Desperation was the message coming from MTV Music Awards host Russell Brand and the message on every left wing hate site this weekend. They are flailing, grasping at straws, lashing out at anything they believe threatens the official annointing of the Chosen One. Evidently, these enlightened progressive intellectuals are too stupid to realize that the biggest reason for the shift in the polls that are showing McCain now in the lead is not Sarah Palin. It is their vicious, disgusting, soulless attacks on her and her family. Thank you Kossacks. Thank you DUmmies. Thank you empty-headed celebrities. We could never have jumped to a ten point lead without you!

Here is a link to the Russell Brand video.

Michelle Malkin has a transcript and lots of background information on Brand, as well as reaction to his latest performance. Here is the transcript Michelle prepared of the rant which occurred just a few minutes into the program:

BRAND: “Now, as a representative of the global community and a visitor from abroad, I don’t want to come across a little bit biased, but could I please ask of you people of America, to PLEASE ELECT BARACK OBAMA. Please! On behalf of the world. (Camera pans to singers Chris Brown and Britney Spears applauding and cheering.) Some people, I think they’re called racists, say that America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward-thinking country, right. Because, otherwise, you know, would you have let that retarded cowboy fellow be president for eight years?

We were very impressed. It was nice of you to let him have a go. Because in England, George Bush wouldn’t be trusted with a pair of scissors.

I am obliged by broadcasting law to show some balance in this situation, which means, uh, the Republicans might be alright. Sarah Palin. She’s a VILF! A vice president I’d like to…fumble, fondle, I dunno. I do feel a little bit sorry for her daughter, getting pregnant, poor kid. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? It’s a P.R. stunt. Come on. Be honest.

And I feel most sorry for that poor teenaged father. Boy. One minute, he’s just a teenaged lad in Alaska having joyful, unprotected sex. And the next minute: Get to the Republican convention. I think that is the best safe sex message of all time. Use a condom or become Republican! …That boy will spend the rest of his life masturbating while wearing a condom…

…New music, new president, and brand new America. And you people deserve it after eight years of Bush. I promise you, you deserve it…

Update: Here is a less sensational, but equally desperate attempt to smear Sarah Palin. There are only about a hundred or so equally lame Palin “scandals” like this floating around on the internet. I expect them to continue to multiply since they are working so well. Ha.

Update II: Another act of desperation — kissing Don Clinton’s ring.
