Today on Tommy T’s Obsession With The Freeperati – RINOS versus the Freepers edition

Good Monday morning, everyone! Let’s get suited up and head into the iso chamber for another horrid helping of Freeper insanity, shall we?
Never mind the corporate logo decals on the suits – I’ve taken an excellent opportunity to pick up a little endorsement money from various sponsors by discreet product placement on our HAZMAT suits.
What with Formula One crashing and burning (heh), the fine people at Mobil Oil and KFC were looking for new endorsement avenues. They assure me that the decals will cause no major leaks in the suits, and …

Where’d everybody go?

Anyway, they’re feeling more paranoid than usual over at Free Republic.
You see, they were ecstatic when the Mirth Certificate thingy made its long-awaited breakout into the dreaded Emm Ess Emm, Now, all their concerns will be aired, and their point of view vindicated, with their “conservative” heroes leading the charge!

Here is video of Ann Coulter on with Geraldo Rivera last night
saying that President Obama’s Birth Certificate is “not an issue,” and
that it is just being pushed by a “few cranks” out there. Coulter
blamed the Mainstream Media’s lack of in-depth reporting on Obama for
the rise of those who believe there has been a conspiracy to keep the
truth from the American people on the issue of Obama’s birth.

When a key conservative pundit chose to back Romney

in her book for 2012, its only right to point out that Coulter is
showing poor judgment, at best.

She isn’t lacking information. She’s dead wrong!

Hey Ann, Explain this…

I am offering to make a generous contribution to the Kapiolani
Medical Center (supposed birth hospital of Obama) Childrens Ward in the
name of the Doctor that brought us the First half black President.
Obviously some will feel this is historically relevant and important.
So why won’t the WH give me the name of his birth Doctor? It is easily
found on the long form version of any BC.

Does Obama hate the sick children that bad that he doesn’t support upgrades for the Hospital?

When Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced her resignation two weeks ago
it was after a series of strange, petty bouts with her detractors. Many
“frivolous ethics violations” had been alleged against her, she noted.
David Letterman had told an ugly joke about her daughter. A blogger had
posted something that was probably not true. Someone had photoshopped a
radio talker’s face onto a picture of her baby — a “malicious
desecration” of the image, in the words of Ms. Palin’s spokeswoman.
Team Palin got duly indignant at each of these. They took special,
detailed offense. They issued statements magnifying their wounds. And,
finally, the governor resigned her office, a good woman cruelly
Indeed, if political figures stand for ideas,
victimization is what Ms. Palin is all about. It is her brand, her
myth. Ronald Reagan stood tall. John McCain was about service. Barack
Obama has hope. Sarah Palin is a collector of grievances. She runs for
high office by griping…
To become a symbol of this stature
Ms. Palin has had to do the opposite of most public figures. Where
others learn to take hostility in stride, she and her fans have
developed the thinnest of skins. They find offense in the most harmless
remarks and diabolical calculation in the inflections of the
anchorman’s voice. They take insults out of context to make them seem
even more insulting. They pay close attention to voices that are
ordinarily ignored, relishing every blogger’s sneer, every celebrity’s
slight, every crazy Internet rumor…

The video features an angry woman in red, armed with a birth
certificate and a small American flag, scolding Rep. Mike Castle,
R-Del., at a town meeting. She is angry, she said, because President
Obama “is not an American citizen. He is a citizen of Kenya.”

He calmly replied that Obama is a citizen. Some audience members booed.

There’s no good way to address a “birther” — that’s
the term for conspiracy theorists who believe that Obama has produced a
fake Hawaiian birth certificate to cover up the fact that he really was
born in Kenya.

Facts don’t matter to these geniuses. They don’t
care that numerous major news organizations, the nonpartisan and Hawaii’s GOP Gov. Linda Lingle have vouched for the
authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. Or that the Honolulu
Advertiser ran a birth announcement in August 1961.

No, they go
for the theory that Obama’s white mother, Stanley Dunham Obama, chose
to give birth, not in Oahu with her parents nearby, but in a hospital
in a Third World country. Then she was so clever that she ran a birth
announcement in the local paper in case someday her son with the
politically catchy name of Barack Hussein Obama II ran for president.

didn’t Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign make an issue of Obama’s
non-citizenship during the Democratic primary if his legitimacy was so
assailable? Apparently the Clinton brainiacs aren’t as smart as the

News stories suggest that the “birther” movement is

Sarah Palin: A Collapsed Souffle ^

| July 8, 2009

Posted onWednesday, July 08, 2009 3:25:18 PM byKaslin
The soon to be former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, is like one
of those souffles my mother sometimes made. The recipe warned against
premature removal from the oven because the dish would collapse.
That is the saga of Gov. Palin. Prematurely plucked from relative
obscurity by John McCain and touted as a rising star by many Republican
conservatives, Palin collapsed. Though she was treated unfairly and in
ways that no liberal woman would have been — not even Hillary Clinton
— she clearly was not prepared to discuss the issues, the command of
which — or least familiarity of which — are essential to anyone
seeking national office.
Palin energized the shrinking
Republican base, but could never get beyond them to connect with
independents and conservative Democrats who might have taken her
seriously had she displayed more seriousness. It is not enough to talk
about what has been lost in America. One must speak of a vision for the
future and ways to reach it.
Many commentators are speculating
whether quitting as governor is good or bad political strategy. Few
want to take Palin’s word at face value, that she is tired of the
ethics probes (all but two of the 15 ethics complaints filed against
her have been dismissed with no findings of wrongdoing) and the big
media’s refusal to examine her accomplishments as governor and the
substance of her views. Fair enough. But anyone running for national
office must traverse a media gauntlet — with the notable exception of
Barack Obama and his worshipful media disciples. While conservatives
can expect worse treatment than liberals, they can prevail with the
right strategy.
It was unfair to Palin to have been selected as
McCain’s running mate so soon after the birth of her youngest child,
especially one with Down syndrome, and the pregnancy of her teenage
daughter. Either event would have required more motherly attention than
usual, but both demand a level of emotional energy that no human being
can muster while running for vice president.
If Palin is to
have a future in national politics (assuming she wants one) there are
several steps she must take. First, she needs a complete makeover. The
big media will never admit they were wrong in their judgments, but they
might write stories about the “new Sarah Palin.” She should hit the
books and learn as much as she can about the modern world, history and
court cases. She should read newspapers so that when future
interviewers hit her with questions, she can dazzle them like a
“Jeopardy” champion.
What she should not do is become a cable
TV pundit. That’s too predictable. Instead, she might follow Ronald
Reagan’s example and deliver a daily radio commentary. Radio takes the
focus away from outward appearance and places it on the substance of
what is said. She should write these commentaries herself, as Reagan
did, and the outlets ought to include mainstream stations, as well as
conservative and Christian ones.
Palin should hire a speech
coach and follow that person’s advice. She has a pleasant enough
speaking voice, but the tone needs to be adjusted, as do her word
choices. “You betcha” should be banned from her vocabulary. Such slang
may resonate well with some people, but national candidates should have
rhetoric that soars and gets attention.
Lastly, she needs a
hair, makeup and wardrobe makeover. She is a beautiful woman, but
appearance should not be the first thing one reacts to when people look
at her.
There aren’t many second acts in politics because the
media tend to gobble people up and constantly search for the “new” and
exciting. Sarah Palin can be “born again” in a political sense and
excite beyond her base if she allows herself to be “baked” at the
proper temperature and for the right amount of time. If she does that,
she may emerge again and this time she’ll rise, not fall.

Acollapsed souffle’?
Great. Now I’m hungry.

  1. Any chance OldDeckHand is a plant? His post sounds almost sarcastic . . .

  2. First, let me congratulate you on your fine choice of Twilight Zone episodes 😉
    And may I suggest, that if Palin wants a makeover and scours the books on all sorts of academic matters so that she can “dazzle them like a Jeopardy…”
    May I suggest she go on “Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader”? She would do great at smiling at the kids. And I’d love to see her get a question on Hungary.

  3. Whu? Bhu? Zhu?
    I had a cat once who would watch a little desk totchke go back and forth for hours, crouched in readiness for the pounce that never came. These people remind me of that cat.

  4. Has the GOP always been an anarchist party and I just didn’t notice, or is this only a recent development?

  5. It gets even wierder.
    Here’s an “after action report” (Negro, pleease!)that consists of being rude and disruptive, and getting mad at Chris Dodd because he was nice to them.
    No, really.
    “Dodd came out later. I was furious
    Dodd is getting health care now for his cancer that most Americans WONT be able to get under this plan.
    He slowed down his car leaving while we chanted CHRIS DODD, SWIM TO CUBA or chanted DUMP CHRIS DODD
    He motioned for me to go over, and I did NOT want to exchange greetings with him. I told him HE should get the same health care as the rest of us and how HE would most likely be denied his own surgery.
    He tried to be friendly and ask questions and I refused, I told him he was destroying the country and he waved me off, looked disgusted and drove off.
    Yeah, I was angry. Wish I wasn’t so.”
