Chupacabra Report

News that gets my goat..

-If you read the op-ed pages you’ll recall that Kathleen Parker, songbird to The Eagle Forum, recently called for Sarah Palin to step down as McCain’s running mate. This week she detailed the thousands of “angry, vicious and threatening” responses she’s received from the rabid partisans that until now have been her bread and butter.

How do you like your right-wing nuts now, Mrs. Parker?

“Readers have every right to reject my opinion. But when we decide that a person is a traitor and should die for having an opinion different from one's own, we cross into territory that puts all freedoms at risk. (I hear you, Dixie Chicks.)”

-I’d been waiting for Rachael Maddow to get her own show, but of course now that she does, it runs opposite Jon Stewart and Jeopardy. Nuts. Anyways, I saw her the other night and she went to town on Sarah Palin’s debate performance. She found that:

The Reagan quote Palin used came from 1961 when he was shilling for the AMA against the original Medicare bill before Congress.

The line about how “we grow good people in our small towns” came from Westbrook Pegler, a pro-nazi writer from the 30’s so extreme he was bounced from the John Birch Society.

Palin wrongly claimed that we have fewer troops in Iraq now than before the surge.

And she confused General David McKiernan, the US commander in Afghanistan, with John McClellan, the Union General whose ineptitude prolonged the Civil War.

Caribou Barbie aside, the fact that 70 million people tuned in to this event makes me think that we may be in for something special November fourth.

-And finally, Pat Robertson has predicted that Israel will strike Iranian nuclear facilities between Election Day and Inauguration Day, triggering Russian nuclear strikes against US coastal cities. He has issued an urgent call to prayer that God might prevent this, as He has prevented all the other wars, terror attacks, hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes that Crazy Pat has predicted.

Oh, Charly, facts are so beside the point when it comes to Miss Sarah. Does a pom-pom girl need facts? Not at all. She chants, Alaska-Alaska, you're-the-best, whether Alaska is dominating the game or 40 points behind.

That's the beauty of the Pep Squad. No basis in reality whatever.

That and short skirts.
