As the November election draws closer, the leftwing wackjobs grow more and more visceral, malicious, and just downright crazy.
Whoopie Goldberg to John McCain:
“Should I worry about being a slave?”
Singer “Pink” on Sarah Palin:
One of the writers at the New Republic (no, not Scott Beauchamp, this time) attacks Palin’s Soldier son, Track:
Track Palin’s Temper
This seems a little bizarre, no?
The temper was a longstanding problem. Hockey is a raw sport, but Track pushed the limits and often got kicked out of games in Wasilla and at least once in Michigan. The parents who had watched Track grow up on the ice said he was very popular with his teammates and generally a pretty good student. But on the ice, he was an animal.
Curt Menard, a longtime family friend, said he would often sit next to Ms. Palin’ s parents to watch their grandson play. If Mr. Menard arrived after the game started, he said, he would ask if he was too late to catch Track.
“Track has a temper so sometimes you’d only see him half the game,” Mr. Menard said. “Get there late and he’d already be out.”
Not true. The kids involved denied he was ever there.
One of Obama’s latest lame, snarky ads claims:
“1982, John McCain goes to Washington. Things have changed in the last 26 years, but McCain hasn’t.
“He admits he doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail.”
McCain’s manual dexterity has been affected by the injuries to his body dished out by the North Vietnamese when he was a POW. Not that Obama remembers.
And of course, there’s the requisite “gotcha” questions and creative editing (READ: Distortions) via ABC hack Charles Gibson.
One ‘hard core dem’ photographer for The Atlantic Monthly was dismayed because she couldn’t submit the doctored photo she really wanted.
Controversial celebrity photographer Jill Greenberg, a self-professed “hard-core Dem,” deliberately took a series of unflattering shots of Republican nominee John McCain for the current cover of The Atlantic – and then bragged about it on a blog.
Greenberg, known for her heavily retouched pics of apes and babies, boasted to Photo District News that she submitted photos of the Arizona senator to the mag while barely airbrushing them.
“I left his eyes red and his skin looking bad,” she boasted.
Greenberg also crowed that she had tricked McCain into standing over a strobe light placed on the floor – turning the septuagenarian’s face into a horror show of shadows.
Asking McCain to “please come over here” for a final shot, Greenberg pretended to be using a standard modeling light.
The resulting photos depict McCain as devilish, with bulging brows and washed-out skin.
“He had no idea he was being lit from below,” Greenberg said, adding that none of his entourage picked up on the light switch either. “I guess they’re not very sophisticated,” she said.
The Atlantic opted not to use the distorted McCain shot on its cover, selecting instead a more straightforward portrait.
Yeah, the one with the ‘red eyes and bad skin’. But Obamessiah gets halos. Screw you, Atlantic.
……Greenberg was unapologetic about the assignment.
“Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for [The Atlantic] to hire me.”
……In a statement yesterday, Greenberg added, “The pictures speak for themselves. I took the opportunity to create an image which shows my feelings about the Republican administration and possible continuation of the policies of the Bush/Cheney White House.”
The Atlantic owner’s wife is a big donor to the Obama campaign. I’m shocked.
That’s the image that shows my feelings.
The dysfunctional MSM is performing as a campaign tool for the Dems, as it has for at least the last 40 years.
Every Obama photo op complete with adoring fans is given ample coverage while the massive crowds at McCain/Palin rallies gets scant attention.
Howard Gutman, a major Obama operative, attacked Sarah Palin for the audacity of being a mother and having a career.
“Your responsibility is to put your family first,” Gutman lectured as he singled out Palin’s Down’s Syndrome baby and pregnant teenage daughter. “The proper attack is not that a woman shouldn’t run for vice president with five kids, it’s that a parent, when they have a family in need,” should get out of the public sphere and stay home.
That’s a pretty blatant double standard coming from one of those open-minded equal opportunity liberals.
And of course, the usual gang of nihilist idiots at The New York Times, The Washington Post, DailyKos, Huffington Post, Democratic Underground, et al, are spewing some of the most cockamamie shit you will ever hear or read.
Jim Wooten has a take on why. The dems and their boy Barack are in a state of panic.
Barack Obama knows it. The election he had in the bag is slipping away.
The selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate has so thrown him off stride, as it has most other Democrats, that all the momentum he had has vanished. He’s getting panicky advice from everywhere. He intends to launch more and sharper attacks, abandoning any pretense of a new and different, more civil campaign.
Democrats know something, and desperation is setting in. They have a novice campaigner who wanders off message. With every advantage in the primaries, Obama couldn’t win the big states — New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania — against Hillary Clinton, even when he got to define the rules for running against him. She could never risk alienating the base she’ll need in 2012; John McCain and Sarah Palin have no such constraints — hence the panic.
For a “change” candidate, Obama appears to be a man locked in time, unable to move past criticism, unable to move from the grip of the Democratic left, unable to adapt to the changed reality that the campaign is not the referendum on the war in Iraq or on the administration of George W. Bush that he’d envisioned.
……Obama has the habit, too, of reminding voters of their doubts about him, as he did in reminding a Detroit audience that he’s been accused of being less interested in protecting you from terrorists than reading them their rights. And, when he professes love of country as his basis for refusing to allow the McCain campaign to attack his words, he raises questions about why he finds the affirmation of love necessary.
Obama will lose because with less than two months remaining voters won’t be able to get comfortable with him. He can’t stay on message and he can’t avoid sending signals that interfere with the message when he does.
McCain, on the other hand, has been superb going back at least to Obama’s European tour. Mainstream America is comfortable with him and, with Palin’s selection, conservatives who had their doubts are onboard. The GOP is energized and suddenly an unwinnable election is reversed.
You think the dems are nuts now? Just wait until McCain wins in November and Obama is sent packing back to William Ayer’s neighborhood in Chicago.
