Sarah’s Memorial Day Ruined by Media Firestorm She Ignited

Everybody say, “Awwwwww.”

Palin doesn’t understand why taking covert pictures of Joe McGinnis, accusing him of being a peeping pedophile who wants to see her daughters naked and publishing it all on a Facebook page that has 1.5 million Friends is such a big fucking media deal. (Not to mention simultaneously shopping her story to Beck and Hannity, just to make sure everybody heard her.)

When in doubt, be an irresponsible media-hogging Professional Victim, cry “Wolf!” to your rabid fan-base of Slingblade Ninjas, run for the shadows, blame the media for what you started, then cower behind Family and Patriotism:

And it’s a shame that Todd and I had another disappointing encounter with the media on Memorial Day of all days. It was time that we could have spent with our kids and on a day when we honor those who have died in defense of our Constitution, including our freedom of the press.

Bite me, Sarah. You’ll be President when OJ Simpson replaces Dr. Phil.

Post Holiday Tidbits

Just a few things of note as everybody settles back into the work routine.

First, of all the long-term, high profile political marriages who’da thunk Al and Tipper Gore (!) would be thinking about calling it quits?  No explanation given, pleasepleaseplease don’t let us find out Al’s been having a long time affair with an aide or something.

Second, a question for the Repubs.  How’s that repeal-the-bill thingy working out for ya, part deux?  A “60 Minutes”/Vanity Fair poll finds that a plurality of Americans do not want to repeal any or all of the reform law.  Respondents were asked if they would like to repeal specific sections of the law or none at all.  Not surprisingly the individual mandate was the least popular feature with Republicans most wanting that section gone. 

Next up mavericky half-guv Palin tells Bobby Jindal to find his own inner maverick and ignore the feds! She suggests Jindal go full speed ahead with building them there berms and ask forgiveness later.  Yeah, I’m just SURE Louisiana has the dough to take care of that. 

Finally, over at the Washington Post, Richard Cohen *muses* on whether recent declines in crime rates are bad for liberals!  In a piece somewhat remarkable, even for Cohen, in its incoherence, he apparently is arguing that crime is committed by bad guys and therefore liberals are wrong to assume societal ills contribute in any way.  He doesn’t explain why the bad guys are seemingly getting less bad these days.  Maybe because bleeding heart lie-beral programs to fight crime might actually be, um, working?

Death Threat of the Weekend: Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman

From their “Opinion” page:

Finally, those who are fond of Joe McGinnis might remind him (if he doesn’t already know) that Alaska has a law that allows the use of deadly force in protection of life and property.

I guess the Frontiersmen aren’t members of the “lamestream media” or big fans of that silly concept of freedom of the press. [via Frum]
