Skip to comments.Sarah Palin called 'borderline lunatic' by Newsweek reporter
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."
The Blaze reported a similar exchange on MSNBC.

1.....you knew it was an ugly woman......2....you knew time/life was involved....(don’t kid yourself thinking they ain’t connected....)
As I noted in a different NONE of these people could carry Sarah Palin’s jock strap.
Serious contender for Most Incoherent Commentary.
Maybe it’s time we just ignore these idiots.
Geez this stuff is getting old.
The called Reagan a “dottering old man”. It’s all they’ve got. Every Republican is nuts.
Come on guys. Try something different for a change.
An ugly woman with at least one abortion in her past.
Anyone who talks like that has no place speaking on the radio for a living.
Crazy like a fox.
They trash her. They ridicule her. They call her crazy. Because she’s normal, they’re not.
The formula for disparaging Republican women is Nuts AND Sluts.
They've done 'Nuts', where's the 'Sluts'???!?
WHERE'S THE 'SLUTS'???!?
Any one of them would give their left breast to be as popular, and half as smart, as Sarah.
Every mention of Sarah in the media serves as evidence of her power and the threat she poses to them.
The stories about Huckabee being a contender recently have been cracking me up. LOL
She's not ugly, on the outside.
It’s the professionalism I respect. Pretty much the same thing they said about the Tea Party for the past 2 yrs.
Pray for the Tea Congress
Loves the Country
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
Conservative and not ashamed of it.
No wonder they hate her.
What really ticks them off is they’ve fired just about every nasty weapon in their arsenal, attacks that would have destroyed lesser mortals, and Sarah is still standing (and smiling).
These people are obnoxious - and dishonest. I wish they would get another job, but they are only suited for modern “journalism”.
How about laughing at the idiots? That will really annoy them, since they think they are everyone’s betters.
It's no longer worth commenting on ~ just another piece of propaganda.
No reputable reporter or writer works for them.
I guess we’re just a few of Sara’s lunatic FRiends.

[ touts perennial GOP-backstabber Romney ]"
One couldn’t even apply the qualifier “borderline” to a reporter who would work for Newsweak.
The source of most leftist women’s hate for Sarah.
I suppose that same “News”week reporter honored Michael Isikoff for faking that story about flushed korans at Gitmo.
You got more out of it than I did. I have no clue what he was trying to say.
They tried that one already with the Enquirer running "unnamed source" stories about Sarah having affairs with one of Todd's former associates.
No, but she does have that east-coast blue state liberal look about her
“SARAH PALIN: Whoo, Nevada.”
An obvious misattribution.
That’s why you never let her inside.
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. ..."
It really is kind of sad that the 'libs are so bankrupt ideologically (heck, on every front/issue) that they have nothing left but wild personal attacks...
They only hire certified lunatics.
Sayyyyyy...isn’t Newsweak the publication that DemocRAT Congresshole Jane Harman bought for one dollar a little while back?
That’s really what it is. To them, anyone who disagrees with liberalism has something wrong with them.
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.
Every word of their evil are lies... they have no truth in them.
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.
I am so freakin tired of this all day hate fest on palin. It is beyond the pale!!!!! I cant stand it. I hate the constant hatred on this site too of her . She has said and has done nothing to any of us and most important she hasnt even come out that she s running for President. Geez
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 doesnt 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.
Imagine if she’d done a Howard Dean yell or two during the campaign with McCain, they’d be beside themselves calling her a nutcase. The hypocrisy of the left is astounding and never-ending.
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.
