I’m watching Sarah Palin’s fan club on Fox News–including the shameless Greta Van Susteren–trying to spin Palin’s decision to step down as governor of Alaska midterm and it’s remarkable how they can take straight Palin’s phony-baloney explanation that she can do more for Alaska by working from outside the government instead of hanging on and fulfilling the duties for which she was elected. If she had said, I can do more for my national prospects by kissing this job buh-bye and readin’ up real good like Jonah Goldberg recommends and getting my presidential campaign team assembled, that would have carried a certain crass, calculating plausibility. But to pretend that it’s Alaska’s welfare that’s uppermost in her mind and she can do more in a civilian capacity than serving as the actual f***ing governor of the state, is a bit stretchy. And releasing such a bombshell announcement on the Friday of a holiday weekend is a calculated news-dump move, not a brilliant PR coup.
Especially with Michael Jackson’s funeral coming up. Perhaps she plans to attend Michael’s funeral at the Staples Center and see what she can do there for Alaska.
Now Bill Kristol is speculating that maybe Palin is “crazy like a fox,” which given his infallible record for being ass-backwards wrong, means she’s simply crazy.
Now Fox is showing the official announcement by Palin. She sounds nervous, pinched, but at least a large animal isn’t being loudly disemboweled behind her. The tension in her throat and her forced smile suggest that she’s trying to put a bright coat of paint on an untenable situation without telling us the real story. This rollcall of self-congratulation defies logic, translating as, “We’ve done a helluva job, that’ why I have to leave, otherwise things might get too good.” And her rattling litany of complaints about her press coverage–not very Reaganesque.
“Only dead fish go with the flow.”
But my faith in humanity is refortified to see that Palin’s supporters are reacting to the news with the maturity, perspective, and stoic equanimity for which they are legend:
It’s time for freedom lovers to take a no-prisoners / no-mercy attitude toward the Democrats, the Left, the Mainstream Media, and the Republican Party establishment. All of these have contributed to Palin’s departure. It is vital that none of them ever know another restful night. Dog their private lives. Dog their finances. Dog their associations. Pepper them with hostile questions and accusations at every imaginable turn.
Take vengeance for Sarah Palin.
Or, failing that, go off and have a good pout.
LOL, this was to good of a read not to post — VERSE
Mogul Jay-Z and partnering company Iconix China have secured an expansion deal to bring the Rocawear brand to the country of China.
The deal was finalized with Bosideng International Holdings, who will manufacture the brand’s Spring 2010 lines.
Additionally, the company has forecasted a timetable to break ground on over 300 Rocawear stores throughout Greater China by 2012.
As an original founder of Rocawear, Jay-Z stated that making the brand an international product was one of his main goals since selling the company’s rights to Iconix for $204 million.
“When Iconix purchased the Rocawear trademark two years ago, Neil Cole and I made a commitment to building Rocawear into a global lifestyle brand,” Jay explained in a prepared statement. “Our expansion into China is a validation of our joint efforts to bring an authentic interpretation of American fashion to young people around the world.”
The deal is reported to be a 50-50 split venture with Iconix Brand Group and Novel Fashion Holding Limited.
Last year, the Rocawear brand remained strong despite the ailing U.S. economy, grossing sales of 18.3 million dollars in the third quarter alone.
At press time, Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 LP is tentatively aimed for a September release.
