    Chris Matthews is going on about how the half term governor is the best politician he has ever seen and that she beat Biden in the VP debate. I do not understand him..

      Brilliant, looks like Tweety is joined at the tonsils again with the Quitter from Wasilla. Let me get this straight…….

      Sarah Palin beat Senator Joe Biden in the debates and now HE IS VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Today, Sarah Palin is hawking a movie about herself while Vice President Joe Biden is doing the hard work of governing. And Palin is the best politician???

        Exactly Ladyhawke. Why do folks keep watching the Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermans, Rachel Maddows, and Ed Shultz of the world? It is nauseating. They have NO sense of morals or ethics in reporting or commentating. They are corporate shrills who hope that PBO does not get re-elected so they can continue their fake Progressive tantrums and pretend like they are for Democratic causes. REVOLTING.

      Granted, she knows how to make money. That’s about it. He must have been drinking or daydreaming during the debates! Seriously, I think he has a crush on her.

      the only thing Bailin’ Palin can do well is make money and make people laugh….at her. πŸ™„ YOu can always tell when it’s been a slow news day with Tweety: he looses his mind more than usual. πŸ™„

      • June 28, 2011 at 6:07 pm

        Oh course Palin can make money when she have a bunch of Palin idiots who worship everything she say, stupid or not. Then you have the sorry ass media who gives her all the attention she seeks.

      Tweety just gets carried away with the visuals at times. He thought Palin’s fakey bus tour was brilliant, he loved Bush in his fakey flight suit and in his jeans with his rugged belt and big buckle. Tweet often does not think much below the surface.
      At least he’s finally showing the vid of Bachmann on his program saying that Obama should be investigated for his anti-American views and that every member of Congress should be investigated to find out if they are for America or against America. geez. And then he showed her lying about it to Schieffer on Sunday when she said she would never question Obama’s patriotism. Too late, batty Bachmann, with this new fakey sane and reasonable persona. You lie. Bachmann has made so many dumb comments lately, including the beaut of an interview on GMA today where she continued to insist that the founding fathers ended slavery and that John Adams was a founding father. And Bachmann is sposed to be the smart Sarah Palin??? Wowie-Kazowie!

        Tweety does lose himself at times. Right now he is the only show I can bring myself to watch on msnbc. He knows she is a fruitcake. He just thinks both of these women know how to use their “charms” and they will not play by the rules. It is very difficult to debate someone who refuses to answer questions. That is what Palin did. They are both tricksters, who use their “good” looks and feminine manner. They are both nothing but players.

        Sarah is going no where. Outside of Iowa and the South, I can not imagine Michelle pulling it off. She is trying to pretend that she is sensible. We know she is not. She is a liar.

        Well, as to the bus tour, it worked. She was all anybody paid attention to. Where is the REAL media? They are all frauds now. It is entertainment tonight 24/7.

          If she is such a fabulous politician , why is she so despised? I might question the disconnect, except it is the MSM that supports and perpetuates the fraud. If Sarah Palin is the topic of discussion, up is down, black is white, your intelligence is being disrespected and your trust is being betrayed.

    • June 28, 2011 at 5:48 pm

      Do men folks go through the change of life? Something has to explain Matthews behavior. In his old age, he is losing it. He will be call a mental case pretty soon. Palin the best politician he has ever seen. He must haven’t seen to many politicians. Matthews is losing it. Wacko Chris.

      Bill, I really do not think that Chris is supporting either of these women, he just think Michelle is a more sincere person than Sarah. He always kind of liked her Maverick BS. chris is totally a demo. Even if he finds them interesting characters, he is the opposite of them when it comes to social issues.

        No he is not a Democrat or Progressive if he is promoting those two idiots. They are raving lunatics. C’mon Dorothy don’t apologize for Chris. These pundits are a waste of time and the American public puts too much stock in their opinions as if they couldn’t form their own opinions. MADDENING I tell ya, MADDENING!!

      You will have to watch his Let Me Finish segment, it was really really good and to the point about what the Republicans have done and what they are now doing. Sometimes I wonder what he had to drink or if his blood sugar was off that day. He can get just nuts, bur I actually like him most of the time.

      Bad news for Batty Bachmann. She told GMA today that the minimum wage needs to be abolished. She thinks those minimum wage people are making way too much money!

    (quote) The movie about herself that Sarah will travel to Iowa to watch on Tuesday–unless she cancels her trip–is called β€œThe Undefeated.”

    How could a serious person, even a serious conservative, use that title for a movie about Sarah?

    She was defeated, most famously, in her run for vice president in 2008.

    Prior to that, she was defeated in her run for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor of Alaska in 2002.

    Those are two defeats in tries for elective office.

    But Sarah’s history of defeat is much more extensive.

    She was defeated in the Miss Alaska pageant.

    She was defeated in four different attempts to graduate from college before she finally managed it at University of Idaho.

    She was defeated in her attempt to get a creationist majority elected to the Wasilla School Board in the early 1990 s.

    She was defeated in her attempt to have abortion banned at the Mat-Su Valley hospital.

    Before her election as Wasilla mayor, she was defeated when she applied for a position as dispatcher with the Palmer, Alaska, police department and was not hired. (endquote)

    And he goes on!

      Suzann e, I love Joe McGinnis, I am anxiously awaiting the release of his book. The Rogue. He has stated that, “Jeffrey MacDonald was the first pathologically narcissistic psychopath about whom I ever wrote a book. Guess who’s second?” Why that would be her heinous Sarah.

      Personally, I think she is a very mentally unstable person, and a dangerous person to the well being of America.
