Sarah Palin: From Here You Can Actually See Them Being Commies

From her ABC Interview:

Pressed about what insights into recent Russian actions she gained by living in Alaska, Palin told Gibson, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

The actual good news in her interview is that since joining the McCain ticket Ms. Palin has recanted her AGW Skeptic ways:

FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska (AP) — Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's assertion that she believes humans play a role in climate change — made in her first major interview since joining the Republican ticket — is at odds with her previous statements.

...which means that she has been told by the campaign to recant, which means 1) the sheen on her will come off a little bit for U.S. SoCons who put a lot of stock in a denialist stance on this issue, and 2) John McCain is signalling to the mainstream that he takes AGW seriously enough that he wants his VP candidate to stay on the same page as he is (rather than freelance to attract Conservatives).

A welcome development, since most recent polls have turned in McCain's favour.

Meanwhile, one Vancouver blogger is heading South to Canvas for Obama in the American West.


Good luck, dude, you'll need it.

Yes, the stoft-touch treatment on today's news is astonishing.

One is more likely to hear how resilient she is than the fact that she didn't have a clue on many questions or outright conflicted answers from things she said just weeks ago on some topics (global warming).

I keep expecting a reporter or analyst to say, "She tries real hard" as if that is suddenly the pinnacle of expectations.

The funniest thing about that interview was Charlie Gibson sitting there looking like he was in pain trying to cross his fat little legs. He looked like he was in some pain.

He's fatter than Gore now and equally as pompous & pious.

Stop staring at his legs, you fat homo.

Anyway, it's a good thing Americans are so geographically illiterate. I'm sure they think Moscow is just a short drive from the Alaska/Russia border and I'm sure they don't even know that there's aren't even any roads through Alaska to that border. Both sides are empty, barren frozen wastelands.

It's not that these rightists are stupid, so much as they're stupid about very basic things.

ohh ti-guy you old closet homo.

I'm as hetero as they come and 100% woman all the time. Not fat either, all curves, all the time.

You may want to go see a shrink about you inner self, see if you can get that sexual identity thing sorted out.

Only if you promise to get your GED and a library card.

Deal?

Which explains why we've so easily sidelined the left in our election here.

And anyone see Matt Damon's mental meltdown over Palin? As an actor, he fearlessly fights assassins, in real life he's terrified of hockey moms.

Oh brother.

"Huh?"

Damon is dense, didn't think you were also ti-guy.
