Palin: Idiot or Slave to Talking Points?

Did you see the "debate" tonight between Sarah "I only say what's on my note cards" Palin and Joe "I'm embarrassed to be on the same stage as that woman" Biden? Yeah, then you know what I mean.

On an unrelated note, I thought I'd share this definition of Christianity:

The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie
who was his own father
can make you live forever
if you symbolically eat his flesh
and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master
so he can remove an evil force from your soul
that is present in humanity because a rib-woman
was convinced by a talking snake
to eat from a magical tree...


Sign me up for that SFnal craziness!

Chris

my friend and i were discussing the stretch in imagination it must take to believe the stories in the bible! wasn't there any way to fit the virgin birth into that definition??

I was in a meeting this summer with a pastor who's a serious critical thinker. And I said, "Y'know, a lot of people can't get behind your little polytheistic zombie cult." And he said, "Hey, it may be a polytheistic zombie cult, but it's our polytheistic zombie cult." Made me smile.

I was very disappointed in the moderator for not calling her on it when Palin said outright that she wasn't necessarily going to answer the questions, but rather was going to say "what Americans wanted to hear" or something like that. If I was the moderator (why doesn't anyone ever ask me to do this sort of thing? why???) I'd have said "Governor, I believe it's a strong possibility that Americans want to hear you answer the questions. Bitch!"

OK, maybe I'd have left off "bitch."

The McCain camp had already complained that the moderator was an Obama supporter, so she had to be on her toes. And yes, any moderator is going to support *some* candidate, but that was there complaint.

Thank you! I've seen that definition before, and just -- I swear -- two days ago I was trying to think of it and made a mental note to Google it, but then forgot to, and now I don't have to!
