Con Artist Palin Makes Gondorff And Hooker Look Like Amateurs

 Do you remember the great con artists, Gondorff and Hooker? If not, let me familiarize you with who they were.

Gondorff and Hooker were the two con men, played by Paul Newman and Robert Redford, who, in “The Sting” put together one of the greatest cons, at least in Hollywood, to come down the pike as they fleeced, and conned Doyle Lonnegan out of a half a million dollars.

And, of course, for those days it was a lot, an awful lot of money.

But, that half a million greenbacks is nothing compared to what Sarah Palin, the con artist that quit the governor’s seat in Alaska, is about to salt away in the bank, while at the same time deceiving and conning her biggest audiences, the Tea Baggers, The Tea Party movement, and of course, the entire radical right wing of American politics.

Palin, by recent accounts, has already raked in about 12 million dollars, with much, much more to follow. And, all of this since the day she walked out on the people of Alaska and quit her governorship in mid term.

Caribou Barbie, as she is known by some, has received 1.25 million dollars for her book, “Going Rogue.” (which had to be given away because very few, other than her mindless followers, would pay for a copy of it)

She, allegedly, gets about a hundred grand for each of her boneheaded speaking engagements, and now, expects to bring home a million dollrs for each episode of her TV Reality Show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

Is Sarah Palin’s Alaska that part of the state in which one can stand and see Russia.

Just recently, Keith Olbermann, host of the Countdown television program on MSNBC pulled no punches when he flat out called Palin an “IDIOT.”

And, as far as being astute on American, and World, happenings, she is, for all intents and purposes a brainless, ignorant “idiot.”

Whenever she opens her mouth on a podium, any podium, she displays that ignorance, time after time, with statements that are as far from the truth as Alaska is from China. She hasn’t, yet, said that she can see China from Wasilla.

But, both her, and her con artist husband, have lied and deceived their way from a small town in Alaska to the candidacy of the second most important position in the world, Vice President of the United States.
While in that position, as a candidate, she saw what would be next on her agenda….it was all there for her…and she was about to embark on the biggest con of her life, way beyond what Gondorff and Hooker could ever have imagined.

She was all over the place. Anywhere, and everywhere, one looked, there she was, winking, blinking and throwing out her cute little gotcha’s and betcha’s at an audience that seemed to be far too dumb to see the con, but yet they were there, big in numbers, making her bigger and bigger, and of course, much, much richer.

So, she continues onward. She has now latched on to her partner in crime, Michell Bachman, congresswoman from Minnesota.

Bachman, at this point, has not raked in the huge dollars. Probably because she is still a member of the United State congress, but take this to the bank (no pun intended) if Bachman does not win her battle to get re-elected, you can be sure that before you can say “gotcha” she too will have a book on the market, and will be pocketing some six figure amounts.

And all the while, Palin is still telling her followers that she is one of them. That they are like her, and that there is much at stake in what they are doing.

And, of course, being the good little “ditto heads” and “Hannitized” individuals that they are, they, like Doyle Lonnegan, can’t see beyond the con that Palin is using them as pawns for, for her gain and her benefit.

These people, average Americans who work hard (well, at least some of them work) live from pay day to pay day, they are being used, and conned, while they will never, in their lives, ever reach the financial level that Sarah Palin has, and all at their expense.

These poor mindless slobs of America, the Tea Baggers, and others, can not see how they are being used, and conned by “Caribou Barbie.”

So they continue to show up at the rallies, they stand there with there signs, many of them vulgar, and they watch, and listen to, Sarah Palin as she continues the con and laughs all the way to the bank, at their expense.

They are far too gone to see how they are being used.

So, move over Gondorff. Move over Hooker. Sarah Palin has exceeded what ever you were able to do. She has become the grifter of all time.

And, it will get even better for her. What a pity.

White Folk, More White folk, and Even More White Folk

I was watching Rachel Maddow , on MSNBC, for a while and, as I usually do, I switched over to Hannity for my one minute look see to see what he is lying about today. (I always watch a minute or two because I say – to defeat your enemy, you have to know your enemy)

Anyway, he was coming from New Orleans tonight and he had on as his first guest, Michael Steele, the beleagured African American Chairman, followed by, whatever the hell his name is, the governor of Louisiana.

I was curious, so I checked results from the last census, in 2000, to see what the population, by state, was for black african-americans.

And, my results were pretty much as I expected.

Mississippi has the highest percentage of black African-Americans at 35.6% of the total population.

Guess which state was second? Yup, Louisiana with a figure of 30.8% of the total population being black, African-Americans.

So, here is a black African American, one of the most recognizeable ones in the nation, Michael Steele, and as the camera angles moved from Hannity to Steele, and to other areas, there was not one black face in the crowd from all of the various camera angles.

It was a wall to wall crowd of white faces, and all probably Christian evangelical types, too.

Now, wouldn’t one think that with 31% of the population being black, that for every 10 people in the audience, 3 of them would be black African=Americans.

That would be a reasonable assumptiion, right?

That being said, why would it be that there was not one black face that I could see….

Now, I am not suggesting, or saying, that there weren’t any black African Americans there. I am sure that there were quite a few but they just weren’t tall enough to be caught on camera, or they might have been in the crowd BEHIND the camera men.

Do any of you have any thoughts on this? I am sure that many of you fine people might be able to clear up this mystery.

With 31% of Louisiana’s population being black African Americans (2000 census), why weren’t any of them at the Hannity gig? Or, were they?

Who are we at war with in Iraq and Afghanistan?

First, for there to be an actual “war” there needs to be a declaration of war, which there never was.

Secondly, one needs to know who the enemy is, and who one is fighting in order for there to be a justifiable, declared war.

A war on terror, for example, is not really a definitive war because there is no clear cut enemy, and for that matter, there has ALWAYS been some sort of war against terror….from the beginning of time.

Now, regarding Afghanistan. In the beginning we had a fairly clear cut idea on who was the enemy, and what we needed to to to get to the enemy.

If memory serves me correctly, our invasion into Afghanistan was totally for the purpose of retaliating against Osama Bin Laden and Al Quada.

Correct me if I am wrong with that assumption.

And, if memory also serves me correctly, at that time there was no mention of a Taliban. Our invasion weas solely for the purpose that I stated above.

Correct me, again, if I am wrong with that assumption.

As fighting cotinued, our troops were in an area known as Tora Bora, and as I recall, we were very close or on the verge of either capturing, or killing Osama Bin Laden, the reason why we invaded Afghanistan.

Correct me if my assumption is incorrect.

It was at that time , as we were closing in on who we went after, George w. Bush decided that it was time to pull the troops from Afghanistan and concentrate on an invasion of Iraq because they allegedly had weapons of mass destrucion that they, conceivably, could use against us, attack us with. It was not for the purpose of removing or killing Saddam Hussein of for rebuilding a new nation out of Iraq, and it certainly had nothing to do with oil, or a personal agenda of George w. Bush against the man, Saddam Hussein, who had threatened to kill his daddy. (Bush’s daddy)

Correct me if that is not accurate.

The mission in Afghanistan has drastically changed from what it was that gave us the desire to attack them, while the mission in Iraq, whatever the hell it was to begin with,has no ending, so it seems, and the mission, it changes with the wind.

Would I be correct in those assumptions. Tell me if I am not.

All of the above being said, I, for one, really and honestly want to know what the hell our men, and women, in the proud uniforms of our military, are fighting for, and even more so, exactly what the hell are they having limbs blown off their bodies, or dying for?

In fact, I would like for the President of the United States to answer that question. What the hell are our bave men and women in the uniforms of our armed services doing in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For each and every one of them, they raised their right hands and upon joing the military, they swore an oath….and that oath was TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Well, Mister President, let me in on you something….the real danger to THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES is not in Iaq. The real danger to THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES is not in Afghanistan.

The real threat to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES is right here in our own backyard, on the shores of our own nation, and Mister President. you had better do something about it before that Constitution is torn out from under us and ripped to shreds.

We are beginning to see where those threats are coming from, Mister President, and those threats are as close to you as are your family.

They are Americans Mister President, albeit ignorant ones, who are being force fed and spurred on by familiar names…names that we see, and hear, on a daily basis.

That is where the real threat to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES is, Mister President.

All of that being said, I ask you, WHY ARE OUR PROUD AND BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE SERVING OUR NATION, DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES in countries that are not attacking THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

Mister President, I, and all Americans, deserve an answer, and if you don’t have a good one, then it is time to BRING ALL OF OUR MEN, AND WOMEN, HOME FROM AFGHANISTAN, AND IRAQ……………IMMEDIATELY.

And, once more let me ask, IF I AM WRONG, PLEASE CORRECT ME.

Brain Dead Tea Partiers Are Tools, and Fools, for the RNC and The Wealthy

It’s absolutely amazing how these blind and brain dead tea partiers have become tools, and fools, for the republicans in congress, and the alleged leaders like Michael Patrick leahy.

I did a little searching and here is who Michael Patrick Leahy is. And, once you read this, ask yourself, does he sound like the typical tea partier we have seen on the streets carrying signs????

Michael Patrick Leahy.

Michael Patrick Leahy, a descendant of Civil War and Revolutionary War enlisted soldiers, was born in 1955 in Oswego, New York. He grew up in upstate New York , graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1977, and received an MBA from Stanford in 1981.

He became an Evangelical Christian in 1984, strongly influenced in his decision to believe by many highly rational friends and professors at both Harvard and Stanford.

He wrote his first book, Letter to an Atheist, in 2007.

In February, 2008, he was elected as a delegate to the Republican National Committee as an at-large delegate from the State of Tennessee committed to Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.

On November 28, 2008, he founded Top Conservatives on Twitter, a list of conservatives on Twitter, which now has more than 5,000 members.

In December 29, 2008, he founded The TCOT Report, the source for fast breaking news of interest to the conservative community. Some have described the TCOT Report as “Drudge Meets Twitter.”

On February 20, 2009, he co-founded the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, and called and moderated the very first conference call among grassroots activists that provided the centralized information coordination for Round 1 of the Tea Party Movement, a coordinated simultaneous nationwide event held at noon EST on February 27, 2009 in fifty different cities, which was attended by over 30,000 people.

From February 28, 2009 to April 15, 2009, he continued to moderate weekly conference calls among grassroots activists, again providing the centralized coordination for Round 2 of the Tea Party Movement, which took place in 900 cities across the country on April 15, 2009, and which was attended by over 1 million people.

======================================================

Obviously Michael Patrick Leahy has, or can afford, the best possible health coverage available to any american. He is not the average tea partier we see on the streets carrying sign and making offsneive comments about the president of The United States.

He, along with the Republican National Convention are hardly the type of persons that could use health coverage reform.

But, my guess is that the greater majority of the tea partiers could use health reform. I believe the majority of them are paying through their noses now for whatever coverage they have, and in many case, no coverage at all.

But, they are the tools of the health insurance companies, the health insurance lobbiests, and of people like Michael Patrick Leahy.

They are, for all intents and purposes the “dittoheads” of the right wing talk show hosts who prey upon them, realizing that, as the one time, now deceased, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, Josef Goebbels, said….”If you repeat a lie often enough, the masses will believe it to be the truth”

And, the masses of the tea partiers are proving Herr Goebbels point, to a T. (no pun intended, or was there?)

And so, we will continue to see these “average” Americans, albeit brainwashed, take to the streets, being the tools of the RNC and to people like Michael Patrick Leahy who has no resemblence, in any way, to the poor slobs on the street that he controls through mind warps and manipulation.

These people, with their tea bags hanging from their hats, with their crudely made signs, some highly offensive, on the edge of racism, with their weapons hanging from their belts, would probably all benefit from a solid health care reform package, but they are far too gone, far too manipulated, and have become the “Manchurian Candidates’ of their own “Queen of Diamonds,” people like Michael Patrick Leahy.

What a pity. And in the end, if these zombies win out, Americans all across this great land of ours will be the losers.
