Examples of the deceit and boobery abound – Roland Burris won’t vote for legislation that does not include a public option but the public option is dead; the Big Blog Boys pretend it is news that the Dimocrats are involved in a “murder/suicide” crime of historic proportions. We wrote about the Democratic suicide in real time, as it was happening – in August 2008, in Denver, at the convention.
And untrustworthy Howard Dean, the same Howard Dean we mocked by urging him to run for President might actually be taking steps to run for president. The foolish Doctor is prescribing the Obama health scam be “killed”.
Howard Dean is stabbing Obama in the back because Obama stabbed Howie in the back after Howie stabbed Hillary in the back at the behest and to benefit the backstabbing Barack Obama who along with Rahm Emmanuel stabbed Howie in the back. So now Howie is challenging Obama on the very day Obama continues to predict his scam will pass and urges Dimocratic senators to drag him and his toxic bill across the finish line in the same way they dragged him across the primary election finish line.
It’s time to again discuss the next presidential elections and Hillary’s future.

A few days ago, in Part II (Part III will be published this week as Obama returns to Copenhagen) of our Tiger Woods/Obama Birth Certificate/Rezko/etc. article we promised we would discuss the article we wrote immediately after the Hillary victory in New Hampshire during the primaries. We wrote, “if the Hillary campaign had followed our advice in that article on what to do next – things would have turned out differently”.
What did we suggest the Hillary campaign do on January 10, 2008? This is what we urged the campaign do:
1. The next primary is Michigan. Hillary should declare that the Michigan delegation to the Democratic convention should be seated. Hillary should demand that all candidates agree that the Democrats of Michigan should not be disenfranchised. Make Michigan a big deal.
2. Same thing as above regarding Florida. Force Obama and Edwards to say whether the Democrats of Michigan and Florida should be disenfranchised – NOW – Before the Michigan and Florida primaries.
The campaign was too slow in taking our recommendation. It was months before Michigan and Florida came to the center stage as they should have been all along – certainly after New Hampshire when it was clear to everyone that every male candidate and every Big Media “personality” was devoted to Obama and the destruction of Hillary. In our article on January 10, 2008 we explained why we made the suggestions we made:
[Why do we suggest the above? Once the voting starts the race becomes about acquiring the delegates that will vote to elect the nominee at the Democratic convention. Hillary needs to secure the massive delegations from Michigan and Florida. The way to do that is to fight for them. Obama, via John Conyers, will run an advertising campaign to try to get the Michigan voters to vote noncommitted, not for Hillary, in their primary and deprive Hillary of a Michigan victory. Hillary has to fight for the votes in Michigan and Florida and demonstrate that Obama has not and will not support the voters of Michigan and Florida.]
We were right on target in January 2008.
We also strongly urged:
1. There has not been 1 single debate to discuss issues of importance to women. Not one single debate.
The Hillary campaign can insist that this oversight be corrected. The next debates before the February 5 primaries should be about issues specifically concerning women; a debate also on gay issues where we can discuss the Obama gay bashing tour. We should also have a debate to specifically discuss health care and Obama’s abandonment of 15 million Americans with his NOT universal health care plan. We should also have a debate to discuss issues of particular importance to young voters.[snip]
2. The next debate in Nevada on January 15 will be hosted by MSNBC. If Chris Matthews or Tim Russert are moderating these debates Hillary should refuse to attend. Let Matthews and Russert and Obama and Edwards attack her all they want but Hillary should make it clear she will no longer put up with their misogyny. At the very least, before the debate the campaign should preempt the “Iron My Shirt” brigade by demonstrating how soft they have been on Obama and how relentlessly unfair they have been towards Hillary Clinton. The campaign can research all the disgusting things MSNBC has aired and make it clear in specific terms how disgusting MSNBC has been.
Again, we were exactly on target, when it mattered, on January 10, 2008.
Our final suggestions also concerned Big Media and it’s love of Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton had been doing what we suggested. Hillary Clinton had discussed what needed to be discussed, but her campaign did not follow through and allowed Big Media to continue its bad behavior. Here’s what we wrote:
In short, Hillary confronting Chris Matthews on his sick and twisted obsession with Bill Clinton’s penis and Hillary Clinton’s – well everything – and his blatent misogyny and “horny” talk and Jabba the Hut vileness was a smart move. We want to see more of a tough attitude towards the media. We know common political wisdom is that it is not good to pick fights with people who “buy ink by the barrel” but this is a particularly good moment to teach the American people about what their news outlets have become: propaganda outlets for the Big Media Party and in particular the Big Media Party candidate du jour Barack Obama.
As to Obama, continue to expose his record. In South Carolina ask the question to African-Americans: what has Obama ever done for you? Where has Obama been all these many years? Where has Obama been while Hillary Clinton has been fighting for the rights of all Americans, particularly African-Americans.
Discuss how Obama abandoned his African-American constituents in Chicago to unheated apartments while getting millions of dollars to the slumlord who is Obama’s friend. DISCUSS REZKO.
This one sentence merits further discussion: “We know common political wisdom is that it is not good to pick fights with people who “buy ink by the barrel” but this is a particularly good moment to teach the American people about what their news outlets have become…”
Today, that sentence embodies what we think Hillary Clinton must remember most when hiring for future endeavors. That sentence embodies most what we think Hillary Clinton can learn from Sarah Palin.
In Part I of Hillary Clinton Versus Sarah Palin we noted why Sarah Palin has an advantage over Hillary when it comes to Big Media:
Hillary failed to win the fight against the Big Media Party because Hillary was under attack from all corners. Hillary was attacked by the PINO Big Blog Boys as well as their masters at Big Media. [snip]
Fox News is not a Hillary friend, but rather a constant enemy, even though during the primaries it was mostly fair and balanced. Fox News is increasingly up to its old tricks and attacks against Hillary. [snip]
Hillary has close to no Big Media allies. Hillary also, during the primaries had few allies on websites. Other than HillaryIs44 there were no other Hillary support sites. There were a few websites which tried to be fair and eventually became Hillary friendly websites but for too long Big Pink was all alone. We were right and strong but outnumbered by the PINO Big Blog Boys and the Big Media outlets on the internet.
Sarah Palin might succeed in her fight with Big Media. Sarah Palin does have allies in the right wing of the Big Media Party.
In the next fight Hillary Clinton will not be alone on the Internet. HillaryIs44 will not be alone. Too late, but by April 2008 many Hillary supporters had a presence on the internet to defend Hillary. More aggregators have followed listing the many Hillary support websites which came in our wake. But it was too late.
Sarah Palin supporters have learned from our example. There is even a PINK Sarah Palin website already functioning. Recently, at an awful something website, joy and paranoia mingled as usual. The Pink Palin website was somehow our doing and there was this: “when I read “was” in this post I was overjoyed because I thought it meant hillaryis44 was dead.” Not quite. We are in Winter quarters.
But even at that simply awful website, the Obama Hopium guzzlers are in retreat. Even there the NObama coalition is growing and mocking the Obama Hopium guzzlers who own Obama but are now seeking absolution to expiate their sins.
The Sarah Palin supporters (especially those she has publicly acknowledged) have a lot to learn from the Hillary Clinton campaign and Sarah Palin with her kind words about Hillary certainly understands the lessons we and Hillary have to teach. But Hillary has a lesson she can learn from Sarah Palin.
One of the most important 2012 preparations is the Sarah Palin book tour and a recent appearance by Palin on a Big Media late night comedy show.
Recall that the Palin book tour was ceaselessly mocked by Big Media “personalities”. On the NBC “Tonight Show” the beatings took place at least once a week:
Sarah Palin recorded a surprise appearance tonight on the Tonight Show, which has lately featured the actor William Shatner reading passages of her memoir and her Facebook postings.
In the segment airing tonight, Palin walks on at the conclusion of Shatner’s mockery — and reads from Shatner’s own autobiography, I’m told.
UPDATE: Palin did indeed emerge, saying “I’m doing great, and I thought Bill did a great job, wonderful job.”
“It’s only appropriate then,” she said, “that I read a few choice excerpts from Mr. Shatner’s autobiography.” Behind her, a bassist, bongo player and flautist as she recited from “Up Till Now: The Autobiography”:
“As I finished Mr. Tambourine Man, I glanced over at Johnny Carson, who had a look of astonishment on his face, vaguely similar to the look on Spock’s face when his brain was missing.”
And the highlight:
“I felt so alive. My whole being resonated with the incredible feeling that I was going to visit with an elephant on a starlit moonless night in Africa. And I was going to visit that elephant in my underwear.”
Even the anti-Palin Ben Smith on the morning after had to concede:
Palin was, various Democrats emailed me, scary good on Tonight.
Sarah Palin is very popular with the Republican base and that alone can secure her the Republican nomination in 2012.
According to a new Fox poll–the first major poll on Palin since her book release and media blitz–a full 70 percent of Republicans view her favorably, while 21 percent view her unfavorably. Huckabee, meanwhile, collects 63 percent favorable vs. 28 percent unfavorable; Romney gets 60 percent favorable vs. 20 percent unfavorable.
Sarah Palin, as a Republican, as a conservative, will hep all women, including Hillary Clinton in the fight against sexism and misogyny. The Democratic Party is now captive to misogynists such as Obama and Big Blog Boys but true Democrats are a tiny core that will continue to oppose misogyny and sexism with deeds.
Dimocrats will pretend to be against sexism and misogyny but it is all a fake from a fake party of fake principles and fake people. The fake women’s groups, along with gay groups and others are captives of the Dimocratic Party and not interested in their constituencies:
Sarah Palin’s complaint that Newsweek’s cover image this week was “sexist” and “a wee bit degrading” has drawn a notably muted response from the women’s rights groups who often serve as arbiters of the treatment of female public figures.
No prominent women’s groups leaped to Palin’s defense, and attempts to reach their leaders this morning drew nuanced responses that reflect their ambivalence at the fact that the nation’s highest-profile female politician is a social and economic conservative who — while describing herself as a feminist — leans heavily on traditional notions of motherhood and sex appeal when it suits her politically.
“It’s much more complicated than sexism,” said Marie Wilson, president of the White House Project, which focuses on putting women in elected office. “What the [Republican] Party was selling, and people were buying — and what the candidate colluded [in] — is what shows up in that Newsweek picture.”
“She winked at people, right?” said Wilson.
Palin “winked” and that is a crime not worthy of defense say the hypocrites. Sarah Palin and her supporters need to take on the hypocrites now and as often as necessary:
Palin isn’t going anywhere, however, and groups concerned about the image of women in public life seem likely to be grappling with her place in the spotlight for quite a while.
Some “left” blogs have been honorable and have defended Sarah Palin.
Hillary supporters and Sarah Palin supporters have interests in common. Neither of us should complain at the over-the-top fact checking of Palin’s books by an army of reporters. What we can and should all do is demand fact checks of Obama’s books. Here at Big Pink we have exposed the flim-flams and lies which pass unquestioned as “autobiographies”. Big Media should devote double the resources to fact-checking Obama’s fictitious books and his wife’s fictions as were devoted to fact-checking Palin, and Hillary.
The great lesson from Sarah Palin? Here it is in her own words:
We’ll keep setting the record straight, and we’ll keep reminding some in the media that Americans are very tired of their non-objective reporting. A great, recent post that accomplishes this is a Conservatives4Palin post. It’s got some nice fact checking included. As always, they did a great job holding some of the media accountable for spreading more misinformation and for making things up. You can read it here. Enjoy!
Sarah Palin is waging war on Big Media. Hillary Clinton, when she runs for public office will have to do the same.
Sarah Palin is correct that the new media environment means you can take on and beat Big Media.
In 2007 and 2008 Hillary Clinton lost to Big Media because the support systems were not in place and Big Media united to destroy her.
In the future, the Hillary support infrastructure is already in place and Hillary Clinton will be able to learn from Sarah Palin’s attacks on Big Media.
That is only fair. Sarah Palin has learned a great deal from Hillary Clinton. Now Hillary can learn this one lesson from Sarah Palin.
Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, both, must take on Big Media.
