Sarah Palin Gets in a Dogfight with PETA

Sarah Palin Dogfight with PETA

Sarah Palin is telling PETA to “chill” after the animal rights organization flipped out over photos she posted last week showing her son Trig stepping on the family dog to reach the kitchen sink.

Along with the pictures of the six-year-old using the family dog’s spine as a chair, Palin spewed out some words of wisdom:

Trig is 6 years old and is a Down Syndrome kid to boot, so using the family dog, oddly named Jill Hadassah, as a booster was probably as innocent as it was instinctive. But taking pictures of your kid doing that because “lol it’s cute” instead of teaching them what is, and what is not, appropriate to climb on? Well, that’s kind of stupid, but it’s hardly breaking news that Sarah Palin made a bad decision.

But much like Sarah Palin, PETA is not one to miss out on an opportunity to bring attention to itself. The organization, outraged that the most intelligent member of the Palin household was being abused, screamed ANIMAL CRUELTY to whoever would listen.

“It’s odd that anyone — let alone a mother — would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement on Friday. “Then again, PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman,” Newkirk said, referring to a 2008 incident where Sarah Palin gave an interview at a farm while turkeys were slaughtered in the background.

Sarah Palin took to Facebook to respond to PETA’s harsh words (and throw a little shade at President Obama while she’s at it…)

“Dear PETA,

Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog,” Palin wrote.

“Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?”

Obama DogYes, it’s true that in President Barack Obama’s bestselling memoir “Dreams From My Father,” Obama writes of eating dog meat when he was a little boy in Indonesia, describing the taste as “tough”. But going from “Obama tried dog as a child during his travels in Indonesia” to “Obama actively enjoys eating dog,” is a pretty big leap. Plus, it’s not like he strapped his family dog’s crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada because there was no room in the car and when the dog suffered the runs during the trip he pulled over to hose off the dog and the car…. I believe that was 1983 Mitt Romney.

Anyways, Mama Grizzly continued her PETA tirade:

“Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar”.

Yeah, you’re real credible on this, PETA. A shame, because I’ll bet we agree on what I hope is the true meaning of your mission – respecting God’s creation and critters.

Our pets, including Trig’s best buddy Jill Hadassah, are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don’t fit your flighty standards.

Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.”

Instead of “chilling”, the organization responded by saying that Sarah Palin “knows PETA about as well as she knows geography.”

Since choosing sides in the Sarah Palin/PETA fight is like choosing between… well, Sarah Palin and PETA, I’ll just leave you with this fun trivia tidbit: the Palin family dog is named after Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, and Joe Lieberman’s wife, Hadassah. WTF?!?

Sarah Palin’s America: Baptizing Terrorists Since 2001

Sarah Palin Baptizing Terrorists

Speaking at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention last week, Sarah Palin gave America a taste of what life would be like if she were in charge – and it involves baptizing terrorists via waterboarding.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee let terrorists (and the NRA crowd) know how the United States would deal with their enemies if she were president.

“They obviously have information on plots to carry out jihad,” Palin said of terrorists. “Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

First, thank God that’s a hypothetical. Second, that wasn’t even the dumbest thing she said at Saturday’s NRA rally.

According to Palin, baptizing terrorists is a smart solution to the war on terror but creating gun-free zones in schools and other public buildings is “stupid on steroids.

“Maybe our kids could be defended against criminals on the spot if more Mama Grizzlies carried,” she said, firing up the crowd at the Indianapolis convention. “And [the] Obama administration wants you ID’d for that? Well, then go ahead and carry a sign too. A sign that says ‘Yeah, I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.’

Palin also went after Joe Biden’s recent advice to fire in the air to scare off attackers by saying:

“Just aim up in the air – that was his directive, his advice. Well, fine, Joe Squirt Gun, if your rapist is a bird.”

So always carry a gun, kill everyone you see as a threat, and baptize terrorists whenever the opportunity presents itself. Got it.

But Sarah Palin’s not the only one going gun crazy these days. The great state of Georgia just passed one of the biggest expansions of gun rights, dubbed the “Guns Everywhere” bill. The Guns Everywhere bill is exactly what it sounds like. The bill will now allow Georgians to carry firearms in schools, bars, churches, airports and government buildings – basically everywhere. Well, everywhere except the state Capitol. The lawmakers who passed the Guns Everywhere bill don’t want any gun-wielding maniacs coming into their place of work – that would be too dangerous.

Sarah Palin: Reality TV Star. Take Two.

Reality TV Sarah Palin

If at first you don’t succeed, try another reality TV show! Sarah Palin is returning to the small screen hosting Amazing America on the Sportsman Channel next year.

Sarah Palin recently signed on to host Amazing America – the amazing part being that someone would let her star in another reality TV show. The outdoorsy show will take Palin out of Alaska to give viewers a coast-to-coast tour of people and stories that “reflect her passion” for what makes America great. Palin will celebrate the “red, wild and blue” lifestyle by profiling stories related to hunting, shooting and fishing.

“The network showcases a lifestyle that I love and celebrate every day and it’s great to be a part of their team,” Palin said in a statement provided by the network.

Other working titles for the show included: The Search for Relevancy, I Need More Money, and Sarah Palin: From Vice Presidential Candidate of the Republican Party To… This. 

The Sportman Channel is pretty pumped to have the ex-Vice Presidential candidate on board. Channel CEO Gavin Harvey said in a statement that the network is “ecstatic and very proud” Palin picked their station to make her triumphant return to reality TV.

“Governor Palin is one of America’s most popular leaders, whose powerful love of country and passion for the great outdoors is inspiring to millions and millions of people,” Harvey said.

“As a sportswoman, humanitarian, and patriot who has visited every corner of the USA, there is no one more qualified to host ‘Amazing America’ than Sarah Palin.”

Well she’s definitely more qualified to host a hunting show than being the Vice President, so it’s a step in the right direction.

Amazing America will deput in April 2014. So far, the Sportsman Channel has ordered 12 episodes of the series but the former Alaskan Governor doesn’t have the best track record for reality TV shows. Her last attempt at reality TV, the short-lived series about her home state, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, only made it to 8 episodes before being cancelled.

Still, it fared better than Rob Ford’s one episode trainwreck, Ford Nation.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner (aka Nerd Prom) Was a Success

Obama at Nerd Prom

At the 99th annual White House Correspondents’ dinner Saturday night, affectionately (?) nicknamed Nerd Prom, Obama brought on the laughter… and the tears.

Entering to the rap track “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled, Obama launched into a series of jokes, taking aim at Republicans, the media, and himself.

On spending time with Republicans: “Some folks still don’t think I spend enough time with Congress. ‘Why don’t you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?’ they ask,” Obama said. “Really? Why don’t you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?”

On the media: “I know CNN has taken some knocks lately but the fact is, I admire their commitment to covering all sides of the story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate.”

On growing old: “I look in the mirror and say I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be,”

It wasn’t all fun and games for the President though. Obama closed by paying tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing as well as the recent tragedy in Texas, praising everyone from first responders to local journalists (minus CNN) for serving the public good.

The usual assortment of journalists, Hollywood types, Cabinet members, governors, members of Congress, and for some reason the Gangnam Style guy attended the dinner. But one person was noticeably absent… Well, actually nobody noticed until she started tweeting about assclowns.

Sarah Palin, upset that her invite got lost in the mail, took to Twitter to express her disgust with Nerd Prom. 

“That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom” 

Palin Hates Nerd Prom

But most people (particularly Tom Brokaw) were just thankful that Lindsay Lohan didn’t ruin another White House Correspondents’ dinner.

Watch President Obama’s comedy routine below, along with a sneak peak at the new Obama movie, starring Daniel Day Lewis as Obama and Tracy Morgan as Joe Biden.

Rounding Out the CPAC Roadshow…

CPAC 2013

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held over the weekend at the Gaylord Convention Center, is a breeding ground of current and future GOP leaders, all coming together to discuss the conservative agenda. Although lately it seems like more of a failed candidate roadshow.

 

And rounding out the “most interesting” speakers of the weekend:

Bachmann CPACMichele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann bounded onto the stage full of enthusiasm as the music of tween pop starts One Direction blared in the background.

Bachmann ripped into the Obama administration for cancelling the White House tours – something almost every Republican seems fired up about. I guess it’s the only way a Republican can get into the White House these days.

“We are paying someone to walk the president’s dog, but we can’t pay for a veteran to go on a White House tour?”

Aside from that, Bachmann spoke about the Benghazi incident, tried to paint gun control as a women’s issue, and criticized the president’s taxpayer-funded lifestyle of excess.

But mostly she just shouted stuff about love.

“This is our movement, the movement of love, the movement of care. We do this because we love each other and we love our nation!”

Santorum CPACRick Santorum

Rick Santorum gave an emotional speech dripping with social conservatism. No surprise there.

In his ode to traditional values, Santorum blamed America’s problems not on the economy but on moral rot of modern society.

Santorum warned: “for those in our movement, who want to abandon our moral underpinnings, what does it profit a movement to gain the country but lose our own soul?”

Mittens CPACMitt Romney

In his first public speech since the election, Mittens returned to CPAC as a defeated candidate but tried to keep things fairly positive.

“My optimism about America wasn’t diminished by my campaign. In fact, it grew.”

Mittens acknowledged the fact that he probably wasn’t he best person to offer advice on a winning strategy and apolologized for losing the election.

 “I’m sorry I won’t be your president, but I will be your coworker and work shoulder-to-shoulder alongside you.”

Awwww. Mittens.

Palin CPACSarah Palin

There’s nothing like a good ole folksy speech to fire up the crowd, and this year Sarah Palin did not disappoint. Palin took the stage amid a round of cheers, giving a populist speech criticizing the president and Karl Rove but not really offering any specifics on conservative policies.

As usual Palin was critical of the Washington elites:

“We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television.” Has Sarah Palin forgotten about her short-lived reality TV “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”?

And Barack Obama was no exception:

“Mr. President, we admit it: you won. Accept it. Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.” Palin said as she read from her teleprompter.

Palin also drank a 7-11 Big Gulp during her speech. Either she was sticking it to Mayor Bloomberg or she was afraid of pulling a Marco Rubio.

And just when you thought CPAC couldn’t get any better, she throws in a sex joke about her and her husband Todd.

“He got the rifle, I got the rack.”

Sarah Palin Tackles the War on Christmas

Sarah Palin - War on Christmas

It’s never too early to start your holiday Christmas shopping, especially when Sarah Palin is set to release a new book entitled “A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas”.

In a last ditch effort to appear relevant, Sarah Palin has set out to put the Christ back in Christmas. The former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor’s third book “will be a fun, festive, thought-provoking book, which will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas.” That was obviously a Sarah Palin quote. Nobody else would ever say that. And you know it’ll be great book considering A. the author and B. the capitalization in the title for EMPHASIS. All the great writers do that, right?

HarperCollins, who also published Sarah Palin’s previous books “Going Rogue” and “America by Heart”, announced that the book will criticize the over-commercialism and homogenization of Christmas and call for a renewed emphasis on the religious importance. It will be released in November, just in time for the Christmas shopping season!
