Sarah Palin Signaled a New Low in American Politics; Trump Signals the End!

Shock is the only applicable descriptor to the reaction of McCain’s nomination of Sarah Palin in 2008.  Never before had a person so ill equipped to be the President come so close to being in charge of the country.  Sarah didn’t represent dedicated mothers or competent politicians. She pretended to be economically conservative, but she left Wasilla and the State of Alaska further in debt than when she took office.  She pretended to object to waste of taxpayer money, but authorized the building of the road to nowhere when she knew that the Bridge to Nowhere would never be built.  She used a Down’s Syndrome child for political gain.

She was unethical.  She was motivated by money and little else.  She pretended to be religious but never went to church.  She pretended to value traditional family values, but her 5 grandchildren, conceived out of wedlock, indicated that too was a farce.  Todd Palin, the stay at home dad, not only never stayed at home, but worked as a pimp.

She quit her job as Governor as soon as she could make more money being an Ex-Governor.

 

By October 2010 only 22% of Americans viewed her favorably.

The presence of Sarah Palin in American politics represented a new low. Palin’s famous explanation of Paul Revere cemented her place in history as the candidate who was the most ignorant, and the most embarrassing to America in history.

She used other people’s money to pay for her to fly in private planes and/or travel first class on public airlines. She endorsed Trump.

When Donald Trump entered the 2016 campaign, most people laughed at him.  Some even said he didn’t WANT to be President.   Most people thought our  political system of government could not get worse than Sarah Palin.  The election of Donald Trump proved that it not only could get worse, …it has.

Months after his inauguration, it is clear that Trump doesn’t want the job.  If he did, … “he’d nominate candidates to the 350 important but vacant administration jobs and get on with the job of governance. He doesn’t seem to want to be commander in chief of the armed forces, either, having outsourced Afghanistan troop-level decisions to Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Don’t burden him with foreign policy—which so daunts him that he’s postponed an official trip to Britain because (as some report) he fears the inevitable protests that will greet him. Nor is he much interested in upholding the oath he took on Inauguration Day, promising to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” He proves this lack of interest every day by ignoring the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause.”  He has violated his oath of office by his pardon of Sheriff Joe Arapio who not only violated the constitutional rights of citizens, but boldly violated a Court Order attempting to stop the ongoing violation of the constitutional rights of Arizona citizens.

Being President was harder than he thought.

He disdains the rule of law. He’s trampling norms of presidential behavior. And he’s bringing vital institutions down with him.

“Donald trump is testing the institution of the presidency unlike any of his 43 predecessors. We have never had a president so ill-informed about the nature of his office, so openly mendacious, so self-destructive, or so brazen in his abusive attacks on the courts, the press, Congress (including members of his own party), and even senior officials within his own administration. Trump is a Frankenstein’s monster of past presidents’ worst attributes: Andrew Jackson’s rage; Millard Fillmore’s bigotry; James Buchanan’s incompetence and spite; Theodore Roosevelt’s self-aggrandizement; Richard Nixon’s paranoia, insecurity, and indifference to law; and Bill Clinton’s lack of self-control and reflexive dishonesty.”

In August a gallup poll showed Trump had fallen to a 34% approval rating.

Donald Trump is destroying our country, and we’re letting him do it!  Trump is increasing his net worth at our expense!!!

  1. She terrified me. She was the start. But I thought she was a monstrous blip. I never could have imagined how much worse it could get. I had no idea the propaganda from the wealthy RW power/corporate interests had completely severed so much of the rural electorate from reality. It’s obvious the southern strategy has been working for years. The cultist following she developed should have been a clue, They have been told by outlets they trust to hate and mistrust the big vast federal “Gubmint” and blame minorities … and that is exactly what they do. They care more about DACA than losing their own health insurance. They are in a new category of ignorance. How do we survive millions and millions of these voting idiots. These mindless fools think the uber wealthy and anti-regulation mega corporations (many of them big energy and insurance) are their friends. Brain damage that severe cannot be recovered from.

  2. Malia –

    Everything in your article is true – with special emphasis on your closing paragraph.

    We are in a very difficult situation right now. The Repubs – lacking souls and spines – are only focusing on achieving their malicious agenda. We will weather this – it will be very difficult – but when people begin to get impacted with what the Repubs are doing – people will react.

    Many of us focus on our daily needs, appointments and responsibilities. But – lacking healthcare as could happen -millions will revolt. Perhaps at that point the mindless stooges who support Trump will be hit upside the head and realize they have been conned.

    We must have faith and keep doing our best.

      It’s so sad that people won’t realize this until they are laying in the hospital dying and then it’s too late to vote. Maybe that will be the Republican bumper sticker in 2018…Dead People Can’t Vote!

  3. Dear John McCain’s Brain Cancer –

    Can you please pick up the pace? The guy who demonstrated a complete interest in Self by picking Sarah Palin in 2008 is now possibly going to vote in favor of the latest version of the GOP’s “Let’s Erase Our Black President” anti-Obamacare bill.

    (They’re using the September 30 “deadline” to avoid a democratic filibuster, whereby after sept 30 would then require 60 senate votes. Can you believe the government is playing these games?????)

    OBAMACARE OR NO OBAMACARE, MCCAIN, CANCER WILL PROBABLY SOON GET YOU!!!! MAVERICK OR NOT.

    Retire, take it easy for your remaining time on earth. Show us your humanity for f***’s sake!!

    While they’re at it, put through the Retroactive Forced Sterilization Of Republican Women Act Of 2017.

    Signed,
    Mother Earth

  4. Sarah looks so radiant and angelic in that photo. How wrong we have all been to not see her as Our Savior. May she forgive us. She is Our Living Divinity. Where can a peasant get an autographed copy of her memoir, The Bible?

  5. I’ll never forget when she was introduced in 2008 and paraded her tribe out on stage. How the hair stood up on the back of my neck, “there’s something VERY wrong with this picture,” and, boy, we didn’t even know the half of it!

    I really appreciate your words on all of this, Malia, because I ran out months ago.

    1. CIP,
      Every day I think that it’s time to stop writing, but then I read the headlines and I can’t believe what is happening in the country. I’d like to spend my time doing other things, but the level of dysfunction in our government is soo soo bad that I feel compelled to continue.
