How 'bout dem SAINTS?! The Saints v Colts battle last night almost makes you forget about the other significant standoff between the Teabag conventioneers in Nashville and the rest of us normal folks in America. Tea Party Patron Saint Palin wowed the crowd with her folksy one liners and jabs at Obama's immoral budget. Wow -- what does that say about Raisin Brain's morality, as he turned all the Clinton surpluses into trillion-dollar deficits. Must make him The Anti-Christ by comparison.

One thing Sister Sarah seems to have in common with Mensa Man is the penchant for jotting down handy crib-notes on various body parts. Sarah was asked a simple, pre-scripted question: "What are your top three priorities?" By the time she got to #2, Simple Sarah was seen reading her own palm for phrase reminders on "budget cuts," "energy," and "Lift America's Spirits." That's the kind of grade-school cheat sheet she needed just to answer silly softball questions from her adoring fans. Granted, that's a step above Dim Son's scrawling on his arm "chew the pretzel before swallowing," but think about this -- she was just a hair away from becoming VP and just a few malignant melanoma cells from the Oval Office itself . . . [shudder] those scribbles could've been launch codes for the football . . . think about that the next time you see an old McCain/Palin bumper sticker.

I'm hoping the pit bull in lipstick with the gloves off and the high-heels on stops taking jabs about Obama and the Teleprompter, unless she's ready to take hits on invisible ink, highlight markers, and handi-wipes.

As for the rest of the meeting of the mini-minds in Tennessee? The mass congregation of Birthers, Deathers, Teabaggers, and gun-hugging psuedo-Christians ranted and howled their rally cry for a NEW AMERICA, loudly detailing their agenda to rid this country of all the unsavory elements (Obama) that so offend their very white noses. The overt racism, homophobia, anti-science rapture-ready red-scare-style paranoia was disturbing in its commonplace acceptability, as The Telegraph reports:

Tom Tancredo, a former Republican congressman and anti-illegal immigration campaigner, told the audience in Nashville that Obama was elected by people "who could not spell the word vote or say it in English". If only segregation-era literacy tests had been in place, this "committed socialist" would not have won. Another speaker, Joseph Farrah of, questioned whether the President was born in the United States and was qualified to hold the highest office. A lifelong Republican who has worked for two presidents, told me that "race is part of it, especially down South". "These are people uncomfortable with the country becoming more diverse, more mulatto, and Obama represents that."The Nashville crowd was 99.9 per cent white, and 90 per cent middle aged and above.

If the Teabaggers are this successful at making the hatin' of minorities so mainstream again, then we should be afraid.

How do you like your Dark Ages? With or without medieval torture chambers, "Christian" crusades and commie-liberal witch hunts? Want another funnel cake at the flesh-flaying festival? How 'bout just the bucket of boiling oil?

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
