'She's becoming Al Sharpton, Alaska edition' (Latest Politico Hit Piece on Palin)
Politico ^ | 03/14/11 | JON FB, MARTIN & F. JOHN HARRIS

Posted on 03/14/2011 3:32:45 AM PDT by nhwingut

Sarah Palin has played the sexism card, accusing critics of chauvinism against a strong woman.

She has played the class card, dismissing the Bush family as “blue bloods,” and complaining that she is the target of snobbery by people who dislike her simply because she is “not so hoity-toity.”

Most famously, she has played the victim card—never more vividly than when she invoked the loaded phrase “blood libel” against liberals and media commentators in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.

Does the Politico know anything at all about Sharpton? I mean seriously.

This is a great way to absolutely destroy your credibility.

Way to go Politico.

Can’t wait for the Monday afternoon squirrel report, and the best place to find badger tracks.

We’re left today with two Sarah Palins: the one the media portrays and the real one. They bear no resemblance to each other.

Articles of faith in the Liberal religion:

Sarah Palin is stupid and racist
Evolution rules

Government solves all

Really? I missed the part where she got her people to burn down somebody’s business. Or where she helped just completely make up rape accusations against cops.

I mean, that’s just absurd.

This is just insane. Al Sharpton has made a living on being a radical racist.

There is no likeness whatsoever.

Sarah Palin was ELECTED as mayor and governor and has been a voice of reason.

If the media spent half the time they’ve taken to bash Palin/Bachmann to report on Zero’s past affiliations with ACORN, Soros, etc. he would have never been elected President.

Took not one ass to write this story,....but two! You can probably figure out what FB was doing while the other jerk-off typed!

Wait a minute, it took three of these brain-dead sphinctoids to come up with this breathless, useless re-hash of a dozen or so hackneyed Anti-Palin clichés?

Is there a more navel-gazing, man-tit drooling, no-life having pack of unoriginal, bottom feeding, scraping of the barrel human scum than every dense illogical twit populating the PDS crowd?

I think not. Therefore, there is not. Sine qua non.

I call him FatBoy, FB. :)

I email this turd quite often. He actually tries to defend Politco as down the middle.

Yesterday I gave him a rundown of the front page's stories: 2 Hit Pieces on Bachmann's gaffe. 0 critical pieces on Zero (depsite $4 gas, Lybia, Japan, unemployment). 3 Puff pieces on what a jokester the Kenyan was at the grid dinner.

He says, "that's one day." Then today, this very same libtard posts a hit piece on Palin. You can make this stuff up.

Politico (Arm of Obama and Romney) is desperate.

CONCLUSION:
Politico is again a racist, faux news, polluting organization.

“And The Most Irresponsible Journalist Award Goes to The Politico’s Jonathan Martin!
So tell me, how do you write a “news” story about an organization paying for a speaker when you don’t even know if the organization is paying for the speaker?
Ask “journalist” Jonathan Martin. He knows all about it.
You see, Jonny wrote a piss poor story the other day about how the Iowa Family Policy Center will be paying a large speaker fee if Sarah Palin comes to Iowa to keynote the IFPC’s fall funderaiser.
The only problem is that Jonny has no sources confirming that any exorbitant fee is being charged or paid.
Jonny also got some inside info from David Kochel, who was a top aide to former (and future) presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
Hey Dave, didn’t I just read a story about how Mitt Romney tried to buy off the Iowa Christian Alliance?
I heard you helped facilitate that little scheme. And somehow you are shocked at the thought of a well-known political figure (who very likely isn’t running for president) getting paid a speaker’s fee for (gasp) a public speaking appearance? ..
and then we’ve got Tim Albrecht quoted. He was the Iowa spokesman for Romney’s 2008 caucus campaign.”
And it always seemed like, whenever the Romney people had rumors they wanted to start about other candidates,
Jonny was their go-to guy to get those rumors in writing in front of a national audience.


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


Who benefits most from Sanford meltdown? Californian (that's right) Mitt Romney


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

We’re left today with two Sarah Palins: the one the media portrays and the real one. They bear no resemblance to each other.

That's why I pretty much discount any of the current polling data. Those polls reflect the public's general impression of the media caricature more so than the real Sarah Palin.

Should she choose to run, her real competition won't be the other candidates, it will be to see if the truth can smash through the media construction. The caricature is so far off from reality, I don't see how it can possibly stand.

Leftists: “Sarah Palin is so over, even saying that’s she’s over is over! Really! She doesn’t exist! Republicans... the 142 that still even remember who she is, that is... need to wake up and find an electable candidate! She’s a fool! A complete idiot! EVERYONE knows that! Newt and Mitt, now... they’re serious threats!”

Blah, blah, blah.

It never stops.

My only question is... are they deluded, or are they attempting to delude Republicans?

The only commonality is Politico’s equal disdain for Al Sharpton’s people and Sarah Palin’s people which is to say that they disdain all people who are not members of that little psuedo-intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol that think they can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

for that reason alone I would vote for her, even though I already know she has bigger ball than any of the other GOP crop of ‘candidates’

The tactic is to tell a lie enough times so that it becomes the truth in the weak minded. So can see it happening right on this forum sometimes. Sad.
