Five Scandalicious PoliQ Meems

First, this kick ass image is courtesy of @JPostman on Twitter, social networking guru and author. Thank you, J.

Second, THANK YOU to every blogger who participated in the poliQ Meem. So far, we are up to 18 (as far as I know). I'm kvellarella. I am hoping this week, we can hit 20! Spill the beans and viralate this meem. Ooh, I think I'm happy with viralate as a new made up word. Thoughts? Love? Hate? Maybe?

The more we discuss the issues in this forum, the more I hope we sway moderates and independents, even libertarians fencing and wondering why they should bother voting. Every poli blogger who posted the poliQ Meem here, here, here and here not only shared their personal point of view, but maintained extraordinary objectivity and presented honest, insightful facts about the economy -- especially -- where we're headed if another republican is elected into office. And how much the middle and working class have suffered during the past eight-years. Can we really afford more of the same? Seriously?! Personally, I feel Palin is the devil's mistress and McSlain is a fucktard with one foot on the peel. Objectively, we will hit a depression and economic disaster if they win, period. Sorry. I'm blueJewin' it on that one, kids.

However... I am proud to bring you five more fabulous poliQ meems, all are new bloggers to me. Each offers a unique perspective on similar issues and are definitely worth the read.

The Quaker Agitator is most furious about the wars, yes wars, not war: within our country and abroad and the economic fallout as a result. QA spilled about education, too. My favey quote was in response to the question if McCain/Palin were to win this election where we'd be in four years "To hell, quickly, in an Alaskan hand basket. With wolf fur trim." HA. Though, he's right. His response to question #6 will take your mothah fuckin wig off! Final quotable that I la-havd "John McCain selected Ms. Palin simply and only for the sake of political expediency, and because, I believe, some other folks wanted her on the ticket to satisfy their agendas. And that makes this choice rash, and dangerous." What are you waiting for? Click, beautiful babies, click.

Liberality is a divine dame, she's a hippie by her design. The issues she's most passionate about in this election are the restoration of our civil liberties, ending the war and preserving the environment. She writes at length about the severity of our economic sitch and the realities we face if Obama/Biden don't make it into office. Favorite quotable, "We have lost our civil rights. We have become a broken country with a broken government. We went from having a balanced budget, with a peace time surplus, to a huge debtor nation on the brink of collapse." She's sooooo right! Run. Read. Now.

Border Explorer is a volunteer and an activist. Her biggest issues, the war, peace, foreign policy, the economy, international trade, constitutional rights, health care and the environment. Ooh, good quote "Our economy is bottoming out. Irresponsible spending has bankrupted us." Sad, but true. You gotta read this one, tootsie rolls.

A Feather Adrift's issues are health care, the war and foreign policy. Her points regarding eliminating lobbyists and removing business from politics were excellent. For the love, we've become a war mongering big business government and we've been fucked because of it. Good quotey-quote "Palin is unqualified pure and simple, and an embarrassment internationally." And "Sarah Palin is not fit to run a day care center let alone a country." You disagree? Didn't think so. Read.

Okjimms Eggroll Emporium's take is snarky, funny and wise. His issues of concern, the war and when "Palin is going to finish that bridge from Alaska to Hawaii". Ha. Check it out, yo.
