In Her Own Words

There are times when fiction, embellishment or even open-mike night at the local comedy club cannot compete with reality-- a term I use loosely here. The word "reality," like "truth" is often user-defined. Bearing that in mind, here are just five quotations from the Republican candidate for vice-president of the United States... a mere heartbeat away--

"As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day?" --Sarah Palin, interview with CNBC's "Kudlow & Co", July 2008

"Oil and coal? Of course, it's a fungible commodity and they don't flag, you know, the molecules, where it's going and where it's not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first. So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it's Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It's got to flow into our domestic markets first." --Sarah Palin, billed by John McCain as the nation's foremost expert on energy, answering a question at a town hall meeting, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Sept. 17, 2008

"Well, let's see. There's -- of course -- in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS

"You know, there are man's activities that can be contributed to the issues that we're dealing with now, with these impacts." --Sarah Palin, responding to a question on the global warming, during the interview with Katie Couric, CBS

"They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2008

Hey Barry, sorry but I’ve been away trying to rescue this country from third world status, but sadly, it’s not going well. As usual, there’s a bunch of hate/fear from the left going around mostly from their controlled media, that distorts anything they don’t like. Seems the Lndsey Lohan mentallity/hope for the future is so deeply entrenched that only emergency surgey can do the job. I’ll be in Costa Rica for Christmas so I’m busy setting these vermin
( mostly the LAtimes commies) straight thru email while I plan my trip. Also, my business is so rockin’ I can’t even get to the bank during business hours.
The weather is beautiful here and I was able to take some pics down in the South Bay. The steady unswerving lack of trendy cry babies, and especially the McCain/Palin promo signs in the yards sure is a breath of fresh air....good to know you can still find decent folk even this close to Hollywood. Oh well, gotta go, Tony Villa has just made another aztlan recommendation to help his mexican agenda and it needs my attention.
P.S. congrats on the sox win.

Ah, nothing like the third world for christmas!

I miss the Aryan Youth meetings in Torrance and the Todd & Buffy gatherings in Manhattan Beach. The South Bay is a WASP bastion that makes Orange County seem balanced. Okay, maybe I just went too far. I mean, Newport, Irvine, Corona Del Mar, etc-- Nouveau Nazis. Gotta love it. I lived in Newport for a year. That was the year I went without matzoh during Passover. Couldn't find it. It's funny you bring up the left's "bunch of hate/fear" as Governor Palin is throwing the terrorist association towards Senator Obama while McSame is doing a call and response at his rallies, asking what we call someone like Obama--and the terrorist word comes right back. Happy to hear you're staying busy. I don't know anyone that does what you do nearly as well. Don't ever change.
