She is the thing that will not die and we have McFrankenCain to blame for it.
Had she not been cravenly tapped for vice president, her vicious, blithering idiocy would have eventually played out in Alaska and she would have returned to Wasilla, known only locally as that nutty one term governor with a brood of oddly named children.
Now, she’s got a ghost-written book full of lies and yammering nonsense, will be the keynote speaker at the Teabagger’s Convention in Nashville – co-starring Michelle Bachmann…Thelma and Louise meets Dumb and Dumber – and is still mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2012, if not for the fractured and suffering GOP then bearing the standard of a third party. One shudders to imagine the platform.
As if that weren’t ugly enough…too ugly, in fact, for the timid to contemplate, it gets worse. The blithering idiot has accepted a spot at Fox News. A bigger platform than Facebook to infect the sheep with her mad cow hoof-in-mouth disease.
Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, will return to her broadcast roots and take her conservative message to Fox News as a regular commentator, the cable channel announced Monday.
“I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News,” Palin said in a statement posted on the network’s Web site. “It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.”
Fox said that according to the multiyear deal, Palin will offer political commentary and analysis on the cable channel, as well as Fox’s Web site, radio network and business cable channel.
She also will host occasional episodes of Fox News’ “Real American Stories,” a series debuting this year that the network said will feature true inspirational stories about Americans who have overcome adversity.
“Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup,” Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.
The network declined to say when Palin will start or how much she is being paid. Also unclear is how the arrangement will work, whether Palin will move to New York or commute from Alaska.
Return to her broadcast roots? Roots? Jumped up jesus on skis, they make her sound like William Fucking Paley! This ditz attended six schools in five years…or five schools in six years (who can keep it straight?) in order to obtain a degree in journalism. She never worked for any of her college papers, never took a shift at any college radio stations. No surprise there, she can’t write or speak a cogent sentence. Is there anything quite so cliche as a beauty pageant participant studying communications?
She then managed to hold down a part-time job as a weekend sports reporter, but QUIT after a few months allegedly due to the low pay. Shades of things to come, eh? Roots, though? Those aren’t roots…those aren’t even sprouts. That’s just water following the path of least resistance – gravity at work.
Sarah is “thrilled” to be joining the broadcast and management team.
Apparently someone needs to explain to her that being a paid yammering lipflap on Fox does not make you part of the management team. Of course, given her “position flexible” notion of what the vice president does, perhaps she expects to sit in on strategy sessions with Rupert.
Fair and balanced? It’s really a beautiful thing the way stunningly myopic, stubbornly ridiculous bullshit just rolls off her tongue. Much like when the investigation into TrooperGate found that she abused her authority as governor, and the first words out of her mouth were, “Well, I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing … any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that.”
Fair Fox ain’t. Balanced Fox ain’t. Unbalanced, certainly…cue Glenn Beck in tears.
Political commentary and analysis! From a woman who doesn’t know what the vice president does, can’t answer a question about what she reads, and blithers out mangled, plagiarized cut-and-paste wing-nut nonsense almost every time she opens her mouth.
A petty, petulant, ill-informed, untraveled, evolution denying ignoramus whose folksy “Can I call ya Joe?” was a mask crafted to cover the sad fact that she couldn’t remember Biden’s name.
This is a woman whose “Death Panels” bullshit was named The Biggest Lie of 2009.
What does she say? “I’m not backing off that claim.”
On what planet does this happen? In what sort of country? What the hell is happening? What the FUCK is wrong with you people?
An anti-science, young earth creationist, barely educated, functionally illiterate, constitutionally vapid, unread, xenophobic, backwater beauty queen is going to provide political commentary AND ANALYSIS!
Imagine! “And now, let’s get Sarah Palin’s opinion.”
Winston Churchill is truly fertile ground for appropriate quotes, but I’ve long admired this one: “Your right to an opinion does not obligate me to take you seriously.”
Apparently, Winnie, you’re wrong. If the opinion – so marketed by and to the lowest common denominator – can move enough ignorant people, Christian fundamentalists, racists, gun nuts and assorted astro-turf cranks of varying stripe to unite and move as a single mindless herd, you goddamn well DO have to take them seriously.
Of course, the truth is always a perfect mirror. Who the fuck am I?
Well, I’m not on Fox News, certain ideological conflicts notwithstanding.
Nor do I have a NYT bestseller that I didn’t write myself and about which everyone remotely associated with the circumstances says is factually full of shit.
Nor am I being paid $50,000 to address a mob of teabaggers in Nashville while pointedly turning my back on the very party that put me in a position to get the $50,000. What do you bet she’s wearing one of those sweet little outfits from her $150,000 shopping spree. Silly girl…those are SO last year.
The question remains: Why is Sarah Palin’s opinion about anything worth paying her to muddle it all up by trying to SAY it?
She was inappropriately whisked to fame in a craven and desperate political ploy that ought to offend everyone. Beyond that, there is no good reason to ask her opinion about anything.
Let me be absolutely clear about this: If I want to know how to field dress a fucking caribou, there’s a long list of people who know a goddamn infinity more about it than Sarah Fucking Palin.
She can teach the course on how to fly 14 hours at full-term after your water broke and your Down’s baby is about to be born.
Oh…and she can also teach the abstinence only sex education program. I’m sure Bristol, through her foundation, would love to help.
What the fuck is going on?
Sarah Palin’s OPINION?
You can’t be serious.
There is something wrong. And someone needs to put a stop to this moronic bullshit.
It’s going to get out of hand and we’ll be lucky to live through it.
And while I’m at it, Fuck You, Sean Hannity.
