The domestic terrorists pallin' around with Palin

When you and your husband spend a lot of time hanging out with a radical secessionist fringe third-party whose founder died in a plastic explosives deal gone bad, you probably shouldn't fling your conservative howler monkey poop at other people:

And if a radical fundamentalist evangelical preacher makes a prayer over you to keep away the witchcraft, then you probably shouldn't attempt to cast aspersions about someone else's minister. That horse, of course, was beaten to death before the summer began, but whipping up BS seems to be the only thing this woman is any good at.

We already knew you were stupid, Sarah. It's just too bad you don't have even the sense to shut up and stop proving it.

John McCain, his tangled involvement in the S&L scandal of the '80's that resulted in his charter membership in the Keating Five, not to mention its foretelling implications on the current economic disaster he so fervently desires to put aside, aside ...

Sarah Palin is nothing but a dumbass bitch who has no business whatsoever in politics above the level of Wasilla, Alaska. Thirty more days of this woman's nonsense and then we won't have to think about her again for at least four more years.


Palin, unleashed and unhinged, whips a Florida crowd into a racist frenzy ...

In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy." ...

... Palin, speaking to a sea of "Palin Power" and "Sarahcuda" T-shirts, tried to link Obama to the 1960s Weather Underground. "One of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers," she said. ("Boooo!" said the crowd.) "And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,' " she continued. ("Boooo!" the crowd repeated.)

"Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

Gee, I wonder where the Secret Service was when the death threats against a presidential candidate were being shouted out.

And Joe Klein, with "Embarracuda":

I'm of two minds about how to deal with the McCain campaign's further descent into ugliness. Their strategy is simple: you throw crap against a wall and then giggle as the media try to analyze the putresence in a way that conveys a sense of balance: "Well, it is bull-pucky, but the splatter pattern is interesting..." which, of course, only serves to get your perverse message out. I really don't want to be a part of that. But...every so often, we journalists have a duty to remind readers just how dingy the McCain campaign, and its right-wing acolytes in the media (I'm looking at you, Sean Hannity) have become--especially in their efforts to divert public attention from the economic crisis we're facing. And so inept at it: other campaigns have decided that their only shot is going negative, but usually they don't announce it, as several McCain aides have in recent days -- there's no way we can win on the economy, so we're going to go sludge-diving.

But since we are dealing with manure here, I'll put the rest of this post below the fold.

You can't make shit like this up. And it's going to get worse. For the next month. And some people are going to decide to vote for the Republicans because of it.

How fucked up is that?
