Palin Derangement Syndrome in a full-throated chortle

OK, we all know that the Left is in a panic mode because John McCain picked Sarah Palin -- a governor that few even considered as his veep, and one that the media didn't come up with oppo-research against. They have tried to slime and smear her left and right, and nothing seems to stick. Why? Because she's squeaky-clean, folks. There's nothing in her past that even remotely raises questions or eyebrows, at least not in the way that Obama and Biden do. So, what's the Left to do when they can't get traction with her?

Enter Naomi Wolf (Al Gore's former fashion advisor) and her lunatic rantings:

Please understand what you are looking at when you look at Sarah "Evita" Palin. You are looking at the designated muse of the coming American police state.

You have to understand how things work in a closing society in order to understand "Palin Power." A gang or cabal seizes power, usually with an affable, weak figurehead at the fore. Then they will hold elections -- but they will make sure that the election will be corrupted and that the next affable, weak figurehead is entirely in their control. Remember, Russia has Presidents; Russia holds elections. Dictators and gangs of thugs all over the world hold elections. It means nothing. When a cabal has seized power you can have elections and even presidents, but you have freedom.

I realized early on with horror what I was seeing in Governor Palin: the continuation of the Rove-Cheney cabal, but this time without restraints. I heard her echo Bush 2000 soundbites ("the heart of America is on display") and realized Bush's speechwriters were writing her -- not McCain's -- speeches. I heard her tell George Bush's lies -- not McCain's -- to the American people, linking 9/11 to Iraq. I heard her make fun of Barack Obama for wanting to prevent the torture of prisoners -- this is Rove-Cheney's enthusiastic S and M, not McCain's, who, though he shamefully colluded in the 2006 Military Tribunals Act, is also a former prisoner of war and wrote an eloquent Newsweek piece in 2005 opposing torture. I saw that she was even styled by the same skillful stylist (neutral lipstick, matte makeup, dark colors) who turned Katharine Harris from a mall rat into a stateswoman and who styles all the women in the Bush orbit --but who does not bother to style Cindy McCain.

Then I saw and heard more. Palin is embracing lawlessness in defying Alaskan Legislature subpoenas --this is what Rove-Cheney, and not McCain, believe in doing. She uses mafia tactics against critics, like the police commissioner who was railroaded for opposing handguns in Alaskan battered women's shelters -- Rove's style, not McCain's. I realized what I was seeing.

Reports confirmed my suspicions: Palin, not McCain, is the FrankenBarbie of the Rove-Cheney cabal. The strategy became clear. Time magazine reported that Rove is "dialed in" to the McCain campaign. Rove's protégé Steve Schmidt is now campaign manager. And Politico reported that Rove was heavily involved in McCain's vice presidential selection. Finally a new report shows that there are dozens of Bush and Rove operatives surrounding Sarah Palin and orchestrating her every move.

What's the plan? It is this. McCain doesn't matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future -- for a decade perhaps -- a puppet "president" for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.

How, you may ask, can I assert this? How can I argue, as I now do, that there is actually a war being ramped up against US citizens and our democracy and that Sarah Palin is the figurehead and muse for that war?

Look at the RNC. This is supposed to be McCain's America. But you see the unmistakable theatre of Rove's S and M imagery -- and you see stages eight, nine and ten of the steps to a dictatorship as I outlined them in The End of America. Preemptive arrest? Abusive arrest? "Newly released footage, which was buried to avoid confiscation, shows riot cops arresting and abusing a giant group of people for nothing."

Journalists were arrested -- for reporting. Amy Goodman and ABC producers were arrested. Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake and others were forced to lie face down as armed agents tied their hands behind their backs. The riot police wore the black S&M gear of the Rovian fantasy life and carried the four foot batons cops carry in North Korea. All this is not John McCain's imagery or strategy: it is Karl Rove's.

I heard of this yesterday from a buddy of mine who texted the link to me, and I couldn't stop laughing. These people have clearly leaped off the precipice of reality, and landed flat on their face in their fantasy world where they, and only they, can save the nation. To them, this nation's heartland fabric is torn to shreds; a tattered shell of it's former self. The Constitution has been shredded and the "Rovian S & M" style of politics has been in action and on display for the past eight years. Hell, for all we know, they might think that this all started under Reagan. (On thing's for sure, they'll always tie it back to Reagan.)

These people are certifiable, and if McCain wins, their heads are likely to explode. Remember the stories back in 2004 of the people claiming to be suffering from PESTS? (Post-Election Stress and Trauma Syndrome). After this election, they'll be suffering from CHANGE. (Couldn't Help A Nitwit Get Elected.) Expect a lot of antidepressants to be handed out, and expect a lot of time on the shrinks couch. In fact, we can picture them just like the old Gary Larsen cartoon has. A psychiatrist is listening to his patient, and on his notepad he scrawls the phrase "Just plain NUTS."

That's Naomi Wolf. That's the Left. That's the KosKiddie nutroots. These people can't be cured. And I'm not sure if we'll have enough straitjackets for all of those who will lose their minds after this election.
