MAKING FUN OF TRIG  5:30 pm May 11, 2010

by Jim Newell

  • SO MUCH MONEY LEFT TO BE MADE: “NEW YORK — Sarah Palin’s new book has a title, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, and a release date, Nov. 23, publisher HarperCollins announced Tuesday.” Sounds like a good book, if not the best. [AP/USA Today]

I don’t get it. Does anyone think that Harper Collins really backs her projects or push them just for the money?

When my family arrived in this country four months ago, we spoke no
English and had no money in our pockets. Today, we own a nationwide
chain of wheel-balancing centers. Where else but in America, or
possibly Canada, could our family find such opportunity? That’s why,
whenever I see the Stars and Stripes, I will always be reminded
of that wonderful word: flag!

charlesdegoal May 11, 2010 at 5:46 pm

They may look alike, but are books and there are beurks. For example, “Infinite Jest” is a book, while “Going Rogue” is a beurk. With few exceptions, politicians and non-literary celebrities write (?) beurks, not books, which can only be written by actual authors. This distinction should be taught in school.

It will include “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” according to HarperCollins, along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”

As the piece notes, $arah the snowgrifer skipped C’Addle on her last book flogging adventure. Maybe she’ll come ’round this time. She could do cheeky event at one of the sports venues and 70,000 could stand, turn around, drop our trousers and give her a 140,000 bun salute.

[re=575240]the problem child[/re]: Yup, like I said, select all, cut, paste, and a book is written. Though the pasting method with the monkeys is less random than Sarah doing so with Word.

http://theimmoralminority.blogspot.com/2010/03/law-willow-and-wicked-witch-of-wasilla.html

And maybe she’ll have a couple of chapters on how not to raise a son who is such a pain in the ass that a local judge tells him to enlist in the Army or go to jail.

Well, this’ll be another title that Palinites can not read then put on their bookshelf to make them feel like they’re literate. And I’m sure most of the material’s going to be from the public domain, for maximum moneytude. My suggestion: put in some HP Lovecraft; not like anyone’s going to read past the first few pages anyway.

Family: I sure got a big one! You try and fight off Todd every night he isn’t having meetings w/Gertie Van S!

Faith: I believe in whatever parts of whatever religion I happen to have heard about in Sunday school from time to time, and that includes exorcism’n’stuff so long as it’s done for Jeebus.

Flag: …mmmffmm…a flag is just a piece of cloth, and no one but a moran would confuse loyalty to one’s nation-state with “honors” granted to or “pledges” spoken toward a piece of fabric….What? Huh? Oh, must’ve been dozing, just woke up. I love the United States Old Glorious Flag! It’s so beautyfull! We should tinker with the Constitution to make burning it a crime because that is the greatest threat to our Flag. Don’t tred on me!

Lovin’ Every Stitch: Reflections on Flag

Flag. Even the very word makes me proud to be a Real American. The only thing better than the flag itself, is the bravery of other people’s children that we send to die to defend it. Little did Betsy Ross know the power of those 50 stars when she made the first flag. How could she have known that thanks to Reagan we would easily become Jesus’ favorite Global Superpower! When the ‘lamestream’ media says to burn the flag and to worship the flag’s sworn enemy, muslin, you just tell ‘em “No ma’am, islam!”

“It will include “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” according to HarperCollins, along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”

Interestingly enough, it seems that Sarah wouldn’t even win Alaska if the election were held today. 48% said they wouldn’t vote for her. Another 25% said they would start to vote for her and then quit halfway through. Maybe courting the illiterate demographic at a time when everyone is going back to school wasn’t such a bright idea.

[re=575372]Bearbloke[/re]: Depends on whether he wants an open casket or not. If so, .17 HMR in the heart. If not, 12 gauge in the mouth. Remember, kids, you want to hit the midbrain, not the cortex, and definitely not the mostly blank space between the temples. You’ll just wind up severing an optic nerve or two and surviving. McCain’s old school, though, so I’m thinking he’d use a .45.

Not that I really think he’d shoot himself; a couple weeks with the other cranky old retirees in Arizona and he’ll feel right at home. And he can get a Fox “analyst” gig that should pay enough to keep a pied-a-terre on Capitol Hill.

It will include “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” according to HarperCollins, along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”

as BarackMyWorld said, that’s not a book. It’s a facebook entry.

[re=575262]thehelveticascenario[/re]: My favorite Lovecraft quote:
“Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity.”
It would be great if that somehow made it into St Sarah’s new opus .

[re=575407]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Eh, she’d screw that up in no time. Skim most of the money into her wardrobe/makeup/new car fund, and blow the rest on commercials produced by “Bristol’s PR agency,” aka Todd + MS Paint + iMovie. And I don’t care how many bulk-purchases Roger Ailes makes; that book’s not going to make its advance back.

There are only two ways to mount a serious presidential bid. 1) Get the fat cats to back you, the way Shrub did. 2) Mount a netroots campaign, like Hopey or Ron Paul, which takes organizational skills and hard work. Sarah has no chance at either of those, and nobody is ever going to hand her a national campaign the way McCain did. She’s just Quayle in a dress.

Bet they could put a new cover on the old “book” and the sheeple wouldn’t know the difference because they didn’t read it the first time either. hey! i may be on to something! also

What’s next – a Sara Palin comic book and a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor?

[re=575408]Lazy Media[/re]: No one ever jerked off to Photoshopped pictures of Quayle.

You know who else led a movement based on propaganda about faith, families, and flags?

[re=575180]BarackMyWorld[/re]: Remarkably similar, actually, to that ClusterFox “interview” show she filmed where the people weren’t actually interviewed by her.

The Gov’Nor has become a parody of herself. And that is not healthy. You betcha!

[re=575182]Scarab[/re]: Well, Bristol is seeing some guy whose name I forget but he has boinked her before, and was caught doing it again. This might be her mystery “roommate” and she looked pretty porky at the recent event in NYC, so…..
