Good old New York Post. They always come back to their base. Today they’re flogging a 7 year old interview given by Senator Obama where he says that the civil rights movement was victorious in some regards, but failed to create a "redistributive change" in its appeals to the Supreme Court, led at the time by Chief Justice Earl Warren. He suggested that such change should occur at the state legislature level, since the courts did not interpret the U.S. Constitution to permit such change.
Saying this allows them to flog the line “spread the wealth around” because "redistributive" is a word that links to the notion of redistribution of wealth which is the same as "spreading the wealth", a phrase that has been used by Senator John McCain to inspire fear in potential Obama voters by explaining that Obama’s tax agenda means higher taxes for regular people. Spreading the wealth around is apparently not the same as bailing out Wall Street and it’s not the same as the overall concept of paying tax in the first place. It’s different and frightening to both of those.
But, the great part is, while they’re busy energetically pointing out obscure links from 7 years ago to the bloated, inane charge that Obama is a socialist; a move designed to steer people towards John McCain, they’re not leaving support for Sarah Palin out either.
Elsewhere in the paper, on Page Six, there’s a meaningless item about how Marieclaire.com has run a short piece on “Lisa Ann - the 38DD-20-34 Palin-look-alike who stars in the porn quickie "Who's Nailin' Paylin?" What does Lisa Ann have to say? Well, not too much (surprisingly!) but she does speculate that Sarah Palin wears sexy lingerie underneath her politician’s outfits and that’s got to count for something.
"I think she probably feels in power by having something sexy on underneath . . . [She's] attractive, and she puts her sexiness out there."
And she may just be right. After all, a central component to Sarah Palin’s appeal is absolutely the fact that moose shooting hicks from rural Ass Rape, America want to screw her. She knows it and she plays it up. The winks and the nods to small town Americans are really just the icing on the sexualised, MILF cake. That and her wildly racist, homophobic, anti-intellectual take on life that a solid chunk of people take great comfort in.
Additionally, Lisa Ann goes on to explain, "I'm planning on giving [the video] to all of my pro-McCain friends for Christmas.". Isn’t that lovely? I mean, I can’t think of anything even vaguely more appropriate for Christmas morning with the young nieces and nephews than giving a group of people a film of you dressed as the first female vice presidential candidate having sex with a man dressed as a plumber. There would be nothing more delightful and calming. Excellent work on BOTH accounts Lisa Ann. Perhaps you should run for Congress. [source] [source]
