WorldNUT Daily still beating a dead horse

According to World Nut Daily Democrat: Obama's grandma confirms Kenyan birth. They even have their followers speculating that he caused his Grandmother's accident

Have you heard what has happened to her now? She has a broken hip and is deathly ill. She sure looked fine to me when I saw her in that video. I do not put it past Obama to have caused this infirmity on his own grandma. We know that he has not appreciation or care of human life from his infanticide bills and this is no different. ~ Exposing and Bucking The System

In fact it is his MATERNAL (white) Grandmother, you know the one who is a United States citizen, who is ill.
"Senator Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has always been one of the most important people in his life," Gibbs said. "Along with his mother and his grandfather, she raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born until the moment he left for college. As he said at the Democratic convention, she poured everything she had into him." ~Washington Post

CNN Says -The Democratic senator was born in Hawaii, where he spent most of his childhood raised by his mother, a white American from Kansas. He barely knew his late father, a Kenyan economist from Kogelo.

From USA Today - Obama's grandfather had converted to Islam from Roman Catholicism and taken the name Hussein, Sarah Obama said, but his children had inherited only the name, not the religion. Each person should be able to choose how they worshipped, she said.

"In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents," she said. She, too, is a Christian.

Barack Obama has visited his Kenyan relatives three times in Kogelo, and his grandmother has gone to the U.S. twice. She says they are close, although they have to speak through an interpreter (apparently Granny doesn't speak English).

Sarah Obama was the second wife of the candidate's late grandfather, so is not his biological grandmother.

Does Palin think it's OK to terrorize women?

While most Americans are worried about how they are going to pay the bills Palin is enjoying a shopping spree.

The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

Jeez I could have paid off my house, bought a brand new car and had money left over for that amount of money. And the Republicans wonder why most people think they are out of touch with the majority of people in the United States.

But then when your candidate constantly puts her foot in her mouth over the simplest questions I guess you have to make sure it's well shod.

Her latest gaffe not knowing if someone who bombs an abortion clinic is a terrorist.

A simple YES! would have sufficed instead we got a song and dance routine which left you wondering if she really thinks it's OK to terrorize women who make decisions she disagrees with and murder the doctors who provide health care to them.

HT: Palin: 'I Don't Know' If Abortion Clinic Bombers Are Terrorists

My head hurts from all the stupidity

Ok, I did like Sarah Palin when McCain first choose her as his running mate. At first glance she seemed like someone I could relate to. A wife and MOTHER with a brain. Unfortunately like fish after a few days she started to SMELL. If I hear "You Betcha" one more time I think I will throw up. I can only hope that after November she will disappear back to the wilds of Alaska never to be heard of again. Funnily enough the Fundamentalist Christians that he hoped to woo with her nomination are opposed to her. Why because she is a woman and a MOTHER and how dare she work outside the home. Don't cha know she should be home changing diapers.

I won't be voting for the McCain & Palin ticket. McCain is way to scary and Palin doesn't have the political smarts needed for the job. While she may not just be 'eye candy' she certainly doesn't seem to have any concrete ideas of how to get us out of the economic mess we are in. In fact both McCain & Palin seem to suffer from a disconnect with reality.

While I am not entirely happy with Obama, especially his plans for universal pre-school. Let's fully fund K-12th grade and a university education first, then we can talk about funding programs (Head Start) that have already been shown to have no lasting effect. I am appalled at the smear tactics that Fundamentalist Christians are stooping to and their ridiculous claims of proof he wasn't born in Hawaii (which by the way is part of the United States).

Snopes.Com plainly shows why we shouldn't believe the nonsense about his birth certificate. Not to mention that if there was any validity to the nonsense HRC would have used it to insure that she was the Democratic nominee.
