For Gryph

Gryph at The Immoral Minority has put up a post about how organizations that have pre-bought the Crazy Woman's fake book are giving it away, or tying "free offers" to subscriptions or to being on HUGE GOP spam lists.

I subscribe to lots of conservative news services, to keep up with what they're up to. Here's a multiple screen shot from just one of them, NewsMax:

More importantly, he's put up a news report on the abuse of children by the christian pastors and churches in Africa. The ones your donations at church go to fund. Wouldn't it be nice if they were only having sex with the adolescent boys? Which I say, because watching toddlers being tortured for witchcraft has made me a little crazy.

One thousand children, in one month, in one African country, were killed by practicing evangelical christians for being witches. That is just the children.

These are churches set up by the sects supported by Provo, Palin, and the Washington C-Street cabal. By the same interests that funded the evangelical movement that has taken root in our military, and been key in preventing the repeal of DADT DOMA, and the continued abuse of non-christian soldiers.

More important than Palin's shiny book. Focus, guys. There are real problems.

Wal-Mart and Amazon.com are pretty much giving it away too at $9.00 and free shipping. You know they are taking a loss at that price.

How's your boy Maxie's little tome doing ? Still on the NYT Top Twenty ?
Are you guys really so desperate in your misogynist hatred of Palin that this is what qualifies as news for you ?
Dark days indeed for the "progressive" movement (that's if something so moribund and stuck in the 1960s quagmire of Marxism and Anti-Americanism can be described as a "movement")

How is it a "fake book" ? Because it's the story of a conservative woman ? Because it doesn't actually exist ? Someone explain, please.

Maybe Sarah is adding that new building on her property to store all of her unsold books.

Anonymous 6:29: It is a "fake book" because she did not write it, just like she hasn't written any of her FB notes. If you compare her speeches and vernacular to her recent "written" pieces, it is obvious she has nothing to do with the writing.

Therefore...."fake book". Not her words, thoughts, or vocabulary.

All politicians employ ghost writers to assist but not to the extent she has. She can't even pronounce many of the words that show up in her "writings".

We don't object to Palin on misogynistic or conservative grounds. If you look into the past for the beneficent political meaning of 'conservative', a term which today is little more than short-form for 'white Xian extremist with unwavering dedication to xenophobic, racist and conspiratorial thought patterns'. See, that just doesn't sing.

I'm female, white, in my fifth decade; would happily drop the capsule into acid for recidavist pedophiles and murderers, don't know rap from hip-hop (much like Michael Steele) grew up with guns, don't have one around now because I live in a city with very few rattlesnakes.

Palin doesn't represent the female of the species. She represents herself. Women, children, rural and native populations, and the aged were ill-served by her work as a civil servant. She has proven herself near-illiterate, and all commentary and available history prove that this was deliberate on her part.

If she is able to maintain a public profile, it will be as a reality contestant or a well-paid prop -- this is what she herself has made clear is a desired future.

If we want her to remain outside of the public discourse on political matters, it can be looked at as a friendly gesture to a person with limited abilities. Like telling an aging starlet it's time to drop the hemline and switch hairdressers. We're not cruel, we're just hoping to save her from herself.

And everyone else from her shadowy sugar-daddy.

Amen, sister!

"'white Xian extremist with unwavering dedication to xenophobic, racist and conspiratorial thought patterns'."

Unlike the pro-islamic, anti-American, anti-Christian, mysogynist extremists of the Left.

"Palin doesn't represent the female of the species."

She never claimed to represent all women...where do you people come up with this stuff ?

"If we want her to remain outside of the public discourse on political matters, it can be looked at as a friendly gesture to a person with limited abilities."

Typical patronizing snark from the kind of liberal elitists who think that no-one outside the Ivy League should be allowed an opinion in today's America. Strangely enough the "limited abilities" of Palin got her to a State Governorship while her critics could only dream
of such an achievement.

"She has proven herself near-illiterate"

Unlike our king-of-the-teleprompter in the White House who can only talk in cliches and empty platitudes
and who needed anti-American terrorist Bill Ayers to ghost write "Dreams Of MY Father".

When, exactly, did the American Left become the party of the Ivy League snob ? I guess the Left gave up being the party of the working man about the same time Kerry married Heinz.

Well- here we still go...
to the anony(s) pro- P-
A 3 way governor's race with SP running as a fresh face and on the clear -and -transparent wagon , with AK still reeling as more and more of the CBC trials showed our underbelly, ended with SP winning almost as a protest vote against all known faces.
That fresh face was beginning to fade before the VP nomination but as she managed to keep herself ( or her handler did )mostly on track- whether one agrees with her stance on issues or not - Alaskans were pretty much ok with her as guv.
"Troopergate" as per the Branchflower report finished off any wait-and-see attitude I was still hanging onto.
Her total lack of focus on the troubles in rural AK last winter,the increasingly personal responses to critics as opposed to professional distance (our state webpage for the gov started looking like a snarky personal blog... ), her growing inattention during session to governing, all added to concern that her mission as governor had become advancing self over job.
The quitting her job midstream thingy- while in the end has been a huge relief for AK- was a final whiny slap at voters who had such hopes , initially, of changing the way politcs get done here in AK.

Harnessing people's fears, exhorting them to see themselves as " the real Americans" - yes, she did.
Confusing the line between public office and private business- yes, she did.
Writing off anyone who disagrees with her, vengefully- yes- she did.
Aligning herself with monied conservative interests while spouting common-folk aphorisms- yes, she has.
Encouraging folks to see her as a victim of misogyny, sexism, ivy-league elitist disdain, and every other hot-button she can dream up- Yes, she did and does...

The cult of personality she cultivates , in the name of important issues we face, stinks.

Personally, I'm happy to see us, here in Alaska, get back to our endless duels about ways to meet our goals without her dippo interjections of personal pique.



Best- seller book status here is less a measure of the intrinsic worth of the book and more a measure of factors like these big buys/price wars/giveaways .
It might be argued , I suppose , that this is a step above the uptown bodice-rippers which dominate the fictional best sellers lists...
But then we have to get real about what best-seller has come to mean...

"Harnessing people's fears,"

Isn't that what the Whiner-In-Chief has been doing over Healthcare ?

"Confusing the line between public office and private busines"

Hey, it what the Chicago mob and their man in the White House do best.

"Writing off anyone who disagrees with her, vengefully- yes- she did."

Obama naming Rush in press conferences, the White House going after Fox News.

"Aligning herself with monied conservative interests while spouting common-folk aphorisms- yes, she has."

How many more links between Obama and Wall Street are going to be unearthed ?

"Encouraging folks to see her as a victim of misogyny, sexism, ivy-league elitist disdain, and every other hot-button she can dream up- Yes, she did and does..."

Well actually she WAS a victim of those attacks from Ivy League media snobs and their "progressive" useful idiots BUT at least she didn't pull the race card...the one that Obama and his media corps play everytime he messes up (which now happens on a weekly basis).

PS You didn't mention the real reason why the Alaska "progressives" attacked with such bile. It was only when she was selected as McCain's running mate and became a threat to your Messiah that you all piled on the hate. At least be honest enough to admit that...

Anonoymous, please do something positive with your time.

anony-
You are starting to sound like an echo with a wobble.
The distortion is obvious- even to this untrained ear...

"Anonoymous, please do something positive with your time."

Oh , I do plenty of positive stuff with my time. Unlike the "progressive" community in Alaska, I don't consider indulging in "two minute hate " (It's from 1984 ..look it up) attacks on a female politician almost every day a positive use of my time.

Well, if you're a liberal how difficult could it be ?

Well, I read through the string, and while it's probably an elite, liberal POV, one of the anons doesn't seem to have much ability to discuss facts rationally. Get personal, yes. Support his conclusions with history and logic... not so much. But I'm very proud that he wasn't voted off the island! Everyone gets a voice.

There's an ideal that's always come back to bite us in the--

"one of the anons doesn't seem to have much ability to discuss facts rationally. Get personal, yes."

So when the so-called "elite, liberal POV" describes all conservatives in the USA as "'white Xian extremist with unwavering dedication to xenophobic, racist and conspiratorial thought patterns" we're not supposed to take that personally ? Sorry, I don't think people should stand by while the Left tries to dehumanize the majority of people in this country merely because we disagree with the President.Your appeal for facts to be discussed rationally would be better aimed at those on this blog who constantly refer to conservatives as "tea-baggers", "racists","evil" and "xenophobes".
