Sarah….We Thought We Knew Ya

Our past VP candidate has been the butt of many jokes and snarky comments since the election of 2008…..I for one have had my fill of her……but the media still gives her air time and all we can do is ask ……….why?

Back in ’08 there was one person that contacted me before the VP was announced by McCain and he said that it would be Palin…..I got a good chuckle out of it because NO one south of Juneau, Alaska had even heard of a Palin……that person was one Matt Lewis a conserv pundit and he was an avid admirer of hers and promoted her at every turn……7 years later he has had a change of heart…..

Conservative pundit Matt Lewis has been a big Sarah Palin fan from the get-go. In fact, as he explains in the Daily Beast, he was a fan before the get-go—pushing for her as a VP candidate even before John McCain made his pick. Since then, he’s staunchly defended her from critics on the right, and he’s even edited a book of her quotes. Now, however, the party is over. “I got some stuff right, and my position was justifiable at the time, but in hindsight I regret contributing to the premature deification of Sarah Palin,” Lewis writes.

Her recent speech in Iowa—sample line: “‘The Man’ can only ride ya when your back is bent”—was so roundly panned that it feels like “we have finally reached a tipping point where criticizing Palin isn’t only acceptable for conservative opinion leaders, it’s now almost expected.” Lewis’ new view of Palin is that of an “incredibly talented political force” who sold out and squandered any chance of greatness. “And it’s worth considering that maybe her early critics saw some fundamental character flaw—some harbinger of things to come—that escaped me.” Click to read the full column.

Nice to see a pundit like Lewis admit a error in judgement……but that brings up another question…..what took him so long?

Do You Remember Palin?

If not she was the VP candidate when McCain tried to steal the presidency……she was a source of many news stories in her day….she resigned as governor to chase the money that celeb status would bring and now she, at least the family,  will be known for something else……

Newser) – It’s not entirely clear exactly what happened at a big party in Anchorage Saturday night—but apparently it involved a lot of booze and a lot of Palins. According to Wonkette, multiple members of the family were “present” at a drunken brawl involving up to 20 people at a party that sources say was a snowmobiling-related event and a celebration of Todd Palin’s birthday. A police spokeswoman tells the Alaska Dispatch News that “none of the involved parties wanted to press charges at the time of the incident and no arrests were made at the scene. Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party. “

According to blogger Amanda Coyne, the fracas began when Track Palin clashed with one of his sister Willow’s ex-boyfriends. The homeowner got involved and was soon “up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests,” Coyne writes. “Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” Police say they are still reviewing the case to determine whether to file charges

Wonder where hubby Todd was….maybe home with the kids?  Maybe this was just filming for her new reality show…….or maybe it was a conspiracy to smear the family name……whatcha think?

YOU HAVE GOT TO WATCH THIS VIDEO!

Originally this was going into my series, Babbling Buffoons of Babylon, but after watching it I decided this idiot needs her own post.

I have said many times that I think Sarah Palin is as worthless as they come…..and now with a channel all her own she is even less coherent….

Watch this then tell me what she actually had to say….if you can.  Then explain to me just what about this babbling moron would have made a good VP….apparently I am missing it totally.

Subscribers ought to be up in arms for this crap….unless you are just plain stupid and enjoy throwing your money away……(thinking)……..

Tell me what she said!

 

 

– This Rambling, Incoherent Mess Of A Video Is What Conservatives Are Paying Sarah Palin To Watch.

“Told Ya So!”

Before I begin……we hear from our brethren on the Right that Obama’s is an imperial presidency, in other words he is a dictator…..and since the Ukraine thing we are hearing from those same people that Obama is a wimp, a Momma’s boy with NO guts…….Okay you guys make up our minds for us please.  I guess consistency means nothing, right?  Yet when the prez is inconsistent he is a bad prez…..if you want me to take anything you say seriously….then maybe you should start with one simple rule…..CONSISTENCY!

Since Russia has sent troops and ships to Ukraine we have a wealth of post incident back slapping…especially from the Right….they are pointing to Obama and his weak foreign policy (something I will stipulate) from past losers in elections as they were somehow privy to world affairs…….to this I say NOT A CHANCE!

Before I continue……to my GOP friends….want you remember this?

Sarah Palin is happily sticking it back to critics who mocked her comments about Russia back in the 2008 campaign, reports CNN. The reason is this quote from a speech of hers in Reno:

  • “After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence—the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Given what’s happening on the ground, Palin took to Facebook to gloat a little. “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” she writes, recalling the Tina Fey “I can see Russia from my house!” spoof. Her post continues: “I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did.” As Breitbart.com notes, Foreign Policy magazine called Palin’s comments “strange” at the time and dismissed the idea as “an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

Come on….there are couple of the ‘new’ foreign policy’ experts that until last week probably could not find Ukraine on a map without the help of their Google finger.

Look I predicted Chavez would die in office a year before he actually croaked and I am NOT an expert or a flipping foreign policy genius….but a couple of past voices did just what I did…..lucky guesses….you put out enough crap and something will come true…..you can say whatever you like about Obama’s foreign policy….but please do not make these self-promoting twats out as some sort of all seeing seer……….

That is my only statement on anything dealing with these ego-centric toads……we can talk about the lack of guts in foreign policy and anything else but for God’s sake leave these people out of it.

Thank you!

PS:  Just a small reminder!

I believe this is when he, Bush, looked into his, Putin, soul and saw an honorable man…..or something equally as moronic….just a thought………chuq

Run Sarah Run!

I can hear the chants as I write!  You see there are many out there in the ether that think this person has what it takes to be a serious political figure…..

Any way there was a sort of announcement from Ms Palin while speaking with Hannity…….

“I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it,” Palin said, after Hannity mentioned rumors of a potential Senate run.

“I’m still waiting to see, you know, what the lineup will be and hoping that, there again, there will be some new blood, new energy — not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state,” Palin continued.

Palin also took the opportunity to swipe at Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), who she believes “has got to be replaced.”

“[Begich] has not done what he has promised to do for the people of Alaska and that was to represent what it is that the nation needs in terms of energy development and so many other … development issues that are near and dear to an Alaskan’s heart,” Palin said. “Because he’s on the wrong side of the aisle, he has to go along to get along with his Democrat leadership. And that’s a shame. That’s a waste of opportunity for our nation.”

Now with all that said my favorite part of her roundabout announcement was when she said……..”[Begich] has not done what he has promised to do for the people of Alaska………..”

This coming from a person that was elected governor of her state and resigned mid-term to pursue fame and fortune……she did not do what she promised to do when she was elected…..this is the same sort of hypocrisy that is plaguing the GOP….and the funny thing they cannot see just how pathetic they appear to the voter…….

All that aside…….do I want Palin to run?  Hell yes!  There is seldom any a amusement to be found in state elections….but if she runs against Miller it will be whack-a-doodle vs batshit crazy…….lots of fun and lots to write about.  But will she run?

My personal opinion is…..NO!  Two times a loser will diminish her wealth as a speaker and the money will not be as good and that is something she cannot tolerate…..
