Morning Joe on defense, Sarah Palin on Offense...

The rea­son why I don’t live­blog Morn­ing Joe any­more is stuff like this.

Repub­li­can Joe Scar­bor­ough pur­ported to have his fin­ger on the pulse of Repub­li­cans across the coun­try today when he declared that they were uni­formly reject­ing Sarah Palin and her “hard, hard, hard right” con­ser­v­a­tive views.

Con­ser­v­a­tives for Palin elaborates:

The Demo­c­ra­tic con­trolled Sen­ate Finance Com­mit­tee didn’t seem to think the “death pan­els” were so ridicu­lous when they removed the pro­vi­sion from the Sen­ate ver­sion of the health care bill.

Is there an agenda here?

Joe Scar­bor­ough ignored Gov­er­nor Palin’s metic­u­lously cited state­ments and thought­ful argu­ments, and went directly to the same false stereo­types that are fre­quently repeated on lib­eral blogs…

Scarborough’s agenda became clear when he said, “She ain’t going to burn up Iowa any­more”. He would like to present him­self and his polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy as the cor­rect alter­na­tive to “extreme right wingers” like Sarah Palin.

Well lets see if his book is the alter­nate opin­ion based on his Ama­zon Sales rank today

Ama​zon​.com Sales Rank: #28,738 in Books

That’s after two months, how about look­ing at that inciter of peo­ple Mark Levin he likes Palin?

Ama​zon​.com Sales Rank: #31 in Books

That’s after 5 months, how about Dick Mor­ris who I’m not a big fan of myself:

Ama​zon​.com Sales Rank: #47 in Books

Dick’s book came out two weeks after Joe, How about Michelle?

Ama​zon​.com Sales Rank: #14 in Books

Her book is a month old, and finally how about Glenn Beck, he must be tank­ing with all those boy­cotts right?

Ama​zon​.com Sales Rank: #9 in Books

That one came out within 3 days of your book didn’t it Joe?

Well it’s not as if she can stay on offense against this admin­is­tra­tion since the peo­ple don’t sup­port her, oh wait:

For years, states rich with an abun­dance of oil and nat­ural gas have been beg­ging Wash­ing­ton, DC politi­cians for the right to develop their own nat­ural resources on fed­eral lands and off shore. Such devel­op­ment would mean good pay­ing jobs here in the United States (with health ben­e­fits) and the result­ing roy­al­ties and taxes would pro­vide money for fed­eral cof­fers that would poten­tially off-​set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the fed­eral debt and deficits, or even help fund a tril­lion dol­lar health care plan if one were so inclined to sup­port such a plan.

So why is it that dur­ing these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is pre­pared to send more than two bil­lion of your hard-​earned tax dol­lars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-​owned oil com­pany, Petro­bras, can drill off shore and cre­ate jobs devel­op­ing its own resources? That’s all Amer­i­cans want; but such ratio­nal energy devel­op­ment has been con­tin­u­ally thwarted by rabid envi­ron­men­tal­ists, face­less bureau­crats and a seem­ingly end­less parade of law­suits aimed at shut­ting down new energy projects.

I won­der if this is going to get cov­er­age Joe? Likely a lot more than your book.

Update: Joe I hate to tell you this, you have the symp­toms of Sullivan’s Syn­drome. Seek help now

Update 2: I’ve added some links to cov­er­age of Palin’s lat­est face­book and will con­tinue to do so as the day goes on.

Update: 3 Marx doesn’t com­pete too well either

The reason why I don’t liveblog Morning Joe anymore is stuff like this.

Republican Joe Scarborough purported to have his finger on the pulse of Republicans across the country today when he declared that they were uniformly rejecting Sarah Palin and her “hard, hard, hard right” conservative views.

Conservatives for Palin elaborates:

The Democratic controlled Senate Finance Committee didn’t seem to think the “death panels” were so ridiculous when they removed the provision from the Senate version of the health care bill.

Is there an agenda here?

Joe Scarborough ignored Governor Palin’s meticulously cited statements and thoughtful arguments, and went directly to the same false stereotypes that are frequently repeated on liberal blogs…

Scarborough’s agenda became clear when he said, “She ain’t going to burn up Iowa anymore”. He would like to present himself and his political philosophy as the correct alternative to “extreme right wingers” like Sarah Palin.

Well lets see if his book is the alternate opinion based on his Amazon Sales rank today

Amazon.com Sales Rank: #28,738 in Books

That’s after two months, how about looking at that inciter of people Mark Levin he likes Palin?

Amazon.com Sales Rank: #31 in Books

That’s after 5 months, how about Dick Morris who I’m not a big fan of myself:

Well it’s not as if she can stay on offense against this administration since the people don’t support her, oh wait:

For years, states rich with an abundance of oil and natural gas have been begging Washington, DC politicians for the right to develop their own natural resources on federal lands and off shore. Such development would mean good paying jobs here in the United States (with health benefits) and the resulting royalties and taxes would provide money for federal coffers that would potentially off-set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the federal debt and deficits, or even help fund a trillion dollar health care plan if one were so inclined to support such a plan.

So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That’s all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.

I wonder if this is going to get coverage Joe? Likely a lot more than your book.

Update: Joe I hate to tell you this, you have the symptoms of Sullivan’s Syndrome. Seek help now

Update 2: I’ve added some links to coverage of Palin’s latest facebook and will continue to do so as the day goes on.

Update: 3 Marx doesn’t compete too well either
