Silencing the Right
Last week, Rush Limbaugh suggested Sandra Fluke was a slut. The left immediately began calling for boycotts of his advertisers. He apologized on Saturday. Fluke refused to accept his apology claiming he did it under duress and the pressure has kept up. It is organized and it has nothing to do with Limbaugh referring to Sandra Fluke as the same thing Ed Schultz referred to | Read More »
Sarah Palin Says She’d Vote for Newt
This will probably be the biggest news of the morning. Millions have wondered who Governor Palin would actually support. She’s making it crystal clear now. On Fox News, Sarah Palin says if she lived in South Carolina she’d vote for Newt. The next big question is whether Governor Perry decides to depart the race before or after Saturday. And if he departs, will he endorse | Read More »
Regarding Sarah Palin: “Tell ‘Em You’re With Tina Fey”
There is a strong notion out there that I do not like Sarah Palin. That actually is not true. There are many of her supporters who I have come to clash with a routine basis and I think the cult of personality that grew up around Sarah Palin became insane and unstable. But I have always liked Sarah Palin and her husband. At one point | Read More »
BREAKING NEWS: As I have been telling ALL OF YOU, Sarah Palin is not running
On Mark Levin’s show, Governor Sarah Palin announced she will not be running for President. You can hear the interview right here. Can we all be friends now?
A Few Things for Your Day
I have varied thoughts on varied matters this morning and have a busy day with some family stuff, so I’m just going to bullet point some issues here and the Morning Briefing can fill out most of the stuff. I merely quoted Sarah Palin on Friday. She told Jake Tapper the end of September was her drop dead date. I have never seen so much | Read More »
I told you people she was not running
It is now October even in Alaska and Sarah Palin has not announced by her own deadline. I guess she could still do it this month. But if she can’t even keep to her own deadline and hasn’t really had a job for two years and could have made up her mind, why keep stringing us along. This hasn’t just become a joke, but a | Read More »
It’s 3am ET and 11pm in Alaska. No Palin Announcement
One more hour. I’m assuming we won’t stretch this out to the International Date Line.
It’s 2am ET and 10 pm in Alaska. Hasn’t happened.
The national suicide prevention hotline is 1-800-273-8255 in case anyone wants to keep it handy. I’m hoping we don’t have a Hale Bopp moment.
It is 1am ET and 9pm in Alaska. Still no announcement
And if she announces now, she’ll totally have missed the morning papers on the east coast.
It is 12:00 AM on October 1. But It’s Still September 30th in Alaska
That’s right. I’m just going to keep this going. Because it is still September 30th in Alaska.
It is 11pm. Still No Palin Announcement
It’s not us folks. It’s her. From MSNBC’s First Read on September 5th: After making speeches in both Iowa and New Hampshire, two early voting states, the question remains as the holiday weekend draws to a close, will she or won’t she? Sarah Palin has indicated her “drop dead” date for a possible presidential announcement is the end of September. And going all the way | Read More »
It is 10pm. Given their relationship, Greta would be the natural place to announce
But we know by know that it is not happening today. All day long the Palin supporters have been going absolutely nuts over this. They point out to the various inconsistent statements from Sarah Palin herself that would take a Palinologist to decipher. She said September would be the drop dead date. Now October. But wait, she didn’t say she would announce by the end | Read More »
It is 8pm. Maybe She’ll Do It On O’Reilly
Still hasn’t happened. I am reminded of this: Consider that of all the candidates, Sarah Palin has the least excuse for her dithering. Unlike Perry, Bachmann, and Paul, Palin hasn’t had a job with official duties for the last two-plus years. All the other quasi-retired or term-limited candidates have long ago declared. Even Jon Huntsman was serving as ambassador to China as recently as April; | Read More »
It’s 7pm. Guess What Hasn’t Happened?
I’d be on radio to talk about it, except I’m on child care duty with a sick wife. But Palin has still not announced.
It’s 6pm. Still No Smoke on the Horizon for Palin 2012
I’m thinking we need to put out the suicide prevention hotline. There has been no announcement. Again, to quote U.S. for Palin: Sarah Palin however has said she will make an announcement before the deadline to declare by the end of September. It is now September 8th, 2011 and all the media and her supporters have to do is wait till September 30th, 2011. That’s | Read More »
It’s 5pm. Everyone Tune to Fox I Guess
Maybe Sarah Palin will go on Fox tonight and announce. Maybe. We’re going to keep tracking this story.
BREAKING NEWS: PALIN SUPPORTERS CLAIM SHE NEVER SAID IT OR MEANT IT OR SOMETHING
There is movement within the cult. They are mad as hell at us for pointing out Governor Palin set this as her own drop dead date. Palin supporters want us to know that despite Sarah Palin saying that she’d decide by the end of September and despite Sarah Palin fan sites at the beginning of the month saying she’d announce by the end of the | Read More »
It is 2pm ET. Nope. Not Yet.
Hasn’t happened. Stay tuned.
