John Hawkins has compiled a list of 20 “most obnoxious” anti-Palin statements and they are most foul. What is surprising when you see them all together like that is how many of them come from well known people — Hollywood actors, high profile Democrats, etc. It would be easy to compile a list of top thousand outrageous anti-Palin quotes made by anonymous moonbats from the comments at Democratic Underground or Daily Kos, but most all of the ones John lists are from people who are named and are in the public eye.
It is not really the most outrageous, I think Amanda Marcotte or Randi Rhodes might take that prize, but I think my favorite has to be that Matt Damon quote about the Disney movie and the dinosaurs. I don’t know if comes across quite as silly in print, but it is hilarious on video. I know it has been posted before, but here it is again because it gets funnier every time I see it.
Jeff Jacoby says enough with the Palin feeding frenzy.
In other Palin news, for all the criticism Palin has taken over her foreign policy experience, the Boston Globe has a story today about Palin’s trip to Canada where she “advocated for a proposed oil pipeline and discussed mutual border concerns.”
Update: Jeffrey Lord has an excellent piece in the Spectator with more anti-Palin quotes. Lord writes about how Palin is being used to bash God and Christianity.
Update II: Shocking Palin revelations!! From Hockey Moms for Truth. (Hat tip: Lucianne.)
Update III: Wow. The nutjobs have gone past just spouting off and now are breaking laws and invading the privacy of the Palin family in a way that is sickening.
Update IV: Even sicker still. This one is so bad it has rendered Bob Owens speechless.
…during the show’s regular segment, “McCain in the Membrane,” a recently added portion of the program whose purpose is, according to Olbermann, to cover “the most outrageous or untrue things said by or on behalf of Republican presidential nominee John McCain,” the MSNBC host charged that it was “sick” for Palin to tout herself as an advocate for special needs children after she had, in Olbermann’s words, “gutted” funding for the Alaska Special Olympics. But Olbermann ignored the recent finding by FactCheck.org that, as governor, Palin secured a substantial increase in state spending for special needs children in the education system, thus strengthening her credentials as a advocate for special needs children.
Here is Olbermann’s smear:
Twice now in two days – in Colorado, then today at Vienna, Ohio – Governor Palin has again invoked – that is the polite term – her status as the mother of a special needs child and the role of advocate she wants to play for special needs kids. Yesterday, she said, “Ever since I took the chief executive’s job up north, I’ve pushed for more funding for students with special needs.” Today the quote was, “I sought more funds for students with special needs.”
Problem: As the chief executive up north, she vetoed $275,000, crossed it out, of the state funding of the Special Olympics. She cut the Special Olympics budget in half and is campaigning as an advocate for special needs kids. That’s pretty sick. Well, at least we do know which charity I should donate that hundred bucks to every time she lies about her record: the Alaska Special Olympics.I guess his money is pretty safe. If he really wanted to contribute to the charity he could donate everytime he lies about Palin, or any other Republican.
