Noah Green: That evil Sarah Palin is stealing all of the Huckster’s Chick-fil-A credit, or something

This is hilarious. I guess it’s a slow news day for David Frum and his underlings. Noah Green, who Frum brought over to the Daily Beast after his spectacular failure at "Frum Forum," apparently has his drawers in a bunch because he believes lefty Tim Stanley at the U.K tabloid, The Telegraph, gave Governor Palin what he considers to be too much credit for "Chick-fil-A-gate." I’m not making this up:

I think Stanley is missing the real story here. Palin was just one of many conservatives who went to eat at Chick-Fil-A, her attendance is not that exceptional. The conservative who has taken a much more actively leadership role in this culture war is one who is much less incendiary and less prone to bomb throwing: Mike Huckabee.

Mike Huckabee announced plans for Chick-Fil-A appreciation day on his Facebook page on July 22nd.

I don’t recall hearing Governor Palin take any credit whatsoever for "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," nor do I recall her diminishing Huck’s role in it. What I do recall is the Governor headlining a Tea Party rally for Ted Cruz where she delivered a rousing speech, then stopping by a Chick-fil-A and tweeting a couple pictures. And this, evidently, is proof that Governor Palin is engaged in some kind of nefarious plot to steal the Huckster’s credit? My own reaction was that her tweet was in support of the Chick-fil-A Day cause. Am I missing something?

And while we’re at it, who cares who gets the credit? I know I don’t. Why is this worth Green wetting his pants over? I can only surmise it’s because Green, Frum, and the other guardians of the squishy middle in the punditocracy don’t want Governor Palin to get credit for anything because she’s too "incendiary" (meaning effective) while the genteel Huck’s "less prone to bomb throwing." But Huckabee wields only slightly more influence among conservatives than … David Frum. How’d that David Dewhurst endorsement work out for Huck? Or that Jon Bruning endorsement in Nebraska? I digress. After more effusive praise of the Huckster’s moderation, Green steps in it:

It was the exact opposite of the usual Palin method. Huckabee didn’t say that people who don’t eat Chick-Fil-A were un-American…

Um … neither did Governor Palin, Champ.

…he didn’t suggest that liberal elites look down on those who enjoyed fast food.

And once again, neither did Governor Palin. It’s always quite revealing when these crap weasels have to make up, er, crap to discredit someone, no?

    David Frum and his schmucks are at it again. Sarah makes news no matter what she does.

  • Steve_Flesher

    You just wonder what they think this accomplishes….was this really supposed to anger any reasonable person?  At least we now know their standards.

    Remember, David Frum knows what qualifies someone to run our country.

    The liberals must be scratching for chickenfeed.
    The problem with Sarah Palin is the same as for Winston Churchill.
    Whereever she sits she is the head of the table.
    Frum and Green prove the point with ther inane rantings

    • navak

    Good smack-down, Doug.

    Man, Palin posts a photo of herself at Chick-fil-A like about 1 million other Americans and the libs hyperventilate about her. She posted a photo. Sheesh. They resent that Palin has followers and people pay attention to her and like her. Where’s the picture of Frum at Chick-fil-A?

    • senator20526

       …..or Huckster, or Romney. or Rove, or Jebbie, or Rubio ?

    • excopconservative

       What irritates the left and the squishy right is that when Sarah Palin posts a photo at Chick-fil-A, 260,000 people look at it and when they post a photo, no one looks at it.

  • Robert Wiles

    The GOP establishment & their talking heads look out onto the land from their fortress of a castle & see a people, a people who are saying "No more cake".  As they gaze to see who leads this mass of pawns, they see a woman and hear the chants "Sarah, Sarah, Sarah". They then realize their realm is falling.  Yes, they dispise Sarah Palin, not because of her own being, they dispise who is following Sarah….We the people.  They must destroy her in any way…but they can’t.  Truth and Courage always prevails  !!!!!

  • n4cerinc

    Wow, judging by the comments at that site, it is safe to say Daily Bestiality is just another leftist blog site.

  • idesign2

    Sarah Palin attracts liberals, (and apparently David Frum) like moths to a flame.

    I can smell their fear from my house..:)

  • JELRGrandma

    You know sometimes I think men can be more jealous than women.  I give credit to Huckabee for getting the ball rolling for the August 1st event, but I also remember his treatment of Bristol and rush to judgement for her not appearing on his failing radio show.

  • palin45potus

    The envy of Sarah Palin absolutely eats the innards out of many of the GOP wimpy men brigades, huh?

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Noah Green does quite a good job at building straw men. Way to bring the torch, Doug!
