This year will show whether America is ready for a woman on a presidential ticket. The world is watching.

Ooops, wrong narrative. My bad.

Please carry on discussing how each and every vote that goes for Obama or someone else is a chit in a referendum on race.

Oh, come on Historiann. We all know that Hillary, much like the late Rodney Dangerfield, don't get no respect. It's perfectly normal to be upset by this and Obama's effigies but Hillary just had it comin' to her. That's the tone.

Oh, well. Somehow I don't think Hillary is going to sit on her hands for long. I can wait.

I love this job!

People have lost all perspective and standards of how to treat the "other". The mentality is if "they did this stuff" all these years, it's ok for us to do it.

Or free speech! I work in marketing and was doing a photo search on Getty a few days ago. There was an image on their home page (photos cycle through) of Palin in a little nature set with someone holding a shotgun to her head. ON GETTY!!! To see that image presented as if it were completely normal and purchasable was shocking.
I'm losing my mind in san francisco. I think i'm going to have to go stay in a cabin up north way back in the woods on election night.

That is right. I particularly love all the ones who sent their kids to private schools and avoided the public schools being all blue now. Yeah, right.

I'm teetering on the edge of low grade paranoia.
The hatred and adoration is everywhere.
I was at my local church and a member of the Pickle family circus was
there with his son doing their comedy act.
The audience hooted and howled when the guy mimed McCain's war injuries. The biggest belly laughs were about how stupid Sarah Palin is and how racist McCain supporters are. The son had traveled across the country befriending conservatives. He was up there absolutely ridiculing people that had been open and trusting with him.
It was an ugly evening in the church.
The one positive thing I've gotten from this whole nightmare is that I see what a hypocrit I was. I see how bigotted I was.
Painful.

Scout, I am truly dumbfounded. I cannot attend any meetings anymore of see any friends, cause if I say anything about the tactics and the kind of things you are talking about I get attacked. Yes, I feel totally crazy,

Interesting thing in the PDA list of supporters of single-payer that DCB linked, according to the Partisan Voter Index, Charlie Rangel's (upper Manhattan) and Jose Serrano's (Bronx) are the bluest Congressional Districts among those represented.

We're so blue it hurts.

he's not even trying to play nice--they're gonna shut him out, if they haven't already--

http://sec.online.wsj.com/article/SB1225... -- Democrats Vie to Shape an Obama Legislative Agenda:
Advisers, House Caucuses Jockey for Input Should Senator Win the Presidency; Tensions Over How Fast to Move on Big Issues

"... "It's better to let things evolve than to revolve. Revolutions are dangerous," cautioned Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, the House Majority Whip, who advises a pragmatic approach to governance that would begin with items that have proven bipartisan support before tackling ambitious elements such as universal health care.

"He's a national leader, Clyburn," House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel of New York snapped back, embodying the views of liberals who want to move fast on the most ambitious version of Obamanomics possible. "I'm thinking of his constituents, and he doesn't have the slightest clue what he's talking about." ..."

but whoever it was going after him (the rent thing, and vacation house, etc) is not gonna stop--and Obama/Pelosi/Reid/etc do not value him at all--especially nowadays.

...going to do a post on this, but couldn't figure out how to post picture directly from an online newspaper article (a 13-step process, apparently, lol), and refused to download it to my flickr out of protest, and ended up not posting about this. :)

Anyway, this world has been turned upside down. We've got folks arguing the side issue of whether this is a hate crime or not and historical ethnic intimidation when the heart of this is that this is just plain vile. This is the kind of humor you'd expect from say somewhere in Afghanistan, where they actually do hang women and laugh about it. And, to watch mothers and fathers joking with their children about this and all kinds of other sexist jokes and graphics is just heart-breaking. It's hate; that's all it is, and it can't be sugar-coated. I'm getting tired of the "oh, we're just being irreverent" angle. We're supposed to be better than this. Our side is not supposed to be like this.

How can we reward something like this? It'd be different if these were isolated incidents, but it's been a pattern since the primaries that hasn't just sustained itself, but grown into something totally pervasive.

It's not that the country isn't ready for a woman in the White House. It's that the country can see the woman in the VP slot isn't ready.

The Dem leadership will, I believe, have to come to grips with its shameful (and shameless) behavior towards Hillary.
I thought Howard Dean, who being from Vermont and a former Governor had a certain lack of Village perspective, might be a better Democrat than to let what we saw this spring go unopposed. I was wrong about that.

This election isn't just a referendum on race, though that's the narrative the M$M is pushing hardest right now. Where the trench warfare can still win victories is on the propositions -- 4 and 8 in California, 2 in Florida, whatever it is in Arizona -- and in (some) down-the-ballot races.

It would be a lot harder to get anything in the way of a Progressive policy past a McCain/Palin administration than an Obama/Biden one, I think, though.

stop rewriting history-- seriously.

"Ferraro grew up in New York and became a teacher and lawyer. In 1974 she joined the Queens County District Attorney's Office, where she headed the new Special Victims Bureau that dealt with sex crimes, child abuse, and domestic violence. She was elected to Congress in 1978, where she rose rapidly in the party hierarchy while focusing on legislation to bring equity for women in the areas of wages, pensions, and retirement plans. ...

I said I was wrong about Dean.
What more do you want from me on that point?

Effigies or threat of violence against women/children/blacks/latinos/asians/native americans/whites should always be pushed back at.

(like this incident that i'm sure you were part of condemning: http://theunapologeticmexican.org/elmach... )

But Palin is a joke. I hope she never gets near the white house, at least not until she loses her doomsday wish, her view on VP power, and bones up on some history and international affairs.
