a mark of madness?

Mark Halperin’s obsession with the Alaskan half-termer is …. well …. bizarre. He must be the last man alive who takes this creature seriously.

His headline story at the moment on The Page is not about the reaction to the President’s speech on the Middle East, it’s not about the President’s meeting today with PM Netanyahu, it’s not about Jon Huntsman’s interview on GMA, it’s about the half-termer telling Fox (who else?) that she has ‘fire in her belly’. I kid you not, that’s his lead story, under the headline ‘Woman of Fire’.

    Mark Halperin is nothing but an arrogant buffoon and for a few months now I’ve seen the light and turned the channel as soon as I see his mug on my screen

      This is the same guy who praised Palin’s “mama grizzly” ad, saying that it would have a powerful effect on women in general. He is not credble. He is definitely obssessed with this quitter/loser.

    At first I used to think Halperin had common sense and made important observations on the political landscape, but now I think he’s a paid repug troll masking as a “reasonable political analyst”… He makes me sick half the time. He really is obsessed with the quitter… it’s kinda disturbing to watch on tv.

    He’s just always wrong about the GOP. He always believes everything they tell him. I don’t pay a lot of attention to his analysis, but I like the blog for a quick glance at whats newsworthy. I rarely go to HuffHo anymore, nor Politico that much, but I do visit Time a couple times a day.

    He’s still mocked for saying “It’s good news for John McCain” during the 2008 campaign so many times. No matter the event, it was always good news for John. Most notable, when the media brought up the number of homes he had, he said this type of “personal attack would backfire on Obama” and he felt it was “good news for John McCain”????? John Cole still brings this up occasionally as it was so bizarre watching him on a Sun. show saying this! heh

    You’ve got to read the comments under HuffPo’s “Fire in the belly” story. HILARIOUS!!!


    I swear I don’t think I can keep laughing this hard, from now through Nov. 2012. 🙂

      Oh my goodness, those comments are HILARIOUS! I could only look at two pages of them as I now feel like I need to go to confession and I am not even a practicing catholic! I do not like negativity and meanness, but those comments are very, very funny regarding the half termer.

      I subscribe to Huffington Post and would have seen the caption for this article. Knowing me, I would have by-passed it because, “a little bit of Palin goes a long way with me.” So thanks for posting the link, causing me to check it out. Well, I couldn’t stomach it for too long; however, based on what I watched, Palin is comical.

      If I were to judge Palin on her policies and leadership as Mayor of Wasilla and Governor of Alaska, not knowing anything else about her, her credentials would not be impressive to me. One thing in particular that is troubling is the fact that she permitted her husband to function as the “shadow governor,” when he was not elected to hold office. She permitted him to have too much involvement in the daily operations of the governor’s office! What would she permit him to do or to have access to as “first man”?

      Stating that the GOP’s platform is steering the country in the right diction causes me to concern! Steering America towards a totalitarian, autocratic, dictatorial, one-party rule government and a “have and have not” society is not the America in which I want to live nor is it the America in which I would want for the next generation.

      So, based upon what I watch, Palin helped to solidify my view of her as a candidate and all of the current and potential GOP/TP candidates for president.

      Yes, Palin is comical!

        Correction needed!

        In my third paragraph, I meant to type, “direction” not “diction.” Sorry!

    OT: AP Alert: Tim “Paw Paw” Pawlenty is going to officially announce on Monday that he is running for President. Enter: The Most Boring Candidate Ever. It’s Funny how he’s gonna announce this when POTUS is out of the country……

      That’s still gonna be the wrong time. All the attention will be on what President Obama is doing while in Ireland. LOL!:-)

      Boring!!! More importantly, a bridge collapsed on his watch, and the Minnesota State credit card is maxed out and the collectors are calling. He isn’t getting near the WH.

    Halperin must be on someones payroll, and if not he has serious credibility issues. I won’t waste my time on that fool.

    Sarah Palin is deranged….the “white coats” need to take her away.
