Well, at the very least she's out there putting the heat on the Goopers and getting even with the MEANstream media.

I just counted 14 DiFFERENT news sites, ranging from Left to Right to in-between who are carrying the story from Bunker Hill: Palin's Shot Heard 'Round the Gooper World.

That's 14 without even looking for others....

Well, all day long at the Memo I hear how great Sarah is at this or how wonderful Sarah did that! Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!

DJ.

Yes, DJ, things like that can happen at a "conservative-leaning" site, especially when one of the most talked-about political figures in modern US history happens to be making news, as she did again today at Bunker Hill. It's called newsworthy.

BTW, I understand Monicamemo to welcome competing views (it even has a screaming pwogwessive mental patient.) If you have a strong feeling for Mitt Romney et al, why not count for us the reasons why? Who knows, you might even convince someody here. I don't think Ummah is laughing at Romney, is he? And Monica has already described him as (excuse the expression)"eye candy."

Gringoman, what do you mean I am not laughing at Romney? Frankly, I don't think he can beat the Bama.

Romney is a fluffy butterfly who's too nice to even bring a knife to the gun fight.

If you have a knife at a gun fight you have at least some chance of winning, IF you know how to THROW your knife at the right moment.

Savage seems to think he can beat the Bama but I disagree. Though I like that he said that at least Romney is an American and we know where he was born and his father was an American and so on.

As for seeing a real Conservative in the White House, Savage was pessimistic, saying that may take a few decades to achieve.

Okay, Ummah. Got it. Does DJ? I mean, does DJ know what you think of Mitty? I think DJ knows my view.

BTW, FYI, I think Romney is a fine family man, and in many ways a respectable American, probably five times as decent as the typical Democrat gangbanger. I just don't want to see any Gooper heading the G.O.P. ticket in 2012. These Goopers will be chopped liver for the Chicago racists and socialists and their mogul-funded media hacks. If Romney really wants to serve his country, I'm sure that Sarah Palin could and would find a place for him in her cabinet.

Ease up G-Man. I made that comment in jest. It was a takeoff of the well known Brady Bunch Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! quote.

I know, I know, it went over like a lead balloon, but it was meant to lighten things up, not to agitate or as a challenge.

See y'all tomorrow.

BTW, Savage says Romney is odds on favorite to win.

Keep dreaming. Romney is the man to beat for the GOP nomination; and that's all there is to it. Is he the best man for America? Hardly. Is he what Tea Partiers want? Nope. A true Conservative? HA!
Can he beat Obama? Just Maybe...and that's all the GOP cares about.

(DJ, more Palin. They just can't stop talking about her. So scroll away if it's too much for you---or give us a Romney counter-weight)

//////.........Great local political prose. Speaking of which, our own Boston Herald political reporter Joe Battenfeld got the scoop in spades re Palin vs Romney and the Northeast Corridor fuddy duddies:

Palin seems to understand what other candidates don’t right now. The 2012 campaign is going to be driven mostly by Internet buzz and social media, not scripted speeches and the network news.

Palin uses Twitter to communicate. Romney uses PowerPoint. I’m pretty sure Newt Gingrich still uses a slide projector.

The former Alaska governor also isn’t afraid to mix it up with her rivals, and the dreaded mainstream media. This strategy also ensures she will dominate the race, until or unless she gets out

(and I don’t think she will).

Horror for US Economy as Data Falls off Cliff
Published: Wednesday, 1 Jun 2011 | 2:09 PM ET

By: Patrick Allen
CNBC EMEA Head of News


The last month has been a horror show for the U.S. economy, with economic data falling off a cliff, according to Mike Riddell, a fund manager at M&G Investments in London.

"It seems that almost every bit of data about the health of the US economy has disappointed expectations recently," said Riddell, in a note sent to CNBC on Wednesday.

Employment Data May Be the Key to the President’s Job
By BINYAMIN APPELBAUM

WASHINGTON — No American president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt has won a second term in office when the unemployment rate on Election Day topped 7.2 percent.

"Can he beat Obama? Just Maybe...and that's all the GOP cares about." - longrifle


Some people would argue that's all they should care about.

But can a GOP Mormon ever successfully run the guantlet of fundamentalist christianist morons cultivated like weeds by Rove?

That's the question.

Let's see what happens if and when Sarah Palin declares. All those leftards hate her anyway but all the non-voters will come out in droves.

TIME FOR REAL CHANGE.

ALL morons eventually find their way back home to the Democrat Party. Therefore the the question should be: Are their more morons in the American electorate than normal people? Of course the election of Obama in 2008 indicates we've already passed the tipping point.

DJ

But on a more encouraging note there's this:

Do the resident theologists here not notice the latest blaspheming by Mental Patient X?

Mental Patient X holds forth as a follower of Jesus and an expert on Satan too. The Southern evangelists object to the Mormon equating of Jesus and Satan as spiritual brothers.

MP X, a self-styled "Christian," calls these evangelists "morons."

It logically follows that Mental Patient X, self-styled "Christian," sees nothing wrong with equating Jesus and Satan, and is therefore an abject hypocrite and blasphemer, or else does see something wrong with it, and is therefore an abject liar.

ps Of course, there's a third possibility. Mental Patient X is an angry lunatic.

WIENERGATE cont'd:

He won't say whether it's him in the photo or not.

LOL

Which means that of course it is him.

LOL

The Congressman adamantly denies tweeting a suggestive photo of a man in grey underwear to a 21-year-old woman, but was far less clear about the photo’s origin when pressed by CBS congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes.

Cordes: “Congressman, I think the main question people are asking is, was that a picture of you?”

Weiner: “Well the main question that a lot of people are asking is did I send the photograph. I did not, this was a prank, a hoax.”

Cordes: “So it sounds like it was a photo of you.”

Weiner: “Well we’re going to try to find out exactly what happened.”

Weiner is also dodging questions about why he followed the Washington State College student on Twitter, along with a bevy of other young women, refusing to answer reporters’ questions about whether he ever sent her private messages.

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but Weiner's physiognomy certainly dosen't help his credibility.

DJ,

Methinks you lean toward Possibility #3 as the best description of Mental Patient X, i.e. not liar, hypocrite or blasphemer, but simply angry lunatic.

Or could it be a combination of all four toxins?

RafeMasters_76

Sara Palin is an idiot. Her own Republican peers even think so.

Maybe xbjllb thinks that 90% of Mormons don't KNOW their Church teaches that, the way that 99% of Christianity at large doesn't realize the concept of life beginning at conception is Church and science-inspired blasphemy either and goes 100% against what Christ and the early Christians believed.

Maybe xbjllb believes that God cuts most people slack for not knowing what their churches teach UNTIL THEY HEAR THE TRUTH.

Wow. That would also explain how natives in New Guinea who never heard the Gospel could actually be just fine and right with God too.

And how evangelism, as a front for imperialism, was never needed or Christian.

What never ceases to amaze me is how people of such intelligence as yourselves, in their hurry to "catch" me, never once just stop to think things through for themselves to come to the same logical sane conclusions.

xbjllb

Sheesh. The more I stay away, the more you're obsessed with me.
