The Politics of Fear and Loathing

From Freep:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson is urging prayer before Election Day to stave off an imminent Mideast war he said could bring nuclear attacks on the United States.

In a letter on his Web site, http://www.patrobertson.com, Robertson said his opinion was that Israel would bomb Iranian nuclear sites between Nov. 4 and the inauguration of the United States’ new president.

Robertson tied his warning to biblical prophecy.

She’s not much of a ‘Lerner’ but she is pretty ‘Loewe”

Hey kids! Remember My Fair Lady? It’s a musical about Sarah Palin, a moronic governor of one of the least populated states Eliza, a poor flower girl. She’s uneducated and unsophisticated. Hell, she can barely form a proper sentence! Well, Captain Underpants Henry Higgins gives her a crash course in speech and manners in hopes of passing her off as vice president material a lady.

To the tune of I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face, music by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, performed by Nat King Cole:

I want to punch her in the face,
Each time I see her stupid grin,
I’m tired of that same old tune,
She babbles night and noon,
putinVladimir, so near,
She has no fear.

Princess Sarah Goes to Duh-bate Camp!

(CNN)– Gov. Sarah Palin will now spend two and a half days near Sedona, Arizona, to prepare for Thursday’s debate, instead of prepping in St Louis, as originally planned.

Sarah Palin will be at John McCain’s rustic creek side home outside Sedona for what a top aide calls “debate camp.”

Conservative Estimates

George Will (Washington Post):

Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama.

…snip…

It is arguable that, because of his inexperience, Obama is not ready for the presidency. It is arguable that McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. Unreadiness can be corrected, although perhaps at great cost, by experience. Can a dismaying temperament be fixed?
