The press fawned over Sarah Palin when she arrived at last night's Time 100 Gala, stepping over themselves to get a photo of the gal who refused to speak to them until they show "deference" to her as she was campaigning to be Vice President of America and has not yet held a press conference or taken unscreened questions from the press. Palin quoted Thomas Jefferson, whose prophetic quotes suggest he saw Palin coming.
A weekly round up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus: This week, Republicans were freaked out over good news about the economy (say it ain’t so, Joe!) so in their ever impressive attempt to "take back their country", they did what all Real Americans do -- they focused on animals. Yes, from suggesting we barter chickens for healthcare to comparing illegal immigrants to dogs,it's been a wild GOP ride this week. Please no comments on the disturbing Freudian slips of the party of Repression and Regression. This is tough enough.
Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol both testified at the email hacking trial of David Kernall, which found him guilty of 2 out of 4 charges. The trial lasted just two days. In reporting the verdict this evening, Fox revealed, "Bristol Palin said she was distressed to find pictures of her newborn son in the public eye after her mother's e-mail was hacked." But Bristol's baby supposedly wasn't born until December of 2009.
The false narrative continues as Steve Schmidt (aka, the Bullet) reveals Palin’s debate answers were memorized and scripted. What’s the difference between a Palin debate and a movie? Not much apparently. Sure, American politicians sell a cult of personality, but must it be so disingenuous as to include main characters like W and Palin? Can’t the GOP find someone who can read? Aren’t candidates supposed to have some ideas, something they stand for and shouldn’t they be able to discuss that topic without memorizing answers?
Unwilling to let any chance for more publicity via her specialty of moral poutrage sprinkled over Dim-Sum pass her by, Sarah Palin takes to her facebook page to decry the Pentagon's decision yesterday to dis-invite Franklin Graham from National Prayer Day. In doing so, Palin demonstrates yet again how little she thinks/knows of the law, inviting satire as the only possible rebuttal available to all reading citizens.
Scott Brown (R-MA) appeared on NBC-TV's "Today" show this morning. Brown made his break with the Tea Party final by announcing he would support Mitt Romney over Tea Party darling Sarah Palin, dashing the hopes of many Tea Partiers who had fantasies of a Palin/Brown ticket in 2012. The support of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin's endorsement are assumed to be responsible for getting Brown his seat in the special election in January of this year.
Vice President Joe Biden was on "The View" this morning. Elizabeth Hasslebeck asked Biden if he thought Palin posed a threat for 2012. Biden didn't seem too worried about Palin as a contender, but he did say, "I say this and people look at me like I'm kidding, I like her," which is politico speak for she can't win.
Palin's latest scandal, "Shreddergate", turned serious and ugly when Palin fans started threatening State Senator Yee and President Obama. These threats are now being investigated by the Secret Service (due to threatening references to the President) as well as the California Highway Patrol.
Lest you think that the Palin 2008 rallies of hate were an anomaly, Palin fans are now attacking Senator Yee, who called for an investigation of Stanislaus State after University administrators refused to supply Palin's speaking contract, claiming they didn't have it. The rage, hatred, bigotry and violence that Palin fans have put on display here has a goal: to silence the Senator. In other words, this is political terrorism.
When she's not inciting violence, GOP 2012 front-runner Sarah Palin is selling a manifestly incorrect distortion of the constitution, which she invariably gets mixed up with both The Pledge of Allegiance and the song, "America the Beautiful". Her goal is to create a Christian Nation, where the bible has dominion over the law.
Palin's controversial speech at Cal State University leads to Shredder Gate scandal. State Senator Yee (D-Ca) gave a press conference today regarding Shredder Gate. Not only did the university deny they had the records, but later claimed that they could not release the Palin contract due to a rider specifying privacy in Palin's contract.
It kinda looks like she quit to line her pockets. So, I guess it wasn't all about "progressin' Alaska". But ya' know, money isn't everything. A girl's gotta have values, also too. And helpin' us understand HRH's "common sense conservative values" is her contract with the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation, where Palin is scheduled to "speak" at a June 25 gala hosted by the foundation to mark the university's 50th anniversary. You probably guessed by now that there's more to this story, as hypocrisy, cover-ups and scandal are just par for the course for the Conservative darling.
Sarah pimped for the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America convention today. The convention runs April 6-8 at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip. The strip? Did anyone call Steele! Oh, I kid. I kid. This is all legal and family-ish. Except for the booze and evangelical thing, but as the Republicans have been trying so hard to demonstrate, no one is perfect. Thing is, I guess no one gave her any palm notes before she spoke, cuz the ex-candidate-for-something-turned-reality-TV-bomb apparently thought she was at a political rally.
Palin Demands RNC Take Her Name Off of Fundraisers
It seems Sister Sarah is too pristine to associate with the likes of the RNC (bondage themes aside, as she remains their Mistress of Scold). And while many are saying this is a bad move on her part, it’s actually more of the same quite successful tactics she has been using to get elected since she started her political career with around 600 votes back in Wasilla.
Sarah Palin’s ties with the AIP (which itself has strong ties with white supremacists groups, the same groups the Secret Service blamed for the death threats against candidate Obama) should have been a warning about what kind of person she was, but the media were charmed by her folksy mom image. And while Americans finally decided she was unqualified to be Vice President, they never got a glimpse of the real Sarah. The real Sarah is a dangerous extremist. And she has the past to prove it.
McCain is everywhere this post-healthcare reform passage morning. McCain is apparently feelin’ rather badly for himself and his party, as his main message today is “Everything we did wrong in the last year, we’re going to do more of! We’re going to run on repealing healthcare reform. We’re not going to be a part of any solutions. And lastly, I am bringing Palin back for another Hail Mary next week.”
The half-term governor of Alaska who quit mid-term due to an inability to get her agenda passed and indeed, even her own Attorney General nominated (a first in Alaska), strikes out at Obama, calling him “inexperienced” and unable to get a bi-partisan bill due to his “lack of management experience."
Hagiographer, Fox News "commentator", and palm reader Sarah Palin has been desperately pitching her reality TV series to the major networks, but it seems the Big Boys have better things to do with their primetime air then follow a half-term former quitter around Alaska as she pretends to be folksy and outdoorsy.
One of the few top aides who were still with Sarah Palin announced her resignation today. Palin has a long history of tossing her biggest supporters under the Palin Bus, making sure to leave their reputation in tatters as the bus rolls over them in its relentlessly ambitious journey to her self-described God-mandated “destiny” as President.
Sarah Palin’s use of Family Guy as her latest ploy for attention is perfectly ironic because she uses her outrage against prominent liberals, while giving conservatives a pass on the very same issue. While liberals fight the rights of minorities, Palin is busy exploiting her own child with Down’s Syndrome while calling him a retard.
