This woman’s fatuous character is both hilarious and pitiful…

TPM LiveWire

Sarah Palin probably meant “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” when, during a speech at the 2014 Values Voter Summit on Friday, she said there’s a lack of truth coming out of “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

The comments came during a speech Friday at the Values Voter Summit. Palin was describing how conservatives shouldn’t retreat when they’re accused of being racist. Palin said “truth is an endangered species” at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

In the same speech Palin said she, like many people, rarely wear jewelry in Alaska where people are more often “out chopping wood or butchering a moose.”

Maher: If Palin thinks the Pope is too liberal, ‘wait until she sees what Jesus has been saying’

Bill Maher says Obama lied on ACA [YouTube]

Bill Maher – 11-15-2013

I watched this hilarious Bill Maher segment via my DVR this morning.  Enjoy.

The Raw Story

On Real Time tonight, Bill Maher “documented” the Twitter war between Sarah Palin and Pope Francis.

Earlier this week, Palin attacked the Pope, saying “he’s had some statements that sound to me kind of liberal. He’s taken me aback.”

“Well,” Maher continued, “if she thinks Pope Francis is liberal, wait until she sees what Jesus has been saying.”

He then presented a series of tweets he claimed each had sent in the past week, beginning with one from Palin:

“Maybe spoutin’ those liberal values works over there in Vatica. But real Americans don’t want our popes palling around with atheists.”

“Dear Sister,” Maher’s Pope replied, “how about a little more silent meditation from you? #AmIRightPeople?”

After his Pope informed Palin that his birth name is “Jorge,” Maher claimed Palin replied, “Jorge? Christ, the Mexicans really ARE taking over.”

“I’m beginning to think God should’ve used a little less of Adam’s rib on you and a little more of his brains,” Maher had his Pope replied.

“Bring back Pope Benedict!” Palin demanded, to which Maher’s Pope replied, “You WOULD prefer the one who quite while in office.”

Fmr. McCain Strategist Blasts Sarah Palin’s ‘Asininity’ on Obamacare

Mediaite

Sarah Palin jumped into the “defund Obamacare” fray this week with a full defense of Ted Cruz‘s efforts to defund the health care law by any means necessary. On Hardball Monday, former McCain 2008 campaign strategist Steve Schmidt said that Republicans need to wash themselves of this “asininity.”

Chris Matthews couldn’t help but bring up Schmidt’s role in bringing Palin to the national stage, likening it to a “Frankenstein’s monster” scenario. He asked Schmidt about Palin’s blatant threats to the GOP establishment over Obamacare.

Schmidt said for too long “this wing of the party [has been] running roughshod” for years, trying to “purge moderates,” and he said the GOP finally needs to take a stand.

“We need Republicans, whether they’re running for president, whether they’re the leadership of the Congress, to stand up against a lot of this asininity.”

He declared that moderates need to take “conservatism’s good name back from the freakshow that’s been running wild for four years,” admitting he has “deep regret” for giving Palin her first-ever national platform.

Ted Cruz Praises Sarah Palin On Fox For ‘Fearlessness’: Helped GOP Discover ‘A Backbone’

One of the right-wing blogs called the Fox News program in question a “Trifecta of Awesome”.  To that I say, “I think not!”

Mediaite

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made her first appearance on Fox News on Monday after being resigned as a contributor with the network. Sitting down with the hosts of Fox & Friends, Palin questioned Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) about the revelations surrounding the National Security Agency’s communications monitoring regime. During that interview, Cruz praised Palin for serving as an example to conservative politicians and the “fearlessness” with which she has “advocated conservative principles.”

Palin recently told a crowd in Washington that she wished the federal government would spend some time on “cruise control… Ted Cruz control.” She clarified that what she meant was that she hopes his fellow senatorial colleagues would “let him speak.”

“I certainly think it would help if we got back to the principles our county was founded on,” Cruz replied.

Cruz said that he is witnessing a more robust anti-establishment sentiment in Congress and commended Palin on setting an example for others to follow in that regard. He said to Palin that he “the fearlessness with which you’ve advocated conservative principles.” Cruz added that it was likely Palin’s example has helped some Republicans who have “magically discovered a backbone.”

Turning to the NSA scandal, Cruz said that he was concerned about those revelations but urged that the public “not rush to judgment about the entire program.”

“Part of the problem is that we’ve seen a pattern from the Obama administration – whether it’s the IRS, whether it’s targeting journalists, whether it’s Benghazi – of a willingness to use the machinery of government to implement political and partisan ends, and then to mislead the American people about it,” Cruz said.

Cruz chided the administration for claiming that the Congress was briefed on the NSA programs. He said that only the intelligence committees were fully informed.

Sarah Palin challenges Obama to debate

I try to ignore this really crazy lady, but just had to share this with everyone…

The Hill

Sarah Palin shot back at the Obama reelection campaign this week after it used footage of her in a fundraising video.

“I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s ‘enemy of the week’ if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about,” Palin wrote in a note on her Facebook page, posted late Monday. Palin was responding to a Web video fundraising for Obama that uses recent footage of Palin criticizing the president.

Palin also offered a challenge to Obama.

“I’m willing and free to discuss these issues with the President anywhere, anytime,” Palin wrote.

The Obama campaign released a video on Friday that calls out Palin by name. It charges: “Sarah Palin and the far right say President Obama will bring back racial discrimination … against white people.”

Palin said it is an example of Obama’s “diversionary tactics” that “shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed.”

She proposed that Obama could also debate any of “the four patriots currently running for the GOP nomination” — Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum or Ron Paul — on the issues.

The campaign video uses footage of a Fox News appearance where Palin, discussing Obama’s college relationship with prominent Harvard Professor Derrick Bell, accused Obama of following “radical” philosophies that hearken back to an before the Civil War “when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal.”

The campaign video strongly condemns Palin for the assertion.

“These attacks are wrong and dangerous. If you’re tired of it, do something: Donate to the two term fund,” the video reads.

Palin called the “absurd new attack” ad “heavily edited” but “quite telling.”

Reaffirming the comments she had made on Fox News, Palin also encouraged her readers and the media to re-open a discussion about “Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas.”

The video of Obama introducing Bell in 1991 prompted a controversy among some conservatives because Bell, who was the first black tenured Harvard Law School professor, also helped initiate the academic discipline of Critical Race Theory.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, is a Fox News contributor.

Tripp Palin Gay Slur: Bristol’s Son Calls Aunt Willow A ‘Fa**ot’ On Reality Show

Tripp Palin BristolIt appears Bristol Palin might be saying too much around her three-year old son Tripp…

The Huffington Post

The Palins have never been known for being particularly gay-friendly – and unfortunately, it seems as if the youngest member of the family is following in the footsteps of his elders.

A newly-released clip from the Lifetime reality series “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” shows Tripp Palin uttering a homophobic slur when mom Bristol and aunt Willow won’t let him visit the swimming pool.

The Palin sisters gasp, and then giggle, when three-year-old Tripp’s temper tantrum culminates in the tot calling his aunt a “faggot.”

Though Bristol does confess that she’s “doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp…I know he’s going to continue to push the boundaries,” her son’s behavior doesn’t seem too out of step, given his family’s history of anti-gay activity. In 2010, Willow sparked controversy when she fired off at a classmate on Facebook, referring to him “so gay” and “such a faggot.”

Perhaps Sarah Palin’s grandson would be better served by taking notes from dad Levi Johnston, who in 2009 embraced his gay icon status on “The Joy Behar Show” following his steamy spread in Playgirl magazine.

A Depressed Fox News Revives Sarah Palin’s Pathetic Death Panel Lies

I wonder why no one at Fox News is talking about the “death panel” that Mitt Romney and  Rep. Paul Ryan are presiding over?  Ryan’s budget, which Romney sanctions, is truly a death panel by taking away Medicare for the elderly.  Not to mention Medicaid and Food Stamp cuts for the poor.  The result of such draconian action (all in the name of giving the rich their tax cuts and paying for it off the backs of those who need the benefits most.)

By the way, the majority of recipients on food stamps and Medicaid are children.

Romney Budget Proposals Would Require Massive Cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, and Other Programs

Politicus

As we await the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act, conservatives are doing all in their power to smear it in hopes of further contaminating reform based on individual mandates that was theirs before it was Obama’s.

Who better than the PR arm of the Republican Party — aka, Fox News — to double down on a tired cliché of a lie, one that won Lie of the Year for 2009? Yes, Death Panels are back in vogue for the armchair patriots at Fox.

Death Panels weren’t only the Lie of the Year in 2009, but they were also a still unreported confession on Sarah Palin’s part.

Watch here as Kilmeade dips his 2012 toes in the humiliating, stale Palin, from the June 25 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends via Media Matters.

There are no Death Panels and pretty much everyone knows it now, save for the depressed puppets at Fox, who are so desperate for a smear that they’ve rustled up this dusty Palin relic.

The irony of Death Panels being pushed by former Governor Sarah Palin is so tea party, because Palin was in charge of the real Alaska death panels where 250 people died waiting for care due to the utter incompetence of the Palin administration. The evil feds had to step in and shut her down. Naturally, this failure fueled Palin’s willingness to project her own bitter failings onto her “rival” of 2008.

On Friday, August 7th, 2009, just weeks after Palin had been notified of the federally mandated shut-down in her own state, along with the lawsuits filed against her administration, Sarah Palin wrote from her Facebook bunker:

“And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Yes, the sick, the elderly and the disabled did suffer under Palin. Sadly, 250 of them died waiting to be processed as “worthy” of care.

Sarah Palin’s ‘oddly charming’ Today show appearance

First of all I’m still trying to get over the fact that Sarah Palin was participating with the “lamestream media”!

The Week

Mama Grizzly makes her much-hyped debut as co-host of the morning show juggernaut, impressing critics with her poise, energy, and willingness to laugh at herself

Sarah Palin joined the "lamestream media" on Tuesday as guest host of the "Today" show, impressing critics by poking fun at her 2008 struggle to name her favorite newspapers.

Sarah Palin joined the “lamestream media” on Tuesday as guest host of the “Today” show, impressing critics by poking fun at her 2008 struggle to name her favorite newspapers.

Best Opinion:  Newsday, Politico, Atlantic

Sarah Palin’s one-day stint as co-host of the Today show was billed as a showdown of sortsbetween the former vice presidential nominee and Katie Couric, the interviewer who caused Palin endless embarrassment during the ’08 campaign and who was co-hosting rival morning show Good Morning Americaon Tuesday. Sorry, Katie: Palin may have won this round, with critics hailing her performance as “oddly charming,” “magnetic,” and “poised.” During her Todaycameo, Palin predictably blasted President Obama, interviewed Tori Spelling, and weighed in on pop culture issues like Oprah Winfrey’s failing OWN network, Ashton Kutcher’s casting as Steve Jobs, and Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy weight gain. (Watch a video below.) Was her appearance as charming as critics suggest?

Palin was terrific: This was a “slam dunk for Palin,” says Verne Gay at Newsday. She shined with a “natural, born-to-camera ease;” appeared “poised, relaxed (more or less), and confident” next to her more seasoned co-hosts; and peppered the show with just the right amount of political savvy to appease her supporters. It certainly didn’t hurt that she essentially “got a wonderful free ride for two hours,” often serving less as a traditional co-host and more as an honored guest who was encouraged to enjoy herself and crack wise on pop culture.
“Sarah Palin on Today show was a slam dunk”

And she had the right attitude: Palin’s self-deprecating humor stole the show, say MJ Lee and Tim Mak at Politico. In her first shot on set, Palin perused a pile of newspapers, while she was later shown in her dressing room scribbling notes on the back of her hand — tongue-in-cheek nods to two of her most famous political gaffes. Palin later drew roars of laughter when she cracked that a lady on the street saw her entering 30 Rock and giddily told her husband, “Oh honey, I told you, Tina Fey is here.” She played nearly the entire appearance for laughs at her own expense, which was a smart move for the polarizing political star.
“Sarah Palin pokes fun at herself on Today

But the whole thing was so strange: Apparently, “mainstream television will happily subject itself to endless abuse in pursuit of ratings,” says David A. Graham at The Atlantic. How else does one explain the “bizarre spectacle” of Sarah Palin on Today? During her interview with Lauer, Palin blasted the “lamestream media.” The irony that she was voicing these sentiments “while co-hosting a show on one of the Big Three networks” was apparentlly lost on her — leading Lauer to quip that her presence “technically makes you a part of the lamestream media.”

Sarah Palin Questions Obama White House Holiday Card (UPDATED!)

So, does this mean Sarah Palin is considering an independent run for President?  After all, we stopped hearing from her when she announced that she would not run in the Republican primaries.  Last week there were rumblings about Palin possibly running as an independent.

It’s obvious that Palin loves attention, especially when she is getting ready to fire up her PAC again.

Otherwise, what is her problem with the Obama Christmas card again?  Did I miss something?  Her rant is a non-issue in my opinion.

The Huffington Post

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R) attacked the White House holiday card in an article on Fox News Radio.

The front of the card shows the Obamas’ dog, Bo, sitting in a very Christmas-like setting, with a fireplace decorated with wreaths and red ribbons, and a table with a poinsettia plant and presents. “From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season,” reads the inside of the card, which is signed by the Obamas (including Bo).

Palin characterized the card as “odd”:

“It’s odd,” she said, wondering why the president’s Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like ‘family, faith and freedom.’””Even stranger than that was his first year in office when the Christmas ornaments included Chairman Mao,” Palin said. “People had to ask that it be removed because it was offensive.”

Palin was referring to when a right-wing blog posted a grainy photo, allegedly of an ornament on the White House Christmas tree in 2009 showing a reproduction of Andy Warhol’s “Mao” portrait. Media Matters reported that the tree was decorated by community groups, not the White House.

Palin said a majority of Americans prefer “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.” With regard to the card, she added, “It’s just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House.”

“I go on the offense like most Americans do and say ‘No, we’ll have Christ back in Christmas and hopefully it won’t offend you,’” said Palin in a November 2010 Fox News appearance.

Palin fueled speculation on her future plans Monday after previously saying she would not run for the 2012 GOP nomination for president. “It’s not too late for folks to jump in,” she said on Fox Business Network. “Who knows what will happen in the future.”

Mother Jones

Update: But since Fox News has brought up the subject of Christmas cards, perhaps we should take a look at the official Fox Business Network Christmas card this holiday season. Here’s one, via New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter:

That’s a pair of foxes roasting the NBC peacock over an open fire—which, for you non-Christians out there, is an oft-overlooked aspect of the of the story of the first Christmas. And via reader Jason Sparks, take a look at Ronald Reagan’s White House Christmas cards. They’re nearly identical to Obama’s, except there’s no puppy. “Family, faith, and freedom” are, presumably, represented by the antique furniture, fireplaces, and tacky lighting.
