Tundra Twit Strikes Again
By: Mark W Adams

Lemme get this out of the way up front:
Are--rrrrhhhh Sarah Palin or John McCain fit to lead?  Of course not. Hell, they're unfit to speak.  It must be exhausting being the guy who has to follow after them, explaining what they really meant to say so what they said doesn't sound near as stupid as we heard. 

Remember that skinny Senator with the funny name that McPalin said never accomplished a thing and is too partisan to ever reach across the aisle like the wrinkly white-haired guy and too beholden to the special interests to really hold the government accountable like the Bridge Killa from Wassilla?

Well, the story is that Caribou Barbie wants to "put the government’s checkbook online so that people can see where their money’s going."

Which is cool.  I completely agree with the Republicans on this.  So does Barack Obama.  In fact, Obama likes it so much he already did it.

I guess that proves it.  Moose is not brain food.  Hmph,"hasn't lifted a finger" indeed.

Guys, can we get a ruling on this?

In 2006 and 2007, Obama teamed up with Republican Sen. Tom Coburn to pass the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act, also known as “Google for Government.” The act created a free, searchable web site – USASpending.gov — that discloses to the public all federal grants, contracts, loans and insurance payments.

In June of this year, Obama and Coburn introduced new Senate legislation to expand the information available online to include details on earmarks, competitive bidding, criminal activities, audit disputes and other government information.

Palin might also have noted that her running mate, John McCain, was an original co-sponsor of the 2006 transparency bill that became law.

I dunno who's worse on that team. He's so out of touch, feeble-minded and unprincipled it would be laughable if he weren't so dangerous -- dangerous to the point he and his team would rather risk an international incident than admit being a bit hard of hearing (I can relate) or unsure of the name of the Prime Minister of every NATO ally.  Pride goeth before the fall and all that.

OTOH, she's so out of her league I'd feel sorry for her if she hadn't come out of the box pissing me off. They're both too stupid to breath.
CNN UPDATE: A campaign spokesperson insisted that Palin
was referring not to that specific proposal, but rather to "that kind
of transparency in general."
Whatthefuckever Dude.  Is that anything like "I didn't mean those specific WMD's in that specific country where we must fight those terrorists in general?"

This bullshitting beauty queen ran a PAC for the most corrupt, earmark abusing, indicted Senator they got.  In fact, while Palin was raising money for Ted Stevens and working with him to build a bridge from her tanning spa to Siberia, Senator Tubez put a secret hold on the Coburn/Obama Google for Government bill, before Palin even became Governor. (Props to Steve Reynolds)

Look it up, that's what the GoogleTubes are for. 

In fact, outting Stevens as the secret hold-out was probably the first and certainly only successful colaberation between Right Wing Blogistan and Left Wing Blogtopia (y!sctp).
