The Wal-Mart Mom, The Media And The Incredible Shrinking GOP-- Oh And The McCain Campaign Faked The Mutilation Story


They dressed her up nice but she wouldn't give up her own purse

We resisted writing about the $150,000 McCain gave Caribou Barbie for designer clothes and makeup. Anything that distracts from the real issues is a plus for McCain's crumbling campaign. Today Palin did an interview with the Chicago Tribune and instead of talking about why the Republican Party thinks staying the course is the way to make the economy work for regular Americans, she got to yammer on mindlessly about her clothing. Her and McCain didn't exactly get their stories straight though. "Oh, if people only knew how frugal we are," she whined.
"It's kind of painful to be criticized for something when all the facts are not out there and are not reported," said Palin, saying the clothes are not worth $150,000 and were bought for the Republican National Convention. Still, she has been wearing pricey clothes at campaign events this fall. She said they will be given back, auctioned off or sent to charity. Most of them, she said, haven't even left the belly of her campaign plane.

McCain meanwhile, claims the $150,000 worth of clothes and accessories was money well-spent. Obviously, the kind of people who have bought into the Wal-Mart Mom crap, can't connect the dots anyway. "She needed the clothes," sniffed McCain, who likes his women well turned-out-- although... fashion experts are scratching their heads and wondering how exactly she spent all that money (based on what they've seen her wearing). It looks like at least some of the money was pocketed by the Palins.

Meanwhile, the media can always be counted on to keep 'em honest... right?


You probably heard all the carrying on from the right-wing loons like Drudge and from the poor victims at the McCain campaign screeching about how their volunteer was beaten up and mutilated for her McCainishness. The racist story never made any sense anyway but after she took a lie detector test, she just proved herself to be another typical Republican liar. She now admits she made the whole thing up. A Fox news executive VP said if the story is a hoax-- and it has now been established that it was-- then McCain's campaign is over. That's news?

I haven't heard McCain or Palin apologizing. You? No, they're still figuring out a way to blame this on... well anyone. McCain never says he's sorry. He never accepts responsibility in any meaningful way. That's the story of his life. Even Michele Bachmann is trying to apologize (now that she sees her political career rapidly fading into the past).

Speaking of Sarah Palin's Wardrobe:

What would have precluded her from going to such outlets more in line with the "Joe Sixpack" image to procure said wardrobe (among them Target, Herberger's, H&M, Filene's Basement, Kohl's, that sort of place)?

The backwards B on this liar's face says it all. She looked in the mirror while carving a B into her own cheek. So typical of filthy Republican shenanigans. Put them all in jail and let the rest of us live in true democratic freedom - MORE NOW THAN EVER, OBAMA 08!!!
