In Case I Suffer a Stroke September 2, 2008Posted by Administrator in Cultural Pessimism, Idiots, Liberal Hypocrisy, Liberal self-loathing, Pharyngulism, Politics, Pro-Life, wtf?.
. . .I have effectively locked the blog. Only approved observers (that pretty much being me) can view the4 blog, as I do not want students from my teaching blog accessing this one.
No more Pharyngula lurkers. Boo hoo hoo.
But, some quick commentary on the Sarah Palin for Veep choice, and the Left’s quick condemnation of her.
Comment 1: She’s inexperienced. File this under WTF? I mean, look at Obama’s experience.
Comment 2: Palin’s 5th child, Trig, is actually born by her daughter, Bristol. This is how the LEftie’s manage this one:
122. What many here don’t understand. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. RUMOR IS TRUTH.
The modern laws of media hype and political warfare have a useful tenet:
Repeat ANYTHING or raise false concern over ANYTHING and it is likely to be planted in the conscious/subconscious of many voters.
If people start to think that there might be something fishy with Palin’s last kid (if hers), then that’s FINE. One more doubt (whether tied to reality or not) is another hesitation at the ballot box.
GET WITH THE PROGRAM PEOPLE. The “rising above it” bullshit has served us so well in the past, hasn’t it?
If you have problems with the story, then STFU and get out of the way of Dems who are engaged in MODERN POLITICAL WARFARE. Go tend your garden or some other pedestrian task, because the “concern trolls” are not helping shape the message.
OK, then. Truth, beauty, nevermind. Start a meme, no matter how Out There, and expect the voters to latch on.
Nice. I keep hearing how the Dems are the ethical party.
Then there’s the fact that Bristol IS pregnant. Comments from everyone’s favorite idiot, Little Paul Myers:
The issues here should not be “OMG her daughter is pregnant out of wedlock”, but “What are the candidates proposed policies for dealing with the issue of teen pregnancy?” That Palin’s daughter is pregnant should not be of any concern to either campaign; that Palin’s policies of an active maintenance of reproductive ignorance are manifest failures is.
But you ARE turning it into an issue, Little Paul, when you bring the two together like that.
She’s pro-ignorance and anti-civil rights all the way, opposing gay marriage, sex education, and reproductive rights for women. No surprise at all, I know. Here are some answers that jumped out at me:
2. Will you support the right of parents to opt out their children from curricula, books, classes, or surveys, which parents consider privacy-invading or offensive to their religion or conscience?Why or why not?
SP: Yes. Parents should have the ultimate control over what their children are taught.
She wants kids to be taught only what the parents believe, which is a disaster for education. It dictates that the next generation can be no wiser, barring exceptional effort from the kids themselves, than the previous. This is an angle to give religion a trump card over science, and jingo priority over history, by making it easy to prevent kids from being exposed to reality.
Right. We now see that Little Paul believes that the State is the only being responsible enough to raise kids. Oy gevalt.
11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
See Question 2 above. Do we really want stupid people dictating what people should learn?
No. That’s why we want PARENTS in charge of education. not you.
Here’s another answer from Palin that suddenly has more significance:
3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?
SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.
Now, are you ready to hear this?
Sarah and Todd Palin say their 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant.The couple said in a statement released by John McCain’s presidential campaign that Bristol will keep her baby.
I’m flummoxed. Here’s another personal issue that is none of the voters’ business, that will distract the media from discussing the issues, yet it speaks directly to Palin’s support for bad reproductive and educational policy.
WTF is this moron’s problem? She is for abstinence-inly education. Her daughter then gets pregnant and wants to keep the baby. And again, he claims this is no issue to be discussed publicly, then he does just that.
Asshole. Brainless asshole.
