Sarah Palin Studied Harder And Knew More In Her Debate Than Trump Did In His

That’s saying something, isn’t it?  You underperformed Sarah Palin in her debate with Joe Biden. When John McCain’s chief campaign strategist Steve Schmidt said, “she knows nothing,” it made McCain’s bid for the Oval Office an impossibility.  But the key was “performed,” and for a few short weeks Palin had some defenders, most male, most who wanted to have sex with her, and all whom were willing to overlook her intellectual deficits. After the VP debate, AlterNet summed it up this way:

This debate wasn’t lost or won based on anything verbal. It was won on nonverbal communication. And the winner was Sarah Palin.
The first thing Palin did upon entering the stage was blow a kiss to the audience, then greet Biden, saying, “Nice to meetcha. Hey, can I call ya Joe?” She was colloquial. She was charming. She took control, and except for a brief moment when a teary-eyed Biden recalled his wife’s death and the experience of being a single parent, she never lost it. When Biden sighed, Palin smiled. He jutted his jaw forward in frustration; she smirked. He furrowed his brow; she winked.

One thing is inarguable: Sarah Palin did her homework, was prepared as best she could be, and either intuitively or through well-managed stagecraft did enough to fake a credible performance under pressure.  It didn’t change the trajectory of the election, but it was actually enough to propel Palin to several years of post-2008 cashing in on her fame… as a performer. Come to think of it, it was infinitely more logical for her to become a tv personality after her political career than what we’re locked into right now: a tv personality using the marginal intellectual skills of reality television and little else to become the president of the United States.

After Monday’s first presidential debate, I hereby conclude that Donald Trump outsmarted himself.  In college, you always had to decide whether to cram and maybe pull an all-nighter before a big exam, or get extra sleep.  Extra sleep seldom worked, and no one ever walked out of the class after the test and said, “damn, I studied too much and should have slept more.”  Trump must have been one hell of a crappy student at Penn if the way he didn’t prepare for the debate was the way he didn’t study at college, thinking his native brilliance and Second City Improv skills would carry the day.

Here’s the irrefutable evidence that Hillary wiped the floor with Trump as he blew his chance to show those outside of his cult that he has the temperament to be president: The Clinton-hating Drudge Report links to an article that has NOTHING remotely to do with the 100% distortive, upside-down, crazy-ass headline.

screen-shot-2016-09-27-at-5-22-03-pm

Trump tired halfway through, floundered, needed water, faded and lost his composure as an interrupting jerk. She was strong, looked great, never lost her original energy… so, just like Trump himself, the official mouthpiece, Drudge, lies to project his deficit onto her. Nice try. If you didn’t really know, which of the two would you guess was dealing with pneumonia recently, based on the strength and stamina shown on that debate stage? I’m sure if Drudge took a poll, 93% would say Hillary! Then Fox News would spread the “result,” and another of Jon Stewart’s trips up Bullshit Mountain is complete.

To complete the Trumpinization of this story… he adds the next layer of lying by denying he has a cold or the sniffles we all saw and heard. Insanely, Trump blames it on a “bad microphone,” which makes zero sense. But, you have to remember the megalomaniacal mind of an authoritarian like Trump, who models himself after Putin and Middle East dictators who dye their hair into their 80’s, always trying to project health and virility (thus the younger wife still having kids). To get a cold (publicly) undercuts his air of strength and invincibility.

So, class, what have we learned?  That Evil Genius/Ex-Fox News Creep/Svengali/Republican/Serial Sexual Harasser/Trainer of Nixon, Reagan, GHW Bush Roger Ailes finally met his Match of Incompetence: Donald Trump.  That was the worst showing by an Ailes-coached politician in a debate ever.  No study, no practice, know nothing. Sarah Palin has been a big Donald Trump supporter, but he’s kept her at a distance for many months.  Never an in-person appearance with her. Ironically, if Trump had gotten debate prep advice from her and heeded it, Monday’s Hoedown Throwdown at Hofstra might have looked a lot different.

 

Occasional Trump Dump 03/16/16

I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things

–DJT on who he consults re foreign policy

THE BIG NEWS: One day after killing it in IL, NC, FL, and MO, Our Hero was back on the attack. Trump said that if the GOP Establishment™ screws him out of the party’s nomination, there will be blood in the streets

In fact one of Trump’s supporters said there would be riots if Trump didn’t win the nomination at the convention, though riots themselves “aren’t necessarily a bad thing.”

“If it means because it’s in there fighting the fact that our establishment Republican party has gone corrupt and decided to ignore the voice of the people and ignore the process,” Trump supporter Scottie Neil Hughes told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday

Sure. Those positive riots in Chicago in 1968 were a fantastic travelogue for the Windy City. People who craved beatings boosted tourism to the Windy City™ 178%. And that wacky Chicago Seven™ trial was such a hoot and a welcome sideshow for America

The line between funny and sad has always been a thin one, but I believe we’ve long since decimated that sucker

The Economist Intelligence Unit warns that a Trump presidency could mean worldwide disaster

A British research organization has warned that a Donald Trump presidency could have a dangerous impact on the world economy, increasing the potential of Islamic terror attacks and of a trade war with Mexico and China.

The Economist Intelligence Unit released its updated global risk assessment, ranking the election of Trump a 12 on a scale of one to 25 — the same number it assigned to the possibility that jihadi terrorism would destabilize the global economy

So, the (allegedly violent) Muslims that Trump wants to keep out of the country would cause as much damage as he would. Super. Does this mean he’d ban himself (temporarily) from entering the U.S.? Gosh, I hope so

On Trump’s instagram, he released this beauty today

Is this what we want for a President?

A video posted by Donald J. Trump (@realdonaldtrump) on

Please, Lord: Someone beat the crap out of his instagram. I’ll even pay the legal bills

It does bring up the question: What if Hitler had been able to use social media? Would his reign of terror have started sooner? Ended later? Doesn’t all of this point to a horrible job of parenting by his mother and father? At what point did they just declare young Donnie “hopeless” and decided to let him become a huge asshole? Was there a moment where he could have been saved?

PBS inadvertently exposes Trump supporters sporting spiffy white supremacy tattoos

PBS

That 88 on her left hand doesn’t mean she graduated from high school in 1988. Apparently, it’s white supremacist code for “Heil Hitler” (H being the 8th letter of the alphabet, so H twice is HH or Heil Hitler)

Thhhhhheeeesssee are the people in your neighborhood…

But, it’s okay because, as Samantha Bee found out from Trump supporters, the white supremacists love America, too, and it’s okay for them to support Trump because everyone can come together on their love for America

REALLY!

(I cued it up to the pertinent portion, but you should peruse the whole thing. It’s terrific…and terrifying)

Those deputies in NC who jumped on the victim of an assault at a Trump rally on 3/9 were disciplined today

Latinos are getting naturalized so they can stop Trump

Figures from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services show a 14.5% jump in naturalization applications in June-December of 2015 compared with the same six months in the previous year. Federal data does not break down those applications by race, but grass-roots organizations, like the Florida Immigrant Coalition, say their naturalization drives across their swing state are filled primarily by Latinos.

“They feel very unsafe with his words,” said Florida Immigrant Coalition spokesman Ivan Parra. “They want to be respected. For them, it is an emergency.”

What a delicious irony! People becoming legal, inspired to stop the very man who slandered them. Quick! How do you say “TAKE YOUR WALL AND SHOVE IT” in Spanish? I gotta get that printed on a t-shirt

A Non-Psychiatric Assessment of Donald Trump by a Prominent Psychiatrist

 

Screen shot 2016-02-23 at 10.17.05 AM

If someone is a major party nominee, they have a reasonable chance, even if the odds say they don’t, to be elected president.  John McCain could have beaten Barack Obama, and Sarah Palin would have been VP.  This could have happened.  Really.  Donald Trump is now the heavy favorite to be the Republican nominee.  While that could change if the unlikely scenario of the four others whittling themselves down to one Not Trump Guy Who He’ll Pound Into Hamburger happens fast, that’s a thin idea to pin your hopes on.  Politico headlines it this way on Wednesday:

GOP wakes up to Trump nightmare

Top party leaders fear it may be too late to stop him.

“I think it’s uphill, and Washington underestimates how uphill it is – and that’s because they’ve persistently underestimated Trump,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who sought the Republican nomination in 2012. If he wins Nevada, Gingrich added, “What is it that’s supposed to stop him?”

The obvious answer is that nothing will stop him.  It would be perfectly acceptable to be wrong, for once, in over-estimating Trump and having to backtrack instead of most of us who’ve watched this disgrace unfold who have predicted his downfall at each career-ending outrage for anyone else… under-estimating his appeal.

Back in September, Allen Frances, Professor Emeritus in Psychiatry at Duke and the guy who helped write the book on mental illness as chairman of the DSM-IV task force, wrote this for Huffington Post.  It’s worth revisiting….. concise and precise, it’s 100% accurate, and should be read by everyone, not just those of us who can’t believe we’re headed down this dark, dark road.

A Non-Psychiatric Assessment of Donald Trump

“A TV producer called a few weeks ago to ask whether I would go on air to discuss Donald Trump’s psychiatric diagnosis. I declined.

Because of embarrassing psychiatric pontificating that marred the 1964 presidential election, the American Psychiatric Association has an ethics policy that prohibits diagnosing-at-a-distance.

Liberal psychiatrists had scored cheap-shot points against the radically conservative Republican candidate, Barry Goldwater — publicizing their “diagnosis” that he was suffering from a mental disorder that made him too sick to be a safe custodian of the nuclear button. They had no right to use a professional credential to slur Goldwater by medicalizing what was essentially no more than a political disagreement.

Similarly, no one should pin psychiatric labels on Trump. This would be unethical and also almost certainly incorrect. To qualify for a diagnosis of mental disorder, a person must present with a characteristic set of symptoms and behaviors — and these must cause clinically significant distress or impairment. Trump is clearly a man singularly without distress and his behaviors, however outrageous and objectionable they may appear to others, consistently reap him fame, fortune and now political power. He has been generously rewarded for his Trumpism, not impaired by it.

Trump is a threat to the United States not because he is mad, but because he is bad. His breathtaking ignorance (whether real or foxy feigned) degrades what should be serious policy discussions into buffoonish circus performances. His blustery, bullying, bravado serves him well on TV, but as political leader would bring even more chaos to a world already spinning out of control. His tirades against vaccination make him a public health menace.

In his previous presidential flirtations, Trump fooled almost no one. He was widely regarded as an emperor with no clothes, a vainglorious clown. What is different this go around? Trump hasn’t changed a bit — it’s just that the Republican party has rapidly descended to his level. And the media are shameleesly feeding on the ratings generated by the freak show. Grown up governance has degenerated into childish reality TV.

Andy Warhol and Marshall McLuhan would not be surprised. Rome pandered with bread and circus. We have Trump.”

Trump Daily Dump 02/01/16

THE BIG STORY: After being the favorite for a while, Trump finished second, as Ted Cruz took the Iowa Caucus. In fact, Donald was closer to third place (Rubio) than he was to first. In his quick (I clocked it at about 2:43) concession speech, he was uncharacteristically gracious and professed his love for Iowa saying (jokingly, of course) that he might like to “come back and buy a farm”

I was expecting a spitfire, torch-the-earth, screw-you-people kind of speech from The Donald, but, no dice. A little disappointing. I don’t want Decaf Donald Trump

Rubio congratulated the Cruzer, but never mentioned Trump in his concession speech

The real Jesus guy beat the fake Jesus guy. And, speaking of fake Jesus guy, Trump can’t tell a Communion plate from a collection plate

Trump supporter Sarah Palin wasn’t very happy with Today hosts for calling her out on blaming her son’s PTSD on Obama

“You guys brought me to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids — and that was a promise,” Palin said. “But as things go in the world of media, you guys don’t always keep your promises, evidently.”

“I never blamed President Obama,” Palin continued. “What I have blamed President Obama in doing, though, is this level of disrespect for the United States military that is made manifest in gutting budgets and not trying to beef it up and let our military do the job that they are trained to do. And in specific issues that we’re talking about that are so hot today — specifically, let’s get there and let’s utterly destroy ISIS as we know our United States military can do, yet we have a commander-in-chief who seems to kind of want to kowtow and allow the enemy to be poking at us — and that’s unacceptable to most Americans, certainly to me.”

Got that? Good. Can you explain it to me?

She also threw some shade at Cruzer

Palin added that the mailers were “very offensive” and said they were part of an effort to “intimidate” voters.

“I think that’s very shameful,” Palin said

The former Alaska Governor then chatted with Extra

“Usually, I say polls are only good for strippers and cross-country skiers,” Palin joked to Extra, “but in this case, I do think the polls are accurate and are reflecting that the American people, the electorate… we’re looking for something different.”

YOU ROCK ‘N’ ROLLERS! AND HOLY ROLLERS! YOU BOOBY DANCERS! AND SECOND CHANCERS!

Bluebloods vs. Crips alert: Koch Brothers are ready to unleash the hounds on Trump

Some Koch donors are refreshed by Trump’s style and his willingness to reject political correctness and speak his mind. But his past support for tax increases, universal healthcare and other liberal issues means, they say, he cannot be trusted

I just hate it when billionaires fight. There are no winners

Former Trump staffer accuses campaign of sex discrimination

Davidson also alleged in her complaint that men were allowed to speak at rallies, whereas her requests to speak at them were ignored and said that when she and a female volunteer interacted with Trump at a rally last summer and asked him about appearing, he replied: “You guys could do a lot of damage,” a reference to their physical appearance

The guy who rails against Islam wants women to hide? Is that irony? Or has irony been bludgeoned to death by Donald J. Trump

1 in 4 federal employees would quit if The Donald is elected POTUS. Undoubtedly, another plus for Republican primary voters

Adele puts the kibosh on using her music at Trump rallies. I think I heard “Rolling in the Deep” at one of the Trump road shows (maybe Tulsa). Unless we’re talking about BS, Trump ain’t rollin’ in anything deep

Trump spent $10 M in fourth quarter

Trump supporters continue to jack with Cruz’s Wikipedia page

Kid Rock loves him some Trump. Mr. Rock’s track record on these things is not-so-good. Also, it wasn’t that long ago, that Bob Ritchie (KR’s real name, dawg) was “f—-g embarrassed” by the GOP

Trump offered legal support to anyone who would “knock the crap” out of potential tomato throwers

“So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them,” Trump said at his rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“I will pay for the legal fees. I promise,” he added. “They won’t be so much because the courts agree with us too.”

Ah, yes. In the famous Heinz v. Hunt’s case, the courts ruled that tomato-fueled rage was, in fact, justifiable self-defense

Only Felix Frankfurter dissented. He was always more of a French’s guy

In their endorsement of John Kasich, the New York Times addressed those of us who see the fraudulent, unprincipled, Sarah Palin-endorsed pitchman Donald Trump currying favor with his idiot followers who now permanently and singularly own the definition of “low-information voters.” Says the Times in their editorial endorsement: “At a meeting with The Times’s editorial writers, Mr. Trump talked about the art of applause lines. “You know,” he said of his events, “if it gets a little boring, if I see people starting to sort of, maybe thinking about leaving, I can sort of tell the audience, I just say, ‘We will build the wall!’ and they go nuts.” Wouldn’t it just be easier to have some chicks with big boobs come out and lift up their shirts, like they do at the infield at a NASCAR race? It’s all about the applause, right Donald? Jheesh….

Daily Trump Dump 01/23/16

THE BIG NEWS: The Republican frontrunner (I love typing that) said he could shoot someone and not lose any support

My people are so smart. And you know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. Okay? It’s like incredible

Does it bother you:

a) Because he said it?

b) Because he’s probably right?

I’m sure that he’s not the first potential world leader to say this. When the first guy said it, it went something like this

I forgen shooten die street, could gotten poofin and still der volken luff dee assen

Or something like that. But, seriously, which scenario would make Trump supporters call it quits on The Donald:

a) Video of him tying up Wayne LaPierre 50 Shades of Grey style

b) News leaking out that his next wife is over the age of 25

c) Video showing evidence that he tried to pulled a Bill Cosby on Barbara Walters

d) Discovery that he’s running a multi-state dog fighting ring

Who are we kidding here? All of those would make him go up 7 points in Iowa and 6 in New Hampshire

The Trump vs. Megyn Kelly feud flared up again

You see, in Trump’s world beautiful and smart is a conflict of interest

In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Kelly said Trump tried to curry favor with her before he announced his candidacy by sending her signed press clippings. “But I can’t be wooed,” she said. “I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him.”

Come on. OF COURSE, you were going to hate him. It’s ok. I know you’re saying that because of your kids, but they should know that some people are just 100% detestable. Kim Jong Un…Putin…Bieber

Trump continues to rack up endorsements from people who used to matter

In case you’re not up on your Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson is to Phil Robertson as Cruz is to Trump

I’m slightly concerned; Trump hasn’t used the word dopey on his twitter feed in days

Our Principles PAC released this anti-Trump ad

Which shows Trump taking many liberal stances, but, again, will this mean anything to supporters who wouldn’t be shaken about him shooting someone in Manhattan?

You know who would make a great Press Secretary in the Trump administration?

I kind of wish she was anti-Trump because the slams he could throw down against her would be epic. I could see 79 or 80 tweets on her Adam’s Apple alone

Here’s the ad

It’s hard to think of a more beloved figure in America than Barbara Bush. Maybe Nancy Reagan. And I would never put it past Trump to go after her, at some point

Sad that pathetic Nancy Reagan has to lie about me when she can’t even run a decent library #loser

HEY, SIR! YOU’RE UP ANOTHER TEN POINTS!

Trump Daily Dump 01/22/16

National Review goes HAM on The Donald with an editorial and a “symposium” on just how disastrous Trump would be as nominee. Before we dig into their points, let’s give props to NR‘s Mark Krikorian, who, correctly, points out

Dr. Frankensteins say beware of monsters. The editorial and several symposium contributors were clear that voters have good reason to be outraged at the serial betrayals by the Republican political class, even if Trump is the wrong vessel for that outrage. But a few of the contributors have helped perpetrate those betrayals – they’re part of the reason that Trump resonates with so many voters, and I’m loath to take their advice on dealing with the problem they helped create

Yep. You built that

The editorial is fairly dry, so let’s look at the all-star cast who throw so many stones. Glenn Beck, for example, that there was something good about Obama’s 2008 election

There was a silver lining, however. Rising out of the ashes of that electoral defeat came the Tea Party. The media struggled to explain it away as racist, xenophobic, and jingoistic. But the truth is, the Tea Party did not arise because Barack Obama defeated his opposition. It arose because there was no opposition

Sure. The Tea Part was super awesome. So much so, that people run from that branding these days. There isn’t even a Tea Party Caucus in the House anymore. They call themselves The Freedom Caucus because people came to view the Tea Party as nuts who simply howled at the moon. And these Trump supporters are just Tea Partiers even if they don’t acknowledge the label anymore

Mark Helprin is the most entertaining of the batch

And forget trying to determine whether he’s a conservative. Given that, at the suggestion of Bill Clinton, he has like a tapeworm invaded the schismatically weakened body of the Republican party, it’s a pointless question, because, like Allah in Islamic theology, he is whatever he pleases to be at the moment, the only principle being the triumph of his will

And on and on they go. Conservative heroes Erick Erickson, Dana Loesch, Michael Medved, and, my God, they even dug up Ed Meese. They’re is a certain irony about a group of people pointing out the tremendous ego of a guy, while simultaneously having massive egos large enough to contain the thought “if all of us band together, we can stop him”

Like the right-wing Transformers

Not surprisingly, Trump struck back against the NR on his twitter feed

He also throws some shade at a couple of symposium writers

Hey, you know who has LOTS of listeners?

The absolute BEST thing that could happen in the next few months is to have Rush and Trump turn on each other. Let’s face it: If a Rush Limbaugh show could become a thing, it would be the Donald Trump campaign. And both men are completely thin-skinned. Please let these two put each other on blast. I would laugh myself silly

Trump also launched a few Cruz missiles

Look, there’s only one way to settle this Cruz Canadian deal: Show him a DVD of hockey fights and if he can watch without coming to his feet and applauding, then I’ll accept his U.S. citizenship. Trump should send an urn to Cruz purporting to hold the ashes of Rocket Richard. Also, Trump could get Wayne Gretzky to record a message of support, saying Cruz is The Great One’s choice for PM POTUS

Of course, if Cruz does get elected, he could just mock everyone with a showing of Slap Shot in the White House movie theatre. He could really be a jerk about it and celebrate Thanksgiving in October. Cruz and Mrs. Cruz could take a relaxing vacation in Nova Scotia. Pin a Medal of Freedom on Anne Murray. The possibilities are endless

Woody Guthrie was one of the most important, influential musicians tis country has ever produced. Dylan was heavily influenced by him. So was Springsteen. And he hated Donald Trump’s dad

Guthrie’s two-year tenancy in one of Fred Trump’s buildings and his relationship with the real estate mogul of New York’s outer boroughs produced some of Guthrie’s most bitter writings, which I discovered on a recent trip to the Woody Guthrie Archives in Tulsa. These writings have never before been published; they should be, for they clearly pit America’s national balladeer against the racist foundations of the Trump real estate empire

“It’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD,” said Paul Rieckhoff, who heads Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). “PTSD is a very serious problem, a complicated mental health injury and I would be extremely reluctant to blame any one person in particular.”
