Crazy Like a Fox: Sarah Palin

This girl is playing all you ‘lamestream’ media outlets like a damn fiddle. I mean the Robin Roberts interview was a fluff piece. The definition of ‘fluff.’

NO follow-up questions, NO pointing out her contradictions, NO answering to things that REALLY matter. These questions were totally submitted before-hand. And the only controversial thing Palin addressed was what Aaron Sorkin said about her. Calling her a ‘Witless-Bully.’ That’s it?? I promise you that she only answering  that, was calculated.

The hypocrisy with this woman is so outrageous that all I can do is laugh now. And the media … all the media is falling for it; hook, line, and sinker. She’s setting this up, if she does an interview with ABC, CBS, or NBC and looks good, she will ALWAYS refer to it as … ‘nuh uh, you can’t say I avoid mainstream media … look at that interview.’ ie. Robin Roberts. And if an interview goes badly, she will always say, ‘they are out to get me. I am the victim of the lamestream media.’ And so many people are falling for it. it’s beyond ridicules.

In this video she talks about debating. I was literally laughing at that. I don’t think she knows what a debate is. Sarah Palin has her Republican talking points and that’s it.

LAMESTREAM MEDIA … ASK HER THESE QUESTIONS:

1.) You are ok with the N word and the F word, but the R word sends you into a tizzy making you call for people’s jobs, right? Please explain THIS reasoning. Well, it’s self-explanatory if you ask me. Dr. Laura Schlessinger said the N word on her show 11 times. ELEVEN. And you said, “Don’t retreat, reload.” Really? Rahm Emanuel called members of his own party ‘retards’ and you called for his job. YOU, Sarah Palin, are the Queen of FAKE outrage, and quite frankly … a racist.

2.) You kept talking about ‘Obama’s death panels’ last summer, do you REALLY believe Obama assembled a ‘death panel’ to determine who would live or die? And now that there really is a death panel in Arizona, why aren’t you outraged about that? Oh, is it because when it’s your own party, it’s heroic, when it’s the democrats … it’s a ‘death panel.’ You NEED to answer for this. But YOU ARE A COWARD.

3.) Here’s another thing … you gave this interview with Mary Hart and said you will run for President, “If noone else will.” Really? Has there EVER in this history of the world ever been a time when the GOP didn’t have a someone to run for President? YOU are a damn moron. MORON. And people who watch this video and say, ” Oh My God. She IS a martyr. She WILL step up.” They ARE bigger morons than you. It’s daunting that so many stupid people live in this country. It’s quite embarrassing. And be proud Sarah, all of the dumb ones are YOUR supporters. The REAL America.

Yes I know these questions are from two blogs ago but I want them asked dammit!

Peace.

Fox News Viewers “Most Misinformed” Of All News Consumers

There is a difference in what Fox says, and what the rest of them do and have said. They can’t be in the same category with Fox.

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/study-fox-news-viewers-most-misinformed-of-all-news-consumers/

Researchers at the University of Maryland have released a study of news viewers entitled, “Misinformation and the 2010 Election” (.pdf) and found news viewers often get the wrong idea on major stories, and–according to the study–Fox News viewers are the “most misinformed” of them all.

Of course, one could argue that the academic world is the province of progressive thought, filled with many individuals who’ve developed a distaste in Fox News’ unique brand of opiniotainment. Nonetheless, the study is interesting regardless of one’s point of you and even suggests that the more someone watches Fox, the more misinformed they get.

According to the researchers, daily Fox News viewers–regardless of their political party affiliation–were “significantly” more likely than non-Fox viewers to believe:

Most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely)

Most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points)

The economy is getting worse (26 points)

Most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points)

The stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points)

Their own income taxes have gone up (14 points)

The auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points)

When TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points)

And that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)

The suggestion that Fox News viewers are “misinformed” comes after a series of leaked memos from Fox News Washington bureau chief Bill Sammon that gave specific coverage guidelines on hot button issues like health care and climate change.

But it’s not just Fox News viewers who are misinformed, as Talking Points Memo reports:

Daily consumers of MSNBC and public broadcasting (NPR and PBS) were higher (34 points and 25 points respectively) in believing that it was proven that the US Chamber of Commerce was spending money raised from foreign sources to support Republican candidates. Daily watchers of network TV news broadcasts were 12 points higher in believing that TARP was signed into law by President Obama, and 11 points higher in believing that most Republicans oppose TARP.

Update:
Michael Clemente, Senior Vice President of News Editorial for FOX News:

“The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having ‘Students Who Study The Least’ and being the ‘Best Party School’” adding “given these fine academic distinctions, we’ll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was ‘researched’ with.”

Republicans Lack Integrity.

The new definition for being Republican kinda means you ARE a hypocrite, and that you’re ok with that label.  The lack of integrity coming out of the Republican party is breathtaking.

From www.Dictionary.com

in·teg·ri·ty: adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

 

John McCain:

This guy USED to be one of the good guys. He may have been a Republican, but at least he had a conscience. He WAS a maverick … Until August 29, 2008. Now I still have a hard time believing that McCain actually had anything to do with the decision to bring Palin on as his running mate. As soon as she opened her mouth, I was like WHAT?? I’m sure McCain agreed to this pick under duress. And watching him have to defend her for the next three months made for cringe-worthy TV moments.

But as we all know, he has done some MASSIVE flip-flopping on many recent issues. During the mid-term campaign, he just about flip-flopped on EVERY issue. But what really makes John McCain disgusting, is the flip-flopping he did with ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.’ And watching this SOB try to defend himself is sickening. THIS is hypocrisy at its finest or worst, whatever you prefer. Rachel Maddow is brilliant … this video IS brilliant. One can only hope McCain actually watched it. I think he may watch it, and go into spin mode, “How can I spin this so I don’t look as bad as it seems?” I really think John McCain has become that guy.  This video IS the ultimate about John McCain flip-flopping. Thank you Rachel Maddow.

So John, are you ever going to answer to any of this? Will you ever grow some balls and sit down with Rachel Maddow and answer to each and every one of your flip-flopping issues? No, you won’t. Which is sad because YOU were a War Hero. WERE. Not anymore. Your POW status means nothing now that you have ZERO integrity. ZERO, ZILCH, NADA, NONE. This video is for pure entertainment.

—————————————————————————————–

Sarah Palin:

First watch this video, two years ago they did a ‘fact-check’ on her and whoa baby … lie after lie after lie.  So she started out this way. Well, just watch:

Question: All of you Palin supporters, what makes you continue being a supporter of hers, even though she has told lie after lie after lie? This means that integrity means NOTHING to a Republican when supporting a candidate. Sarah Palin IS free of integrity. And there isn’t anyone out there that can prove that she does have integrity. One being that she refuses to answer for anything. And when I say anything … I mean ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. It just seems she has her Republican talking points, and that’s it. Why? Because that’s all she knows. She has to be fed information. This woman lacks knowledge unlike anybody I have ever seen. Yet, she gets away with it. To me, the absolute WORST thing about Sarah Palin is that she is not held accountable for anything that comes out of her mouth, or any of her actions.

QUESTIONS FOR SARAH PALIN:

1,) You are ok with the N word and the F word, but the R word sends you into a tizzy making you call for people’s jobs, right? Please explain THIS reasoning. Well, it’s self-explanatory if you ask me. Dr. Laura Schlessinger said the N word on her show 11 times. ELEVEN. And you said, “Don’t retreat, reload.” Really? Rahm Emanuel called members of his own party ‘retards’ and you called for his job. YOU, Sarah Palin, are the Queen of FAKE outrage, and quite frankly … a racist.

2.) You kept talking about ‘Obama’s death panels’ last summer, do you REALLY believe Obama assembled a ‘death panel’ to determine who would live or die? And now that there really is a death panel in Arizona, why aren’t you outraged about that? Oh, is it because when it’s your own party, it’s heroic, when it’s the democrats … it’s a ‘death panel.’ You NEED to answer for this. But YOU ARE A COWARD.

3.) Here’s another thing … you gave this interview with Mary Hart and said you will run for President, “If noone else will.” Really? Has there EVER in this history of the world ever been a time when the GOP didn’t have a someone to run for President? YOU are a damn moron. MORON. And people who watch this video and say, ” Oh My God. She IS a martyr. She WILL step up.” They ARE bigger morons than you. It’s daunting that so many stupid people live in this country. It’s quite embarrassing. And be proud Sarah, all of the dumb ones are YOUR supporters. The REAL America.

Quite honestly, I could do blog after blog about Sarah Palin and how horrible of a person/woman she is. I asked myself this about a month ago: I was watching Palin at some rally and she was bashing ‘Obamacare.’ And I was wondering, if someone asked her just one question about Health Care Reform, could she even answer? All she knows are her talking points. She doesn’t have one original thought. I have asked many Republicans over the last year to show me one, just ONE original Sarah Palin thought. Just one. And they can’t. They are ALL talking points.

I could go on about this wench but that will be another blog … and another one after that … and another one after that.

Mike Huckabee:

Ugh. This guy was ok ’til he made the statement about gays adopting children as ‘a Science experiment.’ He’s gross. He thinks letting gay people adopt is like ‘treating the children like puppies.’ What a horrible, horrible thing to say. The problem is that nobody asks the follow-up questions. If I would have heard him say that, my response would be, “Really? How many children have YOU adopted?” and “If you did, I wonder if you would have ever considered adopting a black baby/child? Or a special needs child?” I doubt it. So in a retort interview with Rosie O’Donnell, (and she failed miserably with the questions she asked) he was telling lie after lie. He gave the standard, “I know gay people who have adopted.” LIAR. No you don’t. Absolutely not. That’s a lie. Because if you did know gay people, period, you would NEVER have said the things you did. NEVER. That’s just like the ‘I have black friends’ excuse for a racist statement. Mike Huckabee, YOU lack integrity. But you’re Republican, and it’s kinda the ‘Republican’ thing to do.

Republicans:

Well as I have been writing this, I am also watching this Tax Bill implode. The Republicans here are really showing a lack of integrity, dignity, or just humanity.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas has requested 54 earmarks worth more than $170 million and Sen. John Thune of South Dakota has made 43 requests totaling more than $165 million. When asked by Fox News to explain his earmarks, Cornyn said Wednesday, “I believe I can. But I’m not going to, because I’m going to vote against this bill. … So I am for voting this bill down, even though it could arguably help some of my constituents.”

This is stunning. I have to say after this stunt, if you do vote Republican from here on out, you need to have your head examined. It almost seems like the did everything they could to get President Obama to compromise and get them what they want … only to throw it in his face. The Republicans are trying to be the heroes here. ‘Look at us, we are AGAINST this bill because of all the wasteful spending, even though a GOOD portion is our own earmarks … but WE are going to give the American people what they want. We are, and Obama caved and he is ALL for earmarks. We are not. But, don’t forget that we forced the President into a corner and MADE him compromise.’ No, wait … PLEASE FORGET THAT.

This right here is priceless:

 —————————————————————————————

I could go on and on about Republican hypocrisy, and how they lack integrity. This blog contains some that have been weighing heavily on my mind lately. Maybe I was just venting.

PLEASE remember logic, truth, and reason should ALWAYS trump any situation. TRUTH & FACTS … these two things should be the only things that matter, in any discussion and in any situation.

Peace.
