Uh-oh it is that time. Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are at it again. Sarah Palin made her debut as a Fox commentator on the O’Reilly Factor last night and fresh off the presses are Palin haters with remarkable mutation stories of her performance. From this article by Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik:
January 12, 2010
Sarah Palin’s Fox debut: Prime-time propaganda
“Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly — the only question is how high the ratings will go.
What a pair and what an awful politicization of TV news.
O’Reilly, the highest rated host on cable news TV, introduced the newest star in the Fox News galaxy Tuesday night as a “news analyst.” If what Palin did in her debut is news analysis, I’m the governor of Alaska and I can see Russia from my backyard.“
Zurawik’s “Russia from my backyard” statement pretty much tells you where he is going with his critique. Down the long and winding mudslinging road of outdated and rehashed Tina Fey SNL Sarah Palin parody skits. Wow, how creative and appealing to your readers. What an awful politicization of journalism, huh?Watch your readers slobber with Palin hating delight? What the article suggests is more of the same liberal bashing and fine tooth combing of Palin. She will never have a chance with these guys. The article showcases the not so clever and unoriginal words of a so called TV and pop culture critic for the Baltimore Sun who writes about the “craziness of TV” though the crazy lens of liberal mainstream media.
The readers of the Baltimore Sun should be blessed that Zurawik’s genius “Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an M.A. in specialized reporting (on popular culture) from the University of Wisconsin” deigned to take on the lowly subject of Sarah Palin.
After all Sarah Palin is an insignificant political is a nobody… right?
Zurawik is such the bigger person, not former governor of Alaska with the powers of persuasion to rally hundreds of thousands, raise five children including one who is special needs, and land a contract with the nation’s most highly rated cable news channel. I will spare you Zurawik’s blow by blow account of Palin’s conversation with O’Reilly and let you see and hear the exchange as it appeared on Fox News:
“In the language of television, that exchange was a perfect interview pas de deux, with Palin sounding intelligent and reasonable with all the “perhaps-es” and the “quites,” while O’Reilly deftly introduced the outrageous notion that Pelosi is ”crazy” — and somehow made it seem like it is a widely held belief.
What a cart and pony show. O’Reilly is a TV master, Palin’s a TV player, and together they are going to bring orgiastic TV delight to right-wing viewers. I think I actually heard Nielsen People Meters exploding on TV sets in the more affluent suburbs of Baltimore last night when these two really got going.
I will spare you the scenario of O’Reilly teeing up old sad sack Harry Reid so that Palin could talk about her lifelong commitment to “diversity” and how indefensible she found Reid’s comments about the color of Obama’s skin.”
Really Mr. Zurawik? You will “spare us that”? Gee why? Could it be because Harry Reid’s comments were indefensible? Oh I forgot Harry Reid is a Democrat, so lets just hold our hope n’ change noses in the air while that big smelly liberal hypocrisy fart bomb dissipates into see no liberal evil, hear no liberal evil la la land.
“I will also spare you the show-trial-like give-and-take play acting they did with O’Reilly quoting or replaying bad things that were said about Palin on “60 Minutes” so that she could call them “b.s.” or label them one-by-one a “lie” and then try to rewrite what she said — just as she did in her book “Going Rogue.”
I must briefly mention, however, the way O’Reilly helped her promote a Tea Party event at which she will be the featured speaker — and the way he tried to defend her receiving payment for the appearance. I must because I really hate it when O’Reilly uses TV this way to promote partisan events.
I will also share what she had to say about Obama’s sinking poll numbers: “Of course, they’re sinking. It was just a matter of time before more of that reflection of the people’s uncomfortableness that they feel towards this administration is manifesting in these poll numbers,” she said. “… There is an obvious disconnect between President Obama and the White House, what they are doing to our economy and what they are doing in terms of not allowing Americans to feel as safe as we had felt…”
I forgot how Palin speaks in a grammar and syntax unlike anyone else on this planet, but you get the idea. And I’ll tell you what: In a protected TV environment like the one Fox and O’Reilly skillfully provided for her Tuesday night, I think she could be a red-hot ratings winner. And the country and our political conversation are going to be the poorer for it.
I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010. This is not news analysis. This is TV as political propaganda.”
Ah, beware of the conservative sirens of Fox News. Flashing their shiny hair and pro-life smiles. Gunning for your liberal ways. How dare FOX make you watch them. How dare they! You are just minding your own business reading Mother Jones magazine, sitting on your organic milk crates stolen from the Trader Joe’s, munching on dehydrated apricots and hemp granola, just minding your own business when something compels you to turn on FOX News and watch Sarah Palin. Oh, God pray to Saint Olbermann and Matthews.
” I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010″
Now that is hilarious. Sarah Palin obviously makes Zurawik have nightmares.
Concerning her appearance on O’Reilly, it was Sarah Palin’s first outing as a commentator on FOX News. O’Reilly was doing more of an orientation in my view. The same thing he did with John Stossel and Lou Dobbs when they were on his show. O’Reilly is not the only FOX News venue Palin will appear on, so rest easy, you will have plenty of hate candy to chew on in all sorts of formats while viewing your FOX favorites.
Sarah and Sean.
Sarah and Greta.
Sarah and Chris Wallace.
Sarah with Fox N’ Friends.
Sarah sitting on Charles Krauthammer’s lap…
In fact she will appear on the Glenn Beck Program this afternoon. Don’t forget to bring your Obama pillow and copy of Strunk and White. You must use that PhD. in American Studies for something besides maintaining tenure at the Baltimore Sun.
And if you Palin haters still have a size extra small condom wrapper left, you may be interested in Ann Coulter’s slap down of Al Sharpton on Hannity which also aired Tuesday night. Of course, as the honorable mouthpiece for the entire black community, Rev. Sharpton’s credibility’s rating is in negative digits but someone please archive this interview so we can tell him to shut the hell up the next time he brings up a racist cartoon or white person walking by a black church with a bucket of fried chicken in the near future.
And no liberal politicians, it is not okay to only call Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson the next time a racist flag is pinned on on the tail of a DNC jackass. YOU MUST CALL OR TEXT EVERY BLACK PERSON IN AMERICA. What if I don’t attend their church? How will you know what I am thinking? How will you know that I have accepted your empty apology?
