Palin Practices Spokesmodel Poses


Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin speaks during the Republican Governors Association conference in Miami, Florida. Palin led a rallying call Thursday for Republicans to rebuild after their bruising election defeat, urging the party to adapt to its new minority status and fight for the future.

I like how it says "Licy" in the background right next to her head. Did Sarah have any special insights for her Republican Governor colleagues today? Are you kidding? No, just spokesmodelly platitudes:

"We are now the minority party, but let us not resolve to become the negative party. Losing an election does not have to mean losing our way," defeated vice presidential nominee Palin told the annual Republican governors' conference here.

"It is time for us to go our own way and leaving neither bitter nor vanquished, but confident in the knowledge there will be another day and we will gather once more with new strength. We'll rise to fight again."


Substance-free as usual. There will be another day! We'll rise to fight again! Well, she did say once that her favorite films were those feel-good sports movies from the 80s. Now she's quoting from them!

Personally, I preferred Tim Pawlenty. Why? Because his speech recommended hairdo vigilance. No, really:

"This party's going to require more than just a political comb-over. There's a lot of work in terms of making sure we have ideas that improve people's lives and that we properly communicate them," he told Fox News Thursday.


A political comb-over! What a great way to describe the waning days of the McCain campaign! Why didn't I think of that?

I'm trying to decide if those are animatronic or puppet hands. But as a sometimes puppetmaker I gotta say I'm leaning toward animatronic.

Political comb-over! Is Tim Pawlenty on your payroll?!

As for her hands - um, I feel a tad icky thinking about Todd and the size of his, um his snow machine. Eew ick, will this get me deleted? I understand if it does.

Plus her hair! Gone is the tight-ass school marm governa-matrix bun! She has a sexy (ick squared) tousled post coital hairdo going.

I am so going to get bounced from here, aren't I?

Right under "licy" it says "tics". LOL. Guess they were too po' for the rest of those words?

Rise to fight again! Not to gain the trust of the people, or to explain ideas clearly or rule wisely, rise to fight!

That couldn't possibly be part of the problem, could it?

She's awful, but her hair does look good there. Why can't she just go back to being our Alaskan wank fantasy, and leave the lower 48 alone?

I think she'd make a nice weather-girl. Can't you just see the cold front?

I cannot get past her hate filled, barely-understandable as English rhetoric. No, I do not want to have sex with her. I don't get it. She reminds me of some gals from Bakersfield.

Looks like Farrah Fawcett's hairstylist is on Eliza Knowittle's payroll nowadays.

Someone on MSNBC said her speech was considerably lackluster without having it written by GOP professionals.
When left to her own devices, her speeches sound as stupid as her extemporaneous comments.
In fact, I think she may have been Ashcroft's lyricist on his smash hit, "Let the Eagle Fly."

Karen Zipdrive said...

Wait!
In that photo, is she doing one of those "$5 foot-long" ads for Subway?
Gotta love the black pleather, too.

I think that in future, I shall always refer to her by the spiffy drag name provided by this snap: Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and only Thrilla from Wasillpa, Miss Licy Tics!

Sarah went to college because she wanted to be a sports announcer. She has the 'spokesmodel' stuff down and I suppose as long as the sport was hockey or 'snowmobile racing' she could do it okay. Seems like most sports announcing is spouting banal generalities anyway and we know she can do that. As long as she was on TV I don't think she would preceive it as a come down from Governor.

She's definitely hurtin' for some 50K hair and makeup artistry. I wish she would just realize she's not a politician and go into her true calling: porn star or Avon lady.

I wonder if Condi lent Palin her invisible sphere for this shot??

zoe said...

Oh, it just occurred to me...she is acting out a scene from the Godfather..you know,the wedding scene, when Sonny Corleone's wife is describing the size of Sonny's...snowmobile. So I wonder who she is describing here? Toddler? Johnny? perhaps Lowry? Naw....

One of the anonymous multitudes above reminded me of one of my favorite movies I forget about sometimes. Sarah Palin = Nicole Kidman in "To Die For".

Nicole's so much smarter, though!
