If you don't know who she's talking about, you've been in a cave since the Republicans wound up their convention in Minneapolis a couple of weeks ago. Kalson points out,
When the most heated back and forth of a presidential race revolves around makeup on animals, you know we're heading into an idiotic election season. Even Woody Allen couldn't have invented this, and he's made movies about sheep in black stockings and garter belts.
The Republicans have a lot to answer for in this campaign. It's no wonder they'd rather talk about which creatures should wear Revlon.
This is the party that spent the last eight years tripling the deficit, putting us in hock to China for the next millennium, driving the dollar into the sewer, invading Iraq without provocation, turning the United States into a torture state in the eyes of the world, putting lobbyists in charge of policy and corrupt cronies in charge of government agencies.
But let's not quibble over details. It's much more fun to whip up phony controversies and see how far they'll blow.
I especially like Kalson's take on the "family values" that Palin and John McCain, who more and more looks and sounds like a doddering idiot, are trumpeting:
Pregnant, unmarried teens facing shotgun weddings symbolize family values if the family comprises Christian conservatives. Pregnant, unmarried other teens -- and let's not even add race to the mix -- symbolize the moral decay of a permissive society. Remember, Bill O'Reilly blamed Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy on her "pinhead" parents, but in Bristol Palin's case, well, these things happen.
It doesn't take much to qualify for pinhead parents. But what's with the Republicans? They are offering pinhead candidates for president and vice president to the suffering U.S. public.
