Mad Magazine's take on Sarah Palin's attempt at "infiltrating some turf" on the Today Show.

Get a load of this description, from the magazine that had me giggling all through my adolescence:

When ABC announced that Katie Couric would be filling in as co-anchor on Good Morning America, the producers of The Today Show knew they had to do something big to counter-program. And they did! Unfortunately, they did something big and stupid, bringing in unqualified V.P. candidate, half-term Alaska governor and intellectual feather-weight Sarah Palin to co-host. Is this bad, desperate TV? You betcha!

I could not have said it better myself!

By the way, could the Today Show now be starting to feel the effects of the "Palin curse?" Maybe.

In what has become one of the most closely watched ratings battles ever, ABC’s Good Morning America with guest host Katie Couric edged Couric’s former show, NBC’s Today, for the first time. On Wednesday, Good Morning America drew 5.236 million total viewers, to Today’s 5.149 million. 

When will people ever learn?  Sure she may get you so some initial attention, but in the long run being associated with Sarah Palin is like going skinny dipping with an anchor around your neck.

The only place you are going is down.  And fast!

    So funny! Lame Change, well she is a member of the Lame Stream Media afterall! When I saw those Wednesday Ratings yeaterday I immediately thought, "well it looks like their stupid idea to use Palin back fired on them." I guess a lot of people did not like Sarah Palin on Tuesday because the very next day enough of them switched over to ABC to give GMA more total viewers. Palin was such a "hit" the viewers made a conscious effort to change over to Katie asap!! Network Change!!

    I watch the Today show when I'm not working precisely because it is light fluffy, and apolitical . If I want to watch a blowhard conservative give his opinion for 3 hours, I'll watch Morning Joe.
    Sarah's brand of screechy "conservatism" has no place on morning has to be at least noon, before I can listen to that voice, when it is socially acceptable to drink alcohol.

    This review is from: Boys Will Be Boys: Media, Morality, and the Coverup of the Todd Palin Shailey Tripp Sex Scandal (Volume 1) (Paperback)

    I have only read the first four chapters. I can only take this book in small doses; it's so brutally honest and disturbing. Shailey Tripp is a woman who has been down a difficult road in life and who by her own admission has made regrettable mistakes. I am not here to judge some of the poor decisions she has made, but I will pass judgement on those despicable men who took advantage of a single mother who was obviously in a financially vulnerable position. Ms. Tripp shares personal details of her sexual encounters with Todd Palin....details that are too explicit not to believe. And she includes copies of the email exchanges with Palin. Todd Palin should be investigated and brought up on charges of sex trafficking. What gives, Alaska? Is there an Alaskan Mafia that controls that state?

      I've often wondered why Todd never got in trouble and I think there must be a something like an Alaskan mafia - or that the place is just so corrupt and the Palins are at the top of the chain. Todd Palin is a pimp that no one will prosecute. And why on earth did they name that baby after Shailey?

    When will people learn that Sarah Palin is a con artist?

    Her daughter Bristol is the same animal as Sarah who went around conning and making money off of families by playing the Born Again Virgin on her Abstinence Tour while jumping from bed to bed of boys (Levi,Ben, Gino, Masey Brothers and Lord knows who else) and now the scammer Bristol who claims to have Christian family values who is too busy to go to church will be living with Mercedes Johnston's leftover in what Bristol calls a "Trial Marriage".

    Sarah Palin should (not) be proud of what she produced from her dysfunctional family.

    What do you really expect from Bristol? She is the product of her father Todd the pimp and Sarah who is a sorry excuse for a mother and human being!

    Sarah Palin, as we both know you read this blog and we both know you have read my book, why the silence? For me you are now just as guilty as your husband who we both know has a temper and a quick tongue......yet he is silent, just like the media has gone silent. Sarah Palin in your mean spirited way you have already referred to me four times on television since Sept of 2011, giving the public and the media plenty of room to open up the discussions about me or about my accusations or about me and your husband or about me giving you a massage. Yet, the media remains silent. Even you and todd are silent. Why are you of all people letting people shut you up? I thought you were a rogue, your own person, someone who does not play by the rules but your own rules. Perhaps you are now part of the lamestream media? Perhaps you sold out and someone is paying for your silence? Perhaps it is more lucrative for you to not talk about it? Perhaps you are confused as to who I am or why I am speaking out. So let me tell you who I am.

    Comment from Shailey Tripp's blog:

    Go Shailey! I'm proud of you for taking a stand. Sarah and Todd have treated you and others like pieces of dirt. They use and discard people as if they are nothing. Then Sarah has the gall to talk about Faith as if she is a Christian.
    Here is the problem though. Sarah is a sociopath and a narcissist. Unlike you, she has no conscience. She is incapable of self-reflection. It's really hard to understand people like this. I really don't think they care about anyone but themselves.
    So I don't have high hopes for her dealing with this or any other terrible thing she has done honestly. She is incapable of that.
    I don't know what it will take for the media to look into your story. It must be frustrating for you. It infuriates me. All I can say is keep fighting and stay strong. You are the better person in all of this. You have a heart! You have an ability to look inward and to admit past mistakes. You are working always on being a better person. This is all because you do have conscience and you are emotionally more evolved than Sarah.
    I really think she is a terrible human being and she will be exposed. It's just a matter of time. Todd is a user and a bully. Who knows how he really has treated Sarah. There is abuse in that family. You can see it through Sarsgs words and actions.
    Just keep talking and don't give up. I'm sorry this has been so tough. I admire you for many many reasons and I believe that e entuallt all of this will come out and Todd and Sarah will both be held accountable.....

    Sarah Palin says Levi Johnston is a LIAR -- We've NEVER Hidden Tripp

    Mama Grizzly is clawing back at Levi Johnston ... claiming Bristol Palin's baby daddy straight up LIED when he claimed her family has been actively trying to block Levi from seeing his son, Tripp.

    Sarah and Todd Palin have issued a statement to TMZ ... saying, "We have never hidden Tripp from Levi or discouraged Levi from spending time with him. Any suggestion that we have is false and contrary to our core beliefs."

    The Palins add, "The last time either of us recall a conversation with Levi was in the summer of 2010 when Levi sat down at our house with us and personally apologized about lies he told to the media about our family. Neither of us have talked to him since that day."

    The Palins are referring to the statements Levi made on "TMZ Live" this week ... when he accused the entire Palin clan of hatching a diabolical plan to keep him away from Tripp ... and said Sarah is the one pulling the strings.

    But the Palins say Levi is full of moose droppings ... telling us, "We are disappointed that he continues to tell falsehoods about us to garner media attention. We encourage Levi and all non-custodial fathers to be fully engaged and to positively and fully participate in their children's lives. This includes not making misstatements about his child's grandparents."

    1. Anonymous5:55 AM

      So Sarah, Who is the fairest of them all? Er, so, taking the younger Trip to LA and Arizona was solely for the purpose of making it easier for Levi to see him?

      Why isn't she the one to make a statement to TMZ regarding her parents?

      Don't they want us to believe Grams and Gramps are not involved?

      Bristol is either independent and dealing with Tripp's father and the spokesperson for the family in all Tripp matters.


      I am favoring the Stockholm theory for Bristol. If I was in a situation similar, I would say to parents stay out of this and I would make a statement for the family standing up for them. BRISTOL, KEEP YOUR PARENTS OUT OF THIS.

      For Bristol to stay hidden only verifies that the PALINS ARE THE LIARS HERE.

      Did Sarah get paid by TMZ for the 'leak'? If so, could that be the reason why the 'story' came from Sarah rather than from Bristol? Does Sarah (and not just Bristol) see Tripp as HER OWN personal money-making machine? If Sarah's contract with Fox is due to expire, PAC funds are drying up, and there is no political future for her, what will her next money-making ploy consist of (beyond a few speeches)?

      Bristol was going all mogley with a cactus in Arizona, then went to hollywood to be on "Groaning on the floor with the stars", then moved to el lay, to star in her oreo cookie reality show with the Masseys. So how's Levi going to YOUR home going to help him see Tripp? Bullshit, Sarah

      There, tmz, I fixed it for ya. Tripp is Levi and Bristol's kid, not Sarah and Todds, why is she yapping and making excuses for Bristol being a control freak?

    The astonishing comments left on the Today Show after her appearance there were absolutely disgusted, and viewer after viewer said after year of watching NBC, no more!

    Her looks have dramatically changed, she looks haggard and old; her views and statements haven't changed, they're nasty, disrespectful and shallow, her 'credentials' as great mother of wonderful, virtuous kids and great wife with devoted, faithful husband are revealed as delusional fiction.

    'Good Morning America' Wins Wednesday Ratings War With 'Today'

    Wednesday brought good news for "Good Morning America."

    The ABC show won the third day of this week's morning show ratings wars — its first win of the intensively hyped battle between Katie Couric and her former colleagues on "Today."

    "GMA" drew 5.236 million total viewers, while "Today" was watched by 5.149 million viewers. That's a gap of 87,000 viewers.

    With the win, "GMA" has an outside shot at beating "Today" in weekly ratings for the first time in 16 years. It would have to win both Thursday and Friday to accomplish the feat.

    "The Sound and Fury of Sarah Palin" takes a look at the conservative response to Palin since she burst onto the national stage as John McCain's running mate in 2008.

    ...Lamb concedes that for a demagogue to have an impact on a society there has to be an existing undercurrent of what he calls hysteria for that person to exploit.

    "I just take someone like that, I guess it's kind of like crab grass or something like that, if you don't put the stuff on them the crab grass will keep growing, and I just think she's, actually she's worse than crab grass," Lamb said. "McCain would not have brought that on. And I just think it was a lot of things. It was the idea that the economy fell apart, it was the idea of Obama, a black man running for president, I think brought out some of the deep-seated feelings, but I think she coalesced that mob and brought them together. I'm not sure anyone else could have created this hysteria that she did."

    Though he identifies himself as a left-leaning moderate, Lamb said many of his conservative friends with which he discusses politics have declared their own independence from the Republican Party largely due to disappointment with the George W. Bush Presidency and the growing anti-intellectualism of the GOP that he said came to the fore with Palin's emergence.

    Lamb says Palin had a direct influence the way this year's Republican Presidential Primary contests have played out.

    "I think the chaos of the Republican Primaries, this absolute dysfunction of the Republican Primaries, this food fight, whatever metaphors you want to use are a direct result of Sarah Palin," he said. "I'm not sure there would have been a Tea Party without Sarah Palin. This idea somehow that screaming awful things and ruining lives and attacking people for being Muslims when it's clearly they're not, and then sicking us on the Muslims, that's Sarah Palin.

    "I just think that this madness is a direct result of what Palin brought to the campaign trail in 2008," he continued. "What you have with Palin is this idea of accusing Obama of being unpatriotic and yet you have Palin embracing the Alaska Independence Party, which wants to secede from the Union, you have all these incredible contradictions, and she doesn't seem to make any attempt to reconcile this."

    Lamb's book is an alarm bell for the GOP, he said, to expel the "kooks" from its midst.

    ‘Born-Again-Virgin’ Bristol Palin To Shack Up With Cool Boyfriend, Renames It ‘Trial Marriage’

    It must be hard to be Bristol Palin. First you barely escape your shotgun wedding to cool-guy sperm-trust Levi Johnston. Then you are forced to keep constantly being on terrible “reality television” programs. Then you must start a ghostwritten blog to yell at President Obama for not standing up for you against mean comedians, even though when you were first knocked up he called clearly for people to respect you and compared you to his own teenage mama. And then to keep all the abstinence-speech money flowing you have to shack up with your fat skeezy greasy boyfriend and call it, in reframing language that must have come straight from Frank Luntz, a “trial marriage.” That, plus the ladies on The View — even the super braintrusty ones! — think you are an idiot and a liar. (But don’t worry, they are mostly Jews and blahs.)

    The ladies on The View should have had Levi Johnston’s sister Mercede on to talk about this, since Bristol Palin’s terrible greasy boyfriend, Gino Paoletti, is Mercede’s ex. Ugh Wasilla. Remember when you were a young hot-to-trot lady and watched Northern Exposure and thought “I could move to Alaska and be the pretty girl with the mole and there would be tons of cute blue-collar dudes, plus John Corbett, and the Jewy one”? Yeah, Alaska is really just Levi and Gino, plus 350,000 more of them.

    However, personally, I just wish something would happen so that the truth about this woman and her family would come out and then they would just shut up and go away. So tired of seeing her and hearing the nonsense she spews. It's so darn obvious she simply wants money/attention at this point. Just shut up already.

  31. Anonymous9:44 AM

    The vast majority of faithful Today viewers had no idea Palin was on Tuesday. People have busy lives and don't follow the day to day ups and downs in the political world. They simply tuned into their favorite show on Tuesday, saw Palin on there, and as a result some of them abandoned NBC the following morning. I would be interested to see the Tuesday ratings as the hours passed. I bet they continued to drop each time Palin was on the screen. What she doesn't get is that it's not because Americans don't like her political views, it's because they don't like HER, and there's nothing she can do to change that at this point.

    If after the 2008 campaign she grew as a person, took responsibility for accepting a position she wasn't ready for, reached out to the Democrats in Alaska and Alaskans in general who felt abandoned, and let go of her bitterness and anger over the humiliating spanking Obama gave her, she would be well thought of by most Americans now. She's not hated by the public because of 2008. It's because of how she's acted every day and every moment since then.

      Everything in your second paragraph is true. I personally was afraid that Palin would go back to AK, govern, study, run another term, study, and come back as a real force to be reckoned with.

      Little did I Know that Palin was out running the boulder of lies, ineptness and illegal activities that were the cornerstone of her administration.

    After watching the Today Show every morning for over twenty years, I've been watching GMA all week.

    You fail to mention that for the past week or 2, GMA had been creepying on TODAYS's numbers.

    To first time readers and to Sarah Palin, after reading what Ms Shailey has posted do you think she is lying? Do you think Ms Shailey is playing games?

    You are a fool if you think she is. Ms Shailey wrote a book about her ordeal and is publicly stating her case. Ms Shailey has nothing to hide and is daring and waiting for a response from the Palins. The media should take note there is not a single word from the Palins to deny Ms Shailey's accounts of her relationship with Todd.

    The reasons why the Palins are quiet about Todd Palin's pimping career:
    1. The Palin does not want to piss off Ms Shailey.
    2. Ms Shailey has proof.
    3. The Palins are hoping by not saying nothing that the story and Ms Shailey will go away.

    News for the Palins..... Ms Shailey don't play and Ms Shailey is not going away.

    Bristol is just like her mother. When Bristol says anything you just have to think the opposite.

    Bristol will not have sex until married.
    Bristol is through with reality tv.
    Bristol is going to college in Arizona.
    Bristol did not get cosmetic surgery.
    And don’t forget the big lie “Levi raped me” only to go back and change her story.

    Makes you wonder if it is true if Levi is Tripp’s father?

    Does Bristol know who is Tripp’s father.

    Didn’t Ben wonder if he was Tripp’s father?

    DId you look at the Today Show's Twitter Page. All their loyal viewers said they were ditching them because they had Sarah on their show. Looks like they did just that on Wednesday.

    Sorry, I meant Facebook page.

    My brother used to read MAD magazine and I have to admit, it's pretty funny stuff. I always loved "Spy vs Spy".

    Their Take on Sarah and the Today show is about right.

    My neighbor came up with a pretty good point, a lot of times the public perceives animosity between show actors, but often times, they're actually friendly in real life. You don't work side by side for years and abandon all friendships because your careers change. She bets, and I kind of agree, that Matt called Katie privately and they made fun of the Johnny Cash impostor.
    Even Ann Curry looked annoyed, which is unusual. She kept slowly nodding her head as Sarah yakked away like she didn't believe any of it and was trying to stay awake.

    And to know that the Levi story immediately hit her alerts when she turned her phone on afterwards -

    Priceless ;o)

    I wonder if Palin is aware that Katie has a multi-million dollar contract for her new show?

    This will really make her head explode.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
