Stupid question-dodging Republicans and conservatives

First up, we have Mike Pence spending 5 minutes weaving left and right to avoid answering the question.

Then we have Kevin James yell at the top of his voice for another 5 mintues refusing to answer the question before finally slipping up and saying he didn’t know.

“If a guy can’t rape his wife…who’s he gonna rape?”

“If a guy can’t rape his wife…who’s he gonna rape?”

“There wouldn’t be an issue with domestic violence if women would learn to keep their mouths shut.”

Those are the comments made by Wayne Anthony Ross, the guy Sarah Palin has picked for Attorney General of Alaska.

I still can’t believe people thought Sarah Palin was a good pick for the Republican VP.  Oh wait, I’m sorry, she’s perfect.

Racist Republican representatives

According to Rep. Betty Brown, R-Terrell, apparently Asian-Americans aren’t Americans and I also know a few dozen European languages.

“Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?” Brown said.

Brown later told Ko: “Can’t you see that this is something that would make it a lot easier for you and the people who are poll workers if you could adopt a name just for identification purposes that’s easier for Americans to deal with?”

“You and your citizens”?  “Easier for Americans to deal with”?  Learning names means learning the language?  Seriously, WTF.

Republicans lying and dodging questions, so what’s new?

Here’s a couple videos on one of GOP’s new attack ads where they pretty much lie.  And they’re getting called out on it.  First one shows the video.  Second one you get to watch a Republican strategist squirm as he’s questioned over it.

Also, here’s a couple interview videos about Palin.  If so many Republicans/conservatives were really as Christian as they claim to be, they should be praying to God to save us from her, not thinking about voting for her (which is really what they’re doing)

McCain, Palin, and LOL

So McCain picked Palin for his VP.  And immediately afterwards a bunch of scandals surface.

First, she’s under investigation for some corruption.  Typical stuff, but here’s some juicy bit from Pharyngula.

” 3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?

SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.
Sarah and Todd Palin say their 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant.The couple said in a statement released by John McCain’s presidential campaign that Bristol will keep her baby.”

Can you say oops?  Now, what her daughter does is her own business.  But the fact that her 17-year old unmarried daughter is pregnant shows how useless her abstinence only education really is.  This reflects badly on her ability to do stuff.

Also, ” 11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.”

So according to her, apparently the United States’ founding fathers were still alive in 1954.

Obama, Endorsements, Abortion, and Elections

People like to point and say, oh look, Clinton gets all those working-class white voters that Obama has no chance of getting. That’s only when comparing Clinton vs. Obama. The problem is, when compared to McCain, she actually doesn’t fare that much better.

Among these voters, McCain beats Obama 46%-39%.

And McCain beats Hillary 48%-41%.

So basically, Clinton’s demographics may really be McCain’s demographics, which would already be factored into the general Obama or Clinton vs. McCain polls that are conducted regularly.

The Edwards endorsement tonight may also swing the numbers for this demographic a little towards Obama as well.

Obama also received the NARAL endorsement earlier today which will help him with Democrats but hurt him with Republicans and conservatives (who’re less likely to vote for him anyway). Also, LOL at EMILY’s List whining about it. If you truly think the equally pro-choice Obama isn’t pro-choice enough, then grow a pair and take your sexist all-women list and go vote for the anti-abortion McCain instead. Otherwise, shut up and keep your misandry to yourself.

Anyway, this year also isn’t like the others. Specifically, the increased Black, Youth, and Latino turnout (also check out the Q&A on it) will probably have a pretty big impact on the elections. Republicans can’t even win in Republican strongholds anymore.

Part of the reason McCain is even doing so well is that Clinton/Obama supporters basically hate each other right now. Once Clinton’s eliminated, there’ll be five or six months for them to remember what exactly McCain represents and realize that no matter how much they hate the rival Democratic candidate, McCain is even worse (heck, all I needed to do was go in the Politics forum of a major Christian forum to realize that)

And just to lighten things up, the current candidates as board gamers.

Fundies: Obama is the 11th plague

This is so stupid it’s hilarious.

Some U.S. Christians are not reconciled to McCain’s candidacy but instead regard the prospective presidency of Barack Obama in the nature of a biblical plague visited upon a sinful people.

Now obviously, the interpretation they want is that the Obama Plague is God’s retribution on America for not picking Huckabee.

Well, he’s a plague all right.  He’s a plague on Republicans and conservatives for the sin of electing Bush twice.  :P

Clinton implies Bush deserved win in 2000

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/04/bill-clinton-un.html

Woah woah, what did you just say? That the Democratic system is crazy? He’s actually pining for the Republican system because it’s more like the electoral college? You must be getting senile. Did you forget the electoral college is what let Bush triumph over Al Gore despite Al Gore having the popular vote, which interestingly enough, Obama has as well right now?

What is going on with the Clintons? First they said McCain was better than Obama. And now they’re saying the Republican system is better too. And that’s on top of Clinton staying in the race knowing full well that it is impossible for her to get a delegate lead, so the only way she’ll win is from a superdelegate coup, which will tear the Democrats apart for years. Why don’t you just go on over to the other side? Because you sure as hell don’t belong on this side. Sheesh.
