Terrible Sarah the terrorist

By Capt. Fogg

Most people who only know me casually are surprised that I'm interested in politics. I rarely talk about it in this coven of Republicans. That's changed recently. I've begun to tell off the people who forward me these e-mails claiming Obama was put through school by Muslim extremists from Malaysia, that Obama is "palling around with people who attacked America," and, horror of horrors, was seen wearing a USMC T-shirt when he hadn't "earned" it.

It's hard to tell which GOP cesspool some of these things come from, but the business about Obama being best buddies with Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers comes from Sarah Palin -- you know, the same Sarah who believes in witches and knows all about Russia becuase someone told her you could see an uninhabited rock from a tiny Alaskan island she's never been to.

She's been making the Slime Circuit -- or cruising the Bullshit Belt if you prefer -- telling the folks that Obama is a terrorist and a friend of terrorists. She cites a New York Times article as a source, although, true to the Palin Practice, the article does not say anything of the sort and that's been affirmed by most of hte mainstream media. Of course, back when Ayers was raising hell trying to stop the Vietnam war by blowing things up, Obama was thousands of miles away and eight years old. They do, now that Ayers is a 63-year-old professor at the University of Chicago, live in the same area of Chicago and once did sit on the board of the Annenberg Foundation, but that's as far as it goes. Close enough, though, for someone devoid of conscience, uncaring enough for responsibility and in utter contempt of truth like Sarah Palin.

Of course, if having once said hello to a former radical makes one a terrorist, then the U of C, which employs Ayers as a professor, must be an al Qaeda stronghold, but I'm rapidly running out of cynicism here. I'm just too damned angry.

Actually, if anyone is effectively participating in terrorizing Americans and interfering with the democratic process, it's Slimy Sarah, and now we know why she was selected. It would have been damned hard to find anyone else low enough, un-American enough, and deranged enough to believe her own lies. She allows McCain to wash his hands and pretend to be unsullied. She allows bigots and racists to pretend they have legitimate reasons for hating Obama.

  • I have been a life-long atheist, but I seem to recall reading or hearing somewhere that christians, especially evangelical, right-wing, speaking-in-tongues kind of christians like Sarah Palin, are not supposed to lie. She lies about as easily and as often as most people fart. I wonder how she rationalizes that?

  • I seem to be not as upset by the smears, probably because Obama is so far out in front. McCain's clout will be pretty washed up as the money finds real leaders.

    Palin's future as a demagogue is assured. She'll be a spokesmodel for a certain group who will hold her hostage as their power has been waning essentially since Bush spent 2005 trying to sell privatizing Social Security, followed by Katrina, followed by losing both houses of Congress, followed by a long list of corruption scandals.

    Yes, she lies pathologically, and the Assembly of God of Wasilla, and all the Good Christians give her a pass because they want Mammon more than they want to be close to Jesus. This is hardly the worst of her lies, only the most recent.

  • I won't stop worrying until it's over. Obama's lead is small enough that he can lose it to a well timed sliming - and slime works.

    Sarah doesn't have to rationalize. I'm sure she believes anything done to stop abortions and birth control and sex education and equal treatment for gays are justified by God's hatred. Bearing false witness is such a small thing compared to the evil of compassion after all.

    Actually I'm not sure anything so close to reason as rationalization is possible for her limited faculties.

  • To the good Capt., hooray for you. This was a new low for these desperate people, and I will not be surprised by anything they do.

    The media’s continual bias in favor of Obama is not only disgusing, it’s against everything that America, a Free Press, and Freedom of Speech stands for. To suggest that there is no media bias in favor of Obama not only robs Americans of the truth, it insults the intelligence of the American people.
    A candidate’s track record, and associations are always a legitimate issue when running for President. Let’s take a look at the qualifications, judgement, and experience of Obama, who is running for President. Obama had 25 years to fulfill the potential he displayed as a rising start at Harvard Law School … and, how did he live up to that potential? … He chose to align himself with anti-American racist, Jeremiah Wright for TWENTY YEARS … along with Ferrahkan, Rezko, Ayers, and others. As a community organizer, he registered thousands of voters in Chicago … then, when he ran for the state legislature, he took away their votes, by disqualifying his opponent (a black woman) on a technicality. As a U.S. Senator, he voted present 160 times … he never called a meeting on the Afghanistan committee he chaired (although he NOW says we must shift all our military from Iraq to Afghanistan). He claimed Foreign Policy experience from a 9 day whirlwind photo op to 6 countries. And, he spent almost half of his tenure neglecting his responsibilities as a U.S. Senator, so he could run for President. Senator McCain served America honorably for 22 years in the military. He proved his love for America, as well as his honor, integrity and character, by refusing early release as a P.O.W., even while being tortured. He served America as a ‘contributing’ U.S. Senator, working across the aisle, for 20 years. If Obama’s Twentyfive year track record shows he lacks judgement, and can’t be trusted, who cares what he says about Health Care and the Economy! What Obama never learned is Character. He simply can’t be trusted … ask Jeremiah Wright, a friend of 20 years, who Obama betrayed for personal ambition … and, you Obama supporters really think he won’t betray you If he gets elected??? If he gets elected, you Obama supporters will be facing a HUGE disillusionment !!!

  • I find it interesting that the media is being accused of 'bias' in this case.

    Fact: Obama knew a University Professor in his neighborhood who was once involved in radical acts

    Fact: Obama served on a board with said person

    Spin (which I grew up knowing as 'lies'): Obama is a 'pal' of terrorists

    When the media seeks to correct lies, errors, and deliberate slander, this is not media bias. It is telling the truth.

    As an evangelical Christian, let me also affirm that sin can be in word, thought or deed. To deliberately slander and lie is just as sinful as murder, homosexuality, or robbery in the eyes of God.

    Christianity also teaches forgiveness. Ayers WAS a terrorist in the '60s. When Obama met him (and to this moment) he was a University Professor. I'm really rather disappointed in the witness to her faith that Sarah Palin is evidencing.

  • I guess McCain just doesn't want people to read his autobiography at Rolling Stone Magazine, so he distracts again.

  • Hey Howie - people who foam at the mouth like this don't get to use the word bias, OK?

    And by the way, track records are set on tracks - only tracks. Other records are other records.

    Your predictions are noted. Please come back and eat them later. They're good cold.

  • I am absolutely astounded by the amount of hate coming from democrats right now against Palin and Republicans in general. I thought you were supposed to be the party for tolerance, but it seems that you only tolerate views that agree with yours. We don't hate Obama, we are just very concerned that someone who even admits that he is a socialist is trying to run for president at a time of economic crisis. Fact: socialism ALWAYS breaks down economies. Look at history. Even Obama himself says that he would not do some of his economic plans if the country is in recession. Why would he say that unless he himself knew that these plans ruin economics. Socialism, even in its purist form also takes away the freedom of individuals, and as such goes against the core of economic values.

    As far as the terrorist associations, there is no doubt that he has some very sketchy associations. While most of them are just that, associations, there are a few that are established and notable. Bill Ayers did host Obama's political coming out party in Chicago (and Bill Ayers said as recently as the 9/11 attacks that he is not sorry for the bombing attacks and that he would not rule out that he would one day do that again, so it's hard to talk about forgiveness. That is almost an exact quote). Also, Obama's association with ACORN is well documented. ACORN is a radical group that uses terrorist-like actions (in the purest sense of the word. They use terror, but are not recorded as killing people) to intimidate people. They are currently under investigation for massive voter fraud and other unethical behavior. Worst of all, their primary goal was to get banks to lend risky loans to low income people--the very thing that caused this economic crisis. On this very class action lawsuit about risky loans, OBAMA was their chief lawyer. In addition, Obama trained their new recruits. All of this along with his many other more distant associations with terrorists make a very sketchy situation indeed.

  • Hi Anonymous (please leave a name next time... it's awkward talking to 'Anonymous'),

    A) I'm not a Democrat. I'm a follower of Jesus Christ.
    B) Hate may be coming out, but it is not limited to Democrats. Regardless of sourc, it is not edifying.

    You may also want to check your facts, as I'm afraid they are not ummm factual.

    Example: "Fact: socialism ALWAYS breaks down economies"

    Almost every democracy in Europe is a social democracy. Canada as well. China is rather more vague, but is definitely socialist in large part. None of these economies is currently on the verge of collapse... rather it is the US which is in danger of this.

    I'm also rather intrigued by your use of 'terrorist-like' to define the actions of ACORN. How exactly is what they do related to terror? You haven't offered ANY evidence to support this very aggressive stance. I suggest you offer some solid evidence whenever you make extreme statements like this... statements which promote hatred.

    Does that also mean that the Republican Party are now 'terrorist-like', (absurd, but if you seek to play fear tactics with the word terror, you had best consider it) since they are currently trying to intimidate people through fear by association? I'm speaking specifically of trying to link Obama to Ayers through rather vague grounds. I'm also talking about the desire to link Obama with extreme statements made by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. I've sat in a lot of pews, and occassionally the message is 'off'. But we are followers of Jesus Christ... not followers of the person speaking from a pulpit.

    You seem articulate, so I must also assume you are very aware of the word games you are playing at the end of your text.

    When you say, "Obama trained their (ACORN) new recruits", are you suggesting that Obama trained young people in intimidation, terrorist-like acion, and unethical behavior???

    Or are you merely hoping that people make that connection due to your use of language and linkage to extreme statements?

    Saying that Obama trained young people in registering voters, proper use of the legal system, and legislative action is probably more factual.

    God is a God of truth. If you take His name and call yourself a 'Christian', please remember truth regardless of which political party you favor.
