  •  Hat tip to Ben Smith at Politico? (8+ / 0-)


    Anyone could have got this story.


    Meanwhile, did I happen to mention how much I love anonymous posting? I've been plastering support for Palin in every Republican blog I can find.

    I'll be spending less time here, in fact as I do what I can to get her in a nomination fight. Like Klingons say, the battle will be glorious. The Republican Party DESERVES to have Palin as its standard bearer in 2012.

    I'm doing my part to help make it happen.

    Try to make it real, compared to what.

    •  Ben Smith is okay (0+ / 0-)

      He was the NY Daily News blogger on NYC politics before he went to Politico. He did a decent job. I don't see him as an idealogue, regardless of who he works for.

      •  You must not remember the primaries and his (5+ / 0-)

        big William Ayers "scoop." He's the source of Palin's "pallin' around" BS.

        He's somewhat accountable because he actually responds to his critics, but he's after page hits instead of cold hard truth, so don't be fooled.

      •  He makes crap up. (0+ / 0-)

        He fabricates 'news' and peddles hysteria.

        I suspect he fabricates material he claims as quotes, too. I'm still trying to get absolute proof of that, and I will post a diary specifically about it, if I can get a reply from the person in question.

        Ideology is not the point here. If I thought one of the front pagers here was doing this, I'd be in their face, too. From what I've seen at Politico, specifically his postings, he's just another Mike Barnicle, Jayson Blair or Jason Leopold.

    •  Haha. I do the same. I have Redstate and Freeper (10+ / 0-)

      accounts and I try to fan the nutters towards Palin. It's hard to sound as ignorant as they do, however, and my "big words" and "logic" make me an object of suspicion at all times. I've been called out several times just because I sound halfway sane. Now, I make myself read their crap for a half hour before posting, so as to blend with the natives.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

    •  Why talk about the stupid idiot Palin who didn't (0+ / 0-)

      know Africa was a continent? The stupid idiot Palin who couldn't name a Supreme Court decision right off the bat? The stupid idiot Palin who couldn't name the countries associated with NAFTA? That HORRIBLE woman makes me want to punch my laptop.

      the party's convention platform?  Yes, yes, I know that she'll quit halfway through but lawsy lou will she be promoting the one or two planks she was involved in writing!
