God I can’t wait until November 5th when I don’t have to spin this shit anymore

In And I can get blitzed out of my mind on October 1, 2008 at 2:01 pm

You guys are not being very nice, fellow Republicans.

“Some Republicans say they are uncertain of McCain’s electoral strategy, wondering why, for example, he’s back in Iowa this week, a state few independent analysts see as being in play and where public polls this month show Obama enjoying a double-digit lead even before the economic meltdown. Asked why McCain was in Iowa, one veteran Republican there replied: ‘Because he’s running a senseless, non-strategic campaign. Why else would he come here?’”

Or you guys, US Military.

“When Russian bombers approach American airspace  and U.S. Air Force fighters are scrambled, Sarah Palin‘s phone doesn’t ring.The Alaska governor has no command authority over the guardians of U.S. airspace despite her recent suggestion otherwise.”

And Sarah? Still retarded. As ever.

She should you start using that answer for more interview questions. “Hey Sarah which countries should we invade?” “Oh, you know, um, gee… ALL OF THEM?”  Genius.

And John? Still angry. As ever.

And conservative nutjobs? Still as nutty as ever, even against their own.

“Allow me to introduce myself. I am a traitor and an idiot. Also, my mother should have aborted me and left me in a Dumpster, but since she didn’t, I should “off” myself.

Those are just a few nuggets randomly selected from thousands of e-mails written in response to my column suggesting that Sarah Palin is out of her league and should step down.

Who says public discourse hasn’t deteriorated?

Of course, there’s a difference between a lack of polish and a lack of coherence. Some of Palin’s interview responses can’t even be critiqued on their merits because they’re so nonsensical. “Let Sarah be Sarah” has become the latest rallying cry among my colleagues on the right. She’ll be fine if we just leave her alone, they say. Between prayers, I might add.

The picture is this: Anyone who dares express an opinion that runs counter to the party line will be silenced. That doesn’t sound American to me, but Stalin would approve. Readers have every right to reject my opinion. But when we decide that a person is a traitor and should die for having an opinion different than one’s own, then we cross into territory that puts all freedoms at risk. (I hear you, Dixie Chicks.)”

So what should we do? The surge. I mean, SUSPEND THE CAMPAIGN.

AGAIN.

But at least Tom Brokaw is still spreading fale information is still on our side. Thank god for that. Not so much the polls though (538 breaks it down brilliantly as usual), no matter how hard we try to spin itOr women (details here, including the fact that Obama is now at the 50% threshold in the Time poll, which no Democrat has done since before Reagan).

What does it mean? A right-wing blogosphere civil war? The end of the Republican brand? Only time will tell. But in the mean time, LET’S PAY SOME FRAT DUDES TO PROTEST THE VP DEBATE LIKE IT’S THEIR JOB.

UPDATE: And the amazing quotes keep coming in:

“Obviously in a McCain administration she will not have much of a role in foreign policy.”

Republicans see stunning “lack of competence” in McCain campaign
