More Nevada News!

Last night, the Heaths (Sarah Palin's parents) and the Palins (Todd's parents) stopped by the Clark County Republican Headquarters. It was quite the distraction. I'd make a few calls, and then get up to get my picture taken with them, then make more calls, etc.

As I write this, Governor Mitt Romney is stopping by to help with precinct walking.

Saturday, Mayor Giuliani will be there in the evening; I'll probably miss it, due to a social engagement.

And on Monday, Governor Palin will be appearing in Reno (and another Northern Nevada town I don't recall the name of), while McCain holds a rally here.

I know people are sick to death of getting nagged. But my job is to nag them; there's no other way to make sure that people vote, other than to remind them that it has to be done.

Well, best of luck. Missouri might be a better bet, though. :)

Did you ask Palin how much she enjoyed talking to Sarkozy?

Posted by: azmat hussain at November 1, 2008 09:00 PM

"Fool me once, shame on you." Familiar with that expression, Azmat?
The shame is on the pranksters, not the person that is skeptical, but non-offensive friendly, and engaging. Maybe the Sûreté should interview those Montreal clowns about that hack into his personal bank account.

Are you saying that their bank accounts were hacked by the likes of you?
non-offensive? more like clueless, you would think that one would get a clue when your biography is called _______ Palin.

You are nuttier than ever, Azmat. And no more comprehensible.

Why do wonderful women like Sarah Palin scare you so? Do her abilities to do so many things well make you feel inadequate since you can do nothing well? Is it because she loves America and would never do anything to harm her? Is it because she would never do anything to keep America from growing stronger even if she does not win on Tuesday? What makes you feel so impotent? Is it because you know that she is better than that empty suit who keeps making messianic references to himself, references that are blasphemous to all religions? Isn't that the ultimate price, Azmat?

I'll respond to your rebuttal as soon as the supercomputer finishes the translation/decryption. It keeps telling me that a rabid cat has landed on the keyboard.

Posted by: Darrell at November 2, 2008 09:04 PM

I have no rebuttal, Darrell you win, I don't know exactly what but you win! Care to make a side bet on the election tomorrow, tell you what, I will take McCain and Palin for the right price. Any amount you win will be donated through LMA.

If Obama wins, humanity loses. It's already all on the line. Now go tell Nancy Pelosi what they really meant by "The Great Depression." Wait 'till she is blinking at 60 blinks/minute or less, though.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
