporter, and then people get angry at the reporter for asking you such a “trick question,” while being black and merely refusing to give one-word answers to the queries of Bill O’Reilly means you’re dodging the question, or trying to seem overly intellectual and nuanced.

 

White privilege is being able to claim your experience as a POW has anything at all to do with your fitness for president, while being black and experiencing racism is, as Sarah Palin has referred to it a “light” burden.

 

And finally, white privilege is the only thing that could possibly allow someone to become president when he has voted with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time, even as unemployment is skyrocketing, people are losing their homes, inflation is rising, and the U.S. is increasingly isolated from world opinion, just because white voters aren’t sure about that whole “change” thing. Ya know, it’s just too vague and ill-defined, unlike, say, four more years of the same, which is very concrete and certain…

 

White privilege is, in short, the problem.”

Palin Wins *Prestigious* Rubber Dodo Award!

The Vagina . . . Gag Rules?

This comes from ANOTHER Palin e-mail that I received just late last evening.  It was purportedly written by Eve Ensler, playwright/author of The Vagina Monologues.  (If McCain/Palin prevail . . . I wonder if that piece would be banned?)  This is mainly directed to the ladies, but I think we can all take something away from it.   YUR

“Subject: Eve Ensler on Sarah Palin

EVE ENSLER
Drill, Drill, DrillI am having Sarah Palin nightmares. I dreamt last night that she was a
member of a club where they rode snowmobiles and wore the claws of drowned
and starved polar bears around their necks. I have a particular thing for
Polar Bears. Maybe it’s their snowy whiteness or their bigness or the fact
that they live in the arctic or that I have never seen one in person or
touched one. Maybe it is the fact that they live so comfortably on ice.
Whatever it is, I need the polar bears.


I don’t like raging at women. I am a Feminist and have spent my life trying
to build community, help empower women and stop violence against them. It is
hard to write about Sarah Palin. This is why the Sarah Palin choice was all
the more insidious and cynical. The people who made this choice count on the
goodness and solidarity of Feminists.


But everything Sarah Palin believes in and practices is antithetical to
Feminism which for me is part of one story — connected to saving the earth,
ending racism, empowering women, giving young girls options, opening our
minds, deepening tolerance, and ending violence and war.


I believe that the McCain/Palin ticket is one of the most dangerous choices
of my lifetime, and should this country chose those candidates the fall-out
may be so great, the destruction so vast in so many areas that America may
never recover. But what is equally disturbing is the impact that duo would
have on the rest of the world. Unfortunately, this is not a joke. In my
lifetime I have seen the clownish, the inept, the bizarre be elected to the
presidency with regularity.


Sarah Palin does not believe in evolution. I take this as a metaphor. In her
world and the world of Fundamentalists nothing changes or gets better or
evolves. She does not believe in global warming. The melting of the arctic,
the storms that are destroying our cities, the pollution and rise of
cancers, are all part of God’s plan. She is fighting to take the polar bears
off the endangered species list. The earth, in Palin’s view, is here to be
taken and plundered. The wolves and the bears are here to be shot and
plundered. The oil is here to be taken and plundered. Iraq is here to be
taken and plundered. As she said herself of the Iraqi war, “It was a task
from God.”


Sarah Palin does not believe in abortion. She does not believe women who are
raped and incested and ripped open against their will should have a right to
determine whether they have their rapist’s baby or not.


She obviously does not believe in sex education or birth control. I imagine
her daughter was practicing abstinence and we know how many babies that
makes.


Sarah Palin does not much believe in thinking. From what I gather she has
tried to ban books from the library, has a tendency to dispense with people
who think independently. She cannot tolerate an environment of ambiguity and
difference. This is a woman who could and might very well be the next
president of the United States. She would govern one of the most diverse
populations on the earth.


Sarah believes in guns. She has her own custom Austrian hunting rifle. She
has been known to kill 40 caribou at a clip. She has shot hundreds of wolves
from the air.


Sarah believes in God. That is of course her right, her private right. But
when God and Guns come together in the public sector, when war is declared
in God’s name, when the rights of women are denied in his name, that is the
end of separation of church and state and the undoing of everything America
has ever tried to be.


I write to my sisters. I write because I believe we hold this election in
our hands. This vote is a vote that will determine the future not just of
the U.S., but of the planet. It will determine whether we create policies to
save the earth or make it forever uninhabitable for humans. It will
determine whether we move towards dialogue and diplomacy in the world or
whether we escalate violence through invasion, undermining and attack. It
will determine whether we go for oil, strip mining, coal burning or invest
our money in alternatives that will free us from dependency and destruction.
It will determine if money gets spent on education and healthcare or whether
we build more and more methods of killing. It will determine whether America
is a free open tolerant society or a closed place of fear, fundamentalism
and aggression.


If the Polar Bears don’t move you to go and do everything in your power to
get Obama elected then consider the chant that filled the hall after Palin
spoke at the RNC, “Drill Drill Drill.” I think of teeth when I think of
drills. I think of rape. I think of destruction. I think of domination. I
think of military exercises that force mindless repetition, emptying the
brain of analysis, doubt, ambiguity or dissent. I think of pain.


Do we want a future of drilling? More holes in the ozone, in the floor of
the sea, more holes in our thinking, in the trust between nations and
peoples, more holes in the fabric of this precious thing we call life?”

Sarah Palin (The Magilla from Wasilla!)- A Perspective

When John McCain first made his announcement that he had chosen the little known Sarah Palin, to be his running mate, I was as surprised as anybody.  Heck, you could’ve knocked me over with the proverbial feather.  Now, I had fully expected that he would choose a woman.  To me, it made the most sense.  It kills two birds with one stone.  First thing is, you essentially counter Obama’s “first”, and secondly, you stand a very good chance of drawing off a significant number of the disgruntled Hillary crowd.  But, these are the women that I was thinking of:  

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, of Texas.  She was already a “first” in her field – female Senator of Texas, and she’s got a resume – she’s got history – she’s got chops.  

I was also thinking of Olympia Snowe, of Maine.  Another known commodity, who commands great respect around the country.  You also get the extreme Northeast to the Southwest – spanning the U.S – with a ticket like that!  

I even thought they might give Condi a shot!  High-profile/recognition – DING!  Female – DING, DING!!  Black – DING, DING, DING!!!  She’s attractive, and undeniably – even though,  as an unabashed liberal this pains me – intelligent.  I guess the biggest drawback there was the Bush association.  With a 70% DISapproval rating I guess they just couldn’t afford to go there.  

So, we all got blind-sided by his choosing this pretty li’l thang, from . . . Alaska???  Did Johnny blow a gasket?  Did he forget to take his meds that morning?  What IS the deal, here?  Virtually, nobody knows this . . . this chippy.  She has zippo national/international experience.  And, compared to John, she looks like a teenager!  And then, a number of disturbing – but not necessarily Earth shattering – negatives were leaked/brought to light about the New Wonder Woman.  Namely, a couple of abuse of power investigations, hints that she sought to ban some books, and the revelation that her 17 year old, unwed, high school senior daughter was 5 months pregnant . . . and was going to have the child.  Pure fodder.  Pure – and intentional – distraction, in my opinion.  (More on this later.)  So, what was McCain thinking? 

Now, I’ve heard some, like Time Magazine’s Joe Klein, say that she was McCain’s 3rdchoice.  Apparently, the RNC wanted to shove Mitt Romney down McCain’s throat.  This makes absolutely NO sense to me, considering Romney’s total FLIP-FLOP on abortion.  I give John credit for being smart enough not to allow them to take him there.  Supposedly, McCain wanted two guys that the RNC put the kibosh on.  Joe Lieberman, because he’s a prick/traitor – maybe not the reason the RNC didn’t want him, but I’ve ALWAYS wanted to say that in print – and Pennsylvania’s very respectable Tom Ridge.  Why the RNC wouldn’t jump at the chance of these two powerhouses is beyond me.  So, they’re not staunch Pro-Lifers!  They ARE credible, known commodities.  No, I’m not buying this 3rdchoice business . . . not for a nano-second! 

I think this whole deal has the overpowering stench of Karl Rove.  Yeah, yeah, I know.  He’s now just a political analyst . . . on FOX News.  Ri-i-ight.  But, as long as this guy is breathing . . . as long as he’s not six feet under, or in an urn on somebody’s mantle, do you REALLY think that he’s not involved in this process . . . in some way?  Who better than Rove to come up with the scheme of partnering dear old John with the: young and attractive, NRA supporting, drill any/everywhere for oil and gas, Washington “outsider”, poster child for Anti-Choice?  Rove knows, very well, how telegenic she is.  She has a Bachelors of Science degree in Communications-Journalism from the University of Idaho, and she worked as a sports reporter on KTUU-TV, for two years.  Television “journalists” are more trained actor than journalist.  She knows how to feign concern and sincerity, and enthusiasm/perkiness . . . while on camera.  Rove and the RNC feel they have the New and Improved “Great Communicator”! 

No.  This wasn’t a John McCain senior moment, and this most likely was NOT a 3rd choice.  This is their version of “the total package”.  A youthful, physically attractive female, with a family straight out of the Lands End catalog, with all the “family values” that the evangelical Christian fundamentalist/religious right (extremists) is (are) looking for.  And, don’t worry about the national/international “experience” thing.  John’s got that covered.  I’m not sure that “compliment each other” is the best descriptor for these two, but they do kind of balance each other well.  C’mon!  We’ve all seen how the cynical and calculating Republican power brokers operate.  They don’t make mistakes.  They make people see what they want them to see.  They’re the masters of smoke and mirrors.  No, this was very carefully planned.  I am certain of it.

Sarah Palin E-mail

The following is the text of an e-mail that I received last night @ 8:44 PM, EDT.  This was prior to the speech/address made by the Republican Vice President nominee, Sarah Palin.  I wrote to one of the original recipients (one of the “classmates”) to find out if I could specifically attribute the originating source.  Due to the fact that this secondary person has already received “vitriolic emails from people whom I don’t know at all”, as a result of her forwarding this, it has been determined that only the writer’s first name and last initial should be used.   —   Your Uncle Rave

anyone — from Pat

Dear classmates –

As an Alaskan, I am writing to give all of you some information on Sarah Palin, Senator McCain’s choice for VP. As an Alaska voter, I know more than most of you about her and, frankly, I am horrified that he picked her.

The most accurate description of her is red neck. Her husband works in the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay and races snow mobiles. She is a life time member of the NRA and has worked tirelessly to allow indiscriminate hunting of wildlife in Alaska, particularly wolves and bears. She has spent millions of Alaska state dollars on aerial hunting of these predators from helicopters and airplanes, dollars that should have been spent, for example, on Alaska‘s failing school system. We have the lowest rate of high school graduation in the country. Not all of you may think aerial predator hunting is so bad, but how anyone (other than Alaska wolf-haters, of which there are many, most without teeth), could think this use of funds is appropriate is beyond me. If you want to know more about the aerial hunting travesty, let me know and I will send some links to informative web sites.

She has been a strong supporter of increased use of fossil fuels, yet the McCain campaign has the nerve to say she has “green” policies. The only thing green about Sarah Palin is her lack of experience. She has consistently supported drilling in ANWR, use of coal-burning power plants (as I write this, a new coal plant is being built in her home town of Wasilla), strip mining, and almost anything else that will
unnecessarily exploit the diminishing resources of
Alaska
and destroy
its environment.

Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska, she was mayor of Wasilla, a small red neck town outside Anchorage. The average maximum education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade.  Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Palin in office in the first place. I know what I’m talking about.  These people don’t have a concept of the world around them or of the
serious issues facing the
US
. Furthermore, they don’t care. So long as they can go out and hunt their moose every fall, kill wolves and bears and drive their snow mobiles and ATVs through every corner of the wilderness, they’re happy. I wish I were exaggerating.

Sarah Palin is currently involved in a political corruption scandal.  She fired an individual in law enforcement here because she didn’t like how he treated one of her relatives during a divorce. The man’s performance and ability weren’t considered; it was a totally personal firing and is currently under investigation. While the issue isn’t
close to the scandal of Ted Steven’s corruption, it shows that Palin isn’t “squeaky clean” and causes me to think there may be more issues that could come to light. Clearly McCain doesn’t care.

When you line Palin up with Biden, the comparison would be laughable if it weren’t so serious. Sarah Palin knows nothing of economics (admittedly a weak area for McCain), or of international affairs, knows nothing of national government, Social Security, unemployment, health care systems – you name it. The idea of her meeting with heads of foreign governments around the world truly frightens me.

In an increasingly dangerous world, with the economy in shambles in the US, Sarah Palin is uniquely UNqualified to be vice president. John McCain is not a young man. Should something happen to him such that the vice president had to step in, it would destroy our country and possibly the world to have someone as inexperienced and inappropriate as Sarah Palin. The choice of Palin is a cheap shot by McCain to try
to get Hillary supporters to vote for him. when McCain introduced her today, Palin had the nerve to compare herself with Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro. Sarah Palin, you are no Hillary Clinton.

To those of you who, like me, supported Hillary and were upset that she did not get the nomination, please don’t think that Sarah Palin is a worthy substitute. If you supported Hillary, regardless of what you think the media and the democratic party may have done to undermine her campaign, the person to support now is Obama, not Sarah Palin. To those of you who are independent or undecided, don’t let the choice of Palin sway you in favor of McCain. Choosing her shows how unqualified
McCain is to be president. To those of you who are conservative, I guess you have no choice for president. But please try to see how the poor choice of Palin tells us a great deal about McCain’s judgment. While the political posturing inherent in the choice of Palin is obvious, the more serious issue is the fact that the VP is, literally,
a heartbeat away from the presidency. Sarah Palin is totally and unequivocally unqualified to be vice president, let alone president.

I know this is a lengthy and emotional email, but the stakes are high.  I thought it might help for all of you, regardless of political affiliation, to know something about Palin from someone who has to live with her administration in Alaska on a daily basis.

Here’s some basic background from MoveOn.org:
    * She was elected Alaska‘s governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside  Anchorage.1
    * Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of  rape or incest.2
    * She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in  2000. 3
    * Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.4
    * She’s doesn’t think humans are the cause of climate change.5
    * She’s solidly in line with John McCain’s “Big Oil first” energy policy. She’s pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won’t be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species ­she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska.6

Here’s a sample of Alaskan’s responses:

She is really just a mayor from a small town outside Anchorage who has been a governor for only 1.5 years, and has ZERO national and international experience. I shudder to think that she could be the person taking that 3AM call on the White House hotline, and the one who could potentially be charged with leading the US in the volatile international scene that exists today. ­Rose M., Fairbanks, AK

She is VERY, VERY conservative, and far from perfect. She’s a hunter and fisherwoman, but votes against the environment again and again. She ran on ethics reform, but is currently under investigation for several charges involving hiring and firing of state officials. She has NO experience beyond Alaska. ­Christine B., Denali Park, AK

As an Alaskan and a feminist, I am beyond words at this announcement.  Palin is not a feminist, and she is not the reformer she claims to be.  ­Karen L., Anchorage, AK

Alaskans, collectively, are just as stunned as the rest of the nation. She is doing well running our State, but is totally inexperienced on the national level, and very much unequipped to run the nation, if it came to that. She is as far right as one can get, which has already been communicated on the news. In our office of thirty employees (dems, republicans, and nonpartisans), not one person feels she is ready for the
V.P. position.­ Sherry C., Anchorage, AK

She’s vehemently anti-choice and doesn’t care about protecting our natural resources, even though she has worked as a fisherman. McCain chose her to pick up the Hillary voters, but Palin is no Hillary. ­Marina L., Juneau, AK


I think she’s far too inexperienced to be in this position. I’m all for a woman in the White House, but not one who hasn’t done anything to deserve it. There are far many other women who have worked their way up and have much more experience that would have been better choices. This is a patronizing decision on John McCain’s part- and insulting to females everywhere that he would assume he’ll get our vote by putting “A Woman” in that position.­ Jennifer M.,
Anchorage, AK

Feel free to send this on to anyone you’d like!!  Lecke”

 

I’ll be posting my personal thoughts on John McCain’s selection very soon.   YUR
