Open Thread: "Going Rogue" hits youtube! - Satire alert!

The thrilla from Wasilla inspires the Youtubbies - and a politician from Alaska joins the fun!

Can we please have a series of these videos, maybe including other bloggers, too! Tony Hopfinger, I beg you! :-)

"Would you like a copy of Sarah Palin's new book?"

"No, thank you!"

I loved all three videos, and Andrew Halcro is HOT! Is he single? ; )

I would love to see Peter Coffin make a video of the various versions of the "Wild Ride". His leaking amniotic fluids would be as believable as Sarah leaking amniotic fluids.

Thanks, Patrick, for sharing those great clips! LOL

I posted this on the last thread, but I wanted to re-post so folks won't miss--

If you have not seen Rachel Maddow's interview with Frank Schaeffer(sp), Gryphen has the video clip.

It is a MUST SEE! He posted three clips, it is the third one down under "Not to be missed Sarah Palin segments on Countdown and The Rachel Maddow Show."

Michelle Bachman has said that she's also waiting for God's call about 2012, so it will be interesting if Sarah Palin and Michelle both get the go ahead. What a circus!

BuffaloGal said...

So how long before the Eisenstadt video goes viral and is reported by some news source or another? I'll die laughing if someone out there quotes " hung like a walrus".

I think everyone that got slammed in Palin's book should do a video. Calling Ashley Judd! C'mon Down!

Letterman, too!

OMG---we're not the only ones who get it! Now if only we can get these guys to do more videos based on additional 'palingates' !!!

How can we help? I'm going to look into this.

There's media interest in $P's lies now. I recommend multiple submissions, like the whole story on one of the gates, but also submissions with just a snippet of the evidence for each gate. A good one is the discrepancy between the wild ride story she told a year ago and the one she told in the book. Another is the discrepancy between Sarah's labor experience and the experience of a mere mortal.

Someone could make a lot of money videoing the people reading the excerpts that Sarah has written about them.

The only propblem is that Chris Goff would surely have something to say about it!

Patrick, tell us you are writing a blockbuster post soon.

I want to see you take the queen down.

I hope the bookstores have enough sense to keep the free riders out. The stores should insist that only those who bought the book in the store (receipt required) get to line up for the autograph. That will frustrate a lot of her supporters.

Halcrow could give Shatner a run for his money!

"... Todd's cousin's wedding"

A kind 3rd grade teacher would say "not relevant" honey. A 12th grade teacher would say "I can't believe you think this is relevant". A college teacher would say "WTF".

But, bless him, Halcro did just the perfect thing ... utube immortality.

(bonus points for the butler)

Halcro's video is the best! What a great sense of humor (and great acting, too!). I don't think Eisenstadt did himself any favors with his video, though. I know that SP unhinges the best of us, but a rebuttal like Halcro's (i.e., calm - see his blog as well) is a lot more effective than a rant like that. Not to mention, he sounds like he's got quite the ego. No wonder he and Sarah got along so well!

Palin releases a "book" and hilarity ensues.

Libel suits are next?

Maybe someone should google "martin eisenstadt hoax."

17:53, I knew that name sounded familiar!

WOW, Sarah Palin is so dumb she didn't even know it was part of a hoax and she mentioned it in her book????

Bring it, Andrew!!

Andrew, that was inspired! Thank you!

Anon 16:56, that's how the Dallas site is doing it -- You have to buy a ticket for $29.95, which is what they're charging for the book (SNORF), and that gets you in and gets you a book. No piddly little $4.95 books allowed!

I love that Andrew Sullivan wrote this line today:

"There is a possibility here of such a huge scandal that we would be crazy not to take our time either to debunk it or move it forward for further examination."

Martin said at 2:00: A book needs an INDEX to get into the Library of Congress .. is this TRUE? Can this be why Sarah's book has NO INDEX?? HC doesn't want it in there??

HC is treating her book as if it was just a pamphlet, not a serious book?

......... is this video real? I can't decide!

Have you seen this?

The Dish has went silent to investigate the crazy lady?!?!?!!!!

18 Nov 2009 11:44 am

To Our Readers
This is only the second time in its nearly ten-year history that the Dish has gone silent. The reason now is the same as the reason then. When dealing with a delusional fantasist like Sarah Palin, it takes time to absorb and make sense of the various competing narratives that she tells about her life. There are so many fabrications and delusions in the book, mixed in with facts, that just making sense of it - and comparing it with objective reality as we know it, and the subjective reality she has previously provided - is a bewildering task. She is a deeply disturbed person which makes this work of fiction and fact all the more challenging to read. And the fact that she is now the leader of the Republican party and a potential presidential candidate, makes this process of deconstruction an important civil responsibility. We take this seriously as we always have. We want to be fair to her, and to her family, and to the innocent people she has brought into the spotlight. And we are not reporters. We are merely analysts trying to make sense of evidence already in the public domain, evidence that points in all sorts of directions, only one of which can be true.

Since the Dish has tried to be rigorous and careful in analyzing Palin's unhinged grip on reality from the very beginning - specifically her fantastic story of her fifth pregnancy - we feel it's vital that we grapple with this new data as fairly and as rigorously as possible. That takes time to get right. And it is so complicated we simply cannot focus on anything else.

There are only three of us.

And we have had the book for less than a day. We feel we owe it to you to get it right - or as right as we can - until we post or publish anything. As readers know, we also differ on some key issues and intend to air them and thrash this out until we are confident that whatever we publish is as fair as possible.

At some point, we will also go back and make sure we have not missed all the evidence of the other lies that Palin is now peddling. We won't miss anything. But we ask for your patience.

There is a possibility here of such a huge scandal that we would be crazy not to take our time either to debunk it or move it forward for further examination.

We have only one commitment: to get this right. Please bear with us as we do the best we can.

Since Sullivan is about 10 times smarter than Sarah Palin, and since his two assistants are no dummies either, I'd be very afraid if I were Sarah Palin right about now.

Plus, Sullivan is on a mission now. Passion + intelligence = results!

The assumption regarding Trig’s parentage is that Bristol is the mom, if that may not be the case.....then what happened to Bristol’s first pregnancy?

What did Sarah do to “have” Trig? and why?

Please do not miss the excellent and extremely funny review of "Going Rogue" in the Wall Street Journal!


Sarah Palin is toast.

Patrick said...

Wall Street Journal (see my link above):

"This is the memoir as prolonged, keening wail, larded with petty vindictiveness. With an impressive attention to detail, Ms. Palin settles every score, answers every criticism; locates a scapegoat for every foul-up, and fastens an insult on every critic, down to the last obscure Palin-doubter back in Alaska."
