This is actually quite good fun, watching THEM self destruct.
The latest, from a church speech by Palin, about Iraq:
“Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God.”And her 'Pastor Wright' moment:
What you see in a terrorist — that’s called the invisible enemy. There has always been an invisible enemy. What you see in Iraq, basically, is a manifestation of what’s going on in this unseen world called the spirit world. … We need to think like Jesus thinks. We are in a time and a season of war, and we need to think like that. We need to develop that instinct. We need to develop as believers the instinct that we are at war, and that war is contending for your faith. … Jesus called us to die. You’re worried about getting hurt? He’s called us to die. Listen, you know we can’t even follow him unless you are willing to give up your life. … I believe that Jesus himself operated from that position of war mode. Everyone say “war mode.” Now you say, wait a minute Ed, he’s like the good shepherd, he’s loving all the time and he’s kind all the time. Oh yes he is — but I also believe that he had a part of his thoughts that knew that he was in a war.[Ed Kalnins, the senior pastor of Wasilla Assembly of God]
Awh hell. Red State like the 'Alaskan librarian. take-her-on-the-tundra' look:
More satire: Ham Sandwich McCain's Actual Choice for Veep
McCain's actual running mate will be a ham sandwich.And my fave quote on the whole shebang from Chris Kelly:
The sandwich, said by analysts to be "a little light on the ham," has never held any public office and is incapable of speech or rational thought. It is thought that the choice will solidify McCain's credentials as a "maverick."
"John McCain makes decisions with his gut," said Davis. "That's what Americans like, right?"
Just the breath of fresh air a state funeral needs.Postscript: From Andrew Sullivan. Palin's Pastor Wright moment continues. She sat in church whilst some 'Jews for Jesus' guy ranted:
"Israelis who were murdered by Palestinian terrorists were simply enduring 'God's judgment' for not converting to Christianity."And Lieberman is happy with this?
