TLP: Maybe That's Not What They Meant By 'Boob'

Saturday, June 12, 2010 , , , 12 Comments

I guess if we really want to know if Sarah Palin got a boob job, we should ask Joe McGinniss, seeing as how he's peeking over the fence and all up there in Wasilla. Oh well, Greta van Susteren took care of it, nearly motorboating the former governor to find out.

The Huffington Post pulled the clip so you don't have to:

The money quote:
"First, Greta, you know why we love you? Because you're not afraid to ask the questions and I gotta respect you for asking that question because I know that "Boobgate" is all over the Internet right now because there are a lot of, I guess, bored idle bloggers and reporters with nothing else to talk about. And I think some of those folks do, they need to perhaps grab a shovel, go down to the Gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a whale or something instead of reporting on such stupid things like that."

First, Sarah, you know why we love you? Because you're not afraid to answer the questions about such stupid things as that. Funny, you didn't seem quite so eager to answer Katie Couric's questions.

And second, I may be lazy, but I've listened to the end of that quote more than a few times and I can't tell whether she said "whale" or "well" ...

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Intellectual Snobbery at it's finest.

What's your interest in her? If you are a Democratic Party operative and part of the DC (or Sacramento) machine I understand, she's perceived as a mortal threat to the nest. As is any outstanding Republican (as opposed to Hastert, Bohener types). **

What pray tell is your awe inspiring resume that allows you to look down on her? You're in the media? Are you kidding?

What public office have you been elected to or run? Can you cut it on your local PTA?

I saw the interview, it appeared that Sustern asked that question directly on impulse, Palin actually took what appeared to be a surprise quite well - good recovery.

Couric was an ambush, for Christ's sake McCain's people let the interviews go for 9 hours of tape. Of course they got something bad out of it.

LOL I can definitely vouch for him NOT being a Democratic Party operative. Do you think I would let him write here on JDA if he were?! Not to mention the other things I let him do that are not appropriate to discuss on a financial website.

Anyway, let it be known that this website is NOT Sarah Palin-friendly. Personally I feel the Republican party can do SO MUCH better, and will have to if they have a snowball's chance in hell of ever toppling these leftie psychos that have taken over now.

** for the Dems politics is not a party or even ideology it’s also their livelihoods’ and religion even family all combined... any true threat is literally a threat to what is their nest in every way.

If I'm Sarah Palin's PSD (Personal Security Detachment) I'm on the lookout for 30's-40's skinny white male, wan smile (when they smile), faded preppy clothes, drives older model Volvo or similar, academic and/or media background, or government employee GS-7 and below. Moderately successful, hasn't failed but hasn't set the world on fire. No significant criminal priors, no history of violence (until) no mental illness. No record of political extremism (until).

OK. Well it is your website. I'm not a Sarah Stalker pro or con, but my judgement's are.....coming...

You know judgments, opinions, criticisms, etc etc are ALWAYS welcome here, even if pro Sarah Palin propaganda isn't. :)

From a letter to Elf's brother asking about 2012, he thinks it will be tougher than 1980 and wants to know what I thought about Repub Daniels/Thune 2012:

"2012 is when the world ends. That’s all I know…

I don’t think this will be 1980 replay..but if he’s going to have a 1980 it’s this year. Facci Fortuna motherF****r – you wanted the job.

Too many variables for me to call.

Re the Retards…er Repubs…. See what Sarah Palin does or who she endorses, because she is now electoral Queen of the chessboard. Underestimate her as a politician at your peril. The Democrats instincts about her – that she is the ValKyrie of their Apocalypse – are correct. Let’s remember for the Dems politics is not a party or even ideology it’s also their livelihoods’ and religion even family all combined.

So will she run or do her instincts tell her stay away from 2012 Giant Bomb and wait for 2016/2020? Or is she content as Queen of the Chessboard? I don’t know.

I know she either takes the Brass Ring herself or decides who does. That’s the political reality today and probably 2012 (which starts now).

I don’t get the star power vibe from either one of those two or frankly any other Repub than Newt. I get the Bob Dole vibe. So the answer is if the Repubs are left to their instincts and own devices yes he somehow gets re-elected.

Going back to the character of Dems vs Retards…oh sorry Repubs….we are kind of the converse. Since being in power is at once their careers, livelihood, money, party, religion, family, where they meet their lovers and spouses or what all these things are to people like us – it does attract their best and their brightest. Who are best and brightest at social networking and apple polishing since that is the true nature of the Ivy League. This of course is the true perfect preparation for a career in government. Never think that government doesn’t work because it fails at it’s ostensible mission of…governing. It excels perfectly at its true task of serving the interests of those in government. I think BTW that in the form of Byzantium and by continuing to emulate it, America could also last 1000 years. *

However they of the mindset or faction of limited government aren’t drawn to it with such intensity, nor will it tend to attract such driven and talented minds. We don’t get the hot talent; we get who we can settle for, safe, reliable, and colorless. Every once in awhile due to the law of averages more than anything else the Republicans get someone who is quite brilliant (Gingrich) or very effective (Delay) or has Star Power (Palin) or God has delivered us at the last moment all three (Reagan). The Dems hive mind (Sobaran) instinctive response is to attack and destroy any of the above. Of course they do, any true threat is literally a threat to what is their nest in every way.

In Palin we don’t have Reagan, we do have remarkable Star Power, a contrarian and unpredictable yet shrewd Pol, reasonably effective or better at governance - and key although most people can’t quite put their finger on it – she has her own quirky integrity and sense of honor, which she will certainly put before conventional wisdom and maybe her own interests. Her integrity is what makes her genuine and that’s key to the appeal. She also has a habit of turning the above to her advantage – resign as head of the Oil Commission – which most people in public life would have understood the nature of it’$$$$ charm$ - to take on her own sponsor and party – and win.

A year ago she’s written off after she resigns as Alaska governor because she feels she can’t govern. Gimmick, flash in the pan, erratic…

Well how do you like me now, says Mama Grizzly?

*(I really could go on and on about how I think the answer to the question are we Greece or Rome is we’re both – Byzantium reborn – for many hours. But to the point again…sigh…)

I hope pro Byzantium propaganda is welcome here...

To continue what is turning into JDA stalking on my part, I actually think the best choice in terms of executive experience, reform, and wartime leadership was Rudy Giuliani. He also has gotten behind the concept of civil resilience, which really could have helped now in the Gulf.

Wow. I really missed out on quite a little Sunday afternoon of sermonizing here. Good thing I was off contemplating things that are not appropriate to discuss on a financial website.


We had part of this conversation before ... but suffice it to say that I'm not a partisan and if the Democrats could bring half the clever I do, they'd be a lot better off.

And it's kind of self-evident that I have a media background. Which is not a bad thing. Asking questions, calling bullshit, putting it out there for people to see ... where's the downside in that?

If I could find a target as rich as the Half Governor on the other side, you'd see the same sort of devastating treatment directed that way.

Suggestions are welcome.

Now, for fuck's sake, it's Sunday afternoon. Have. A. Drink.

Well goodness gee whiskyers...gosh golly I think I'll have some of those special Oregano Brownies I just baked up! Yummy, but goshikins I'm actually hungrier! Wolly Golly Mr Munchikins!

Actually I work Sundays, but I did have that drink around 9.

She quit Gover-nering because she was being destroyed by frivolous lawsuits that were bankrupting her and consuming all of her staff's time. Hence Half a term.

You are kind of ignoring what happened last week. You don't have to like it, but she is now the Queen Kingmaker. A role the media thought was theirs, maybe that's the rub?

Perky and Quirky or not, she's effective and may indeed have that sense of honor we're missing. Explain taking the Oil Commissioner job then quitting when she found out it was corrupt*.
Effective rebound: using that to springboard to Governor.

The diversion you are ignoring is the main attack. But NP, we can all sit back and enjoy the fun.

After watching the Federal Reserve and our last two President's from 08 on fuse the Onion and the X files in real life the last 2 years, the worst Sarah Palin fantasy coming true - Big Breasted warrior Mother Valkryie of Andrew Sullivan's garden fantasies leading a populist crusade - would be comic relief, now wouldn't it?

*now most people might have known that was a condition of the job..the main reason to take it.

Sorry to assume you were off Sunday -- we don't get too many people dropping half a dozen comments from work. Glad you finally got that drink ... sounds like it came with more than a twist of Wagner.

Queen Kingmaker? In GOP primaries, that's a stacked deck. We shall see how things shake out when everyone's allowed to vote on Sarah's candidates. We already know what happened to the guy she last endorsed for president.

I do look forward to the General Elections...

Ummm..have you looked at the rest of the Repubs? Carpet Salesmen. Mind you, the wise ones are laying low. So is SP...somewhat.

Don't feel bad. You should see how I slapped my own flesh and blood down about Daniels/Thune.

I admit, I'm so pissed at DC I want Andrew Sullivan's Wagnerian nightmare to come true. But we need a Valkryie to kick ass.
