21. And of course Andrea Mitchell
had Pat Buchanan comment. Given his lust for Palin, he did his predictable verbal ejaculation.

24. "Sarah Palin rocks Boston" is a shorthand expression
The complete phrase is, "Sarah Palin is in Boston, and she's as dumb as a box of rocks."

...so I wouldn't have to. I wonder if one of our local techies didn't ensure that "quality is job 2" for the audio - hehe.

20. The finest excuse for drinking in the morning I've ever seen.
And I reprise my question from yesterday - Who the hell is payin' for this clusterfuck? This looks like the Rommney campaign, with a special guest idiot. Hire a crowd, stage the event badly, draw 4% of the vote.

22.  "Render unto Caesar" ROFL
10:15 a.m. - Wow. A guy wrapped in a yellow Don't Tread On Me flag
just tried to use the "Render unto Caesar" line from the Bible to
justify not paying taxes, but he got the quote wrong. I gave him the
correct line, and said "It means pay your taxes." He turned beet red
and fled into the crowd. I love this job.

:rofl:

23. Will, can you edit that real quick?
In the paragraph where you were commenting on the freeper's lack of spelling skills, you wrote "he crossed out the incorret 'e'..." Insert a C between the E and the T in "incorrect," please.

26. Here's what's happening in Palin's Alaska
Here is what is happening.

1. There are many Native American tribes in Alaska.

2. These tribes have been permitted by Federal law to live on traditional tribal lands. Some of these lands are over oil or are in good hunting areas.

3. These tribes live in villages that go from about 30-1000 residents.

4. These villages have no plumbing. The natives use buckets to pee in and use lagoons for defecation.

5. Ted Stevens, as corrupt as he was, managed to get $25 million put aside per year to take care of water systems for these tribes.

6. This $25 million/year is going NOT to the native villages but to other programs for whites in Alaska.

7. Meanwhile, these tribal lands do have internet, leading to the bizarre situation in which a native Aleut can order a $200 pan from the Pampered Chef online but can't get to a toilet anywhere.

8. The substandard sanitation (there are lagoons laced with human waste) is causing children to grow up with boils, e coli, and other preventable health issues.

9. The State government of Alaska, when asked to produce their spreadsheets and budgets for the $25 million per year gave a government agency a shoebox of receipts. These were incomplete.

10. The Alaska politicos, mostly white, want the natives off the tribal lands; they want the oil and the hunting, among other things. They are hoping if they keep the plumbing as horrendous as it is, the younger generations will move to the cities.

11. But the Alaska politicos still need money. They USE the native American sanitation issues to get Federal tax dollars and then put these dollars into other programs that suit them.

29. According to one source (the Globe, tho don't know exactly what reporter)
There were only about 1000 people there. According to the planners of the "rally," they were expecting about 10,000 supposedly. When I saw pictures, I thought maybe 2000.

It little matters--Sarah Palin is only showing a lot of thoughtful people what a moron she really is, and will hopefully go away soon enough.

37. I was about four people in line behind this guy....
Edited on Thu Apr-15-10 10:26 AM by Ian David
10:50 a.m. - Just got swept into an anti-Palin protest march charging through the center of the crowd. The vanguard of the counter-protest is getting physically pushed around by 'Baggers who are yelling things like "Europe has fallen!" Nothing excessively violent yet, but the gasoline is dangerously close to the fire.

I was holding THIS sign:




I went to the Anti-TeaKlan rally today! (dial-up warning)

<snip>

When we did our little Liberal Parade through the heart of TeaBaggistan, one older dude with the snake flag shoved into the middle trying to make us get physical with him. It didn't work. We were all shouting that nobody should touch him. Provocation FAIL.
