Spore creates Christian freak-out

Will Wright, creator of The Sims, has put together a new video game called Spore. It "lets you build a creature from scratch and help it grow from a grunting animal to a civilized space farer."

It is not surprising that certain Christian right wingnuts are up in arms about this "terrible" game which puts a face on evolutionary theory and actually allows people to pretend that, not only is there a god, but that god used evolution to set the earth and its inhabitants in motion. In fact, the game player can play god.

Frankly, I think it's about time that normal, well-adjusted people tell the Christian right wingnuts that nobody gives a rat's ass about what they think about anything! I think it's about time that normal, well-adjusted people tell the Christian right wingnuts to stick their noses in their bibles and shove them up their behinds!

Enough, already!

Do not "annoy" Queen Palin

[Photo is of Queen Palin in her younger years.]

Queen Palin, who was softly and gently interviewed by Katie Couric not so long ago, now says that the reason she spoke like an idiot was that she was "a little bit annoyed."


Well, yes. You see, Queen Palin thought she ought to determine which questions were worthy of being answered and which questions were beneath her. Here's what she said, according to the WaPo:

"It's like, man, no matter what you say, you are going to get clobbered. If you choose to answer a question, you are going to get clobbered on the answer. If you choose to try to pivot and go to another subject that you believe that Americans want to hear about, you get clobbered for that, too."

Oh, dear.

First of all, anyone who begins a comment with "It's like, man..." should be sent back to grammar school and if that person is running for vice president he or she should immediately be dumped in favor of someone who has grown past the high school cheerleader phase.

Secondly, would someone please explain to Queen Palin that she is expected to answer the questions posed; that when she is interviewed by the press, she does not get to choose the questions!

The problem, of course, is that Queen Palin doesn't know the answers. She has memorized the talking points provided her by the McCain campaign, but other than that, she's as dumb as a brick.

Or, maybe she was told not to discuss anything other than what she'd memorized from the little cards provided by Rove and company.

So, Palin refused to answer Couric's questions about what Supreme Court decisions she disagrees with other than Roe v. Wade, and she refused to discuss what newspapers and magazines she reads.

It should be obvious to all by now, that Palin probably doesn't know what the Supreme Court does, and thus would be unfamiliar with the court's decisions. It should also be obvious that Palin, like Bush, does not read newspapers and magazines, for the information contained therein may conflict with her worldview and predispositions.

Palin tried the same gambit of refusing to answer questions she didn't like, and using the "pivot" tactic, she commenced to discuss the aforementioned talking points during her debate with Joe Biden. Didn't work. The only people who forgave her monumental stupidity and perfidy were dyed-in-the-wool Republicans, who have their own credibility problems. Dems and Independents saw clearly that she was an incompetent fool, who, as Carl Hiaasen wrote recently, should not only not be one heartbeat away from the presidency, but shouldn't even be 100 heartbeats away from the oval office!

Now, like all stupid, perfidious, lying Republicans, Palin has headed off to Fox News. Perhaps they'll give her the respect an empty-headed queen deserves.

Palin & McCain - the continuing Republican meltdown

A guest post by Bob Poris

Palin is not qualified to run a hot dog stand!

I hope the handful of U.S. citizens who reside in Alaska are happy with her and her friends.

Palin's husband, name of Todd, wants to secede from the Union and she has to be cleared of the influence of witchcraft periodically. Most of Alaska is owned by the same government that she wants to get out of the way; the one that pays for almost everything, including those gas profits which are shared among the residents of Alaska.

The situation in Alaska under the governor would seem to be a precursor to the Socialism we now have in the United States, with the government owning a great deal of our financial system. Palin is an idiot and McCain's choosing her was a an act of monumental cynicism. He should be ashamed of himself. Neither McCain nor Palin know the duties of the VP because neither care about the Constitution anymore than do Cheney or Bush. Now that we cured the problem of not allowing a large bank to fail by creating two even larger entities that certainly cannot be allowed to fail, we should consider making it mandatory that all elected representatives pass a course in elementary Civics before being sworn in.

I am so glad I have no mortgage or debts. The Republicans that love the past fourteen years can live with their theories of trickle down. I p---s on them and that can trickle down. I have been a disabled vet longer than McCain, am smarter and have no thoughts of becoming President. He should retire to one of his homes and drive his many cars around. He has never drawn a paycheck or paid for his schooling, his health care, etc., in his life. All his income (other than his allowance from his wife) has derived from the same government he thinks should get out of the way. Even the five planes he crashed were paid for by the government. He is a devoted Socialist but doesn’t know it.

I am disgusted with a man I once admired before I reviewed his voting history. He is an ancient warrior and should be fighting the crusades back a few centuries.

I like the thought of a black family in the White House with white servants. It will be an improvement over the current occupants!


Sarah Palin - a perverse, perfidious performer

It must be all part of an elaborate game for Ms. Palin. A game in which she makes up the rules. A game which allows her to say anything and do anything to win.

Today, in Colorado, Palin, that human impostor from the north, had the unmitigated gall to accuse Senator Barack Obama of "palling around with terrorists" because the good senator, at some time in the distant past, actually sat on the same charity board with a former radical from the 1960s, one Bill Ayers.

Jesus Christ! Is this woman crazy, or just plain evil, or both? Speaking in Englewood, Colorado, Palin the perfidious, said, according to the AP, that "Obama seems to see the U.S. as being so imperfect that, in her words, 'he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.'"

Measure that against Joe Biden's words to the effect that he may disagree with people on a number of issues, but he does not question their motives. That may be a bit of hyperbole, but at least it's on the right track.

Palin has no moral compass, no inner integrity.

She shoots mooses, and shoots from the hip, and now, shooting with her mouth, she tries to destroy a United States senator, the man representing millions of American voters, by raising an issue that had no validity to begin with and has long been put to bed, and rightly so!

Reaching down to the depths of her depravity, Ms. Palin embraces character assasination instead of dealing with the issues. Not even her dipshit Republican sponsors truly believe that Obama is "palling around with terrorists who would target their own country."

But then again, Ms. Palin knows nothing about the issues as evidenced by her performance in the debate with Joe Biden. She knows how to wink, and smirk, and snort, and wrinkle her nose, and engage in light-hearted banter. But the head is empty!!!

Ah, and do not forget: John McCain is responsible for this skirted monstrosity!

George W. Bush in a skirt

Don't you just love it? When the "Troopergate" investigation began looking into Palin's actions with regard to getting her ex-brother-in-law fired, she said she welcomed the quest and she wanted the truth to come out.

Suddenly, she doesn't want the truth to come out. Someone has said that Palin is George W. Bush in a skirt. That's about as accurate a statement as can be made about this fake "reformer" from Alaska!

Her minions are refusing subpoenas which would require them to tell the truth under oath. Her lawyers have now filed an "emergency" appeal to the Alaska Supreme Court to try to halt the investigation under the specious charge that it is "politically" motivated.

We have had crooks and criminals in the White House for nearly eight years! We sure as hell don't need another four years of the same kind of miscreants inhabiting the highest offices of our land!

Palin winked!

Yes, she did. During tonight's debate, Sarah Palin, in her desperate attempt to win over the audience, actually WINKED on camera. I suppose she thought, in her ignorance, that she shared a secret with all those fools who wasted 90 minutes watching her fumble from stupidity to inanity.

Some moron on NBC said, after the debate, that Palin did pretty well because she avoided the questions.

Try that on your next college exam or driving test: Wink and then avoid the questions. Write about something not on the test.

And this idiot thinks she's "ready" to be president.

Is this a great country, or what?
