The DNC’s Star-Studded ‘Thank You’ Party Disguised as the Golden Globes





Good grief!  It seems the DNC’s annual “Thank You!” party to Hollywood (complete with an appearance by Bill Clinton) was repackaged as the Golden Globes this year.

The only liberal-friendly performance that failed to win recognition at the affair was Sandra Fluke’s mock testimony before Congress.  True, Fluke’s performance was nothing to write home about but she certainly did better than anything Lena Dunham cranked out over the last 12 months.

But as Julie Borowski pointed out, Dunham (in honor of Fluke) encouraged women to “vote like their lady parts depend on it” as if their “cute little heads aren’t informed about the economy or foreign policy.”  But since Dunham’s performance inspired more parodies, the award went to her.  Sorry, Sandra.

Next up was the gay rights portion of the really big night.  While accepting an award for her craft, Jodie Foster talked about coming out (but not really) and her need for privacy — only to finish up by pointing out a former partner by name on national TV.  Despite not making a whole lot of sense, it’s clear that part of last night’s political gratitude went to helping revive the careers of has-been actresses as reward for parroting their nonsensical rhetoric.

Personally, I’ve always found it insulting for the gay community when celebrities come out of the closet only after their careers and popularity begin to fade.  Not only is it insulting but it also leaves the door open for the left  to come back a year later to proclaim that America is still homophobic when the dried up career can be portrayed as the consequence of coming out as opposed to the actual reason they chose to come out at all.

Nonetheless, Foster wasn’t the only faded celebrity who took home a statue.  Julianne Moore was once again praised for her work in the fictional HBO flop, Game Change.   The only history-making aspect of this tragic HBO embarrasssment of course is the fact that even after Governor Palin decided to sit out the 2012 presidential election, the film and its millionaire leftwing backers went ahead as scheduled.  This of course reflects the average Democrat’s ability to spend according to priority since we now know that making an impressive profit or getting a decent amount of viewers was apparently not meant to be for the project.  While Governor Palin served as no direct political threat to Obama in 2012, the left sure spent money like she had.

Governor Palin has been relatively quiet lately.  Her recent involvement in politics begins and ends with the few victories the GOP was actually able to enjoy in November.  Of course, I am talking about the Senate wins for Palin-endorsed folks like Ted Cruz, Deb Fischer, and Jeff Flake.  Outside of those and a handful of Congressional races, Governor Palin stayed back from the embarrassing GOP debacle that unfolded in November.

But despite the lack of Governor Palin’s actual presence, last night proves that her detractors are still thinking about her and view her as a threat.  The Hollywood folks are probably a little worried that a leader like Governor Palin would have opted to spare them their tax breaks that the Obama administration approved for them before she’d think of raising taxes on the middle class as the Obama administration also did.

Since we all know Game Change has been well-debunked by Stacy Drake (along with actual members of the McCain campaign) without response from the film’s creators, we have no choice but to assume that its content is nothing more than the utter nonsense Stacy exposed it as.

But regardless of Governor Palin’s factual record of reform and qualifications which seem to contradict the film, or the convenient parachute-packing of two failed campaign staffers to explain it’s preposterous lies, Hollywood and the left were sure to manufacture yet another series of rewards for its participants.

And as this embarrassing film rides off into the sunset with Jodie Foster’s privacy and Julianne Moore’s career, Governor Palin will still be there annoying the left and inspiring Hollywood to spend a few more millions on their hysterical mission to discredit her.

What else can they do?

    Sarah was smart to stay far away from the Republican clown show of 2012.

    • blueniner

      Even though it was the ultimate diss at the time, in retrospect I am glad Sarah didnt go the the convention debacle.

      • socon

        Romney got the ‘real’ ultimate diss on election day.   What a moron.

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xal9gs_a-cool-tonight-show-moment-bob-hope_shortfilms?search_algo=2  If people want to be reminded of what Hollywood and talent and class use to be like, click on the link and endure the 30 second commercial before the short video. I believe it is well worth it. An old "Tonight Show" clip.

  • c4pfan

    Why don’t you guys mention how it bombed viewer wise and even that show Girls does horrible in the ratings?

    To me this was obviously a free commercial for the Clintons.  Two of the biggest grifters around.

    • socon

       They even had a name for all the ‘friends’ of the Clintons who ended up dead:  Arkancide.

  • lyndaaquarius

    she will ultimately outsmart them all. Her story is still in its early days.

    It is really amusing to see the Golden Globes ressurect Sarah Palin again by the leftwing Hollywood Liberals and rehash 2008. What it shows, is the vampire left come out at night, as Sarah Palin isnt even in the news and she still flushes them out of their caves. The left wing blogs are taking their hits again, as if it is 2008 again. The fear of Sarah Palin is Historical, you got to love it. Its like the old Muddy Waters song "She Moves Me"!

      Hey did you catch Colin Powell, the republican who’s really not a republican, who also resurrected Palin on a Sunday talk show with his racial rant about some in the GOP have a "dark vein of intolerance" sighting "a former governor" using the phrase "shuck and jive" as one of his examples?

      • conservativemama

        I caught that.  That man has so diminished himself.  He’s a one man dog and pony show for the Sunday news shows.

    Excellent read. Thank you Steve Flesher.

    great read / Mr. Flesher you on spot.    Thanks

    The Path to 9/11, the ABC mini-series that originally suggested that Clinton was less than attentive toward al-Qaida, has still never been put on DVD. John Ziegler, an ally who became an adversary of Palin, did a documentary called Blocking the Path to 9/11. Harry Reid threatened to revoke the ABC network’s FCC license, the most blatant act of censorship of my lifetime. Another heroically brave operation!

      The Sudan offered Bin Laden to Clinton multiple times during the 1990s:  Unfortunately for 3000 Americans, Billy was too preoccupied to take the Sudan up on their offers.

       I don’t believe there’s any lower life form on this earth than Bill and his lovely wife, Hitlery.

  • DocBarry1

    The issue becomes – if Gov Palin never runs for the Presidency then whether we want to admit it, the left and the GOPe have been victorious – we know that it is fraud and they should be ashamed of themselves, but they will know that this is the way to silence any threats.

    I hope Gov Palin decides to run either as a 3rd party Presidential candidate or as a GOP candidate if she feels that the GOP is worth it – which I don’t – to me they are Dem lite

    Steve…the pic….sure looks like Clooney in disguise

    Sarah doesn’t even have to be in the news to make news.  Liberals really have a mental disease.
