Skeet Shooting Tuesday





Good Morning

Yeah, I don’t believe it either.

Imagine the media reaction if Palin had claimed an equally improbable hobby. Those of us who have followed the Governor long enough know that the media has questioned everything from her ability to shoot a rifle to if she is a “real” runner. Yet Obama can claim to shoot skeet “all the time” and the press swallows it whole.

Unbelievable.

Speaking of the press, I have been trolling around the Internet (I’ll not give links and up their traffic) and it seems the plan is to repeat the lie that Palin was let go from Fox rather than that she turned down a contract renewal. Soon, this lie will be repeated as fact. I have read a few places that she was offered a contract but it was a “fraction” of the one she had previously. They, of course, give no source on this information that I doubt anyone who actually knows would make public. Some in the media seem to be just as pleased to make it seem that Palin is so unimportant that she is now “cheap”.

Yeah, right. I’ll admit that the relationship between Palin and Fox has seemed especially rocky since the GOP Convention and her appearances have been sporadic, but she is still a valuable ratings draw. So I call bull crap on all the no contract/cheap contract lies.

I also read a piece at the Washington Post….yeah, I’m trolling real low…..by Chris Cillizza that had such a large number of lies I lost count. He has declared her dead….to everyone. I hope and think it would be beneficial for her to run and win the Alaska Senate seat. Many disagree with me on this point. I feel she would do a great job, believe that due to her resignation she needs to run and win another office before a POTUS run is possible and would love for jerks like Cillizza to have to eat his words when he calls her Senator Palin.

Call me petty.

It crossed my mind to research skeet shooting and do an informative write up on the sport. I got distracted when I binged some info and found out that skeet can be a mixed alcoholic drink as well as a slang term for a sexual act. After that I thought I’d better just abandon the whole idea……who knew? I’ve never shot skeet in my life. We just shoot plywood, milk jugs filled with water…..that kind of stuff, on the rare occasions I have time to even shoot.

So there you have it!

Have a great day.

 

News:

Someone is channeling her inner kicka** Alaskan self.

Wow! She’s in the hospital, since late last week? She must have ObamaCare!

Because the world is such a safe place.

So they will be armed and we won’t be.

True Colors shining through.

Because he knows unless Johnny Football gets injured, he’s stuck on the bench.

Former wife of the founder of the New Black Panther Party. Who knew? Bet this is somehow racist.

That looks pretty “military” to me. Wonder what he’ll think when Obama takes it away?

Drill Baby Drill!

Opps!

Don’t we all wear bikinis while doing yoga?

Damn! That’s just fast!

He did run the time but it must be nice to be in the elite runner corral.

WTH?

Oh crap, let’s cut the bull and just stop ‘em at the border and give them a citizenship card.

NO!!!!!  The boy’s Troop and other Troops in our area do not allow women on camp outs. Why? These are boys who don’t need some hottie mom prancing around sweating and in a tank top at the hot as heck summer camp all week in July. Also, I have heard some of the boys just stumble out of their tents at the monthly camp outs and pee over in the woods because it is just the guys there. No, I don’t want a man who prefers other men camping with my 13 year old son any more than I want a woman camping with him. I’m sorry if that offends or is not politically correct. If women can’t camp with them then men who prefer men should not be allowed either.

Business is booming but hard.

    I said it before, Now I’ll say it again, this is the Lame Stream Media (LSM) to anyone who will listen, …. quote
    “Remember Sarah is NOT important ;-)    And we must discuss in GREAT detail how unimportant she is”

    SarahAmerica – “Our freedoms are being compromised, our common sense insulted, and our children exploited. We must be vigilant and engaged, and we must remain hopeful that a better day is coming.”

    P.S….. Thanks Speedchic for the AWESOME news round-up…. *_*

    I don’t mind at all if Sarah signs with a big media outlet or a prominent website (RealClearPolitics, Polutico, etc.) as long as she’s not tied down. Maybe she could do a weekly or monthly column of interview here or there, and then folks like us could re-Tweet and discuss.

    The mobility and flexibility of New Media is her natural home for political communication. This enables her to speak directly to America without the secret editing rooms of the MSM. Boring Obama could never do this…

  • c4pfan

    Hi.  Chuck Heath Jr posted a funny tidbit about white water rafting and a guy that they all met during Sarah Palin’s Alaska…remember ‘I love my life!’?  Yup, they became friends with Mudflap and Chuck has whitewater rafted with him again.

  • c4pfan

    The reason would probably be due to she would be the Jr Senator to Lisa M and you know which side the GOP and press would be.

    • Lipstick

       I don’t think she would be the Junior Senator to Murk. Who will everyone want to hang out with on the Senate floor? Murk or Palin?

      Palin of course.

      Who will be trying to get Palin to flank them when they want to push a proposed bill with the press around? Who will get more press there to see them….standing with Palin or Murk?

      There’s not enough popcorn to pop for watching that show…..

      • Lipstick

         I forgot to add, not necessarily along the same lines….

        in the Senate she can have been elected to another state wide election since her resignation. This puts to bed the she quit and Alaskans hate her meme that the press and everyone else will be pushing if she runs for POTUS.

        In the Senate she will have a more recent voting record. She does not have an actual voting record since she was mayor. This can put to bed the she is a radical meme. If she is able to possibly float some bills on the floor where she is working with Blue Dog Dems across the aisle, this puts to rest the she is to polarizing meme, she couldn’t work with Democrats meme.

        I see a lot to gain for repairing her image the media has destroyed by being in the Senate. Not to mention I just think she would be really good at it.

        It adds to her resume in an elected fashion. She is a former Governor who knows intimately how DC and Congress works since she served as Senator too. All pluses.

        I see very little she has to lose by being Senator.

        I know many supporters only want to think POTUS, and I would love that too. But I see no negatives in a Senate seat for her.

        Again, I don’t believe she would be Jr. Senator to Murk. She would outshine Murk easily and I believe even be put on some important committees, hopefully having to do with energy. The Jr. would be in name only and would make Murk look worse. You are the Senior yet your not leading like the Jr. is.

        I also think just the fact Palin was Governor of the state she is serving as Senator from gives her much less of a Jr. look as far as the other members are concerned.

        • LS as guest

          Hi Lipstick,

          I’m from that foreign territory known as the Blue State Northeast, and I think what you say about her holding some sort of substantive political or policy position being important for some voters is very apt here.  

          Regular GOP voters in this almost God-foresaken region need some such reassurance before they’ll feel comfortable supporting her.  We can argue about whether that should be so, but I think it just is.

          I don’t know if being an Alaskan Senator for a year before running is the answer, but it would very helpfully put her down here in the Eastern Time Zone and cheek by jowl with the dreaded MSM for any potential run-up to a presidential race.

          And I agree, the ‘junior’ status would mean squat.

          • Lipstick

            Thank you for her perspective!

            I think it is important that we look at things from the point of view of someone who is not a politico and not a Palin supporter, but just neutral about her.

            Many people just live their lives and they really don’t think about Palin at all. If she were to run they would only have the ’08 lies of the media, Tina Fay, Death Panels, and her resignation to go on.

            A recent Senate run and serving in the Senate, would do much for her….and again….I do think she can serve Alaskans well there.

            I like your statement…..”We can argue about whether that should be so, but I think it just is.”  It reminds me of the saying….just because you don’t believe it, doesn’t make it not true.

            I would love for Palin to be POTUS NOW! but she is not….she did resign and it hurt her politically in a national run. She knew the risk and took it and has done well.

            If she feels she can win the Senate seat, it would help her in many ways….she may not want it….running is a risk. If she were to lose, it would be damaging. But I don’t think she is hated in AK as the media portrays. With the right campaign and enough face time using her “it” skills…she can be successful and win.

            But she may not want it?!?!?

        • Lipstick

          I also forgot to add..

          My mind moves fast and leaves me behind sometimes…LOL

          Palin is outstanding working a crowd, one on one, making people in a full room feel like she is only focused on them.

          Everyone who meets her, rather than going on the hate the media prints, likes her, even if they disagree with her politically. We have seen this time and again where someone, famous or not, meets her and tweets and posts how nice she was, how they connected etc.

          I can see Palin working the Senate floor. Good grief, it would be a work of art. She is made for roaming the floor before and during a vote connecting, swaying, getting people on board or to stand firm against. The Senate is a very small group, she can work it easily.

          I am amazed how the same people who understand and admire how she connects with a crowd and has the “it” factor do not see how that trait and gift would allow her to be an outstandingly effective and successful Senator in my opinion.

          A strong and influential time in the Senate would prove many angles the press would take at her completely wrong during a POTUS campaign.

          That “it” she has will be magic. Those arrogant Senators will be all about Palin coming and speaking to them as they feel they are the only person on the floor she cares about. Then she moves on to her next target…..I mean person….she wants to sway to get on board with her.

          They won’t know what hit them. She would be outstanding!

          • Firelight

            I actually wouldn’t mind her in the Senate but I think Joe Miller in Alaska has already announced his intentions to run against Begich and he and Palin still keep in contact.  I think they are waiting to see what happens with the AK GOP Chair nonsense going on up there.

            I can’t see her taking Joe on in a primary since they are friends.  I would assume since they are still in touch that they have spoken about a plan for Begich’s seat and other AK political issues.

            • Lipstick

              Rats, I didn’t know that.

              I still dislike Miller after he distanced himself from Palin and wouldn’t say he thought she was qualified to be POTUS.

              She is a good friend if she is supporting him after he bailed on her.

              Rats!

  • RefudiateGOPe

    Good morning all.

    None of Governor Palin’s detractors ever show any interest in addressing Sarah’s positions on the issues.  It seems the only card they have in their hand is the ad hominem card.  They’ll tell you she’s not intelligent, they’ll tell you she’s extreme, they’ll tell you that she isn’t “intellectually curious”, they’ll tell you that she’s irrelevant, they’ll tell you that she should leave the room, but they never ever ever want to discuss how her positions on the issues are wrong.  You know why?  Two reasons-  One, they know that the majority of people agree with her. Two, if they discuss her positions on the issues, it validates her as a legitimate Conservative voice, and they sure don’t won’t to do that.

    The Roves, the Scarboroughs, the entire GOPe, and the lefties know that Sarah Palin has the ability to unite the Tea Party movement and transform it into something it’s been missing- cohesiveness.  They know that if she’s allowed to motivate the common folk and transform them from a movement into an organized political force, their gooses are cooked.  They haven’t even noticed that she’s already started brining their big dumb butts.  It won’t be long before she takes their gooses, puts them in the roasting pan and turns up the heat.

    Sarah may not re-wrap their motorhome and hit the road, but her metaphorical bus is being fueled up, loaded for bear, and it’s about to hit the road.  It won’t be long before we’re all singing, “The wheels on the bus go round and round….”

    Give me an extra squirt of butter on my popcorn and a big orange drink.

    • MaMcGriz

       Well said. I needed that.

      Here’s your butter and a fresh big orange. I’m goin’ back to the kitchen and make a big pan of cornbread so we’ll have plenty of stuffing for those geese.

      Bring it, Sarah, bring it.

    This will be my only post of the day because the freakin’ computer wouldn’t boot this morning, which means I’m 8 hours late on my coding (* gasp of despair *) .

    So FYI:

    There’s something rather unique happening at HA (I don’t think I ever seen anything like this).

    Remember the thread about Sarah leaving Fox the other day? All the posters were wondering why it wouldn’t be moved to the Top Picks column, as successful as it was. Well, as predicted, the team there let it die (ie it moved to the “vault”).

    But not the posters.

    They’re still posting on the thread even if it has disappeared from the main page.

    Did I hear someone saying: “Only Sarah”? I think I did:

    Page 22 is here (meaning 2,100 posts + page 22)

    Given the urban definition, I’m not so sure Obama is lying now…  just saying…

    So Erick Erickson is leaving CNN and heading to FOX?  puke!  And CNN is dropping the bald alien Carville along with Mary Matalin and Bill Bennett.

    This musical chairs is all so interesting but I didn’t like any of those people anyway but it appears to me that conservatives and Clinton allies are being either eliminated or marginalized and the rinos and socialists are being given free reign.

        political deck chairs on one big, massive titanic… 

    • deTocqueville1

      Almost like a Permanent Media Class too! I was going to use the letters but thought better of it.

  • AmazedOne1

    Lipstick, I agree with you about Sarah needing a solid, recent political office like the Senate. I hate to say use this as an example, but that’s how Hillary solidified herself. 

    Everyone had always known that she wanted to be president herself (even when it was her husband who was in office). But, she didn’t just run based on name recognition. Instead, she took the time to become a Senator, first. That raised her level of credibility.

    • Firelight

      True but Hillary didn’t have a long record of public office for people to look at prior to Bill being POTUS.  Gov. Palin not only has a long record, but a successful record that stands on its own and has nothing to do with Todd.

      Now having said that, I do agree that the more time that passes the more people want to see her return to some form of executive role.  I’m not saying that I feel that way, I just agree that many other people do feel that way.

      Even here in Colorado that is probably one of the most common comments I hear all the time.  People want to see her hold an office or executive position, work a regular schedule again and fulfill the term of the office or position (only out would be to run for POTUS but no other outs).  Many people were ok with her stepping down as Gov. because they understood and they thought she was going to run in 2012.  When she didn’t run in 2012, they weren’t so sure she should have stepped down and feel she should have stuck it out.  I hear it all the time, the further 2006 to 2009 is in the books of history the shorter her tenure as Gov. looks on a resume and the less weight is given to it.  She just wasn’t there long enough is what many say.  By 2016, they want to see some sort of return to an executive roll as it will have been 7 1/2 years since she was in office and by 2020 will be almost 12 years.

      As one guy told me, he said once you move out of the office and into a contract/consultant type position as your own boss and work from home on your own schedule (he works software), he said you don’t realize just how much you enjoy having control over your time, and yourself until you move back into a structured, office type role.  In his industry, he said that transition is common and many times people find that they hate the re-entry into a structured environment and formal role even if it is what they dreamed of.  He was one that said he wanted to see her hold a 9 to 5 position for a few years to make sure re-entering such a type of role was something she really wanted.  He was in no way saying she couldn’t do it, or that she wasn’t qualified.  He feels just the opposite, he would love her to run and get this country back on track.  he just wants to make sure that it is what she would really want.

      His opinion isn’t isolated, it is very common when you actually start talking to people out here.  Everyone has their own reasons, some understandable to a degree and some not so much but it is a common feeling that people feel she needs to prove that part of herself.

      Out here in Colorado, it doesn’t so much have to be an elected office, although for some that is important and would hold more weight, but for many it is just wanting to see her back in a formal leadership role with tangible measures of success so something like what DeMint is doing or possibly taking a struggling organization and turning it around would be a positive.  I don’t think just working for a group like CATO, Heritage, Susan B. Anthony or Americans For Prosperity is enough. They would want to see her in the executive role, leading the organization, showing up for work in an office day in and day out, dealing with staff and stay there until a POTUS announcement or contract fulfillment is up and that would satisfy most.

      I agree it isn’t fair but I also agree that it is, what it is…

      • senator20526

         The big problem with running and winning the senate seat in 2014, she would immediately have to start campaigning for POTUS if she had any intentions of being President, thus not being active as a sitting Senator…catch22

        • section9

          Not necessarily. Suppose she decides that 2016 isn’t for her?

        • Firelight

          Yes and that is a problem assuming she were looking at 2016.

          I’m not saying that I feel this way.  I don’t think she needs anymore experience and I have no problem with her doing what she is doing now.  

          I just find myself in the minority a lot even among grassroots people that really like Gov. Palin.  Outside the C4P/P4A bubble, this seems to be the most common point of view that I run into.

      • AmazedOne1

        LOL — A friend is considering transitioning from his government job to working for himself. Just the other day, I was telling him the same thing as you just said: the two are completely different.

        Running a business demands much more creativity, dedication, and time. Moreover, it leaves one impatient with bureaucracy. I warned him that he was very likely to be uncomfortable in his current position once he got used to making his own decisions and doing things efficiently.

        From that standpoint, what you said that people are saying makes a lot of sense. As you say, it’s not necessarily fair, but it is what it is.

      • Lipstick

        You are right, she could get the same benefits you spoke about with your friends view by being in a business CEO position.

        Perhaps working in a think tank that would require more of the 9 to 5 schedule would also be an option.

        There are many avenues to gain this advantage.

        I’ve often wondered what boards and regulators there are in place in the state of Alaska in the energy sector. Surely there are more than the one she served on?

        Perhaps even something in regard to tourism or fishing??? Perhaps some sort of oversite board? I’m just grabbing stuff that pops in my brain.

        I could see a position along those lines that is tied into the Alaska state government or industry there being appealing to her personally as well.

        She would be working in Alaska and not have to be away from family or move her family.

        Having recently considered a move to Richmond for my own family in the past 6 months with a 7th grader who REALLY doesn’t want to change schools, that would be a huge positive that Piper would not be uprooted.

      • section9

        Superbly done.

        A lot of Palin supporters do not get this about rank and file Republicans. They are sympathetic to Palin, but are more willing to give a pass to the likes of Jeb Bush and Marco because they served out their terms as Governor or State House Speaker over a sustained period of time.

        That will be important to GOP Primary voters in a future race. Palin is clean Gene, she’s got the best conservative instincts since Reagan, but ordinary voters want to see a full term under her belt, methinks.

    • MaMcGriz

       Y’all have a point, although I don’t necessarily think she needs to hold another office to get what she needs to do done.

      That said, if she were to accept a seat, the only one I think appropriate for her would be Secretary of State, and nothing less. She would no doubt be very effective in that role, despite the administration, if need be.

      • senator20526

         You can see the headline already…..Sarah “you don’t need a title to make a difference” Palin, runs for Senate seat……

      • Firelight

        I agree, personally I don’t think she needs anything more and I would prefer her to focus on building an army of Davids.  I was just making the comment that I do hear that POV a lot. 

        For me, if anything I would rather see her become President of Americans For Prosperity or a group like that because it would provide a high profile executive position that includes managing staff with the ability to get airtime via interviews on any major network as their spokesperson and the freedom to move about the country meeting with people of all ages discussing issues. 

        That is just me though.  I know everyone and their dog has an opinion on this so I don’t expect anyone to agree with me.

        • MaMcGriz

          I agree about that army of Davids, and hadn’t thought about her in a gig like you described for AFP. I can see her being really effective in a position like that.

          Heck, I think so many Americans are so eager to rally behind her that she could lead from an ice cream truck and we’d go.

    • RefudiateGOPe

       You seem to be missing the obvious.  Hillary never held an elected office.  She had no choice but to run for Senate.

      IMO, if Sarah ran for the Senate and lost, it would have a massive negative impact on her political future.  If Sarah ran for the Senate and won, she’d lose much of the bullhorn she has now.  Be careful what you wish for.

    Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes was asked why Obama does interviews with him.  His answer is incredible.

    No, I think that first of all, I think he likes 60 Minutes. It’s, you know, we have a huge audience. We have a format that suits him. It’s long. We can do twelve minutes or 24 minutes. We do a, you know, we do a good job of editing. And I’ve been doing these interviews with him since a few weeks before he declared his candidacy. So I covered him during the campaign and have kept doing it in the White House.”

    “But I think it’s a question of fairness. I, we have not, I think he knows that we’re not going to play gotcha with him, that we’re not going to go out of our way to make him look bad or stupid, and we’ll let him answer the questions.

    Thanks Lipstick. It was heartwarming and gave me a chuckle to read your comments on scouting. Reassuring that things haven’t changed much since my days and those of my boys. This whole policy change stuff is just plain stupid!

      I agree.

      I think the whole gender aggression movement has gone too far and had too many negative consequences.

      It’s become an aberrant subculture wrongly celebrated and rewarded for its malignant intrusiveness. I see it as parasitical to the victories won in past civil rights efforts. 
       

  • MaMcGriz

    Good morning all. I’m in and out ’till I’ve worked my way through today’s post in one of my favorite shades of Lipstick.

    ” she is still a valuable ratings draw. So I call bull crap on all the no contract/cheap contract lies. “

    bingo. All this trash talk sounds like a peremptory attempt to lower their competitors’ coming harvests of the Palin Presence. It’s how they operate.

    ” would love for jerks like Cillizza to have to eat his words when he calls her Senator Palin. “

    Let’s bear in mind how it works on deals like this….everything they sling at her will bounce off and hit them in their soft parts at some point while she emerges unscathed and doubly blessed. It’s a promise we’ve seen work in her life again and again.

    “I binged some info and found out that skeet can be a mixed alcoholic drink as well as a slang term for a sexual act. “

    Maybe this helps put barky’s improbable sounding hobby pursuits into better context for us.

    Wish all of these people wanting the Gov to run for another stupid political office before Pres would go back and read the Constitution……………. the Founding Fathers did NOT want a permanent political class – they wanted ordinary Americans to serve a term or two in government as a servant of the people, do their time and go home and let someone else take a turn.  There should be no pensions, small salary, small staff, no special perks, and complete anniliation of the ‘politican’ as a career…………………… no one needs to spend time in previous political positions unless they were brief…………. sorry, but I am tired of PPC – it’s time to get  rid of them

    My son’s an adult Eagle Scout now, but when he was younger, our church’s Troop had been together since we were Cubs. So we had been camping as families throughout the early years. To continue that connection, in Boy Scouts, we had an annual camp out where each family had their own tent. BUT, women didn’t go on the other outings or to summer camp.

    Once, we had trouble because a new Cub joined and the mom was the hottie type. Our poor Cub master and his wife were not prepared to talk to her. Instead, two of us women took her aside and gently talked about appropriate attire around the boys. Poor thing really was broken up over her divorce and seeking the wrong kind of attention. Luckily, she appreciated our encouragement and support.

    All that to say — there is NO way I’d want a gay man camping with scouts.

      Congratulations to your son!

      The boy is a Star and will be Life in March. He is already thinking about his Eagle Project, he is pretty motivated about it.

      He loves scouting and has learned so much. I am disappointed the BSA would even consider this. They have been fighting for years to prevent gays and atheists from joining and have spent much money in the courts to fight. They won with the courts saying since they are a private group that gets no government help, they can set their own joining requirements.

      Why they are looking to wave the white flag is beyond me.

      I am hoping this is just a very large trial balloon they are floating to see how the scouting community reacts.

      If last night’s Troop meeting is any indication, it is an eventful day at the BSA headquarters.

      I do take comfort in that if they do allow it, in my small, red conservative town and the boys Troop, I can’t see it affecting him and his experience, but what about my grandson (someday!) I am sure the boy will take his boy to scouts and want it to be there for him as well.

    “Former wife of the founder of the New Black Panther Party. Who knew? Bet this is somehow racist.”

    The most glaringly racist thing about this piece is covering the raced-based appeal request while failing to disclose the races of her victims.

    I hope they carry out her sentence as scheduled.

    “That looks pretty “military” to me. Wonder what he’ll think when Obama takes it away?”

    Wait..let me see if I got this right: this story is about brother’s getting vandalized for his 2nd Amendment i.e. presumably by his own, and not because he idolizes a political chimera in tasteless assaults on the visual landscape?

    Was this their idea of a connect the dots story with no relevant information?

    Maybe next he can make a mural of the big dead elephant in the room down there in that neighborhood.

    And I’ll bet you a berry pie barky will never take this guy’s gun. Yours, yes. But his, no.

    Interesting views on whether Palin should run for some elective office prior to a Presidential campaign. I do not think she should and I don’t believe she will and there are a number of very good reasons why I do not expect it to happen.

    1.  She would effectively remove herself from the 1016 Presidential primary campaign if she was either appointed or ran in 2014. None of us would want that.

    2.  She would be much more confined in DC than she is now and would therefore be limited in getting out around the country expanding the constitutional conservative base, rallying the troops, raising spirits and supporting good candidates. The flip side corollary is that if she were in the Senate, every time she went out to speak or campaign she would be called a ‘prima donna’, self-promoter, gad fly, etc., etc.

    3.  She needs to remain completely distanced from the DC, crony capitalist PPC swamp to maintain her credibility as a reformer and allow her to continue to expostulate her views on ‘big government’ throughout America and even around the world.

    4.  As a Senator she would of necessity be engaged in policy and legislative compromise before it is desirable to do so (i.e. when she is President).

    5.  Her voice in DC would be 1 of 100 (plus) and she would be marginalizednby the LSM and her opponents.

    6.  Logistically and tactically running a Senate campaign would permit her opponents in both parties to concentrate funds and resources to ensure her defeat in the selected state. When she runs as President, resources and funds will be spread over the whole country wide campaign, which will, because of her message and broad appeal, put many more marginally blue states in play for the Republicans.     

    She does not need more experience executive or otherwise. She has far more government experience than Hillary and we don’t even need to reference Barky. We are looking at 11 years in Wasilla, her time in the Oil and Gas executiveship and as Governor. She has a sterling record. Additionally since leaving office she has proven to be an accomplished executive in making and managing money as well as her career, while no doubt guiding her children in doing the same.

    I could go on and expound but I won’t. I just ask people to reflect on the foregoing.

       I would also add that if she were elected to the Senate with the view toward a run for the presidency, it would likely be necessary for her to resign her Senate seat before her term was out.

      The vultures, lap dogs and bad guys would be on that like white on rice with their ‘quitter meme.’

    Afternoon All!

    So I DVR’d a show on ABC last week called “The Taste” and finally got around to watching it last night.  Tonight is another episode if you are free and would prefer to watch snotty know-it-all chefs tell minions their food sucks versus watching a blowhard like BOR.  I’ll be honest, it was different and I got a bit hooked.  Not because of the judges, more because it was nice to see everyday cooks (not all professional chefs) get a chance to participate and win over the judges. 

    Anywhoo….what’s my point?  The show actually reminds me of a combination of the GOPe and their treatment of Sarah Palin and Obama’s America.

    Anyone familar with Anthony Bourdain?  He is a smug unlikeable chef who thinks he is an expert on all things food.  Some women swoon over him, others like myself think he is just a jag.  Remind you of anyone in politics?  The other judges consist of a snotty northeast type guy who thinks he is an expert on everything (Chris Matthews type), a British more likeable woman (she use to have a show on The Food Network a few years ago and the only person on the panel that I can somewhat relate to because she seems down-to-earth), and a French guy who barely speaks any English.   I guess there weren’t any American chefs available in our country for a show in the USA so we had to go all the way to France to scoop up this douche.  The lib agenda lives on…

    The premise of the show – guest chefs and everyday cooks get one chance to make a dish for the judges.  They place a portion of their dish on this big ‘ol spoon for one blind taste test.  The judges vote if they want the person on their team going forward just by that one taste.  They are very opinionated and are not afraid to tell someone their food was wonderful or it tasted like absolute crap.

    Isn’t this what the GOPe brand is like these days?  They sit on their thrones in their expensive suits and ties as guest judges (many are northeast elites) and one by one a bunch of everyday Americans come forward and tell them all they want them to fight for are lower taxes, less spending, less government in our lives, etc. and what do they tell us?  Um, your thoughts and ideas taste like crap. 

    I’m so looking forward to seeing what Sarah Palin has been cooking in her kitchen the last few months for the special panel of GOPe judges.  I bet she is lining up the spoons right now and can’t wait to offer up her tasty treats of sweet and savory common sense conservative principles with a dash of whoop ass.

      Thank you, sir. I just put up a short post about those numbers. :)

    The Cruz letter from earlier today makes for an interesting showdown between a Senator for the second biggest state and the Mayor of the third biggest city. I can’t remember this happening before.

    Might become bigger than the Chick-Fil-A thing, no? Has Sarah Palin, the leader of the opposition, commented on the Senator’s letter or re-Tweeted it? Has Cruz followed through with “action” as Obama might call it?

    At this time in history is Sarah Palin the most important conservative in the country? In the WORLD?

       Yep.  And I like your use of the word conservative and not Republican….

    “Sen. Graham (R-SC) has been asking for months to see transcripts of FBI iviews with Benghazi survivors, but says none have been provided.”

    (Tweet from Sharyl Attkisson)

    Attkisson is one of the best MSM reporters out there. She was the only one who covered F&F for many months last year. She should have won the Pulitzer for that reason alone. I highly recommend following her on Twitter.

    • Firelight

      I am beginning to wonder if there are any survivors.  This is just insane. These people have to be somewhere. They have to have neighbors, family, friends etc… someone, somewhere would at some point say something…
