A touch of politics

This woman just won't go away. Sarah Palin apparently gave an interview (or more) saying that she feels as if the media took advantage of her, Tina Fey and Katie Couric capitalized on her, and basically strikes back at her critics. I'm not going to sit here and bash her for doing so, nor am I going to defend her, but doesn't this seem a bit late? She couldn't do this all while she was running, or at least a week or two after it was all over, rather than right before Obama is about to be inaugurated? I don't know, but to me it just seems like she got used to being in the spotlight and doesn't want to go back to her igloo up there in Alaska, and this the best way to do it. You can read an article about it here.

(soon to be ex)President Bush gave his last speech to the American public this week defending his presidency. Now, I may be a little biased about the Katrina thing, since I live in Louisiana and had more than a few friends and family that live(d) in New Orleans, so I'll leave that alone. Having not seen the speech yet, myself, I don't know what all he said, but I know he defended the war and tried to get to people to start liking him. From my understanding, it didn't work. The man just needs to go away and accept his role as the worst president in history, however, in years to come, the good things he did may come to light, as they have with other presidents that weren't so popular, Nixon, for example. My opinion on the man, aside, you can read summary of what he said here.

Have any of you ever seen A Christmas Carol? Specifically the one with George C. Scott? If so, think about the ghost of Christmas future, then look at Ann Coulter. To me, she looks like a blonde version of that apparition. I have no respect for this woman. She has made a career of causing controversy, even more so than political pundits and paparazzi. Apparently, she has written a new book and has been making the rounds. I happened to catch a snippet of her stop on The View. Apparently, she says that Barack Obama, Halle Berry, and others of mixed race have abandoned their white side in order to get ahead. I don't know the exact wording of what is written, but that is preposterous, then again, she probably wrote it just to get people talking...or maybe she just wants to bash Obama. Also, she says that single mothers are a tool of the liberals to ruin the country (in not so many words, but it is implied). WTF?!? On top of all this, Elisabeth Hasslebeck, the most conservative woman on morning television seemed like she was about hurl just because she was sitting next to this woman. As you can see from the below video, she attacks Barbara Walters, which is a no-no. Luckily, Barbara kept her composure and didn't sink to the level of this woman (she left that for Sherry). Still, I have to wonder, why this woman keeps getting booked on shows if all she does is cause controversy and is good for nothing else.

Let's lighten things up. Here is a satirization of her on The Boondocks. I wonder if she's really like this behind the scenes...lol

*high five* on all three assessments.

Sarah Palin: Keep whining, woman, I want you to make sure you'll never run for pres.

Bush: Well. I don't need to say anything about him.

Coulter: Your Christmas Carol analogy made me laugh out loud. One of those obnoxious people who will say anything to get noticed.
