Story on USA Today 😉

WIH: Palin yells.

WIT: Obama is an orator. Doesn’t have to yell.

WIH: Criticism of the current “Do Nothing Senate.” The “Power of Veto” that McCain would use.

WIT: The present Congress hasn’t been able to accomplish much because of the George W. Bush veto. Isn’t the President supposed to execute the law of the land, not prevent Congress from passing laws? We need a president from the same party as the majority in Congress to make progress. The veto should be used sparingly not to get your own way.

WIH: The wonderful pipeline. Dangerous foreign power. Clean coal.

WIT: Clean coal? I have a bucket of coal. Coal isn’t clean.

“Foreign power is dangerous” because they are our enemies. Obama seems to know that and act somehow more decently around the leaders of foreign countries.

Remember Martin Luther King Jr. as he spoke of “making enemies into friends”?

WIH: Obama’s a joke. The Presidency isn’t a place of “self-discovery.”

WIT: Life is a place of self-discovery. Bet Palin found that out when her daughter turned up pregnant. Surely she didn’t plan for that.

WIH: Lies about Obama’s tax plan.

Yelling and clapping.

WIT: Of course, you like it, you’re Republicans. You’re rich or, at least, ought to be. You’re the real Americans, the ones with good bootstraps.

My in-laws were Republicans. My father-in-law once said he was an “elitist.”
I think the poor matter, too.

Mantra 2004, The Republican Convention

9/11. Sob and wail.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

Evil axis. Oh, so plain.
Quick attack. Sadam Hussein.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

Iraqi War. To “heck” with France.
Hide the caskets. The prisoners
WHACK! Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

Kerry in a river-boat, up to his knees.
Looky, looky, looky. No WMDs.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

Morals were so great back in Jim Crow Days.
Now we’re all opposed to those marrying gays.
We wonder why most blacks seem to
vote the other way. Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

We got Dubya. We count chads!
We got Dubya. Ain’t we glad?
We got Dubya. Who needs truth?
Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.

Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! We got Dubya.
Shout then: G-O-P. Bush-ee!
Bush-ee, for the G-O-P.

“Morals were so great back in Jim Crow Days.”
Still, “we’re all opposed to those marrying gays.
We wonder why most blacks seem to
vote the other way.” They don’t “get it.”

Experience matters. Experience counts.
Obama don’t matter. Obama don’t count.
We can’t afford. We can’t afford.
Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! We got McBush.

Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! We got McBush.
Shout then: Character Man. Character McCain.
Character McCain. And his pretty, pretty Palin.
