@MJosephSheppard → WashPost’s Richard Cohen, Still Debilitated By Palin Hysteria After 7 Years, Drives Logic To Her Knees

13 May 2015 @ 20:24


In an example of “logic” knocked, beaten up and reduced to a quivering heap, aged leftist Richard Cohen attacks Sarah Palin who 7 years ago was a VP candidate and has not held any office subsequently. There must be some explanation for the existence of what Kirsten Powers yesterday called a continuation of “2008 Palin hysteria.”

This madness has its ostensible basis in the Lefts numbed, then furious beyond comprehension, rage at Palin’s 2008 address to the GOP convention which was seen as threat (which it was) to their hero Obama’s previously easy march to the presidency. That mania which included the bizarre site Daily Kos and even more bizarre Andrew Sullivan’s campaign that Trig was somehow not her real son.

But for Palin to be continually attacked after seven year shows there is some deep psychological reason hidden in the leftist psyche which rationality cannot penetrate. It has been described as having Jewish and sexual driving factors which seems entirely rational, as the links will set out persuasively I believe.

What Cohen’s particular problem is I can’t say, it could of course be either of the foregoing, both, or neither i.e. some as yet unidentified cause for “Palin Obsession Syndrome.” However the root cause has manifested itself in a bizarre displacement attack on logic as well as Palin.

He voiced that Rush Limbaugh dared to criticize Michelle Obama for complaining that a major museum somehow by its very nature made Black children feel “unwelcome” and “alienated” and “there are kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this museum.”

Of course in what alternate universe does the Whitney Museum set out to make Black, red, yellow brown or any other shade of pigment children “alienated” certainly not in this planet. There is nothing on earth, apart from a lack of education, parental guidance or innate inquisitiveness, to stop any child of whatever race religion or whatever from wandering around a museum. The idea that there is, or was, outside of perhaps the Jim Crow South, any impediment is ludicrous. I grew up in a very poor Jewish family (and there were real anti-Jewish restrictions from WASP social clubs then) but still spent untold days in the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan’s West Side which instilled in me a curiosity for the natural world.

Not content with leaving logic gasping for breath Cohen manages to blend his attack on Limbaugh with an attack on a totally innocent bystander- Sarah Palin! How he manages this is quite a display of pretzel bending and long bow shooting.

This is hardly the first time Michelle Obama has come under attack from white critics who infer — think about it — that she has no right being black. Sarah Palin did not like it when Obama celebrated her husband’s early success in the 2008 primaries by saying, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” Sarah Palin, as far as I know, did not have a great-great-grandfather who was a slave. It makes a difference.


Let me try and show the absurdity of that sentence by making one of my own based on the same “logic”:

Michelle Obama has no right to attack Richard Cohen (remember this is anti-logic world) because, as far as I know she does not have a great-great-grandfather who was a victim of the Tsar.

Incidentally, I can, with this logic, attack Cohen at will as I had a great-great -grandparent who was such a victim (as “as far as I know” so did Cohen.)

So by Cohen’s lib anti-Palin residual hysteria logic, the only people who can take issue with someone else’s words are people who had some ancient lineage of oppression. That would allow a person of Scot’s descent to attack a person of English descent if the former can find a distant ancestor who was booted out in the Highland clearances. Or an Anglo Saxon Englishman, whose long gone ancestor was killed at Hastings by the Norman French, to attack someone of that descent and etc. redutio ad absurdum.

The sad, tail end of Obama worship has in its dregs the pitiful sting of Palin hysteria with only the adamantine Black community, a few leftist Jews and the original “JournOlist” leftist media pack still clinging on to their forlorn memories of “Hope and Change.”

    Richard Cohen…never heard of the fellow. Must be of little importance.
    Just another sexist comment by a leftist “war on women” promoter.

    Well…Sheppard, men like you who put palin on a pedestal and have made her a multi millionaire do it because of something sexual. As for the rest of your nonsense, Michelle Obama has the right to speak of her feelings and experiences of which YOU WOULD KNOW NOTHING ABOUT being a aging balding WHITE man. Blechhhh, palin is history, yet it seems you spend all your waking hours thinking about her.

      What ‘experiences’ exactly, Anonymous ?

      She grew up in a middle class family in Chicago , where her father, a well connected Chicago ward leader – Michelle used to babysit as a teenager for Jesse Jackson – got a sinecure in the form of a cushy city job from the Democrat machine.and she was jumped ahead of the line in order to get into Whitney Young, a public magnet school that caters to Chicago’s upper strata.

      She got into Princeton solely because they wanted her brother to play basketball for them and she was part of the deal, even though her rant against ‘racism’ in her college thesis reveals mistakes in spelling and grammar a 10th grader might have been embarrassed to make.

      After she married B.O., they were doing well enough that after they married, they were able to purchase a then pricey $277,500 two-bedroom condo in a good neighborhood in Chicago in 1993.

      After Barack Obama entered politics and got elected to the Illinois State Legislature, things got even better. Michelle Obama’s law license was revoked by the Illinois State Bar for reasons that have yet to be disclosed, but State Senator Barack Obama and Michelle’s own Chicago connections enabled her to get what amounted to a cushy no-show job at a salary of $121,910 as ‘Vice President in Charge of Community Relations’ with Chicago University Hospital.

      That salary leapfrogged to $316,962 for the same job when Barack Obama became a senator in 2005, and just coincidentally, one of Senator Obama’s first acts in office was to see to it that the hospital received over a million dollars of your tax dollars as an earmark.And she received that salary during the entire time she was campaigning with Obama for not working at the job at all.

      That job of ‘Vice President in Charge of Community Relations’ was so vital that after she moved to the White House, the hospital eliminated it.

      So Mooch-elle’s entire life has been one of living the good life on other people’s taxes. i would welcome her speaking honestly about how it feels to be a leech on the rest of us, ut not her nonsense about how she’s a poor, oppressed lil’ black girl.

    Go back to the vipers nest at :”Immoral Minority” with all the other bonkers “Trig Truthers-maybe you can find all the spare “Trigs” Palin keeps hidden while waiting for the”iceberg” to hit after 7 years-you are utterly stark raving nuts.
    NB Make a list of famous bald men starting with Eisenhower-you are too stupid to know it’s caused by brains pushing through the top of ones head.

    I found/find the Left’s apoplexy regarding Sarah Palin to be extraordinarily fascinating. I came to the conclusion that they hate her because she puts the lie to everything they’ve maintained about women for 30 years. Add in the fact that she is much the “Happy Warrior” in her dealings with the Left and you have the reason she still drives them nuts today.
