Paul Jenkins and Why Halibut Should be Clubbed

Paul Jenkins is the editor of a "quasi-conservative" publication The Anchorage Daily Planet. I have no idea where that planet is, but it's nowhere near Earth where Sarah Palin's Alaska sits so beautifully perched at the far northwest corner of the North American continent. Did I say his publication was "quasi-conservative?" Forgive my flub, gaffe or whatever you'd like to call it. It's basically a RINO publication. In Alaska you are either a conservative (and I include good libertarians here) or you are a progressive. If you are moderately progressive, you vote for candidates like Lisa Murkowski and call yourself a Republican (which is just in name only). If you're flaming progressive, you vote for Scott McAdams and admit to being a rare species in Alaska, a Democrat. But there is one more label: good ole boy crony capitalist that I haven't yet addressed (other than with the first two words of this post).

Prior to last week's episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska, it was a given in the fishing community that halibut had to be clubbed to stop them from flopping around and destroying the meat. Prior to Palin's selection as Vice Presidential candidate, it was widely accepted that thinning out the wolf herd in Alaska was necessary to stop humans from starving to death in the winter. But, when derangement, unhingement and the plucking of the devil from one's inner soul occurs at the mere mention of "that woman," predator control becomes wolf killing and halibut handling becomes "aggravated battery."

For some reason, people will completely refute empirical observation, the laws of nature, the laws of physics and the laws of God in order to formulate an argument against Sarah Palin. So Paul Jenkins, clown in charge at the Anchorage Daily Planet, writes an op ed for Anchorage Daily News where he says that calling someone who badmouths Palin a hater is a "self-defense gambit that signals intellectual weakness." Given the fact that Palin has been brutally beaten by the media and elitist insiders, I didn't realize that some of us had "no backbone" because we are willing en masse to stand up to morons like Paul Jenkins. I got your backbone right here, pal.

As we reel in this halibut of an editor, the rhetorical clubbing this blogger and others are laying on a publishing world's bottom feeder is not because we want to short circuit the discourse by calling him a hater. The obvious need not be stated. The crux of this argument goes further than that.

Let's call this fish what it really is. "His old Boss was Bill Allen and good friends Murkowski' dad frank," according to Alaskan Eddie Burke. Would it be name calling to simply point out that Jenkins has been known for palling around with good ole boys and crony capitalists? He is clearly a Lisa Murkowski supporter based on the hit on Joe Miller ("dreck") in his piece as well as other hits in his publication. And, Bill Allen is currently serving prison time for conspiracy, bribery and tax violations arising from Alaska's good ole boy corruption scandal. The U.S. Department of Justice declined on "the prosecution of imprisoned former Veco chief Bill Allen on sex charges involving minors, closing an Anchorage Police Department and FBI investigation that began in 2004, according to the police officer who led the case."

Nice friends, Jenkins.

Of course, the Anti-Palin Anchorage Daily News has no problem with publishing such an unprofessional op ed as the one penned by Jenkins. He clearly finds enough vitriol to call Sarah Palin a "wack job" and Jim Demint a "tea party crackpot" before begging readers to understand that he's not the hater, it's us. Uh, okay Paul. You keep believing that.

Here's what really happened. When people started rooting on Bristol Palin on Dancing With the Stars, the Palin haters came out of their dirty little holes and started bashing the 20 year old girl. Why? They hate her mother. That's all.

Let's correct the record for Mr. Jenkins and explain that "Palinbots" do not define a hater "as somebody who disagrees or questions Sarah Palin about virtually anything." We define haters as those who spew green "The Exorcist" vomit and whose heads spin at the mere mention of Palin's name. There are good people who disagree with Sarah Palin. You can tell who these people are by how they disagree with her. They don't go all unhinged performing mental gymnastics and changing the time warp continuum on the basic truths of life in order to lie about her, smear her or spread innuendo about her.

So when you sprinkle the Palin name on people or if her daughter gives the rhetorical middle finger, you look for the ones who start gnashing their teeth and turning purple. These are the ones who start spewing the venom in Linda Blair's demonic voice. Like Greg Gutfeld once said, Sarah Palin brings out the idiots.

Hey Paul, go to the place where the demon voice says to the priest "your mother..." Ah never mind. Just watch the movie. For those who don't get the reference and who can stomach really nasty language click here.
