Sarah Palin called 'borderline lunatic' by Newsweek reporter
examiner.com ^ | 1/2/2011 | Joe Newby

Posted on 01/03/2011 6:11:39 AM PST by FredJake

Liberal pundits agree: Sarah Palin is horrible. Some might even say deranged.

Newsbusters reported that on New Year's Eve, Newsweek's Julia Reed called her a "borderline lunatic" on CNN's All the Best, All the Worst of 2010.

Newsweek recently released a cover naming President Obama "God of All Things."

Tim Graham posted a transcript of the relevant portion:

TOM FOREMAN, CNN ANCHOR: Best pounding of the pundits.

SARAH PALIN: Whoo, Nevada.

FOREMAN: Sarah Palin.

JULIA REED, NEWSWEEK: A borderline lunatic.

JULIE CHEN, CBS: Love her or hate her, she's definitely entertaining.

FOREMAN: The hockey mom gone rogue proved all the predictions of her political demise dead wrong, surging in prominence in Republican and Tea Party circles, giving us a new book, a new word of the year, refudiate, and even a new reality show.

RICH EISEN, NFL NETWORK: I think Sarah Palin would say she's not doing a reality show, she's -- she's showing you the peaks and valleys in the -- the -- the indigenous life of -- of Alaska. And by that I mean her husband, I think.

KATHLEEN PARKER: I think she is a brilliant politician. I think she has an instinct for the zeitgeist and for what people need to hear. But I don't see her as a serious political figure.

Is Julia Reed an expert in mental health as well as a Newsweek reporter?

Graham concludes by writing:

The biggest cliche came as CNN's year-end analysts were asked about their wishes for the New Year. CBS's Julie Chen simply said "Stop the hate. Stop the bullying. And just give peace a chance."

How ironic.

The Blaze reported a similar exchange on MSNBC.

I am increasingly shocked by the commentators, mostly on the radio (of all places) who are paid to say things like "The - the - the -- you know ... ah ... um ... the -- the Republicans can't -- can't -- ummm ... articulate their, you know ... their message .. because ... well ... ummm ... they just can't."

Anyone who talks like that has no place speaking on the radio for a living.

Every mention of Sarah in the media serves as evidence of her power and the threat she poses to them.

Attractive

Has children that she actually takes care of.
Refused to abort a down’s syndrome child
Gained political power on her own, not on the back of a husband or father.
A real coruption fighter

The WarshPost sold Newsweek for a dollar to a Leftwingtard fanatic.

It's no longer worth commenting on ~ just another piece of propaganda.

No reputable reporter or writer works for them.

Projection.
Most “liberals” suffer cognitive dissonance from trying to hold together a world view built from multiple contradictory beliefs. They're projecting their own madness on Sarah Palin.

"Liberal pundits agree: Sarah Palin is horrible. Some might even say deranged."

The "horrible" and "deranged" accusation coming from the neurotically obsessed is called, "projection".

"...Obama, in order to be a viable Democrat, had to tap into one of the prominent streams of anger, envy, bitterness, and divisiveness that define and animate the left. Oddly, his whole appeal was based on the misperception that he was beyond this sort of destructive divisiveness, but this is about as realistic as an Arab leader claiming to be "beyond the differences between Muslim and Jew," without which they could not be an Arab leader. For what does the Arab political world have to recommend itself except for an officially sanctioned target for their overflowing rage, envy, sexual insecurity, and low self-esteem? In other words, all the Arab leader has to offer his people is death to Israel.

"Similarly, what does the Democrat leader have to offer his various tribes except for [Sarah Palin], or Bush, or Cheney, or Rove, or Halliburton, or the Wealthy, or scary Christians, or Creationists, or White Racists, or misogynists, or "homophobes," or the End of the World? What's left of the Left if you remove these "containers" of projected rage and fear? Only the free-floating rage and fear. ..."

Wow, they are desperate, you might say nearly panic-driven in their attempts to marginalize Mrs. Palin any way they can.

Abortion- The source of most leftist women's hate for Sarah.

I agree. It has been said by others that abortion is the holy sacrament of the Church of Liberalism, but I fear it is even worse than that. For some women, it seems to be the only "right" worth defending; a perverse measure of self-worth whose potential denial can result in something akin to psychotic behavior.

The reason most “pro-aborts” are so vehement about defending the “right” is that they are actually “had-aborts” trying to suppress the truth of what they did.

If it’s not a “right”, then they murdered their own innocent child.

The Professional Left and the Ruling Class GOP hate Sarah because she represents everything they are not. Real, strong, hardworking, athletic, self-sufficient, moral and not given a pass by Affirmative Action, a rich or connected family or a John Kerry or John McCain-type marriage.

They hammer her for achieving success and fame.

Fear of killing Obie’s Marxism is their driver as they will be Party members under dictatorial Communist rule.

Yes - a sense of guilt does have much to do with the vehemence of the pro-abortion crowd. I did not understand that back when (over 20 years ago) I was still more or less “pro-choice”, and could not quite understand why some of them would get almost violently angry at me for suggesting that perhaps second-trimester abortions ought to be restricted, and third-trimester abortions not allowed unless the mother’s life was in jeopardy. That is when I began to understand that some of them were absolutists in a cult of death.

JULIA REED, NEWSWEEK: A borderline lunatic.

Sarah Palin is the bête noire of libtardism. Many libtards express an almost violent reaction to her. The reason is not hard to imagine. She threatens their paradigm of emotionalism, secular humanism, postmodernism, altruism, collectivism, statism, and socialism.

And she doesn’t fit in with their agenda of central planning and control, initiation of force, violation of natural rights, tyrannical destruction of freedom, wealth expropriation and redistributionism, interventionism, social engineering, permissive “new morality”, paternalism, egalitarianism, social justice, economic democracy, diversity, destruction of Christianity, and destruction of American sovereignty under a one world government.

Libtards are so blinded by their belief in the myth of the possibility of a perfect socio-politico-economic utopia which is based on the principles of libtardism that any opposition to their vision is considered to be crazy.

It’s their own deeply troubled conscience that they hate. But they can’t admit that. So they hate who they see as the symbol of a clear conscience: Sarah Palin.
