The NYT Wasn’t Quite as Enthused by a Woman on the Ticket When Sarah Palin Was Running

The NYT Wasn’t Quite as Enthused by a Woman on the Ticket When Sarah Palin Was Running

NYT gonna NYT

I’m so old, I remember when the New York Times was super meh about a woman on a presidential ticket. Even a woman Governor.

The New York Times cover after Biden’s announcement that Sen. Harris was his VP pick:

“Political warrior” “safe but energizing” “woman of color in No. 2 slot of major party”…

Wonder how much longer this opinion piece stays up though:

Anyway, flashback to 2008 and this is how the NYT covered McCain’s pick of Palin:

And also a “bold move with risks.” Split with an above the fold article on a surge in… natural gas cars? Neither is Palin’s name included and instead she’s “Alaskan.”

Doesn’t really matter what or who she is, as it holds that Harris is a candidate who ran a horrible primary campaign and struggled to muster support in her home state, so the NYT and their compadres in the media bubble can cheer and spin as long as they like, but I’m not sure how it changes anything with actual voters.

So, who did Kamela Harris nominate as her VP?

By picking Harris, the Dems are conceding the election. It’s one thing to play not to lose which has been their strategy after their insurance policy/ies failed to remove Trump. But what coach (Biden/DNC) puts in the scrubs if the game is still winnable? Better candidates were available – did they say “oh HELL no!” Only the truly delusional need apply.

‘Shroomer just acknowledged the need to get kids back to school, Cuomo is caving on that too – the BLM/Antifa protests are a polling disaster for the Dems … and they think the election can be turned around in 80 days? Do they think Americans are that stupid and forgetful?

Kamala can run, while holding onto her seat, and is a safe re-elect in 2022. What does it say that they’re protecting her seat?

on an unrelated note Fairfax county schools is trying to ban tutoring since it might widen the educational gap

https://www.fcps.edu/blog/message-parents-tutoring-pods

While FCPS doesn’t and can’t control these private tutoring groups, we do have concerns that they may widen the gap in educational access and equity for all students. Many parents cannot afford private instruction. Many working families can’t provide transportation to and from a tutoring pod, even if they could afford to pay for the service.

We have received some requests from parents who would like to cluster groups or pods of students together with a specific teacher. From both a logistical perspective, and in the interest of educational equity,

    Where did you see that they’re trying to ban it? The letter you cite explicitly says the exact opposite. “FCPS doesn’t and can’t control these private tutoring groups.”

    They are concerned about some parents actually caring about the education of their children.

Even accepting that this hagiographic, slavishly glowing coverage of Harris from the water-carrying, prostitute-propagandists of the Dhimmi-crat media is as predictable as the day is long, it’s still nauseating to see how the coverage plays out.

Not a scintilla of criticism, reasoned analysis or anything remotely resembling objective coverage of this transparently miserable, greasy, self-serving, Machiavellian and totalitarian scold.

I’m joe Biden and I forgot this message

The Times also didn’t mention Palin’s name when it had to correct an op-ed stating that her “rhetoric” caused the shooting of…Congressman Scalise!

Why is she not wearing a mask in that picture?

Did the New York Toilet cover this news?

CIA admits they are a child sex slave trafficking org…. or some such almost 100% the same.

    Inside One Of Big Brother’s ‘Location Harvesting’ Contractors, Which Tracks ‘Hundreds Of Millions’ Of Phones

    “A Virginia-based software company founded by two US military veterans with backgrounds in intelligence has been tracking hundreds of millions of mobile phones across the world, according to documents reviewed by the Wall Street Journal.

    The company, Anomaly Six LLC, draws location data from over 500 apps – partly through their proprietary software development kit (SDK) which they’ve paid to embed directly in some of the apps, while the company gets location data from partner providers. The SDK allows the company to obtain a user’s location if they have allowed the apps in question to access the phone’s GPS coordinates….”

Kamala got the nod because Creepy Uncle Joe foolishly boxed himself into a corner by limiting his choices by genetalia. Once he added skin tone it was all over.

Kamala brings nothing positive to the ticket as Kommiefornia is already a lock. Plenty of negatives in this anti law enforcement kick the Dims are on. The radical left aren’t impressed by Joe n Hoe.

Notice the looming-up-in-awe perspective of the photo.
