Somebody please rent Sarah Palin a clue!!!
/rant on
Christopher Ruddy's Newsmax.com has a headline that says, "Sarah Palin Says U. S. Headed Toward Socialism." What utter rot.

Ever since the 1880s, any time a politician wants to tag-damn something, it's "socialism" or "communism" or "red."

Give it a rest, Sarah. It is threadbare. We're seeing through it. The Republican party has no clothes. If that's the best you can do, I'm glad I voted for Obama, even though I'm not really happy with what he's done.

Since when has the US not been a socialist country? Since Roosevelt?

When it is okay by you, it is capitalism...like bailing out the banks. When it isn't okay by you, it is socialism. Huh? Run that one by me again.

Dear Sarah, please go back to Alaska and stop embarrassing the Republican party.

Interestingly, another member of my friend's list had a few words to say about that convention's other headliner, Newt Gingrich:

GINGRICH: I am not a citizen of the world. I am a citizen of the United States because only in the United States does citizenship start with our creator. [...] I think this is one of the most critical moments in American history. We are living in a period where we are surrounded by paganism.

Surrounded by pagans, eh? We should get so lucky. It's becoming patently obvious that the Republican Party has become naught but an oversized PAC for the Baptists, AoG and other assorted theocrats. It's obvious they don't want my vote, or my support, so by the gods, I'll make sure they get neither.

For full comprehension, it should be noted the comment comes from a Pagan farmer who, until last November, had never voted for a Democrat. Other than not being a Christian, he's the very model of who the Republicans say they want: A small business owner who works hard and plays by the rules. Unfortunately for them, he's noticed how many of his current troubles stem from rule changes the Republican Party pushed through during the period when they controlled the House, Senate, and White House all at the same time.
