A Palin right-wing media acknowledgments list who’s who
Colorado Independent colleague Dave Weigel at the Washington Independent offers an informed guessing annotation of the acknowledgments list that appears in Sarah Palin’s memoir, which was shipped to stores today. Palin, the media outsider, offers a folksy first-name-only list of right-wing media insiders that includes “Rush” and “Sean” and “Glenn.” Not all of the names are so easy to put with a face.
From “Going Rogue”:
To some media professionals whom I admire because you don’t let anyone tell you to sit down and shut up, please keep making the idiots’ heads spin. Thank you for not taking our Freedom of the Press for granted, you bold and patriotic, fair and balanced media folks. Keep calling it like you see it: Amanda, Andrew, Ann, Bill(s), Bob, Cal, Dennis, Dick, Eddie, Fred, Glenn, Greta, Hugh, Joey, John, Jonah, Larry, Laura, Lou, Mark, Mary, Michael, Michelle, R.A.M., Rich, Rush, S.E., Sean, Tammy, Walter… and there are more. I join you in standing up for what is right. Remember that as your voice is heard and your spine is stiffened, the spines of others are stiffened, too.
Amanda Carpenter of The Washington Times, Ann Coulter, Bill Kristol, Bill O’Reilly, Cal Thomas, Dennis Miller, Fred Barnes, Glenn Beck, Greta Van Susteren, Hugh Hewitt, Jonah Goldberg, Larry Kudlow, Laura Ingraham, Lou Dobbs, Mark Levin, Michael Reagan, Michelle Malkin, Rich Lowry, Rush Limbaugh, S.E. Cupp, Sean Hannity, Tammy Bruce, and Walter Williams.
Why not use their whole names? Cuz she’s going rogue, of course, by delivering a regular-gal memoir, not a Nixon-style policy tract. She’s a tweeter not a reader!
