Video: When Andrea met Sarah

posted at 1:15 pm on November 22, 2009 by Allahpundit

You loved the photos, now see the movie! The fun begins at around 1:40. In Mitchell’s defense, it never quite reaches the point where security has to tackle her.

Thanks for the clip to Jim Treacher, who continues to keep things in perspective.

AWESOMENESS AWESOME!!!

I would’ve had her pushed farther back…parked by the exit on the highway and the store?

Messiah? WTF? Are you just a trained monkey who spews out pre-programmed bile at anyone who seems to stand out? Really? MY Messiah? I assume you are referring to Lord Barry? Me? The bald face defamer of The One? Wow. Um look you must be new at this so I suggest you take a mulligan on this one. Adjust your cup and swing again.

ronsfi on November 23, 2009 at 10:48 AM

The least she could have done was to bring a copy of the book forward for Palin to sign. Given that Palin was “at work” as she put it so succinctly outside, Andrea was like one of those “trips to the Caribbean” faxes that arrive every so often just when you are trying to fax something out.

It seems like Andrea’s wearing a hairshirt with this gig. I wonder if this is to make up for her nasty barb at the convention last year that got picked up?

Whatever it is, it’s pretty obvious that she’s not going to be able to grab an interview. She should give this up.

Really? Because I said repeatedly that I didn’t agree with her. So what is your point?. You don’t have one. My point, again was that you were needlessly personal and vicious to a longtime commenter who has always been respectful to those of us with whom she has disagreed. So really, aren’t you just a dime a dozen kiss ass? I’m sure you’re all roflmao though.

In the double standards department:

“The apartment was small, with slanting floors and irregular heat and a buzzer downstairs that didn’t work, so that visitors had to call ahead from a pay phone at the corner gas station, where a black Doberman the size of a wolf paced through the night in vigilant patrol, its jaws clamped around an empty beer bottle.”

Let’s get Professor Barack Obama to correct Sarah Palin’s poor writing… I mean he was editor of Harvard Law Review, so he knows how to write well. The Slate commentators let loose on the Palin.

Oh wait, that badly written line above was actually written by Barack Obama*!

* In President Obama’s defense he did release a statement that the line in question was acutally Bill Ayers’.

Mr. Joe on November 23, 2009 at 11:31 AM

If Mrs. Palin has become media savvy, no power in the ‘verse can stop her.

29Victor on November 23, 2009 at 11:31 AM

When I see the cult of personality that is Sarah Palin, the one thing that comes to mind is Barack Obama. Same feeling of worship, same blind loyalty, similar levels of experience (read: very little). You can’t deny it’s all very similar. It’s something we need to get away from. Chanting your candidate’s name (or anyone’s name for that matter) seems a bit creepy in my book.

NOt criticizing anyone for making a buck. But this is a political site, and the hosts should be honest in the direction or intent of the site. Yes, it is a sounding board for opinions. Hot Air, if you want. The hosts should still be honest about their beliefs. Since MM is a major player of HA I assume the point of the site is actually about conservatism vs. liberalism, weighing in on the Right side of that scale. So its contributors would, I would hope, be consistent in promoting conservative thought and principles. While it can be argued conservatives are represented by the Republican Party, many supporters no longer believe that. Yes, people of all beliefs and attitudes who espouse certain core principles but waver on the social issues are an important part of the RP and conservatism. Gays and atheists like AP should be welcome – if they are being honest about their participation. AP, I believe, and his posts are meant to be devicive, not just controversies to drive hits. It was quite clear during the election last year that AP was supportive of The One. Probably because he has no believe in a God, a Creator, some f*cking thing other than his own self one can understand how a conservative could feel that thrill-up-a-leg and fall for such a con that is Obama.

HA use to be a place for conservatives to debate the issue and rail against liberals. But with AP – and who knows who else since I really don’t visit the site as deeply as I use to – the place has become a haven for Huffpos like him whose only intent, beside making a buck, is to delight in ridiculing the religious Right.

NathanG on November 23, 2009 at 11:40 AM

The biggest problem is the argument will be made that conservatives railed against Obama for not having the requisite experience, yet they’re backing Palin who doesn’t have much experience herself. 1 half of 1 term as governor of a Republican-friendly state where she suddenly quit to become a media superstar- well, the argument will easily be made that she quit for herself. She became a facebook superstar and has made well over $5 million for writing an autobiography. The argument will be made that conservatives poked fun at a young Obama who did very little then wrote an autobiography, and the same goes for Palin. An autobiography because she was chosen as a VP candidate…and few deny that Palin was chosen for her good looks, and she was chosen to take away Hilary voters who wanted a female.

No matter how you spin it, conservatives backing Palin will have to look like hypocrites on some level. Hypocrties who are hardly going to sway the moderates needed to win in 2012.

Are you sure that old bag was Andrea, that women in the you tube video only looked 90, Andrea is at least 190 and has been on life support promoting sucking tax dollars out of working Americans. Sarah should have ripped out her false teeth for Andrea’s no class shoving the Newsweek cover in her face. Talk about Angels and Demons.

Three words immediately come to mind when I see that Andrea Mitchell pic with Sarah Palin:

skank

hag

hate-monger

I haven’t looked, but I assume there are MSM reports of this meeting, breathlessly describing how Mrs Greenspan “took Sarah to task”, or some other such fantasy.

Stay strong, Sarah, and I hope your book tour makes it to RI.

You are tiresome. I do not care why Sarah was picked for the VP slot. I do not like her because of her looks or her gender. Commenters on this very thread have been trying very hard to tell you what they like about this woman, and you can hear nothing except “Hillary’s women voters”, “pretty”, “quitter” and “sell books.” There is no further purpose to engaging someone who has placed his hands over his ears and screamed “nah nah nah, I can’t hear you!”

alwaysfiredup on November 23, 2009 at 12:47 PM

That’s what you don’t get…it doesn’t matter what you think, because you adore Sarah and all that she does. You don’t care that she was picked because of her good looks? Well, again it doesn’t matter.

What matters is moderates don’t like her. Moderates win you elections. What matters is that the left (and the moderates) will attack Palin’s lack of experience, and in turn they will attack her backers hypocrisy as they attacked Obama’s lack of experience. They will attack her for quitting, and there’s no good excuse to put forward as to why she couldn’t handle but one half of one term of governor of Alaska.

You might tire of me, but I have good points that will need to be addressed. My guess is moderates won’t be pleased with the lame retorts to all of Palin’s baggage. And yes, even John Gibson was, today, comparing the cult of personality with Palin to the cult of personality with Obama. Oddly enough, he seemed okay with the current Palin cult following when he wasn’t okay with Obama’s rockstar status. Conservatives attacked Obama as a celebrity, moderates and leftists will do the same with Palin…and my point was- the two cults are eerily similar.

TheBlueSite on November 23, 2009 at 1:36 PM

I find it all so fascinating how some so-called Conservatives want to say that you can’t enjoy and experience a person on our side because otherwise it’s a Cult of Personality issue. Forgive me but I fail to see the similarities. If someone gives pretty speech of no substance and trots off to foreign lands to campaign for votes he cannot get in this land, that’s a Cult of Personality. If you tout policy that you have no experience implementing, that’s a Cult of Personality.

No one on God’s Green Earth EVER said that Sarah Palin is a big time HOT speaker. If anything, the Elitist folks in the Conservative camp complain constantly that she’s hickish and repeats the same old talking points over and over again. NOT a Cult of Personality. She goes to Hong Kong and give a speech that’s widely spoke of by the people inside as well articulated policy and forceful, that’s NOT a Cult of Personality. She WASN’T trying to persuade the masses of her intelligence. If you’ve implemented policies as an executive administrator and have gotten attention for doing so to the point that you get picked to run as someone’s VP candidate, that’s NOT a Cult of Personality.

There is a difference between the two. If someone that speaks your political language comes to town, if you pay $1,000.00 to go to dinner with them or go to listen their speech then it’s a Cult of Personality phenomenon? Ridiculous. I campaigned for Ronald Reagan because of his political ideas and the things he said and the things he did. You bet your a$$ I would stand in hail and a lightning storm to see him speak, just like I stood for 12 hours JUST to pass by his coffin in Simi Valley!! Yep! You bet your a$$ that’s what I’d do! Guess he was just a Cult of Personality. Pfft!

TheBlueSite on November 23, 2009 at 11:48 AM

I agree about the Hillary thing and the fact McCain saw something “inspiring” in picking a woman. She also had the “young, fresh,” factor. I don’t believe she was picked because of her good looks.
Like I said, I love her as a person and I’m betting she was a good governor, but he should have picked someone with more experience. Hindsight is 20/20 anyway. I think the other possible candidates in the Republican field are just as interesting. I still just don’t get why people immediately flock around Obama and Palin.
That being said, look at how little experience the presidents of the past have had. Several only had 2-4 years as governors or Senators. I think it’s different now, and I expect the Republicans to show the Democrats how much long experience REALLY matters now. Reagan is a great example. Eight years is a good number, maybe 6 like Bush had. To me, it just looks good on paper. Jindal is another great example. He has experience in the medical research/knowledge field, and served in the House and as governor as well. Of course, he’s not running, but that kind of candidate would be appealing.

TheBlueSite on November 23, 2009 at 1:36 PM

You are making the exact same points that many, many before you have made. You are ignoring counterarguments. You claim all of Palin’s supporters 1) are conservatives and 2) worship her. I fit neither stereotype. I see no real reason for you to take my word for it, but I am a conservative/moderate Democrat who shares few of Palin’s personal views, and yet I see a lot to admire in her. Most obviously, her courage and conviction. She is not perfect, but then we have a distinct dearth of perfect politicians in this country.

I believe as they learn more about her, moderates will come to see Palin the way I see her: someone who you can trust to do a good job of the day-to-day business of governing. With a son in the army she is very unlikley to go gallivanting around the globe starting wars, and with her small-business experience and small-government views she is unlikely to press for nanny-state legislation that makes people’s lives more difficult. This is all I seek in an administrator. I think she would do as good a job at that as any other candidate I’ve observed. How’s that for “worship”?

TheBlueSite on November 23, 2009 at 11:32 AM

Yeah…whatever.

Personally, I have reservations about all those running for political positions, and if you’ll notice few of us have a “blind loyalty” for Sarah Palin. On one hand I want to hear more concrete details about her positions. On the other hand it is difficult for a true conservative because they don’t have much to say about things like dreaming up new government programs or “fixing” the economy because they know better than to think that can be done through a centralized bureaucracy.

But with the Leftist knuckleheads up there running (?) things in Washington right now, even Dan Quayle looks damn good.

Dr. ZhivBlago on November 23, 2009 at 4:28 PM

What we have here folks, is the Left’s new talking point–”Sarah is a cult of personality”. In other words, we are so blinded by the light that we have been knocked senseless and therefore we should be dismissed as brainless. Where before we were “brainless” because we couldn’t see what a simpleton Sarah was, now they have switched tactics and are “comparing/contrasting” Sarah with Obama, which makes her acceptable politically, just not to the right people…

And all this worrying about how we are following a “pied piper”, as if we are all morons, is pathetic because there is still almost 3 yrs before 2012…

She’s a celebrity now–THAT’S why I would stand in line to get her signature. I think the gnashing of the teeth, and the wringing of the hands that we are all such lemmings that we would blindly follow Sarah over a cliff is for naught.

We all realize that we have work to do for victory in 2010.

You are breaking your arm patting yourself on the back in self-admiration at your “witty” comebacks–so I have to hand it to you–you type pretty well one-handed. At some point TAO invited our scorn when she was deliberately being obtuse to play with us. No one can be THAT stupid…She had an agenda, and she played her game. For you to call us trolls, and to call Treacher a troll, puts you in the same league as TAO. Flame wars can be fun and unusually satisfying–bandying words must have been such a release for you.

I should have clarified that remark. I note that she is a celebrity and I would stand in line for her–which I did when she came to speak here in Des Moines last year. But she is a celebrity due to her principles–AND to her place in history.
I would never stand in line for Huck, or any of the others…

lovingmyUSA on November 23, 2009 at 6:03 PM

I was a fan of Reagan. A big fan. But I can’t imagine ever waking up at 4:00am to go stand in line for hours to see him say a few words.

This kind of blind devotion to ANY politician is a little creepy to me.

angryed on November 23, 2009 at 7:55 AM

Really? I guess you were unawares when people spent days waiting to pay their respects at his passing. I was out of pocket then, but if I could’ve, I would’ve. So I settled for watching it all vicariously.

Just because some drool, doesn’t mean everyone drools.

Put another way, if one can get up at 4am — heck,spend the night — to stand in line to get tickets to see a concert w/nary a hope of meeting the band, then doing so in hopes of a few words with RR/SP ain’t such a sign of “drooling”.
