The FrankenBarbie of the Rove-Cheney Cabal?

The title of the post is not a joke.

Naomi Wolf, a contemporary "progressive" who has written books and articles on "
fascists America," has an essay up at the Huffiington Post entitled, "The Battle Plan II: Sarah "Evita" Palin, the Muse of the Coming Police State."

The post is not satire. Wolf is totally serious when
she writes:

I realized early on with horror what I was seeing in Governor Palin: the continuation of the Rove-Cheney cabal, but this time without restraints. I heard her echo Bush 2000 soundbites ("the heart of America is on display") and realized Bush's speechwriters were writing her - not McCain's - speeches. I heard her tell George Bush's lies - not McCain's - to the American people, linking 9/11 to Iraq. I heard her make fun of Barack Obama for wanting to prevent the torture of prisoners - this is Rove-Cheney's enthusiastic S and M, not McCain's, who, though he shamefully colluded in the 2006 Military Tribunals Act, is also a former prisoner of war and wrote an eloquent Newsweek piece in 2005 opposing torture. I saw that she was even styled by the same skillful stylist (neutral lipstick, matte makeup, dark colors) who turned Katharine Harris from a mall rat into a stateswoman and who styles all the women in the Bush orbit -but who does not bother to style Cindy McCain.

Then I saw and heard more. Palin is embracing lawlessness in defying Alaskan Legislature subpoenas --this is what Rove-Cheney, and not McCain, believe in doing. She uses mafia tactics against critics, like the police commissioner who was railroaded for opposing handguns in Alaskan battered women's shelters - Rove's style, not McCain's. I realized what I was seeing.

Reports confirmed my suspicions: Palin, not McCain, is the FrankenBarbie of the Rove-Cheney cabal.
Why all the "not McCains"?

Naturally, Senator McCain going to kick the bucket, and then a "Palinist" cult of personality will envelope the country as the lights go out on the American democracy:

McCain doesn't matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future - for a decade perhaps - a puppet "president" for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.
Which raises a funny question: I thought the lights already went out on the American democracy with the accession of BushCo and the Halliburton neo-Nazi regime?

Just make a note of it, dear readers: This is the face of the mainstream Democratic-left.

These folks will have an open-door to the White House in a Barack Obama administration. As it is, the leftist netroots is Obama's CREEP, looking to use any and all tactics to seize power in their push toward European-style corporatism in a "New New Deal" (although the true radicals hope to hijack the democracy with full-blown neo-Stalinist takeover of the American state).


UPDATE: Newsbusters agrees with my analysis:

It sounds like the rabid rantings of some poor demented shlub posting at the Democratic Underground. Instead, it is Al Gore's former fashion adviser, Naomi Wolf, indulging in sanity-challenged fantasies on her Huffington Post blog. The target of Wolf's derangement is Sarah Palin and it is so over the top that one might suspect Wolf is an agent provocateur working for conservatives in order to discredit the left. Think I'm kidding? Check out this sampling of Wolf's plunge off the political deep end...
Recall, though, Wolf's not at all atypical.
