If you think that's sad just remember that there is a disturbingly large number of "Real 'Mercans" who have, plan to, or are currently masturbating to the trailer.

Attribution quotes should require timestamps.

Poised. Stirring. Charming.
                     - Time

Is from Sept. 3, 2008. The punctuation was changed as well, making is a non-quote.  Original:

"The Alaska Governor was poised, stirring, charming, confident, snarky, cozy, well-rehearsed, biting, utterly fearless, unflappable, and self-assured."


Didn't even bother looking up the other two.

It really is sort of retardedly impressive, that she was either too lazy or too arrogant to meet with a Hollywood firearms technical adviser, to at least be able to fake her way through a staged hunt, in order to keep up her phony Great White Huntress persona.

No. Just no. Sarah Palin ceased to be politically relevant a LONG time ago. The Entertainment Tab is perfectly appropriate for any story involving her.

I have exactly one person on my Facebook feed who reposts her stupid shiat. I don't understand. Guy is a well educated Vietnam Vet who was a ER nurse for 3 decades. I have no idea why he likes this grifter. She;s obviously a total moron who just parrots talking points she heard from Fat shiatbaugh. I has a sad.

To be fair, a lot of people hunt like that. Once. And then their dad or uncle, who's normally a pretty chill guy, grabs them by their twelve-year-old throats, pushes them up against the nearest tree, and explains exactly how far he'll shove that rifle up their ass if they use it as a walking stick one more time. Perhaps her father was too busy keeping an eye on Russia to attend to that matter when she was growing up.

As for how it made it on the air, I'm guessing there was some technical advisor or production assistant who knew better, started to say something, and then shrugged and walked away. And hey, we're still talking about it all this time later, so you can't argue that it wasn't compelling TV.

2014-02-22 08:47:34 PM  
Already see how this is going to go. Halfway through the first season she will quit. Then she will write a book about the experience, which will flop. Meanwhile, her unwed daughter will have another bastard kid by some loser nobody that won't marry her.

It's really weird watching these people who are still convinced that this woman has a shred of dignity. Can you think of any other former major party vice presidential candidate who has followed a career track anything close to hers? Did Jack Kemp have a crappy reality show where he demonstrated the wrong way to use a gun? Did Geraldine Ferraro have an emotional collapse and go on a crash diet when Saturday Night Live made fun of her?

Maybe it's following a pattern. Think Joe Lieberman, Captain Opportunism, and John Edwards, that exemplar of sound moral judgment. Following the pattern of losing VP candidates making increasingly profound jackasses out of themselves, I wonder what Ryan's going to try to pull. Or maybe his budget is all he needs. (Ba-boom.)

That's just it.  Hospital nurses tend to run really conservative in my experience, especially in the ER.  Not sure why, I think they see a lot of the people that form the conservative stereotype of the poor, the lazy, or the drug addicted and assume the rest of society is all like that.  They don't realize that their analysis of society has an incredible amount of sample bias, so they listen to conservative radio and hear somebody talking about people who are on welfare with 100 kids who don't work and blah blah blah and think, yeah, I see those people all the time.

what they don't see are the people who didn't go to the ER for something because they didn't want to miss work.  And what they often don't see are the people who experienced a worse outcome because they waited so long to get seen by a doc because they didn't want to miss work.

I don't know why else that would be.  I guess though nurses are better paid than the average american, they still tend to live in solidly blue-collar neighborhoods where their husbands all drive 4x4 pickups and hunt and fish on weekends.  So maybe it's also a function of the communities they live in.

This isn't to say that all nurses are like that, but I would say a higher percentage vs the rest of the population is.  Younger nurses are not liberal necessarily, but they don't seem to drink the kool-aid as much as the older established nurses.  Not sure if that just represents the same trend in the general population or if we should expect those young nurses to start spouting off ignorant conservative talking points 10 years down the line after listening to their superiors, their mentors, and the high-paying docs talking in the breakroom.

surgeons and anesthesiologists are notoriously politically conservative.  Mostly a function of "I worked hard and here I am, if you're poor you're obviously not working hard enough".  Those guys never stop to think about the advantages they had growing up, especially if they came from a stable home regardless of income.  But to those guys, everything is black and white, split second decisions at work, and their political views are black and white, split second opinions.  So conservative talk radio works for them.  They are otherwise pretty intelligent in every other aspect of their lives, but they don't handle people disagreeing with them very well, so trying to persuade them that their use of "socialist" to describe obamacare is wrong is pretty much a waste of time as well.

I do too. Similar background. I finally had to tell him she is a dimwit. What is perplexing to me is a co-worker of mine, a career educator, has a Palin bumper sticker on her car. Palin, who sneered at a teacher.
