All Other Grifters Palin Comparison


Sarah Palin aligns her public image with the heartland, but it appears the former Alaska Governor has gone Hollywood. And when she leaves, she may be taking some of it with her.

On top of an appearance on the Tonight Show and rumors that she’s shopping around a TV show with reality producer Mark Burnett, Palin and her entourage were seen partaking in one of celebrity’s lushest rituals — the Oscar gifting suite.

While the group was loading up on freebies, the Los Angeles Times reported that, “Palin’s middle child, Willow, got her hair styled […].”

You kids know how I’m always anxious to help.Β  I’ve already thought of a name for Princess’s reality show!

The Times also indicated that Palin was supposed to donate $1,700 along with all of her gift items to the Red Cross, which is currently helping with relief efforts in Haiti and Chile.

But E! Online insists, “we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag.” They quote an unnamed vendor who claims that upwards of 20 people from the Palin camp swarmed the event. “They were like locusts,” he told the entertainment news outlet.

According to AOL’s Pop Eater, publicist Ben Russo of EMC/Bowery said, “she kind of cleaned the place out.”

And, kids, over at Daily Kos, Micheal Stintson (a/k/a Symbolman) has this to say about Princess’s appearance on The Tonight Show:

Who needs teleprompters when a studio can simply insert canned laughter?

I’ve dealt with sound engineering for 30 years, as a film maker, interviewer, musician, working with master reel to reel tapes/decks at EMS Music in Seattle in the 80’s as a sound duplication engineer, or setting sound levels for my and other bands in live situations at shows. I won a Hollywood award for animation in 2000. I know sound. And it’s my opinion that audio portions of Sarah Palin’s March 2nd appearance on Jay Leno’s Tonight show were added or amplified, edited before broadcast to make it appear that Sarah Palin was more welcome than she was.

I know. I was there.

They added laughter where there was none during uncomfortable portions. Well, there was some laughter. Mine, of derision. During those pregnant pauses in her performance I was laughing long and loud, couldn’t help myself as much of what she was saying was utterly surreal, ridiculous, hypocritical – nonsense, spewed platitudes, pushed buttons. I was seriously thinking of leaving as it was getting hysterically unfunny.

After sitting through the taping of the show in the studio I can recount many portions where there was little or no laughter or response, but at the later broadcast they are smoothed over with applause and laughter that WERE NOT THERE at the taping. Groans, hoots, grumbling, or just dead silence – all missing.


From my seat to the right of the stage, by the band, I could tell that an average of 70% of the audience did not like Sarah Palin. Many literally sat on their hands.

If she wants a reality show, maybe she should have asked the producers of the Tonight Show to portray the reality of her appearance. As for the new show, I just hope that Levi will be making some guest appearances.

  1. just shaking my head…..

  2. I liked the title the creator of “The Daily Show” came up with–“So you think you can think?” Speaking of which, how appropriate that Sarah Palin was photoshopped onto Paris Hilton’s body. And people thought The President was a celebrity!

  3. Bravo!!! I had to do a double take – because Todd really looks like JD Clampett!

    I bet the Beverly Hillbillies theme song can be crafted to fit the Palin clan.

    Come listen to a story bout an ex guvnah named Sarah
    She winked & blinked her eyes & wore lots of mascara..
    Poor mountaineers barely kept their Wasilla family fed

    Then one day they were Shootin’ at some food
    & up through the ground come a bubblin’ crude

    Oil that is….
    Black gold, Alaska scree….

    Well the the first thing ya know Sarah’s
    runnin for VP

    voters couldn’t take her
    cause they knew she’s a faker….

    they all took heed
    When Katie Couric asked her “Tell me what you read”.

    Kin folks said Sarah get away from there,
    Fox newz is the place you ought to be–
    so she sold her own book
    and then went out to tea…..

    Tea party
    Lunatic fringe….

    Oh that was fun, but its late & I’m tired.

  4. Great lyrics Fran! Them thare Wassillibillies are ripping off Jeff Foxworthys bit about taking his relatives to Hawaii: The Clampetts go to Maui”. There’s a great picture of a swarm of locust over the Hollywood sign at Mudflats. The hag of swag. Why is she shopping around TV ideas when the show she belongs on already exists!! Where would Caribou Barbie go, a barbie girl in a barbie world? Only one place: Robot Chicken!

    Perfect choice there nonnie!!! The moose is the most intelligent one in the group and it’s dead…Simple”Cons”…

    I looooved seeing the Wasilla Hillbillies again – why I remember it’s debut – a smashing hit it was.

    Sarah just simply fails to surprise anymore and she just will not go away. ever. no seriously, she will never go away will she??

    • the wasilla hillbillies is one of the most requested films over here at the raisin! πŸ˜‰ i thought i had finished the simpletons poster, but it needed a little sumpin’ sumpin’. that’s when i thought of the moose, and i was glad i did, because i think it brought the whole thing together. it makes me happy that you noticed the poor thing, jaxdem. πŸ™‚

    Darn this H12 N12, had to reread the title before the chuckle factor hit.

    Not hard to picture her running through the swag tents like some old TV shopping show. OOOOO, Shiny.

    The more i see of her, the lower my esteem for McShame. Or higher the contempt, or something…..come on Nyquil.

    • no worries, geez, sometimes it takes me a few times to get my own little jokes. πŸ˜‰ what got me is that all she could manage to give for the earthquake victims was a lousy 1700 bucks. you know that all the stuff she took cost way more than that. i hope she gets hit with a big tax bill for it. she’s such a self-centered selfish bitch. i really despise her.

  7. That grifter’s going to be within my city limits tonight – I’m locking the liquor cabinet and closing the blinds, you betcha.


    • ahh geez, she’s invading canada now? maybe you should close the blinds but leave the liquor cabinet open, darkblack. she’s having her wine sent to her house, so i think your booze will be safe, and you might need the alcohol to clean out any wounds you might get when she speaks, your ears bleed, and you commence hitting your head against the wall. πŸ˜‰

  8. I was thrilled when I heard about Sarah and
    Bris-tool looting and pillaging the Oscar gift suite like a couple of rampaging gypsies.
    I have to wonder who let them in, and who allowed them to ransack the goody tables when they have zero affiliation with the Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, or even Hollywood.
    Just when I think the Palin clan can’t be any more uncouth, they pull another stunt worse than the last.
    To call them white trash is an insult to hard working white trash all over America.
    They are grifters, to be more accurate, and not even clever grifters.

    • zippy, it was willow (that’s her on the dvd cover) who was with princess while they stuffed the goods into their pockets. bristol was busy working on her tv debut. she’s going to be on ‘the secret life of the american teenager’ (abc, of course), because the good old family values people want you to know that getting knocked up without being married is the road to stardom that all kids should take. πŸ™„

      • I seem to remember my friends saying that Nickelodeon should fire the Spears girl … Jaime? … I don’t care enough to look it up … when she was pregnant.

        Yet again, imagine this … Palins are given a pass on the supposed principles of the Right.

        • the rules are always changing when it affects themselves. i bet they keep chiropractors in business, twisting themselves into pretzels so often.
