…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

The three…FOUR biggest lies ever told

Posted by Bill Nance on September 2, 2008

#1 You can’t get pregnant your first time

#2 The check is in the mail

#3 I’m from the government and I’m here to help

And the latest addition:

“The vetting process was completely thorough and I’m grateful for the results.” -John McCain

  1. I’m fascinated by this claim that Palin must not have been “vetted” because her daughter is pregnant. The corollary of course is that if she had been “vetted” (as, supposedly, y’all have figured out she wasn’t), John McCain would have refrained from asking her to be his running mate because her daughter is pregnant.

    Shorter version of this statement: If a politician has a daughter who got pregnant, that’s a sufficient basis to disqualify her from being the Vice President.

    Is this, indeed, what “liberals” believe?

    Fascinating.

    Um, I don’t think I mentioned that. Hardly important really.
    I guess the fact that she’s under investigation, her husband was a member of the Alaska Independence Party for 7 years, and she has spoken at their conventions on at least one occasion and is alleged to have attended the convention more than once might have more to do with it.
    FYI here are the words of the founder of that party:

    “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government,” Vogler said in the interview, in which he talked extensively about his desire for Alaskan secession, the key goal of the AIP.

    “And I won’t be buried under their damn flag,” Vogler continued in the interview, which also touched on his disappointment with the American judicial system. “I’ll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home.”

    And yes THAT’s what I mean by vetted. What do you think Republicans would be saying if Michele Obama had been a member of such a party as recently as 2002 and Barack had spoken to their conventions? Hmmm?

  3. “under investigation” – would have disqualified Governor Clinton of Arkansas.

    husband member of a different political party – relevance?

    # of times spoken at conventions – I care why?

    Again: saying that these things prove she “wasn’t vetted” just reveals that you think they are disqualifying offenses. Apparently, McCain didn’t.

    Oh, my, the intellectual vacancy displayed in this last comment is just too much to pass up, so I’ll make a final response:

    You said: “husband member of a different political party – relevance?”

    Let me repeat again, the stance of the political party in question:
    “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.” This party openly advocates secession from the United States.

    If you don’t see that as a problem, nor fail to grasp that membership in such a party would be a political deal-breaker for a properly vetted VP, you’re too stupid to pound sand.

  5. If you don’t see that as a problem, nor fail to grasp that membership in such a party would be a political deal-breaker for a properly vetted VP,

    If Governor Palin having a husband who was a member of a party with this stance disqualifies her from VP, how much more true it must be, I suppose, that Barack Obama (running for President not VP) for having belonged (not merely having a spouse who belonged) to a church whose pastor said “God damn America”, that the U.S. is to blame for 9/11, and that the U.S. government created HIV for the purpose of genocide against blacks.

    Let’s disqualify ’em both, Governor Palin and Senator Obama. After all, that’s what “vetting” is all about.

    Deal?
