Who’s supposed to keep us up to speed on Bristol Palin’s celibate love life?
Moving on! Bristol Palin's devout Christian boyfriend divorced his wife of less than a year just three months before the mother-of-three made their new relationship Instagram official
Bristol's new boyfriend Janson Moore, 24, filed for divorce from his wife Makenzie Housenfluck, 25, in May after 11 months of marriage
The former couple finalized their divorce in August, three months before Bristol, 29, posted a photo of herself posing with him at a Texas A&M football game
Bristol was only married to her ex-husband Dakota Meyer for two years before they divorced in 2018 after welcoming daughters Sailor, three, and Atlee, two
Before her marriage and subsequent divorce, she was briefly engaged to Levi Johnston, 29, with whom she shares a 10-year-old son Tripp
Bristol's parents, Sarah and Todd Palin, are currently going through a divorce but reunited on Monday to celebrate the birth of their daughter Willow's twin girls

What a tangled web we weave,
when we go outside marriage in order to conceive.

Please dont call them phoney
Its just that they conceive in ways baloney.

Alcohol is their way to salvation
as it takes them from a 2 to 11.

I saw a tweet somewhere a couple weeks ago that pointed out how unkind the last 11 years have been to Sarah Palin. In 2008, she was a superstar in the making. Now she's an answer to a trivia question.

In a universe with so much injustice, we have to enjoy the small, delicious morsels of justice when we can.

I wonder if she'll ever forgive Donald Trump for stealing her entire shtick as the darling of the hypocritical right-wing evangelical moralizer crowd?

Sailor. It's customary for a Palin to name its offspring in a way somehow connected to the conception. Have any sailors or ex-sailors lurking here ever seen Bristol crawling through the bars in Subic Bay?

I still recall getting into a discussion with a coworker around October 1968 2008 about Sarah Palin. He was a smart guy but a Republican. He tried to tell me Palin was more qualified on her record than Obama to hold office. I told him he was smarter than that. Recently I emailed him to tell him I still remembered that conversation and how stupid a statement that was. I know he is probably a Trump supporter so I wanted to poke him on that too.

I am confident that Sarah Palin had indeed done great things by the time she was four and a half years old.

Judge rules that Sarah Palin can't seek advertising revenue the NY Times made from an editorial linking her to mass shootings as part of her defamation lawsuit: "Palin is attempting to obtain an additional remedy that bears no relation to the injury she suffered."

Put another way, Palin is attempting to obtain an additional remedy that bears no relation to the injury she suffered, because she does not claim that she would have been entitled to receive a portion of The Times' advertising revenues if she had not been defamed. See Defs. Mem. 4.

For these reasons, the Court grants the defendants' motion for partial judgment on the pleadings dismissing Palin's claim for disgorgement damages.

I don't watch much network tv and when I first heard of the Masked Singer, during the Superbowl, I assumed it was one of those wacky Superbowl commercials. I was assured it was not.

Now I find that Sarah Palin was one of the singers.

I stand by my original assumption.

It's actually one of the few shows that Dawn and I watch together. We watch it on the weekends, usually, so try not to find out who is eliminated, etc. But just to give you an idea of some of the talent they have had: This season alone they have had Chaka Khan and Dionne Warwick. Last season, Patti LaBelle was a contestant.

It's fun to watch and try to figure out who the voices are when they are singing. Wayne Brady won Season 2. T-Pain (a rapper) won Season 1. He's a surprisingly good singer.

I stand corrected. In my defense, my first exposure to a singer from the show was Sarah Palin.

THR: Sarah Palin Gets Libel Trial Against New York Times:
A federal judge rejects the paper's summary judgment motion and sets a trial for February.

Sarah Palin will proceed to trial against The New York Times next February, pandemic permitting. On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Jed Rakoff rejected the paper's summary judgment motion in a big libel case over an editorial about gun violence. The New York federal judge concludes that she had provided enough evidence to establish actual malice on the part of the paper's former op/ed chief.

The editorial linked one of Palin's political action committee ads to a 2011 mass shooting that severely wounded then-Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. James Bennet, the writer of the editorial, wanted to make a point about a climate of political incitement, but The New York Times quickly made a correction acknowledging that no link had been established between Palin's ad and the shooting.

* * *

Rakoff had previously dismissed the suit in Aug. 2017, writing at the time that "in the exercise of that freedom, mistakes will be made, some of which will be hurtful to others."

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals then revived the case based on Rakoff's rash conclusion that Palin couldn't establish actual malice.

Back at the lower court, Palin aimed for something even greater than a win against The New York Times. She aimed to basically upend a half century of jurisprudence in libel cases by overthrowing the actual malice standard — that being how public figures must demonstrate awareness of falsity or reckless disregard of the truth.

Rakoff won't give that to Palin.

"Perhaps recognizing that this Court is not free to disregard preced3ent even if it were so inclined (which in this case it distinctly is not), [Palin] offers what she calls an alternative argument: that 'actual malice rule arose from distinguishable facts and should not be applied,'" writes Rakoff. "More precisely, [Palin's] argument is that the actual malice rule, which was first articulated more than half a century ago in the days before the Internet and social media, has run its course and should no longer govern our contemporary media landscape. Binding precedent does not, however, come with an experiation date. To the extend plaintiff believes the actual malice requirement ought to be abolished, she should make that argument to the appropriate court — the Supreme Court."

At the Supreme Court, Justice Clarence Thomas wants to get rid of actual malice, but whether that would ever happen is a subject for another day. In the meantime, she needs to establish actual malice to prevail.

Fortunately for Palin, Rakoff looks at the evidence and decides there's enough there, especially when viewing it in a light that is most favorable to her. In particular, he points to strong evidence that Bennet may have recklessly disregarded truth by failing to read stuff that the paper's researchers had been sending him on the topic of the shooter. The judge adds that his failure to investigate could support an inference he purposely avoided the truth.

No, he's correctly applying the law (as it was defined by the 2d Circuit decision which reversed Judge Rakoff's original dismissal of the case). So Sarah Palin gets to face a New York jury.

On its face it is patently absurd to believe people don't follow their cult leaders. History is re-pleat with examples and palin's culthood isn't a figment of anyone's imagination. That dude shot those people because he was told it was Ok by palin to do so.

Now we have to rely on 12 people that couldn't dodge jury duty* to do the right thing.

* - I personally have enjoyed my 2 instances of jury duty, one hearing a case and once being dismissed by a defense attorney.

Wash. Ex.: Palin hints at Senate run in Alaska if Lisa Murkowski opposes Trump's Supreme Court nominee:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hinted at a possible run for Lisa Murkowski's Senate seat if the senator doesn’t support President Trump’s replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

"We sure hope that you have it within you to do the right thing this time,” Palin said to Murkowski in a series of Instagram videos posted this week. “So, you should walk back. We'll forgive you. If you can't do that, remember my house? I can see a lot of things from my house. ... Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house."

"Lisa Murkowski, this is my house," Palin said, pointing to her Alaska residence in the background. "I'm willing to give it up for the greater good of this country ... if you can't find it within yourself to do the right thing this time and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you.”
