Sarah Palin. What the fuck is she talking about?

Hello from Howdygramland. It’s late afternoon and I’m attempting to stay awake between naps with a Marcytini to keep me company. I have to admit, I’m loving my new pain medication because it totally knocks me out. God bless Gabapentin, people. I LOVE THIS SHIT.

Although I didn’t really need a segue to post this video clip, here’s living proof that SARAH PALIN MUST BE USING HARD DRUGS. This is a segment of her unintelligible remarks to the Iowa Freedom Summit on January 24, sponsored by idiot Congressman Steve King (R-IA) and well-attended by a contingent of right-wing asswipes all looking for campaign money from Citizens United. Financial issues aside, WHAT THE FUCK IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?

Last night I posted our latest Putz of the Week — once again, Governor Piyush “Call-Me-Bobby” Jindal of Louisiana — and included my thoughts about him keynoting a racist prayer rally on Saturday at LSU in Baton Route sponsored by the American Family Association (AFA), an organization of right-wing bigots that’s designated as a HATE GROUP by the Southern Poverty Law Center [see post]. The AFA is well-known for its apoplectic anti-gay rhetoric and opposition to any basic Constitutional rights for “non-Christians” Because LIBERTY! MORE GUNS! JESUS LOVES AMERICA!
Therefore I think this might be a fine time to provide some facts about the kind of assholes who sponsor and attend an event like this and how come a creepy little twit like Bobby Jindal thinks he’s their new “‘little buddy.”

Bryan Fischer, the chief spokesman for the American Family Association, has achieved national notoriety for his frightening beliefs, which include:
  • Calling for the criminalization of homosexuality, bans on pro-gay-rights speech, punishing gays with imprisonment and prohibiting gays from serving in any public office. 
  • Homosexuality is not a sexual orientation but a “disorder.”
  • Comparing gays to terrorists, murderers, Jim Crow proponents and Nazis.
  • Blaming gays for the 2008 financial collapse, the rise of the Islamic State, Hurricane Katrina, the sexual abuse of children and the Holocaust. Rather obsessed with homosexuals, aren’t they?
  • Insisting that non-Christians have no First Amendright rights and non-Christian immigrants should be forcibly converted to Christianity. This includes Hindus like Bobby Jindal’s parents, who Fisher believes practice “the doctrine of demons.” But Bobby’s “safe” because he converted to Catholicism in high school. Good boy, Bobby!
  • A long-term strategy “to place the Bible in public schools as the principal textbook of American education.”
  • Arguing that the violent expulsion and slaughter of Native Americans was divinely ordained by Jesus.
Others in the AFA believe that: repealing Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell was responsible for freak bird deaths in Arkansas; marriage equality caused Hurriane Sandy; same-sex marriage will pave the way for legalization of marriage to animals and to inanimate objects like a national park or the Eiffel Tower and will usher in a worldwide economic collapse; homosexuality poisons culture and destroys families; gays recruit children; gays are worse than the Ku Klux Klan; and President Obama is an evil Muslim Antichrist.
Holy shit, right?

This morning I decided to order myself a new pill organizer from Amazon to replace the new pill organizer Sam bought me yesterday at Wal-Mart. No, I’m NOT mentally ill ... but the device that Sam bought didn’t give me any options for transporting a dose of pills from room to room unless I want to carry the entire organizer, which gets awkward when you’re mobility-impaired, use a cane and usually don’t have any free hands. Today’s organizer — the EZ-Dose — has 28 adorable snap-out containers (four for each day of the week) that I can pop into the pocket of my robe so I can take a few pills with lunch or dinner in the family room when I watch “People’s Court.”
And because I’ve got a double whammy of arthritis and diabetic nerve damage in both hands I also ordered A GENUINE PHARMACY PILL-COUNTING TRAY with a coordinating spatula so I can fill all those teeny compartments without blowing my brains out. My dad was a Walgreens pharmacist and this is the same kind of tray he always used. He’s smiling at me right now!
I’m ready for another nap because I almost can’t keep my eyes open. Thank you for reading this and happy Monday to you and yours.
