Sarah Palin nominated for Razzie
politico ^ | Feb. 26, 2012 | DAVID COHEN

Posted on 02/26/2012 3:15:30 PM PST by Mozilla

The former vice presidential candidate was nominated Saturday for a Golden Raspberry Award as worst actress for her “performance” in the documentary “The Undefeated,” a film about her political career.

The tongue-in-cheek Razzies, which purport to salute the worst in the world of movies each year, typically are presented the day before the Academy Awards but their schedule was shifted this year - the nominees were released Saturday and the winners (or losers, depending on how you look at it) are to be announced April 1.

Alaska’s former governor, if she were to give this any thought at all, could take some comfort in being in good company; among her fellow nominees this year are such noted performers as Al Pacino (a supporting actor nod for “Jack and Jill”) and Nicolas Cage (worst actor for “Drive Angry”).

Palin’s fellow nominees in the worst actress category are Kristen Stewart (“Breaking Dawn”), Sarah Jessica Parker (both “New Year’s Eve” and “I Don’t Know How She Does It”) and two men performing in drag, Martin Lawrence (“Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son”) and Adam Sandler, whose nomination for “Jack and Jill,” was one of a record 11 he received Saturday in various Razzie categories.

Really,,,,this silly, sophomoric “award” is an important thing to the mindless Left. You’d think they’d be embarrassed picking on Sarah Palin at a time when their icon, JFK, was again revealed as a disgusting piece of filth that never should have been elected to the presidency of this nation. Their runner-up hero is the cheating liar, Bill Clinton.

Democrats have no integrity, so they ridicule those who expose their own infantile fecklessness. One can evaluate the character of a person by the enemies he has.

I am sure she is hoping to stay Undefeated, so she has to win this.

Ridicule of political "enemies".

It's the Alinsky way; and in this case, practiced by icky show people, most of whom are Obama's willing and obedient servants

meanwhile, they give an Oscar to the wooden Al Gore. Does anyone outside of leftists care about Oscars anymore?

Yes it is the leftists way to attack Palin’s character, but it only makes her more powerful. Hollywood is controlled by people who have nothing in common with the majority of people in the country.

What liberals hate about Sarah Palin more then anything is not her political views, its the fact that she is HAPPY..Have you ever met a happy liberal, I haven’t. They are miserable, and they can’t stand the fact that Sarah is a happily married woman with a wonderful family who loves her very much. Libs just can’t stand it. They hate Conservatism but they hate seeing a happy Conservative woman even more

And the fact that she’s really, really good looking also makes the leftists hate her, especially the women.

She was being herself, not pretending to be something else. That is a strange concept to the left.

I’m kind of lost, why nominate Mrs.Palin?
Shouldn’t they have nominated the woman who
played her in the movie? Of course that
would make too much sense.

All you have to do to corrupt the press is to get a 4in1 printer at Staples for fifty bucks, buy a couple books of stamps, get another e-mail address, then set up an event with enough booze and fat food to satisfy their cravings for 24-hours, and you get something in the paper about like this report. They have to go, they can’t survive in the manner they would prefer through honest effort. Small town folks, don’t you all have a couple folks who have come back home for rehab or residential care whose resumes list important publications, but whose brains are fried. They are the ones who consistently bring up the most vacuous liberal socialist talking points, most discredited years ago, and get a few passes because they came from “good families” and got an education at a prestigious institution where they never learned s#!t from Shinola.

Alinsky says that "ridicule is our strongest weapon," but he is so far WRONG, I don't even know where to start. The strongest weapon we have is TRUTH. Pure and simple.

That would be cool if she gave an acceptance speech. Usually they go over very well for the accepter. I think Sandra Bullock gave an acceptance speech for both her Oscar and Razzie in the same weekend.

The real reason they hate Palin is because she is a conservative who has the charisma and power to convert more people into conservatives. That’s in large part because she’s a woman. It’s vitally important to the left that they retain a monopoly on every demographic group who aren’t white heterosexual males. The key to them retaining power is identity politics and using fearmongering against white heterosexual males to convert everyone else over to their side. When someone threatens to undermine the meme that all women and non-whites would be stupid not to be Democrats, that person has to be destroyed.

Did she write, produce, direct or star in the movie? If not, why is she being nominated?

The Razzies are run privately by an ad copyrighter. It’s a totally unofficial gag award that Hollywood doesn’t control.

Yes she does, doesn't she?

LOL, she also still seems to rattle the cage of certain posters at FreeRepublic!

They appear like clockwork on every posted Palin article, barking and salivating like Pavlov's dogs. Apparently trained to respond to just a mention of her name in the title.

Conservatives need to detach themselves from the nozzle of Hollywicked as they are pumping raw sewage into our and our families’ hearts and minds. They deserve our contempt and abandonment, not our support!

Yes, I understand that, but if she didn’t star in, write, produce or direct the film how can she be nominated for worst performance, IIRC Adam Sandler is up for multiple awards because he starred in and produced a couple of films. My understanding is they used clips of her, she wasn’t actually on site filming her appearances. As you can see I don’t watch the oscars or anything else related to hollywood be it emmys, tonys, oscars, or razzies!

What Alinsky said was that "ridicule is man's most potent weapon" - after having dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Understood in that sense, ridicule is an ineffective tool against either falsehood or evil: one cannot tear down that which already stands low. Instead, mockery is employed to effect only against truth and virtue, in the service of reducing them, and for the benefit of those of lesser merit who wish to rise above them.

Bingo!

When Natalie Wood was young, she was voted Worst Actress by - if I remember correctly - the Harvard Hasty Pudding Club. Natalie went and received it to cheers and applause. When Sarah has met her enemies - Bob Beckel and Alec Baldwin are examples - they ended up being charmed by her.

About the last 5 I watched, which is over the last couple of years, that I rented thinking because they were PG or sounded fairly decent that I would not be polluted watching them. The one thing they all seem to have in common was that they made sure people/a person at least, took the LORD's Name in vain. I really cannot tolerate that and usually just into the of the movie had to pull it out.

Right now I don't remember their names as it been a long time since I watched movies, other than a few put out by a Church, such as Courage. Since I ended up pulling them out so soon into them I have generally forgotten them. Also, come to think of it, I watched Blind Sided, which was a good movie from what I remember.

Many movies are actually propaganda, drawing us in with that which seems fairly good, but underneath they are vehicles of liberal propaganda, such as highly promoting the liberal "green movement". I don't think we need that either nor should support it.

I guess it depends on how fussy one is or discerning. When people watch many movies they probably become somewhat immune to much of the garbage in them.

If you ever run into a movie that isn't liberal propaganda, without fornication, adultery and/or homosexuality being championed as normal and good and without The LORD's Name taken in vain, being used lightly merely as an expression of speech or as a curse word and that movie is entertaining and enlightening please let me know. I like to watch a good movie every so often.

A drama is bound to have someone who isn’t very admirable and behaves as such. You may like The Artist, the film which won the Best Picture Oscar last night, it’s a fun show and a throwback.
