Film at 11: "Liberal" Media ignores Anti-Palin Rally  

"Alaskan Women Reject Palin" Rally Bigger Than Pro-Palin Rally

"This was the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state."

Why Didn't The Big Media Mention It?

Thanks to velvetpage and snobahr

Why, its "repect and deference", of course! (Wow, I totally can't belive that worked, too) :p

Unrelated but, really, I can not believe they actually gave her that "tough as nails/pit bull in lipstick" speech, then turned right around to tell the press she's a fragile flower and a mommy so BE NICE. Mixed messages, people.

Strange how Palin gets to refer to herself, because she's a Hockey Mom (tm), as a pitbull with lipstick, but Obama is excoriated for his remark about putting lipstick on a pig.

Completely (and, one almost hopes*, deliberately) missing that "lipstick on a pig" is a metaphor, boys and girls, for "dressing up something ugly". Hell, if anything, Palin is the lipstick...and McCain is the pig.

* Because the alternative is that they genuinely don't grasp the idea of non-literal interpretation.

That explains why they're so eager to use the Bible as a legal codex for 21st Century America, at least. :)

I really don't get how "thou shalt not vote Democrat" is in the Bible. That's really only the interpretation that the radical wing of the Republican party uses.

Total agreement. And frankly, I got pissed the moment she said that.

It just clarified for me that she's one of those assholes who willingly confuses 'being an asshole' with 'being assertive'.

And since when is being a savage, ate-the-neighbors-kids-without-an-apology dog a GOOD thing? Its like she's saying, 'yeah, I will indicriminately maul and ravage both friend and foe because I'm imbred crazy, yay!' I know what they WANT that to come across as...

But if that's how they want to do it - well, now on, I'll just say 'we love this guy, he's our demented son of sam killer' when I want to say someone's tenacious. :p

I dunno, Palin might just have a sense of humor about herself. But she still doesn't look like a person who has a sense of humor about politics.

I watched a story about it last night on MSNBC.

"There is no news in The Truth, and no truth in The News."

- Russian saying, based on the names of the two official papers at the time.
