Where Were You In 2008?

Sarah Palin had significant influence on the outcome of the US mid term elections.



Whether that influence was harmful or beneficial is open to debate with Karl Rove and others claiming that the Tea Party Senate candidate selections backed by Palin prevented the GOP from achieving control of the Senate. (In other words, like some of our own extremist Actoids, they may have been ideologically pure but they were unelectable.)

CBS News has a contra view, exemplified by this quote:-

"My observation of Sarah Palin," says CBS News political analyst Nicolle Wallace, "is that she is one of the shrewdest political figures in our country at this moment. She's also one of the most electric."

All Adolf can say is CBS have got a bloody nerve. What a far cry from the scurrilous pursuit of Sarah Palin in which they and their antique media sculduggerous mates engaged in 2008.

As an aside, I found the most uplifting and enjoyable moment in the Fox coverage to be a joint interview with Sarah Palin and Geraldine Ferraro, the only two women to have run for election as Vice President. Both were scathing of their treatment at the hands of an irresponsible media.

Nicolle Wallace is not an unbiased commentator. She was a senior advisor to the McCain/Palin campaign.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

NR
So don't you think she would be eminently qualified to have such an opinion? Do you think she is wrong?

Are you inferring that all the journ0listic rabble who sought to denigrate both Palin and Ferraro were unbiased upright professionals?

Adolf, your comment re Actoids is deliberately incendiary (and no, I'm not a party member).

They're more like the Libz than even the most ideological Actoids. Ideologically pure, but completely unelectable.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Gantt, well........yes.

BUT

I did say 'extremist Actoids'....

"So don't you think she would be eminently qualified to have such an opinion?"

Is that a trick question? That would be a bit like saying someone like Brian Edwards is the most qualified person to give a summation of Clarks political nous.

And its a bit hard to take any politican seriously who embraces and supports 'prayer warriors'. She would be more polarising and divisive than Obama is, but alot more unpredictable given her lack of political experience and nous.

You might also want to note that the journalist rabble is equally damning to both sides in the states, just look at how many Americans believe Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya as a result of Fox news etc.

I hear Hillary's applying for asylum while she's here :)

"just look at how many Americans believe Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya as a result of Fox news etc."

Could you link an example of one of the Fox people making that assertion please?

"You might also want to note that the journalist rabble is equally damning to both sides in the states,"

I guess you aren't including CBS, NBS MSNBC CNN and ABC as journalists, then.
Come to think of it,, you may have a point there!

onelaw4all said...

*edit*

NBS should read NBC.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Sarah J

They believe he's a Kenyan because of his steadfast refusal to release a copy of his original birth certificate.

Nuthin to do with Fox.

Great piece by a very astute friend of mine on how the Tea Party nutters cost the Republicans a real win.

onelaw4all said...

How would getting RINOs elected be a "real win", James?

The "real win" is to either have the establishment wake up to American desire to return to smaller government/less spending and satisfy that demand,, or stand aside.
These midterms are only the opening gambit.

Anonymous said...

Actually I was very suprised to see Bill O Reily destroying the Obama birth certificate myth. I guess Adolf still hasn't seen that one yet.

Although I guess Adolpf also believes the birth notices in the papers when he was born were also part of a conspiracy stretching back some 50 years.

onelaw4all said...

Incidentally, your "astute" friend seems to keep trying to bang away with the Progressive meme that Tea Party candidates/grassroots people are "extreme right wing" and "radicals" which shows the depth of their analysis right there..

Where-ever it was Kris Fa-afoi was there

Sarah J, it's not Kenyan, it's Keynesian.

Nancy Pelosi doing her best not to end up like the Wicked Witch of the West:

I can do this all day...

Nicola said...

Have you got anything decent? that last video was just lame, like Palins Russian gaffes a dime a dozen.

Not going to bother watching anymore unless you reference them and they are far better than that one.

onelaw4all said...

Are you responding to Dex, or myself?

Nicola said...

Thought I made that obvious re the Palin reference. I like O'Reily but he's no John Stewart and that video was just boring and lame.

onelaw4all said...

Wasn't posting it to be entertaining, and it wasn't a "gaffe" per se.

It was an example of Pelosi putting on display a combination of her contempt for the intelligence of the US voter, clearly flapping around the edges of her "spiritual mysticism" going to great pains to avoid mention the J or G word (can't alienate her ideological base, after all)

She would be as much of a practicing Christian as I am, but chose to try and pose that way to justify her "social justice" programs via the administration's program of Progressive infiltration of US churches.

WAKE UP said...

"She would be more polarising and divisive than Obama is..."

Yeah right. What's more divisive than a President who is half white/half black, but pretending to be WHOLLY black and at the same time claiming to be "post-racial"?

----------------
"... but a lot more unpredictable given her lack of political experience and nous"

Yeah right. Let's see...
Sends Churchill’s bust back (how DARE he - that belongs to the American people!). Goes to Cairo to shoot America down (with script written by Imam Rauf). Bows to Saudis. Pro-mosque comments at a Ramadan dinner. Troops unable to vote in the mid-terms. Won't prosecute the Black Panther intimidators. Won't comment on the undesirability of the Ground Zero mosque (coward!).

Well, Sarah, if that's the kind of "predictabilty" and "political nous" you want, you're welcome. Thank God it's nearly over.

WAKE UP said...

I forgot: also, can't bring himself to read the Prologue properly, in its full glory. (Traitor!)

WAKE UP said...

And: tells NASA to turn the space programme into a Muslim outreach programme. (Excuse me? This, to people whose sole aviation achievement is to get bombs onto aeroplanes that their own backward culture couldn't invent.)

Yep, he's a really stable, predictable, politically noused-up President, all right. Sheesh.

WAKE UP said...

And of course, right now he's wasting millions of dollars fleeing to Mumbai after the worst election result for his party in decades.

Yep, predictability and political nous all right. Spare me.

I can almost see you with a pair of phrenology calipers establishing his racial characteristics...

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

One could sum it up and stop all further argument by observing the simple plain truth.

Obama is fucked.

Anonymous said...

GIven your past history in making predictions Adolt, you've just secured Obama's re-election. Well done.

WAKE UP said...

No no Milt, I wouldn't care if he was two headed with polka dots.

I do care that he's a fundamentally flawed, divisive liar. No polity can survive with that at its head.
