Sarah shat a new zinger-turd!

“Where is our commander in chief? We’re talking now more new interventions. I say until we know what we’re doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he’s doing, well, let these radical Islamic countries who aren’t even respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, ‘Allah Akbar,’ I say until we have someone who knows what they’re doing, I say let Allah sort it out.

And, really, what’s going on with this Bumpit-combover-dead-animal situation on top of Palin’s head?

No wonder Fox “News” hired her back.

In case you wondered: “The statement shows how far Palin has drifted from former running mate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is the chief Senate proponent of U.S. military action to help the Syrian rebels.” — John McCain, Real Man Of Genius

McCain’s entire historical legacy should be this woman.

A village in Alaska *finally* regained its Idiot

Sarah Palin and Fox “news” have agreed to part ways. Did she quit (again?) or was she fired? RealClearPolitics reported that a source close to Palin said she was offered a contract but declined it and a Fox spokesman said, “We wish her the best in her future endeavors.” In other words, Fox wasn’t going to pay her a million a year anymore — or, more likely, any money at all.

So how will this quitty, no job-y thing work out for Sarah? According to her: Great! Opportunities aplenty! For example, she’ll have so much more time to work on her Facebook posts whilst “not retreating” from her “message.”

Political Wire: Although Sarah Palin just lost her platform at Fox News, she tells Breitbart News that she’s been able to “free up opportunities” to “share more broadly” her message. Said Palin: “I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us.”

Think Progress briefly reviews the history of Sarah’s “message” which seems to coincide with the Palin family’s aspirations of wealth and fame:

The Palin family as a whole seems to hope for careers in show business, but this is only the latest in a string of failures for them. The TLC show Sarah Palin’s Alaska saw declining ratings and wasn’t renewed for a second season. Bristol Palin’s Lifetime show was yanked from the network for lower viewership, but not before landing $354,348 in tax subsidies from the state of Alaska. Todd Palin was reduced to appearing as one of many celebrities on NBC’s military reality show Stars Earned Stripes.

Maybe now that Fox News has cut ties with Palin, the rest of the television industry will follow suit. Sarah Palin long ago proved she had no real aptitude for governance when she quit her job as governor as Alaska. Her time on Fox proved she didn’t have much spark as a source of news or opinion. And the rest of her family’s efforts suggest that as entertainment, the Palins have nothing to offer us but diminishing returns.

If this isn’t one of longest, most painful ’15 minutes’ that has ever been foisted on the American people, I don’t know what is. Remember to thank John McCain. There is one thing we can know with certainty: morons everywhere will be devastated.

Thanksgiving memories: Sarah Palin pardons a turkey

Good times!


How many more times will the Republican Party present the American people with such complete and total idiocy?

Ann Coulter doesn’t consider Sarah Palin to be some “dream candidate” for a GOP brokered convention

At some Republican soiree in Florida, Ann Coulter, the scary thin blond conservative woman who writes a new book about evil Democrats bimonthly, or so it seems, had some not very kind words for her rightwing sister, Princess Braindead of the North Woods:

“One of the ones promoting that [a brokered convention] is Sarah Palin, who has suggested herself as the choice,” Coulter said. “I think as long as it’s between us girls — I’ve been observing something about her. I don’t think it’s likely to happen. I don’t know what these people are cheering for. As I wrote in a column a few weeks back, who is this dream candidate we’re hoping to get from the convention, because Rick Perry used to be the dream candidate. Can we see them in a debate first?”

[...] Coulter said that might be a weakness in the Republican Party as a whole — that certain individuals become celebrities and are allowed to profit off that status and yet still interfere in GOP politics, which Democrats have been able to avoid.“And just a more corporate problem is I think our party and particularly our movement, the conservative movement, does have more of a problem with con men and charlatans than the Democratic Party,” she said. “I mean, the incentives seem to be set up to allow people — as long as you have a band of a few million fanatical followers, you can make money. The Democrats have managed to figure out how not to do that.”

[...] Coulter proposed a pledge for Republican presidential candidates, which would be meant to limit their ability to profit off of political stardom.“The one pledge I support and I think I’m going to draft it up is for all Republican nominees for president — I want them to sign a pledge saying, ‘If I lose the nomination I pledge I will not take a gig with Fox News or write a book.’”

The funniest part isn’t the obvious “mean girls” catty jealousy being hollered across the school cafeteria. What’s delightful and hilarious is the pure existential angst she’s now caused among the rightwingnutjob teabaggers (the few million fanatics, as Coulter put it) and the rightwingnutjob true believers (the automatons who vote Republican because —  lower taxes! but who don’t live in trailers and who don’t watch NASCAR) in the comment section of two articles about Counter’s remarks.

Just LOOK at the comment section on the original post about Coulter’s remarks at The Shark Tank, and on The Daily Caller‘s website. Some of the commenters are saying things about Ann Coulter that they normally reserve for trolling liberal websites. Infighting on a grand scale!

We, the audience to this travesty that is now known as “politics” and the “GOP,” can only hope that Palin will pretend to feel victimized (as usual) and will whip up one of her extra special (and, yes, incomprehensible) word-salad surprises for Coulter on Sean Hannity’s Comedy Hour. Or (and?) maybe she’ll “write” on her famous Facebook Patriot Network “Notes” page about how Ann, pretty much, called her a charlatan and a conman (which means the same as “grifter” in liberalspeak).

Will Sarah wonder why Ann, the writer of a million books, would deny her similar fame and wealth when she hires someone to ghostwrite books on her behalf? I mean, srsly, Palin might argue, Coulter was never governor of a state with the lowest population for half a term before she quit. And Coulter certainly didn’t help John McCain lose a presidential election. Who’s more important to the future of the Birther-Teabagger-Racists caucus anyway!?

It’s unseemly and it’s not fair, I would think Sarah Palin will feel the very second she hears about this — and I think she should go on the offensive immediately. And not just for our amusement. Truthfully (and a bit uncomfortably) there are probably a lot of us who are with Ann Coulter on this: what ARE those people cheering for? Seriously.

Ready, Pitbull Barracuda (or whatever): Go!

Sister Sarah: Just quittin’ and cancellin’ and twattin’ all over the place

The real question is: what will Greta Van Susteren have to talk about on her Fox “News” show without Palin’s exclusive interviews? Palin really seems to have become Greta’s meal ticket.

Former [half-term] Alaska governor Sarah Palin has canceled a trip next month to war-ravaged Sudan, one of the most unstable nations in the world and the focus of passionate advocacy within the U.S. evangelical community.

Palin scrapped her visit to the North African country for scheduling reasons, several sources close to her said. She was planning to travel with Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical leader Billy Graham, as well as Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren, to the July 9 independence ceremony of South Sudan, the sources said. Van Susteren also canceled her trip. Graham said on Wednesday that he still plans to go.

And MMFA catches the lamestream media trying to piss on Palin. AGAIN! NATURALLY… AS USUAL!

Earlier today, one of Fox News’ websites, FoxNews.com, reported that Fox News contributor Sarah Palin is “end[ing] her ‘One Nation’ bus tour” and returning home where “it’s prime salmon fishing season” this time of year. Palin subsequently fired off a tweet sarcastically asking “I did?” and saying that the media “never cease to amaze.”

And then another Fox News website, the Fox Nation, jumped in to defend Palin against the report by its sister website, reporting that Palin “quiets bus tour rumors.” Palin later jumped back into the fray with a Facebook post decrying reports from unnamed media outlets that her bus tour had been canceled. Palin ended her Facebook note by declaring that these unnamed media outlets have a “long track record of getting things wrong or just making things up.”

All the stories were generated by one lamestream source: Fox “News.” Heh. Oops!

 

#PalinEmails: Pre-formatted answers on teleprompters for fake interviews are awesome!

As recently as this past April, Palin was still taking cracks at Obama and teleprompters on her Facebook page (no mention of hand notes). This is called the “people in glass houses” lesson:

March 19, 2007

Palin’s hostility toward the use of teleprompters didn’t fit within her world back in 2007. When Calgary’s “Energy TV” called up looking to interview Palin, Palin communications aide Meg Stapleton wrote to staff:

Energy TV would like an interview with the Governor and I thought this Wednesday might work – the questions are below . What we need to do is simply book the Governor’s time, provide the answers to the questions below, use the prompter and have her look to the side and answer the questions for use by the TV station. I just need help on the answers . It needs to be very conversationally written . Needs to be on 3:30pm Governor’s feed Wednesday – could record according to Governor ‘s schedule on Wednesday morning and would need answers by tomorrow. Possible?

Palin recalled that she had a “long cabinet meeting” scheduled for the same time they had allotted to shoot her side of the interview. Stapleton replied:

We’re working around that. Joe Balash is crafting the answers right now , Sharon will ask the questions, we will have the answers in a teleprompter, and then send those answers over the satellite tomorrow afternoon . It shouldn’t take long , once we have the answers. Expect them tonight.

Palin replied:

You’re awesome.You’re all awesome.

Whataday…

Teleprompters! Seriously, they are just a useful tool that politicians should use. Much preferable to the palm of one’s hand.Jason Linkins

Teleprompters are also much preferable to the completely boneheaded word salad Palin vomited about Paul Revere’s ride in response to the “gotcha” question: “What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?”

No wonder she only does Fox “News” interviews — they give her the questions ahead of time so someone else can plan what she’ll say.

Hahah. Margaret Thatcher thinks Sarah Palin is “nuts.”

Lady Thatcher is correct. Meeting Palin would belittle anyone.

David Frum on why a certain segment of the conservative working-class* is still attracted to the former half-term governor:

They feel victimized, embittered, deeply mistrustful of every established institution except the military. And they are hungry for a candidate who pungently expresses their victimhood, bitterness and mistrust: Donald Trump? Herman Cain? Michele Bachmann? But of course, nobody does it better than the candidate who has made victimhood her core message: Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin is having a squirmish with The Daily Caller

Our Lady of Perpetual Butthurt:

TPMDC: Sarah Palin launched a lengthy attack on The Daily Caller via Facebook on Wednesday in which she slammed the conservative-leaning news organization for not featuring her quotes prominently enough.

The publication, helmed by Tucker Carlson, quoted from a nearly 650-word statement she issued to them in response to an article on legislation she signed as governor of Alaska providing tax credits to production companies who film in Alaska. It also reprinted the entire statement on the next page of the article. This was not good enough, however, for Palin, who said that her statement was “buried.”

Has there ever been another half-term governor, failed VP candidate who is more “me me me“? And why are conservatives so afraid of her?

Sarah Palin will never be president

“The narcissism required, on a day the nation is commemorating the Arizona shooting victims, to put her own sense of victimhood front and center, is stunning. The “blood libel” idiocy may be the worst of it, especially given that Giffords herself is Jewish. But that’s not the only thing wrong with her performance. Hilariously, after all the times she’s mocked President Obama for using a teleprompter, you can see a teleprompter screen reflected in her eyeglasses throughout much of her Facebook chat. Seeing the flickering teleprompter in her eyes is eerie; it’s where some flicker of her soul should be, but you don’t see any. Looking into Palin’s eyes, you see a blazing, self-pitying anger that’s shocking, even for the self-described “pit bull in lipstick.“

Palin’s neighbor is leaving Wasilla to write his book

null

Sarah Palin, Our Lady of Perpetual Butthurt

HuffPo:

Sarah Palin can take down the fence. Palin’s neighbor of three months on Wasilla’s Lake Lucille, author Joe McGinniss, is packing his bags and notebooks and leaving Sunday for his home in Massachusetts to write the book he has been researching on the former governor and GOP vice presidential candidate.

McGinniss won’t reveal what the book will say, but had some comments:

“It’s just a peculiar thing, but she does, as I found out in May, she presses a button and what comes back is hate. The people who respond when she complains about something are just so filled with hate. I got some of the ugliest, most vile e-mails directed at me, my grandchildren, my children, my wife – just ugly, ugly stuff.” [...]

“People – I don’t know if they’re afraid of shadows or whether there’s something real there – she’s no longer in a position of governmental influence but there are people up there who are scared to death to talk because if Sarah ever found out they talked, oh, something terrible would happen to them,” he said. [...]

He is sure she will run for president. “Everything she’s doing is geared to that. And, she wants to be president. And God wants her to be president, so how can she say no?”

~~~~~~~~

Exactly. And God wanted Palin to run for Governor of Alaska. Then He wanted her to run for VP, and lose. Then He wanted her to quit being Governor half-way through and said, “Verily I command thee to Tweet and Facebook.” Then He wanted her to go camping on a reality show with Kate Gosslin, and it was done. It’s all in God’s Great Plan in Palin’s mind.
