    Re: Joe the Plumber: "McCain appalled me"

    Didn't the reports of Palin not knowing that Africa is a continent come from within the McCain campaign? I have vague memories of FOX reporting on it.

    And I don't remember any news stations outright saying Palin is stupid. Not up to par with the debating and respone skills of her counterparts, yes, but not stupid. People decided she was stupid from her poor peformance in the debate and her poor interview performances.

    Do you have any links to people who are making these claims? I haven't seen them. There are a lot of "Liberal" minded people on this forum that I have great respect for; they are at least HONEST in their partisanship and don't blather this forum with lies and ignorance.

    Please show me who these Conservatives are that claim: "liberals are genetically predisposed to being thuggish assholes without an ounce of dignity or class between the lot of them."

    I guess you missed the follow ups:

    Palin Didn't Know Africa Was a Continent Source a Hoaxster

    Turns out the most ridiculous and generic "dumb polack joke"-style accusation about the dimness of Sarah Palin's bulb--that she thought Africa was a country, not a continent--was probably from an interesting and amusing hoax advisor to the McCain campaign--from the nonexistent "Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy"--going by the phony name (which is also the real name of another minor D.C. policy dude, unrelated to the hoax nope, there is a minor policy dude named "Michael Eisenstadt") of "Martin Eisenstadt."

    The New York Times has the details, including some earlier lies he had told (and been caught up on).

    The front "Harding Institute" site, with the brilliantly conceived line: "Welcome to the homepage of The Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy. A Washington-area think-tank in the truest sense of the words...."

    "Eisenstadt" on YouTube.

    Why do the Obamanistas care if JtP is in the news?

    I don't know to be honest, but hey, the guy is a hard-working example of americana, so if he gets a book deal or pegged more for his opinion, so be it.

Instead of Obama's election being a celebration of change and new direction in America, it has been more of the same with the left acting as if they now have some kind of carte blanch to act like the petty lowlifes that we have always known them to be.
    And this from the same fellow who was commenting that hyper-partisans are blind to their own stupidity! Apparently an insightful comment, eh?

    You can now post your apologies for insuinating that me stating this was blathering the forum with lies and ignorance.
