Palin punks the media — again

Palin continues feeding the liberal-media swine their own livers:

Palin fakes out reporters at Gettysburg hotel
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (CNN) – Sarah Palin pulled a clever bait and switch on reporters in Gettysburg on Tuesday, as her “One Nation” bus tour rolls into its third day.

The Palin family and a few members of her staff snuck out of their hotel early, leaving their flashy bus behind in the hotel parking lot to give reporters chasing her the impression that she was still readying for the day.

As members of Palin’s advance staff began to roll out luggage to the bus on Tuesday morning, a crush of media and tourists gathered to meet the potential presidential candidate on her way out of the hotel.

But CNN was soon tipped off that Palin was long gone, off to visit the Civil War battlefields and onward toward Philadelphia.

You just gotta love it. The “dumb snowbilly” is making utter and complete fools of the schmucks and parasites, and I’ll guaran-got-damn-tee you there are a whole lot of people all across the country laughing like hell at them right about now. They’re getting what they deserve at last, and the outraged op-eds we’re going to start seeing soon in the wake of one chumping after another are gonna be a pure delight to read.

Update! As Bill says: WAAAAAHHHH!

Day 2 of Sarah Palin’s bus tour, and the former vice presidential nominee has prompted little more than confusion over exactly what she is up to.

For you assholes, maybe. Here’s a hint: she’s touring historical American sites by bus, getting out and meeting real people, with half an eye towards gauging support for a potential run for President — and you “journalists” are not invited, welcome, or necessary. Too bad you hacks are more accustomed to oleaginous crooks trying to simultaneously mask their real intentions and sucking up to you, in the standard sinister circle-jerk that has done so much to destroy this fucking country. You’re so jaded by the manipulative skullduggery you’re accustomed to that you can’t even recognize simplicity and integrity when it’s slapping you in the face and telling you to go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut.

Just get a load of this confusing, baffling, mystifying subterfuge:

“This isn’t a campaign bus,” Palin said, according to reports. “This is a bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation and to invite more people to be interested in all that is good about America and to remind ourselves we don’t need to fundamentally transform America, we need to restore what’s good about America.”

Now I ask you, what devious socialist could ever make heads or tails of that? Why, it’s plainspoken, sincere, and completely en clair. No good Leftist would ever be able to decipher it.

For supporters and reporters looking for more details, Palin isn’t providing them. Palin’s staff has been unresponsive to reporters’ requests or told them to check the SarahPAC website, which updates with information only after she’s stopped somewhere. 

Like I said: not invited, not welcome, not necessary. There’s a message here for the part-of-the-problem GOP, too:

The lack of information is irking many GOP leaders in the states Palin is expected to visit. “I have had no contact. I question the value of the ‘theater’ by some candidates,” Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Rob Gleason told POLITICO.

In case you hadn’t noticed it, nobody asked you, douchebag. Which of course is exactly what he’s pissed about. But I’ll help out: the “value” to go-along, get-along party hacks is nil. And that’s just as it ought to be. Keep on rolling, Sarah — right over all of them.

Too much pork for just one fork update! Via Ed: it just gets better and better.

Sarah Palin and her advisers are refusing to tell members of the media where she is going on her current bus tour – and the former Alaska governor seems to be enjoying the cat and mouse game that’s resulted.

“I don’t think I owe anything to the mainstream media … I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this, and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop’s going to be,” she told fellow Fox News employee Greta Van Susteren in an interview from the bus.

Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles all trying to make sure they don’t lose sight of the Palin bus.

It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.

“I just hope to God that one of these young producers with a camera whose bosses are making them follow Sarah Palin as a potential Republican candidate don’t get in a car crash, because this is dangerous,” he said.

Boo fucking hoo. Maybe if you jackals would recognize that SHE NEITHER NEEDS NOR WANTS YOU UP HER ASS 24-7, things might become a little clearer to you. She’s a private citizen, not currently running for anything, and she has every right to dodge you in any way she can on her vacation. Screw every last one of you; if you can’t buzz off and leave her alone, and insist on acting like the scum-sucking DNC paparazzi you are, you deserve to live with whatever “dangerous” situation your remorseless drive to hound her and her family creates, and the ensuing consequences. Or, as one of her people puts it:

Corsaro asked a member of Palin’s team if he thought it was dangerous to have reporters forced to chase her from stop to stop. “You’re the ones that are trailing us,” he replied.

Bingo. This, too, is priceless:

She appears to be trying to show that she doesn’t need mainstream media outlets (other than Fox News, where she remains a contributor) to connect with the American people.

“It feels like she’s baiting us and treating us like paparazzi and make the ‘lamestream media’ appear that way,” said Corsaro.

Bingo yet again. Get it through your pointy heads: they don’t need you. They don’t want you. Get lost. Or keep right on letting her make fools of you. Your choice, jerks.

This is going to go down in history as one of the greatest stunts — or pranks, if you will — ever pulled on these self-righteous punks. Bravo to Palin and her crew. What a pleasure this has been to watch unfold; I’d just about vote for her for this alone, and that’s the damned truth.

Bottom line update! Jeff puts his finger on the button:

David Brooks and George Will (among others) may want to rethink who comes to count as an imbecile in this new paradigm — those who blindly follow the same broken and unproductive rules laid out by a feckless establishment class ubiquitously demonized and on the defensive from a hostile media they try desperately to woo; or those who, you know, don’t.

Bang, zoom. You got it. Stupid snowbilly bitch is ruining everything. And it’s about damned time somebody upset their precious little apple carts.

  1. Wow, she ditched them like they were uninvited losers.

    I was thinking the other day, what the next election would be like if the non-Democrats refused to talk to the media outright.

  2. What’s really shocking is the comments on the original Article. She’s run for Vice President, and has traveled the country to say good things about America. That’s it.

    Yet the sheer amount of unrelated vitriol they’re posting, it’s like she’s the second coming of Stalin.

  3. Heck, E, they’d never be that insulting and hateful about Stalin. He’s one of theirs, after all. She definitely ain’t.

  4. I hope that Palin (or someone else on the bus) has a camera pointed out the back window, just so that we can see the ‘paparazzi’.

  5. I am really enjoying this! Where were ” the Media” when the Griswalds went on their roadtrip?
    If she does decide to run, they will try to get revenge on her.
