They just gave their new child two
middle names. Why two? Because, they wanted the second
one to be Van. Why? Because they thought it would be
cute to have their child's name be Van Palin. You know, it
sounds like Van Halen. Funny, huh?
No, I didn't make this up.
Let the right-wing propaganda machine
that dominates the media play their victimization routine and claim
it is simply unfair and wrong to question her readiness for the most
important, complex office on the planet. However, this is The
Moderate Independent, and we only speak truth here. And the
truth we learned today is that John McCain is a fucking idiot who
just put our nation at risk for the sake of trying to get enough
votes from idiots to get his repeatedly cancerous self in the White
How fucking dare McCain put the world in
jeopardy like this.
Oh yeah, let me not state the obvious.
How dare I say that this small town, inexperienced bimbo, who has
used her brief time in the Governorship of snowland to, yes, act out
a Jerry Springer-like saga of using her power of office to attack
her sister's lyin', cheatin', no good ex-trailer hubby, isn't ready
to handle the pinnacle of power for the planet.
How dare I, especially when on CNN
tonight the woman who took over her spot as Mayor of the small ass
frozen Alaska villa of Wasilla said tonight, when asked if Palin was
ready to be President, "Sure, she'll surround herself with lots of
Note, she didn't say, "She's so smart,"
or, "She always talks about world affairs," or, "She will pick up
and understand things quickly."
Let's go ahead and actually look at her
record for a second. They brag she was Mayor of Wasilla.
Well, here are some stats from the city.
According to the Wikipedia entry on the
city, in 2000, "67% of families were below the poverty line."
Wow, not bad, there were actually a few
that made it above poverty. Let's celebrate by taserin' our
Oh yeah, and women will love this stat:
In Wasilla, "Males had a median income of $41,300 versus $29,100 for
Nice! Hey, now it makes sense why
Palin called Hillary Clinton "a whiner" during the primaries.
Because obviously she is used to, in the city she ran, people saying
things like, "Listen, sugar tits, don't be whining about making more
than 25% less than Bill - you have a vag, you ain't worth the same."
Honestly, I wouldn't trust this chick to
babysit my kids. Naming her kid Van Palin? A husband who
didn't finish college, but heck, he rides snowmobiles really,
really, really far? A sister who marries a guy who tasers his
own kin, drives drunk - and Palin and her husband repeatedly calling
and filing complaints against him that are dismissed? Like 14
14 times? When the fuck will she
learn what Pakistan, Russia, China, India, Venzuela, Bin Laden, and
other threats are up to if, on top of having 5 kids, including a new
one with Down Syndrome, she spends her time making repeated grudge
calls on behalf of her sister? Oh yeah, this was priority one
when she got in office as well, using the Governor's office to
continue the white trash battle for her sister by trying to get the
ex-hubby fired (for which she is now under investigation.)
She claimed in her VP-slot acceptance
speech today that as Mayor of Wasilla she cut wasteful spending.
The town has 6,500 people. How much fucking spending could
there be? You could probably follow every single dollar
personally, pay all the bills in ones. You can cut spending in
half by making staff bring their own coffee. I mean what was
the fucking budget of this unpopulated ice town? Oh, hey,
$12.7 million. About the size of a department - a small one -
in say, a hospital. Wow, she helped cut some costs from a
Hey, let's make her a manager of the new
hospital in the city,
Mat-Su Regional Medical Center,
not fucking President. Oh, wait, the hospital is actually
outside the city limits, between W-town and another remote outpost
of poverty and sexist pay I guess. Town's not big enough to
support a whole hospital apparently.
And this chick is going to deal with the
entire health care situation of the United States?
Wait, she deals with a bigger budget now
in her little over a year as Governor. Well, how big is that
budget: Click on
to find out. No, that "not found" error doesn't mean I put the
wrong link - that is the link to Management and Budget from
website (go to
and click on Management and Budget yourself if you want to
experience the magical, missing budget page yourself.)
Well, I don't know if she can manage the
state's budget - apparently she can't even manage the state's budget
Yeah, so let's like give her the whole
budget of the country to handle. Awesome.
Ok, let's give her another chance.
She has another link for the FY '08 Enacted Budget. Let's
click on that and... nope, another "The Page Cannot Be Found."
Well, at least we know a place for the page exists by the link info:
http://gov.state.ak.us/omb/08_OMB/budget/index.htm Yep, 08
OMB. Sounds like where a web page with this year's budget
stuff should be. Followed by /budget. That would be the
place. Well, she's only been in office a year and a half, and
she's been busy during that time trying to get her ex-brother-in-law
fired. Let's give her a chance to figure out complex things
like having a webpage put up.
What a commander, what a manager - can't
get a fucking IT person to pop a damned web page up. And she's
going to manage the entire nation? Right.
She's led a focused life, though.
Degree in journalism. Beauty Pageants. Marrying someone
without a degree. Running marathons. Shooting guns.
Her deep interests, according to her official Governor website, are,
"enjoys hunting, fishing, Alaska history, and all that Alaska's
great outdoors has to offer."
Is this a singles ad or a fucking
Ok, she did some sports broadcasting.
WTF? Beauty pageants. Excuse me? She claims Global
Warming is a hoax, wants Creationism taught in schools, opposes
abortion even in the cases of rape or incest, and claims, despite
those damned fact things, that we can solve our energy problem with
a lil' drillin' and a big tube across Canada so we can import
Ok, the Alaska pipeline thing is a good
thing, eh? After achieving that, she must have taken that
experience and grown from it, eh?
Well, she may, but thing is, this key
highlight to her virtually non-existent resume - the passage of the
pipeline thing - just occurred on August 3, 2008. In other
words, when McCain started considering VP candidates, she didn't
even have her one talking point yet.
Um, just a thought: maybe we
should give it a full month and see how her first actual resume line
holds up and plays out. A couple years down the road, if the
thing is actually built and turns out to be a good thing, then we
can compliment her. But, um, this was just 2 1/2 weeks ago!
And this is all she has to brag about as her credentials?
The rest of you poor people in the
non-Moderate Independent media, I feel as bad for you as I do for
the workin' women and poor poverty-struck families of Wasilla.
Unlike me, you can't just say the obvious: Sarah Palin, nice
tits, not even remotely ready for the White House.
Nor can you say this other part:
John McCain, you have betrayed your country. If you win, you
have put our very existence at risk. So, please, tell us, what
did she really do for you during the one visit you spent with her?
It must have been pretty damned good - one visit, and you sacrifice
the whole free world to get the chance to have her by your side.
Now back to the rest of the media, where
they will bite their tongues and say, "Sure, she's a fine choice, an
No she's fucking not, she's a rack with
glasses. Aren't you, sugar tits?
