Big Dan's Big News Sep 9, 2008...American Idiot Edition

Ron Popeil: the greatest salesman of all time! "Set it, and forget it!" Right, Ron? Ron Popeil must be proud of the Republicans! They can sell BULLSHIT better than anybody!

Breathtaking BULLSHIT!!!

If you run an ad saying you were AGAINST the "Bridge to Nowhere", and you were FOR the "Bridge to Nowhere", that is Breathtaking BULLSHIT!!! Everything that comes out of a Republican's mouth is a LIE! "Set it, and forget it!", right Ron? The American Idiots will buy it!!! But let's put the blame where the blame lies, with YOU! YOU are the American Idiot targeted with this BULLSHIT!!! YOU have allowed the Republicans to LIE to you, and you still vote for them! They market their candidates like toothpaste, all image and no substance like a Ron Popeil infomercial. Why else would you even consider Sarah Palin? You never heard of her before McCain slapped YOU in the face and picked her for his VP...now she's just what YOU need to fight "the terrorists"! "Her husband won a snowmobile race", "She gutted a moose"...FUCK YOU! AMERICAN IDIOT!

Here's the Alaska news article from 2006 where Sarah Palin says she's for the "Bridge to Nowhere"

In the 2006 debate, Palin was asked whether she supported this earmark, or whether she would pledge to cancel it as governor. Rather than responding with “thanks but no thanks” to federal funding for this “access” road, Palin said:

"I wouldn’t [cancel the project]. I’m not going to stand in the way of progress that our congressional delegation — in the position of strength that they have right now — they’re making those efforts for the state of Alaska to build up our infrastructure. I would not get in the way of progress."

Here's the Maverick/Maverickette's ad where they say Sarah Palin "was against the 'Bridge to Nowhere'":

YOU are an IDIOT!!!

Palin Said Mortage Giants Are ‘Too Expensive To The Taxpayers.’ Speaking in Colorado Springs, CO, Palin said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had “gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers.” The companies, however, aren’t taxpayer funded.

Palin Left Wasilla $20 Million In Debt. As mayor of Wasilla, Palin cut taxes while simultaneously expanding the town’s operating budget by almost $2 million. She ended her term in 2002 with Wasilla $20 million in debt.

Palin Obtained $27 Million In Earmarks As Mayor Of Wasilla.

Sarah Palin: “I’ve been so focused on state government, I haven’t really focused much on the war in Iraq." Sarah Palin has never been to Iraq.

Palin Believes That The Iraq War Is A Task ‘From God.’

Palin Believes The Iraq War Was Fought Over Oil. “We are a nation at war and in many [ways] the reasons for war are fights over energy sources,” Palin told BusinessWeek in an interview.

Palin Obtained $27 Million In Earmarks As Mayor Of Wasilla. As mayor of Wasilla, AK, Palin “hired a private lobbyist to help the tiny town secure earmarks from [Sen. Ted] Stevens.” “The town obtained 14 earmarks, totaling $27 million between 2000-2003.”

Palin Believes It Is ‘God’s Will’ To Build A Natural Gas Pipeline. Speaking to the Wasilla Assembly of God church in June, Palin said, “I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that,” referring to a $30 billion national gas pipeline project.

Palin Supports Teaching Creationism In Public Schools. In a 2006 gubernatorial debate, Palin “said she thinks creationism should be taught alongside evolution in the state’s public classrooms.” But as governor, Palin kept her campaign pledge to not push the idea in the schools.

Palin Opposes Abortion Even In Cases Of Rape Or Incest. In 2006, Palin said that even if her daughter were raped, “I would choose life.” She said that she would support abortion only if the mother’s life were in danger.

Palin Slashed Funding To Help Teenage Mothers. Earlier this year, Palin used a line-item veto “to slash funding for a state program benefiting teen mothers in need of a place to live.” Funding for Covenant House Alaska, which provides transitional housing for teen mothers, was cut by 20 percent — from $5 million to $3.9 million.

Palin Supports Abstinence-Only Policies. In 2006, the Eagle Forum Alaska asked Palin whether she would “support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education.” Palin replied, “Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.”

Palin Forced Top Wasilla Employees To Resign As Loyalty Test. As Mayor of Wasilla in 1998, “asked all of the city’s top managers to resign in order to test their loyalty to her administration.”[

Ousted Former State Official Accused Palin Of Pressuring Him To Fire Trooper. Palin allegedly “tried to get a state trooper fired and she then fired the trooper’s boss because he wouldn’t act on her request.” Palin’s sister was involved in a “bitter child custody battle” with the trooper.

Palin Cheered On the Alaskan Independence Party. Six months ago, Palin “told members of the Alaskan Independence Party” — who advocate for a vote on secession from the union — to “keep up the good work” and “wished the party luck on what she called its ‘inspiring convention.’” Palin and her husband attended the party’s convention in 2000, and “for all but two months from 1995 to 2002, the governor’s husband was registered as an Alaskan Independence Party member.” George Clark, the vice chair of the party, claims that Palin was a member of the party “before she got the job as a mayor of a small town.” The McCain campaign denies the charge.
