Memo to the Christie campaign: Book Sarah Palin now 


A reader emails a farookin' brilliant idea that the Christie campaign ought to adopt immediately:


[T]he Christie campaign should book some NJ stadium for a Christie rally and invite Palin on the day Obama is scheduled to show up in the state for Corzine. Hire a hard rock bands get a NJ repulican rally going.

Does Ted Nugent still perform?

You mean the dingbat chick who up and resigned today leavign her state in turmoil, rather than serve out her term? LOL. That Palin? Even the Fox pundits are scrambling to spin that (but not as stupidly as Rush blaming Sanford on Obama, or claiming that Franken somehow "stole" and election...um, recall "Sore-Loserman?")

Yes, please invite her.

Yes, TH, please keep giving this guy Christie advice. PLEASE! As I told Escort81, you want to win this election? Keep it local, keep it focused. Inviting the wingnut and um...Palinesque bumpkin hero factor will invite disaster. If this guy Christie listens to you and Fox News-izes this race, you will blow you chance to beat that bald tool.

And Nugent--who openly threatened Barack Obama but then quietly said (Um...I'm just kidding)? That Ted Nugent?

Yes, please invite him.

Please.

Then we'll see an even larger Springsteen and Bon Jovi concert in support of Corzine, and every Hillary soccer mom or African American Corey Booker supporter in Newark and every Puerto Rican in New Brunswick who's been lukewarm re: Corzine will pour out to the polls.

Bottom line, TH: If Christie runs a plain vanilla campaign, no attack ads, exhaults budget responsibility, cuts and good govt (not NON-govt), doesn't do the usual GOP race-baiting, he'll win. Easily. And the state will not be bitterly divided going forward. But I have faith in the right wing to muck this up.

Your thoughts?

That's strange. Someone tried to post a comment up there. Ended up with words on the page, but none of it made any sense.

Oh well. It was probably nothing anyway.

For once, CC has a point, however crudely made.
SP is not ready for prime time in the bluest of states.
If she's going there, she should be a listener like Reagan was for years before he became a politician up for office.

Please, only if he wants to lose should he book Palin. She is toxic.

It's fascinating to me how much vitriol Palain stir's up in the windswept, vacuous cranial cavities of moonbat liberals.

If she truly does so much damage-by-association to Republicans...like Al Franken, Al Sharpton and Al Gore do to Democrats...you would think that the media and the liberal pundits would try to help her rather than launch a vicious campaign of slurs and tasteless lies.

Hmmm...I guess that's just their style.

Link.

I agree with SR -- and with Chris Chambers.

Palin isn't ready for prime time, and she may never be. Her resignation shows this. She could have played a "long game" to establish her bona fides. Instead, she fell in love with the spotlight. Too many people in the rump of what's left of the Republican party are down on their knees before her. What's that on your chin Bill Kristol ... milk? Sarah's resigned herself to only be "Rush in a dress" -- her choice, our loss.

Link, over  

By Anonymous Anonymous, at Fri Jul 03, 10:47:00 PM:

Link again,

I'm totally open to rejecting what I just said, if in fact Sarah's being hounded out of office because of ethics attacks. Corollary is that she can't visit Rudy in NYC with left-wing media going on the attack.

She can be our Joan of Arc, even if she doesn't have a Harvard degree.

Sarah should take the challenge.... It would be a wonderful comparative test of political strengths. She should be paid handsomely too!  

By Blogger Cas, at Sat Jul 04, 07:00:00 AM:

I hope that Gov Palin would accept.
IIRC, "Uncle Ted" spoke out in support of her. No telling if he would interrpt his touring to appear in NJ.

It's hardly limited to liberals. Moderate Republicans and Independents have been distancing themselves from her for months, and even offering up searing criticisms of the former Governor. She has a narrow base that she needs to expand beyong the social and religious right if she's going to get traction on the national level.

Yesterday's speech didn't help. Point guards, refrigerator magnets, dead fish? She makes Sanford sound coherent. Christie can do better.

Joan of Arc, please. She is on one's hero. She gives we working mother's a bad name and a bad reputation. A quitter is no hero. There are millions of women everyday who work and support their families and who are subjected to humiliations that make hers look pathetic. Find a better martyr.Someone who is worth the adoration you all place on her.  

By Blogger Wyman, at Sat Jul 04, 02:26:00 PM:

Palin is a national Rorschach Test. You can learn a lot about the dark underside of personalities by reading what they write about her.

So CC says "chick," in violation of the usual professorial standards of conversation because... I don't know, when you're black it's just that much extra fun to kick white people with a bigoted comment? "Leave her state in turmoil" compared to...? California? New Jersey? Alaska is actually one of the states weathering the recession better than others. "Fox pundits are scrambling to spin..." compared to...? the NYT? WP? Yourself?
"...the usual GOP race baiting" Usual? You can point to more than say, 75% of GOP candidates who race bait? That's what the word usual traditionally means.

Mr. Chambers, you are apparently an educated man and a clever man. But you are not an honest man (this also from previous comments). You find it useful somehow to anger those you oppose, trying to distract them into minor issues. I must conclude this is because you are unable to marshall the facts for a main-issue discussion.

I am quite serious about this. I am challenging not merely your style, but your honesty, on the basis of what you write here. You may be generous, warm-hearted, and scrupulous in all your verbal dealings in other settings. But not here.

Really? Name one. Show it.

You are a quitter, "Vicki"; instead of sticking up for someone who was being treated unfairly, you let it happen because you needed to obey the Obamamessiah who was doing it. That's why you clap and cheer as people produce hideous pictures of her disabled child and post it for all the world to see, just for an example.

Palin hasn't quit the fight. She's simply changed the battlefield. She knows amoral scum like you will continue to abuse Alaska's laws to attack her. Now she can confront you directly and humiliate you in public, showing the world what "women" like yourself support and endorse with your need to murder children and your belief that babies like Trig should be killed because they're "deformed".

North, Talk to any woman who tried to break the "glass ceiling" in the 1970's. Women of my generation (boomers) who tried and succeeded were treated like lepers and worse, like we were whores. Unless you have walked a mile in our shoes, shut your trap. You all seem to forget the personal and heinous attacks on Hillary during the 2007-2008 campaign. I am not a fan of hers but the right wing media (and some members of the left) treated her horribly. I resent being referred to as amoral as I am a practicing Roman Catholic, who considers my faith the hallmark of my life. Sometimes you righties are blinded by your anger and unnatural fear of the unknown that you lash out at anyone who thinks differently from you. Shame on you.
Shame.  

By Blogger Assistant Village Idiot, at Sat Jul 04, 11:49:00 PM:

vicki, you are talking apples and oranges here. Breaking the glass ceiling in the 1970's was certainly difficult in many ways, but I don't recall any woman then who was nationally accused of pretending to be pregnant to cover for her daughter, scolded for not aborting a child, etc. Margaret Chase Smith had difficulties, but nothing like that. Ed Muskie's wife had some pretty harsh things said about her, but nothing approaching what 2008 brought. Even at that time, the national media applauded the ceiling breakers, and it was on a personal, individual level that women had difficulties.

Also, it wasn't just sometimes that it was the left criticising Hillary unfairly. The criticisms from the right were harsh, but generally substantive (though I can list exceptions); the worst thrown at her came from the Edwards and Obama campaigns.

You lefties are stoned. Read her statement. Resigning, for her, is taking the high road. As simply as I can, she is leaving the office of governor because she decided to not seek re-election and, therefore, decided it was against her principles to take the paycheck and to waste state time, money, and resources fighting frivolous lawsuits brought by lefties. Why do you fear her so? Why are you so quick to dismiss her? Does she frighten you, little lefties, with her incorruptibility? She is a fighter, not a quitter.

Web, change your medication.... You are having some delusional flashbacks to a "simpler" better time. A quitter is a quitter. Principles? Ha!

Village idiot: Also, it wasn't just sometimes that it was the left criticising Hillary unfairly. The criticisms from the right were harsh

Harsh? She was called a murderer, a criminal, fat, ugly, an adultress, a communist, a lesbian, a Marxist, a monster, and my favorite "a whiner" by none other than former Governor Sarah Palin:

Fair or unfair, I think she does herself a disservice to even mention it...When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism or, you know, maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, man, that doesn't do us any good. Women in politics, women in general wanting to progress this country. I don't think it's, it bodes well for her -- a statement like that...It bothers me a little bit hearing her bring that attention to herself on that level."

My how things have changed. Not.  

By Blogger Assistant Village Idiot, at Sun Jul 05, 07:38:00 PM:

"She was called a murderer, a criminal, fat, ugly, an adultress, a communist, a lesbian, a Marxist, a monster..." Back that up, Anon. Find me a GOP politician or even identifiable spokesperson for conservatism who wrote those. The ugly accusations against Hillary have been popular culture, no more related to right than left. You are simply assigning them conveniently.

Your sentence construction claims that Sarah Palin said all those things, but I think you meant only the last, and fairly minor criticism of "whiner" came from Gov. Palin's lips. But that's your "favorite" somehow (why?) It's true, dude.

"There are millions of women everyday who work and support their families and who are subjected to humiliations that make hers look pathetic."

I'm not a Palin cultist, but that's simply bullshit hyperbole.

Name one other woman who was seriously labeled a cheap dominatrixin a national media outlet.

Name one other woman who has been accused by media figures of faking a pregnancy to cover up an incestuous birth between her husband and her daughter.

How about one other woman who, after having been in the national spotlight for only a few months, was so throughly and deliberately targeted for character assassination as this?

I wait impatiently for your parade of evidence for your 'millions.' It ought to be good.

"a monster..."

That label was applied by an *Obama staffer*. She was then 'fired...' until the election was won.

Assistant Idiot writes: Find me a GOP politician or even identifiable spokesperson for conservatism who wrote those. The ugly accusations against Hillary have been popular culture....

For starters: John McCain called Hillary a lesbian when he told the joke explaining that the reason Chelsea Clinton is so ugly is because her father is Janet Reno.

And to your second point, if the accusations against Hillary were merely "popular culture" why are the accusations against Sarah Palin not more of the same "popular culture?" You can't have both ways, Village Idiot. She gets to call Obama a terrorist but spokesmen from her OWN party can call her a narcissitc diva?

So man up, huh? The last thing a working woman--be her a politician or a manager--needs is for patronizing men to swoop in and try to save the damsel in distress.  

By Anonymous Anonymous, at Mon Jul 06, 08:11:00 AM:

Here you go, Village Idiot. An "identifiable spokesperson for conservatism" (although some claim he's the leader of the Republican Party) claiming that Hillary is responsible for the death of Vince Foster.

Next....
