Barracuda Snakecharmer Sarah and the MobBy James Lewis
If you're not laughing along with Sarah Palin's playing Gotcha! with the media, you're not paying attention.
Sarah Barracuda is playing the press for suckers, and they hate it. But they can't they leave the story alone. Result: weeks of excited headline coverage, free publicity galore, right up her alley. The media mob are cutting their noses to spite their faces.
I don't know if we have the sleaziest and most corrupt media in American history -- maybe in human history? -- but they all deserve a Pulitzer for Aggravated Mendacity. (That means "lying," if any of them are trying to read this). But it's not just their Central Party Line propaganda, day in and day out. It's also their personal wickedness, their abject ignorance, bottomless vulgarity and corruption, their lynch mob mentality -- even aimed at one-year old baby Trig Palin -- their idiotic mass conformity, and now, thanks to Governor Palin, they look like the idiots they really are. The sheer malignity of the Left and its Organs of Propaganda is being exposed every single day.
One of the most disgraceful villains at the WaPo, Dana Milbank, started a twitter campaign a couple of months ago to drive Sarah Palin out of the media -- for at least a week. Mr. Milbanks is a JourNOlist, you see. His job is not to tell the truth. Nope. It's to run coverups for the Demagogues and to destroy as many Republicans as possible. Milbank is a PC Commissars of Censorship and Propaganda. Trying to blacklist Sarah Palin is an act of flagrant censorship. That's what the Left tries to do to anybody who dares to speak up against them.
Well, last week Sarah Palin scored 263,000,000 Google hits. In the last four weeks the score is 959,000,000, almost a billion. Free publicity. No Gotcha's!
All the editors are screaming at their newsies, and those dogged news hounds are screaming back. You betcha.
Poor David Brooks is all upset. She's not playing fair!
What Bernie Madoff did to do-gooder charities, Sarah is doing to the press mob. She keeps drawing them in, lusting after fabulous Gotcha! headlines, and then flipping them the bird. This has been going on for months. It drives them to the brink of sanity. Palin is turning the tables on the press, and they don't like it. Manipulating people is their job.
Here's a brilliant piece of PR: Sarah's non-campaign bus tour. The mediots are running ragged trying to follow Palin's giant campaign-type bus, she's making headlines every day, but she will not announce her presidential run. (Not yet... maybe never...).
So the panting wolf pack goes chasing after the bus wherever it goes, the Palin non-campaign isn't telling them anything, and every now and then Sarah and her family disappear from the bus without telling the sweating jourNOlists, who can't stop running because they don't know when she's going to make the Big Announcement. (Maybe tomorrow? Maybe never?)
All kinds of complaints in the media. This isn't fair! Sarah's bus is a danger to traffic! They should slow down. They should give the press a daily itinerary.
But Palin doesn't need to please the media. She has her Facebook, she has Twitter, she has her own websites, YouTube movies, that big new movie coming out, most of all she's got the movie star good looks and that smile. Feminazis all around the country are having nightmares. What if we get President Sarah Palin? They will never live it down.
Normal campaigns have PR people to kiss the press's ample buttocks in return for half-decent coverage. The Palin answer is that this is not a campaign at all... who needs a PR guy or gal? She just happens to be driving that big bus to primary states.
Shazzam! Sarah shows up in New Hampshire, just in time to take the wind out of Mitt Romney's campaign. (She makes a nice apology the next day, but the damage is done. Oopsey! Didn't mean to do that, Governor Romney. Just happened to be steamrollering through New Hampshire with dozens of TV satellite vans on my tail!) On she goes.
Then there's the well-timed 24,000 email web dump, courtesy of the State of Alaska and some moronic state FOIA demand from the media.
Lefties around the world were salivating, sure they would finally get a chance to dig really nasty dirt about this brilliant woman -- who they're sure is a drooling idiot. I mean, she called her baby Trig! And she didn't abort him! How moronic is that?
The Left fell for Sarah's sucker play. The New York Times called for volunteers to go through Sarah Palin's emails as Governor of Alaska. The WaPo cried for help. Even the UK Guardian (a big power in the Leftist Party Line cabal) is desperately looking for data crunchers. The LA Times is wetting its collective pants.
I was afraid the mob would finally crucify Governor Palin. Who doesn't have some dirt in 24,000 emails? Can the NYT or the WaPo pass that test? Not a chance. If we ever get a chance to read their in-house emails, ugly dirt will spill from every page. These are not nice people, our mediots, and they are very abusive -- to each other, to their audiences, and to politicians. They run a reign of terror.
The result? The emails show that Palin ran a competent administration in Alaska, that she conducted tough negotiations with the oil companies, that the corrupt Republican blowhards over there hate Our Sarah as much as the Demagogue apparatchiks. If there are any honest people still slogging through that mountain of emails, they may turn into Palin fans yet. So that non-scandal kept Sarah in the headlines for another couple of weeks. Just like with the non-campaign bus, the media ended up exposing only itself. And the sight ain't purty.
How does that compare to the solid media blackout for one Barack Hussein Obama? The last election was just one big media scam, in cahoots with David Axelrod and George Soros. Obama lied from beginning to end. He lied about Jerry Wright, he lied about Bill Ayers, most of all he lied about himself. The media covered up Hussein's real life, his real Leninoid ideology, and told Americans they would be racists if they didn't vote for a pig in a poke. They turned Hussein into a rock idol. JourNOlism. Only the conservative media dug out relevant facts.
Today we still don't have any facts about Obama's blackout years in college, not to mention those mysterious Social Security numbers, the authorship of Obama's two autobiographies, how much Saudi money got through those open website portals, and what Obama's planted mole Commissars are really doing in the administration without Congressional oversight. This doesn't look like an American administration; it looks like a Chicago mob racket.
Obama has a mobster's control over the media. They know they will get hurt if they don't click their heels and go Hail Hussein! So they do it.
When Obama had Osama killed the media burst out in loud Hosannahs! like some grooving gospel choir. But you know they did it on command. These people salivate all over Obama's trouser crease whenever he rings the bell, like Pavlov's dog. They've actually said so.
It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of vipers. Somewhere down in Hades, H.L. Mencken is having fits of the giggles. Mencken was an honest journalist; but we have no Henry Louis Mencken today.
All we have are JourNOlists.
