  • On Fox Disgruntled Obama Stalker Sarah Palin Claims Impeachment Is a Bipartisan Issue (H8rade)

    PoliticusUSA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | July 8, 2014 | Sarah Jones
    On Hannity, Sarah Palin claimed to have a list of 25 impeachable offenses, and that Democrats also want to impeach President Obama. After six years of attacking President Obama in hopes of being noticed, Ms. Palin is rather disgruntled. So like all relentlessly rejected stalkers, she’s upped the ante in a desperate bid for attention. Now she wants him impeached. That will teach mean old Mr. President to ignore Sarah Palin from Alaska Arizona. On Hannity, Palin claimed that Obama is a lawless and imperial president. She said it was time for a little less talk and a lot more...

    Mediaite - CNN ^ | May 20th, 2014 | Noah Rothman
    CNN’s Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger argued on Tuesday that the “war on women” is actually tenable politics. At least, it is when Democrats are that war’s prosecutors. In a discussion regarding the uncovering of Oregon Republican U.S. Senate candidate Monica Wehby’s police records pertaining to past domestic disputes – records which were reportedly dug up by the state’s Democratic Party — Borger said that the Beaver State’s Democrats were merely playing smart politics. The surest way to make a female candidate toxic to persuadable voters, she said, is to portray that candidate as a basket case. “What do you...

    Sarah Palin believes flight 370 flew directly to heaven... how is she a senator? — DIMV (@Freshselective) March 21, 2014 The Daily Currant strikes again. The website, which calls itself “The Global Satirical Newspaper of Record,” last week claimed that Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity she believes Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 “accidentally flew too high and got stuck in heaven.” The story was cross posted to other non-satire sites and managed to fool quite a few.

    Bill Clinton uses a car-racing metaphor to explain the difference between rash and calm decision-making in politics. “The great drivers, when the cars get close, the turns get hairy, they calm down, and they see everything, and they act,” he says. “The ones who are fearful and can't concentrate and can't calm down, run into the wall.” Republican leaders should pay attention, because on the issue of whether Clinton’s sex life is relevant 14 years after he left office, they’re once again careening toward a wall. Sen. Rand Paul dredged up Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and his subsequent impeachment,...

    Wendy Davis needs to remember one important thing: She is running for governor of Texas, and for now, her focus needs to be on the Democratic primary. Period. Which means she doesn’t have to answer to Rush Limbaugh or any other GOP commentator on the national stage. She is not vying for Rush’s vote, nor is she going to win over the kinds of Texas voters who listen regularly to Rush Limbaugh. So who cares what he thinks? Doubly so for Bristol Palin. The daughter of embarrassingly disastrous GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has zero political insights that are...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Texas gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis brushed off criticism about her life story from Bristol Palin, saying that nothing Palin accused her of was true. Davis was responding to a blog post from the daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin, who wrote last week amid questions about the timeline of Davis’s personal biography, slamming her for allegedly leaving her kids behind with her ex-husband after finishing law school. “Gosh, children are sooo inconvenient, huh? I’m glad my mother didn’t put motherhood on the shelf when she was elected to City Council, then became our mayor, then governor,” Palin wrote, addressing her...

It said that “Davis has suffered and is continuing to suffer damages to her mental health, her physical health, her right to pursue public offices in the past and in the future, and...

    All I want for Christmas is for black holocaust deniers to eat the crap that comes out of their mouths, Sarah Palin for example. When the acclaimed journalist Martin Bashir was a sports reporter on "The Voice" newspaper 25 years ago, neither I nor any of his colleagues could have tipped him to be one of the most celebrated TV correspondents of his generation. In fact, he was a bit of a tasty geezer in those days with a broad cockney accent that belies his current clipped vowels. All that changed when a certain princess called up the Panorama programme...

    NEW YORK - Bristol Palin says gay activists are “hypocritical” to take offense at “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments. “I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style,” she said in a blog post. “I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about ‘love’ and ‘equality,”’ she continued. “However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion...

The former GOP vice presidential nominee had called on MSNBC to cancel Martin Bashir’s talk show. Bashir was, at the time, serving as the conscience of the network, striking fear into those who defied political correctness. Not since King George has a Brit been so brash.

Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways.

When that money comes due - and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master. What she said about the mounting national debt being a form of slavery is true, that the bill for all the borrowing will come due, that our children will have to do what foreign masters...

    Sarah Palin has said many controversial things in her life — but did John McCain’s running mate really call for the invasion of the Czech Republic? No, but a leading eastern European weekly wrote that she did — mistaking a satirical article written about Palin as fact. “Let’s burn Prague: Sarah Palin Calls for the Invasion of the Czech Republic” screamed a headline in Wprost, one of Poland’s top news publications. Wprost later yanked the article from its website after readers began questioning its authenticity on Facebook, the journalism blog JimRomenesko reported. Editor's Note: Should ObamaCare Be Repealed?

    A content analysis was conducted to examine whether a gender bias existed in national newspaper coverage of the 2008 presidential election. This presidential race proved to be historical in many aspects. Not only was the first African-American man elected to the office, but two female contenders with a viable chance of being elected also ran for the offices of president and vice president. The focus of this study is on Alaska Governor Sarah Palin who was a newcomer to the national political scene and who was the second female in history to run for vice president.

When the lawmaker expressed disappointment that some news accounts of Stevens’ death focused on negative aspects of his career, Halloran responded: "Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board," an apparent reference to Palin and her daughter’s ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston. After the leaders of both political parties denounced his comment, Halloran...

    Psst, politicians: Your witty postings on Facebook aren't private. A Democratic candidate for state representative in New Hampshire is learning this all-important lesson after weighing in on comments over the Ted Stevens plane crash with this gem: "Just wish Sarah and Levy (sic) were on board." Of course, state Republicans didn't waste much time pouncing on Keith Halloran, notes NowHampshire. “Mr. Halloran’s outrageous comments are a new low, even by the standards of the New Hampshire Democrat Party,” said GOP spokesman Ryan Williams. “His publicly stated death wish for Governor Palin and her family is abhorrent, and has no place...

    Here is video of CNN anchors John Roberts and Kiran Chetry essentially “rolling their eyes” even as they report on the accusation that Sarah Palin “rolled her eyes” at a teacher she was having a debate with in Homer, Alaska. Palin encountered the teacher as she walked through town. The woman had a huge banner that attacked Palin as the “worst governor ever.” Palin engaged the woman in debate, and when learning the woman was a teacher, she appears to raise her eyebrows and look over at daughter, Bristol. Now, the media is attacking her for “rolling her eyes” at...

    Levi Johnston is no longer engaged to Bristol Palin -- but he's got a sweet new reality show deal to help him get over it. Sources close to Johnston tell TMZ he signed a new reality deal this weekend, one that doesn't include everyone's favorite unwed teen mother from Alaska.

    Levi Johnston is no longer engaged to Bristol Palin -- but he's got a sweet new reality show deal to help him get over it. Sources close to Johnston tell TMZ he signed a new reality deal this weekend, one that doesn't include everyone's favorite unwed teen mother from Alaska. We're told Levi will actually begin shooting in Los Angeles on Monday and then cameras will follow him back to Alaska. No word yet on what the exact format will be, though several networks are said to be interested.

    A girlfriend's overbearing and manipulative mother, implications of blackmail, a forced breakup, a naked love romp, police interference…no, we simply can't imagine why Sarah and Bristol Palin had a problem with Levi Johnston's music video debut. We also can't imagine what was left on the cutting room floor, seeing as how Levi never meant to nail the Palins and all. E! News has obtained a copy of the treatment for the relationship-ending video he's set to roll camera on next week and it's not exactly what you would call a flattering portrait of his (until recent) home life. -snip- Since...

    It’s encouraging for commonsense conservatives who are frustrated with media cover-ups and biases to see truth revealed. Remember the infamous “JournoList” – the listserv chat group of hundreds of “prominent” mainstream media personalities? It seems The Daily Caller obtained copies of the JournoList email exchanges from the 2008 campaign having to do with the media’s coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, then candidate Obama’s pastor of 20 years. It’s everything you may have suspected. This, in the words of one JournoList member: “I do not endorse a Popular Front, nor do I think you need to. It’s not necessary to jump...

    Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin are already looking to bring outsiders into their upcoming marriage -- in the form of a reality TV crew ... this according to a source very familiar with the negotiations. TMZ has learned the couple has been shopping "multiple reality shows" around town -- some of the ideas involve the couple AND their two-year-old son, Tripp. We're told the leading concept involves all three people -- and will focus on "parenting issues." It's unclear if the show would be based in Alaska ... or if Bristol's mom, Sarah Palin, would be involved in some capacity....

    (CNN) -- During a speech at an event called "Freedom Fest," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin warned Tea Party activists that while government spending was a bad thing, conservatives should not go too far and start calling for reductions in the military budget. While Palin told the crowd in Norfolk, Virginia, "Something has to be done urgently to stop the out-of-control Obama-Reid-Pelosi spending machine," she also told them, "We must make sure, however, that we do nothing to undermine the effectiveness of our military." Palin's speech touched on a historic problem for the conservative movement. Ever since conservatives embraced a...
