Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You on Your Way Out

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC.

I don’t know anything about Mr. Bashir or his upbringing. But how could anyone, ANYONE, say such vile and offensive things on live television just because they disagree with someone’s politics? It’s just another example of how low liberals will stoop to get their way.

He doesn’t know how lucky he is that Todd didn’t come find him and teach him some manners.

“An Embarrassment For Legacy Media”

Leave it to the Brits to cover something the American press refuse to acknowledge.

Toby Harnden of The Telegraph notes

The trove of more than 13,000 emails detailing almost every aspect of Sarah Palin’s governorship of Alaska, released late on Friday, paints a picture of her as an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.

One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.

If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as “an embarrassment for legacy media”.

In another amazing feat of observation, Mr. Harnden also sums up nicely the American media’s obsession with Palin.

She is, however, viewed with a kind of horrified fascination by many in the media, who faithfully records everything she says and does while at the same time decrying her as ignorant and even evil.

How does he do it? He also nails the media projected image of Sarah:

…hardened into one of a brittle, even paranoid, politician who seethes with resentment, feels aggrieved and entitled and is intent on pursuing celebrity even at the expense of her family.

Mrs Palin as a person has become so remote that it is hard to assess how much, if any, of that widely-held caricature has a basis in truth. The email release could mark the end of a chapter of what conservatives have termed “Palin Derangement Syndrome”. Her enemies in the media appear to have overplayed their hand.

Get that? Seethes with resentment… aggrievedentitled… pursues celebrity… (gasp!) at the expense of her fam-i-ly! Spout that with your finest Shakespearean accent along with your best Richard III squint and wobble.

C’mon fellas, there’s got to be at least one misspelled word in all those emails. Get on the stick there – you’ve got to report something negative!

By the way, I won’t even bring up the fact that while the LSM (Lame Stream Media) wets themselves over these emails, the LA Times still refuses to release a 2008 video of Obama toasting Rashid Khalidi, a former Palestinan operative. Read the rest and follow the links at Gateway Pundit. It will make your skin crawl.

What IS Sarah Palin Up To?

I think her bus tour is brilliant. So does Ed and Allah at Hot Air and Michelle M.

Elizabeth, no so much.

If Palin wants to ride all over the country, building momentum and interest, and possibly make an important announcement at the time and place of her choosing, more power to her. For too long candidates and lawmakers have kow-towed to the press. Now that we know they have a predisposition to licking jack boots, they deserve some of their own medicine. Besides watching this is more entertaining that what the other GOP hopefuls manage to sputter out.

A summer bus tour across America. What a marvelous idea. And timely, too, since she doesn’t need papers. Yet.

Capt. Vasili Borodin: I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck… maybe even a “recreational vehicle.” And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?
Captain Ramius: I suppose.
Capt. Vasili Borodin: No papers?
Captain Ramius: No papers, state to state.

Right on Schedule

The death threats against Sarah Palin have increased, significantly. Golly gee, you could have set your watch on it.

It’s all imploding on the loony left, and they know it. The truth will always be brought to light and they, being the despisers of truth, are learning that lesson in a hard way.

No, there is nothing useful to be gained by such finger-pointing and scapegoating. Rather, we need only point out the admonition of the old hymn that reminds us that if we step off the Solid Rock, “all other ground is sinking sand.” Truth endures, and facts are stubborn things.

Remember who, above all, has coursened the conversation.

Having used divisiveness to push through Obamacare and other expansions of government, Obama now wants everyone to come together and lower the volume.

That’s fine. But it should not affect our policy goals one iota, or the vigor with which we seek to roll back some of the mistakes of the past two years.

And in a somewhat delightful surprise, Palin gets a defender from an unlikely corner.

He [Alan-Dershowitz] showed more guts than many in the republican establishment in defending Palin. Republican party has stayed largely silent when an innocent woman was being tarnished. It speaks volumes to me.

AP Soils Itself – Shame On Them

Look at this picture. (Photos via Free Republic)

The AP and the usual haters are soiling themselves collectively, crowing that the evil, wicked, dispicable Sarah Palin took a hairdresser with her on her recent trip to Haiti. She was visiting the area as part of the humanitarian effort by Rev. Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse. Instead of highlighting the good work being done there, AP chooses instead to show its backside, ginning up a scandal where there is none.

The same photographer that took the picture above, also took this picture.

Notice the young woman, second from the right. Notice her clothing, scarf and hairstyle. Compare it to the first picture. Isn’t that the same woman, the one fixing Palin’s hair? But wait … most of America should recognize this young woman by now … it’s Bristol, Sarah’s daughter. Suddenly you see the first picture in a different light, don’t you? Instead of a hairstylist, it’s a daughter securing a pin on her mother’s head.

Nothing is too much of a stretch for the PalinH8rs. Shame on you. And just like MSNBC, it’s no wonder your credibility is shot.

Slime That Won’t Stick

(h/t Gateway Pundit)

You know, to a lunatic pseudo-journalist, these conservative women all look alike. I won’t justify a link to the Vanity Fair hit-piece on Sarah Palin, you can go read it yourself. However, Dr. Gina Louden, the woman the reporter assumed to be the Palin’s nanny has an excellent and, ahem, pointed rebuttal up at Big Government. Owww, that’s gonna leave a mark.

But it is Palin’s persistent encouragement of the prayer warriors that most clearly reveals her worldview: she is good, her opponents are evil, and the war is on.” Agreed. She is good, her opponents are evil, and the war is on!

One more thing among your errors: “the boy” in the excerpted quote above, was not Trig Palin. That was my Samuel, also a beautiful boy with Down syndrome. No “nanny whisk(ed) the boy away.” I am his mother. I took my son, Samuel from Sarah before she went on stage. I told Mr. Gross that fact, but he didn’t let that divert him from his pathetic narrative.

That is not journalism. That is just gross.

Evidently things must be getting pretty slow over at Vanity Fair, since they just make stuff up out of whole cloth now. I thought that was the real “Toilet Bowl Media’s” job.

In the meantime, Stacy McCain is cavorting about up in Alaska after the Joe Miller victory. After a meeting with the First Dude and his snowmobile, he had energy enough to give gross Mr. Gross some tips on how to write a real Palin hit-piece. That Stacy, always so generous with advice.

We should all wear goggles and plastic suits November 2-3. Newsrooms and campaign offices around America will resemble tandem Gallagher concerts – like fireworks on Independence Day.

Back to the Salt Mines

Seems every time I go out of town, things go to hell in a hand-basket. Let’s see if we can get this old boat cranked back up…

Real news.

“Historically illiterate.”

The Rep. Hank Johnson Segregated Forum, and you know who is NOT invited. [UPDATE: More here]

“Everything that I know and love is at risk.”

Guatamala’s hole to China

“He may win the DADT battle, but he will lose the war.”

The Gore’s Blame Bush for their separation, but not before buying a huge carbon footprint beach house.

“Obama’s true agenda is so insidious that even his inability to handle a crisis serves his greater strategy.”

For Once I Agree With Jerry Springer

When liberals put down Sarah Palin it makes them look like snobs. Yes, out of the mouth of The Springmeister himself:

“Well, she’s incredibly charismatic. Her politics are different than mine. But I don’t belittle her. She represents a significant segment of America.

It might not be the majority, but certainly a significant segment of America that lives her lifestyle and believes as she does. And therefore, I can disagree with her without making fun of her. And for those of us who are more liberal, we step on dangerous ground when we try to belittle her, or belittle her fundamentalism, or religion or stuff like that, saying you know she is backwoods or stuff like that. That is how liberals come across as elitists or snobs.”

Yep.

Quote of the Day

There is Great Britain. The him is Andrew Sullivan. The quote is classic Carol, of No Sheeples Here.

Perhaps surgeons there can give him the uterus he so desperately craves.

Now It’s Palin in the Bunker

I can’t get enough of this clip…it keeps on giving and giving and giving (double-whammy hat-tips to Smitty).

“Audacity of dopes.”

Heh.

The Screaming Chickens Edition

One of the Super Bowl ads really stuck in my brain, even through this morning, wondering what subliminal messages it stirred.

Then, “Eureka!” What do the screaming chickens remind you of? How about Democrats? Liberals? “Progressives?” The media snobs?

Who hasn’t written something on their hand? A quick note, a phone number, last minute item needed from the market, something you wanted to remember for longer than five minutes? According to our betters, it’s very low class. The media’s collective head is exploding (queue the screaming chickens) over a few notes. Fausta points out:

By the way, Palin delivered a 45-minute speech. Those seven words were her “notes”.

She’s not even an elected official now.

The Commander in Chief of the United States has a teleprompter for every word and can’t even pronounce “corpsman” correctly. [Emphasis Admin]

Heh. I got your crib notes, right here…

Image by No Sheeples Here.

Elitist journalists, they hate everyone but who they see in the mirror. (h/t The Other McCain) Cut from the same cloth as the purveyors of histrionics over the Pam & Tim Tebow ad, they stomp, scream and smear who dare to disagree with their lofty opinions. My, don’t they look silly now? (Time for more screaming chickens)

That — that — was the ad that caused the pro-abortion crowd to go into a frenzy of censorship advocacy, character assassination, and mask-slipping demonization of mothers who dare choose life over death for their unborn children.

In one fell swoop, Focus on the Family and the Tebows exposed the real pro-abortion left to a larger audience than, perhaps, had ever seen them in their natural state: as abortion-loving autocrats who despised Choice almost as much as (infant) life itself — all without really having to do anything.

Brilliant.

Scott Brown is sworn in and hell Washington freezes over. RFK Jr got it all wrong. At least there is a silver-lining – the federal government will be closed again tomorrow. Two days in a row where they haven’t been able to pick our pockets.

Out of all those czars Obama has appointed, isn’t there one for Fact-Checking The Speeches? Read this and be shocked, just shocked, that Obama had his facts wrong again.

And finally, John Murtha passed away today after developing complications from surgery. Prayers for his family are in order. He’s entitled to a military funeral as a Marine veteran, but after all he’s done to the Corps would it be a mockery? And true to form, just like with Teddy, he’s not even cold yet and the Democrats are using his death as propaganda for pushing their failing ObamaCare.

Screaming chickens. Scream, scream, scream, you crazy chickens. Change is coming.

Too Good to Check

Pictures tell stories, don’t they?

Sarah Palin’s Uterus, Really

Finally, the object of Andrew Sullivan’s affection SPEAKS. (h/t Joy)

Never is the uterus so popular as when it can be wielded as a partisan tool.

Abby? Abby Who? Abby-Normal….

Just read it.

You are a dope-smoking, contagion-spreading menace to society, Andrew Sullivan, and you ought to be immediately deported. I think even Tom Tancredo, Pat Buchanan and Peter Brimelow would agree that your deportation is a matter of national security far more important than sending ICE to hassle a few hundred illegal Mexican poultry-plant workers in North Carolina.

All because he’s got this thang about a girl named Sarah

Sarah Palinator

Lance, The Troglopundit, is having a little automotivator fun in his troglodyte cave. Check out my entry (also shown below) and all the others. Lance also has a link where you can make your very own!

Sarah Panlinator

And as I challenged there, “double points if you can tell me who actually said the quote below the title.” C’mon folks, even my boy knows the source of that quote.

Melissa notes that Sarah is just such an old has-been. Such a has-been, in fact, her yet-unpublished book, Going Rogue, shot to Amazon #1 with days of the publishing date being announced. And that’s just pre-orders, folks. Andrew Sullivan’s virtual uterus is going to explode on this one. Yeah, she’s such old news.

Not.
