Washington Post Attacks Palin Joke, Ignores the Hypocrisy of Michelle Obama’s Fat Ass

Sarah Palin spoke Thursday at the Long Island Association, a business group in New York. The event was notable for the fact that Palin invited the press–something she does rarely. And it was newsworthy in that she gave another sign she might actually run for president: News reports say she hinted with a smile that someone who is good at multitasking (“a woman, a mom”), as well as someone who’s already run for something (“a vice-presidential candidate?”) would be most qualified for the job.

Ed Koch: Palin Holds High Ground Over Harsh and Unfair Critics

As I see it, in the current battle for public opinion Sarah Palin has defeated her harsh and unfair critics.

After the January 8 shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six others in Tucson, Arizona, some television talking heads and members of the blogosphere denounced her and held her in part responsible for creating a climate of hatred that resulted in the mass attacks.

An example is Joe Scarborough and his crew on the “Morning Joe” show, which I watch and generally enjoy every morning at 6:30 a.m. when I rise to start the day.

Huckabee Has Highest Favorable Rating, Palin Fourth

Republicans with an eye on the White House have some work to do on improving their image and recognition by voters.
A new Gallup Poll shows Mike Huckabee is the most liked and Sarah Palin is the best known in the crowded field of potential 2012 GOP presidential candidates.
Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and winner of the 2008 Iowa GOP caucuses, has a net favorable rating of 30% among Republicans and is recognized by 87%. Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, comes in fourth in favorability (22%) but is recognized by 95%.

New Hampshire Democrats: If You Pray for America, You Have a ‘Bible-Belt Agenda’

The party of tolerance strikes again in New Hampshire.  According to the spokesperson of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Harrell Kirstien, the speech below by state Rep. David Bates is an attempt to impose a new theocracy on the US.  That may come as a surprise to most Christians who attend church and hear the same message of sin, redemption, and the need for atonement and prayer just about every Sunday.  In response, a conservative political group has demanded an apology from the Democrats for Kirstien’s “bigotry.”  Watch the video and see just where Bates calls for a government imposition of prayer vigils:

MSNBC’s House Republican Attacks Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin addressing the Republican National...Image via Wikipedia Morning Joke seems to be trying to goad Sarah Palin into a war so he can boost his crippled ratings:

Why do I suspect that Scarborough is hoping Palin will fire back on her Facebook page, guaranteeing a day or two of headlines about the “PALIN-SCARBOROUGH BRAWL” and ensuring the most attention he has enjoyed in years? How far away can a “How to Save the GOP from Sarah Palin” book deal be? Between Keith Olbermann’s suspensions and fights with management, Ed Schultz’s arson threats, Bill O’Reilly’s fireworks on The View, and Glenn Beck’s big rallies on the Mall, all the big cable hosts seem to spend as much time making the news as reporting it. Scarborough has chosen the easiest and most well-trod path to a white-hot spotlight: defining himself as a furious foe of Palin.

Squishy Republican Kathleen Parker Threatens to Quit CNN Show

NEW YORK - MARCH 10:  (FILE PHOTO) New York Go...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeHooker aficionado Elliot Spitzer is apparently driving Kathleen Parker nuts because of his power grabs on their show. She is tired of being used like a pair of black socks.

Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker actually stormed off the set of the “Parker Spitzer” show during a pre-taping a few weeks ago — furious that her co-host is continually allowed to take charge of their nightly CNN chat-fest, the insiders said.
Although still fuming, Parker did return to wrap up the segment, they said.
But she’s angry that the show’s producers are allegedly doing nothing to play up her strengths on the ailing show, the sources said.

Poll Shows that Americans Don’t Think Obama Deserves Re-election

Almost half of voters say President Barack Obama doesn’t deserve a second term, and he is in a statistical tie with two top possible Republican challengers, a Quinnipiac University poll shows.

By 49 percent to 43 percent, poll respondents say Obama shouldn’t be re-elected in 2012. If a contest were held today with Republican rival Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, Obama is supported by 44 percent of those surveyed and Romney by 45 percent.

In a race with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Obama garners 46 percent to Huckabee’s 44 percent. Obama does the best in a race against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, winning 48 percent to 40 percent. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. 


Jealous Liberal Chick Attacks Sarah Palin’s Ability to ‘Work the Media’

Palin, on the other hand, understands how to use reality TV the way the Kennedys understood how to use photography. In “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,’’ produced by Mark Burnett, she’s a bona fide folk hero, in makeup, with flawless hair. She’s fishin’, she’s shootin’, she’s tryin’ to keep boys out of her daughter Willow’s bedroom. She’s draggin’ her family with her; in the opening credits, their first names flash across the screen in cutesy print as they handle firearms and wrestle fish. (Not all relatives are equal; little Trig appears only briefly tonight, waving from the window as his parents go off mountain climbing. And husband Todd is omnipresent but near-silent. Just like a political wife.)
