Slow news day, Andrea Mitchell reports that Sarah Palin is evil for making money.



When liberal women make money, you never hear other liberals attack them for doing so. Oprah Winfrey is the richest woman on the planet, and liberals don't begrudge her for her success. Many liberal women have made millions in Hollywood starring on television or in movies. I don't have a problem with women making money, but it appears that some liberals have a problem with conservative women making money. It's time for another appearance of the liberal hypocrisy monster. Sarah Palin was the only person on the national ticket in 2008 who wasn't a millionaire. Because liberals knew that fact, they filed 19 frivolous ethic violations complaints against her when she returned to Alaska in a vicious attempt to bankrupt Sarah Palin under the weight of accumulating legal fees totalling over $600,000. At the time, Palin only made $150,000 a year as the Governor of Alaska. The left labeled Sarah as a "quiter" for not staying on as Governor and going bankrupt in office. Once again, liberal logic never makes sense. Anyways, Sarah Palin has defied the left at every turn. Not only was she able to pay off her crushing legal debt, but she has reportedly made over twelve million dollars since resigning. In true to form fashion, the left is now harping on the success of Sarah Palin in her post governor era since they never got the opportunity to harp on a bankrupt governor Sarah Palin like they wanted too. NBC's Andrea Mitchell on Thursday's Today show, attacked Sarah Palin for "making millions on her book" and "getting paid for her speeches". So I guess it is ok for liberal women to fly in leer jets but not conservative women? Here's the biggest outrage by Andrea. Sarah wants "bendable straws" for her water bottles. You all heard right. How dare Sarah Palin ask for 2 cent bendable straws for her water bottle. This is actually outragous to Andrea for some reason. Andrea actually believes that everyday Americans could care less about Sarah Palin enjoying the fruits of her success as being a bad thing. I'm sure the kooks over at the Daily Kos and the Huffington Post took interest in Andrea's story, but most of if not all of "normal" America could frankly could care less. Of course in the name of the liberal hypocrisy monster, Andrea would never disclose to her limited viewers how much her contract with NBC is worth. I'm sure that Andrea won't be doing any hit pieces on the millions that liberal women like Katie Couric, Barbra Walters, Oprah Winfrey and many many others make. Oh no, let's just focus on the outrage that a conservative woman dares to make money and enjoy it. This is what Andrea had to say about Bill Clinton back on August 7, 2001 on the NBC Nightly News

Andrea Mitchell ""The self-declared 'Comeback Kid,' a hero to his new office neighbors in Harlem, now breaking a world record, signing the biggest non-fiction book deal in history, bigger than the Pope's. Bigger than Hillary Clinton's. Sources say as much as $12 million."

This is what Andrea had to say about Sarah Palin and her book deal

ANDREA MITCHELL: And since the campaign, she has made some changes herself. Remember this?

SARAH PALIN: We got rid of a few things in the governor's office that I just didn't think our citizens should be paying for. Like that luxury jet. It was a little bit over the top.

MITCHELL: A year-and-a-half later, the hockey mom from Wasilla is Palin Inc. making millions on books, a new TV series for Discovery - "Sarah Palin's Alaska." A lucrative contract with Fox News and highly paid speeches. But a speech she's been hired to give at Cal State - Stanislaus, one of 23 California campuses drowning in red ink, is causing a furor. That's because students found a copy of Palin's contract for the black tie event in a trash bin.

Andrea was so desperate to attack Palin, she left out some very key details as usual. Sarah Palin got rid of the state's luxury jet as the "governor", because she felt the state didn't need it. It wasn't her private jet. For her to bring up a decision Palin made as governor and then try to link it somehow to Palin flying on luxury jets herself is beyond desperate on Andrea's part. I guess in Andrea' perfect world, hockey moms are suppose to stay broke or not have access to the same amenities that Andrea herself and other successful liberal women can afford. Also, Andrea pointed out that Cal State- Stanislaus like other schools are fiscally in the red but she waited to nearly the end of her hit piece to point out that private donations are paying for Palin's speech not the school. I'm more then sure if Hillary Clinton was scheduled to speak at Cal State-Stanislaus, Andrea wouldn't' have said two words about it. The hypocrisy monster is full for now, thanks Andrea.

If I am correct: That is a picture of Katherine Helmond getting a face-lift from the Terry Gilliam movie, "Brazil"; probably the only funny part in the movie.
Or if I am mistaken, it could be Nancy Pelosi.

Back to the topic at hand: if Andrea Mitchell is calling Sarah Palin evil for making money, who does she think she is? She probably makes a whole lot more than Sarah Palin than you or I.

Heck, I have to earn a living and if I was raking in the cash to pay for my house, car and raising my kids to go to college then I guess I am "evil".

Though, I am not a successful person as I want to be right now, but remember the old saying:
"Money is the root of all evil"

My guess is that Mitchell is not getting much attention than Palin is now.

The flap over Palin making millions off of her name is not about her being "conservative" or "liberal." What sets most people off is the idea that Palin quit her job as an "elected official" to make money.

Typically, a politician waits until "after" completing their term in office before pursuing speaking tours and the like. However, I don't think anyone is holding her feet to the fire simply for making money.

Hell, Ann Coulter has made buckets of cash off writing books and paid speaking engagements. Frankly, I would think it was pundits like Coulter that Palin looked upon as a model. Palin obviously saw the opportunities for a popular conservative woman to get rich, other than being an elected politician.

The facts are, Palin is indeed a quitter and an intellectual light-weight. Yet she's not so dumb when it comes to using her popularity to make a dollar.

Oh I guess that makes us all evil according to the Nutcase Andrea Mitchell. I ask what is wrong with making money. Money talks and that is reality. Andrea Mitchell should practice what she preaches and move to a society that doesn't have this corrupting influence known as money. Of course in order to do that you have live like nomadic folks did centuries ago and forsake the modern conveniences that are associated with capitalism also.

p allen "The flap over Palin making millions off of her name is not about her being "conservative" or "liberal." What sets most people off is the idea that Palin quit her job as an "elected official" to make money."

This whole quitting talking point is as weak as watered down coffee allen. The reason why it is weak is because it doesn't make any sense. Calling Palin a quitter because she didn't stay on as Governor and went bankrupt is lame. That is like criticizing a person who decided to throw away a live hand grenade rather then hold on to it and let it explode in his or her hand. Anybody in their "right mind" would have done the same thing Palin did. I know I would have. The frivolous ethic violations were designed to bankrupt Palin. Calling her a quitter is merely plan B, because plan A failed.

p allen "The facts are, Palin is indeed a quitter and an intellectual light-weight. Yet she's not so dumb when it comes to using her popularity to make a dollar."

blah blah blah allen. Don't play me stupid. You know full well that if you was Palin, you wouldn't have stayed on a governor and gone bankrupt over it knowing that you had an option to pay off your legal debts and make some money.

Nah, making money is only bad when a conservative makes it Sojourerlove. Remember how liberals had ad cow when it was reported how much Rush Limbaugh's new contract was. Andrea like other libs in teh media are trying everything possible to make something stick on Palin, and they have yet to find one.

Nobody is labeling Mr.O a quitter for quitting The Illinois Senate breaking a campaign promise just shy of 5 months after taking that office.

Since Obama is a liberal, the rules they apply to everybody else don't ever apply to them. They would call Obama a self serving opportunist who used his Senate seat as a mere stepping stone to run for President.
