“It’s Classified” Mentally Ill Character Based on Sarah Palin
September 29, 2011

Former top McCain aide Nicolle Wallace’s latest novel includes a character based on Sarah Palin (a nutbag VP who resigns in disgrace, much like an ethically-challenged psycho who is forced from office to become a reality TV celebrity).

Nicolle Wallace did her level best to knowingly get the real psychopath, Sarah Palin, into high office and now she aims to profit from that.

You can download the book free at mediafire if you’re interested in reading it. I’m not.

Forbes Magazine Hits Out at Sarah Palin’s Flying Monkeys for “making a hero of the Revolution into a traitor”
June 5, 2011

In an article titled The Palin Apologists Strike Back!, Rick Ungar of Forbes Magazine’s ‘The Policy Page’ takes offense at efforts by Sarah Palin’s Cult to contort their leader’s uneducated blathering about Paul Revere into something else entirely, thereby distorting the truth even further:

“Following the Sarah Palin playbook of never admitting error, the ex-governor’s minions are busy flooding the Internet with ’proof’ that Palin did not misspeak when suggesting that Paul Revere warned the British that they would not be taking arms from the colonists during his ride where he, apparently, rung bells and fired muskets.

The effort to back up Palin is based on taking bits and pieces of facts surrounding the historic event that, when cut and pasted together, work to make Palin look a little less befuddled than her actual statement would indicate.

While I give them credit for the effort, I’m afraid that – to any rational person – it is a lost cause.

Let’s set the historic record straight.

The first meme being pushed by the Palin acolytes is that Paul Revere did, indeed, warn the British as to the troop levels of colonists awaiting them.

Not true.

What is true is that Revere was briefly captured (along with two others who managed to quickly escape) and held by the British while on his now legendary ride. With a pistol aimed at his chest, and then his head, Revere was forced to answer the questions put to him. He answered by lying to his British captors, misleading them by overstating the number of armed colonists awaiting the arrival of the Regulars in an effort to give the enemy pause and confuse their mission.

As made clear via Revere’s own letter setting forth the story of the event (which is making the rounds of the conservative blogosphere), and through any number of historic accounts, at no time did Revere warn his captors of anything, or make any rousing speeches as to how they would not be getting their hands on the colonists’ guns as suggested by Gov. Palin.

Revere did what any good patriot would do in that circumstance – he lied to the enemy to aid and protect his compatriots. Thus, when Palin’s legion of defenders suggest that Revere warned the enemy , they are suggesting that he sold out his side.

Any American should be distressed at this effort to paint Paul Revere as less of a patriot – all in the name of defending Sarah Palin’s ridiculous remark.

Sarah Palin Employee, Rebecca Mansour: BIG. FAT. LIAR.
May 24, 2011

The face that launched a thousand insults

Super-sized queen of vitriol, Rebecca Mansour, has put her big foot right in the poo.

It seems that failed-screenwriter Mansour, the inelegant voice who puts words in Palin’s mouth, got very “friendly” with an online identity and shared quite a few tidbits about life with the Palins – among other things – via Direct-Message Twitter. The unknown identity has passed those Tweets to the right-wing Daily Caller blog, who published some of them yesterday.

The Daily Caller had, of course, contacted Mansour prior to publication. Mansour replied that the Tweets weren’t hers, claiming they were Photoshopped – and even made up a story about how the Photoshopping came about:

“I did actually send him one direct message. He was asking for – it was like something really innocuous – he was just asking for information about something. And I just replied and said, ‘no’ or something like that. And then the kid then used that and started to create direct messages. And that was like a real serious thing for me because I realized anyone can do that with like a screencap,” Mansour explained.

Mansour playing dumb that way isn’t going to work with anyone in the media because they’ve known the real her for a long time – remember Mansour’s infamous “surveyors’ marks” lie? – and the Daily Caller wasn’t going to be fobbed off with the usual Palin Camp ‘Photoshop” bullshit dogwhistle:

TheDC then took steps to authenticate whether the messages were real, including logging into a Hotmail account that received email announcements from Twitter with the content of the direct messages in them. Two forensic computer analysts verified that the emails had been sent from Twitter’s servers after searching the message source code for signs of forgery.

Presented with this evidence, Mansour changed her story from an initial denial to anger (“this is really kind of skeezy”), bargaining (“can I just appeal to you to leave the Bristol stuff alone?”), and sadness at the consequences of her words (“this is going to destroy my reputation simply because people will say, ‘why were you sending a direct [message to a Palin activist]?’”).

Perhaps the deservedly-lonely Bekki fell in love with the avatar of an attractive young man and imagined she was having a “personal, private” cyber-relationship with a “friend”. Reading the Tweets, two things stand out: 1) she was so into him he was ‘reading her mind’, and 2) she was aware she was being indiscreet.

Finally, rather than answer questions about the context of the messages, Mansour sent a short statement saying the messages were part of “personal private conversations between myself and someone who I thought was a friend.”

The Palin camp screws up so often it’s hardly noteworthy any more, but what is definitely surprising is some of the responses from the Palin Cult; some of them are more than ready to throw ‘RAM’ under the famous Palin bus (where she would have plenty of company with whom she’s on first-name terms):

technopeasant
It’s one thing if you are gofer in the campaign and you tell tales out of school but when you are in charge of SarahPAC, Palin’s fundraising arm you are in a position of responsibility that unfortunately reflects favorably or unfavorably on your boss as the case may be. It just goes with the territory.

illegalpointofview
It’s not good. she herself is saying it’s confidential and she shouldn’t be repeating.

crunchingk
It looks like ram lied to dc if so she’s probobly toast!well maybye this will get team palin to get a pro media machine this is the bigleages!

c4pfan
I do trust Sarah to do what’s best for her & if it’s without RAM, that’s fine by me.

Palin_Patriot
She didnt even know the person !!!! It was some random person online … Maybe RAM was just trying to show off or whatever. I dont know but the bottom line is RAM is hurting Sarah and she has not even announced yet.

I am sure RAM is a great person and everything, but the reality is she proved she does not have the discipline to be involved in a presidential campaign. Thats not a knock on her, but this battle in 2012 is for all the marbles. Axelrod and Plouffe would eat RAM alive if Romneys hired guns didnt do it first. I dont think Sarah has any choice but to cut ties with RAM over this. This is not going to just blow over by itself.

Bratch
How can any intelligent person have such intimate conversations with someone they’ve never met in person? It’s mind-boggling.

Vendome
Rebecca: Whoever told you “just be yourself” couldn’t have given you worse advice.

freedumb2003
Is she young and part of the whole “twitter-I-am-in-Starbucks-restroom-taking-a-number-2” generation? Otherwise how could anyone be so stupid as to say such things?

Lazlo in PA
Mybe I’m ugly, but not as outright stupid as this moron Rebecca. Can you think of a more ill advised thing to do?

She should be fired immediately. What else is the Daily Caller withholding about the inner working of the family? Having her name to this and the fact that she is the supposed right hand man of Palin puts this too close.

DeVore is a solid Conservative and a lot of us were upset with Palin backing the RINO. At no point did anyone get the impression that he is a sleaze looking for a drive time radio slot. I don’t like it.

onyx
Bad form on Mansour’s part to betray a trust with Sarah Palin to share *confidential* information with anyone.

harmonium
Her tight inner circle doesn’t really get discretion too well, do they?

A few of the Palinutz think Mrs Palin should give Blabbermouth Bekki a break …

sarahpalinrocks2 to Palin_Patriot
RAM is smart. She can explain this when given a chance. The Bristol comments are the most embarrassing in my opinion. RAM will know better next time and choose her online confidants with greater discretion.

…. but only a few ….

Palin_Patriot to sarahpalinrocks2
(referring to President Obama) He’s going to be twice as dangerous from a “running a campaign” angle as he was in 2008, and you want Sarah to counter that with RAM, of the “let me tweet some really damaging things to some person online I just met”?

Now, ask yourself why a right-wing blog should be dissing Mrs Palin …

Is this the answer?

Sarah Palin [via wordsmith Mansour] launched a lengthy attack on The Daily Caller via Facebook on Wednesday in which she slammed the conservative-leaning news organization for not featuring her quotes prominently enough.

HAPPY MAY 24TH, BEKKI – FRANK BAILEY’S BOOK, “BLIND ALLEGIANCE TO SARAH PALIN”, IS OUT TODAY. FRANK WAS ONCE SARAH PALIN’S ‘RIGHT-HAND MANSOUR’. ENJOY YOUR VACATION!

Update:

Those wacky Taiwanese of Next Media Animation have already made a figure of fun of Mansour, depicting her in their latest cartoon furiously Tweeting, with steam bursting from her ears:

Update 2:

Visiting briefly from her exile in Siberia, Bekki Mansour was spotted on June 29th, stalking Sarah Palin at the premiere of Palin’s Tribute to Herself, The UnderFetid.

“Sarah Palin: Produce YOUR Academic Papers” Crooks and Liars Challenges
April 28, 2011

After the President spoiled her little snark party, Mrs Palin went off on another tangent:

What the heck is wrong with asking the President of the United States to disclose what his college thesis was, what some of the um, uh, Harvard Law Review papers were that he wrote? I don’t care about his grades. I don’t care if he was a C student, more power to the C student.

What I care about is what goes into his thinking today, what is his foundation? From his background, a lot of that could be reflected in the writings he produced as a college and a grad student.

Mrs Palin can easily find an awful lot of the “um, uh, Harvard Law Review papers” written by the President, though probably only in libraries where books about gay people are not banned. Heck, she can pay someone to read it for her, if the only thing she can read is a signed $100,000 check.

In my view, Mrs Palin has nil interest in whatever the President contributed to the Harvard Law Review. He’s half-black, you know.

karoli, of Crooks and Liars, has an academic challenge of her own for Mrs Palin, who famously tried out many and varied institutions of higher education until she presumably found one that would give her a diploma (if, indeed, she has one). karoli writes:

Here’s my simple challenge, Sarah. You attended four universities in six years, before finally managing to eke out a degree from the University of Idaho in journalism. Over that fine university career, did you write anything? If so, would you be kind enough to produce it?

And let’s say you can’t really produce any documents you wrote when you were in college. Let’s talk about the tens of thousands you’ve spent on ‘advisors’ to assist you with your knowledge of foreign affairs, your messaging, and your strategies. Let’s see.

There’s the right-wing journalist Joshua Livestro, who you pay $4,000/month. What does he add to your thinking, your views? Is his background your background?

How about Orion Strategies, who you pay $10,000 per month for “issue consulting”? What, exactly, does Randy Scheunemann contribute to your thinking for that 120K per year salary?

Then there’s the matter of the $10,000 per month retainer your PAC pays North Star Strategies to ghostwrite your Facebook posts? Certainly you wouldn’t have a Bill Ayers of your own would you?

You know, for the $59,500 per month you shell out to consultants like those I’ve named, you must be getting a hell of an education. That’s pricier than Harvard, and you didn’t even have to avail yourself of affirmative action to get in on the action. Plus, it’s all paid for by taxpayers!!! Wow, Sarah, that’s a real deal.

So what the heck is the matter with me asking you, Sarah Palin, to satisfy my ordinary-person curiosity about what you’re learning from all these highly-compensated consultants? How do these people shape your views?

Sarah Palin Unveils Her New Disguise: “Do I Look Presidential Yet?”
March 29, 2011

Halloween's not until October, Sarah

Will anyone be fooled by the wig dumped on the back of her head or the absence of her greasy bangs (and does this mean she’s going to start showering regularly?) or will folks be more struck by how those frames highlight her facelift? Could those eyebrows have been pulled any higher?

Sarah Palin Bombs on American Idol
February 24, 2011

In her recent literary offering, Mrs Palin wrote very nasty things about American Idol contestants, insisting they were spoiled by their over-indulgent parents not telling them all their lives that they sucked, so it’s no surprise she’s persona non grata at that great TV institution.

But ….. the Palin flying monkeys’ policy is to use every website available to post comments making everything about Palin. And one brave flapping monkey posted on a Yahoo column about last night’s show.

There is some hope for the country when even young fans of American Idol don’t take Sarah Palin seriously as an adult (or as anything else).




And the question that really needs to be asked is: Why didn’t Mama Grisly tell Bristol that she sucked at dancing?

Shame on you, Bristol Palin
February 17, 2011

I’m sure we all remember Bristol ‘Miss Piggy’ Palin being dragged around the studio – or writhing on the floor, or simply stroking herself – on Dancing With the Stars. The Teabaggers spammed the voting until Miss Piggy collected a neat $345,000 for her very professional pelvic thrusting.

Now watch this lady, who’s older than Bristol Palin’s grandmother. Watch as she puts her foot down, saying, “I’m not Bristol Palin and this is not Dancing With the Stars – so quit dragging me around the floor and start dancing!”

[youtube.com/watch?v=q0XMGnM5HIM]

We’re not worthy, Ma’am.

Bristol Palin ought to return every penny.

Sarah Palin’s Cult Nominating Her Running Mate
January 4, 2011

Madam Presidentess

The bent ignoramuses at the Palin Cult HQ have molested their quivering braincells yet again in the service of their Princess Jesus, and gathered over the holidays to select the next Vice-President of the United States of America because, yeah, in the land they inhabit these Einsteins can do that.

Stephanie87 says:
I’ve thought for while now that she could end up picking Giuliani, too. He’s liked her and stuck up for her from the beginning, and he’d be a great draw for the independent vote… and the NY and California voters.

Jindal, I like, but I don’t think he’d be all that great of a campaigner. He’s brilliant in interviews, but it’s almost impossible to catch all the brilliant things he says cause he talks too fast.

Rubio is going to be a Washington insider by then, and I kinda have a feeling Palin isn’t gonna pick someone without executive experience, either.

dr_vicki says:
Think about it. If there is no one, or only one or two candidates who pose a serious challenge, Gov Palin could one by one roll out cabinet picks. It seems like any of the minor challengers who wanted a shot at an executive pick might drop out in order to have a chance at an appointment. You know those other guys gotta be looking at Gov Palin as inevitable. Maybe not an inevitable winner, but an inevitable fight.

section9 says:
Way too soon for that. Remember what happened to Joltin’ Joe Miller? He was buying office furniture for Washington, and then lost has butt to Madame Write-In.

Never pick the drapes in the Oval Office. People hate that.

KeeleyH says:
Not BEFORE she even has the nomination yet. But once she’s the nominee, it will be ok, IMO.

JAN says:
But won’t that leave the cabinet picks open to attacks by the MSM. The MSM would check into their backgrounds and if they found anything they would blow it into a major scandal and harp on it for weeks. They could even make things up. The campaign could turn into Palin’s poor judgment on cabinet picks.

KeeleyH says:
I know a lot of people here like Allen West. But he is too much of an unknown to most people. Sarah needs someone older and already well known and well liked. I think it will be ok if she picks:

Rudy Giuliani – VP
Mitt Romney – Sec. of Treasury (to unite the Romney/establishment fraction)
Joe Lieberman – Sec. of State
John McCain – Sec. of Defense

johnmd says:
I dissagree with the last two. Lieberman is to old plus he is a wuss. Liz Cheney She is a foreign policy expert , has worked a long time under Condi Rice in the State Dept. She would be a good one there she also has a spine. I like Newt for sec of defense. He has asked some good questions like do we really need 942 military bases and do we really need a 250 million a copy ground support aircraft.

susiepuma says:
Are you serious???

Giuliani – no vote from me – ugh!
Romney – no
Liberman – turncoat – no trust here – reminds me of spector, coleman –
mccain – he’s done –

excopconservative says:
Please, no Lieberman or McCain. I would guess she might like Steve Forbes as VP. The economy is still going to be the issue in 2012 and he is strong there and she was a Forbes supporter in 2000. I’d take Giuliani as AG any day. The contrast between Holder and Giuliani couldn’t be clearer. I hope she keeps Romney at arms length. I think she’ll choose people she trusts and she probably doesn’t trust him. I’d also like to see Joe Arpaio as director of Homeland Security.

Punchumgum would like to see Joe Arpaio in Mexico.
