What Do Sarah Palin and Jesus Christ Have In Common?

We thought about it, and no, we’re not even going to try.

What Do Sarah Palin and Jesus Christ Have In Common? [RedState]

Shorter version: Barack Obama’s confused minions seemed to think he was Jesus… but that can’t possibly be because Sarah Palin is the real Jesus.

All in all, the smartest thing Roberts did in that post was turn off comments… but then he went and enabled them again.

Anyway, here’s the best paragraph:

I said this again yesterday on a podcast with Dr. Melissa Clothier. I’ve also added repeated (and I’ve used this comparison frequently) that with Obama, most people are coming away disappointed in that who he actually is is quite a bit different from the hopey-changey vessel of good tidings people assumed he was. With Palin, a lot of people got it right — she’s a solid Christian, a real agent of change, a threat to the secular left and feminist movement because she can carry a baby and think at the same time, etc. That’s the benefit of being an honest Alaskan instead of a Manchurian candidate.

Yes, Barack Oabama’s clearly a Manchurian candidate because if there’s something a Manchurian candidate could be counted on to do in the midst of a global financial crisis it’s bail out Wall Street, rescue the domestic auto industry, and spark an 80% rally in the DOW. Textbook Trotskyism, that. And Palin can clearly “think” as evidenced by her nuanced answers to such questions as “what newspapers do you read?” (answer: all of them) and “who is your favorite Founding Father?” (answer: all of them).

@Serolf Divad:
The stupid is so thick, you need a chainsaw to cut it.

Two major differences:
1) Jeebus never quit when the heat was on. He didn’t run away from the Romans.
2) Jeebus only put himself on the cross, ONCE.

Apparently, countries full of brown people are only important to Republicans if they have oil and/or al Qaeda.

@al2o3cr: Best thing that could ever happen to Boxer is that she runs against this knuckledragger from the OC and not Carly Fiorina or Tom Campbell. Chuck’s trying to get the tea-baggers all riled up to vote for him along with the fetus-lovers and ghey-haters (CF and TC are both pro-gay marriage and pro-choice) and he’ll probably end up with a plurality of the vote in the GOP primary.

two arms two legs and head?

back at work today.
check out this great pic of my great great grandfather.

people say he looks like me. or did when I was young.

@Capt Howdy: Both carbon-based life forms*?

*Remember folks, mainstream Christian theology teaches that JC was both fully human and funny divine.

What Do Sarah Palin and Jesus Christ Have In Common?
They are both dead to me.

@flippin eck: Funny divine or fully divine? I prefer the former…

@Capt Howdy: The last man hung in the Las Vegas NM plaza was the grandfather of Mrs RML’s cousin. Dude had a picture of gramps swinging at his desk at Intel.

Supervisor says “Maestas! What’s that?!?”

“My grandfather, sir.”

“OK. Fine.”

OT: Looks like supporting Haiti through Wyclef Jean’s charity is not a good idea.

I have heard I had ancestors hanged but no pics dammit.

@flippin eck:

and funny divine

now if the question is what does she have in common with Devine, that a whole different story.

@Capt Howdy: The old man was a cattle thief, as I recall.

the exact reasons for my ancestors necktie party are a little vague. but it is rumored he may have offed someone.

it would have been the father of the guy in the picture.

@Capt Howdy: Capital punishment enriches family histories.

@blogenfreude: I put that up over at the Book of Faces along with a plug for God’s angels at Doctors w/out Chain Bookstores, Oxfam, and the US American Red Cross (which should really change its name to the Red Crescent because of the Muslim president).

@SanFranLefty: @Capt Howdy: Ha! Christian theology would be a lot better off if that were the case.

@flippin eck:

Pink Flamingos (1972)

“Filth is My Politics” Speech

“Blood does more than turn me on, Mr. Vader. It makes me come. And more than the sight of it, I love the taste of it. The taste of hot, freshly killed blood…Kill everyone now! Condone first degree murder! Advocate cannibalism! Eat s–t! Filth is my politics! Filth is my life!”) before executing Raymond (David Lochary) and Connie (Mink Stole) Marble in front of the press.

I assume the commonalities are obvious

now, who wants to die for art?

@Serolf Divad: I don’t see how someone could type this without the keyboard blowing up.

@Capt Howdy: Divine was more woman than Sarah Palin will ever be.

@Serolf Divad: What’s also interesting about the RedState post — besides the fabulously awkward rhetorical gambit — is that Erick is bitching about the response after he offered some constructive criticism to Palin. (Something like, “Don’t cash in on Teabaggers.”)

Lesson: You do not criticize Sarah Palin.

Yet another reason I’m more inclined to enjoy the show than worry about it. She’ll burn her allies, you betcha.

tj/sensing doom in Massachusetts, the Dems are putting out a nationwide call for volunteers to staff local phone banks to make calls in a concentrated GOTV effort this weekend, per email I just got.

I hate phone banking. I always get someone that’s been called four times that that who wouldn’t vote for FDR, JFK or Obama at that point.

Obama is going. personally I think that means they think she will win.

and more of a man than she will ever get ( to paraphrase some drag queen I cant remember)

I sometime in the 80s spent a whole evening dancing with Devine (sans makeup) at a club called the Underground near Union Square. well, afternoon AND evening. it was sunday. I was prowling without any friends and apparently so was he. we danced and danced shared some drugs and went our separate ways. great memory.

and on a completely unrelated note, my fathers middle name was Devine. no shit. dont ask me I have no idea.
I am just glad they named me after my uncle.
