Conservatives Want to Fire John Boehner and Replace Him With Sarah Palin
A number of conservatives are so outraged with John Boehner over the fiscal cliff deal are seriously pushing to fire the Speaker and replace him with Sarah Palin.
Here are some of the tweets as rounded up by Politifreak:
Sarah Palin for House Speaker! (Technically, one need not be a member of Congress to serve as speaker.)

I can help them out with that one. Here is what Obama’s face would probably look like if Palin became speaker:

Cantor is a RINO. Palin as Speaker would cut thru the doublespeak, message well & garner enough attention. Plus, a great negotiator.

Conservatives think that the problem with the House is John Boehner, who also happens to be the last shred of common sense remaining in the House GOP leadership. Conservatives answer to the problem of a House majority that has been rendered irrelevant through their extremism is to get rid of the sane guy, and replace him with Sarah Palin.
The idea of Palin as Speaker of the House is hysterical considering that she seems to have no idea how the House even works, and she appears to no longer even bother with watching the news. (Come to think of it, Palin might be the perfect Speaker for these House Republicans.)
Sarah Palin as House Speaker would delight Democrats, because it would virtually guarantee a Democratic retaking of the House in 2014. There is no way that Republicans could hang on to their majority in with one of the least popular D-list celebrities in America as the face of the House. Conservatives don’t seem to get the fact that they might have gotten a deal that included some spending cuts if they hadn’t kneecapped John Boehner’s Plan B vote. House Republicans took away the tiny bit of negotiating position that they had, and then blamed Boehner for passing a deal that gave Obama virtually everything that he wanted.
President Obama doesn’t hate Sarah Palin. He is busy running the free world. Sarah Palin never even crosses his mind. Of course, most of these angry conservatives are still clinging on to the delusion that Palin was ever capable of being anything more than the Fox News circus freak sideshow that she has become.
Maybe conservatives are doing this to humiliate John Boehner?
After all, what could be more embarrassing than the threat of losing your job to Sarah Palin?
