Sarah Palin serves up more nonsense as she leaves office

I’m not sure how “stepping down” helps anything. One thing is for sure. Palin loves being in front of the camera. She loves the spotlight.

Alan Colmes has more:

In her bizarre farewell speech as governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin fed red meat to the right-wing, invoking patriotism and the military in her first sentence.  It was unclear to whom she was referring when she talked about those who are “tearing down our nation”, “American apologetics” and unmentioned forces “suggesting that our best days were yesterdays.” How can that be, she pleaded, when there are volunteers willing to fight for our freedoms.

Next it was on to criticizing the press, lecturing them that soldiers “are willing to die for you,” so “quit making things up!” And the new governor, Sean Parnell, has a nice family too, “so leave his kids alone!”

After what sounded like a campaign speech for re-election, it was time to defend gun rights, and warn that “You’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-Second Amendment circuses from Hollywood.”  This will be done by using “delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets” who will “use Alaska as a fund raising tool for their anti-Second Amendment causes.” Luckily, “patriots will protect our individual guaranteed right to bear arms.”  And “Hollywood needs to know we eat, therefore we hunt.”

La Governor Jindel sign anti-evolution law

This is crap. This is nothing but intelligent design repackaged. How many times do we have to plow the same field. I guess we, those who want religion taught in church or even in a religion class at school, much get used to plowing these fields every year. In some areas of the country we need to plow these fields several times a year.


From NOLA:

Gov. Bobby Jindal attracted national attention and strongly worded advice about how he should deal with the Louisiana Science Education Act.

Jindal ignored those calling for a veto and this week signed the law that will allow local school boards to approve supplemental materials for public school science classes as they discuss evolution, cloning and global warming.

The state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education will have the power to prohibit materials, though the bill does not spell out how state officials should go about policing local instructional practices.

A subject of considerable debate, but receiving few “nay” votes, in the legislative session that ended Monday, the bill is lauded by its supporters as a great step forward for academic freedom. (more…)

Governor Bill Richardson Endorses Obama

Update: Video from Countdown added. Keith Olbermann interviews Governor Richardson.

I think that Governor Bill Richardson’s endorsement is just as big as when Hillary Clinton got endorsed by Jack Murtha (the anti-war former Marine from Pennsylvania). Richardson, who held two cabinet posts during the Clinton administration, stood with Obama today. Many believe that Richardson may help swing the Hispanic vote for Obama. I’m not so sure. I think that Richardson, like Edward Kennedy, represents an older wing of the Democratic party. They are the wise elders. Richardson makes it easier for Super Delegates to vote with their constituents.


From USA Today:

America’s only Hispanic governor has thrown his support behind Barack Obama for president, delivering one of the most coveted endorsements in the race for the Democratic nomination.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson joined Obama at an Oregon rally Friday and said the Illinois senator demonstrated his leadership abilities this week with his speech on race. Richardson gave up his own bid for the nomination in January. (more…)
