The Daily Caller has a nasty habit of attacking Governor Sarah Palin outright, and telling lies about her as well. Tucker Carlson, the head a-hole over there, runs nothing less than a sophomoric frat house [something I have proudly pointed out not only to him, but his running buddy Matt Lewis, on more than one occasion] This little “good old boys club” is particularly fond of making sexist remarks about women, often while outright lying about them.
Such was the case back in 2011, when Carlson not only lied outright about Governor Palin’s popularity, and viability in Iowa, but in a tweet called the Governor a “MILF” which, if you don’t know, stands for Mother I’d Like to F*ck.

When more clowns, like Red State’s Erick Erickson joined in, yucking it up with Carlson, and repeating the polling misinformation, to boot, Whitney let loose on the whole lot with her blistering: MILF–Misogynists (and Elites) I’d Like to Fulminate.
For her part, Greta called Carlson a “pig‘ after his remark about Governor Palin.
In June of 2012, the Caller, in various articles, called Governor Palin “irreverent” a favorite attack of those who oppose Governor Palin’s common sense conservatism. That was par for the course, of course, but hilariously, those jackasses weren’t done. Governor Palin was so “irrelevant” [in their eyes] that not one, but TWO articles were penned, by The DC’s “Senior Editor” Jamie Weinstein and Alex Pappas, respectively, BEGGING Governor Palin to endorse Mitt Romney. Even in this,“Senior Editor” Weinstein couldn’t help himself:
Sarah Palin has become increasingly irrelevant, but her endorsement still remains sought after by GOP candidates.
After begging for her gold plated endorsement for the feckless Romney, he ended with:
Sarah, Sarah where are you?
Pappas whined in his piece:
While Sarah Palin has made it concretely clear that she’s opposed to President Barack Obama’s re-election, the former governor of Alaska has not yet offered a formal endorsement of the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
Palin — the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, who admitted to voting for Newt Gingrich during the GOP primary — said earlier this year that she would support Romney “100 percent” if he became the nominee.
But she hasn’t been very enthusiastic about supporting the former Massachusetts governor since he clinched the nod.
“I honestly believe that anybody running on a GOP ticket would be infinitely better than what we have today, with these failed socialist policies,” Palin said on NBC’s “Today” show in April — after it was clear that Romney would be the nominee.
Aides to Palin did not comment on questions posed by TheDC on this topic Monday.
It’s no surprise that she’s not Romney’s biggest fan: Fox News reported over this weekend that in giving a keynote speech to conservative activists Friday at the RightOnline convention in Las Vegas, Palin did not mention Romney once during her 35-minute address.
Is it any wonder why Governor Palin and her people felt no obligation to give the frat boys the time of day?
I covered the whole affair here.
That brings us to the latest outright LIE The Daily Caller has chosen to spread. Out of the blue a few days ago, they claimed Governor Palin DEMANDED an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Their claim is that Governor Palin wanted to “set the record straight” and promote herself. Never mind Governor Palin had ALREADY appeared on the show when Conan O’Brien was the host, and she and William Shatner did a hilarious beat poetry bit together.
Governor Palin took to Facebook a few days ago to set Carlson and his lying crew of frat boys straight about her appearance with Jay Leno:
Guess the boys at The Daily Caller spent a bit too much time at the frat house and not enough time in their college library. (Or maybe it’s in one of their Jr. High tree forts where their leader gathers the boys to “report” their “conservative” issues.) Their claims about what I supposedly “demanded” of the Tonight Show are, in their frat boy terms, B.S. This is not the first time we’ve had to correct their sloppy “journalism.” Paraphrasing and dramatizing sure doesn’t fit into any fair and balanced image, especially from a little fella loving his title of FOX News Channel host. Maybe those bow ties are a bit too tight, bros.
In contrast to your erroneous reporting (Hey! Come to think of it, this time it’s merely erroneous; it’s not your usual misogynist slant!), we loved visiting the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I had a blast on the show. Leno’s team was top notch, professional, and funny; and some even brought their families to work that day so they could meet mine. That was neat! Thanks for the memories, Jay!
I’m looking forward to reading Dave Berg’s great new book “Behind the Curtain: An Insider’s View of Jay Leno’s Tonight Show.” Dave reached out by email to my team to share the following: “I consider Gov. Palin’s booking on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show one of the best gets I ever got. I had worked long and hard to book her, both during and after her vice-presidential campaign. She turned out to be a charming guest, who also did a killer standup, and her ratings won the night by a large margin. You can’t ask for more from a guest.”
Thank you for the kind comments, Dave. Back at ya!

Who you gonna believe, a filthy liar who attacks Conservatives, or Jay Leno’s booker and top hand?
BTW, how good was Governor Palin on the Tonight Show? The very same time she was on, Governor Mitt Romney was on sexist pig David Letterman’s show. The difference between Governor Palin’s star-power and Governor Romney’s complete lack of personality was so great, Jon Stewart produced his own hilarious bit, which can be seen here: Leno-Palin vs Letterman-Romney.
Point, Palin all the way around.
