You might be a Republican if…

4 March 2011
  1. You believe George W. Bush’s redistribution of middle-class tax cuts to the top 1% of tax-payers was good for America, but Obama’s plan to return it to the middle class is ‘socialism.’
  2. You believe stem cells are living human beings, but thousands of Iraqi children are ‘expendable collateral damage.’
  3. You believe tax cuts for billionaires is a great idea, yet you wonder why the economy has stalled, your job just got outsourced to India, and oil company executives receive $400,000,000.00 retirement packages.
  4. You believe the surge worked because the violence in Iraq is back to 2006 levels, which is only horrible, compared to what it was in 2007; intolerable. Besides, Brit Hume said so.
  5. You think trial lawyers are harmful to America, yet you support prosecuting some guy in Muncie Indiana who burned his 99¢ American flag that was made in China by forced child labor.
  6. You’re all for the ‘rule of law’ when it’s applied to Bill Clinton for lying about his infidelity, but not for prosecuting Karl Rove and Scooter Libby for committing treason.
  7. You think George W. Bush is actually a really smart guy, but his folksy manner just makes him seem dumber than he really is.
  8. You believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own, and that those who are born to poverty and never have opportunities for advancement, got what they deserved.
  9. You believe Ronald Reagan was a great president who had complete control of all aspects of government, but the Iran-Contra Affair was an insignificant scandal that went on without his knowledge.
  10. You believe Democrats tax and spend, but George W. Bush was a fiscal conservative.
  11. You believe Oliver North, who was CONVICTED of perjury, obstruction of justice, destroying evidence and accepting bribes, is a patriot. But John Kerry, who saved a man’s life while under enemy fire in Vietnam is a coward.
  12. You believe George W. Bush kept us safe from terror, and the failure to prevent the 9/11 attacks were Clinton’s fault.
  13. You actually believe Fox News is fair & balanced.
  14. You still believe Saddam had truckloads of WMDs, and that he somehow managed to sneak them into Syria, right under our noses.

    I can't take the hypocrisy any more!

  15. You believe Terri Schiavo was sentient all along, and Bill Frist had the ability to diagnose her condition by watching a 5 second video of her sleeping.
  16. You’re in favor of stronger prison sentences for drug users, yet your favorite radio personality is Rush Limbaugh.
  17. You complain about having to press 1 for English, yet you hire undocumented workers to mow your lawn because they’re cheaper than hiring the kid next door.
  18. Homosexuality is abhorrent to you, except when a Republican senator, the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, and a planted White House journalist get caught having sexual affairs with gay men. Then you suddenly feel sorry for them.
  19. The war in Iraq makes perfect sense to you, but any suggestion by Barack Obama that we target al Qaeda specifically is ‘dangerous and reckless.’
  20. You don’t mind that president Bush tortured men who were never charged with a crime, yet you’re horrified by the wrath of al Qaeda when they capture one of our guys.
  21. You believe the 1/10 of 1% of scientists who claim global warming is a hoax, and reject the 99.9% who say it’s real, because Sean Hannity and his friends in the oil industry have convinced you that science is a part of a greater liberal conspiracy.
  22. You believe patriotism means you should support your government right or wrong … unless a Democrat’s in power, then it’s your patriotic duty to call him a closet Muslim, challenge his birth certificate, expose his sex life and impeach him.
  23. You’re proud of your party’s ‘culture of life.’ Yet you support the death penalty for minors, you believe 600,000 dead Iraqis is justified because one of them was Saddam Hussein, and you oppose confronting the genocide in Darfur because they don’t have oil.
  24. You support prayer in school, as long as your kids aren’t subjected to Muslim prayers.
  25. You think Darwin’s theory of evolution is a loony fairy tale, and mankind actually began with two naked teenagers, a magic apple and a talking snake.
  26. You think $35 billion spent on health care for children is a waste of taxpayer’s money, but $1.7 trillion spent on a catastrophic war that has isolated us from our allies, decimated our economy and made us less safe was money well spent.
  27. You believe embargoing communist Cuba is sound foreign policy, but trading with China is just good business.
  28. You believe Bill Clinton was an immoral cad, but Newt Gingrich and Henry Hyde were faithful husbands (and Larry Craig just has a wide stance).
  29. You fervently defend the Constitution, but when president Bush got caught monitoring 300 million phones without a warrant, politicizing our justice system, hyping evidence for going to war and pardoning a convicted perjurer who just happened to be on his staff, then it’s okay, because he was ‘protecting America.’
  30. You were outraged when a gallon of gasoline went from $1.29 to $1.40 during the two terms of the Clinton presidency, but you didn’t seem to mind when prices tripled under George W. Bush, the “oil man.”
  31. You were furious when Bill Clinton pardoned international commodities trader Marc Rich, who was convicted of tax evasion, but applauded when George W. Bush exonerated Scooter Libby for obstructing justice to protect Dick Cheney from a treason indictment.
  32. With no evidence whatsoever, you complained of ‘voter fraud,’ and demanded that thousands of blacks be scrubbed from voting lists during the 2004 election in Ohio, yet when Rush Limbaugh asked his audience to illegally claim to be Democrats and vote for Hillary Clinton during the Ohio Primary in February to “stir up trouble,” a FELONY, you were okay with that.
  33. You believe Barack Obama should be held accountable for every sermon that Jeremiah Wright ever gave, but John McCain, who sought the endorsement of anti-Semitic, xenophobic, openly racist and homophobic pastors should be given a pass.
  34. You believe Barack Obama is either a secret Muslim, was actually born in Kenya, and his parents forged a fake birth certificate when he was born – just in case he should ever run for president, or that his father’s nationality disqualifies his son from being president, all because you read that on the Internet.
  35. You believe the 8 consecutive years of prosperity and strong economic growth from 1993 – 2001 was due to the work of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, but today’s recession is all Clinton’s and Obama’s fault.
  36. You laugh at how much better Barack Obama speaks with a TelePrompTer than without one, yet you never mention the fact that even with a TelePrompTer, every time George Bush opened his mouth, gibberish tumbled out.
  37. You still believe Barack Obama has somehow succeeded in fooling every government and independent examination with his “obviously Photoshopped” documents. Instead, you rely on Internet gossip, WorldNetDaily and Jerome Corsi as your sources for “truth.”
  38. Your conservative media spent more air time discussing Michelle Obama touching the queen of England’s arm than on the economy, the environment, terrorism and health care combined.
  39. You believe that we should get out of Afghanistan because Obama is “nation building,” yet for eight straight years of Bush’s bumbling incompetence there, you kept mum. Therefore, attacking Iraq makes sense, even though they never threatened us, but finishing off the job of finding Osama bin Laden; the terrorist who killed 3,000 Americans — Bush’s original task — is a dumb idea.
  40. You were furious that Barack Obama admitted in France that Americans have occasionally been “arrogant, dismissive and derisive,” but you cheered them on when Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld were arrogant, dismissive and derisive.
  41. You believe that Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget is an outrage, but never once complained that George Bush turned Bill Clinton’s $300 billion surplus into a $1.3 trillion deficit. And it never once occurred to you that Bush deliberately omitted the Iraq and Afghanistan wars from those statistics, which means Bush’s TRUE deficit was $3.1 trillion.
  42. You supported Gov. Sarah Palin, partly because you believed she kept a good Christian home. This, despite the fact that her seventeen year old unmarried daughter was knocked up, her son was accused of vandalizing 44 school buses (cutting the brake lines of school buses – HELLO!!?) and was given the choice of going to jail or join the military, and Palin herself was found guilty of abusing the power of her office. But Barack Obama can’t possibly be a true Christian, because his father was a Muslim, and his middle name is Hussein. (Besides, he’s black, and everybody knows that Jesus was a blond haired blue eyed white man.)

    Sarah Palin

  43. You believe the only solution to gun violence is to make sure everybody is armed to the teeth. That way, when some crazy person goes on a killing spree, right-thinking people will take out the killer, and tranquility will prevail throughout the land.
  44. You believe the mainstream news anchors are crazy, biased and filled with hate, but Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are rational, accurate and informative.
  45. You defend Rush Limbaugh’s right to wish for Obama to fail, and therefore, the failure of our republic, yet you call Democrats the “blame America first crowd.”
  46. You claim that the economic crisis is the fault of the Democrats, but never mention that it was the Reagan administration that massively deregulated the banking industry in 1982, and it was Phil Gramm – McCain’s choice for economic advisor – who completed the task for his pals in the banking industry in 1999.
  47. You believe the failure of the US automobile industry is primarily the fault of the unions, and not because management of the three corporations insisted on producing vehicles that nobody wanted. And you’re angry with the $28.00 per hour average wage of the work force, but you believe that the multimillion dollar salaries of the men who bankrupted the industry are perfectly reasonable.
  48. You believe Barack Obama is a “narcissistic megalomaniac,” because you heard Glenn Beck call him that once, but Beck himself is a humble man, concerned only for your welfare (brought to you by Goldline!).
  49. You believe anybody who doesn’t subscribe to Orly Taitz’ birther movement is a RINO, and those who do, are carrying the torch of Reaganism.
  50. You think this list is mean-spirited and biased, and even though you privately acknowledge to yourself that it’s all true, you believe the Democrats are just as bad.News Flash: Nobody has ever been this bad.

When spending is prosperous

10 September 2010

President Obama recently announced his intent to divert another 50 billion dollars in stimulus funds to repairing the nations failing infrastructure. Seemingly before the media scrum could regurgitate that fact to their audience, the GOP was up in arms with proclamations of an inevitable “Nay.”

It seemed very odd to me. I mean, I understand the logic behind the argument: spending at a time of record deficit is a bad economic policy. In most cases, I would agree. I can’t agree in this case though.

Just prior to labor day weekend, the latest job report indicated a national unemployment rate hovering just around 9%. While jobs connected to infrastructure would be purely temporary they would immediately put hundreds of thousands of people to work. We have a choice: Do we create jobs tomorrow or don’t we?

I’m regularly astounded by the right and their demands to decrease spending. It isn’t the demands themselves that have me befuddled but rather the way in which they suggest we do it. Ending unemployment benefits (which accounts for less than 0.02% of our deficit), reducing social services like food stamps (which accounts for even less of the deficit), cut backs in education and public services; These are just a few of the suggestions made in recent months.

It’s interesting that no one has proposed ending the futile war on terror. An effort that, so far in 2010 alone, has cost over 1 trillion dollars. Take a look at this congressional research – it shows the cost of the Iraq war to be over 750 billion dollars this year. The afghan war is costing over 300 billion this fiscal year. Add to that another 30 billion for enhanced security.

Is it just me or does it seem as though republicans regularly go out of their way to ensure no progress is ever made here at home? The 50 billion dollar infrastructure plan that the right intends to vote ‘nay’ on would put people to work who desperately need it while improving our highways, roads, rails, public transit, and other failing infrastructure. Meanwhile, every war effort put on the table gets a ‘yay’ from the right side of the isle. War efforts that have no discernible effect on American lives. War efforts that can never be won – Terror is an idea, not an enemy.

With elections right around the corner; What would you rather have? Prosperity? Or war?

Adam Hood

21 June 2010

Check out Adam Hood.  While he seems adamant about what he is saying, scarfs don’t lie.  Neither do over-the-top ultra-queeny whispering voices.  Does he really think anyone is buying this?

Adam apparently found salvation amidst a dark chapter in his life; heroine addiction, sex for money, etc.

It seems odd to me that we never hear of ex-gays who are clean, successful and happy.  I can think of possibly 20 ex-gays who have tragic and tumultuous pasts.  Not one who had a career, a loving home environment, lacked a drug addiction, or didn’t show prior signs of mental illness.

If it’s only those with gigantic issues who become ex-gay, it makes me wonder how immoral these religious cults are; preying on the vulnerable, the helpless, the lost.

I can think of a hundred gay men and lesbian women who do not have drug issues, mental illness, and are altogether stand-up human beings.  None of them have recoiled into the closet under the guise of spirituality.  …a spirituality, I might add, seemingly based entirely on hate and fear.

I can recall a number of other Bible verses which would seem to apply; Verses such as Matthew 7:1 – “Judge not lest ye be judged,” for example.  Then there are the less directly applicable but equally absurd verses – like those suggesting it’s acceptable to marry off your daughter to their rapist, or wearing a zipper is punishable by death, or that a woman was made from the rib bone of a man.

So, Adam, I’m sorry but i’m calling shenanigans on you.  What you say is not relevant and, dare I say, neither is the way you site your source.  One can not effectively justify choosing to have faith in the verses you agree with while actively dismissing those you do not.

Besides, doesn’t Adam Hood sound like a gay porn stars name?

British Petroleum: Now With Less Oily Revenue! (or “Turm-oil in the Gulf”)

15 May 2010

On April 28th, 2010, a massive rupture occurred on the ocean floor at the base of a BP oil platform.  It started spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico at a rate of between 200,000 and 4,000,000 gallons per day.  Various estimates take a varying number of things into account.  (Click here to see a real-time ticker of gallons lost.)  By any estimate, it is quickly becoming one of the worst man-made disasters in world history.  Other, comparable, events are the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989, the Dust Bowl of 1935, and the catastrophe at Chernobyl.

Satellite image of BP oil leak on May 11th, 2010.

Oil executives have been “falling all over one another,” as President Obama put it, to place blame on anyone they can.  Despite the estimated damage hovering around $10 Billion, all companies involved seem to feel as though they should not be held responsible for all the damages.  Transocean, the company that owned the faulty rig, claims only $27 Million in responsibility.  BP, the company leasing the rig, claims they should have no financial liability as they have already lost an estimated $450 Million in revenue as a result of the disaster.  Halliburton, the company which installed the equipment on the rig, has merely pointed two fingers: one at BP and one at Transocean.

That leaves about $9.8 Billion dollars in damage that no one is claiming responsibility for.

You may be thinking; ‘At least Transocean is a large corporation that pays their fair share in corporate taxes and in so doing helps further the social safety net provided by the federal government when needed.’  If you are, let me stop you.

Transocean Ltd.

Transocean Ltd. is located in the foothill of the Swiss Alps.  Switzerland only has a 16% tax on Transocean’s $4.4 billion dollar industry as opposed to the 35% tax rate in the United States.

Then the question becomes; Should the federal government step in and subsidize yet another private sector misstep?

No.  The good news is that there is a bill working it’s way through congress right now that would raise the financial liability amount for disasters of this type to $10 Billion.  If this bill passes, and in my opinion it is extremely likely, the three companies involved will (hopefully) be held to a much higher standard than they have so-far conceded.

Despite the potentially unprecedented amount of ecological damage to the Gulf region, many Republicans and right-wing supporters have begun to dismiss the dangers of oil drilling.  Some have even called for more off-shore oil drilling; emphasizing the nearly fool-proof fail-safe systems and overall eco-friendliness of modern oil drilling.

Satellite image of BP oil leak on May 9th, 2010.

It’s important that we push back against this agenda.  Don’t get me wrong; Oil has served us well for the last century… but it is time to move.  Even if every domestic oil field were tapped, the United States simply could not produce enough oil to sustain itself.  When drilling for more oil doesn’t get us anywhere and we currently spend $630 Billion on oil imports every year (mostly from countries with anti-american sentiments) — what is the next logical solution?  Green, sustainable, renewable, domestic, job-creating, energy.

America is in a unique position to make a huge leap forward in science and technology, to provide blue and white collar jobs, to ensure future generations have access to clean air and water, and to rob our enemies of the money they need to wage war against us or our way of life.  We’re in a unique position which may allow us to finally break the strangle hold oil companies have had on Washington for decades.

We need a total overhaul on corporate tax law and environmental protection and liability laws.  Companies that receive more than half their revenue from American markets need to be held accountable for their fair share of taxes.  Too many companies seek refuge from US tax law by opening small offices in countries with smaller economies; Hell, I’ve even done it.  Seemingly just as often, corporations are directly responsible for human tragedy on varying levels and we lack contemporary law to dictate how best to handle the situation.

nAZi LAW

13 May 2010

“Papers, please.” is a line of dialog that can be found in dozens of movies and has become synonymous with Nazi Germany.  Following the passing of Arizona’s so-called ‘anti-immigration’ legislation, we may find similar dialog in future films about the American desert.

Arizona State Flag

Arizona’s new law, passed only a month ago, requires individuals to produce documentation that proves their American citizenship.  Failure to produce proof of citizenship may result in arrest and incarceration.  Such blatant disregard for an individuals rights is, in this writers opinion, completely unacceptable.  Thankfully, I’m not alone in that opinion.  It seems the federal government and the Mayor of Phoenix agrees, at least in spirit.

Then, to add insult to injury, a law that prohibits ethnic studies in Arizona was passed this morning.  That’s right.  Ethnic studies, banned.  African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, or insert culture here; all are no longer entitled to their history.  Any school that violates this law will lose state funding; a violation is defined as a class which “promotes the overthrow of the U.S. government, promotes resentment of a particular race or class of people, is designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group or advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.”

What’s more?  Teachers with accents are no longer legally eligible to teach English classes.  Supporters of the law assert that the teachers with accents will be offered classes to improve their dialect.  However, teachers who fail to meet the states guidelines will be fired or reassigned.

Add to all of this the recent Texas Board of Education’s decision to remove key historical figures from standard national textbooks and the overture of a re-imagined history begins to take place.  Perhaps a history in which Mexican and African Americans were once a blight on the superiority of American capitalist values.  An America which has always persecuted immigrants and, in some cases, it’s own people in the name of security and justice.  A history in which our forefathers fought not for a purely secular government but for a democratic theocracy.

On the subject of secular government; How is it that a school can lose state funding for teaching children about their unique cultural heritages but it continues receiving state funding when it teaches creationism?  There is a clear, well-defined, separation of church and state in the United States and with good reason: it protects both the church and the state.

I digress.

In any event, if you agree with what you’ve read here, I urge you to join the boycott on the state of Arizona.  Los Angeles, San Francisco, and a number of organizations have joined a growing list of people who are standing up for American ideals by boycotting Arizona.

Boycotting is easy.  First, there are a few petitions here and here for you to sign.  Second, don’t travel to or through Arizona.  Third, don’t patronize companies based in Arizona.  (P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Sky Mall, GoDaddy.com, Arizona based sports teams, etc.)  Last, tell others by clicking the share buttons below.  With a little pressure, Arizona will certainly revert to policies of non-discrimination.

Obamacare: Yes, we did.

22 March 2010

Congratulations, America.  After half a century and, potentially, billions of man-hours; We have passed healthcare reform and heard the collective voice of our Democratic Representatives chanting “Yes we can!”  Granted, at the moment the reform isn’t perfect.  The senate bill, which now only awaits the President’s signature to become law, has some serious flaws.  However, even with those flaws foremost in one’s mind, this is the most significant leap forward in providing the promise of healthcare to all Americans that has ever been made.

The Senate bill, H.R. 3590 or “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” was a product of Republican demands for compromise from Democrats.  They stripped away the “public option” and other aspects of the bill for the benefit of gaining bi-partisan support.  After the bill passed the Senate last December, surprisingly it gained no Republican votes.  As a result, the Senate bill has remained far from perfect but despite it’s imperfections the bill puts a stop to pre-existing condition denials, the termination of benefits when illness occurs, allows individuals to keep their health insurance after losing a job or while between jobs, and allows families to keep their children on their family insurance plan until the child is 26 years old.  These items alone are a large step in the right direction.

Even tonight, as the House of Representatives conducted a vote on legislation that would enable 32 million Americans to get private health insurance, every Republican voted ‘Nay.’  One can’t help but infer that Republicans have no interest in people remaining healthy.  They seem far more interested in maintaining the facade they’ve worked so hard for over the last 2 years; That Obama is a Nazi-socialist-Marxist-Jihadist-Muslim who wants to kill you and your grand mother.

Certainly the Senate bill, in it’s current form, is not perfect.  In fact, it has some major flaws.  Those flaws do not, however, out-weigh the benefits.  It is for that reason that law makers voted H.R. 3590 into law based on assurances from the Senate that it would in turn pass H.R. 4872, a bill of reconciliation which makes many amendments to the aforementioned Senate bill.

Unfortunately, only time will tell if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has the 52 votes needed to pass the amendments.  Estimates coming in today suggest the Senate has 59 votes.  A good sign.  If it does, this historic piece of legislation will become even more-so.  If it doesn’t, there will no doubt be many attempts thereafter to amend the law.  We will know for certain this upcoming Tuesday.

On a personal note, this feels incredible.  If you have ever emailed your representative on this subject, asked your friend to write or call, volunteered for one of the thousands of organizations which worked toward this end for decades; You are who should be thanked.  This legislation will allow a few people close to me to get the medical treatment they need and in-so-doing, possibly save their lives.  This legislation will enable me to have health insurance for the first time in almost 10 years.  For that, I thank you.

Congratulations, America.

Sarah Palin Weighs In

8 March 2010

The following is a direct quote from one of the most uneducated political opportunists to ever grace American media; former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin

SARAH PALIN (in studio on Meet The Press): “President Obama is weighing the nation down with his weightlessness-ness. I’m not going to use big words or fancy words. I’m just going to say what hockey moms and soccer moms around this great nation are wondering and that’s how can we trust a leader who might weigh less than a Victoria’s Secret model?

Leadership is about weight. It’s about weighty issues. Issues involving weight and heavy things and people who have weight to them. Leaders who are men like Churchill or Roosevelt or what’s his name there, that U.N. fellow from way back, Dag Hammarskjold. Meat on their bones.

It’s American to have weight. Get up on a scale, move the little thing there at the top. Hockey moms do it. Soccer moms do it. But jeez. About the only people who don’t do it are the French. And they’re Socialists. So you do the math.”

Yes, seriously.  Another eloquent statement from someone who, some insist, is a potential leader for the free world.

I’d like to dissect and respond to her ridiculous statement.

“President Obama is weighing the nation down with his weightlessness-ness.”
— No, Mrs. Palin, the only people bringing it up are members of the media.  The media and republicans.  Did you know Mitch McConnell said he would call on Congress to convene a partisan panel made up entirely of Republicans to investigate the president’s weight?  Well, he did.  Yep, dear reader, your taxes will be paying to investigate someones weight.

President Obama

“I’m not going to use big words or fancy words.”
—  I’d be surprised if you knew one.

“I’m just going to say what hockey moms and soccer moms around this great nation are wondering and that’s how can we trust a leader who might weigh less than a Victoria’s Secret model?”
— Granted, I don’t know any soccer or hockey moms but I’m willing to bet they have a few more pressing concerns right now.  For example, ‘how am I going to afford paying for health insurance for my family when premiums are on the rise and I just lost my job.’   I also like how you oh-so-subtlety inserted patriotic sentiments there with ‘great nation.’

“Leadership is about weight. It’s about weighty issues. Issues involving weight and heavy things and people who have weight to them.”
— Weight, weighty, weight, weight.  I get it.  You want us thinking the President has a weight problem.   Before I hop on that bandwagon though, could you explain how physical body weight relates to the figurative weight of a situation?  I mean, you seemed very eager to make the connection but then offered nothing to support the connection.

“Leaders who are men like Churchill or Roosevelt or what’s his name there, that U.N. fellow from way back, Dag Hammarskjold. Meat on their bones.”
— Great examples, Sarah.  It would behoove us to remember how your historical figures died.  Churchill?  Weight related heart attack.  Roosevelt?  Coronary embolism, or a blood clot in the heart contributed to by eating habits and obesity.  Dag Hammarskjold?  Plane crash.  Ok, you got me there.

Amount of population considered to be obese.

“It’s American to have weight. Get up on a scale, move the little thing there at the top. Hockey moms do it. Soccer moms do it.”
— It sure is!  Uniquely American even!  Obesity is an epidemic in America.  Again, I don’t know any soccer or hockey moms but, yes, I’m sure they do weigh themselves from time to time.  Good point.

“About the only people who don’t do it are the French. And they’re Socialists. So you do the math.”
— First, I’m willing to bet French people weigh themselves despite your statement to the contrary.  Second, France is a secular democratic republic…  Not socialist.  Maybe you’re confusing the name of one of their political parties with their form of government.  It’s ok, I understand, you get confused easily.

I’d like to call on the media to stop touting Sarah Palin as political figure, as a woman with ideas, as a thinker.  She is clearly none of those things.  What she is is a capitalist political opportunist who has found herself in the unique position of being able to profit from the general ignorance of America.  The more attention she gets from the media, the more her ignorance spreads.

I guess what I’m trying to say in this blog is this; Sarah Palin is a moron.
