I found this image by following a link from one of the comments at Moonbattery on their 2nd post about the really thin AP story about “errors” in Sarah Palin’s new book Going Rogue. A book that’s been on the best seller lists for 50 days and it hasn’t even been released yet! Plus it already has a possibly-copyright-infringing counter book called Going Rouge out there already. She Who Must Be Destroyed At Any Cost!!!!11! Total pants shitting hysteria IMO.
Yeah, I saw the AP story when it came out. Palin writes a 432 page book, and some news agency sicks 11 fact checkers on the thing to attempt a debunking. ELEVEN. And they come up with a whole 6 “errors”, several of which are really, really, really thin ...
PALIN: Says she made frugality a point when traveling on state business as Alaska governor, asking “only” for reasonably priced rooms and not “often” going for the “high-end, robe-and-slippers” hotels.
THE FACTS: Although she usually opted for less-pricey hotels while governor, Palin and daughter Bristol stayed five days and four nights at the $707.29-per-night Essex House luxury hotel (robes and slippers come standard) .
PALIN: Boasts that she ran her campaign for governor on small donations and turned back large checks if her campaign perceived a conflict of interest.
THE FACTS: Of the roughly $1.3 million she raised for her primary and general election campaigns for governor, more than half came from people and political action committees giving at least $500, according to an AP analysis. The maximum that individual donors could give was $1,000; $2,000 for a PAC.
Of the rest, about $76,000 came from Republican Party committees.
... another idiot bit of “news” from the biased MSM. So typical that it’s boring to the point of “why even bother”. But Moonbattery did bother, and NRO, and Breitbart, and quite a number of other VRWC blogs, so I guess I missed the boat. I figured you guys all saw the stupid thing anyway and dismissed it as the crap it was.
No, my post here is that Moonbattery’s post generated a swarm of comments - more than 100; a regular troll fest, which quickly devolved into name calling, handle jacking, assertions of homosexuality, and the usual poop flinging monkey tantrum that results when anything about Sarah Palin is published. Amazingly, there were no comments about Nazis. And their 2nd post, appropriately titled More Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome” is quickly travelling down the same path. Which just proves the point, yet again. Sarah Palin makes the left’s heads explode. She sets their hair on fire. Mwahahahaa, the women is a goddess for that.
Hmmm ... I wrote a post about a post written about a post written about a news article written about a book that doesn’t yet exist in the marketplace. Is that meta-meta-meta-meta-blogging? If anyone blogs about my post, we’ll be up at the quantum level!
I am going to do my best to actually meet Mrs. Palin on Friday - I hope my copy of her book arrives before then (I will just have to buy another copy if not). I watched her on Oprah yesterday - can’t wait until the moonbats get a hold of that - her last line must have sent them to the ICU - ‘If not for God and Todd’. Wow.
Love the comments at Moonbattery - and she explained the Perky One’s ‘interview’ - one question asked 12 times?!? Guess Msss Perky did not get the answer (or amount of annoyance) she wanted. And as pointed out (on Oprah) - on the ‘what do you read’ question - Mrs. Palin took it as so damn insulting and condescending - Yepper she got that right too.
And I loved this - kind of sums it up in a brief and concise truth:
Palin’s treatment by the MSM always reminds me of that line in Princess Diana’s Eulogy given by her brother at her funeral when he said...” I dont think she ever understood why her genuinely good intentions were sneered at by the media. Why there appeared to be a permanent quest on their behalf to bring her down. It is baffling. My own and ownly explanation is that genuine goodness is threatening to those at the opposite end of the moral spectrum.” (Posted by Ed at Moonbattery)
And the Newsweek article - I stopped reading at the word teabaggers - how damn juvenile of them all. At least they continue to prove - which end of the moral spectrum they are on!
