No – please stop! My sides are splitting!

Which writers write this – the McCain camp or Jon Stewart’s writers?

It has been long-thought that the Americans don’t do or get irony. But I have to diagree – they are so superior at it, it is us, the rest of the world that do not.

It is patantly obvious when reading some of Palin’s speeches, or, I should say those that are written for her.

If this was Saturday Night Live – I would simply have a good giggle at it and let it go by – but this is a serious race for the US White House – and no one is batting an eyelid:

Ethics woes aside, Palin focused her attention on abortion — an issue that rallies the conservative base but some say alienates independent and women voters.

“In times like these with wars and financial crisis, I know that it may be easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life, and it seems that our opponent kind of hopes you will forget that,” Palin told a crowd in Johnstown. “He hopes that you won’t notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea is on this and his record is until its too late.”

Can you see the obvious in that? The right to life AND sending young people off to war in far off lands? And that Barack is radical because he goes along with a decision, Row V Wade, that is decades old – a woman’s right to chose – man, that is radical!

But Palin said Obama’s record on the matter is too extreme to be ignored, and she spent 10 minutes of her 30-minute speech discussing abortion.

“A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate that we deserve and that we need on this issue of life,” she said.

OK – but we should ask her, as she is all FOR States having the right to chose on their statue books – will she come out and say that the radicals who bomb clinics, threaten the lives of nurses and doctors, even murdering them – is to be condemned by her if she should get the nod by the American people?

Thought not – that seems a bit radical to me – that a VP pick is all for one American killing another American over the right to life or choice – but somehow thinks that a hard fought legal case should be ignored by the people. If Ms Poodle really wants to get rid of Roe V Wade, why not take out another law suit to fight it in the courts?

No – that not good enough? Hmmmmmmm.

Palin opposes abortion in all cases, including rape and incest, except when a mother’s life is in danger, and said she believes Roe v. Wade should be overturned and the decision given to the states.

Real clear on that one then – so long as the baby can get old enough to go fight a war and get killed in another country – alls good with her? Oh – Kay!

Irony – oh the irony!

    I’m not on their side, but must say that their entire campaign is absolutely mind-boggling. Appearance after appearance it’s this same ole same ole stuff directed at their “base”. It’s the undecideds who will decide this election, and No. 1 on their minds is the economy collapsing around them. I’ll just stop there. It’s all just so ridiculous.

    I watched that speech. All I can say is she needs to learn a little humility.

    Only a cavewoman can dream of taking the right to an abortion from a 21st-century woman. For one, we’ll be finding more infants in the dumpsters… Crawl back into you ice age cave, Mrs. Palin, Alaska must have plenty of those. Have a couple of WalMart moms with you to keep you warm. Ya’ll have never seen or learned anything about the rest of the world anyway, you betcha (did I spell it right?), so you’ve got nothing to lose.

    Education is the key. It is the key to breaking social, economical barriers that many children face. We preach about it, fight for it and push for it every chance we get. It astounds me that when it comes to sex we think education is terrible. Education does not lead children to sex as a matter of fact breaking the silence empowers children, mainly girls to make better decisions. As a teacher and a mother I am hope that no girl, woman ever has an abortion. That being said, education is the only way to slow and stop abortions.

    I agree with Obama, In his comment that he hopes his daughter does not have to be punished with a baby or an STD because of a mistake. Children are wonderful gifts from God, but when you are a teen it is a hardship for the mother and the child to overcome. If we educate our children they are more likely to wait to have sex and less likely to contract a desease if they do.

    We need to be good thinkers and realize that talking about issues does not lead to the act. Keeping it a secret and taboo makes it interesting and dangerous.

    Lastly, Palin spouts about abstinence and evidently that is what she taught her daughter. Sadly it did not work for either one of them. If you look at her biography she (Palin) was pregnant when she eloped.
    So much for practice what you preach!!

    Palin might become a footnote on jeopardy someday… just maybe.

  6. PETENA says:

    Get real! Its the economy stupid

  7. Hannah Stevens says:

    I keep saying this over and over again. The right to choose is basically for the middle class and the poor. If it were taken away, they would be the women who would suffer form this, as the wealthy will always have the option open to them by going to Europe or some other foreign country if they want to abort a fetus. And it is the poor, if they would have to have children they couldn’t afford to feed that again would feel the pressure. I remember the time before abortion was legal and many women died by trying to abort themselves or going to back alley abortionists. This should never happen again. and like so many say here, the right wing does not want abortion, but they love war. And they won’t pay for services after the baby is born. Disgusting.

  8. i am surprised by Palin. She is unbelievable. So she would rather be the grand mother of a child who’s father is a rapist or incest than go for an abortion. if she gets this in to law, millions of teenagers in US would have bastards!! haa funny

  9. Indian says:

    I friggin hate the most racist person in the world Sarah Palin.

  10. Joe says:

    I said it before “Palin is a stupid bitch”

  11. Mary says:

    paint a moustache on Palin and call her little hitler this is the same political atmosphere of hate that allowed hitler’s rise and then the downfall of germany. be careful what you wish for or you just might get it! America take a lesson from history

  12. pirano says:

    I really don’t care much at all for this pathetic pair either, but a humble suggestion: keep the Nazi/Hitler comparisons out of the debate. It really doesn’t do anyone any good. Cheers!

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
