For some time many readers have declared that Sarah Palin is delusional. Sarah has suggested that she is often a victim of the “lamestream” media taking her words out of context. Thus to be fair, here is the entire Facebook post of Sarah Palin:
So Hillary’s campaign stylist apparently leaked to the NYT she wore a white pantsuit to her convention as homage to the democrat female politician, Geraldine Ferraro, who’d also worn white. I was asked why I wore white, too. For the record – I wore it in ’08 because it was the outfit with no baby barf encrusted on the shoulder.
From other appearances, I thought Palin could identify colors. I thought she was particularly fond of black and white.
I remembered John McCain wearing a white shirt. However Sarah was NOT wearing white. She was wearing a champagne colored top, black skirt, and black shoes. Yet in her mind she was dressed like Clinton:
Like Mother, Like Daughter. In 2008 Sarah Palin used Trig to promote herself at the Republican Convention.
In August of 2008 Bristol was still 17 and too young to vote. Now that Bristol is an adult, and seems to treat Trig as if he was her son, she does what any mother would do. She has advertised her favorite political candidate, by dressing up her childwith Down’s syndrome, in a hat advertising Donald Trump’s make America Great Again slogan.
I guess Bristol didn’t realize that some people might suggest that only a handicapped child or someone with a really low IQ would support Donald Trump for President.
Worse yet, Bristol doesn’t know, or care, that Trump has publicly ridiculed the disabled.
For years we have dissected the story told by Sarah Palin regarding the birth of Trig. Probably the most compelling evidence that she wasn’t pregnant was the photos depicting her days before she allegedly gave birth.
Now that the focus is Bristol’s latest pregnancy, it is important to compare photos again.
Here is a picture taken from the RNC at the end of August of 2008, when Bristol was purportedly 5 months pregnant.
Here is the latest post from Bristol’s blog declaring that she is 6 months pregnant.
Certainly Bristol looked more pregnant in 2008, when she was supposedly 5 months pregnant, than in this picture in which Bristol reportedly is 6 months pregnant.
Note that Bristol explains that she is 6 months pregnant in the picture posted, but she noticeably doesn’t disclose when that picture was taken. Also notice the bright sunshine, and her lack of a coat or jacket. Compare it to what other people we wearing in Alaska on the same day.
Pictures don’t lie. People were wearing coats and jackets. The high temp was 61 degrees and the low was 42. Where was Bristol’s coat? Why wasn’t Bristol at work in the middle of the day on a Tuesday? Was Dr. Jack-me-off’s office closed?
In spite of declining approval ratings for President Obama, the Republican National Committee continues to be in “free fall.” The self declared de facto leader of the Republican Party, Michael Steele, is at least partially responsible. Consider the following embarrassing moments for the RNC:
Voyeur – While promoting itself as the party of conservative values, and Christian morals, the RNC paid for some of its supporters to enjoy an evening at the Voyeur West Hollywood. It wasn’t the alcoholic beverages served at the club that attracted the attention of the “lame-stream media”. The fact that it was advertised as an S&M club was of concern to some. However almost all who learned about the event were offended by the notion that some of the “entertainers” were suspended from the ceiling in nets, and contorting themselves as though having sexual intercourse. Most people learning of the incident were not concerned with the type of birth control utilized by the “entertainers”, whether they were “pro-choice,” or what their sexual preferences might be when they were not “entertaining.”
Michael Steele has repeatedly spoken out expressing personal views, which are contrary to those of the party:
- Abortion – Steele said that abortion was an “individual choice” and opposed a constitutional ban on abortion.
- Homosexuality – Contrary to the “pray-away-the-gay” mentality of the RNC, Steele analogized that position by saying that “… oh, like, tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being gay… (is like saying)…tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being black.”
- War in Afghanistan – Speaking at a GOP fundraiser, Steele described the war in Afghanistan as “a war of Obama’s choosing,” He explained that the war was “unwinnable”. Most would consider the first statement erroneous. Suggesting that the war is “unwinnable” put Steele at odds with the vast majority of his own party, who has advocated dedication of more money and troops to that war.
- Rush Limbaugh – Steele voiced his opinion that Limbaugh’s shtick is “incendiary” and “ugly”.
One Republican strategist referred to Steele as the “deepdoodoo Chairman.” Another Republican official compared Steele to the Deepwater Horizon disaster, explaining, and “…there isn’t a cap in the world big enough to shut Michael Steele down.” The dilemma for the GOP is whether to remove the party chairman relatively late in a campaign session. Steele represents one of the few prominent African Americans in the Republican Party, so his removal could hurt the party’s image with African Americans, and with more moderate white independent voters who represent a key voting bloc.
One blogger, Kevin Williamson, suggested that Palin would be a “much better RNC chairman than a presidential candidate”. His rationale was that Palin is good at raising money and she would not get herself “entangled in the minutiae of policy-development, which has not been her forte.” To suggest that Palin’s forte has not been policy-development may be the understatement of the 21st Century. Her statement that the solution to the Deepwater Horizon disaster is to build a dike, will be remembered long after Grandma Palin has moved on to the big cave in the sky, where all the Mama-Grizzlies live according to God’s plan.
The fundamental error in Williamson’s analysis is the assumption that there should be ANY role for Sarah Palin in the Republican Party. Some Republicans don’t view her favorably. American Conservative Magazine reports that even among Tea Party supporters, who only constitute about 18% of the total electorate, Palin only has a 66% approval rating. This conservative publication reports that in 2012, if Palin were to be nominated by the RNC, “Palin would be hard-pressed to break 40% of the vote, and that the 2012 election would be the “most lopsided election victory for the incumbent President since 1984. Ibid.
Surely the Republican Party will heed the warnings of Daniel Larison of the American Conservative Magazine, and seek another leader for the RNC. If the RNC nominates this dike building, gun toting, anti-choice, homophobic, book banning, anti-civil rights, bigoted, unethical, intellectually-impaired, friend of Glenn Beck (the lying sack of dog mess), who is admired by Ted Nugent and Rick Perry, and who treasures moose eye-balls, then a tsunami may be headed for America. If the RNC elevates Sarah Palin to the position as leader of the RNC, or nominates her as their presidential candidate in 2012, then they should reap the whirlwind. Many, who have identified themselves in the past as Republican, may no longer wish to be associated with the party of Sarah Palin. If the Katie Couric interviews were not sufficiently instructive to the leaders of the GOP, consider just a few of the candidates endorsed by Palin in her infinite wisdom:
- Vaughn Ward, the candidate who didn’t know or care if Puerto Rico was a country or territory and showed the incredibly foolish judgment to plagiarize a speech of Barack Obama.
- Carly Fiorina, the candidate who, during her vast experience as a CEO, outsourced thousands of American jobs overseas, and who only regret was that she didn’t fire the people sooner.
- Nikki Haley, the candidate who denied having extra-marital affairs, but whose “lover” produced multiple pages of phone records demonstrating calls that occurred in the middle of the night and lasted longer than an hour.
- Star Parker, the candidate who admitted to having used abortion as her preferred form of birth control, had four abortions, committed welfare fraud, admitted to armed robbery and shoplifting, and who was familiar with multiple forms of illegal drugs.
- Sharron Angle, who is running for Harry Reid’s seat, has expressed her desire to “phase out” Social Security and Medicare.
- Rick Perry who indicated that the Gulf Oil disaster was an “act of God”, and who worked an average of 7 hours per week during the last 4 months.
Given the type of people who earn Palin’s vote of confidence, just imagine for a moment what Palin’s cabinet might look like if she were ever elected. The cabinet would be made up of reality television show stars. The cabinet would look like the list of guests on the Jerry Springer shows for an entire season.
