I shudder to think that if John McCain had been elected president in 2008 this woman would have been a heartbeat from the presidency.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has accused the president of shucking and jiving. What does this term mean? According to Yahoo Answers it means “To shuck and jive” originally referred to the intentionally misleading words and actions that African-Americans would employ in order to deceive racist Euro-Americans in power, both during the period of slavery and afterwards. The expression was documented as being in wide usage in the 1920s, but may have originated much earlier.
“Shucking and jiving” was a tactic of both survival and resistance. A slave, for instance, could say eagerly, “Oh, yes, Master,” and have no real intention to obey. Or an African-American man could pretend to be working hard at a task he was ordered to do, but might put up this pretense only when under observation. Both would be instances of “doin’ the old shuck ‘n jive.”* So what did Palin mean when she used the phrase? Share your thoughts.
Wayne Brady finally apologized for Trig Palin joke. Sarah Palin was the candidate that makes her fair game, but making jokes about a special needs baby is nnt funny under any set of circumstances.
Fox News loved Sarah Palin when she stepped on the national stage 4 years ago, and now they love Paul Ryan. Watch the slip and you will see the affection and the words are the same.
Clean cut Wayne Brady is the host of CBS Price is Right, and he is also a standup comic. He recently included a joke about Sarah Palin’s special needs son in one of his comedy routines. Is anything off limits? Sarah Palin is a public figure, but her Down’s syndrone son Trig is not. So why would he be fodder for a comediane? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.
CNN played the Pink song Stupid Girls prior to a Sarah Palin clip. CNN claims this was unitentional, but tell me what you think. Were they making a statement about Palin?
I am not a fan of Sarah Palin. Since she made her entry on the national stage she has been a polarizing figure. You either love her or you hate her and there are very few people who fall in the middle. I will just say I am not in the love camp. Let’s be clear we are talking about her politics. She is the definition of divisive. palin is also a Fox News contributor. so if I wanted to see her I could see her thre and I choose not to do that, but now she’s coming to daytime. She’s sitting down and “palling” around with the enemy. She has shown disrespect for the president during her run for vice president, and she has not just questioned him politically but she has challenged his patriotism. I can still remember her standing in front of a crowd saying that President Obama did not love the country like those in the crowd. So the idea of watching her tomorrow on the Today Show does not appeal to me. So I am going to do what everyone has a right to do and that is to not watch. I’m sure their ratings will go through the roof, but this is one household that will be watching Good Morning America tomorrow.
The Conservatives are meeting in DC this weekend and these were some of the performers at one of their workshops. Pay particular attention to the clip at the 1:50 mark.
Is this for real? The conservatives just can not seem to warm up to the frontrunner, Mitt Romney. They have had love affairs with Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain and now the brand new Newt, but they still yearn for something different. Could Sarah be the Savior? If so Lord help us all.
Twitter is great in the right hands, but sometimes 140 characters can get you in trouble. Orlando Jones thought his tweet was funny and when challenged he said it was a joke. Joking about killing anyone is never funny. the stories I read said some conservative bloggers were upset, but I am not in the conservative camp, but I too think it was out of line. What do you think? Funny or dangerous?
