The Palins, Margaret Cho and the Leftiverse

Posted by joshpainter on December 5, 2010

“My mom did not ‘force’ me to go on DWTS”
*
Leftists live in an alternate universe where lies and rumors become their “truth,” and the laws of nature and even common sense don’t apply as they do in the real universe. In the liberal “leftiverse,” rumors, especially those about All Things Palin, are accepted as Gospel, while the Gospels themselves are questioned by many of the leftiverse’s inhabitants. For example, “dirt” on Sarah Palin and her family in the leftiverse media water cooler doesn’t settle at the bottom; it percolates very rapidly to the top. It begins on gossip websites and moonbat blogs, both of which are fueled by Haterade, and is quickly sucked upwards to major media outlets such as CBS and CNN.

Case in point: The gossip websites were all abuzz last week with a rumor that Bristol’s onetime fellow DWTS contestant Margaret Cho had repeated on her personal blog, and in no time at all the rumor had become “Marquee” news at CNN:

“I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it,” Cho wrote on her blog on November 29.

“Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way.”

To sum things up, Cho explained, “Instead of being supposedly ‘handicapped’ by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an ‘asset’ – a celebrity beloved for her dancing.”

[...]

“Keep in mind there are other forces at work here and it’s not just for the love of dance,” she noted, adding, “Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed.”

There was just one major problem with this rumor: It wasn’t true. But in the leftiverse, facts are not checked for veracity, and no one who passed this lie on bothered to ask Bristol — not Cho, not the gossip reporters, not the lamestream major media outlets. The lie became a rumor, and the rumor became “news.” This is commonplace in the leftiverse, the same alternate reality in which Tina Fey’s joke that “Sarah Palin could see Russia from her house” was attributed to Gov. Palin herself, not the SNL character.

Bristol Palin set the record straight on Facebook late Saturday night:

I was somewhat taken aback to read about me in a blog by my friend and fellow contestant, Margaret Cho. In a post she called “Pistol Whipped” she wrote that “the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly . . . for not winning the election,and so she told Bristol she “owed” it to her to do DWTS . . . .” Let me shamelessly steal from Saturday Night Live: “Really, Margaret? Really?”

I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many “facts” wrong in so few sentences. Let me be blunt: my mom did not “force” me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision. After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in, both my mom and my dad became my number one supporters. Anyone who watched the show could tell I performed better, and I felt better about myself, when they were in the audience. I wanted to make them both proud, but politics had nothing to do with it. Loving my parents had everything to do with it.

It saddens me that people would think that my mom would “blame” me for anything that occurred in the 2008 election–much less “harshly” and “openly.” I think that canard (there, I said it again), has been floating around since then also. I will set the record straight, though my mom already did in her bestselling book “Going Rogue”; there were a number of reasons President Obama won in 2008, but the primary reason was that the economy was starting to falter and the majority of voters thought Obama could do a better job than my mom and John McCain. It turns out, two years later, the majority of voters were wrong, but we can talk about that another time. The point is, I seriously doubt anyone who considers herself a student of American politics truly believes I impacted even one vote in that election.

There you have it. Why do I want to set the record straight? Because it is this type of hurtful and false narrative that people promote to make my mom look bad. For 20 years my mom had my back–and for the rest of my life I will have hers.

To my friend Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don’t ever rely on “sources” who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time.

[More]

Bristol has learned, as her mom learned from the School of Slings and Arrows, to quickly shoot down these lies from the leftiverse before they take hold in the real one. If Cho, who has been viciously attacking Bristol’s mom since long before she met The Pistol on DWTS, had only shown her new friend Bristol the consideration and common decency any real friend has for another by going to the 20-year-old to check out the rumor before going public with it on her blog, Bristol’s Facebook post would not have been necessary. But in the leftiverse politics trumps all, even friendship.  Cho is the kind of “friend” that will run a sword through Bristol to try to get to Sarah, her intended target. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Gov. Palin’s publisher sues Gawker for copyright infringement

Posted by joshpainter on November 20, 2010

HarperCollins, the publisher of Sarah Palin’s forthcoming second book, filed a federal lawsuit against Gawker Media Friday for leaking pages of America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag ahead of its November 23 release date:

Two days before the Manhattan filing, gutter website Gawker published images of more than 20 of the open book’s pages. Gov. Palin tweeted Thursday, “Isn’t that illegal?”

Her publisher contends it is. The lawsuit asks that Gawker be banned from what it terms “further copyright infringement” and that Gawker deliver the source material to the publisher so it can be destroyed. HarperCollins is also seeking financial damages.

Gawker did not immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment Friday evening, but an item published the day before and titled “Sarah Palin Is Mad at Us for Leaking Pages From Her Book” defended the blog’s actions and linked to websites defining the fair use doctrine of copyright law.

The blog was not the first site to publish excerpts from the book, which has been billed as a tribute to American values, but it refused to take them down after receiving a letter demanding that it do so, the lawsuit said. The Associated Press bought a copy of the book ahead of its Nov. 23 release date.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate’s first book, the memoir Going Rogue: An American Life, has sold over 2.7 million copies.

A few grains of salt to take with that WSJ/NBC Poll

Posted by joshpainter on September 29, 2010

*
We’re talking about the poll that the lamestream media is hyping today as supposedly showing Democrats getting more excited about the midterm elections. You know, the one which allegedly shows that Bill Clinton is the most popular politician in the country and purports that Sarah Palin has lower approval ratings than Harry Reid? Yes, that one. Well, the devil is in the internals, as we always like to say when we’re talking about polls. So here are a few grains of salt that need to be taken with this poll:

FACTUALS: Now I am going to ask you a few questions for statistical purposes only.

QP1a Now, many people we’ve talked with tonight were unable to vote in primary elections this year, how about you, did you vote in a 2010 primary election in your state? (IF “YES,” THEN ASK:) And, did you vote in the
Democratic or Republican Party Primary?+
Yes, voted in a Republican Party Primary …………… 28
Yes, voted in a Democratic Party Primary……………. 33
Yes, voted in an Open Primary (VOL) ……………… 4
No, did not vote in any primaries ……………………….. 34
Not sure …………………………………………………….. 1
+ Results shown reflect responses among registered voters.

F1b/c. A lot of people are unable to get out and vote for many reasons. Did you happen to vote in last November’s election for president? (IF “YES,” ASK:) For whom did you vote — Barack Obama, John McCain, or someone else?
Yes, Voted 82
Voted for Barack Obama……………. 41
Voted for John McCain………………. 31
Voted for someone else …………….. 5
Not sure …………………………………. 5
No, Did Not Vote ………………………. 18
Not sure ……………………………….. -

[...]

QF4 Generally speaking, do you think of yourself as (ROTATE:) a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, or something else? (IF “DEMOCRAT” OR “REPUBLICAN,” ASK:) Would you call yourself a strong (Democrat/Republican) or not a very strong (Democrat/Republican)? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “NOT VERY STRONG DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN.”) (IF “INDEPENDENT,” ASK:) Do you think of yourself as closer to the Republican Party, closer to the Democratic Party, or do you think of yourself as strictly independent? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “STRICTLY INDEPENDENT.”)
Strong Democrat ……………………… 20
Not very strong Democrat ………….. 15
Independent/lean Democrat……….. 8
Strictly Independent ………………….. 13
Independent/lean Republican……… 11
Not very strong Republican………… 12
Strong Republican……………………. 14
Other (VOL) ……………………………. 5
Not sure ……………………………….. 2

[...]

QF9 Do you have any children in pre-school, kindergarten to fifth grade, middle school, or high school currently living in your household? (IF YES, SPECIFY)(ACCEPT ALL THAT APPLY)
Total Yes, PreK-12th Grade 32
Yes, Pre-school……………………………………………… 10
Yes, K-5th grade …………………………………………….. 13
Yes, Middle School…………………………………………. 9
Yes, High school ……………………………………………. 10
Yes, have kids at home out of high school (VOL) .. 3
No, no kids ………………………………………………….. 61
Not sure ……………………………………………………… 4

Okay, let’s get this straight… The sample surveyed for this poll was not limited to likely voters or even registered voters. The poll oversampled Democrat primary voters over Republican primary voters by 5 points and strong Democrats over strong Republicans by 6 points. It sampled Obama voters over McCain voters by 10 points (even though Obama’s actual margin of victory over McCain was 7 points in the 2008 election). And a whopping 61 percent of the people surveyed don’t have any children? Where was this poll conducted, in a singles apartment building in Manhattan?

“Curiouser and curiouser,” said Alice…

Woman at the Mercy of Obama’s Death Panel

Posted by Ron Devito on August 10, 2009

Watch the short video clip below, and tell me it doesn’t hit you hard. Tell me your heart doesn’t just break as you watch this concerned woman before a mere man–President Obama–to ask if he would find it in his heart to allow her mom medical care even at her late age. His response was that some people may be better off if they just take a pill! There is something completely sick about this. The words “God, bless America” are taking on a whole new meaning for us. It’s no longer just a little phrase we utter out of habit. Now it’s becoming the prayer it always should have been, rising up from the depths of our collective souls. God, please bless America.

America, we cannot give up our freedoms and rights in exchange for a date to sit imploringly before someone who holds our lives and the lives of our loved ones in his hands. Look, I don’t care if you’re a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent, or absolutely nothing, you deserve better. Who is Obama that this woman should have to ask him if he would consider her mother’s joy and spirit in his decision as to whether she can be given health care? Is he God?! The government has no right to make these kinds of decisions. America, you have got to keep standing up and speaking out. Congress, you have got to read the health care bill. We all need to read it. Otherwise, this is the just the beginning of a seriously diabolical time in our history. Some were outraged when Sarah Palin had the courage to call the proposed “death panel” by its true name: “evil.” But you look at the video and tell me you don’t agree.
