Palin’s Pitch: From Pit Bulls to ‘Mama Grizzlies’

Email this item Email    Print this item Print    Share this item... Share

Posted on Jul 13, 2010

Gone are the lipstick-wearing canines of Sarah Palin’s lyrical past—2010 is the year of the “mama grizzly” for the Alaskan She-publican and her female followers. If you haven’t seen this ad already, you can catch a glimpse of things to come as Palin builds steam for what will no doubt become some kind of big play for power in 2012. It’s a “mom uprising,” people!  —KA

The Tea Party Movement is a Conservative Republican Party “Shell Game, where either way the Republican Party wins.

The populace needs to divorce itself from the Conservative Republican Party that’s “we the people” trope doesn’t mean any member of the populace or the middle class.

Politics is representation of your constituents in their best interest and your non-constituents against their best interest.

The populace and the middle class are NOT constituents of the Conservative Republican Party.

Squeaky Jones -

What she really is is what is so typical of American conservatives.  Her philosophy is guided by one principle only - “What’s in it for me?”  That means she doesn’t give a shit about other people, about the environment, about jobs, about civil rights, about the economy, about even her own fucking kids…IF…in doing something which acknowledges that any of them have even a remote claim to validity on this planet, Sarah Palin’s checking account might go down more than 20 bucks.

Drill, baby drill!

Watching the video of heartless assholes gunning down wolves running free from airplanes is heartbreaking. I still remember Palin laughing when the Quebec radio host called her office, pretending to be the French President, talked about killing animals. She does not like Polar bears either judging by her actions of not wanting to protect them. She is evil!

I think this woman realizes that she can expand on her following with all the catch
phrases that cater to the right. Her handlers will be the key and she has to avoid
answering direct questions about policy. Bill O’Rielly made a chump out of her the
other day during an interview on Fox dealing with the illegal immigration issue. I
get the feeling he does not approve of her representing Republicans. I believe she
knows she cannot become or handle being President but being the VP alongside
say Romney, just might work. If she has the following the Repugs will have to deal
with her. By the way, also keep an eye on Brown for Prez. In any case it will be
entertaining as the country slips into the abyss.

Fat Freddy: Yes she is all for wolf killing. I have sponsored wolf restoration in Alaska(wolfsong of Alaska)as well as in my home state of Michigan since the 1980’s and then this sub-species comes along and revives a dead law in Al. to aerial hunt wolves and even had a $250.00 bounty for the left foreleg of each wolf brought to her.Current bounty price in Al. is $150.00 per left leg-how barbaric can you be?

Being from Indian country and respecting all living creatures and especially the wolf, as the wolf is our brother, you know my feeling toward her.

You can go to:Defenders of on line and check out the latest from them. They also have a site: eyeonplain, takes you to a search page with lots of info.I have also been a member of that organization for a long time. D.o.W. have inform the public of her wolf hatred during her campaigning for V.P. They helped air television and radio ads showing and telling of her famous wolf slaughter, it has even been mentioned by Bill Maher on Realtime on HBO and by David Letterman on his tv show. It is/was commonly known and talked about on the airwaves including Countdown with Keith Olbermann. She bloodlust is wide spread.

Her empathy level is below zero, yet how can she claim(not that she is) a good Christian woman when she feels justified slaughtering her Gods creations. She even lied to the sheeple public who bought her ghost written book of lies, that she is against the aerial wolf slaughter in Alaska and she is the one who started it and her successor Sean Pernell still is letting this aerial wolf hunts continue.

No, nothing good would ever come of having this sorry excuse as a human being running America. We would have W.W.3 in no time at all, as she, just like G.W.B. feels it is Gods will to wage Holy War or Crusade, on the Muslim people and other non-Christian people of the world.

I’d like to see a mama grizzly take care of Sarah if she tried to do to the grizzly cubs as she has done to the wolf pups and kill them in their dens-something illegal in Alaska when she did it and still she is above the laws of the land. This person is the real anti-Christ if ever there is one.

Every time I see her I really want to hurt McCain for unleashing this maniac on us. If only there could be a way to make him legally responsible…

No worry. The American corporate power structure does not want a loose cannon (far more accurate description than insulting pitbulls or bears by suggesting Palin is anything like them) in the White House, they want a “reasonable” person who will do as he is told.

Yes, Palin supported the gunning down of wolves from helicopters and planes while governor of Alaska.

Yes, she is a he-publican. Women of her sort possess no feminine virtues whatsoever, but then feminine virtues have no value in our society. The clergy used to be called the third gender, but I think perhaps masculinized women need their own category.

Let’s be frank about Ms. Palin.  When her aging progresses to the point that she’s no longer “hot,” male voters will no longer fantasy about lying between her legs, and will generally accept the fact that she’s just an idiot with nice melons.

Still, I wish her all the success in the world.  I believe that she is one of those candidates who the press will relish taking down.  If she actually gets the nomination we’ll likely get a few more non-Republican nominees to the USSC in a second Obama adminstration.

The sad thing is that there’s not much more positive to say about a second Obama administration.  He’s the biggest disappointment of my 40 year voting life.  Hands down.

Politics is representing your constituents in their best interest and representing non-constituents against their best interest.

The GOP is the constituent base of the Republican Party, NOT the populace, the populace are non-constituents.  It is in the best interest of the Republican Party to represent their constituent base and any member of the Republican Party will represent their constituent base, the GOP——NOT the populace.

Conservative Republican Sarah Palin is a novelty “shell game” distraction by the GOP Republican base constituency for the populace to get their Conservative Right-Wing EXTREMIST Republican Red GOP constituency back into power that is entirely against the best interests of the populace. 

The GOP will wire Palin and put lipstick on her like they did Bush II, and try to fool the people en masse,  but we the people en masse must not allow a dodo to be sneaked into the presidency that can see Russia from her yard in Alaska.

She kills wolves? What a fucking cunt. A friend of mine has a wolf hybrid (82%). It’s the most amazing animal I’ve ever seen. I’m not an environmentalist, but I am a Conservationist. If you are going to kill something, fucking eat it. If not, leave it alone. There’s no excuse for that shit.

First she compares herself with pitbulls and now grizzly bears. This wolf killing bitch should know that wolves have family groups very similar to humans, yet she has helped kill them for reasons unknown.So her true feelings about “families” has been proven by her destructive nature against wolves. By choosing the first 2 groups of animals, seems that Sarah prefers to represent “single mothers” as dogs and bears do not mate or pair off for life, as does the wolves. ANd also, since Ms. Sarah the wolf slayer hates wolves and had spent years destroying them, would she. if unfortunately put into the position of POTUS, declare open season on all dogs, as all dogs are descendants of wolves?

Say good-bye to Muffy, granny, so long Rover and Spot, it was swell knowing you Sammy,fare well Fi-Fi, but the queen of mean says you have to go, just like that mean old man from the Orient who banned all dogs from his country.

Well, I can not see why she is called the She-publican,more like a he-man or he-publican, as she seems to be the one in her family who wears the pants, as they say. That tough person act is not becoming at all and it also shows her lack of tact and intelligence to the rest of the world as well. Todd must really be some kind of a wuss after observing this family since 2008. Makes one wonder what kind of American family they really are. Not one I would want to represent America, as this person would never represent me, even is we are unlucky enough to have her placed into the job by the PTB that pull the strings and not the real American voters.

Looks like that 2012 end of the world thing may be more than just heresy.
