Rolling Stones Equates Sarah Palin with Barack Obama

Rolling Stone magazine featured an article titled "Mad Dog Palin" in its October 2, 2008 issue that it apparently has deemed to vicious to post on its web site. This is the part that amused us:

"So, sure, Barack Obama might be every bit as much a slick piece of imageering as Sarah Palin."

"The Obama image represents tolerance, intelligence, education, patience with the notions of compromise and negotiation, and a willingness to stare ugly facts right in the face."

"Here's what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat f*cking pig who pins "Country First" buttons on his man titties and chants 'U-S-A! U-S-A!' at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas."

Way to go, Rolling Stone, for the tolerance and intelligence. And to the writer, Matt Taibbi, I wonder if you know this: if you and your ilk keep writing bile like this you're going to cost Barack Obama the election.

By the way, here's what Taibbi had say after the last election back on November 13, 2004:

"Bush is our fault. He's our fault because too many of us found it easier to hate him than find a way to love each other. If we work on the second thing a little harder, we won't need to rely on the cynics in the DLC to come up with the right 'formula' the next time around. Because happiness and hope have a way of selling themselves."
