Dear so and so

Dear Sarah “Kill it Unless it’s Still on the Inside” Palin,

The answer to the question “are abortion clinic bombers terrorists?” is a simple yes, you stupid zealot. There is no doubt that the answer is yes. In case you have any doubt here is the dictionary definition of terrorism: The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons. Furthermore, a person who uses or advocates for terrorism is in fact a terrorist. End of argument.

And just to be clear, clinics where abortions are performed are typically Women’s Health Centers and provide a lot of other services besides abortion. This includes care for expecting mothers who plan on giving birth. So, when a domestic terrorist bombs a clinic they are not only endangering the lives of, in your warped perception of reality, the “guilty” who would perform and get an abortion but also the “innocent” who have no intention of getting an abortion. I’m sure you and your radical evangelical buddies would just consider this collateral damage but that is not how most of America–real and fake–see it. By the way, that is also not how Jesus or your god would see it either. So maybe besides reading the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights you should also add the Bible and The Ten Commandments to your reading list (after you are done reading every paper in the world that crosses your desk of course).

Sincerely,

Iceberg Wedge

Question: Is hate too strong a word? Answer: No!

In tonight’s NBC News interview with Brian Williams, McCain explains that the “elites” are located in D.C. and New York City:

WILLIAMS: Who is a member of the elite?

PALIN: Oh, I guess just people who think that they’re better than anyone else. And– John McCain and I are so committed to serving every American. Hard-working, middle-class Americans who are so desiring of this economy getting put back on the right track. And winning these wars. And America’s starting to reach her potential. And that is opportunity and hope provided everyone equally. So anyone who thinks that they are– I guess– better than anyone else, that’s– that’s my definition of elitism.

WILLIAMS: So it’s not education? It’s not income-based? It’s–

PALIN: Anyone who thinks that they’re better than someone else.

WILLIAMS: –a state of mind? It’s not geography?

PALIN: ‘Course not.

WILLIAMS: Senator?

MCCAIN: I– I know where a lot of ’em live. (LAUGH)

WILLIAMS: Where’s that?

MCCAIN: Well, in our nation’s capital and New York City. I’ve seen it. I’ve lived there. I know the town. I know– I know what a lot of these elitists are. The ones that she never went to a cocktail party with in Georgetown. I’ll be very frank with you. Who think that they can dictate what they believe to America rather than let Americans decide for themselves.

UPDATE: Numerous readers in those cities note that they were the targets on 9/11.

I honestly hate these people now. Hate them.  Also, shouldn’t I feel sorry for people who are that fucking stupid?

You have got to be kidding me

Just when you thought the McStain campaign couldn’t go any lower you get Rick Davis spouting this bullshit.

“……Where was John McCain when George Wallace was spreading his hate and segregationist policies at that time? He was in a Vietnam prison camp serving his country with his civil rights also denied.”

and this

“Nobody knows sacrifice like John McCain does,” said Davis. “And the idea that Barack Obama didn’t address this issue directly, had his campaign walk out there with a half-baked statement that didn’t even address the comments made by Lewis as related to John McCain. Barack Obama should apologize to John McCain directly for the kinds of comments made by John Lewis yesterday and that should be the end of this sordid affair.”
