We interrupt the public stoning of Sarah Palin to bring you this:

American Beauty star Bening tells Fox News: “We really want to hear her views … She’s obviously a very accomplished woman. I’m a Democrat, I’m a supporter of Barack Obama but she certainly deserves our respect.”

You may now pick up your rocks, lefties and throw. (BTW, could they have gotten a wackier picture of Palin?)

And here’s a blast from the past to put this all in perspective. Every presidential election cycle I turn my attention to something else because I can’t stand the suspense and the MSM’s droning on and on about how my candidate has lost the election. This year I can’t do that because of the blog, so I have to weather the storm. McCain very well may lose this thing (it’s really looking like it) but then again this election cycle has stumped the pundits throughout. Who would have thought Obama come from nowhere and unseat Hillary as the anointed candidate? Who would have thought McCain would be able to resurrect his campaign and gain the nomination? Who would have predicted he’d select a conservative and women and energize his base and some of the Hillary supporters? So, I’m not ready to write McCain off yet, despite the polls (though, I’m preparing myself for an Obama presidency).

But Gore did win the election in 2000.
In addition, we are now two weeks closer to the election than when Saletan wrote his piece. No poll shows McCain ahead or in a dead heat. Every poll shows McCain actually doing worse than in the week before. Obama is above 50 percent in a number of polls, nothing Gore or Kerry (or Clinton, for that matter) was ever able to accomplish.

I’m not “stoning” Sarah Palin. Like millions of other voters, I question her qualifications to be V-P and very possibly President of the United States. I question her record of secrecy, cronyism, vindictiveness and very possibly abuse of power. I question her willingness to lie repeatedly even after her lies have been exposed. But most of all, I question whether she has the wisdom or the temperament to have the lives of the entire nation and possibly the world in her hands.
I’m sure you would like to stone Brian Williams, but I think he put his finger on what worries people most about Sarah Palin.
“LETTERMAN: Now how should a person feel, and politically I’m independent, and I can… I have the paperwork to verify this… But how should a person feel about John McCain in having made this choice? To me it seems like we’re in such a mess now here at home and around the world that do we really want a beginner in the passenger’s seat?
WILLIAMS: That’s part of the judgment voters get to make. There are two ways of looking at this: Uh, it is refreshing to millions of Americans not to watch a debate like the one we had last night and not to see two older white males on the stage. This is new. This is different and it’s late in 2008.
LETTERMAN: That’s right. It has gotten everybody’s interest focused on the campaign again.
WILLIAMS: The other way of looking at is it’s September 11, 2001. The president is airborne. The Secret Service won’t yet let him land ’cause we know that little about what has just happened to us. The vice president has taken hold of the machinery of government inside the White House. He is in the secure tank. That’s also the job description we’re talking about here, and that’s part of this choice we get to make in 32 days.”

What I love about watching old news coverage is how wrong the pundits generally are. Why we listen to the media/take them seriously is beyond me. When it comes to predicting the future, they are not any more insightful than the rest of us. Remember how after Nixon the Republican party was dead and never going to win another election (oops!). Remember how Reagan was going to start world war three? (Oops, wrong again). And Bill Clinton bombed Al-Qaeda sites just to distract from the Lewinsky scandal (oops– maybe he was right and we should have been paying more attention to them!) The MSM attacks whoever is in office, regardless of party.

I think if Sarah Palin appeared stoned she might be a better candidate, or at least she would have an excuse for being as dumb as she is.
This election is a nightmare. On the surface, Obama should have it in the bag, but we really don’t know how honest the polling is, at either end. He could be thrity points behind for all we know! McCain seems to be on the verge of having his colostomy bag explode and Biden is off getting fitted for his court jester costume.
Meanwhile, the economy is going to hell, the markets are tanking, and there is probably a new war waiting in the wings to start somewhere.

Check the polls, Independents are swing three to one toward Obama now.
And as a Evangelical Christian, Palin should know that it is in God’s will to tell the truth and its a sin to spread false rumours.

And you sound more insufferably smug. About what, I can’t imagine, since your ticket is going down in flames and incinerating along with it the last shred of honor John McCain might once have possessed.
And why would any Democrat be frantic if, as Michele and her right-wing cohort have charged so often, we have been thoroughly brainwashed into believing that Obama is the Messiah? In that case we all ought to be wearing vacuous expressions worthy of the most dimwitted Palin supporters, smiling beatifically, supremely secure in the knowledge that not even the most underhanded and despicable criminal acts of the Republican syndicate can possibly succeed in stealing THIS election.
But since I haven’t been brainwashed and I actually care about the outcome November 4 because I know what’s at stake, I’m not afforded the luxury of sitting on the sidelines smirking at my fellow Americans.
Don’t you feel even a little ashamed? You ought to.

Wasn’t a lie. Read my post.
As for your party, I believe anyone who does not stand up RIGHT NOW and denounce what McCain and Palin are doing jeopardizes their soul. Silence implies consent. This is EVIL, pure and simple.
“So we have McCain today getting his crowd riled up asking who Barack Obama is and then apparently giving a wink and a nod when one member of the crowd screams out `terrorist.’
“And later we have Sarah Palin with the same mob racket, getting members of the crowd to yell out `kill him,’ though it’s not clear whether the call for murder was for Bill Ayers or Barack Obama. It didn’t seem to matter.

That’s what some of us say about partial-birth abortion and opposing a bill that would supply medical care to born-alive infants.
It is not my job to attempt to scare people into voting in what I think is the wisest way by making them fear for their souls.
Shall we talk about conscience?
What do I think of the conscience of a person who would support (without danger to a mother’s life or health) the “right” of a woman to have a procedure that delivers a child except for his/her head, then insert a pair of scissors into his/her brain and suck them out with a vacuum…what I think of a person who supports that “right”? If they already HAVE examined their conscience, that is a scary thought.
What do I think of a person who would vote against a bill even leaving committee that would assure medical care for a baby born alive after an “induced birth abortion” – voting against even allowing the bill to be voted on?

They are true. I saw the video clips tonight on the news. Even McCain had the the vestigial grace to wince for a split-second when the man in his crowd responded to McCain’s question “Who is the REAL Barack Obama?” by shouting “a terrorist!” and drawing cheers. But McCain lost his chance to preserve that tiny bit of goodness in his soul. He said nothing. He stood there and said NOTHING. He has sold his soul, and anyone who supports this ticket and fails to speak out against these tactics is complicit.
At one of the Palin’s speeches today in Florida, she was introduced by a man from the Lee Country sheriff’s office, Mike Scott, in uniform, who shouted about “Barack HUSSEIN Obama!” and spoke of how the McCain-Palin ticket would defeat him. At another speech, according to Washington post reporter Dana Milbank, this happened:
“It was time to revive the allegation, made over the weekend, that Obama `pals around’ with terrorists, in this case Bill Ayers, late of the Weather Underground. Many independent observers say Palin’s allegations are a stretch; Obama served on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers, now an education professor, and has condemned his past activities.
“`Now it turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers,’ Palin said.
“`Boooo!’ said the crowd.
“`And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, “launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,”‘ she continued.
“`Boooo!’ the crowd repeated.
“`Kill him!’ proposed one man in the audience.”
There is a strategy here. Republicans can’t win on the issues so they have to attack Obama personally, have to raise sinister questions about him (despite the fact that every detail of his personal and political history has been scrutinized for four years now) and create a shadowy “mystery” around him that will make people afraid. Who is the REAL Barack Obama? His middle name is Hussein! He pals around with terrorists! He’s really a Muslim! He’s dark-skinned and has a foreign-sounding last name! He’s not a real American! Now they want to search his donor lists to see if they can find any Arab names on it.
They stop short of actually CALLING him a terrorist because it’s far more effective to throw all these elements out there and let the voters draw the “obvious” conclusion. Let the guy in the crowd shout “he’s a terrorist!’ Let he guy in the crowd shout “Kill him!” While you wash your hands and act as if you had nothing to do with it.
This is depraved, corrupt, putrescent. It stinks of moral rot. It reeks of spiritual gangrene. It goes so far beyond the pale that anyone whose sense of right and wrong has not been totally vaporized should be shocked and appalled. FOR GOD’S SAKE, FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY AND OUR COMMON FUTURE, IF YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN OR AN INDEPENDENT TELL THEM TO STOP OR YOU WILL DENY THEM YOUR VOTE. If this strategy should work–though I doubt that it will and pray that it won’t–it would mean the death of everything good about America. It will make no difference at all who runs next time, or ever. We will have lost everything that matters most.

dear god. i watched the video of mccain’s riot inciting. he clearly heard the guy yell “terrorist!” answering mccain when he asked “who is the real barack obama?” he heard it, so did cindy, and so did the audience behind them both. the laughs, the approving sneers… sickening and frightening. we’ve seen this sort of thing play out before.
i’ve been reading that simmering hatred building in the blogosphere, including here (trying to paint obama as a terrorist by linking him with ayers, and with hamas, and by yelling his middle name, hussein) but never have i seen mccain and palin incite this sort of reaction and then condone and approve of it from their live audiences.
tonight i pray for our country and for obama and his family. and i pray that mccain and palin will change their strategy to focus on the problems that we have and away from their dangerous path.

Liberals and Democrats have been called unpatriotic and bad Americans by those in the Bush Administration. This went on for years until “our leader’s” popularity tanked.
We have been vilified. We’ve been told we don’t belong in this country if we disliked Bush.
All the commentators on Fox pushed this for years. Hannity and Limbaugh and O’Reilly laughed about it.
And when it seems they’re going to finally lose power, what, they try to incite an assassination? Because they’re the CHRISTIAN Party!
You made your bed. I hope we can make it as uncomfortable as possible for the next term or (two or three). There are two Americas and now the Blue States can run things. And if the Reds don’t like it, well, they’re just unpatriotic and bad Americans. They can just leave.

“You know what…I watched the rallies outside of the Democratic National Convention. Hatred is all over in this election and some of us (me) are concerned.”
there’s a difference. outside of the dnc versus right in front of palin and right in front of mccain – clearly heard and not put down, but instead the flames were fanned with smiles and laughs of acceptance by your candidates.
“I look at the language used about Republicans in general by liberals here on this blog. And I asked my boyfriend the other day…good grief. If this is the way they treat conservatives now…what will it be like when they are in power?”
has any liberal here on this blog threatened the life of a republican? have any said “kill him” or “kill her” or incited violence? good god, woman, to disagree (even strongly as we do) is nowhere near the level of fear and hatred that your candidates are instilling in their right-wing nuttery crowds.
your cries of religious persecution are unfounded and unsubstantiated. proof? evidence? why is it that religious righties have to pretend to be the victims? as a christian, i don’t believe any claim that democrats or liberals will persecute religious institutions and neither do any of my democratic christian, jew, muslim, atheist, agnostic, hindu, etc. friends. just more fear mongering on your part.

and yelladawgNC said that to all of us. and i agree that if we let palin/mccain and the hate mongers of the world control our lives with lies and deceipt then we should fear for our souls.
“There are Republicans out there who really believe that Obama’s connection to this former terrorist (can you produce a quote from his saying that bombing the house of a judge with the judge’s child inside was a wrong thing to do?), his close connection to a racist pastor, his connection to a slum-lord…”
they believe that his connections… what? you lost your train of thought.
you can keep calling ayers a terrorist, i’ll continue to call him a radical anti-war protester. how many innocent iraqis did bush kill? how many people did ayers kill? how many bombs did bush drop? and ayers? how many people did bush’s war terrorize? and ayers?
so, these connections… what do republicans think of palin’s/mccain’s connections to keating? and to antisemitic pastor hagee, kroon and brickner? and to singlaub and the right-wing radical group, council for world freedom that operated outside of u.s. law with it’s iran-contra dealings?
“I understand that you do not have any issue with stifling the free speech of Republicans. Many here have told Michele to ‘stop’, ‘be quiet’, etc.”
that’s an utter lie and you understand nothing. this is an ad hominem attack on me that’s baseless. where have i supported any such “stifling”? i’ve told you to go protest at obama speeches. wear an anti-obama t-shirt, put bumper stickers on your cars. go for it.
i believe that michele is welcome to voice her opinion. however i think that she is disingenuous by professing that her republican pandering is in anyway supported by her faith (as this blog is housed under the beliefnet roof). i think that she is no better than the liar mccain and the liar palin when she simply regurgitates known falsehoods here and doesn’t bother to defend them. that doesn’t mean that i think she or you should be silenced.
“It is not merely that you think we are wrong. You think we should be silenced. and THAT is not what this country should be about. That DOES appear to be what this election is about.”
i disagree with conservatives on a lot of things, that’s true. and i happen to agree with some of the foundations of conservatism. but i’ve NEVER thought that you should be silenced. on the other hand, there are some (like guy) who i wish would just go away because they have nothing to offer.

you’re the one who brought up the actions of liberals on this blog, in comparison to what i stated about the inciting of physical violence by your republican candidates. i never said that a conservative on this blog threatened the live of a democrat. but okay though, i’ll play along. find me a quote, or video feed of a democrat that threatened the life of a conservative outside of the dnc. and when you do, i’m more than happy to denounce them.
are you not appalled by your candidates for inciting this kind of lynch mob? no of course not because you believe there are republicans out there (you included) that think this is a legitimate issue and that obama really is a terrorist and a radical muslim.
for the rape kit issue, which part of what i said is a lie? come on now… all i put out there were known facts, already in the public domain. i can dig around for links and references to prove that it’s not my “feelings” on the issue. i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: i cannot argue with your “feelings” for as much as i can disagree with them. i can’t say your “feelings” are right or wrong but we can discuss our differences. if you “feel” that obama is a terrorist, all i can say is that the facts don’t support that. i try to stick to the facts, as much as possible (i even prompted yelladawgNC to correct the comment on palin’s book banning list, and offered commendation when it was corrected… but you whined even then).

Since I didn’t quote you, I have no obligation to specify where I said that YOU were engaged in falsehood.
However, I posted source material (a link to the Alaskan agency that has been responsible for reimbursing crime victims in response to Yelladawg’s “and crime victimes can’t get reimbursed!” [and] a link to the minutes of the Alaskan state legislature where the deputy director testified before the legislature that he found no (ZERO) cases where a victim was billed for a rape kit. Insurance companies, yes. Victims, no.
If you cannot read the source material and discern what is correct about the lies and what is not, my once more connecting the dots again is not likely to have any effect.

you said, “I can share my feelings (which are just as valid as the lie you continue to spout about the rape kit myth)”

“he found no (ZERO) cases where a victim was billed for a rape kit. Insurance companies, yes. Victims, no.”
that does not dispute that the township of wasilla, under the mayorship of palin, had such a policy. that’s indisputable fact. that nobody can find an instance of a victim being billed is irrelevant. that is my point, so there is no need for you to try to connect any dots.
“If you cannot read the source material and discern what is correct…”
you’re hardly qualified to patronize anyone on this blog, ellen. while you’ve proven yourself wily at avoiding the questions, i’m going to hold your feet to the fire:

what? the article was printed september 11, 2001. what’s your point? now you’re trying to tie ayers to september 11? you do realize that for this to have hit the press on that day, the interview would have been potentially days earlier. again, what’s your point, here? plus i’ve provided quotes by ayers saying that this exact article took his statements out of context.
“I should have said ‘you all’…but ask…if Michelle stopped writing tomorrow, you would feel…what?”
then, “you all” would still be inaccurate, wouldn’t it? because “you all” would include me as well as others who do not support the censorship that you’re talking about. and if michele stopped writing tomorrow, i would feel… indifferent. what do you expect me to feel if she decides to stop writing?
“No, what is on record is that Wasilla billed the insurance companies. The law that was passed extended to prohibiting billing insurance companies.”
no, at issue here is that you accused me of lying. what did i say about the wasilla rape kit policy that was a lie? you didn’t answer me.
what’s on record is the wasilla policy that sought reimbursement for rape kits from the victims’ insurance companies or from the victims.
“There is ZERO evidence that Wasilla billed a victim directly.”
“directly?” now we have to parse words? what if it was indirectly, does that make it any more proper?
again, that doesn’t make the fact that the policy allowed for it magically disappear. do you fish? here’s a fishing analogy: i have a fishing pole and take it fishing. the idea of taking a fishing pole fishing is to catch fish. on this particular day i caught ZERO fish. i still had the fishing pole and the role of the fishing pole never changed. i suppose if i took that fishing pole fishing often enough, i might someday catch a fish.
“I KNOW that McCain was investigated and found not guilty of wrong-doing.”
and i KNOW that obama has never been found guilty of any wrong doing with respect to bill ayers or rev. wright or (who else were you trying to tar and feather obama with?).
“As for the rest, I’d like to look at source material.”
then i’ll wait for you to read up on those other palin/mccain connections before you comment on them. clearly because these sorts of associations are so unbelievably important to you, i know that you will go seek them out without my help.
