WTF/WTH Wednesdays – Sarah Palin

I know I should not give Sarah Palin the time of day but there is just no end to her hypocrisy!!

In the latest round of “As Palin Turns”, Sarah fresh off of asking for President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel’s resignation for using the word “Retard” when he was speaking to a group of Democrats he disagreed with. As some of you may already know Sarah Palin’s youngest son Trig suffers from Down Syndrome, so now she is the “Spokesperson” for special needs children. I actually applaud Sarah Palin for standing up for this cause, after some research I discovered that there is legislation in Congress looking to remove the word from being used in any legislative documents. So good for you Sarah Palin for being active in such a cause.

So that was the good, here is the bad….

While Mrs. Palin was speaking from her high horse for special needs children she completely missed the boat on fellow Conservative Rush Limbaugh’s tirade on the word ‘Retard’:

If you missed it folks here is a snippet of Rush’s comments:
“Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards,” Limbaugh said on the show. “I mean these people, these liberal activists are kooks.

“They are loony tunes. And I’m not going to apologize for it, I’m just quoting Emanuel. It’s in the news,”

In my opinion Rush is just as guilty as Rahm; he is clearly stating that Liberals are retards. So how did Palin respond to Rush’s remarks? She basically gave him a pass, never asked for his resignation or apology.

She did release a statement thru her spokeswoman: “Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name calling at the expense of others is disrespectful.” Ok, so Palin lashes out at Rahm on her own calling for his resignation but when Big Bad Rush says something she uses her spokeswoman to relay a message to Rush???


WTF Sarah Palin!!!

Ms ‘Going Rogue’ punked out, here was a chance for Sarah Palin to really distinguish herself as a force to be reckon with in the Republican Party and she backed down. So much for being that tough “Hockey Mom”!

Just about 2 weeks has passed since the Rahm and Rush mess and now the tv show “Family Guy” decided to take a shot at Palin. In the episode Chris is smitten with a girl who has Down syndrome. Characters in the show mock the girl. Later, when asked about her parents, she says, “My mom’s the former governor of Alaska.”

So how would Sarah handle this incident? Keep in mind that Palin works for FOX News Corp and “Family Guy” is a Fox show! Like the punk that she is Palin decided she could be a little more stern and call the creators of “Family Guy” “cruel, cold-hearted people”. Since Seth Macfarlane is not the voice of Conservatives I guess she felt she could take him on. Anyway, not once did she challenge Rupert Murdoch (Owner of FOX) to take the show off the air.

In true Palin fashion (attention whore) she made an appearance on Bill O’Reillly’s show (FOX NEWS Show). Bill asked about the Rush incident and the perception that she took it easy on Rush; Palin responded by saying that Rush’s use of the word “Retard” was satire and that we just need to stop the name calling all together.

I have to say it again Sarah Palin, WTF!!!!

Stop the hypocrisy, its time for you to come clean Palin. Just let everyone know that you are not really in this for the people. You are all about yourself; even on the campaign trail in 2008 it was always about you! Everything you do is a calculated move that will help the Palin Express.

I don’t see how anyone with any sense would ever look at Sarah Palin as presidential material… Oh wait, that’s right recent polls show that basically no one wants that old “Golly Bum” windbag as president!! 71% of people polled thought Palin wasn’t qualified to be president;

Sarah Palin in my opinion you took a huge step back with all of this nonsense, she had an opportunity to really show the “Going Rogue” Palin portrayed in her book. Instead she backed down to Rush and his big mouth; Palin could learn something from John McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain


At least she had the guts to call out the Tea Party Nation for their racist ways as Former Representative Tom Tancredo spoke about bringing back literacy test and “Birthers” continued to question the president’s citizenship. I look at Meghan McCain as a stronger individual than Palin will ever be!

For the record I am not a huge fan of Meghan McCain but I give her credit for standing up and trying to be a leader for young Republicans!


As always….
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!

Free Flowing – Nuclear Power (Keith Olbermann’s Ignorance)

And here I was thinking I would have nothing to write about today, thank you Ketih Olbermann!

I expect a lot more from Keith Olbermann, his irresponsible commentary on nuclear energy is along the same lines as the lousy reporting by Fox News or Rush Limbaugh.


Mr. Olbermann sir… No offense, you’re ignorant (lacking knowledge)!!

How is it that it’s been 30 years since a nuclear reactor has been built in the U.S.? Hmmm… Maybe because we have ignorant people like Keith Olbermann passing himself as a knowledgable commentators.

Tonight on Keith Olbermann’s show ‘Countdown’ he discussed President Obama’s announcement for investing in nuclear energy, with $8 Billion dollars in loan guarantees to help build a nuclear power plant in Georgia. Before I get started on Olbermann allow me to give a brief background on Nuclear Energy and its relation to Liberals in the United States. For years Liberals have been against the use of nuclear energy and their concerns in the past were valid. Their concerns included effects to the environment, safety, and disposal of the spent nuclear rods used to produce the energy. Then accidents at Three Mile Island (1979) and Chernobyl (1986) halted the nuclear energy movement in the U.S. Unfortunately Liberals have been extremely slow in keeping up and understanding how technology and regulations have protected the enviroment as well as improved safety and disposal of nuclear waste.

Back to Olbermann….

Olbermann’s states, “President Obama promised a new generation of safe/clean nuclear power plants in this country. Key words safe and clean third word possible???”.

Staying true to his liberal form Keith Olbermann took exception to this announcement by citing nuclear accidents that occurred at Three Mile Island (1979) and Chernobyl (Russia 1986) and the controversy of storing spent nuclear rods. In his commentary Olbermann continuously referred to these 2 accidents as if they happened just yesterday. He even stooped as low as to use the Simpsons to question Nuclear Energy, SERIOUSLY?!?!?! On any given night Olbermann will cite the fear tactics used by Fmr President Bush and his administration to scare the public into supporting their stance on Terrorism. So with great hypocrisy Olbermann using scare tactics failed to mention some key facts about studies and investigations done concerning the events surrounding Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.

Three Mile Island (TMI):
From 1981 to 2002, numerous studies examining the effects of the TMI accident found no injuries, deaths or discernible health effects from the small amount of radiation released. If anything Three Mile Island proved the effectiveness of safety measures at a nuclear facility built and regulated in the United States. Yes radiation was released in the atmosphere due to the accident but it was minimal; studies of the soil also showed no significant amounts of radiation were ever found. Of course if Olbermann had mentioned this it might have taken away from his argument.


Without a doubt Chernobyl is the worse nuclear power plant disaster in the history of nuclear energy, there is no denying the devastation caused by the accident. So Olbermann has the right to mention this accident, but what he failed to discuss were the failures by the operators and the failure of proper regulations in Russia that could have prevented or at minimized the accident. For example, the protection shelter for the reactor at Chernobyl could be compared to a tool shed in your background that was purchased from Home Depot! An accident like this would never happen in the United States as a Chernobyl style plant would never be built-in the U.S


As for those spent nuclear rods, if Mr Olbermann did his research he might have mentioned that France and other nations with nuclear power plants recycle spent nuclear rods to reduce waste and need for storage. If the U.S. adopted such technology the need to dispose the nuclear waste (Yucca Mountain) would decrease drastically.

Mr. Olbermann also failed to mention that 80% of the energy produced by France is produced by Nuclear Energy. Meanwhile the 80% of the energy produced in the U.S. is produced by dirty Coal Burning plants that release CO2 in our environment. By the way there is no such thing ‘Clean Coal’!

So to answer your question Mr Olbermann about nuclear energy being safe; YES. You can run a safe nuclear power plant, it has been proven in France and China. So why would it be so hard to believe that a nation like the United States could not do the same.

To backup his argument about safety Olbermann enlisted the help of Jeffery Lewis, Director of the Nuclear Strategy and Nonproliferation Initiative at the New American Foundation. Mr Lewis went on to provide a weak argument that nuclear power plants are slighty safer than 30 years ago but that they will never be completely safe. Mr Lewis then made a curious statement, that the risk of preventing an accident is not ZERO!

Really Mr Lewis???? I dare you or anyone to find me a Coal Burning Plant that has zero risk of accidents that could cause harm to the envirnoment or people. As a matter of fact when a coal plant runs without any issues that plant is causing harm to the envirnoment everyday it is running. It’s real simple Mr Lewis and Mr Olbermann; when you burn coal you release CO2 to the atmosphere,which has been linked to Global Warming. As a card-carrying Liberal Mr Olbermann I am pretty sure you believe in Global Warming aka Climate Change.

What was it again that cause Climate Change…. Oh yeah CO2 keeping the heat trapped and warming the planet, hmmmm!!!

Lets see if I can simplify this for you, nuclear energy is our best alternative to provide enough clean energy to power this nation. Many will say, “What about renewable energy like Wind, and Solar?” Yes, wind and solar is clean energy, but the problem with wind and solar is that the wind is not always blowing and the technology to store solar energy is not up to par to handle our needs. Wind and Solar energy cannot sustain the Base Load power need for our society. Look at it this way; when you turn on the light switch in your house or apartment the lights come on. The power used to ensure we have electricity to turn on our lights on is known as Base Load. Of course this all flies out the window if you don’t pay your electric bill, HA!!

I know I know, I get a little bit worked up over this stuff, but if I am going to tweet or blog my displeasure with Republicans and/or call Glenn Beck a nutbag. Then I have to do the same with Democrats and their commentators.

With that said Mr Olbermann you are Bobby Broadway’s Worst Person……

As always….
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
