Sarah Palin Plays CPAC for Laughs
Daily Beast, by Howard Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/17/2013 6:15:15 AM

Sarah Palin called President Obama a liar and compared him to financial swindler Bernie Madoff as she fired up the CPAC conference and tried to propel herself back into the political conversation. In a punchy but disjointed speech on Saturday, Palin also took swipes at Karl Rove and the Republican Party while insisting that politicians concentrate on rebuilding the country. But she did not offer a single substantive specific, other than her repeated calls to respect the Second Amendment. She was, however, pretty funny, more standup comic than political practitioner. Palin’s exchange of Christmas gifts

Howie, here is a desperately needed free clue:
CPAC was packed for her speech. EVERYONE loved her speech. She spoke from the heart, and nailed our current administration and their faults and defects.

Howie, your article provides more proof that journalism has devolved into the dumbest profession on this planet.

Kurtz won´t call Obama a liar to his face like Palin just did because Kurtz likes when Obama lies.

her once-blinding luster seriously dimmed Really?
lost her pundit’s perch at Fox News Oh puh-leeze! Fox offered and she declined.

I don´t know why I bother with reading these babbling gnats´ columns. Sarah Palin energized the ticket in ´08, and she´s helped many conservatives win office. Ask Ted Cruz who delivered a brief but fantastic “second” introduction of the Governor to the standing room only CPAC crowd and said, ´I would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Gov. Sarah Palin. She is fearless, she is principled, she is courageous, and she is a mama grizzly.”´

Everything, from her choice of wardrobe, to her comedy schtick, indicated to me that she is done with elective politics. She´s done being anything but a cheerleader for us. Which is fine, we need one. Mbut she´s now just a warm-up act for serious candidates. Sad.

Would not want to be President Obama´s caddy today. Psychologically there is nothing worse for a black man than to be belittled by a white woman. She unmanned him and that is a wound that will fester. He´ll need to do something to prove himself now.

“Journalist” Howard Kurtz predictably keeps in lockstep with the kneejerk Sarah Palin-can’t-possibly-be-a-serious-person-to-be-taken-seriously crowd. Whatever their weak, flimsy, insubstantial reason… Palin Envy or Abortion Remorse or something else of equal or even lesser relevance, “Howie” and his ilk are still stuck in the now-out-of-touch 1960s or even earlier. Ridicule is so yesterday.

It is truly amazing how much the lib media still hates Sarah--and how AFRAID they are of her!

The media gave her about one week of neutral press back in 2008 when she was the surprise running mate of Senator McPain, and ever since they have been on a "search and destroy" mission trying to ruin her.

I so hope that Senators Cruz, Rubio, Lee and company can survive the now and forever "media anal exam" and Rush calls it--the problem is that its not just the media anymore...its the "old bulls" of the republican party after them as well!

I´ve always thought that the libs/media figured out early on that Sarah was a huge threat to Hillary becoming the first woman president someday and therefore had to work to destroy her as soon and totally as possible.
To me, she is, among so many other positive things, smart, funny, accomplished, honest, sincere and really easy on the eyes - all things that Hillary isn´t and never will be.

Ronald Reagan was a better man than I. He was better looking, smarter, funnier, and--most important--braver. His singular courage in facing death by assassination left me humbled and proud. I honored Reagan for his gifts because everything he was became a gift to me over time.

Sarah Palin is a better women than her critics. She is better looking, smarter, funnier, and braver than they are. Palin´s singular courage in keeping her disabled baby leaves them envious and ashamed. So they find reasons to hate her, and in so doing reveal themselves. That which is conservative in them, and should respond to Palin´s rhetoric, is undone by that which is small in them and resentful of her gifts.

I pity them.

Howie´s "disjointed" was a great collection of zingers and truths that all found their respective targets like a shiv to the gut.

Her greatest political strength may not be as a candidate, but as the "warm-up act" not held to the constraints of trying to win office.

Sarah is done with political office. But she isn´t done on the political scene. She knows she is the voice of the conservative people of this country, and she speaks for them-simple and straightforward-no pretty speeches and meaningless words. Unless you understand the message, you won´t understand Sarah and why she has staunch supporters and admirers.

Nevada rancher: “I did not graze

The fairest explainer I’ve found on the Bundy saga is Becket Adams’s post at TheBlaze. If, like me (and Ace), you came to this story after it had already been hyper-polarized and weren’t sure whose facts to trust, try Adams’s Q&A. He plays it straight. In one sense this is complicated — land ownership, grazing rights dating back decades, a court battle, the feds tasing a Bundy family member, even a Harry Reid cameo — but after listening to this Glenn Beck interview with Bundy, it seems surprisingly simple. Bundy stopped paying the BLM in 1993 for grazing rights on

Antiquated law adds billions to fuel costs

An obscure 1920 law is costing Americans billions of dollars a year in higher fuel costs. The Jones Act requires that cargo shipped from one US port to another be carried on a US-registered vessel, built, owned and crewed by Americans. This protectionist law was designed to support a shipbuilding industry that no longer exists — but inertia and labor-union muscle keep it on the books. The law mainly makes the news in time of crisis. It delayed shipment of road salt to New Jersey during a shortage last winter — happily, without incident, as the weather moderated before the Garden State

Ukraine and the Obama doctrine: Our president´s

The continuation of Putin’s push into Ukraine makes it official. The Obama Doctrine is to ignore an international crisis or go to war. There is no in between. And President Obama’s been clear that he isn’t going to start any new wars. The recent bipartisan push by Congress to help Ukraine, however, was the latest signal that the president´s foreign policy is unraveling and his doctrine of ‘war or ignore’ is making America less safe. The bill had a huge majority in Congress (378-84 in the House, 98-2 in the Senate) pushing back against a slow and disinterested White House.

WASHINGTON -- People with old Social Security debts are getting a reprieve - for now. The Social Security Administration had been participating in a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago. On Monday, Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin said she was suspending the program while the agency conducts a review. Social Security recipients and members of Congress complained that people were being forced to repay overpayments that were sometimes paid to their parents or guardians when they were children.

State GOP gets to vote

To secede or not to secede. That will be the question for Wisconsin Republicans at next month´s convention. Earlier this month, the party´s Resolutions Committee voted in favor of a proposal that says the state party "supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin´s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede." A version of the so-called "state sovereignty" resolution was first OK´d last month by one of the state GOP´s eight regional caucuses as an assertion of the state´s 10th Amendment rights. The measure also calls for ending all mandates that go "beyond the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers of the federal government."

How Being a Doctor Became

Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad? By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students

Infamous boxing promoter Don King isn’t holding a grudge against the Rev. Al Sharpton in the wake of a blockbuster report detailing how Sharpton snitched on King to the FBI. King on Sunday called the revelations about Sharpton’s 1980s work as a paid undercover informant “old news” and praised Sharpton as a “stand-up person” for secretly recording mobsters with a customized Hartmann briefcase provided by the feds. “Al Sharpton had enough guts to fight, if it is true, to fight for others spending their ways and means to take away opportunity,” King told The Post. “How many people would put

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
