USA Weekend, Real America's Version of NYT Magazine, Visits Sarah Palin

News

Sarah Palin's whole nutty family appeared in thatUSA Weekend newspaper insert on Sunday, and even a sympathetic publication that only appears in the pro-America America can't help but make Palin and her brood look like a bunch of bird-brained weirdos. The whole cover story is only about 900 words long -- normal for these PARADE-style things -- but it still features many quotable items of unintentional humor/horror. Let's skim this thing and never speak of it again.


Family-values Sarah, who gets professionally photographed about twenty times a day, has never bothered to get her own children and grandchild together for a snapshot. Because there's no money in that, right? Not until the Sunday supplement came to Wasilla, anyway:

"This is the first time we’ve had all the kids together in the same picture!” exclaims an amazed Sarah Palin, flanked by her five children and baby grandson in her Alaskan home. The occasion for this Palin first: helping USA WEEKEND Magazine mark Mother’s Day 2010.

Todd is presented as the stay-at-home dad, even though he always seems to be with the Snowbilly Grifter when she's doing her big-money appearances down in the Lower 48. Oh and that monstrosity medical office/apartment court Sarah's building on the lot next door? Part of it will be a garage for Todd's plane. The reporter can't help but noting that the "driveway strewn with eight pickups and cars makes the small compound’s entrance resemble an auto-repair lot more than the home of a political superstar."

And all those rumors about eldest child/Iraq veteran Tripp Track (or whatever, something with "Tr-", maybe "Truffle" or "Truffaut"?) are validated in one casual observation about the "rather-be-elsewhere young veteran" stuck in the house so the reporter could watch the Palin family in action, for this Mothers Day article.

But Sarah just runs away to do her teevee shows!

One minute Palin, 46, is making a baby bottle, checking the latest stream of e-mails on her BlackBerry and asking Piper, 9, if she wants a playdate; the next she’s dashing out the back door, taking off her dangle earrings and doing a live TV shot on, yes, health care reform for Fox News. And this is all during our interview.

Why won't Fox News let Real America see Sarah Palin's "dangle earrings"? [USA Weekend via Wonkette commenter J Robert Oppenheiner]

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
