I’ve usually enjoyed most of Jay Leno’s monologues. (I stopped watching David Letterman long ago because of how liberal he is). But lately, even up until last night, Jay has been saying some really unreasonable things about Sarah Palin … saying outright in cleverly comedic ways that she is dumb. He’s basing this off of her comments about Paul Revere and 1773. As it turns out, Palin was historically correct on both counts and the mocking and scoffing media and comedians have turned out to be the dumb ones.
But knowing Sarah Palin, his comments are SO unreasonable that I had to wonder why he would want to mock her. It’s not like Jay to be that unreasonable. This is especially puzzling, given that he gave Obama a pass on the dumbest comment I’ve ever heard a politician make, when he said before the 2008 election, “It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go, Alaska and Hawaii.” (Maybe he was thinking of the fact that there are 57 states in the Organization of the Islamic Conference – OIC).
Regarding Jay, I got my answer as to why he is taking this hard stand against Sarah when I read his Wikipedia page. That page led me to be curious about his wife, Mavis … someone who we never see or hear anything about. So I went to her Wikipedia page, and here’s what it said: Mavis Leno is “A leading feminist in California,” (She was born in San Francisco), “as well as in the United States and internationally, she keeps a low profile in comparison to her husband, choosing instead to work behind the scenes of the non-profit, politically-charged groups she supports and runs.” In 1999, she and her husband, Jay Leno, donated $100,000 to a feminist cause that she chairs. So it makes you wonder how much support they’ve given to other liberal causes. And it makes sense that that influence would spill over into Jay’s humor, both what he speaks for and against.
So my conclusion is that Jay’s wife is influencing his stand against Sarah Palin, who feminists abhor, but who normal men and women find appealing. In fact, that is the case for a lot of the “mainstream” media in this country. They don’t like Sarah Palin because she’s a normal, happy, healthy, religious, conservative woman who is concerned about the very damaging direction this country has gone in morally (including the moral bases for the economic decisions). Therefore, those who have promoted that direction are down on her and use the typical liberal tactics to try to stop her: name calling and belittling. They use those tactics hoping that those sound bites will be parroted by people and become the vox populi and in the process will discredit Sarah Palin. (And unfortunately that works to a degree, which is why we must counter it). They have to resort to those tactics because goodness, truth and social statistics aren’t on their side. Therefore they can’t make their case with calm reasoning. Instead they mock and scoff and make jokes.
But instead of feeling threatened by Sarah Palin, it would be nice if the media and comedians could see it the way many of us see it and how Dennis Miller sees it, when he said on Bill O’Reilly’s show why he likes Sarah Palin, “She’s normal, she’s happy to be normal, and she makes me happy to be normal.” And that ultimately is good for women, as well as men and children and the country in general.
Obama obviously wasn’t correct with his 57 states comment, and yet was still elected president even though on this issue he wasn’t “Smarter Than A 5th Grader.” And the media and comedians are guilty for aiding and abetting that tragedy, as they push their very unhealthy and dysfunctional lifestyles and philosophies.
So it’s good to be informed enough to see through the smoke screens as to what the underlying truths and motives are. And we could certainly use Paul Revere now to say, “The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming!”
