mary-kayJust when you think you’ve witnessed the last possible foolishness from McCain-Palin, along comes Lipstick Gate.

What are we to make of a campaign that, with a straight face mind you, declares itself the party of “Joe Sixpack” while snatching up $150,000 worth of clothes and almost $23,000 worth of makeup consultation? Why would a former beauty contestant even need makeup consultation?

jeff_frederick copySo I’m browsing the net and visit HuffPost and there’s a story about Jeff Frederick, head of the Virginia GOP advising GOP campaign workers to compare Obama to Osama because “Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon,” he said. “That is scary.”

What is scary is that this twit has a statewide stage from which to spout such utter nonsense, and that he can do it with a straight face.  What really frosts my ass is that he’s also a sailor. We sailors can disagree on politics, race tactics, best cruising areas and brand of gin, but this is embarrassing and offensive on so many levels.

So, John McCain is attending the annual biker’s rally in Sturgis, SD.  That is just too surreal.

Will he be attending the “Miss Buffalo Chip Beauty Pageant” topless/sometimes-bottomless beauty pageant? Or the “Ringin’ Wet & Wild” women’s wrestling matches?  Will Cindy flash her girls from the back of a big ass hog barreling down Main Street? Will Mac get a tattoo and swill beer with a bunch of bearded Harley owners? Does he think this visit will appeal to blue collar voters? Who booked this appearance, Sonny Barger?

Too bad he hasn’t picked Mitt to be his VP.  You just know that guy knows how to party.

In today’s paper mention was made of an Oklahoma politician named Brent Rinehart who had mailed out a “comic book” so crudely drawn and bigoted that well, you just have to experience it for yourself.

This piece of literature is so breathtakingly badly drawn that I was left to conclude that it was done by a sixth-grader, perhaps because all the seventh-grade artists were at sleepaway camp.

Then there’s the political “wisdom” contained therein: “Brent voted to remove homosexual references in the county handbook but it was voted down by the good ol’ boys.” He’s also concerned about “pedaphiles, polygamists and homosexuals who practice anal sodomy.”  Apparently, non-anal sodomy is OK. Or, maybe anal sodomy is OK as long as the participants are straight.

I don’t know…the phrase, “tobacco-chewing moron” keeps coming to mind.

So I come home from work, sensing that something is about to go wrong with my body. Nothing definite, no real symptoms, but something ain’t right. As I settle down to watch Keith Olbermann get all snarky, I start shivering. It’s 90 degrees outside and 78 inside, but I’m shaking and sweating. My lower back feels like I’ve been kidney punched. Food is not appealing. This must be serious. I pop some Tylenol, stay up a while longer, but finally give up and go to bed. The Admiral asks me if I got a flu shot this year. She knows the answer. Her look is a silent rebuke. Read the rest of this entry »
