Is Sarah Palin George Bush in Drag?

October 4, 2008 at 7:00 am 7 comments

I don’t mean to offend drag queens when I ask that question, but look at this video from Progress Accountability and see for yourself.

So many of the catch phrases, talking points and stale ideas spouted by Palin in her debate with Joe Biden sound as they were coming from Bush’s lips. Or, more accurately, the poisonous pens of the same Rovian spin doctors who fooled the American public into voting for Bush. Except now their cynicism and political manipulation is gussied up in a shiny coat of bright red lipstick and a beauty queen’s sash.

Compare statements by the Bush and Palin on partisan politics:

PALIN:

Palin Said She’s Known For Putting Partisan Politics Aside. During the 2008 vice presidential debate, Governor Palin said, We’re known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done.” [Vice Presidential Debate, 10/2/08]

BUSH:

Bush Said Partisanship Needs To Be Put Aside. During the third presidential debate in 2000, Governor Bush said, In order to get something done on behalf of the people, you have to put partisanship aside, and that’s what we did in my state. [Commission on Presidential Debates, 10/17/00]

No one who survived the Bush reign of error should believe Palin’s hollow and cynical remarks about “putting partisan politics aside” particularly when nearly 100% of McCain’s ad spending is devoted to attacking Obama.

Sarah Palin may be almost completely unqualified to be Vice-President, but she has proven herself to be adept at one thing: the willingness to manipulate, spin and lie to satiate her hunger for political power. George Bush was equally skilled. And, as progressives, we stood by laughing at his inability to string together a coherent thought that amounted to more than “USA! USA! USA!” while Rove charted his dark path to the White House.

We can’t make that mistake again.

John McCain is a 72 year old man with a history of melanoma and a stubborn unwillingness to share his medical records with the public. If McCain is elected president, he would be the old president in our history’s to be beginning his first term. If he were to die in office, or for reason be unable to complete his full term, Sarah Palin would become president.

Is Sarah Palin, aka George Bush in drag and with less experience, the person you would want running the country?

    (Yawn)…check out this link and you’ll get actual Democrats talking about Barry H. Obama…p.s., one of ’em is Joe Biden.

    Watch the video and you will see that you can say what you want about George Bush and the Republican party, but at the end of the day, the Liberal Democrats are a joke.

    Mr. Slinkard,

    If you you are so bored, why do you keep coming around? Is it because you are a little gay for the commentary I post?

    In any event, I love being followed around by boys.

    Michael, Slinkard is simply blog-whoring for his ill-written and laughable Limbaugh-loving, Republican talking-point spouting blog. Just ignore him. (And take a look at his picture! You don’t want to have that boy following you around! Eeeewwww.)

    Webster,

    I said that I love being followed around by boys. I did not say that Slinkard was going to get anywhere with me.

    Considering his love of Rush, maybe it is Limbaugh who Slinkard is a little gay for.

    Wow, now that’s funny…you guys crack me up.

    Like I said, I come here to see what the Liberal whacko mentality for the day is, that and to get a good laugh.

    Thanks!

    Michael, send him over to Americablog to post. It would be fun to watch him get torn to shreds over his comments there. Or, wait a minute…I think we may have discovered the identity of Busboy!

    Yeah, just checked out Americablog and it’s even more of a joke than this site. It loses all credibility when it’s viewers and writers deny Obama’s relations with William Ayers.

    What’s next? Will they try and declare Tony Rezko as a person Obama has not been associated with?
