Frightened Republicans Use Best Weapon for Their Base:
Mockery, Mean-Spiritedness, Fear, Sarcasm, and Lies

What else to do in the absence of any respectable record for the last eight years?

Here's Rudy Giuliani (if you can stomach him) and pit-bull-in-lipstick VP pick Sarah Palin who can deliver a speech, despite its pandering excesses.

Did Giuliani actually say, "Sarah Palin has more experience than the entire Democratic ticket combined?"

The mockery of "community organizing" is despicable, as if somehow serving one's country instead of one's self-interest is something to be looked down upon.

Here's an article from the AP on the ways in which the truth was stretched last night.

And here's a bit on Giuliani's "Islamic terrorism" throwdown from Think Progress.

And a flashback on Palin for you, recorded just weeks ago:

"As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day?"
