Rumproast Gets Results! Sarah Palin Apologizes! You’re Welcome, America!

After today’s post, which has been linked to a zillion times on the innertubes, Rumproast is now more powerful than Sarah Palin:

As Mrs. Polly noted in the Rumper Room:

RR has triggered the first Palinpology in the history of history!

Tune in tomorrow for our thoughts on death panels, baby drilling and how sweat is incapable of being sanity.

p.s. “We are working on a solution for those who were left behind.” That’s right, “left behind.”  I’m on to you, Palin! Stop sending secret tongue-speakin’ messages!

UPDATE: Those lovable Freepers and JammieWearingFool (no link for you either!) were trying to prove that the booing was staged yesterday.  Here’s a commenter (and Sarah fan) at Conservatives4Palin who was there...

Andy Davis
I wast at the Noblesville, Indiana event last night until about 9:30 or so.  I was one of the people who did not get to meet Sarah.  My wife and I stood in line for a long while.  There were about 300-400 people who had wristbands who did not gt to have Sarah sign their books also.

I don’t believe the event at the end was staged at all.  I was there with the same people for many hours and we all assumed we would get to meet Sarah.  There were a few very immature people there at the end.  One girl was ripping pages out of her booka nd throwing them in the air.  several others wanted to return their books to Borders.  The store had closed so some were not let in to do so.

Overall it was a great evening.  We did get to see Sarah as she welcomed the crowd as she initially arrived on her bus.  She spoke for 3-5 minutes tops.

There were about 2500-3000 people there in all.  there were 1000 bracelets passed out and each person with a bracelet was allowed to hvae a guest with them.

The scene at the very end was unfortunate.  it could hvae easily been dealt with in a more classy manner that is for sure.  For example, Sarah could have at least said thanks to all teh people who had waited like we did for hours in the cold and rain.  It would have taken 2-4 minutes at the most. It wold have been the right way to deal with it.  Just a quick than you to all the people who had waited all that time.

I understand that she had a schedule to keep.  That is how the deal works.  MOst people were not understanding about that.  At some point she just has to get on the bus and go to the next stop.  I get that.  Still, a thank you message to close it out takes a couple minutes and then allows people to feel like it was somwhoe worth the trip.  We drove 3 hours to see her and many others did the same.

She owed us nothing.  I understand that as well. Alot of folks left with a bad taste in their mouth and I am sure that is not what Sarah had in mind. I don’t for the life of me believe that was her desired outcome.

In her book, she talks a lot obout being handled on the campaign.  She talks how the campaign director and higer ups shut her down at every turn.

The way I figure it, she is ultimately in charge of every detail of the book signing tour.  The buck stops with her on this tour.  She can’t blame publishers or bookstores or security guys.  She is on her own now and she had a chance to do the right thing and send the people off with hospitality.  It is kind of a Hoosier-thing I guess, the Hoosier Hospitality.

And so while I understand timelines and schedules and bus tours, the problem needs to be fixed.  And that right soon.

UPDATE: Here’s the Countdown segment about The Palienated…

“I’ve been told that there were supporters . . . who stood in long lines in the cold and rain . . . “

what, you didn’t NOTICE them? how do you miss the 300 people surrounding your tour bus chanting “SIGN OUR BOOKS!”

such a twatwaffle.

It was Nicole Wallace’s fault

“We are working on a solution for those who were left behind.”

The suggestion that her following wouldn’t be Ruptured will trigger a new round of shrieking from those paranoiac dipshits.

Watching this idiot fail, fail and then fail some more is all the fun of the election without the nagging worry that she might win.

Now all we need is for the bus driver to say fuck this crazy woman and her bandsaw voice and call People magazine.

Larry O’Donnell’s running the story on KO’s show.

Bravo.

Yeah, I just saw that, Strange.  I’m sure we’ll be getting fat checks for being research assistants for that segment.

HuffPost. Front page. NOW.

Article link here.

(Via Kos and Indy Channel.)

From the Believe or Not File

Did you know?

“It took years for Alaska to achieve victory. As governor, I directed our attorney general to write an amicus brief in the case, and, thanks to Alaska’s able attorneys arguing in front of the highest court in the land, in 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the people,” Palin wrote. “Finally, Alaskans could recover some of their losses.”

Next edition of Sarah “Going Rogue”

Did you know that Sarah Palin brought down the Berlin Wall, and it was she who shot Hitler in the head. And rode up San Juan Hill with Teddy on her trusy moose.

Sarah wrote the Gettysburg Address and led George Washington across the Potomac in her rubber ducky.

Kevin, can I carry your books for you after class?

Kevin, can I carry your books for you after class?

Yes! And they will all be Going Rogue!

Everyone familiar with American culture knows that we consider apologizing to be a sign of weakness. Why not just bow down to the Grand Wazoo of Chinatown while you’re at it?

Exactly. Tonight the Freepers have the sad.

Hmmm. Following Strange’s link I came upon this:

The U.S. Army said Friday it would open Sarah Palin’s appearance on Fort Bragg to media, a reversal from earlier in the week when the military wanted the event closed out of fears it would prompt political grandstanding against President Barack Obama.

And Palin will abandon the troops in 5…4…3…

(Nice of them to share the laffs but really, their original reason was bullshit. Unless something has changed of late a military base is full of people who can send your ass on its way if they don’t want you there. They could have just told her to Fo&D if they were concerned.)

That quote left Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore (herself a party to the lawsuit) singularly unimpressed (the whole article’s well worth a read):

When Sarah Palin was asked by Katie Couric what Supreme Court decisions other than Roe v Wade she disagreed with, she couldn’t think of one. NOT ONE!  Sarah squandered an opportunity-the perfect chance to tell America our story…an Alaskan story…dozens of suicides…thousands sick from clean up…tens of thousands bankrupt from a dead fishery.

Sarah Palin is to Alaska what Velveeta is to cheese; sadly unsatisfying and empty of nutrition. She had the national stage to plead Alaska’s case to citizens who had long forgotten the images of a once pristine Prince William Sound turned into a thick, black, rolling sea; the oiled sea otters and birds; unrecognizable seals and whales; an initially deformed and diseased herring run that became extinct-costing Cordova $100 million a year. Exxon exploited Alaska and turned pain into profit.

AND NOW, Palin is claiming to be part of a victory for the people of Alaska? Reality Deficit Disorder…now in book form.

A debate at DKos about whether or not Palin is smart got me thinking.  I don’t think she’s smart but it’s possible her smartness is so far above mine it resembles a box of rocks from this distance.

I salaam before you.  Awesome work.

Sarah Palin is to Alaska what Velveeta is to cheese; sadly unsatisfying and empty of nutrition.

Win!  We need to find some way of working Velveeta into our Palin epithets…

“We are working on a solution for those who were left behind.”

Liar.

One thing that does irk me a bit about cable news shows is how much free uncredited research they cull from blogs.  It’s a rarity you ever see them “hat tip” blogs.  That segment wouldn’t have existed without Strange finding those comments and me finding that video.

I guess what I’m really sad about is that I would have loved to hear Lawrence O’Donnell say “Rumproast.” How funny would that have been spilling out of his big meaty head?

Maddow and Schuster are the only ones that routinely will mention the blogs that they read for info.

Yeah, that’s why I was hoping it would have made Maddow instead of Countdown.  Oh well, good fun regardless.

For the record, this is the second time we’ve provided research services for Countdown.

I guess she’ll need to write another apology for the unpleasantness in Columbus.

Strange, I’ve been off the inntertubes today. What happened in Columbus? Your link led to a video about Noblesville.

Sorry about that. Brainfart. I was looking at five tabs at once, and got that confused with Hamilton County, OH (Columbus).

As a contrite offering, let me link to these on-the-street interviews with Palin fans camped out for the Dublin, OH signing. Great fun.

The third day of Palin’s book-signing tour was a smashing success, although it did not turn out happily for all. Borders had announced that the first 1,000 in line by the store’s 10 a.m. opening would be guaranteed to get their books signed, two per person.

But Palin’s staff called the Sawmill store early yesterday and told managers to cut back to 500 wristbands, causing hundreds to be turned away.

A smashing success = Doing half of what you said you’d do.

Update: Link.

Considering that Noblesville is Klan Kountry, I think maybe Sarah’s erstwhile supporters should adopt a new anthem:

Now I’m no expert on book sales, but I just checked the NYT best seller list for non-fiction (and fiction) and didn’t see Snowbilly’s book anywhere.
