Rethuglican Girls Gone Wild!

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Two Florida women on the “Palin Truth Squad” set up by the John McCain campaign have added their voices to the McCain-inspired controversy over Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” comments. You’ll recall that the insult — a longtime Southernism — was addressed at McCain. Efforts to depict the four-term senator as an agent of change are, Obama said, “like putting lipstick on a pig.”

It didn’t take long for former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift to accuse him of a “gender-based” remark that must have been directed at Sarah Palin — she being the only person in the campaign, Swift helpfully explained, who wears lipstick.

Yes, kids, a Palin Truth Squad. The woman who is supposedly ready to be President needs bridesmaids an entire squad to watch over her and make sure nobody insults Captain Underpants’s little Princess Sarah. Don’t tell anyone, but I got a photo of one of the squad’s secret meetings!

Original DVD cover.

The interesting thing is the the squad is made up entirely of women, with the exception of Princess Sarah’s lieutenant governor, Sean Parnell. Who knows, maybe he wears panties under his suits. Here’s a list of Pigs with Lipstick of members from the Captain Underpants website:

National Members Of The Palin Truth Squad:

Former Governor Jane Swift (R-MA)
Governor Linda Lingle (R-HI)
Lt. Governor Sean Parnell, (R-AK)
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
Congresswoman Thelma Drake (R-VA)
Congresswoman Mary Fallin (R-OK)
Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX)
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)
Congresswoman Candice Miller (R-MI)
Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-FL)
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
Congresswoman Heather Wilson (R-NM)
Jo Ann Davidson, RNC Co-Chair
Rosario Marin, Former U.S. Treasurer
Meg Stapleton, Former Aide To Governor Palin
Kristan Cole, Lifelong Friend Of Governor Palin

Maybe the Palin Truth Squad needs to begin with the above-listed member, Jo Ann Davidson. If you remember, kids, she’s the one who, at the Rethuglican National Convention, announced that they would make history by nominating:

a Republican woman governor, Sarah Pawlenty

  1. The GOP’s Natasha would never be that fashionably dressed. Otherwise, great photoshop of the Sarah Palin, Liar for Jesus, (Ministry of) Truth Squad.

  2. neon vincent,
    cindy lou cleaned out her closet and gave princess sarah her hand-me-downs. don’t worry, when she is on her own, i am sure she will accessorize the outfit and make it look dowdy and trashy.

  3. they just get better…… brilliant!

  4. dcAp!
    this goes so well with your new post! it’s true what they say about great minds, huh?

    Ha! What a great alternate name for Sister Sarah!

    I laughed at the whole cover and the title AND the little details like the lipstick and the pig and the “nowhere” sign… (hmmm… “Ands” were on sale today, as you can see.)

    I find this preoccupation with moose lately to be odd, to say the least. I guess I never realized just how dangerous those big lugs must be that it’s become such a badge of honor for non-Inuits (who certainly don’t need to bag them for food) to hunt them. I feel so much safer now!

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The abuse of power investigation against Sarah Palin, Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate, took a potentially ominous turn for her party on Friday when state lawmakers voted to subpoena her husband.

    Republican efforts to delay the probe until after the Nov. 4 election were thwarted when GOP State Sen. Charlie Huggins, who represents Palin’s hometown of Wasilla, sided with Democrats. “Let’s just get the facts on the table,” said Huggins, who appeared in camouflage pants to vote during a break from moose hunting.

    Maybe it’s all about the so-called Bush legacy. If the CU-Sister Sarah ticket wins, Bush automatically drops from the first to the THIRD stupidest person in history to occupy the White House.

    I am worried beyond belief…

    Representative government, in a nation with a highschool dropout rate nearing 50%. We are, “stuck on stupid”, nightowl.

  7. nightowl724

    fotc, I never thought of it that way. Now, I wish I hadn’t. 50% dropout rate. How did we get here?

    The following short article from Billy Kimball at the Huffington Post is well worth reading in its entirety, but here’s a peek:

    How Stupid Do They Think We Are? I Dunno. How Stupid Are We?

    According to an admittedly controversial study done by Drs. Richard Lynn of the University of Ulster and Tatu Vanhanen of the University of Tampere in Finland and published as “IQ and the Wealth of Nations,” in terms of estimated average IQ the United States ranks only 22nd among the 81 countries for which reliable data was available or could be extrapolated.

  8. Friend of the court

    Hey nonnie, I love the “Mooseolini”. Sounds like a menu entry in an Italian resturant in Alaska.

  9. nightowl724

    fotc, between that article and what you wrote, a light bulb turned on in my head.

    McCain graduated 894th in a class of 899 at the Naval Academy. Bush carried a low C average at Yale. They could have “fixed” or withheld this information, as they have certainly done with many, many other inconvenient facts.

    Instead, they embraced and advertised it!

    I used to think they did that because it would have been too difficult to cover up. Now, I can only conclude that they consider those stats to be assets, not liabilities!

    So, not just “stupid,” but “stupid and proud of it!

    Sigh…

  10. Friend of the court

    nightowl, I think that might be the case. I know, that my life would have been a lot easier if I was better at acting dumb and I’m not even that smart. It is like that jocker Dr Phil says, “do you want to be right or do you want to get along?” I guess the only folks worth getting along with, are folks who are wrong in big groups (read voters, in the last two presidential elections).

  11. nightowl724

    My sons’ lives would certainly have been better had they “played dumb.” I am white, yet I can’t help but notice how this issue is even stronger among minority groups – hence, the “uppity” comments!

  12. nightowl724

    BTW, nons and fotc… How about joining gotta and me at Netroots Nation 09? Pweeze…

  13. Friend of the court

    If it happens in Northern California or Southern Oregon, I shall be there. If I venture any farther, who will feed the dust bunnies and gold fish?

  14. nightowl724

    Around here, we have Critter Sitters… Ha-ha!

  15. to captain underpants, palin is his little princess sarah. to the fundies, she is sister sarah.
    the media has been working for years to dumb down the population. that works very well for corporations (who incidentally own the media), since that means that people will work for less money and will spend what little they make on the crap that the corporations sell. of course, the educational system has to be wrecked, too, and that entails getting the government involved, so the corporations line the pockets of the politicians. it all works very well for them, and they won’t let something as trite as elections get in the way of their grand plans.

  16. nightowl724

    The corporations want bots in blue Dickies or blue suits. Period.

  17. exactly, nightowl. they have all the power, and they don’t want to give it up.

  18. That’s amazing! Now I’ll have to start bugging you for lucky numbers.
