That coach should sue for defamation.
 
2014-02-08 02:24:00 AM  
If it weren't for brain damage, she would have very few followers.
 
2014-02-08 02:26:23 AM  
Yeah, that's a bit unfair. Sarah Palin doesn't have enough leadership skills to get third graders to follow her command.

Dain, Dain Bramage? Dain Bramage to the principal's office please.

ABC's David Wright is obsessed with Sarah Palin.

sounds like projection to me.

It came as a shock to me as well.
 
2014-02-08 06:20:28 AM  
That is unfair.  She's not capable of rising to that level of class.
 
2014-02-08 07:01:01 AM  
Fortunately for the kids and parents she'd only coach for half the season then quit. The kids won't be too bad off.
 
2014-02-08 08:26:13 AM  
Does the coach tell these kids to forfeit the game at half-time?
 
2014-02-08 08:27:35 AM  
When he should have been lumping her in with the third graders who've been hit in the head.
 
2014-02-08 08:37:23 AM  
Man, conservatives are such whiners. "Wah! Wah! Someone was mean to us."

I thought they were supposed to be the party of independent, manly, rugged individualism. Instead they seem to be the party of panties constantly in a twist.
 
2014-02-08 08:39:20 AM  
That really is an unfortunate comment because it makes people talk about Sarah Palin.

/we can just ignore her
 
2014-02-08 08:43:54 AM  
I don't really get this. Why force a Palin angle into an unrelated story when Palin will gift wrap and deliver countless examples of her own idiocy?
 
2014-02-08 08:45:53 AM  
So, when Palin calls for Wright's ouster, can we finally say the 1st amendment is extinct?

/I know, I know, nothing to do with the 1st amendment.
//Except when it happens to a guy on a reality show.

Some people are just greedy - i don't know what to tell you.
 
2014-02-08 09:08:15 AM  
I'm sure that she will decry this and provide a soundbite demanding that he be fired on her way to defend the next Conservative talking head to call some Democratic representative a slut, exclaiming that his/her civil rights are being violated.

HotWingAgenda: Yeah, that's a bit unfair. Sarah Palin doesn't have enough leadership skills to get third graders to follow her command.


As she ages she's losing that ability for any male.

How's the wall Sarah? You're face planting into it pretty hard. Betcha you're gonna wish you learned how to interact with people not using your looks as the sole reason for them to follow.
 
2014-02-08 09:39:11 AM  
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE DOT JAY PEG!
 
2014-02-08 09:49:04 AM  
I for one am disappointed in David Wright. Going after Sarah Palin for a joke is like bowling with the bumpers up.
 
2014-02-08 09:50:41 AM  
Um. there's an entire network that does this 24/7 so what's problem here? Oh, they did it to you for once.
 
2014-02-08 09:50:52 AM  
He mentioned her in 2009 and 2014.  Dude is obviously obsessed.

look how well she led promoting abstinence... in her own house.
 
2014-02-08 10:17:59 AM  
Sarah would quit halfway through the losing season.
 
2014-02-08 10:52:15 AM  
Congrats, an article about a valid concern for your lil footballers is lost upon the masses due to mentioning one irrelevant person.
You have all been foxnewsified!

Why do people keep saying this, as if there aren't millions of Potato-Americans who cling to her every word?
 
2014-02-08 11:32:41 AM  
No, Palin is worse.  At least the coaches take the brain damaged kids off the field.

Palin rolls them out on stage at midnight on the campaign trail, and expects her older kids to raise them for her.

It's the new mantra for Fark Independents. They scream "can't we just ignore her?" in the hopes that everyone will forget that they wanted her an old man's heartbeat away from the launch codes.
 
2014-02-08 11:36:45 AM  
Were you there crymitter? If not then you really can't say she didn't. I personally would not put it past the dumb slag.

Why do people keep saying this, as if there aren't millions of Potato-Americans who cling to her every word?


I don't know why. She is not an elected official. She is not running for public office. She doesn't have that TV show anymore. She doesn't run any corporations, she isn't an actress... Well, I guess she wrote some books... and by "wrote" I mean "paid someone to write them for her." She's not in the Olympics, she hasn't won any awards. She's not a scientist, engineer, construction worker, teacher, or even a janitor. She's raised at least one incredibly reprehensible kid. She doesn't do anything for which humanity can be grateful.

So why does anyone care what she has to say about anything?
 
2014-02-08 11:42:30 AM  
WTF??! How did they dub Palin's voice to make it sound like she was comparing a soccer mom with a vicious animal? What sorcery is this?!

Well... lots of people care because they're dumb and/or gullible (sorry. I have no better explanation).

Lots of OTHER people care because anybody leading an army of gullible people and idiots is cause for concern.

That would assume they were ever objective in the first place.

Would that coach make the special ed kid the mascot just to shave a few points off the state tournament spread?
 
2014-02-08 01:22:23 PM  
Ridiculous. She's only ever made me hit myself in the head.

/facepalm
 
2014-02-08 03:05:12 PM  
Wright does not understand the warrior way.   Football is a mans game no wonder he doesn't get it.

Every time Michelle Obama announces some health initiative, there's a wave of right-wing derp artists going on Twitter or Facebook or whatever announcing they're doing the opposite of what she said.  "Take that Moochelle, I'm eating a big burger!"

So I hope her next statement is that you shouldn't drink a whole bottle of Drain-O.

I've noticed this a lot in Facebook political debates.  It's always the bootstrappy, ruggedly independent Republicans who make the biggest fuss over little lapses in decorum.  Don't like being called a Teabagger?  Then let go those pearls, get up off the swooning couch and stop acting like one, you pussy.

Tina fey has a front-row seat to the Olympics? :D

/yes, what Sarah actually said was about as stupid
//that's why the SNL joke was funny

She lives rent free in liberals' heads.

I'm guessing he's married to an ugly harridan.

Or a dude who is rough on his anus.

Yeah, conservatives like her.  Surprise!  Just like the last 5 years.  It doesn't mean she's done anything warranting a liberal attack from completely out of nowhere (and for no reason related to the story) - that attack is because (as I so eloquently put it), she lives rent free in your heads.  Liberals are obsessed with her.

To put it another way, I'm a conservative, I have many conservative friends and family, I like her and I'd vote for her over any candidate not named Ted Cruz or Mike Lee ... and I haven't heard her name mentioned once in the past year other than liberals in the media (or discussion of a liberal hit piece on her in the media).
