American Socialist groups says President Obama is NOT a Socialist! Sarah Palin on the other hand.....

Socialism has become a buzzword in politics lately, a word that has been thrown about by people whose political knowledge goes no further than reading Fox News headlines on their phones. Tea Partiers in particularly are especially guilty of dropping the 's-bomb', especially when used to describe Pres. Obama.

 In an interview, Frank Llewellyn, the director of the DSA, and Billy Wharton, co-chair of the Socialist Party USA, both strongly refute the popular idea that Obama is a socialist.

"We didn't see a great victory with the election of Barack Obama," Wharton says, " and we certainly didn't see our agenda move from the streets to the White House."

 Llewellyn also claims that the socialist label definitely didn't fit Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.

 "To be honest, the most socialist candidate in the 2008 election was Sarah Palin."
Of course, socialists themselves beg to differ.

When she was governor of Alaska, Palin was vocally proud of the fact that her state slapped a windfall profits tax on oil companies operating on Alaskan soil and distributed the revenue directly to Alaskans themselves. This, says Llewellyn, is a thoroughly-socialist act, because it uses redistributive actions to reduce inequality in society.

 Palin once attempted to defend her actions, stating that it was not socialism because the people of Alaska owned the resources that the oil companies were extracting.

 Of course, no one bothered to point out to Mrs. Palin that her defense constitutes a textbook argument for socialism.

I am sorry, but it took me almost five minutes to stop chuckling about this long enough to write this post.  This is just too perfect!

You simply cannot make this kind of thing up, and it happens to Sarah Palin constantly! 

Once again I certainly hope that SOMEBODY beings this information to those teabaggers who are so unbelievably ill informed as to believe that Sarah Palin is the epitome of the capitalist ideal and that President Obama is the second coming of Karl Marx.


  1. That pic of Palin there is classic! Keep it up Gryphen.

  2. I noticed that you removed the post that had my previous comment attached. I hope you grabbed that Matthews/Maher link before ditching it. That clip is one Bill's best! In case you didn't, here it is again.

    Palin is back in Canada again tonight. Whoring herself in Hamilton for $100K giving a "family values" speech.

    She washed her hands at customs so she may have to ad lib her speech.

  4. This is absolutely brilliant, Gryphen!!! Can I link it to my blog? Please!!!

  5. Of course Kay. Link away!

    I am all about the sharing.

    Yes, the red leather jacket is part of the RNC clothes that were "returned" after the campaign....evidently straight to Palin's closet.

    Excellent pic, BTW.

    I consider myself somewhat of socialist and it's always bugged me when the anti-obama crowd lays that label on him.

    the man is not a socialist. if he was, he would have never even won the primary.

    those who claim obama is a socialist demonstrate that they have no understanding of how things work here. if you don't pass the test from those who really run things, you'll never get anywhere near the whitehouse. kucinich is a great example. love the man, love his policies, but the people in power would off him if it looked like he was getting somewhere nationally. it's just the way it is.

    oh yeah love the pic gryphen - she looks seriously constipated. not enough greens to push out that moose.

    Random Sarah stuff:

    What ever happened in the trial of the kid who hacked into her e-mail? Wasn't she subpoenaed and needed to testify under oarth?

    Life & Style reported that last week that someone with Levi said his book was coming soon. Know anything about that?

    Is it just that jackets she has worn recently or did she have some chesticle work done as well?

    Check out Rachel's Who Dat? segment from last Friday (about the SRLC in NO). Big huge wink and smile right at the camera at the 5" mark when she mentioned Palin and babies. Any update on babygate and the MSN? She seemed to indicate that she knows about that...

    Thanks !

    Yep, another RNC item she had stashed in the belly of the plane. All donated to charity. Like the number she wore on Oprah. It is my understanding red is the color used as a statement for revolution. If something did break out that coward would hightail it back to Ak in a heartbeat. All the while, babbling she had nothing to do with it. Just more picking on her.

    Response to Anon 3:51 Palin’s ugly a$$ picture.

    What do want to see, the fake a$$ picture of the dimwit in her touched up running outfit or the original untouched running outfit picture? There is nothing wrong with the picture Gryphen used.

    Bottom line, Sarah’s pictures, politics and education is all smoke and mirrors when it comes to the Wasilla Hill Billy. For a person people consider pretty, Sarah sure takes some ugly a$$ pictures like the one above.

    Palin is really an unattractive person. Over made-up, aging and hard-edged, with some of the nastiest expressions on her face. It's really true that a person's character starts to show in the face by the time they're in their 40's. A lifetime of being petty, vindictive, intellectually incurious, and vain is well-writen on her face. Hard to believe anyone finds her genuinely attractive as person, physically or character-wise.

    Yes. She's a socialist, but she's hypocritical about that, too. No big surprise, since hypocrisy is her middle name.

    Bwahahahaaaahaha! I wish the baggers would get this quote. I love it!

  14. I never thought of ester as beautiful. That would have to come from the inside. She looked youthful once. But that is no more.
    Real beauty shines it is something genuine. She never had it she never will. But hey she purloined a snazzy coat!

    An opportunist will plow through any open door and get up saying he/ she was just worshiping the floor we walk on.

    A socialist is guided by principles.

    Sarah was just buying votes.

    She is just a fraud.

    The red coat is not from the campaign. I saw that one in a picture that was taken somewhere before she was tapped for the VP schtick. The red coat from the campaign looked like it was made from a wool and was a different style. Although, I do believe she wore this coat too at that time after the broohaha over the cost of the RNC clothes.

    Ron Paul also came out and said Obama was not a socialist. He then went on to call him a corporatist.

  18. While the Teabaggers steeped themselves in anti-Obama rhetoric, Palin invaded our socialist nation and spoke in Hamilton for a dodgy "charity." Here is an early report:

    I was going to go and protest. Decided not to waste gas on that gas bag.

  19. In my view Obama is a corporatist and ester is an opportunist. The rest of us are just sticktoutists.

    I saw a post that said that Sarah will be in Canada tonight giving a speech. With her traveling so much, I wonder who is taking care of her special needs child that she claims to adore so much? She has a special way of showing love for her special needs child--she's not around.

    Does anyone know if she is still accepting donations for her legal fund so she can pay Van Flea for his services? You would figure with all of the money she has made that she could afford to pay for her attorney.

    for the boob that thinks the red jacket is not from the RNC - please look at the pictures. The wrinkles are identical.

    as far as this quote from above:
    "Look Gryphen, I hate Palin as much as anybody but putting up pictures of her at her worst is not doing the job. The f---ing bitch is simply beautiful and none of the pictures look all that bad."

    good lord, you must have never seen a beautiful person, because SP is average librarian look at best and can not be described as beautiful. Her plastic surgery did nothing for her, except make her look older and weird.

    I was glad to see she lost the bumpit. The rat must have moved somewhere else to live.

    Great picture of Grandma Sarah! OR shall I say Grandma Socialist Sarah?

    One thing that we all should have learned from the Bush era was that when a Bushy starts calling names, they are usually doing so to cover their own asses. Very Orwellian.

    Where was Trig when Grandma was on tour?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
