Late Night: Palin–Glenn Beck’s Sleazy Obsession is Liquor Salesmen’s Dream Date

Is it part of God’s plan that there are just so many good Sarah Palin stories tonight? Sarah, I just can’t quit you.You are a long cold drink on a hot day.

And speaking of drinking, it’s been announced that Palin will be the official keynote speaker at the Wine and Liquor Wholesalers of America convention in Las Vegas in early April. The convention features a liquor tasting, which leads in my bedazzled brain to the Name the Palin Cocktail game, and of course the official Sarah Palin drinking game.

Now what kind of drinking game might be best? We need a title for the game, scoring, rules, penalties, judges. She mentions “conservative” take a shot? “Good clean” whether Alaska protein or energy is worth two?

For some guidelines to the mixology concept and the drinking game, which could begin with her appearance tonight on O’Reilly (see above)  or tomorrow on Beck, here’s some stuff  from Game Change reported by the Daily Mail:

Palin’s behaviour was so erratic that at one point senior figures in the McCain campaign began to seriously discuss the possibility that she was mentally unstable..

She wasn’t eating (a few small bites of steak a day, no more). She wasn’t drinking (maybe half a can of Diet Doctor Pepper, no water, ever). She wasn’t sleeping (not much more than a couple of hours a night, max)…while being drilled for upcoming interviews, ‘she would routinely shut down – chin on her chest, arms folded, eyes cast to the floor, speechless and motionless, lost in what those around her described as a kind of catatonic stupor’.

The morning of her ill-fated CBS interview with Katie Couric, Ms Palin – ‘her eyes glassy and dead’ – was unresponsive to attempts to prep her as she was being made up.

‘As they were about to set off to meet Couric, Palin announced “I hate this makeup” -smearing it off her face, messing up her hair, complaining she looked fat,’ the book says

Speaking of cocktail, check out sleazy and creepy Glenn Beck leering about their weird attraction to each other. That’s enough to make me mix a nice absinthe and vermouth.

Hypocrisy – thy name is conservatism.

If conservatives practiced what they preached they:

wouldn’t drink or promote the use of alcohol.

wouldn’t use drugs and buy hookers

wouldn’t stake out bathrooms for sex

wouldn’t practice birth control – ergo they would have six or twelve kids instead of two or none.

Corrupted them good, I did. How’s life on the Big Island? Not so cold, but icy here in the northern Rockies. Slipped on the ice today heading home after class and mildly concussed myself, not to mention bleeding all over the place. No major damage, but no fun either.

How weird…Stamford Paylin, of whatever her name is, and her ex Wrangler, or whatever his name is, I’m guessing were hosting some Wine and Liquor Wholesalers’s products the night Sayrah’s grandbaby (in theory) was conceived. Perhaps Sayrah is just trying to give her thanks…being a true Christian…and Republican….and American, that Sayrah is….right?

She wasn’t eating (a few small bites of steak a day, no more). She wasn’t drinking (maybe half a can of Diet Doctor Pepper, no water, ever). She wasn’t sleeping (not much more than a couple of hours a night, max)…while being drilled for upcoming interviews, ’she would routinely shut down – chin on her chest, arms folded, eyes cast to the floor, speechless and motionless, lost in what those around her described as a kind of catatonic stupor’.

That is the exact description of a meth-head.

For all that couldn’t clicky the 40 second clip, she butchers the word ‘appreciate’, mouths her part as best as possible, and it looks forced and unbelievable.

Her facial gestures and attempts with body language to echo BillyO and his points are there, but her mouth betrays her . . . this was taped, it was likely rehearsed, and she had a teleprompter, and she STILL could NOT pull it off . . .

She’s gonna really, really, embarass even Billy O, and Fox Nudes . . . . .

Atavan is also in the benzodiazepine class but was not introduced until 1977. Valium hit the market in 1963. Mother’s Little Helper was released in 1966.


georgewalton | Tuesday January 12, 2010 09:00 pm 74

Did God create Sarah Palin before or after Glenn Beck created God?

And few think through the philosophical implications of suggesting something happens because it is a part of God’s plan.

After all, if God is omniscient, He is all-knowing. And if God knows everything He knows everything we will ever do. And if God knows everything we will ever do then human autonomy itslef is an illusion.

So, Ms. Palin, how do you respond to that?

I’ve palled around with lots of drug users. Some people exhibit symptoms such as those you describe, others don’t.

Some people are just jerks without any chemical dependency whatsoever. No reason to assume Palin is a user, doing that might give addicts a bad name…

Believe I’ll head out, splendid evening to all.


RonD | Tuesday January 12, 2010 09:09 pm 86

Sarah Palin drinking game triggers:

“….real America…”: drink a shot.
“Joe Sixpack”: a shot.
“tax cuts”: make someone else drink a shot.
reference to illegal immigration: everybody drinks a shot.
Statement or insinuation that Obama is not a citizen: shot with beer chaser
Veiled reference to armed insurrection, like that “tree of liberty must be watered with…”, etc.: double shot.

My wife is one of the smartest people I know, I mentioned this thread to her, showed her the clip above.

She comes out with, “Oxycontin!”

And now, after I share the info others have posted from McCain’s Campaign, and some other comments, my wife says, “Meth, prescribed drugs, don’t matter. She wasn’t eating, drinking? Drugs? She didn’t wanna look fat on camera.”

And there it is, MY posit.

Palin all fucked up on something druggish, and going all anorexic, because she didn’t wanna look fat on camera . . .

That’s my call, I’m makin it.

I’ll add, Palin has a phobia and uses drugs and ‘dieting’ before any serious public appearance, and that renders her even stupider than she was coming in, hence all the prep work fails.

She is SO gonna fuck up Fox . . . I can’t wait for this . . . *G*

Meth is everywhere as was coke three or so decades ago.

In the early 70′s dealers couldn’t GIVE coke away . . . .

N then, it hit.

N then, Freeway Ricky introduced crack, and it and meth became fashionable, somewhere in the late 70′s or early 80′s?

I’ll just say, they are insidious, all of them. I’ve seen the damage done to friends.

Horribly addictive . . . and social, too, meth, coke, crack . . . still, to this day.

Again, the lyric (a) describes the appearance and effect, clearly in reference to an anti-anxiety med.

Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she’s not really ill
There’s a little yellow pill

Later:

They’re so hard to satisfy, You can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

Also, as I mentioned, Valium was released in 1963, Mother’s Little Helper in 1966. I think it was available in the UK, doesn’t matter, the Stones were spending considerable time in the U.S. before then.

You can take my word for it or not, I do not care.

Hoss, I had NO idea Valium was available in ’63!!!!!

I thought it was an 80′s drug!!!

Ergo, my questions . . . NEVER knew it was a released that early, and made it’s way into the rock scene, as all prescrips do . . .

We kewl, chirps to you and Bob . . . not trying to hassle ya . . . .

I joked to my wife a year ago that Palin’d end up working on Fox.

New prediction: She will move to New York, dump The Dude, hook up with Glen Beck,(picture this) they will mate, and they will be America’s favorite couple, and the get of their loins will be the Antichrist.

Knew about the 18, but did NOT know about the MOJO hit!

That’s pretty huge . . . . funny, ties back into what I was saying about journalism, broadcasting and what FDL was saying about it all, and why I thought YOUR effort was so stellar in Book Salon.

She’s not yet muzzled, just getting published!

Tell me how kewl that has to be for an 18 year old among her elders.

Hell, her peers have no clue . . . . she’s blowing away adults with her work.

*G*

A year ago everyone was worried about her getting into politics and/or the MSM.

She failed the politics, she failed the Governorship, she failed a lot of things.

The more she tries, the more she fails . . .

Her Fox fuckups to come are gonna grind her into the history bin of those who couldn’t cut it.

They won’t be able to hide her deficiencies . . . . they wont’ be able to cover up her fuckups.

It will be the end of her. Tragically, and as Mz. Derrick sez, it will be good ratings as she self destructs on Prime Time Cable TV.

But thanks for your vision.

I’m not sure what the MOJO article is, but Betsy’s Neice posted this recently.

And It’s So Professional, It’s Scary Coming From An 18 Year Old.

Yep, it’s lowered down to where Anna’s boobs hung . . . it surely has.

And yet, it’s central and part and parcel of our nations dialogue regarding issues and governance.

How fucked up is that, huh . . . leisigh.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments . . .


Larue | Tuesday January 12, 2010 10:19 pm 146

Whoops, I shoulda thanked Mz. Derrick for another sterling topic and issue to discuss.

She got it goin on . . . as does FDL.


rlramirez | Wednesday January 13, 2010 08:37 am 147

Just like some folks on conservative sites/blogs, you folks (FDL) loose credibility every time you take a clip or a statement, like the one of Glen Beck, and pretend it should be taken literally. Come on, watch the show and notice how much sarcasm he uses. I was watching Chris Mathews in a tirade last night over how Republicans are being coached by the likes of Mary Matlin to re-spin history. Yeah, like no Democrats ever did that using the talents of James Carville. Should I post a You-Tube of that rant and title it “Another Chris Mathews’ Melt-down”. I think not.

Don’t be a pawn in these political-tainment games.

We should have a runway walk between Palin and Prejean to decide the winner!
