Tag Archive: Sarah Palin


OK, now that you are kinda surprised by the comments, don’t be surprised because the man who coined the phrase, “politics of personal destruction” was seeing things from the other side. Whodathunkit? CNN wants to credit Karl Rove’s Wall Street Journal article for telling Obama to back off, but honestly, the vibe against Palin was so ridiculously stretched out, that it was starting to make the Dems look like a bunch of desperate bullies. I know I was not the only one saying this. This country is in such sad shape, do we really want the rest of the world noticing that we’re falling over each other trying to place blame and pointing out each other’s faults? (Whoops, too late!) McCain needs to back off as well. Those ads were the biggest wastes of Rep money (which are no longer on the McCain website). Spend it on an economist that can best explain the economy and how we can get back in black!

Have we seriously gone too far to expose Palin? When is it considered enough abuse to bash a political figure? Believe it or not, there actually were unwritten rules to the politics of personal destruction. It’s now turned into utter chaos as reasoning and logic were bum rushing each other. I can understand the posting of emails that are relevant to her position in government, but posting personal photos of her family? C’mon, Anonymous, what were you thinking?

Is this the same Anonymous that exposed the Church of Scientology?  Everyone outside of the CoS are well aware of their practices and only those who dare cross their boundaries feel it is justified. To a certain point, I was also caught up in the vigilante and Robin Hood-like escapades of Anonymous. But then I paused long enough to think about what if the shoe were on the other foot? No one on this earth is perfect and it would be too easy to dig up dirt on anyone for anything. So I wondered, after Scientology, who would be next for Anonymous? Obviously, he’s got an agenda. It seems Palin was going to pay a dear price because she stood out differently from all the candidates. It’s almost a sickening type of fraternity initiation if you want to compare it to anything. And because we’ve all managed to thrive on controversy and focus more on their flaws rather than their potential to lead this nation, we’ve lost sight of what this country once stood for – values, integrity, ethics, passion for the US. I must be getting old because the attacks on Sarah Palin have turned for the worst. Stay off her family and personal life! Maintain a healthy balance of her good points as well as her bad ones and keep it on a professional level. Even Obama doesn’t like what’s happening to Palin, expressing a cautious empathy in the hopes that the wolf pack don’t sniff him out too.

“Let me be as clear as possible. I have said before, and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits. And people’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Governor Palin’s performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president.”

Gawker.com, Anonymous, and Wikileaks need to self examine themselves and quit being that annoying kid who always tells on everybody to the teacher not just to get others in trouble but to show how squeaky clean they are!

“”Here ruining people is considered sport,” so concluded Vince Foster in what many believe was his suicide note.”

TRANSCRIPT: “I think there’s a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president, and I think that’s a really scary thing because I don’t know anything about her. I don’t think in eight weeks I’ll know anything about her.

[Uh HELLO? Since McCain announced her as her running mate – nearly TWO WEEKS AGO, the media has gone into a frenzy trying to answer the very question you and the rest of this country wanted to know! Have you not picked up a paper? Read the news online? Talk to a fellow human being? Where were you Damon? Hiding under a rock?! Oh wait, it appears that you were in the parental bliss of being a father to your newborn baby girl on August 20th. Congratulations! Now that you’ve decided to come out of the baby bubble and join the rest of the society, how’s about catching up on your news facts before allowing the AP to get a sound bite you deemed important. I remember when my son was born, my wife thought I was a complete moron for weeks from the lack of rest and euphoria that comes with being a parent.]

I know that she was mayor of a really, really small town and she’s been governor of Alaska for less than two years. I think the pick was made for political purposes but in terms of governance it’s a disaster.

[OK, Matt, let’s look at the numbers. Wasilla, AK, according to 2007 estimates, has a population of nearly 10,000 people. Your current residence of Miami has almost 410,000. Almost 41 times more people. Most of those 10,000 Wasillians probably know Sarah Palin on a more personal level than your neighbors probably do at your own block! She was there everyday being the mayor FOR TWO TERMS! You’ve been out of town making movies and when you were home, you were hopefully attending to your family, right?

So now that we’ve established Wasilla, AK is a small, small town, let’s keep looking at the numbers. After Wasilla, she tried to be lietenant governor and was unable to get elected. Did she stop? Nope, Palin then shook things up within her own party as Ethics Supervisor AND if that wasn’t a good stopping point, she went ahead and ran for governor AND WON! You don’t take a whizz in your party’s pool and still win the governorship! Did your “in the know” neighbors already tell you this? Did you read about it online? Based on your transcript, sounds like a resounding ,”no”.]

If you do the actuary tables, there’s a 1 out of 3 chance – if not more – that McCain doesn’t survive his first term and it’ll be President Palin. (You know) we were just talking about it earlier. Its like a really bad Disney movie. You know, the hockey mom (saying) “Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska!” And she’s the president! and its like, she’s facing down Vladimir Putin (using the) folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. Its just absurd. Its totally absurd and I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about how absurd it is. Its a really terrifying possibility. The fact that we’ve gotten this far…and we’re that close to this becoming a reality…is ….crazy. Crazy. I mean, did she, I mean I really need to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. That’s an important…I wanna know that, I really do. Because she’s gonna have the nuclear codes. You know, I wanna know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. Or if she banned books, or tried to ban books. I mean, this is…this is…we can’t have that.”

[When Vice President Dick Cheney was experiencing all of his health issues during his term in office, why didn’t I hear about how great it potentially was that Nancy Pelosi was the runner up for the Office of President? Oh but, Matt, aren’t you that familiar about the U.S. Presidential Line of Succession? I would have loved the discussion about Pelosi, mother of five, grandmother of seven, facing Putin with her getting warm and fuzzy with the nuke codes. And where did Damon come from by making the reference to dinosaurs?! What does that have to do with leading the country and having access to the nuclear codes?! And what about the banning of books? This ain’t the 1940’s or 2000 B.C., get in the now and stay out of the political limelight and finish up your education that you haven’t completed at Harvard!]

There’s nothing that bugs me more than entertainers who come crawling out of their little sheltered rich hovels and decide to voice their politics and their (ahem) wisdom upon the masses before going back to their posh abodes. Why the Associated Press decided to let this little creature roam the tubes can only be incendiary. Do they honestly believe that Matt Damon’s political viewpoints are considered newsworthy for the public to engage watercooler talk? I’d like to see the AP wander into gangland cities of this country and interview the thoughts and political concerns of their organized leaders. Why not? They’re more in tune with the American community than the A, B, C, or D-listers that travel the world to exotics shoots and walk the red carpets with their bodyguards and entourages!

Ooh, Whine-a-cuda!

Ooh, Whine-a-cuda!

For those of you that noticed during the end of the RNC, Heart’s Barracuda was being played. This, of course, was in homage to Sarah Palin’s nickname, Barracuda, which she got back in her basketball playing days in high school. The new nickname, “Sarah-cuda” is slowly being passed around and used to reflect her current political stance.

Of course, Ann and Nancy Wilson were not thrilled upon hearing their song being played by the GOP. Earlier they shot off a salvo statement making their stance clear about the use of their music for anything that’s politically motivating as far as the RNC goes.

“Sarah Palin’s views and values in NO WAY represent us as American women. We ask that our song ‘Barracuda’ no longer be used to promote her image. The song ‘Barracuda’ was written in the late 70s as a scathing rant against the soulless, corporate nature of the music business, particularly for women. (The ‘barracuda’ represented the business.) While Heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song at the RNC, there’s irony in Republican strategists’ choice to make use of it there.”

-Ann & Nancy Wilson

Irony?! Yes, you’re right, Wilson sisters, but the irony doesn’t end after the RNC played the song after all towards the end of the convention. It ends with a statement made by co-writer of the song, Roger Fisher.

“In an appearance on a Seattle talk show, song co-writer Roger Fisher announced he was “thrilled” with the RNC’s use of the song, because it both resulted in royalties for the band and gave them an opportunity to publicly point out that he, the Wilson sisters, and fellow bandmate Michael DeRosier were all staunch supporters of Barack Obama.”

So much for rock bands fighting against the system. I mean despite your dad serving his country in the Marine Corps, you went along with your draft dodging band members to start your group (ironically called, “Army” before you finally made up your minds to call it “Heart”) and become honorary Canadians until the dust settled and U.S. President Jimmy Carter granted amnesty to those who avoided their duty to country. By the way, America called, they said, “Your welcome and we’re still buying your music because despite your political opinions, we like it.”

Bottom line. You left this country when it needed you, came back when it convenienced you, and milked the corporations that milked you in return (ooh, barracuda!), and when you couldn’t cut it as a rock band, you took advantage of the American public by writing cheesy pop songs and getting fools to buy (and your welcome because I bought “Bad Animals” when it came out!) And despite all that, you get politically antsy when this country offers to pay you royalties to play your music at their functions? Even your other band member was thankful that he was getting paid! Can you not show any appreciation for this country? At least Johnny Depp put his money where his mouth is and lives in France. Where are you residing?

You’re absolutely right! Sarah Palin has nothing in common with you.

“What about love? Don’t you want someone to care about you? You might need it someday.”

And speaking of irony, here’s Heart performing Barracuda live. Enjoy!

Hello!

Hello! We should make an appearance on SNL to boost our ratings as well as theirs. Whaddya say?

You’ve got to admit that John McCain has a hilarious sense of humor. He’s made appearances at SNL before so why not have the trifecta done twice? Here’s the skit I’m envisioning.

Setting: In a laboratory that’s in a dark dungeon. Tesla coils in the background. A gurney in the center of the room with a body covered completely in a white sheet.

McCain: [Dressed in white lab coat on the phone] Yes, tell them to come in.

[Enter McCain’s future appointed cabinet and wife Cindy, dresssed in lab coat as well]

McCain: Welcome my minions. I’ve gathered you here today to witness my ultimate secret weapon that will garantee us the White House. Muahahahahaha!

McCain cabinet: Muahahahaha!

McCain: SILENCE! Mrs. McCain, you may bring him in now.

[Enter Barack Obama, eyes blindfolded as he walks in front of McCain and his cabinet. His blindfold is removed.]

Obama: What’s the meaning of this? John!? What are you and your staff doing here? Why did you bring me here? I thought we were going to have a photo op at the golf course?

McCain: Something stinks, B.O. and it’s this election. You’ve been gathering momentum as the months have gone by and it’s time that I take matters into my own hands. You see, I’m going to win this election and it will be done in such a way, you will be rendered helpless in your desperate attempts to overthrow me! Muahahahaha!

Obama: [looking bored] John, John, John. Once a snowball rolls down the mountain, it only picks up more speed and cannot be stopped. You’ve been coasting all this time but it’s my turn to drive. The American people are going to vote for me. You can’t convince them otherwise!

McCain: Really? You don’t think this old fart’s got a few more hands to play? Watch and learn from someone who’s been around the block a few more times. Behold! My ticket to the White House!

[McCain dramatically rolls away the white sheet once draped over the gurney as it tilts forward revealing the identity. The woman revealed has a frozen, disconnected look on her face.]

Obama: [still unimpressed] John, what’s Tina Fey doing under the sheet? Is this another one of those $10,000 a plate celebrity fundraisers? So where’s the buffet line start. I am getting a bit hungry.

McCain:Muahahahaha! See, you are even fooled at close range! Muahahaha!

Obama:[looking puzzled] What are you talking about?

McCain: It’s all part of my plan, B.O. Thanks to the advancements scientists have made in cloning, I’ve decided to clone Tina Fey and turn her into… [dum, dum, dum music plays….] your next Vice President of the United States! Meet Sarah Palin, current governor of Alaska!

Obama: Sarah, who?
