Sarah Palin attacks Obama 'lies' in rousing speech to conservative faithful
I can't describe how much I detest this woman. For being an (ex-? future?) politician, she never says anything intelligent -- everything is a sound bite and a photo opportunity. After she lost the vice presidency, she decided to go to Fox News and become a talking head where she continued to do the above and yet she's treated as some kind of elder stateswoman. And a Teleprompter joke? That's sooooo current!
(Her CPAC speech is linked below for anyone who wants to read her entire spiel.)

I love the fact that she is still talking and getting attention. It just illustrates how pathetic the Republicans are. You go, Sarah.

Except Obama isn't lying and she is, of course.
Well, I'm sure SHE believes what she's saying, so it's not so much that she's actively lying, merely regurgitating lies.

I heard a bit of her today on the radio when I was out driving around; that woman's voice is like finger nails on the chalkboard even without her nastiness & venom. Romney comes across liken Winston Churchill compared to her.
I like to look at it this way - she gets a slot at CPAC on Saturday around noon. Not prime time and probably when most people were at lunch. Not even the ultra conservative/creepiest of the creeps thinks she relevant anymore.

Actually, r18, all of Palin's kids are pretty retarded. Having seen them in clips from their various reality shows, it's obvious that none of them is rocking even an average IQ. They are inarticulate morons.
Also, it's extremely doubtful (as in impossible) that Palin gave birth to the officially retarded one, Trig. Most likely he's the child of one of her two older daughters. When you look at the various photos of Palin supposedly pregnant, and read her various inconsistent accounts of the pregnancy and birth, you realize how full of shit she is about the whole thing.
I'm convinced that fake pregnancy is why Palin won't run for office again. That plus it's not lucrative enough for a grifter like her.

One of her "gems" from yesterday:
[quote]“Background checks? Yeah, I guess to learn more about a person’s thinking and associations and intentions. More background checks?” she said. “Dandy idea, Mr. President — should have started with yours.”
The irony. This vile, despicable moron is not someone who should be talking about background checks.

Palin is the perfect example of mediocrity being considered the best of what you can be and the best in America. Just decades ago, we had politicians from both sides of the fence who could speak passionately and articulately. Now many politicians are reduced to spewing one-liners which they hope will become trending memes on the Internet. Anyone who dares to show any semblance of intelligence is automatically called an "elitist".

Blame McCain. If he had not selected that bimbo for VP candidate, no one would be paying the slightest bit of attention to her. But the fact that she will always be known as the former candidate for VP, as well as governor, means that the media continues to give her opportunities to shoot her mouth off that the rest of us aren't given.

OMG! She made a joke about her tit job!
[quote]. Palin also showed her humorous touch when she cracked a joke about her sex appeal as she talked about swapping Christmas presents of a rifle and a gun racks with her husband. "He's got the rifle, I got the rack," she said, to whoops from the crowd.
How can she say this without any sense of awareness that her speech was scripted by a writer, directed and produced by the by extreme wing in her party, and financed by their overlords Koch and Adelson?
[quote]"We are not here to rebrand a party; we are here to rebuild a country. We are not here to dedicate ourselves to new talking points coming from Washington DC," she said. "Even our guys in the GOP too often have a habit of reading their stage directions. They are being too scripted, too calculated."

R24 Let us assume for a minute that McCain had actually picked someone else like Huntsman, Cristie, or Lieberman as his running mate and Sarah Palin had remained in Alaska in relative obscurity as you suggest. How long do you think it would have taken before a Republican operative like Karl Rove or Roger Ailes would have come calling and put her on air at Fox News to exploit her 'charisma' as a pundit/commentator? She must have been seen as a rising star in the Republican party for McCain or his campaign managers to have even considered her in the first place. So I think that we can safely assume that Sarah Palin would still be on our tv screens (or at least on Fox) regardless of McCain's decision. The Republican party (the party of bigoted old white men) has about as much charisma as a dish rag and they needed someone youthful and attractive to convey their message of hate and ignorance to the public. If she were not campaigning with McCain, she would be working for some other Republican cause or candidate through FoxNews. An empty vesicle like Sarah Palin was and is their ideal candidate; she would be ratings gold for their target demographic (the FoxNews viewer) and she could be counted on to do or say anything the establishment wanted without any push-back. Even as the nominee, she was always just a malleable puppet who echoed the voices of her loudest supporters (i.e. the Tea Party).
Another viewpoint was that her nomination was solely a media stunt for attention that ultimately backfired. McCain grossly underestimated her impact on the ticket as he was obviously delusional thinking he would never be in a position where she would have to take over for him. All of the tv interviews with Katie Couric and the media proved that she was unsuitable to take the reigns of power if necessary. Regardless of the reasons for choosing her as the nominee, I think Palin would have still flourished in the Foxnews spotlight without the nomination. How long her rein at Fox would have lasted is debatable. Had she played ball with the establishment and dumped the Tea Party when they became troublesome she probably could of had Glen Beck's career but ultimately she dug her own grave with the 'blood libel' shit and ended up with Donald Trump's career, a tv personality that is barely tolerated but openly ridiculed.
All this speculation does elicit an interesting side question. Are media whores born or are they breed? Do unassuming people become fame whores when given a little fame and attention? The fact that Palin has attempted to remain relevant 5 years after the fact is a testament to her craven lust for fame and notoriety. And if by definition attention=success rather than achievement=success she could be said to have succeeded brilliantly. Traditionally does anyone ever remember the name of the losing VP candidate from a past election? Paul Ryan's name is fading fast and I personally can't recall today who Bob Dole's running mate was during the 1996 campaign. Yet we remember who Sarah Palin was or put another way she doesn't allow us to forget her.
As I am not a resident of Alaska, I can't speak to whether or not she would have been re-elected to a second term as governor or even if she would have continued to serve out her first term had the fame that came from McCain choosing her as VP not happened. If her current ego is any indication of her personality, my guess is that the first promise of her own show and a big paycheck from FoxNews would have been enough for her to ditch the governorship for greener pastures even without the McCain vp nomination. I also think that her you betch'ya shtick would have worn thin fast on native Alaskans and her true incompetence/stupidity would have become glaringly apparent when the nation slipped into recession in 2008-09 and she would have actually had to make tough decisions as governor which she avoided doing by abdicating her post after losing the Vice-Presidency to Biden.

I'm not a resident of Alaska, but from what I've gathered reading about her over the years is that she was rapidly alienating people within the Republican party there. She was developing a reputation as a user who dropped people who had helped her, sometimes acrimoniously, and moving on to others, creating enemies in her wake. Of course, that's true of many politicians, but it seemed to typify her career. Vanity Fair has a series of articles about her that touch on her political reputation in Alaska.
My sense is that she might have had a difficult re-election campaign. It may be that McCain's selection (on behest of the RNC) prolonged her political life. I'm not sure she was enough of a rising star to have attracted so much attention from national media to continue on that trajectory. Coupled with her interpersonal problems with former mentors and Republican figures in Alaska, she might have just fizzled away. She'd only been governor for about a year and a half and wasn't much of a working governor at that...

Palin is a grifter and the only way you can grift your heart out is when you have people's attention and present yourself as a powerful person that may be good to invite into your home only to discover after the grifter left that most of your household (including wood panels) is missing.
