Is Sarah Palin A Celebrity “Survivor”?

Yesterday Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off detailed the ever-growing list of conservatives/Republicans who have deemed Sarah Palin to be either unqualified for higher political office or simply unelectable. Today we will reveal many of the nation’s celebrities that are repulsed by all things Palin.

First we have Palin’s co-TLC star Clinton Kelly of “What Not To Wear”. The wardrobe wonk appeared on “The Joy Behar Show” yesterday and blasted Palin for killing animals on her series simply for show. He said,

“I wasn’t thrilled when I heard that Sarah Palin had an eight-hour infomercial, you know, on my network because she basically stands for everything I don’t stand for or I’m against. So it’s a little bit rough. It’s a little — what bothers me the most about her is her hypocrisy. I hate somebody who’s, like, Oh, look at nature. Look at this beautiful Alaska. …  Look how beautiful everything is. Let’s go kill something … because we need some meat in the refrigerator.”

Kelly has a point inasmuch as the millionaire Palin is not in such a position that she cannot afford to buy food at the grocery store.

Of course Joy Behar herself is no stranger to Palin-blasting. She routinely pans the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska on both her own show and on the more popular “The View”. Remember the time when she countered co-host Elisabeth Hasselback’s contention that Palin shows her courage on her TLC show when she encounters the wild? Behar said,

“But, the question is, does she have the courage to come on ‘The View’? That would be the point. Forget the bears. How about the mama bears here?”

Even some folks at the ever-friendly Fox News network have joined the Palin-bashing parade. Two weeks ago on “Fox News Sunday”, Fox News contributor and former Bush White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said,

“It’s weird to at night be having a camping trip with Kate Gosselin, Kate Plus 8, and then the next morning read in USA Today this very serious and thoughtful piece about a nuclear Iran.” While Perino pointed out that many politicians have people do their writing for them, this “discordance” could be a problem for Palin in particular. “It doesn’t sound like her when you read the materials,” she said. “And authenticity matters almost more than ever, and I think that’s what mattered in 2010, and people wanted not to just hear the message, they wanted to hear the authenticity of it.”

Come to think of it, even Kate Gosselin could not “bear” the thought of spending the night with Palin and co.

Comedian Kathy Griffin has taken a different path. She said that she will lay-off the attacks against Sarah, Todd and daughter Bristol for awhile. She added however, that her New Year’s resolution is to target Sarah Palin’s 16-year-old daughter, Willow. She recently told The Hollywood Reporter,

“I’ve already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously. But I think it’s Willow’s year to go down. In 2011, I want to offend a new Palin. She’s called people a fa—t on Facebook a couple of times. “You don’t throw around the f-word without hearing from me about it.”

Griffin of course, was commenting on the young Palin’s recent Facebook postings wherein she tossed around the F-Bomb (both the homophobic and curse word varities) like her mother tosses a word salad.

Recently even Roseanne Barr (remember her?) has joined the act. Barr said she doesn’t like Palin even though they both portray themselves as down-home regular folks. She said,

“I feel she’s ripping off my act. She’s not even telling the truth to the American people. I think she took a lot from me and from my show, absolutely.”

Another comedian, Margaret Cho had this to say of Palin,

“At first I thought Sarah Palin was some kind of Republican pandering — a misguided attempt to woo Hillary voters over to the dark side, as if they believed women voters were so stupid that they would vote for anyone in skirt, but now I see that she is much, much worse. I have nothing against hockey moms — I just don’t want to be one. If Sarah Palin had her way, she would take away that right not to be a mom. She wants to outlaw abortion — so to call her a feminist is as laughable as calling evangelicals ‘Christians.’ They shouldn’t have the right to call themselves Christian, for they have no Christ-like attributes. I am a feminist and a Christian — and when I see Sarah Palin — I see neither.”

Boston’s very own Matt Damon (you know, Jason Bourne), the Harvard educated actor is also not fond of Sarah Palin. While running against the Obama ticket, he had this to say of the “pitbull with lipstick”,

“You do the actuary tables, there’s a one out of three chance, if not more, that McCain doesn’t survive his first term, and it’ll be President Palin. … It’s like a really bad Disney movie, “The Hockey Mom.” Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she’s president. She’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s absurd.”

Of course not all celebrities dislike the “Queen of Quit”. The ever sober and erudite Lindsay Lohan beamed,

“I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place. It’s distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences.”

‘Nuff said.

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 pseudo-rap inspired song parody.

Loser song link:


(sung to the Beck song “Loser”)

From the town of Wasilla, she’s like Godzilla
She’s lame in the brain and she endorsed Joseph Miller
With her winking eyeballs, Sarah loves those catcalls
Barbie doll shouts out to those G.I. Joes
On the far right they think she’s beautiful
Sarah Palin is a loser with no self-control
Sarah’s the Queen-O of the Tea Party
Just a bunch of dumb slouches marching to her beat
Pundits keep sayin’ she’s insane with no brain
Her daughter’s shotgun wedding was blasted into dirt
She writes crib-notes just below her sleeve
She was a Governor for awhile but she said she had to leave
She shoves her face in each race with her bark
Hates people with food stamps that live in those big trailer parks

Yo, cut it

Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(Double-barrel buckshot)
Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly

Palin is evil, thank John for this nightmare
Blasts country music in her book-signing chamber
Just a scheming weasel and she comes wrapped in a flag
Hails from the North Pole, this oil-pimping Tea-Hag
Loves her “Sixpack Joes” cuz First Dude has no job
Nothing more than Sarah’s house-husband slob
Sarah-baby pulls all of the strings
Snapped a turkey’s neck while she’s talking on that TV thing
She can’t write and she can’t debate
Stealing cash like a thief from her fans that think she’s great
Never bothers with any facts, … she’s wrong more than she’s right
While preachin’ to her minions

Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(She’s in the stardumb bizznizz)
Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(“Thanks but no thanks”)

Yo, bring her down

(She’s a liar, she’s a sinner, brings no hope or change, can’t you feel it?)

Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(She says, “also too”)
Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(Is that her baby?)
Oh, gosh darn it don’t you know
She’s a pinhead baby, the pride of Wasilly
(Know what I’m sayin’?)
