A few interesting revelations on the poli-blogs today after the third and final trouncing of John McCrankypants in the debates. One is this Glenn Greenwald interview with Scott Horton, lawyer, professor, and writer for Harper’s.
Ever wondered who came up with the now stizoopid choice to push Sarah Palin as the VP? Turns out it was William “The Bloody” Kristol.
And the interesting thing is of course, if we look across the whole horizon of conservative columnists, prominent conservative columnists, pretty much all of them are expressing reservations or concerns or they’re outright opposing Palin as a pick, with one really striking exception, and that’s Bill Kristol. And Bill Kristol, in none of his columns has acknowledged that he in a sense is the author of Sarah Palin. He discovered her, he promoted her, and he pushed her through to the vice-presidential nomination.
Because, when you are looking for important advice, you want to turn to a political hack and insider who’s been consistently wrong for eight years on almost everything. And now look where they are! Bwaaahahaha!!
The other news is the unraveling of “uncommitted voter Joe the Plumber” from the debate. It didn’t take too long to find out lots of interesting things, like his unpaid tax problems, but this is the best nugget so far:
Turns out that Joe Wurzelbacher from the Toledo event is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of Milford, Ohio. Who’s Robert Wurzelbacher? Only Charles Keating’s son-in-law and the former senior vice president of American Continental, the parent company of the infamous Lincoln Savings and Loan. The now retired elder Wurzelbacher is also a major contributor to Republican causes giving well over $10,000 in the last few years.
Bwaaaahahahaha!! Can the Republicans do one single thing that isn’t cynical and transparently false?
