Hvar kastar maur upp...?

N keppast jafnvel repblkanar um a mra Obama og virast alveg hafa gleymt eim orum sem eir/r ltu falla hita kosningabarttunnar. Palin sem fyrir stuttu sagi Obama slpast um me terroristum n ekki til or um hva a s gott a hann veri forseti og hversu g og falleg hans famila s. Virini Michelle Bachmann tekur sama streng eftir a hafa nstum v tapa ingsti snu eftir a hafa kalla Obama anti-american og fari fram a fjlmilar geru McCarthy-ska rannskn ingmnnum.

Just a few weeks ago, at the height of the campaign, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota told Chris Matthews of MSNBC that, when it came to Mr. Obama, Im very concerned that he may have anti-American views.

But there she was on Wednesday, after narrowly escaping defeat because of those comments, saying she was extremely grateful that we have an African-American who has won this year. Ms. Bachmann, a Republican, called Mr. Obamas victory, which included her state, a tremendous signal we sent.

And it was not too long ago that Senator John McCains running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, accused Mr. Obama of palling around with terrorists.

But she took an entirely different tone on Thursday, when she chastised reporters for asking her questions about her war with some staff members in the McCain campaign at such a heady time. Barack Obama has been elected president, Ms. Palin said. Let us, let us let him be able to kind of savor this moment, one, and not let the pettiness of maybe internal workings of the campaign erode any of the recognition of this historic moment that were in. And God bless Barack Obama and his beautiful family.

a arf einnig ekki a koma vart a Joe Lieberman mri Obama eirri von um a Demkratar gleymi a hann skipti um li adraganda kosninganna og steig meira a segja pontu ingi Repblkana St. Paul haust. N vill Lieberman a svoleiis smmunir veri grafnir og hann geti haldi fram a sinna byrgarstrfum undir vernarvng Demkrata.

Marshall Wittmann, a spokesman for Mr. Lieberman, said that as far as the senator was concerned, Its over, and its genuinely time to find unity and move forward behind the new president.

And what about that whole bit about Mr. Obama not always putting his country first? He believes that President-elect Obama and, then, Senator Obama is a genuine patriot and loves his country, Mr. Wittmann said. The only point he was making in his campaign was about partisanship.


Senior (ea var a senile?) moment...

Palin/Bachmann 2012...

etta er srasta tillaga rsins. Einhver vit(fir)ringur hgri vngnum hefur fengi brsnjllu hugmynd a tefla fram tveimur konum forsetakosningunum 2012. a er ekkert nema gott um a a segja a hafa 2 konur framboi - - svo lengi sem ekki er um a ra Sarah Palin og Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann essi var ar til nlega frekar ltt ekktur ingmaur Repblkana fr Minnesota og ekktust fyrir mjg svo afturhaldssinnaar skoanir, ofsakristni og a a slefa kinnina George Bush. Hn stendur essa stundina kosningabarttu heimahrai snu og gekk tiltlulega vel ar til hn kom fram hj Chris Matthews Hardball. ar endurtk hn nokkrum sinnum a Obama hefi anti-american views. Svo klykkti hn t me a segja a fjlmilar ttu a rannsaka ingi og sj hverjir vru anti-american. McCarthy all over again...

Augljslega var etta frekar smart a segja og hefur allt snist hndum hennar eftir etta og hn tapa ruggu forskoti snu. Meira a segja Repblkanaflokkurinn hefur afneita henni og skori fjrveitingar til barttu hennar mean andstingurinn rakar inn dollurum til sinnar barttu. Bachmann hefur reynt a bera btiflka fyrir hin kengbiluu ummli sn en fir hlusta nema eir sem eru smu bizarre bylgjulengd og hn. Manneskjan er snarbilu og ef einhver er anti-american er a hn. Megi hn hverfa af plitsku yfirbori Minnesota.


Meira af hangendum McPain...

Og etta er ri 2008...? Woundering


a er gott a eiga ga adendur og stuningsmenn...

Me McCain/Palin adendur sem essa arf maur ekkert a ttast...

Palin hlt sj, talai miki en sagi lti...

Vafalti munu menn deila nstu daga um hver st sig betur, Palin ea Biden. Sannast sagna var ekki srlega miki ket beinum essarar kappru frambjenda. Biden hlt aftur af sr, hlt tungunni skefjum og klrai engu. Virkai urr kflum. Palin st sig betur en bist var vi sem var ekki erfitt v a eftir skelfilega frammistu hennar Hj Katie Couric bjst g vi 90 mntna kjnahrolli. a er ljst a Palin er kona ltilla sva og ltilla sanda.

Biden var mun rkfastari og svarai spurningum Ifill lkt Palin sem dr reynslu sna fr Alaska inn nr allt sem spurt var um og foraist lengstu lg a svara gilegum spurningum og reyndar spurningum yfir hfu. Hennar hluti byggist miki fum frsum (sem hn flutti nokku fumlaust og vel) og hn reyndi meira a segja "there he goes again" trikk Ronald Reagan en me mun tilrifaminni rangri en the Gipper. ess utan reyndi hn endalaust a selja sig og Palin sem mavericks egar sagan snir allt anna og faktskt jarai Biden a vel.

Palin vann kannski varnarsigur en hn tapai kapprunum rtt fyrir a. etta var eins og a horfa upphaldsftboltalii manns tapa 4:1 egar maur bjst vi 14:2 tapi og prsa sig svo slann eftir leikinn a ekki fr verr.


Best of Sarah Palin...

a er ekki r vegi a rifja upp nokkur gullkorn the hockey mom tilefni ess a senn mun hn takast vi Biden varpinu. a er hverjum heilskyggnum manni ljst a Sarah er allsendis fr um a taka a sr starf varaforseta og ef einhver er enn vafa, vinsamlega hlusti vitl hennar vi Katie Couric vikunni. a hrslast um mann kjnahrollurinn - aftur og aftur. Meira a segja Kathleen Parker National Review Online (sem seint verur talinn vinstrisinnaur miill) er bin a f ng.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, Ive been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. Ive also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

Ga grein er a finna Slate dag um miur ga frammistu hennar og Slate s kannski heldur oftar hallandi til vinstri er ar oft a finna beittar og vel skrifaar greinar sem gagnrna fyrirmenn beggja flokkanna. Augljst er a margir eru uggandi yfir eim mguleika a Palin vermi toppsti hsinu hvta. Maur verur a efast verulega um dmgreind McCain og ljsi srkennilegra ummla hans um mis mlefni sastlinar vikur veltir maur v fyrir sr hvort eitthva af ryki s fari a setjast hara diskinn kolli hans. Eins og einhver sagi: Be afraid, be very afraid...

A lokum og sem tskring titli frslunnar...


Fr Sarah Palin srmefer fjlmilum...?

N fara kapprur frambjenda senn a hefjast og er mikil spenna mnnum. McCain og Obama munu takast af hrku frjlsri afer, .e. tekist verur n ess a allt s skrifa og kvei fyrir fram.

Augljst er a Repblkanar treysta Sru ekki vel til a takast vi harjaxlinn og orhkinn Biden sem augljslega hefur mun meiri reynslu. Kapprur varaforsetaefnanna munu hafa mun strangari leikreglur me styttri og einfaldari spurningum og minni tma til andsvar. Auk ess verur minna um tkifri til "freewheeling" ar sem menn (og konur) takast n handrits intellektal akrbatk. Vonandi er etta bara orrmur v a vi eigum skili a sj frambjendur tala n handrits.

Er lffrilegur munur Repblknum og Demkrtum...?

J, kannski...

a var merkileg rannskn birt Science vikunni. Rannskn sem styur a a hangendur mismunandi stjrnmlaflokka kunni a vera mismunandi fleiri svium en v plitska. v miur er greinin fullri lengd lst me lykilori en sem er ver og miur ar sem hn er hin hugaverasta og vildi g gjarnan geta lmt hana hr inn.

Vsindamenn Nebraska hfu samband vi 46 manns og spuru um stjrnmlaskoanir samt v a leggja fyrir spurningalista um mis ml er veri hafa deiglunni s.s. varnarml, fstureyingar, innflytjendur og rttindi samkynhneigra. annig fengust gar upplsingar um hvort vikomandi var "conservative" ea "liberal". A essu loknu voru ttakendur ltnir horfa allskyns myndir, bi gnvnlegar og ekki samt v a eir voru reittir me mismunandi hvrum hljum. Mean essu st voru mld alls kyns lkamsvibrg til a meta hvernig lkamunn svarai mismunandi reitum.

First, they were attached to equipment to measure skin conductivity, which rises with emotional stress as the moisture level in skin goes up. Each participant was shown threatening images, such as a bloody face interspersed with innocuous pictures of things such as bunnies, and rise in skin conductance in response to the shocking image was measured. The other measure was the involuntary eye blink that people have in response to something startling, such as a sudden loud noise. The scientists measured the amplitude of blinks via electrodes that detected muscle contractions under people's eyes.

The researchers found that both of these responses correlated significantly with whether a person was liberal or conservative socially. Subjects who had expressed a high level of support for policies "protecting the social unit" showed a much larger change in skin conductance in response to alarming photos than those who didn't support such policies. Similarly, the mean blink amplitude for the socially protective subjects was significantly higher, the team reports in tomorrow's issue of Science. Co-author Kevin Smith says the results showed that automatic fear responses are better predictors of protective attitudes than sex or age (men and older people tend to be more conservative).

Annars tskrir Washington Post etta betur en g get gert. Niurstaan er kannski ekki s a Repblkanar og Demkratar su mismunandi saman settir (eins og nokku villandi titill frslunnar gti gefii til kynna) heldur s a flki me konserfatfar skoanir virist brega frekar en hinum sem meira lberal eru s eim sndar myndir ea tsettir fyrir hljreiti. Ea er etta kannski hinn veginn, .e. eir sem eru a eli snu tortryggnir og bregur frekar su lklegri til a hafa konservatfar skoanir (og lklegri til a kjsa Repblkana...).

Kannski er eitthva til frasanum politics of fear...

Repblkani...?
