Palin goes to the debate camp dog house

Sarah Palin is off to the McCain's creekside retreat in Arizona for an intensive debate camp... and she's bringing her husband and kids? What, to play in the house while the McCains are away? To play in the creek? To bone up on sex ed and dinosaurs? To help grill her on pressing policy points?

Joe Biden is at home for his own debate camp. I suppose his family is around, but he doesn't really have as much remedial homework to do. I mean, he's met with the Georgian president twice lately, once in Georgia (Athens, I think, or was it Savannah) and once in New York near the U.N., a place Sarah Palin saw for the first time in person last week. She and Katie Couric took a nice stroll in the plaza there, you may recall.

Meanwhile, David Letterman and Jon Stewart are having field days with all of this, but believe you me, they can come up with plenty of funny things to say even if the Obama-Biden ticket wins. So please don't make it any easier for them by voting for McCain-Palin. Palin might be a barrel of anxious laughs, of the stomach-turning sort, but McCain, he ain't funny.

Since Reagan left office, the GOP has become the party of high anxiety. Higher still after Poppy retired, and higher and higher, as of late, as they front for the Cheney & Co. gestapo. No wonder they use fear tactics to get what they want, effectively black-mailing the shaky electorate. And no wonder they're SUCH sore losers.

Like buddy boy Bush, McCain's all bluster about "winning with honor" (and don't use the word "lose"). Okay, let's see if he can 'let this one go' with honor. Time to clear out kids, grand pap is coming home.

One-Man Sensation
CITIZEN JOSH
a Jonathan Reinis Production
written and performed by Josh Kornbluth
in collaboration with director David Dower

October 9 through 26, 2008 in Crystal City

“Beautifully staged…It’s smart. It’s very funny. It’s another highly entertaining evening with Kornbluth.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Kornbluth is a writer with great originality and depth and a spell-binding performer. What more can you expect from an evening at the theater?” —New York Daily News

Troubled by the election in 2004 and the health of American democracy, Josh Kornbluth (author of Red Diaper Baby) came to the conclusion that perhaps voting is just not enough. As a result of his distress, Kornbluth created this smart and funny exploration of active citizen participation. Just in time for election season, Citizen Josh weaves a web of entertaining and moving autobiographical tales into a personal quest to examine and engage the fundamentals of democracy. Kornbluth last produced Love & Taxes at Arena and continues his long-time association with our own Producing Artistic Associate, David Dower. So before you cast your ballot on November 4th, consider one last perspective from an irreverent, side-splitting and powerful citizen.

ONLY THREE WEEKS OF PERFORMANCES. Save 50% with the code: JOSH50! Tickets with code only $17.50!

Sara is quite the character, but also dangerous. It is one thing to laugh at but quite another if she gets into office. Just look at the Bush policies.
