Joe Kaufman is running in Florida, attempting to gain the Republican nomination to position him to run against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the general election. In his desperation to promote himself, he used this encounter with Sarah Palin at CPAC as justification to say that he had Palin’s “endorsement.”
Jon Stewart gives us perspective on just who Joe Kaufman is. Recognizing the foolishness in wanting the endorsement of the Half-Term Ex-Governor, you could anticipate how much fun Jon Stewart could have with him.
Because the truth hurts, Sarah Palin lives her life in constant pain. She has proved her willigness to lie about personal and political matters. Levi Johnston asserted in an interview with TMZ that the Palins were keeping him away from his child. Certainly I could never be accused of being biased in Levi’s favor. In fact recent response to my comments on Levi getting another girl pregnant suggested that I was too harsh on Levi. I have not changed my mind regarding Levi’s lack of responsibility in getting another girl pregnant. Yet in light of Sarah Palin declaring that Levi is a “liar” I feel compelled to respond.
Sarah Palin is a pathological liar. As early as September 17, 2008 news reporters have documented the many lies she had told at that juncture.
Even when the Trooper Gate findings were reduced to writing in legal documents, Palin lied even about them.
Entire books have been devoted to the lies of Sarah Palin.
Bristol Palin has also accused Levi of not using his visitation rights. In that same interview Bristol Palin declared that she was returning to Alaska because she was tired of Hollywood, and Tripp would be starting preschool soon. The reality is that Bristol is making another reality show before Tripp has started preschool. Then there is the fact that Bristol not only declared herself to be an advocate for abstinence, calling herself a “Born-Again-Virgin”, and the reality is that she is living with her boyfriend of more than one year. Thus as between Levi, Bristol, and Sarah Palin, Levi appears to be the credible one.
The trooper-gate controversy is a great example of the extent to which the Palin family will go to exact revenge on anyone that might be perceived to be adverse to the interest of any member of the Palin family. Levi has been an outspoken critic of the Palin family, in his interviews with Vanity Fair, his television appearances like Tyra Banks, , and in his own book.
Now, when Sarah Palin calls Levi Johnston a “liar” it is almost an endorsement of the veracity of his statement. Levi Johnston may be irresponsible. Levi may be a victim himself. Levi may be the father of at least two children. He may have poor judgment and lacking in educational accomplishment. There may be many justifiable criticisms of Levi, but the clear indication is that Sarah Palin is the liar, and Levi does not lie.
“Boy will be boys” Sarah Palin said. It is unclear if Sarah was referring to Levi Johnston, Todd Palin, Herman Cain, or all three. The term “virility” comes to mind when you see pictures of Levi Johnston. The variety of pictures is amazing. However all reinforce the image of the stud. We’ve seen pictures of Levi in Playgirl Magazine,
Us Magazine, with the product of his loins,
appearing on national stage with the mother of his child,
and advertisements for his qualifications to be mayor.
With the news that Levi is going to be a father again, with somebody different than Bristol, we can put to rest any question about the virility of Levi. The concept of “virility” encompasses the capability of both copulation and procreation.
It is unclear whether Levi was attracted to Sunny because of her youth (20 years old), or her chin (which reminds him of Bristol’s new chin that he never got to enjoy.)
Sunny is reported to be a “teacher” from Wasilla, but there is no indication of what she is qualified to teach. Certainly she would not be a “teacher” in the traditional sense as she is too young to have obtained a Bachelor’s degree. If she had she would surely be smart enough to stay away from Levi. She isn’t too young to have had a “lot of loser ex-boyfriends.” She doesn’t put Levi in that category because he once “posed for Playgirl.”
When Levi is done with Sunny maybe Levi will give her a recommendation for employment with his Ex-Trial Father in Law. Todd employed Shailey Tripp after meeting her in school. Evidently being a teacher, or even a substitute teacher, is an impressive credential for employment by Todd Palin. Two words of caution to Levi. First, the Anchorage Daily News only publishes birth announcements as space permits, so be sure to space out the kids. Second you still have time to have more children than the octomom, by the time you are 36, and you don’t have to endure the stretch marks, or live on food stamps.
Finally, we know that the Wasilla Wonder doesn’t pay child-support. However maybe Levi should be asking for a stud fee for impregnating any young women! People who own and train race horses or breed dogs pay a lot of money for stud fees, in hopes of reaping financial benefits from the offspring of those studs. Given the hundreds of thousands of dollars Bristol Palin has made as a result of copulation with Levi, maybe Sunny should be paying stud fees to Levi for his services. Sarah describes her family as “ordinary,” and herself as a pit-bull, so an ordinary stud fee for a pit bull could be helpful in setting the going rate for Levi’s services.
If that pricing structure doesn’t work, maybe Todd Palin could lend a hand? He seems to be pretty knowledgeable about those sort of things.
Make no mistake. Sarah Palin would like to be Mitt Romney’s V.P. pick. During her brief appearance on the Today Show, she was asked a direct question by Matt Lauer regarding her thoughts about Mitt Romney’s pick for Vice President.
“When you were plucked from obscurity in 2008, you’d been Alaska’s governor about two years,”
“You didn’t have any real experience on the national stage, and in this era of intense media scrutiny, you took some lumps. You had mixed results, as we all know. Do you think, if Mitt Romney is the nominee, he should choose someone with more experience on the national battlefield than you had at the time?”
Attempting to defend her record Palin said:
“Well, you know, I would put up my record as a CEO of a city, of a state, as an oil and gas regulator, up against any of the other potential GOP vice presidential nominees last go-around,”
Suggesting that she has always been the “victim” of the “mainstream media” Palin said:
“I would say it doesn’t matter if that person has national level experience or not, they’re going to get clobbered by the mainstream media who does not like the conservative message. And it doesn’t matter if that person has been a known commodity to the mainstream, lamestream media or not. The GOP ticket, to tell you the truth, Matt, doesn’t know what’s coming. They don’t know what’s going to hit them in terms of double standards being applied to them and the positions that they hold, and the records that they are running on from, you know, personal family issues to anything else. There will be that double standard applied no matter who it is.”
Mitt Romney served his entire term as Governor of Massachusetts. Palin quit. Romney has a JD/MBA from Harvard. Palin earned a 4 year degree in 5 years from Idaho University in communications. Yet Sarah Palin has the audacity to “advise” Mitt Romney. She said:
“ What I would advise Mitt Romney, or whomever the nominee would be, don’t necessarily play it safe, and do just what the GOP establishment expects them to do. And that is, to get somebody kind of just going along to get along, not willing to go rogue and get up and say that we need relentless, and we need sudden reform of our government to put it back on the side of the people.”
However in case the importance of the choice of Vice President was not clear, Game Change made that clear.
The most telling indication of Palin’s chance of being picked as Romney’s running mate was an interview with John McCain. McCain laughed at the possibility of Romney picking Palin, and warned that Romney should not “rush to judgment” when picking a running mate. Watch McCain laugh at the idea of picking Palin.
If Palin is lucky, Mitt might give her a ride on the top of his car.
Joy Behar was featured on MSNBC. Her perspective on Sarah Palin reflects what we all are thinking. Enjoy!
If you wondered why I had not posted more articles today, I was hiding out because of tornadoes in Dallas. I still think Palin is a threat, but she isn’t the immediate threat that the tornadoes in Dallas were today.
Sarah Palin was advertised as appearing on the Today Show as the “guest host.” The obvious thought was that Palin would be auditioning for her next job as one of the anchors for the Today Show. With her future on Fox News unclear, it seemed this might be her next employment opportunity. If you too thought that, you would be wrong! Here is the longest segment of Palin’s appearance on the Today Show.
You will note that she is being interviewed by Matt Lauer, and the interview lasts just a little over 7 minutes. She is NOT the interviewer, she is the interviewee. Every other person appearing on the show appears in dresses or suits. Palin is in casual attire; noticeably black pants that looked more like something she would wear to the rodeo than for a guest appearance on the Today Show. In every other segment of the three hour show Palin appears with other people who are more articulate and experts in the fields in which they are speaking. Of course Palin is perfectly comfortable talking about things that she knows little, or nothing about.
In his short segment Matt Lauer points out that Palin didn’t answer his question. He points out that John Boehner disagrees with Palin that the economy is getting better. After Palin demeans the “mainstream media” Matt points out that Palin is now part of the “mainstream media.” Throughout the Today Show, the producers cut to Dallas personalities giving reports on weather and driving conditions locally. The meteorologist got more air time than Palin, and she appeared alone on camera, while Palin typically appeared with at least three other personalities. The large-busted woman who appeared to report on driving conditions in the DFW area was more memorable for her appearance than Palin.
Sarah Palin did not interview a single person, but instead she was cast in the role of the person to answer the questions. No longer am I fearful that Palin will be greeting the American public each morning. Katie Couric demonstrated the inadequacies of Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign when she ran for the position as Vice President. Again this morning, Couric demonstrated the difference between a competent woman and a woman who was cast in a role for which she was totally inept.
Sarah Palin is being used to get votes again. It’s not for the office of President this time. It is still for fame and fortune. It’s for television ratings! ABC’s Good Morning America has announced it will feature Katie Couric as the guest host. In retaliation the Today Show is using Sarah Palin as its guest to try to increase its ratings. CBS, Morning News is responding with an announcement that Oprah will make an appearance on their show. The connection is obvious! Oprah endorsed Obama. Palin did, and continues to, disparage Obama. Palin made a fool of herself, with only a little help from Couric.
Kudos to ABC’s Good Morning America for their respect and recognition of Katie Couric as a journalist. Perhaps their judgment is the reason they are up in ratings by 5%. Likewise the morning show that is using Sarah Palin, the Today Show, is down 15% in ratings. Perhaps they have invited Palin to appear to claim that they too are “Undefeated,”
or maybe they are just going to quit the morning news race. Maybe they are going to use Sarah to announce a new morning show featuring Todd Palin in “All About Job Creation …Last Night.”
Anyone who wishes that Sarah Palin had run for the Presidency is either an enemy of the United States, or delusional, or both. Timothy Stanley has written an article published by CNN entitled “If only Sarah Palin had Run.” Reading this article by Stanley may be hazardous to your health. At a minimum it will leave you incredulous. A quick review of information readily available about Stanley will educate you about his degree of conservatism. It will not however explain why he would post a picture of himself on the internet wearing a brown coat, a pink shirt, white pants, and a yellow and teal striped tie.
Mr. Stanley can only remember two gaffes of Palin; those related to things she reads and the bush doctrine. Quaaludes is the only explanation that comes to mind as an excuse for a journalist who doesn’t remember, Palin writing on her hand, Palin not knowing the difference between North and South Korea, Palin explaining about Paul Revere warning the British, Palin not knowing any US Supreme Court cases other than Roe v. Wade, Palin being found to have acted unethically in the Troopergate matter, Palin suggesting we should stop the Gulf Oil Spill by building dikes, not knowing that Africa was a continent instead of a country, giving a speech and mentioning that Ronald Reagan went to school in California, indicating that she was the victim of “blood libel” in the Giffords shooting, or declaring in a speech that Trig was born in Anchorage. Stanley describes Palin as “more disciplined than Santorum” Stanley goes on to say that she has a better sense of the limited role that faith should play in politics, even though her book bore the title “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag. Stanley proves he is delusional when he suggests Sarah Palin would never tell a journalist he was “talking bullshit” even though she did use the words “corrupt bastards,” “limp” and “impotent” in describing journalists. Stanley puts the final nail in his own coffin when he describes Palin as “aggressively authentic.”
While Stanley concludes that the conservative movement will have to wait until 2016 to elect Sarah Palin as the President, he makes two fundamental mistaken assumptions. First, he assumes Palin won’t announce her departure from the life of politics before 2016, and that there is still a Republican party in 2016.
