Gotta Defend Sarah Palin on This One

Cidu Bill on Jan 28th 2011

She’s drawing heat for this comment:

The President’s State of the Union address boiled down to this message: “The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.” He dubbed it a “Winning The Future” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content.

No, this was Obama’s screw-up all the way: you do not coin a phrase without thinking about the acronym first.

Crosshairs

Cidu Bill on Jan 10th 2011

You can make an argument that Sarah Palin’s ongoing gun-related hyperbole played a role in this weekend’s assassination attempt. You can make an argument that it did not.

But I defy anybody to argue that this comment by one of Palin’s aides isn’t a monumental insult to everybody’s intelligence.

Sarah Palin: ”Is It any Wonder Why We Call Them Lame?”

Cidu Bill on Jun 2nd 2010

Sarah Palin’s latest article criticizing the media wasn’t all that interesting. What is interesting is her use of the word “lame” given her indignation over people and things being casually referred to as “retarded.”

That’s just so gay.

Okay, let’s give credit where it’s due…

Cidu Bill on May 25th 2010

Ethically ambiguous journalist Joe McGinniss has rented the house next to Sarah Palin’s to help him write his unauthorized biography of the former VP-candidate former governor (see article). Assuming she thought of this herself, you have to give Palin points for posting a photo of the rented house online with the caption “Hi, Neighbor! May I Call You ‘Joe’?”

The Great Whitebread Hope

Cidu Bill on May 11th 2010

As soon as Supreme Court Justice Stevens announced his retirement and it became apparent that his likely replacements were all either Jewish or Catholic, Ann Coulter wrote an article sounding the alarm there would no longer be any Protestants on the Supreme Court. At the time, I thought this was an odd thing to even notice, and I figured it was just Ann Coulter being Ann Coulter. After all, she’s been having a tough time of it lately — suddenly ignored by the media in favor of Sarah Palin, who’s prettier and not half as intelligent — so she has to make increasingly outrageous comments in order to get any attention.

But now the dearth of SCOTUS Protestantism is being offered up as news by organizations such as the Associated Press, so I have to wonder: Is this something American Protestants are really upset about, or is this a media-manufactured issue like “the War on Christmas”?

And speaking of irony…

Cidu Bill on Mar 20th 2010

We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, Isn’t that ironic? -Sarah Palin

Okay, as far as I can tell, she is using the word “ironic” correctly — so she gets points for that even as she loses points for bad sentence structure — but given her strong opposition to any federally run health care (”Obama’s socialized medicine and death panels”), what’s her actual point here?

Sexist or Not?

Cidu Bill on Nov 18th 2009

palin.jpgSarah Palin complained that this week’s Newsweek cover is sexist, and… well, I think I sort of agree, though we might be dealing with semantics here: Certainly Newsweek chose this particular photo with the inten of trivializing Palin (the photo is real, but was taken earlier this year as part of a spread for Runner’s World magazine). And they probably wouldn’t have used this sort of photo to trivialize a male politician (can you imagine a cover story about Obama’s domestic policy agenda being illustrated with this?

barackbeach2.jpg

So if using a “sexy” cover photo of a female politician is a context where you wouldn’t use one of a male politician is sexist, then I find myself in the odd position of siding with Palin.


Of course what I found most interesting about all this was Palin’s comment on the cover, ending with “If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin” — clear proof, I guess, that she writes her own material. I mean, I sort of maybe know what she’s kind of getting at here, but…

And actually what makes that quote more interesting is the fact that it was written (apparently) on the same day that she vigorously defended racial profiling on the Sean Hannity show.

Haute Coulter

Cidu Bill on May 7th 2009

“The only thing I have against her is that she threatens to surpass me in attracting the left’s hatred.” -Ann Coulter, in a Time magazine aricle about Sarah Palin, in which she insists that Palin only lost in November because of “the deficits of her running mate.”

Couter often talks about how liberals hate her, fear her, or both. Do any liberals actually hate her or fear her? Does anybody, either liberal or conservative, view her as a serious spokesperson for the conservative right? I always thought of her as an entertainer, sort of Archie Bunker with better verbal skills.

Pregnant Pause

Cidu Bill on Nov 13th 2008

pregnant.gif
How old is this girl supposed to be? Even if she’s not a seventh grader herself, if she’s in the same school as a seventh grader, she has to be at least in the fifth grade (depending on how the school district is set up; more likely sixth grade). For a ten-or-eleven-year-old to be this ignorant would require the school to have an abstinence-only teaching policy so severe that even Sarah Palin would disapprove and a mother who’s too repressed to have ever discussed sex with her daughter — and if there’s one thing Eve isn’t, it’s repressed.

Newt Gingrich: Saturday Night Live Guilty of Slander

Cidu Bill on Oct 24th 2008

Newt Gingrich told Fox News Wednesday (see clip) that Saturday Night Live’s portrayals of Sarah Palin “were slander and were worthy of a lawsuit.”

This is kind of funny until your remember that Gingrich used to be Speak of the House, and therefore one of the most powerful members of the governmental body that makes our laws. Then it becomes kind of scary.

Things Sarah Palin Never Said

Cidu Bill on Sep 10th 2008

Gotta love this. This guy made up a handful of Sarah Palin quotes. Says they’re made up. Lists them under the headline “Fake Governor Sarah Palin Quotes“… yet they’ve been forwarded as genuine quotes to e-mail boxes across the country, attributed to such sources as MSNBC.

It’s not often that we can pinpoint exactly where these things originate.
