Raise your hand if your sick of how the Palin family always makes the news...
Edited on Wed Apr-08-09 03:09 PM by WilliamPitt
...*hand not raised*...

Are you kidding me?

I want Palin in the news every day. Her, her kids, this Levi person, whatever, I don't care as long as it's "Palin-y" and hilarious...and while they're at it, I also want the leftover dregs of the erstwhile McCain campaign to pipe up now and again with their own crudball comments about Palin and that wacky brood of hers. Every day.

Do a Google News search for "Palin," just the one word. Look at some of the headlines that come up:

Levi Johnston calls Sarah Palin 'snobby,' says his family is not 'white trash' on CBS' 'Early Show'

Texas man creates rogue Palin legal defense fund

VIDEO: Eminem Takes Shots at Palin, Simpson, Lohan and More!

Palin pushes for better missile defense (Remember, she can see Russia from her porch; North Korea is on the horizon)


The awesomeness simply cannot be denied.

She's the front-runner for the GOP nomination, remember.

More, please.

:rofl:

25. No way! I say BRING IT! Sarah Palin as the GOP nominee would be the best thing
to happen to the Democrats. Maybe they could get that idiot Bobby Jindal for VP and he can babble about volcanos on the campaign trail in his best Kenneth from 30 Rock voice. SNL would have a field day!

4. Hands in pockets
I want to see Sarah Palin as the new face of the Republican Party,
Along with Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney.

Also. Palin news is always funny. And I like to laugh.
So , I heard from a co-worker that Palin is going to write a tell-all book!

14. The more time freaks like the Palins spend in the public eye,
the more ridiculous the republican party looks. Every wingnut that goes on TV and calls for their freak followers to take up arms, discredits the GOP.

Let's see them all out in the open.

20. The Eminem video was cool
Nice to see him back. Always liked him - well, as much as I like any rapper other than Immortal Technique and Mos Def - especially after the vid he did trying to get kids to go vote (against the republicans).

Here's the link to the new vid: http://www.mtv.com/videos/eminem/368090/we-made-you.jht...

36. Day 1: News conference adamently refusing any stim money
Less then 24 hrs later her spokesperson says: "she didn't really mean no---the money is still on the table". Then she releases info a few days ago pretty much saying she will take the money BUT will be using some sort of line item veto power when it hits her desk so she can pick and choose what projects will get the money.
Now imagine her dealing with the current economic meltdown on a national level. We'd all have whiplash from her yes, no,maybe, yes again but to this and not that. And that would probably all be within a day!

30. What kills me is that the MSM reports her ridiculousness side by side with serious issues
In the same "news" program they report on her stupid comments about missile shield right next to the Jerry Springer shit that is Levi and bristol.


America and the world dodged a hollow point bullet. 47% of voters thought Palin should be a year old heartbeat away from power.

Edited on Wed Apr-08-09 05:55 PM by rainbow4321
Screen saving/hard copies need to be done of the most damning stuff. Of course, things that she and her clan say and do may not seem damning upon first look but who knows will unfold in a month, a year, and in four years. Or should I say 3 years if she launches a Prez campaign.
Then she and her minions will start to scrub the Net clean of articles and pics. She has a history of re doing her official gov page when it's content is questoned. Back in September there were dated family pics that disappeared and then reappeared with what some said were different dates.
Just saying, in three years it may be hard to Google what we are reading and seeing now. Even making a web article or pic part of one's "favorites" may not work cuz we will get "this article/website can not be found"

I won't tell you that as I clicked on it, I was shaking my head, silently saying, "Will, Will, Will... you poor, dumb bastard. What happened? Did you fall and hit your head?"

Yes. Of course-- more Plain, please... with a side of Jindal. My dream ticket in 2012.

42. For your reading pleasure...Sarah asked Bristol if she was pregnant on May 14 2007
Edited on Wed Apr-08-09 07:43 PM by rainbow4321
Scroll the pdf....screen shots of myspace entries.


From:
http://www.palindeception.com/blog /

I need to provide a quick update. This week, National Enquirer ran an article about a former boyfriend of Bristol Palin's, and named him. Several other teens involved in this story have also been named in national media. We have reconsidered our decision NOT to "name names." We are using teens' real names in our posts. However, we are not using any last names, nor are we linking to the actual MySpace pages.

Please note that at the end of this post, there is a .pdf attachment which contains screen shots of the comments used in this post as well as the documentation that we used to prove that the redacted MySpace account that we have identifed as Bristol's was in fact hers.



(snip, snip, snip)

Even complaining that one is sick of hearing about the Palins and their soap opera requires mentioning the Palins and their soap opera.

Edited on Wed Apr-08-09 08:12 PM by tblue37
Democratic nomination. Palin is just the frontrunner in name recognition, as Lieberdweeb was. But I do like the fact that the Republicans' noses are being rubbed in the stupidity that they had this creature as their VP nominee.

BTW, it's "you're." I assume you were just copy-pasting someone else's comment, but still. . . .

(Never mind--I see others have mentioned it and you missed the edit window.)

She'll wish she'd taken the $2 million before the 2012 elections come around.

The last time I laughed so hard at Alaska republican politics was when Mr. Lindauer ran (if you can call it that) for governor c.1998.

53. I wish she'd keep her powder dry for a few years. I WANT her to be the 2012 candidate.
At this rate, she is burning her candle too fast. She'll ruin her chances of being the Republican nominee if this keeps up this soon.

I want her to STFU and reappear in a few years. I want her to win the Republican nomination. (Which makes me absolutely sick about the mentality of certain Repukes.)

My freeper uncle says he voted for Palin. I thought McCain was the one on the top of the ticket.

Dumb fuckwads, every one of them. :eyes:
