The full crazy

with 3 comments

I am just excerpting a few nuggets, but this has to be seen to be believed.  Here is the general summary:

Two days ago, I listened to a 9-6-08 message by Bree Keyton, a young woman evangelist who had just traveled to Kenya and visited Obama’s home village and what she found out about his relations with his tribal people was chilling. And his “cousin” Odinga was dreadful. She said the witches, warlocks and those involved in satanism and the occult get up daily at 3 a.m. to release curses against McCain and Palin so B. Hussein Obama is elected.

And my personal favorite part:

The occultists are “weaving lazy 8’s around McCain’s mind to make him look confused and like an idiot”. Bree K. said we need to break these curses off of him that are being sent from Kenya.

So…yeah.  Be sure to vote in order to help stop the crazy.

10-year-old crashes van while driving drunk parents home

leave a comment »

The headline pretty much sums up this article.  10 year old’s dad was too drunk to drive and the other woman in the van was downing pills, so the kid tried to drive everyone home.  It didn’t pan out, and he flipped the van.  Oh, and his dad was wearing this shirt:

Palin on the role of the Vice President

leave a comment »

Gwen Ifill asked if the candidates agreed with Dick Cheney’s assertion that the Vice President is also part of the Legislative branch.  I’m just going to quote Bob Cesca in full:

More attention needs to be paid to the following answer by Sarah Palin. This response showed a complete lack of understanding of the very basic constitutional job description of the vice presidency and it echoed the view of Dick Cheney:

I’m thankful the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president if that vice president so chose to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the president’s policies and making sure too that our president understands what our strengths are.

But when Ifill followed up, we got this animatronic Ms. North Carolina display of nothingness and such as:

Well, our founding fathers were very wise there in allowing through the Constitution much flexibility there in the office of the vice president. And we will do what is best for the American people in tapping into that position and ushering in an agenda that is supportive and cooperative with the president’s agenda in that position. Yeah, so I do agree with him that we have a lot of flexibility in there, and we’ll do what we have to do to administer very appropriately the plans that are needed for this nation. And it is my executive experience that is partly to be attributed to my pick as V.P. with McCain, not only as a governor, but earlier on as a mayor, as an oil and gas regulator, as a business owner. It is those years of experience on an executive level that will be put to good use in the White House also.

WHAT THE CRAP?!

Senator Biden clarifies it for us:

Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history. The idea he doesn’t realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that’s the Executive Branch. He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that.

Sarah Palin reads every newspaper

leave a comment »

Or perhaps, none of them.  From Huffington Post:

Asked what newspapers and magazines she reads, Palin – a journalism major in college – could not name one publication.

“I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media,” she said at first. Couric responded, “What, specifically?”

“Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.”

“Can you name a few?”

“I have a vast variety of source where we get our news,” Palin said. “Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where it’s kind of suggested, ‘wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?’ Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.”

Here’s the full clip:
