I have been reading the GI blog, ROK Korea for almost two years now. I disagree with the guy most of the time, but he's a good guy. They have had a few threads going these days and there is one commentor that is a perfect example of the current GOP strategy. He/She has taken every Dem campaign position and turned them into a GOP talking point ONLY because McCain selected Palin based on the sexist assumption that women would vote for her based on gender.
He/She has gotten very nasty in recent days, but I wonder if people like this are really representative of the current state of the GOP.
Here are some of his hits. I am "The Clam".
"I will say it here first “down-low-gate”. This is the blockbuster revelation that Obama has had many gay lover, and they are getting murdered. MURDERED!! Don Young, Larry Bland, Nate Spencer.. how much more innocent blood must be spilt to satisfy the Obama lust for power."
"Its so great that America has a new hero. Sarah Palin. The democrats did what I expected, they backstabbed Hillary to keep her out of the white house. Look at all the Democrats that are running to McCain. Now a new hero has steped forward. SARAH PALIN. Thank you baby Jesus for bringing the world such a great hero."
"Already Democrats want to “bash” Palin because they can’t imagine a world where a woman is VP. Hillary almost broke that glass, but the Democratic machine stopped her. Now Palin is carying the tourch. Palin will be a hero to many for breaking the glass.
The Clam, what do you see when you look into a little girls eyes? I see all the possibilites that GOD can offer. EVEN PRESIDENT OF THE MOST POWERFUL NATION ON EARTH. Don’t crush that little girls dreams because you hate women or wish that women are lower then men. Your wishes will never come true.
Sarah Palin: CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE IN!!"
It’s like a bizarro world with you.“Don’t crush that little girls dreams because you hate women or wish that women are lower then men. Your wishes will never come true.”
Watch it, douche bag. As King Baeksu said, the Dems were there over twenty years ago. Don’t try take credit for something that the Left fought many years for. Having a woman in the VP slot does not allow the swine in the GOP to lecture us about equality. We fought you guys to get where we are today. You might have “forgot”, but we did not.
I know name calling is childish, but you sir are a lying douche.
Back to him/her...
the Clam-Lets destroy this bitch! We Dems gave a woman a shot! She FAILED!!!!
KB-What right does a women have being conservative!
Sorry gents, your glass wall will come down.
Ronald Reagan-Tear Down this Wall
Sarah Palin-CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE IN!!
“I know name calling is childish, but you sir are a lying douche.”-The words of the clam
What is the lie! Clam! Damn your eyes! You sir have lied!
I looked up the word “douche” the clam.
To douche is to introduce a “stream of water into the body for medical or hygienic reasons”
I dont know why you called me that, but your are right I am pure like water, unless you feel H20 is evil, and I am trying to help you (cure you), and other fools, and sometimes helping simple people makes them angry (and childish).
A douche, is medicine to an “intestinal bacteria in the vagina”. That is what a douche is inteneded to cure, a bacteria like you.
People like you look to other simple minded people who will nod their heads in agreement with your insults. But the strong and honest will stand tall.
Sarah Palin-CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE IN!!
She stands tall! Why do you hate her and the dreams of so many daughters of the proud nation of The United States of America!
Its time for change and CHANGE WE ALL (EVEN WOMEN MR CLAM!!) CAN BELIVE IN!
So, you are a douche? Nice.“She stands tall! Why do you hate her and the dreams of so many daughters of the proud nation of The United States of America! Its time for change and CHANGE WE ALL (EVEN WOMEN MR CLAM!!) CAN BELIVE IN.”
Seriously, stop pretending the the GOP is the champion of civil rights. It’s a pretty bogus and offensice claim.
Who was it that said something like this?
“Lets destroy this bitch.” Hmmmm… Oh yeah, it was McCain’s campaign staff in reference to Hillary. The Palin pick was a political pick and nothing more. Open your eyes and stop flattering yourself and your party.
Back to him/her...
Sarah Palin has her own action figure! Children around the world are rejoicing!
America and the world need REAL CHANGE. CHANGE THEY CAN BELIVE IN.
Not the failed politics of GORE-KERRY-HUSSAIN OBAMA.
The Clam, don’t piss on a childs dream.
Hillary said the glass ceiling has 18 million cracks and the Clam is busy tryng to glue that ceiling back to the way it was. The Clam, Palin will bring change to the White house no matter how much you and your haters try and stop her.
Its time for real change: Palin!
Back to him/her...(Remember, I have not responded to him except for those two comments)
There are plenty of smart lefties. Look at Obama, he is full of cunning and trickery.
Back to topic-With McCain on top of the polls, he is looking like a real “comeback kid”. Its good to see the good guys win.
Biden by far is the most anti-woman politician (besides Obama) on the ticket.
Meet Joe Biden: the Anita Hill lyncher! htt p://www.feministing.com/archives/010594.html
Its time for real change people! CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE IN!
WE CAN DO IT!!
Palin for the world!“I wouldn’t even call it a Palin movement, I’d call it a sleeping giant that has been awakened,” Baron, 56, said at a rally here Tuesday. She described its members as a silent majority of women in Middle America who “are raising our families, who work if we have to, but love our country and our families first.”
"Polls say that Sarah is just plain popular. She feels the pain of the common man.
Polls say that Biden is out of touch. A failed man from the past.
36 years in the Senate, Biden is the ultimite insider. Change wont happen with Obama and Biden.
CHANGE WE CAN ALL BELIVE IN! SARAH!"
The latest Obama scandal - lipstickGate.
Charges of sexism leveled against the Obama camp.
and the final one from him/her...
"KKKLam has just the kind of `politics as usual` thinking that needs to change in America. Obama and the Obama-bots like KKKlam see everything through the eyes of division. I think McCain and Palin are going to bring well needed change to washington. Its time for change WE ALL can belive in."
So, here am I. A member of the party who has been a champion of civil and human rights; the party who tried in '84 to elect a woman; the party who fights for women's rights at work and behind closed doors; the party that has always supported women and the party who boasts a dramatically higher number of female elected officials than it's counterpart. And I am being called a sexist and a racist.
The GOP has lost their mind. Any thoughts?
Oh, and check it out for yourself...
