Actress Nancy Lee Grahn wishes she’d ‘clawed’ Sarah Palin’s ‘racist face’; Update: Palin smacks down racism charge

Liberal “General Hospital” actress Nancy Lee Grahn didn’t care for a phrase Sarah Palin used while calling out President Obama for misleading the American public on the Benghazi terrorist attack. So to demonstrate her heart full of loving tolerance, she wished she had “clawed” the makeup off Palin’s face when she had the chance.

Palin used the term “shuck and jive” while slamming President Obama from her considerable Facebook platform today.

Referring to State Department emails that show the White House knew within two hours that militant Islamists had claimed responsibility for the deadly Sept. 11 attack, she wrote:

Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil? We deserve answers to this. President Obama’s shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.

The term “shuck and jive” has stirred controversy before. In 2008, the New York Times claimed it had “racial overtones” when Hillary Clinton supporter Andrew Cuomo used it in an interview about the presidential race. However, when White House press secretary Jay Carney used the phrase last year, few took notice.

Grahn wasn’t the only self-appointed arbiter of tolerance to tweet violent, hateful sentiments at the former Alaska governor. Completely ignoring the Obama administration’s repulsive lies, deceit and spin, many tolerance bullies lashed out at Palin for her choice of words.

Thanks, we’ll take our lessons in tolerance from a crowd that doesn’t threaten rape and wish death when people use words they don’t like.


Sarah Palin responds to the Left’s selective accusations of racism with a boom.

From Palin’s Facebook page:

For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase “shuck and jive” – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.

I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.

    Stay classy, tolerant left.

      They always do don’t they. Free speech only applies to that speech the liberals agree with otherwise you should have your mouth duct taped according to the tolerant and open liberal/ progressives. What a sad sad lot.


    Everything I need to know: in a tight race the Republicans turned to Donald Trump and Sarah Palin; the Democrats turned to Maya Angelou.

        Don’t waste your time, as I’ve stated earlier liberals are pure hypocrites concentrated. They lack the ability to recognize their own stupidity and self righteous entitlement. Its their nature to be hateful , race peddling bigots.

    • Adela Wagner

      She “turned” to Maya Angelou to comment on the desperation that she is sick of being on the receiving end of….spam.
      And you want to talk people? Two words..Joe Biden hahahahaha


        Ann Coulter, SARA PALIN, Murdoch, Romney


        • tomtom1983

          Sad. If you believe intelligence and moral integrity to be humorous, then that proves all we need to know about the left.

          That being most liberals don’t posses the basic comprehension skills for proper discourse. Liberal mantra number 1. Lie 2. Race and 3. Violence.

          Besides I wouldn’t be laughing considering it was your guy that believes we have 57 States with a law “degree” in constitutional law yet misquote known cases and the extent of Executive power.

          Oh well, I guess if my guy was doing horribly I would be nervously laughing as well.

          Saw a lot of comments here about Coulter, ripping her a new one yesterday. You must have missed it.

          You know, Murdoch owns most of the National Geographic channel. That’s the channel showing the Obama puff piece.

        • Section 9

          Funny how you don’t give a shit that Palin’s central point stands: that your Dear Leader lied to you over and over again about the deaths of 4 Americans at the hands of jihadis that His Oneness CLAIMED didn’t exist.

        • Hello Jerry (D)

          I doubt you will be laughing November 7th when Occubama gets his pink slip. HAHAHA

    • tomtom1983

      Incorrect. Trump turned to trump as liberals continue to reveal their utter inability to define oh so hard words like racism, tolerance and civility.

      Case in point, Gloria Alred and that racist lib who set herself on fire and tried to start a race riot for Obama, something liberals always try to push.

      The right doesn’t have a problem with ignorant hypocrisy on the level of liberals. Everything thus far has either been flat out lies or seriously distorted.

      And that is what defines the left, false racism while participating in racist derogatory slurs and actions. False sexism as they denigrate stay at home moms and conservative women and false greed as they steal the wealth of others while never contributing with their own cash.

      So far the left has shown such bigoted ignorance on a national scale. With threats, violence and massive hate as they realize their core values have no substance and is nothing more then stupidity wrapped in a nice guise of compassion.

    • lainer51

      and sharpton, jackson, wash your face Schultz, Maddow, Matthews, Weiner, and last but not least, the savior of the world (and Monica’s dress-maker), Bill Jefferson (BJ) Clinton. What an awesome “gang”!

  • garygramscom

    Now now Sarah, you have to realize the libs are all pretty irritated that our shuck and jive imposter is about to lose his job, I guess what I’m trying to say is HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.

    If these horrible people want to call someone a racist for using the term shuck and jive, then I would really like to see just one of them define racism. But first somebody would have to define ‘define’ to them. Stupid is as stupid votes.

    This from the same people who probably still believe in some small way that Sharmeka Moffitt was attacked and burned by KKK members for wearing an Obama t-shirt. #GraspingAtStraws

    • dave lewis

      Went to the Huffington Post yesterday. Folks there were still calling racism even AFTER Moffitt confessed. Some believe she was coerced because of cracker cops. Didn’t matter that the police chief was black. There were some comments how Romney was getting funding from the KKK.

      • Iacobus

        I don’t know how you do it, dave. I feel like I have to take a shower when I wander into sites like HuffPo.

        • Hello Jerry (D)

          I’d pay to see Sarah take them on as well… but knowing the wimps they are they would stay at home in their basements and get tanked on Colt 40 and pot the day of the fight…

      She’s an Ellen Barkin clone.

    • grais

      Rest assured, even if she did scratch Palin’s face bloody, Palin would still be better looking, more intelligent, more pleasant, and infinitely more accomplished than Old Soap Actress Grahn. There’s nothing more worth knowing about her.

          sarah would have wiped up the floor with her and then mounted what was left of her on the wall of her office! lol

      • RightThinking1

        Yeah, I’m thinking that Palin knows a lot more about dealing with claws than this unknown Hollyweird whiner imagines.

      • Terri

        There’d probably be some high powered tickets sold for that one. My bets are 100% on Sarah. She was an athlete, not a hollywood moron living in a little racist bubble. Sarah has always been a lady and the ugly lib women are SO jealous of her because she’s so much more attractive than any of them. She’s probably got 20 points higher I.Q. than them, too.

    • TWG2A

      Me too! I have no idea, but I do know this….. Palin would clean the floor with that liberal pig.

    • RightThinking1

      Nope. Never heard of her. Geeze…, these Hollywood ‘liberals’ are uncivilized animals….., oops…, can I say that?

      • Terri

        Libs are ignorant, arrogant, stupid, phoney, bully crooks. I wish they had their own island.

    • Terri

      It’s obvious that she’s a violent hag! Typical oblamer bot.

    • freeinaz

      And from her tweet I surely don’t want to. I’d given good money though to see her try to take on the Mama Grizzly, Nancy would still be in the hospital.

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        I’d pay to see Sarah and Nancy take each other on in a octagon-type cage fight. My money definitely would be on Sarah… you betcha!

        In Nancy’s behalf, it could be named “Occupy the Octagon”.

        For those inquiring minds, watch “The Octagon” with Chuck Norris to see what I mean.

    • Rick Schweikert

      Same here. Had to look her up. Looks like thirty pounds of silicone and lipofilling.

  • jenndee

    Sarah was poking fun at Jay Carney. These people would know this if they didn’t get all of their information from E! News. This is just like Zach Braff saying Romney lost after one term in Massachusetts. Look up useful idiots in the dictionary and these Hollywood airheads would be pictured.

    Oddly enough, the first person to describe Obama as a shucker and jiver was none other than Andrew Cuomo in the 2008 campaign. He was sufficiently chastised and has remained remarkably silent.

  • Jack Deth


    Obama has proven to be nothing more than a shuck & jive, two bit Chili Mac Pimp from Chicago. With a busted ride and even more broke ass stable.

    I guess some people can’t handle the truth without going all ‘Bull Connors’ on those pointing out the obvious.

    You remember ‘Bull’ Connors, don’t you? Exceeding overweight, registered Democrat, racist police Captain who turned fire hoses and German Shepherds loose on Freedom Marchers in the 1960s?

  • PhilipJames

    But, you notice that every one of those tweets included the link to Sarah’s post… which means it is getting read while the LSM tries very hard to ignore the emails… Sarah sure knows how to get distribution and to lead the left around by the nose.
    And lets also acknowledge that she knew she would get attacked for it… but as we all know…
