Palin and the “R-word”

February 10, 2010

I can’t do it any better than Lewis Black:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

R-word aside, what’s most interesting about this debate is how Limbaugh said something against FoxNews corespondent Sarah Palin, essentially ridiculing her for making this such a big deal. What will this mean to the right, who love them some Palin and Limbaugh? More division. Exactly what the party needs.

Sarah Palin’s Version of Vintage-1800’s Style?

January 25, 2010

Sarah! You know I love you, but I just have to ask, what were you thinking? I mean, if you want people to take you seriously, looking like someone from Little House on the Prairie isn’t the way to do it.  As a self-proclaimed somewhat stylish fashionista myself (just ask my friends) I hate to admit that I now question your judgement  based solely on THAT choice of do. And PS, what did you do to your stylist to make her/him hate you so much?  Take my advice, and please get a new one, after all image is everything. God forbid you give the looney left another reason to criticize.

A Letter to Republicans

December 2, 2009

Dear Republicans,

I’ve heard your complaints and now I wish to address them one by one.

1. Obama never said the word “Victory.” That’s because there is no such thing as a victory in what we’re doing. We’re fighting the terrorists, not the country. And as I said in my post last night, there is no way to weed out every single terrorist. The military knows it, the President knows it. I’m surprised so many of you don’t.

Everyone was so enraged about not using “Victory,” I’m sure some pundit put it  in your heads that it should be said, but do me a favor, and imagine what a VICTORY looks like. Think about WWII, think about celebration and patting ourselves on the back.

Now think about the work we’re doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. What does a victory look like to you? Maybe you see life as a movie, that one Afghan who wears a symbol of terrorism, runs down a crowded dusty street as our GI Joe tries to catch up. There are a few moments when we all wonder, will this last terrorist escape?!?! Then Joe springs out of the dust to catch this man. Joe spouts off a wise crack before the streets erupt with cheering and US flag waving. All the Afghans cry and laugh and cheer because victory has finally arrived!

This is not what Afghanistan is about. In order to leave, we have to trust them with their own government. It will not be so much a victory, which implies one’s dominance over the other, but a returning to the people something that was already theirs.

2. Obama “dithered” I love this word, but its just not true. MSNBC fact checker (don’t skip this part because its MSNBC):

OBAMA: “Let me be clear: there has never been an option before me that called for troop deployments before 2010, so there has been no delay or denial of resources necessary for the conduct of the war.”

THE FACTS: He is correct, despite being accused by former Vice President Dick Cheney of dithering by taking the autumn to review options for Afghanistan.

Dick Cheney is only hurting the Republican party. Not a single democrat is going to vote for him, he’s one of the most unlikeable people ever, he shot a man in the face. Republicans, you need to do something to shut him up. He’s not helping.

3. The money issue, which we’re just going to have to disagree on. If you want to know what I think, I can post it later.

4. The withdrawal date, which McCain and Palin (together at last!) both criticized. McCain said “that gives the wrong impression to our friends, it’s the wrong impression to give our enemies.” Sometimes I think you guys, republicans, want to just go ahead and take over Afghanistan, claim it for our own. The truth is, we have to leave someday, we can not stay there forever. It might not be 2011, but that is the goal. And the goal may have to be moved up or back, only time will tell, but we’re looking at 10 years. 10. And you guys just want more and more.

And if you guys believe that we are under a time frame of 12 months to win, if you’re using that number to keep on saying he dithered, how can you say you actually need more that 18? Pick a side and stick to it.

I can’t address fully 5. fewer troops than were asked for and 6. Address at Westpoint, but I will say for 5, McCrystal said it was enough and 6, I loved watching him look the troops that probably will be deployed in the eye and tell them what will happen to them. What their future will be.


Hanna’s Hotties and Notties- Katie Couric vs. Sarah Palin

November 27, 2009

Katie Couric vs. Sarah Palin

Well it’s been an interesting chain of events since the infamous interview between these two women. And for one, her career seems to be taking off. The other, seems to be slam-crashing down around her.

Oh Ms. Couric, how far you’ve fallen since the easy days on NBC’s Today Show. Quite a journey since signing the gigantic contract to become the first female solo primetime anchor of CBS News. What was your price tag again? Oh yeah, 15 million a year!  Now I know you are supposed to be a real journalist an all, you know non-biased with a little integrity, but we saw the real you during that interview where you skewered Palin with a contempt only an elite-y, liberal, feminist can muster. But I have to say you have finally gotten yours.

First of all there’s this little ditty totally exposing your liberal partisan agenda on healthcare:

Second, there’s your ratings. CBS has hit all time lows since you have been in the anchor chair. And your brilliant news network consistently remains in LAST place. But kudos to you! That 15 mil means you’re the best no matter what, right?

And then finally there’s the release of these pictures. None of which I know will ever grace the cover of Newsweek or be shown on MSNBC  as they mock you. So with all the grief Palin has endured over her looks, I have to admit I have gotten quite a bit of enjoyment out of the discovery of your totally nottie moves on the dance floor.

 The rest of these gems can be explored on Jim Treacher’s blog, and his poem, unlike yours Katie, is hilarious.  And now all I can say to you is “stay classy” Ms. Nottie, and good luck with the whole real, serious journalist thing now!

 On the other hand, how have things worked out for Sarah Palin since that dreadful interview? Well despite all the negative media attention, she has still managed to give Oprah her biggest ratings in two years, fired up the conservative base without the help of the media, and oh yeah, she’s sold how many books in a week, Katie? What was that? Oh yeah, 700,000! A figure I’m sure the New York  Times grudgingly admits to.  And with the amount of people turning out by the thousands to her book signings, I’m sure Ms. Palin won’t be going anywhere any time soon. I’m not sure what the future holds for Sarah Palin, but I can say that for right now at least, she’s a hottie hockey-mom in lipstick you betcha, and in a major way.

My Thanksgiving Essentials

November 24, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Most of this week’s essential events include turkey, football, good friends, and shopping but there are 2 releases I’m looking forward to: Adam Lambert’s new CD (out Tuesday) and The Road (out Wednesday.)

But it’s that time of the year for me to give thanks to the people that matter most:

Lady Gaga, I want to thank you first for this. No one will ever wear a mane the same way again.

Thanks a lot Kanye for propelling Taylor Swift into the position of America’s sweetheart, ensuring her success for years to come.

Black Eyed Peas, Thank you for your song “Boom Boom Pow.” It truly proved, once and for all, that no one cares about lyrics.

Will Ferrell, or should I say, W. thanks for sharing this story:

Thank you Tina Fey for writing a show that stars you as a loser, completely inept with relationships or life. It makes the show so funny.

Thanks 500 Days of Summer for one of the best dance sequences ever:

Bill Murray, thank you for putting in that cameo.

And most importantly, thank you Sarah Palin for distracting the Republican party from finding a viable candidate for 2012.


MSNBC Disgustoids Lying About Sarah Again- So, Where’s Jon Stewart?

November 13, 2009

I saw this video on Hot Air of Sarah Palin, and once again am floored by the absolute disgusting treatment of her, even though at this point, I shouldn’t be surprised. Whatever your personal feelings are about the former governor, you have to agree that the level of harassment and disrespect by the media towards her has hit catastrophic proportions. And this video is no different. The treatment of her is dishonest, disgraceful, and of course it’s a horrible double standard. For example, just last week Hannity aired incorrect footage of the Anti-Health Care rally that took place in Washington DC.  Jon Stewart immediately pointed it out, which he should, and  Hannity did the right thing and apologized, which HE should.  So where’s this going? In this appalling MSNBC video, they show doctored pictures of Sarah Palin’s head on other female’s bodies wearing very little clothing while they proceed to poke fun of her and berate her. So where’s John Stewart on this one I wonder? And will MSNBC apologize for the use of its disparaging pictures? Heh, what do you think?

Let the Spinning Start

November 5, 2009

cropped-012.jpg

I love how predictable the liberals are becoming. Much was said about the  highly publicized and hotly contested race for NY’s 23rd district between the third party, totally unknown canditate, Doug Hoffman and the liberal Bill Owens.  Many key conservatives come out in support of Hoffman, including Fred Thompson, Rush Limbaugh, and even Sarah Palin. Even by overcoming seemingly impossible odds, Hoffman managed to oust the RINO Republican Dede Scazzafava from the race despite relative anonymity and no money. But in the end, Hoffman lost to the democrat by three points, and I guess this was to be expected. It would have taken an act of God for the quiet, inhibited Hoffman to win even with the support of the likes of Limbaugh and Palin.

But how quickly the liberals begin to spin their wordy webs; touting the loss of Hoffman as another loss for Palin, yet another failure. This was a loss of the Tea Party movement, a supposed slap in the face of true conservatism everywhere. The Republican party is in deep turmoil, and on and on.

Well, I for one, couldn’t more vehemently disagree. This race is a resounding message to both Blue Dogs and RINOS everywhere, that if you don’t get back to your fiscally conservative roots, and stand against big taxes and big government, we the people will VOTE YOU OUT! 2010 is right around the corner, and if our congressmen and women do not get their acts together soon, I have a feeling there is a major upheaval coming. And I can’t wait.
