Repugs In Turmoil

The whole McCain/Palin saga isn't a couple of days old and it looks like they really screwed the pooch, big time.
From my viewpoint the story is far more complex and interesting than what the spinmeisters and their whores in the media want us to believe. McCain has very little support. Hardly anyone is buying his candidacy because most people are fed up to the eyeballs with scumbag republicans and their blatant criminality. In a free and fair election McSame would be crushed for being tied at the hip with BushCo.
But we don't have free and fair elections. The electoral process is wildly corrupt and your vote simply doesn't matter. What campaigns are all about is public perception. The effort is to fool you into caring about a meaningless popularity contest to make you think your vote actually counts. What you're supposed to think is that the contest is neck and neck so when they flip the vote count with their filthy touch screen machines it won't seem too egregious.
So it's all really about public relations and the repugs seem to have truly screwed them up with Palin. I say seem because her selection might actually have been purposeful in a manner that's not so obvious.

Right away people were surprised at her designation. Apparently she truly sucked as a small town mayor just a couple of years ago. Choosing her just completely undercut all of McBush's accusations that Obama is too inexperienced for the presidency. It appeared the McCain camp could have chosen her as a gimmick to appeal to Hillary supporters. She's involved in a provincial squabble up in Alaska called "troopergate" where she's being investigated for having some guy fired because of family relations. Aside from gushy partisan hacks, a lot of media is excoriating her choice as VP nominee.

There's all that, and then there's this: Sarah Palin Faked Her Pregnancy
"Palin said she's already about seven months along, with the baby due to arrive in mid-May.
That the pregnancy is so advanced astonished all who heard the news. The governor, a runner who's always been trim, simply doesn't look pregnant.
Even close members of her staff said they only learned this week their boss was expecting."

According to the author it was her daughter who was pregnant and she tried to cover up this inconvenient fact by pretending the baby was hers. Lot's of circumstantial evidence, including oh so shrill defensive attacks from the kool ade drinkers because of these allegations, but could this woman be just another lying pol?

Apparently so. Palin's First Lie as VP Nominee
"Well that didn't take long. The first brazen lie of Sarah Palin's campaign as John McCain's VP nominee came just moments into her speech accepting his invitation to join the ticket."
It appears she's dissembling about her prior support for the Alaska Bridge to Nowhere, the very symbol of pork barrel politics and a national disgrace. If she can come out with a huge whopper right from the starting gate then she'll be a willing liar about other things.

So how did this person get chosen to be McSame's running mate? There's the official story where Lieberman was first on the list but was rejected because "the base would revolt", and the rest of the front runners were too "safe" for a raging maverick like Johnny Boy. Palin flew in, met McCain and she was selected just like that. All in a few hours.

But there's a huge problem with that scenario. It may have happened like that as far as McCain's concerned, but for very different reasons for other people. Political strategists are beyond extreme in manipulation and leave absolutely nothing to chance. Every possible choice would have been investigated for months to find out every detail in their lives, there would have been endless focus groups studied, computers would have chewed the data, you get the drift. All the incriminating things we've learned about Palin in the last twenty four hours woul have been known for a long time in those back rooms.

But we get a hint of what the real reason was to hang this albatross around McCain's neck in that ABC news blog above. It said this - "... lawyers reviewed her vetting information. They kept their activities from even some in McCain's most senior inner circle."
I'm thinking there's a war behind the scenes at Repug Central. I'm convinced the real movers and shakers there know for certain that John McCain's turd can't be polished enough to steal this election. There's no amount of lipstick that can be smeared on his pig to make his campaign pretty enough to make a win believable. They knew all about Ms Palin's insufficiencies and putting her on the ticket either is meant to get the old guy out of there, or it was Lieberman's camp making sure he'll be the one to replace her when she get's the axe. Because Lieberman has a few friends who have a special knack for winning.

Clap clap! Bravo! EXCELLENT BLOG! The only issue Ruby and Charlie, my Pugs, have is called the Republicunt Central, RePUG Central. :) Not that they subscribe to the lazy Democant Party but they were dismayed to see the Pug name taken in vain...giggle.

You're right to look way below the surface for the reason behind this choice. This is one of the strangest political moves I've ever seen.

really nice rundown of our broken election system that is being run by advertising/spin firms to manage the perception that our vote actually counts-it doesn't and the average joe blow doesn't even know. In fact many joe blow's won't figure out the ugly truth that their vote won't count until they find their names have disappeared off the voter reg files. or if they do get to vote, their vote will go to the other candidate and they'll never know. so the media keeps chipping away at the so called declining Obama poll numbers, that somehow Obama's lead over McCain is shrinking.

BTW, your URL, doesn't work.

question: when does Lieberman get appointed as interim president for our upcoming martial law scenario when elections are suspended?

what's the timeframe, anyone?

Rense was down for a while, anon, which was probably when you clicked the link. It details how Lieberman stole Connecticut with AIPAC's help.
His involvement in the Palin selection process is widely suspected because he wasn't chosen as the VP designate, and powerful zionist interests don't want to leave anything to chance and don't want to rock the boat in their run up to world war.
I don't pretend to know how this will play out but with obvious warfare behind the scenes it will be terrifyingly interesting.
