Without hyperbole, Palin would have nothing at all to say.
First she was a “pit bull with lipstick”, and I had some fun with that.
A lot of people had fun with it, and maybe that was because it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, maybe because the stereotypical image of a vicious pit bull does not involve intelligence and forethought. More like random killing of small children and elderly people.
In the same way, people from the lower 49 have probably had a little trouble identifying with a woman who likes to shoot wildlife from helicopters for the sheer joy of killing wildlife, or wants to be associated with turkey slaughter.
Lately she’s taken to telling people to “reload” and target whoever doesn’t agree with them, putting rifle sights on a map of targeted office holders.
She loves guns, loves, loves, loves them, unnaturally so. But they are just not primal enough for her. She’s got to feel the blood running down her face from the raw meat in her mouth, slick on the skin of her palms.
The latest is the most ridiculous of all. She’s set herself up to be a “grizzly mom”, and everybody knows what that means. They fiercely guard their cubs…like Sarah, right? Except that the analogy falls apart right at the beginning here. She has let her kids raise themselves, which is why the three oldest have gotten in trouble. And just like traditional large families, the oldest daughter has been forced to drop out of high school and impressed into a “caretaker” position so that there would be someone there to take care of the younguns while wingnut mom and her former first dude are off doing more lucrative things.
Except, of course, that being rich, they’ve managed to set her up with a shell PR company to funnel payments from Sarah’s donors. Real “grizzly moms” raise their own cubs.
What else is it about “grizzly moms”? They strike out at anyone they see, just in case that person is a threat, killing them, tearing them limb from limb, and eating them.
Zombies tear you limb from limb, break open your skull and eat your brains.
So how are grizzly moms different from zombies? How is Sarah Palin different from a zombie?
With all her paid speaking arrangements, Sarah Palin makes the promoters forbid recording her speeches. The Toronto Globe and Mail got hold of a surreptitious recording of her speech at a $200 a plate fundraiser, the one where a reporter’s 30 minute interview got cut down to 15, then to 5 minutes, one prescreened question permitted.
Well, I’m not sure we could say she outdid herself. The transcription was painful to read, and probably even more painful to listen to.
I don’t know if I should Buenos Aires or Bonjour, or… this is such a melting pot. This is so beautiful. I love this diversity. Yeah. There were a whole bunch of guys named Tony in the photo line, I know that. And in the introduction too, in the instructions to you all, I got a kick out of the instruction “No heckling.” I am so used to the heckling, it’s okay! We’re used to it. They just hit you into the boards and maybe get called for a penalty or whatever, but we can handle that too.
It’s so good to be here tonight. And uh, we’ll kind of shift gears tonight, we’ll leave a lot of room for the Q&A because that, having a conversation with so many of you, is something that I look forward to. And not being so political tonight. I will talk a lot about energy, because I want to talk about some of the things that both our countries, America and Canada, can do to ramp up production so that we can ramp up our economy, get it roaring back to life and a lot of that has to do with energy production, which I know that you all in Hamilton and this part of Canada can really respect and relate to, because the better our economies do, the better we do in terms of having opportunity to help children and to help those who are less fortunate, the better the rest of us do. We’ll talk a little bit about energy.
I’m wanting to, though, kind of shift away from the political. I’m just getting off the trough from doing a lot of Tea Parties across the US, man those are a blast. [applause] They’re rowdy and they’re wild and it’s just another melting pot, there’s just diversity there and all walks of life and all forms of partisanship and non partisanship just wanting good things to happen in this part of the world. It’s been a blast. The shift from the political, so now that I have that shift from the political but still have that desire to talk about the economy and talk about energy and resources and national security and all those things. I was telling Todd, okay, this is like [inaudible] on the vice presidential campaign trail, where you never really knew what you were getting into when you get into that line before you were interviewed. Obviously, sometimes I never knew what I was getting into in an interview. Obviously…

She has also posted a most amazing map of the US to show which states are being targeted by her eponymous political action committee in the upcoming elections. And wouldn’t you know, she has used rifle sights to point them out to us.
Like, hmm. Love that gun imagery. Yup, guns are the solution to all our problems, especially the problem of losing a fair election, losing the majority in Congress, and then being unable to coerce the majority to let you make all the decisions.
Advocating violence against whoever you disagree with… If push comes to shove, is she going to claim that illiteracy kept her from knowing what her underlings were posting on her sites?
I am only asking the question. Why hasn’t she responded?
Or perhaps, those who take their orders from their god (or think they do, especially those who brag they do) should not be politicians.
I’ve heard plenty of times before about prisoners who took part in penitentiary bible programs having conversions and getting privileges because of this. But this is the first time I have heard where clemency in murder cases was apparently a result of supposed conversions to Christianity.
Not only did Mike Huckabee give clemency to the guy who is the only suspect right now in the police shooting that killed 4 officers, he gave clemency or pardons to other violent criminals who went out and killed again, granted based on their word and the word of his religious advisors. He completely ignored the advice of correctional officials.
This is a secular country where people are free to practice whatever religion they please or none at all. The Huckster would crack down on all our private lives to force us to obey the rules he is imagining that his god decrees for us, yet he is so gullible he does not even bother to examine the facts when making decisions that impact public safety.
He cares about our souls, but doesn’t give a damn about our lives.
Sarah Palin is on a mission from God, too. She wants to start Armageddon and bring about the End Times.
Well, once a quitter, always a quitter. Once again Sarah Palin has quit—this time after announcing on Twitter that she would run a 5k race. But she quit before reaching the finish line, to avoid the crowd.
Hello? There wouldn’t have been a crowd there if she hadn’t made the announcement, now would there?
After a lovely weekend of conjuring up lies about the health care proposal and more ways she could exploit her spawn…
As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!
The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.
Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.
Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.
We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.
The woman has no shame, and does not care if we know that she has sold her soul to the highest bidder. She does not care that everyone can see that her primary concern for her infant is his exploitation potential.
But anyway, after a weekend of being on the receiving end of outrage calling her out for her lies, she has announced that America needs more civility…
There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment. Such tactics diminish our nation’s civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious voters’ passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying. Let’s not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us.
Sarah, you are gonna burn in Hell. Oh, I forgot. You were chosen by god to do this, and you have been exempted from all laws, rules, and sins.
But most of all, she’s got her health care. You losers can let the death panels of the insurance companies pull the plugs on your parents and disabled children because they are too expensive to bother saving.
All right, so I was beside myself today when I read that someone asked Sarah Palin how she was going to withstand ethics accusations as President, if she couldn’t take them as Governor.
And she said that the “Department of Law” would look at those complaints and throw them right out.
Like, excuse me? The what? Now I am really, really glad she is completely out of politics. Seriously, gladder than ever.
And did you hear the one about how some Alaskan has filed another ethics complaint against her? Remember back when it came out that she had charged the state a per diem for staying at her own house in Wasilla and showing up to work at some random state office building in Anchorage, when the state capital is actually Juneau? And they made her pay back taxes on the money, as income?
The new complaint says that it was not legitimate income, that she should never have gotten it in the first place, that the only reason she did it was to pad her salary. Because no other employee of the state of Alaska would have been permitted to receive that money or keep it, especially since the “commute” to Anchorage is 45 minutes and the minimum to receive any expense money is 50 minutes.
Anyway, the complainant wants her to pay back the ill-gotten gains. That’s all. Sounds reasonable enough to me. They’d have made me pay it back. I’m pretty sure about that.
But rather than photoshop another face on Sarah’s head or another head on her shoulders, I thought you might like to see this cute video of a black woman doing a spot-on impression of Sarah Palin.
She’s going to sue everybody who photoshopped her pictures after she whined that her wingnut talk show host supporter ended up on one. Especially the one who put two heads on her body.
The woman has always had issues with the concept of “truth”. Her story changes as often as she needs it to, and she expects us to accept her version with deference. It is disrespectful to question Sarah dearest, or to check the facts. Most often, she does not seem to be aware that people are capable of checking what she says to see if it is reality-based or non-reality-based.
To speculate on Sarah dearest, her shadowy past, her present, her future, her work ethic, her motives, etc., is illegal, or it ought to be. Sarah dearest is the law. There will be no other laws above her. Oops, does that sound like a Commandment?
According to a commenter to the story in the Anchorage Daily News,

If a rumor-monger only writes about and forwards negative rumors and doesn’t make an attempt to prove or disprove their veracity, that should be sufficient to prove “malice”. Slander and libel are not free speech and never have been.
My goodness. It looks like they’d have to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine and eliminate hate radio to satisfy that condition.
Too bad she’s incapable of taking advice, or she might have learned some skills years ago that would help her cope with criticism, which is part of being a public figure—which, by the way, she intends to continue being. Sarah dearest is the gift that will keep on giving and giving…
She might also have attempted to learn some facts about, oh, everything. Knowledge does not seem to be her strong point. And while she was at it, she could have picked up some creative writing skills. That speech Friday was atrociously badly written. She has a degree in journalism? Her alma mater should rescind her degree.
So sue me.
Somethingawful.com has offered a non-apology for making Sarah dearest resign. Warning! Offensive!
Of course it all started well before any of us ever met her. Whatever peculiar combination of insecurities she has, combined with her lovely natural tendency to bully everyone who won’t do EXACTLY WHAT SARAH WANTS THEM TO DO could not possibly have started when she was carelessly selected because of her hot milfy good looks as VP candidate. But surely her discovery of what it feels like to be in the eye of the National Media was the grand trigger that pushed her over the edge, that make her think that any publicity is good publicity.
Losing an election doesn’t necessarily make you a “loser”. But in Sarah dearest’s case, it merely brought to our attention the sad facts of her personality, since she has shown us over and over again that when you can’t think of any other way to get in the news, make up some crap, declare yourself a “victim”, and blame anybody but yourself for the mess you have got yourself in.
But it’s not a mess. It can’t be a mess. God told her to do whatever it took to get ahead.
The latest non-story that Sarah dearest has created is about the picture that a blogger enemy of hers (Sarah dearest has enemies, sycophants, and people she uses) photoshopped, substituting the face of a right wingnut radio talk show host bosom buddy of hers for her squirmy little one. Keep in mind that this fine upstanding right wing radio host is the same one who called a political enemy of Sarah dearest “a cancer” after she indeed had cancer. And Sarah dearest laughed heartily at that.
Sarah dearest’s complaint, voiced through her spokeswoman:
Recently we learned of a malicious desecration of a photo of the Governor and baby Trig that has become an iconic representation of a mother’s love for a special needs child.
Here’s the image that triggered this outrage that repeatedly brought up poor little Hypotenuse and required them to remind us not once, not twice, but 3 times in a brief 3 paragraphs that he is, indeed, a special needs child (don’t anyone forget!):
Actually, the original “photo” was not a photo at all. It was a cartoon that had shown up the previous week, of Sarah cuddling squirmy baby Dave Letterman. She didn’t complain when she saw that one:
The woman is off her rocker. “Desecrate”? “Iconic”? She actually believes that she is a deity? Her photograph is too sacred to photoshop, except to cover up the plastic surgery scars? She and her baby together are holier than the Blessed Virgin and Child?
I’m just asking because she belongs to a religion where you’re not supposed to worship icons. And here she’s declared herself a deity. Good work, Sarah dearest. I’d call it blasphemy if I believed, but I know that blasphemy is a victimless crime. People like her who believe that God and Satan are watching your every move for a chance to damn you to burn for all eternity, I would think she’d be concerned for the fate of her everlasting soul at this point.
Will the stupidity excuse really get you off from a mortal sin like blasphemy?
What do you suppose that reading this made me want to do? Do you think it made me want to erect an altar in a quiet corner of my home, with a gilded portrait of the Sacred Mother and Infant, maybe a candle or a stick of incense?
I’m laughing. In case you couldn’t guess, it made me want to photoshop all kinds of bizarre heads onto the baby in the cartoon.
If you’re a whacko evangelical Christian who is foaming at the mouth right now, you should be ashamed of yourself for reading something like this. You’re going to hell. Go ahead and link all your friends’ blogs to it, so their sexually-repressed little deviant brains can join my membership site and make me some money. I dare you.
I have read a lot about witch-hunting in Africa before. Usually the stories involve tales of women who were blamed for just about all illness and bad luck that befell anyone, whereupon they were murdered or run out of town.
But this is the first time that I have read about children being tortured and killed, and the first time a connection was made to Christian sects which encourage this activity.
Remember Sarah Palin’s Reverend Muthee who laid his hands on her and exorcised demons, while casting a spell to protect her from witches? She believes in this stuff. The “prayer warriors” who are members of her movement to infiltrate the government at all levels and turn our country into a theocracy have been busy at work, praying for the deaths of people they don’t like (they claim credit for Mother Teresa’s death), and for bringing illness and death on their mortal enemies, which is apparently you and me.
She is where she is because someone thought she had the potential to rise to power, and she has been groomed for just that for years. Unfortunately, the primary intellectual requirement was for ideological purity and familiarity with the Bible, which is why they selected someone with no knowledge or curiosity about national or global issues, science, or ethics.
But for her, the end justifies the means. God supports her in everything she does. God wants everybody who doesn’t belong to her church to be vanquished. He told her so.
