Shannyn-when those national offers start pouring in you better just ignore them. We don’t want you to go all “Sarah Palin” on us and try to leave. Wait. No. Actually I really, really want Palin to leave. But you can stay….;-) Good job by the way.
That jet engine on a golf cart comment was gut splitting – glad you had the whole weekend to perfect your delivery!
And … I was SO IMPRESSED that you managed to conclude re Stevens’ set-up:
“…it was unfortunate, I guess, in some respects that the DOJ really abused their power …”
I AGREE! A Corrupt Dept of Justice IS IS “unfortunate.” A “journalist” like you could NOT have picked a better ADJECTIVE! Corruption IS a REAL bummer, I guess, in some respects, as long as its victim isn’t a Democrat. Then, I pray, you would be properly OUTRAGED, right?
Girl, you just keep on doing whatever it is you do, doo-doo … and I WILL SEE YOU AT THE TOP IN THE WORLD OF JOURNALISM!
FYI – My need-to-remain-anonymous-sources tell me the next Excellence in Journalism awards will be ON A GOLF CART! Isn’t that weird?
And from one blonde to another, re Gov Palin: Don’t hate her because she’s beautiful. That would be, I guess, unfortunate.
KEEP UP YOUR UNBELIEVABLE WORK!
*********NOTE FROM SHANNY*****************
I spent all weekend in Maui working on my tan. After flying all night, taking a nap, I got a call from the show. “Unfortunate” was not the best word usage, but as I’ve written, it is unfortunate for Alaskans justice wasn’t served in either case. The truly “unfortunate” thing was the stool I was sitting on was tipping and I almost fell off at that moment and was a little distracted. FYI, I AM NOT A JOURNALIST. I AM AN ACTIVIST. THEY ARE DIFFERENT. As far as “beautiful” goes…well, pretty is as pretty does. I don’t hate her, I just don’t want her to be governor. I didn’t get personal about the question on her family…it’s about policy.
Just “snipped” this from Mudflats – it’s just one more lovely nugget from the Legislature questioning WAR:
When asked if he (Ross) still thinks, as he wrote in an open letter to the Alaska Bar Newsletter some years ago, that gays are “degenerates” and “immoral” he responded:
“My personal opinions in that regard have no place and I decline to state my opinion.”
Sen. Bill Wielechowski pressed for an answer. “Do you still adhere to your statement from years ago where you said they were degenerates and immoral?” he asked. Ross: “I was not attorney general at that time.”
Wielechowski asked twice more and did not get a yes or no answer from Ross.
“So you’re refusing to answer my question?” said Wielechowski, an Anchorage Democrat.
Ross replied: “That’s correct, yes, senator, you betcha.”
Why is it that you Palinbots often refer to Sarah Palin’s appearance as if it has something to do with her ability to govern effectively? Is appearance some sort political lerdership qualilfication? I must have missed that part in my college poli-sci classes.
Well, I suppose you have to find SOMETHING positive about Palin to justify your blind worship of her. After all, no one want to make obeisance before an ugly idol. Her actions as an elected official sure don’t give you much to cling to, now do they?
Oh, never mind. Given the articulation of your post this is probably going right over your head.
Great job Shannyn, a real class act – and as usual articulate and well informed. Wowzah maybe Meg S; I don’t think GINO has the stomach to actually read the truth about herself. She did look like she was on some very heavy medication, probably has to stay doped up at this point to deal with everything that has gone wrong with her public image the last three months; and escalating daily. I kept thinking, “OMG, she is going to start slurring her words”. It’s a long fall from the top.
I don’t like to hit the “looks” bit because I, too, get irritated when GINO’s qualifications include “beautiful.” It would be wrong of me, then, to comment on how awful she looked at the press conference. I immediately thought she seemed to be over-medicated, but I then again, I have a hard time believing anyone could be as seriously whacked out as she is WITHOUT being on some pretty strong pharmaceuticals.
WOW! How did you guess my real identity? Gosh, you Palin-haters are ASTUTE!
ps – Didn’t catch your response to Shanny’s insightful comment re corruption in the DOJ. You probably just deleted it in error, no prob!
To, um, akadennis – (with a nod to HistGoddess) –
Gee, I hope I spelled your name rightfgt. (A lot DOES go over my head!)
I agree, a politician’s looks should have NOTHING to do with his/her “ledreship” abilities. Pres Obama is a good example. And that ties in nicely with the blind worship thing he’s got going on.
OUCH! Don’t you just hate it when comparisons work both ways?
But, that’s beside the point. I get distracted, what with the Palin Idolitry & bowing before all things MSNBC.
Finally – don’t worry those poli-sci classes you cut. Ask someone over 40 where the “don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” originated … Hint : TV commercial.
Finally – a gentle reminder to you, as well : Don’t hate Gov Palin because she’s beautiul. And DO continue to carefully weigh the facts vs. opinions about dear Sarah, as I’m sure you do.
“Liberals are very broad-minded : they are always willing to give careful consideration to both sides of the same side.”
Thank you for responding to my first comment re “unfortunate.” Anyone can relate to little sleep, last minute call, etc and how it relates to words coming out of our mouths! (Probably even your Governor.)
Good luck with your activism.
I’ll troll no more.
