Sarah Palin Now More Or Less Queen Of The Teabaggers

Did you read Sarah's spirited defense of herself the big Tea Party Convention™ yesterday in USA Today? No? That's OK, I read it for you.

First of all, the short piece contains conventionally structured sentences and no made-up words*, so chances are high that she didn't write it herself. But anyway, the byline and photo make it clear that these are at least Sarah Brand Thoughts.

My favorite part is when she defends the event's ludicrous ticket prices by saying that, hey, those who can't attend can watch her speech on the Facebook and the Twitters, so it's egalitarian after all. This is funny because the event organizers only conceded to allow this a couple of days ago; before, the event was totally, completely closed to non-attendees, including the evil non-Fox/non-Breitbart press.

The best news, though, is that Sarah uses the "editorial" as a way to publicize her involvement with future tea parties and rallies. Yay! This is how she'll regain some of that magic we saw during the election when Sarah dangerously whipped up crowds at McCain campaign events. Should be memorable! Due to her nearly complete lack of discipline, I'm sure there will be some... interesting pronouncements from La Palin at these confabs as she gets swept up in the excitement, so that'll keep us in chuckles well into the future.

Here's Sarah's tricky maneuver with which she'll have to contend: how is she going to reconcile her Queen of the Teabaggers status with her intent to campaign for McCain against JD Hayworth, ultra-"conservative" darling of Tea Party crowd?

My guess is that her appearances on behalf of McCain will be very, very low-key. Either way, though, it doesn't really matter, because her fans have never demanded anything even remotely resembling consistency from her.

Go Sarah!

*Note: it does, however, contain the unforgivable phrase.

Thank you for your brave heart and strong stomach- reading the article for us, reading USA Today for us, for God's sake. Damn, you are good.

I have this vision of Sarah at any McCain events. She smiles, is sorta quiet for a moose-whippin' gal from Alaska and then when she exits the stage or venue with John, always choosing to be on his left, we will see what is imprinted on the back of all of her egalitarian-'n-shit-populist clothing... "I'm With Stupid" arrow, points to right.

Ahem. That's just how I see it.

Wow, great minds think alike. I just wrote a rant-a-torial post about Madam Teabagger.
I love it when she goes off script and speaks off the cuff.
She's like a Japanese game show with all that wacky talk and mugging for the cameras.
I'll bet McCain finds a way to decline her kind offer to stump for him. It'd be like having George Bush helping out.
Besides, I'm sure Cindy would love to scratch her stupid eyes out.

It wouldn't make sense for McCain to decline, though. At this stage, he needs her more than she needs him. More likely is that she'll find a reason not to do it. But like I said, it's not like her followers demand consistancy.

At the end of the day, the bottom line is that most people don't think outside of the box.

People may deride clichés as crap, but they are the McDonald's of the language, sneered at and incredibly successful.

As for the many splits and fissures in the GOP, maybe they should change their mascot from the elephant to the hyena.

That's a great pic! From now on, whenever I write about Palin, I'm linking to this picture! You should do one of Glenn Beck next!!

Sweet Jesus on the Cross, man, THANK YOU, but just take a bullet for me next time instead!

Yes, she clearly did NOT write that article.

I love how she's gone all Hollywood and started wearing a more neutral shade of lipstick.
It matches her waxy white skin color and reminds us all how lost she is without high priced stylists.
And she's got to stop shaving off her eyebrows and reapplying them with a brown-ink Sharpie.

ATEOTD, I will give her a smidge of credit for showing up after the others dropped. I can't wait. Hilarity is sure to ensue.

Miss Sarah--oh, so quotable, but only in speechifyin'.
