I think of the Palins as the common clay of the New West.

There may have been a time when the Kennedys were close to royalty, but then the bulk of them died in various manners.

That's because the Palins have turned into Reality TV divas through their own efforts. Nobody forced them to go on all those shows.

And who still thinks about the Kennedys?

Sarah Palin is awesome.

Remember that time she got elected and served her entire term as Governor?

Or that time she fleec....er.....collected a few million dollars to explore the idea of deciding if she wanted to run for President, then decided against making a decision about deciding to run and then returned all the money that
people gave her.

She is a totally stand up person, a true patriot. You can tell because she always has a tiny, little American flag pin on.
That is the sign of a true American. Tiny flag pins.

sarah palin is:

• greedy
• narcissistic
• cynical
• duplicitous
• vain
• petty
• cruel
• ignorant
• selfish
• calculating
• manipulative
• delusional

in short, she is one of the worst humans currently walking the earth and represents virtually everything wrong with america at the dawn of the 21st century.

You could make a pretty effective "Dangers of Alcohol" feature using only members of the Kennedy family as examples.

Isn't that specifically the image the Palin's wanted to foster?

I don't recognize any American royalty. This is the U.S. of A., we're not supposed to have any aristocrats or monarchs.

\I know, I know, reality can be different from my ideals ...
 
2012-08-03 10:22:00 AM
The Kennedys were capable of showing a little class, a concept completely alien to the mouth-breathing Palin family.

Kennedys: Multiple members of the family elected to and served full terms in various levels of government. Never appeared on trashy reality TV.

Palins: One member elected to one office where she didn't serve a full term. Constantly appear on trashy reality TV.


I'd say those critics nailed it.

The only person I know of who's truly, and with honesty, turned her lower list status around to her benefit is Kathy Griffin.

The Palins aren't that smart. They aren't performance artists, mocking the medium they've chosen. They're attention whores and grifters to the core. They aren't talented, clever, or interesting enough to be anything greater than that.
 
2012-08-03 10:28:46 AM
I don't know if I speak for all or most liberals, but I don't want ANY royalty. As for the Palins, they're right up there with Pawn Stars and Catfish grapplin.

I was born in 1980. Reagan doesn't mean sh*t to me and by the time I was cognizant of politics, most of the Kennedies were already dead. I'm 31. Let's deal with reality as it exists now.

Wouldn't the Bushes be a significantly more comparable family to the Kennedys? The Palins are probably closest to the family of the 18 yr old going on 50 blonde hooker that married the dude from Green Mile (or which ever movie it was).

I think that's naturally derived from the other qualities.
 
2012-08-03 10:44:01 AM
There are no "the Palins." Sarah Palin served for half a term as governor of Alaska and that's it. She ran a failed vice presidential campaign, she doesn't have anything to show for herself that wasn't given to her by the sycophantic right-wing media, and her family clings to her flimsy coattails.

I don't approve of dynasties, but the Kennedy family was undeniably a dynasty. Multiple prominent leaders and decades of service impressive enough that, despite multiple embarassments, the name still commands a measure of respect.

It's like comparing the Sheen family to the Sham-Wow guy. Both have embarrassments, but only one of them actually did anything particularly respectable.

Now on a more serious note, if you look at JFK's policies, he would be a card carrying Republican today.

2012-08-03 10:46:46 AM
I'm not going to romanticize the farking Kennedys. They were a family of bootleggers who grew into a dynasty of drunken idiots who really were for a while our "royalty". JFK got us into Viet Nam (not that his successors did anything to get us out of it) so fark the Kennedys. They along with the Bush family is the dynasty horseshiat that that we fought a war against the British to get away from.

But the Palins are just white trash assholes clinging to their 15 minutes of fame based on nothing but the hatred of all things not Republican. And hatred of book lernin. And elk, apparently.

Even the Bushes compare favorably to the Palins. It's the difference between a big family of shifty bastards who did a few remotely respectable things and a single person and her spawn who fell upward thanks to a terrible decision and started believing their own press. Palin's a bigger phony than the Bushes or the Kardashians, because she got lucky two times- once when getting elected to a state with a population several factors smaller than the country's largest cities and once when John McCain pulled the biggest boner in presidential campaign history. She fell upward until she hit the ceiling of failure, and the right-wing media became so enamored with her they kept her pushed against that ceiling instead of letting her fall back down again.

For anyone who doesn't want to RTFA, here it is in a nutshell...

'Life's a Tripp' sucks, but that's not the fault of Bristol Palin, it's the Lifetime Networks fault for purposely sandbagging the show by showing Bristol's kid drop an F-Bomb.

Saying that 'Life's a Tripp' sucks means that you are a part of some liberal Hollywood machine that only handed out reality TV gigs to the Palins like they were Ecstasy tabs at a rave because they wanted the shows to fail and make the Palins look bad.

The Kennedys suck, and the Kardashians are true patriotic genius in human form.

And then there was something weird and rambling about Dancing With the Stars, Mararet Cho, and Bristol doncing with Chaz Bono, or something like that.
