Palin supports $600 million 'other' bridge project
The Associated Press - 9-16-08
Gov. Sarah Palin may eventually have said "no thanks" to a federally funded Bridge to Nowhere.
But a bridge to her hometown of Wasilla, that's a different story.
 


 

An AHNC viewer sent me that picture of McCain - borders on creepy, eh? I thought it married well with the caption.

 


 

At one point, Charlie Gibson asked Palin about the Bush doctrine, but she didn't know what it was. But, you know, to be fair, even Bush doesn't know what the Bush doctrine is." --Jay Leno

"Sarah Palin was also asked if we might have to go to war with Russia, and she said, 'Perhaps so.' Isn't that like a magic eight ball kind of answer?" --Jay Leno

 


Another Sexist Democrat, Oh My

 

Barack Obama and Joe Biden have been saving their fire on the stump for McCain and all but ignoring Sarah Palin. But a nervous supporter who introduced Biden in Flat Rock didn’t have any qualms about jabbing the Alaska governor.

“Barack Obama has made an intelligent choice for the vice presidency,” said Barbara Theaker from the podium, “How so very different this is from that bucket of fluff that the Republican candidates have chosen for the same position.”

 


 

 


 

Disturbing News


 

"Sarah Palin, in case you don't know, had her first real interview as vice presidential nominee last night. Charlie Gibson sat down and asked some very good, some tough questions. McCain people said they were happy with the interview and they may let her do another one, maybe in a month or two." --Jimmy Kimmel

Subject: Your Sarah Palin cartoons

 

I'm glad you don't portray Sarah Palin as a dumb woman in over her head. I loved the toon you did Do you know the difference between Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney? It showed she is comparable to being as tenacious as Cheney. You used fear in the right way.lol

 

It's interesting to see how a female Democrat, as yourself views Sarah Palin through your toons.

 

Why the NYTimes WaPo or the Comedy Channel hasn't hired you to do a comedy page for them is beyond me but I bet a lot has to do with it your being a woman. If you were a Marlboro Man in your website banner, Lars Casey, instead of you, Lisa Casey, you'd be making six figures.

 

Keep up the great work.

I made a donation and urge others to do the same!

Thanks Stan! Me make six figures? I barely make four. sigh

 

I cringe when I read statements from my fellow Democrats insulting Palin, calling her a "bucket of fluff" or "McCain had chosen a running mate whose primary qualification seems to be  that she hasn’t had an abortion." -- Carol Fowler

 

At least Carol Fowler apologized for that crude remark.

 

The bottom line is the media is misogynistic. Hell, so is most of America. The media beat Hillary up about her hair, her clothes, her voice, her laugh and the vast majority of US editorial cartoonists (99% male) loved to work the words bitch, shrill, witch, fish wife into their sexist Hillary cartoons. I know, I look at editorial cartoons daily for this website and was disgusted how Hillary was and still is  portrayed. And now, the Republicans are whining how sexist the media is towards Sarah Palin??

 

I won't denigrate Sarah Palin's accomplishments - I don't know any other 44 year old woman with five kids that is a governor of a state. But don't think I won't hesitate to make fun of her policies such as the toon I did where Palin is saying "Shooting wolves from a helicopter is nature's birth control" -  I don't need to take cheap shots and call her sexist names, her actions speak for themselves.

 

Thanks again for the kind words, Stan. Everyone needs to be appreciated. Deep curtsy.

 


Hillary's Opinion of Palin

 

Sen. Hillary Clinton, who came close to making history as the first female presidential nominee, concedes that Gov. Sarah Palin has created a lot of excitement as a possible history-making first female vice president.

"Senator Larry Craig asked the court on Wednesday to void the guilty plea he made, following his arrest last year in a bathroom sex sting operation. Then, when the request was denied, he asked if he could use the bathroom." --Amy Poehler

During these serious times, people of all faiths should remember these four religious truths:


1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's chosen people.


2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.


3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.


4. Baptists and Methodists do not recognize each other at Hooters.
