Left Mocked Sarah Palin For Notes On Palm; Hope They Start Mocking Dianne Feinsten

Obama Mouthpiece Robert Gibbs mocked Sarah Palin for the five words she’d written on her palm, as did numerous mainline media propagandists such as MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

It is frankly amazing that the media went so nuts over Sarah Palin’s palm.  It’s like a dog and pony show, with all the media dogs and ponies prancing around whenever Sarah Palin says or does anything.

One interesting theory about the “palmgate” is that Sarah Palin is deliberately messing with the mainstream media’s minds, having every bit as little respect for them as they for her.  The only difference is that she keeps winning the game, and keep losing it.

Ordinary people who didn’t have an ideological axe to grind would probably find it difficult to understand how the people who are marching lockstep behind a man who literally has to bring his teleprompter into sixth grade classrooms could see a “gotcha!” moment in five words scrawled on a palm.

But let’s get past that obvious comparison and go straight apples-to-apples.

We now find out that the illustrious grand maven Senator Dianne Feinstein wrote words on her palm for a debate:

Sarah Palin wrote five words on her hand for a speech; there were no rules barring her from doing so.  In Dianne Feinstein’s case, she broke the rules and the etiquette of a debate.  She took an unfair advantage against her opponent.  She cheated.

Which makes her a Democrat in good standing.

Since Democrats argued that Sarah Palin was so stupid for writing on her palm, I propose that we administer an IQ test to Dianne Feinstein and to every single Democrat in office, and every Democrat who tests the same as or lower than Feinstein resign from office for being “f-ing retarded” (to quote Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel).

You find it again and again: hypocrisy defines liberals.  It is their core essence.

  1. The Center Square Says:

    Hypocrisy does not define liberals. Hypocrisy defines POLITICIANS.

    Please, please, please do not make the grave error of seeing hypocrisy in those with you disagree, and failing to see it in those with whom you agree. These are serious times, we need to become serious thinkers.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    You have a little itty bitty bit of a point. I would respond by saying that there are a few hypocrite conservatives, but there aren’t any liberals who AREN’T hypocrites.

    But these days, whether we’re talking about the weather (global warming) the economy or spending or deficits or filibustering or reconciliation (a harmless sounding word that the media described as “the nuclear option” when Republicans considered it) or being the party of “no” or Sarah Palin’s palm, hypocrisy is very much on the side of the left.

    And for what it’s worth, I mock you people who were unhinged during Bush’s eight years – and who continue to blame and demonize Republicans even now – and are now so crammed up your butts’ full of self-righteousness over how we’re treating Obama. We are doing unto Obama as you did unto Bush. Get used to it.

    All that to say, you’re practicing the same sort of hypocrisy that I was talking about.

  3. The Center Square Says:

    Really? I will give several examples about which prety much EVERY conservative out there is a hypocrite:

    (1) We should cut taxes and lower the deficit. Say what??? If that works, I’m going to go on the eat more cookies and lose weight diet. Hypocrisy.

    (2) We should balance the budget through spending cuts. Show me a single conservative politician with a plan to cut $1.4 trillion in annual federal spending. Hypocrisy.

    (3) The scope of government should be restored to its Constitutional boundaries. The powers of government should be used to prohibit gay marriage, abortion, recreational drugs, certain books in school libraries, the teaching of evolution, etc. Hypocrisy.

    (4) Obama’s foreign policy weakness has led Iran to the brink of nuclear weapons. Iran’s continuous nuclear program over the past decade did not. Hypocrisy.

    (5) Democrats are “socialists” because deficits reached enormous heights 2009. Yet somehow the approximately $9 trillion of debt piled up under Republican presidents Reagan, Bush and Bush, and the $1.2 trillion annual federal deficit rate we were running by the end of 2008 did not qualify Republicans for the same disparagement. Hypocrisy.

    Finally, you owe me an apology for thinking I am a Bush-bashing left winger, or an Obama supporter. I am neither. I can and have written similar commentary on the hypocrisy of Democrats. I am a rabid opponent of most of the policies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

    The enemy is not liberalism, my friend. It is not conservatism. It is the ability of our political class to yank our leashes like mongrels. Stop acting like a mongrel. These are serious times, requiring serious thought.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    I’ll take it in order.

    1) It is simply a fact that cutting taxes increases tax revenues.

    The Wall Street Journal put it this way:

    Tax rate reductions increase tax revenues. This truth has been proved at both state and federal levels, including by President Bush’s 2003 tax cuts on income, capital gains and dividends. Those reductions have raised federal tax receipts by $785 billion, the largest four-year revenue increase in U.S. history.”

    The doctrinaire liberal New York Times was forced to deal with the result of Bush’s tax cuts by admitting:

    For the first time since President Bush took office, an unexpected leap in tax revenue is about to shrink the federal budget deficit this year, by nearly $100 billion.

    On Wednesday, White House officials plan to announce that the deficit for the 2005 fiscal year, which ends in September, will be far smaller than the $427 billion they estimated in February.”

    The Bush tax cuts stimulated 52 consecutive months of economic growth.

    I should also point out that the states with the highest tax rates currently are the states with the largest revenue shortfalls, whereas good old Texas – which doesn’t even HAVE income tax, is one of the healthiest states in the nation.

    Even John F. Kennedy recognized that cutting taxes increased tax revenues. So I guess he’s a “hypocrite” too.

    So you picked a really bad example to lead with, there.

    2) is simply a straw man as my refutation of your (1) demonstrates. We need to balance the budget by a combination of tax cuts that will increase the tax revenue PLUS budget/spending cuts. And your demand that if Republicans don’t have a plan to balance the astronomical Obama budget deficit TODAY is itself an incredibly hypocritical argument.

    The first thing we need to do is get the president who will spend more in twenty months than Bush spent in 8 years out of office:

    Consider that from Jan. 20, 2001, to Jan. 20, 2009, the debt held by the public grew $3 trillion under Mr. Bush—to $6.3 trillion from $3.3 trillion at a time when the national economy grew as well.

    By comparison, from the day Mr. Obama took office last year to the end of the current fiscal year, according to the Office of Management and Budget, the debt held by the public will grow by $3.3 trillion. In 20 months, Mr. Obama will add as much debt as Mr. Bush ran up in eight years.

    The New York Post said this:

    And these deficits aren’t merely a temporary result of the recession; the president’s budget would run deficits averaging nearly $1 trillion a year for the next decade.

    “The national debt would double. In other words, Obama would run up as much government debt as every president in US history from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined. Put simply, he’d dump $84,352 per household of new debt into the laps of our children and grandchildren over the next decade.”

    So frankly, you’re rather hypocritical for wanting the guy who will rack up more debt than every president in the history of the United States combined to stick around if you claim you actually want to reduce debt.

    3) is simply asinine, unless you can demonstrate that we had any kind of legalization of gay marriage, or abortion, or godless evolution during the days of our founding fathers. You prove that we had gay marriage during the administrations of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, etc., and I’ll admit I’m a hypocrite. And unless I’m mistaken, abortion was never legal until the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, when activist judges ignored the Constitution and focused on their own self-created “penumbras and emanations.”

    You bring up these things as being “Constitutional” when none of the founding fathers who wrote the Constitution would even have DREAMED of allowing them.

    I’ve written about how profoundly religious our founding fathers were. Maybe you should find out.

    4) George Bush repeatedly TRIED to deal with the growing threat of Iran, and this was what he got for his troubles from Democrats:
    From the Los Angeles Times:

    “DES MOINES — Democratic presidential candidates teamed up during a National Public Radio debate here Tuesday to blast the Bush administration over its policy toward Iran, arguing that a new intelligence assessment proves that the administration has needlessly ratcheted up military rhetoric.

    While the candidates differed somewhat over the level of threat Iran poses in the Mideast, most of them sought to liken the administration’s approach to Iran with its buildup to the war in Iraq.”

    So your 4) is just another crap mountain. Bush repeatedly warned that Iran was a mounting threat that we needed to deal with, and Democrats shouted him down and demonized him every single time.

    On top of that, consider that Obama was opposed to going to war with Iraq; on what basis is he going to go to war with Iran now, given it’s the same damn thing (a regime advancing toward WMD) all over again?

    So don’t you DARE call conservatives hypocrite over Iran, you hypocrite.

    5) How about if I just put it this way: Democrats are socialists because the latest Gallup poll says fully 61% of liberals and 53% of Democrats self-identify with socialism.

    Is that a good enough reason to compare Democrats to the thing that more than half of them are favorable with?

    Democrats are socialists because they keep electing representatives like Maxine Waters who want to socialize our private businesses.

    Democrats are socialists because they so wanted a president who vowed to “spread the wealth around.”

    Democrats are socialists because Newsweek triumphantly proclaimed of the total Democrat-takeover of the country in 2008:
    We are all socialists now

    I don’t owe you an apology for anything. Particularly to someone who just got through accusing me “acting like a mongrel.” You damn “I’m a purebred!” elitist snob. You have commented to my site a number of times, and for some strange reason, every single time you have sided with liberals against conservatives. So beg your pardon if I don’t buy your “I’m just like Obama, transcendentally hovering above ideological and partisan differences.” Bull crap.

    The funniest thing of all is that you are practicing the very same sort of hypocrisy I’m talking about. You denounce me for labeling you, and then in the very next paragraph you hit me with a worse label than anything I used against YOU.

  5. OhCrapIHaveACrushOnSarahPalin Says:

    Oh please, hahaha.

    Fox News is so petty they had some unpaid intern go on a weeklong search for this?

    Clue to the clueless: the “left” can’t stand DiFi, either. Can’t wait to read all the rightie blogs today, trying desperately to press this nonsense some kind of substantive issue. That will be good for a laugh.

  6. HL Says:

    For the record. Michael you are among one of the most serious and thorough THINKERS and BLOGGERS on the Internet today!
    What an utterly false statement from The Center Square. So typical and predictable of Liberals.

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    HL, I HOPE I’m not one of the most serious and thorough thinkers and bloggers on the internet today, FOR ALL OUR SAKES!!!

    But I genuinely appreciate such high praise from one I’ve come to truly respect.

    I took Mr. Square at his points, but I’m still scratching my head as to why he believes (for example) that anyone who believes in lowering taxes and lowering the deficits is a hypocrite. I mean, for the sake of argument, we might possibly be wrong, but thak hardly makes us hypocrites.

    You want to see hypocrisy, take Joe Biden taking credit for the complete success that the Iraq War turned out to be after doing everything possible to derail that success.

    You want to see hypocrisy, take Barack Obama and the Democrats patting themselves on the back for their transparency while having all manner of closed door meetings (INCLUDING CLOSED-DOOR MEETINGS ON TRANSPARENCY!!!), when even senior Democrats admit that they’re completely in the dark.

  8. Michael Eden Says:

    The stunning hypocrisy of you people will never cease to amaze me.

    Mainstream media came out in DROVES to attack Sarah Palin for her harmless five words. Palin supporters said how could this possibly be a big deal? But even the fricking press Secretary for ObamaMessiah mocked her for it. And, yes, it was ALL OVER the liberal blogs. But when we demonstrate – ON VIDEO – that one of the senior Democrats in the Senate not only did the same thing, but far worse (because she did it to cheat during an election), it suddenly doesn’t matter?

    You people have no shame, and no integrity.

    There’s really no point in having a debate with you people. You’re simply not capable of either honesty or fairness. You constantly try to change the rules at every turn to favor yourselves, like bratty children who want to win at all costs.
