“Sarah Palin: It’s unflippingbelievable that MSNBC thinks your kids don’t belong to you”

How can anyone not agree with Melissa Harris-Perry’s reasonable, common-sense discussion of childhood collectivism? I mean, it takes a freaking village people, and unless you’ve lived the life of a shut in, never traversing government roads or crossing government bridges, you didn’t make that baby alone.

Making Ms Palin’s phony outrage so déclassé.

Man, we sure did dodge a bullet with this crazy wolf-killer, didn’t we?

I guess we have some of the big, successful right wing blogs to thank for having the courage — and it couldn’t have been easy for them, either, marshaling such dogged determination to stand up to the Hobbity nutcases and constitutonal true believers who have so cheapened the erstwhile gentlemen’s sport of national party politics —  to help the left demonize and diminish Governor Palin and her populist cult, clearing the way for real politicians with polish and gravitas, like, eg., Mitt Romney.

If you’re going to lose big, at least do it with someone who doesn’t embarrass you.  Which, now that I think about it, may as well be the GOP motto.

  1. How much do you think it pisses them off that she refuses to go away? It’s gotta suck, after all the work they did to cut her down, to have her putting their spinelessness in sharp relief month after month.

  2. rent free

    At some point today a former half-term governor of Alaska will have some opinions about Thatcher, but we can ignore that.

  3. I may have to revise my opinion of Palin if she really believes something utterly believable can’t be believed about MSNBC and its hostettes.

    Stupid snowbilly. Harrumph

  4. Did this Miss Harris-Perry write that great tome “How To Be A Slave For Dummies“?

  5. But, but, but…teh gay marriageings!

  6. Has anybody pointed out yet that she’s got it exactly ass-backwards, insofar as the public schools are concerned? It’s because education belongs to the community that the public schools have failed. The proof of that is found in the parents who take ownership of their children’s education.

  7. You didn’t give birth to that!

  8. Helen: Everyone’s (in charge of your kids).
    Dash: Which is another way of saying no one is.

    When an elementary age cartoon character understands something and you don’t, Ms. Harris-Perry, I think it’s time to re-evaluate yourself.

    utterly believable

    You mean like remembering all the way back to ’96 and HRC’s It Takes a Village (to raise a child)?

    We’re gonna need better leadership than this. Do any conservative leaders actually a) know the enemy b) have a memory for events longer ago than Sweeps Week?

    To quote “the Sicilian”: Inconceivable!

  10. That and it’s My Socialist National Broadcasting Corporation.

    Also, since a Palin thread inevitably devolves into furious small-minded misogynistic fear and bigotry, I thought some tongue-in-cheek criticism might be in order.

    The real shame is that it ought to be unflippingbelievable when it isn’t.

    And while this kerfuffle will probably work the hobbits up into a fit of Visgothic huffery, Karl Rove will, all to predictably, start focus grouping the Republican plan for responsible, affordable, less intrusive shared family-community parenting, with a slight emphasis on the family portion of family-community, but not so much so as to expose pragmatic republicans like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie to ridicule in the elite media.

  11. so Sarah is saying that your kids are your kids?

    She’s carving out some pretty controversial ground there but if she thinks she can defend it I support her 100%.

  12. I don’t have kids, but is it true that the Village People really offer to help raise your kids? I find that hard to believe. Now KC and the Sunshine band I could believe. But the Village People? Naaaah.

  13. This plus the puff piece on Chelsea, leads me to believe that the State Media is already beginning to campaign for Hillary as pres. in 2016.

    It’s one of the few ways that their leftist putsch can continue.

    This Harris person is a tribalist, she votes for a king because she’s too weak and too lazy to take responsibility for herself on most matters.

    This is the appeal of Leftism as practiced by Democrats to Blacks.

    Tribalism also is a known gov’t system that openly rewards cronies and sycophants and punishes those who aren’t. (see Chicago Machine or Zimbabwe)

    Another feature of Tribalism is the idea that everything is shared. It’s marxism/communism writ small.

    And the Republicans think they can win over Hispanic (another known group that leans to tribalism) by pandering to their desires? (which also happen to be inimical to the desires and needs of their base).

    The Democrats won’t have to change the voting laws by 2016 to continue their rule.

  14. I’m not sure the Village People offered to help personally, but they did make a point about how much a “young man” would find “it’s fun to stay at the YMCA.” That’s pretty community-oriented, innit?

  15. Given what a dripping wet sack of shit McCain is, what are the odds that Palin would have made him something other than a worthless president?

    Zero, but one can always hope that he’ll give a long speech in cold, nasty weather at his inauguration and …

  17. If Parliament helps raise your kids they’ll probably grow up kind of funky.

  18. so can the community tell you to have an abortion?

  19. Pingback: Sharp as a Marble - This is why I own guns

  20. Actually, there is a grain of truth to what the woman says, but as with most proggs, it’s twisted, corrupted and upside down.

    To try and illustrate what I mean, when I was in grade school, the principal had a thick hunk of wood prominently displayed on his wall that was known as “the paddle”. Our principal drilled holes in his to cut wind resistance and encourage terminal velocity on it’s way to the wayward child’s ass. Invariably, the kid would pray dad doesn’t hear about it, else he’ll get another drubbing when he does.

    When I was a bit younger, children knew early that acting up in public was a poor play, ‘cuz if the parental unit wasn’t nearby, the most nearby adult was pretty certain to swat your rump and drag you by the ear in search of your parent, who would then thank the stranger, and take up the disciplining of your character with a embarrassment fueled vigor.

    Now that people like Melissa Harris-Perry have done away with all that disciplining, and made it nigh impossible to teach or parent the little barbarians, they drug’em up and try to nationalize’em.

    Typical progg ploy, declare a problem where none exists, and then mandate a solution that causes five new problems that need more solutions. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

    SSM anyone?

  21. Our principal drilled holes in his to cut wind resistance and encourage terminal velocity on it’s way to the wayward child’s ass.

    Known in Irish as a “shillelagh” (shi-LAY-lee).

  22. there is a grain of truth to what the woman says

    The other part is where adults hide their naughty behavior behind closed doors, so that they can at least appear to set a good example for the kidses.

  23. Every time the village idiot thinks they can do my job for me, I just scratch my head and walk away.

  24. no no no we need to celebrate our naughty behavior so as to demystify it

    then no one would know the difference between naughty and nice and we could live naturally unashamed

    like beasts in the field

  25. I’m not sure the Village People offered to help personally, but they did make a point about how much a “young man” would find “it’s fun to stay at the YMCA.”

    CHRISTIANISTS! THEOCRATS!

  26. When your couples average 1 kid or less, you need to poach other people’s children to keep the Progressive Enlightenment on track.

  27. Palin rocks.

    Always has, always will.

  28. I’m touched. Obama is concerned that the GOP filibuster will say to the nation that Republicans don’t care about the opinions of the people.

    After he and his party rammed through ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank.

    Fuck every last one of these douches.

  29. Is it okay now to say I hate Obama and all his statist sycophants?

    No? Too bad.

  30. baracky be channeling harrisperry with the “our children”

  31. Is it okay now to say I hate Obama and all his statist sycophants?

    It’s not OK to say that it’s time to shoot Obama and all his statist sycophants. So don’t say that.

    Palin rocks.

    Always has, always will.

    Well she’d have “rocked” a lot harder if she had supported McCain’s opponent in the primary, and helped send the “maverick” back to private citizen status.

  33. While Palin’s support for McCain grates, there was no way J.D. Hayworth was going to beat him. Let’s not forget that he got trounced as a 6 term incumbent in his previous election.

  34. Obama is concerned that the GOP filibuster will say to the nation that Republicans don’t care about the opinions of the people.

    Translation: Republicans are not people.

    Related: reasonable people support reasonable gun control measures, therefore this radical change to gun control law would pass if put to a popular vote, but the Republicans (who are all kneepad-enslaved to the firearms industry) keep thwarting the willathepeepul.

  35. Lets vote on all of the Bill of Rights! We live in a democracy, after all.

  36. I need to borrow some extra kids to pull weeds and rake up the beauty bark around my flower beds.

  37. You can see the result of letting the “village” raise your children on the South Side of Chicago.

  38. Damn straight, SBP. When everyone is responsible, no one is responsible.
