Back to Jezebel (you can watch the video there, I don’t have the stomach for it):

In Ziegler’s new documentary How Obama Got Elected, clips of which just went up online, the “Mama Grizzly” bitches and moans about everything from her disastrous interview with Katie Couric to Tina Fey’s portrayal of her on SNL. Palin believes that she is still subject to unfair press coverage, and asks “Is it political? Is it sexism? What is it that drives someone to believe the worst and perpetuate the worst in terms of gossip and lies?”


Palin also says that Tina Fey and Katie Couric have been “exploiting” her and “capitalizing” on her fame.


Palin goes on to blame even the (air quotes) mainstream media in Alaska for unfair treatment of her. She trumpets her status as a reformer, but blames the media for being too fickle and turning on her “the minute that is, that I have done something, that is, you know, back to the conservative roots… that’s when even the mainstream media in Alaska, they turn on ya. There’s so much hypocrisy in it all.” […] “Had I been chosen perhaps to run as a reformer on the Democrat ticket, we would have seen an absolutely different, and I think, if you will, a much prettier profile of Sarah Palin and the Palin family.”

(CNN) […] Palin also faulted the McCain campaign for agreeing to a series of sit-downs with Couric after the first one appeared to go so poorly.

“I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that,” she said. “And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more…going back for more was not a wise decision either.”

During one of those follow-up interviews, Palin took heat for appearing to be unable to name the newspapers or magazines she reads: “Um of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years,” was the Alaska governor’s response.

In the interview with Ziegler, Palin called that answer “too flippant” and suggested the question itself offended her.

“To me the question was more along the lines of, ‘Do you read, what do you guys do up there, what is it that you read?’”

“…Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe,” Palin added off-handedly.

Palin, who has long criticized media coverage of her campaign performance, also said she is interested to see if reporters are equally tough on Caroline Kennedy as she pursues the appointment to the likely-vacant Senate seat in New York.

“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled, and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” she said.

“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here, also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be,” she also said.

  1. nice to see Sarah “Mooseburger” Palin still in the limelight.

    Well, not really, but this made me smile.


  2. hi otto mann!
    welcome to the raisin! 😀 i guess we’re even. this nonsense made you smile, and your blog made me smile. 🙂 very funny! i will be back.

    She’s a steel bellied airhead. In 8 years she won’t be as f*ckable as she was this last time around. Although Larry King would more than likely try to boink her, I don’t thing anyone else in the media would give her a go. I predict that in 8 years, she will have at least 6 more babies and will be working part-time in a very small library or full-time, late shift at a very large truck stop.

    Let’s see, she questioned whether or not Obama was American, repeatedly accused him of consorting with know terrorists and seemed to enjoy all of the hate mongers at her rallies. She also questioned whether or not people in cities or Obama supporters in general were “real America.”.

    Poor Sarah. How did she survive such rough treatment? Personally, I’m for erecting a wall at Wasilla so she doesn’t get out again.

    …somethink else,
    what a great graphic!

  6. zwoofiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie!!!!! 😀
    my day is made! zwoofie came to visit! 😀

    you are correct, she won’t look so good once the hormones dry up, and she will no longer be as fascinating to the likes of tweety. by that time, larry king will be embalmed. oh wait, he already is. i have to disagree with you on one point, zwoofie. princess working in a library? 😆 only if there’s a meth lab in the ladies’ room! she would be flummoxed if someone asked her which periodicals they had. the truck stop theory has merit though.

    glad you liked the poster. it was a fun one to make. even better, it finally got you over here! 😉


  7. jeb,
    i don’t recall her saying that michelle obama was off limits, do you? and treated harshly? i don’t remember hearing anyone other than olbermann ever mentioning toddie’s ties to secessionists.

    remember when howard dean was running for the dem nom? his family wanted their privacy, and you rarely saw his wife. i don’t remember ever seeing his kids. he didn’t want people nosing into his family life, so his family stayed home. if princess didn’t want people nosing into her home life, then she should have kept her knocked-up teenage daughter at home instead of parading her all over the place. when you are trying to hide one kid’s pregnancy by having her hold your disable infant in front of her stomach, don’t be surprised when people wonder what’s going on.

    Nonnie, it’s just typical Rethug BS. They will not hesitate to completely destroy someone else as a human being including their own (Bush vs McCain 2000) but scream and cry about how unfairly they have been treated.

    Actually, I hope Sarah continues the Whine tour. Generally, if you want to run again after a loss, you disappear from view for a year or two with only low key appearances to tease the press. You use that time to get up to speed on issues (for instance, Sarah, you can’t really see Russia from your house) and then you slowly and carefully start reintroducing yourself to the country.

    She’s just wearing out the welcome mat and I’ll bet that if she continues, by 2012, she’ll be lucky to get and invitation to speak to the local Rotary Club. You go girl, keep flapping your trap, yeah!

  9. jeb,
    i think you’re correct. rethugs are the ultimate hypocrites. they talk the talk, but rarely walk the walk. princess sarah is too lazy and too intellectually shallow to actually study up on things so that she will have a better grasp on issues. she thinks she can win on charm alone. unfortunately for her, while the washington press corps might be fascinated by her (much as people are fascinated with animals in a zoo that they have never seen before), ordinary people can see right through her and know that she’s a phony. there will always be that small percentage who are stupid enough to support princess and chimpy, but they are becoming less and less relevant. just wait until bristol, levi, and the baby have a reality show on mtv and embarrass the rethugs even more!

    It’s looks like she’s giving birth! …to blame I guess. I hope she runs 2012. I watched that interview. Her sentences don’t even make sense. I’ve never seen a less qualified person hold office. Seriously.

  11. 😆 it does look like she’s giving birth (except that it doesn’t look like she just got off an airplane after her water broke)! she doesn’t make sense at all. what she does is to memorize a certain word or phrase that she heard some smart person use, and she sprinkles it throughout her little speeches. in that interview, it was ‘if you will’. she usually doesn’t use the phrase or word correctly. it must be an old pageant trick, as miss south carolina did the same thing with ‘such as’. the idiot press keep pushing this bs that she’s a plain talker. no, she isn’t. she’s an inadequate unthinking parrot. just once, i wish one of her interviewers would have asked her the definitions of capitalism, marxism, communism, socialism, and fascism. i would bet anything she doesn’t know, but it didn’t keep her from throwing those terms around.

    by the way, wcp, i don’t have a blogroll here, but i added you and some of my other favorite bloggers to my blogroll over at the big orange.

  12. I know I promised to post criteria for the relevant personality disorders the next time you featured Princess, but it’s time for me to start compiling Science Saturday. Maybe after midnight.

  13. no worries, neon vincent. the raisin is open all night! 😉

  14. Princess can see the previous commenter from her house.

  15. 😆 not anymore, neon vincent. he was a spammer disguised as a russkie. 😮

    I was away while you were making merry – I mean Sarah – over here! What fun! I might have added a moose head in her already-crowded bed ala The Godfather.

  17. nightowl, 🙂
    i was wondering where you’ve been. look at the slippers (or roller skates, not quite sure) in front of keith and katie. they can pass for moose slippers. 😉
