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.

Jennifer Rubin reverts to type

Posted by joshpainter on December 1, 2010

As a writer for Commentary Magazine and its Contentions blog, Jennifer Rubin consistently defended Sarah Palin against the left’s attacks. When the news broke that she had been hired by the left wing Washington Post to write about the right, many conservative bloggers and pundits hailed the hiring as a sea change. Finally, they trumpeted, WaPo had obtained the services of a real conservative to write about real Republicanism and conservatism. And hey, after the Weigel fiasco, any conservative would be an improvement.

We didn’t hail that particular bandwagon and ask for a ride, preferring instead to reserve judgment until after we had a chance to read Rubin’s Post postings for ourselves. Our skepticism was rooted in recent memory. The 2008 Republican primary race was not so long ago, and we recall that she was a big backer then of Rudy Giuliani, the most socially liberal of all the GOP candidates. We also recall that Rubin was especially critical of Fred Thompson, the only across-the-board Reagan conservative in the Republican presidential primaries.

After reading what she has written in her first five columns for WaPo, we see that Jennifer Rubin has downgraded to version One-Point-Oh. She’s conservative on three legs of the four-legged conservative stool, but hold the social conservatism from her order, please. It didn’t take Rubin long to start running down Sarah Palin now that the commentator is of the Post. In just her fifth WaPo column, she starts to pick on Palin.

According to Rubin, or at least the WaPo version of Rubin, the notion that Sarah Palin is the front runner for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination is just a liberal conspiracy because, you see, they want her to be the nominee, as she simply has no chance whatsoever of winning the general election, even against such a failed president as Barack Obama. Rubin hits all of the talking points from the elites of the left and the right – Sarah Palin has limited appeal among independents; golly, she sure did back some questionable candidates for the Senate, especially that awful Christine O’Donnell; her political judgment during a general election might be just too risky; most elected Republicans don’t think Palin is a front runner, etc.

That last one is a real gem. Has Rubin asked “most” elected GOP officials or conducted a survey? We don’t think so. Oh well, “when in Rome…” or perhaps better said, “while at the Post…” Are we accusing Jennifer Rubin of changing her own narrative to try to get the “progressives” who account for most of its readership to read her column? Not substantially, no. Only just a little. Actually, for Jennifer Rubin its more a case of her reverting to type rather than making a compromise. She’s a Rudy Guiliani conservative again. Apparently that’s not too conservative for either the people who buy and read the Washington Post or those who run it. And since being negative on Sarah Palin is part of the Post’s program, it’s good for Rubin that she has no problem with that. It didn’t seem to bother her to go negative on Fred Thompson three years ago, so this Palin-marginalizing should be a piece of cake.

Andrew Malcolm: Would Jeb Bush vote for Palin vs Obama? ‘You betcha!’

Posted by joshpainter on October 23, 2010

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was John King’s guest on CNN today. Bush said that today’s campaign debates could benefit from a little more substance, and he believes the GOP need to adopt a positive agenda in 2012 that is “big and bold and aspiritional.” Then, as our friend Andrew Malcolm observes:

King asked Bush a question off of Facebook: “Would he endorse Palin for president if he does not run himself.”

Bush’s quick reply: “Well, A, I’m not running. And if Sarah Palin is the nominee and she’s running against Barack Obama, you betcha.”

So, for at least for one party establishment figure, Sarah Palin could be a unifying factor against you-know-who.

We rarely feel compelled to give props to establishment Republicans, but we have to say good for Gov. Bush.
