MSNBC Fill-in Host Donny Deutsch: Palin 'First Woman in Power that has Sexual Appeal'
NewsBusters ^ | July 27, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 07/27/2009 2:44:55 PM PDT by Rufus2007

It's the kind of astute analysis you'd expect from MSNBC - the place for the politics. CNBC regular and MSNBC fill-in anchor Donny Deutsch solved the mystery behind the media's fascination with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

According to the former advertising executive, it has nothing to do with her stance on several hot-button issues - an advocate of gun rights, a pro-life stance on abortion, pro-exploration and drilling for oil and concerned about the fiscal policies of President Barack Obama. Instead, he contended, it is her sexual appeal that held the media's attention - and not just from a male perspective, but a female perspective as well.

If someone had said that about any number of liberal females on the left - assuming they had sexual appeal - Deutsch would have been crucified...

Do these people have the slightest idea how shallow they are? I know, it’s a rhetorical question.

What liberals can’t take is the fact there are brains under those good looks. Clearly, recent news events have proven that the left cannot judge a person by the content of their character, but only by outward attributes (looks, skin color, etc.). If we aren’t careful, the left could set this country back 50 years or more in every way.

Well, it is true though isn’t it? The headline.

I like Lady Thatcher but....

Most of John Edwards apparel was that people thought he was nice-looking. People are shallow.

The media, yeah they focus on attractive people. They announce when (insert name of attractive actress) crosses the street.

They are like nits, pestering a nuclear attack submarine. Not very effective.

"We face challenging times with some hell-bent on tearing down our nation by perpetuating pessimism and apologizing for America. They suggest that our best days were yesterdays. But how can this pessimism exist? Proof of our greatness and pride is all around us today. We produce proud and great volunteers who sacrifice everything for their country.

"We can resist enslavement to big central government that crushes hope and opportunity. We must be wary of government largesse. It doesn’t come free and often accepting it takes away everything that is free. Melting into Washington’s powerful and caretaking arms will only lead to suck away the incentive to work hard and chart our own course. This will only contribute to an unstable economy and dizzying national debt, and it will make us less free.

"We don’t have to feel that we must beg an allowance from Washington – except to beg the allowance to be self-determined.

"See, in order to be self-sufficient (we) must be allowed to develop, to drill and build and climb to fulfill our promise! We can not start believing that government is the answer. It can’t make you happy or healthy or wealthy or wise. What can? It is the wisdom of the people and our families and our small businesses and industrious individuals. And it is God’s grace helping those who help themselves." - Sarah Palin, July 26, 2009
SARAH'S FAREWELL SPEECH AS GOVERNOR - GREAT READ

Sarah has now initiated her brilliant flanking manuever against the left, the DNC, the MSM and the RINOs that has them all in a frenzy wondering what her next move will be and how it will be perceived...and has them frothing at the mouth in their efforts to discredit her.

Sarah will now get her book out, go on tour, give speeches and promote conservatie principles all over this country in the midst of the Obama administration disaster and gain great political capital in the process. Then she will support conservative candidates in 2010 and help them win, amassing much more political capital. She will then take all of that and make an awesome, stunning run for the Presidency in 2012.

"...like that grizzly guards her cubs, as a mother naturally guards her own. I will keep that vow wherever the road may lead." -Sarah Palin, July 26, 2009

He would like to make in only about sex appeal.

However, anyone with half a brain knows her conservative philosophy and successful conservative governance of AK has liberals going daft.

Well, more daft than usual.

Since liberal women have NO sex appeal (e.g. Helen Thomas, Janet Reno, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Susan Estrich, Cindy Sheehan, the list goes on), liberals incorrectly assume that conservative women cannot either.

I was focusing on the excerpt not only the headline.

The rest of what he claims is so not true.

Yeah they notice her attractiveness, but what drives them over the edge is her conservatism and its successful demonstration in governance of Alaska.

And her popularity when people get to see and hear her for themselves.

Why is it that everything with libs have to do with sex. Wanting to have sex with her, being aroused by her. They are sick perverts. But I guess since all of the liberal women on their side look like rodents I can understand their frustration. Imagine having to wake up in the morning looking at Nancy Pelosi. Nuff said

The whole world is shallow...Even the Bible says in the End Days people will be lovers of themselves rather than GOD.

If you judge Palin’s looks, then she is brought down to a level that makes her no more relevant than any other women that is measured by her looks....

BINGO! Sexy, teabagging, etc. The sexual revolution of the 1960s defined women as sex toys. Naked and hot. But not intellectual. The Left uses women as playthings. And... they must love it because they vote for Leftist candidates in droves....

You said: Our women are good looking because they are human...

What does this mean?

Hallie Berry, Faith Hill, Monica Bellucci are beautiful liberal women....Liberal, Conservative,Democrat or Republican all have there share of physically beautiful women..So what?

When women are judged on the content of their character, maybe then women will have made a dent in society....

Personally my grandmother was poor, she was fat and did not have money to fix her teeth, yet she raised 4 Children by herself during the depression (one being my mother) and she gave her kids all the love and guidance they could want, she started her own buisness when her kids grew up, she was loved by men and women who wanted to be her friend, she was the best Grandma to her 10 grandchildren until she died and she was a woman that made a wonderful impact on everyone’s life she touched....

I only wish women today could know this kind of admiration and respect for a woman in there own life..

What liberal women hate most about Palin isn’t how intelligent she is, or how well she handles her family and career together.

It’s having to listen to their boyfriends commenting about how hot Sarah is!

The sexual revolution of the 1960s defined women as sex toys. Naked and hot..NO they didn’t...

Women defined themselves as wanting to be equal with men, they wanted to be free to have sex with whom they wanted, burning of the bras, free love....It was the 80’s that started this overly sexualized society that has spiraled out of control today....

It means beauty is based on love. Like in the Lord of the Rings. The ring made everyone ugly on the outside because it made them ugly on the inside. It brought sinful human nature to the fore, and that is ugly.

Liberalism is a religion of hate and women who feast at that banquet long enough become ugly inside and it manifests itself on the outside. Your grandmother was beautiful because she was loving and beautiful on the inside and that love was reflected on the outside, no matter how she looked physically.

Sorry, sweetie. I was there in the 1960s and the Left intentionally turned women into sex toys for the pleasure of party bosses. Women were and are toys in the communist party. It was fun and everyone went along for the ride. If you are referencing the 1980s, you missed the show. You are the result of these efforts. A few women went along for the ride in the 1960s because it was “radical.” Most were normal. By the 1980s, the task was accomplished and women were/are as easy as candy...

AGAIN:
This makes no sense...So watching the Victoria Secret Runway show, or watching Megan Fox on Transformers is not going to trigger jealousy in these liberal girlfriends when it comes to their boyfriends?

This just sounds highly immature to me....Sarah should be measured on the content of her values and her strengths, if she isn’t, then I guess she will be measured agaisnt her looks which could fail, with the next prettier or younger face that comes around...

Pelosi looks like that because she has been full of bitterness and hatred for decades.

What you are on the inside manifests it's self in the physical appearance.

Sarah Palin's outward appearance reflects her inner self: not being bitter and full of hate, but being a concerned loving person.

Pelosi's features are such that she could be a real beautiful person on the outside if she was not bitter and hateful on the inside.

So your answer is yes and no.

An utterly ridiculous "observation." I am not a Christian but have worked with Christian volunteers who, frankly, were born with very unattractive features who were miles ahead in the "soul" race to the rather good-looking liberal volunteers who brought themselves to my place of business so they'd have something to slap on their resumes.

That's one of a thousand possible examples I could give.

Based on that assertion, we should vote for/listen to only good looking people.

Why would I bother? You probably wouldn't understand the point, anyway. (See below.)

Sorry your were inundated by ugly Christians.

So I'm the one with the hang up, when my point was that these Christians I worked with were great people, great examples of their religion, whatever their appearances--contradicting the point I disagreed with--while the "attractive" people were jerks.

So which of us has the hangup about appearances?

Quite a stretch there, Darkwolf.

Oh and I haven't mentioned my religious beliefs, it was you that did that.

I never said you can't have an opinon, I just countered it.

And quite well I think.

So now “these Christians I worked with were great people, great examples of their religion, whatever their appearances.”

In your original post they were “Christian volunteers who, frankly, were born with very unattractive features...”

Try to look beyond the physical and see people for who they are, instead of your opinion of how they look.

Then people that are beautiful on the inside will not appear to you as “unattractive.”

So which of us has the hangup about appearances?

Uh, that would be you.

Strike two for you.

I never said you can't have an opinon, I just countered it. And quite well I think.

In your mind.

In your original post they were “Christian volunteers who, frankly, were born with very unattractive features...” Try to look beyond the physical and see people for who they are, instead of your opinion of how they look.

Which I did--when I praised them for their inner qualities in, oh, that same paragraph..

You're not very good at this at all, you know.

Then people that are beautiful on the inside will not appear to you as “unattractive.”

How silly. When you first see a person before you know them on any level, you have NO opinion of their outward appearance?

Strike three and you are outta there!

So which of us has the hangup about appearances? Uh, that would be you.

This from the person who can only a comment I made about appearance, and somehow didn't see (or just didn't quote) the POINT of bringing that up--which is that these folks were beautiful where it mattered.

You lose the game!
