Palin’s Pesky Pugnaciousness Proves Pointless

Much like herpes, Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving. Remember when the gracious ex-Governor of Alaska came to the defense of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who stirred up a world of controversy after publicly stating that she opposed gay marriage. Sarah Palin telephoned the beauty queen so as to personally deliver her support, and then said,

“The liberal onslaught of malicious attacks against Carrie Prejean for expressing her opinion is despicable. Our Constitution protects us all – not just those that agree with the far left.”

That was just one of many examples of Palin needing a refresher course in Constitutional Law. Had she attended any one single institution of higher education for more than a month or two, she may have learned that the Constitution of “this great nation of ours” protects a person’s right to free speech from restriction by the government, but not from the invisible hand of the private sector free-market that she so often praises. The Constitution does not protect someone’s free speech from criticism by others. Indeed, the Constitution provides the same free speech protections to those critics.

This brings us to the former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska’s most recent foray into the realm of Constitutional law and rights of free speech. Last week, you will recall, that uber-conservative right-wing radio host Laura Schlessinger said what is known as the “n-word” 11 times in 5 minutes to a black caller who was inquiring how to handle racial slights from relatives and friends of her husband, who is white. The public backlash to Schlessinger’s insensitivity was so severe and widespread that she was forced to announce this week that she is ending her radio show.

In essence, the private sector (i.e. listening audience and advertising sponsors) decided that Schlessinger’s radio program was no longer worth listening to and advertising on. No audience plus no advertisers in the free market radio world equals no profit and consequently, no more show for Dr. Laura. This is simple free market Economics 101: There is no longer any demand for Schlessinger’s product and thus her enterprise has now failed. No government involvement of any kind stymied Schlessinger’s right to free speech. She was free to go on spewing the “n-word” as often as she chose, but the rejection of her product by the listening public and her advertisers forced her to voluntarily cease production. Sarah Palin is simply too stupid to understand this.

A day after Schlessinger told CNN’s Larry King she was ending her show amid controversy over her repeated use of the N-word during an on-air conversation, Palin tweeted,

“Dr.Laura:don’t retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American,not fair”)”

Later that day she once again resorted to the sophomoric means of communication and tweeted,

“Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!,”

Apparently unable to keep her mouth shut for even one day, Palin next chose Facebook to make a fool of herself. She posted,

“Does anyone seriously believe that Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a racist? Anyone, I mean, who isn’t already accusing all conservatives, Republicans, Tea Party Americans, etc., etc., etc. of being racists? I can understand how she could feel ‘shackled’ by those who would parse a single word out of decades of on-air commentary. I understand what she meant when she declared that she was ‘taking back my First Amendment rights’ by turning to a new venue that will not allow others the ability to silence her by going after her stations, sponsors, and supporters.”

Well Sarah, yes, at least one person believes that Schlessinger’s racist tirade was wrong? Who might that be, you ask? Why it’s Dr. Laura herself. Of the incident, she said,

“I was attempting to make a philosophical point, and I articulated the N-word all the way out – more than one time. And that was wrong. I’ll say it again – that was wrong.”

Honestly Sarah, apart from your now stale quip about “retreat and reload” (code words to incite violence?), please be advised that in no way have Schlessinger’s “1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist”. She is free to self-fund her own show to her heart’s content and to say whatever she desires if she is willing to suffer the economic consequences of such an endeavor. The fact is that her show was silenced by operation of the free market and not by any governmental restriction on her right to free speech. Your alleged “Constitutional obstructionists” had nothing to do with Laura Schlessinger’s failure. And what the heck do you mean by, “Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles”? Do you honestly believe that her racist message is more powerful and effective without a radio show to broadcast it? Will Dr. Laura now get her message across more effectively by means of standing atop some soap box in a public park or maybe by transmitting a flurry of tweets and Facebook postings like you? Give us a break.

For her own good, Sarah Palin should stop commenting about the Constitution of the United States of America until she learns a little bit about it.

In honor of the troops, please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s Sarah Palin song parody.

It’s All Over Now song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbpU5vBYnfU&feature=related

IT’S ALL OVER NOW

(sung to the Rolling Stones version of the song “It’s All Over Now”)

Well, Palin was around way too long
She winked those eyes, went to Hong Kong
But her heart’s now broken, that’s no lie
Tables turn and now it’s her turn to cry

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

Well, she thought that she’d be crowned a queen in D.C. Town
She’d spend book deal money to buy herself some fame
She has no clout, that must be a blow to her pride
Tables turn and now it’s Sarah who cries

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

(musical interlude)

Well, on Meet The Press Sunday morning, did you hear what they said?
“Palin’s political future is all but dead”
Brooks, Dionne and Murphy really smacked Palin down
Now the whole world knows that she is just a clown

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

  1. “Palin’s political future is all but dead”
    Brooks, Dionne and Murphy really smacked Palin down
    Now the whole world knows that she is just a clown

    Love this!

    I think she screwed up by mocking the teacher who criticized her in Homer. Can’t wait until the free market finishes off $P. I’ve been over her since 8/29/08.

    • That’s Sarah Plain and Stupid.

      • Is that why she had the first round of plastic surgery? To hide the lobotomy scars?

      • So it’s not just me–a comment from the Mudflats:

        “OMG says:
        August 20, 2010 at 9:20 AM

        Today’s Politico Arena asks about Palin’s defense of Dr. Laura. So far there are only a few responses but each slams her beautifully! Here’s one of my favs written by Drew Westen, Psychologist and Neuroscientist:

        “Palin is getting far more coverage per column inch than she deserves. She looked great at one speech at the Republican convention and has gone downhill from there. This is her lowest moment, supporting someone who is either a racist relic of a prior era in which people thought using that word was perfectly acceptable, or she has had a stroke and had her frontal lobes disabled and hence can’t regulate her own behavior and is probably also incontinent

        “If the GOP nominates Palin in 2012 they will lose any chance of winning the White House. She’s a right-wing Paris Hilton without the legacy – no more, no less. Celebrity in the degraded sense of the word. McCain chose her in the political version of “The Bachelor.”

        “We should stop obsessing about her and instead ask why we spent two years after the election talking about someone so vapid and tracking her every tweet. Most Americans don’t like her, and they strongly dislike her. That’s unlikely to change. Perhaps the reason we’re so focused on her is the frightening knowledge that Americans elected George W. Bush, and at her best, she’s George W. Bush in a skirt.” “

  2. I always appreciate alliteration. Great post, she kills me with her spoutin’ ’bout fightin’ for the Constitution when clearly she has no clue about anything except playing the victim card over and over and over. Desperate to be taken seriously but cannot fathom why she isn’t. Twitter and facebook temper tantrums, “why is nobody listening to meeeeeeeeeeee?” Skin so thin it’s nearly transparent. I swear there are days when she makes George Bush look like a Rhodes scholar.

  3. Liberal onslaught of malicious attacks

    “Sarah Palin=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles of elected office or even a proper one-hour show on Pox, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!,”

  4. How about someone make a model of Sarah (tough and durable in the face area) that has recordings of her more famous idiotic rants and bring it on the northern carnival circuit this fall.
    “SLAP SARAH” Only One Dollar.
    After every slap she’ll say “reload” and start ranting again.

    How much FUN would that be?

  5. Sarah, I personally support you exercising your 1st Amendment rights, as you define them. Please rant some more on twitter. Of course, continue with the followup explanations on Facebook as we need them to translate your secret code (thank you Rebecca for all your hard work).

    This recent Dr. Laura thing was brilliant. Amazing how you defend her saying the “n” word and suggesting people shouldn’t marry outside their race if they don’t have a sense of humor. I love that you would demand Rahm Emanuel’s resignation should he ever utter the same word. Yes, and fire him for using the “r” word but protect Rush Limbaugh’s and Glen Beck’s use of it. Such a logical minefield you’ve developed. Few minds can understand…but I do.

    Keep up the good work.

  6. Hasn’t she ever heard of a blog?

    • Yes, she has heard of blogs, because she was “persecuted” by b loggers in AK, holding her accountable. Conservatives and liberals were blogging and she had one of her groupies, Ivy Frye tell Syrin, Sherry Whitstine, the Republican blogger “Stop blogging! Stop blogging, right now!” (www.nytimes.com/2008/09/14/us/politics/14palin.html) That blogger has known the Palins and Heaths their whole lives and $P wanted to take away HER First Amendment rights!

      http://wizbangblog.com/content/2008/05/29/alaska-gov-sarah-palin-to-meet-with-mccain-vp-search-team.php

      “This inept governor Sarah Palin has a high approval from the un educated, sound bite crowd. Sure it’s all fun and games to terrorizing and taxing private industry 400%, successfully becoming the highest taxing regime in the world. Chavez would be Proud Palin invited 1200 new friends to ride the government gravy train and help grow government. She has continued giving every special intrest group just what they want or more. Sarah has created an atmosphere of hate and discontent in the state of Alaska between the people and the legislators. She continues with baseless accusations and directs negative media towards the Alaska House and Senate Members. She just recently tried to oust the Chairman of the Republican Party of Alaska. Side Note: The Lt Governor announced he was running against the Senior Republican Congressman. This guy has provided no service in his present position. Sarah was voted in for being nothing more than a fresh face. The fact that she has NO experience and NO creditability was not considered in the debate. We are now reaping the consequences of electing someone quite incompetent to do this job. Note: Don’t Blame Me- I Didn’t Vote for Her. 56. Posted by syrin | June 15, 2008 5:33 AM” AND “Hey Tom and Juan,I live in ALASKA, I have known Sarah Heath and Todd Palin all their lives. My beef about an incompetent woman named Sarah Palin. She is a fraud! She can’t accomplish a simple task as a governor of a small state so she has created an atmoshpere of hate and pitting groups against each other. You people think she can be a VP, how with her looks? You have lost your FLIPPIN minds! Ignorance KILLS! She is not smart, conservative or prolife. She is not an upstanding parent or community member. I know who her oldest children were sent to live so to get them out of Sarah’s way. I know who Sarah had an affair with also. I know that Sarah Palin is the most insecure individual that I have ever met! The national GOP and McCain has NO intention on placing Sarah Palin who is the symbol of ignorance over substance in a position such as VP. Listen to my radio program 66. Posted by Syrin | June 28, 2008 3:31 PM” (I saw these blog comments on 8/29/08)

      That’s why she has her ghost writer use Facebook, so she can delude what’s left of her brain into thinking she has “friends” instead of being the world-wide laughingstock that she is.

  7. I am so happy that the ugly (inside and out) crazy old gym teacher reaped what she had sowed. She could have gotten her argument across by saying “N word” and not using the word and by not saying “don’t NAACP me” but like Michael Richards AKA “Cosmo Kramer”,she ends up the the trash heap of history, a history of her own making. I am so happy that the free market AKA sponsors started to pull their ads (I guess they were exercising their free speach) and she finally realized that she was just another “run of the mill gabby” and her days were numbered. She realized that she was not as smart as she thought she was, finally!

    The problem with Palin is the same when she mistakenly referred to Ronald Reagan Eureka College, being in California and we all know its in Illinois, same thing, she does not fact check anything she is going to say. She is soooo Palin!

  8. She has always given hints of her racism, now she might as well come out and say the rest of the nasty crap in her black heart. Hey does that mean she should hate her heart. She supports Ted Nuggent, they don’t come anymore open about their hate than him. Governor Perry loves him too, at his 2007 inaugural ball he preformed wearing a cut-off t-shirt with a confederate flag. (I’m pretty sure I saw a confederate flag hanging in Paylin’s office.) Ted shouted unflattering remarks about undocumented immigrants, machine guns were his props. In 2005 speaking at a NRA conference he ranted about all the people he wanted dead, including Iraqis and tax-raising, gun muzzling Democrats should be eliminated. He was holding an assault rifle. In 2008 while campaigning for Republicans he was spouting profanities against people of color and poor people. Glenn Beck said he would be at his upcoming MLK event, but later changed that.

    There are only two reasons to vote Republican your rich or racist. They have gone off the edge and can’t hide their hate for non-whites, gays and poor. These people are the lowest form of life, while pretending to be Christians.
