Sarah Palin's secret "laugh track" machine at Jay Leno show: makes Adam Lambert fans like her, too!
New Palin scandal: Leno might have piped in some laughter for her jokes ^ | March 6, 2010 | RonDog (and FRiends)

Posted on 03/06/2010 4:49:52 AM PST by RonDog

Sarah Palin's secret "laugh track" machine at Jay Leno show:
makes Adam Lambert fans like her, too!

(An "after action" report from FReepers who were actually in the studio audience.)
In perhaps the worst possible development for the radical left since the discovery of Karl Rove's now infamous "Weather Machine," Governor Palin's recently exposed top secret "laugh track" machine appears to also have even more dastardly powers than were originally feared.

In addition to altering the space-time continuum, and reprogramming the master computers at NBC – to cause laughter during Sarah's monologue to appear where none had been before, and send well-intentioned jeers and "groans" from her wannabe stalkers into the abyss – this mysterious device apparently also exerts some kind of irresistible mind control powers over the loyal fans of "American Idol" megastar Adam Lambert, causing many of them to actually like the producer of the upcoming new "Alaska Valley Days" TV series, Governor Sarah Palin.

Or, at least, that's what the Kos Kids would like you to believe.

Many of those wacky ultra-left "conspiracy-mongers" who post at such online cesspools as the Daily Kos, Huffpo and DU have been foaming at the mouth all week about Sarah's "rock star" performance during for last week's taping of "Day Two" of Jay Leno's return to the traditional 11:35 pm time slot for the "Tonight Show."

Since I was actually in the studio audience last week when Governor Palin made her "comedy debut" – with a small band of "Palin palm print"-bearing FReepers (and FRiends) who had crashed the party with the intention of acting as "Ed McMahon" to Sarah's "Johnny Carson" – I call BS on their widely-reported, but easily-debunked, "laugh track" conspiracy theory.

In my not so humble opinion, however, the REAL "back story" behind last week's studio audience, which has naturally NOT been covered in the "State-Controlled Media" – was that a huge percentage of that relatively "pro-Palin" audience last week were "glamberts"– that is, hard core fans of "American Idol" singer Adam Lambert, whom many music lovers view as a contemporary reincarnation of Elvis. (Or, perhaps Liberace.)

In this thread, which will serve as the "after action" report for our recent Leno FReep, I intend to explore this strange – and very unexpected (to me) twist – on the controversial "big tent" philosophy of the new Republican party. And that strange new twist is, many Adam Lambert fans support Sarah Palin!

I am particularly interested in hearing on this thread from ADAM LAMBERT FANS who support Sarah Palin, but I would also like to hear from CONSERVATIVES who may have reservations about welcoming this new group of Palin supporters, many of whom have been NOT previously been engaged (or informed) in the political arena.

Personally, I like the concept of "My tent, my rules."

That is, we welcome the electoral support of just about ANYBODY – but only on OUR terms. I believe that the conservative political movement should be like America itself: everyone is welcome here – IF you agree to certain fundamental, non-negotiable principles.

Please post YOUR comments and opinions about Sarah Palin and the "glamberts" here.

Thank you,
RonDog

Let's get THAT PART of this thread out of the way right from the start.

I can provide MANY facts to confirm what I already know, from having been there LIVE.

But, here is a very good analysis of why this whole story is so LAME, from a guy who just watched it on TV, as posted on hotair.com:

Just re-watched the Palin appearance on Leno’s show. Either D-bag Stinson is a liar, or Jay and Sarah are incredibly talented.

During the interview, it is clear that each of them pause for the applause to die down before continuing to speak. At one point, they each raise their voices to talk above the applause. If that was canned applause, then they are amazing in their ability to pause at the just the right moment knowing that the sound would be edited in later.

Same thing during Palin’s monologue. She must be a pro to know to pause long enough after each joke to allow space for the canned applause to be inserted. She is also a trooper. She kept smiling and plowing ahead as if the audience really liked her jokes instead showing that she was bombing like D-bag Stinson claims.

All in all, there may have been some laughter added over the top of her jokes, but only to enhance the audience’s reaction not fill it in completely. I am sure this is not the first time this has happened on a talk show.

Conclusion: D-bag Stinson is a liar.

Next week we turn the clocks back and thus we have an extra hour of Sarah Palin in daylight hours. This will be essential in collecting video footage for the summer months ahead.

And, for those of you who (like me) were not aware of Adam Lambert until he appeared on the "Tonight Show" last week on the same night as Governor Palin's interview/monologue with Jay Leno, here are some screen captures of that appearance, from adamlamberttv.blogspot.com:

Lambert gives me the creeps. But I’ve found a solution—don’t watch.

As for Palin, she can & should do her thing, but trying to compete against Obama for the pop culture vote is probably not a good strategy, assuming that she actually does have further political aspirations, which I question.

I think Obamas “pop culture” vote will die off when 3 million college students graduate this year and can’t find a job. Similar to what happened to Carter.

As alienating as his looks are, I’ve learned to not necessarily go by the “weirdness” factor in determining folks’ political leanings. You look at Alice Cooper, Dave Mustaine, Sunset Nation, and Stuck Mojo (whose “Crooked Figurehead” is a scathing personal indictment of Bill Clinton) and wonder if bands have finally figured out that the only way they can truly be successful is under capitalism. Personally, I think the periphery of social culture is what the left misses when they consider their utopia of neo-communism. They focus on the Workers. Well, when everyone is a Worker, there are no musicians outside of what the very few Tsarist party members wants to hear. There are no artists outside of that sphere. There are no entertainers outside of that sphere. There are no car companies, no iPod makers, no coffee shops, no poetry readings, and any other marginal entertainment outside of the Tsarist Circle. And most importantly, no entrepeneurs at all!

As I posted on onyx's Palin/Leno LIVE thread, also from adamlamberttv.blogspot.com:
...The majority of the audience were there for Adam.

We had a few Palin people behind us but they were clearly in the minority. The audience was very polite even though many of us are not Palin supporters.

-- snip --

Why can't Adam and Palin fans be in the same person? I am.

-- snip --

I'm a Palin AND Adam supporter. There's a lot of us. A LOT of Palin supporters are Independents.....fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

-- snip --

I love Adam, and I don't dislike Palin.

I think there is room in the world for all of them. I'm glad there was such a diverse group on his show and that Leno showed respect to ALL of them.

-- snip --

Another Adam and Palin supporter here, who normally doesn't feel the need to respond to small-minded stereotyping of "Middle-America".

Freaks are now “idols.”

Freaks have always been idols. Elvis was a freak. The Beatles were freaks (in terms of their music,) Led Zeppelin were freaks, just about every metal band from the 1980s were cross-dressing freaks (in Dee Snyder's case, quite literally.) History is a circle, and looking at the other side and saying "that's not natural" is a little short-sighted.

LOL!
Fortunately, "ignorance is one-hundred percent curable."
To the unknown keyword adder:
This is the "after action" report of an major recent L.A. chapter FReep during which we helped to support a conservative leader whom many think will be the next President of the United States, as she appeared on a national broadcast seen by almost SIX MILLION people -- not to mention all of the millions of OTHER people who saw (or heard about) this event afterwards, online and in the State-Controlled Media.

And, as it happens, this fact also put members of this forum in the unique position of being able to defend Governor Palin as EYEWITNESSES -- inside the studio audience of the "Tonight Show" during an alleged scandal which was manufactured to attack her.

Looking at young men who are openly homosexual and announcing it to children who are watching them on television and who are supposedly idolizing them, is far worse than short-sighted.

It is denying the cycle of decadence that is destroying us from within by subverting our cultural heritage.

To consider today’s freaks no different than yesterday’s is to commit the intellectual crime of moral relativism.

What you need to do, in order not to be blinded by each tree in the forest, is to have a higher benchmark against which you compare where we are today.

When you do so, you’ll find out that we are in a cesspool. And we are in that swill purely because people like you keep saying, “Every generation thinks things are getting worse. Ergo, they are not, it is only a matter of perception.”

Again, seek a higher, stable benchmark and compare. Look at the stats that indicate where our culture is today (high teen pregnancy, high teen abortion, high teen drug usage, high teen suicide, high teen homosexuality) and I don’t think anyone who is reasonable and objective will say that we are better off today that fame-whores like Adam Lambert use their fame to push an ulterior agenda that is causing great harm.

Agreed. I'm just dismayed to see Sarah being tied in so closely now to show biz, pop culture and tabloid sensationalism....and she's brought it on herself.

Although we share the same philosophy, I'm afraid I'm losing interest in her as presidential timber, especially after her endorsement and campaigning for McManiac.

She's making so many questionable choices, I truly believe she's not going to run for higher office again, and I wouldn't blame her, frankly. I'm just not hitching my star exclusively to her anymore......she isn't turning out to be a Margaret Thatcher inspiration-type, at least to me.

Pity. Too bad she's being mentioned in the same breath as Adam Lambert.

In today's world, this is how you break-through the media's lock on your image.

Besides, Reagan was part of pop culture, coming out of Hollywood. He knew how to use that for his advantage.

Reagan had decades of speeches under his belt, but the media tried to portray him as a fool from select movies he did. So Reagan took the message directly to the people.....that is what Palin is doing -- eliminating the filter.

What cultural heritage would that be? Puritan? Gold Rush era capitalism (which for the record is where I'd like to go back to in a perfect world.) Pre-WW2 isolationism? Post WW2 nuclear family? Drug sex and hippes of the 60s? Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll of the 70s? Drugs and decadence of the 80s? You pick a time, I guarantee you that drugs were a problem. Homosexuality was a problem. Teenage pregnancy wasn't that much of an issue; that's a Modern Moral Highground for folks to stand on. 14 year olds not too long ago were marrying age. Trust me, I see the forest. Trees don't blind me. So go ahead and let me know that I can't pick and choose where I can and can't look back in time and see how modern issues existed back when.

Mallard T. Drake on March 5, 2010 at 10:10 PM

This is the only part of Mallard's insightful post on HotAir.com that I need to respectfully disagree with.

Here is a private reply that I sent to some Palin supporters who asked for MY opinion of this latest scandal:

...I don't plan to spend much time refuting the Kos Kids Konspiracies -- but OUR GROUP was probably the "laugh track" they thought they heard.

We only had a dozen or so FReepers (and FRiends) actually get in, so perhaps our support for Governor Palin did sound a little "forced" at times.

But it also may have helped that we were sitting directly under a microphone that may have made us sound louder to the TV audience at home than it would have to the bozo (sitting in another part of the studio audience) who wrote this screed.

I certainly did not hear HIS supposedly "loud" groans and sighes from where I was sitting -- in the center. Perhaps they really did have the mikes where he was sitting turned down. It sounds like where the "Rouge" people were sitting was where our friend Eric Golub was sitting. Maybe HE saw their "coloring books" -- and heard their "groans." WE certainly did not, from where we were sitting.

And OUR "Palin palm prints" didn't make it on the TV crowd shots either. The cameras were ignoring ALL of us in the audience, equally, I think.

On his side, over by the Tonight Show band, there were a lot of rather vocal Shaun White fans. Maybe that's why his mike was turned down, and did not pick up his sounds as well our mike did for our sounds -- at least for what the the audience at home was hearing. - RonDog

Some of that (now public) reply will make more sense after you read Stinson's original charges.

If you can’t see that our nation is in moral decline, what are you fighting to defend, our right to listen to thrash?

You are picking and choosing quite a strange array of time periods to point to, but the label you chose for each time period don’t point to a moral base. The closest you came was “Puritan,” and the fact that you chose that label indicates that you really don’t know much about the Puritans other than what your teachers have programmed you to think. The Puritans were actually a pretty fun bunch who didn’t mind drinking, lewdness, and having a wild time. They were “pure” in their interpretation of Biblical teaching.

It sounds like you believe the lie that Revisionist Historians have been preaching that American tradition is evil. I’d suggest “Patriot’s History of the US” and “the Politically Incorrect Guide to American History” if you’d like to read some history books that actually paint us as having a pretty good track record.

By the way, I’d go for the gold-rush era of capitalism in a heartbeat. Economically, we were far better-off under “Laisse Faire” (though there was not much that was actually hands-off about it) economics, and it was a far better banking system.

But I’d also go back to a time period to when pop culture was not so blatantly decadent. I know the Great Generation was not perfect, but I’d much rather go to a Glenn Miller concert than a Pearl Jam concert. Yes, the people had their faults and weaknesses, but we made a joint effort to shame wrongful behavior and praise virtuous behavior. When we allowed the Leftists to destroy the concept of right and wrong and of shame and praise, we allowed them to dictate the new right and wrong.
