During a paid-for speech in Wisconsin last week, “Death Panels” Palin told the crowd “Don’t let anyone ever tell you to sit down and shut up.”
Hard to believe that’s ever been told to Sarah Palin’s face, but a majority of people in the country want her to do just that.
The gift that keeps on giving is a force in the Republican Party, all right. But she’s a token.
The GOP doesn’t seem to like women very much. Unless they’re empty-headed political celebrities with no real knowledge of what it takes to lead the country — like Palin. Or if they’re radical right wing-nutty like the insane Congresswoman Michele “They’re coming to take me away” Bachmann.
Palin and Bachmann should leave the Republican Party and run for president and vice president on a third party ticket.
The Cutie and the Crackpot on the Rogue Party ticket.
Palin has already “gone rogue” and has shown she doesn’t need any old white guy Republicans like Newt or McCain.
In fact, “Death Panels” is the only Republican who doesn’t have to pander to Fox Noose.
Palin wasn’t at that tea-bagger protest last week outside the Nation’s Capitol. The venue was too small.
Right now, the Republican Party needs Sarah Palin more than Sarah Palin needs the Republican Party.
Party members are too paranoid that white guys are geeting the fuzzy end of the lolipop and see Palin only as the main attraction to get people under their big tent.
And that’s about the size of it. Palin is window dressing for the dysfunctional political family living inside.
This is a spot-on role for her. She’s already proven that she can’t govern (the novelty wears off too fast.)
Her celebrity is not only her greatest strength —- it’s her only strength. Remember when the McCain campaign chastized then-candidate Obama of that?
More than a few TV political pundits have likened Palin’s hitting the road to Real America and making speeches to Ronald Reagan doing the same thing when he was in the wilderness garnering support for his presidential ambition.
Not even close. She’s in it for the money.Reagan had an agenda —- a conservative vision of getting government off our backs.
Palin’s got a wink.
Reagan did the leg work.
Palin just does the fancy pageant walkin.’
Palin doesn’t want to be president. She likes the idea of people believing she could be president.
Bachmann, on the other hand, is ever scarier than Palin. In fact, Bachmann makes Anne Coulter seem rational.
The congresswoman from Minnesota wanted Democrats in the House and Senate to be investigated to see if they were anti-American.
Bachmann organized the tea-bagging “Super Bowl of Freedom” last week to protest Obamacare. There were images of the Holocaust associated with health care, but that didn’t seem to phase the tea-bagging thousands —-especially the elected Republicans on the steps of the Capitol, some of who misquoted the Constitution.
Where’s your investigation, now, Michele?
The Super Bowl of Freedom had all the manic zombie-like parade of a frenzied Fellini movie —- without the subtitles. Or the clout. Or the class.
So the only two women the Republican Party lets run rabid are Palin and Bachmann.
They speak fluid right-wing nuttery without stopping to think of how it is inciting hatred or promoting, yes, anti-Americanism because it is pitting one American against another.
This isn’t just polarizing the nation, but on the verge of paralyzing the nation.
Protesting is fine, but stick to the facts of the issues.
Comparing health care to the Holocaust is not fact, it’s more fear-mongering. No, it’s insane. The person or persons who came up with that poster should be charged and tried for crimes against humanity.
The tea-baggers’ Super Bowl of Freedom was unfortunately taken off the front pages of the papers cross country and on the evening news broadcasts because of that horrific shooting rampage at Fort Hood.
Next time there’s another tea-bagging protest, someone will probably have a sign with Obama’s face over that guy accused of killing the soldiers.
Anything to get attention.
Just like the Frick and Frack, the Mutt and Jeff, the LaVerne and Shirley of the Republican Party. Sarah and Michele (hey, where’s the Gellar?)
So we end with a song, sung to a Beatles classic of the same name:
“Michele, ding-dong bell,
only liberals will forever burn in hell.
Michele, everyone can tell
your brain isn’t functioning so well.
We want you,
we want you,
we want you
we want you to see a shrink.
no matter what your followers think.
it will help when they take you away
in a white coat that fits all sizes well.
