Sarah Palin Autism

Sarah Palin Autism

I just finished watching the presidential debates, and heard the word “autism” brought up not once, not twice, but at least three or four times.

Mr. McCain referred to “precious children” with autism, and suggested that Sarah Palin would be a strong supporter of parents of autistic children (presumably because she has a child with Down syndrome). Mr. Obama described plans to increase funding for autism research and implied support for increased funding for special education (though he made no particular mention of how or whether special education might be reformed or improved).

Palin Abuse of Power

Sarah Palin Abuse of Power

An Alaska ethics inquiry found on Friday that U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin Abused her Power as the state’s governor, casting a cloud over John McCain’s controversial choice of running mate for the November 4 election.

At the same time, McCain shifted his strategy. After a week in which his campaign tried in vain to seize the momentum from Democrat Barack Obama with fierce personal attacks, he adopted a conciliatory tone, calling on supporters to respect the Illinois senator.

The Alaska inquiry centered on whether Palin’s dismissal of the state’s public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, was linked to her personal feud with a state trooper who was involved in a contentious divorce with the governor’s sister.

A report prepared for the state Legislative Council said Monegan’s refusal to fire the trooper was not the sole reason he was dismissed but was likely a contributing factor. The McCain-Palin campaign had said the commissioner was fired because of poor performance.

Palin Report Due Out Today

Sen. John McCain unleashed his harshest attack ad yet today, charging that Sen. Barack Obama “lied” about his relationship to 1960s anti-war terrorist Bill Ayers.

Despite the GOP’s televised attack, it was the Republican team of McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin who braced for bad news today.

Sarah Palin Defends Terrorist Comment

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin defended her claim that Barack Obama “pals around with terrorists,” saying the Democratic presidential nominee’s association with a 1960s radical is an issue that is “fair to talk about.”

Obama has denounced the radical views and actions of Bill Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground group during the Vietnam era. On Sunday, Obama dismissed the criticism from the McCain campaign, leveled by Palin, as “smears” meant to distract voters from real problems such as the troubled economy.

Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, launched the attack Saturday and repeated it twice Sunday, signaling a new strategy by John McCain’s presidential campaign to go after Obama‘s character.

“The comments are about an association that has been known but hasn’t been talked about,” Palin said as she boarded her plane in Long Beach, Calif. “I think it’s fair to talk about where Barack Obama kicked off his political career, in the guy’s living room.”

Later, at an Omaha rally, Palin elaborated on her attack, claiming one of Obama‘s advisers had described Obama and Ayers as “friendly.”

“In fact, Obama held one of his first meetings hoping to kick off his political career in Bill Ayers’ living room,” she told the crowd, which had just raised $2.5 million for the Republican party’s McCain-Palin Victory 2008 fund.

At issue is Obama‘s association with Ayers. Both have served on the same Chicago charity and live near each other in Chicago. Ayers also held a meet-the-candidate event at his home for Obama when Obama first ran for office in the mid-1990s, the event cited by Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin Immortalized In Pron Video

Sarah Palin

Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin can’t get any hotter than she is right now.

According to TMZ.com, Sarah Palin is officially a legend —

Hustler is shooting a pron video with a look-alike, titled “Nailin’ Paylin.” The spelling is sic and so is Hustler.

The faux Sarah is Lisa Ann, who “will be nailing the Russians who come knocking on her back-door.” In another scene — a flashback — “young Paylin’s creationist college professor will explain a ‘big bang’ theory even she can’t deny!”

There’s also a threeway with Hillary and Condoleezza look-alikes.

The video is in pre-production, but is being fast tracked for release before the election.

What do you think? Can a vice president run the country and still be a pron star?

Here’s a breakdown of Sarah Palin‘s thought processes. (DailyKos Image)

If you had trouble following the Vice Presidential debate last night – don’t worry, adennak at DailyKos has got you covered.

It’s not off-base to say that Sarah Palin did better than expected last night – but at the same time, we really need to analyze the way she dodged questions she didn’t know the answers to and why her answers sounded like canned responses peppered with key phrases such as maverick, partisan, six-pack Joe, hockey mom and energy. You must admit, it did get confusing slash frustrating when you were thinking what question is she answering?

Sen. Joe Biden gave a knowledgeable but restrained performance in Thursday night’s Debate, while Gov. Sarah Palin sought to show that her accomplishments as governor and mayor prove she is qualified to be vice president.

Biden slammed John McCain, saying that “he has been no maverick on the issues that matter to people lives,” but his only challenge to Palin was asking her to articulate a policy on the Iraq war.

Palin pushed her “track record of reform” and said she and McCain are a ” team of mavericks.”

“We’re known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done,” she said.

Sarah Palin tried to paint Barack Obama as “dangerous” for being open to meeting with rogue leaders without preconditions.

“An issue like that taken up by a presidential candidate goes beyond naivete and goes beyond poor judgment,” Palin said.

OCT 1: A Boston Globe editorial argues that Sarah Palin should be asked about banning rape kits in Thursday night’s debate.

Numerous papers look at Palin’s record as a debater. The Wall Street Journal calls her a “formidable foe.” A challenger in the 2006 Alaska gubernatorial election writes a firsthand account for the Christian Science Monitor, saying Palin is “a master of … the fine art of the nonanswer, the glittering generality.”

Status: Fake

Come to find out, pictures of bikini-clad girls posing with rifles and handguns are quite a popular fetish online (who knew?). I had to sift through dozens of redundant (to my taste) images on Google before finding the original used in this Photoshop job, but it did finally turn up in the photostream of a Flickr user named Doctor Casino. The picture, of a model named Elizabeth, was taken in Georgia in 2006.
