For the love of God, Sarah Palin...

...please, shut the hell up.

Seriously, you've already made the rest of your fellow Alaskans look like rednecked, inbred, backward-assed, xenophobic neocon morons (yes, some of that is redundant, I know). You're embarrassing us. Please, stop making it worse.

"I still am concerned about that association with Bill Ayers," Palin said. "And if anybody still wants to talk about it, I will, because this is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had campaigned to blow up, to destroy our Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol."

Here's the thing, Sarah, nobody wants to talk about it - because it's not an issue. Not now. Not ever. It's been addressed, in detail. President Elect Obama has explained his relationship with Ayers, in detail. That relationship has been corroborated, again in detail. Apparently you, Sarah Palin, are the only one not aware of it.

And you're not fooling anybody with this garbage. I'm willing to bet decent money that you'd never even heard of William Ayers before the campaign. Ever. I'd be willing to bet that you don't have a damned clue as to the dates, details, members, events, political issues, and legal actions surrounding the radical violence of the Weather Underground and Ayers' relationship to it or why Ayers is a free man today.

I"m no fan of William Ayers, and frankly I think it's a damned shame he didn't blow himself up with the rest of his friends (look it up, because you know you have no idea what I'm talking about here). But if you truely believe that William Ayers is a terrorist, I'd be less concerned about his tenuous relationship with the President Elect, and a hell of a lot more concerned with his direct and detailed impact on the students at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and on education system reform.

I'd also advise you, Governor, that going down the relationship road is a damned slippery slope. Especially for Republicans. Especially for Republicans in Alaska.

Seriously here, Sarah, you lost. Overwelmingly.

Try to be a little classier about it, will you please?

  1. Well said, Jim. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to pound knowledge in the the head of a rock. And yes, if William Ayers is such a current threat, take it up with the U of I, Chicago.

  2. Nothing to add here, but I did want to mention that your new banner is just awesomely HUGE...and a pretty awesome shot, too.

  3. Yeah, Sarah Palin is just plain getting on my nerves. However, I do think it's a great idea that she's considering running for the White House in 2012. A great idea - for many reasons. Many.

    And the banner, yes, it's huge, Nathan. Things, they're bigger in Alaska.

  4. Well, because it would significantly raise the probability that we'll have eight years of President Obama, for one...

    Yeah, but nothing is ever certain. The risk is that she'd win, and then we'd have President Youbetcha for an indefinite period of time.

    I'll bet you just read those last six words and thought something like, "No, it would only be four years," didn't you? "And no more than eight," you might have added, you optimist you.

    But you're forgetting something.

    President Palin would have the football. Yes, I'm talking about that football.

    There's a thought to keep you up at night, no?

  6. Well, she's done so well defending us against Russia, which she's assured us she can see and she's such an expert on that, surely she could handle THAT football...

    I'm just sayin'... ;-)

    ohh...chills up and down my spine on that one!

  7. You know, I can't help myself, but I think of her as Nehemiah Scudder in heels, as someone characterized her (on Whatever, maybe?).

  8. You know, "Sarah Palin", "shut up", and that deep, dark Hatcher Pass lake are giving me ideas.

    Bad blogger.

  9. The election is over. Over. And Sarah Palin seems to be the only one who doesn't know this.

    She's still yapping about things that have been resolved, and she's busy planning her campaign for 2012.

    She needs to shut the fuck up, and get back to work. She was a reasonably decent Governor before her selection as McCain's running mate, she needs to get back to that job and stop thinking about the next one. We've got issues here, major ones that need attention and if she's not going to buckle down and catch up on two months worth of work and do the job she was actually elected to, then she needs to move the hell on.


    She can start with why the fuck we're paying three times the rest of the nation for gas. That would be an excellent place to start.

    Oh, that's because we're being gouged.
