CNN: Giuliani vs. Palin in 2012?

Posted by joshpainter on January 22, 2011

Rudy Giuliani says he’s actually “more likely” to run for president if Sarah Palin does:

In an interview on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Giuliani, who dropped out of the 2008 Republican presidential primary, said running against Palin for the 2012 GOP nomination would show him as a moderate Republican.

“The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have,” Giuliani told CNN’s Piers Morgan in an interview set to air at 9 pm. ET Monday.

[…]

He also addressed Palin’s use of the word “blood libel” that she used in a video following the Arizona shootings. The phrase traditionally refers to a long-standing anti-Semitic myth that Jews murdered children for religious rituals. In present times, the term has come to be understood by some as any false accusation of murder.

Palin used it to criticize many in the media who said her political rhetoric may have contributed to the shootings. She later said her critics were taking issue with the phrasing in hopes of derailing her overall message.

Giuliani said “except for the use of the word, (she was) absolutely right on.”

Rudy is right about one thing — there would certainly be a contrast between the two if both got into the race.

Giuliani has a pro-abortion record, including support of taxpayer-funded abortions and refusal to ban late-term abortions. He also supports the federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. In a high profile case, he sued firearms manufacturers to try to hold them liable for gun violence. Rudy is also something of a flip-flopper, who praised RFK in his law school newspaper and bashed Barry Goldwater. While that can be chalked up to youthful ignorance, his pivot on school prayer is more problematic. Giuliani condemned a New York City public schoolteacher who led her class in prayer, but sent out fundraising letters in 1999 in which he portrayed himself as favoring of school prayer. He was for amnesty for illegal aliens before he was against it, and reissued Ed Koch’s executive order making NYC a sanctuary city for illegals . He also opposed George H.W. Bush’s ban on gay marriage, but in his 2000 campaign for the Senate said that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

Gov. Palin is fiercely pro-life, has always believed marriage is defined as one man and one woman and opposes embryonic stem cell research. She has received a number of awards from the NRA for her support of the Second Amendment. Although she’s not against some sort of path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, she rejects amnesty for them. Gov. Palin has always been suuportive of conservatives, from Goldwater to Jim DeMint and Paul Ryan. She has also been far more consistent on the issues than Giuliani. She has always supported school prayer and opposed gay marriage.

Yes, there are enough clear-cut differences between Rudy G and Gov. Palin on the issues that we say, Bring it on!

MSNBC Axes Keith ‘PDS’ Olbermann

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 22, 2011

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

MSNBC has been a leader in nasty, vile, slanderous rhetoric about Governor Palin. So much so that I simply cannot stomach them; I don’t even try. Keith Olbermann has been among the chiefest of offenders. But no more. If he’s going to continue his PDS-inspired hate-fest, he will have to do it somewhere else. MSNBC, merging with Comcast, axed him last night.

Josh Painter breaks down Olbermann’s record, putting his anti-Palin mania into perspective:

Keith Olberman, has been abruptly fired by MSNBC, apparently during Friday night’s show. More here. Just last month he dubbed Bristol Palin the “Worst Person In The World” for her role as an ambassador for abstinence with the Candies Foundation, and as recently as Tuesday misrepresented a CNN poll in a ridiculous attempt to tie Sarah Palin to the Tucson shootings.

Olby has been a frequent critic of Bristol’s mom beginning just days after she was announced as John McCain’s running mate more than two years ago. On September 17 of 2008, he falsely accused Gov. Palin of cutting funding for the Special Olympics by half in Alaska. He has bashed the first woman to be both governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate as a “phony” and an “idiot,” and has named her “Worst Person In The World” a number of times. The hysterical host also labeled Gov. Palin and other critics of ObamaCare “subhumans,” “ghouls,” and “fiends.” After Sarah Palin called David Letterman out for making a crude sexual “joke” about her teenage daughter Willow, Olbermann called the governor “sanctimonious, holier than thou, exploitative, undignified, pedantic, childish, self-inflicting, insipid, backwards, embarrassing, over-reactive, overreaching” as well as a “delusional lunatic.” Even after all of his slandering of Sarah, the not-too-bright Bathtub Boy couldn’t seem to understand why she would not be itching to appear on the network of hate, referring to her as a coward and throwing in for bad measure “idiot-woman” and “idiot.” And that’s only the highlight reel.

Read more here.

You reap what you sow, and Olbermann has sown much hatred, ill-wishes, and downright evil seeds regarding Governor Palin. I’ll leave it at that.

Media’s “Boycott Palin February” Plan Collapsing As Axis Of Bedevil Fractures Over Cash/Salaciousness

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 22, 2011

The leftist media, who for over two years have engaged in an unrelenting, merciless and, as shown in their gross dereliction of duty linkage of Palin to the terrible deaths in Arizona, rotten attacks on Sarah Palin are split asunder on the merits of their latest efforts to nullify her.

As I reporte
d the left media, having seen that their campaign of vilification and destruction has only toughened Palin, whilst ensuring her supporters circle the wagons around her ever tighter have finally realized that all their efforts are in vain.

The best illustration of this is the remarkable Republican candidate preferential presidential poll over at “Free Republic” where Palin,(as reported by Gary P. Jackson at “A time For Choosing” got 81% support with no one else with a mile of her-obviously a defensive reaction to the media attacks on her.

What they have done is to make Palin armor plated if she runs for the presidency as they, the left, have shot all their arrows and really have nothing left. After their best, or rather worst, efforts over Arizona Palin simply advised she will not go away and will not shut up.

She has, in effect used the Ali “Rope a dope” strategy against them-taking all their best shots, giving a flurry in return off the ropes now and then, and finally, when the left has worn itself out, she lands a knockout blow right on the jaw. (metaphorically speaking of course).

So now they advise they are picking up their toys and going home. Charles Blow, Maddow, and now Dana Millbank advise they won’t comment on her-Millbank for the entire month of February. Millbank also called on his fellow lefties to join him in this silent crusade.

He picked up some support. “ Outside The Beltway“- a sarcastic elitist blog is on board, “ Skippy The Bush Kangaroo” which, as childish as the blog title befits, advised they will do it “to piss Palin off”. She’s sure to take notice of that earth shaking happening. Some blog called “The Impolitic agreed totally with Millbank, and Pamela Leavey at “The Democratic Party” will not mention Palin in February and “perhaps even longer”.

This is of course wonderful news for Palin and the wider public too. For the first time Plain’s statements will be heard without the distorting, sarcastic, hateful comment filter that the New York Times, Washington Post and the leftist blogosphere usually treat them with.

Frankly it would be great if all these assorted critics didn’t mention her ever again-if only.

However, sad to report, the left has fractured on the great Palin cold shoulder crisis amongst them. Andrew “bareback uterus” Sullivan ( I will not link to him as readers might get HIVes) will report in February along with he advises, oddly, “The National Enquirer”. Perhaps he is expecting the long delayed sensational report that Palin is not the mother of her Down syndrome child that he has been looking forwards to for so long.
“The Reaction” calls the boycott “silly, impotent, irresponsible”. Interestingly “impotent’ when used by palin was a word the left pilloried her for-but there wouldn’t be a word in the dictionary which, if used by her, they wouldn’t find a way of attacking her about.

New York Magazine’s Dan Amira doesn’t commit one way or the other but describes one journalist who “took his own life” when trying not to write about Palin. Weigal at Slate, and Alex Alvarez at Mediate won’t take a position, Weigal effectively throwing in the towel on behalf of the left, by advising the reason why the number of pages about Palin is dropping is because the left believes she will “never be elected” but Chris Weigant at Huffington Post straddles the fence- agreeing with Millbank in principle, but will still write about Palin.

That would be expected as Huffpost garners tremendous quantities hits on its special Palin “Big News” page where juveniles rant and rave about her in response to negative story after negative story.

At least the despicable Gawker and Wonkette blogs are honest in the crassness. They admit it is all about eyeballs on the page and as Wonkette says, in a vaguely racist manner “ching ching it’ all about money.”

So a slightly disappointing second day of the great Palin silent February mission but we can still be grateful for the self negating efforts of those who will stick to their non-Palin month. The concern for them is that all that poison will be bottled up for four weeks which might be severely deleterious to their health-we can only wish them well.
