New York Times: “Palin Is A Two-Timing Whore”

Craig Calcaterra of Shysterball pointed me to this interesting item on The New York Times website:

Ms. Palin visited Salem, N.H. Wednesday night and said she looked forward to watching Senator John McCain debate Senator Barack Obama “right here, in the heart of Red Sox Nation.” Ms. Palin said that “Red Sox fans know how to turn an underdog into a victor,” a timely applause line given that the Sox trail the Tampa Bay Devil Rays three-games-to-one in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series.

It seems, however, that Ms. Palin voiced a similar sentiment – actually, identical sentiment – last week at a rally in Florida.

“How about those Tampa Bay [Devil] Rays?” Ms. Palin said after the [Devil] Rays defeated the Chicago White Sox.

“You know what that tells me? It tells me that the people in this area know a little something about turning an underdog into a victor.”

No word yet if Ms. Palin has somehow managed to both go bare and have her mohawk to the south too.

Mr. Calcaterra called Ms. Palin’s actions intolerable, “transparent and pandering.”

Devil Rays manager “Coach Joe” Maddon had previously called Ms. Palin “fake” — so this news should come as just one more proof that Maddon is a genius.

    Or maybe she’s just being polite to baseball fans. A person from Alaska just might ask, “baseball? don’t talk about baseball!! baseball?”

    Though I am a dedicated Orioles fan, or maybe because of that, I find myself inspired by the Rays performance this season, and have been rooting for them down the home stretch and into this postseason. They have a very realistic shot of winning, and to have your typical young, underdog come out the victor is great to see.

    However, Palin seems like she would fall more under the category of “pink hat-wearing sox ‘fan’ ” than she would a supporter of the “little guy”.

    Politics aside, go Rays!

    As a Sox fan, Trevor, I find your statement that Palin would align herself with my team more offensive than the dismissal of legions of real honest-to-god fans like myself (who are finding the endless drone of headwear-related insults like yours awfully tiresome).

    You can insult me, sure, but for the love of all that is sacred, please don’t cluster me with Palin. I see that as just unnecessarily cruel.

    I’ll add too– I am a big admirer of Maddon. I think he’s done some great work here and I’m very impressed with the Rays. Their organization and their players have worked damn hard this year and it shows. While I can’t say I hope they win tonight, still– a sincere kudos.

    Holy shit Chalk, the Rays actually have a chance at their first legit sell out in history. It only took them 10 years and a probable WS berth to try it. Way to go diehard Rays fans, you are the greatest!!!!

    mhcranberry,

    I didn’t mean to align Palin with honest-to-god Sox fans…I am not that mean-spirited. By the “pink hat-wearing” fans I meant to lump her in with bandwagoners…those who think it is fashionable to follow a certain team, not necessarily hat-related…which I think we can agree that the Sox have acquired quite a few of in recent years. I have nothing against the Red Sox or their true fans, and certainly wouldn’t insult them by clustering them with the likes of Palin!

  6. nick says:

    Jeff they didn’t put the tarps on those seats until a few years ago, we’ve had legit sell outs before. Home field attendance and bandwagon jokes from redsox fans never get old especially with articles like these floating around…Go Rays!

    Trevor–

    All good. Let’s have a good game tonight.

    And trust me, pink hats and even worse people who get into that Red Sox Nation (TM) stuff bug the hell out of everyone– including the vast majority of Sox fans who now have to take shit for their nonsense.

    And I actually agree, Palin is kind of the ultimate bandwaggoner. She’ll go with whatever team makes her look good.

    The truth is, both teams have been underdogs turned into victors. Unbelievable though it seems right now, they actually do have that in common. So she isn’t incorrect… she’s just a tool, that’s all. Doesn’t she realize people record what she says?

  8. TacoBellManager says:

    You could have left out the “two-timing” and saved some space in the headline.

  9. David Chalk David Chalk says:

    Thanks for the journalism lesson TBM — where the hell’ve you been? We’ve missed you.

    I thought the two-timing was necessary for the reason she was a whore though.
