That’s nothing. Obama actually appointed one as his running mate.

Just checked.That’s him.Don’t look.”Jesus of course would never masturbate to naked pictures of Miss California winner Carrie Prejean. He has some dignity unlike this Bible-loving hypocrite. Today naked pictures of her were released and in response, I’d like to change her name to “Carrie Pre-cum in my Jeans.”

in my dreams - in der fuhrer’s next presser - a real reporter is called on

opens by reading some of this hufpo post

lifts head and asks

‘why are these people admitted to your press conferences?’

if the spin is ‘taken down’ or ‘one time incident’, read from the celebrations when tony snow was diagnosed with cancer - and when it returned

the only thing a bully understands is a fist in the face from a bigger bully - hopefully someone will investigate the author and his family

"Palin Will Run In '12 on More Retardation Platform"

She reveals their nature.

They fear her. Desperately.

Way to go.

“Palin will never run for President. She is just acting as a good distraction for a real Republican....Mitt Romney. Go Mitt, Go!!!”

Only if real Republicans consist of shape shifting, pro abortion, pro homosexual rights RINO’s.

I’ll pass on that type of “real Republican”.

And by the way, the Sarah Palin that addressed the Republican convention, would absolutely destroy Romney in a debate.

Mitt Romney is a well-oiled sleazeman whose mandated healthcare plan is running Massachusetts into the financial rocks, even as longtime residents migrate out to escape the state rightly called “Tax-achusetts”.

Mitt is a RINO, and will never have the full support of real Conservatives because he is clearly and obviously NOT ONE OF US.

Screw Mitt and screw his campaign hopes and screw his “plants” everywhere who ply their vicious and petty character assassination attempts against those who might oppose him.

He doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in a blast furnace in 2012 - and even if Conservatives don’t see to that, the mainstreamer media will! They’ll set him up, and knock him down just as they did with McCain - if he ever gets that far.

Mitt is McCain lite (give an issue here, take an issue there), just like Huckabee and other RINOs.

Elephant wanted - no RINOs need apply.

Sorry - NO SALE!

Just did a very quick inquiry of his work, per your link. Undergrad level writing, not jocular or especially creative or thoughtful, relying upon shock value to hustle his wares. In short he’s got nothing. Thus my unknowing...

There is such a large number of freepers that if we played six degrees of separation we could probably find out all sorts of info about this creep and other Huffhos.

Since I posted, I called the RNC and told them I registered and voted Repub since Reagan, but am a conservative independent. I said the Republicans hadn't done much for me over the past few years, and their treatment of Sarah was the last straw, especially not saying anything against the people attacking her kids and that snot S. Schmit giving info to VF.

I also told her to take my name off call list and mail list, as I would be giving to SarahPAC to help a true conservative,and our own Senator Jeff Sessions, who is one of the few Congress members doing anything. She said she would pass it along to the Chairman.

If a few thousand people would do the same, Maybe it would hit the NRC---they CANNOT win elections without the base. There are not that many "moderates" and "O" will keep most minorities and a hunk of the mods, no matter what.

Also told her the Repubs didn't seem to have a clue as to what is happening--Obama shredding the Constitution every day and them sitting there thinking it is politics as usual.

“Exposure by Free Republic has forced the Huffington Post to take down an article attacking Sarah Palin over her Down Syndrome afflicted child, Trig, within ninety minutes of the offensive article being written about at Free Republic.”

When FreeRepublic has enemies like that vicious foreign strumpet Ariana Huffington, who woul slither so low as to attack a child with Down’s Suyndome. we KNOW we are on the right side.

Leftists keep proving, over and over again, that they are the most despicable creatures on the planet. Good for FR! Any small victory helps, even against such odds that we face... against the evil that has enveloped our country.

I fear that Palin has chosen the welfare of her family over that of her country. I hope such is not the case, although I wouldn’t blame her if it was. Point being....logically, if ‘her’ country goes down...so does her family, right along with all the millions of other families that will suffer as a result of the leftist/Marxist commie bastards.

Palin was/is our last best hope, in my estimation. Unless there is someone else out there that I am unaware of as yet, I’m afraid that our worst nightmare has happened. And in a NY minute.

God help us.

Nelson is claiming he pulled the article of his own volition.

From Bloggasm:

Simon,

No story, I pulled it down. I got some emails from offended loved ones of the retarded. No one was seeing the absurdity of Palin hiding behind her children, so my piece was not accomplishing anything good. That’s all that happened.

Best,

Erik

Can’t wait to hear what Davodd Litterbox will have to say about this tonight.
If I were to make a funny out of Palin making her announcement, I’d show the part of the video where the birds are frolicking in the water behind her and have turn around and bag them both with one shot and then give the recipe.

Can’t wait to hear what her plans are.
1. Senate
2. Sick of it
3. CNN thought baby which is cool with me. My mom was 44 when I came along and nearly 46 for my younger brother.

More power to Sara Palin whatever she does. I know it will be a job well done.

Exposure by Free Republic has forced the Huffington Post to take down an article attacking Sarah Palin over her Down Syndrome afflicted child, Trig, within ninety minutes of the offensive article being written about at Free Republic.

I'm glad the article was taken down, but it looks like this piece is just a vanity post that offers no real evidence of the headline assertion. Huffington Post is seen all over the web, so how do you know that it wasn't some other factor or influence that lead to it being pulled, over an hour later?

...when RNC calls, tell them we are not donating to them, but to SARAPAC, that we are furious about how leading republicans and their 'hores (s.schmidt) have treated Sarah.

Great idea!

I get a picture of an elephant walking down a dirt road, carrying a knapsack on a stick with his trunk, and carrying a sign by his tail that says, "Sarah 2012".

Maybe have a big carnival tent in the background with GOP banners waving in the breeze.

That “pull down” message is offensive in itself. At least any future apology is impeachable as a result. Not that one would be forthcoming.

...after losing the GOP nomination in 1976, Reagan became the face of the GOP and was able to travel the country attacking Carter and won the presidency in 1980.

Palin is now in EXACTLY the same position that Reagan was in 32 years ago.

The slower kids in the class will begin to understand this in a week or two.

Obama = Carter

Palin = Reagan

You really shouldn't have to spell that out for folks, but, oh well...

Free Republic rocks! Excellent guy, really.

I am convinced Sarah is hated by the left because they are jealous of Trig who receives more love from his mother than they ever received from theirs.

I firmly believe the sniveling, maladjusted miscreants who demonstrate derangement over SP have sick relationships with their own mothers.
