Watch out, Bobby J.: Palin makes an appearance at Mardi Gras
Welcome back to “Daily Palin,” in which we detail Sarah Palin’s refusal to go away—every day. The morning news from the biased, liberal, gay, mainstream media:
* WHO WAS THE MEANEST TO SARAH OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WERE MEAN TO SARAH? Andrew Sullivan takes the cake, says John Ziegler. Sez Zieg: “Andrew Sullivan is a guy who should never be allowed back in any remnant of the conservative movement after what he did, just on the Trig ‘trutherism’ issue. It’s just scandalous. I mean, this guy is still invited on major TV shows after coming forward with, and continuing, the theory that Gov. Palin faked a pregnancy of a Downs Syndrome child even after we found out that the daughter she was allegedly protecting was also pregnant, in a way made it absolutely biologically impossible.”
BUMMER: Curt Menard, mayor of Alaska’s “Mat-Su Borough”(?), has died. You can thank Dr. Menard, who was also a dentist, for Sarah Palin’s teeth, if you like them. Which is what she says at the end of this long, sprawling tribute to the man:
WHY LIBERALS REALLY HATE SARAH PALIN: Clarence Thomas redux. “What’s happening to Michael Steele is what always happens to any conservative who happens to be a minority. Whether it was Clarence Thomas or Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal and now Michael Steele, the liberal establishment simply cannot sit by while minority faces espouse a conservative belief. It is the most threatening prospect to left wing power: the possibility that women, African Americans, Hispanics, and others would begin to embrace individual liberty rather than government dependency.”
FIRST DUDE WINTER SPORTS CORNER: Todd Palin gets some advice from Bubba, via Palin family offical news conduit Greta Van Susteren:
“When you break these gender roles there are all these subconscious expectations,” [Clinton] said.
“I think the trick is, if you’re a husband and the woman is in the political role traditionally identified with men,” said Clinton, “the trick is to give support that is unambiguous and clear and to also be there with advice privately, but to do it in a way that doesn’t, in a funny way, make her look weak.”
. . . “Whenever you start changing the deck chairs and gender roles and family roles,” said Clinton, “you have to be prepared for psychological as well as political sparks to fly, and my advice to [Todd Palin] is to keep that smile, don’t get defensive.”
SARAH PALIN: PLEEEEASE BE THE NEXT BLAGO. Now that Kim Elton has been whisked away on a standard-issue Obama administration unicorn to go serve his state in the liberal hell hole of Washington, D.C., Sarah Palin has to find a replacement for him: “Gov. Sarah Palin will make the appointment within 30 days, according to state law. Her appointment must be of a Democrat, and must be approved by the Senate’s Democrats.” My best wishes go out to the Governor that her appointment will be marred by profanity-filled wire-tapping tapes, or at least involve a protracted and reportedly callous consideration of Caroline Kennedy. Thanks.
