There are Rumors Sarah Palin Is Corrupt And Stupid
I just wanted to make sure that was right at the top. I want every blogger to put something like that at the top of a post
, to make sure that Sarah Palin is swamped with lawsuit targets and nobody forgets how ridiculous she looks
A still-sitting governor threatens a blogger for reporting the truth
, that rumors of corruption and a to-be-revealed scandal swirl about the governor. This is fresh off the heels of her quitting because, poor thing, she's in over her head
, and before that threatening David Letterman, who I hope takes the opportunity to make mincemeat of her tomorrow. As the blogger in question, Shannyn Moore, did in her statement
When Sarah Palin gave her three-weeks notice to the people of Alaska, aborting her term as Governor, a lot of people wondered why she quit. Mid-level managers turn-in their notice, not elected public officials. It didn't make sense. It still doesn't. People have been trying to guess why she really quit, and everyone in Alaska has been playing the guessing game. They're rumors. There are a lot of rumors. And with all the corruption we've had here in Alaska, of course we wonder what's really behind her resignation.
Governors don't just quit. But Governor Palin did.
The governor's massive overreaction -on the Fourth of July no less- should make any reasonable person wonder what's wrong with her. The Lady protests way too much. Eventually we'll all find out why she really walked off the job.
Sarah Palin is a coward and a bully. What kind of politician attacks an ordinary American on the Fourth of July for speaking her mind? What's wrong with her? The First Amendment was designed to protect people like me from the likes of people like her. Our American Revolution got rid of kings. And queens, too. Am I jacked-up? You betcha.
Sarah Palin, if you have a problem with me, then sue me. Shannyn Moore will not be muzzled!
I don't really care whether this simply reflects that she has no understanding of the country she lives in, or history, or the Constitution, or the irony of violating freedom of the press on July 4. We already knew she's unsuited to any leadership position. (I would be horrified if she was a PTA leader) But then she keeps giving us more reasons. In this case, that she's Nixon without the intelligence. Which fits in well with her rambling, bitter resignation speech, very reminiscent of the "you won't have Nixon to kick around anymore" speech--which, unfortunately, was as much a lie as anything else Nixon ever promised. And I'm sure we'll have Palin to kick around for some time, no matter what I'd prefer.
But I have to wonder--this woman lost the election, more than anything on the GOP side, for the Republicans.
Why aren't they cutting their losses and blaming her? When the Democrats lost in 2004, do you think they then made John Kerry a rallying totem? Or in 1984, Geraldine Ferraro?(who's known to say some idiotic things herself
, which I assure you the Democratic party did not back her on)
Also, Palin has been threatening other news organizations with lawsuits:
Using the substantial might of the Executive branch of government to bring down unenforceable legal threats on a private citizen in Alaska, and attempting to curtail free speech through intimidation on the Fourth of July? Not a particularly brilliant PR move. By specifically singling out and naming Moore, Palin has done two things; she has shown herself to be a reactionary immature politician, and she has made Shannyn Moore a lot better known. And she is not the only one in Sarah Palin's crosshairs, mind you. You stand warned Huffington Post, New York Times, MSNBC and The Washington Post! You just better knock it off!
The New York Times and Washington Post haven't written anything about this, but Van Flein said he believed they were asking questions. "What I've been informed is that they've been interviewing people in Wasilla about this, and have tried to interview the governor's parents about it," Van Flein said.
OK, in the case of The New York Times and the Washington Post, you'd better stop even thinking about asking questions about it.
Here's the thing, Palin. You're a public figure. It's too late for defamation lawsuits. You can't file them anymore. The New York Times itself established that legal precedent
. You can't just be a private citizen when it suits you. You can't try to stir up publicity for yourself and then get to cherry-pick what people say about you. And by the way, you are a corrupt liar. And a weasel. And an idiot, with a family of rednecks. And try to update that hair, huh? You look like a truckstop waitress around 1982.
Oh, and John McCain, God damn you to Hell for bringing this thing into the limelight, you stupid old fuck.
