Joe Scarborough For Establishment Republican Party Presidential Candidate 2016

Joe Scarborough For the rump Republican Party Presidential Candidate 2016-why not and perhaps the ticket could be Scarborough/Christie or Scarborough/Hunstman.

Scarborough excoriates the conservative wing of the current GOP who are gathering at CPAC. Their faults include being "sick and insular" by excluding Chris Christie and, most especially, sticking to their principles. Scarborough really struggles to understand the principles thing, as to him all that matters is winning apparently. 

The first Republicans who created the party as an anti-slavery vehicle, and who lost their first presidential election, apparently didn't worry about the 'winning" thing otherwise they wouldn't have taken on the seemingly impossible task of creating a new party.

However, things have changed for Establishment Republicans it seems and the priority, above all else, is getting elected. Not only being elected, but utterly destroying ones opponent in the process "so that their own dog won't look them in the eye". The latter is not to hard a task by the way, as most dogs will avert their gaze whether their owner wins or loses-being loyal above all else.

Scarborough is just one more Rockefeller Republican who is adding fuel to the fire which is, bit by bit, and seemingly inexorably, leading to a full split in the Republican ranks. He calls CPAC "a turning point"
and it may be so, more than he thinks, and he may be the fulcrum for the tipping point rather than the conservatives whom he so excoriates.

Here's another log added  to the fire today.

"House majority leader Eric Cantor is increasingly frustrated with a group of House Republicans who are working against the leadership, and he’s not afraid of voicing his dismay.
In a closed-door conference meeting on Wednesday, Cantor told one GOP member that if they blocked the Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) from coming to the floor, they’d cause “civil war” in the ranks."

The split is obvious and, unless there is a genuine conservative seen to be the nominee as election year approaches, it will be irreparable-perhaps as soon as the  mid-terms according to Prof. Codavilla. CPAC will be interesting particularly if indications of how deep the split is emerge, and if someone grasps the nettle of openly declaring it to be irreparable and takes leadership of a New Party.

If another in the mould of Dole/McCain/Romney is forced on the rank and file in 2016, then it might as well be self declared RINO Scarborough. He would exemplify why the split has occurred, and with him as candidate it can never be healed. A genuine conservative party in 2016 would most likely lose, but victory is not impossible (the rump Republican party would struggle to do as well as Taft in 1912) but if principles are held to, victory will come, perhaps sooner than expected.


Here's Scarborough's take on political ethics on the Morning Joe program:


“Apparently these days being a Republican is not about winning,” host Joe Scarborough remarked. “Maybe I should call myself a Republican In Name Only because do you know what I like to do? I like to win. I like to destroy my political opponents.”

Leftist "Wonkette" Site Has Explosion Of Racist Comments About McConnell's Wife And Michelle Malkin

The leftist "satire" i.e. filth site ran a piece about a leftist Superpac in Kentucky which Tweeted a racists comment about Senator Mitch McConnell's Chinese wife  
AT THIS LINK. Just some of the filth and racism that followed is,sadly, illustrated below.

Instead of, as they did paragraphs further into the article  condemning the perpetrators, they instead started off by condemning the group for their political faults. In other words, play by the Alinsky playbook but don't get too stupid with it.


"In any political operation, there’s this thing called “message discipline.” Not only does it mean staying on the talking points (“It’s the Economy, stupid!”), but of course it also means Don’t hand your opponent a gift by saying something so incredibly stupid and offensive that it lends itself to a headline like “Liberal Super PAC Goes After Mitch McConnell’s ‘Chinese’ Wife.’” Which, unfortunately, is exactly the idiotic thing that an as-yet unnamed volunteer for Progress Kentucky did on February 14."

They conclude with this admonition to their readers which is of course utter catnip to them and which results in an explosion of racist stereotypical statements, and utter filth-dragging in Michelle Malkin with them too by asking for no "ping pong" ball comments-which if course follow straight away 


"Just to be clear: Progress Kentucky, you are appealing to racism and xenophobia, and making all liberals look bad in the process. Knock it off, please. Grow up and call him “Yertle,” OK?
Also, Wonkaderos: this is why we get so pissy about ping pong ball jokes in association with Michelle Malkin. If you feel that is oppressive, you are free to take that shit elsewhere."


The left is utter incapable of rational, humane discourse when it comes to any concept or person that is different from their utterly bigoted and, in these instances, utterly warped views. For the Wonkette site to admonish its readers to behave by any decent standards is the biggest bit of satire on the site.







                                    (This comment links at the Wonkette site to Michelle Malkin's condemnation of a previous Wonkette piece about her in a similar vein)  "This is
 hardly 
But Wonkette has now mainstreamed it. And I’m sick of it. Are you proud of yourselves? Do you get a bonus from Nick Denton for scraping the bottom of the barrel?

Redux;Academy Awards Are Celebration Of Distorted Leftist Values And Triumphs Over Traditional Values


I wrote the column below two years ago at the time of the Academy Awards. Nothing has changed sadly and won't until the opportunity for genuine change in November 2016.
**************************************************************


The kids are not all right.

Once again the denizens of Hollywood are using their unique propaganda tool, the Academy Awards, in the aid of their warped social philosophy.

It is a fair assumption, one only has to peruse the cover of  a gossip magazine,that a higher proportion of neurotics,drug users, out and out societal misfits, and the just plain mad who compose a proportion of the entertainment industry in numbers well  above the national average will be gathered together on awards night.

On top of their collective neuroses, and surely actors by their very profession are subject to various manifestations of eccentricity, they have, through the massive reach of their medium, enormous power, wealth and great influence on the average person.

Thus what just a few years ago would have been considered a gross perversion, if not illegal and generally not even possible, same sex couples adopting, or creating via the loving mechanics of a turkey baster, babies.

High profile entertainment industry types, can, through their wealth and media power, undertake actions which if a normal person attempted it they would be castigated or even arrested for breaking societies taboos. Over the years we have seen these structures of society attacked and then broken and then made commonplace by actors.

At one time, not too long ago for a couple, heterosexual that is, gays would have been unthinkable, to live together openly in a sexual relationship would have been impossible, especially if children were involved.

Then major "stars" started doing so, the radical communist Vanessa Redgrave springs to mind as an example.

Shock horror newspaper headlines followed, then the glossies started to make it "interesting' and shortly after it became "normal" irrespective of what example it set for society and the effect it would have on children of such relationships. 

Of course such unstable relationships composed of unstable people break up one after another with untold harm on the innocents who are caught up in such horrors.

That aspect of normal society undermined the next attack,Gay and lesbian same sex relationships adopting children hove into view. Again, the unthinkable becomes, via the wealth,"prestige", and power of entertainment types perfectly acceptable to society. 

Elton John and partner adopts, how is it possible for men of their age in the first place to adopt an infant? Cynthia Nixon's "fiancee' gives birth amongst recent examples.

There are no long term studies on how children who grow up in these unnatural parenting relationships adjust in society.What sort of difficulties to they encounter at school amongst their peers? Do the have trouble establishing an heterosexual relationship? 

What effect will this have on population trends amongst Western nations and if they decline what will be the economic effects and the social effects as more third world labor is needed to take up the slack?

Hollywood doesn't care-all the denizens care about is satisfying their ego's, carnal nature and their hedonism "Cocaine is God's way of telling you you have too much money" Robin Williams is quoted as saying, Lohan, Sheen-well the list of examples is endless. Now having children has become their latest status symbol. It started with the adopting out of Africa craze and now has spread to same sex couples.

There are no barriers to satisfying their needs for those in the entertainment industry. Same sex parenting a no no? The propaganda machine starts. The first foray was The Birdcage with lovable characters, then "The kids are all right" whose premise is " look we lesbian parent couples are not weird, we have all the "normal" family problems and squabbles just like everyone else so our parenting is "normal"-just like everyone else.

Society has accepted that same sex couples can and should they wish live in a relationship protected by law-it is called a civil union. Where the public has had the opportunity to vote on the matter, even in ultra-liberal California, they have rejected same sex "marriage." 

Perhaps same sex parenting should also be put to the popular will, which is after all society itself, because if same sex marriage is not acceptable then perhaps same sex parenting which has the potential to inflict much psychic damage, is too important to leave to the propaganda mill that will be on show at the Academy Awards.

The End? S&P 500 Breaks Through 1500 Barrier.Chart Shows Worse Crash Since 2008 Possible

I have added some insights from correspondents to the original article posted below.

Update; S&P500 down 1.83% through vital 1500 barrier. Slide commencing? Feb 25th.



"I hope they believe you, I have been saying it for months .. House of cards, thanks
. I pulled out / put the $ toward my mortgage, learned my lesson .. owe very little, banks, insurance companies in everyone's pocket .. few months all paid up .. drop the red tape

 I think events have moved further since you wrote them as the Fed seems to be moving to ,or rather there is an indication from them, of tightening and and end or diminution of the money printing/bond buying. China ditto, which has spooked the market and CNBC financial commentators advising the situation has now changed and best to get out of shares. If the major downturn comes the 1500 on the S&P500 will be the golden rule it seems-interesting times.
NB I don't think runaway inflation is possible nowadays with the Fed having major tightening mechanisms and the will to use them unlike previous examples in  history e.g. the German post WW1 experience, or even the Volker deflation."


The interesting aspect of all this is exactly what relevance charting has. Here we have a classic instance of a resistance point (this one now at 1500 on the S&P 500 index) being reached twice in the past with subsequent massive collapses. The usual line is "past performance is no guarantor of future performance".
However this is such a strong indicator it will be a major dis-creditor of chartism if it doesn't happen the third time in a row.NB If it does happen stock up on canned goods and bullets.

As the chart shows we are at a triple top, basically bumping up against resistance. A triple top is rare, and a 50/50 proposition unlike a head and shoulders formation which indicates weakness in the shoulders and no follow through with the head having broken above the first shoulder. 

If there is a breakout to the upside with of a triple top, which there very well could be with the Fed pumping QE3, stocks could explode exponentially which would indicate runaway inflation. Gold will benefit in this environment. 

Should stocks turn down and head for the 2008 low of 666, gold will sell off as fast as stocks as the markets will be forcing us to bite the bullet and will overwhelm the Fed's pump-priming tomfoolery which has artificially sustained used to this point. 
This will indicate the long-wave deflationary cycle has re-asserted itself and no amount of money printing will matter. This is a recipe or a result of war.

this presages the S&P will take out its 2008 low of 666 -- adjusted for inflation. If this happens it will be the bottom of the most vicious deflationary cycle in history and will cut the gold price in half if not more. No one will have any money and will have to liquidate metals to survive. The only thing of true value will be land on which one can survive while the barbarous hoards of city dwellers do what they must to survive.

*****************************************************************************************************************************

"The Market Oracle" Financial site is the go-to site 
AT THIS LINK for gold bugs and, as a necessary compliment to that to doom and gloomers par excellence.  

It makes fun reading for those not heavily invested in the share market and especially for those not influenced by commentators with a barrow to push.

That said there are times when one is brought up with a start with what is irrefutable evidence in the way of historical statistics. 

I have learned that as irrefutable as these statistics may be the lesson is that "past events do not necessarily predict future ones" and that is no matter how often in the past that past events actually did predict future ones.

Financial commentator Clive Maund  AT THIS LINK has an article up entitled  

What Will Happen to Gold and Silver Stocks if the Stock Market Tanks? 

which in one sentence basically encapsulates all the cautionary comments I made at the start of this post. 

Maund states that it is possible that not only will speculators who have been riding the stock market in search of income as the Fed has kept interest rates artificially low be hurt (i.e. Mom and Pop) but the bull market speculators will be "annihilated"

His twenty year Standard & Poors 500 index chart which shows a top at 1500 followed by a massive downturn happening twice before and our being-yes, at exactly the same spot is, frankly scary. Bloomberg updates the chart daily AT THIS LINK

He advises that there will be a high again at some point and looking at his chart it would seem that buying in (if you have any money left) around 600 would be rewarding. That is if the marauding mobs haven't done you in by then of course.





Well, we will see if history repeats for a third time. My reading of the charts looks like it takes up to a year from hitting the resistance level, to the start of the downturn. Lets hope this doesn't come to pass unless cleaning house, and the election of a female "common sense conservative" is the end result, in which case the bitter pill may have a sweet after-taste.

Transcript And Radio Interview; Brent Bozell Destroys Myth That The Tea Party Cost The GOP The Senate In 2012 With List Of Establishment Losers

On Breitbart in an article titled "BOZELL PUSHES BACK HARD AGAINST ROVE WAR ON TEA PARTY"
AT THIS LINK Brent Bozell, from Newsbusters, President of Media Research Center, Chairman "ForAmerica" and Nephew of William F. Buckley does indeed lay into the GOP Establishment. 

The, outstanding, full radio interview  2-5-13 on radio WMAL Washington  with Larry O'Connor co-host Brian Wilson is posted below.

In what is a brilliant analysis of the 2012 senate result Bozell shreds to pieces the myth that "the conservatives/ Tea Party cost the Republicans the senate". Here is a transcript worth keeping and disseminating whenever the Beltway and the left bring up that canard.

 "In 2012 we all heard ‘when, not if, the Republicans capture the senate.  They say its because of Akin in Missouri and Mourdock in Indiana that the Republican’s didn't win. Let’s look at the real record. Not this nonsense they are putting out.

Linda McMahon Connecticut-lost  
Kevin Wade Delaware-lost
Linda Lingle Hawaii-lost 
Scott Brown Massachusetts-lost 
Pete Hoekstra Michigan-lost 
Heather Wilson New Mexico-lost 
Tommy Thompson Wisconson-lost 
Denny Rehberg New Jersey-lost 
Joe Kyrillos-New Jersey-lost .

The only Republicans who won last year were three Tea Party conservatives and for those who point out Akin in Missouri he was opposed by Tea Party" (after he made his statement-including notably Sarah Palin)

Sarah Palin to speak at CPAC: Gay Site Absurdly Takes Out Exclusion On Her

First the report pn Sarah Palin attending CPAC again and then a violent reaction from Gay site "Towel;Road". But why, Sarah is well known to be Gay friendly and has the support of prominent Gays and  lesbians such as "HillBuzz". Towelroad readers seem to be taking the exclusion by CPAC out on Sarah which is manifest;y absurd.


Sarah Palin to speak at major conservative event


After former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, left her job as a contributor for Fox News, she said conservatives "can't just preach to the choir."
"I'm taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation," she said.
In one of her next high-profile appearances, however, Palin may be addressing one of the nation's most conservative annual events. The American Conservative Union announced today that Palin will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013 - the 40th annual conservative political action conference - to be held March 14-16 at National Harbor, just outside of Washington, D.C.
The three-day event will feature several prominent conservatives, from both inside and outside the beltway. Confirmed speakers include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; former Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.; former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich; NRA president David Keene; NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre; and several others. The ACU claims CPAC is the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the country.
The conference is best known for its annual GOP presidential nomination straw poll, which Mitt Romney won last year. Former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul won in 2010 and 2011.

  • First, we should be thrilled that GOProud aren't allowed in.
    Why? Because last time they were in attendance all they did was denigrate gay people. I'm not kidding. Check this delusional queen out; rambling about how much he doesn't like gay people, especially "stereotypical gay people", which is like the pot calling the kettle sparkling-pink-in-a-tutu.
    Oh, he also talks about how much he loves Sarah Palin, because she reminds him of his Mom.
    GOProud Parents - they love their children as much as Sarah Palin loves the liberal gay children of liberals from Liberalia.
    Which is to say not at all.
    She'll no doubt be an electrifying presence. She'll use every meaningless buzz-term that energizes the braindead plebes of the GOP.
    Curious - why call her Governor Palin? Why not "former Governor who quit two years early" Palin?

    Sarah Palin Posted This Photo Of Trig Let The"Immoral Minority" Haters And Pro-Abortionists Look At It With Decency And Humanity

    Really, there is nothing to add-the picture speaks for itself. But there are comments and they are deeply loving and affectionate at Sarah's Facebook page AT THIS LINK


    Krugman And Josh Marshall At TPM Just Don't Get It.For Conservatives It's Not All About Money; It's Still Ethics, Values, And Life



    Paul Krugman in reviewing the Republicans response to President Obama's State of the Union address chose to dissect what Marco Rubio said about the economy in his rebuttal. That would be expected of course coming from a leftist economist. What also would be expected, was Krugman's ludicrous all encompassing statement "he and his party are now committed to the belief that their pre-crisis doctrine was perfect" 

    The irony of his preceding comment that "OK, leave on one side the caricature of Obama, with the usual mirror-image fallacy " seems to have escaped him

    No, not all members of the GOP consider that the Bush administration's pre-crisis economics were perfect-far from it. It is ludicrous to state, as Krugman does in yet another blanket piece of nonsense, that " [given] another shot at power, they’ll test that thesis by giving the bankers a chance to do it all over again."


    These laughable, and frankly stereotypical notions,  show that Krugman is better as an economist in propounding theory, than he is as a polemicist. What can be said with impunity is that Krugman, and the left in general, miss the point in their wholesale characterization of conservatives in America.

    Yes, most certainly,  the economic aspect of government policy is a major consideration for conservatives. So also are a raft of other items including, immigration, the second amendment, foreign policy, especially concerning Israel, and states rights. 

    If we accept the "progressive' lefts concept of the GOP as including "the 1%" then that would mean that up to 99% of rank and file Republicans care for other things beside personal enrichment and ruining the economy by reckless banking techniques-if that is what the 1% are about in leftists fantasies.


    Josh Marshall at TPM repeats the same ludicrous straw man nonsense that everyone in the GOP, fat cats and "Tea Party types" alike will fight each other to the death over trivia. But all agree that the Bush administration did nothing wrong. 

    "Since neither the Tea Party types or the big donors and the campaign operatives working for them are thinking of repudiating a Republican administration that lost two wars and wrecked the economy, they are left to air their differences on issues no one besides campaign junkies cares about. The self-styled conservatives complain that Rove and his people say mean things about them; the moneybags wing is dedicated to recruiting candidates who will avoid gaffes."

    This is of course patent nonsense, and Tea Party voices have been loud and clear that never again will a Romney or an Establishment type candidate be forced on them, and never again will the GOP go back to big spending governments.

    But, leaving aside the simple minded blanketing of all Republicans as being blind to the Bush administrations economic failings, it is preposterous to state that the differences between the establishment and the Tea Party are "issues no one besides campaign junkies cares about". Conservatives care about the very real problems I outlined above. They Care deeply about ethics and morality in government, and they care deeply about the sanctity of human life. 

    What TPM, Krugman and the left decided was not worth commenting on ( the idiot left, which includes the MSM thought that Rubio's water bottle was a matter of much import) was one of the concluding statements of Rubio's address which marks the core of conservative thought. 

    "And the truth is every problem can’t be solved by government. Many are caused by the moral breakdown in our society. And the answers to those challenges lie primarily in our families and our faiths, not our politicians."

    If there is a true conservative candidate, e.g. Sarah Palin or someone with her ideals in 2016, it will be these aspects, as well as an economy different from the Bush and Obama administrations, which will be of import to "more than just political junkies". These are the heart and soul of conservatism no matter which candidate espouses them in 2016. 

    That they escape the ken of leftists, except when they deride them, is no accident.





    Jeb Bush "I Would Govern Like LBJ As President" Because LBJ's Gulf Of Tonkin War Hoax Reminds Of Weapons Mass Destruction Ditto?

    Breitbart has an article up at this link quoting Jeb Bush as saying "

    The original report of Jeb Bush's speech is reproduced below from C4P as it appeared in the Breitbart report from the Miami Herald

    The comments at Breitbart are in the main massively unfavorable, here is a taste;


    1.  Arguably, the worst president of the 20th century. Good to know you've raised the bar.
    2.  Over 58,000 men and women died because of LBJ. Millions of people are on welfare because of his war on poverty. Even though he may have had a knack for cajoling people to get what he wanted, for any Republican to use the man in anyway favorably is a disgrace."
    3.  Over 1 million Vietnamese also died. not to mention the south Korean troops and the Australian troops. the 2 million or more Cambodians.
    4.  I remember LBJ very well, he sent me off to war, then he quit on us and when I got home from that war Nixon was President. Ho Chi Minh was 10 times the leader LBJ ever thought of being, he never quit on his people like our leaders have done.
    5.  If only Reagan had picked Kemp instead of Bush...

    these are just a few of many suchlike, especially from those who lived through the Johnson era and its aftermath. Which aftermath brought, amongst many other disasters, Nixon/Watergate/a bloated welfare state/ governments using lies to go to war.

    Perhaps it was this last Johnson effort, using the 
    Gulf of Tonkin incident to falsely commit America to a disastrous, murderous war which is so reminiscent of "weapons of mass destruction" from the Bush/Powell administration that makes Jeb nostalgic for LBJ.

    Jeb Bush does not say he wants to govern like LBJ in respect of his social and economic programs, but in the manner in which he got his legislation, for better or worth, with truth and lies, through Congress. The general consensus amongst commentators is "no thanks". 

    The last thing America wants is a strong arm president who will do anything to get his way. Surely the end result of the last such president is enough to make people run a mile from the concept.

    And running they are. At Breitbart, at least, the response is that Jeb has well and truly shot himself in the foot, is a creature of Karl Rove and if the Establishment succeeds in foisting him on them as the 2016 candidate they will stay at home in droves or vote for/create a third party.


    "Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president.

    According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and 
    energy policy.
    Bush did not address Johnson's Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won." 
    Instead, he was referencing Johnson's mastery of the so-called sausage-making process in Congress.  
    He vowed to approach the presidency as "master of the Senate," as biographer Robert Caro described Johnson.  “He went and he cajoled, he begged, he threatened, he loved, he hugged, he did what leaders do, which is they personally get engaged to make something happen,’’ Bush said of Johnson. Bush cited Caro's latest book about Johnson, The Passage of Power, which covers the first part of Johnson's presidency.
    The wheeling and dealing Johnson loved and relished is what will be needed to pass bills such as immigration regulations. That process is also how government gets expanded and cronyism thrives, as Peter Schweizer's nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute and directer Stephen K. Bannon documented in "Boomtown." 
    Bush, who has a book on comprehensive immigration reform due out next month, said it was "un-American" to have illegal immigrants living in fear of exposure. “To me — and I’m 
    here at this great Catholic institution and this is what my church teaches me — it is completely un-American to require people living in the shadows," he declared. "

    Five Things I Am Giving Up For Lent-Including Maureen Dowd-(And I'm Not Even a Catholic)

    As much as it pains me-and self-discipline is not a major major for me I must admit, I will make the sacrifice and give up the following five things for forty days-and I am not even a Catholic. And if I were I'd only have to give up one thing ( I think I have that right). 

    So it is entirely on a voluntary-makes you a better person- (hopefully) mission that I am foregoing the following.

    1.Reading leftist blogs especially Politico/Little Green Footballs and especially Daily Kos (I feel better already)

    2.Reading leftist newspapers especially the various "Posts" (N.Y./L.A.)

    3. Reading anything from Palin Derangement Syndrome sites/people like "Immoral Minority"

    4. Responding to childish idiots who comment on my blogs

    5.Looking at the smug face of Maureen Dowd (see #2)

    Further suggestions welcome (not fromleftists of course) -although I can only carry a certain burden through such a long time-but if the task involves a far left item I will take it on





    Washington Post Sensational Report "Palin To Join 'The Apprentice' Due; As Trump Admits To Palin Dialogue

    Captured below is the indisputable evidence, from his own mouth that, as recently as a few days ago, Donald Trump was in conversation with former Alaska Governor and GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin. 

     In this recent interview with radio's Howard Stern, Trump stated ( in the face of typical leftist provocation) "I love Sarah Palin, I think she's tremendous, I spoke to her yesterday".

     Following on from the sensational Washington Post report by their renowned journalist Suzi Parker that Sarah Palin was joining the AlJazeera television network it can well be expected that the same level of outstanding investigative journalism will be to the fore from her and the Post. 

     Palin and Trump watchers can look forward, no doubt with breathless expectation, to this headline (or a similar one) "Exclusive report, Sarah Palin to join Donald Trump in the next seasons series of "The Apprentice". 

    Drawing on the same journalistic skills, (and with the Washington Posts outstanding editorial board &"layers of fact-checkers" behind her) which led Parker to write her much commented on "Palin and AlJazeera" column, look for a similarly researched Trump/Palin item. 

    Surely,given her history, she will draw "The Apprentice" gig conclusion from the fact that Trump and Palin have spoken? Surely too, an unbiased newspaper like the Post, and its top journalist, would have no intention to mislead regarding Palin.

    Certainly, given their history in this respect, nothing like that could possibly be inferred. In writing about Palin, the Post and Parker would not be so blinded by partisan hatred, that they would forget basic journalistic standards in a rush to discredit? 

    No-Palin watchers can be assured that if the Washington Post, and their star reporter Parker, draw the conclusion, as one would expect, that Palin will be on "The Apprentice" it will be because, as with their AlJazeera report, that it will be founded on a huge research effort without any prejudice to Palin.


    Nota bene: For the assistance of Suzi Parker, the Washington Post and any other person or media the above article is a satire. To repeat, it is a satire. Note 'nota bene" is Latin which translates as "note well"
