Skip to comments.LA Times: Sarah Palin's vulgar tweets: Not funny or effective (w/Poll to FReep)
Posted on 04/29/2013 3:22:52 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin reared her head in American airspace this weekend.
As the countrys 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 Washingtons watchdogs are too cozy with its power players. (And maybe its 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....

Whatta buncha fairies.
Gee, wonder which side the LA Slimes will take?
Pray for America to Wake Up
Okay, I’ll bite. What “vulgar” thing was she supposed to have tweeted.
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.
...she tells the truth
Is the LA Slimes EVER going to release that Rashid Khalidi tape or am I going to have to wait til I live to be 100 to ever see it
I used to read the LA Times daily without fail.
Now I only read them if someone at FR decides to post an excerpt.
In the mean time she worships the ground that the vulgar Clintons walk on.
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.
I wonder if the Times called David Letterman ‘vulgar’ when he joked about Sarah Palen’s daughter being raped by Alex Rodriquez in Yankee Stadium.
Either that or she crawls along on her knee pads in front of Slick Willie.
Since when did the L.A. Times ever believe Sarah Palin held “the moral high ground”?
Fourth paragraph above.
Don’t forget to take the poll! Is she still relevant?
Yes 21% No 79%
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.
I say I love her and agree with her 85%
"Vulgar" defines this administration start to finish. "Vulgar" defines anyone who voted for, supports, or defends this administration (or 99% of the US Senate).
She’s so irrelevant the LA Times keeps writing about her.
Media - “How DARE you insult our incestuous relationship with the regime. Who are you little people to accuse us, the guardians of truth, of being pawns for the president?”
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
All of a sudden pro baby killers and pro same sex marriage - are so pure they see vulgar where it isn’t.
Sarah Palin hasn’t golfed as much as Obama and the leftwing L.A. times are making an issue of her work habits.
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”.
Im more interested to find out if the LA Times is still relevant..oh and I have another question for the Slimes..if Sarah Palin is SO irrelevant as they say..how come they are talking about her tweet..I mean after all, if she is so irrelevant who the hell cares what she tweets about right..yet they have a poll question about her asking if she is irrelevant..LOL..somewhere Sarah Palin is having a good laugh at the ass clowns at the LA Slimes
Love it.....if there is a poll in a major media outlet to see if you’re relevant, you’re clearly relevant .
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.
“Vulger” is what spews from the bottom-feeding parasites that worship Obama and other anti-American leftists.
It has been said many times by better men than I: Sarah Palin lives rent free in their heads 24/7!
Larcenous buncha' batardes!
If she wasn’t relevant, why would they spend so much time attacking her?
Sarah Palin is a private citizen and can say what she wants.
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!
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
She’s not relevant. That’s why they published an entire article in response to her tweet.
What a bunch of slimy crooks. Did they get any kind of penalty, or just have their hands slapped?
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 ~
Oh, the irony of libs.
Vulgar? Then what exactly were those ‘Sarah Palin is a c***’ t-shirts making the rounds a while back?
C'mon freepers, get a move on.....
I think not.
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.
