A great literary work from Salon todayWeb Link

Sarah should read from it verbatim at her press conference, in Scranton Penn. , they will appreciate the nuanced quality of the prose there.

Quotes, for full text follow the link

"Palin may have been a boost of political Viagra for the limp, bloodless GOP (and according to an ABC/Washington Post poll she has created a boost in McCain's standing among white women to a 53 over Obama's 41).

But ideologically, she is their hardcore pornographic centerfold spread, revealing the ugliest underside of Republican ambitions -- their insanely zealous and cynical drive to win power by any means necessary, even at the cost of actual leadership.

As a woman who does not believe what Palin believes, the thought of such an opportunistic anti-female in the White House -- in the Cheney chair, no less -- is akin to ideological brain rape.

[ I like that "akin." Important to qualify these things, harry]

Sarah Palin and her virtual burqa have me and my friends retching into our handbags.
She's such a power-mad, backwater beauty-pageant casualty, it's easy to write her off and make fun of her.

But in reality I feel as horrified as a ghetto Jew watching the rise of National Socialism."

Hmmmm, very nuanced don't you think

How amusing, so Biden is preparing his escape from the Obama melt down already, he wants to preserve some dignity after the bubble bursts

This is what, the third try a the executive branch by this famous son of a Welsh Coal Miner

The rats are leaving the sinking ship , sorry about the use of 3 metaphors in one post, but this is really funny, bring on the clowns, maybe streisland can sing that at her fundraiser for Obama in LA, I will give that a pass. I am going to the other event.

I don't believe it. That is uncharacteristic humility for any politician, even Mrs Palin.
