Betty White on Palin: “That is one crazy b*tch”

posted at 4:00 pm on October 10, 2008 by Allahpundit

She’s a “lifelong Democrat,” according to Wikipedia, and famously an advocate of animals’ rights, which means she’s naturally ill disposed to America’s favorite moose hunter. Even so, it’s hard to get worked up about this for the same reason it’s hard to get too worked up about Madonna: There’s nothing so charming as an old lady cursing.

Watch this and you’ll see what I mean. (Content warning.) Exit fun fact about the big A: I’ve seen every episode of “The Golden Girls.” Dude.

And here I used to think she was such a nice old lady.

Politics surely brings out the worst in people….

*eats*

Grue in the Attic on October 10, 2008 at 4:02 PM

And you, Betty, are one very disappointing, ugly, old one.

stenwin77 on October 10, 2008 at 4:02 PM

Kettle meet black.

I guess the good people of Alaska didn’t know who they were electing up until now. /sarc

DerKrieger on October 10, 2008 at 4:03 PM

All these old cranks are getting in on the act. When was the last time you saw Cybill Sheppard on TV? Geez, go to your retirement homes and stay there!

ctmom on October 10, 2008 at 4:03 PM

Dude.

Still have a crush on Estelle Getty huh?

lorien1973 on October 10, 2008 at 4:04 PM

Betty “White”! Racist

Grue in the Attic on October 10, 2008 at 4:02 PM

No, her husband, Allen Ludden, was the nice old lady.

flipflop on October 10, 2008 at 4:04 PM

Does she suddenly think she’s Cloris Leachman?

(btw, Cloris is much funnier and more talented. Nurse Diesel, need I say more?)

Darksean on October 10, 2008 at 4:05 PM

No, her husband, Allen Ludden, was the nice old lady.

O.o

Grue in the Attic on October 10, 2008 at 4:05 PM

Why is Betty getting so much time?

So we can see an old lady say bitch?

What makes her crazy, Betty?

originalpechanga on October 10, 2008 at 4:05 PM

Well, Betty you are on my ‘never watch you again’ list. I did at one time think alot of you.

Sadly, that’s pretty mild considering what we’ve seen from the left.

amerpundit on October 10, 2008 at 4:07 PM

I am kinda surprised she appeared without her broom and flaming cauldron

That was, uh, disturbing.

CP on October 10, 2008 at 4:08 PM

What happened to the classy older stars that my parents got to enjoy? They may have cheated on their husbands/wives, gambled and experimented with drugs and plenty of alcohol behind the scenes, but they were classy in public appearances.

Now, we’ve got all the bad stuff right out in the open and they are very unclassy in appearances because apparently being super-foul is ‘in’ now.

JadeNYU on October 10, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Palin’s crazy, bbbuuut, Obama’s ok. Shut up granny.

marklmail on October 10, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Prediction:

the E! Network, Sal on The Daily 10 and Joel on the Soup (merciless liberals) will all run this as a “top story” and blame Palin.

THe conventional wisdom merry go round continues

battleoflepanto1571 on October 10, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Ugh. Please stop. These people are ruining all entertainment for me. With the new Depression coming what form of escapism will I have left? “Travel down the road and back again” will never sound as sweet.

D0WNT0WN on October 10, 2008 at 4:09 PM

I don’t care if she’s a Democrat or not… that’s just classless.

Skywise on October 10, 2008 at 4:10 PM

I grew-up watching her. Boooooohooooooo…hisssssss.

I liked it better when I could watch tv and movies and not know someone’s political leanings. That’s why I watch Korean dramas.

I didn’t watch the whole video, it started up,

Exit fun fact about the big A: I’ve seen every episode of “The Golden Girls.”

That speaks volumes.

So this is your new thing, eh? Putting up any and all craptastic links about Palin? How about putting up the craptastic links to the craptasticly crappest candidate McShamnesty. McShamnesty is the crap.

Sultry Beauty on October 10, 2008 at 4:11 PM

Ah yeah….she drinks the Obama/Biden koolaid!

grapeknutz on October 10, 2008 at 4:11 PM

So, I guess this means that McCain is losing the “crazy old lady” vote. That’ll hurt.

AP–Some facts about ourselves really should stay to ourselves. Just sayin’…

richardj on October 10, 2008 at 4:11 PM

Does she suddenly think she’s Cloris Leachman?

(btw, Cloris is much funnier and more talented. Nurse Diesel, need I say more?)

Darksean on October 10, 2008 at 4:05 PM

I don’t know what her politics are, but Cloris Leachman is a comedic genius.

One of my favorite scenes from Mel Brooks’ “History of the World, Part I” is the scene of the French resistance meeting with Madame LaFarge ending the meeting on a high note.

Classic.

Oh, and I used to enjoy the doddering Betty White. Now? Not so much.

techno_barbarian on October 10, 2008 at 4:12 PM

Considering there is no way the one can lose, they sure are pulling out all the stops on the left…

OMG, if that is true, you are officially my hero.

I have a guy coming to fix my sarc button next week, honest.

Vashta.Nerada on October 10, 2008 at 4:13 PM

I want to know the back story. What the hell are the talking about, with carrier pigeons, and McCain’s speeches?

RWLA on October 10, 2008 at 4:13 PM

Sorry Betty.
I’m a knee-jerk animal rights person too.
I’m still voting McCain/Palin.

annoyinglittletwerp on October 10, 2008 at 4:14 PM

HOW MANY OLD HAS BEENS CAN THEY WHEEL OUT TO BASH CUDA????

SDarchitect on October 10, 2008 at 4:15 PM

If you want your illusions about Betty White completely destroyed, watch the Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner.

Pretty sure I never expected to hear her say the word “c-ckring”.

I was genuinely shocked that she is still alive.

LISTEN UP! Seriously my like-minded friends with some sense… Let’s please boycott Hollywood. Let’s quit going to movies and let’s even quit renting them. Quit buying PEOPLE magazine, Oprah’s magazine too. Quit watching her show. Don’t buy any of the gossip mags.

Let’s make a statement to those total idiots. Please join me! What do you think?

Oink on October 10, 2008 at 4:17 PM

Hawkins1701 on October 10, 2008 at 4:16 PM

That’s what I was gonna say. She’s not exactly bashful.

I’m sure that Sarah would smile at her and say, “You ain’t seen the half of it, Betty!”

MoCoM on October 10, 2008 at 4:17 PM

How the hell old is she, like 150? A woman her age shouldnt talk like that.

So they DO fly over the Cuckoo nest or at least
into it.

Texyank on October 10, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Democrat or not, it was still funny. Tasteless & inappropriate, yes, but some of the best humor frequently is. Betty has always had a potty mouth, and it’s funny because you don’t see it coming.

BeachBaby on October 10, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Already there. I quit buying those mags years ago. I just canceled HBO this week.

MoCoM on October 10, 2008 at 4:20 PM

I love the Golden Girls, too. It says something when a show that is that old and that dated can still be so genuinely funny.

DaveS on October 10, 2008 at 4:20 PM

None of the “girls” could drag their tired old asses to Estelle Getty’s funeral.

Blake on October 10, 2008 at 4:20 PM

I rented Golden Girls, not bad at all. Oh sorry, you mean that show with the old ladies that my grandma and my gay neighbor used to watch together? DUDE!

RW Wacko on October 10, 2008 at 4:21 PM

None of the “girls” could drag their tired old asses to Estelle Getty’s funeral.

Blake on October 10, 2008 at 4:20 PM

They were afraid of overhearing the betting on who’s next.

Vashta.Nerada on October 10, 2008 at 4:22 PM

I wonder if she looks older than McCain’s mother because of all of the blow?

At any rate, if she can use that word to describe Gov. Palin and get away with it, could I use a word that begins with “n” to describe Obama?

Oh of course, that would be “racist”

leetpriest on October 10, 2008 at 4:22 PM

Hey Betty. Go dangle your rancid old tootsies in Lake Placid. I’ll bet the gators hungry.

AubieJon on October 10, 2008 at 4:23 PM

Wonder if McCain will watch her reruns and the remark.

I was originally going to say Narcissistic, but yeah, that works too.

leetpriest on October 10, 2008 at 4:25 PM

What is it about Mrs. Palin, who as far as I can tell, has never said a nasty word about any of these old bats and yet they can’t wait to get on camera and talk about her as if they have done an intense, detailed psychological exam.

All these old celebs are accomplishing is the spoiling of any good feelings I ever had for them.

Texan on October 10, 2008 at 4:27 PM

I remember that Shatner roast. Lisa Lampenelli had a great line: “Betty White is so old that on her first game show appearance the grand prize was fire.”

Anywho, I still like Betty. And good to see her and Colin together again. They worked together on the short-lived sitcom “Maybe This Time”, starring Marie Osmond.

Tuning Spork on October 10, 2008 at 4:27 PM

For a moment I thought the title was reference Betty White.

MarkTheGreat on October 10, 2008 at 4:28 PM

I’ve seen every episode of “The Golden Girls.”

Don’t feel bad, Big A. My hunky, manly-man hubby can give the synopsis to every “Little House on the Prairie” episode as soon as he sees the episode title. Go figure.

KelliD on October 10, 2008 at 4:29 PM

Well, she did go to St. Olaf.

elpresidente on October 10, 2008 at 4:29 PM

Every episode of the Golden Girls, AP? And I thought McCain was tough…

Actually, the show wasn’t half bad. I liked the oversexed Rue McClanahan, and White’s character was funny. I don’t care what she says here…senility setting in, maybe?

changer1701 on October 10, 2008 at 4:29 PM

But she meant it in a good way.

locomotivebreath1901 on October 10, 2008 at 4:29 PM

Marybeth on October 10, 2008 at 4:31 PM

Oh for gods sake lighten up folks. It was a skit. She’s one of the semi-regular guests on the show. All her visits have her slightly out of control. In one of them she wanted to give Craig a needle … in the eye.

gh on October 10, 2008 at 4:31 PM

Mental derangement and graying vaginal pubic hair go hand in hand. Proven by many just in the last couple of weeks.

redrock on October 10, 2008 at 4:33 PM

I remember watching those old crones from the Golden Girls blathering on about animal rights years ago and thinking that every damn one of them, guaranteed, were pro-abortion. They’ll get worked up over chickens, but defend the right to vivisect human children.

Agreed. It was pretty obvious the whole thing was a bit. Do I doubt she really thinks of Palin that way? No, but so what. Is anyone really looking to Betty White for voting advice?

changer1701 on October 10, 2008 at 4:35 PM

God bless your heart Betty, but please, STFU!

Already there. No magazines. No movies. Cancelled the LA Times last year. I read the regional paper off the web. And I limit myself to a handful of cable networks (gotta have my Closer, Burn Notice, MythBusters, and Dirty Jobs), cable news, and football (gotta’ love that Big Ten Network and NFL Sunday Ticket, baby!).

Speaking of the latter, I hereby announce that I am going to root for the Cleveland Browns (except when/if they play against the ‘Skins, of course).

I don’t care that an “entertainer” is supporting Obama. What bothers me is they can’t just support their choice, they have to slime the other candidate. How many entertainers that are supporting McCain have called Obama names?

Funny thing,though,when the thread came up on McCain
couldn’t use a computer,I went on one of my Snarks,
and joked about Mccain using pidgeon’s as a form of
communication,Hummmmmmmm!!

canopfor on October 10, 2008 at 4:43 PM

I’ve seen every episode of “The Golden Girls.”

In a former life, I had a girlfriend who was a big Golden Girls fan, so I’ve watched many of ‘em, too. That Blanche was so naughty, wasn’t she?

sandberg on October 10, 2008 at 4:43 PM

this whole thing was written and practiced
I’ll even bet she had cue cards with her punch lines
it wasn’t an interview it was a skit.

efears on October 10, 2008 at 4:44 PM

Too bad Betty can trash someone without having her smack scripted out and someone feeding her lines.

Mallard T. Drake on October 10, 2008 at 4:45 PM

Umm, was I the only one to notice how fake that whole thing was?? She obviously gave Ferguson questions to ask her, and then she proceeded to answer with something “funny.”

So fake.

efears on October 10, 2008 at 4:46 PM

There’s nothing so charming as an old lady cursing.

Having taken care of aged family members, ‘charming’ is indeed the correct word when used with a sarcasm tag.

baldilocks on October 10, 2008 at 4:46 PM

Anyone that puts the plight of animals over that of humans is a bit distorted. What a shock that she’s a liberal.

And who cares what she thinks, again?

Hening on October 10, 2008 at 4:49 PM

I liked her character on, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Sue Ann. Sadly all good things come to an end.
