Quote of the Week (Early Contender)


"'But your dad's a science teacher,' (McCain Campaign Manager Steve) Schmidt objected. 'Yes.' 'Then you know that science proves evolution,' added Schmidt. 'Parts of evolution,' I said. 'But I believe that God created us and also that He can create an evolutionary process that allows species to change and adapt.' Schmidt winced and raised his eyebrows. In the dim light, his sunglasses shifted atop his head. I had just dared to mention the C-word: creationism. But I felt I was on solid factual ground."

-- From Going Rogue, Sarah Palin's memoir, which hits book stores tomorrow

Anybody wanna make the first "C-word" joke?

Chez, props to you for having the most batshit-crazy-looking pictures of female politicians; between your shots of that crazy Bachmann lady and Palin, right-wing women have never looked so unhinged!

I cunt believe people people will actually buy her book.

I'd like to maroon Sarah Palin on a polar bear infested ice floe and shove it c-word.

Except that her absolutist superstition (particularly the peculiar American protestant Dispensationalist version of it) does not permit her to accept "parts of evolution."

Either the bible is "god's word" -- every single bit of it, completely, infallibly -- or it is not. If not, then the belief structure it is used to validate is meaningless.

If it is, then poor Sarah is a filthy blasphemer, a liar, and a sinner, and her rotten soul will burn for eternity in a lake of fire with the rest of the damned.

Choose wisely, twerp.

Wonder if this was when Steve Schmidt had his first, "oh my God, what have we wrought" moment?

HEAR?

Yeah...that isn't creationism. She basically just espoused the Roman Catholic Church's position on evolution, which among her supporters, should place her up around the Elders of Zion in the terms of freaking out about....

I'm actually reading now and I couldn't put this one down. It now rests in the shed next to my copy of Love Gun.
It's a known fact that this nation was built upon Christ-centered principles. One of those principles is the fact that the Lord Almighty rose his palms and with a quick flick of both index fingers, created this beautiful planet with what we now have called Life As We Know It.
A little boy in church group named Peter asked me, "Mr. White, did the Lord Almighty also create evil? Why is there so much evil in the world today?"
I replied, "Little Peter, the Lord did not create evil -- that would be Adam's homosexual secular uncle, Steve, who cohabitated with Gary." Little Peter said he never heard that fact. I told Little Peter to try to read between the lines in his Bible. The conversation was cut short when Delores pulled me out of the room to tell me that the damage from the drink gets me going like that. Maybe my bride is right, but I stand by my word and Sarah stands by her word that God created us. We did not come from apes like all you seculars scream about. It's just not true. But, if y'all want to teach this garbage in our gov't schools, we need to teach Creationism and Intelligent Design right along with it so that these indoctrinated children can make a choice. You know "CHOICE." Y'all scream about choice when it comes to terminating babies, but y'all don't want "CHOICE" when it comes to schools. I mean, that's hypocrisy right there, my liberal friends.
Anyway, I recommend all of you SPs go out and at least try to read Sarah's new book.

Chez said...

This is why I love you, Bill. God bless.

Vermillion said...

Yeah I'm with Suzy.

Hear?

Please tell me that is in the actual book. PLEASE.

I am not going to buy it, I am just going to print that quote out, put it under my pillow, and dream so many dreams of the day she finally disappears.

Or ends up in a sex tape.

What? I got priorities, man.

Chez said...

To be honest, although I cut and pasted the quote, I can't tell if the typo was actually in the book. I'm going to assume it's not and change it. Palin's stupid, but her publisher I have to assume is at least professional.

meaning: rests in the outhouse next to a copy of Hustler magazine.

One's teaching fact (as in, can be proven with hard evidence), and one's giving women power over their own bodies. How are these two even comparable? People can believe whatever they want to believe--what is taught in schools isn't going to change that (hello, People Who Still Deny The Holocaust Actually Happened). But whether or not a baby comes to term? You can't "un-think" or "un-will" a pregnancy away.

Dude...they published a Sarah Palin book.

C'mon, anon 10:22...I'm pretty sure Bill has indoor plumbing. And he strikes me as a Penthouse man, not Hustler.

em:

First, Bill White is theater, not a serious commenter. Second, when wingnuts talk about school choice, they're not referring to curriculum options, but to the fantasy that parents should be able to get the government to pay tuition for their children to go to "Christian" schools. In reality of course, it is the private SCHOOLS who get to choose who attends, not the parents.
