Governor Sarah Palin Hammers “Misogynist Frat Boys” at Daily Caller for Their LATEST Lies About Her

Carlson

By Gary P Jackson

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!

Please check out Dave’s new book. It looks like a really fun read. You can get a copy here: http://is.gd/HLzN4o or here: http://is.gd/z7Yknh

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.

Sarah Palin is so Irrelevant The Daily Caller Has TWO Articles Begging Her to Endorse Romney

By Gary P Jackson

The Daily Caller’s collection of what I’ll loosely call “journalists” prove once again, when you have nothing to say, throw up something with Sarah Palin’s name in the headline, and you’ll have eyes on your article.

In what looks to be your basic “open thread,” catch-all sort of post, that has several subjects of marginal interest, The DC’s “Senior Editor” Jamie Weinstein chose the title TheDC Morning: The missing barracuda. We all know who the Barracuda is when we are talking politics.

Anyhow, in what may be this dumbest opening statement ever written, “Senior Editor” writes:

Sarah Palin has become increasingly irrelevant, but her endorsement still remains sought after by GOP candidates.

Yeah she’s so irrelevant that her’s is the nation’s most treasured and sought after endorsement, and your own website has not one but two articles begging her to endorse Mitt Romney, and do it now.

Our happless “Senior Editor” ends with a rather desperate:

Sarah, Sarah where are you?

If she’s so irrelevant, why is “Senior Editor” on his knees begging? [At least that’s how I picture “Senior Editor,” on his knees, hat in hand, begging!]

That brings us to Alex Pappas, who “Senior Editor” quotes in his piece.

Alex rambles:

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.

Not sure why any of Sarah’s “aides” [Todd? Piper?] would give TheDC the time of day.

Remember, this is a website whose publisher, Tucker Carlson, once tweeted that Sarah was a “MILF” and has a record of saying similar things about other Conservative women. Not quite Bill Maher territory, but the two share a fence line.

It just so happens I had a discussion earlier today with someone knowledgeable about the Right Online conference, and Americans for Prosperity. It seems, as a non-profit, they have a policy of not allowing individual endorsements at their events. In fact, as a 501(c)(3), the law [and the IRS] demand that no endorsements be allowed. So Sarah Palin didn’t endorse Mitt Romney, at Right Online, because it simply wasn’t the time nor the place.

Too bad TheDC’s crack team of writers couldn’t have found this out before writing not one, but TWO articles begging on Romney’s behalf.

I find it hilarious that this bunch truly thinks Sarah is irrelevant, and yet, the fact that she hasn’t endorsed the Republican nominee for president yet, warrants TWO articles mentioning this.

It’s a rare person who has so much relevance that their non-action can garner as much attention as their actions.

No doubt Sarah will do everything in her power to help remove President Obama from power. I just find it interesting that a group who tried so hard to keep Sarah from running for president herself, now act like Romney’s victory hinges on what she says or does.

Maybe all of those Romney staffers, who have attacked her since before the 2008 election was over, should have thought of that beforehand!

Don’t worry “Senior Editor” Sarah doesn’t want Obama to win re-election. Now get off your knees and dry your tears. You too Alex.

Because we can:

You’d have me down… down… down… down on my knees

Now wouldn’t you, Barracuda?

MILF–Misogynists (and Elites) I’d Like to Fulminate

by Whitney Pitcher
As the 2012 elections draw near, the Elites and misogynists in the Republican party have doubled down on their direct and indirect attacks on both Governor Palin and grassroots conservatism. In a post at the National Review yesterday, Romesh Pennuru argues that a Romney/Palin match up in the Republican presidential primary would be bad for the party (emphasis mine):

So there is a non-trivial chance that the Republican nomination contest could come down to Palin vs. Romney, and that their conflict could define the primaries. And that’s very bad news for the Republican party. A campaign that pits the two against each other would divide the Republican party along each of its fault lines.

Funny. I thought presidential elections were about what is best for the country, not the Republican party. Silly me. However, he shows the true problem that the Establishment and Elites have with Governor Palin and other conservatives. In the eyes of the elitist Establishment, their greater problem is not with the Left or the Democrats in Washington; it is with people like Governor Palin who have the potential to rid them of their hold on the Republican party.

Pennuru later goes on to describe the class struggle within the party:

Class is another increasingly uncomfortable fault line in the party (as Reihan Salam and I recently described in these pages). Romney’s supporters tend to be college-educated, while Palin draws her support from people who didn’t get college diplomas. In recent elections, upper-middle-class voters have left the Republican party in part because they regard it as dominated by yahoos and know-nothings. But other voters, particularly in the party’s base, resent what they see as a tendency to overestimate the importance of degrees from prestigious colleges.

While recent polling data supports his assertion with regards to education, Pennuru exemplifies how out-of-touch many of the elites/Establishment are. The class issue is not an issue of education level; it’s an issue of entitlement and character. The Establishment feels the “next in line”, such as Mitt Romney, is deserving of the Republican nomination, but if that touted candidate couldn’t win the previous primary election, what makes them automatically entitled to the next nomination? Such an attitude disrespects the American electorate’s ability to choose a nominee for themselves. The character of the elites and Establishment are called into question when they so often choose to remain anonymous in their criticism of Governor Palin, like when unnamed Romney aides said she “isn’t a serious human being” or multiple nameless GOP operatives trashed Governor Palin’s supposed unelectability out of fear that her nomination may destroy their power structure in the GOP.

The most visible example of this is none other than Karl Rove, whose political dictionary seems to define gravitas as possession of a XY chromosome and a resume that includes time in a Bush administration. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Rove criticized Governor Palin’s travelogue show, and those close to him stated that Rove was frustrated by the fact that the Tea Party was outside of his ability to control. To which Rove discusses:

He says Palin’s people responded to his criticisms by suggesting they’d found a new way to campaign.

“Some of her people have talked to me and said, ‘Look, the old rules don’t apply,’?” says Rove. “In essence, the candidate is the message. We’ll see. That’s an interesting view, and we’ll see how accurate it is.”

By operating without filters in a flattened media environment, Palin and the tea party have argued that power is now bottom-up, divorced from the top-down organizing structures Rove has functioned within for more than 30 years.

The rules of the Establishment no longer apply. It isn’t about the next in line or the preferences of the Elite. That is why Rove’s preferred candidate and the man Pennuru touts as the compromise between Governor Palin and Governor Romney, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, will likely have little traction in a 2012 election. What Rove calls an ” interesting view” is that the message and the messenger do indeed matter. That is why a man like Governor Daniels, who isn’t known for his charisma ,who presided over President Bush’s bloated budgets and would support a Value Added Tax, will not fly with an electorate looking for both the right message and the right messenger.

Perhaps an additional reason that Governor Palin does not win the respect of the Elite and Establishment is that you cannot be praised for your “perfectly creased pants” if you often wear a skirt, right David Brooks? The continued line of attack from the Establishment and Elite men in the GOP have come as a result of Governor Palin’s genetic makeup. As Stacy wrote about yesterday, Daily Caller editor and Fox News contributor, Tucker Carlson, tweeted a sexist reference to Governor Palin as a MILF (mother I’d like to F**k). Sadly, it even took him two tweets to even get an apology right. The irony of this is that Carlson’s site called out Chris Matthews earlier this week for his sexist and derogatory comments. Red State editor and CNN commentator, Erick Erickson joined in the misogyny when he tweeted the following last night:

Maybe my sense of humor needs to be recalibrated, but when I heard @TuckerCarlson’s MILFistan comment, I laughed then got out my passport.

Yes, Erickson’s sense of humor needs to be recalibrated. What is funny about denigrating any woman? What is politically constructive about objectifying the most powerful political voice in America?

Much like Governor Palin’s redefinition of President Obama’s Win the Future acronym, perhaps a redefinition of MILF is needed–Misogynists (and Elitists) I’d Like to Fulminate. What do these lines of attack boil down to? It might very well be best described by one of Governor Palin’s political role models, Margaret Thatcher, who once said, ” I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding, because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have no political argument left”.

Thatcher’s words ring true. The Elites and misogynists do not attack Governor Palin on the issues; they attack her personally–her class and her gender. After all, what’s there to criticize about the one potential candidate who could best provide the solutions on what appears to be a coming energy crisis? What’s there to criticize about a woman who has been prescient on commodity inflation that has resulted because of quantitative easing? The elites and the misogynists cannot criticize Governor Palin on the issues because there’s is little to criticize. Governor Palin has always been open to discussion of the issues, but when the elites and misogynists stoop to the level of chauvinistic pig, even with a tint of elitist lipstick, they are still chauvinistic pigs.
