Ten Must-Have Apps for Sarah Palin Followers

Posted by ehvogel on March 6, 2011

I keep reading about this must-have app and that must-have app, so I decided to create a list for some creative entrepreneur that understands apps (my preference being Android). Here are my suggestions for 10 must-have apps for Sarah Palin followers:

1. Real time notices of Sarah Palin Facebook or Twitter postings. Sarah Palin followers just have to be the first to know about a new post.

2. Upcoming Sarah Palin media appearances. Whether it be Fox News or a simple radio appearance, real-time updates of coming appearances would be most helpful.

3. A register of new online polls regarding Sarah Palin. We like to vote for positive things regarding Sarah and need to know where to go to support her in any online poll.

4. Red Alerts for countering media bias regarding Sarah Palin and her family. We like to voice our opinions regarding Sarah to help counter any negative “hit piece” that is published about Sarah or her family. Links to comment pages would be a welcome thing.

5. Video archives of Sarah Palin appearances. We would like a depository of Sarah Palin videos that we could link to on our smart-phones to help counter real-time Sarah critics that we come across in our daily lives.

6. Sarah Palin’s favorite wild-game recipes. After all, you can only make Moose stew once in a while.

7. Sarah Palin quotes. She has coined or re-invented such fabulous terms as “death panels”, “going rogue”, “mama grizzlies”, “blood libel”, “a servant’s heart”, “lamestream media”, “refudiate” and others. We want to use these terms and would like instant access to new and existing ones, for whatever purpose. It would also be helpful to have links to the source where where she first used them.

8. Shoes. Okay, I throw this one out for all those wonderful ladies that notice another woman’s shoes. I suspect they might like to know what latest fashion Sarah is wearing on her feet, whether they be pumps or sloggers.

9. Sarah Palin media smack-downs. Okay, I know this could be included in #4 above, but it deserves its own app because we like Sarah’s feistiness and want to be the first to applaud it.

10. Smiles. Sarah Palin has one of the most magnificent smiles that has ever existed in a politician. We want to see every single one that comes across whatever media source runs it for a collective glimpse into her heart.

I could probably go on, but you get the idea. App-makers?

Robert Lane Greene on Governor Palin’s Mastery of Language

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 5, 2011

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

The following article by Robert Lane Greene appeared yesterday at CNN.com:

Friday is National Grammar Day, a commemoration of sorts begun in 2008 by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar.

[…]

Palin is as masterly with language as Bush was not. She uses her unique way of speaking to devastating political effect. She has every confidence in her ability to reach her audience. Bush was reduced to half-apologizing for his stumbles. Palin owns them.

After “refudiate,” she sent a follow-up tweet. “English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!” With trademark confidence, she turned the tables on the pointy-heads who mock her.

[…]

I was at Palin’s coming-out speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention. She may not have written her line about the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom (“lipstick”), but she delivered it perfectly. Watch it again. The crowd roared. She drew increased confidence and swagger as she went on. At the beginning she was an unknown. By the end, she was the Sarah Palin you know today. She now overshadows, in her ability to grab attention, the entire 2012 Republican field.

So on National Grammar Day, remember: Language is about communicating effectively, not just memorizing some highfalutin’ rules. Bo Diddley knows that. So does Palin. Democrats (and Republicans) “misunderestimate” her at their peril.

British MEP Daniel Hannan: Say, I Like The Cut Of Sarah Palin’s Shakespearean Jib

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 27, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Remember when the left got all wee-wee’ed up because Sarah Palin coined the new word “refudiate“? Even better: Remember when they went deliciously insane because she talked about English being a “living language” and mentioned the Bard of Avon, William Shakespear?

Yeah, progressives are generally useless, but their value as comic relief almost makes them almost tolerable. Almost.

In a piece we wrote, Come To Think Of It … Sarah Palin IS Kind of Shakespearean, we talked about David Hirschman over at Big Think, and his musings on whether Sarah’s “refudiate” would have the staying power of Shakespear’s many words like “champion.”

Now it seems that Daniel Hannan, the British Conservative superstar, Member of the European Parliament, and self proclaimed Shakespearean obsessive, offers his considerable opinion in today’s UK Telegraph:



Sarah Palin, never misunderestimate Shakespeare

I am thoroughly taken with Sarah Palin’s neologism. People often incorrectly use the word “refute” to mean something like “deny” or “reject“, only stronger. We could do with a new word to fill this gap and, since both “refute” and “repudiate” are already occupied with their actual meanings, neither can be pressed into service. “Refudiate” occupies the space perfectly, and deserves to become part of every politician’s vocabulary.

The handsome Alaskan politician is quite right to say that Shakespeare came up with countless new-fangled words – including “countless” and “new-fangled“. Among his coinages, as far as we can tell, are accommodation, assassinate, denote, dislocate, equivocal, eventful, hobnob, inauspicious, lacklustre, laughable, perplex, raw-boned, submerge, time-honoured, unmitigated and zany.

But minting words was just one, and not the greatest, of Shakespeare’s gifts. I know many readers find my obsession with our national poet trying. So, instead of hymning his genius yet again, let me offer you this famous passage from one of Bernard Levin’s columns.

Funny, while the progressives continually be-clown themselves attacking Sarah Palin, her stature as a true renaissance woman only rises.
