The "American Idol" candidate
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Who is Roger Ebert describing here?
"American Idol" candidate. Consider. What defines an "American Idol" finalist? They're good-looking, work well on television, have a sunny personality, are fierce competitors, and so talented, why, they're darned near the real thing.
Did you think, "wow, that's the freshman Senator from Illinios to a tee?"

Did you review the thin resume of Barack Obama and think, "Ebert nails it"?

Well you'd be wrong. Nope - blinders firmly in place, he was talking about Sarah Palin.

PDS is rampant on the left.

My first thought was "what the hell does he think this is about?" And then I read this...
I want a vice president who is better than me, wiser, well-traveled, has met world leaders, who three months ago had an opinion on Iraq. Someone who doesn’t repeat bald-faced lies about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere. Someone who doesn’t appoint Alaskan politicians to "study" global warming, because, hello! It has been studied.
Because... hello... ?

Wow - way to go Ebert or whoever the hell you are. Thanks!

Ebert is definitely a lefty. Funny how unqualified he is to be presenting himself as some kind of expert and non partisan on politics.

You know, that description fits both of them to a tee.

Who is Roger Ebert describing here?
It’s scary how despite his attempts to knock Palin, he’s really knocking Obama even harder.
who three months ago had an opinion on Iraq
Who could forget Obama’s "the surge isn’t working, and I would never support it ever" opinion?
Someone who doesn’t repeat bald-faced lies about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere.
First off, I always thought the term was "bold-faced" - not "bald-faced." How can something be "bald-faced," anyway?

Second, Ebert might wanna check this out sometime.
because, hello!
Wow. Sorry, but speaking as a young adult, I’m annoyed when people my age go "hello!" and always have been.

Sheesh...Didn’t Roger Ebery die?

If not, maybe McCain winning in November will the the thing that does him in.

From the article
My theory is, anyone who wears glasses that look weird is telling me something I don’t want to know.
yep, it all comes down to glasses, yeah sure Ebert, sure ...(backing away)

And how can you be her age and never have gone to Europe?
Well...that settles that.

Ebert has been BDS for a long while, and now he’s doing his minor in PDS.

And his main claim to fame is...

Placing one thumb up, and one thumb down.

Now we know where they both were deposited, in his arse to stir the cranial juices before each movie review.

PDS is rampant on the left.
And ODS is rampant on the right. So what? The vitriol has been literally dripping from your lips for months, McQ.

At least you wingnuts are a little more direct. Like the Congressman the other day who called Obama "uppity."

Stay classy, Repubs.

Mk chooses an Ebert post to pop back in and call us wingnuts? Classic! All the other things that have been discussed over the last few days, and he chooses this topic? I think that says it all.

Why does the press treat Palin’s ascent as some sort of weirdness that must be analyzed, but an obscure senator’s ascent to rock-god status is celebrated?

Palin is a shallow, chirpy person with those vaguely alarming eyeglasses. Now her fans all want a pair. Remember back when women wore glasses that departed their ears in plastic swoops and swirls? My theory is, anyone who wears glasses that look weird is telling me something I don’t want to know.
Roger, have you looked at yourself in a flippin’ mirror of late? Stick to Russ Meyer boobie-flicks, whydontcha, and we will all be better off.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Rhode Island Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee has called vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin a "cocky wacko" and said her selection as John McCain’s running mate has energized supporters of Democrat Barack Obama.
Coming from the original "wacko", Palin should take this title with pride.

I assume that this Sun Times article is what you were trying to discuss
