Good gosh, Holy Mackerel, Golly-Willikers, Wowie-Zowie, Rowrbazzle, and Holy Cow, have you recently read anything more insane (well, yes you have - but this is still up there).

This person wants to be second in command of a nation of over 350,000,000 DIFFERENT people?

This person ties everything to HER GOD - and wants to tie you to him/her/it also.

Can the American people really be that crazy?

Small minds, closed minds are unwilling to test their own thinking against alternative possibilities. Ideological stupidity means never having to learn from one's own mistakes because the ideology can not be wrong.

Alternative points of view that raise doubts regarding ideological truths cannot be alternative possibilities but must be instead evil.

Imagination subverts ideology and true thought, therefore books that stimulate imagination are by nature evil.

It is like the idea that mere exposure to LGBT people is enough to cause kids who would otherwise be straight to grow up to be LGbt instead.

I do not think one can believe a single word from Michelle the rabid Shitzu Malkin's lying filthy pen.

But I'd pay a quarter to see her and Palin mud wrestle.

Well, this time you will have to. Attacking the messenger (Malkin) doesnt change things and makes this hoax true.

"a bogus list of books Gov. Sarah Palin supposedly banned in 1996. Looks like some of these library people failed reading comprehension. Take a look at the list below and you’ll find books Gov. Palin supposedly tried to ban…that hadn’t even been published yet. Example: The Harry Potter books, the first of which wasn’t published until 1998.

The smear merchants who continue to circulate the list also failed to do a simple Google search, which would have showed them that the bogus Sarah Palin Banned Book List is almost an exact copy-and-paste reproduction of a generic list of “Books Banned at One Time or Another in the United States” that has been floating around the Internet for years"

"But I'd pay a quarter to see her and Palin mud wrestle."

I know people who will pay alot more to see that :-)

I have learned to not believe a single word from lying Reich Wing whores like Malkin, Limpdick or Michael the fraud Sauvage."

Truth is something that has never crossed their drug addled lips.

BTW there is an apostrophe in "doesnt" it is a contraction spelled "doesn't"
