Sarah Palin said if she had a sixth child she would have named him Zamboni -- after the ice rink smoothing machine. Nothing I could say could top that.

Does Sarah Palin Even Know What Intellectual Means?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Gov. Palin’s astonishing claim?
She’s a smart, “intellectual” dame.
That gal may be bright
And quite tough in a fight,
But her intellect’s woefully lame.



Disturbing News


"In this election, Obama is so far ahead now it seems the only way he can lose is if his supporters screw it up. But Obama's supporters have a secret weakness. They're Democrats. They are perfectly capable of screwing this up. I'm not sure if Democrats remember how to win an election. They haven't won an election since 2000." --Craig Ferguson

Mr. and Mrs. Alan Greenspan


Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan on Thursday admitted he was "partially" wrong for not trying to oversight credit default swaps, complex trading instruments meant to act as insurance against default for bond buyers.

Greenspan, who has led the U.S. central bank for more than 18 years, told the Congress that the current financial crisis is a "once-in-a-century credit tsunami," and warned U.S. unemployment would rise further.

Republican-Shenanigans News


"Palin told a bunch of third graders that the vice president 'runs the Senate,' which the vice president does not do. Not knowing what the job is? Even President Bush will tell you, the vice president doesn't run the Senate. The vice president runs the White House." --Jimmy Kimmel

Florida Steals More Than Your Vote


A Boca Raton defense contractor and prominent GOP fundraiser inflated the profits on contracts to provide fuel to the U.S. military in Iraq, costing taxpayers as much as $180 million, congressional investigators concluded in a letter released Thursday.

The Democratic leader of a congressional oversight committee said International Oil Trading Co. -- co-owned by Harry Sargeant, a longtime friend of Gov. Charlie Crist and the finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party -- has a virtual monopoly on military fuel contracts, allowing the company to earn twice as much in profits as past suppliers.



"John McCain mentions Joe the Plumber so much, I am afraid he is addicted to crack [on screen: photo of a plumber's backside]." And now, the McCain-Palin campaign is spread spreading the love to all the middle class [on screen: McCain and Palin mentioning 'Ed the dairy man,' 'Rose the teacher,' 'Phil the bricklayer,' 'Molly the dental hygienist,' and 'Chuck the teacher']. I believe they went on to single out Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer, and Thomas the Tank Engine. A key demographic. The only person McCain's not talking about is George the President" --Stephen Colbert

"In other words, Sarah is not the only Palin who got an upgrade. Almost $5,000 was spent on clothing for her husband, Todd, and more on the Palin children. Now, that's just one scandal. Palin has also charged the Alaska state government for over $21,000 of airfare for her daughters and $700 hotel rooms and went back and amended the expense reports to justify the payments, not to mention $17,000 in per diems she was paid to live in her own home. My God! They're a family of grifters!" --Jon Stewart






Subject: Palin/children at work


I’d like to respond to the email you printed regarding Sarah Palin being attacked for taking her children on official trips. As a working, single mom, I think it would be wonderful if my company would pay for my children to travel with me on business, but alas, it does not exist in the professional world. While it is admirable that Governor Palin wants to have her children with her, I wonder if she would afford that same luxury to female subordinates.

We are talking about a woman who had no qualms about charging rape victims for their rape kits, yet seems to have no compunction with allowing the taxpayers in Alaska pay for her children’s stay in luxury hotels. This double standard may be part of the reason this woman is taking such heat.



Hi Lori,

Sarah, is special, don'tcha know!


Is it just me or are children distracting in the workplace?


I'll miss Sarah, she makes for great comedy!
