Don't Buy The Pooched Rat.

In the last 24 hours, I've seen the criticism of Gov. Sarah Palin turn from legitimate commentary into outright slander and misogyny.

What if the McCain operation wants to stoke the negatively misogynistic themes we're seeing this weekend?

I admit it's attractive, it tastes real good because of all the fuckings we've gotten in the last 8 years, and it's really satisfying - but it's absolutely horrible for the health of our movement.

If I was Republican dirty tricks operative, I'd be grinning and rubbing the slime between my palms right now.

Political dirty tricks are nasty, but some of the worst are the ones buried by your own side in order to make the finders look like complete assholes.

Exactly, and thanks. Erin thanks you, too.

But the game has moved on. The hurricane Gustav is cat 4 now, and CNN has been all over Nagin's evacuation. According to digby, there's talk of turning the 'puke convention into a telethon-type thing. I hope like crazy that Obama has already been on the phone with Nagin. No photo op, but at the very least, an ass covering. McCain's already in the headlines "monitoring" the situation. Can you say "Operation Katrina Redemption?" The narrative can go either way at this point. I hope Obama's on it.

Operation Katrina Redemption: because most of the people Republicans didn't care about never came back.
