Are These Liberals Crazy?

If I wrote somthing akin to what Cintra Wilson said in Salon, I'd never work in Washington again:
Sarah Palin and her virtual burqa have me and my friends retching into our handbags. She's such a power-mad, backwater beauty-pageant casualty, it's easy to write her off and make fun of her. But in reality I feel as horrified as a ghetto Jew watching the rise of National Socialism.

She is dangerous. She is not just pro-life, she's anti-life. She is the suppression of human feeling and instinct. She is a slave to the compromises dictated by her own desire for power and control. . .

As a woman who does not believe what Palin believes, the thought of such an opportunistic anti-female in the White House -- in the Cheney chair, no less -- is akin to ideological brain rape. What this Republican blowup doll does with her own insides in accord with her own faith is her business. But, like the worst and most terrifying of religious extremists, she seems very comfortable with the idea of imposing her own views on everyone else.
Plus, I don't get the "imposing" part. I mean, isn't this a campaign for an election?

I read not only that article, but a few related titles at Salon. They need to talk with some women from Eastern Europe or from Arab nations to get some perspective. Palin is just a bee from another hive than theirs and they are insane.

Exceptionally offensive, and if you took a range of selections and used them in GOTV efforts in flyover land it would be incredibly effective.

The Nazi bit - that is so beyond the pale. This is outrageous.

Agreed. The "blowup doll" line really got me--didn't everyone go nuts when Ozzie allowed them in the White Sox clubhouse earlier this year?

> she seems very comfortable with the idea of imposing her own views on everyone else.

BWAAAAhhahahhahaaaa... as opposed to the Global Warming Religionists, you mean?


As I've written elsewhere, I think we're seeing a truly new form of cluelessness.

We have to create some new concepts, here, to describe these phenomena.

I have to wonder what the square root of a negative clue is, because we're clearly getting into levels of imaginary cluelessness undescribed before this point in history.
