Weekend Watercooler Edition

Yay it’s the weekend everyone!!

The weather here is going to be glorious and we have a busy weekend planned. Things really seem to be heating up in the political world. There is the pushback on Game Change, Breitbart BIGS vetting of Obama, Rush’s pushback on his advertisers, The Undefeated premiering on television.

Don’t forget to set your clocks!  We spring forward tonight.


So Obama has the nerve to request this… and yet makes this suggestion

Maybe he mistook the White House for Motel 6… maybe they left the light on…

LaDonna talks to Lisa Klein and Jason Recher

Keeping it classy

Great roundup on Game Change…

Lookie who is freaking out…

Well, well, well

Mama Grizzly pans Game Change…

It’s a surge

Harsh reality for Santorum…

All the way

Shhhhhh… that is the plan

Yay Maryland O4P!!  You all rock!  I love that SarahPac actually produced the Showbill.

Gov. Palin emails Jake…

Woo Hoo!  Stacy’s name is in lights at Big Hollywood!!

Ummmm, maybe he forgets who pays his salary…  no matter what the “idiot” was asking (he has a good point) my first reaction would have been “damn dude, I’m your employer, you STFU and listen”…

My magic eightball told me this… it is that obvious…

I’m getting a tingle up my leg with the wealth of good stuff on Breitbart right now.  Too many links so I say grab a cup of joe and head here to read away…

I just love this

Oh good, finally some productivity

Good riddance

Whoa, whoa, whoooaaaa… is it tipping (to the left)?…

And they thought it was smart to take a turkey and cheese sandwich away… cuz this is so much yummier…

This makes Sandra Fluke look like a flunkie in the hero category…

Concerned Women for America is getting their grrrrrrrrrr on here, here and here!!!


Hell hath frozen over…

Heh… this is more like it!

Finally, someone gets it

So Romney and Santorum thought it was smart to have staffers at the premiere?  Dumbasses…

Have a great weekend!  I’ll update if there is breaking news otherwise I will be playing with my kids.






  • Akabosan

    Again thank you, Firelight.  I hope you and your family have a wonder-filled weekend.

    Well, I guess we are going to have to rely on our mommies again, just like when we were little.

    The people that Mr. Breitbart referred to as “eunuchs” are still doing a great job of their eunuching, but that won’t get this ship turned around.

    So for their efforts so far and for their future plans, I’d like to give my personal thanks to conservative women in this country.

    Mrs. Palin, Mrs. Firelight, Mrs. Crueladev, Mrs. Pitcher, and Mrs. Myrdal, are some I can think of that  I have seen or seen mentioned here on P4A.  Thank you ladies and for the thousands of others that are coming forth to nurture our nation.


  • Nancy6

    I would caution Governor Palin to ever campaign on Guam, because unlike the goobs running now, if she ever did step foot on that island, it would tip over from all the people stampeding to meet her.

  • section9

    You are too kind, Firelight.

    I shall be absent for the next few days, as I will be visiting the daughter in Tennessee. Best to all.


  • Guest

    Tapper says Roney and Santorum top staffers at “Fact Change” . What???????? Hobnobbing with the enemy at a Palin (and apparently)& Christian bashing event? Not a good idea, not a good idea at all. Not to mention the way that the film purportedly depicts the people at the rallies. Did they want to insult Palin- or be seen with the “in” crowd? I know who I’m not voting for now.

    • Akabosan

      Is Jake Tapper the new Sam Donaldson?  It seems he is more fair than most of the recent LSM reporters…  or have we just drifted so far that in comparison he SEEMS fair?

    Morning all …….Pietro Leatherchest here….another bright sunny 80 degree day in the great desert Southwest……Slept in this morning so I’m getting a late start on things….Does anyone know where the Gov. is?  That background on her interview could have been Seattle or Phoenix…Obummer is sinking in the polls again…Allred thinks Rush should be charged with a crime…( breathing while being conservative). Bob Kerry drops out of senate race in Neb. Well, that’s it for now. Have a great week-end and be safe.

    • Bill589

      Allred is All Unflippinbelievable. Since I do not think she is stupid, and probably does know the law, that just leaves – she will lie for the enemy.

      Why do so many choose the dark side?

  • OldPat

    Cross post from C4P

    Our problem with the PPC spans the entire political spectrum – not just the left of it.

    A few pearls of wisdom from the intrepid leaders of our side of the aisle in recent years:

    First up – George H W Bush

    ‘I have opinions of my own, strong opinions, but I don’t always agree with them.’

    ‘It’s no exaggeration to say the undecideds could go one way or another.’

    ‘You cannot be President of the United States if you don’t have
    faith.  Remember Lincoln, going to his knees in times of trial in the
    Civil War and all that stuff.’

    ‘I’m not what you call your basic intellectual.’

    ‘…read my lips.  No new taxes.’

    ‘Boy, they were big on crematoriums, weren’t they?’ – during a tour of Auschwitz in 1989

    ‘Let me give you a little serious political advice.  One single word.  Puppies.  Worth the points.’

    ‘Fluency in English is something that I’m often not accused of.’

    And finally, the Bushism that sums up his contribution to history – ‘Oh, the vision thing.’

    And to prove the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, here are a couple from Bush43:

    ‘I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.’

    ‘Let’s make sure that there is certainty during uncertain times in our economy.’

    ‘Amigo!  Amigo!’ – as he called out to the Italian Prime Minister…

    And my favorite:’Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.’ – his parting words to Gordon Brown and Nicholas Sarkozy at his last G8 Summit

    And, my friends, Jeb is in the on-deck circle waiting his turn at bat.  LOL.

  • OldPat

    Last Oct. 5th when you heard the news did you
    feel a twinge of sadness and regret? 
    That twinge you felt was your freedom taking flight as our RINO friends
    stabbed WE the PEOPLE in the back.

    The good news out of all this is threefold:

    1 – The parasites missed their mark and she and WE survivetheir attack.
    2 – She ‘will be at that convention’.
    3 – Our freedom circles in the clouds above waiting to see
    if WE have the foresight and courage to reclaim that which our PPC has stolen.

    We still have a chance to give her a brokered
    convention.  We need to continue doing
    whatever we can to make that happen.

    It is becoming
    clearer and clearer day by day that none of the dwarfs has what it takes to get
    the job done.  Proof?  She draws more attention than all the ‘little
    ones’ combined on Super Tuesday merely by casting her ballot in Alaska.

    It’s high time WE the PEOPLE gave our PPC a wake-up
    call.  They’re thick-headed, haven’t been
    listening, believe they’re our betters, and think we work for them.

    May I suggest WE ‘pay our respects’ to these clowns in Tampa come Aug. and help
    them extricate their heads.  As long as
    their ears aren’t the size of BO’s, it won’t hurt them too much.  But even if it does, so what?  After all, NO PAIN – NO GAIN.

    Since I’m on a roll, I could never forgive myself if I
    didn’t say a few words about ole BO, so here goes…

    Sitting aside his trusted steed, Volt, this quixotic dolt
    tilts at windmills and solar panels and intends to steal our children’s future
    and freedom to finance his communist utopia. 
    He must be defeated come November, and WE the PEOPLE have just the
    person for that job – our Alaskan Truthsayer, our Moral Compass – Gov. Sarah

    For those who tell me BO’s no fool, he’s smart, he knows
    what he’s doing, I say horsefeathers. 
    Just look at Bush 41.  He graduated
    from Yale in 2.5 years but didn’t have the common sense the Good Lord gives a
    fence post.

    That’s ole BO up one side and down the other.  Just enough brains to skate thru college with
    some ‘help’, but not even as much common sense as Bush 41- let alone that fence
    post.  He lives in Never-never land,
    never did an honest day’s work in his life, wouldn’t know the real world if it
    bit him in the ass, never met a question he couldn’t answer, and thinks he’s
    Allah’s gift to the world.

    May I make another suggestion?  WE vote him out of office come Nov., tell him
    we’ve made first contact with the Andromeda galaxy and need him to be  the world’s ambassador to the universe.

    As long as WE don’t let BO sneak a fence post aboard his
    shuttle to the stars, he’ll never bother us again.

    Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?  I just gave these jokers a taste of Saul’s
    Rule #5.

    • LS as guest

      A twinge of sadness and regret?  A twinge?  Deep agonizing spasms of pain would better describe it.

      • OldPat

         LS, to each his own, I guess.  I believe Oct 5th was just the end of the beginning, and my feelings were tempered by that belief.

        By their life choices, this Alaskan couple have come to represent the best of what we can be as a people;  they truly have become our Moral Compass – but, they are only human.  They bleed when cut, they feel, they make mistakes occasionally; they are not superheroes.

        They can inspire us, they can fight by our side, but only WE the PEOPLE can wage and win the war we fight.

        It will take a peaceful populist uprising the likes of which our nation has never seen for us to succeed.  Our Moral Compass knows this and is waiting on WE the PEOPLE to join them so that WE may reclaim our freedom from our PPC.

        Since I am not a ‘spring chicken’ anymore, my feelings of sadness and regret center around whether or not I will live long enough to be a part of this fight, but so far so good.

        • LS as guest

          I’d say your stoicism should bode well for your longevity–and hence availability for the fight, OldPat.

  • blackbird

    Good afternoon everyone. Excellent news round up Firelight. I would like to add to Akabosan List, Mrs. Coulter, Ms. hrh40, Ms. Nancy6, Ms. Drake, Ms. Ross, you Mama Grizzlies Rock!!!.

    If there is only one post I could ever read it would be thank you very much Firelight for this addition. There is nothing in this world or beyond like a Mother’s Love.

    • Akabosan

      Thank you for the update, Habusan,

      I was hoping someone would come along and add to the list to recognize more of the ladies who grace these pages.


    • poljunkie

      and me!!!

  • blackbird

    A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of little boy.

    “Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies.”

    “Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.”

    The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.

    “I’ve got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?”

    “Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. “Here, Dolly!” he called.

    Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

    The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.

    Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up…

    “I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said, “Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.”

    With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.

    In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

    Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.”

    With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

    “How much?” asked the little boy. “No charge,” answered the farmer, “There’s no charge for love.”

    The world is full of people who need someone who understands.

    • poljunkie

      Love it!!!

      Blackbird are you in Barbados per your profile? Do you know anything of the Sandylane Resort? 

      • blackbird

         yes, Sandy Lane is in holetown on the west coast, it is a 5 stat resort with villas and a world class golf course. The resort and villas are off the road on the beach obscured by trees very private. I am on the south coast near sandy beach.

        • poljunkie

          Lucky you, living on Barbados! Do you recommend it? We are contemplating SL ? Or a few other choices? Jumby Bay in Antigua? Little Dix BayBVI , we are still looking at other places as well…- Its been a tough couple of years and we are finally going on vacation!!! WOOO hooo

          • blackbird

             Well poljunkie, I recommend Barbados :-) you must defiantly let me know where you decide on, we will have to get together if Barbados, I would love to meet you and your family.

            • poljunkie

              If we make it, I will let you know!

          • blackbird

             Yes Sandylane is an excellent hotel/resort, I highly recommend it, imo it’s the best on the Island, you will be pampered like a movie star, that’s where they go to when visiting, actually the West Coast where the Hotel is located is where the rich and famous come to live or getaway.

            • poljunkie

              Well, we’re no movie stars! Just want an awesome beach, some good food- and to be left alone! ( dont even want to be pampered, aside from the food part)…

              OH and did I mention the music, naturally we’ll bring our own!

              • blackbird

                I was looking at the 3 luxury resorts you mentioned poljunkie, as far as the beaches goes they are no difference between them and the food will be all excellent, as for the most peaceful relaxation to be honest I will go with Jumby Bay in Antigua.

                Jumby Bay ~
                Sandy Lane ~
                Rosewood Little Dix Bay ~

                • poljunkie

                  Thats funny BlackBird, we were really seriously thinking of Jumby Bay. The room with the outdoor bathroom looks spectacular!
                  Thanks for the input. We are really excited to get away!!!

                  Heres a little ditty for this afternoon! ( all time favorite)

                • blackbird

                  I am excited just hearing you talk about it poljunkie :-)

                  That’s a beautiful song, I have not heard that one before, thanks.

                • poljunkie

                  Lynyrd skynyrd is my all time favorite band. Seen ’em well over 50 times since the 70’s. Southern rock at it’s finest!!

  • Emily Baxter

    I’m back! And better than ever! 😉 (Well, actually, I wasn’t that bad in the first place *wink*)

    I need advice. Stat. It’s crucial. If I don’t have this, I will DIE!

    –Where is the best place to get a Palin shirt?

    I know, GASP! I don’t have one! I should have one! I also need to stop using exclamation points! (Nah)

    I need/needed a break. Both past and present tense because I’m taking a step back and realizing my priorities. After all, student by day, conservative warrior princess by night! (after the homework)

    Have a good Sunday y’all! :)

    EDIT–Go like my Facebook page! GO! It’s this link:

    • Firelight

      Hi Emily!

      Great to see you again.

      There are a few places to get Palin shirts but this is the most reliable.

    • Akabosan

      Hi Miss Emily it is nice to see you back.

      I hope you are having a wonder-filled weekend.


  • Guest

    I don’t use Twitter but maybe some that do, can get the reminders about “The Undefeated” out there- maybe ue a Palin hashtag or something common. I did email local Tea party sites to give them a heads up about it. It doesn’t have the press that this HBO junk is getting.

  • John_Frank

    In Thursday’s Hannity interview, Governor Palin made a comment about Obama, as an acolyte of Bell, wanting to take America back to the pre-civil war era.

    As predicated, this caused some secular socialists to go nuts.

    Dan Riehl has a good post on his personal blog rebutting the attack:

    Sarah Palin Does It Again With Civil War Reference

    P.S. Firelight, thanks for your great news round up.

    • Happy_Miser

      I got a little bit worried when I heard her say that.  But then I went back to the Constitution, where I read the 14th Amendment, first clause:

      “1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

      That amendment was a very direct result of our Civil War.  Palin was correct.  Any attempt to introduce any test other than “citizens” to deny any attempt “to abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens” is a regression to the pre-Civil War era and potentially opens a Pandora’s Box that was expressly closed and sealed by this Constitutional provision.  This is a messy issue but she fundamentally got it right, as did the SCOTUS in Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka.  Separate is not equal.  E Pluribus Unum.

      I should make a caveat here — I am not sure of the degree to which Bell might have argued otherwise or the degree to which our President might support Bell’s view. I based the above on a very cursory review of those views and facts and am relying on Palin’s characterization of those views and facts as being essentailly correct.

      • John_Frank

        I strongly encourage people to read Rhiel’s blog post, along with the material he references in support.

        Also people will want to read:

        Derrick Bell and Eric Holder’s ‘Nation of Cowards’

        The Vetting: Obama’s Supreme Court and Critical Race Theory

        Obama Assigned Reading: Bell Says Whites Might Enslave Blacks

        Report: Derrick Bell Visited White House Twice In 2010

        Derrick Bell: Liberal Whites Are Oppressors

        Folks, by understanding what influences Obama and how these influences are reflected in his political agenda, this will make us better able to explain the harm that he has caused to date and why we must defeat Obama and his political supporters in the fall.

        • poljunkie

          John- President Obamas worldview
          is the polar opposite of what we (my family) and I feel is right.


          We’re nobodies in particular, but we feel like our great nation is beginning
          to wither on the vine, and if we don’t take the necessary steps to reclaim the
          White House in November, we are going to be on an irreversible path to ruin….or
          at the very least… one that will take decades to repair. 

        • Happy_Miser

          Thanks.  Obviously, there is a lot of background out there on this, and it’s hard to sift through it all so I appreciate the suggestions. I did a quick read on them and here’s my thoughts.

          Fundamentally, there seems to be a conflict between (1) creating “cantons” of citizens — based on wealth, skin-color, faith, whatever — and (2) a strict reading, both literally and historically, of the 14th Amendment, which is to my mind to create a unitary concept of “citizen” as a physical person, not a physical person that is simultaneously ascribed to some “canton” or “estate” other class of citizenship.  My sense of this is that Bell (and, somewhat more worrisomely, Kagan, per one of your links) belongs to the former camp, while Palin to the latter.  It seems reasonable to presume that Obama, certainly for most of his adult life, is in the former camp as well (his own autobiography certainly supports that view).

          In this sense I am also in the Palin camp.  Especially since the very idea of “race” is very problematic to me, even more so when the only seeming definition of it is melanin content in skin!  We have come so far in the right direction on this, though I recognize that all sorts of prejudices and bigotries continue to exist with truly harmful consequences.  That is bad, but I don’t think the proper remedy is to ditch the e pluribus unum principle for cantons.  The state, in our system, cannot legislate personal beliefs, no matter how stupid or evil, on the one hand, or reasoned and good, on the other, such beliefs may be. It should, however, implement policy and enact laws based on good and reasoned beliefs (obviously, a lot of room for argument there — which is good and is called democracy).

          In fact, I think, as I believe Palin intended to imply, such a remedy will tend rather to make things worse.  The best remedy is to rely on, as she puts it, “free men and free markets,” constrained, of course, by reasonable and coherent regulation by the state to protect and enhance the commons and, as it were, promote the general welfare and other Constituionally enumerated things.

          Outside of politics, in what you could perhaps call the realm of moral suasion, it also falls on all of us, as people of good will, in our private spheres, to reject and root out racism in all of its pernicious forms.  I would never have the good opinion I have of Gov. Palin were I to believe for a moment that she wouldn’t agree with this last statement.

          If she ever gets another chance to answer a question about her least favorite SCOTUS decisions, I hope she makes sure to add Plessy v Ferguson and Dred Scott.

    • blackbird

      Dan’s article is an excellent read, thanks for the link John.

      “…this is classic Sarah Palin. She’s not only insightful and correct, she tosses the self-professed elites a bone they can’t resist embarrassing themselves over by taking it up, however blind they may be…”

      • Bill589

        One more time. Who should be the Republican nominee?
        How about the one that can play the LSM like Eddie Van Halen.

        No. The GOPe have us with choices that a good week with the press means they didn’t say anything wrong and/or stayed under the LSM’s radar and avoided attacks.

        Sarah Palin is in-the-Left’s-faces brave.  She take’s the fight to her opponents, and clobbers them.

        She is the obvious choice to beat Obama and begin restoration.


        • blackbird

          Hi Bill, you know the expression “too close to the forest to see the trees” well with that Hannity interview I am starting to step back, seeing the bigger picture of how the Governor’s presence and devastating impact to the liberal and socialist agenda has impacted on the discussion of America.

          I agree Bill, Sarah is fearless in defending the Republic, taking the fight right to these cowards, God Bless Sarah Palin and all who support and defend her.

    • Bill589

      Commented something like this earlier at C4P.

      Too often to be merely luck:

      Death Panel. Media says she is wrong.
      But she is right. SP: 1 – LSM: 0
      Party like it’s 1773. Media says she is wrong.
      But she is right. SP: 2 – LSM: 0
      Blood libel. Media says she is wrong.
      But she is right. SP: 3 – LSM: 0
      Revere warned British too. Media says she is wrong.
      But she is right. SP: 4 – LSM: 0

      I know I’m missing some, and now I bet it’s closer to SP:20 – LSM: 0

    … and the GOPe wants to put up Romney as the nominee?

    • cookboy

      Stupid cant be fixed, but it can be sent packing.

  • Bill589

    Our country has an ailment, and Sarah Palin is the cure.

    • Cookboy

      Actually, we are the cure. It’s that Sarah is one of us that gave rise to c4P, P4A, and hundreds of similar sites. Never discount what you can do where you are.

    • grizzlyrising

      True.  It also reminds me of that hilarious cowbell sketch from years ago.  Walken says: “I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!”

  • Akabosan

    The blonde woman in the video clip by Jake Tapper says the disagreement is about “fairness.”

    I thought the Breitbart people and Sarahpac were relating not to fairness, but dishonesty, veracity, accuracy, and untruths of the movie.

    The TRUTH will prevail.

    I remember when I lived in the cold country and sometimes upon encountering a slick patch of ice would just slightly lose my balance and the harder I swung my arms and shifted my hips (probably some of the best dancing moves I ever had) the closer I was to falling.  Just the first fear was falling down.  The second and more profound fear was that the ice might break when I fell, and that I might be in not only deep, but cold…  cold water.  The so called progressives, the left in this country seems to be flailing like that now.  Let them flail, fail and fall.


  • Akabosan

    Finally for me this weekend, and it relates to my previous post here about a half hour ago, I believe we many times spend too much time on negatives.  Many people on “our side” have spent a lot of time defending Mrs. Palin and debunking some new fiction on HBO.

    I say we can better spend our time and energy looking forward and being Here, Now.  The only time we can do anything about is right now, and the only place from which we can act is here,

    Let us focus our energy on TRUTH.  Let us give our energy to truth and grace and love.

    In Philippians, Paul says it best when he says:  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
