palin sick of msnbc-ed

This is what I'm talking about - she's everywhere - enough all ready!

I’m getting really, really sick of it.  Everywhere I turn – there’s Sarah Palin. Not her really, of course, but another image of her, another post, another comment, another article, another scoop, ….


Am I the only one who is so sick of seeing her that I’m getting ready to throw up???

C’mon Mainstream Media – the election is over. The mid-terms are finished.  Get on with something else. Please!

Okay …

Memo to Mainstream Media and Press:

Please: could we have one week without her? One week is all I’m asking … one week without Sarah Palin! Can you do it?

First Amendment.

On another note….
Did u see Terrier is referencing an OB online newspaper called OB Exposed, which digs up local dirt online fashion? Wonder where they got that idea?

Huh? 1st amendment? Not sure what you’re saying here. The First Amendment does not apply here – it only applies between the people and the government. I guess what you’re saying is that the mass media have the right to say what they want under the 1at A, but I’m not the government. I’m asking them for relief – some halting of the over-indulged, over-abundant, swarm of stuff about Palin that’s shoveled our way.

Dems get swept in the house, so you want one of the the repubs front runners (yack!) to not be shown on TV. I get it. That was slick.

What is the media NOT reporting while they are reporting about Sarah Palin? She is like a cartoon character, it is hard to take her seriously. Mama Grizzly should go home to Bullwinkle Moose. You betcha, wink wink.

I’ll see your “Sick of” Sarah Palin and I’ll raise you one “exasperated with” Glen Beck

LOL you see the irony, don’t you?

She’s a complete disaster, I know. But GOOD GOD I hope she runs for president! And I hope she wins the Republican nomination!

If this is a country that would actually elect a complete MORON like Sarah Palin (although we did technically elect GW Bush TWICE), then this is not a country I think I want to live in. It will be the ultimate test of what this country really stands for: If we actually have the fortitude to move forward and advance as a society, or if we are afraid of our own shadow and are going to drag ourselves back to the 1940’s and 50’s…..or worse, the late 1800’s.

Logically, Sarah Palin cannot win, but it’s a social experiment I’m kinda anxious to see played out……although I might vomit repeatedly at the thought of her winning and have anxiety attacks every time she pulls close in the polls.

Being rather unimpressed with what Democrats have done with their time in power, I don’t think I’ve got it in me to be too depressed if she captures the presidency – it would be like attending a show at the Titanic ballroom, headlined by a great comedian…

Law of attraction, Frank. Stop mentioning it…otherwise taking into account the way that whole sticker thing went, Ocean Beach should have a “Palin Sighting” anytime now.

I’m proud to report that I have gone many, many weeks in a row without even thinking about this lady.


Frank Gormlie November 12, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Seth, then you must not go online or watch the news. I mean, how do you do it, if we are totally saturated with her?


BillRayDrums November 12, 2010 at 7:00 pm

Frank I think You’re allowing yourself to become saturated with her.

I heard Ann Coulter on the radio today and didn’t even get angry. That’s how much of a “still pond” my psyche is nowadays regarding such blowhards.

Stop Impalin’ yerself!


Frank Gormlie November 13, 2010 at 8:38 am

That’s a good one, Bill Ray. Yet ya havta understand, it’s not me – its everywhere I turn. You can go play music in Italian castles but ah git to stay on the ground level and listen/ watch the corporate media go ape-shat about her. The corporate media, concentrated ever more in fewer and fewer hands, have an agenda, and she, unfortunately uses them and they use her.

Frank- Wireless Mike (above) has a good point. What is the msm NOT reporting while they are distracting us with the $24 of beads. Poor msm, can’t afford to pay attention much less anything else.
