Palin’s other base: Special Needs Families.
No word if news of that sent Keith Olbermann into a full epileptic seizure, but the day’s still young: Via LA Time’s Top of the Ticket, which was… reasonable in its coverage of the event, if a little disappointed that the Governor more or less – and wisely – let the immigration stuff slide in favor of talking about lower taxes. There’s not much else | Read More »
Palin rips into LA Times over “THE TAPE.”
But the LA Times didn’t, so now it’s a campaign issue. Thanks, LA Times! Moe Lane PS: I’d suggest that Senators Obama and Biden try to make this story go away in their next press conference, except that they don’t actually do those anymore. Unlike, say, Governor Palin.
“Sarah Palin’s a Brainiac”
Probably not literally, but you never know. The heretic in question is Elaine Lafferty, who is a former Hillary Clinton supporter, former editor-in-chief of Ms. Magazine, pretty decent journalism bio – and current adviser to the McCain/Palin campaign, which will of course permit her critics to redefine her as a traitor to her gender. Yes, I’m aware of how weird that observation looks. It’s a | Read More »
Red Flag to Bull Watch: Feminist defends Palin.
Choice of word deliberate: an article like this is unlikely to not get pushback. The title alone will provoke a certain sort: Palin deserves our respect I cannot predict who will win the presidential campaign, but I already know who will lose big: all women. I realized this when I saw a 20-something male student who attends a class in the community college where I | Read More »
The Soon to be Legendary Jeri Thompson of Team Sarah H&C Video.
Via Gateway Pundit: Personally, I think that Alan Colmes should be grateful. I’m given to understand that normally he’d have to pay somewhere around six, seven hundred bucks to get spanked that comprehensively. Moe Lane PS: Go, Team Sarah.
The answer, of course, is that he’d crack under the strain.
Via Instapundit, Michael Graham imagines a pretty funny scenario: I have a dream for Sen. Barack Obama. I have a dream that one day, for just 24 hours, he could be Sarah Palin. OK, maybe that’s less of a dream and more a plot point from a bad Lindsay Lohan movie (redundancy alert!). But imagine the Democratic nominee’s day as Barack Palin Obama: He wake | Read More »
And *this* is why we all did our happy dance when McCain picked Palin.
Because this is what we wanted, and this is what we’re going to be getting from here on in. I guess that we know now why Biden took the day off – but not what the method is that the Obama campaign is using to keep this from happening again. I’m personally guessing electroshock, but that’s because I’m married to a mad scientist (well, mad | Read More »
Alec Baldwin explains the realities of life to the grubby little HuffPovians.
Mr. Baldwin takes the time to instruct the hoi polloi in the way the world operates: …I wonder, what did some of you people actually think would happen with Palin on SNL? Saturday Night Live is a comedy show. It’s not Meet the Press. It doesn’t “ask the tough questions” or “set the agenda.” It attempts, with varying degrees of success, to make people laugh. | Read More »
CBS starts to notice: Hey, we’re getting a lot of access to Palin these days.
(H/T: Hot Air) I guess that Dean Reynolds talked to Scott Conroy about the entire how-good-you-have-it-buddy thing wrt covering the McCain campaign and its superior smell, because Conroy’s doing some reporting: (COLORADO SPRINGS) It was less than two weeks ago when Sarah Palin astonished her traveling press corps by lifting the curtain (literally) and journeying to the back of her campaign plane to answer reporters’ | Read More »
Terry Tate assaults Sarah Palin on YouTube
There are two types of people who will watch this (simulated) video. (Via Hot Air) There are the people who will blink as they realize that, yes, they just watched the reproduction of a Vice Presidential candidate being violently blindsided, tackled, and screamed at incoherently by a man in a football uniform. And then there are the people who will find this funny. They’ll probably | Read More »
McCain’s Virginia Beach Speech.
Below the fold is the advance copy of the speech that John McCain made today at Virginia Beach. It may disappoint those who wanted more red meat about Obama’s working relationship with an unrepentant domestic terrorist, or his ongoing links with organizations apparently devoted to voter registration fraud; it might distress those who wanted (and who thought that they were getting) a radical change in | Read More »
Palin on the Attack: Life Issues
Go here for the transcript, and here for Allahpundit’s commentary on the video: AP’s worried (not very surprising: he’s a good and habitually pessimistic blogger) that this is more evidence that McCain & Palin are at odds with each other over how hard to hit the Democrats on this and other issues. I do not agree. Anyway, while not a Evangelical myself, I fully understand | Read More »
Um. No, Elizabeth Snead. You *can’t* shoot your foot off that way.
In the process of reporting on a stock photo grabbed by Newsweek for its cover of Governor Palin, the LA Times snarks: Hey, is that even the right way to hold a rifle? Can’t you shoot your foot off like that? Take a look: Now, if you don’t understand why people are laughing, then I suggest that you show the photo to a conservative that | Read More »
Hey, they indicted that Democrat who hacked Palin’s email!
Caleb Howe has the details about David Kernell. Please remember: there is no indication at this time that Tennessee Democrat Mike Kernell (the father of David Kernell) was involved in this felonious assault on Sarah Palin. Likewise, at this moment there is no indication that David Kernell enlisted or accepted the help of any other Democrat or Democratic organization in his alleged crime. Right now | Read More »
One last one for the night.
Via Hot Air, here’s the next helping: As Allahpundit notes: it’s going to be fun tomorrow night. I figure we’ll see Barack Obama splutter for a full minute at least once, poor fellow. Moe Lane
Dr. Helen is gobsmacked by a PDS sufferer.
Now, I’m not a trained psychologist or anything – unlike Dr. Helen – but I was under the impression that when you write a letter mentioning how you’re filled with anger and hatred, and you don’t like it: My reaction to her, and the way the Republican Party threw her in our faces, and the pandering and hypocrisy that was behind their decision to do | Read More »
The AP desperately tries to play the race card on Palin.
First off, let’s just take a look at what she actually said. From the AP article itself: “Our opponent … is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country,” Palin told a group of donors in Englewood, Colo. A deliberate attempt to smear Obama, McCain’s ticket-mate echoed the line | Read More »
Ace of Ace of Spades HQ is covering the Carson rally…
…and live-blogging it. It’s apparently packed (I think capacity is 13K) and he says that he was told that Palin was going to make news; take that as you like, but she’s certainly out there swinging already today. I dunno if this is on C-Span or anything. No cable.
