Matthews: Palin’s book will do well “if she can read”

posted at 9:00 pm on January 23, 2009 by Allahpundit

I don’t think he meant it the way it came out, but Politico does. And I concede, I have no alternate explanation.

Maybe he meant “if she’s developed a compelling narrative voice from years spent poring over the classics”? Help me out here.

Palin will write her own book and no doubt do it well.
Obama most likely did not write his books.

Oh the irony………..

katy on January 23, 2009 at 9:19 PM

HaHa Matthews believes BO wrote his own book! This guy lives in an alternate universe.

Gov. Palin’s book will sit atop the NYT list for a looong time. O the irony.

Buckeye Babe on January 23, 2009 at 9:38 PM

Plagiarism or mind link? You make the call…

katy on January 23, 2009 at 10:10 PM

Rush is just getting started,…Deal with it!

Christene on Jan 23,2009 at 10:))PM.

Christene: Amen and how! If Obama wants to be Rush’s

political enemy Number #1,like Bill Clinton

who also got testy with Rush!

Haha,sit back,its goona be one h#lluva ride!

And when Hopey snaps and goes for the ‘Fairness
Doctrine’,then that will be the ‘Republicans
Canary in the Coalmine’ for a call to action,
politcally by the Republicans,or let the Lefty
steamroller trample on all American rights!

canopfor on January 23, 2009 at 10:11 PM

1) Obama mentions Rush like he mentioned Fox News three or so times during the campaign.

And the comments about Hannity.

He simply is not happy with less than 100% devotion and fealty.

He must, MUST, get everyone. Or get rid of them. Shut them up.

They bother him. A lot. Think about that.

2) And now here we have Obama thinking that Rush is a thorn in his side, because Rush tells the Congressmen how to think.

Obama insults every Republican by suggesting that they get all their ideas from Rush.

It’s bad enough that regular people insult other regular people as “getting all your ideas from Rush,” as if Rush comes up with thoughts and no one else does, as if all conservative ideas were born only in the minds of two or three media people. (In fact, not being a regular listener, I sometimes discover Rush has said the same thing I have said, after I said it.)

But for Obama to insinuate to other politicians they can’t think for themselves is wholely insulting, and must be maddening to them!

3) I think Rush will probably make a lot of hay about how flattered he feels that Obama thinks he is brains for Republicans in Congress.

ddrintn on January 23, 2009 at 10:15 PM

Rush is loving every bit of this. He couldn’t ask for better publicity.
An fight with a hyper sensitive world leader and talk show host will go international!! OMG! Rush is going nuts with this.
Obama has met his match. Obama may try the “I won” on Rush with the fairness doctrine or “localism” as they will call it but this will actually help the fight against it.
GO-Bama Go!

katy on January 23, 2009 at 10:16 PM

clnurnberg on January 23, 2009 at 10:30 PM

(reposted from the headline)
He thinks the Republican resistance to his plan is being caused by Rush’ strong personality to rally the troops.

Understandable, because like the lib Obama is, he thinks that things only got done in his community because HE organized them. He doesn’t understand the individuality going on here or the desire to maintain liberty.

It brings to light two very important things -

1> Obama’s reading the Drudge Report and/or watching Fox News… or listening to Rush. That means this “plan” is not being argued on its merits. He’s angling via political tactics. You guys screaming “Alinsky” just got some proof for your side. This is right out of the Alinsky playbook.

2> Obama thinks he’s smarter than he is. He’s running plays out of the playbook but he can’t adapt. Get him off pattern and he’ll run back to his comfort zone (Contrast that with Reagan and Clinton who could change tactics on the fly).

It was this kind of plastic candy-a** government why Bush won office and why he STILL has my support.

To the Repubs in congress. You want to keep this party? Vote no on this legislation. And if you don’t have the cajones to do so at least vote Present. If the Democrats want their “great shopping spree” let them vote it in on their own.

Join this monstrosity and we WILL make a new political party.

My only difference with your stand is that a “present” vote is something weak a$$ Obama would do.

It is time for the Republicans on the hill to get strong and united.

VOTE NO ON THE TRILLION DOLLAR PORK BILL

Let the democrats use their “I won” majorities to take responsibility for this corrupt payoff to their “pay for play” politics.

The leftists all know that Governor Palin is the real threat in 2012. They saw how she was a vitamin B-12 shot to the republican party. Expect 4 years of the leftist trying to define her as an ignorant bumpkin. We have to do just as much to declare the truth about her. She is an accomplished political star who has vanquished forces of corruption and cronyism in the state of Alaska in both parties and is the embodiment of the heart and soul of traditional American values — the love of country and the belief that the United States is the greatest country in history and that it is the hope for freedom for people all over the world.

Chris Matthews has been a DC insider for so long that he has built up a reserve of disdain for those who achieve acclaim outside of the accepted means. If you pull yourself by your bootstraps as a Democrat, you’re noble. If you do it and you’re a Republican, you are unsophisticated.

Anybody remember him asking Kristina van den Heuvel to take a ride on the back of his motorcycle?

And to think I used to kinda sorta like Matthews when he was a regular on the McLaughlin Group way back when.

Nope, I’m a guy, so I get my fresh feelings in other ways. But really, on McLaughlin back in the early 90s or so, he had a different attitude, maybe because McLaughlin was always cutting him off. He’s just able to let it all hang out on DNC-TV.

I know it is hard to believe now. But there was a time when Chris Matthews was in control of his faculties. He occassionally sat in for Rush and even voted for Bush the first time around. He has always been a liberal, but he used to be somewhat objective. If you ever heard him on Rush or watched his show after Bush was first elected compared to today, you would not recognize the guy. He is now officially insane. This guy is going to have to go into a psych ward when Obama implodes.

This Benny person is, as Obama would say, typical. He/she does not believe anyone, let alone millions of Americans could disagree with his political views. If they do, there must be something wrong with them. Well news flash, we don’t think you are unstable, crazy, or evil. We simply don’t believe your party’s methods work and believe our methods are more helpful to the general welfare of the country. I know that is a hard thing for you to understand. However, if you want to believe in this whole hope and change thing, you know the post-partisanship, post-racial world Obama consistently talked about, then you need to stop throwing stones and start trying to understand different points of views. It is people like you who demonize those who don’t agree with you that the man you voted for has continually called on the carpet. Come on dude, live up to your candidate’s rhetoric. You guys are seriously letting me down.

I get what you are saying, but I think they just have this “basic fairness) idea in their heads, which is unrealistic. They believe if you give enough to people they will somehow become productive. That is a utopian view. The poor, the lazy, will always be with us. All men are created equal but it is up to each man to develop his own individual potential. And for many, the lazy, those looking for a handout, they will never develop those potentials no matter how much they are given they will just keep voting for candidates who promise to give them more putting a heavier burden on those of us who do seek to develop our full potential. Their is no perfection in humanity and the sooner they figure that out the quicker we can get on with betterment of the country. There will always be some form of welfare for those who are truly needy, such as the disabled. However, no amount of social engineering is going to rid us of the lazy with a victim mentality. Giving them more and more only enables them to fester in their discontent.

“Fairness” is just a tool. And I’d have to disagree a little. They know very well what they do. They know, for example, that Sarah Palin is no dummy. They’re just afraid of her. They can’t attack her ideas, or those of just about any other conservative; they know that in this country that’s a losing battle for them. The only thing they can do is try to destroy their opponents personally. Ad hominem arguments. Paint your opponent as a moron.

So far two stories proven false. The RNC bag clothing fiasco and this 11 million dollar book deal that Palin is apparently fishing for.. It was also falsely reported that her daughter took some sort of 30000 dollar incentive to release baby pics.

I don’t know how these rumors float around? Is someone trying to downplay her hockey mom middle class appeal by spreading these lies?

I am sure the governor will write a book in the future, She knows this book will be a major stepping block in changing perceptions around the nation. Expect the book to focus more on policy ideals rather than campaign trail and bio fluff. She probably just needs time to tutor herself and be mentored by a couple of policy wonks in her camp.

I totally agree about Palin. They are trying to discredit her for a future run and you are correct that they cannot fight idea against idea if they want to win. So, I agree that they do use unfair, slanderous tactics and that is aimed at retaining their power. They are fully aware of the tactics they use during elections. They do the same thing with the race card. Crazy stuff like if you say Obama hung out with a domestic terrorist you are a racist, even though you never mention Ayre’s race and it isn’t pertinent to the veracity of the statement. Or that McCain was giving whites the permission the vote against the black candidate by saying he would raise taxes on people making over 200k a year (that’s a Christ Matthew’s statement) which assumes white people are so racist they can easily understand this code language but for some reason Matthews still feels the need to explain it to us. So once again, I agree with you on that point.

I work for bobbles and bangles. Or maybe it’s boobels and bagels. What about you?

Benny works for his mom. When he cleans his room in the basement she pays him 25 cents. If he cleans it extra well, 50 cents.

Cheshire Cat on January 24, 2009 at 12:35 AM

I’m waiting for someone in the mainstream media to not only weigh in on but show some outrage at Rev. Lowrey stating he prays that white embraces right, weren’t we supposed to have done that when we elected a black man president? Or weigh in on Robt Reich saying he doesn’t want stimulus jobs to go to white construction workers basically saying No Whites Need Apply. I have not seen one report on MSNBC or CNN where anyone thought these statement were racist let alone even unfair. So much for our post-racial president.

On the subject of Palin, Iowahawk got it right:

True to the prophesy of the Doritos, wily Crustius had a secret trick up his toga.
From his rock-strewn shipwreck he summoned Palina, huntress of Wasilla,
Whose fertile loins had many odd-named children bore,
Bristol and Trig, Dakota and Algebra, Calculus and Physed,
And yet she retained the visage and figure of a goddess.

Palina emerged from the sea, springing fully formed from a clamshell,
Brandishing the spear that had slain a thousand antlered beasts.
Once mutinous, the Crustonauts were instantly heartened,
For now they and sensed a chance at victory.

Although his pollsters warned of danger, Obamacles was stalwart
For he knew just how he got here. “Attack,” he beckoned very calmly,
And from across the land of Soros, a thousand score of demons answered;
HuffPo nutjobs, New York Kronos, the shrieking hags of talk TV,
Couric, Fey, Oprah, Behar, the hermaphrodites of NBC.

Palina was undaunted by the minions and thus she battled gamely on.
But at last she was attacked by Crustius himself;
For so addled and contrary was the wizened sailor
That he had forgotten which side he was on.
Vanquished Palina returned to Wasilla to fight another day,
While Crustius sails again, forever seeking the elusive Sirens of Media.

ROFL…that’s too good.

Chrissy boy actually believes Hussain wrote his own books.

ah ha ha ha ha.

TheSitRep on January 24, 2009 at 12:47 AM

People,

Chrissy is gay, OK. Now that we have that out of the way.

YES, some gay men are married. It happens. Sometimes they are even married to a …gasp…woman. It happens.

Sapwolf on January 24, 2009 at 12:54 AM

Moonbats can’t even rest when they win. Just gotta keep slashing the same tires.

RightTurnOnly on January 24, 2009 at 12:58 AM

Chris Matthews is like one of those monkeys at the zoo that throw their own poop and masturbate all day long.

Mr. Joe on January 23, 2009 at 11:55 PM

LOL!

This reminds me of a story years ago when I was like 9 years old. We had a family pet hamster. The hamster was pleasing himself one time but of course I didn’t know what it was doing. I thought it was cleaning itself. Naive boy I was. Some years later I remembered the hamster and my brother and I cracked up when I told him the story.

YES, animals play with themselves people, even hamsters.

Sapwolf on January 24, 2009 at 1:07 AM

A Palin book? I can’t wait, it’s been years since I’ve seen those old school pop up books.

Swerve. Just because he’s an idiot doesn’t mean you need to go insulting gays by attributing his douchery to them.

I don’t understand seemingly heterosexual men thinking so deeply about other mens’ sexuality. When you say that he’s gay, do you imagine him engaged in homosexual acts to confirm your notions?

The Race Card on January 24, 2009 at 1:12 AM

If Sarah writes a book, it will be a bestseller for a long time and will make Chrissy feel foolish even more.

The woman CAN write. Anybody seen some of her stuff? The stuff of hers I’ve read looks pretty sharp to me.

Sapwolf on January 24, 2009 at 1:12 AM

YES! animals play with themselves people, even hamsters YES! YES! YES!

I suspect Chrissy is gay because of the way he talks and acts in regards to Obama. There seems to be something funny going on.

Yes, I do believe that Chrissy HAS fantasized about himself and Obama. Just a guess but of course we can’t read minds.

His douchery is not from other gays. It is HIS douchery.

Sapwolf on January 24, 2009 at 1:18 AM

What a tool.

Hopefully one pop-up will be a picture of her giving you and the other haters the finger. :)

NathanG on January 24, 2009 at 1:50 AM

The fact is Matthews is gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that as Seinfeld would say. But straight men don’t get thrills up their legs from the sound of other men’s voices.

church on January 24, 2009 at 1:55 AM

The narrative or liberal template has been set. If Sarah does indeed come out with a book and claims she wrote it herself, the Left will accuse her of lying, because nobody that stupid, inane or airheaded could have done that. And if Sarah admits that she collaborated on a book with a professional writer then the Left will claim she is not smart enough to write a book on her own, as their own Messiah has on two separate occasions.

The moral of the story is that the MSM and Obama and his merry men and women are so nefarious to always have a game plan handy and ready to go that always will mock everything Sarah does or says in the next four years in their attempt to marginalize Sarah. These people play dirty and for keeps, are utterly ruthless and sinister, and take no prisoners.

The old expression is “Never give a sucker an even break.”

In the amoral 21st century it has been upgraded to “Never give the worthy competition an even break. Instead do everything within your power to destroy it.”

technopeasant on January 24, 2009 at 2:09 AM

Obama was the editor (the first black editor, mind you) of the Harvard Law Review. And yet, he never wrote an opinion, case research, nada for the periodical. First time ever. I doubt he can write at all. He must have had a ghost writer(s?) for his books.

stonemeister on January 23, 2009 at 9:52 PM

If I remember correctly, he didn’t do much writing in the Senate either. All those smarts, and couldn’t even come up with a single law.
Not that it would have been, you know, PART OF HIS JOB or anything.

Knuckledragger on January 24, 2009 at 3:54 AM

I just read Palin’s State of the State address at Hillbuzz. A couple of awkward pivots in there and I can’t pretend to know what all the acronyms stand for but tell me – after all I’m just an Aussie: does that sound like a woman who is positioning herself for a run in 2012 or what?

saint on January 24, 2009 at 4:04 AM

No, Matthews, the question is whether anyone watches you say the really incredibly stupid things you do.

Phil Byler on January 24, 2009 at 7:01 AM

Chris looks like he wears lipstick and colors his hair.

IlikedAUH2O on January 23, 2009 at 9:18 PM

Don’t know about the lipstick, but he does bleach his hair. If you’ve seen photos of him in his younger days, you will see that his natural hair color is dark brown.

Matthews is just jealous of Gov. Palin because she’s a much more attractive woman than he will ever be.

AZCoyote on January 24, 2009 at 7:16 AM

You know, during the Clinton years, Matthews was one of a handful of Democrat journalists who had the intellectual integrity to admit that Clinton was a moral sleaze (Mike Isikoff was another.) He earned some respect from me for that.

Today, he spent the last of that capital.

philwynk on January 24, 2009 at 7:24 AM

So Chrissy is saying that Hillary isn’t a politician ‘who can write’? Or is he saying Hillary isn’t a politician? Or is he saying Bill couldn’t write a speech? Or a book if he wanted to do so? Or is Bill not a politician? And I guess someone must be reading the Alaska state budget and Gov Palin’s campaign speeches must have been read by Tina Fey cause how could Gov Palin have been reading them? What Chrissy is really afraid of is that Gov Palin’s book would outsell BOTH of Obama’s books combined. That would be devastating to the Obamessiah cult.

eaglewingz08 on January 24, 2009 at 7:25 AM

You know you still read them in the room with the padded walls.

Cheap shots are easy.

V15J on January 24, 2009 at 8:31 AM

I hope she banks the money for a run against The One in ’12.

Kafir on January 24, 2009 at 8:37 AM

I believe that Hillary used a ghost writer for her Living History book. There was some flap because the writer was uncredited or something. And Bill can write in the sense that he can put words on a page, but his problem is that he can’t stop writing. He’s verbose.
