How Facism enters the US--hint, it's wearing lipstick.

Don't you think attack helicopters look so much more, ah, unthreatening, when tricked out in pink bows? Don't you think the same is true of lipstick wearing pitbulls?

From the WaPo

Worse, Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."

The reception had been better in Clearwater, where Palin, speaking to a sea of "Palin Power" and "Sarahcuda" T-shirts, tried to link Obama to the 1960s Weather Underground. "One of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers," she said. ("Boooo!" said the crowd.) "And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,' " she continued. ("Boooo!" the crowd repeated.)

"Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

"Sit down, boy." "Kill him!" Is this the new face of America? I hide may head in shame.

In response, I propose "Goose Steppers for Sarah," using as our patron saint, John Cleese; whom I suspect is not a supporter.

Or, alternatively, "Fascist Barbie" --complete with bonus nickname "Klaus." Can't you just see her all tricked out in those adorable and tight-fitting German army costumes, with the ever-so sexy black leather jackboots, and that staple of Alaskan fashion accessories, guns!

No such outfit would be complete without the standard-issue German Army "Gott Mit Uns" belt buckle. How could any one among us disagree with such a sincerely held sentiment? Photoshoppers, anyone?

OK, I'm all upset, any soothing music suggestions?

The Palin rabble is getting even meaner as the polls move in Obama's direction.

I heard a funny comment from when Palin was lurching from one bad interview to the next:

Moose lips sink ships.

Now there's a photo-shop I'm dying to see!

Indeed, adding a pink bow or some lipstick really does make evil be able to sneak up on you.

Now excuse me while I put on my riot gear. These Palin rallies are getting a little out of hand.

P.S. Ooh, where do I send away for my "Goose Steppers" information kit and membership form?

PPS. I love your "scary monster" tag. ;)

How about (though not as, ah, subtle) Youth against Facism by my beloved Sonic Youth. OK, I'm not exactly youthful these days, but then neither are they.

Plus, what about NWA Straight up N****

"America he was stole from the indians, show and prove, what was that? A straight up N**** move."

Though N**** isn't very N****

I'll have the "Goosesteppers for Palin kit" out any minute, right after the specially priced Rape kits--only $1300.00 get them while they're...uh, never mind.

PLus, thanks to Kerfuffler, the "goosestepers kit" should include the "Palinatrix barbie" complete with jackboots and whip, but no annoying newspapers or magazines (so much neater, dotchathink?), coming to a blog near you.
