Nothing Wrong With Palins' Sense of Humor; It Just Isn't Funny

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Hotair's Allahpundit took up the "Family Guy" subject today, citing those who have asserted the Palins cannot take a joke. As you'll recall, the episode involved a girl with Down Syndrome who identified herself by saying, "My mother is the former governor of Alaska."

Along with everyone else who understands that enough is enough of this seemingly never-ending Palin harassment, I have denounced the show's tasteless use of Trig in their "comedy" act.

Days ago, Governor Palin issued a statement via Facebook, which included Bristol's sentiments.

Since then, she has simply continued doing what she does: be a voice of common sense conservatism at a time when sound judgment is seriously lacking in the current administration. Following the "Family Guy" episode, this week alone the governor has issued a detailed analysis of the failure of President Obama's stimulus bill one year later, highlighted Sean Duffy's "campaign to unseat the author of the stimulus," and brought more attention to the global warming hoax and the president's unsound economic commitments. The governor has not initiated any further comment about the "Family Guy" episode.

I, however, want to make the point that it's not the Palins' sense of humor that is to be called into question here, so let's not flip the script. It's the tasteless decisions of "Family Guy" that need examination.

Concerning a commitment to laughter, one look at Trig reveals he is full of joy. The Palins are obviously raising him to hold dear the qualities of humor and happiness. All children deserve as much.

What Trig doesn't deserve, however, is to be the butt of jokes on a show that admittedly specializes in being offensive, and neither Trig, nor anyone else, deserves to be the topic of a song designed to insult people with special needs, which was the case in that same "Family Guy" episode.

Here are the words to the song sung on Sunday's show:

You’ve got to look your best tonight, you tubby little parasite
‘Cause there’s a lovely lady and she’s waiting for you.
And though her pretty face may seem
A special person’s wettest dream
Before you get to see it there are things you must do.
We’ll try a tie, and boutonniere of yellow.
A rose that shows that you’re a classy fellow.
With a posh panache of Jefferson at Monticello,
Busting out a mile with style.
I know you just can’t wait to stare
At all that luscious orange hair
But boy before you touch a single curl
You must impress that ultra boomin’,
All-consumin’, poorly groomin’
Down syndrome girl.
On any normal day you reek
As if you’re on a farting streak,
Your fingers up your nose and you are dripping with drool.
But if you want a lady’s love,
You’re better off by smelling of
A gentleman’s cologne instead of sneakers and stool.
A squirt, a spurt of something just for Ellen
And you’ll see that she will find you so compellin’.
And she does because the only smell that she’ll be smellin’
Won’t be comin’ from your bum.
You want to take that little whore
And spin her on the dancing floor
But boy, before you do a single twirl –
You must impress that effervescing,
Self-possessing, no-BS-ing
Down syndrome girl.
Her eyes are emerald portals to a secret land of love
And her smile is like the sweetest summer flower.
Her kiss is so inviting, and her hugs are so delighting.
And what makes them really nice is that they’ve got a little spice
Because they’re tighter than a vice and they go on for an hour.
My boy, between the two of us we’ll get you on that shorty bus.
And then you’re going to take it for a whirl.
Now go impress that super-thrilling,
Wish-fulfilling, Yoo-Hoo-spilling,
Ultra-swinging, boner-bringing,
Daily singing, ding-a-linging
Stupefying, fortifying,
Stimulating, titillating,
Kitty-cat impersonating,
Mega-rocking, pillow talking,
Just a little crooked walking,
Poorly pouting, boobies sprouting,
For some reason always shouting,
Fascinating, captivating,
Happiness and joy creating
Down syndrome girl
(H/T C4P)

No, the Palins don't have a problem with humor; they are indeed raising Trig to laugh and be happy. And I like a good joke as much as the next person myself. I just don't find the "Family Guy" episode particularly funny or complimentary.

No Guts? No Glory!

I am a lifelong conservative Republican who believes in Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment that thou shalt not speak ill of other Republicans. There are some right now who need to abide by the same commandment amongst their own unless they want to hand the liberals a victory when the movement fractures because some bozos are running off at the mouth. Take Grover North and David Keene for example. Or look to George Will and Dorothy Rabinowitz for the smell you want to be able to identify when recognizing old school elitists. Leave the Palin bashing to the left and let's get on with taking back our country.

I don't want to have my belief in the Tea Party or conservative movements ruined because some cry babies are pissed that Sarah Palin didn't show up at their event, endorse their candidate or mention their guy's name on her Facebook page. I'm a strong believer that the TEA Party and conservative movements need to infiltrate and take over the Republican party. I'm far from an insider. But there are some folks who may be among us who are making me nervous about that right about now.

Quite frankly, I don't want to go into battle with a bunch of mealy mouthed flip floppers who throw a tantrum everytime Palin does something they don't like. I'm far from a RINO lover, but I do know one thing about winning elections and that is if the tent is big, you win. I also know that winning requires building coalitions. Sometimes that means accepting people you normally may not always agree with. For me, the only enemies are true liberals, progressives and statists. I'll work with anyone to stop them as long as they work with me.

I keep my mouth zipped about the other candidates for the 2012 GOP presidential race. I'm capable of liking and respecting them even if Sarah's my first pick. When we (and I mean the movement) win in 2012, everyone should get into the new administration as far as I'm concerned whether it's top dog, cabinet level or an advisory position. But I'm beginning to re-think that now as I see folks identifying themselves as some who may just have to ride it out the next administration in the cheap seats if Palin gets the nod. I'll respect and support whoever the nominee is, but I'm not going to fight a war with traitors amongst the ranks or get behind anyone who wouldn't afford Sarah Palin the same respect.

The primaries will determine who the Republican candidate will be, not an op ed writer, a pundit or some jerk shooting off his mouth at the CPAC convention. The real convention is in 2012. I know Palin is not the only candidate that has a shot at winning. But those who want to undermine her for the sake of getting their own way at the expense of the greater movement need to understand that I and many other Palin supporters are not going to rally behind anyone who sticks a knife in our back. Let's be prepared to be united either way instead of being pissed off at each other. Otherwise, be prepared for four more years of Obama and file all the hard work everyone has been doing in the "wasted our time" file.

The Tea Party and conservative movements have a great future. But some in the movement show its rougher edges along with their own rigidity. Being judgmental and and too demanding of those who want to help the cause won't get us into the White House. Lest we turn into an angry mob for real and give the liberals what they want, we need to be more careful of what we say and what we do. I'm not saying don't express an opinion or resolve differences by consensus, but when full blown Palin Derangement Syndrome starts rearing its ugly head in a movement I'm working hard for, it makes me question whether or not I should be chasing girls instead of writing blog posts. Why waste my time with "faux" allies?

I know we already have a Reagan. Many others either don't want to accept that or they really genuinely feel that she's not it. That's fine. I'm not asking everyone to come here today and pledge a blood oath to Sarah Palin. If I had to eyeball it, there is a solid 30% of the base who agrees with me on her merits. It may not yet  be enough to win a general election alone, but the potential is there and we have two years to build it. Detractors be wary if they think the movement can win it with just the other 70% either. Just give Sarah a chance instead of chasing her and her supporters away. Look at how far she's come since she was the VP nominee (and she was huge then!).

At some point, I would hope the uncertains see the light and join forces in creating the greatest monster the Democrats have ever fought since Reagan. If not, than they still need to figure out what to do with all that lightning in a bottle she has. No offense to those who bad mouth Sarah or support any of the other candidates, but if you got anybody that can motivate people more than she can, show them to me. But if you want Palin out of the movement, fess up now so I don't waste any more of my time or yours.

I don't care who you want to be nominated in 2012. I'm only going to have your back until I find out you don't have mine.

And if some of you wimps can't stomach the Palin bashing because you believe everything you read in the mainstream media or you go to pieces thinking she can't win an election everytime you read a hit piece on her, this fight to take back the shining city on a hill is not for you. How can we fight the liberals who will smear anyone who gets the nomination in 2012 if we're not willing to stand up for Sarah Palin now?!

Read my page Fight for the Right and understand not only the tactics, but realize how high the stakes are. You have to stomach John McCain and I have to stomach Rand Paul. Now stop whining and criticizing. We have a shining city on a hill to take.

Sarah Palin Takes On The Global Warming Hoax And Obama’s Losing Economic Strategy

Not mincing words, Sarah Palin came out both barrels blazing this morning when she took on the global warming hoaxers and Obama with full force:

"Global Warming" – More Like a Snow Job

Today at 12:31am

Over the last few months, and even again today, very unsettling revelations have come to light about the "settled science" of man-made global warming. With all of these shoes dropping you’d think every member of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would be barefoot by now.

One thing after another keeps popping up to further discredit the theory of man-made global warming. The IPCC’s supposedly definitive report proving the theory is riddled with serious errors. The organization has been publicly chastised by everyone from its former chair to the heads of the UK’s biggest funder of climate research and Greenpeace UK. One of the world’s top climate change scientists, Prof. Phil Jones, has conceded that there’s been no significant warming since 1995; that the medieval period may have been warmer than today; and that he’s had trouble even keeping track of raw data crucial to the global warming theory. Yet President Obama still seeks to create a federal office for global warming, and they’re still talking about mandating their cap-and-tax plan that's based on discredited data.

The Obama administration’s environmental extremism also shows up in its aversion to oil and gas development. A true all-of-the-above approach to energy would mean allowing oil and gas explorers to drill here and drill now because America has the proven reserves needed to meet our energy challenges. A new industry study reveals that the federal government's current restrictions on oil and gas drilling in Alaska and off the U.S. coastline will cost us $2.36 trillion through 2029. Think of the millions of U.S. jobs we could create, and how much more secure America would be, if we had a true free market approach to energy independence that allowed us to finally drill!

And though I applaud the President’s newly declared interest in nuclear power, it should be noted that he’s merely following through on loan guarantees authorized during the prior administration. What’s more, while the White House now touts the building of new nuclear power plants, its budget inexplicably calls for cutting funding to the proposed nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. A real nuclear energy plan requires a strategy for dealing with nuclear waste storage and recycling.

The man-made global warming hysteria isn’t based on sound science, and the Obama administration’s energy policy isn’t based on sound economics. If the climategate revelations teach us anything, it’s that we need to cool down the rhetoric and fire up our common sense.

- Sarah Palin

This folks, is why I support Sarah Palin. The woman has cojones! Big brass ones!

Most of the pretenders to the 2012 GOP presidential contest would never take on the global warming hoaxers, the flat earthers. Many of them actually believe global warming is real, which should disqualify them from ever holding any office. The rest are just political cowards because they know to question the global warming hoaxers is to face ridicule.

Sarah Palin isn’t afraid of a little mud slinging and lies by the left. Hell, I think she thrives on it. Makes her mad, keeps her focused and determined!

Energy independence and national security run hand and hand. Energy is the lifeblood of our economy. It is criminal that we don’t use our own natural resources.

Obama and his radical government is dead set on using his office to destroy America through some modified Cloward-Piven strategy and then remake it into his idea of a communist utopia.

The man must be stopped and common sense must prevail.

Sarah Palin has the right plan for national security, energy independence, and economic prosperity. It’s time we stop screwing around and start putting her plans into action!

VRWC Lincoln Day Dinner

Every year, Women's Repulican Clubs around the United States organize Lincoln Day Dinners. These dinners are the primary annual celebration and fundraising event of many state and county organizations of the Republican Party in the United States. Because our club, the Valley Republican Women's Club, was chartered less than a year ago, we weren't in a position to organize a dinner last year, but this year we decided to jump in the fray and put one on. And what an event it was! From the venue, to the attendees, to our keynote speaker Alaska Governor Sean Parnell, everything just seemed to fall into place. We had many dignitaries and prominent individuals in the room, as well as some great patriots. Now, I was a nervous wreck because I wanted so much for this event to be perfect. I've spoken to groups of 2,000 or 3,000 but was more nervous about this event than any other I've been a part of. I have to say, we did a great job!

We held the event at Settler's Bay Lodge. I cannot say enough good things about the venue and the people who run it. I was a caterer when I was younger, and also managed a restaurant, and I know professional when I see it. These guys are top notch. If you ever have a chance to come to Wasilla, I highly recommend their restaurant - beautiful views and excellent food. Here is the room, all decked out.

The view from the room was gorgeous

Julie is our Vice President this year and she did a wonderful job organizing our silent auction items before the event and collecting funds afterward. Julie and other board members were on hand to keep everything running smoothly.

Our 2009 President Gayle Ann and her husband Daniel looked great

As the sun set, everyone filed into the room and the evening would begin soon - look at that view!

Sarah Palin's mom, Sally Heath, and club secretary Ivy arrived and took their seats

Governor Sean Parnell took his seat and Sarah Palin's father, Chuck Heath, came over to chat and catch up

The show is on and it's my turn to welcome everyone and get things started

Julie read a message from US Senator Lisa Murkowski who was not able to attend (she is busy in Washington DC dealing with the greenies)

Alaska State Representative for District 14 Wes Keller gave the invocation

Next, the Mayor for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, our own Talis Colberg, gave a whitty introduction of the governor

Finally, we heard a wonderful message from Governor Sean Parnell. Check out the videos below to see clips of his message

We were honored to have the governor as our keynote speaker and the club gave him a gift

Our board with the Governor - myself, Julie, the Governor, Ivy, and Carol.

I was honored to have my photo with the governor

The governor had to leave for another event and after a short break, Alaska Senator Linda Menard gave a legislative update

We then had a little fun. We announced the winners of the silent auction items, then had a live auction with Don Benson as the auctioneer and I helped him point out bidders. We auctioned a glacier landing and flight seeing tour through

Here are some of the videos of the governor's speech

On Opportunity

On Republican Principles

On Healthcare Reform

I hope you all have had a feel for what the evening was like. It was a wonderful event and I'm glad I've had the opportunity to share it with you!
