Even if they have to lie, slander, and mock this woman with sex jokes, crazy jokes, bimbo jokes, slut jokes, and bad mother jokes every day for the next 3 and a half years, the BOIZ in our SCFP will do it. After all, it’s their JOB.
Violet Sox is excellent on the FOUR LESSONS women must learn from the Vanity Fair hit job on Sarah Palin. After making his sexist contempt for Palin’s very existence crystal clear(how DARE she be the KEYNOTE speaker at a local event in Evanston, Illinois? Who does she think she is, upstaging Michael Steele like that?), Todd Purdum asks this question, which gives his whole show away:
“What does her prominence say about the importance of having (or lacking) a record of achievement in public life?”
Is he fucking serious? Is Todd Purdum unaware of who the occupant of the White House is? Is he unaware of the (lacking) record of achievement of the previous occupant of the White House? Is Purdum unaware of the (lacking) record of MOST OF THE FREAKING members of Congress and half of the presidential candidates (Fred Thompson anyone?) last year?
Is he NOT AWARE that that question, which on the face of it seems like an interesting and important one to ponder, has already been answered beyond a shadow of a doubt? The walking, talking teleprompting answer to Purdum’s asinine and ridiculous question (Palin has an inarguable record of achievement in public life, you jackass) IS SITTING IN THE OVAL OFFICE RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE! What does THAT say Toddy-boy? That the American electorate is made up of a bunch of blithering idiots? Well, we already knew that after the 2004 re-election of W. You’re several years too late with this story Todd. But kicking public women in the teeth is a habit “journalists” just can’t seem to beat. Apparently it sells magazines.
Purdum squandered any willingness I might have had to read his article with an open mind with his continuous references to “sexiest” and “beauty queen” and “Naughty Monkey Double Dare pumps,” and “fertile” in his opening paragraphs, as well as his attempt to make Palin’s utterly mundane skill at posing for cameras look not only venal but also menacingly phony — Beauty Queen! ALL seasoned politicians are good at entering a room full of cameras and casually posing as they walk, Todd. From unlovely people like Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank to good looking ones like Bill Clinton and Jennifer Granholm. D’uh. But you know that Todd. You’re just rewriting reality to make it suit your political agenda. And that political agenda, one you share with everyone from Rachel Maddow to Frank Rich (and David Letterman and Jane Hamsher and on and on) is to KILL SARAH PALIN DEAD before the midterm elections.
Violet’s lessons are 100% correct and indispensable, but I urge you to remember this one fact: Rahm Emmanuel and his minions in the Obama Movement are trying to KILL SARAH PALIN DEAD before she can build up enough power to run against obama in 2012. Hold that fact in the front of your mind and everything you read in the SCFP and the Blogger BOIZ, or see on the mainstream media will suddenly be clear for what it is: a concerted effort to take her down.
Now, why should you care? That’s politics and it’s how winners win, right? And isn’t Sarah Palin a forced-pregnancy Republian? Yup. and yup. EXCEPT for a couple problems:
- The press should be free. A simple statement, naive if you will, but true nonetheless. The political efforts of the White House shouldn’t be being coordinated with help from the press — No matter which Party is in power.
- Even more importantly: the Obama Movement is going to take Sarah Palin down using the most sexist and misogynistic weapons they can. They can’t get her on ethics (as far as we know); they can’t get her on flip-flopping or inconsistency; they can’t get her on charisma (though they can and do use Snob Appeal effectively, CONSTANTLY reminding us of how trashy she is); and getting her on politics isn’t all that effective since, minus her forced-pregnancy views (which aren’t all THAT radical methinks), Palin’s political views are fairly reasonable: She’s a good-government, small government, responsive government champion. And after the past eight and a half years, continuing into today with news breaking every ten minutes about corruption, compromise, and double-dealing in the Democratic Party, lord knows the people are ACHING for a champion like her.
So the BOIZ are going to have to do what they have to do to bring Sarah Palin down: Use their dildos.
