[MSNBC's Martin] Bashir: Palin ‘morally bankrupt and politically backward’
MSNBC ^ | March 18, 2013 | Martin Bashir

Posted on 03/18/2013 4:05:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Maritn Bashir explains that any successful attempt for the Republican Party to rebrand must include acknowledging that Sarah Palin and her attempts to smear President Obama and cash in on her fame are part of the problem – not a solution.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

This content comes from Closed Captioning that was broadcast along with this program.

>>> it's time now to "clear the air." one has to feel a simple amount of sympathy for poor reince priebus, chairman of the rnc and for leading the post-election analysis. whatever he may honestly believe about the need for greater inclusiveness and party that reaches out to modern america, he simply cannot compete with the true darling of the republican party .

>> those in that political bubble who try to tell you who's worthy and who just doesn't fit their bill. the last thing we need is washington, d.c., vetting our candidates.

>> miss palin is not interested in any kind of thoughtful analysis. instead, her sole interest is to perpetuate the tired and tawdry brand of her own name. that speech on saturday contained so many ludicrous assertions that we just don't have time for all of them. as you expect, it's her attacks on the president that were most egregious. here's how she started.

>> remember no drama obama? if only. now it's all drama obama. we don't have leadership coming out of washington. we have reality television

.>> and i guess she should know. having sold her entire family, not for 30 pieces of silver, but for $250,000 per episode on her reality tv series called " sarah palin 's alaska."(continued)

Sadly, Rancid Prius is more likely to take advice and side with Martin Bashir (whoever that is) than he is with Gov. Palin.

Is it just me or do these people ever say what Palin says is wrong (with example) but just trash her personally instead.

No, actually it’s SNL with Tina Fey. The MSM continually put words into Palin’s mouth that she did not utter. The big one of course is Tina Fey playing Palin saying she can see Russia from her house. The MSM went with the lie. The MSM would be funny if they weren’t so pathetic.

When your definition of “morality” includes celebrating anal intercourse you pretty much have no idea what “morality” is.

I think she’s great. She sounds a little screechy sometimes but that’s no big deal.

Ever notice they almost never give her title as suggested by common usage (governor) and instead call her “Sarah”, “Ms. Palin”, “Miss Palin” or “Mrs. Palin” when they write about her? Do that to one of their politicos and see what happens.

Governor Palin said Obama is a Liar.

What part of that is wrong?

Sarah is much more sympathetic to Obama than I am.

Some of the thing I feel about that imposter cannot be printed. What does anyone expect a brain dead journalist from MSNBC to have to say, except to bad mouth Palin.

They are fascinated by her, aren’t they? Without the least indication that she has any desire to run for office again. Any office.

#1 Who is this idiot “Martin Bashir”

#2 Why does anybody care what this nobody thinks?

#3 Why do people keep posting these kinds of headlines without the customary “barf alert”?

A) He’s some random Muslim they gave a show on PMSDNC.

B) If you subscribe to the “wisdom” proferred at Daily Kos, CNN, HuffPo and that type of place, you might care what he thinks.

C) The source of the article is its own warning.

It isn't you and you are not wrong. Anything Palin says will be attacked by the libs. They are sooooooo totally afraid of her way of getting the message across in a non-political way, it explodes their bubble heads. The general public likes to tell it like it is in simple terms and she has an uncanny way of doing just that.

my oldest came home last year and asked me did Sarah really say thta about Russia.
I had to get the quote, show him Fey and how the elft changed her words.
He told me that a girl there he knows thought it was and so the next day he went back and told her straight to which she replied”my parents told me she siad that”

My oldest told her do your own homework , it seems you parents are not telling you the truth and maybe they either can;t be bothered to get the truth or they are lying to you

The girl dropped it and has never said a word since about politics.

Again low lazy info voters spreading lies because they hear it off a corrupt media

Yeah, some parents don’t do their homework either. It’s a shame that they don’t bother to find out factual stuff. If the MSM said that Palin said something well by golly it has to be true.

'Morally bankrupt'? Doubt Martin sees the 'vacancy' sign that flashes; whenever he assumes his faux moral authority by going here; but 'flash' it does.

When Liberals even utter the 'word' moral; it is 'almost' a joke; and for certain; it is an absolute insult to the word itself. So; Martin; give it up! Moral is not an aspect of your universe; world view; nor have you ever invited it to be.

Liberalism IS however; a moral 'arrogance'. . .only by that; does Martin and his like-minded Leftist ilk, come close.

We should take political and social advice from the Muslim idiot on CNN. Sarah is a foreigner to him because he’s not American.
