Alaskan Ladies Are Sexist Over Their Own Lady Governor Lady

That Alaska blog that all of the hipsters are reading now has pictures from the Alaska Women Reject Palin protest in Anchorage this weekend, which the blogger claims was “the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state.” It looks like Code Pink flew some folks in, given the high percentage of “filthy hippie” action we’re seeing in these photos.

    How does Code Pink have that much money?

  • loudmouthredhead

    Mmmm…filthy hippie action.

    Given the population of the state, that actually might be the biggest rally in the state.

  • loudmouthredhead

    Haha. “Puck”…See what the did there? *Snort* Oh those witty Alaskans!

  • Vanity Smurf

    Oh, a hockey pun! How clever!

  • magic titty

    Witty. I guess the “Puck Off” sign was already taken?

    fun fact – 98% of all puns blow.

  • rambone

    The second largest political rally in Alaska takes place in the delivery room whenever Palin pops out another baby.

  • CivicHoliday

    Where are the photos of Palin firing into the crowd with her shotgun from a bi-plane? Alaska ran out of wolves to kill, but they have plenty of angry women.

  • Viva la Cynthia

    She does supposedly have an 80% approval rating in Alaska, so it’s understandable how they would want to keep her there.

  • CrunchyKnee

    Teh Alaskans are bringing the PAIN to Palin.

    I’d watch out though, they shoot from airplanes up there in “typical small town meth America.”

  • ManchuCandidate

    Two minutes in the box for a bad pun.

  • KittyKatMan

    Hillary, Sibelius, Michelle O, Jill, etc should put together a similar rally together somewhere not so near the north pole.

  • Cape Clod

    Any chance the Code Pink element could be lured onto an ice floe?

  • Tawmn

    Where is the MSM on this one? Lazy ass latte sipping libruls.

  • Borat

    Did Caribou Barbies secretary, I mean EXECUTIVE assistant call them to say “Stop Protesting, Protesting NOW BEEITCH?” America needs to know if the Snowbilly hats protesters as much as they hate bloggers and Libertarian-librarians

  • columnv

    This was my fav:

    http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/14/alaska-women-reject-palin-rally-is-huge/rally13/

    The crow says, “beware of tricksters”

    This must make sense to people who don’t have sunlight for like 10 months out of the year and who have to deal with foreign policy towards the USSR and China like every day or so.

  • KittyKatMan

    [re=96296]Tawmn[/re]: They’re too busy showing McCain lying in his speeches and ads. Contessa Brewer is a fekking rightwing cute c*nt.

  • Viva la Cynthia

    It would be great to get some kind of nation-wide lipstick-related protest together to demonstrate that just because we may all have vaginas, women don’t all support Palin and her craziness (and many of us are kind of insulted at the implication of McCain’s that we would). I can’t come up with any good ideas, though.

    Maybe, we should all wear bright red lipstick until the election? Or no lipstick at all? But who would even notice that? Should we write “I don’t support Palin!” on public mirrors with lipstick? Help me out here.

  • moldilox

    how many trailers does she own?

  • JadedDIssonance

    Props to the McCain/Failin sign in the background. Looking through those pics, looks like Alaskan Moms are pretty witty!

  • rambone

    [re=96305]JadedDIssonance[/re]: It actually says “McPain” so it’s actually even wittier!

  • OzoneTom

    I’ll bet that the Russians are nervous about their citizenry glancing over, seeing this sort of activism and getting dangerous ideas.

  • NoWireHangers

    Also on Mudflats, a $1500 Sarah Palin for Governor frisbee. Ha! Hahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha!

  • WadISay

    [re=96305]JadedDIssonance[/re]: This is harder-hitting than most of Obama’s ads.

  • grendel

    [re=96288]CivicHoliday[/re]: You obviously know little about guns.. You wouldn’t use a shotgun from an aircraft. She’s probably using an assault rifle (for hunting) that she’s converted to fully automatic (for hunting).

  • Servo

    No Hanson brothers? I’m disappointed.

  • Aurelio

    Those people don’t look like regular snowbillies to me. They are probably outside agitators. Pinko Canuckistanis is my guess.

  • wx insider

    Or coloreds? (hmmm.. they musta all got shot from the airplane)

  • Viva la Cynthia

    [re=96299]columnv[/re]: That one is nice.

    This one’s just darned cute: http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/14/alaska-women-reject-palin-rally-is-huge/rally75/

    Definitely doesn’t stand up to the Puck pun, though.

  • facehead

    I agree with these protesters, that fuckface from “The Real World” must be kept out of DC, and there is no one better to keep him out besides Palin.

    McCain/Palin 2008!!!

  • JadedDIssonance

    [re=96316]WadISay[/re]: I agree. CoatHangers for McCain is going up on my front lawn tomorrow.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    These women better hope McPalin wins in Nov. Otherwise I suspect she’s going to go back to AK & get them all fired, spike their water supply with male hormones, kill their pets & manage to have their girl children impregnated by the Inuits. Hell hath no fury like an angry, bat-shit crazy Christian woman.

  • S.Luggo

    Feh. The protestors conisted of the entire tenured faculty of the University of Alaska Anchorage. Because of this protest, all classes in snowmobile repair, meth lab construction, building bridges to nowhere, and live wolf-cub gutting and skinning had to be cancelled.

  • The Station Manager

    You spelled “Fuck” wrong, lady.

  • columnv

    [re=96330]Viva la Cynthia[/re]: he looks a bit like a rapist, though, no?

  • Viva la Cynthia

    [re=96351]columnv[/re]: Oh, yeah, no doubt–the “cute” was totally for the bears on the sign. Even an ironic “cute” doesn’t work for that guy.

  • limama56

    Guess they don’t like her in Alaska either.

  • TGY

    With Sarah Palin, the puck stops here.

  • TheWhig

    This hockey mom shit is going to play out great in the red south..you know..where hockey is such a popular sport.

  • NegativeZero

    What do the people of Alaska have against the Washington Capitals?

  • NotLaughing

    Well Puckity Puck Puck

  • fuzzy

    The rally was a real uplift after the past few weeks of feeling horror and shame about living in Alaska…more pics and video here: http://laurainak.blogspot.com

  • CivicHoliday

    [re=96320]grendel[/re]: You caught me. I’m not a “real” ‘murican because I have never used a firearm, and in all honesty would probably struggle distinguishing a rifle from a BB gun. I still like baseball and apple pie…does that mean I’m at least a half-breed?

    [re=96484]TheWhig[/re]: Word. Except for White People(tm) near Raleigh, many of whom are from “up north” (New Jersey) where the ponds were frozen six months a year, except when they’re not.

    Why does “hockey mom” resonate with voters at all any more than “lacrosse mom” would? Hockey is one effing expensive sport, and in parts of our land with only “indoor” ice, ice time is expensive, the rink is far away, and you might have practice at 2 am. And the gear isn’t exactly a pair of cleats, some shinguards, a weird Euro-look jersey, and a funny looking ball.

    But, of course, this will resonate with rich white folks who play hockey in Phoenix in July, the end.

  • Wee Mousie

    That ‘filthy hippie’ action you noticed emanates from REAL hockey moms in action.
