Sarah Palin was right: Lamestream
media needs a long look in the mirror

Alaska Dispatch [Anchorage, AK], by Craig Medred

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/11/2013 7:34:25 AM

No small part of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s considerable fame is attributable to her taking on the lamestream media, because the lamestream media in large part sucks, and we all know it. Period. End of story. You can stop reading now, and bounce on along to the next lame story. Many of you will, your self-perceived, common-sense conclusion having been confirmed in once sentence above. Sadly, that conclusion also happens to be the right conclusion in this case. And you´re not alone in thinking the media lame. Everyone frets over that fact these days, most especially

Well, uninteresting as it was, I read it to the end. If you read it my remark will make sense to you.

I can tell from the article that
Governor Perry is still considered a threat. He had to be held up for scorn once again in this article.

A stupid reporter writes a stupid article about other stupid reporters writing stupid articles about stupid Sarah Palin and whole parade of stupid celebrities who have occupied and befouled the airwaves over the years does not make a good read, even though it does make a small, but equally stupid point. I was going to rush to the defense of Sarah Palin, but decided that she doesn´t need it. Sarah has changed the face of American politics vastly for the better, and this stupid fool is still stuck in Anchorage trying to gain relevance by writing stupid articles on a woman who has transcended that remote frontier state.

Caution! You’re about to enter the Sarah Palin Hit Piece Zone! When the first two words of the guaranteed-a-grabber headline are Sarah Palin, it’s a pretty good bet the article or column or whatever that’s underneath will be a hit piece. Even if they’re not the first two words. Even if they’re down the headline a bit, it’s still a pretty good bet. Wherever her name appears in the headline, you can be certain it’s the “journalist’s” way of pleading Notice Me! Notice Me! Pleeeeeze Notice Me! By so doing, snarky hack writer Craig Medred desperately seeks attention. Not to worry, Craig. Your hush-hush case of Venus Envy is safe with me.

This liberal writer used Sarah Palin to write about in this article, because that her name always draws readers. I read it all the way to the end to see if he ever used a Democrat as one of his examples, but shock, shock, he didn´t give even one. Nothing about 57 states or asking someone in a wheelchair to stand up, to name a couple. I say, Go, Sarah! We´re behind you all the way.

Only way he could get clicks on his article was to mention Sarah Palin.

Those journ-O-LIARS are still at fevered pitch with Palin. How many other politicians can you name who were V.P. picks of a presidential campaign effort that are still in the news SIX (6) years after their selection. She was over target during her career and is still over targets now.

FTA: And in fairness to Palin, it doesn´t take great intellect to govern well. Plenty of politicians have succeeded without it, and Palin did a decent job in her short run as governor of the 49th state.

But let´s get real for a minute here. Nobody is interested in Palin because of how well she performed as governor, or because of her big ideas -- I dare you to find one -- or because of her political savvy -- she´s had precious little political success, although she has shown the good sense to to avoid running for anything since the failed bid for vice president.

The latter would at least seem to illustrate she´s smarter than some of her harshest critics believe. "

So suddenly the Palin hating Rove luvin Bush palace guard wants more gravitas, wants a governor who has accomplished something, who speaks with a noun and a verb in the right tense. They promote severe conservatives famous for raising money and being born with some political connection, yet Palin and her followers are stupid rubes who only want celebrity. THAT is why the establishment will continue to insist on sitting in the front seat and applauding each other for the lack of strong republican opposition to the horrors of the current administration.

Palin ain´t the problem, you are.

Of course she is right about you and your pathetic profession. You all made fun of her supposed ´ignorance´ when in reality most of you failed at basketweaving so in order to graduate at something, you had to choose journalism.

As to looking in the mirror? Parasitic vampires have no reflection.

When she was in college her ambition was to be a sports broadcaster. She has gone on to much bigger and better things since. Unlike a certain Anchorage newspaper scribbler.

Will somebody please push the reset button on the winter of 2014? Yet another big storm is barreling down on the Mid-Atlantic states, bringing snow, sleet and disruption to winter-weary Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, not to mention frigid temperatures to the Midwest and Great Plains. The federal government has already decided to close offices Monday in Washington, which expects rain, ice and 8-12 inches of snow. Congress postponed Monday business until Tuesday. Public school systems from Dallas to Philadelphia canceled Monday classes. Washington city offices and Delaware state government offices will be closed Monday.

To hear Republicans who follow these sorts of things closely, there are actually two primaries for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. The first is the fight to be the establishment conservative pick, a battle that could include Govs. Chris Christie (N.J), Bobby Jindal (La.), John Kasich (Ohio) and Scott Walker (Wisc.) as well as Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and, possibly, former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wisc.). The other is to be the movement conservative choice, a tussle right now between Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The theory is that a victor will emerge from

Yesterday, President Vladimir Putin authorized the use of Russian troops in Ukraine in defiance of American and international warnings against Russia intervention in Ukraine. By the end of the day, unmarked Russian forces and pro-Russian Ukrainians took control of large parts of Crimea, igniting an international crisis. Here are today´s major developments so far: This morning, Ukraine´s acting government mobilized the military to meet what Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk called a "declaration of war" by Russia. "Hundreds of gunmen" surrounded a Ukrainian military base in Crimea, creating a standoff between the two country´s troops. Two bases and a number of installations were

KABUL — Hamid Karzai was in the midst of negotiating a security agreement with the United States when he met a 4-year-old girl who had lost half her face in an American airstrike. Five months later, the Afghan president’s eyes welled with tears as he described visiting the disfigured little girl at a hospital. He took long pauses between words. Sitting behind his desk Saturday night, the man who has projected a defiant image toward the West suddenly looked frail. “That day, I wished she were dead, so she could be buried with her parents and brothers and sisters” —

The Obama administration’s new proposed rule for Medicare Part D would eliminate half of all Medicare Part D plans and raise prescription drug premiums for millions of seniors by up to 20 percent, according to a U.S. House subcommittee chairman. “Today, the average senior has 35 different [Medicare Part D] plans to choose from this year. This rule would reduce that choice to two plans. 50% of the plans offered today will be gone, and the health care that seniors like may go with it,” House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee chairman Rep.

Republican lawmakers have failed to pin down senior military officials on how they characterized the Benghazi attack to the White House and President Obama on Sept. 11, 2012, the day terrorists stormed a U.S. diplomatic mission and bombed a CIA annex in the eastern Libyan city. The issue gained importance in January when Republican members of the House Committee on Armed Services released former top-secret transcripts of senior officials testifying on the military’s response to Benghazi. For the first time, it was disclosed that retired ArmyGen. Carter Ham, then head of U.S. Africa Command, testified that he had told Defense Secretary Leon

Quotable quote, in response to the question whether the alleged Russian “reset” proclaimed by the Obama administration at its rosy dawn is still alive: “I don’t know what you mean by reset…I don’t think this is the moment to be claiming one thing or the other…not a moment for zero sum…” ‘Scuse

The tea party movement celebrated its fifth anniversary this past week, but there’s been little to celebrate lately about the performance of some of the conservatives running under the tea party banner who have mounted primary challenges to half a dozen Senate Republicans. In Texas, a poll by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune showed Sen. John Cornyn running away from Rep. Steve Stockman, 62 percent to 16 percent. Their primary will be Tuesday. At this point, the challenge to the incumbent looks like a big fizzle — to no one’s surprise. In Kentucky, businessman Matt Bevin, the tea

Legal ´standing´: Obama´s
executive branch escape hatch

Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/2/2014 5:43:06 AM     Post Reply
President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have

The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake has penned an interesting post which seeks to answer the question: Why is Arizona so often the flash point in these hot-button culture war questions? Blake proposes some interesting hypotheses, including public financing of campaigns and term limits. These things sound good, but there are unintended consequences. Regarding the public financing of campaigns, for example, Blake notes that “Arizona political watchers say this system has lowered the bar when it comes to who is viable and allowed ultra-conservative candidates to get the money they need to win primaries.” The problem isn’t ultra-conservative candidates, it is unserious candidates.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

Ukraine´s security council ordered the general staff to immediately put all armed forces on highest alert, the council´s secretary Andriy Parubiy announced. The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.
