    For months, you couldn't turn on a tv, the internet, or read/hear any publication without hearing about the now world famous newspaper question that lamestreem stuperstar Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin. liberals had more orgasms hearing that story than they do with babies getting aborted.

    fast forward to last week, when Plugs Biden was on CBS, he was asked about his website. that fool, the guy that liberals threw Palin under the bus for, couldn't remember the name of HIS OWN WEBSITE! i didn't even hear about this until today, which of course doesn't surprise me.

    can someone please tell me why liberals get away with so many mistakes, yet when conservatives do something not even half as bad, they become the biggest targets of everything? why do liberals even exist? they make even the most sane person bang their head against the wall.

    Oh yes. Because not knowing the name of your own website is just like vp's with a history of encouraging ex-gay ministries... or senators spewing bible and murder on gays in the senate... or monkey dolls as campaign material... or... what was the question again?

    I agree with you to an extent...
    But comparing Biden forgetting his URL addy is a little bit different than Palin fumbling over questions concerning foreign policy, the economy, etc.

    Enter the crowd who say CBS "made" Palin flub up durning her interview.

    Face it... she screwed up during a very important time. The country needed to get to know her... and she didn't do a very good job articulating her views.

    And your GOP is full of just as many hypocrites my friend. Believe me, many of us nag our heads against te walls over what conservative say and wish to accomplish. The GOP has alienated our community. You will not get much sympathy on here when it comes to politics... cause republicans are just as stupid, dumb, and hypocritical as those "nasty liberals."

    GOP: "Small governemnt! Except when it comes to God, gays, guns, and a woman's body!"

    BTW... I'm an independent... I could never join the GOP morally for many reasons... not just the gay rights issue. No offense... if you cannot see the corruption and greed and immorality within the GOP... more power to you! "Ignorance is bliss,"

    Oh and DiscMan...

    If you want to see Palin and McCain glorified and Obama and Biden bashed... watch Fox News... I hear they are just as "fair and balenced" as CBS.

    In addition to the good points that other posters have made in response, I'll mention this: If anything, the supposedly liberal media went easy on both McCain and Palin. There's some pretty damning stuff about both of them that the mainstream media simply didn't cover and most people never even heard about. This is stuff that's on the record about both of them. I don't need to replay it all now, but if you want, I can.

    Biden's had better gaffes than this. Is this the best you could find, or are you just repeating the inane crap you hear on Hannity? Because I hear Hannity's a real journalist.

    _______________________________________________________________

    The answer is easy and there are several:

    1) Sarah Palin didn't make mistakes, she was (is) completely, willfully and pathetically ignorant of nearly everything she was asked about. She's a moron. At least if Joe Biden forgot something, he actually knew it at one time. For someone so disgustingly stupid to ever even be CONSIDERED as Vice-Pres material was silly.

    2) Neo-Conservatives are constantly tearing everyone up about their mis-steps intentionally, just to feel superior and they deserve their own medicine. Neo-Conservatives are the ones who "demand accountability" over something like someone else's infidelity (for example) while they whore around anywhere they like.

    3) While Liberals make mistakes, they are humble enough to try to fix the problem, while Neo-Conservatives (like Bernie Madoff, Geo Bush, Ronald Dumbsfeld, etcetera, etcetera) screw things up again and again and again (because they won't ADMIT a problem) until there's NOTHING that can fix it. See: Iraq, Afghanistan, Madoff, Medicare being turned into welfare instead of an insurance policy (as it was intended to be) Social Security money being stolen and used for wars instead of being put into annuities to fund itself (as it was intended to be) and then BITCHING AND KVETCHING AND MOANING about the mess they made out of it saying it has to be scrapped. WRONG!!

    4) Liberals didn't have any "orgasms hearing that story" we felt physically ill that you people would dare to try to allow such an imbicile into the White House especially after you idiots picked the most crooked, lying little dry-alcoholic, coked out piece of human trash from Kennebunkport to destroy the very foundation of our Democracy over the last 8 years. You people seriously have no clue what is important in this country so let me tell you: without the rights and liberties outlined in the Constitution (which your dumbassed buddy, Dumya tried to destroy), THERE IS NOTHING OF AMERICA TO DEFEND. BUSH'S RESPONSE to 9-11 ASSURED the victory of those who attacked us, by destroying us FROM THE INSIDE.

    Read a book or two, BESIDES THE BIBLE, like some American History or the actual Constitution, and grow a clue about what those people were fighting FOR AND AGAINST!!!!!!! If you disagree with ANY PART OF THE CONSTTITUTION, GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY!!! Our LIBERAL, Democratic America is way more important than you, or any other person who hates this country, including That hockey-puck, Eskimo Barbie.(Sarah Palin)

    OP, I think it's great you want the conservatives to get raptured up to the bosom of Reagan...hey, whatever floats your boat. But if you want to win an ideological struggle, you gotta do better than this.

    Are the conservatives out of power because they didn't get a fair shake from the media, or is it possible the United States is sick of the hypocrisy where conservatives talk fiscal responsibility, but offer only deficit-growing tax cuts as their economic plan? Where borrowing to pay for war isn't balanced by revenue-inducing economic stimulation, war bonds, or tax revenue? Thankfully, a majority of America didn't vote to get shafted by conservatives again. As Bush said, "Fool me once, shame on, shame on...you. Fool me...you won't get fooled again."

    I really think this hardly qualifies as a gaffe, let alone something newsworthy. icon_neutral.gif

    liberals eff up by forgetting their website. . .

    Palin effed up by not remembering what the position she was running for did and was designed to do. . .


    that's the difference between a liberal and conservative.

    OK, enough about Sarah Palin, Disco. How about you try defending the new rising star Bobby Jindal. His introduction to the American public was this week. And even Republicans called his performance amateurish.

    Curious about your take.

    But, for the record, Biden does say a lot of stupid things, and yet he's knowledgeable about the issues, which Palin most certainly was not.

    I'm sorry, but Palin couldn't name the newspapers and magazines she READS. Biden's website is likely managed by a team of communications specialists. I would know, I've managed a few websites on behalf of companies and busy professionals.

    Both handlers obviously failed there, but there is a big difference in knowing what you read and knowing as site that is managed on your behalf.

    and now we find out Piyush Jindel is a big LIAR.
    That Katrina Story is one big frickin' LIE.


    So you see, Palin is not very bright and Piyush is not very bright.

    It's not the the media is liberal....it's just that The GOP is like the Everready bunny...
    they keep going and going with clowns.

    Biden's good for a joke once a week,,,,

    The GOP is good for a joke 24/7

    Agreed. As I'm sure anyone who has read my posts knows I am not in favor of the liberal ideology. However, trying to attack liberals on the merits of the Republican party just cannot work. The current Republican party is so ideologically bankrupt that even most conservatives don't want to claim them as their own. The Republicans should be thanking liberals for focusing so much on Palin's retarded interviews and not on the horrible American civil rights and international human rights violations of the Bush presidency.

    Jindal Admits Katrina Story Was False
    By Zachary Roth - February 27, 2009, 12:39PM
    Looks like the game is up.

    Remember that story Bobby Jindal told in his big speech Tuesday night -- about how during Katrina, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with a local sheriff who was battling government red tape to try to rescue stranded victims?

    Turns out it wasn't actually, you know, true.


    ****************************************************************

    To think....

    THIS is the person the GOP puts out for the whole world to see......and he LIES to the entire world.

    And to think, the GOP didn't doublecheck to see if the story was true?

    WHY would anyone trust the GOP from this day forward?


    Discomat1979....

    Do you actually think that no one in the entire GOP took a look at what Jindel would say that evening?

    Either the GOP was that careless that no one BOTHERED to look at his words.


    Now don't tell me you are going to compare Joe Biden not remembering the name of the website to Little Bobby Liar Jindell's big frickin' lie to the whole world.

    Biden fucks up constantly.

    In an interview with Couric during the campaign, he claimed that Bush was not acting presidential by not addressing the financial meltdown the way FDR did with an address to the nation the day after the stock market crashed in 1929... except FDR wasn't President in 1929. (basic American history) -- "When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened." Of course, televisions were not really around in 1929 (except perhaps on an experimental basis in a lab somewhere). Stunning how Katie was too fucking stupid to realize what was being said to her was wrong on all counts -- that bitch is only as "smart" as the pile of papers sitting in her chubby little lap.

    During the VP debate with Palin, the then sitting senator of roughly 30 years (and member of the senate judiciary committee) incorrectly cited which article of the Constitution enumerates the duties of the Executive Branch (he was ragging on Cheney at the time) -- he claimed it was Article 1 which was incorrect -- that's the article that covers Congress, the very body that Biden had occupied for many years up until that point. Further on in that little bit he did, he misstated the role of the vice president (the job he was seeking) as it pertains to the Congress (again, the place where he held his job for roughly three decades) -- he stated the notion that the vice president can preside over the Senate only when there is a tie vote which is wrong. Nor is it true, as Biden stated, that the only legislative involvement the vice president has is to break tie votes. The vice president is the president of the Senate, where he interprets the rules and can only be overridden by a vote of 60 senators... somewhat different than Biden's very limited and erroneous view of the job.

    Then there was the matter of Senator Plugs attempting to appeal to the concerns of everyman during the debate... imploring viewers to just ask the people who work and eat at Katie's Cafe in his home state of Delaware about how tough things have gotten (like he does)... just one problem: Katie's Cafe had been closed for 15 years.

    Now you can certainly fault Sarah Palin for not being on top some things in the course of her interviews, but at least she understands her job as a governor (funny how Couric never thought it was relevant to ask her about her experience balancing a budget while cutting taxes, negotiating an international energy pipeline deal with Canada, etc... I mean Palin only is responsible for a budget of 10 or 11 billion dollars and 29000 employees, but why would Katie bother to ask Palin about her actual EXECUTIVE experience when it's so much more important to know which fucking newspapers Palin reads?

    Then, of course, there are the many Obama gaffes that went largely unreported. Obama's "57 states," the remark about the "10,000 people who died in a couple of Kansas tornados (actual death toll: twelve). He claimed his parents united as a direct result of the civil rights movement: “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala., because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.” Obama was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965. While on the stump in Missouri, Obama tried to flex his rhetorical muscles with some words about the war effort and the strain on resources -- while bemoaning the "lack of arabic language translators available to help out in Afghanistan," he said " “We only have a certain number of them, and if they are all in Iraq, then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan.” Well actually, the real reason it’s “harder for us to use them” in Afghanistan is because the Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi, or other non-Arabic languages. (Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish.)

    So yes, there is a double standard. It's quite blatant.

    Is there any sort of double standard where we flog a Biden slip-up but allow the former President Bush to act like a superstitious bigoted anti-intellectual fucktard Jesus-freak for 8 years? I'm not sure.
