It's amazing. All of you are willing to give Obama a chance when he has even less experience running anything than does Ms. Palin. After all, Omama decided to run for president 2 years into his first senate term. He is the most pathetic pawn of the far left wing of the democratic party and one that does not reflect the overwhelming majority of this country. All of you in California and New York (and the Pacific Northwest) should perhaps travel outside of your tiny circles of friend and meet "real" Americans who identify with her. Trust, me, her story will resonate with most Americans. Granted, she's not a style-maven, but neither is Biden with his awful hair plugs. I love Palin's story, and I am thrilled she is on the GOP ticket. Oh, by the way, Hillary gotten to where she has in big part by being the President's wife. At least Sarah Palin has done everything ON HER OWN. Typical liberals who claim to be open-minded and tolerant, except when it concerns anyone conservative.

This is anon. 12:06.

Also, not every woman is "pro-choice" or pro-abortion as is the correct term. I happen to be pro-life (not anti-choice- when the choice is to TAKE A HUMAN LIFE. Deal with the truth of abortion. Choice happens WHEN you decide to have sex with someone, not after you have created a life. Also, why has no-one addressed the fact that the no. 1 side of the Democratic ticket has about as little experience as the no.2 spot on the Republican ticket. Obama is ALL talk, and has NOT ONE accomplishment to his name. PATHETIC that he is leading the democratic ticket. By the way, I am a woman of color, I live in NYC, I am pro-life, I went to a top liberal arts college, and I am a republican. Holy crap!!!! Some people actually think for themselves, rather than jump on the Obama bandwagon when he has nothing to offer.

Jennifer - I am with you. It's insulting, or at least it should be. Although, I must admit, it's just so laughable and desperate a choice that I am having a hard time being offended. I don't expect more from McCain, though (at least this compromising version of him), so I can't be too surprised.

We liberals should give her more of a chance. Remember we are supposed to be open-minded to advancing womens' careers wherever we can. To this date the highest ranking woman in politics in the history of our country is Condoleeza Rice.

But let's take an objective look at just a Sarah Palin's achievements.

Here is a woman who has busted through the good ole boy network in politics, saved U.S. taxpayers $400 million by killing the Bridge to Nowhere, has served as Chief Executive of Alaska for 2 years, is the Chair of the Interstate Oil and Compact Commission [promotes conservation and protection of oil] and is passionate about preserving our environment.

When Bill Clinton ran for president, the only positions he had held was State Governor and Attorney General for Arkansas. And we put him in charge of our country.

I say "heck ya" for a woman who stands up for what she believes in, and has successfully done it in a state where the cronyism of men dominates. Even though we may not all agree with her on every issue we should keep our minds open and give her a chance.

Rock on, Sarah.

First: where is the Pacific Northeast? Colville, WA? Idaho?

Second: Isn't that a gross generalization?

Third: "You continue to believe that anyone outside of these states/areas could not possibly have an intelligent thought."

What anyone here has said to make your statement true? I think your point is that you are a bit sour because nearly everyone else commenting here is left-leaning and doesn't like your candidate. Thats fine. However, I don't think anyone has suggested that people in, say, Kansas couldn't possibly have a "intelligent thought."

As free-thinking individuals in a free country, I'm surprised at the hypocrisy of the Democratic party-- the "sympathetic" and "non-discriminating" party, pointing the finger at someone and calling her "small town," "gun-toting" and "extremist." Disagree with her politics, but don't attack her lifestyle. It's a little, shall I say, elitist.

It is not expected that all women are pro-choice. No one stated that. You can be anti-abortion and still be pro-choice - while your personal religion or beliefs would preclude you from making that choice in your own life, you can still respect the right of others to make their own choice. You, of course, can also go whole hog and be anti-abortion and anti-choice.

Anon 4:50
"We liberals should give her more of a chance"? I didn't sign up to be more advancing of someone's career just because they have a uterus. {See: Sandra Day O'Connor, Rice...} I can respect her achievements, but many of her political views are antithetical to mine.

Wouldn't you bet that if a 'liberal' woman politician had given birth last April, as Palin did, and had returned to the Governer's office three days after having the baby, as Palin did, that the religious right and the Fox news pundits would have had a few unsavory things to say about that? Imagine how they would characterize that politician.

Also, pro-choice does NOT equal pro-abortion. If you claim that, you're obviously too dumb to get any of the points made in these comments.

Obama actually cares about helping the poor and doing what's good for people in America (jobs, healthcare, education) rather than making the rich richer, kicking ass just because we can and screwing over public education, for just 3 small examples.

I am a Christian, but I do not expect everyone else to live by my personal rules, and neither should you. Separation of church is written into our Constitution, so get over it.

Oh, gee. A thousand thanks for the "urban dictionary". So here is what it says (I guess I could be the only clueless one, here, but that is doubtful):

A versatile declaration, originating (more or less) in hip-hop culture.

"Word" has no single meaning, but is used to convey a casual sense of affirmation, acknowledgement, agreement, or to indicate that something has impressed you favorably.

Its usage among young blacks has been parodied ad nauseam among clueless suburban whites.

Another possibility:

"Word" is the shortened form of the phrase: "my word is my bond" which was originated by inmates in U.S. prisons. The longer phrase was shortened to "word is bond" before becoming "word," which is most commonly used. It basically means "truth." Or "to speak the truth."
"Yo, I fucked twelve bitches last night."
"Word?" ("You speak the truth?")
"Word." ("I speak the truth.")

Well, voters can be a member of a party, but they can also be a member of a different party, they can be independent, they can be Libertarian, etc.


Can any of you enlighten us as to who, exactly, is behind this conspiracy that is using Obama as their "pawn"? Is it anything like the "handlers", Cheney and Rove who have used W as their puppet for the last 8 years? Who lied to get us into a war with a country that did NOTHING to us? Oh, that's right, they wanted to steal their oil and enrich companies like Halliburton. Is it anything like W never bothering to go after Osama bin Laden because he is connected to the esteemed Saudis that the Bush family is so tight with? Who is using Obama as their pawn, exactly??? Do tell.

you hit the nail on the head! that is exacly the same way the obama is a pawn, exactly.

now your letting the subject become too fragmented

lets focus

the issue here
is Palin

it has already been established that she lacks the qualifications to be the nations VP

The NYT today points out the strategy behind McCains choice
to select Palin

He did so out of desperation
He did it for the attention he felt he was lacking

These are all the wrong reasons to have done what he did

In short
McCain is a crapshooter
who even said so in his book

he said he "likes to take chances which are sometimes wrong"

This is why the GOP didnt want him in the 2000 race. They said he was too self-centered inclined to act impulsively, and that he had "anger issues" which has all proven true.

His actions in selecting Palin show that he did not have the United States interests at heart he only had his own ego insecurities at heart.

He selected Palin for the total shock value it would stir.

And look how its working for him. Here we are blogging away - but thats good too because so is every press in the free world and that is what will ultimately be McCains and Palins undoing.

kind of a tragedy :)
poor old man McCain

McCain says in his own book

"“Often my haste is a mistake, but I live with the consequences"

Haste ?

His choice in Palin goes beyond haste. It should raise mental competency questions. It should raise concerns as to is John Mccain dellusional? I mean
what if he died one day after taking office. Did he consider that?

okay to read what led up to his "haste" in picking Palin
just google "Advisers Say Conservative Ire Pushed McCain Away From Picking Lieberman"
Published: August 30, 2008

quote from this article

"a glimpse into how Mr. McCain might make high-stakes decisions as president.

At the very least, the process reflects Mr. McCain’s history of making fast, instinctive and sometimes risky decisions. “I make them as quickly as I can, quicker than the other fellow, if I can,” Mr. McCain wrote, with his top adviser Mark Salter, in his 2002 book, “Worth the Fighting For.” “Often my haste is a mistake, but I live with the consequences without complaint.”

you know I bet he may just be too old to operate a motor vehicle also

in a safe manner

but he probably has drivers 24/7 so thats good

i wonder if he showers standing up or if he has like one of those plastic octogenarian chairs to prevent falls

So your point is...

If "the party" nominated him, it's because he's black, not because he's qualified.

If "the voters" nominated him, it's because he's black, not because he's qualified.

You do know that the majority of the voters in the primaries were white, not black?

So you're a "strong black woman" who believes we live in a big nation of black-lovin' white folks???

You're wrong. There are in fact examples of animal species (primates like baboons) experiencing induced pregnancy terminations.

When leadership of a group changes, females still pregnant from the previous leader will be killed so that the previous leader's genes are not propagated.

Also, females have been known to intimidate and harass pregnant "beta" females to miscarry, so that these less-powerful females do not draw the group's resources away from them.

Why is it that as soon as there's a female candidate we disagree with politically, we go after her appearance? First it was Hillary and her cankles, now it's that Palin's hair-do makes people "queasy."

Well, imagine my surprise while I am just leisurely reading along on a Sunday afternoon beautiful blogs on design, and then, seeing a photo of 'Sarah Plain and Tall', I come upon these more than 100 vitriolic comments!

Previously, I was so impressed with the gentility of
these design sites, their stunning beauty, and kind comments. Now, here, I find unleashed hostilities along with foul language. Who knew all this lay just
beneath the surface? As they say, politics makes strange bedfellows.

The truth is, her down-syndrome child (if it does turn out to be hers and not her 16 year old daughters) will need her far more in the coming months than will her country. So, also, will her other small daughter following her onto the podium, to say nothing of the third and fourth daughters. John McCain should be ashamed of himself for asking this sacrifice from her. I understand it is quite an honor. Who among us would not have our head turned by such an offer?
But I find weakness in her answering yes.

How difficult it will be for her to manage the "red-phone" and a three a.m. feeding, which is a possibility considering Mr. Mc's age and health.

Another truthful reality is this: when John MCain began his campaign, she was not even yet Governor
of Alaska. She was still mayor of a tiny town. And word is that she left the town teaming with debt while she moved on to higher ground.

And where in the world do you suppose the CORSAGE came from? Did John give it to her to show his appreciation? I could not help but notice that it disappeared in a very short period of time.
First, you saw it, and then you didn't....

The last word coming across the internet is that
all the photos of her this year and last year are now being pulled because she is pregnant in none of them. (???)

I, like some of you, wait with bated breath the new hairdo, indeed, the entire makeover. Stay tuned.

Anonymous said...

She's a 44-year-old woman. It makes sense that she'd have a baby with Down's syndrome. At her age, the risk is greater than 1 in 50.

What doesn't make sense is that she put her fetus at risk by having an amniocentesis in her 13th week of pregnancy--and her only excuse is that she simply wanted to "prepare" herself in case there was a genetic problem.

Palin discusses the amniocentesis quite openly in People magazine. No stalking required.

"I do not think women intentially put their fetus's at risk"--Do you know what an "amniocentesis" is? It is not something you can have "unintentionally."

Palin CHOSE to have the procedure.

The fact that amniocentesis can cause miscarriage is well known. Doctors and hospitals that do the procedure are obligated to tell the patient about the risk, in writing.

Bottom line: Palin had no need to risk her fetus's life, but did so anyway.

That doesn't sound like someone who is all about the sanctity of unborn life.

Well, that's a comforting storyline: "If only no one had said 'cunt.' "

But the fact is, substantive issues were raised and debated all the way through the thread, even if the language got harsh.

I hate the over-wussy-ification of our culture: "You said 'cunt'! I'm gonna go cry! Waaaaah!" It's slamming the door on thinking and discourse and maybe even genuinely listening to each other.

So what if "it gets ugly"? Just keep your eye on the logic and the reasoning, and use evidence. Always look at the evidence.

It's just as ridiculous to champion Palin based on the fact that she's a successful working mom. I'm sure she's good at what she does as governor of Alaska, but this VP nod is total Peter Principle.

She may be a female but she's still Huckabee in a dress and I could never vote for someone who's so rabidly anti-choice. Issues and positions count, not cuteness or love for moose burgers or "she seems like a nice person". That's what got us into the lovely situation now with Bush in the top spot.

All of our comments show how much more Americans are taking part in this (4) year's presidential debate, and it's exciting just to see people actually care or pay attention.

Oh my. I don't know what more I can add to this discussion. Who knew one little photo would take the comments into the stratosphere but as for myself the whole Palin thing as taken my own sweet little blog into a different direction. I just can't shut my mouth on the subject.

I am completely against her politics on many different levels. I'm saddened by a lot of what I've read here today. Mostly by the comments that hide behind the name Anon and say things like Obama is a pawn. Was Mandela a pawn? or that because you are pro-choice it means you are pro-abortion. It kills me how some lump ideas with geography kind of like some on the right have given Palin foreign policy cred because of her geography. I love this blog because of the decor and the mix of ideas. Thanks Decorno!

The beauty of calling someone a "pawn" is that there is no way to disprove it--no fact or declaration that can be mustered to show "lack of pawnness."

I must say I love it when we get bitchy about decor more than when we get bitchy about politics. I think it's funnier when we all get bent out of shape about lamps and wallpaper. When we get cranky about politics, well, it's just less funny as a rule. Although winning comments are as follow:

1. Quarter Rat with:
Oh, I get it: prom + vikings = unplanned pregnancies! "It's a child, not a choice. Even if you were raped by marauding Vikings."

2. Anon with:
This looks like a scene from "Citizen Ruth" somehow. She should be holding up an old Hellman's jar with a plastic fetus in it. Better yet: a fetus dressed in a tiny fur-trapper outfit! (So adorable.)

3. Another anon with the long list of gay designers making a point about how can anyone love the work of this whole gay-centric design community then not want said fab homos to have equal rights in every way? The Paling/McCain homophobia is appalling.

It is a challenge to comment when the original post is eloquent. In this case, the post had no words, but the picture was... breathtaking in some hard-to-explain way.

She--Palin--is a figure of absurdity, as the picture shows, but also scary as hell. She's Teflon. She's missing something basic.

If I really think about it, her selection reminds me that Americans have always hated intellectualism. And her nomination is further proof that by and large, we hate thoughtful people. We always want to be played. Vote for Dubya. he makes y'all feel good. Gives you easy enemies to hate. Fuck reason. Fuck ambiguity. The Republicans are trying to spear Obama because he said that deciding when life begins is above his pay grade. They laughed like some how they have the answer. Yes. Right. Because issues of great moral gravity are so easy to discern.

I've never understood American aversion to people smarter than ourselves. Don't we want that? I don't study policy. I would like to elect someone who does.

Anonymous said...

I have to say that it is a treat to have finally heard from decorno. While I agree with her claim that we do seem to possess an aversion to intelligent leaders it doesn't take into account human nature. We seem to feel a need to be lead by people who may not show the qualities of intellect. As a nation many of us recoil at the prospect of being talked down to. Many feel a sense of fear when someone of supior intellegence discusses something of which we may know is true but cannot bring ourselves to admit, ie. guns. We as a country continually perpetuate the sense of entitlement at the expense of common sense. The idea of taking away someones gun is too much to bear for the general gun toting population. Somehow we have come to equate gun ownership as a God given right and anyone who even remotely threatens to squelch that idea is evil. Never mind that our children are getting their hands on them and using them against one another or, as what appears to be the case in Skagit county, someone with mental illness manages to brutely kill and mame. "It isn't the gun that needs to be controled it's the people". WTF???? We all know deep down inside this is not even remotely possible. Yet we continue to have this ridiculous debate. Intelligent? I think not, but we still cannot bring ourselves to admit it. Abortion brings people to their knees. The thought of taking a human life unbearable, and while I agree abortion has become, for some, their only means of birth control do we deny the access to abortion for the child who has been raped say by their father or even a stranger for that matter? What about the women who have lived under the threat of violence by their spouses? Perhaps being impregnated in an act of spousal rape. What if carrying that baby to full term commits that woman and child to a life of hell? Is it intelligent to project our sense of moral outrage upon these women and children. Religion has been used for centuries to control humanity. Instilling fear and gaining power in the name of God has and will continue to be a way to achieve the ultimate quest. Power! Very tribal, but instinctive to human kind. We all feel a need to answer to a higher order. And man will continue to corrupt and manipulate this weakness as long as human kind is here. As civilized as we would like to think we are we cannot reject our DNA. It's there and quite frankly we all will continue to be "dummied down" to because we want it that way.

My comment was only in regard to McSame's very low standing in his class and wasn't intended to reflect my opinion at all of the education one receives at any military academy. No, it was only a comment on the mediocre level of academic achievement of Shrub and now McCain who would be Shrub's successor.

The last five graduates of any program anywhere must be at the bottom of the class for a reason. My research indicates that McSame, like Shrub, liked to party and carouse more than he liked to pursue his studies.
