Sarah Palin is claiming that she bugs liberals, and she is using this as her latest justification for threatening the country with another run for office.
On Fox Business, Sarah Palin was asked by a sycophantic Stuart Varney if liberal hatred had driven her out of politics for good.
Palin answered, “No, bless their hearts. Those haters out there, they don’t understand that it invigorates me, it wants me to get out there and defend the innocent. It makes me want to work so hard for justice in this country. So hey, the more they’re pouring on, the more I’m gonna bug the crap out them by being out there, with a voice, with a message, hopefully running for office again in the future too.”
Do you know how stores keep trying to start the holiday season earlier and earlier each year by putting Christmas merchandise out before Halloween? Sarah Palin was doing the same thing in this interview. One of the ways that Palin has managed to trick her loyal supporters into sending her money is by teasing them with a possible presidential run on a regular basis. She did it before the 2012 election with the bus tour and her unforgettable mangling of Paul Revere’s ride.
It isn’t Palin’s consistent habit of being a candidate tease that is interesting. It is her level of complete and comprehensive self-delusion that is fascinating.
Sarah Palin isn’t bothering liberals. She doesn’t “bug” the left.
Palin doesn’t seem to understand that:
1). Liberals would love to see her bring her special brand of destructive train wreck politics to the flaming tire fire that is that 2016 Republican primary.
2). Sarah Palin doesn’t scare liberals. The left laughs at her. Sarah Palin is a joke, and only the most hardcore believers in the Cult of Sarah take her seriously.
Palin does have one useful purpose. She is a megaphone for right-wing hate, if a person wants to understand more fully the fatal disease that has infected the Republican Party.
Republicans and the media are fond of discussing things that “disqualify” Democrats from office. If being Sarah Palin weren’t enough to disqualify her, her family’s drunken Alaska brawl should do the trick.
The only people that should be scared of Sarah Palin are Republicans who ought to be terrified that she will come back to finish the job of destroying their party.
