Lupica: Sarah Palin's appearance at the NRA convention is perfect for phony 'patriots'
The New York Daily News ^ | May 5, 2013 | Mike Lupica

Posted on 05/05/2013 10:38:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin showed up at the NRA convention the other day, which was merely perfect. She belonged there as much as anybody in the hall just because from the start, from the time John McCain picked her out of the chorus, Palin has most appealed to mean, dumb, angry crowds exactly like the one she found in Houston.

Palin should have worn a prom dress, but on this occasion wore a T-shirt that read “Women Hunt.” In her case, that means hunting for attention.

Or relevance.

She wants to be a populist and a patriot, the way the phonies cheering her on Friday think they’re patriots, and brave defenders of the Second Amendment. But all Palin did this time was turn herself out for the craziest and creepiest gun lovers on the planet. It is the same as turning yourself out for gun manufacturers.

You know Palin was talking all over again about the elite media in Houston like she is some sort of expert, even though her spectacular lack of talent has made her virtually unemployable on television.

“The same media is now the reliable poodle-skirted cheerleader for the President that writes the book on exploiting tragedy,” she said, making it sound as if the only real man in this conversation is her.

This was the day before Wayne LaPierre, the mouth breather who is the National Rifle Association’s executive vice president, got up and gave a speech of his own, one that included this line:

“How many Bostonians wished they had a gun two weeks ago?”

LaPierre is nothing more than a cheap, dangerous demagogue.....

Lupica needs to go back to writing sports-themed children’s books

But he's an expert political commentator.



Surely you've read his commentary in Golf Digest or Parade?

No doubt if he came face to face with Sarah he’d for sure wet his panties. Hope he uses some panty liners. Maybe he’d prefer to have a chat with Todd. Heheheh!

Could be in his future too.

And that SOB calls himself a journalist?? How disgusting and ignorant. Can’t say what I’d like to do with a rifle or shotgun right now but rest assured it wouldn’t be to shoot him with it. Lets just say it involves this commie’s posterior.

The really interesting thing that I noticed was that he never wasted any ink to show the errors of Palin’s positions. He just called her a bunch of names and called it a column. This seems to be a trait of the folks that bash Sarah. Never argue any of her positions, but simply cast a few aspersions, go over a few tired “facts”(’I can see Russia from my house.’ Really??) and call it a win. Curious isn’t it?

Does anyone even read the New York Slimes anymore..Hey Mike here is a suggestion, since you hate guns so much..tell the security team that protects the New York Times Headquarters to put down their weapons and carry forks instead..oh and for someone who is supposedly “irrelevant” you sure do write a lot about her..Sarah Palin, living rent free in the heads of brain dead libs since 2008 and enjoying every minute of it

Guys like him know that nobody reads what they write so they write the most outrageous things in the hope that they get a reaction.

Ignore them and they fade away

What do you expect from a gay blade like Mike Lupica? Gay Lefties like Lupica see Sarah Palin like Count Dracula at the sight of the cross. Every time I see a rant like his I Google “(their name) gay.” Sure enough, they turn up gay in spades.

Lupica has become a world-class tree-hugger. He is so cowardly and gutless that he doesn’t allow comments on his articles in The Daily News as all the other writers do. ALL of them, except for Lupica.

Typical “drive-by” Liberal.

He writes like a hack, seriously. This guy is a professional writer? He should ask for his tuition back from journalism school. No structure, just a stream of consciousness rant of bile. Basically a fact-free opinion piece. Opinion has is place, but generally you look for opinion pieces to be founded on something. Not this one.

Why didn’t he just call her and the NRA all poopyheads and be done with it? Bet the rest of the media will be patting him on the back for that snarkfest.

I was in attendance for Gov Palin’s speech at the NRA Convention. I did not see any phoney patriots, I was surrounded by a crowd of good people individuals that seek life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
