An interesting irony of this election:
Hillary supporter links Rush Limbaugh

In a post this morning, I noted the irony that those voting for Obama as a “change” from the last eight years will really get more (much more) of the same on domestic policy should their man win.  For like the Republican incumbent, the Democratic nominee favors ever higher levels of federal spending.

Another irony of this election is the number of people supporting their ideological adversaries.  We read regularly of conservatives backing Obama, perhaps the most liberal Democratic nominee ever.

But, the MSM are less wont to cover the numerous left-of-center feminists backing McCain-Palin.  Shelly Mandell, the president of the LA chapter of the left-wing National Organization for Women (NOW), has endorsed the Republican ticket, largely because of the party’s vice presidential nominee:

Now, we learn that Elaine Lafferty, former editor-in-chief of Ms. magazine, has been advising the McCain campaign.  This feminist dismantles some of the media myths about the Alaska Governor and finds her to be smart and a “quicky study.”

I only fully egistered the meaning of Ms. Lafferty’s defense (which a reader sent me last night) this afternoon when my left-leaning lesbian Palin-loving friend forwarded me an e-mail she got from her Hillary 2012 listserv, a link to Rush Limbaugh’s remarks on the Democratic Party’s threat to private pensions.

A Hillary supporter encouraging us to listen to Rush Limbaugh.  Ah the ironies of the 2008 election!

  2. I never thought I’d say it… but I wish I could vote for Hillary.

    Hey… wait a minute… I can.

    It won’t make any difference, but I’ll feel better.

  3. Hey V the K-
    I am a Hillary supporter too.
    But it’s a 2 party race- don’t waste your precious vote,
    The dnc threw Hillary under the bus.
    Vote McCain-Pailin or we might just have (shudder) Obama and his lovely wife, Michelle in the White House
    And an Obama-Pelosi- Reid triumverate

    Explaining Socialism- for those of you who don’t understand what “spreading the wealth around” means.

    It’s Halloween and you go out with your friends and trick-or-treat for hours- knocking on doors in the dark and the cold, collecting all your candy goodies.

    When you get home, cold, tired and hungry you begin to sort through your hard earned Halloween treats and then- “THEY” step in and say “Stop! You must give US half of your candy (since you have SO MUCH)- so that WE can give it to the children who were too lazy to buy or make a Halloween costume and exert the effort to go out into the dark and cold- to get THEIR SHARE.”

    THAT, People, is what Socialism is about.

    McCain-Palin 2008
    Don’t let the media, polls, pundits or long lines discourage you!
    VOTE McCain Palin 2008!

  5. A Hillary supporter encouraging us to listen to Rush Limbaugh. Ah the ironies of the 2008 election!

    Hey, it’s a classic case of quid-pro-quo. After all, it was Limbaugh who nearly tipped the nod for Hillary in the primaries with his operation Chaos.

  6. If it wasn’t for Palin, I think I would be agreeing with Ann Coulter and support Hillary over McCain (if that was the choice)

  7. Maybe Hillary will join with Republicans to block the Fairness Doctrine… wouldn’t *that* be ironic?

  8. Don’t expect anything from Hillary.. She had her chance to choose between truth and humiliation.. and she choose humiliation by campaigning for Obama.

  9. Ace is trying to match-up volunteers for GOTV in swing states. If you live in a state whose EV are a foregone conclusion, you can volunteer to knock on doors and make phone calls in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Mexico, or Nevada.

    I’m thinking of going up to PA to help Bill Russell against John Murtha.

  10. #3: Hey, Alec, I think you’re on to something there. Your metaphorical Halloween story (minus the “metaphorical”) might be just the ticket to convince the entire gay community not to cast their vote for Obama. If all of us told all of our gay friends that if they support Obama, he’s going to cancel Gay Christma…er…Halloween ’09, it would be McCain/Palin by a landslide.

    Marriage-Schmarriage. Don’t mess with the gays’ one chance every year to leave the house in bad drag.

  11. A California NAG supporting McCain/Palin? Though I saw Satan on ice skates this morning.

    BTW, has Bill ever campaigned for anybody who’s won?

  12. #3: And by the way, Alec, I accept your metaphor completely assuming the following: that your bank will accept only Reese’s peanut butter cups to prevent foreclosure on your home; that your car runs on Twizzlers; that the Piggly-Wiggly only accepts Smarties for meat and produce; and that your kid’s university accepts only 3 Musketeers for tuition.

    Now imagine that Obama is an eccentric hermit, living in a giant, mysterious factory with his 3-foot-tall orange friends, Pelosi, Frank, and Reid, deciding whether any of us are worthy of a golden ticket…

    THAT’S socialism.

  13. Tammy Bruce used to lead LA NOW. Must be something in the LA water that affects feminists.

  14. What the hell was that gawdawful music at the beginning of the video? Tell me they aren’t playing that crap at rallies!

  16. Yes, the world has been turned upside down this election. Hillary supporters are not only listening to Rush – and often agreeing with him – but also only listen to Fox News. You will find us in McCain campaign offices all over the country working our hearts out for the McCain/Palin ticket, as well as phone banking every spare minute up to the election. We have busloads of PUMA’s from New York canvassing all over Pennsylvania every Saturday and Sunday up to the election. Other busloads of gay male PUMA’s are crisscrossing Ohio doing the same thing. (Check out the blog HillBuzz to get all the grassroots reports from the field). We’ve all been astonished to find out how much we have in common with the Republicans we’ve worked with, and they have said the same about us. There are tons of PUMA blogs and a Hillary Clinton forum supporting McCain/Palin and spreading the truth about Obama.

    But of course, you will never hear this in the news. According to them, Obama has unified the Democratic Party and there are only a few bitter, old women holdouts remaining. They don’t point to the polls that show 28%+ of Hillary supporters voting for McCain and many more staying home. Nor do they mention how many males are in our group. Nor all the young people, African Americans, blue collar workers, professionals, etc. They don’t want you to know that there is a Civil War going on in the Democratic Party. We watched the extensive fraud of the primaries and the convention, and we aren’t ever going to unify with these people. The far, loony left has taken over our party without our permission, and we are going to fight for it until we have it back or start another one. So don’t believe what you hear in the MSM. They are totally in the tank for Obama. They aren’t going to report anything that would hurt Obama. It’s up to us to fight back and keep this disaster out of the White House.
