Chris Matthews on Frank Bailey's book

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

This is too good not to share.

They do not talk about too much that has not already been revealed but their absolute joy at seeing the absolute insanity that is Sarah Palin is really fun to watch.

This is why I have been saying that this information is going to forever end her political aspirations.  It is not just the big things that it reveals, it is the small tidbits of how she handled polls, wrote letters to the editor using other people's names, and built her very own enemies list, on which yours truly held quite a high ranking, that tell people she is completely unfit to hold a political office.

That is the kind information that is gold to opposition researchers and that is impossible for a potential candidate to overcome.  The Palin-bots can spin, and spin until silk flies out of their asses, but they will NEVER repair the damage to Sarah Palin that this manuscript, and the books soon to come will do to it.



  1. I agree. It was actually a joy to watch. .....and I could finally find her foibles to be funny. It wasn't funny until it started falling apart.

  2. She who sows the wind shall reap the whirlwind.

    These people are rolling on the floor laughing their asses off at her. Got that Sarah? You're a JOKE. You're not God's chosen one. You can't just decide that you "want to lead the country" and it will happen. You are an ignorant, mentally deranged punch line.

    Oh, sweet day.

    God, are we lucky she and McCain didn't end up in the White House! I wonder what he (McCain) is thinking about all this...it's been covered on the MSNBC all afternoon...so much for the attorney trying to stop people from talking about the manuscript. It doesn't seem to be working!

  6. Bottom line, I still want to see her loose all her ill gotten gains as well as her being able to take up residence where there are bars over all the windows and doors and be kept there for a very long, looong time...

    Palin can run but she can't hide.
    Would somebody go over to the pee pool and see what all the pee-ers are saying?
    Gryphen, be sure to let us know when we can buy the book. Is Fox covering the Bailey manuscript? Palin's toast.

  8. And now she's lying again....


    I'm enjoying watching everything Palin fall apart. I'm especially enjoying it because she did it to herself. What an idiot.

  9. nswfm4:29 PM

    Maybe the leak was planned after all....I'll still buy the book and ask AKM for her autograph, but in a way, I'm glad people now have the emails, because they weren't getting out through the FOIA requests, like they should have been.

  10. Anonymous4:33 PM

    The great thing about Matthews enjoying the things in the book and making "fun" of the things revealed was that he had been such a admirer of her in the past- to the point that it would irritate the heck out of me that he was so deluded.

  11. FEDUP!!!4:34 PM

    I loved that interview. A bit disappointed that he kept on interrupting those two people in what they wanted to say, though.

    Definitely agree that Bailey should dump all the emails onto the Internet for everybody to see. Like that, they cannot be made to 'disappear'...

    And its the first time I've heard anyone outside the blogosphere finally call her delusional.

    She's definitely running now. The more she's laughed at the more entrenched and stupid she becomes.

    This is one of those put your feet up and have a cocktail moments. I've watched this three times . . . .

    I laughed my butt off at Chris's interviews tonight. I went over to sea4pee and they continue to insist that nobody is believing Frank's manuscript. Well, if just ONE thing he is stating is untrue, why isn't ms. twitty bitch filing a law suit? Because they are Palin's own e-mails that he is quoting. LOVE the hell out of this. Thanks Gryphen !

  15. Anonymous4:44 PM

    Quitter Sarah Palin doesn't sound presidential at all. She's an inept clown and no amount of PR can make her into a serious contender. All she's good for is bilking donations from deceived stooges, making up (and then believing) her own supportive press, and using family members to promote herself. Alaska's even in the process of un-doing the bad legislation she passed here while "doing" the governorship for a couple years.

    I wish we'd never heard of this wacko.

  16. laprofesora4:44 PM

    From the sound of the emails that have been referenced, nothing appears to qualify as confidential. So why all the hesitancy to release them?

    Even though we haven't heard anything criminal, it's a joy to hear her petty vindictiveness revealed for the world to see. There's NO spinning this, Scarah you skank.

    I recall reading an article about the polls involving Sarah and it was admitted that they polled 500 people from Wasilla in order to get that 80% favorable rating. Then within a day that article was GONE because it proved her 80% was all bullshit. I am glad this book will address that and other polls they fudged. Among many other things of course.

    Stress will often cause ones hair to fall out. I'm thinking Palin will be bald within a few days. LOL

    The part I like best is how she argued with her support staff that Mittens name was "Milt" Romney.

    Oh, it feels so good to be laughing at this woman and not aghast at her hateful rhetoric.

    Thank you Frank Bailey and Jeanne!!

    Yes, your book will sell quite nicely. Every politician in D.C. will want to have a copy on their bedside table.

  22. Anonymous5:04 PM

    That seems to be the situation for sure - it seems like we not need a big bombshell to rid ourselves of the creepy possibility of this farce ever becoming president. It's the trickle of her true character that slowly oozes out from the corners of the facade she tries to put up in front of the public. She just can't hide who she truly is. Not that I wouldn't mind a bombshell, something to bring her down hard and fast. Maybe what I'm sensing is indeed a dam that's about to break. But broken dam or not, more than enough of the public can see her true colors now. Her chances of every getting anywhere close to office are now toast.


  23. Hey Gryph,

    With no expectation of you revealing something you shouldn't, can you say if you think the e-mail content provided in the MS would pose any sort of legal challenge? Copyright infringement, improper use, AK ethics violation?

    I'll understand if you say you can't. But will appreciate anything you can say.

    Chris Matthews Compares Sarah Palin To Gaddafi: “She Just Doesn’t Know The World Around Her”

    Matthews, clearly enjoying the conversation, described the segment as the “candy” of the evening. Tucker agreed and said “I love the fact that this woman is so confident in her ignorance.” In the final moments, after all had a good laugh, Matthews allowed each an opportunity to provide a parting shot at the Mama Grizzly with their answer to his question of whether Palin would be running for President. Tucker adamantly said no, concluding “she’s damaged goods.” Corn waffled a bit, saying “I thought she wouldn’t but then – everytime I read about her, she seems so self-centered that I don’t know how she could pass up this opportunity.”

    Beck To The Media: How Can You Possibly Deny What I’m Saying At This Point?

    Here’s what he had to say when he really got on a roll about the media:

    “It is difficult to deny at this point, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Is it a little hard to deny that radicals, Islamicists, Communists, Socialists will work together against Israel, against Capitalism, and they’ll try to work together to overturn stability? Who in the media is telling you this? Who? Name them! Where are they? How can they possibly deny it at this point? And why wouldn’t they tell you these things? Why?”

    It wasn’t just the media that was lying to people. It was all the leaders that are working towards a New World Order. Beck wanted to know what this new order actually was. He guessed that people wouldn’t spell it out because they know you, the American people, wouldn’t like it. He then listed all the possibilities that it could be (none of them were very good). And, in the end, he asked President Obama why he wouldn’t stand against these people.

    Today’s episode fits the same theme as the past few Glenn Beck shows: “they all said I was crazy but, look around. I’m right.” However, this one didn’t have much of the smugness that’s dominated his performance the past few evenings. No, today Beck was very, very angry.

    I think C Matthews is the worst kind of journalist. I remember when he called GWB so presidential and talked about how he sent a tingle up his leg. Then when Palin came on the scene, he was AGAIN smitten and made a total fool of himself blathering about her.. In both cases, he backed off TOO LATE. He doesn't have critical thinking skills.He is an arrogant, blustering fool. dDsgusting.

    It makes me think how STUPID it is of us to even LISTEN to these talking heads. WHO of us didn't KNOW about GWB and SP before CM did. Yes.I thought so.

    Remember how Sarah bristled (not Bristol) at going on David Letterman's show? She kept saying she wasn't going to give his show the 'ratings.'

    Now, it is true that whatever she Tweets or FB posts on, get's caught on video or Fox News on or speechify's on, get's mad Google and Youtube hits - but the idea that she believes she is such ratings gold because of her 'quality' as a leader or person of interest rather than morbid curiosity, is astounding.

    Sarah, we now know, you aren't as popular as you desire. You, your kids, mom, dad, Todd, sisters, brother, in-laws, nieces and nephews and your followers have so many other alter-ego's floating around out there to progress your numbers. I'll bet Trig and Tripp have even penned letters to the editor for you.

    I guess everybody is going to go ahead and screw these three authors over until they each individually get a personalized C&D.

    Doesn't say much for professional respect does it?

    Nor does it say much for the total lack of respect for the bloggers who worked outside of the spot lights and big salaries who did the work that the "stars," people like Mathews, and sites, like HuffPo, and businesses, like ADN are showing when they are releasing, with such ease, other's work when they know they are taking money out of the handsof those who created the mss and did thework.

    They had to know that when the material was released by some source other than the author, agent or publisher that it was not legitimately released.

    Since Palin is a Fox News commentator, doesn't that make the news station look stupid for hiring her? When their contract with her ends, or she is forced to resign, or she quits, there may be more tell-all "blind allegiance" books, coming from Fox insiders!

    I notice Chris didn't quote the authors' words; he quoted the emails. These are emails that should have been released by the state of Alaska TWO YEARS ago. Frank can't copyright those.

    I can understand Bailey wanting his revenge, or his money, or whatever. But if he honestly wants redemption, then release the 60,000 emails already. This isn't about Ken or Jeanne or Franks' precious words and analysis. It's about the emails.

    I wonder if a manuscript has been forwarded to President Obama and John McCain.

    I hope the McCain gets his ass kicked back there in D.C. with chiding from other Congressmen and women. His bringing her on the scene was ridiculous....think of all the time we've wasted talking about her these past few years.

    Plus, she has brought nothing but embarrassment to Alaska and Alaskans. People think we were idiots to elect her as 'quitter governor'.

  61. I'm not normally a fan of Chris Matthews, it drives me crazy that he constantly interrupts people, but his absolute joy at the hilarity of this story was contagious!

  62. The only reason SP is not like Gaddafi is she does not have a military or secret police to go after people. Remember she set up a system of sycophants and protection in Alaska. She will use whatever power is available to her for her agenda. I love this video because it shows they are starting to-get it. I however do not hold Bailey in high esteem, he harmed Alaska and many people through the incompetent and corrupt appointments he made to boards and agencies. If the emails were offered to help save the country from Palin and her ilk it would have meant something, but clearly this project is all about profit. It will take a lot of time for Alaska to recover. He knew what was going on when he was working under Palin and condoned much of it. I am glad the information is coming out and will read the book however. I also find it hypocritical to be upset that one book is leaked after being gleeful that someone else's book was leaked, but that‘s just me.

    The piece that is missing here for me is why the authors let all this stuff out of their hands to begin with and ended up with everything out of control. Who just turns loose of an entire manuscript with no protections in place? I admit I don't know what the usual procedure is for securing a publisher and so forth, but shouldn't there have been a little commonsense conservatism in there somewhere?

    It's been said before.

    Sarah Palin is the biggest hoax in US political history.

    The real question is this: what did McCain, the RNC and other Republicans know and when did they know it.

    They have shamed America.

  72. I wonder how many Cee of Pee comments are really from fake Sarah Palin & her family accounts.

    It is delightful to watch her house of cards come tumbling down - but I still want to see her in an orange jumpsuit if possible. And hopefully one of these days we will know how the heck that manuscript got leaked and why...however I don't think the leak will hurt sales - but most likely will help the chances that it gets a publisher.

    Her announcement to run would have to come very soon ... one guess is that someone leaked the manuscript now to make sure that never happened (just in case she won the nomination to be the Republican candidate or a third party candidate and split the GOP vote). It takes months and months for a book to get published and on the shelves - so even if they had found a publisher immediately, it would not have been out in time to stop her from the having the slim possibility of running. As amusing as that would have been - it would have been terribly destructive for our country. (But with her hubris she may still try and run - who knows.) So perhaps someone leaked it to either prevent that damage or to boost a more qualified GOP candiate or both.

    Here in NJ we have our hands full with our insane Govenor - it is just mind boggling to me how he ever got elected and sickening to see him becoming a "hero" to the GOP.

    Would love it if Stewart and Colbert had an annual "sanity rally" - we could all use it.
