It’s too bad the Men of the Tea Party don’t have the class and decency that John McCain does.
Have you noticed how Tim Pawlenty is having a melt-down? There is talk about Newt sandbagging his own campaign, but T-Paw is hurting himself, and getting a pass at it. The man is showing what a thin-skinned jerk he is.
Something strange is going on here. Then again it may simply be an indication that last week’s New York Magazine piece on Roger Ailes might be true after all. He’s mad at Sarah Palin. Ergo, Palin must be destroyed.
What you need to know is that the person who did the most complaining at Rolling Thunder, Ted Shpak is a big Democrat. Very few people have bothered mentioning this. Of course Allen West had to pander to the Dem instead of sticking up for someone who is responsible for him getting where he is today.
The Pink Flamingo seems to remember that Sarah Palin did a tremendous amount to help Allen West. Forget that. Once again he proves that men of the tea party are nothing but he man woman using jerks.
“…Right here, the talk is about Memorial Day, the talk is about like I said those people who have given that ultimate sacrifice,” West said.
“After you served 22 years in the United States Army, what brings me out today is there are people here that I served with, there are people here who served with my older brother in Vietnam,” West, who rented a bike because getting his own up from Florida was too much trouble, told TPM. “And this is the right thing, for us to always remember those who had given their lives in the ultimate sacrifice and to never forget our POWs and MIAs.”…”
Palin was far more gracious than West, to had to publicize the fact that he was there.
‘…“I’m thankful Rolling Thunder keeps the mission of honoring our vets alive! For in doing so, they remind us what is good and free and worthy in America,” she wrote. “So roll on, Rolling Thunder! Like Martin Luther King, Jr. said about the great struggle for civil rights, ‘we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream…'”
Palin said she met with Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a Tea Party-backed freshman lawmaker who was also in attendance at the rally. West is a retired Army officer, having served in the Iraq War….”
The worst thing, oh the horror – she was riding a Hog with a Bush sticker on it!
“…It also overwhelmed Rolling Thunder’s security capabilities and strained organizers’ patience as photographers, journalists and admirers swarmed the former Alaska governor after she hopped off the back of a black bike in the parking lot of the Pentagon (the AP reported her bike a likeness of President George W. Bush on the windshield with the words “Miss Me?” written on it). Attendees worried the “paparazzi” would knock over their expensive bikes and shouted at photographers and journalists scrambling to ask Palin a question….”
To put things into perspective, this is called “chaotic”. Looks to me like some of the organizers are jerks. It also looked like she was very well received, contrary to the liberals and Allen West being such a jerk.
Didn’t Palin go the distance helping West? Now, please explain why it was acceptable for him to pander to the press, but wrong for her? What about her son who served in Iraq?
“...Rep. Allen West (R-FL) was also in attendance at the rally, and seemed to agree with Shpak’s “distraction” analysis.
“I don’t think any talk about Palin coming here is right. Here, the talk is about Memorial Day, the talk is about, like I said, those people who have given that ultimate sacrifice,” West told Talking Points Memo. “After you served 22 years in the United States Army, what brings me out today is there are people here that I served with, there are people here who served with my older brother in Vietnam.”…”
The far right, far left, and tea party FOX press is having a difficult time trying to figure out what Sarah Palin is going to do.
Good for her!
It is quite obvious there is this template that one must follow in all things political, FOX, MSM, and POTUS Wannabe. It is about time someone thumbs their nose at them and does it her way.
Do you really think a man would have the courage to do this?
It doesn’t matter if she does or does not run. What matters is that Sarah Palin knows how to drive just about everyone crazy. Maybe that’s her whole plan. She is exposing numerous far right tea party stalwarts as pure jerks.
Good for her!
