Livin' Palin-- Trailer Trash Deserves Some Representin' Too

>

"When racism comes to America, it'll be wrapped in bacon and wearing lipstick."

When I woke up today and turned on the TV it was... like surreal. Pat Buchanan was whining that, although he knows it isn't what Obama meant, his statement about putting lipstick on a pig was coming across as a slam against Sarah Palin. Personally, I'd say that Buchanan's comments about McCain being such a complete and utter warmonger that if he ever got his hands on the presidency he'd make Cheney look like Gandhi is more relevant to the election, but today's topic seems to be trailer trash. It reminded me of a little Senate debate from when I was a kid.

I don't remember many Senate debates from when I was a kid but this one was based on a statement by Roman Hruska and I suspect not many DWT readers remember him at all-- or have ever even heard of him-- unless they happen to live in Clay County, Nebraska (pop. 7,039). In 1970 President Carter renamed the Federal Meat Animal Research Center for ex-Senator Hruska. Other than that he's remembered for one thing: his novel-- but sincere-- defense of Nixon Supreme Court nominee G. Harrold Carswell. During the debate Hruska, who no one ever accused of being one of the Senate's leading lights, jumped to defend the honor of Mr. Carswell, a stalwart Republican hack:

"So what if he is mediocre? There are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they? We can't have all Brandeises, Cardozos, and Frankfurters and stuff like that there."

It was a jaw-dropping stunner and helped seal the fate of the extreme right wing Carswell, who was last heard from after being arrested in a Florida public toilet trying to perform fellatio on an undercover policeman in 1976.

But it is by Hruska's defense of Carswell that the Republicans expect to enable Sarah Palin to drag John McCain's rotting old carcass into the White House. Buchanan and other GOP propagandists are all shedding profuse crocodile tears today that even if Obama wasn't signaling that Palin is trailer trash, trailer trash deserves "a little representation" too. Well... even forgetting for a moment that that's the role of scores of congressmen, from Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Steve King (R-IA) to Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Dan Burton (R-IN), haven't we already seen what happens when we elect someone who we feel comfortable having a beer with rather than striving for the best among us?

And this week's National Enquirer absolutely glories in the trailer trashiness of their newest heroine and her family. I have a good friend in, of all places, Wasilla, so none of this is news to me, but Enquirer readers are gobbling up an "exclusive" about the first family of trailer trash.
The Enquirer has learned exclusively that Sarah's oldest son, Track, was addicted to the power drug OxyContin for nearly the past two years, snorting it, eating it, smoking it and even injecting it. And as Track, 19, heads to Iraq as part of the U.S. armed forces, Sarah and her husband Todd were powerless to stop his wild antics, detailed in the new issue of The Enquirer, which goes on sale today.

The Enquirer also has exclusive details about Track's use of other drugs, including cocaine, and his involvement in a notorious local vandalism incident.

“I’ve partied with him (Track) for years,” a source disclosed. “I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed.”

The source also divulged the girls would do anything for Track and he’d use his local celebrity to manipulate other guys “to get them to steal things he wanted.”

“He finally did what a lot of troubled kids here do,” the source divulged. “You join the military.”

And as Gov. Palin has billed the state of Alaska for various expenses related to her children, as reported by the Washington Post, The Enquirer's investigation reveals that she was so incensed by 17-year-old Bristol's pregnancy that she banished her daughter from the house.

Another family friend revealed pre-prego Bristol was as much of a hard partier as Track was.

“Bristol was a huge stoner and drinker. I’ve seen her smoke pot and get drunk and make out with so many guys. All the guys would brag that the just made out with Bristol.”

When Sarah found out the teen was pregnant by high schooler Levi Johnston, she was actually banished from the house. As part of the cover-up, Palin quickly transferred Bristol to another high school and made her move in with Sarah’s sister Heather 25 miles away!

And The Enquirer also learned that Levi Johnston, the baby mamma’s future wedded dada, who was glad handed by John McCain at the GOP Convention, isn’t too happy about his impending shotgun nups either.

“Levi got dragged out of the house to go to Minnesota,” Levi’s friend told The Enquirer. “Levi realizes he’s stuck being with Bristol because her mom is running for Vice President.”

The friend also confided that both Bristol and Levi “broke up a few times and they definitely messed around with other people.”

Meanwhile, as members of the Palin family’s war viciously over “Trooper-Gate” and claims of Sarah’s extramarital affair have turned the political race into a chaotic arena of threats, denials and vicious attacks by political black ops, The Enquirer has discovered shocking new details about the red-hot affair scandal!

Why not? The Bushes without the ill-gotten family wealth and pedigree! We'll see if McCain's cynicism and severe lack of judgment is echoed by the voting public... in November... especially if the Vanity Fair story about Trig's parentage is true, something DWT has never believed... until today.

"Doesn't John McCain seem a little ODD?!"

(And no, we're not talking about the Odd Fellows here....)

"I suspect not many DWT readers remember [Hruska] at all"

Damn, I must be getting old. Yes, I remember that moronic dickhead. I always thought James Inhofe was a direct descendant.

Palin' McBush

Now that is a god slogan wouldn't you think?

We do not need a Pres who is too senile for the job, a doped and stoned frst lady, a veep who is clearly trailer trash with a family that seems to getting it on every minute(a bastard born a day!), grandma saying she is the mom!!! Lol!

As a new immigrant, I am simply amazed that the very same people who will suffer worst at the hand of Repugants will vote for GOP. I know the countries that I and other recent immigrants come from will laugh all the way to the bank if GOP is in power, more offshoring more outsourcing of jobs. Guess who will get hit in the process, us Americans, our kids and their future.

Stop this loting of the economy and the govt by GOP. Put a decent democrat in power. Unlike most democrats who cannot seem to keep their wonkies where they belong, this guy Obama seems reasonable, will do good for the country and help us all. I know I will personally be better off with GOP in terms of taxes as my combined family income exceeds half a million, but heck, this is our country and we need to do best what is best for the nation. We cannot allow the repugnants to take the already 11 trillion in national debt to higher levels and kill our future.

Obama is being too nice in this campaign. Need to get tougher, the country's future is at stake. I am sending in my first contribution to Obama today.
