Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's secret "laugh track" machine at Jay Leno show: makes Adam Lambert fans like her, too!
Posted on 03/06/2010 4:49:52 AM PST by RonDog
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.
Swill back over and over and over again, fall backward!
All I had to do was hear it on MSNBC and I knew it was a lie.
Cut it twice and it was still too short, eh?
Where are the palm pics?
Surprised I havn’t seen Queen or AC/DC (love ‘em both) mentioned.
OOps...ok, surprised not to see AC/DC mentioned.
The Evil Rove had other devices that were much more effective...:)
Good thing we had quite a few FReepers there in L.A. at the taping of the show. They attest to the fact that it was real applause and real laughter.
I know that my Daughter, who doesn’t consider herself “republican”, loves both Adam Lambert AND Sarah Palin.
“Supporting a hypocrite like McCain on National network television is against conservative principle.....And dont give me the its okay bullcrap.....Tired of hearing that here.....Are people here conservatives or not?....NO EXCUSES...”
Maybe you’re not a conservative. Maybe you’re shilling for a RINO. You’ve been here, what a year? We should trust you?
“She should have said NO to being on the ticket with him in 2008”
Your novice political logic would see RINOs balancing their tickets with ....drumroll....more RINOs. That would be great, let’s just shut all conservatives out of national office for purity tests.
You missed my point entirely.
Where are the palm pics?Soon. Maybe tonight/tomorrow.
And even then, they're won't be very many of them -- from THIS event. We just ran out of time. :(Setting up the "laugh track" machine, and melting the brains of the glamberts took longer than we expected -- and then they wouldn't let us take any photographs, once we were inside the NBC compound.
I am working on a NEW thread about them, potentially titled:
FReeping Sarah Palin with "palm prints."(Full disclosure: I stole that second part from the Boyz at HillBuzz.com.)
Could "Notes on the Hand" be the next "Pants on the Ground"?
I don’t think so.
Then you didn’t comprehend my original post.
Here is your entire post:
“She didn’t fall into McCains trap, she walked into a trap of her own making, and she has not one to blame but herself.
She could have avoided all this by simply realizing that if he was good enough to be President, and gave him her endorsement for that position, she might have to endorse him as being good enough to be a Senator.
She should have said NO to being on the ticket with him in 2008.
It’s her own doing, not McCains. She could have said no.”
Appears to be fully self-explanatory.
There is NOTHING like having a thread posted here in the "Breaking News" sidebar at Free Republic to get the attention of the blogosphere -- particularly when it is about a "hot" topic like this one. :o)

(I just posted this thread THIS MORNING!)
That is EXACTLY the image of Karl Rove's "Weather Machine" that I was looking for, when I posted this thread.
(I couldn't find it this morning.)
You missed the context of the post, which you didn’t include.
How about this one?
I agree completely! Not a huge Goodman fan, but some of his music was good while I was swing dancing and Lindy Hopping.
I love Vaughn Monroe as well as Harry James and the Dorseys, Artie Shaw, and, yes, Tex did a great job taking over the band after Miller’s passing. I have several of the old-fashioned, change-the-steel-needle, hand-crank phonograph player and several hundred 78s. It’s great to listen to them.
Have you ever seen the move Orchestra Wives? It stars the GM orchestra, with Tex and the Modernaires singing. Not a great movie, but just wonderful to see them all together.
“That boy ain’t right.”
Good thing we had quite a few FReepers there in L.A. at the taping of the show.Thanks, Palladin!
FWIW, though, we've "raised the bar" so much around here in the last few years, so that we no longer consider "a dozen or so" to be "quite a few." :o)
I could tell you how many FReepers that we INTENDED to have at this event, but then I'd have to kill you. :o)The glamberts really SKUNKED us at getting supporters into this studio audience. And the Shaun White fans were close behind.
I estimate that the breakdown of the roughly 300-seat studio went something like this:
hard core glamberts = 100
Shaun White fans = 75
Jay Leno fans = 75
everybody else = 50 -- of which WE were only about a dozen
Yeah, I found that one -- but Karl's head looked a little off.
(It still works, though!)
Romney is unacceptable. He made socialized medicine into law in Massachusetts. An alternative to Palin, Romney, Huckabee, and Pawlenty would be Mitch Daniels, Gov. of IN.
The after action report!!!!
I love it! Definitely worth the wait.
You guys were “grate” and then some!!!
And Sarah ROCKED!
SIX MILLION and countless others since her appearance!!!!

A NEW THREAD! I can hardly contain my excitement.
LOL. Yes, “Notes on the Hand” *can be* the next “Pants on the Ground” !!!
She looks hot ...... an sweaty !
Squantos likes !
I don’t think I’d term it unbiased, but I didn’t have to stretch the truth either. LOL
Hey, I think I missed one of your posts to me a couple of days ago.
It wasn’t intentional. I was using my phone and didn’t see it until a day or so later.
Not unbiased? Well, I thought your comments were fair. I noted that you said you were seated in the middle and looked both ways. I don’t recall posting to you recently, other than just now. I wish I had been able to attend the taping with you all. Next time!!!!
If Lambert fans like Sarah and vote for her — there’s nothing wrong with that. But if a Lambert/Sarah fan wants to run for political office or party committee, then and only then should the tent close if thresholds aren’t met.
“... not to be confused with Fall forwards, Spring back :)”
Thank you. I now figured out why I am always late!!!
I didn’t know that
What is his wife’s name?
“Never thought Id see another Reagan in my lifetime, but whether she runs or not, shell be a force for conservative values and an advocate for the silent majority in flyover country.”
BINGO! You nailed my views on Palin 100%. She’s out there discrediting the “trailer trash” image the leftists and media created. She knows she drives the left mentally insane. She knows she draws huge crowds and motivates people. She uses that star power and delivers a fantastic message. If she knows she has no chance to win in 2012, she will support someone who will win that shares her political views.
Unlike our Narcissist in Chief, she is humbled by this star power, not fueled by it. The left invested a lot of hate in her this past year. The more she appears on these “cesspool” shows, the more it discredits the left’s stupid lies about her. Sure, it may make her seem less presidential, but I do not the Presidency is her goal for 2012.
I think her goal for 2012 is to use her talents to get America back on the right track (pun intended) and help put an end to the liberal lunacy running rampant in Washington. Again, the Democrats made her public enemy #1. Obama campaigned against HER ... not McCain ... for the most part. They burned up a lot of their “hate capital” on her. Should the Republicans come to their senses and run someone conservative in 2012, their sick tactics aren’t going to be nearly as effective. The right can point to the attacks on Sarah Palin and simply claim “Look, they did the same thing to her ... don’t you think they may be lying as usual?”
It’s almost as if Palin knew she was instantly the victim of the Saul Alinsky playbook ... she took the initial abuse, accepted it, gladly became isolated, then fought back effectively when the left made her one of the faces of Conservatism. If she simply remains a strong, powerful voice for Conservatism, we win, and the left loses a ton of credibility with the Independents. Moreover, she’s very young. She’ll have plenty of opportunities to run for President. It’s not like her political career hinges on 2012 unlike the Marxist’s in the White House.
Just my (rambling) thoughts :-)!

Palin parody writer: NBC added laughs to Leno visitSince the folks at WaPo conveniently did not think to contact "other people" who were IN THE SAME STUDIO AUDIENCE as this bozo, I have posted the following comment to their online article:A Maryland man who wrote a parody of Sarah Palin's autobiography and who says he and his wife flew to Los Angeles to attend the taping of Palin's appearance on NBC's "The Tonight Show" claims NBC sweetened the audience's laughter during her appearance to drown out the deafening silence, which he says was on occasion only broken by his own derisive guffawing.-- end of excerpt --
Responding to Micheal Stinson's claims on the political Web site Daily Kos, NBC said Friday that "neither the audio nor the laughs were enhanced for Sarah Palin's segments on 'The Tonight Show' " this past Tuesday.
And other people we contacted who work in the industry said even if "Tonight" show did sweeten the laughter, or used "patches" of laughter from that audience to cover dead air or to smooth over edits in the show, it's not an unusual practice. Some shows do it, some don't, they said, explaining that the techniques used can be as simple as being sure to seat big laughers near microphones, to compensate for the non-laughers in the hall....
I was also in the studio audience for that taping -- and can state categorically that the Palin-stalker who manufactured this "laugh track conspiracy" is DEAD WRONG!
Stinson's entire case is based on the difference between what he remembers hearing AROUND HIM (in the studio audience) -- and what he later heard in the complete soundtrack BROADCAST (to the audience at home).
Assuming that his memory is better than his objectivity, this difference COULD be true -- but is IRRELEVANT to his claim that NBC "doctored" the sound to make Governor Palin look good.
As he ought to know, the complete audio feed broadcast to the audience at home came from MANY microphones placed throughout the studio.
What Stinson may have heard around him was not necessarily picked up by the microphones around him.
And, vice versa. He may not have heard everything that was happening in OTHER parts of the (rather large) studio audience.
Stinson claims that he remembers hearing "many portions where there was little or no laughter or response, but at the later broadcast they are smoothed over with applause and laughter that WERE NOT THERE at the taping."
And he says that the "Groans, hoots, grumbling, or just dead silence" that he DID hear are all missing from the broadcast version.
He was apparently sitting on the far left side (naturally!) of the studio, over by the house band.
I was sitting almost dead center, uncharacteristically for a "right winger" like me. (At least I will ADMIT my bias!)
Personally, remember hearing virtually ALL of laughter and cheers that were in the final broadcast version of Governor Palin's interview and monologue.
Maybe that's because I was surrounded by Palin supporters. Maybe not.
But, I personally heard NONE of Stinson's alleged "groans and grumblings" in opposition to her appearance.
And, from where I was sitting, I also did not personally seeing him dancing around with his cartoon books.
It MAY have happened. I just did not see it myself -- and I was there.
Occam's razor applies here: "When you see hoof prints think HORSES -- not ZEBRAS."
That is, the simplest answer that fits all the facts is generally the best. :o)
And the SIMPLEST answer here is that the anti-Palin jeers were outnumbered by the pro-Palin cheers -- and the COMPLETE audio feed, from the ENTIRE studio audience, reflects that reality.
No sinister conspiracy theories are required.
NEXT time, Mr. Stinson, if you want to be sure that the sounds from your side make it into the final audio broadcast, BRING MORE DISRUPTORS.
And, NEXT time, Washington Post -- please at least TRY to find more than one (clearly biased) source before running this kind of easily-refuted trash.

Ron Smith (aka "RonDog" on FreeRepublic.com)
For all his flaws, Adam is basically a nice Jewish boy from a terrific family in my hometown. As a very young man adjusting to overnight superstardom, it's guaranteed he'll have some missteps. But, underneath it all, I can tell you he was raised well and has always been respectful and well-mannered in my experience.
Here he is singing a lovely a capella version of the National Anthem in a private performance for the troops at Miramar in San Diego: A lovely a capella version that the troops appreciated immensely
And here he is singing "The Prayer" with Noa Dori at a memorial tribute for Yitzhak Rabin in Los Angeles: The Prayer
That you got to see both Adam and Sarah in the same night, while also conducting a FReep, is like hitting the trifecta. Color me jealous!
I do not know but Hume talked about it before he retired.
No he isn't. You should have seen that nasty display of his at the Grammy's. I saw some clips from a thread that was posted here.
That’s great RonDog, thanks for the update!
I continue to be surprised by HOW MANY of my conservative FRiends like him!
See you at our "next" event...
A little birdie told me that ANN COULTER will be in SoCal later this month.
Are YOU going to Searchlight?
Yes I am, how about you?
I’m going on the whole TPXIII tour. I haven’t missed any with either MAF, Our Country, or TPX!
