A Government of National Unity

posted by on October 17 at 16:25 PM

Maybe Joe Biden can be Vice President of the United States of America and Sarah Palin can be the Vice President of the United States of Pro-America?

Palin also made a point of mentioning that she loved to visit the “pro-America” areas of the country, of which North Carolina is one. No word on which states she views as unpatriotic.

Seriously? Some piece of scary-ass shit drops out of that woman’s mouth every damn day.

The AP has dropped and pretense and have included unfiltered quotes from Palin lately.

"Being here with all of you hardworking, very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation" was her actual quote according to the 'Biden Mocks Palin...' story on the wire.

Commas for emphasis, I'm sure.

Maybe she doesn't like amateur-America. Y'know, like Puerto Rico and American Samoa: places that couldn't get of their lazy butts to add another star to the flag.

It's time to vote for Democracy.

And yes, that means using the D word.

Most of us know Nazis through movie portrayals of them, wherein they are usually depicted as masterminds of evil cunning. Real-life Nazis actually tend to be breathtakingly banal, not-terribly-cunning brutes who happen to be good at feeding pissed-off crowds the kind of easy answers and self-righteous vitriol they long to hear.

What's the difference between Palin's mouth and her vagina?

Only some of what comes out of her vagina is retarded.

Indeed, every day. Every day Sarah gives us some new and better gift. Have you ever had a lover so thoughtful that week after week you got a beautiful surprise every single day? There is nothing like this woman, anywhere. I'm going to miss Sarah.

Does Sarah mean "pro-" as in "professional" or "pro" as in "prostitute"?

Pro-America=small towns. How do small towns stay small? The smart people leave for the city at the same or higher rate that hockey players are knocking up their girlfriends

If North Carolina goes for Obama would Sarah Palin still consider it pro-America?

It really is too bad Jesse Helms didn't live long enough to see not only a black president but one who received North Carolina's electoral votes. I would have loved to have seen his head explode.

There was a time where all parts of America were pro-American.

Small towns are, sadly, the only places where loyal traditionalists still reside. You won't find any pot smokers or hippies who spit on our brave troops or sexual deviants there.

Thank God for Christian patriots like Sarah Palin.

Confused. Is "small town" code for "straight" or "white?"

Posted by superfrankenstein | October 17, 2008 8:53 PM

Is Lord Basil a parody or the real thing? I can't tell.

The Sarah Palin saga seems more surreal by the minute.

How could this dippy dingbat have gotten this far?

...because Republicans allow only the dimmest of the dim, the faithful, into their "town meetings."

Caribou Barbie doesn't have a clue what real patriotism means.

I am voting that he is a : Parody.

@13, he gives me an Oscar Wilde vibe. I vote parody.

Sadly I think her comments are just symptomatic of the right's view of America. Just like them getting all bent out of shape about Obama standing in front of the Ohio state flag ( As long as it suits them, the facts can be damned.

By "pro-America," does she mean successionist, like Alaska and Texas?

Posted by UnCommonSense | October 18, 2008 12:38 AM

She was in my town, Lancaster, PA, today. I stood across the street with the Planned Parenthood people and held up my protest sign. It was one of the most unpleasant experiences of my life.

You are a leftist baby killing traitor.

Posted by Lord Basil | October 18, 2008 8:43 AM

Aw, Basil, you're so cute when you spout reactionary nonsense.

Posted by Greg | October 18, 2008 9:37 AM

Pro-America huh? Well, I guess since Palin and the rest of the real Americans don't want anti-american states then we don't want to support your economy. I guess we can collectively just stop spending money on non-essential items like cars and other things and then crash your economy. Good luck with stimulating your economy. Maybe you real americans can each spend double your disposable income to stimulate your economy. When your car dealerships, retail stores, and other places start claiming bankruptcies and you come begging to us to buy I suspect most of us will say screw you until you offer really big rebates. Maybe your big mouths and your one sentence ideologies will result in people opening their wallets. not.

Posted by the troll | October 18, 2008 4:48 PM

LOL, Dan that is definitely the truth.

Posted by Robin L. | October 18, 2008 7:58 PM
