I can’t stomach the Republican spin

It’s just flabbergasting hearing the people at the Republican convention tonight.  I’m getting dizzy after so much spin, spin, spin.  I had to turn it off. 

Okay we get it:  the talking point says Sarah Palin has more executive experience than Barack Obama including the school PTA, her mayoral position and now Governor of Alaska.  That’s their story and they’re they’re sticking to it.  I do wonder how many times each spinmeister has had to practice that in the mirror so they could say it with a straight face?

Oh, and more terrific news this afternoon for those of you who might have missed it!

The Bush administration is putting together a team to tutor Sarah Palin on foreign policy matters.  I wonder if this short course is called, “Foreign Policy for Dummies?”  Isn’t that reassuring?   Afterall, we don’t want Bush’s third McCain’s first term to get screwed up after that high-quality foreign policy the Bush team put together.

In a few minutes, President Bush is going to try to motivate everyone with fear that if the Republicans aren’t elected in November for the third Bush term, we won’t be safe from terrorism.  Right.  What a joke.  Just saying it over and over doesn’t make it so.  And, what about if McCain is elected, we won’t be safe from the Republicans?

I am happy to see that the Republicans figured out how to support a major hurricane after the inhumane screw-up of Katrina.  Of course, had they botched that, it would have spelled disaster for McCain.  You don’t suppose that that is the only reason why they executed better this time?  No–they wouldn’t do that–would they?

All the best…Democrat Dave

    I agree. You are so right. I just watched George “W” use his usual and customary scare tactics to try and persuade Americans that if they don’t bote for McCain, we’re for sure going to get attacked by Terrorists. Is that the only thing they can pull out of their bag of spin tricks. I’m so dizzy form their spin cycle I have to take a dramamine. I think it’s wonderful that they recotgnized the Veterans, but the sad part is that this is all just a political ploy to get people to think they actually CARE about veterans, when we all know that McCain and Bush recently voted AGAINST providing education benefits to Iraq Veterans (unless they enlisted for a five years or more, and they’ve voted against veterns on other issues as well. The Republican party has laken lying and hypocrisy to a whole new level,
