Palin went all Tea Party gangsta on Karl Rove for Rove's accurate analysis of the threat O'Donnell poses the GOP's big dreams of taking the senate back this fall. Tonight on the The O'Reilly Factor, Palin called Karl out, issuing a few body blows to the Great White Thug in round one of the battle for the helm of the GOP.
Former part-time Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has repeatedly demonstrated her lack of knowledge about...well, almost everything, really. If there is an antidote to the European Enlightenment, which threw back the darkness of the Middle Ages and gave birth to the United States of America, it is Sarah Palin. She is to knowledge what kryptonite is to Superman. She is anti-knowledge.
Sarah Palin uses Twitter and Facebook to throw a lit match onto the heightened tensions with Afghans over the Qur'an burning by falsely accusing an Afghan candidate of calling for the death of US Children. Into the craven echoing emptiness of what used to be the moral center of the Republican Party, I now ask just when will they stop trying to harm this country?
Michael Joseph Gross recently wrote an accurate article that echoed the fearful voices from Alaska regarding Sarah Palin’s penchant for retribution and revenge. Since publishing it last week, he’s been the subject of endless attacks and revisionism from the Palin camp’s fringes as well as Palin herself. Today, Gross printed a response to the criticism.
The Right Wing is having a super hard time with this whole losing thing and it’s whipping them into a fury of potty-mouth tirades. From Rush Limbaugh to Sarah Palin, they’re obsessed with name-calling and sexual put-downs. Today Rush Limbaugh called Obama "hen-pecked," "imam-child," "wrecking ball," "agitator," and a "blithering novice," while Palin calls reporters “Impotent, Limp and Gutless”.
The seduction of the Tea Party for the people on the ground is obvious; they feel politicians are betraying them. They don’t trust Washington. They’re threatened by change. These elements never change; they are always ripe for manipulation by the dirtiest politicians who appeal to fear. All they need is a scapegoat upon which to funnel their impotent rage.
Well, do you remember that crazy woman who spent all of the money on clothes during the 2008 campaign and didn’t know what job she was running for and couldn’t answer any questions so she shut down the press until they would show “deference” to her? Yeah, Sarah Palin. That’s the one. Well, my friends……….It’s looking like she’s going to run for President of our great country.
A Public Policy Polling survey done of Alaskan voters in the Republican senatorial primaries, where Joe Miller appears to be winning in a surprising upset over incumbent Lisa Murkowski reveals that 59% percent of Alaskan voters weren’t moved by Palin’s endorsement.
The conservative demand for heroes is more intense than ever. There can never be enough dead heroes, Reagan, McCarthy and others, and living heroes seem even more in demand to judge by the quality of those being put forward, like Joe the Plumber, Sarah Palin, and by his own reckoning, Glenn Beck.
It seems Joe Miller rose up with his Mama Grizzly and stole a lead over incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski! The pundits will be wild with glee for another reason to keep Sister Sarah in their sights this morning. That woman is gold. The Democrats will be happy, because after all, Sarah is their biggest fund-raiser and who is easier to run against than a fringy Tea Partier? But you? You will not be happy.
Hey, it's a "free" country and Todd can live to secede if he wants! What matters is that he's the kinda guy I want to have a beer with. He's a middle class fisherman who doubles as Mr Mom. Sure, he puled a Rove and refused to comply with a subpoena, but what did you expect him to do, lie under oath? And since nothing says Pro-life Christian like a tacky attempt to intimidate a citizen, here's Palin's America -- oh, and while you're watching it just imagine if Todd were black, the outrage we'd be hearing:
In what I can only describe as the reverse of the trickle down theory, the Republicans get to know their Mama Grizzly a bit better, more and more of them hop on the Not Fit to Lead bus. As GOP opposition to her grows, establishment conservatives are doing their best to put the brakes on the Palin crazy train.
The idea of divine right died out a long time ago, when god fled the political scene, only to be resurrected in the New World and in a new century with George W. Bush's claim that God - not the American people - chose him to lead America. Then there is the Bush crusade against terrorism, and yet nobody epitomizes the spirit of the past better than former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin.
The dictionary definition of feminism is "the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men." In no way do you stand for that, Sarah. In no way have you ever worked toward these goals as an elected official. In no way do you use your celebrity to accomplish these goals or even raise awareness about the inequities.
Sarah Palin was on Fox News' Freedom Watch yesterday with Andrew Napolitano (the "Judge") to discuss the utter badness of Obama's stimulus package (not to be confused or repudiated with his "cajones", people---keep it clean, we leave the vulgar stuff to the Sister Sarah). So Sarah was tossin' around those buzz words like "feds bribin' the states" and she was feelin' pretty good. Sarah loves being the attack dog and it looked like she was in her element.....Until The Judge asked her if she was upset about the Bush stimulus package and TARP. This is where poor Sarah teetered and fell right off her talking points into the great abyss of Things She Doesn't Understand.
Before Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Karen Handel conceded today, Georgia Republican Representative Jack Kingston was on the radio show "America's Morning News" with John McCaslin & Amy Holmes when he expressed his displeasure with Sarah Palin sticking her nose into Republican primaries all over the country, and said he thought Georgians would be "doin' their own thing". Kingston prefers Palin "butt out" of Georgia politics and urges Republicans to "rethink Palin as someone who shoots from the hip."
Yet another Palin loss in Georgia...... The media dubbed "GOP kingmaker", huh? More like a Mama Grizzly slinking away with her tail between her legs. Karen Handel, the Palin endorsed and pushed GOP Georgia Governor candidate, conceded today after losing to primary opponent Nathan Deal, who was endorsed by Mitt Romney.
According to Variety, Levi Johnston is following his former would be mother in law into both politics and reality TV. Johnston will be running for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and his campaign will be possibly accompanied by a reality television show titled "Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office."
Sarah Palin is a petty, mean girl not fit for prime time. It doesn't matter if she's just a celebrity, even successful celebrities know better than to behave like this. But in Palin's case it's worse, because Palin is the person the Republican Party is seriously touting as their Presidential candidate in 2012. Over the weekend, Palin dipped a bedazzled toe into a nonsensical and stupid fight with Kathleen Gustafson, a schoolteacher.
On August 27, 2008, Palin signed AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act) into law awarding TransCanada 500 million dollars and a license to build and operate the $26-billion pipeline to transport natural gas from the North Slope. A license. That's all. The state will issued a license to Canadian energy company, TransCanada, and will pay it up to $500 million as an incentive to someday build this project. If the project isn't built, the state could be beholden to TransCanada for treble damages.
