MEMO TO TIME MAGAZINE – THE PALIN COVER TOO LITTLE TOO LATE

Well, well, well … Time Magazine has decided to put Sarah Palin on the cover. Hmmm … isn’t timing everything in life?

For the record, and in case anyone is counting, Obama’s mug was on Time’s cover 14 times in ’08.  Suddenly, we see Sarah.  Is it possible Palin’s resignation as Governor of Alaska is the reason for the cover or is it possible that Obama’s plummeting numbers have something to do with it?

SARAH TIME MAG

Obama is below 50% in Ohio, the economy … the Obama economy is in the tank, unemployment in the double digits … Huff Po wants to disengage as White House cheerleader.  Prepare to come about … hard alee …. jibe ho!

Everyone sing, “Oh, the times they are a changing!”


LETTERMAN STILL DOESN’T GET IT- APOLOGY #2 SELF SERVING & INADEQUATE

Well, I stayed up to hear Letterman’s apology.  I figured it was best to hear it first hand . . . it’s clear he still doesn’t get it.  For starters, the apology was all about him and his having told a bad joke!

I’ve got news for you Dave, this wasn’t about a poorly crafted joke or a flawed joke.  And  it doesn’t matter one wit that you really meant to direct the joke to Palin’s older daughter.

Are we really supposed to believe that because her older daughter is 18 that your  jokes were OK?  Really?

I am so sick and tired having to write about this time and again.  Verbal violence of this sort is unacceptable … period!  I thought we got this straight in the 70’s with the women’s movement . . . violence against one woman is violence against all women!

Know what one of the biggest differences between men and women is?  Every woman, at one time or another has had thoughts about rape.  I don’t know a lot of men having to deal with that possibility.  Women question what they would  do if it ever happened . . . could they survive a violent attack.

I don’t care what color she is, what socio-economic class she comes from, her religion, the country she lives in . . .  every woman has had to contend with thoughts of violence at one time or another in her life.Who doesn’t have story about some jerk copping a feel, or about a close call in college or high school when it could have happened, but luck and quick thinking prevailed.

The problem with Letterman’s jokes, is that they reinforce stereotypes in the minds of the sickos out there.  This kind of joking makes it seem like the sickos have permission to physically and verbally abuse women.  Sorry, that’s true . . . so don’t tell me these were only jokes.

And while I’m at it, did anyone give any thought to what kind of ridicule, Willow or Bristol might possibly face  among their peers?  No, of course not!

So, here’s my sentence for Dave Letterman, a once clever and funny mad man of late night TV . . . Dave , you get to spend weekends for the next six months visiting rape crisis centers.  You listen to the stories of the broken lives and broken hearts . . . and you tell these women how you were only joking!


OF DON IMUS’ NAPPY HEADED HO’S & DAVE LETTERMAN’S PALIN DERANGEMENT

In April 2007,  Don Imus uttered the now infamous “nappy headed ho” comment about the woman’s basketball players from Rutgers University.  His 30 second off the cuff comment was a dumb ass, unscripted moment . . . part of the “guy talk” and banter during the sports segment of his radio show.

Long time listeners like myself, winced knowing he didn’t mean to intentionally harm the girls. In fact, it was uncharacteristic for the I Man to after anyone like the women basketball players.  Imus saved his shot for the rich, the  pompous, the famous and infamous, political hucksters and hacks alike; that’s why we loved him.

The behind the scenes story that the MSM didn’t cover was this.  Media Matters had been monitoring his show for over years, recording it, waiting for him to say something that could be used against him. Imus gave Media Matters  an opening they were looking for:

At 6:14 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4, relatively few people were tuned into the “Imus in the Morning Show” when Don Imus referred to the Rutgers women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed ho’s.”

Ryan Chiachiere was. A 26-year-old researcher in Washington, D.C., for liberal watchdog organization Media Matters for America, he was assigned to monitor Mr. Imus’s program. Mr. Chiachiere clipped the video, alerted his bosses and started working on a blog post for the organization’s Web site

[…] Media Matters posted the video and transcript on its Web site and sent an email blast to several hundred reporters, as it does nearly every day.

The fact is, that Media Matters sent out an email blast to groups that included the National Organization for Women and National Association of Black Journalists.  When the Reverend Al got involved Imus was toast.  The rest, as we know, is history.

The truth is the whole event was scripted and staged.  People that had never heard an Imus broadcast were outraged . . . we had weeks of manufactured “outrage” by people with an agenda and raw political motives . . .  the cowardice and complicity of the MSM were on display. Imus apologized, multiple times, he was fired by MSNBC and CBS.

When the Imus brouhaha  happened, I was sure the conservatives and the cable entourage over at FOX News were going to have a hay day skewering Imus … he called Vice President Cheney, Pork Chop Boy on a regular basis.  He was critical of the Bush administration, after all.  But I was wrong! Wrong!

In fact, conservative radio and the right leaning cable shows jumped to his defense!  Ann Coulter (!) defended him, as did a legion of others I was sure would desert him.  I was stunned to see people in the press I had admired for years turn out to be frauds!  Slowly, I witnessed the bias of  liberal MSM . . . liberal bias wasn’t a delusion of those on the right!   It wasn’t a delusion and I was wrong.  Time Magazine was a rag and forget MSNBC.

It was the Imus controversy that started my activism.  I was calling radio shows (!) and blogging for the first time in my life, defending a grumpy old comic on principle! Irony abounds here, because at the time I was very critical of Hillary Clinton . .  and  I wouldn’t change my opinion about her until the New Hampshire primary, but that’s another story!

By the time the primaries were in full swing, the MO of the MSM was easy to spot and predict.  It was clear the MSM had a school girl crush on Obama.  Hillary and Sarah, on the other hand, were targets of the most vicious attacks and would remain so.  What happened to them remains unconscionable, which leads us to today, CBS and Dave Letterman.

Now comes Dave Letterman, CBS’s late night comic.   Apparently, Letterman is an Obama crackhead . . .  no longer capable of figuring out that a 14 year daughter of a politician is off limits to sexual comments and innuendo during a “comedy” monologue .  What he said was crude, tasteless, insensitive, and unnecessary.  Actually, it was unforgivable given the fact that his monologue is scripted and described over at HillBuzz:

On June 9th, 2009, David Letterman told his audience that Sarah Palin’s daughter had been “knocked up” during a New York Yankees game by 33 year-old Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez.  Sarah Palin’s daughter, the only child of hers attending that Yankees game in New York, is 14 years-old — making Letterman’s joke about statutory rape, and how funny it is that during a baseball game at the new Yankee Stadium Alex Rodriguez took time during one of the innings to rape Willow Palin, impregnate her, and then get back to his duties on the field.

The next day, on June 10th, 2009, David Letterman said Willow Palin had become a prostitute, and was now kin to the hookers hired by former Governor Eliot Spitzer.

This is, of course, in addition to Letterman calling the Governor of America’s largest state “a slutty flight attendant”, accusing her of having a crack habit, denigrating her intelligence, and implying she was a lesbian.

I’m going to say this again, the monologue was rehearsed & scripted and meant to hurt, demean, and diminish Sarah Palin and her family. Not only did the monologue go on for several minutes, but the controversy has continued roiling for days. The words in Letterman’s monologue were the equivalent of  media approved violence against a 14 year old young girl and a woman whose political views the MSM is terrified of. Cowards and bullies pick on girls and women attending a baseball game!

I can’t rid my system of the bile when I see videos of Letterman’s attacks on Sarah and her daughters.  His apology that he didn’t mean the 14 year old daughter, but the 18 year old daughter is obscene.  I guess rape against the 18 year old is OK.  Dave, you are an asshole!

And what about CBS’s reaction and the reaction of the cast of characters that were so outraged over Imus?   CBS the network of Katie Couric, the network that fired Imus … because of a 30 second unscripted moment  . .  has remained silent … not even a slap on the hand. The National Organization for Woman, the same group that went after Imus like a bunch of cats after a field mouse,  finally issued a tepid statement about Letterman’s Palin derangement … after three days!

Of course, NBC and MSNBC have not disappointed us in the hypocrisy department either.  Contessa (I’m dumber and denser than a stone) Brewer remains perplexed  why Palin didn’t understand Letterman’s joke.  Olbermann has continued his blame the victim routine against Palin; ya, how dare Sarah think she could go to a baseball game with her daughter and not be attacked? Matt Lauer took Letterman’s side while Sarah Palin defended her daughter and girls and women across the country.

The list of hypocrites and Palin/conservative haters goes on and on . . . all defending the indefensible.

So,  boys ‘n girls what have we learned through all of this?  Well, apparently some comedians get a pass and others don’t.   See, it depends on what color you are and your political persuasion.

If you are liberal, left, and an Obama supporter you get a free pass no matter how vile and hateful your words are. That’s why Letterman still has a job … what he said was comedy.  See the difference?

If you are perceived to be conservative, pro-life, or anyone that is perceived to threaten Obama and the liberal/progressive agenda . . . watch out.  If you are a black comedian attacking a white girl you get a pass as well, ask Miley Cyrus. See, what this jerk-off said was comedy. See the difference?

It’s become de rigueur . . . you must be rude and crude and anything goes.  That’s why Anderson Cooper can poke fun about how difficult it is to talk while tea bagging, Jenine Garafalo can spew her venomous hatred towards all things not Obama.

BTW, Al Roker former NBC Today Show fatso (see fatso is OK because it’s just a little teasing),  was among the cast of characters who was “outraged” at Imus 30 second remark . . . a few weeks later he was joking around &  made an off the cuff comment of his own about epilepsy and epileptic seizures.  He didn’t get fired.  See, the difference?

Obama dissed the Special Olympians during the campaign.  Any  outrage here by the MSM!  No, of course not!   See, the difference?

THE “N” WORD & THE “C” WORD- RACISM & SEXISM AS DEFINED BY THE MSM (UPDATED)

My apologies for this crude use of those two vile words in yesterday’s post.

When I started blogging I had hoped this blog would be a place for intelligent discourse and thoughtful comments about politics. Yesterday I got into the gutter with the worst that is out there in the blogoshpere.

Of course, this was made all the easier since I was recently called a cunt by one of Obama’s supporters. I’m tired of the MSM ignoring what is happening to Palin while the MSM insists raising Obama into sainthood. Looking at the Palin/cunt tees yesterday, was the tipping point.

WHICH WORD OFFENDS THE MSM, THE “NOW” FEMINISTS LIKE MAUREEN DOWD AND SALLY QUINN?

WELL, IF YOU THOUGHT BOTH WERE EQUALLY HATEFUL AND BOTH SHOULD BE CONDEMNED BY THE MSM, YOU’D BE WRONG. OBAMA SUPPORTERS ARE WEARING VILE PALIN/CUNT TEES AT OBAMA EVENTS AND THE ONLY NETWORK TO COMMENT ON THIS IS FOX.

THE SOUND YOU HEAR IN THE BACKGROUND IS THE SILENCE FROM EVERY OTHER NETWORK ON THE TOPIC. ONE SUPPORTER AT A MC CAIN EVENT YELLS SOMETHING FROM THE CROWD (BTW, HOW DO WE KNOW THIS GUY WASN’T A PLANT FROM THE OBAMA TEAM WHO INTENTIONALLY SHOUTED IN ORDER TO MAKE THE MC CAIN CAMPAIGN LOOK BAD?) AND THE MSM IS ALL OVER THIS LIKE TICKS ON A HOUND DOG . . . BUT NOT A WORD ABOUT THIS OUTRAGE!

JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT, GOOGLE OUTRAGE OVER “PALIN/CUNT TEES” AND LINK IT TO ABC, CNN, MSNBC, ETC. AND SEE WHAT YOU GET. NOTHING! THE OUTRAGE IS FOUND ONLY ON THE INTERNET.

OLBERMANN WHERE ARE YOU? WHAT IF YOUR LIBERAL GIRL FRIEND, STEPHANIE MILLER, WERE CALLED THAT? WOULD YOU OUTRAGED AT THAT?

BUT THIS IS O.K. BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE PALIN AND YOU WANT OBAMA TO WIN. GUESS WE WON’T SEE ONE OF YOUR OVERWROUGHT “SPECIAL COMMENTS” TONIGHT, RIGHT?

Sorry I’m shouting, but I am really angry this morning.

Over the weekend, John Lewis, attacked John McCain, comparing him to George Wallace . . . GEORGE WALLACE . . . one of the worst of racists during the Civil Rights movement. Why . . . because Sarah Palin commented that Obama pals around with terrorists like Bill Ayers.

Bill Ayers was/remains an unrepentant terrorist and Obama kicked off his presidential campaign in Ayers living room; those are facts.

Tell me who the racists & feminists are, again.

Tell me who the racists & feminists are, again.

This is what the children of liberals look like. See those smug, self assured, “we are sooooo much better than you are” grins on their faces? That’s the look of elitism, enhanced by “doing lines of Kool-Aid” on a daily basis. My God, I’m starting to sound like Ann Coulter.

If you are interested in viewing more hate filled fashions as displayed by the Obamabots, look here.

BTW, seems to me that any female that wears a teeshirt with the “C” word on it shouldn’t be allowed to procreate because we need fewer stupid people in the world.

Wait . . . what am I thinking about? The look on that girl’s face tells me she won’t give abortion a second thought.
