News of the Palin family brawl at a private birthday bash just over a week ago is all over the internet. You can read several posts about it at The Immoral Minority, which also links back to the stories most aggressive source, Amanda Coyne.  Or just open any CNN or MSNBC search engine and type in PALIN FAMILY BRAWL. It’s quite literally all over the net.

But the best version I’ve read comes from a British Online Newspaper called The Guardian. Oh not because they have any better information than anyone else – but because of this – the final paragraph in their piece:

Palin is unpopular in the state she formerly led. A Public Policy Polling survey last month found that only 36% of voters in the state have a favourable opinion of Palin, versus 55% who view her negatively.

And that, my friends, is sweet music to my ears. Oh looky – I feel a song coming on now!

Palin-irrelevant

H/T to the anonymous commenter at TMI who referred to Palin as a soccer socker mom. Nicely done!

Remember Palin’s rambling attempt to critique Elizabeth Warren’s speech about supporting min wage hikes? Well in case you missed it – Hardball calls her out on her incoherent diatribe on this segment, just after Ethel Kennedy dumps ice on her head. It’s a 2-fer!

At least twice a day I climb onto Google to see if Hillary has responded to Sarah Palin’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I found Palin’s challenge to be monumentally pathetic. Most people challenge family members, friends, you know – people with whom they actually enjoy a relationship. Sarah dropped Hill’s name like they were bosom buddies and we all know that’s not true. (Hill’s are real!)

So while I don’t expect the former First Lady to actually respond to Palin, I thought it might be fun if we provided some possible replies. There’s a blank .jpg at the end – play with it in photoshop yourself or drop a suggestion in comments and I’ll print it up for you!

Here’s mine:

WHEN it comes to dissecting and understanding serious world events and an issue as complicated as Gaza, Sarah Palin’s got it covered. Apparently.

And to help the rest of us get a grip on the situation Ms Palin has kindly released a nine-minute ramble on the truth about the war in Israel.

 

news.com.au takes aim at Sarah Palin’s new news channel [hereafter referred to on my blog as the Sarah Palin Newsy Channel], harshly criticizing her for claiming to be an expert on foreign affairs and citing Howard Stern and Joan Rivers as her sources for credibility.

Sure because nothing says educated opinion more than an old-time vaudevillian, over-the-hill, unemployable DJ and a dried up political has-been. [facepalm]

It’s a lovely read though – she’s referred to as a failed Republican VP candidate who’s jumped from the failed death panel charge against Obama to a new charge calling the Hamas a death cult. (Why is this woman so obsessed with death anyway?)

There’s a short clip at the end where we can watch Palin’s version of the Gaza Truth without being subjected to the whole show. But brief or not, her voice is still stunningly Banshee-like and her words beyond venomous.

It occurs to me that Palin’s offensive remarks about President Obama have been so shielded by America’s first amendment that she’s quite possibly experiencing a false sense of security about wielding similar remarks towards groups of people who don’t give a crap about honouring American rights at all.

Hey Sarah – the first amendment only protects you inside the US borders. But the internet is global. Good luck with that.

…only thing – these increased donations aren’t going to SarahPAC – this was in my email box this morning:

Sarah-Impeach Obama

Guess what happened after Sarah Palin called for President Obama’s impeachment…

We’ve had an absolute EXPLOSION of grassroots Democratic donations.

9560 donations have poured in to have the President’s back in just 24 hours. That’s JAW-DROPPING.

Now we’re just $28,890 short of hitting our huge $3 MILLION goal. That’s a massive show of support for President Obama — and super embarrassing for Palin and her ridiculous call for impeachment.

This email is from  the Democratic Headquarters .org website which I receive because I belong to Democrats Abroad.

Good job Sarah and keep up the good work!

 

*crickets*

Yes, THAT Phil Robertson. the millionaire who shed his suit to pretend to be a survivalist so he could bilk as many rednecks out of their cookie jar money as possible. The phony bible-thumper who preaches to old white men about how they are all entitled to shag underage teenage girls whenever they want and maintains without apology the hate-filled belief that all homosexuals belong in Hell. That Phil Robertson.

Palin introduced him at some Republican cultist get-together, refering to him as the Commander In Duck Chief. Erm the Duck Chief Commander. Umm maybe it was DUCK! CHIEF! THE COMMANDER’S HERE! I forget.

Can’t you just imagine Sarah running his campaign?

Interesting read this morning on The Hill:

Like she’s done so often during the past six years, Michelle Obama has stepped out of her pre-defined role as Lady of The White House  and into the more rough and tumble world of hands-on politicking.

Her focus on getting America to eat better and exercise more is already a large part of the Obama Administration’s legacy. But. There’s a subtle shift – a ramping up if you will – in her scheduled activities that I believe signals a lot more than just an administration trying to accomplish all they can before it’s time to leave the white porticos of Washington D.C.

In the article linked at the top, The Hill refers to Mrs. Obama’s broadening agenda as flexing her muscles. They describe her as being sought after by 2014 Democratic candidates for public endorsement. That despite Barack’s current poll numbers, everyone running for office wants a thumbs up from Michelle.

When Hillary Clinton made it known she wanted more than her role as First Lady, her advisors encouraged her to make a political name for herself by securing a term as Senator. This, they said, would give her political credibility,  authenticating her bid for presidency when the time came.

She played by all the rules, proved herself to be an effective senator and politician, ticked all the boxes that create a sound presidential candidate but in the end-game the delay cost her:  None of her advisors saw Barack Obama coming.  So while those of us who worked actively to seat a woman in the oval office, Mrs. Clinton lost her place on the 2008 ticket.

Sarah Palin marched toward the office of president on a very different path. Whether you believe her political career was contrived or not, built entirely on deception or not, she managed to go from total obscurity to national spotlight literally overnight. Her charismatic camera presence won over the hearts of a conservative party lacking in female leadership. Her brazen positioning herself as mother of a special needs child was pure gold, proffering a bottomless well of political currency that still pays her extravagant hotel bills today.

But Sarah Palin, with all her religious pandering and feigning of sacrifices made as the mother of a special needs child, failed to convince the vast majority of Americans that she was a capable leader and the election slipped through her fingers to land forever out of reach.

But before Sarah Palin slid back into obscurity she accomplished one immeasurable feat: She opened the door for other female aspirants to bypass the old rules of parliamentary procedure, showing by example that one needn’t spend years in elected positions to qualify for a run at the White House. Indeed, her own made-up record as mayor and governor demonstrated what a sham that requirement can be.

MichelleObamaMichelle Obama’s schedule for the remainder of 2014 reads like a page from the play-book of aspiring young candidates. No longer obligated to support her husband’s political agenda it could well be her turn to set an agenda of her own. She has name-recognition, a strong educational and legal background, diverse popularity, a stable family life with beautiful, intelligent, scandal-free daughters and a country filled with people who already adore her personally and share her values.

No one is going to tell her to take time out and run for a lesser office first. She’s got momentum now and it would serve her well to keep going.

The Obama-created election machine is already in place. If Michelle Obama continues on a path to build her political portfolio, I’m betting 2016 will find more than one woman vying for the office of President of the United States.  That said, an Obama or Clinton or a Clinton-Obama ticket in 2016 would suit me just fine :)

Thanks Sarah – for your unwitting contribution to Hillary and Michelle’s campaign. Go ahead. Pat yourself on the back! Your efforts  may yet have helped put a woman in the oval office!

Oh how we have longed for this day and it’s finally FINALLY here! The beginning of the ass-kicking Sister Sarah has deserved for almost two decades of maligning the teachings of that peaceful man…

From THE DAILY KOS

One of the most popular Christian Organizations in America is standing up to Sarah and her self-serving view of Christianity with public verbal bashings and PETITIONS!

Here’s a sample of what is in store for Darling Sarah in the days and weeks to come:
