Maddow explains why she fell for Palin/Egypt hoax

Posted by joshpainter on February 2, 2011

We posted Tuesday about how MSPDS host Rachel Maddow, whom the left touts as “brilliant” (like Bill Clinton, she’s a Rhodes scholar), fell hook, line and sinker Monday for an internet spoof by a satirical website that Gov. Sarah Palin was advocating an attack on Egypt.

Maddow took 24 hours to come up with an excuse, and, as Noel Sheppard reports, on Tuesday’s program explained that it was all conservatives’ fault, in particular that diabolical Glenn Beck:

And that was Maddow’s explanation for getting duped by a satirical website: in her view, conservatives – especially Glenn Beck – are saying all kinds of crazy things. As a result, it’s become difficult for her to know what’s real and what’s a spoof.

If this is the case, then maybe she should stop reporting on what conservatives are saying.

If she can no longer discern between fact and fiction, serious commentary and satire, she can’t possibly be trusted or taken seriously about anything, for who knows what her next source will be and whether or not it’s actually legitimate.

Maybe more importantly, how can anyone on television – Rhodes scholar or not! – be deserving of the public’s trust if she blames her own mistakes on others not at all involved in her program?

Sadly, this is par for the course on MSNBC as well as other liberal media outlets.

These are the same people that disgustingly blamed conservatives for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) last month. They’re used to pointing fingers at others without merit.

Leftists have been mocking University of Idaho graduate Sarah Palin for two years for biting down on a prank by two Canadian DJs pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy, claiming it makes her dumb as a rock. By their thinking, then, Rhodes Scholar Rachel Maddow, because she fell for an internet spoof, should be dumb as a bag of dirt.

After all, the DJs got Gov. Palin’s telephone number and called her, putting the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate on the spot. But Maddow and her producers, on their own initiative, found the spoof story and ran with it without bothering to take a couple of seconds to do a Google search to verify the story. So by the left’s own standards, Sarah Palin is not just smarter than the average Grizzly Bear, she’s just as smart — if not smarter — than a Rhodes Scholar.

National Enquirer Report Chelsea Clinton’s Marriage On the Rocks-Media To Give It same Credence They Gave Todd Palin “Hooker” Story-Yeah Right.

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 2, 2011

There are reports attributed to a purported story in the National Enquirer that Chelsea Clinton’s brief marriage so far is on the rocks. Who cares? Not me for sure.

The point here is the utter hypocrisy of the left media/blogosphere who won’t touch this “story” with a ten foot pole. However, when the same rag ran a story that Todd Palin was having relationships with Hookers,then that was grist for the mill and they rejoiced in trumpeting the rubbish-which the Alaskan police confirmed had no basis in fact all-across the media-including Jay Leno’s wisecrack spot.

No doubt the media,if they comment at all about the Clinton report, will say that the Enquirer is a rag and it is just rumor mongering. When the same facts were pointed out to them in the case of the Palin story then it was a different song “The Enquirer got the Edwards story right so there is a good basis for believing their story on Palin”

This shows, once again the incredible slanted, biased attitude the media have towards Palin and their absolute determination to print anything negative about her,whilst ignoring their own peoples supposed transgressions.

Hopefully the public will take notice of this and revolt against these hacks. Thus,should Palin get the nomination she will be bulletproof as no one will believe the lies they create against her anymore.

First Annual “A Poem For Sarah Palin ” Contest Attracting Magnificent Entries #1

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 2, 2011

The response to the inaugural “A Poem For Sarah Palin” has been tremendous, especially in the quality of the presentations. The announcement, both here and at the highly regarded Examiner site by the effervescent  Devonia Smith seems to have brought out the muse in people who have jumped at the chance to express their deep appreciation of Governor Palin.


Here is an example, by entrant “MYSTERIOUS MAVEN” just one of many, and by no means an indication by me that it has preference over other entries-rather it is an illustration of the depth of emotion and heights of creativity Palin has inspired.

A frontiers Ode to the future

Dancing on a glacier of American fortitude she escapes

Scattering a bouquet of ice into a flowering landscape

A frontiers Ode to the future

On the echo of rural towns her courage roams free

Against the rocks meandering the river banks she fires the flare for all to see

A frontiers Ode to the future

Guided by the Trig of willows, the Piper climbs through the air.

On the right wing, a familiar sunrise over Bristol Bay is near

A frontiers Ode to the future

The track of liberty stands on the waters edge

Beneath the roaming salmon jumping the gated ledge

A frontiers Ode to the future

To the left an ominous wind signals a directional change

She hesitates on a prayer, whispers to Todd – strange

A frontiers Ode to the future

As a tear flutter from her face

She cannot deny the impending pace

A frontiers Ode to the future

She knows the end is near and fast approaching

For this journey to continue she must abate the fear encroaching

A frontiers Ode to the future

For liberty to remain standing

She must soar above the hard landing

A frontiers Ode to the future

A frontiers Ode to the future

Ignore Sarah Palin Month Doesn’t Last a Day

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 2, 2011

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

As many already know, some in the lamestream media anointed February Ignore Sarah Palin Month. Let’s not even talk about how pathetically sad it is to have to come face to face with your obsession and the need to get it under control.

When I first heard about it, I wished them well in their recovery and hoped they’d be seeking intensive therapy in the interim. Dana Milbank of The Washington Post–is in need a whole lot of help. He recently confessed:

Though it is embarrassing to admit this in public, I can no longer hide the truth. I have a Sarah Palin problem.

[…]

I feel powerless to control my obsession, even though it cheapens and demeans me.

But today is the first day of the rest of my life. And so, I hereby pledge that, beginning on Feb. 1, 2011, I will not mention Sarah Palin — in print, online or on television — for one month. Furthermore, I call on others in the news media to join me in this pledge of a Palin-free February.

Today is only February 2nd, so how did our friend, Dana, do yesterday on Day 1? Andy Barr wrote an article published in Politico today which highlights Milbank’s struggle to remain silent even on the first day of his self-imposed moratorium. Barr writes:

Dana Milbank is orchestrating a high-profile “moratorium” on covering Palin, kicking off his month-long fast yesterday by doing an interview all about it on ABC’s “Top Line” – and Sarah’s supporters are not amused.

“Do you hate clicks? Do you hate reading your stories?” ABC’s Rick Klein asked the Washington Post columnist, who declared he has “sworn off clicks and readership for the entire month of February, but I’m working about an extended opus about she who will not be named for March 1st.”

Milbank highlighted his lack of commentary by posting on the paper’s website a link of his interview – rife with allusions to and jokes about the former Alaska governor.

Palin’s supporters weren’t happy.

“Milbank couldn’t even get through the first day of his bogus boycott,” wrote a blogger for Texas for Palin, one of a network of Palin-defending sites that dinged the columnist. “This afternoon on the Post Partisan blog, Milbank wrote: ‘I survived Day One of my February Sarah Palin moratorium…’ Sorry, Skippy, but you weren’t even going to mention her name, remember?”

PalinTV – a site set up by Palin supporters to show the governor’s comments in full without the media filter – also smacked Milbank with a sarcastic tweet. “Dana Milbank on ABC today talking for 5 minutes about how he’s not talking about Palin,” it read.

While Dana Milbank can’t find the strength to honor his own Ignore Sarah Palin Month for a day, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC might want to get on board and give it a try. She embarrassed herself greatly yesterday as she reported as fact a satirical story about Governor Palin encouraging an attack on Egypt. One of the side effects of Palin Derangement Syndrome is jumping all over stories about her with no commitment to discovering facts. Another side of effect is not taking responsibility afterwards but blaming others for your ridiculous errors.

Josh of Texas4Palin covered the story. He writes:

We posted Tuesday about how MSPDS host Rachel Maddow, whom the left touts as “brilliant” (like Bill Clinton, she’s a Rhodes scholar), fell hook, line and sinker Monday for an internet spoof by a satirical website that Gov. Sarah Palin was advocating an attack on Egypt.

Maddow took 24 hours to come up with an excuse, and, as Noel Sheppard reports, on Tuesday’s program explained that it was all conservatives’ fault, in particular that diabolical Glenn Beck:

And that was Maddow’s explanation for getting duped by a satirical website: in her view, conservatives – especially Glenn Beck – are saying all kinds of crazy things. As a result, it’s become difficult for her to know what’s real and what’s a spoof.

If this is the case, then maybe she should stop reporting on what conservatives are saying.

If she can no longer discern between fact and fiction, serious commentary and satire, she can’t possibly be trusted or taken seriously about anything, for who knows what her next source will be and whether or not it’s actually legitimate.

Maybe more importantly, how can anyone on television – Rhodes scholar or not! – be deserving of the public’s trust if she blames her own mistakes on others not at all involved in her program?

Sadly, this is par for the course on MSNBC as well as other liberal media outlets.

These are the same people that disgustingly blamed conservatives for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) last month. They’re used to pointing fingers at others without merit.

I will conclude today by wishing the lamestream media well in their Get Off Sarah Palin’s Back Month Ignore Sarah Palin Month and hoping MSNBC MSPDS will shut up long enough to fact-check their stories.

Just for the fun of it, take a look at how giddy Maddow is as she reports as fact this internet spoof. If it weren’t so pathetic, it might be hilarious. Okay, it is hilarious.

Yippee ki yay, liberals! It’s Sarah Palin Month on Telegraph Blogs!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

As we mentioned when we announced that February is Reagan-Palin month our British friends have joined in the festivities as well. James Delingpole deliciously tweaks the left with his awesome headline, and never lets up on them.

Here’s just a taste:

And that’s why I love Sarah Palin so much. Even, if she entered the White House in 2012 and proved the worst president in US history (quite a challenge, given the standards set by her immediate predecessor), even if she – “whoops” – accidentally pressed the red button that nuked North Korea leading to the global conflagration that destroyed most of the planet, even then I still think I would find it in my heart to love and forgive her. Why?

Because of all the many qualities Sarah Palin has, the best of all is this:

She drives liberals totally crazy. So crazy, in fact, that Washington Post libtard Dana Milbank is boycotting Sarah Palin for the month of February and urging other journalists to do the same. But here on Telegraph Blogs we’ve decided to do the opposite. Every day a blogger will mention her.

Welcome to Sarah Palin Month on Telegraph Blogs, everybody. It’s there to celebrate. It’s there to annoy.

Have some more of this tasty treat here.

Doh! Dana Milbank breaks own moratorium on day one

How about a nice cup of EPIC FAIL?

When he declared that February would be a “Palin-free month” on January 21, Washington Post op-ed columnist Dana Milbank wrote:

“…I hereby pledge that, beginning on Feb. 1, 2011, I will not mention Sarah Palin — in print, online or on television — for one month.”

How’s he doing so far? Not too good. Milbank couldn’t even get through the first day of his bogus boycott. This afternoon on the Post Partisan blog, Milbank wrote:

“I survived Day One of my February Sarah Palin moratorium…”

Sorry, Skippy, but you weren’t even going to mention her name, remember?

EPIC FAIL

PALIN FLASHBACK: How Palin Beat Alaska’s Establishment

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on February 2, 2011

Excellent article by Kimberly Strassel at the Wall Street Journal about the reforms  Sarah Palin brought to the State of Alaska as Governor. 

  • POTOMAC WATCH
  • SEPTEMBER 5, 2008
  • How Palin Beat Alaska’s Establishment

    By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL

    If you’ve read the press coverage of Sarah Palin, chances are you’ve heard plenty about her religious views and private family matters. If you want to know what drives Gov. Palin’s politics, and has intrigued America, read this.

    [Potomac Watch] 

    Every state has its share of crony capitalism, but Big Oil and the GOP political machine have taken that term to new heights in Alaska. The oil industry, which provides 85% of state revenues, has strived to own the government. Alaska’s politicians—in particular ruling Republicans—roll in oil campaign money, lavish oil revenue on pet projects, then retire to lucrative oil jobs where they lobby for sweetheart oil deals. You can love the free market and not love this.

    Alaskans have long resented this dysfunction, which has led to embarrassing corruption scandals. It has also led to a uniform belief that the political class, in hock to the oil class, fails to competently oversee Alaska’s vast oil and gas wealth, the majority of which belongs to the state—or rather, Alaskan citizens.

    And so it came as no surprise in 2004 when former Republican Gov. Frank Murkowski made clear he’d be working exclusively with three North Slope producers—ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips and BP—to build a $25 billion pipeline to move natural gas to the lower 48. The trio had informed their political vassals that they alone would build this project (they weren’t selling their gas to outsiders) and that they expected the state to reward them. Mr. Murkowski disappeared into smoky backrooms to work out the details. He refused to release information on the negotiations. When Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Irwin suggested terms of the contract were illegal, he was fired.

    What Mr. Murkowski did do publicly was instruct his statehouse to change the oil and gas tax structure (taxes being a primary way Alaskans realize their oil revenue). Later, citizens would discover this was groundwork for Mr. Murkowski’s pipeline contract—which would lock in that oil-requested tax package for up to 40 years, provide a $4 billion state investment, and relinquish most oversight.

    Enter Mrs. Palin. The former mayor of Wasilla had been appointed by Mr. Murkowski in 2003 to the state oil and gas regulatory agency. She’d had the temerity to blow the whistle on fellow GOP Commissioner Randy Ruedrich for refusing to disclose energy dealings. Mr. Murkowski and GOP Attorney General Gregg Renkes closed ranks around Mr. Ruedrich—who also chaired the state GOP. Mrs. Palin resigned. Having thus offended the entire old boy network, she challenged the governor for his seat.

    Mrs. Palin ran against the secret deal, and vowed to put the pipeline back out for competitive, transparent, bidding. She railed against cozy politics. Mr. Murkowski ran on his unpopular pipeline deal. The oil industry warned the state would never get its project without his leadership. Mrs. Palin walloped him in the primary and won office in late 2006. Around this time, news broke of a federal probe that would show oil executives had bribed lawmakers to support the Murkowski tax changes.

    Among Mrs. Palin’s first acts was to reinstate Mr. Irwin. By February 2007 she’d released her requirements for pipeline bidding. They were stricter, and included only a $500 million state incentive. By May a cowed state house—reeling from scandal—passed her legislation.

    The producers warned they would not bid, nor would anyone else. Five groups submitted proposals. A few months before the legislature awarded its license to TransCanada this July, Conoco and BP suddenly announced they’d be building their own pipeline with no state inducements whatsoever. They’d suddenly found the money.

    Mrs. Palin has meanwhile passed an ethics law. She’s tightened up oil oversight. She forced the legislature to rewrite the oil tax law. That new law raised taxes on the industry, for which Mrs. Palin is now taking some knocks, but the political background here is crucial.

    The GOP machine has crumbled. Attorney General Renkes resigned. Mr. Ruedrich was fined $12,000. Jim Clark—Mr. Murkowski’s lead pipeline negotiator—pleaded guilty to conspiring with an oil firm. At least three legislators have been convicted. Sen. Ted Stevens is under indictment for oil entanglements, while Rep. Don Young is under investigation.

    Throughout it all, Mrs. Palin has stood for reform, though not populism. She thanks oil companies and says executives who “seek maximum revenue” are “simply doing their job.” She says her own job is to be a “savvy” negotiator on behalf of Alaska’s citizens and to provide credible oversight. It is this combination that lets her aggressively promote new energy while retaining public trust.

    Today’s congressional Republicans could learn from this. The party has been plagued by earmarks, scandal and corruption. Most members have embraced the machine. That has diminished voters’ trust, and in the process diminished good, conservative ideas. It is no wonder 37 million people tuned in to Mrs. Palin’s convention speech. They are looking for something fresh.
