Dear so and so

Dear John McCain,

How the fuck could you have picked Sarah Palin as your VP? What if you dumb asses had won the election and then you died soon thereafter? A wingnut religious zealot retard as President?!!!!! Seriously John, that was one fucked up move. She didn’t even know that Africa was a continent……..a continent for fucks sake. Africa?!!!!!! What the fuck do they teach in the Wasilla school system? Sarah Palin is one child that was totally left behind.  John, don’t ever be that stupid again.

There is only one way to repair your image and that is to oppose the religious right extremists in your party while you are still in the Senate. Get that maverick back you idiot. Throw them all under the Straight Talk Express. And do it now.

Sincerely,

Iceberg Wedge

Let’s do this for Charles

I don’t need to add anything else. Just watch, be inspired, vote and get others to vote (for Obama of course).

Occasional John McCain Rumor #12

Pssst, not only does John McCain not speak to Sarah Palin much anymore, he apparently has started throwing his feces (usually has some in his diaper) at her when they are both on the “Straight Talk George Wallace Revival Express.”  Pass it on.

I just thought I would let you know

I just thought I would let you know that I have a crush on Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Skip the first half with Tom “had to leave the Congress in disgrace” Delay and go to about the 8 minute mark and watch Debbie do her thing.).

I just thought I would let you know.

Baracking out in PA!

Mrs. Wedge and I attended the rainiest and coldest Obama rally ever today at Widener University (go fighting Pride) in Chester, PA. We were soaking wet and cold and standing in mud and getting wetter and the wind was blowing. We had to wait in line forever and we both had bursting bladders and yet we were still a million times happier than every single McCain/Palin supporter that has ever existed. There were also 9,000 fellow wet and cold Obama supporters there as well. The fact that 9,000 people showed up in such awful weather says a lot. Meanwhile, due to the same weather, old man McCain canceled his rally in Quakertown, PA. This is probably because he would have gotten sick with pneumonia and no one would have showed up to see a crazy old coot talk about his scars anyway.

Here is some video from the rally.  This guy put up the whole speech on the YouTube.

The one thing I really took away from the rally: most everyone, despite the crap conditions, was happy and excited. This was the case as we walked block after block through the rain just to get in the endless line to get into the event. While in line strangers offered room under their umbrellas so we wouldn’t get even more wet. People were exchanging stories and names and emails. We heard stories about Republican family members who were voting for Obama. We were all telling our favorite Palin stories and laughing at the wingnuts. Meanwhile, we were freezing and the water was soaking through our shoes and I thought I was going to pee my pants. Then we get into the area where the rally is and we quickly realized that we weren’t going to be able to see or hear Obama hardly at all and then it started raining even harder and we lost our generous umbrella sharers in the crowd. And yet through it all most of the 9,000 people were still in good humor. Now contrast this with video footage of a McMoose rally or line to get into a rally and the difference is stark. Driving back to Brooklyn I thought about this contrast quite a bit. When me and Mrs. Wedge got home I read my buddy Kevin’s Blog (Rumproast) and he seemed to be channeling my thoughts.

……but the other prime reason McCain took a hard stumble is that he latched onto the dark underbelly of the Republican base after the convention like a dull-eyed barnacle, perhaps forever tarnishing his carefully-crafted maverick image. Adding Palin to the ticket would have been enough to adhere the knuckledraggers of the GOP to his campaign for the remainder of the election cycle, but McCain made the fatal mistake of letting sweet, sweet Sarah and her devoted flock of seething simpletons drive the message from the bottom (quite literally) up, gorging on their hateful gruel and belching it out in the direction of mystified independents and teetering Democrats who used to hold him in high esteem. A sneering crank whose rallies are filled with more blood-curdling boos than triumphant cheers; the stark contrast between the audio of McCain’s drool-encrusted, hectoring howler monkeys clogging the air of his half-filled halls with bilious bellows and the hopeful, we-can-do-this acclamation of Obama’s supporters is jarring, to say the least, especially when laid one-after-the-other on cable news. (Italics are mine)

Why is this? I mean really, why are the Republican’s so fucking angry? They act like Democrats have been ruining the country for the last decade instead of it being the other way around. Hell, if anyone should be fueled by rage and anger it should be us liberals who have had to endure 8 years of the worst presidency ever and even more years of a Republican Congress. But instead we are out there filled with joy and hope and pride for our party, for our candidate, for our country…all of our country.

We are truly on the cusp of something momentous and life changing. In Barack Obama we have found a “vessel” which we can pour our hopes and dreams into. While the other camp has conjured to provide us with an even worse nightmare than Bush et al has been. The choice is so obvious: tolerance vs. hate, unity vs. division, hope vs. fear.

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?
