Oh, Sarah. You provide me with an ENDLESS Amount of Material.
So I was in my Legal Aspects of Communications class this morning, and we were given the task to find cases relating to certain aspects of Communications Law using the online resources he posted online for us, and I stumbled across this and proceeded to share it with the class – because it’s that hilarious:
“Sarah Palin, then Governor of Alaska, sent a cease and desist letter to Shoe Latif, a Houston-based DJ, who redirected traffic from her website crackho.com to Palin’s official website. The cease and desist letter claimed that crackho.com had “hijacked a state of Alaska webpage.” It also claimed that crackho.com used the official seal of Alaska in violation of an Alaska state law prohibiting use of the official seal without permission. Palin also claimed that the use of an official state website without permission was a violation of copyright law. Shoe took down her redirect and Palin never filed suit.” (via Citizen Media Law Project)
COME ON. This is hysterical. No matter what your political leanings are; you must admit it’s a pretty clever idea. Make an insulting website name and link it to your least favorite person’s webpage? Touche, Houston-based DJ. Touche.
Of course; it helps me appreciate the humor considering the fact I can’t stand Sarah Palin. And not because she’s an ultra-conservative who has stood against many of the issues that need addressing and changes – although that certainly doesn’t help – but because she’s freaking crazy; and even more ignorant. She speaks without thinking; acts selfishly and thinks only of herself and her own personal advancement.
Palin promotes exactly what I can’t stand. She is an advocate of that uber-conservatism way of thinking that says, “my way of thinking is the only way of thinking; and if you think differently, I refuse to listen to your opinion. She promotes not allowing yourself to grow, to learn, to listen to different points of view. She doesn’t take responsibility for her actions, and instead blames all her problems and mistakes on vague, easy-to-blame entities like “the media” and “the liberals”. UGH.
So good for you, Shoe Latif, for stickin’ it to Sarah Palin once again. 🙂
/rant ends now. 🙂
Edit: I recently realized that that photo of Palin was actually photoshopped, and I was wrong to include it to suggest Palin’s incompetence as an elected official – a. because it wasn’t real and b. because it wasn’t the core point I was trying to make. I regret the error, and the photo has been removed.
