Going away? Not likely

After quitting as Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin's new book, Going Rogue, arrives on bookshelves in November. "Rogue" was her affectionate nickname as the VP candidate during John McCain's failed Presidential run.

I guess it was so cute and fit her that she's capitalizing on it's success.

Known as the champion of the GOP's position to derail and cause failure with anything President Obama says or does, she coined the phrase, "Death Panels" to describe his health care reform project. And, if after listening to her speak, if your own child doesn't have "Down Syndrome," you actually feel guilty.

I wonder if she has a chapter in her book, "How to Quit Your Job," or "How to Let Everyone Down"?
Instead of "going rogue," I wish she'd just go away.

Great comeback chief. You are on a slide down in the pits.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:38

Still old news chief. Get with it.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:38

Nemo,

Well, nice to see you in the pitts...good to have company that knows their way around here.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:40

I am the one about you on the rim chief. Your talking to your feet.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:40

Alrighty then, on that, probably the lamest comeback in the history of the NCP, I will take my leave. Everyone have a good weekend and next week.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:41

Nemo,

Lame comeback. Try again.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:41

That is your comeback. This is even low for you chief.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:46

Nemo,

Sorry but I call them as I see them...it was a weak comeback.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:54

Well, this WOULD explain why the two strategies are so similar anyway.

Cheney: Obama's Afghan War Strategy 'Bears Striking Resemblance' to Bush's

Former Vice President Dick Cheney returned fire on the Obama administration Wednesday over an allegation that the Bush White House did not ask any key questions about the war in Afghanistan, forcing Obama officials to form a strategy from scratch and leaving the war "adrift."

Farm Animals? As everyone knows by now, 'House" has the degree in Animal Husbandry, and can only speak from experience and intelligence on the matter.

men who voted for McCain last year experienced a measurable drop in testosterone levels after Obama was declared the winner.

I'm starting to speak in a deeper voice.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:14

Blanket,

Well, since Obama didn't take Tennessee, I guess that means the women here will have to find other men to date, right?

By: idgaf on 10/22/09 at 12:15

chakracon, He is a black guy that patronizes hookers and went to the obama revival meeting..

Davidson County was blue.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:16

Slacker,

Must be cold season. LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:17

Blanket,

Ok..so the rest either have to come to Davidson county...or deal with being alone for 3 more years?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 12:21

chief, your reasoning skills are weak. just because the majority of folks voted republican does not mean ALL of them did. gosh, you are dense.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:29

Blanket,

I was being facetious in keeping with the silly story. I would have thought you picked up on that.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 12:43

Blanket if chief was even dense that would be a step up.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 12:47

talk about desperately trying to save face. he's a moron. i guess that lack of testosterone is making him testy.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:48

Nemo,

This from the man who's the stuff of black holes.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:48

Sorry, should have said white dwarfs.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 12:49

Blanket his not gay or anything else. He is just a spot on the carpet.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:50

Blanket,

I expected more from you, a woman of your education.

BTW, I have testosterone to spare...and have the wife and kids to prove it too, thanks.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 12:51

doesn't mean they're YOUR kids....

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 12:54

Burn, chief.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:56

Nemo,

Says the speck on the bathroom of lepers.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 12:57

Hey, here's a list of artists whose songs were used to torture people at Gitmo. Somehow Wing didn't make the list.....

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 12:59

Blanket,

Cute, but they're mine...I was there every step of the way. Jealous of not having a guy for yourself, so you try to tear me down...or are you still just PO'd at me?

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:00

Nemo,

Well, SOMEONE had to defend you...you certainly couldn't do it for yourself!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 1:01

chief, i just get tired of your hypocritical and hateful rants. you act like a jerk. trust me, you have nothing for which i would be jealous.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 1:02

chief if you had a personality it would belong to someone else.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:03

Blanket,

Well, just so you know the feeling is mutual. And, even if I am acting "like a jerk", trust ME when I tell you I don't have a monopoly on that! Works BOTH ways!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 1:04

Would you pay $4.95 to attend a motivational speech by President George W. Bush?

Yes 31%
No 69%

Now that's funny!

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:05

Nemo, if you had a personality, no one would want it regardless. But since you are nothing but a black hole, it doesn't matter much.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:06

Blanket,

That's interesting. Where did you find that?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 1:07

Nemo has a wonderful personality. I picture him as a big lovable teddy bear of a guy. Am I close, Nemo? 8~)

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 1:17

chief if you could only come up with an orginial comebacks that would be something.

All you have are do overs of someone else. You do not have anything that is orginial. Nothing that you can call your own idea. You are a programmed fuzzy hand puppet.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 1:20

You got the big right, Blanket, but thanks for the other. :-)

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:21

Nemo,

Everything I do is original...you're just too used to the canned retorts.

Blanket,

Nothing like being tossed a softball question to make another person feel good about himself...well done.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 1:25

There you go again chief. That canned retorts has been used by others.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 1:27

Nemo,

You heard the canned retorts so long, you've forgotten what an original sounds like.

So sad.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 1:30

Your losing it chief. Maybe this is why the army has not called you back.

By: dargent7 on 10/22/09 at 1:33
