After Palin scored the big coup by joining the FOX news network she decided it was time for a drink.
The latest word is that she will be the key note speaker at the Las Vegas Wine and Liqueur Wholesalers of America convention.
Craig Wolf, the president and CEO of the Wine and Liquor Wholesalers of America said ”Governor Palin is a great supporter of America’s free enterprise system and understands that industries like the beverage alcohol industry play a key role in driving our national economy. We’re proud and honored to welcome her as a speaker. We expect she will share with the convention attendees her analysis of the current political environment and her vision for America’s future.”
These people must have been drunk when they selected Palin to appear as a keynote speaker or as anything else to “share her analysis”. Palin does not know what the word analysis means.
Yesterday morning, Karl Rove appeared on NBC and told Matt Lauer that if Obama decides to send 30,000-35,000 more troops to Afghanistan he would be “among the first to stand up and applaud.”
As expected from two-faced Rove he did not stand up and applaud Obama but proceeded to bash him.
thinkprogress reported that after Obama’s speech last night Rove appeared on FOX and had the following exchange with O’Reilly:
O’REILLY: I did not see a Winston Churchill-type performance. … Summing up, the president’s speech tonight was OK but not exactly the Gettysburg Address.
ROVE: I mean, I think he might need a new teleprompter with some Energizer bunny batteries in it. You know, look, at the core of tonight was good news, but it was badly delivered in a — you know, in a weak frame.
ROVE: And the enemy knows that we’re going to send one quarter less troops than was ..continue reading
Joe Lieberman on FOX News Sunday (where else would Lieberman be?) became the first Senator to quickly voice his opposition to the House bill which passed last night.
This ex-Democrat and now pseudo independent (actually more of a Republican than many Republicans) is willing to stand in the way of health care coverage for over 45 million uninsured Americans.
According to thinkprogress Lieberman has actually picked up the far right wing talking points
LIEBERMAN: A public option plan is unnecessary. It has been put forward, I’m convinced, by people who really want the government to take over all of health insurance. They’ve got a right to do that; I think that would be wrong.
But worse than that, we have a problem even greater than the health insurance problems, and that is a debt — $12 trillion today, projected to be $21 trillion in 10 years.
