If she doesn’t get to impeach President Obama, can the bitter quitter from Alaska at least growl at him daily?
Yes, she can! Because Fox News will find a way to make a buck off of their failed Palin investment if it kills them. So on Friday they published an “op-ed” from Palin in which Palin called Obama a teenager and repeatedly inferred that he was high, because only real adults quit their job half way through in order to chase after taxpayer-funded reality TV shows that bomb.
Clearly jealous that the President is able to fundraise so easily off of the crazy Palin used to have a trademark on but Speaker John Boehner has encroached upon, Palin sniped about Obama eating pizza. How dare he. “President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day.”
In case you missed that you’re supposed to picture him as a high, lazy loser now who, and this is a bit of a problem for her imagery, sits around being fed big dollars by lobbyists, she spells it out for the reader later, “Whew. Racking balls, getting buzzed on suds, maybe humming ‘Rocky Mountain High’ while kicking it in those Rockies, hard choices had to be made – stripes or solids?”
So in Palin world, Obama is both high and collecting big bucks. Collecting big bucks is always a good thing when a rich white man does it for the GOP. Then it’s because they are good at their job and anyone who objects to CEOs getting million dollar bonuses while Americans starve is just lazy and jealous. But when Obama does it, well, he’s high.
The person who quit her job just accused the person who is doing his job of being high. For no reason.
“After watching what’s going on, does anyone else feel an urgency to take away the proverbial teenager’s car keys to prevent the inevitable crash down the road? But maybe that’s just the mama in me,” the GOP’s “pitbull” wrote. Here’s hoping spittle-encrusted jealousy is not actually “the mama” in her.
Palin had a bit about hairballs because really, what serious political operative doesn’t? “The president conveniently disparages these fat cats in public, but in private their group hugs are a whole lot of cuddlin,’ purrin’ and rolling over for more tummy tickling from the one who feeds them. And it wasn’t hairballs any felines coughed up Tuesday just to hear Obama talk…and talk…and talk some more.”
And then she destroyed the GOP’s attempts to seem less crazy by claiming Obama has so numerous impeachable offenses — this coming from the woman who was found guilty of abusing her power as governor, “The attention deficit that prohibits this administration from tackling even ONE serious problem, resolving even ONE impeachable scandal or self-made crisis, is probably due to having so much on the plate at once, including one heck of a high priority project currently underway.”
Like what she reads, Palin couldn’t name any specific impeachable offenses, so she tossed out the ever mocked “any and all of ’em” approach, “But Barack Obama has most certainly engaged in impeachable offenses. Many. That’s a given.” Oh,yes, a “given”; aka, don’t ask for deets because she ain’t got ’em! Any and all of ’em, Katie.
Being found guilty as Palin was is not the same thing as having political opponents who lost to you like Palin lost to Obama claim that you are guilty. Just saying.
Then Palin drifted off into a frenzy of rage about a White House bowling alley refurbishment project, as if she had never put Wasilla into millions of dollars in debt over a sports center located conveniently near her home, or redone her entire office when elected as Mayor of Wasilla. Or had a recall campaign threatened against her for being a bit of a tyrant.
People say Sarah Palin is stupid. Sarah Palin is immature, petty, misinformed and really, really angry. But she’s not stupid. The GOP would give anything for her to shut up on cue, but she won’t, and that’s part of what makes her so great for the Democratic Party. Whenever the GOP is trying to sell the public that they are not crazy, up pops Sarah Palin from her Facebook Bunker or Breitbart or Fox News to remind everyone of when they sold her as the average Hockey Mom Next Door.
The GOP is full of crazy. She’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Sarah Palin is exactly what the GOP wants America to forget: Sarah Palin is the living and breathing debunking of every Republican myth. Sarah Palin is Ted Cruz who is Scott Walker who is George W Bush who is… the next Republican who tells you they are a moderate, small town, just-like-you average hockey mom/dad. The individual puppets get debunked but the shell game continues.
So there’s your Saturday hee-haw moment. It can only go up from here.
