Palin Bus Tour Upsets GOP Elites
3 Jun 2011 9:03 am William Teach
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: for someone who is supposed to be a lightweight, stupid, and has no chance of being president, Palin sure scares the panty shields off of the liberal media and the GOP intelligentsia, and The Politico is there to make sure they tell us once again that Palin is not serious: Sarah Palin’s bus tour leaves GOP cold
As it played out on TV this week, Sarah Palin’s “One Nation” road trip of U.S. historical sites was a masterpiece of political mischief-making – …
MSDNC Anchor: Palin’s Bus Tour A “Breach Of Federal Law”
1 Jun 2011 8:47 am William Teach
Funny stuff from Newsbusters, who watch MSNBC so the rest of us don’t have to
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on May 31 insisted that Sarah Palin’s bus tour amounts to a “breach of a federal law.”
Anchoring his eponymous program, Bashir scolded, “In fact, the whole thing could be in breach of a federal law because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules for the use and display of the stars and stripes, the flag of the United States.”
As Newsbuster’s Alex Fitzsimmons points out
The only problem: the Supreme Court …
Oh, Noes! Sarah Palin “A No-Show For Fans!”

Palin a no-show for fans at Civil War battlefield
GETTYSBURG, Pennsylvania — Sarah Palin has found a new way to keep her political faithful guessing.
Palin was a no-show for several hundred supporters, celebrity-watchers and media who turned out in hopes of seeing her at the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg on Monday. She and her entourage arrived at a hotel outside the town late in the day and spoke to a smaller group of people gathered there.
How dare she not show up at the battlefield! How mean! …
Politico: “Sarah Palin Goes Behind Enemy Lines”
29 May 2011 8:48 am William Teach
Yes, that is the exact headline, and what follows is an interesting article
Starting Sunday, Sarah Palin enters enemy territory.
The bus tour that stands to return her to the 2012 spotlight is taking her to the part of the country that’s the least friendly to her — the northeastern U.S.
The headline and the story actually show more about liberals than Sarah Palin: namely, that they actually think of people on the political right as enemies. Not opponents, mind you, but, actual enemies. Those on the Left have a tough time thinking …
27 May 2011 8:33 am William Teach
I had intended to take a shot at the lead story over at The Politico regarding “Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann Size Each Other Up,” but this wacky opinion piece by one of the GOP intelligentsia over at The Washington Post really takes the cake: Huntsman-Bachmann in 2012!
Former governor and ambassador Jon Huntsman is an articulate, attractive, cerebral, urbane internationalist. He’s a proven conservative with a reassuring, moderate tone and a model family. His vast experience in state and federal government, including service as a diplomat, clearly makes him qualified to …
Politico Wants You To Meet The Unhinged Anti-Palin “Crusaders”
25 Apr 2011 8:00 am William Teach
Isn’t it amazing how this supposedly stupid, moronic, lite-weight non-factor of a politician and presidential candidate garners so much press, loathing, and fear? Not just from those on the Left, but some of the wishy washy Republicans?
Mission for anti-Palin movement: Expose her
She is a promiscuous, petty and unintelligent, yet deviously conniving warmonger intent on capturing the Oval Office and, from there, the world.
Those are just some of the opinions about Sarah Palin held by members of a small, but extremely active network of gadflies, bloggers and authors who have devoted …
The Feminist Left’s Dramatic Reaction to Wonkette’s Mockery of Trig Palin
23 Apr 2011 2:09 am Jenn Q. Public
Did I say “dramatic”? I meant “nonexistent”:
National Organization for Women: chirp chirp chirp
Ms. Magazine: chirp chirp chirp
Feministing: chirp chirp chip
Feministe: chirp chirp chirp
Pandagon: chirp chirp chirp
Shakesville: chirp chirp chirp
Jezebel: chirp chirp chirp
The Frisky: chirp chirp chirp
Bitch Magazine: chirp chirp chirp
Seems like a lot of crickets have taken up residence in the feminist blogosphere.
As Kurt Schlichter notes at Big Journalism, a handful of liberal media figures joined conservatives in condemning Jack Stuef, the revolting Wonkette blogger who tried to pass off his cruel ridicule of three-year-old Trig …
3 Reasons Why Wonkette Self-destructed by Publishing a Hit Piece on Trig Palin
22 Apr 2011 3:06 pm Susannah Fleetwood
For the last several days, Twitter has been all aflutter with stories about a supposedly horrific attack on Trig Palin by the liberal website Wonkette. After seeing the uproar on Twitter, I remember thinking to myself, “Could this column from Wonkette attacking Trig (on his third birthday) really be as bad as everyone says?” Well, I decided to take a look at the infamous column in question and I am here to tell you that, yes, the column is just God-awful and offensive to anyone who doesn’t …
Huggies Diapers, Papa John’s Pizza Pull Ads From Left-Wing Blog Attacking Trig Palin
20 Apr 2011 9:57 pm Warner Todd Huston
Note, I was going to ignore this story, but since advertisers are pulling out over it, I felt I’d better write about it.
One of the left’s favorite websites is called Wonkeete. It is popular because it has a reputation of being newsie, yet snarky, sort of like a less intelligent version of Comedy Central’s Daily Report. Truth be known it is more often than not merely profane as opposed to humorous or droll and for some of its advertisers the profane site has gone too far with its April 18 …
Answering Rush Limbaugh’s Question: The Sarah Palin Symbolism Generating Machine
15 Mar 2011 5:10 am John Hawkins
Rush Limbaugh asked an intriguing question on his show yesterday, which is interesting in and of itself, since Rush is the one who usually provides the answers:
Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a story at Politico today. I’m gonna have to turn to some of you for some help. I thought I had this figured out, but it’s gone beyond my ability to explain this, and that is this incessant, inexplicable, growing hatred of Sarah Palin by people on our side. The Politico story here: “‘She’s Becoming Al Sharpton, Alaska Edition.’”
Left Decries Palin’s Stalker… Or Not
8 Mar 2011 10:19 am Warner Todd Huston
Last month a stalker of Sarah Palin was discovered only 50 miles from her home in Alaska. He has been talking about “tracking her down” at book signings, falsely claimed he’s had a sexual relationship with her, and has sent the Palin’s receipts of gun purchases. So, now I am waiting for the leftists that immediately began to blame the shooting on Gabrielle Giffords on “violent right-wing rhetoric” to point to the violent left-wing rhetoric that would cause a teenager to buy guns (and send the receipt to Palin), send …
Palin Gives Time A Few Minutes of Her Time About Its False ‘Reporting’
14 Feb 2011 2:41 pm Warner Todd Huston
The media is so sure that only the worst about Palin could possibly be true that false stories, out right lies, and even comedy bits are constantly presented as actual news. Time Magazine is the latest to fall into that trap by reporting a satirical Internet posting about Sarah Palin as hard news. It all just goes to prove that Sarah Palin lives in the heads of the Old Media and it must be awfully cramped up there.
Last week on Time Mag’s Celebrity Newsfeed, Nick Carbone reported satire as …
Rachel Maddow’s Reason For Being Duped by Satire Website: It’s Conservatives Fault
4 Feb 2011 12:06 pm Warner Todd Huston
Remember when you were a kid and you got caught doing something you shouldn’t have been doing? Remember when you were confronted with your wrong doing that your first response was to blame everyone else? Well, that is very common for a child… or for a liberal, apparently. At least it is for MSNBC’s left-wing demagogue Rachel Maddow, anyway.
Earlier this week, Maddow featured some important news about Sarah Palin. Palin, Maddow breathlessly told us, was being urged to support the launch of a military attack on Egypt as it boiled …
Palin Derangement Syndrome Prevents Bristol’s Appearance at University
28 Jan 2011 11:19 am Robert Stacy McCain
Nothing says “academic freedom” like kowtowing to a few hundred students who signed up for an anti-Palin Facebook page:
Anger over a decision to pay Bristol Palin several thousand dollars in student fees to talk to Washington University students about abstinence led to a decision Thursday night to nix Palin’s appearance on a panel here next month.
Washington University’s Student Health Advisory Committee had extended an invitation to Palin, a spokeswoman to prevent teen pregnancy, to speak on abstinence as part of the university’s Student Sexual Responsibility Week. . . .

Mainstream media “crickets” chirping? Anchorage police say Todd Palin NOT involved with hooker
26 Jan 2011 12:08 am Jane Jamison
While all the nation fixated on President Obama’s State of the Union address, the Anchorage police department was doing some truth-telling and some SLAM-DUNKING of a recent report by the National Enquirer that there was “police evidence” that Todd Palin was involved with an Anchorage prostitute ring during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Jared Loughner’s Zeitgeist Obsession:
‘He Wanted to Watch It All the Time’
16 Jan 2011 5:36 pm Robert Stacy McCain
Kudos to the Arizona Republic for this follow-up reporting:
Loughner began fixating on a documentary: “Zeitgeist: The Movie.”
The movie is a bramble of conspiracy theories involving Sept. 11, the international monetary system, and Christianity.
“There are people guiding your life and you don’t even know it,” the trailer for the movie intones.
“He wanted to watch it all the time,” Osler said. “It was cool at first. But then it got weird. It was all he wanted to do.”
Loughner developed a seeming obsession with currency, grammar and literacy rates. They were becoming the …
4 Reasons Why the MSM Botched the Tuscon Massacre, and Why they Owe the Victims and Sarah Palin an Apology
16 Jan 2011 4:33 pm Susannah Fleetwood
[H/T Toby Toons for the image.]
This past week in the wake of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by Jared Lee Loughner (that killed six people and wounded nine others–including the congresswoman), the mainstream/liberal media instantly pounced on “the violent rhetoric” by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party as the cause of Loughner’s mad shooting spree. Oh, and they did this within half an hour of the victims being shot, before any of the facts of the case had come in. To be specific, the likes of Andrew …
Sarah Palin “Saturation” Has Made Her the “Hillary of the Right”
15 Jan 2011 10:01 pm Jane Jamison
It is time for Sarah Palin to sit quietly for awhile, at least a few weeks, and let others defend her. It is time for her to let things “settle” in Tucson, because the shooting had nothing to do with her.

Even As Arizona Shooting Story Unfolds, Some Media Already Blaming Tea Party/Sarah Palin
8 Jan 2011 10:49 pm Warner Todd Huston
Even as the early, sketchy details of the shooting incident in Arizona were still emerging some members of the left-leaning media were already trying to tie the killer to Tea Party activism in general and Sarah Palin in particular.
Andrew Sullivan of the Atlantic.com was early to attempt to link lunatic killer Jared Loughner to the Tea Party, but he wasn’t the only one. The Washington Post’s Sandhya Somashekhar immediately attempted to color the story as an example of the “militant rhetoric” of the Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin.
