LA Times: Sarah Palin's vulgar tweets: Not funny or effective (w/Poll to FReep)
The Los Angeles Times' LA Now ^ | April 29, 2013 | Robin Abcarian

Posted on 04/29/2013 3:22:52 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin reared her head in American airspace this weekend.

As the country’s media, entertainment and political elite gathered in Washington, D.C., for the annual roast that is the White House Correspondents Dinner, Palin could not resist lobbing darts from afar.

“Yuk it up media and pols,” she tweeted. “While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.”

She panned the event again in a second tweet: “That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns thrown themselves a #nerdprom.”

Palin can take any position she wants on the wisdom of “media and pols” yukking it up on their night off. (I thought the president was pretty funny, especially his joke about not being “the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be.” Palin, who once charmed the country with her joke about hockey moms and pitbulls, now seems oblivious to the power of the self-deprecating joke.)

Still, she is not the only critic of the annual event; plenty of people think the evening is proof that Washington’s watchdogs are too cozy with its power players. (And maybe it’s only of minor interest that her own daughter, Bristol, was a dinner guest in 2011, when the economy was in far worse shape than it is now.)

But when it comes to evaluating the work habits of others, Palin has forfeited the moral high ground....

A breathless purple faced screed on Palin's 'vulgarity' followed a poll asking whether she's 'relevant'.

You can't make this stuff up.

Nothing she says constitutes “vulgar” in my opinion.
There’s no vulgar language. There’s no vulgar concepts.

I used to read the LA Times daily without fail.

Now I only read them if someone at FR decides to post an excerpt.

The only thing “vulgar” here is the fact that this unknown clown and proven airhead, Robin Abcarian, can get published in a newspaper.

Now THAT’S vulgar and obscene.

I think they’re taking issue with the term ‘assclown’. I thought it fit just right. I suspect that was the real crime here.

It was nothing, really:

“Yuk it up media and pols,”

“While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.”

“That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns thrown themselves a #nerdprom.”

I hear katty meows. And, I did not take the strapping socialist Muslim joke as a joke. I think Shakespeare had it right. Many a truth is spoken in jest. I thought it was another example of Obama’s spectacular tin ear; like saying God bless you to Planned Parenthood. Amazing.

Please, please, conservatives who will sit out the election if your conservative candidate doesn’t get elected; save us. A president Dole, McCain or Romney would at least be American and possibly patriotic. At least they wouldn’t demand a military ROI of “compassionate” risk taking.

Vulgar??? Does the mainstream media no longer possess a communal dictionary?

"Vulgar" defines this administration start to finish. "Vulgar" defines anyone who voted for, supports, or defends this administration (or 99% of the US Senate).

Robin Abcarian- you aren’t higher enough to shine Sarah’s shoes. I see you smiling and following Sarah back then - she still lives in your head and I understand why, ‘wannabe’.

such parties are all fine and well...

until you start jacking up taxes while devaluing the money people make and loading up debt. at that point, you’re just piling on

Sarah, as usually, is right on the mark

She doesn’t strike me as the type to use any kind of profanity at all in Tweets. I’m thinking someone hacked her Twitter, with the plan to make believable Tweets.

Good point, Sarah. We know which side the Slimes' bread is buttered, so don't hold your breath about the release of the Khalidi tape. It's obviously going to be embarrassing to the Anointed One when and if it's released. A lot more embarrassing than this weak article is to Palin.

I think that the laSLIMES has a different definition of vulgar than most of the US.

They seem to think it means “not a member of the self appointed elite”.

Hard to say.

“The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns thrown themselves a #nerdprom.”

That would probably qualify as "vulgar" for a lot of older Americans. Just because you like her doesn't mean your mom or dad or English teacher would have approved.

The L. A. Times has not volunteered any chastisement to Letterman's slander of Willow Palin.

Nobody believes Conservatives ever sat out any election, but there are always about 90 million American adults who never vote in any election.

The last couple of Presidential campaigns demonstrated that the Republican candidates are fully capable of ignoring the power of voter registration drives to ferret out new Republican voters.

McCain and his little friend Romney did it to themselves!

They had to pay and pay and pay and then they had to pay their lawyers ~ they have lots of lawyers. The advertising thing was a humdinger for them ~ not as easy to get out of as paying postage ~ which they had to pay.

But the instituion as a whole was damaged. Still, the fact every bill collector on the planet knew the LA Times crowd were crooks probably helped the company make it through the Great Obama Recession (so far).

The Tribune Inc crowd wasn't as lucky. They did the same thing; got a well deserved reputation as thieves, and then some of their flagship operations went bankrupt.

The misrepresentation of ABC/BPA data was fairly widespread but I don't recall Conrad Black having gotten caught up in it. He was probably on his way to jail anyway ~

I didn’t hear Palin’s comment mentioned on talk radio today, but I might have missed it. Is this too vulgar for talk radio? I figured Rush would go nuts with this.
