Skip to comments.Noah Green: That evil Sarah Palin is stealing all of the Huckster’s Chick-fil-A credit, or something

This is hilarious. I guess its a slow news day for David Frum and his underlings. Noah Green, who Frum brought over to the Daily Beast after his spectacular failure at Frum Forum, apparently has his drawers in a bunch because he believes lefty Tim Stanley at the U.K tabloid, The Telegraph, gave Governor Palin what he considers to be too much credit for Chick-fil-A-gate. Im not making this up:
I think Stanley is missing the real story here. Palin was just one of many conservatives who went to eat at Chick-Fil-A, her attendance is not that exceptional. The conservative who has taken a much more actively leadership role in this culture war is one who is much less incendiary and less prone to bomb throwing: Mike Huckabee.
Mike Huckabee announced plans for Chick-Fil-A appreciation day on his Facebook page on July 22nd.
I dont recall hearing Governor Palin take any credit whatsoever for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, nor do I recall her diminishing Hucks role in it. What I do recall is the Governor headlining a Tea Party rally for Ted Cruz where she delivered a rousing speech, then stopping by a Chick-fil-A and tweeting a couple pictures. And this, evidently, is proof that Governor Palin is engaged in some kind of nefarious plot to steal the Hucksters credit? My own reaction was that her tweet was in support of the Chick-fil-A Day cause. Am I missing something?
And while were at it, who cares who gets the credit? I know I dont. Why is this worth Green wetting his pants over? I can only surmise its because Green, Frum, and the other guardians of the squishy middle in the punditocracy dont want Governor Palin to get credit for anything because shes too incendiary (meaning effective) while the genteel Hucks less prone to bomb throwing. Hes also only slightly less respected in conservative circles than David Frum. Howd that David Dewhurst endorsement work out for Huck? Or that Jon Bruning endorsement in Nebraska? I digress. After more effusive praise of the Hucksters moderation, Green steps in it:
It was the exact opposite of the usual Palin method. Huckabee didnt say that people who dont eat Chick-Fil-A were un-American
Um neither did Governor Palin, Champ.
he didnt suggest that liberal elites look down on those who enjoyed fast food.
And once again, neither did Governor Palin. Its always quite revealing when these crap weasels have to make up, er, crap to discredit someone, no?
“And once again, neither did Governor Palin. Its always quite revealing when these crap weasels have to make up, er, crap to discredit someone, no?”
No different than the idiot PDSers running around FR with a stick placed uncomfortably I guess. Same BS, different BSers is all.
The only certainties in life are death, taxes and abject morons showing up on Palin threads to bash a person who believes the same they claim to...because it’s Palin. Nevermind she’s one of our strongest voices. Nevermind she’s right 90+% of the time. Nope. Just bash her because ...just because.
Or the PDSers aren’t who and what they say they are. Well we know they aren’t ‘what’, but the ‘who’ is still an open question.
Just wait, one will be here soon. If not in the time it took to post this.
They trash her because she is right and they can’t stand it..they can’t stand the fact that she has millions of supporters out there who see her as a class act who cares about this country. When Ted Cruz won, she not ONCE took credit for him winning, she credited the Tea Party and Mark Levin..she never once took credit, because for her its not about taking credit, its about saving this country
That list now includes Dick Cheney of all people.
Personally I think some males think it was God talking when Adam blamed God and that woman for his sin. I have heard some preachers and many men say as much. And then there are some females who have to spend so much of their time to get that attractive look, and other gals who consider themselves of much higher sophistication that Sarah's gifts are to be envied. The easiest way to demonstrate the male/female envy is to belittle, trash and ridicule. When the facts are none of them could walk in her shoes and be as successful as she has been.
Just wait till she racks up a few more wins and the ‘Rasputin’ comparisons will began. They can’t help it I guess. Once one begins down the path of liberal attack dog, there’s no going back. Fortunately the facts are on Palin’s side. As are the actual believers in conservative philosophy and policy.
Now for the mewling victims out there, no she’s not perfect. But she is demonstrably better than most.
Yeah, who would have ever thought that Dick Cheney would be the lead spokesman for the perverts agenda... bash Sarah and maybe the liberals will love him, finally.
I have regular go-arounds with one of them that is seemingly of that view. Actually I think he hates her because he or one of his buddies was playing for the other team when she dropped the hammer on the crony BS in AK.
But whatever his excuse, that’s all it is.
Oh, so that is the problem. I thought the problem was that Sarah does not know her place, serving sandwiches, and do what the man needs done. In some circles it is not acceptable for a woman to leave the house and lead. Anyway I stay off those threads, because I don't want to be seen picking on those of 'frailty' of the mind where Sarah is concerned. So my stay on this thread might be short.
Oh don’t get me wrong. If Chick Fil A had all the sandwiches in stock this particular PDSer called for her to make him, they would never have run out yesterday ;)
Misogyny is a HUGE part of the hate for these people, no doubt. Speaking for myself, I am not threatened by assertive wimminz. But it seems many are.
Interesting that we didn’t see pictures of Willard eating at Chick-fil-A yesterday.
Ted Cruz (the next US Senator from the Great State of Texas) served Chick-fil-A at his victory party the other night.
Like I said, interesting...
Isn’t one of his daughters a lesbian?
Like I said, interesting...
But can you say unexpected?
Ain't too much boldness in old Mittens, might offend people who hate his guts anyway, might also get the MSM talking against him, which they do anyway.
