Conservative Women: Waiting to Exhale October 13, 2010

When it comes to women, Democrats leave.

When it comes to Democrats, women stay.

Which makes feminism a battered wife in an abusive relationship.

Looking back on what so- called feminists allowed to happen to Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton prove that.

It is not speaking out against women whose political ideas you don’t believe in that bothers me.  It is the use of words such as “cunt” and “whore” to describe women and liberal feminists acceptance of it as endorsement worthy behavior  that does.

I would not vote for Nancy Pelosi and she is a woman.  I can speak out against her policies but still support women in politics.  If Rush Limbaugh called her a whore, I would speak out against it and I have told conservative friends when they are getting out of hand. You do not have to support Meg Whitman or Sarah Palin but you should not support the use of profane, vile insults hurled at them or any other woman during a campaign.

So far we have on the Republican side of the story -a cunt (Sarah Palin, R-AK), a witch (Christine O’Donnell, R-DE) and a whore (Meg Whitman R-CA).  Now all we need to do is hold open auditions for a bitch and a slut and that pretty much completes our cast for the new play “Adventures in Misogyny Land: But it’s okay because these women are Republicans”.

With the uncovering of Jerry Brown’s audio tape where one of his staff members calls his gubernatorial challenger a “whore”, conservatives held their collective breath waiting for the feminist mother ship NOW to speak out.  Sorry conservatives, it did not work when you tried it on your mothers in the toy department and it won’t t work now.  Blue is not a very good color on you so you might as well exhale.

Hmmm, wonder if he thinks the “whore” is articulate and does not speak Negro dialect?

Gee, that was dismissive. Sure whore, sorry whore.  He also thinks that whores should not have mammograms.

Yes a mammogram does hurt, but as a Republican woman AKA “whore,” I think I am entitled to one.

As usual, the political party that claims to be all for women proves that it is NOT.

How Do You Politicize A Problem Like Undocumented Maria? October 6, 2010

Over the winter break of 1980, my mother and I heard much news about “America’s Littlest Defector”.

His name was Walter Polovchak and at 12 years of age, he was a child two years my senor living in Chicago.  Like me, Walter enjoyed  school , sports,  McDonald’s and all things American.  Also like me, Walter and I had the occasional mom issues.  However, unlike me Walter was a citizen of the Soviet Union and his parents wanted him to leave Chicago and go back to the Ukraine where they were from.  Not that my mother did not want to leave Chicago- she did and often spoke of moving to California where “everyone gets everything for free” she would tell me.   California was warm and had movie stars,  I was down with that.  If mother ever summoned the ambition to actually move there (which she would not)  I would have willingly followed her.   Walter on the other hand was not willing to follow his  parents back to the Ukraine.   His sister was 18 at the time and decided to stay at a cousin’s house. Walter refused to go back with his parents and followed his sister.   His parents called the Chicago Police Department which began a media and immigration frenzy.

Walter Polovcheck and his sister circa 1980

With the Cold War in full effect, Americans were of course sympathetic to Walter’s case.  I sided with him. Who would want to give up Happy Meals for a soup and bread line?  Surprisingly my mother, who was normally quite anti-Russia, sided with Walter’s parents.   “They are his parents,” she said. “They have the right to take the brat home…Why is America always getting in someone’s (a foreign county’s) business? We have enough people to take care of on our own…Then Russia will start a war and blow our asses up over some stupid kid.”

“But why would we send him back to a bad place?” I asked.  After all in school they were teaching me that America was a melting pot and we take on the world’s problems.  In my little head, America was everyone’s mother.  Any good mother would not send her child out into the evil world or communism.

And like a good mother, America did not.  Walter Polovchak was granted political asylum and the United States allowed the case to drag out for years until the boy became a man and the issue was moot.    How convenient for Walter and the U.S.   Walter now all grown up and a parent himself, is a documented legal citizen living the American Dream and has never regretted his decision to challenge his parents.

Score one for Capitalism under the Reagan Administration.  America 1, Commies 0.

Let’s jump nearly two decades later to 1999, the Clinton Administration and Elian Gonzalez.   You remember Elian right?  The five year old boy from communist Cuba who’s mother and stepfather drowned in the Atlantic Ocean while attempting to illegally immigrate to the United States.  Elian was found in the water hanging on for dear life, to an inner tube.  U.S.  Authorities placed Elian in Florida in the custody of parental relatives-Cuban American cousins of his biological father.  Elian Gonzolez like Walter Polovchek became a political battle between America and Communism.    With a liberal presidential administration, guess which side the U.S. was on?

The Elian Gonzolez Situation. Less about Immigration, more about politics.

America 1,  “Commies” 1

Walter Polvechek’s case was gridlocked by Regan conservatives in order to give the boy time become 18. Preserving the American Dream against communism became the crux of the argument.  By contrast, liberals moved quickly to send Elian back to Cuba within less than a year.  Found in an inner tube in November 1999, back in Cuba by June of 2000.  He was not granted political asylum.  No one made the case that America the land of opportunity was better for the boy.  When it comes to the fight against communism, liberals have a soft spot for Cuba.  Che and Castro shirts are all the rage.  In April 2009, Cuban president met U.S. Congressional Black Caucus, amidst conservative criticism.  Why were we surprised when Janet Reno sent guards into the Miami house to take the 5 year old Cuban refugee by force?  As far as I know, Elian Gonzalez is the only illegal immigrant that the liberals wanted to deport.

Consider the case of Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman (R-CA) and her undocumented former housekeeper Nicky Diaz Santillan.  Diaz Santillan lied about being a U.S. citizen, possessed a fake drivers license, phony social security card.  She worked for Ms. Whitman for nine years. When Meg found out Nicky was illegal, she fired her.   Now Meg’s campaign for California state governor is in jeopardy because of how she did or did not solve a problem of an undocumented worker.

Meg Whitman did the right thing, however as compelling as the maid’s story was, I would have taken it a step further and reported the undocumented woman to the INS.   That was Meg’s only mistake in my eyes,  not being tough enough.

I blame the person that lied to her that should be in jail now and subsequently deported.   Of course the liberals do not see it that way.

To politicize illegal  immigration’s martyrs, does nothing for the actual fight against illegal immigrants –  it actually helps it and liberals know that.  Didn’t Barack Obama have an aunt, someplace in Boston that was here illegally?  Republican’s  thought the story would put a dent in the Obamabot choo-choo train to victory–it did not.  The story went over the heads of liberal voters like Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright in eating waffles with Obama in drag. No one cared.  There were no National Guards busting into her home to send her back.   Is Obama’s aunt still here now?  Of course she is, she has been granted asylum by the U.S. Courts , she unemployed and living in public housing on your tax dollars and talking…LOUDLY.

Armed with the knowledge and proof that Nicky Diaz Santillan is here illegally, do you think that the U.S. Department of Immigration under President Obama will move to have her deported?  No– surely not because  she is too profitable for them and their case for amnesty.

My guess is that you will not see Diaz Santillan leaving America any time soon.  Instead Meg Whitman who obeyed the law when she learned that her maid was committing fraud and here illegally – is the villain.  Winning for the Democrats is so important that they would jeopardize an undocumented worker’s livelihood and family just to politicize a non-story about someone finding out that their employee was illegal and firing them.

Exactly what message does it sends to us as Americans?

Nicky Diaz Santillan charges that Meg Whitman employed her as a housekeeper at $23 dollars an hour,  for nearly a decade despite knowing that she was in the country illegally.  Ummm, isn’t that what liberals want? For everyone to turn a blind eye to undocumented workers because we are “helping them” and as American’s we should have open borders without discrimination?  Everyone should have a driver’s license and big bag Arizona is wrong to tighten immigration laws that are already FEDERAL LAW.  How wrong to ask for citizenship papers…that is as un-American as water boarding …right?

Could it be that no one is truly interested in solving the problem of illegal immigration- until it benefits their political agenda?

Medical Misogyny: A Cut Above The Rest September 28, 2010

Georgia Cattle Queen, elected by the Georgia Cattlemen's Association, talking with Democratic members of the Georgia House of Representatives in the House chambers.

As if it wasn’t bad enough that I had endured the morning without deodorant,  Chicago was boasting an unseasonable 86 degree temperature in of all times the middle of September.

I crawled from my traffic stuck Moroccan chauffeured  taxicab, and struggled past a group of anti-Bush protesters. Yes anti-Bush.

Now that Obama is president and George W.  is back in Texas,  the IMPEACH BUSH signs have insanely transformed  into INDICT BUSH signs . Tie Dyed tunics and White people with dreadlocks are always a sign of moonbats for me- I had to move fast,  running late for a medical appointment.

Once I arrived sweaty and  frazzled at my destination, I was greeted with a smile, some insurance forms and an offer of wrapped Ghirardelli chocolate squares or Nespresso coffees. Politely, I declined, the pleasantries of the peach and sage green wallpapered office failed to mask the austerity of my situation. As I pumped from the hand sanitizer on the receptionist desk, I had no idea what I would be in store for that day as a woman.


Political party affiliation aside, one ritual all women seem to share is the face grimacing and “God please let this be over” prayers whispered during a mammogram.

My first which I am describing in this post, was two weeks ago. I was a year overdue.
My gynecologist scolded me verbally “self exams are not enough,” she warned. “You are two months past 41 – time to do it annually now.”

“But…but there is no history of breast cancer in my family.” I protested. “Can’t I wait until 45. I eat lots of soy.“
“…and you want to stay breast cancer free don’t you???”

All of the preparative girl talk mammogram horror stories in the world could not describe my true feeling as the nice but relentless four foot eleven-ish medical assistant plopped my left breast on a cold metal slab like a piece of meat and I watched a closing wall and increasing digital numbers squeeeeeeeeeezeeeeee until my brown face turned blue.

“Tell me if it hurts,” she chimed. She was too damn happy for me. Smiling while inflicting pain should be illegal.

It does hurt, but let me guess,  if I told you the truth  you will keep doing it anyway, I thought.

Instead I smiled back and lied, ” No, it’s fine.”  THANK YOU MA’AM CARE TO CRANK IT UP SOME MORE???

That piercing sound the machine made when the picture was being taken – like music to my ears.

“Turn to the side dear,” she instructed. “Bend your knees some.”

Turn to left, right, gee all we needed was me holding some board with my name on it and we have a mug shot.

Every year for the rest of my life I will have to do this because I am woman.

I wondered if men have to go through something similar? Yes prostate gland checks they endure, but do men have to submit to a machine that squeezes their testicles sideways and top to bottom in a way that make them feel like pancakes?

Speaking of which, my breasts could have used a pat of butter and some whipped cream, and maple syrup by the end of the procedure. I re-gowned and slowly walked to the locker room.
“Don’t put your clothes on yet, honey,” the technician said. “The doctor will review your results and if I made a mistake you may have to have it done again.”
Great !!! More torture in the name of cancer prevention.  I bet a man invented that boob presser machine.

Take a wrench and twist my nipples off why don’t you? Saute me, make a patty melt!

Peta ad- which while it promotes kindness to animals, does not look very kind to women.

The waiting room had two more patients awaiting slaughter when I sat back down.  Each woman  had this look of dread as they flipped through the predictable periodical selections. Good Housekeeping, Parent Magazine, In Style, People, US.

Who buys this stuff?

Of course every woman wants to read the latest on Lindsey Lohan  and know exactly how to make the perfect autumn wreath made of cloves before she gets sliced and diced.

You never go to a waiting room for women and see Money magazine, Fortune, Wired or the Economist.

I just had a mammogram and damn-it I need to read a magazine to forget what just happened to me in that torture chamber they call a doctor’s office…Is there a recipe in that magazine for pressed Afrocity breast with braised leeks?

Oops my name was called, the doctor wanted to see me.  Ah, great it was a he.

“Your breasts look great!”  the doctor said with this big smile that I wanted to slap off his face. ” …No lumps, you obviously work out…” He went on about the digital technology of the photographs, and on, and on….and on.

Getting serious for a moment, I thought of my mother.  She only had one mammogram in her entire life and that was after she fell on her breast at the age of 54.  Later bloody discharge was noticed and she went for two months in fear until a neighbor took her to a free clinic.  All was well, she had just injured some tissue.  Her mammogram should no signs of cancer. She never went back again, lived to be 68- cancer free but killed by another misogynistic woman claiming disease- high blood pressure- breast cancer’s silent relative.

Explaining to the doctor that I once had a benign cyst, found by ultrasound some years ago,  I began to let go of the sarcasm and grasp the reality my good fortune.  My career allows me to have health insurance- reliable health insurance.  This doctor was of my own choosing. The medical technology is state of the art.  My hospital ranks among the best in the nation according to U.S. News and World Reports.

“No sign of any cysts now.” he assured.

Looking at the cloud like  images of  my breasts,  I could see no imperfections but I needed to be sure- really sure. “Are you positive because at the time it was rather large about 2 centimeters and they never aspirated it-“

“No you are fine,” he again assured me.” Keep doing your self exams…see you next year.”

I nodded “See you next year. Thank you.”

My soft clothes were so much more comfortable that that Japanese styled wrap gown. I had even brought my own deodorant and even though the med-tech told me they would supply me with some, I was glad to have my own.   Ah, clothes on, no more perspiration, my dignity as a woman was restored or so I thought.
My mammogram was over but the pesky anti-Bush protest was not. Patience Afrocity, your breasts just survived a medical industry made steamroller, you can do it. Moonbat screeching surrounded me. Come on Afrocity there is only about 100 of them …
“Tax the rich motherfuckers”
“IRAQ WAS A FUCKING LIE”
“INDICT BUSH, FUCK SARAH PALIN, FUCK MICHELLE BACHMAN, FUCK MEG WHITMAN”

Gee that’s a lot of fucking. For an anti-Bush rally this was shaping up to be more of an anti-conservative women rally. Bush was just a front for women bashing and many of the protesters were taking part in it… Sad.

Before I went home, the pain from the mammogram worsened.  A big contributor was the large bag of groceries I had picked up along my way.  Not a good idea Afrocity.  Wobbling down the sidewalk, two men in front of me were oblivious of my swift walking breast hurting self.  Seeing that they would not move for me, I slowed behind them and listened to their conversation.

It was about a typical male subject- women and sex.   One man was younger than the older who was about 50- something.

“I tell you,”  the older man said to the younger. “there is nothing better than a pretty woman who cannot speak English.”

My feet stopped walking, I needed a rest from the grocery bag and the sexism. No longer wanting to share aura space with someone who would make such a cruel comment, I let the two men walk a half block in front of me.

His moronic implication was simple:  A non English speaking woman is nothing.  Only there for his consumption. Just use her and like meat she would not be able to talk back in way that her needs would be understood or met.

Those words almost hurt more than my mammogram.

My arms rested, I began to carry on. The men were not  too far ahead of me. Every thought of his misogyny made me want to catch up to them even more.

Hmmm,  a bag full of groceries, painful breasts,  and two meat-heads in plain sight.   Dr. Afrocity Lecter was in the mood for a nice bottle of Chianti and some fava beans.  She walked ever so slowly and quietly…little were they aware of her cannibalistic presence. …

Obama Voter Autopsy Results Are In: Death by Kool Aid September 23, 2010

Filed under: Obamabots — afrocity @ 10:14 AM
Tags: , ,

As a traditionalist, I have an inherent distrust for movements. I take them on the case by case basis.  This goes for the Obama movement as well as the Tea Party movement.  I am a conservative but I look at candidates on the case by case basis.   Cautiously, I weigh all of the pros and cons, check out the reviews.  Much like when I purchased my new blu-ray player several weeks ago.  Finally, Afrocity is with the high-def movement…but it took a while.  Like a true skeptic, I comb Consumer Reports, ask for the opinions of friends, go to Best Buy and look at their ratings.  Even to myself it is frustrating. Just buy the damn thing already it’s only a television.  It’s only  a restaurant- put down the stupid Zagat’s and let’s go.  From my beginnings.  I hated wasting my time or money on anything.   During my wee years, I was reading an Archie comic book.  On the back, there were advertisements for gags of all sorts.  Disappearing ink, itching powder, X-ray vision glasses,  fake poo,  and the best of all… Sea Monkeys.

My young friends had all tried the other gags. The fake poo was not that exciting and the disappearing ink while funny at first just made someone want to kick your ass for getting their blouse wet… but Sea Monkeys looked great.  We all decided that we would buy a kit. I could have my own little family!

Hours of enjoyment would be spent watching my little Sea Monkey family in their aquatic home. I could watch momma monkey put on lipstick.  We could play patty cake through the plastic tank. Opponents of the Sea Monkey venture were my mother and grandmother.

“Those things are not what they say they are Afrocity,”  warned my mother. “Your brother had some of those and-“

“I WANT MY SEA MONKEY FAMILY!!!!”

“Ok..it’s your allowance.”

As my first mail-order endeavor, I got to walk to the currency exchange and purchase a money order for $3.95 , stick it in an envelope, lick the back of a postage stamp, and skip to the mailbox.  My address was on the money order, not my mother’s- MINE.

This was my little investment.  My real family is on welfare and dysfunctional but my Sea Monkey family will have it going on- dishwasher- Tv dinners every night.

Since at least 500 B.C., I waited for the UPS man and it was agonizing.

“Is it here yet?”  I asked mother bursting in from school.

She would shake her head.

My entire evening was ruined if that package with my mail order family was not there  -even the cartoons would not cheer me up.  Obsessed with the Sea Monkeys, I twitched all day in school just wondering if the package had arrived.  Can you imagine if I had a cell phone?  I would have driven my mother crazy with text messages.

“DID U GET MY PCKAGE?”

Of course my little sea family did arrive and predictably,  it was one of the most disappointing purchases I have ever made in my life.

There was a plastic tank and a packet of powder which were the Sea Monkey eggs.  “Instant Sea Monkeys”  read the label.  According to the instructions I dumped the powder of eggs into the water filled tank and waited, and waited, and waited for Godot with fins.   There were days that I would watch that tank for hours waiting for this large mermaid like family to appear…nothing…I was a sucker.  My friends were also sucked for their Sea Monkey families were AWOL as well.

Minimal humiliation was sparked by mother’s mocking remarks:  “Wow they are huge,”  she exaggerated watching me watch the empty cheaply made tank. “Look they are watching cartoons on the TV and playing “Go fish”.

Like most small children I did not want to admit that mother was right.  As badly as I wanted to throw out the stupid tank, I just let it sit there.  With the passing of weeks, I was largely over the matter  and moved on to other things but mother decided to give me a second chance at sea life.  One day after school, my Sea Monkey tank had transformed into a huge bowl with three goldfish.  They were swimming around and alive.  Rock and little fake plants and little pink houses for them.  Glee was what I felt. Glee that had been robbed by the Sea Monkey suddenly returned tenfold.

“Where did these come from ?” I asked excitedly. “Are they mine?”

“Those are the Sea Monkey’s they changed just like the comic book said they would while you were at school,” she lied. “Too bad you were not here to see them change. Oh, the tank rumbled and shook and it got to small for them so I had to get another.”

“No they did not,”  I laughed.  I did not care that she was teasing me. My goldfish were better than stupid Sea Monkeys any day”

Lesson learned?  If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is and do not buy the hype.   After being taken by the Sea Monkey scam, I always  make certain that anything I invest my time or money in is solid and seaworthy before I jump on board.

That also goes for Sea Monkey families in the White House and my precious vote.  Oh look at the cute little African American family playing in the Oval Office- they promise to deliver change and hope. OOPS- disclaimer-  I am not implying that the Obama’s are monkeys as in racially derogatory terms.  I am comparing my Sea Monkey experience with that of Americans who voted for this perfect Utopian post racial presidency.   Obama promised that our lives will be fundamentally different.  He gave his supporters drinks of  Kool Aid and campaigned a hole in their heads.

Case in point, this Obama supporter:

Aw, golly arugula!  Somebody’s  Sea Monkey did not turn into a goldfish- and it was supposed to come with a cushy job and unicorns too.  To make matters even more pathetic, in a move as old as history itself,  the fooled went back to the fooler for answers and got more change, hope and Kool Aid.

Sure, Barry we still cool.

Who has grounds for concern or criticism of Obama, aka “the anointed one” when he flashes that million dollar man march smile?

Maybe I am out of the norm here, but do you see anything about this woman’s statement that is remotely huge toothy smile worthy?  His grin… frankly, would have insulted me and I would have told him so.  More surprising was the acceptance of his answers to these people by many on the left.

So she is a plant now? Because???? She is African American and not falling over at Obama’s feet?

Sure keep drinking whether that is tea or Kool Aid.

Keep your minds open. Democrats or Republicans did not get us where we are today.  Stupidity did.

It is never easy to reconcile a bad decision but it is even harder to do so if your repeat that decision again and again and again.   You cannot really blame the candidate.  You can’t hunt him down.

You can’t whine ” you promised me the moon on steroids and all I got was this lousy Obama dress”  Correction: this VERY lousy Obama dress.

Obama did not make you pull the lever and vote for phony change. You did.

Next time before you attend a rally with millions of star struck potential voters and Greek temples made of Styrofoam don’t drink…THINK.

“Palinator”: The Sarah – O’Donnell Chronicles September 16, 2010

If anything has been invented by a politically involved woman during the last two years it has been the secret to truly derailing the most vile and senseless criticism.

Criticism that would make most of us crawl in bed with some Essie nail polish and a flashlight.

What is that secret you ask?

One simple  little word that would make a terrific  name for a MAC lipstick color…Success!

Kill em with kindness is the old girl’s way of dealing with adversaries.

Murder them with success is the new and improved way.

No one tromped the critics on the left or right better than Sarah the RINO killing Palinator.  One endorsement from Palin Power could put you on the political map- especially if you are a true conservative woman.

Just ask Christine O’Donnell (R-DE) or Nikki Haley (R-SC).

The Palinator takes a main stream media beating and keeps on ticking. But only very recently would everyone come to respect and possibly fear the woman they once referred to as a pig with lipstick.

On November 4th, 2008,  the entire nation including yours truly  did not exactly know what would happen to the woman who almost was the United States Vice President.

Well some of us did not know but others….

“Take your all of your whores back home John Mc-lame- especially Sarah Palin!”  yelled a young twenty-something man, lacking in couth and deodorant . The setting was a medium north side café in Chicago.  I was eating a corned beef and Swiss sandwich which was normally my favorite but the memory of the night before were still plaguing my brain.

The Obamabots were dancing in the streets and judging from the number of “walk of shamers ”  I espied  Wednesday morning, they had been dancing in the sheets as well. Nothing like Kool Aid  filled diaphragms to quench your political thirst.  Please do not pro-create Obamabots, please after Obama gets done with us, there won’t be enough of other people’s money for you liberals to spend.

Yes, Afrocity was a bitter little pill. Correction-  Afrocity was a entire bottle of bitter little pills.

How could America be sooooo stupid?

Numb. Just numb.  That is the only way I can describe my feelings on that day. Let’s not even get into the whole Afrocity eight years previous to that day would have been dancing over a Democrat presidential win.  Oh, God this means at least four years with the Hope and Change BS and historic moment hype.

How will I get through this…I am too old to teach English in Japan.

Pinch me please.

Is it just my imagination or was the DNC just hijacked by Jolt Cola sucking millennials, women–oops I am sorry- feminists– who love being kicked in the butt by donkeys,  nutty bomb making professors and aging hippies suffering from white guilt?

Is this a nightmare?

No.

Obama won fair and…  well nevermind.

The night before was a blur but it did happen.

Hazy images of  John McCain saying he lost came to my recall center.   I remembered Sarah that night too.

As she stood next to her older and battered running mate,  Sarah seemed sad and  compassionate.  McCain was about to be done- at least on the executive branch front.   He gave his concession speech- which was one of the best and most gracious presidential election concession speeches I have ever heard in my lifetime.  There was no doubt that Sarah’s  eyes had that glassy fighting back tears appearance- something had quieted her spirit – but it was to be only for a moment.

Then John McCain gave the pitbull with lipstick a well deserved bone:

From John McCain’s Concession Speech – November 4, 2008

I am also — I am also, of course, very thankful to Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the best campaigners I’ve ever seen … one of the best campaigners I have ever seen, and an impressive new voice in our party for reform and the principles that have always been our greatest strength … her husband, Todd, and their five beautiful children … for their tireless dedication to our cause, and the courage and grace they showed in the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign.

We can all look forward with great interest to her future service to Alaska, the Republican Party and our country.

After several more paragraphs, McCain concluded his speech. I watched Sarah Palin wave her hand at the Arizona crowd and disappear.  Where is she going ?  She made politics exciting again- now she is leaving.  Was McCain correct in his assessment of  the woman from Alaska?  Would she really want to come back after what the media did to her?  Maybe a better question would be would they let Sarah come back?

“God I was so sick of hearing Palin’s annoying voice,”  said one woman watching the cafe television. “She was so…provincial…and stupid. What a dumb woman.”

Laughter from her booth mates.  They were annoying me on so many punishable by death levels.  Mustard on fries, greasy hair and leftover Obama paraphernalia on their coats.   And very near the end when they went to the cashier to pay for their food, one enlightened idiot declared: “Power to the socialists. Obama rules Fuck yeah!”

It was gonna be a long, long four years.

But I was being selfish.  If it was bad for me, what was Sarah Palin going through? As if having to give up a killer RNC paid for wardrobe was agonizing enough for any woman (Oh those red peep-toe  Biden debate shoes- be merciful and let her keep those.)

…Sarah was accused of  serving as spare parts Hillary Clinton- estrogen substitute- RNC ticket fluff who was not intellectually grounded enough to read magazines like Ms. and Mother Jones (snicker). Palin’s family was also overwhelmingly scrutinized and skewered with no mercy.  She would have to be crazy to want to ever leave Alaska again.

But really I could not tell what Sarah Palin was thinking.

Now, nearly two years later…I know exactly what Sarah was thinking.

The Palinator within her, was struck by the limitations of her running mate and the Republican establishment.

She took meticulous mental notes on the inside of her mind’s palm.

Like a digital screen words were darting across her field of vision.   Before she walked off the stage with John McCain, she scanned the crowd and said to herself in true Palinator fashion:

I’LL BE BACK.

From this article in the NY Daily News:

Sarah Palin becomes GOP power broker, endorses winning Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell

BY Aliyah ShahidSeptember 15th, 2010

One thing has become abundantly clear from Tuesday night’s primaries: Sarah Palin’s endorsements matter.

Palin and Tea Party-backed conservative Christine O’Donnell pulled off a stunning upset over nine-term Rep. Mike Castle in the Republican Senate primary in Delaware 53% to 47%.

O’Donnell gave a nod to the former Alaska governor during her victory speech on Tuesday night.

“Thank you, Gov. Palin, for your endorsement,” the Tea Party candidate said. “Because she got behind us war-weary folks, and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it.”

O’Donnell wasn’t Palin’s only win on Tuesday. In Wisconsin, Palin-backed Sean Duffy — an ex-district attorney and castmate in MTV’s “The Real World” — handily won the Republican primary Tuesday for a U.S. House seat.

And in New York, Michael Grimm defeated his opponent in the Republican primary for a House seat representing Staten Island. And in New Hampshire’s Republican Senate primary, Kelly Ayotte, the state’s attorney general (who is backed by Palin) narrowly won against Tea Party backed Ovide Lamontagne in a multi-candidate race.

And then there are other winning candidates, particularly in the Tea Party, that Palin has endorsed this election season — demonstrating her ability to catapult nobodies into virtual stardom. There’s Joe Miller in Alaska, Rand Paul in Kentucky, and Nikki Haley in South Carolina…

With her decision to step down as Alaska’s leave no caribou behind governor,  Sarah exchanged her hunting book for Facebook and a Fox News commentator gig.  She came back armed with extended wear lipstick to kick some serious RINO butt and get the Republican party back to sowing its conservative oats again.

Kill em’ with success- it works.

Some of Palin’s successes are other’s headaches. The O’Donnell victory in Deleware challenges the Republicans to come to terms with contradictions in their own party.  Sarah is anti-establishment no matter what side of the political spectrum you are on. Yesterday on the O’Reilly Factor, Sarah sat quietly through one of Bill’s mini-lectures.  If you recall the events following Christine O’Donnell’s win,  Karl Rove- also known as  “The Architect”   among the GOP was not too happy about what the Tea Party was building in Delaware.  He made that very clear on the Hannity show Tuesday night when he delivered what probably was one of the more “skeptical”  assessments of O’Donnell.   By mid-morning Wednesday, there were calls out for Rove’s hide.  OReilly being O’Reilly just had to push Sarah on the Rove issue but she quickly dismissed Bill-O’s argument:

Boy she dropped kicked that argument like O-Ren Ishii cut off Boss Tanaka’s head in Kill Bill Volume I

Now if any of you RINO Republicans has anything to say…Now is the efffing time!!!

Yep, Sarah said she will be back and like a good politician she kept her promise to us and ironically John McCain who she also helped in his own Arizona senatorial re- election.

And the mainstream media said Michelle Obama would be the one to watch…

Well possibly so…That is if watching vegetables grow in the White House garden is more your cup of feminist speed…  Afrocity prefers to skip the arugula and take her tea with two lumps of Palinator- you betcha!

Political Weight Watchers: The GOP’s Liquid Detox Diet September 15, 2010

Through numerous observations, I am continually reminded of the Democratic Party’s resistance to self-examination.  So it was not surprising to see the liberal media outlets ignoring the obviously anemic future of their own party and pressing their noses against the window of the Republican Party during last night’s mega primary races.

With overzealous  determination, liberals were all over Christine O’Donnell’s victory in the Delaware Republican Primary over 40 year GOP veteran Mike Castle.  Steeped in controversy and an impetus for debate within the GOP, O’Donnell is a Tea Party candidate, – a “real conservative” so to speak –backed by Sarah Palin.   Worthy of eliciting overload in any Republican demise lover’s salivary glands,  O’Donnell’s win was comprehensible to liberals as a serious rupture in the GOP.  You should have seen how many anti-Republican sites ran this clip of Karl Rove and Sean Hannity debating the O’Donnell win.

(Afrocity with a whip and lion tamer’s chair) Down, jackasses, down…  But yo know,  in this case who could blame the Democrats?  If my political party sucked and our president was as ineffective as Barack Obama,  I would watch someone else on TV too.   Currently, I am sure that if you are a Democrat the GOP is more exciting than watching a slow sinking ship full of Obamabots in denial- particularly if you are actually on the ship.

So go ahead Democrats! Enjoy the show liberals, pull up a beanbag and take a load off.  Such drama is good for the political thought lovers soul and should teach our liberal audience a few lessons about Republicans.  Our history that Democrats and possibly many Republicans have seemed to forgotten.

Lessons that invalidates any stereotypes which demonizes Republicans as religiously fanatical homophobic racists who hate helping the impoverished.  When it comes the party diversity, the Democrats claims lie in race, ethnicity, gender or  sexual orientation.  Republicans on the other hand seek to find an appropriate balance of diversity within levels of conservatism.  We are all Americans regardless of our underlying identities.   We are not colors or sexual preferences.

Liberals wrongly view conservatives as a monolith.

We all must sleep with Bibles under our pillows and when the linen cases come off, they double as headgear for our KKK meetings.   Not so.  The logic of this meme is not intuitive or apparent except that it serves as a tool for the left to marginalize conservatives much like they marginalize identity groups within their own party.  You are black therefore you must need us.  While looking at the video above,  I laughed at some of the comments from liberals such as this one:

If teabaggers are so pro-minority, why aren’t they going into the inner-cities and making a push to register minority voters? Short answer, they’re scared to death of minority voters and are doing all they can to re-energize white, christian, conservative voters. If a couple minority voters (who may or not be plants) happen to wonder into their camp, of course they’ll welcome them, as long as they don’t move in next door or marry their daughters.

Now who is the cloistered racist one?  My father resides in Chicago’s “inner-city”  ummm, somehow he managed to register himself to vote like many “minorities”  without the help of ACORN. But here again is prevailing liberal thought that Republicans are all anti-minority.  We are all  for the rich, sheltered in our timeshares and far, far, far right with no middle class.  The liberal media perpetuates such myths and President Obama loves to demonstrate that “B” is for bashing and blaming and Boehner:

Ah, class warfare… the staple diet of liberals.  But this is all changing as things heats up in the countdown to November.   The Republican Party is struggling to get the right brew and  has been on a serious liquid detox diet.

Now everyone hates to diets especially detox diets.  I am on one myself.   No sugar, no salt…green tea, soy milk,  flax seed, omega 3, – all stuff that is good for me….and I hate it but I have to do what’s best for my body and not my taste buds. The Republican Party is going through the same thing — a change for the better.

Why do we diet?  because we want to see our old, younger selves again whether we were skinnier, or more active, more mentally alert.  The Republican Party had become weighted down with  junk in it’s  collective truck. Time to purge some floaters.

No question, the Delaware primary race was ugly.  One could point out occasional traces of sexism against Christine O’Donnell but I would say that this race was not about man against woman.  It was about the establishment versus grassroots true conservationism or the politician versus the common man- correction common woman.  In addition to campaign bludgeoning which is considered standard fare for any political competition this race harbored a nastier element not normally witnessed in Republican primaries.   One candidate was accused of being gay while another‘s finances were trotted out to reveal an IRS tax lien and pending mortgage foreclosure.  In defense of O’Donnell, there are a lot of people facing home foreclosure nowadays so perhaps it was not too smart of Mike Castle to expose O’Donnell’s financial situation as  a weakness.  Nevertheless, it was elephant eat elephant, or should I say elephant eat RINO in Delaware.

Much of the advice from Tea Partiers went unheard by the GOP establishment- especially the RINO virus carriers. Payback is not tea and sympathy…It’s a bitch.

Tea Party Claims Big Win

Upstart Candidate Beats GOP-Backed Congressman in Delaware Senate Primary

By PETER WALLSTEN And NEIL KING JR.

September 15, 2010

Long-shot U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell of Delaware rode tea-party momentum Tuesday to the most unexpected upset of a tumultuous political year, soundly defeating Republican Party fixture Mike Castle in a bruising primary.

The results showed again that conservative voters, many of them angry at federal spending by both parties and energized by the tea-party movement, have become mobilized even in one of the nation’s most Democratic-leaning states…

The Delaware results were widely viewed as the most meaningful of the day. With all precincts reporting, Ms. O’Donnell had 53.1% of the vote to Mr. Castle’s 46.9%.

Mr. Castle, a sitting congressman, is one of the most liberal Republicans in the House.

So keep on rubber necking Democrats. My cautionary note to you involves the dangers of not keeping your eyes on the road especially when your vision is impaired with campaign politics and your ears are deaf to public opinion.  watch where you are going—I think you passed up the town of “victory”  about 18 months back.
