Fight, Fight, Fight!

Gov. Sarah Palin has burst on the scene with style, guts — and a penchant for distorting the facts, thanks to Bush’s former speech writer who wrote her speech Wednesday night. Some highlights of the actual story: Barack Obama in fact did author (co-author) an important bill in the state senate, on ethics, specifically campaign funds. Remember, he’s the first major candidate in history to waive the right to receive "public" funds — from Political Action Committees, lobbyists and corporations. Remember, he’s raised more money than any candidate in history, and all from individuals. John McCain may have passed a groundbreaking ethics bill, McCain-Feingold, for which he should be commended, but he still opted to receive public funds, and has raised far less than Obama.

Many of you might also be wondering about Obama’s recent statement that the surge worked. Well, it’s true that things are finally better in Iraq. And that’s a great thing. In fact, Bush is talking about withdrawal according to Maliki’s timetable. Flip-flopping’s got nothing to do with it, and I’m confident that in the debates Obama will address accusations of flip-flopping much more effectively than Kerry did in 2004.

Regarding the Georgian conflict, I’ve read a lot of info on the issue from various sources. While I’m alarmed at Russian aggression, there seems to be some evidence that the Georgian government has been discriminating against the ethnic Russians in their breakaway states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Read the history at wikipedia and some more background at amnesty.org. The conflict is not simple, and is undoubtedly frustrating. For instance, how the Russians can ignore their own treatment of Chechnya and condemn Georgia’s treatment of its breakaways is beyond me. Obama’s statements about Georgia, for me, reflect more of an understanding of foreign policy than the "one-answer-for-everything" treatment McCain gave the issue last night… I felt like when he talked about solidarity with the Georgians, he might as well have been Reagan talking about Nicaragua or Afghanistan, when every issue is much more nuanced.

Don’t back down on this fight!

The grossly oversimplified debate about the success of the so-called “surge” has made it easy for me to be cynical about the future, and the very merit, of our form of democracy.

Let’s include all the variables, please? With the war going on longer than WWII, one would expect progress at some point, given the enormous investment of resources over such a long period.

Do we know that violence wouldn’t have dissipated with the natural course of the war without adding a measly 10% increase in troop levels and tweaking counterinsurgency tactics?

No. Is it reasonable to expect an enemy to greet an increase in our forces in Iraq, which are much, much more concentrated per-square mile than our much, much smaller deployment in Afghanistan, with a decision to go fight where the numbers are more favorable?

Yes. Is anybody talking about these essential points for evaluating the “Surge?” No. WHY? Why can’t Obama make that case?

Did a poll find that 20% of republicans think that Obama is a Muslim, just three weeks ago? Yes. Does that make it legitimate for some European to mouth off about stupid Americans?

Yes. Should Sarah Palin be immediately disqualified as a vice presidential candidate for her extreme, Evangelical Christian beliefs?

Yes. Sorry so long, but I’m all wrapped up in the Culture War. It just feels good to vent.

Ikonoclast:

Even if the facts were to check out correct on a legit news source, don’t you find them petty?

I mean: Palin was for a project until she saw what it cost? Palin said Obama hasn’t written a law?

C’mon…

I know you were the author of “Obama Deserves The Prize” on this website (as if being the president is a “prize”) and I find it hilarious the extremes you Obama supporters go to to make Sarah Palin look bad.

You have to admit: The DailyKos and every other Left Wing Blog lost ALOT of credibility publishing the stories it did.

Sarah Palin has the Liberals scared to death. And she should.

Because she is right.

She may not promise FREE MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR ME! Like Obama does. And she is not a socialist.

She is an American.

If I may resort to immature attacks, I would like to add that the Liberals may be better called the “PARTY OF SORE LOSERS”.

Look, the reason why Liberals fear this woman is because she is a STRONG and INDEPENDENT woman. Thats all.

Liberals on the other hand are WEAK and DEPENDENT.

Liberals worship government the same way that Conservatives worship God. Both are DEPENDENT. And dependence is weakness.

I always thought of the Liberals-the left-Democrats-independents-whatever…as being less conforming and more independently-mindful than the Religious Right. Barak Obama has shown me that this is not true at all.

I have never seen such a gullible group of people than the Obama supporters.

My suggestion: Pay attention. Obama promises more money to you… and he may provide it…

How much freedom will it cost?

As Marilyn Vos Savant (Worlds Smartest Woman) once said (I’m paraphrasing): “The worst thing anyone can do is vote out of self interest. It is far more honarable to vote in the countries interest instead”.

And I don’t know. Maybe Socialism would be in your kids best interest too, if you dont want to take the responsibility for raising them. Otherwise, do the best you can and teach your children to do the same.

And If you are to weak and dependent to take care of yourself…

Vote Obama.

Bulldada: The party of sore losers, eh? So what do we call a party whose convention includes these GROSS EXAMPLES OF INCOMPETENCE?

1) For the most important vice presidential speech in the history of the Republican party, Palin steps up to the mic with the wrong version of her speech loaded in the teleprompter. Which GOP loser did that?

2) Even the most die-hard FOX News political commentators had to cringe and admit that McCain gave a horrible speech on June 3rd against a horrible, vomit-green backdrop…

So what does his convention speech offer? Another horrible green backdrop–displaying the type of judgment normally reserved for delusional psychotics, but in this special instance, it confirms one of my many suspicions about the GOP: the whole party actually must be run by delusional psychotics. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

The green comes from the lawn in the backdrop picture…a picture of Walter Reed MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! Let’s analyze this, shall we? Which GOP loser did that?

Unlike the teleprompter fiasco for the dominant visual behind the Republican Party’s candidate for president, Bulldadda, this fascinating display of incompetence cannot be blamed on one or two SORE LOSER REPUBLICANS like you.

No Abu Ghraib scapegoating possible here…

A massive visual behind the main speech of the convention is an element that must go through the highest levels of the party. There is no excuse, nor are there any excuses for:

WMD, appointing a horse lawyer to run FEMA, Katrina, torture, “Is Are Children Learning?” “Bring it On!” “Crusades” …okay, any American could finish this list, given 8-20 years (the list will grow with every day)…except republican sore losers and idiots like you, Bulldada.

And so, a humble recommendation:

PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS, BULLDADA, WIPE THE SHIT FROM YOUR EYES, AND APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR PATHETIC EXISTENCE.

Valhar2000 / September 7th, 2008, 3:48 am / #4

Bulldada, writing things in capitals does not make them less wrong. No amount of font or style changes can make a bad idea good, or add meaning to meaninglessness.

bulldada / September 7th, 2008, 9:22 am / #5

Rusty and Valhar2000,

Are you serious? Is this your actual response to my comment?

You dont like McCains backdrop and sometimes I type in CAPS for emphasis?

BLACKSUN: Where are you? I know you can put up a more logical debate than these dimwits.

BlackSun / September 7th, 2008, 11:31 am / #6

Bulldada,

When you make accusations like “Obama’s a socialist,” “Liberals are weak and dependent,” and you defend Palin with statements like “she is an American,” you deserve whatever you get in response. CAPS is SHOUTING, by the way.

But I will have something about Palin soon.

Rusty / September 7th, 2008, 12:42 pm / #7

Sorry Bulldada, I wasn’t aware you needed logic spoon-fed to you. Mistakenly choosing a massive picture of a middle school in LA instead of a VA hospital in DC is a mistake a newbie blogger might make using Google Images—but how could it happen at a $82 million political convention?

That takes a large team of GOP losers.

Do you want our country run with the same incompetence the GOP displayed running their convention? Four more years of incompetent government?

BTW, you picked the perfect word for McCain: loser. He graduated in the bottom .05% of his class at the Naval Academy and crashed three planes–before he even went to war! He wasted millions of taxpayer dollars before even getting into politics! Winner! Winner! Yay!

McCain’s lazy study habits as a pilot are documented by at least two of his flight instructors. It’s why he was flying lame A-4 Skyhawks with other loser pilots while the real heros flew F-4 Phantoms. And please, getting shot down does not make a hero. Combined with McCain’s Navy records, it makes him a loser.

But what really makes him a loser is this: he didn’t even want to go to the Naval Academy. He didn’t want to be a pilot. He just did what his daddy told him to do, but quarter-ass…all the way up to when he got shot down.

The contrast with Obama is literally black and white. Obama forged his own path, worked hard for everything he achieved and succeeded beyond everyone’s expectations. McCain pressed the Default button for a borrowed path in life, didn’t work hard (by his own admission), and crashed three planes before getting shot down. Hero? NO. Loser? Yes.

Once again, I recommend taking your head out of your ass and wiping the shit from your eyes. Finally, there is a difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom. You can neuter a pit bull. (Thanks Bill Maher.)

Rusty:

Your hatred of the US military and the people who serve in it is absolutely sickening. I see now where you stand and have no interest in carrying on this dialouge.

I have been an atheist my entire life, but for once I will pray for a hell, reserved just for you and your disrespectful, subhuman and freedom hating ilk.

Rusty / September 7th, 2008, 5:38 pm / #9

Your hatred of the US military and the people who serve in it is absolutely sickening.

Funny how all logic and reason so easily go out the window when addressing a man’s service during wartime. Even McCain expressed shame and regret for his poor military record–at one point, he saw going to Vietnam as the only way to redeem himself.

I don’t hate the military, I hate seeing incompetence rewarded, just as it was with Bush. Neither one studied much in college, neither one was successful in the years after college (bad pilot, bad oil man) and both coasted on their family name. How honorable. How deserving of blind respect and devotion!

For an aspiring leader of the lone superpower, I find this to be very disturbing–don’t we want the best and the brightest? The hardest-working and most intelligent? A man who carved out his own career, all by himself?

BTW, I regularly email a a friend’s brother in Iraq, who is planning on writing a book, and seeking my help as an editor. And he’s for McCain.

If there is a next time, please don’t resort to such a pathetic “Oh my god, he hates the troops!” attack. Do you not see any link between two of McCain’s flight instructors complaining about his lack of effort and studying, his three pilot-error plane crashes, his refusal to release the military records that any real hero would be flaunting, and the fact that it only took a total of about 20 hours of flight time for him to get shot down?

I admire the bravery and the sacrifices of those who serve in the military, but only those who do so in a way deserving of admiration. I do not admire a man who knocked down power lines in Southern Spain simply because he wanted to joyride and fly too low.

And I will never admire a proven slacker using his POW/torture story to deflect any and all criticism. Think about it. It’s pathetic, and even republicans are cringing at how often he mentions having been a POW.

And yes, it’s always best to quit a debate you can’t win.

iconoklast / September 7th, 2008, 5:39 pm / #10

Good Sunday afternoon to you, Bulldada -

I’ve seen your comments on this website and so I see that at least in your atheism you like to look at issues logically with as many facts as possible. However, in your comments on “Obama Deserves the Prize” and on “Fight, Fight, Fight,” you get a factual “fail.”

First, in my post “Obama Deserves the Prize,” by “prize,” I was referring to the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. I think it’s a perfectly fine choice of word — given the fact that it’s awarded to a victor.

Not only did you confuse my use of the word “prize,” you’ve conflated my words in this post with those of other bloggers who in their own way have addressed Sarah Palin and her fitness to be vice president. While I find her actions on the proposed $398 million bridge to Gravina Island, a community of 50, transparent “flip-flopping,” to borrow a term from the right, I did not mention it in this post.

Flip-flopping is indeed a genuine occurrence, but I only acknowledge it when the reasons for holding the earlier opinion are unequivocally self-serving, as are the reasons for changing to the later opinion. In Palin’s case, Congress denied the funds, so… of course at that point she was going to say “no thanks” to Congress, as she has proudly reported to all of us. To be fair, I’d like to point out that the bridge was originally seen as a way to develop the island further, and thus stimulate Alaska’s economy. So it’s not totally fair to act like the bridge was just for 50 people. See, liberals can look at all sides. I wish rabid right-wingers could, too.

Although I did not cite Palin’s support of the Bridge to Nowhere as evidence that she was an opportunist, I think you are aware that in American political history, every candidate is subject to the most rigorous scrutiny — usually by the press and the opposing party — so that voters can evaluate how they will govern if elected. The Right Wing engages in such scrutiny with unbelievable vigor (think about the scrutiny of the Clintons), and the Left does as well. That is the right of either side. I’d personally like everything to come out BEFORE an election. Wouldn’t you?

And sorry, methinks Bulldada doth protest too much with his “liberals fear this woman because she is STRONG and INDEPENDENT. That is all.” I wish that were all. But, Bulldada, it is not. Sorry, right-wingers such as yourself are not allowed to attack one strong woman (Hillary Clinton, relentlessly, since the 1992 election) and then dismiss any criticism of another powerful woman you happen to like as originating from “fear.”

You’re right, there are plenty of people who fear Sarah Palin. I had to ask myself, just as I did when I initially felt bothered by Obama’s audacity, whether I was opposed to Sarah Palin merely because she seemed awfully audacious for a newcomer. And besides, she gets to be kind of librarian-hot, too! No fair… Waaaaah! And, no. I have to say that my opposition to her actually comes from her opinions on the issues.

1. She does not appear to believe that global warming is caused by carbon emissions. This is the most important problem with her and the entire Republican convention.

President Bush himself admitted, albeit with a lot of disclaimers regarding what is still unknown, that humans are contributing to global warming. So for McCain and Palin to ignore the problem and support a program of drilling while giving lip service to alternative fuels (wind, corn, you know, that whole thing), is simply unacceptable.

2. She believes the earth was created 6,000 years ago by God.

3. She has a superficial grasp of the views of her opponent, Barack Obama, repeatedly lying about them in public.

Bulldada, you say the fact-checking on her speech was “minor.” That is just as much of an indisputable statement of opinion as is characterizing legislation as “important” or “major.” Everyone knows that authoring legislation, and bringing it to law, is just about the most challenging thing anyone can do, involving compromise and reaching across the aisles, usually after being in office for a term or two, and is one measure of a leader’s effectiveness. The fact that Obama’s short record shows he has done this is *indeed* important.

Regarding Obama’s economic plan: like Bill Clinton before him, he is working to help the middle and lower class and make sure their quality of life continues to increase. Just as with the 40-hour work week, and the minimum wage, America has a history of (eventually) doing the right thing when it comes to the American worker. That is the hallmark of a great society. And it’s a *far* cry from socialism.

And just as in past campaigns, Palin’s description of the Obama tax plan was vintage Rovesque mischaracterization. Do you know how long Republicans have been claiming that they reduce government and taxes, and their opponents do the opposite? About as long as they’ve been raising the national debt to record heights through no accountability for the budget.

Tax cuts do indeed stimulate the economy by encouraging investment. Look at Ireland’s recent boom, which is widely believed to have resulted from a change in the tax structure, though some believe there’s a “bubble” there. The problem with this issue is that Republicans tend to oppose tax cuts for the lower and middle classes and support cuts only for the wealthy. Makes sense, since the lower and middle classes don’t tend to invest much. I think if you looked through the corporate tax code, you’d be shocked at how light the tax structure is for the top 1 percent of individuals and corporations in this country.

Funny, when a Republican actually does give money back, in the form of “stimulus” checks, do you, Bulldada, call that socialism? Where are you then? I suspect you’re nowhere, because of your ignorance of the fact that all of our leaders follow the principles of Keynesian economics once they get into office. Maybe they sit down for a crash course with the Fed chairman. So I see you still haven’t ordered that econ 101 primer I recommended, have you?

4. Watching Palin lie in her speech made me realize that the same people really are running the McCain campaign that were running the Bush campaign (and his father and Reagan before). In fact, I felt kind of nauseous that such a woman could be used by the right-wing in power as such an obvious pawn, and yet the “faithful” wouldn’t see it. It is because she is such a weak pawn in the machine that I and others like me felt so dismayed on hearing her speech.

I seem to remember you citing an editorial in the Sung Myung Moon-owned and unapolagetically right-wing Washington Times as evidence that Obama’s economic plan was trash. The “facts” in that editorial were weak at best, and nonexistent at worst. So please refrain from acting like you’ve just come new to this debate with a readiness to examine Sarah Palin factually — or for that matter, Barack Obama and John McCain. From your vitriol, I can see that you’ve made up your mind a long time ago.

I, on the other hand, begrudgingly acknowledge only this May that Obama is indeed the kind of leader who comes along maybe once every two or three generations. I swallowed my pride and my perception of injustice that such a man could burst on the scene and expect to win. And I realized that he — and his abilities — were bigger than me and my petty ideas of how things *should* go in politics. It was hard for me to do. So now that I have assessed Obama up and down, and found him to be the man that he claims to be, I will not accept anyone’s dismissal of my opinion as somehow invalid because the man is — too popular? Do you know how bitter you sound when you attack Obama’s supporters? And I wonder if you realize that no matter if Obama wins or not, you’ll be on the wrong side of history.

Finally, you quote Marilyn Vos Savant as saying something that is basically a paraphrase of John F. Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” I couldn’t agree with him/you more. Funny, he was a Democrat.

Valhar2000 / September 7th, 2008, 6:24 pm / #11

Bulldada, of course that is my entire answer to your comment! Surely you don’t expect a 4000 word essay in response to a comment with no actual content? And, by the way, when you write things in all caps for emphasis you should be emphasizing what is most important, not what is most inane to make up. Unless, of course, you really were emphasizing the most important parts of you comment, in which it’s lack of content is even greater than I thought.

bulldada / September 8th, 2008, 12:04 pm / #12

Ikonoclast:

Thank you for your thoughtful response. After reading Valhar and Rustys comments, I thought I either became a genius overnight, or this website has been hijacked by religious zealots speaking in satire as a way to discredit the normally intelligent crowd I find here.

I’m glad you brought up flip-flopping. All politicians do it, and should for that matter. I wasn’t aware that it was a “right-wing term” I think it’s wise to be open to new ideas and change stances as the facts change. And while Sarah Palin hasn’t been on the scene too long, and certainly more negative things will inevitably come up, she has flip-flopped on 2 things.

Obama on the other hand has too many times to count.

He has flipped on the troop withdrawl, public financing, corporate taxes, taxing the rich, DC gun ban, welfare reform, nuclear power, the death penalty, abortion, debates with McCain, oil drilling, the troop surge, William Ayers, Rev. Wright, the Bush tax cuts etc. etc. etc.

Does Obama just say whats politically expedient? Does he really represent anything or anyone?

I have been called a “Right Wing Nut” and a “Republican” several times in the above posts. For the record, I am neither. I am a member of the Libertarian Party.

If I may respond to your points:

1.“Sarah Palin does not believe that global warming is caused by carbon emissions.” And maybe it dosen’t. I don’t claim to know. And until someone says what temperature the earth should be, I aint buying in to the fad.

2.“She believes the earth was created 6000 years ago by God”. So what? Fact is, most people in America are Christians who believe this stuff. Sarah Palin has expressly said that she does not believe that any level of government (including government schools) should be required to teach creationism. In fact, she is against it.

3.“She has a superficial grasp of her opponent (BO) and lies about him in public”. I say when? What were the lies? And what about the lies BO has said about the McCain Campaign? Do I need to point them out?

4.“I felt… nauseous that… a woman could be used… as a right wing pawn”.
That sounds like a sexist statement to me. All VPs are utilized to make up for the weakness that the candidates have.

Now, if I can respond to the subject of Socialism. Barak Obama-as you-know, had many Marxist connections and friends. His plan to tax the rich for fairness-not for revenue-but to be fair- and give that money to lower income people is the beginnings of socialism. Government Healthcare is Socialized medicine. And a National Police Force as big and as well funded as the US Army? What purpose does that have? Sounds like the SS to me. (Did I just invoke Godwin?)

I do salute you, Ikonoclast. Most folks I know have no clue about Barak Obama or where he stands on any issue. You sound as if you have bothered to do some research and have put up a compelling argument. In fact, you may be the first Obamanite who didn’t just quote the mantras (you know, “change!” “four more years of Bush!” “She’s Dick Cheney in a dress!” etc.)

However, I will not be voting for Barak Obama. I think he is a dangerous man who could wreak havoc on our economy and freedoms. I’m not too excited about McCain-Palin either, or Barr-Root… Unfortunately, it’s another election year of voting for the lesser of two evils.

Thanks, Happy&Free. You’re not trapped-inside-the-box like most people seem to be right now. Why do I say that? BECAUSE IT’S FUCKING TIME TO USE ALL CAPS.

The importance of this election is simply impossible to exaggerate.

Bulldadda: satire, you say? Is it possible that you think I’m kidding that McCain graduated 894 out his class of 899 (bottom .05%, about as unelite as possible) and crashed three Navy planes before any combat? Google.

Sorry I was an asshole, but frankly, people like you terrify me (see Happy&Free comment). You call yourself an atheist? Unless you’ve been in a coma for the last eight years, I recommend a brain scan ASAP.

And that’s what’s so frightening. I thought anybody with half a brain could see this election as a no-brainer. I didn’t mean to be such an asshole, but if you’re going to attack my savior again, you better be able to do a lot better than that.

My forecast: Republicans will find a way to manufacture an incident with the MSM, sexism probably, FOX News will fan the fake fires, the GOP base will love it, and cheer when the McCain campaign announces that Palin will not do any interviews after what will be the most disgusting soft-ball interview in U.S. history with Gibson.

And Bulldadda, you were right about something. I don’t belong commenting here. It’s like I keep trying to join baseball games but I hate baseball. I’m a football player. Like Happy&Free. Can’t help that I write unconsciously, Happy&Free, even if I sometimes pee in my own stream of consciousness (Blacksun, please understand I truly am ashamed of many words I’ve left on your blog. The stakes in the Culture War, the pain I feel for all the people the other side shits on every fucking day…I can’t always keep my intense emotions and impulsiveness in check)

This will be my last comment, not for this post, but for the blog. Unless someone attacks Happy&Free for his large letters, of course. Blacksun & Tatiana, thanks for tolerating my Joe Biden long-windedness, remarkable ability to go off on tangents, and other assorted posting habits that may have annoyed.

Take no prisoners. No more Mr. Nice Guy…and good luck with the CUT doc, Blacksun. I’m sure you’ll do a great job and I look forward to seeing it.

bulldada / September 9th, 2008, 4:23 am / #16

“HOW THE FREAKING HECH DOES AN ATHEIST SUPPORT RIGHT WING RELIGIOUS POLITICIANS???????????????????”

This is not hard to understand at all, at all. May I give some advice to the Liberals out there: You keep screwing up because you really, honestly believe that the corny stereotypes you have of the opposition are accurate.

“I’M VOTING OBAMA BECAUSE THUS FAR HE HAS SHOWN & PROVEN TO BE THE BEST POSSIBLE 1ST BLACK PRESIDENT”

You know, the day Barak Obama gave his acceptance speech was the same day Martin L. King said “I have a deam that one day people will not be judged based on the color of their skin but on the content of their character.”

And your vote for Obama will not be based on the content of his character, but on the color of his skin. Sad, just absolutely sad…

“YES AS A REDEFINED ATHEIST I KNOW I AM CHOOSING & COMPROMISING HERE INORDER TO VOTE FOR THE BEST AVAILABLE WHO IS A CHRIST LOVER. UNFORTUNATLY IN THIS CRAZY WORLD TO GET THINGS DONE SOMETIMES, NOT ALL THE TIME LIKE BULLDADA SEEMS TO, ONE HAS TO CHASE IT’S TALE NOW & THEN ! ! ! ! ”

Best to leave on a lighter note, so Bulldadda, here’s three examples of when I’m actually using satire, like you strangely accused me of. Hopefully, somebody will laugh. And this is what I mean by football:
