Since when did it become funny to call someone “retarded”? By now, I am sure most of you are aware of the vicious actions made my a certain liberal, scum-filled website. Recently, this website had the audacity to refer to Sarah Palin’s youngest son, Trig, as “retarded.” When I first read this article and the comments that followed it, I was both appalled and saddened. My sadness soon turned to anger when I thought about the many people I am blessed to know with down syndrome and special needs. As someone who works with special needs students on a daily basis, I can tell you that individuals with special needs are the most kind-hearted, compassionate individuals you will ever have the chance to meet, and I learn valuable lessons from them daily. Not only are people with special needs kind and compassionate, but they are individuals too, and they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

As many of you have heard, Geraldine Ferraro passed away this morning at the age of 75 from blood cancer. As a young woman, I have always admired Mrs. Ferraro because she did so much for women and helped to shatter a glass ceiling that at one time seemed unbreakable. Unlike many other Democrats, Mrs. Ferraro was unafraid to stand up and speak out against her own party, which made me respect her even more. I will never forget watching her on Fox News shortly after Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate. As a woman, she was so proud at the possibility of a woman holding the second-highest office in the land. Although she and Sarah disagreed on many, many issues, and Ferraro supported President Obama during the 2008 election, she looked past these differences, which speaks to her integrity, wisdom and strength of character.
As a young woman, I always will be grateful for Mrs. Ferraro’s service and the sacrifice she made for her country. She forever will be a role model to me for everything she represented. Although she is no longer physically with us, her fight for women and her love of country will live on! Thank you, Geraldine, for everything you did for women like me! Thank you for defending women, regardless of party, and for never foundering in your mission for the advancement of women in politics and beyond! Thank you for your sacrifice and your steadfast, unwavering love for America!!! You will forever be missed!!!
I leave you with one of my favorite television clips of Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin together for the first time on Fox News. Click here to watch.

Palin’s trip to Israel was well received by the majority of Israel and a necessary trip for those considering a run for president. Many individuals are praising Palin for visiting one of the United States’ most trusted friend and ally. Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin praised Palin for her visit to Israel. In his most recent note posted on Facebook, Levin commends Palin and takes aim at liberal Republican Commentator David Frum, describing him as a “disgraceful, petty, Palin-obsessed Washington-insider” and criticizing him for his recent disappointment in the fact that Palin booked her trip through a Christian tour group and did not take the Washington insider route and use the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) to book her trip.
Frum really does not get it, and Levin is right to call him out for his lame attempt to criticize the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate just because she did not go conventional route. Who cares which group Palin booked her tour through? It is clear that Frum is once again barking up the wrong tree in his awful attempt to pretend he does not care what Palin does or says, when it is clear he is obsessed with all things @SarahPalinUSA. It is not as if he paid for her trip to Israel. Then again, with his disapproval of her not picking the RJC, is he offering to pay for her next trip? After all, Palin said she cannot wait to return to the holy land. But I am not holding my breath that Frum would fork up much of anything other than ridiculous criticism. Levin sheds light on Frum’s obsession with Palin picking a Christian tour group over the RJC:
But that’s not good enough for Frum. According to him, she didn’t use the RJC, of which he is a Board member, to handle the event. As an American, Jew, and conservative, I consider Frum an embarrassment. With rising anti-Semitism throughout the world and support for Israel weakening in the West, including among young people in the United States, he should be praising her visit and her commitment to Israel. He should encourage more such trips and meetings by more opinion-makers and politicians, regardless of the group that handles these events. Instead, Frum focuses on nonsense. This is why Frum is neither taken seriously nor should be by a growing number of thinking conservatives.
Frum has never hidden his dislike of Palin, but it is his latest comments that are the most surprising considering the fact that Frum is Jewish. Frum is yet another example of those obsessed individuals who say they do not care about what Palin says or does, yet whenever she does say or do something, they have to find something about it to criticize. This, my friends, is the number one symptom of Palin Derangement syndrome. Mr. Frum, if you are serious about wanting to be taken seriously, then, I suggest you find something of high intellectual value to complain about. Until you do, I suggest you refrain from stirring up complete and utter nonsense and looking like a fool in the process! That…is…all.
Tucker Carlson “Blames” Charlie Sheen for his Sexist Behavior: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice
Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 1, 2011
My good friend and co-host, Camille Friend, over at The Design Conservative wrote an excellent piece last night, bringing to my attention a recent comment Political Pundit and Daily Caller Founder Tucker Carlson tweeted (and later permanently deleted). In this tweet, Mr. Carlson took it upon himself to call former Alaska Governor, author and Political Contributor Sarah Palin a “MILF” or in his exact words a “milfistan.” This is a term that not only serves to degrade and demean the female sex, but shows a total lack of respect and common human decency. I am not about to go into detail about the meaning of this word, if it can even be called that, so you will have to take my word for it or go surf the web. For those of you out there who have never heard of this term, I am sure you will immediately realize the stupidity Mr. Carlson illustrated in describing Sarah this way.
We hear many members of the far left speak this way about female candidates like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann and political contributors like Michelle Malkin, but to hear an uncouth statement like this come from a so-called conservative cuts the wound even deeper. In making comments like this, he has basically offended women across the country regardless of political ideology. This type of disgusting talk has unfortunately become the norm in today’s political climate.
Individuals like Carlson, who get paid for their political commentary, have forgotten that in order to be taken seriously, you have to remain respectful and hold at least some form of a moral code to which you live your life. Perhaps my friend, Camille, put it best:
If you *must* use locker room language, save it for the locker room. Don’t display your inner-most Neanderthal to your 23,000+ Twitter followers – some of whom will take the opportunity to offer their own crass retort. Surely, we can expect more from you, Mr. Carlson – can’t we?
I have always respected Mr. Carlson because he has done a lot to advance the conservative movement with his commentary and writings. With this said, I have lost a lot of respect for this man given his most recent comments. I would hope that Mr. Carlson, the man, would apologize or at least restrain himself from making comments like this again, but it seems as if this is not going to happen anytime soon given his most recent tweet posted moments ago:
Apparently Charlie Sheen got control of my Twitter account last night while I was at dinner. Apologies for his behavior.
Mr. Carlson, wise up. Joking around and blaming Charlie Sheen for your ridiculous tweet is about as ridiculous as blaming President George W. Bush for the rain we had this past weekend here in my home state of California. Not cool, Mr. Carlson, not cool….

As a lover of literature- political literature being my favorite, I have longed enjoyed reading books by a variety of authors. When I first started this blog, I realized there was a need to inform individuals with the truth and the facts. As a young conservative, I have been blessed to have amazing readers who inspire me each and everyday to continue writing. It is because of this and at the urging of others that I have decided to write a book targeting young conservatives and beyond. I have been amazed at the number of young people who have commented that they can really identify with me because of their conservative beliefs. In writing this book, I want to educate other young conservatives about the importance of getting involved politically and let them know that they are not alone in their conservative thinking.
There are so many “Hollywood” types out there who attempt to tell us what to believe. You do not only see this in Hollywood. Meghan McCain is a good example of a young person who basically goes out there calling herself a Republican when it is clear she is not. In typical RINO fashion, she attempts to speak for young people like myself, and whenever it is announced that she is to be a guest on a nightly news show, I immediately cringed. I did not always feel this way. There was a time when I admired Meghan McCain and the way in which she stood up for her father and his political beliefs. This admiration turned to disappointment after the election when she repeatedly spoke out against the Republican principles I firmly stand on the side of. Now, it appears that the only things I share with Meghan McCain are hair and eye color. The young conservatives I communicate with feel the same way. They are sick and tired of young people like Miss McCain who speak for them or tell them what they should believe. It is time for these young, conservative Republicans to tell their stories about what conservatism means to them, and I cannot wait to speak with young conservatives from all across the country and include their stories in the book.
As a woman from California, people I meet immediately assume I hold liberal beliefs. At first, I kind of laugh it off, but the more I think about it, I really cannot blame them for thinking this way. For years, the media and society have repeatedly played the “gender card,” basically trying their best to convince us that a majority of modern-day women hold liberal ideologies. This is a misguided notion, for there are many women out there just like me who believe in conservative principles. Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are two strong, modern-day women who have shattered this glass ceiling. These conservative, pro-life women are two of my role models, and I know I am definitely not alone in feeling this way.
I have already started the book preparation process, and I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me. Thanks so much for continuing to inspire me and for taking the time to read my blog!!! Now, let the writing begin….
Sarah Palin Continues to Inspire and Fascinate America and the Rest of the World: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice
Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on February 10, 2011
Finally, I want to thank Sarah Palin for all she has done in the name of freedom and liberty. Happy birthday!!!
Sarah, after blogging for nearly two years, I am still inspired by you and all you stand for. Unlike so many people of our time, you are unafraid to stand up and to speak out, doing the dirty work so many refuse to do. You is both unafraid and determined to make America that shining city on a hill.
In honor of Sarah, I have decided to take a step back into time and re-post my very first blog entry. I cannot believe everything that has happened in the time since this post. Enjoy:
The night before John McCain was to announce his running mate, speculation was running rampant. Journalists were fighting tooth and nail in an attempt to get any shred of information regarding the “top-secret” pick. For me, personally, the “night before” speculation has become a “where were you the night before the world was introduced to Sarah Palin?” Just as I am able to recall where I was when OJ Simpson, hidden away in his infamous White Ford Bronco, was being chased down the highway by police, I am able to recall where I was on, what would become, the eve Republican-Party history would be made. I was watching Hannity and Colmes with my mom, listening to the guys’ debate on who they felt would be picked. Names such as Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, Jindal and even Lieberman were being thrown around like a football. As a young conservative woman, I have tremendous respect for all of the men above, but I did not have the enthusiasm I would soon have when I turned the news on the next morning.
Sarah Palin IS the reason why I have centered this blog on strong, conservative female women. It was Sarah Palin who re-energized a party that was split. Before Sarah Palin, John McCain was struggling to stay afloat, struggling to keep up with the glitzy, charismatic candidate that was Barack Obama. Sarah Palin was his “hole in one.” I remember saying to my mom: “Why doesn’t the Republican Party have any strong, conservative female candidates?” Well, I didn’t have to wait that long for my answer because it came the next morning in the form of AK Governor Sarah Palin. I will never forget hugging my mom, tears in my eyes saying that I finally had an American political role model. Here she was, a self-described hockey mom who had a loving husband and five adorable children. What was not to love about her? Like many, I have so much in common with her; she is an every woman of sorts. An individual who started out just like many Americans, who learned to work hard and in the end achieve great things. A woman who mothers can cite as an example to their young daughters that they too can have a family and be whatever they want to be. Of all the decisions John McCain made during the campaign, his choice of running mate was the best by far.
On a final note, I have to admit that it was fun to watch the mainstream media trip over themselves throughout the day of the announcement as they scrambled to uncover any little tidbit they could about the Alaskan governor: “She hunts, she fishes, she’s the hottest governor in the coldest state, she was a beauty pageant contestant…” The media could not get enough of Sarah. Although the stories about her soon turned into negative tabloid journalism, it was memorable to see that for once, Barack Obama had been overshadowed. It is as if Sarah Palin and Barack Obama were characters straight from the Brady Bunch, with Barack crying out “Sarah, Sarah, Sarah.”

I miss President Ronald Reagan. As we quickly approach this coming weekend, Sunday marks what would have been President Reagan’s 100th birthday. As a young conservative and a self-described “Reagan baby,” I am always eager to hear stories about this dear man, father, president and all-around amazing American Patriot. Ronald Reagan will be remembered for many things- everything from how he managed to bring the country together during hard and difficult times, his conviction as held strong to his beliefs, the way in which he had an amazing sense of humor, and the everlasting love he and his wife, Nancy, shared. Everyone has their own favorite memory of this man and his legacy. For me, it is the way in which he valued the people and did everything in his power to put their best interests first. The Reagan Library is a great resource for those who want to learn more about President Reagan’s legacy. I have never had the honor of visiting the library, but it is on my bucket list of things to do this year. Until then, I will continue to read about his legacy and the important impact that he had on the country as a whole. There is a great write up I recently found on the Reagan Library Website that describes Reagan’s belief in “a more perfect union.” In light of this coming Sunday, I have decided to include it below as it is a classic example of just what made Ronald Reagan that “classic” brand of compassion, genuineness, integrity, and character mixed with that no-nonsense toughness that makes a successful president a great leader:
Given the dire state of the economy facing Ronald Reagan when he assumed the Presidency, it would have been understandable had he focused exclusively on those challenges. But he came to office with a broad agenda, and there were many important problems to solve. One that was of particular importance to the President was the how well the government served the people. He firmly believed that the government should work for the people, not the other way around. Governor and then President Reagan thought of the people as his boss, who, by electing him, had hired him to do the job. Throughout his career, Ronald Reagan was fond of telling true stories about the illogical and often mind-boggling – not to mention exasperating – inefficiency of the Federal bureaucracy. Although he did so with a smile, underlying the story-telling was a deep frustration. He vowed that if he ever had an opportunity to do something about it, he would. And he did. Not only did his Administration reduce the burden of excessive, redundant and unnecessary paperwork on businesses working with the government, it made changes that affected real people on a daily basis. When President Reagan took office, it took seven weeks to get a Social Security card and 43 days to get a passport. By the time he left, either one – or both – could be had in just 10 days.
As much as he used his own passport over the years, and as exotic and exciting as some of his foreign trips were, Ronald Reagan always looked forward to coming home. He genuinely loved America. From his beloved California to the New York Island, he was in awe of our country’s sheer beauty. Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountains’ majesties, oceans white with foam were not just words to him. It was how he saw America. He believed he had a special responsibility to protect the country’s environment and to preserve its natural beauty. President Reagan did more than just talk about it. The Reagan Administration was the first to establish a special unit at the Department of Justice to prosecute criminal polluters.
Polluters were not the only criminals who President Reagan intended to put out of business. Keeping people safe was always a top-of-agenda item for the Reagan Administration. It took a while, but in 1984, Congress passed the President’s Comprehensive Crime Control Act, which kept dangerous people behind bars, restricted the use of the insanity defense, reviewed Federal sentencing guidelines and toughened penalties for drug dealers and others. That same year, the President signed another very significant piece of legislation which made child pornography a separate criminal offense. The effect of the President’s work to prevent crime and put criminals where they belonged was dramatic. Nearly 2 million fewer households were hit by crime in 1987 than in 1980.
Preventing crime and locking up bad guys was only part of what President Reagan did to ensure justice for all. Another key component of his program was the appointment of judges who would faithfully interpret the Constitution rather than legislate from the bench. Of all the judicial appointments made by the President, none was more historically significant than Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. When Ronald Reagan became the first President to nominate a woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court, he shattered a glass ceiling that had been in place since the founding of the country, forever changing not only the judiciary, but the role of women in our society. Little girls everywhere could now aspire to heights previously unavailable to them.
In many ways, President Reagan’s nomination of Sandra Day O’Connor was emblematic of how he viewed people – without an iota of prejudice. Gender, race ethnicity and religion just did not matter to him in the slightest. They were never factors in his decision making, other than when people were being discriminated against. When that happened, President Reagan was a tenacious fighter for equal rights. Under his leadership, the Federal government equaled or surpassed the number of civil rights cases filed by any previous Administration in virtually every enforcement category. Principal civil rights organizations received almost 18% more in funding.
President Reagan never forgot what it was like to grow up in a household with very limited financial means. He knew its impact on quality of life and helping the poor escape poverty was something he cared about deeply. Under his leadership, Federal spending for basic low-income assistance programs rose by 40%. The President also knew that a good education was the ticket out of poverty, and when his National Commission on Excellence in Education termed the U.S “A Nation at Risk” because of declining educational quality, he called for a variety of remedies including overall higher standards and accountability, parental choice and merit pay for teachers and principals.
Ronald Reagan was the first President to address the issue of HIV and AIDS. He established a Presidential Commission and consulted with Government agencies and private groups, after which a broad plan to fight the disease was implemented. Billions of dollars were committed for research, regulations making it difficult to get drugs to patients were eliminated and educational programs were developed, all of which were underpinned by a message of empathy for those infected. In a speech to the American Foundation for AIDS Research in May, 1987 he said:
“What our citizens must know is this: America faces a disease that is fatal and spreading. And this calls for urgency, not panic. It calls for compassion, not blame. And it calls for understanding, not ignorance. It’s also important that America not reject those who have the disease, but care for them with dignity and kindness.”
There was not a day during his eight years in the White House that Ronald Reagan did not work to ensure the domestic tranquility written about in the very first sentence of the Constitution. Forming a more perfect union was why he sought the Presidency in the first place, and was his “north star.”
Thank you, President Reagan, for instilling in us the value of character, integrity and the importance of aiming for that “north star.” The more I study you, the more I am reminded just how great a country I live in. Your dream for a better, stronger America lives on, and it is my hope that Americans will realize the importance of your legacy and the way in which you restored the American dream.
I leave you with the insight from Americans, who like me, continue to be inspired by this great man:
What an amazing political leader and role model!!! He once said that the American people see themselves in him… and that we feel as if he is one of us, how true is that? He was a type of father figure to so many of us. He is definitely missed!
I loved Reagan because he was always positive in the face of doubt and sadness. He loved this country more than most people and would not get mad. He used humor and commonsense to win a argument.
President Reagan was the epitome of class, of skill and of true leadership. He did not side with the special interests or the lobbyists, but rather he stood up for every man, woman and child; both the born and unborn.
As someone from outside of the United States, I’m glad to think back a few years and of course not only think of President Reagan but of Margaret Thatcher too. They really were two peas of the same pod. Strong, fearless and determined. Through everything, President Reagan and America were there with their hand out ready to help us, and the same of course went for Great Britain. We were two nations joined under the magnificent leadership of two great leaders. So not only to President Reagan, but to the USA: Thank you! Thank you for always having our backs.
People often wonder what there is left to act as a testament to President Reagan and all he stood for. I say look around! The fact that there is still freedom in the world is down to many people. And one of those people is Ronald Reagan.
-Daniel from the UK
In 1986, I was outside with my friends shooting off fireworks. As a young twenty-something, we were just having a great time. I went into my house to go to the bathroom and didn’t come back out until about 45 minutes later. I watched that speech, glued to the couch with my parents, knowing that my friends were outside waiting for me. I didn’t care. I was stuck to the set, watching the speech. Once they started shooting off the fireworks in New York, I went back outside. When my friend Ed asked where I was, I told him about the speech. He asked why I didn’t come and get him. I told him, I couldn’t move from the TV. (Watch the speech here.)
President Reagan, thanks for the memories!!! I would like to close this post by sharing what a friend recently told me. He said that we could really use another Ronald Reagan. Yes… yes we could!!!

Remember how a large number of House of Representative members took the time to read the Constitution on the House floor? Well, it looks as if the members of the Senate should consider doing the very same, well at least if your name is Chuck Schumer, that is. Recently, on CNN‘s State of the Union, he said the following about the three branches of government:
We Have three Branches of Government. We Have a House, a Senate and a President.
The House, the Senate and the President- yes, you read it right. Is that your final answer, Senator Schumer? Because if it is, you’re wrong. Perhaps if you were listening in history class or even to your constituents, you would realize that the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial. I know this, and I bet if you asked a fifth-grade class, the majority of them would know this too, but do the media choose to report this misstep? If you said, “no,” then you are exactly right. Now, imagine if the tables were turned and Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann had said such a thing. The media would turn around and make it the top story on the five o’clock news. Leftist so-called journalists like Chris Matthews would get all giddy and develop a tingling all over just describing every epic detail of what was said- everything from the way they said it, to whether or not they were looking at the camera. I guarantee it!
This is yet another example of the world we live in today. While it is perfectly all right for a liberal, senior member of the Senate to screw up, it is intolerable and down-right unintelligent if a member of the Republican party were to so much as utter the occasional “umm” during an interview. This is the world we live in today. A world in which liberals can mess up and misstate elements of American history, but everyone else better watch their “p’s” and “q’s.” How ironic is this coming from a man who said this shortly after Palin was selected to be John McCain’s running mate:
After the great success of the Democratic convention, the choice of Sarah Palin is surely a Hail Mary pass. It is a real roll of the dice and shows how John McCain, Karl Rove et al realize what a strong position the Obama-Biden team and Democrats in general are in in this election. Certainly the choice of Palin puts to rest any argument about inexperience on the Democratic team and while Palin is a fine person, her lack of experience makes the thought of her assuming the presidency troubling. I particularly look forward to the Biden-Palin debate in Missouri.
Well, Senator Schumer, I guarantee Palin never will utter the same gaffe you made this weekend. Instead of uttering ridiculous statements, I suggest Senator Schumer take a play out of Palin’s playbook and brush up on the history of government- maybe it is time to brush up on the Constitution because until you do, I will be left wondering if you are smarter than the fifth graders you represent…
If Sarah Palin is Snooki, Does this Make President Obama the Situation? A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice
Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on January 19, 2011
As I was getting ready for work this morning, I happened to flip the channel to one of the most fair and balanced news networks in all of television news, good ol’ MSNBC (wink, wink). I had not been listening for a total of two minutes before Sarah Palin’s name came up. Liberal think-tank Donny Deutsch appeared on the Morning Joe panel and had this to say:
Why the fascination (with Sarah Palin)? It’s very simple, and I’m not going to be glib here. She is Snooki. It’s the same math. A younger generation– they want to watch this character with big character, with big hair who’s funny; you don’t know she’s going to say. It’s no different, but for a higher demographic! We watch her, she’s interesting looking… what’s she going to say? She’s campy, she’s kitschy, it’s telegenic, its television, its entertaining that’s the fascination. Beginning, middle and end of story, she’s Snooki.
Really, Donny, Snooki??? When you did not think the liberal left’s fascination could not get anymore creepy or delusional, it does. This clearly is because Sarah Palin is a political rock star whom the liberal left cannot help, but talk about constantly throughout each news cycle While objectively reporting the facts is one thing, making asinine comments is another. After Deutsch’s comments, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski seemed to cowardly distance themselves by quickly moving on to their next topic, sweeping his comments under the rug, which caused me to believe even they believed his comments were both tacky and way off base.
What Deutsch does not seem to understand is that when he compares a woman like Sarah to a star of childish reality show, he is doing a huge disservice to both politics and women. By comparing Sarah to this reality starlet, Mr. Deutsch is basically saying Sarah Palin is only talked about for sheer entertainment value, not the intellectual. Would he compare President Obama to Snooki’s co-star, the Situation? I know this is a very extreme comparison, but it is no different than the comparison Deutsch made this morning. After all, then-candidate Obama based his whole presidential campaign around his charisma and picture-perfect family instead of his voting record and time as a member of the Senate. During the 2008 campaign, people were hanging on then-candidate Obama’s every word, fainting along the campaign trail at the mere sight of him. I wonder if Mr. Deutsch remembers this. Perhaps Mr. Deutsch should stay off the reality trip and stick to reporting on business issues, unless, of course, he is looking to be hired by an entertainment news agency. But then again, I do not think he would last a day with his ridiculous comparisons and utter disregard for reporting the facts and the truth.

The PDS, liberal infested Anchorage Daily News is at it again. While trashing Sarah Palin is a regular occurrence over at this liberal news rag, they have set their sick, twisted sights on attacking her 20-year-old daughter, Bristol. The ADN has published a piece by Paul Jenkins, editor of the Anchorage Daily Planet. Jenkins has written a hate-filled piece criticizing Bristol for having the nerve to defend her mother and herself against the “haters” during her time as a contestant on ABC‘s Dancing with the Stars. Get this: It seems as if Jenkins’ main beef with Bristol stems from the fact that Bristol called out those who have attacked her and her mom. Oh, how scandalous:
In the Palins’ strange world, haters lurk always just in the shadows, enemies of all that is decent. They are out to sink Bristol’s boat, to make her mother’s struggling television show even more boring than it is — the high point so far was Bristol’s aggravated battery on a halibut — and to sideline mom’s political aspirations, and not necessarily in that order. (As a matter of full disclosure, I have a “Haters” T-shirt and am wearing it as I write this, but I know haters, and I’m no hater. It takes too much energy. I’m more of a cranky disliker.)
It is clear that the only delusional person here is the author of this ridiculous piece. Last I checked, DWTS had its highest ratings ever AND Sarah Palin’s Alaska was the most-watched series premiere in TLC‘s history.I guess Jenkins thinks outdoor lovers like the Palins are just a boring bunch of losers. I’d hate to think how he would describe himself. After all, what kind of a person would admit to wearing a “Haters” t-shirt? That’s almost as bad as someone waking around with the word “loser” on his forehead, but I am not putting it past someone of Jenkins’ caliber to do something like that either.
It is apparent that Jenkins needs to get a life. Did it ever occur to him that the Palin family are loved and adored by many? I find it ironic that as the mainstream, lamestream media find their readership numbers on the verge of nonexistent, the more the Palin family is finding continued success. This illustrates just how powerful this family is. It is apparent that Jenkins is jealous as is the case with so many Palin-family haters. Instead of writing about something newsworthy, Jenkins wasted perfectly good newspaper space to attack a young woman who never so much as looked in his direction. Yet, this how the typical PDS-infected folks seem to lead their lives now-a-days. Jenkins continues his rant:
Palin’s persistent use of the term now has been embraced by her daughter. For Bristol, one can only hope such insanity will pass; that she will see her life should be more than hating haters; that sometimes our worst enemies can be our best friends; that not all critics deserve “a big middle finger.” But for the lovely Sarah P., a woman toying with the notion of being president of the United States, it may be too late.
Her world is very black and very white. I just hate that.
If Mr. Jenkins had any class whatsoever, he would have realized a long time ago that the Palins don’t give a darn about the media and what they think. Bristol Palin is a strong, fierce, determined young woman who will do great things during her lifetime- no doubt about it. I think it is time for Mr. Jenkins and his PDS-deranged friends to find a better way to spend their time. After all, last time I checked, it is Christmastime, a time for giving. I suggest Mr. Jenkins repay the crappy ADN for publishing his piece by going out there and getting them a few more readers. Good luck finding those readers. Note to the ADN subscriber department: I have a feeling people will be too busy watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska to answer the door or pick up the phone.
