Sarah Palin’s Bitter Parting Salvo Mentions Obama 26 Times, Ryan 3 Times

It took Sarah Palin 15 hours get her staff to write a congratulations note for her Facebook Page. It went up around midnight eastern time. But then, as you’ll see in a minute, Sarah Palin was super, duper angry. Perhaps she caught on a hairball of hatred when she realized that yes, really, Romney was not going to Game Change with her. The baton of failed V.P. must be passed on, no matter how quasi celebrity the candidate.

… What else can explain how in a note meant to congratulate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, she only mentions them 3 times while focusing all of her frenzied venom — 26 times! — onto this President? Er, make that “Candidate Obama”, which is Palin for “But I wanted to be in the White House telling Congress what to do in that role so very important there again for the freedom!”

Here’s her parting shot (it’s long):

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous–an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.

When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful cities from San Francisco to San Diego, and fertile farmlands that helped feed the nation. Now it is descending into financial ruin accompanied by an exodus of middle class Californians leaving for other states. As one writer put it, California’s “fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape.”

Obama’s vision for America will make the rest of the country look like California, minus the beautiful scenery and warm weather.

Obama’s America is today’s California–complete with $100 billion taxpayer funded bullet trains to nowhere; out of control environmental extremists who have destroyed family farms and left some of the most fertile farm land in America fallow in order to protect a three inch fish; permanent high unemployment; government policies hostile to small business job creators; crippling high taxes; an abysmal real estate market; bloated government that wastes taxpayer money; endless budget shortfalls due to massive unfunded liabilities; city after city declaring bankruptcy; and a state government run by, in the words of one Wall Street Journal writer, “a brothel of environmentalists, lawyers, public-sector unions and legislative bums.”

We can’t afford Obama’s vision. Our children can’t afford it. Today we are over $15 trillion in debt and running up trillion dollar budget deficits year after year for as far as the eye can see. And our “leaders” have no plan to stop it! President Obama and this Congress don’t even have the fundamental blueprint—a budget!—to outline where they intend to take us as they merrily roll along with their out of control spending and constant increases of our debt “limit.” Our debt to China alone is more than we can ever hope to pay off in multiple generations. Such debt and dependence on foreign nations weakens us in countless ways. And yet our government keeps on spending despite the risks and despite conscientious, hardworking citizens telling them to just stop it. Our debt is growing by $3 million per minute. This debt, in conjunction with Obama’s massive government over-reaches like Obamacare, has strangled the private sector, which in turn has stifled job growth and slowed all economic growth. The only way to get our country moving again is to get back to basics like normal people do with our home and small business budgets! That means we must live within our means, get government out of the way of our job creators, develop the God-given natural resources we have been blessed with to provide real jobs and real energy security, and stop growing government and wasting taxpayer money on D.C. cronyism and useless stimulus kick-backs for favored donors.

Barack Obama’s record is one of dismal failure, which is why he isn’t talking about it. He would rather spend his time demonizing his opponents. The simple fact remains that Mitt Romney is not responsible for the dire state of our economy or the corruption and incompetence of the current administration.

Over the next 86 days, Barack Obama will try to distract us from his record. Many in the media will roll along with him in this mission. We must not let them continue the deception and distractions, and we must not be afraid to call the President out on his lies. His entire record in office exposes the false promises he made four years ago. So, let’s take a moment to remember what candidate Obama said just four short years ago.

Candidate Obama promised us fiscal prudence. But President Obama’s reckless spending and lack of fiscal leadership has led to the downgrading of our nation’s credit rating for the first time in history.

Candidate Obama decried reckless spending and promised to cut the deficit. But President Obama and those in Congress who control the purse strings and “go along to get along” have tripled it. President Obama’s proposed budget was so absurdly and wildly irresponsible that not one member of Congress, Republican or Democrat, voted in favor of it. And yet the Democrat controlled Senate still refuses to pass a budget itself, and this refusal has been going on for years now. That is irresponsible and, much more, it’s unconstitutional.

Candidate Obama promised us a “smarter government,” but President Obama has created a government that’s not too big to fail, but too big to succeed.

Candidate Obama promised us a plan for American energy independence. But President Obama has forced American taxpayers to subsidize bankrupt green energy companies with ties to his campaign donors. And when it comes to the energy we actually use to fuel our economy, President Obama’s administration blocks drilling and drags its feet on the permitting process. Meanwhile, he supports foreign energy developments, but not American made energy development. His administration opposes everything from drilling in ANWR to building the Keystone Pipeline to coal plants, but he’s all for subsidizing offshore drilling in Brazil and sitting back on his thumb while China moves in to pursue oil deals with Canada because his administration blocked responsible energy infrastructure development.

Candidate Obama promised us “the most transparent administration in history.” But in addition to refusing FOIA-requested documents, President Obama’s administration regularly holds meetings outside the White House and off the official White House visitor list with lobbyists and corporate interests they don’t want us to know about.

Candidate Obama promised to unite all America, but President Obama has cynically divided us again and again in his efforts to win reelection by playing identity politics and class warfare and pitting one group against another.

Candidate Obama promised us a “fundamentally transformed” America, and that is the only promise he’s delivered on. We can see now what his idea of “hope” is. Now we want change. He has failed to lead, so We the People must lead. And our leadership starts at the ballot box on November 6th.

Please continue to focus on the presidential race and on helping Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, but it’s also imperative that we get involved in the nation’s important House and Senate races. These candidates need our help to ensure that our next president has a responsible and ethical Congress that actually gets things done for America. Now on to November!

– Sarah Palin

Phew. Rapidly drifting? That must be Palinese, like “candidate” Obama for President Obama. She just can’t say the words. Poor thing.

You’re probably wondering why she doesn’t understand that the debt came from the two wars that Bush left off of the budget, compounded by the tax cuts. Or maybe you’re wondering why she doesn’t understand that the debt ceiling is what we raise to pay the bills we already spent (like those two wars), and that when she urged the Tea Party caucus to refuse to raise the debt ceiling out of some misguided idea that pretending we didn’t owe that money would make it go away, she actually caused that credit default she’s blaming on Obama.

Ms. Palin has never been known for her comprehension, but boy, she knew how to spend pork when she was in charge. However, like most Republicans, Palin doesn’t think she has to pay the bills. Bills are for Democrats, silly liberals.

Evil President Obama is the one who divided us, Ms. Palin assures us. Not Sarah Palin and her Neiman Marcus closet of lies — lie of the year winner in 2009! No, it couldn’t have been her fault. It’s not as if she just did it again — lying her way through a moment when all she had to do was pass the torch with a modicum of grace.

Ms Palin has spent the last four years braying her resentment at anyone would listen, screeching that we have a right to ask for the birth certificate, using Fox News to spew her “theory” that Obama was never vetted (and clearly in her mind, this is why she lost the WH – it wasn’t her). It didn’t take her long to up the ante and start accusing Obama of threatening the life of her son with his “evil” healthcare and from there we got the Obama Death Panels, topped off with heaps of cheap shots like Obama is a socialist, Obama doesn’t love America.

But Ms. Palin’s bitter, jealous lies didn’t divide people. It was Obama’s fault.

Ms. Palin has spent the last four years lying about this President in a desperate, transparent attempt to ruin his reputation and destroy his Presidency. She did it on foreign soil. She did it on Fox News. She did it on her reality TV show. She did it from her Facebook Bunker. Anything she could say that would set her flock into hateful motion, she did it. Senators and citizens have the death threats to prove it. If you’re the specific type, you’d want to add Gabby Giffords and her staff to the list of folks targeted by Palin who later suffered a horrible fate.

The media enables megaphones like Ms. Palin to continue unabated, rarely calling her out on her egregious departure from reality. Can you imagine if a high ranking Democrat whose motto for the opposition was “Don’t retreat, reload!” spent four years calling Sarah Palin an evil Fascist who is threatening the lives of their children? Oh, heavens, the media would be aghast. It’s okay to call Democrats Hitler, Socialist, Marxist — after all, it’s the Tea Party and they’re “angry”. But if Harry Reid suggests that Mitt Romney didn’t pay his taxes, well, your corporate Koch funded media finds that outrageous!

Imagine if a Democrat had written the following inciting battle cry to their rabid fans (another Palin special):

“In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow – the first second’s tip-off – your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics. You won’t win only playing defense, so get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons – your Big Guns – to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win.

… Get in their faces and argue with them. Every possession is a battle; you’ll only win the war if you’ve picked your battles wisely. No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!”

It’s not funny, but we’ve laughed at her, we’ve wept for our country when she spoke, but nothing we do will ever erase the horrors she has left in her wake. Her crosshairs and ignorant prattling on about reloading — she didn’t care who got hurt. She wanted to leave a wake of destruction, and she did. She directed her fans to get aggressive and physical, and they did.

Palin urged her supporters to stop the next Suburu with an Obama sticker in a speech, “That bumper sticker that maybe you’ll see on the next Subaru driving by — an Obama bumper sticker — you should stop the driver and say, “So how is that hopey, changey thing working out for ya?”

After which, a man came up behind a father and his daughter in a Toyota Camry with an Obama/Biden bumper sticker, gestured to the bumper sticker, put up his middle finger, and ran the Camry off the road.

When a party refuses to hold itself accountable for anything, mistakes are bound to be repeated. And so we have Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan tossing the red meat of lies and dog whistles, because the Republican Party has nothing else. Gone are the days of intellectual conservatives and genuine traditionalists. They’ve been replaced by Mad Hatters and very angry Red Queens, who cannot tell the truth. They claim to be Christians, and yet they all lie consistently and without shame.

I just have to ask — is the RNC going to spend $200,000 dressing Paul Ryan and his family? We never did find out what happened to those clothes, but they’re a cheap parting gift for the fame stalker who wouldn’t go away. Ms. Palin can rummage through them at will, imagining what could have been if only she had known what she read.

  1. Obviously due to the big words – palin didn’t write this but how did she manage to figure out how to ‘copy and paste’ from the writer’s text?

  2. Palin’s each and every sentence (I use that term loosely) can be refuted on the spot, even by a novice political activist like myself. Beyond my amazement that she was a politician at one time, I also wonder how much longer we must suffer her public speaking career.

  3. As Sarah Palin rants and rages in angry protest about POTUS Obama and the state of America, let’s look at Sarah Palin.
    I wonder why she is so angry and hateful.
    In POTUS Obama’s America, Sarah Palin has gone from a failed VP candidate, a quitting Gov. to a multimillionaire.

    Not bad for Sarah Palin or her family. She has published 2 books, her husband and teenage daughter (no college degree between them) have made on more money that I ever made in a year on reality shows. They can even sell their pictures of their family!
    She has health care. Free, I presume, because her husband is an Alaskan native. Even if a family member were to get very ill, they have the money to get the best medical care without fear of bankruptcy.Her son Trig receives free health and educational services due to his disability.She has a beautiful, healthy family and she probably does not have to work for the rest of her life.
    Is she angry because she may have to pay more of her share of taxes?
    Just why is Sarah Palin so angry and hateful?
    Not because she has suffered under POTUS Obama and the Democrats. Actually she has done very, very well. It’s because she didn’t get what she wanted. When she wanted it. And she has been proven to be a mean spirited, spiteful woman.
    PS Where are the tax returns, Mitt????

  4. Well, at Las Vegas, provided that they got enough liquor in their system, the audience might applaud. But in the real world where we wake up to a house to be tidied up, food to be cooked, shopping to be made (under tight budget restrictions), health to take care, and jobs that need our presence doing something that merits a payment, her tirade is not only annoying but insulting. We should let those who enjoy her irrelevant ranting keep at it, and stop being an echo chamber that only magnifies the annoyance.

  5. I shall be crude. Even though we all know Sarah herself did not write this (as she is frightened of the english language) we congratulate her on her ability to pace up and down in a hallucinogenic frenzy of Red Bull and whatever pharmaceutical she has access to and dictate this crazy to Rebecca Mansour.
    And finally, I say this as having watched this poor nut screech idiocy for the last three and a half years- When is she going to get that the President does not want her skanky shank and that he will never pay attention to her. She needs to stop trying to hump his leg via her idiotic ghostwritten Facebook posts.

  6. Rmoney DID pick a ‘Sarah Palin’ for Veep…he’s just the MALE version & a tad bit smarter than the real one~

  7. Actually this parting shot is induced by Palin’s knowledge that there is no hope for her kind and Republicans are falling short again. This tirade is meant to be resurrected in 2016 under the headline of “I told you so!”. She is not only mean-spirited but compulsive.

  8. My stomach turns just hearing her name. I’m so sick of the main stream media hanging on her words like she had a clue what the truth actually is. I have to ask..Who is taking care of her developmentally delayed baby? I never see the kid..since 2 years ago. I live in AZ..and truly wish she would GO BACK to her beloved Alaska..and simply SHUT UP.

  9. The problem is that this is exactly the sort of rant likely to be sucked up and digested by those who are stupid, bitter, and cursed with short memories, and that there are quite enough of them to affect the election, through votes or through violence.

  10. The only part of that Palin rant that made any sense was the last two sentences. Indeed we do need a responsible and ethical Congress that actually gets things done for America.

  11. This is what I posted in Sarah Palin’s page:

    I’m surprised two of my friends liked your page. It shows that in the USA there is no guaranty of good taste anymore. Thank you for the best advertising in favor of keeping Obama at the helm. Priceless.

  12. One thing about this election year, you see no Romney bumper stickers, I’ve not seen one, and I live in VA. I see way more left-over Obama08 bumper stickers, and every so often I will see a McCain/Palin, which makes me want to ask the driver, what is wrong with you? No bumper stickers anywhere with Romney, I guess people just don’t want to mess up their paint for Romney.

  13. It plain crazy reading and hearing all the vernom and hate being injected into the American body politic, but to me, it all exposes the Republicans as woefully out of ideas and desperate. The sad thing is, this gratuitous behavior polarises the Country and that is clearly the case these days.

  14. The problem with quitter Palin is that she has nothing in her heart but revenge. I think even after Obama leaves office she will still want her revenge. She is the type that can’t let anything go. If you ever read any of the books about her that is the way she is. Nasty and full of hate wanting revenge. The more she talks the more you see it. Soooo sad to let something comsume you like that. But that is what it is.

  15. This passage:

    “In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow – the first second’s tip-off…”

    Made me think of this line from The Naked Gun:

    “It’s 4th and 15 and you’re looking at a full court press”

    lol…in the immortal words of Bugs Bunny: What a maroon.

  16. I can’t imagine anyone who does not already ask his wife to don a bad wig and naughty librarian glasses before they hop in the sack, bothering to wade through that endless, rage-filled, foot-stomping screed.

    Those people will print it, cut it out, and tuck it into their bibles, perhaps right after the Sermon on the Mount, never realizing the vast gulf between the two writings.

    Palin is finally Yesterday’s News. Finally. The media has a new young figurehead from the north woods to fawn over. Comes with the openly professed faith factor and an attractive young family, also too! Moreover, the media likes to prattle on about Ryan’s supposed intellectual heft, and Ryan certainly enjoys seeing himself that way. Palin’s Simple-Minded Americans for Simple-Minded Solutions shtick is sooo 2008.

    Most of all, maybe it finally dawned on the narcissistic dunce that all those visions she entertained after her loss of becoming the valued aide to the President will never be, such as being able to brag about how the un-prepared, inexperienced black man was so dependent on her with all her executiving experience and whatnot, and being able to stir up all kinds of tabloid dirt, flaunting the President’s need for her “advice” 24 hours a day, and Michelle’s resulting frustrated anger at losing the President to Palin’s wiles, and sharing what went on in the Situation Room with only her very closest friends at Fox News, and everybody but most of all the President adoring her for her brilliance and her sexiness, while she puts all those limp, impotent, Democrats, oh, and Michelle too, in their places, what with their lack of cajones, and also too all the men that wanted to rape her older daughters and molest her younger one, why just look at those young girls everyone! look at them! because everyone knows men are basically rapists and pedophiles, you can tell if they don’t like Sarah, what else could they be, and finally so-called President Obama would admit that without Sarah he wouldn’t be able to find his way to the Oval Office and Presidenting was way more actual work than he thought it would be, so he had decided to appoint Sarah to his second term, so she would now be President until twentythirtyeleventy. The end.

    Well, this is now probably as long as her ghost-written facebook post, but I think it is very likely a closer approximation of what has been churning through her enraged little cranium since yesterday. I’ll bet she wasn’t even on the list of people that the campaign bothered to notify.

  17. I was nearly run off the road for my Obama 2012 sign the other day. It couldn’t have been anything else. There were few cars on the road, I was traveling in the center lane at the same speed as the other cars on the road. A white work van with two guys come up behind and get on my tail and start honking. Then they whipped around the driver’s side, horn blaring and flipping me off and screaming what I assume weren’t nice words. I was able to slow and get away from them, but it took me a minute or two to figure out what it was that I had done. The only thing it could have been was my Obama bumper sticker. Unless these two Bubbas have a keen hatred for the Oregon Ducks, which somehow I doubt seeing as to how we’re in North Carolina.

  18. Diane, Sarah Palin is angry because President Obama is just not in to her. She wants the President acknowledge her presence. I have to say that she has morphed into a older, wicked version of Obama Girl but like the younger Obama Girl, Obama ain’t paying her no mind so the angrier she gets.

  19. “Obama’s America is today’s California–complete with $100 billion taxpayer funded bullet trains to nowhere…”

    That doesn’t pull focus from Alaska’s “Bridge to Nowhere”, it reminds us of your support for it.

  20. The stupid, bitter, and cursed are already stupid, bitter, and cursed. In terms of votes, theirs were cast years ago, so nothing she says is changing any minds.

  21. Excellent as usual, Sarah. Thanks!

    Ms Palin will never get over her obsession with the President until she’s on her death bed – crying out to Obama – saying “Look at ME, Look at ME, Why,oh why won’t you look at ME?” In her delusions, she thinks she is his equal and he ignores her existence. Quitty never thought she was going for VP – Gawd told her she’d be President. She’s done everything she can to encourage/bait Obama to engage with her and he continues to ignore her completely. We have one very smart President!

    Her rage & hatred consumes her and will only get worse the more irrelevant (if that’s possible) she becomes.

  22. Palin is angry because she didn’t win “the popularity contest” in 2008. I’m sure in her mind, McCain would have keeled over shortly after inauguration, and she would have been President as this was “God’s Plan”.

    Since 2008, she’s been bitter and vindictive. She’s had an agenda to teach the US just how wrong they were NOT to choose her. Her MO is lie, distort and wave the flag. Revenge is nothing new to Palin, and over the past 3 1/2 years, she’s become obsessed with it.

    Now that there’s a new Republican VP hopeful, her fading light is growing dimmer. She doesn’t exactly rally being Romney/Ryan, and her usefulness to Fox is waning. In the very near future, she’ll have no value to the GOP, and will be left to spout her garbage on Facebook and Twitter to her dwindling followers.

    Adios Crazy Lady.

  23. My goodness, such hatefulness coming from Sarah Palin the oh so good “Christian” woman. There is nothing Christlike about her letter.

  24. Parting shot? Swan song? Can you please give me a GUARANTEE of this? I believe she will continue with the Koch’s downstream plan, to make sure both the House and Senate end up tea party. Scares the shit out of me. She’s the shill, Kochs are the backers. Please talk me down.

  25. Don’t get upset over Candidate Obama references. She was refering to him before he was President. Her rhetorical structure is, “Candidate Obama said X, but President Obama did Y,” so she uses President about as often as Candidate, which for this was deliberate and logical.

  26. OMG! It’s true. I have lived for this. Palin’s political demise. Narrow agenda? Who cares!
    And, Sarah, I promise, if you write it, I will read it and use it to the best of my sharing abilities. Amen and Namaste.

  27. Actually that comment made me think of our beloved Gabby Giffords and Palin’s ‘bullseye target” over her name. The bullseye target that is still available on the SarahPAC website.

  28. It is worth noting that the thread running through her FB post (definitely NOT written by Palin) is her almost physically palpable obsession with Mr. Obama. In the beginning she was using her attention-getting tricks to attract him – he ignores her (why not?) Over the last 4 years, she has become deranged over the fact that he has relevance and she has none. She doesn’t have supporters, she has fans.

    Her political career is done. Guarantee Alaska will never elect her to office again so where does she go? I believe she was trying for Arizona but we already have a very heavy hitting GOP Mormon machine here and there is no way anyone was going to step aside and let her have Kyl’s seat. So she failed here too.

    I think I speak for a lot of people when I say I wish she would just shut up and go home. Her kids have raised themselves (BTW GREAT job in child rearing there Palin) and she can sit on her lawn chair in her compound at Dead Lake Lucille and review her successes while downing a Red Bull and her adderall.

    I am so tired of her. And the more she screams, and the louder she screams, the tireder I become.

    Great column Sarah (Jones that is). Thanks for doing this for us –

  29. You’re right of course. She is consumed by her obsession. You can just see the anger spewing out of that mouth. She is being eaten alive with it.

    I wonder if anyone will actually recognize it when she has that psychotic break? Or if anyone will care?

  30. She could have made it short & sweet (& saved money paying her ghostwriter) and just said “‘Candidate Obama’ is black.” That, & the fact that he is president and she isn’t, is all she’s got.

  31. “That bumper sticker that maybe you’ll see on the next Subaru driving by — an Obama bumper sticker — you should stop the driver and say, “So how is that hopey, changey thing working out for ya?”

    I always thought this quote was a true revelation of Palin’s persona – her main goal in life, her advice to her admirers is to go out of your way to confront people you disagree with and taunt them when their hopes are in jeopardy. (IIRC, this speech came during the struggle to pass the ACA)

  32. I’ve always believed that she is deliberately attempting to stoke violence. It isn’t enough to disagree, the person you disagree with must be destroyed (again, Gabby Giffords comes to mind – it is very personal to me).

    Palin cannot actually win. Her first experience with competition was losing to a young African American woman in a beauty contest. How that must have hurt. We then have the one night stand with Glen Rice, the NBA (wannabe at that time) basketball player.

    Now she has lost to Mr. Obama – who apparently she perceives as an inferior.

    Palin has no intellectual tools. She has no education, no smarts – she cannot compete in a world of thoughts and ideas. So she attempts to challenge the President in a game of swords??? She can’t debate him, and he continues to ignore her. Anyone who has ever seen a 2 year old having a tantrum can recognize the outcome of this little parable.

    She never used brains – intellect – she never challenged ideas. She has one weapon .. her vile tongue. As a result of her lizard brain, she shoots off her mouth – never really making sense – and in a way trying to draw his attention.

    When she doesn’t succeed, she tries to stoke violence. It is all she has. It is all she is. She is nothing and no one – and all around her people are ignoring her.

  33. the inarticulate twit is so obsessed with the president, it’s pathetic… she probably plants herself across the street from the white house gazing up at his window, tears of rejection falling over her surgically enhanced cheeks…wondering why he won’t acknowledge her existence after she’s thrown herself at him for 4 really long years…

  34. It’s more of a “writing” career but you pay other people to write for you. Sort of like Brancy on Bristol’s blog. Bristol/Nancy = Brancy.

    None of the Palins actually write anything. They pay people ..

  35. In AZ have seen NO Rmoney bumper stickers. I’m sure they’ll turn up here in MormonLand.

    We now have a Mormon, a Catholic … where is the Rabbi?

  36. I’ve posted the same sentiment several hundred times over the past four years and it still makes me laugh – I don’t think POTUS has EVER acknowledged her existence on this Earth and NEVER WILL….roflmfao

  37. It chafes Palin’s behind that Barack Obama won the presidential election in 2008 while being a Black American. I grew up under segregation in the South, so I’ve had to deal with people like Palin for almost 60 years. It’s very tiresome. She, and those like her, don’t understand how someone they consider to be “beneath” them can achieve great things. She’s mocked PBO for being a community organizer, for being a constitutional law professor, for using a TelePrompTer, etc. Her opposition to the president definitely has a racial component to it. In her world, we Black Americans need to know our “place,” and we should never aspire to move beyond occupying a certain “place” in American society. She’s jealous of the president and FL Michelle Obama. She’s wondering how they both managed to graduate from two of the best colleges in the country and go on to earn law degrees, buy a house, be great parents, have great careers before the president entered politics, etc. In Palin’s world, these are things that only “certain” people in this country are “supposed” to be able to do. The constant attacks Palin has launched against the president have shown me that she is a relic of the past. She has failed to open her eyes and see that the world is changing at a rapid pace, and that this is not the America of the 1950s anymore where people like myself were forced by people like her to live as second class citizens. Although I was raised under segregation, I had very smart and progressive-minded parents who taught me that there are good and bad people in any group and to determine whether I would befriend someone based not on his/her race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc, but on the basis of the individual’s character. I learned this in 1950s and 1960s America, but Palin has yet to learn it. She’s like my first desktop computer–out of date and not suitable for use in the 21st Century.

  38. “Humping the President’s leg” – first time I heard that one . . . . .too funny! But the rest? Sarah Palin = YAWN – BIG BIG YAWN.

  39. Everyday in every way, Palin demonstrates how very glad that we thankfully do not have her as a McCain heart attack away from the Presidency.

  40. the only thing Palin has ever been qualified to run for is your order of chicken wings with a side of fries.

  41. Great article, SJ.

    Sarah Palin has caused her soul to be consumed by her own uncontrollable hatred and vengeance, and her insatiable greed. She is now a hollow person, physically and spiritually emaciated.

    Sarah hasn’t left the stage yet, but each new stage where she performs is constantly shrinking, as her act is officially DOA even if a few are slow to recognize that their star Sarah is rotting from the inside-out. It’s long past time for Ms. Palin to go home (wherever that is) and count her money while mourning the emotional blight she has guaranteed for her family’s future due to her selfishness and neglect.

    Sarah will die an angry, bitter, old woman, because that is what she has already become, as we’ve witnessed her in the spotlight for these four short years. I do wish her many long years to contemplate in reclusion all the shame she should feel for the hate and divisiveness that she has left as her legacy.

    We will never miss you, Sarah, once you are finally gone, although you will always be remembered— but only as a cautionary tale. Shame on you, Sarah.

  42. Poor Palin, everyone thinks she’s a moose dump. Her vitriolic attitude is going to raise her blood pressure, or give her a stroke a tbest. The anger is eating away at her. Tsk, Tsk, can’t get her way. Have another tantrum. Wont buy her books or watch Fox news with this Pa in on their payroll. She failed as a VP candidate, she failed as Governor, she has failed as an Obama leg humper.Maybe she can get B rated movie contract based on ability to attract a few followers. MaYBE SHE’LL MAKE HER OWN MOVIES ALA MICHAEL MOORE!O

  43. I have an idea as to where to start a revolution if one is required to rid ourselves of the unAmerican neo-fascist rats that have crawled from the sewers of the Republican Party in an attempt to destroy everything my country has represented for the last two hundred and forty years, right between SP’s eyes.

  44. “You’re probably wondering why she doesn’t understand that the debt came from the two wars that Bush left off of the budget, compounded by the tax cuts.”

    Oh, I’m not wondering; I know why.



  45. Calm down Sarah! You will get to take your anger out on Paul Ryan when he appears in next season’s “Dancing With The Stars” – that is the next stop for GOP VEEP candidates after the election isn’t it for sure golly gee! <—(Written in Palin-ese to ensure GOP comprehension).

  46. Yeah maybe we need the supremely unintelligent half term governor of Alaska to make everything ok in California. She may have learned the difficulties in running a state with the 5th largest economy in the world by running the state with the least population but I doubt it. She is still as dump as a sack of hair and proves it each time she opens her mouth.

  47. Ryan’s more than a tad smarter than Palin. He’s smarter than most of the people he spends his Congressional days with. Romney’s biggest challenge now will be trying to appear smarter than his VP choice.

    Robert Reich compared Palin and Ryan by saying she was all fire and no substance, while he is all substance an no fire. Or something like that. The point being, pay attention. He’s far more dangerous than she was because he’s very, very smart.

    A note to teapartiers: Ryan is a career politician. How’s that going to work for you?
