Sorry, but you’re on your own

Tonight, I chose the Fritz Lang film noir Scarlet Street over blogging. So, you’re on your own.

If you’re dying for something to chat about, though, and have no interest in film noir, check out this scathing Vanity Fair piece on Sarah Palin. Here’s the overview:

Even as Sarah Palin’s public voice grows louder, she has become increasingly secretive, walling herself off from old friends and associates, and attempting to enforce silence from those around her. Following the former Alaska governor’s road show, the author delves into the surreal new world Palin now inhabits—a place of fear, anger, and illusion, which has swallowed up the engaging, small-town hockey mom and her family—and the sadness she has left in her wake.

    Here’s a link via HuffPo about how Dems aren’t going to let Bush’s tax cuts expire http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/09/01/99992/democrats-unlikely-to-repeal-tax.html

    What is wrong with these people! Or what is wrong with the electorate that they want to give their boss and the trust fund millionaires more of a tax break?

    Applejack, you say that as if you think they have a choice.

    Get ready folks, I have a feeling we’re about to see Act II. Intermission is just about over.

    If Palin gets elected President, I’m out of here. Having sat through Act I, I have no intention for sticking around to see how the American experiment ends.

    Palin will win Iowa, and get destroyed in the New Hampshire primary, where people still have the capacity for rational thought. Hopefully that loss will derail her. I’m not so certain, though.

    Mother Fuckers! If the Democrats don’t let those tax breaks for the wealthy expire, I’m done. I give up.

    We have to, for the future of humanity, force Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin to mate. It’s our only hope. I am convinced of that.

    I like it in the article, after it’s established that Todd and Sarah never sleep in the same bed together, he mentions to an anonymous house guest that he doesn’t know she keeps getting pregnant.

    The real story is how much of a pass she has been given by the media. Even the supposed “liberal” media like MSNBC has largely placed her in a position of respect and credibility, even when criticizing something about her. There seems to be a long list of bombshell stories ranging from alleged affairs to their sons criminal record and brief military service. Nearly all of these stories have largely been ignored. At this point she really should be fair game for criticism and some honest reporting. The Vanity Fair piece, even if it’s half true, paints a really ugly, scary portrait. Reports today suggest the author actually buried much of the worst material he dug up during his research.

    Any chance puppet Mark Maynard would be interested in moderating a debate for the open State House and State Senate seats?

    I have yet to receive an invitation to a debate/forum for the 54th State House race now that the primary election has come and gone.
