John Ziegler is a personality purporting to be a conservative, when in fact he is nothing but a self-promoter looking for his next gig.
He admits to being a little off …
- fired from multiple radio stations; for using the n-word, talking about the sex life of one of his lovers, arguing with co-workers on air.
- so depressed, he considered killing O.J. Simpson when he was acquitted; had a romance with Ron Goldman’s sister.
- was openly provocative leading to a near-arrest to publicize a project.
The Sarah Palin project …
He was an ardent supporter of Sarah Palin, only to turn negative and nasty when she did not run for office and take Ziegler along with her …
Editorial by John Ziegler
An Open E-mail to Sarah Palin (10/5/2011)
Dear Governor Palin:
Wow. So, is this really how your political saga is going end? By letting down your remaining supporters and telling them, with a straight face, that you can do more to impact change as a Fox News Contributor than you can as President of the United States?
The only reason the liberal media has been obsessing over whether you might run for president is that you would have added to the entertainment value of a Republican race with which they are already getting bored.
As you recently accurately (and, given your family’s penchant for participating in such endeavors, rather ironically) observed that they see the whole thing as a “reality show” in need of a new wacky character to spice things up. Plus, they would love for you to have somehow been the nominee to insure Obama’s reelection.
Now that you aren’t running you have made yourself almost totally irrelevant. Unlike with Chris Christie (did you notice how much more passionately the media pined for him than you?), no one with an actual chance will want your endorsement. Once the nominee and the new VP candidate are chosen you will be very old news, and with no elected office (or, thanks to you’re your incredible lack of popularlity in Alaska, even the theoretical chance of one), you will have no opportunity to alter your narrative or make any news.
My guess is that you won’t even end up speaking at the convention because you are too big for a minor slot and too dangerous for a prime one.
Read the rest of the snarky letter in context here.
Is this just another attempt to get media attention for himself or his projects?
Is this an attempt to position himself as a hanger-on with Mitt Romney’s campaign?
Or is he just another self-promoting nut-burger seeking another payday?
The attack on Newt …
Dear John Ziegler Mailing List Members:
On Wednesday I am launching a brand new web site devoted to telling the truth about Newt Gingrich from the conservative perspective.
The site promises to be by far the most comprehensive source of information about why it would be a bad idea for Republicans to nominate Newt Gingrich. It also announces a $10,000 bet offer regarding Gingrich's candidacy.
The site can be found at the following urls:
If, after reading its extensive content, you support this cause, PLEASE share the site with friends and membes of the media via e-mail or Facebook, which is easily done through the site itself. The only way this message is going to get out in time is for like minded people to communicate the truth to each other.
Thanks for our continued support,
Bottom line …
Another self-appointed arbiter of the truth attempts to capitalize on the political process by attacking a front-running candidate.
Sad; very, very sad. As for Ziegler’s opinion and website machinations, who the “eff” cares.
