Saradise Lost Book 3 - Chapter 5 -- Poking More Beehives with Sticks - Updated

As one commenter at one of the growing number of DailyKos posts about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's attorney, Thomas van Flein's probable opening gambit in a SLAPP suit against Alaska bloggers tersely observed:

going after bloggers for money... Hilarious !!

That might or might not be what Palin attorney van Flein and SarahPAC spokesperson Meg Stapleton are attempting, but I doubt it. I'm just reporting a "rumor."

Another rumor is that Palin's people are totally fucking clueless about what they are up against when trying to put more and more and more lipstick on this critter. Hey, Stapleton and van Flein, your critter doesn't need lipstick, it needs to back away from twitter and step into some sort of a restraint regime, preferably in compliance, but an intervention may be in order.

You could have figured it out over a week ago:

The Virgin Palin, Our Lady of Eternal Anger, gave birth to the New Jesus at some point last year — or not, who knows, and now Andrew Sullivan just cares about Iran (which is a good thing!) so we’ll never find out the truth — and ever since it has been both a Cardinal/Venial Sin and Sharia Law that no mortal shall “desecrate” an image of the Sacred One … no one but Sarah Palin herself, because Allah both allows and encourages the use of the Holy Infant as a cheap political prop as long as such cruel hackery is performed by the Virgin Palin herself.

Palin’s fury was such, when she found out some blog “on the Internet” had combined a picture of her cradling one of her Magic Babies together with a picture of her Jedi Master, some dingbat old radio talk-show clown in Alaska, that she did verily send her dumbest disciple, “Brother Meg,” to start a Jihad against the Entire Internet.

But we know what happens when a fear-and-anger crazed Snow Witch starts a vain war she can never hope to win: The Internet Strikes Back.

Which is to say, Palin basically poked a stick in the world’s largest beehive filled with cheap & tireless insanity, and the goons have unleashed a pack of Photoshop Dogs From Hell to make the most incredible collection of Sarah Palin Desecration Images in the History of Time, the end. [emphasis added by PA]

But you didn't. Meanwhile:

The Mudflats - Shannyn Moore on KBYR today - Don't Miss It! - 927 comments

These are random examples of the beehive you so fully misunderstand, as it buzzes, shares information openly.

This SLAPP threat is hilarious enough to make some of us think we might donate to HER legal fund, so you can continue to project Palin onto the national stage, as she deals with having to go through your lame designs for her future.

But that's just a rumor, Tom and Meg.

Update - Sunday at 8:00 a.m - A report from Juneau:

Although her press release on Friday said Governor Sarah Palin would attend Independence Day festivities in Juneau, she didn't show up.

The local committee charged with 50th statehood anniversary activities left a place for her to speak on their agenda for the 9 a.m. ceremony re-enacting the official raising of the 49 star flag at the Capitol, but had to replace her at the last minute with Clark Gruening, grandson of former Territorial Governor and U. S. Senator Ernest Gruening.

The Juneau Festival Committee reserved a place for her to ride in the Juneau 4th of July parade, but again, she didn't appear.

It was rumored that the Palins stayed at the Governor's Mansion last night. The mansion's lights were on, and at least a dozen people viewed the July 3rd midnight fireworks from the balcony above the Mansion's columned porch, but bystanders couldn't see who they were.

You could pay for ALL of SM's legal fees by selling tickets to Palin's depositions.

NOW that is where you get some real "theater."

It is AMAZING what people will say in a deposition not realizing for a minute what they just revealed.

Makes the whole legal drama worth it.

GOD I want to be a fly on the ceiling at Palin's depositions !

Please ! ! ! ! !

Van Flein, by releasing this on the Fourth of July, has now made Shannyn very famous! She can now have a book deal, a TV show, and a nationally syndicated radio show, all thanks to the bullying Palins. Go Shannyn! You have the talent for all those things, unlike Palin. You probably have the talent to be Governor of Alaska, Shannyn!

I've started to picture a comedic remake of "The Godfather" called "The Godmother" starring Tina Fey, set in Alaska, about a criminal queen who does good by mistake (e.g. by threatening people and bringing more attention to her own misdeeds). Maybe I should hurry up and pitch it.

Her pavlovian response is utterly amazing. Instead of walking away and retaining a shred of dignity, she can't resist the opportunity to get "down in the weeds" with petty, absurd threats.

I have to wonder about a lawyer's credentials, ALSO, who does not comprehend first amendment rights and what it means to attempt to intimidate our free press. What school of law could that possibly have emanated from?

In any case, we see Palin staying 'classy' and poking that beehive. The only one to get stung here is Sarah Palin.

Unconscious incompetence knows no bounds, this is certain.

Undoubtedly, the "other shoe" will drop the moment she no longer has power to inflict vindictive threats and actions against her own employees.

Remember those pre-signed letters of resignation (is Alaska a democracy...just wondering) she had them all sign.

Crying about "socialism" is nothing compared to acting out a dictatorship.

Moore will have Palin and Van Flein to thank as her star rises and she rakes in millions off their ineptitude.

You go, girl! Moore became the hero of this 4th of July celebration.

Where was Sarah during it all? AWOL

And she just tweeted again:

Critics are spinning, so hang in there as they feed false info on the right decision made as I enter last yr in office to not run again....

wouldn't want her to be gay ;-)

Blow-pop-Palin has an AP photo of Sarah, Todd, Bristol, and the two little Ts here:

So...she was there, but just ducked out of official participation?

Anonymous said...

my sources are telling me that it was the whole Levi & Tank thing that was tripping her out.

It is curious that Levi was in NYC meeting w/ publishers last week - this came out on their website July 2, hmmmm?:

"Critics are spinning, so hang in there as they feed false info on the right decision made as I enter last yr in office to not run again..."

Boy, parse that one out, will ya?

"False info on the right decision not run again...":

Is this a slam on the ADN or the major news networks, who have reported her speech verbatim in text, and broadcast her speech on video?

SPECULATION as to what she meant in that typical Palin-word-salad speech is not "false info". It's offering different "takes" on rather obscure ramblings in the hopes someone comes up with a logical explanation -- since Palin isn't giving any explanation herself.

" I enter last yr in office...":

Um..."last year in office"? That's as bad as the "four years ago" reference in the Friday afternoon speech that seemed to imply she thought she'd served her entire 4 year term as Governor.

NOW she's apparently under the delusion that it's not July 5th, 2009 -- it's December 6, 2009 (which is a year from the date her term as governor actually expires).

Latest twitter from the gov to be ex :

Sue you soon
love ya all, sara

She was in Juneau, spotted Friday on way to the Friday Concert in the Park (maybe taking advantage of the free community BBQ?) and on the way back. Also was spotted watching the parade. They prob. headed here because they figured it would be easier to avoid national media here.

HOWEVER, seeing as how she never committed to appear at the 50th Anniv. of Statehood celebration (after being invited in Feb.; the President sent his regrets within weeks...), she was NOT on the program to speak; Clark Gruening actually was. The MC (Sen. Dennis Egan) was making a joke about Gruening being the replacement.

@InJuneau - Thanks so much for sharing those details!

I just wish she'd pack and leave. But I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of her. It will take the GOPers to finish her off - and with her "unfavorables" off the charts, she is nothing but a joke for a National election.

In a way it's sad - it's always difficult to watch a mentally ill person self destruct. I know she really is crazy, and she needs help. But she'll never realize it. Her pathology is too severe.

She'll never go through with a lawsuit. She couldn't make it through a deposition, it would be like watching a deer in the headlights.

She's always been an abysmal failure at everything she's done. This is nothing new for her. She doesn't even have a sense of time.

Wow, the enduring compassion of the "progressive" Left.

I'd say the fact that we on the left are even taking time to blog about such a freak is pretty compassionate. She surely doesn't even deserve the time of day right now.

As the Repubs are busy throwing her under the bus and burying her, we here, in our awesome compassion, and co-mingling it with a healthy dose of "I told you so". What a day for progressives, indeed!

Party on, folks! Ding dong the witch is gone.

aw shucks! A "no show" at the festivities she promised to attend, too?

Add another moniker, please - liar & quitter.


Virginia Voter left a link to a People Magazine article,,20289481,00.html
They interviewed Todd's father, he had no warning about her quitting.

Thanks anon 9:09 AM. I heard as early as June 27 or 28 that Levi was going to NYC, but wasn't told why. I made a brief post at Blow-Pop-Palin4. It was about the time Palin tweets were getting a religious tone. Desperation?

Anonymous said...

@BPP - fascinating - all signs indicate this was a very very hasty decision - what the freak happened?

LOL at your image of SP's religious tweets while Levi is in NYC confessing her sins . . .

I saw NYMagazine published a thing on July 2 about him meeting w/ publishers in NYC - apparently he had been there all week - v curious timing if you ask me.

Gee mental midgets, did you not think that at some point Sarah Palin would fight back. God bless Palin, her time has come and as my mom always used to tell me, WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND." The chickens have come home to roost for you vile sharks who sought to destroy this woman!
