I got that from the Os who made the lede their headline
The quote from the article follows
This is it. This is the last time I’m going to write the name Sarah Palin until she does something truly newsworthy, like declare herself a candidate for the presidency. Until then, I will no longer take part in the left’s obsessive-compulsive fascination with her, which is both unhealthy and counterproductive.
She’s the Zsa Zsa Gabor of American politics. She once did something noteworthy, but she’s now just famous for being famous.
… Yet the left continues to elevate her every utterance so that they can mock and deride her. The problem is that this strategy continues to backfire. The more the left tries to paint her as one of the “Mean Girls,” the more the right sees her as “Erin Brockovich.”
Of course, speaking of elevation, Blow (what an appropriate name), in his headline, makes her to be Voldemort
In another funny twist, the Os are angered by this
1. He blames it all on the left’s ” obsession” with her?
What is he, afraid Scarborough won’t invite him back to his show?
then they go right back to …bashing Palin.
I have some news for the “left”. Just as the xenophobic hatred of France was generated – or at least first aired by W, the “Hate Palin” mania comes directly from Obama – his campaign and then carried on by the Os.
It was Obama himself unable to restrain himself from demeaning her from the start. He started calling her a mayor”, a pig” and talked of her obsessively. By the time his handlers prevailed and made him stay out of this all the misogynists missing the Hillary Bone were redirected against yet another woman outsider trying to break in the power circle.Some of the feminists saw their way in the loyalty circle (and out of the PUMA identification) by jumping on the melee
So, the Bush hatred was quickly poured into Hillary Hatred, then into Palin Hatred.
One might recall hos his aides could barely contain him from such beautiful gaffes like “lipstick on a pig” and “I have more executive experience than her, because I ran my campaign which has a budget ten times bigger than Alaska”
Fresh for the successful unleashing of sexism in the primaries, Obama couldn’t resist brushing his shoulders again.
And his acolytes, who are starting to be ashamed of their blind following, are not quite lucid enough to realize where they got their “one hour of hate” from.
The New York Times is only continuing its role of Obama camapaign arm (and White House official propaganda organ).
They will transition seamlessly into Jeb’s, just like they did from W to Obama.
And while I know it will be Jeb riding to victory on the bipartisan wave of sexism in 2012, I can’t help but be amused as the fauxgressives willful amnesia.
Palin has become this magnificent obsession that they are all helpless to fight. (I am betting that Obama could use a Palin patch too)
Unlike Hillary, being a R, Palin will have at least some friendly media too and she will thrive. Until Jeb will be installed that is..
A few days ago I posted Babs beautiful mind’s farts in Sarah’s general direction
“I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful,” Barbara Bush said. “And she’s very happy in Alaska, and I hope she’ll stay there.”
Now, it’s Palin’s turn and I must say I like her answer. I think Al Gore and John Kerry can also appreciate it:
Said Palin: “I think the majority of Americans don’t want to put up with the blue bloods. And I say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes. The blue bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition to pick and choose the winners.”
I would have used democracy instead of competition, but the gist is right on the money.
In related news, Obama gives an answer that reminded me of W and Bin Laden
That’s a relief.
Now I can go to bed.
It was hard to find non-Woods stories today as everything from Stars and Stripes to the Wall Street Journal is pretty much taken. Still:
In Nevada they are covering Obama’s visit to stomp for Reid
Doubt, caution meet President Obama’s foreclosure plan
Kaiser said measures such as Obama’s plan “can help stop the bleeding for now, but for there to be a true ‘recovery’ in the housing market, we will absolutely have to see more jobs being created than we currently are.
In Indiana the scramble to fill Bayh seat continues. One candidate who missed the headline switches to Libertarian, another declines the offer – would rather be governor
NY Times puts the “retard card” story on page one
“I was making fun of Sarah Palin, but not her son.”
because mothers of Down syndrome babies are so much funnier….
More hilarious WaPo writing in my next entry
I first used that headline – borrowed actually from some rabid B0bot here.
Can they go beyond sexism?
YES, they can!
I was really trying to stay away from the topic – in part because of the conundrum myiq described very well here
Lately we have had a few self-appointed guardians of liberalism and feminism declare we should have our credentials revoked because we are cheerleaders for Sarah Palin. I guess they’re correct, but only if you define “cheerleading” as “speaking out against the lynch mob.”
So, I had to don my cheerleader outfit when I saw the number 1 thread in B0botland with over 300 votes and 200 comments so far
“Family Guy” Actress with Down Syndrome Puts Palin in Her Place
It all started with defending Rahm Emanuel for calling liberals retards. Somehow, these people forgot how angry they were at the time
Palin aside, thanks a f’ing s*&tload Rahm – your words not withstanding, your loyaly is touching and brings tears to my f’ing retarded eyes.
Now it’s all about paying Palin back for agreeing with them.
With the Family guy joke about Chris dating a young woman with Down Syndrome who informs him that she is the daughter of the governor of Alaska – they found their in. Just like right wingers thought of themselves as non-mysogynists and non-racists because they had Condoleeza Rice, so do B0bots feel entitle to mock Palin’s baby, because they now have their own retard in their camp
Did Palin know that the actor who provided the voice for Chris’ date was Andrea Friedman, a relatively successful performer who happens to have Down Syndrome? Friedman has appeared on “Saving Grace,” “Law & Order,” “ER,” and “Life Goes On,” among other television shows.
See? She had Down syndrome, it’s all right to say these things:
In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes.
Ha!ha!Ha! Boo to trig sister to say she is hurt!
I suppose that Obama’s children as well as all the other politician children attending political events are OK – maybe because are not carried around like a loaf of French bread.
Only one of the posters dare point the obvious
OK I’m gonna get flamed but
As much as I agree with what she says (I HATE how Palin uses that baby like a prop!) I hang around a lot of DS teens and I can’t imagine any of them being that critical — it sounds like this is what the parents want to say. I can’t picture any of my DS friends saying “the way she carries that kid around like a loaf of bread!” the comparison….bread and baby, I just don’t see them equating that, or being that critical of somebody else.
Down thread, someone posts the response to this – editorializing
But already the C4P website is badmouthing brave Andrea
In fact there’s no badmouthing, but a very sensible response – lack of punctuation notwithstanding
in any event what does the friedman letter prove no matter who wrote it. only one family was being made fun of in the cartoon and that was the palin family. now if the friedman family was made fun of in the same way then i would care what they thought but until then i would rather hear from bristol and what she thought.
In no way can someone who offended set things straight – even if she has the same affliction that was part of the joke.
As of the B0bots eating this story up, I guess there’s not much satisfaction to be had on the Chosen One front, so hatred must be unleashed.
Even if they “won”. Even if Palin is not running for anything at the present time. All this because they cannot admit they voted for the wrong guy. So much frustration, so few channels to release it
But I know what gives this thread over 300 thumbs up. It’s the memory of this photo with the yet to be acceptable cries of “Get thee back to the kitchen”
how do I know this for a fact? I just found this cartoon in B0botland
As Newsweek is put in the hot seat for their blatant sexism. I thought I might remind people who gave the cues for the tone on women opponents last election.
I must say I was glad to see Palin making the point herself, when referring to Newsweek
“out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now.”
Although yesterday, reading a live blog of Oprah from “obsess much”-Sullivan, he noted that Oprah got Palin to admit that Obama defended her. From what?
Back to Newsweek though: to think she didn’t even see their website last week, where they posted the internet doctored photo of her with a shotgun in flag bikini.
There are a lot of legitimate reasons to criticize Sarah Palin, her new book, and her policies, but you don’t have to stoop to sexism to do it. Newsweek‘s November 23 issue, however, does just that by publishing on its cover a photo of Palin in short running shorts and a fitted top, leaning against the American flag.
They actually took the opportunity to finally note what was done to Hillary
With regard to Palin, Media Matters documented the sexist treatment both Palin and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received throughout the 2008 campaign.
And to make their point better….they reproduce the “legs” and “slutty schoolgirl” doll photos Newsweek published inside the article. Yeah, we get it.
The only person who doesn’t is Newsweek editor John Meecham who responds
“We chose the most interesting image available to us to illustrate the theme of the cover, which is what we always try to do. We apply the same test to photographs of any public figure, male or female: does the image convey what we are saying? That is a gender-neutral standard.”
“interesting” to whom? And what are they really saying that needs to be conveyed with this?
That they can’t look past the body parts?
Meanwhile, beyond Newsweek, pundits are still longing for that chick fight they’ve been denied in the primaries as Cinie notes.
