TLP: Recognize a Pattern Here?

Wednesday, June 02, 2010 , , , 6 Comments

Is Sarah Palin about done? Because this is starting to get tedious. "Look at me! Look at me! Hey, everybody! Pay attention to me!" Soon followed by, "Why won't everyone leave me alone?" Extra points when she blames the media.

The latest Palapalooza involves author Joe McGinniss, who decided to rent a house in Wasilla, Alaska, to conduct research for a book, tentatively titled, "Sarah Palin's Year of Living Dangerously." Turns out, the house is next door to the former governor and failed Republican vice presidential nominee.

Predictably, Palin's inner middle school mean girl came out and she trashed McGinniss on Facebook, with a hint of creepiness. "Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" she pecked.

Not able to resist an odd spectacle, NBC's "Today" show gave McGinniss the opportunity to respond. "I need to be in Wasilla to do my work," he said. "I'm not observing them at all. I'm here to talk to people who've known them for 40 years in Wasilla."

Back to you, Sarah. Via CNN:

Calling NBC's actions the "most recent illustration of the untrustworthiness of America's mainstream media," Palin criticizes the network on her Facebook page for not including statements she and her husband, Todd, had provided ahead of the segment.

"We were glad to provide a statement and appreciated NBC's promise to run it," Palin wrote in the post Tuesday. "Todd and I both crafted the statement very carefully because our new neighbor has taken to accusing us of 'inciting hatred' – a charge which we obviously take very seriously … But there was just one problem: NBC broke their promise and didn't run our statements after all."
NBC later mumbled something about a "timing issue."

If Palin wants the real lowdown on the McGinniss mojo, she might want to log off of Facebook and consult with Jeffrey MacDonald. He's reachable at FCI Cumberland until April 5, 2071.

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.

Yeah, I recognize Palin obsessive/compulsive hatred disorder. In you.

Which apparently blinds you to McGinnis's stalking behavior. It's. Creepy.

And he's just one of the more extreme examples, but not the most, sadly.

All public figures and political figures seek public attention. It's how they ply their ideas, as well as trade. But following your logic, Lincoln was just asking for it from John Wilkes Booth. I mean...going out in public to attend a play. Bitch wanted it, right?

Take a look at how the Left has obsessed about their political opponents as the focus of evil over the last century. Harding, McCarthy, Nixon, LBJ, Bush 43...recognize a pattern?

There's a reason the Left obsesses about Hate Crimes. It's called projection.

The funny thing is it just helps her, it's tough not to sympathize with her when she was subject to not extreme but insane speech within 48 hours of her being named as McCain's running mate. And it won't let up.

Funnier still - no one thinks she's running in 2012. Her instincts are probably warning her off.

And they're good instincts.

I'm too lazy to be a hater. I do, however, enjoy a good round of mockery at egocentric, self-aggrandizing hypocritical phonies. Half-term Sarah fits that description pretty well.

My point was not about political fights, but thanks for the refresher. You might fill out your one-sided list with a couple of other examples: Carter, James Earl; Clinton, William Jefferson; Obama, Barack Hussein.

McGinniss is no creep. And he's no lightweight. He's never stopped being a reporter. Maybe you ought to drop Dr. MacDonald a note and see what he thinks.


I'm happy to jump on the "No to Palin" bandwagon, what is the draw exactly? This is who you'd want wagging her finger over the button during nuclear war?!

I don't sympathize with any "politician" as surely they read the manual before they signed on for the job. She knew what she was getting into (I hope).

Granted, it's creepy that he ended up next door but isn't that the game?

OK TLP we'll put it down to intellectual snobbery.

Palin --She's not running, or if she is going to jump into 2012 it will be the biggest surprise since Lincoln.

Yes, I would take her on the nuclear trigger, but I'm fond of Andrew Jackson in MILF form big breasted warrior mother's leading us towards Vahalla or Victory.

However like all Sarah Palin fantasies this one is not likely to happen.

In Palin's case you may recall the level of hatred reached madness quite quickly - let's recall - she should have aborted Trig, there's going to be a black gang rape (lay off the porn, whoever said that), etc, etc...and yes there are some limits in politics. Kids and rape would be a good place to halt well short of.

Can you imagine Rush Limbaugh or even Glenn Beck moving next door to their prey what the outcry would be? And no one on the Right would defend it.

As far as the half term - well maybe that's the ethical thing to do when you're being sued into ineffectiveness and penury? Let's remember as well, this is a woman who resigned as head of the oil commission in Alaska when she realized it was part of a corrupt enterprise, then took on her own party and won the Governor seat. It's not exactly out of character for her to do the unexpected and ethical deed.

BTW when you get past the witchcraft and banning rape kits myths, what exactly is it that bothers Libs about her?

She's a symbol of an America they know damn well they've wronged, and is on the march.

"BTW when you get past the witchcraft and banning rape kits myths, what exactly is it that bothers Libs about her?"

I dunno, maybe the 'death panels' myth she created for one? The utter lack of planning and/or caution in everything she does? Sooner or later, Palin will shoot from the hip without pulling her gun first, and we "left-wing loonies" would prefer that our country (yes, it's our country too) not lose any toes in the process.

Totally spot on about Warren Harding being the focus of evil, though. I think about Warren Harding and how much I hate him every day.

Also, mentioning Palin and Andrew Jackson in the same sentence (unless the sentence is "Palin is certainly no Andrew Jackson) is an insult to the 7th President which he probably would have shot you dead for.

LBJ was a Democrat you nonce!

As for the rest?

Nixon was a criminal and the only US President to resign (but still better than GWB).

McCarthy was a lying, bullying drunk who destroyed the lives of many innocent people. And then drank himself to death. What's not to like?

Harding (who?) is so far out of anyone's mind that they couldn't even tell you that he consistently ranks as one of the worst Presidents in US history. Right down there with that other wonderful President - GWB. From Harding's biography in the 'US Military Dictionary':

"...once in office, Harding proved ill-suited for the challenges of the position. His administration was marked by highly publicized scandals (many of which came to light only after his death) involving officials in several departments. The most notorious of these was the Teapot Dome affair, concerning the transfer of naval oil reserves at Teapot Dome, Wyoming, to the Department of the Interior, whose secretary subsequently leased them to private interests. Albert B. Fall, Harding's secretary of the interior, was the first U.S. cabinet member to be convicted of a felony committed while in office."

Once again, what's not to like?

As for GWB, he had it all - He was a crook like Nixon, a bully like McCarthy, with a corrupt administration like Harding. If you like Warren, you've got to love George.

But we've come to expect all of this from the GOP. We're not angry, just disappointed. Disappointed in the gullible voters that buy the GOP line despite the fact that they have proven themselves to be petty, corrupt, and incapable of administering an effective government. And the fact that they spend taxpayer dollars at a rate that would make drunken sailors blush and at a rate that is historically unprecedented. I know I just love that!

But LBJ? He was certainly what you must have been referring to when you said, "Take a look at how the Left has obsessed about their political opponents as the focus of evil over the last century."

How on earth could we not focus on this evil?:

" President, was responsible for designing the "Great Society" legislation that included laws that upheld civil rights, Public Broadcasting, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental protection, aid to education, and his "War on Poverty." He was renowned for his domineering personality and the "Johnson treatment," his arm twisting of powerful politicians in order to advance legislation."

I know that I'm obsessing on this rival's focused evil every time I see a minority child walk into a public school while listening to NPR after her cancer treatments have ended.

Oh the humanity! I want my country back!
