Unless it changes its filing schedule to monthly, Sarah PAC will file again in December 2011. At which point we’ll get an idea of how many of the faithful fell for the Quitessential Governor’s Dance of the 700,000 Veils this summer.
Me, I say the One Nation Under Youbetcha tour bus gets cut up to make relics for various $arah $hrines around the country before mid-2012.
At Rumproast, ms yafb notes that while we were riveted by the frivolous and unimportant goings on in Egypt, we failed to acknowledge an event that was 10,000 times more important. Sarah Palin – The Most Extraordinary Person in the Entire Universe – turned 47 years old.
To make up for this deplorable lapse in manners, I humbly present this Birthday Blingee to the President of the United States of Facebook.
Happy Birthday Sarah!
The Doughy Pantload (AKA Jonah Goldberg), on equal marriage rights, Take 2:
But all I can say in my defense is that I think I’m right about the inevitability of gay marriage or at least very strong civil unions (which would ultimately lead to gay marriage, anyway). [Bzzzt! The correct answer is: All I can say in my defense is I'll shut up and never seek to communicate with another human being for the rest of my miserable life - ed.]
I don’t take this position because I’m dodging, or caving, or playing games of some kind [Butcha aaare, ya aaare in the chair, Blanche! - ed]. I just happen to think it’s true (barring some scientific developments down the road).
Yup. According to the Loathesome Doughfucker, unspecified “scientific developments” could stop the inevitable spread of equal marriage rights in this country.
Those of us who know a teeny bit about events both past and current tend to reach for the trusty blunderbuss we hear this kind of talk. It makes us nervous.
However, those of us who know jackshit about anything are free to blithely claim that gays were the best friends a Nazi ever had ergo liberals are fascists but maybe a scientific development or two will set things right, which is (of course) central to the point.
President Barack Obama’s approval ratings have sunk … so low that he’d lose the White House to Republican Mitt Romney if the election were held today,according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
This is causing knickersknotitis in some quarters of the Internet (and I don’t want to think about what it is doing to k-Load’s panties). Fortunately the condition can be cured by entering Mitt Romney in the search bar and/or engaging in a little critical thinking. I’m surprised it made past McClatchy’s editors.
The potential U.S. presidential candidate also planned to stop by cholera-treatment centers.
Seriously? An outlet that writes that about Palin should just write it about everyone:
“Potential U.S. presidential candidate Jarvis Goodyear pleaded not guilty to six charges of public nudity.”
“Potential U.S. presidential candidate Travis Yeardley is excited about his first day of school.”
“Potential U.S. presidential candidate Adorabelle Dearheart died yesterday at the age of 96. She is survived by three children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.”
My Pretty Paladino is one classy bucket of rancid pig swill:
New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has told Orthodox Jewish leaders that he doesn’t want children “brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality” is acceptable.
Paladino made the comments Sunday at a synagogue in New York. He skipped a line from his prepared text that read, “There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.”
Because it would have killed that slimy sack of buzzard puke to skip the homophobic bullshit completely.
Asked whether his comments were appropriate given the attack, Paladino said he does not support violence against gays.
“Don’t misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie,” he said. “My approach is live and let live.”
Except, it isn’t your approach you fat sweaty fucknugget.
Listen up NYers, don’t make me sell your state to The Utterly Evil Things from Andromeda 7. They’re messy eaters.
Update: Missed this in my first pass through the story -
He added that children who later in life choose to marry people of the opposite sex and raise families would be “much better off and much more successful.”
I guess Carl Palomino figured raising TWO families would make him TWICE as successful.
