    Yes, there have been a lot of racists coming out..I've heard quite a few people referring to blacks as "Obamas", well I guess I would rather be referred to as an "Obama" than a "Palin".

    Madam Former Governor, have you no shame.

    Obama was the tipping point for the racists. They see 'their America' changing, meaning minorities are increasing in numbers and the balance of power is being shared, and they see it as a threat to their very existence. Plus, Obama doesn't fit into their typical stereotype of a black man, so they don't know how to deal with him.
    Well said. Sarah Palin is the spokesperson for this crowd.

    Until Obama was elected the presidency was the last bastion of what the racists deemed 'white America.' Once he was elected the racists felt like their very existence was being challenged and that the 'evil minorities' are finally taking over the country. So, the racists feel as if they can let their racism fly without any punishment. They think that they can turn the hands of Time back to the Jim Crow days, but what they forget is that time only moves forward, not backwards.
    Exactly, ITA.

Both groups benefit from creating these stupid, radical situations... the Republicans can unleash their pitbull supporters are say, "hey, not my fault" when it goes over the line and the citizens can express their racism through their extreme opposition to Obama's proposals. It's the Republican policy of "be an asshole until you get what you want" permeating society on a smaller level. Street conservatism... putting the job of fighting dirty into the hands of the fundies and racists.

    Sarah is a good example of these spiteful Republicans... she has the sheeple to carry out her work and the support of fellow crazy politicians. Using her disabled kid as a pawn in this stupid revenge game is so fucked up.

    *obviously does not apply to all Republicans opposed to these policies.
    She is disgusting, but then, that should not be a surprise anymore. The only
    way she will shut up is when she drops off the planet. I don't even believe
    she is all that political, it's just whomever gives her a platform, that's all she
    - being the attention whore that she is - needs.
    Unfortunately there are A LOT of sheeple around. Seeing the images of
    disrupted Town Hall meetings on Health Care Reform makes me shake my
    head. It's obviously an organized movement of hecklers who are just there
    to make noise, not to ask questions or have a coherent discussion to actually
    inform themselves. It's the first amendment gone haywire.

    Um Earth to Sarah Palin (and all other idiots spouting lies about national healthcare):

    You already do stand before a panel waiting to see if you'll get covered for nearly anything that goes wrong with you.

    How often do you hear people bitching about things not being covered? Using up your lifetime allotment on cancer?

    Being turned away because you have something wrong with you (pre-existing condition).

    There is no difference between the government making the healthcare shots, and your current HMO. No difference.

    In both senarious you get NO CHOICE, you don't really have a vote in any of it.

    So why all the bawling and crying and scare tactics? Makes no sense.

    The people are crippled and helpless in either senario.

    The one wee bit of difference is HMO's are raping people, and people are deriving little benefit.

    See my thread "Fascist America: Are We There Yet?" The thugs/brownshirts are being 'deputized' and sanctioned by Conservative elites who are enraged that they have lost power. They will regain it by whatever means necessary. Hitler used the brownshirts to intimidate and cow the populace, and so will the GOP.

    Why do you think there are no arrests being made of these thugs, when peaceful progressive demonstrators are routinely arrested and harrassed by authorities?

You would think he was standing in front of them strangling their baby with the way these people are responding, like angry pitbulls on a leash. I've seen a huge increase in people using racist terms, hatred towards anyone "different", etc. It makes me so freaking angry to watch those town hall meetings where these ignorant assholes are disrupting the whole thing and not allowing anyone to talk. This was supposed to be informative, not a place where people can just scream and start violence and yell over everyone so no one gets a chance to be heard.

    Yes, things are getting much much worse, and I blame many of these conservatives in positions of power. I do give kudos to John McCain, who came out and said that these town hall meetings were not conducive and that people need to stop yelling and being violent - but he's the only prominent Republican I've heard thats come out and spoke against it. Thats pretty damn sad. I'm speaking as an Independent here - do you think any of these good Republicans are ashamed of their party right now? I sure as hell hope some of them are seeing a huge segment of their party for what they are - xenophobic, racist, and hateful.
    Oh January, I can so relate. I received an e-mail from a very old pal a few weeks back, praising the teabaggers and ranting on about health care reform. I couldn't believe my eyes! This person had been a strong critic of Bush and I thought we were on the same page. Turns out a black man in the Oval Office is just too much for some people to deal with.

    Dumb bitch won't shut up:
    A Message to Alaskans about the Stimulus Veto and the Health Care Town Halls

    Today at 7:33pm

    Tomorrow begins an important week for Alaskans.

    On Monday, state lawmakers will meet to override my veto of stimulus funds. As Governor, I did my utmost to warn our legislators that accepting stimulus funds will further tie Alaska to the federal government and chip away at Alaskaís right to chart its own course. Enforcing the federal building code requirements, which Governor Parnell and future governors will be forced to adopt in order to accept these energy funds, will eventually cost the state more than it receives. There are clear ropes attached, and Alaskans will soon find themselves tied down by codes which will dictate how we build and renovate homes and businesses. The state has hundreds of millions of dollars already budgeted for conservation, weatherization and renewable energy development. Legislators donít need to play politics as usual and accept these funds and the ropes that come with them.

    Also this week, Alaskans will join Senators Murkowski and Begich in town hall meetings to discuss the current health care legislation. There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment. Such tactics diminish our nationís civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious votersí passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying. Letís not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us.

    - Sarah Palin

    The stupidity is numbing...
    Don't Need To Be a Rocket Scientist

    Once you thoroughly unfasten yourself from reality, truly all things are possible.

    AJC columnist Jay Bookman noticed that in the latest Investors Business Daily editorial about how the 'death panel' will condemn all handicapped or disabled people to death on some horrid wind-swept mountain, it notes that ...
    People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless.
    Needless to say, Hawking, who is recognized as one of the great theoretical physicists of the 20th and 21st century, was born in the UK and has lived his entire life there.

    Since Palin chose to abandon ship as Governor she shouldn't be complaining about anything that goes on with the Alaskan government.

    CONSERVATIVES SLAM PALIN ATTACK AS 'CRAZY'

    Newt Gingrich told a national television audience this morning that Sarah Palin's "death panel" argument is fair and legitimate. I should note, in fairness to other conservatives, that others on the right have not been as kind to the former Alaska governor.

    On "Meet the Press" this morning, David Brooks called Palin's attack "crazy," adding that "the crazies are attacking the plan because it will cut off granny. That is simply not true, that simply is not going to happen."

    Similarly, Rep. Jack Kingston (R) of Georgia, who no one has ever considered a moderate, told Bill Maher there's nothing to Palin's attack. "It's a scare tactic," Kingston said. "No question about it."

    Even some political reporters who shy away from drawing firm conclusions have acknowledged the facts. The Washington Post's Dan Balz said this morning, "It's not the way to debate this bill, and it's another example of Sarah Palin having difficulty figuring out how to enter into a serious debate about issues."

    I've long wondered if there would be a point at which Sarah Palin went just a little too far for the political mainstream. A whole lot of political observers noticed the obvious lies, the cringe-worthy ignorance, the petty feuds, and the bizarre behavior, but wanted to maintain the fiction that Palin was a credible political figure. After all, John McCain wanted her to be one heartbeat from the presidency -- and 60 million Americans agreed.

    Maybe, just maybe, her "death panel" message on Facebook -- complete with lies, poor writing, policy confusion, and family exploitation -- will be enough to convince the skeptical that Palin really is that far gone?

    I wonder how long it'll be before Palin goes "birther."
