Background Check


Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, speaks in front of Wooly the Wolverine, the West High School mascot, during a campaign appearance in Sioux City, Iowa, Saturday, Oct. 25, 2008. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)


Crazy eyes! Aw, things don't seem to be going so well for Sarah these days. Her approval ratings continue to sink, kids dislike her, women can't stand her, etc. And now she's even bickering with the people trying to get her elected:

"She's lost confidence in most of the people on the plane," said a senior Republican who speaks to Palin, referring to her campaign jet. He said Palin had begun to "go rogue" in some of her public pronouncements and decisions.

"I think she'd like to go more rogue," he said.


Sarah losing confidence in her handlers may be, in fact, the first glimmer of intelligence I've detected in her. As for going rogue? Oh, yes please! Let Sarah be Sarah! Yay!

That's not a very good makeup job for more than $1,000 a day. She should go more rouge.

Princess, your perspicacious posting "Body Language" from a couple days ago has proven your potential as a prognosticator.
We are not worthy!

I was waiting for you to post on this topic Princess... from the CNN.com article on the same issue, one McCain adviser said, "she is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone. She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else."

She doesn't even take advice from the First Dude? Can we say Megalomaverick? She seems convinced that this election is all about her, or at least that it should be. I see a melt-down coming in her personal life after the election.

She still doesn't seem to get it that practically all of the exposure she's gotten is bad for her, regardless of the fact that she also has more supporters than she ever has had in her career ('how can it be that bad if so many people love me?'). After the election she'll be even more busted for her ethics violations in her current job, and by January 20 only the most unserious of her current devotees will still be behind her.

The Republicans will wash their hands of her too. They're gonna need a unity message of their own to have any hope of getting anywhere in the next few election cycles, and she's more divisive than President Lame Duck was at his divideriest. The neocons and the social right will have to take a back seat to the 'real' conservative wing, and the leaders of the GOP reconstruction (hopefully people like Hagel) will be happy to throw this wackadoo under the bus to help achieve that end.

I hope at least. I'd like to see the dialog move toward being between progressives and classic conservatives rather than between paleoliberals and theo-imperialists. Posthumously flaying this "Hyena in SoCa" would be a good start down that road.

The good news is that the neocons will be almost completely powerless if/when Dems win the White House, the House and the Senate. They'll be totally, completely without an audience. The theocons, of course, will always have their loony followers, but even that is seriously splintering, and like I said, the younguns totally dislike Sarah.

I think that she should be able to take all her new clothes home, though, sort of like getting the Home Version of Hollywood Squares after losing the actual game.

Princess, The last three locations you have shown Sarah are a high school gym, a pro bass shop and an airplane hanger. My crappy hair band did that same tour in '79.

I can see Argentina from my house.

Atoz said...

I think Sarah needs to have the fabulously expensive makeup artist do her hands too. Not a flattering shot of those hands. And they don't seem to be in the same color family as her face at all.

More rogue? You mean she's been restrained?

Oh, I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

desertwind said...

I'm wishin' and hopin' and a-thinkin' and a-prayin' that she cracks completely and starts speaking in tongues.

Her gibberish now has a resemblance to English, but just wait! ammulikilum alcidmidnd diruridndnds so so so long.

FranIAm said...

Sarah goes rogue! Wow, is that like going cowboy, but Alaskan style?

Fireblossom said...

My word, your blog is an absolute hoot. I haven't giggled so much since My Little Pony began to recite the Book of Judges backwards.

Sara going rogue? Does this mean she'll be overturning Land Rovers with her dangerous tusks? Or more like, she'll be photographed at a nightclub catfighting with Jessica Biel over Justin Timberlake as the First Dude loses himself in airplane glue and reruns of Sgt. Preston of the Yukon?

My friends, the mind fairly reels.

Damn, Wooly the Wolverine! I thought it was Levi.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Are you sure that's a high school mascot and not Sarah's new VEE PEE logo?

AerialPJ said...

OMG...first there was the desire to be Vice President, then the extravagant clothes that will be donated to charity and finally this pose...

It's Evita...it's Evita, she's been reincarnated!!!!

Palin is a bloody grifter. Her whole family feeds at the public trough. She needs to be driven into obscurity. Seriously. No more of this cheating crap.
