For Love of Country

John McCain loves his country so much:

  • Palin was chosen—over a dinner of “deep fried burritos”—out of “desperation” when the campaign realized Joe Lieberman was no longer an option.
  • McCain’s campaign manager found Palin while scouring the Internet for potential female candidates—and the book alleges that her background check consisted of one lawyer searching the Internet.
  • “In the immediate aftermath” of Palin’s selection, “it was clear to us that we had a lot of work to do,” Schmidt says. Heilemann goes further: “Her foreign policy tutors are literally taking her through, ‘This is World War I, this is World War II, this is the Korean War. This is the how the Cold War worked.’ Schmidt had gone to them and said, ‘She knows nothing.’”
  • Why did Palin perform so poorly in the infamous Katie Couric interview? Schmidt says, “she did not prepare for it. She was focused that morning on answering 10 written questions from a small newspaper in Alaska called the Matsu Valley Frontiersman.”

Look on the bright side, Joe Lie ratfucks the GOPers, too (except in this case it was unintentional.)

@blogenfreude:

Mostly everyone, why?

ADD: I take it back. No-one, and I mean no-one, could have predicted the heretofore unplumbed depths of unfunny that that piece manages to find. Somehow, it is both boring and offensive, if that is even possible.

@blogenfreude: Jeezy Creezy! They couldn’t even be bothered to run with something slightly topical. I mean, they go for “prominent white Democrat saying racially insensitive things” and all they can come up with is Joe Biden?

Fried burritos? Do they mean those abominations of chimichangas?

@blogenfreude: “The DC”? So he’s trying to appeal to the kids that watch “The OC”? Lame, thy name is Tucker.

@blogenfreude:This is the freak that went on an interview show (why journalists interview journalists is beyond me, unless they are a 30 year veteran of the Journal of Microhydraulics who’s written books on the subject) and bragged about beating up some guy who he thought wanted to Larrycraig him. I hope he leaves enoough clues on this stupid website about where he lives for a gay biker gang to find him and sodomize him with his dismembered arms.

@SanFranLefty: Oh man. Just reading that comment makes me hungry for a chimi
