Gah.

Usually I can come up with something intelligent to say in the face of dumbasses adversity. But, gah! If I hear “and I told the Congress, ‘thanks but no thanks‘ on that Bridge to Nowhere” ONE. MORE. TIME. my head might explode.

She did not say that. This morning on NPR Bill Adair of PolitiFact.com summed it up nicely

“It’s not that she really killed it — but she did perform the last rites.”

Honestly, my head is spinning.

Things I’ve learned on Facebook (which, I’m a little embarassed to say I just joined recently – was I the last hold-out?)

  • John McCain made the following joke

“Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father.”

Want more? Go read Women Against Sarah Palin. I understand that largely people vote for the top of the ticket, not the bottom, but given McCain’s age, she could be the 45th POTUS. Who really thinks that’s a good idea?

8 smart people left their mark:

    Amen sister! That is exactly right. McCain is old and is scares the hell out of me that Sarah could be the next President. She does not speak for anybody that I know. And what an idiot John McCain is…lets not hold the people who rape responsible! Dumbass.

    Lastly, you aren’t the last to hold out. I don’t have a Facebook.

    I like you so much I could poke you. If I was into that sort of thing. And now you’ve given me a whole new website to read and fuel my GAH-ing.

    And Tracie–don’t join.

    The fact that she calls it “the Congress” makes me want to . . . I’ll leave it at gah. Any self-respecting politician (particularly one up for VP) should know it’s a PROPER FREAKING NOUN and it doesn’t need an article. She’s been on the national campaign trail now for what, 10 days? She should know better.

    Oh yeah, and I hate her guts due to her opinions too.

    If she gets elected, we’re moving to Canada. They need teachers in Canada, right?

    Palin and McCain scare the hell out of me. It’s like, on the one hand we have a piece of fruit so close to perfect that it’s miraculous. And on the other hand, there’s a rotting vegetable filled with maggots. Which one will we be eating for the next four years?
