Sarah Palin Serves Up a
Healthy Serving of Venom
in Her Christmas Book

Daily Beast, by Michelle Cottle

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/16/2013 6:31:27 AM

She didn’t write about ‘Protecting the Heart of Christmas’ at all—instead, the eternally offended governor may have penned the perfect manual for another holiday altogether: Festivus. Initially I planned to ignore this week’s release of Good Tidings and Great Joy, Sarah Palin’s book waging war on the war on Christmas. Few political hucksters milking the culture war for an easy buck peddle antics more shopworn than the annual fear-mongering that secularist Scrooges are coming for our creches. But then I couldn’t stop wondering: What happens when the Queen of Grievance takes up arms on behalf of the Prince of Peace’s

"Mitt Romney´s hair"? Well, that´s certainly a Christmasy subject. I offer a Palin piece to help offset the deluge of anti-Romney postings. L-Dotters are not united in our political likes or dislikes, obviously. Just call me a curmudgeon.

Michelle, your bias is so evident..I´m bit embarrassed for you. Take a hint, journalism IS NOT your strong suit. However, your local MacDonalds needs a french fry cook......

Actually, Ms. Beast, they are coming for our crèches. Ever see how many things Christian "offend" one person and the entire program or exhibit is scrubbed? I am offended by the push to demonize and belittle white men at every opportunity. I am offended by trash TV. I am offended by media that celebrates perversity, not diversity. I am offended by someone telling me its raining while they pizz on my leg.

#5, Sarah Palin did apologize for her remarks about the Pope. I can understand why she made the remarks. I don´t know if the media distorted an interview he did but the story raised my eyebrows. I had to read further to figure out what he was saying but really not sure. The claims are made that the media distorted his responses but really unclear for me.

I think your claim that she is phony is in question, too. I realize that there are a lot of people who don´t care for her and that is their choice.

At the same time, I have choices too. I support the people who run against the Democrats and Sarah Palin happens to be one of them.

Attack on the Pope?

You probably are unaware that Sarah was born and baptised as a Catholic by her Catholic parents. They have subsequently added "other" traditions to that rich and ancient body of beliefs as well.

BTW, the Pope and I have many of the same beliefs. Putin and I and the Pope actually could have a serious meeting of the minds on almost every moral issue on the planet.

At the same time I don´t think Putin and I would agree with ANYBODY from Argentina when it comes to economics! That´s where the Pope´s from these days ~ Argentina. They do some wierd things down there. Last thing I saw about Francis before he moved to Rome was he was trying to take the concubines away from a number of church officials who were otherwise old school Spanish grandees.

That´s where I draw the line with this Pope. Leave the guys alone ~ open up marriage to them. They´ll do just as good a job anyway and they won´t be so anxiety ridden about getting caught!

How do you get to call one of the most viciously attacked politicians of our time "eternally offended?" More like "eternally maligned." That she stands strong and keeps on doing whatever it is that interests her, be it writing a book about Christmas or making an honest comment about a Pope, is a testament to her being an overcomer, a person above it all who will not be intimidated or silenced.

"What you see happening is not real. Go back to sleep Johnny. Its just a nightmare."
If Sarah was a liberal the progressives would applaud her fairness and insight.

#5, perhaps you should actually watch the Palin/Tapper exchange. She did NOT attack the Pope. She said based on the media reports she read, she was concerned about his stances. She also emphasized that she didn´t take the media reports to be an honest account of what the pope said and that she hadn´t had the time to listen to what he actually said.

The bottom line is that you and many of the PDSers took her comments out of context to attack her. Shame on you.

I wonder what revenge will be invoked for the the more recent posting of Star Parker´s drubbing of the the main GOP establishment darling, Chris Christie?

#18, she didn´t attack the Pope. She also prefaced her comments to Tapper with the fact that she was relying on what the media reported. She said that if the reports were accurate, she had some concerns, but would reserve her final judgement until she actually heard the Pope´s words.

Since you always jump at the chance to blast Palin, why didn´t you take the time to watch the Tapper interview?

Here´s the interview. Watch and then come back and admit that your comments are unfounded. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AMSrHFhi6I

And here´s what she said about her comments on the Pope:

"Just to clarify my comment to Jake Tapper about Pope Francis, it was not my intention to be critical of Pope Francis. I was reminding viewers that we need to do our own homework on news subjects, and I hadn’t done mine yet on the Pope’s recent comments as reported by the media. Knowing full well how often the media mischaracterizes a person’s comments (especially a religious leader’s), I don’t trust them to get it right when it comes to reporting on the Vatican. I do, however, trust my many Catholic friends and family, including some excellent Catholic writers, who have since assured me that Pope Francis is as sincere and faithful a shepherd of his church as his two predecessors whom I admired. I apologize for not being clearer in my response, thus opening the door to critical media that does what it does best in ginning up controversy."

The Left will always loudly announce who they fear. It seems as if the fear Sarah Palin more than they fear Rush. He has 7 to 8 million (or more) listeners worldwide. So how many fans does Sarah have? More than 8 million? No wonder their fear of her never diminishes.

Op never fails to meet expectations. Once a Palin detractor, always a Palin detractor. And the elitists republicans call us conservatives to task for circular firing squads. If the elitists R´s ever got after Obama and the dems the way they slice and dice us, I might be a tad more inclined to support them. Not holding my breath.

Thank you, #25 for doing your homework and bringing us Sarah´s words.

This book review is meant to quash Sarah´s book sales. Those on the right may want to read it. Those on the left will want to add it to their fireplaces. Ms. Cottle´s target are the wishy- swishy moderates/independents who are curious about Sarah and Christmas.

This woman is vicious and vile like most liberal women. As someone else posted, Sarah is married, beautiful, famous, and successful. Had you ever heard of Michelle Cottle´before this rant was published?

So, throw this baby out with the bath water and have a lovely Christmas. Buy Sarah´s book and shove a proverbial sock in this woman´s mouth.

One wonders about those proclaiming to be Republicans (about 8-10 who can be counted on to find any negative article on Palin and now Cruz) get their talking points from the likes of McCain, McDonnell and Boehner. It is obvious they have difficulty in accepting Gov. Palin and Sen. Cruz as leaders----which they are since they are not part of the ´status quo´ or the ´go along to get along´ crowd. One wonders if they even secretly are showering their praises on the ´little boy king´ in the WH.

This article and the poster of it are an example of why those of us who identify as "Tea Party" are tired of being called the disruptive difficult ones. The worst we do is call folks like McCain and Romney RINOs, while the establishment GOP appears to condone this kind of disgustingly vicious nasty behavior towards a fellow Republican. Why do I say they condone it? Because I never hear them come to Sarah Palin´s or Ted Cruz´s defense. Aren´t they Republicans too? Whatever happened to party unity? I guess we have our own version of PUMAs and it´s not the Tea Party.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear.

As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear.

About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
