I Didn’t Know The FSM Loved TBogg This Much…

Or me, for that matter.  What fun we will have:

Fox News contributor and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be launching her own digital video channel, tentatively called “Rogue TV,” a source familiar with the project told Capital….



Palin’s channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues….

“Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” the source said….


I have to hear that again:

“Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” the source said….

Oh joy! Oh rapture!  Television history in the making.

It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin.

My mom always told me that if I didn’t have anything nice to say…

Oh hell. Why not.  Quick folks, tell me true: who among you wants to take parenting advice from Sarah freaking Palin, that model of continence and … hell, you fill in that blank.

Recipes, maybe.  You never know.

Go read the all the hilarious goodness here.

BTW:  Palin will go Rogue on TAPP — which is an online TV service founded by MSM types so beloved of the former half-term can’t-hold-a-job ex-governor who will now be able to serve word salad (with a side of bile) via the intertubes.  That’s not exactly the penthouse of contemporary broadcasting.  Online video is  likely the way we’ll receive all our programming very soon.  But for now Palin on “Rogue TV” is kind of like Nickleback doing a gig at the local motorcycle shop.

On the upside, we’ll be able to get some more metrics on the true reach of Palin’s grift.  The article mentions it will cost $10/month to subscribe.  That’s real money.  Be interesting to see what Palin can actually draw at this point in her magnificent con.

And last — I’m so glad TBogg will have so much new material with which to give us all so much joy.

    Alas, we do. I recall a Greta van Susteren tongue bath of a piece — “at home in Wasilla with Governor Palin” or some such shit — in which Sarah was adorning a row of moose hot dogs with cubes of Velveeta while opining on what’s wrong with our culture. It will not surprise y’all to learn this complicated recipe was too much for Ms. Palin to follow while talking at the same time. She had to keep pausing the cube-dropping while she gathered her thoughts.

    This seems more of an open thread, so I’ll presume on Tom Levenson’s indulgence and repost this here.

    Speaking of loons (I’m sorry to be going off-topic, but I’ve waited for hours and there hasn’t been a new open thread) The Uri Geller is claiming he has been invited to join the search for MH370, by some “substantial figure” in Malaysia whom he won’t name. I suspect he was really invited by Uri Geller.

    Friends and family of MH370 First Officer Fariq Hamid dispute the Australian TV report that says he hit on female passengers. The friends and fam say Fariq is not like that at all, but rather a devout Muslim and a keen pilot.

    Extending the search into the Indian Ocean means taking it into really deep waters, as deep as 7km. So far the search has been confined to the South China Sea, atop Asia’s continental shelf; the Gulf of Thailand where MH370 disappeared is less than 100m deep.

    sharl says:

    @Gypsy Howell: Actually this question came up in comments at that TBogg link. Longtime (and very knowledgeable) commenter dsduryea addressed it over there:

    dsduryea –> Michael Bower

    From the Dictionary of Christianese:

    Older translations of the Bible use the word covet in a positive sense. For example, the King James Version of the bible (published over 400 years ago in 1611) says that Paul instructed the Corinthians to covet the spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. Back in 1611, the verb covet was just a neutral word that meant “to really want.”

    Michael Bower –> dsduryea

    Thanks dsduryea – I’m still not sure how that definition makes sense in the context of her word salad. “I’ll ask you to support the good guys, and we’ll all “really want” prayers for them”? Perhaps she means “we would ask for prayers for them” or “we would really appreciate prayers for them”? Trying to find the true meaning of a Palin statement is like pondering a koan. . .

    dsduryea –> Michael Bower

    covet prayer v. phr. To greatly desire the prayers of fellow Christians.
    This expression might seem strange because the Bible warns people not to covet. But in the KJV we read that Christians are to “covet earnestly the best gifts” (1 Corinthians 12:31) and “covet to prophesy” (1 Corinthians 14:39). So the expression simply uses an obsolete meaning of the verb covet which is “to strongly desire.”
    The expression is sometimes intensified with the adverb earnestly (see citations for 1781, 1866, 2011).
    Instead of “coveting” prayers, one can always “ask” for them; simply say that “prayers at this time would be appreciated.”
    • 1781 MacGowan Discourses on the Book of Ruth and Other Important Subjects xxii : I feel a total incapacity of standing one moment of myself, much more so if being of any the least use to my hearers, without a divine blessing. Therefore I earnestly request, yea, I even covet your prayers for me. 1866The Eng. Presbyterian Messenger 176 : We have never heard a single murmur from our missionaries in regard to salaries, but how earnestly do they covet the prayers and sympathies of our people! 1965Ward Fraser of Trinity and Achimota 319 : We covet the prayers of our friends and we give much time to prayer for them. 1975 Bryant The Morningside Man: A Biography of James Pickett Wesberry 150 : “I am looking forward to this as one of the most thrilling and interesting experiences of my life,” Jim told his congregation, “and I covet your prayers daily.” 1980 Coleman “The Language of ‘Born-Again’ Christianity” in Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society vol. 6 139 : Unique evangelical terms: … “covet” (in “I/We covet your prayers”) counts as a request for prayer.2011 Crosmun Legacy of Faith 161 : We earnestly covet your prayers, both for the place to which we are going, and for the work we are leaving behind.

    @Villago Delenda Est:

    Of course, the drooling idjits who constitute her fan base will pony up for it, sure as shit.

    I had a telemarketer/scam person call me on the phone to ask me to donate “one hundred to two hundred dollars”, not for SP’s re-election committee, but just to put my name on a petition to ask her to please run for Senate. It would admittedly be sweet to see her do that (popcorn!) but I’m not going to actually pay money for it.

    I kept him on the line for a long time while I said more and more terrible things, shockingly overtly racist and misgynist stuff. I wanted to see where he might demur and draw a line. Of course there was no rock bottom to hit. He just kept asking for smaller amounts of money while agreeing with me.

    Later I was relating this to 2 guys, it was meant to be an amusing story about punking a telemarketer, who very well could just be a pure scam artist and nothing to do with SP. They both freaked out because I was criticizing the wonderful SP and she could easily be elected to the Senate! I freaked out that they took her seriously, I knew they were righty but thought they took it more seriously. Apparently not.

    One of the guys was someone I was involved with long ago, and I always had a soft spot for him, still found him cute and funny despite being done with it decades ago. It was remarkable to me, I was looking at him in amazement over this BS and suddenly I realized he was some random ratty old man and not even cute anymore. Funny how it came over him all of a sudden!
