Posted on 03/26/2010 1:15:16 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
Amidst the heightened tensions and threats of security against members of Congress that has followed the passing of health care, some pundits are targeting Sarah Palin as an example of irresponsible fan flaming. Weve already addressed the mysterious power of her Facebook page, but it is the actually a graphic ad on her Facebook page for SarahPAC (featuring cross-hairs) that is raising the most ire, even from more traditional pundits, namely, The Views Elizabeth Hasselbeck

Someone tell Hannity to keep this nitwit off his programs. She's quickly entering the Megan McCain area, IMHO.
I doubt enough people watch Hasselbeck to even worry about what she says. And probably fewer watch Maddow.
Disappointed, I thought she was smarter than that. Maybe she needs a raise?
Elizabeth Hasselbeck has the intelligence of a potted plant. I never liked her, I always thought she was an imbecile, that statement that she said yesterday on The View proved it
If only her bulbous breast were brains! But alas, they are only decorative!
If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.

Any “conservative” who’d stick her head in the bedsheet at the View to be pelted by the leftist harpies on that channel doesn’t have the brain capacity to criticize anyone else.
She must be suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome” after too many years hanging around with Joy Baywhore, Babwa Walters and their crew.
Is traditional pundit how they usually refer to her?
Come on Hasselbeck....grow a pair
Elizabeth can’t get them all right. She basically stands alone on that panel, defending Conservatism day in and day out. She fell for the leftist spin here. There’s no doubt about it.
I honestly don’t know how she can sit there listening to Brayhar and Whoopsie. I’d be jumping that table to get at them. LOL, not really, but I wouldn’t stick around to listen to that noise.
Pundit? Has to be a typo.
Who the hell is Elizabeth Hasselbeck and why should I give one hoot in hell what she thinks about anything?
Folks, good grief. The woman counters the spin from the left over there all the time. So she blew this one, at least we have a voice there.
I’m not going to trash her for making this mistake. She was obviously wrong, but she’s there countering those mind numbed robots day after day.
Elizabeth gives a box a rocks a run for its money

July 20, 2009 - when speaking bout Health Care Reform
"Suddenly Emanuel grabbed his steak knife and, as those who were there remember it, shouted out the name of another enemy, lifted the knife, then brought it down with full force into the table.
''Dead!'' he screamed."
As reported by Gawker about Rahm Emanuel during a 1993 Democrat Fundraiser.
That said, though, the only way we're going to win this war (and that's precisely what it is) is if we refuse to accept PC nonsense. No matter how intimidated we might feel, whether at school, work, or in social settings, we must refuse to cooperate with their insane agenda.
It’s disgusting how so many so-called conservatives are saying, America is over. Just bend over, drop your drawers and enjoy it.
You and I both know that’s not the FR way.
I was shocked when I learned she was a graduate of Boston College! Shocked!
That used to be a hard school to get into, and then graduate! What the heck happened.
The reason they have her on that show is because she is defenseless, utterly defenseless in the battle of wits. Let’s see them try the same nonsense with Michelle Malkin, who would run circles around those bimbos.
And that is all the left needs to keep this completely bogus non-story going.
1)Create fake controversy about conservatives/Republicans
2)Push controversy in media
3)Wait for a one or two deluded conservatives craving for spotlight to agree with liberal talking point
4)Use attention seeking conservative to continue pushing story
5)Rinse and repeat
John McCain actually filled this role many, many times.
Every political insider knows this entire “Republicans are dangerous and mean” whining was part of the overall strategy the Democrats devised for HCR. They knew it wasn’t popular, they knew the right would be furious, so they executed a strategy to try to make everyone that opposed HCR look like crazed nuts. The left knows the mainstream media will play along, and they know some conservative/Republican will inevitably show up and give them cover to continue the nonsense.
Guilt can not be established based on the evidence presented on this thread so far.
Well, she did cringe when admitting she agreed with Joy.
And those independant voters he has been bleeding are the the voters who pushed him over the top in the 2008 election. I do believe this very statement, along with the disastrous fiscal policies he is enacting, will continue to push this crucial voting block away from him for good. The indie voters are fiscal hawks and most of them detest social turmoil. No second term for him:)
Actually, that was kind of funny. Sad, but at the same time funny.
Sounds like “pundit”, or “runt”, or something.
Pundit? Has to be a typo.
I agree. Should have been “cundit”.
I don’t understand why anyone would have a problem with using crosshairs to oppose a politician, Democrat or Republican.
This isn't an isolated incident. She does this crap all the time. Case in point, just a few days ago...
Not once did she suggest that maybe, just maybe none of it happened.
She supports gay marriage. She made some comment last year about how it was the government's responsibility to help single mothers pay for daycare. It goes on and on.
Elisabeth Hasselback gives that show a patina of "balance", that is used to help ABC pretend that it's giving voice to the other side. If there was a smart conservative women on that show, she would DESTROY the leftists on that panel.
There are MILLIONS of smart conservative (and telegenic) women in this country. It makes you wonder why they decided on the intellectually vacant Hasselbeck.
Man! when we randomly cross here on FR it’s like we are twin brains with a different mother!
Maybe she should go on Survivor again
That means we’d either get along famously,
or hate each other
Unfortunately, she’s as dumb as a dead possum. But then again, that’s the only reason she’s the “conservative” voice on The View.
She has a degree in fashion design, not economics. Just saying. Prior to securing a place on the View set with the other hags, she was a game show contestant. This isn't the "stuff" of great conservative thinkers.
Rule 308 is the final rule to resort to in
a parliamentary situation.
But the left miscalculated this time....they didn’t count on us tuning out the media in massive numbers. We’re not buying what the media is selling anymore and are simply watching it’s spectacular implosion.
Well, I find it “despicable” that the Left continues to call the Tea Party movement patriots ‘teabaggers’.
Whereas Sarah is decorative AND functional!
Let them keep it up...the pot will be boiling over by NOVEMBER...people are tired of being called racist all the time..that all they have ...
What gets me is the blatant lying denial of what’s actually in the law.
They think they’re going to get away with it when we can easily pull up the actual text of the law.
In an unrelated story, Whoopie Goldgerg declares Target stores dangerous and inflamatory.
That’s a reasoned come-back. That patina of support you mention isn’t limited to her either.
O’Reilly and others do it too. And there were plenty of Republicans apologizing for what hadn’t taken place the other day. It’s demoralizing to see them assume that it did take place.
It’s that patina of support premise, that leads me to dislike Bill Crystal and other media darlings adored by the left, for this very reason. They diffuse solid Conservative thought, so much so that the concise Conservative voice has disappeared from the talking head shows.
If Hassleback is to be taken to task, your method of doing it is much more reasoned than addressing this one issue. If she misses the mark consistently, then it’s not a good idea for her to sit there. Still, you know damn well they won’t put a fully capable voice on that program. They couldn’t deal with it.
Thanks for the comments.
If true, Lizzie is an idiot.
When did this kind of language become acceptable on the news channels?
Might as well say, Oh buggers, and not bleep it out.
Note to self: Don’t let MrB know where you are travelling...why risk ruining a good thing.
Give me a new (short-lived) tag line with a 1980’s advert reference.
