Impressed By Sarah Palin’s Jewish Star Necklace?

By Debbie Schlussel

Apparently, some people think I’m a monkey or Pavlov’s dog or something.  Even more apparent, a number of those people fit that definition, themselves.  Last week, many people–both gentile and Jew, but all of them fans of Sarah Palin–sent me a photo of yet another cheap, patronizing Palin publicity stunt.  The half-governor, reality show star, and Kris Kardashian Jenner of the Right, wore a Jewish Star/Star of David necklace, something she’s done before a few times.

All of the people sending this out and posting it all over Facebook and Twitter think this means something.  They are fools.  I really couldn’t care less what she wears around her neck.  I can’t speak for all American Jews, but I, myself, am not so simple that when someone gratuitously puts on some Jewish accessory, I gush and drool.  It’s simply irrelevant.  I care about what’s best for America (which includes support for Israel), not what accessories people wear, unless they are wearing crescent charms to show support for Islam. Then, I’ll have something to say.

And this isn’t for the Jews–who mostly don’t and wouldn’t support her. It’s designed to appeal to conservatives Christians/Evangelicals. Glad Sarah Palin is “pro-Israel” (though her support is questionable, given that she promoted, funded, and helped elect anti-Israel Rand Paul, and given that she is tight with the anti-Israel, pro-Hezbollah Jane Hershey Abraham of Susan B. Anthony List, from whom she took instructions on whom to endorse in the 2010 elections). But so were Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama (his was the most obviously fake, but he gave the lip service) . . . until they got elected. With Palin, it simply doesn’t make up for so many other shortcomings that are bad for America. And I’m not gonna support someone–especially for President–just because she’s wearing a Jewish Star.  If I did, then that means I’d have to be impressed with and support all of these people for President and fall for there sleazy symbolism designed to sucker me or my fellow co-religionists in, like when Bill Clinton promised that the White House would have its first kosher kitchen, if he was elected.  That was ridiculous, since the dude ain’t a Jew and doesn’t keep kosher, and there’s absolutely no reason we need a kosher kitchen in the White House.  It was stupid.  But it was designed to get dumb Jewish people suckered into the same kind of symbolism as Sarah Palin is engaging in.  Glad they like to symbolize they are “down with the struggle.”  But that’s all it is–symbolism.  Supporting Clinton or Sarah Palin for President merely because they make obvious but meaningless panders to Judaism would require that I also support the following people for President:

*  Hey, look what she’s wearing around her neck–same as Palin.  And, yet, unlike Palin, she’s not pimping out and glamorizing her kid’s single motherhood. . .

*  All of these people wore yarmulkes, and I didn’t want any of ‘em to be Prez.  Didn’t turn out well for Israel and the Jews under any of these guys that ultimately got elected, either. . .

*  She even made her adopted, poor, hungry, Black kid from Africa wear a yarmulke and a red thread kabbalah bracelet–poor kid.  Nope, wouldn’t want her to be Prez, either. . .

* This guy didn’t turn out well, either, for America, Israel, or the Jews. . .

If you’re preoccupied by base, cheap symbolism, you will NEVER get anything–or anyone–of substance.

The year I graduated from high school, for the “words to remember me by” segment of the yearbook I wrote the following: “It is important to think about other people for who they are, and not what they appear to be.” This dictum can be seen in all different ways – and evidently based upon the maroons fawning over Palin’s Star of David accessory – er, bling – er, whatever, it seems they only go by what appears to be.

Oh, and as to that last picture, I can only think of the following words from one of his trusted aides – “F*** the Jews, they didn’t vote for us anyway.”

HW was a horse’s ass. Lousy on foreign and domestic policy, he spent a great deal of time fellating Islamists worse than Lewinsky did Clinton.

Some mornings, people just wake up feeling Jewish for whatever reason.

Irving on June 9, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Thanks for this post. I hafta admit that I wondered what you would think about the Star Of David on Palin…and after reading your post, I feel like I SHOULD have been able to know it BEFORE your post. Great post on (empty)symbolism vs actions and as always very well thought out and on point.

On Palin, I am not a hater or Palinista. I am VERY chagrined that so-called Conservatives refuse to call her on her flaws (Bristol…who is a nut who I’d love to see GO AWAY already! And how she can’t be super-mom and be the family breadwinner etc.) and just think everything she does is super-duper. On the flipside, Liberals (as they are wont to do) go after her with insane and mostly unfounded lies.

But make NO MISTAKE…THIS is where we get the good-guts on the good, the bad and the ugly. THIS is where the truth is told…and I don’t dismiss DS’ dislike of Palin AT ALL. In fact, I watch her closely because in the end, DS will know the truth…just as she is on to all the other charlatans she has the guts to expose (like that arrogant FRAUD Andrew Breitbart…who will prolly have his own disgracefull fall from grace…and that fraud DESERVES IT!!!!)

Skunky on June 9, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Miss Schlussel, Et Alii:

I don’t remember if I ever wore a yarmulke, or not.

But, when I arrived in Israel, one of the first things I bought was one of those blue and white souvenir hats they sell to tourists.

When my Jewish guided tour (on which I was the ONLY Christian!) went to the marketplace in Beersheba, I bought one of those Arab burnooses, along with an Arab dagger.

And I owe the whole experience to having been inspired by hearing the theme song from the Hollywood movie, “EXODUS”, on the radio when I was a boy in El Paso, Texas.

I heard that music, and it made me pressure my parents into taking us to see the movie at the drive in theatre.

Hearing the music also inspired me to shoplift the novel from the drugstore, so I could read it.

I taught myself to pick out the melody on our piano, and many, many years later, I learned there were lyrics that went with the melody, which of course, I memorized.

As a starving young adult hitch-hiking all over America, I even used a Berlitz language handbook to teach myself a few phrases in Hebrew (most of which I’ve forgotten).

Then, as a soldier in the United States Army serving in Viet Nam with the 101st Airborne Division, I got the totally unexpected opportunity of a lifetime, a thirty day special leave to visit Israel.

WOW!!!

All because of a song recorded by Ferrante and Teicher.

In Korea, I finally learned to strum chords on a guitar, so I could accompany myself when I was singing.

Now, you can see my video on the YOU TUBE web site of ME(!), playing my guitar and singing the “EXODUS” song!!!

Ain’t that something?

Yeah, I’m “down with the struggle”, but it ain’t just the struggle for Israel or Jews, although being a convert in The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints, of necessity, that sort of goes with the territory.

My struggle is for an armed revolt right here in the United States of America, to restore our lost republic, our lost Constitution of the United States of America, the unalienable rights of individual citizens, the sovereignty of the several states (including their right to secede), our capitalist free enterprise economy, and to restore and preserve our traditional values of Christian family morality.

I also want to stop the continuing destruction of my own Caucasian race.

So, I have plenty of struggle right here and now.

Unfortunately, being an aging and physically deteriorating disabled war veteran, the harsh reality is that I can do very little, if anything.

Plus, I suspect it may be too late, that just like the ancient people written about in the Book of Mormon, our contemporary nation and our people are already condemned to utter destruction by their own wickedness and ignorance.

As for Sarah Palin, I’m a guy, so NATURALLY, I’m going to be attracted to her winking, winsome style, even though I’ll never vote for her, because I think she’s a “R.I.N.O.”, who will continue to collaborate with the Democrats to maintain the Congressional status quo.

Debbie, you ought to know by now that us guys are born suckers for gals, including gals like you.

We just cain’t help ourselves!

It’s biological, chemical, electrical, physiological, and scientific.

Just look at how all you females voted for John Fitzgerald Kennedy, based solely on his hair.

Anyway, I sure loved being in Israel, and war or no war, I wish EVERYBODY could go there to visit!

Just like the character, “PATTON”, said in the movie of that name:

“I love it – – – it’s a combination of the Bible – – – and Hollywood!”

Thank you.

I note in an early interview when she was still governor of Alaska and BEFORE she was picked for VP running mate, there is an Israeli flag prominently displayed in heroffice. To endear herself to her enormous Alaskan Jewish constituency (a mere 6,000)? I think not. I do believe she has been on record as a strong Israel supporter whatever her family dysfunction.

D: You don’t get it. She isn’t displaying the Israeli flag (which was not “prominently displayed” but tiny in the background of her office, almost hidden behind curtains–and really shouldn’t be in the office of a governor, anyway) for the Jewish voters–who don’t and won’t vote for her. This is to appeal to conservative Christians, who are pro-Israel, and there are millions of them, including many tens of thousands in Alaska. Don’t be so naive. She’s very opportunistic and patronizing. “On record” means that she said pro-Israel things, as both Bushes and Jimmy Carter did, too. She has never cast a single vote or enacted policy that had anything to do with Israel. Talk is cheap and meaningless. Gullibility and naivete even more cheap and common. And that’s what she’s counting on. It’s made her millions already, and she’s laughing at you all the way to the bank. DS

dan on June 9, 2011 at 9:39 pm

Sarah is still a sharp looking gal.

#1 Vato on June 9, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Debbie I bet SP is the only one pictured who waved the Israeli flag and hung out at random Chabad events before going national. And she still looks reasonably good. Also Rand Paul isn’t particularly anti-Israel. He just opposes all foreign aid. Let me know when u wanna go picket some Piston games together/ your ovulation schedule.

A1: WRONG. Rand Paul has singled out aid to Israel–NOT aid to Egypt–several times as something that should end, which is a common way anti-Semitic politicians appeal to fellow Jew-haters. Plus, he’s never condemned the campaign contributions his father refuses to return, which he accepted from the owner/operator of the Stormfront neo-Nazi website. Rand Paul has also made pro-Iran statements and attacked the US for Gitmo and “torturing” terrorists. He and Dennis Kucinich have a lot in common.

Bush went to Chabad events and so did Michael Jackson. And as for Palin, her display–NOT waving–of the Israeli flag in the back of her office was not for Jewish voters–who don’t and won’t vote for her. Palin’s Israeli flag and Jewish star props were and are calculated to appeal to conservative Christians, who are pro-Israel, and there are millions of them and many thousands of them in Alaska. Don’t be so naive. She’s very opportunistic and patronizing. Talk and symbolism are cheap and meaningless.DS

A1 on June 9, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Debbie, You’re correct regarding Rand Paul singling out Israel, and Israel exclusively, for the elimination of American foreign aid, and Mrs. Palin’s support of Paul as a candidate for the senate. And, yet, knowing fully his and his father’s disdain for the Jewish state, a very, very popular Jewish talk show host and Israel supporter, Mark Levin, wholeheartedly supported Rand Paul’s candidacy for senate, too.

    Neils60 on June 10, 2011 at 9:49 pm

From what I gather, she wore the star when visiting Israel, and most recently in honor of Jerusalem Day. I don’t think she wears that star as a regular fashion accessory. And lest we forget, Elvis also occasionally wore such a star.

Raymond in DC on June 9, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Debbie, speaking of Rand Paul and Ron Paul, I believe that they’ve written articles and contributed money to the “Council for Conservative Citizens” (which is a far-right organization that’s anti-black, anti-hispanic and anti-semitic)?

So I’m not hopping on the Ron Paul & Rand Paul bandwagon just yet like other conservatives did, because on where they both exactly stand.

“A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on June 9, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    I want to clarify I do think remembering what happened to the Jews a few generations ago is important.

    What I don’t like about the Holocaust remembrance is when its lessons aren’t taken to heart and people use it as a prop to show off crocodile tears on a past Jewish tragedy when in fact they are indifferent to or even hostile to Jewish survival today.

    If such people can’t be bothered to draw the dots, historical lessons are wasted upon them.

    Pro-Israel symbolism doesn’t tell you a thing about how pro-Israel someone actually is. If you don’t care about substance, you’re not helping Jews and the State Of Israel.

    Debbie’s point remains a valid one.

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 12:16 am

Yup.

Debbie isn’t swayed much by symbolism.

I was turned off by a UK Labor Party MP who wrote in the Jerusalem Post about the millions being spent to refurbish Auschwitz-Birkenau.

It made me angry. The European whores care more for dead Jews than they do for the living State Of The Jews. That’s who they spend their money on while they bash Israel and support the PA and HAMAS to the hilt.

I told them to take their Holocaust memorial money and shove it where the sun don’t shine. Symbolism and a fake love of Jews is tawdry, cheap and meaningless.

If you don’t like live Jews, who cares what you do for the dead ones? Jews aren’t completely stupid. They know the difference.

If you can’t be bothered to support Israel, all the fake guilt trips over the largest Jewish cemetery in the world doesn’t impress me.

NormanF on June 9, 2011 at 11:53 pm

Yeah, go ahead and hate Sarah Palin’s guts, and anyone who supports her. Bizarre. You people have something genuinely wrong with you.

David Lanham on June 10, 2011 at 1:36 am

    David, I happen to like your previous post on this website and for most of the part, you agree what DS writes and what us the regular posters write, but your missing the point bro, we and Debbie are NOT bashing and hating Sarah Palin, DS is only giving out and refuting the facts about this woman.

    David, all politicans from both parties have done all sorts of pandering, whether it’s to jews, muslims, etc., it happens. Guess what David, Obama, Carter, Clinton and all Democrats have worn the “Star of David” neckless on over their necks, and they haven’t done much for Israel and the samething can be said for Bush Sr., Bush Jr., Reagan, etc., politicans are NOT honest people dude and you should know that!

    “A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on June 10, 2011 at 10:51 am

re: Rand Paul. We know who Rand Paul is. I don’t think anyone knows who Palin really is.

ari-free on June 10, 2011 at 1:42 am

It is designed for people who get excited over “bright and shiny object”. In fact, the wearing of yarmulkes and other Jewish accessories by non-Jews in very public settings is silly at best, and flagrant pandering at worst. It is as cheap a gesture as putting on a turban or Indian headdress at an ethnic event. The best compliment you can show a mature audience is to be yourself and act normally. Most people prefer being treated like adults, especially when it involves political matters.

worry01 on June 10, 2011 at 2:40 am

    This is the smartest comment Ive read so far! Please, Debbie couldnt BE more right about non-Jews wearing the Star. In our family (not saying this for all Jews), we dont feel the need to wear them to “prove” we are Jewish. I know that’s not the argument here but just “sayin'”…

    bostonjewess on June 10, 2011 at 10:28 am

To answer the question, I’m unimpressed.

I’m one of those conservative Christians that are pro-Israel. Her wearing a Star of David is not going to convince me that she is pro-Israel. I don’t think that being truly pro-Israel is the least bit palatable to the Republicon party elites of whose approval is required. She could have Star of David pendants coming out of her nose, ears and every other bodily orifice, in public, but out of public view she’ll have to be in agreement with those elites to even be considered for a cabinet post, much less president. Since she was actually on the ticket in ’08 she already has the elites’ blessing.

In other words, Debbie’s right again.

CornCoLeo on June 10, 2011 at 3:46 am

Speaking as an agnostic who tried to be religious and spiritual in my misguided youth, wearing a magen david doesn’t make you any more Jewish (or even remotely Jewish) just as wearing a pentagram would make you a Satanist.

Faith and belief come from within, not from some fashion statement, weird interpretive dance move or mastery of a language in its most archaic and arcane form.

At the risk of censure: I bet there were guys at Treblinka who wore magen davids when they greeted the deportees – “Ja, of course we are your kind, too. Allow us to lead you to the showers, ja?”

Another missive – when the last person from the race you hate most dies, who do you start hating next?

The Reverend Jacques on June 10, 2011 at 4:02 am

“At the risk of censure: I bet there were guys at Treblinka who wore magen davids when they greeted the deportees – “Ja, of course we are your kind, too. Allow us to lead you to the showers, ja?””

No, the nazis made the Jews wear a yellow star of David badge with the word Jude (German word for Jew).

ari-free on June 10, 2011 at 4:16 am

I am waiting to see any major political candidate discuss specifically, on a recurring basis, the never-ending examples of anti-Israeli bias in the media, on the campuses, in other politicians’ utterances, and publicize these issues on a constant and consistent basis.

I am also waiting to see such a politician discuss, on a recurring basis, the constant and recurring anti-Semitism (masquerading as anti-Zionism) of most of the “international community”. When I see this happen, I will begin to consider that such a politician might be pro-Israel.

Little Al on June 10, 2011 at 6:39 am

As the Apostle Paul told the Romans: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Seems that some posting on this item (and others) would be served well by that quote, regardless of whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not. To be angry and bitter about these things is to prevent yourself from becoming who you can really be.

You have a choice before you die; five minutes after you’re dead you’ll know whether you made the right choice.

A true conservative on June 10, 2011 at 7:49 am

To all Republicans. Wise up. The litmus test for true friends must be in DEEDS, not words, campaign promises (been there done that!)or cheap theatrics.

Jews few as we are can have real power when our politician friends on both sides know we will vote for them only AFTER we
their deeds prove worthy.

Thank you and Shabbat Shalom.

Susan on June 10, 2011 at 8:49 am

On Sarah Palin, I’m where Skunky is, except that prior to my reading this post, I wasn’t even aware that Sarah Palin wore a Jewish star necklace.

As for Rand and Ron Paul, Debbie’s response to A1 makes clear as to why I will not vote for either of those two for President under any circumstances. If one of them should–G-d forbid–be the GOP nominee, then I will vote for either a third party candidate or write in “None of the Above”.

JeffE on June 10, 2011 at 9:27 am

I am concerned that people do NOT know who Mrs. Abraham is or who her husband is. & Who Darrell Issa is. & Who Grover Norquist is. etc., etc. Without public awareness how can people evlauate politicans like Palin according to who they are allied with? I see that so many conservative believe in Palin, and also in Issa without haing sufficient information on which to base their judgment. This is how Obama was elected. Too few people had too little information – and seemed happy to stay that way!

Dr.Nona3 on June 10, 2011 at 9:29 am

It seems like the Republicans are going off the deep end (the Democrats fell off during the FDR administration). I would recommend that you knuckleheaded Republcans follow this advise: it not enough to talk about the truth (and pander) you have to become the truth. If you won’t be serious and become the truth this Republic will be lost and the Marxists will have won.

Doc Holiday on June 10, 2011 at 9:43 am

Hmmm…. a quitter and now a poser. Maybe we should start calling her Sarah Poser.

pats on June 10, 2011 at 10:19 am

Debbie: we know Palin can’t be elected (although she can put Obama back in by running as an independent). That leaves RINO’s Romney, Huntsman, and Paulenty. The only other credible candidates out there right now would be Rick Perry and Paul Ryan. Please tell me Perry’s not an Islamopandering RINO like the rest of them. No idea about Ryan outside of his approach to fiscal issues.

adam on June 10, 2011 at 11:06 am

Agree-it irritates me when celebs and Palin types decide its hip and expedient to look the part…

Brian Cuban on June 10, 2011 at 11:31 am

Gov. Palin has done much to raise awareness of the plight of Israel. For that she should be commended. As for her daughter, Bristol she made her choices and is responsible for them. Those that have children know after a certain age it’s time for them to live their own lives. As for a pendant it does mean something. Just how much depends on the wearer and the pendant. Just like when johnny depp wore a che guevara pendant. A hollywood clown wearing something he knows little about. The only stock I put in it is that he’s a fool. If Gov. Palin wearing a Star of David is helping to raise awareness and show solidarity, then it is a good thing.

M: In fact, Sarah Palin and her lawyers actively promoted and got lucrative magazine articles, covers, reality TV show opportunities and speeches to promote her single motherhood. That was SARAH, NOT Bristol. And Sarah Palin abandoned her family for her own selfish political and fame ambitions, which is when her daughter became pregnant. Again, that was SARAH, NOT Bristol. Wake up. Sarah hasn’t raised the awareness of anything, other than “ME, ME, ME!” DS

mo on June 10, 2011 at 11:36 am

I’d much rather wear my Uzi…..

Shootist on June 10, 2011 at 11:47 am

Can any of you Sarah Palin butt kissers name one thing she has done that I can support and get behind when it comes to america?

Because as far as I’m concerned, she’s not electable and I’m finding out more and more…as debbie said…that this is all about “me me me, I I I”.

Squirrel3D on June 10, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    Squirrel3D, you couldn’t have said it any better dude, I haven’t seen or heard anything that she said that I support and that’s 100% USofA!

    Her followers are like the Obama voters from three years at this time, and we all remember that, so I don’t have to explain how all of the Obama ass-kissers were in 2008 (which was embarrassing and disgusting that it nauseated me). Last year in a election in Arizona, she supported John McCain against his opponent who was very conservative, and last I checked, McCain is for “amnesty for illeagl aliens” and to me Palin supports illegal immigration like a globalist. So far with Palin and her supporters, it’s “style”, but no “substance” whatsoever.

    “A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on June 10, 2011 at 1:45 pm

I think a more appropriate moniker for her would be Sarah Beyond-the-Palin.

ConcernedPatriot on June 10, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Running Joke Of The Day: Jews flee the Kotel from Arab stone throwers on the Temple Mount cuz leftists in the Israeli Police and Border Police service decided to make life easier for Arab (redundant phrase) anti-Semites.

That’s what Jewish niceness towards those who literally want them dead results in.

Don’t expect the Treasonous Jews in Israel’s security services to be shown the door after today’s preventable incident.

NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I am 100% Palinista! and I love you guys anyway!

sharon on June 10, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I’m no Palin fan, but at least her stand on guns is good.

Jarhead on June 10, 2011 at 3:30 pm

I was very impressed when I saw Palin wearing that Star. I love her in-your-face style, and it’s the exact opposite approach of the passive-aggressive Obama. Just like her comments, “Drill, baby, drill” and “I love the smell of emissions”, she openly mocks her critics and the likes of Obama, who wants Israel destroyed but doesn’t have the balls to say so. I have always hated passive-aggressives and Palin is the exact opposite of one.

DL: Actually, there’s nothing in-your-face about her, except her shameless self-promotion and promoting/glamorizing her baby-mama daughter on reality shows and magazine covers. As for everything else, she won’t take questions at speeches (that’s part of her contract), and when she answers fair and easy open-ended ones, she never stops screwing up, then always blames it on the “gotcha” media. If that’s “in your face” and ‘having the balls,” then we have different definitions.

Oh, and BTW, she is not “in your face” about Islam, immigration, or anything important. She openly supports affirmative action, Title IX, and constantly talks about the “moderate Muslims.” Never ever “has the balls” to call any of that out, including Muslims. Uh, that is passive, very passive. Mocking critics is up there with wiping one’s butt after relieving one’s self as a rare talent. Everyone does it. But when someone calls her out, they are the “lamestream media” or a “gotcha” questioner, etc.

You have no problem with her racism in supporting affirmative action based on race, ethnicity, and gender? And finally, not sure how her raising taxes on oil companies–which they passed on to everyone else in higher prices–helped solve our gasoline crisis, when it actually contributed to it. DS

David Lanham on June 10, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Well, I couldn’t care less if her daughter got pregnant a little too early and if they are making the best of it. Her family was already famous, it looks to me as though they are simply being proactive and positive about it. I don’t think they’re disgraced or a “baby mama”, or glorifying teen pregnancy. I don’t think they’re motivated by self-promotion, either, I think she wants to fix the country, isn’t sure she can pull it off, and is going to try and start a campaign and see if she can succeed. She isn’t perfect, but I don’t see anybody else who’s going to stop the out-of-control government. I think the extreme dislike of her by some conservatives is really strange. I think she’s another Reagan,tans she and Ron Paul are the only ones serious about cutting back the government. There’s nobody else, all the other Republicans will spend us blind and then we’ll either have total chaos or total tyranny, no thank you, I’m writing her in. I’m still buying silver and gold eagles, too, I hope you are. You guys here are worried about how great Sarah Palin looks, meanwhile our dollar is almost finished. Even if Palin got elected and did everything perfectly according to me, it’s too late. We owe too much and we don’t make enough money lol. I’m voting for her for the hell of it, she’s the only hope.

David Lanham on June 10, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    David, as someone NEITHER a Palinista OR Palin-hater, I must ask you to read what DS said again…and do so without feeling defensive or offended.

    I say that to you because when DS is saying why she is not a Palin fan, her facts are rock-solid. You may not like them but they are solid…if one is a TRUE conservative. She is the ONLY critic of Palin I have heard (on the left AND right) who actually can list substantive criticisms. The ONLY one.

    A TRUE Conservative SHOULD be upset with Palin managing her baby-mama daughter. DS is rock solid on that. And if you haven’t noticed, her nasty and stupid daughter Bristol has done more to embarrass and sully her OWN Mum than many Palin-haters. Their relaionship is sick. (And I am NOT sure if this is true, but a family member said that Palin let Bristol’s baby-daddy sleep over their house BEFORE he knocked up Bristol). As DS would ask “That’s Conservative”? NO. WAY.

    Out of wedlock births should NOT be glamourized. It’s not cool and NEVER good for the child. Bristol is the WORST poster child. She needs to go the eff away and raise her kid.

    I know why some people like Palin and I purposely avoid reading anything about her because so many have deified her and demonized her and I am ONLY interested in the TRUTH. Like it or not, we get that HERE.

    DS has been TOO RIGHT on so many Conservatives that I used to think were good guys. Andrew Breitbart. Sean Hannity. Michelle Malkin. It’s better to be initially upset when she posts the TRUTH and see if what she says is TRUE (which it always is) and you will slowly see yet another thing they have done that proves her point. She deals with FACTS…not because she is jealous or has a vendetta. You’ll see.

    Skunky on June 10, 2011 at 10:18 pm

I dont know. I still like her!

So what if she wears it. Yeah, Its opportunistic. Arent they All these politicians?

Haley on June 10, 2011 at 8:48 pm

Allen West needs to be President in 2012.
He is the only one who can beat that clown obama.

Stephen on June 10, 2011 at 11:00 pm

You know the Palinistas are OK with a Rockstar less than substantive campaign; reminds a lot of the Schwarzenegger crowd in 2003.

I agree, but nobody is going to meet every criteria of every person. The criterias we should be looking for are. (quickly off the top of my head, and)

Support for the U.S Constitution as inteneded by our founding father’s, as well as working to returning the Constitution to it’s intended meaning.

The person least likely to be swayed to join, (and become a puppet of), “the elite class” of the Republican Party.

The person who will show unwavering support to the current state (and even the possible expanding state) of Israel. What I mean by “the expanding state of Israel” are the gains of territory from her attacking enemies should they decide to make their move.

But most of all, the person most likely to crush Liberal Socialism in America.

There are a few more…but I have to go now….

Skunky, don’t be offended by being called drooling-on-yourself stupid? Ok. The two parties are hopelessly corrupt and they are traitors. Palin and Ron Paul are the only two who can possibly make them reform entitlements and stop the spending, borrowing, and printing. The only thing besides them is the so-called militia movement, which is laughable, there is no miltia movement. To the left of a would-be militia movement there’s the tea party, and half of them are simply Republican boosters who’re going to vote for Romney. What do you suggest? You’re worried about Palin’s daughter? Are you kidding? You should be supporting Palin and buying gold eagles, silver eagles, bags of rice, motor oil, filters, and maybe a honda civic 2-door that gets 35 mpg. I wouldn’t worry about Palin being perfect, or whether her supporters are stupid. I don’t think you realize how bad things are going to get. These two parties are not going to end entitlements until they bust. Or welfare, or borrowing, they’re not going to fix nafta, make China play fair, they’re not going to increase our revenue, encourage American business, grow jobs, pay off our debt, nothing! They’re going to destroy us, they work for the giant corporations and other interests that own them. Palin and Ron Paul are the only two who are honest about having capitalism again, we have a fascist governmental chinese communist system now, and it’s really too late, anyway. If I were you I’d forget about Palin’s family and start worrying about food and things like that, the shelves at walmart are going to be empty one of these days.

David Lanham on June 11, 2011 at 11:22 am

David, I agree with you the two parties being hopelessly corrupt. I agree with you that things are going to get bad. I agree with you where we are heading in this country BUT sorry, I do not support Ron Paul. His dismissal of Israel (amongst other things) does it for me. No support of Israel is a no-go for me.

As I said, I am NOT a Palin-hater or Palinista…but I became a CONSERVATIVE for a reason. I have NO INTEREST in being part of a hypocritical political group. I got my fill of that with the Liberals. I believe in morals, integrity and character…and that means calling out BAD Conservatives on their BS. Those phonies HURT the cause. We don’t need them.

With Palin, I do want to like her…but what DS shines the light on is FACT and important. She is the only one who honestly does it. You know how the Left are mental when it comes to her and how they say deranged things about her.

The problem lies with the ruling establishment. The Republican side had so much time to find someone who could save us from all those things you listed. It’s 2 1/2 years with Obama the Destroyer AND all we have are predictable retreads. It’s disgusting.

I know how you feel but it is best not to get so emotional about what DS illustrates and instead really look at what she says and ask if it is TRUE and SUBSTANTIVE…and the answer is always YES. She has shined the light on peeps I thought were great and it was a big let down. But instead of getting shirty at her…I saw that she was reporting the TRUTH and I appreciate and respect that.

Skunky on June 11, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Palin’s gonna do more for Israel, because she’s the only candidate who could prevent us from going broke. If our money is worthless, nobody’s going to be able to do anything for Israel, anyway. Even Ryan was talking about only borrowing a trillion a year instead of 1.6 trillion. And they settled on 60 billion in ‘cuts’ lol. I think it’s pretty funny. Palin and Ron Paul are the only ones who aren’t loyal to the party, everybody else is going to destroy our country so they can make us a plantation for the people who run the world. You don’t really have the luxury of rejecting Ron Paul or Palin, you can if you like, but like I said it’s too late for our economy anyway, I guess it doesn’t really matter.

David Lanham on June 11, 2011 at 2:22 pm

Well David, I do agree with you on Paul Ryan. His plan is merely cutting the rate of spending and NOT getting rid of stupid entitlements and all the extraneous waste. And his, so far is the best thing offered. Pathetic.

I also agree with you that perhaps it is too late. How sad for America…a once great country taken down by greedy, selfish idiots who took our freedom and liberty for granted. :(

Skunky on June 11, 2011 at 7:05 pm

Debbie, I am a zionist christian who fully supports the Jewish people and the nation we call Israel. It amazes me that most people are ignorant of the fact that the people of the tribe of Judah are only 1/13 of the nation of Israel. There were 12 sons of Israel(Jacob), and because of Joseph saving the entire family, Israel the man blessed the two sons of Joseph as being his own sons, with a greater blessing to the younger son Ephraim. Joshua, the successor of Moses, was from the tribe of Ephraim. As was Jereboam, the first king of the split nation Israel after the secession resulting from the folly of Rehoboam. Moses was not a Jew, he was of the tribe of Levi, a fact forgotten or explained away by most modern Jews. Abraham was not a Jew, although he is often called that by most ignorant Christians. Anyway, I concur with your assessment of previous presidents. GW continually pushed for a Palestinian state, why? It is none of his or our business. Palestinians never had a previous state there before. They are descendants of the Biblical people known as the Philistines. They were marauders that pretty much were a thorn in the side of Israel until King David successfully dealt with them. If the Palestinians really wanted success they would make it their number one priority to Bless the nation of Israel, as the US did in the past. I noticed that every time the US comes out and criticizes Israel that we get slammed with some weather disaster. Right after Obama tried to embarrass the Israeli President with his idiotic speech about the 67 borders we suffered those massive tornados. This year has been one of the worst on record, sure it’s just a coincidence. Did Palin wear the star of David for conservative christians, I don’t know. I was amazed at how quick she went to the aid of John McCain during the last election, in light of all the bad things his people said about her, and the way they blamed her for his loss(something he can proudly claim was his own doing). McCain is certainly not a conservative, but I am amazed at how much liberals hate SP. I do believe the truth will come out. After all, just look at all the truth we are now finding out about Mr. Wiener.

william henry on June 11, 2011 at 8:29 pm

william: those who were descended from other tribes besides Judah are still called Jews.

ari-free on June 12, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    Ari-free, incorrectly and ignorantly so. A Levite is from the tribe of Levi, Ephraimite from the tribe of Ephraim, etc. All thirteen tribes are Israelites, or Israeli in today’s lingo. After the civil separation(there was no war), the 10 tribes to the north were called Israel. Judah, Benjamin, and the tribe of Levi comprised the nation of Judah. Tell a Texan he is really a Californian and you might get the idea. Any citizen of the 50 states is a citizen of the US. If you are Texan you don’t pay taxes to Georgia. If you were a citizen of the Nation of Israel after the separation you did not pay taxes to Judah, nor did you fight with them. You are mistaken and confused, or either just plain stupid.

    william henry on June 12, 2011 at 9:17 pm

I really don’t believe one has to be Jewish to honor Israel and the Jewish people around the world.

If you don’t like Sarah Palin that is fine. Don’t seek out flimsy reasons and excuses to belittle her as a person, however. Like so many gentiles, she is a strong supporter of Israel. Live with it and stop whining.

Jerry Haberer on June 13, 2011 at 6:45 am

Since this is an old post (nearly a year old), no one’ll read it, so I’ll say – in response to Debbie’s rants against Palin – you’re all wet. Palin has staying power and, although a politician, her record of busting up a very corrupt GOP in AK before and during her tenure as Governor, is solid.

But the shoot-from-the-lip Schussel is WAY over the top on this one; and Palin WILL have her day. I’m a great admirer; and I’m fascinated to see that Schlussel is one of the few political observers on either side of the aisle to comment on what I, too, feel is somewhat glaring in its omission – namely, any criticism by Palin of pisslam. But I still feel that Palin is very well aware of the situation and the dangers of an encroaching pisslam, but her object – at least, at this point in time – is NOT to call out & pick a fight with the mudslimes, but to focus on the economy and the failed policies of the current Fraud-in-Chief. She’s an extremely powerful, effective and influential! – voice for Conservatism.
