Canadian Writer Includes Alaska in Palin Hate Rant

Perhaps ’tis the season to go Scrooge. After all, Halloween is right around the corner (well, kinda). Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas. But it isn’t the chill of the night air that prompts me to fire up This Week’s Top Scrooge, it’s the presidential race and the Palin factor.

This Week’s Top Scrooge – September 19, 2008


I’ll pass on talking about the sophmoric behavior on both sides of the political aisle when it comes to Obama Rock Star and get straight to the resulting behavior from a barely 3-week-old phenom, Tabloid darling, straight-talking, Viagra-alternative Sarah Palin.

Heather Mallick

Heather Mallick may need to take a road trip.

She’s brought out the best and worst in us, but for the sake of this column I’ll stick to the worst.

Toronto-based writer Heather Mallick seems to have tapped into the inner child of delinquent adults by penning a piece that, as a writer puts it, describes Palin supporters as “white trash,” compares the vice presidential candidate to a “porn actress” and calls her daughter’s boyfriend a “redneck” and “ratboy.”

The story continues:

The incendiary column by Toronto-based writer Heather Mallick appeared on the CBC News site on Sept. 5, after the close of the Republican National Convention. On the same day, Britain’s Guardian newspaper published another column by Mallick in which she trashed Palin’s home state of Alaska as a “frontier state full of drunks and crazy people.”

In the CBC story, Mallick wrote that John McCain’s running mate “added nothing to the ticket that the Republicans didn’t already have sewn up, the white trash vote.”

She proceeded to write that the Alaska governor “has a toned-down version of the porn actress look favored by this decade’s woman, the overtreated hair, puffy lips and permanently alarmed expression.”

She also questioned why the Palins were allowing Levi Johnston — 17-year-old Bristol Palin’s boyfriend and father of her unborn baby — into the family.

“What normal father would want Levi ‘I’m a f—-n’ redneck’ Johnson prodding his daughter?” Mallick asked.

Palin-bashing…an excuse to hate on Alaska

Mallick also blasted Alaska as Canada’s ugly stepchild.

“We love our own north to the point of covering our eyes and humming as it melts … but Alaska is different from our north,” she wrote. “We share a 1,500-mile border with a frontier state full of drunks and crazy people, of the blight that cheap-built structures bring to a glorious landscape.

“Alaska is our redneck cousin, our Yukon territory forms a blessed buffer zone, and thank God he never visits. Alaska is the end of the line.”

Mallick epitomizes every hate-toting liberal media member/blogger jumping on the Palin Sucks bandwagon…and I’ll throw in the U.S.-hating Canadian train as well.

Sure, Palin basically gave the equivalent of President George Bush’s “bring it on” message to terrorists with her lipsticked pit bull speech at the GOP convention, but do we now have to hear the libs playground trash talk forever?

As This Week’s Top Scrooge, Mallick may need to take a road trip to the Alaskan tundra, suck up some fresh air, and taste the sweet smell of a sunny day in the U.S. of A.

  1. Some may see Ms. Mallick’s review as acerbic. I’d disagree. Any review of this gun-toting, Chanel-encrusted redneck wannabe that doesn’t leave its entire readership busily engaged in the twin acts of burning her in effigy whilst urgently arranging a hermetic alliance to the Democratic party should be greeted by Ms. Palin and her malfeasant clique of intellectual pygmies as breathless adulation. Ms. Mallick is the tip of the ice – Those who share her opinion are legion…And hopefully most of them vote.

  2. Michael Austin – hopefully YOU don’t vote. If you have issues with McCain/Palin on the issues, then have at them. Ad hominem attackes are useless, but seem to be all the rage with the Obama (miserable, unemployed, willing to take anything and everything they can from the government for nothing) left. Grow up, get a job, move out of mommie’s basement. Oh, here’s something you’ll understand as it lowers to your level — Ms Mallick is as dumb a [expletive] as can be found on this planet and should be put up as the poster child of the miserable wasteland to the north that is Canada

  3. Regardless of political opinion or orientation, Canadians (who are forever – for some reason – exercising a deep need by comparing themselves to Americans) ought to be deeply ashamed of Ms. Mallick’s “contribution” to the political debate. Surely we’re better than this, Canada.

    Maybe our educational standards have really dropped so far in the last few decades that we think of Ms. Mallick’s writing as “witty” or “intelligent.” (And please, spare me the talk of our standards being better than those of the Americans. It’s just more proof that we feel inadequate enough that we need to compare ourselves to Uncle Sam again.) Heather Mallick is little better, in terms of quality of content, than Howard Stern – except you don’t need to go to private satellite radio to find it. It’s right there on the CBC.

    This only makes us look foolish. Maybe the CBC ought to let some grown-ups write their political opinion pieces. Apparently, Heather Mallick’s “lowly master’s degree” failed to help her achieve emotional adulthood.
