Kathy Griffin: PDS Fueled by Hate and Chutzpah

Posted by Ron Devito on March 6, 2010

Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS) truly knows no bounds. Blind, searing hatred mixed with chutzpah is its fuel. Witness the case of D-List Queen Extraordinaire Kathy Griffin, who was widely reported to have “taken aim at Sarah Palin” in an Anchorage comedy show, where she was “skewered.” The brief AP dispatch, which made international news stated that none other than Levi Johnston introduced Griffin at her show and that she stopped by the Palins’ house – uninvited and without permission – to leave a last-minute invite to her show. She then proceeded to go to the start of the Iditarod – Alaska’s state sport – with Wasilla as its home. What business did Griffin have being there? None. Meanwhile, Governor Palin graciously took time out of her schedule to cut a video advertisement for the Iditarod, and did not charge one penny for her time. “Those inescapable Sarah Palin ads for the Iditarod’s subscription Web site were filmed just last Sunday, with Palin volunteering her time, Iditarod director Stan Hooley said [March 5, 2010]” (Hopkins, 2010, ¶1). “Palin wasn’t paid for the spot, [Hooley] said. ‘She has absolutely volunteered for it’” (Hopkins, 2010, ¶8).

Iditarod Advertisement retrieved from PalinTV.

Griffin has had nothing good to say about the Palins, as evidenced by the bashing on her own website. Her choice of Levi Johnston as a friend reveals much about the content of her character, none of it good. Johnston has been grossly derelict in the care of his child and has chosen to pursue the life of a soft-core porn star, rather than working an honest job and providing for the family he created. Bristol is the one working, going to school and raising Tripp. Griffin is reputed to be something of a cougar on the prowl. Could Levi Johnston be her latest quarry? In any case, birds of a feather flock together, or putting it another way – they deserve each other.

Declaring someone your enemy, entering upon her private property to invite her to a forum where your sole intent is to bash her, then going to the start of an event for which your declared enemy produced a free ad is the height of chutzpah and delusion of grandeur.

Perhaps the most appropriate next step for this D-List queen is to take over the “F list.” “F” as in “FAIL,” along with the rest of the “PDS” afflicted.

Sarah Palin Speaks to Ohio Right to Life and Donates Her Speaking Fee

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 6, 2010


Governor Palin spoke in Columbus, Ohio on Friday night at a Right to Life event.  She was scheduled to attend a fundraiser in Cleveland, Ohio the following morning to help raise money for the Right to Life chapters of both cities.

Joe Hallett at The Columbus Dispatch reports:

About 12 weeks into her pregnancy for her fifth child, then Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin learned that she would have a second son.

She also learned that he would be born with Down syndrome.

A few months later, Palin learned that her teenage daughter, Bristol, was pregnant out of wedlock.

Those pregnancies, Palin told a Columbus audience last night, gave her empathy for the decision “women pregnant in less than ideal circumstances” must face and tested her own anti-abortion commitment.

“God, are you going to ask me to walk the walk and not just talk the talk of being a pro-life advocate,” Palin said she asked in prayer.

After both babies were born, Palin said, she and her family learned “that what seems like life’s greatest challenges in the moment are the greatest blessings in the end.”

Largely forgoing politics, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee told her intensely personal story in a 35-minute speech to more than 3,000 gathered for an Ohio Right to Life Society fundraiser at the Aladdin Shrine Center.

The event was closed to the media, but The Dispatch got access by buying a $40 ticket.

Showing her commitment to the cause, Palin said she would return her “generous” speaking fee to Ohio Right to Life after taxes are withdrawn. It was not known how much Palin was being paid for the speech.

[…]

Last night, however, Palin was focused on energizing anti-abortion advocates, saying groups like Ohio Right to Life “absolutely transformed, changed my life” by supporting her through trying times.

“The truest measure of a society,” she said, “is how we treat those who are unable to defend or speak for themselves.”

Viewed as a leading contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, Palin only briefly delved into politics, criticizing President Barack Obama for proposing a new version of health-care reform that would fund community groups without restricting whether they use money for abortions.

Referring to it as “Obamacare,” Palin said, “For me, it was the last straw.”

Palin was introduced by Chris Spielman, the former Ohio State and NFL football player, who movingly discussed the decisions he and his late wife faced while she was pregnant with their fourth child and undergoing cancer treatments. Stefanie Spielman lost her battle with breast cancer Nov. 19 at age 42.

Palin called Ohio “near and dear to me,” thanking Buckeye supporters “for the adventure my family’s going through.”

Palin, 46, has drawn big crowds of late in Columbus, including Nov. 20 when thousands stood in line outside the Borders bookstore on Sawmill Road for her autograph on Going Rogue, her best-selling autobiography.

She first appeared in the city Aug. 29, 2008, when she and Arizona Sen. John McCain shopped at the Buckeye Corner store on Lane Avenue hours after McCain introduced her as his running mate in Dayton.

After that, Palin held more presidential campaign events in Ohio than any other state and her political action committee, SarahPAC, has donated $5,000 and $3,500, respectively, to the Republican campaigns of John Kasich for governor and Rob Portman for U.S. Senate.

[…]

Today, Palin was to headline a lunch at the home of Cleveland-area insurance executive Umberto Fedeli to raise money for the Ohio and Cleveland chapters of Right to Life.

Who’s Afraid of Big Bad Palin? (Update: Audience Member Debunks Laugh Track Lie)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 6, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

I’ve had a few things going on lately and therefore have not been blogging much, but I see that Palinphobia–or shall we call it by its more recognizable name, Palin Derangement Syndrome?–has not come any closer to being cured. In fact, in the last few days alone, the Left’s absolute fear of Governor Palin has reached an all-time high. I recommend meds, but I’m not a doctor, so take that for what it’s worth.

I dealt with the first rumor here–the assertion that the Palins will star in a reality show when, in fact, Alaska will be the subject of the series. That one was pretty easy to debunk, although the haters will use anything to try to paint Governor Palin as a limelight-seeker. What they won’t tell you is that she is simply living up to the promise she made, upon resigning as governor, to promote the state she loves. The bogus ethics complaint filers did all that they could to bankrupt the state they claim to love, while the governor had the common sense and dignity to step aside so as not to allow them to continue, knowing she could help more from outside the governor’s office. This project will aid in that.

Let’s give the first rumormongers the benefit of the doubt and say they were simply mistaken people with no ill-intent at all. But here comes the next falsehood, surely a flat-out lie. Governor Palin, some family members, and friends were asked to stop by the Oscar gifting suite during her trip to California. Haters, like the Huff and Puff, once again delighted in reporting anything that would make her look bad. Truth is not a requirement when it comes to her. The goal is to demean and deride.

They reported that “the group was loading up on freebies.” They went on to state:

Or, in common-sense language, Palin and her handlers, “practically cleaned out the suite.”

Another unnamed source, from HollywoodLife.com, says that the former Vice Presidential candidate was intent on spreading all that wealth around her own circle. “She insisted every person in her huge entourage get something, and there were assistants, nannies, security – insanity!” The same source also said that security swept the venue and would not allow photos, which are often expected by companies to use as promotion in exchange for the free products.

Eonline had to get in the lying act also–can’t have other people surpassing them in Operation Take Down Palin.

Here’s their lie:

The Fox News contributor and one-time vice presidental hopeful showed up to Silver Spoon’s Oscar Suite in West Hollywood yesterday, benefiting the Red Cross.

But like all politicians, Sarah and her crew were hardly gems when the cameras weren’t rolling…

“They were like locusts,” says one vendor at the suite, regarding Palin and her large group of hangers-on. “She showed up with like 20 people, and they immediately swarmed the place taking everything!”

S.P. was accompanied by daughter Willow, grandson Tripp and a bunch of female handlers. A source at the suite said Palin was stopping in while daughter Bristol was doing a photo shoot nearby.

We’re told Palin was quite the prima donna and that she insisted the suite be opened two hours early so she could come when no looky-loos would be around.

[…]

Palin grabbed some oversize sweatshirts and tie-dyed “jeggings” for Bristol, got a blowout by colorist Erick Orellana from the Chris McMillan Salon, along with snatching up jewelry from Pascal Mouawad, Skagen Watches, Lash Food and 40 pairs of Aiaiai headphones.

A spokesperson for Aiaiai tells us Sarah said “they would be great for working out.”

But was Sarah just grabby ‘n’ whiny for a good cause? The press release for the suite states Palin gave over $1,700 dollars to the Red Cross and planned to donate what she received at the suite to charity.

Oh, really?

Too fab she gave money, but we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag.

What liars! Here’s the truth, directly from Melissa Lemer, the co-owner of the Silver Spoon (emphasis mine).

The Silver Spoon, a company owned and operated by women and established with a firm belief in supporting women in business and leadership, invited Governor Sarah Palin and her family to participate in a charitable function sponsored by The Silver Spoon and the Red Cross to support the Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts in Haiti. Governor Palin graciously accepted since it was in support of such a worthy and timely cause. The governor arrived with a small group about 15 minutes prior to our store’s official opening; and upon arrival, she and her entire group gave generous donations to the cause. We offered to open early to accommodate her schedule; she did not ask us to open early. The other vendors routinely set up an hour before the event opens, so they were already there when the governor arrived. No one was asked to come in early. When Governor Palin arrived, she and her guests made generous donations. I escorted her around and introduced her to every vendor, and they talked to her about their products and gifted her with samples. She never asked for anything but politely accepted the products. The governor and her family and guests were very gracious and respectful to everyone. We asked and the governor happily agreed to take a photo with the American Red Cross staff and the staff of The Silver Spoon. The governor stayed for a total of about 35 minutes, thanked everyone, made an additional generous personal donation pledge to the Red Cross, and then departed.

The stories currently circulating about Governor Palin’s attendance at our event are total fabrications. Just one example of the many falsehoods is the ridiculous idea that Governor Palin walked away with 40 AIAIAI headphones. In reality, she was given two pairs of AIAIAI headphones – one for herself and one for her daughter Bristol who could not attend the event. The idea that she took 40 pairs is an outrageous falsehood. It would have been impossible because the vendors only bring around 100 items for the entire two day event. They would have run out of product after an hour of opening yesterday.

Just to clarify things, the entire point of giving someone a swag bag is to have them take your product and hopefully purchase more. The whole point of giving away products is to “give them away.” That’s why we call this type of event style a “gifting suite.”

We would like an immediate retraction and an apology to The Silver Spoon, its vendors, and especially to Governor Sarah Palin.

Read Ms. Lemer’s official statement here.

Does anyone care about the truth anymore? One or two people even? Andrew Breitbart is one who has joined Ms. Lemer in requesting a retraction.

He ends his request with this:

Exit question: If Palin is so green, so dumb, and so ripe for satire as E! Online and the rest of the mainstream media says she is, why does the left need to fabricate or wildly exaggerate stories to impugn her character? If she’s so bad, prove it with the truth.

Read his entire article here.

Is the Left this frightened of the former governor, a private citizen, that they will stoop to absolutely anything to discredit her? Are they that pitiful? My goodness, one would think that after time and time of looking like complete loons, they would muster just a shred of dignity and stop this nonsensical lying. Somebody pass them the memo that says the American people are growing weary of being misled. Some Americans may not agree with every decision the governor makes. Some clearly do not subscribe to her worldview. But most rational, decent human beings want their opinions based in reality, not lies by people determined to manipulate their thinking. I agree with Breitbart. If Governor Palin were really the creep the Left wants us to believe she is, it would be evident in the life that she lives. Why then would spreading lies be necessary? The answer is simple: it wouldn’t be. They resort to it because they simply have nothing else with which to work.

Here’s yet another example, for Palin Derangement Syndrome knows no end. We are aware that Governor Palin was a hit on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. C4P highlighted many of the comments about it in the article, “Reactions to Governor Palin’s Tonight Show Appearance.” She even did a comedy routine, which was hilarious. Now, the Left is so desperate they have accused The Tonight Show of using laugh tracks. Wow, they get more and more pathetic with each passing day.

TBTM Julie of the Daily Kos writes:

I’ve dealt with sound engineering for 30 years, as a film maker, interviewer, musician, working with master reel to reel tapes/decks at EMS Music in Seattle in the 80’s as a sound duplication engineer, or setting sound levels for my and other bands in live situations at shows. I won a Hollywood award for animation in 2000. I know sound. And it’s my opinion that audio portions of Sarah Palin’s March 2nd appearance on Jay Leno’s Tonight show were added or amplified, edited before broadcast to make it appear that Sarah Palin was more welcome than she was.

I know. I was there.

But NBC is calling out the lie. James Hibberd’s The Live Feed reports NBC’s denial.

NBC is denying a report that “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” boosted apparent audience enthusiasm for Sarah Palin’s appearance by using a laugh track.

[…]

Asked about the audio track, NBC replied, “Neither the audio nor the laughs were enhanced for Sarah Palin’s segments on ‘The Tonight Show.'”

Surely even NBC’s denial will face the spin we’ve come to expect, but they ought to know what really went down, right? Besides, the network hasn’t exactly been the governor’s best friend. Why would they guard and protect her now?

Yes, Palin Derangement Syndrome is in full swing, as usual. The lies and attacks keep on coming–and they’re intensifying. Fear produces that kind of reaction in people.

(H/T C4P & US4P)

Update (H/T Sinistar): RonDog was in the audience during Governor Palin’s appearance on The Tonight Show. What does he call this laugh track rumor? BS (emphasis NOT added!).

He writes:

In perhaps the worst possible development for the radical left since the discovery of Karl Rove’s now infamous “Weather Machine,” Governor Palin’s recently exposed top secret “laugh track” machine appears to also have even more dastardly powers than were originally feared.

In addition to altering the space-time continuum, and reprogramming the master computers at NBC – to cause laughter during Sarah’s monologue to appear where none had been before, and send well-intentioned jeers and “groans” from her wannabe stalkers into the abyss – this mysterious device apparently also exerts some kind of irresistible mind control powers over the loyal fans of “American Idol” megastar Adam Lambert, causing many of them to actually like the producer of the upcoming new “Alaska Valley Days” TV series, Governor Sarah Palin.

Or, at least, that’s what the Kos Kids would like you to believe.

Many of those wacky ultra-left “conspiracy-mongers” who post at such online cesspools as the Daily Kos, Huffpo and DU have been foaming at the mouth all week about Sarah’s “rock star” performance during for last week’s taping of “Day Two” of Jay Leno’s return to the traditional 11:35 pm time slot for the “Tonight Show.”

Since I was actually in the studio audience last week when Governor Palin made her “comedy debut” – with a small band of “Palin palm print”-bearing FReepers (and FRiends) who had crashed the party with the intention of acting as “Ed McMahon” to Sarah’s “Johnny Carson” – I call BS on their widely-reported, but easily-debunked, “laugh track” conspiracy theory.

Yep, another lie bites the dust.
