Sexism and Free Market Comedy.

The following press release was issued today.  Read it first, and we’ll all join up afterward for a big helping of irony. Sen. Menard and Rep. Fairclough angered by Letterman joke, encourage apology to all women. Wasilla, AK, June 15, 2009 – Alaska Senator Linda Menard and Alaska Representative Anna Fairclough today expressed their concerns regarding CBS comedian David Letterman’s sexually exploitative comments regarding Governor Sarah Palin’s young daughter, and his refusal to apologize not only to the Palin family, but to a nation of women he offended. “I have been watching this progress for nearly a week and still…

Daily Wrap Up – Showing Some Skin.

Wow.  If there was a theme for the day, it would have to be “skin.”  Who knew there would be enough of it to do a whole wrap-up on the “unwrapped,” as it were. First, the governor herself. (She’s sitting all the way on the right) Seems that the governor had another one of her wardrobe challenged moments.  Standing in front of the closet, on the way to a veterans’ memorial event that commemorated members of the Alaskan military who paid the ultimate price for their country, where hundreds had come, some from thousands of miles away, she chose…. a teeny little…

Where are Those Garbage Bags? Palin’s Wardrobe is Liberated.

Palin’s wardrobe malfunction.  It was all the buzz for a while.  We were told that she didn’t know about the $180,000 in clothes, didn’t ask for the clothes, didn’t want the clothes, didn’t need the clothes, was going to donate the clothes to charity, did an audit of the clothes, sent them all back in garbage bags, and on and on.  That red leather jacket may as well have been an albatross around Palin’s neck during the last weeks of the campaign. Republican donors were furious that their donations to the RNC were used to puff and fluff the VP…

Dudeapalooza Continues!

The First Dude’s East Coast Tour continues.  Tonight, he was the guest of Fox News at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  Wanda Sykes was the roaster du soir. The cameras missed the money shot. Todd Palin was nowhere to be seen when this little zinger came: Governor Palin…she’s not here tonight. She pulled out at the last minute. You know, somebody should tell her that’s not really how you practice abstinence. (audience laughs, gasps and says ooooooo) Oh, shut up. Come on, you’re going to be telling that one tomorrow. (laughter) [Open Thread is still active for off-topic posts]

The First Dude Takes Manhattan – and a Mudflatter is There.

When I heard that Sarah Palin was going to be at an Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute event in New York City, I wished very loudly that there would be a Mudflatter present at the event who could serve as a roving reporter/Mudspy.   I’ll have to remember to wish like that more often because I received an email from just such a person – a NY Mudpuppy who was willing to write up an account of the event!  Much to my dismay, the governor cancelled her appearance.  I’m starting to think if the governor was a racehorse, and her appearance at an event…

Palin’s New Attorney General Pick – Caribou Ken?

From the moment Sarah Palin got dubbed “Caribou Barbie” back in September of ’08, I have thought of Lt. Governor Sean Parnell as “Caribou Ken”.  Why not Todd as Caribou Ken?  He’s too involved.  Ken was never part of the action…  He was just sort of a vague presence.  Kind of a shadowy blonde sidekick that never really did much except sit in the passenger seat of the pink convertible “dream car” and smile.  He has recently come out with his very own newsletter…I’ll have to dig it up and see what he’s been doing. But the latest rumors seem…
