Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.
Tuesday, September 27, 2016

After keeping a low profile in the 2012 election, Sarah Palin wants to pump it back up after debuting the new prop comedy act she performed earlier in March at CPAC. SarahPAC — Palin’s “official” PAC — has released its first video of the 2014 election cycle — Loaded for Bear. And yes, it does feature an actual bear roaring.

Palin’s endorsements from the massive wave election that saw the party take back the House of Representatives are highlighted — after a few members of the lamestream media explain how important Palin is, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appears, saying the former governor of Alaska is “fearless… principled” and “she can pick winners.” The winners are then listed in order of their appeal to the far right: America’s Top Tea Partier Rand Paul (R-KY) is mentioned first, then Marco Rubio (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) and on.

Of course, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and Joe Miller — candidates Palin endorsed who lost — are not even mentioned.

The bulk of the video is a continuation of the attack on consultants that she began at CPAC. And when she says, “the last thing we need is Washington, DC vetting our candidates,” it’s clear that the real target of this video is Karl Rove, who has started a PAC designed to defeat unelectable Republicans in the primary. Palin seems determined to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    Sarah Who?

    How much longer must the Country endure Shrieking Sarah, the queen of the dupes and yahoos? Her presence on the ticket with McCain sank his campaign, because of her staggering ignorance of the serious problems confronting the nation and the world. Yet, here she is emerging from a temporary absence to the cheers of the rightwing dupes, yahoos, and just plain crazies. Millions of us had enjoyed not hearing or seeing her, and feeling contented comfort that she might be entering obscurity up on the tundra.

    I noticed the half-term governor has a new image. Instead of the evangelical soccer mom, she is a glamour girl. However, she hasn’t upgraded her intelligence level, yet. This is the ninny who thought that Russia being visible from the Aleutian Islands gave her foreign relations experience. She is just a backwoods person with a limited vision.

    • Sand_Cat

      I think you’re being entirely too kind.

      • Way to kind…In the years that she’s been around,I have never known her to say anything important.She’s good at trashing other people,but when you are as dense as she is,it takes a lot of gall to talk about people of intelligence. It’s amazing to me how a pretty face,can erase some people’s common sense.

    • lana ward

      You wish you were half as smart as Sarah Palin, loser!

      • Lisztman

        Cool. We’ve heard from lana ward. Now if lana actually had anything constructive to offer, it might be a welcome change.

        • lana ward

          Why has Obamas’ DHS stockpiled billions of ammo. Why won’t they tell congress what it is for? Why are 3000 armed vehicles and tanks on American streets. Why does the DHS have enough body bags for half the population??? Why did Obama say, “We need to create a Civilian National Security Force as big and and strong and as well funded as the Defense Dept???? WHY, smartness???? And why has training for Martial Law started????

          • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

            Lana, you’re seeing tanks on American streets! Billions of ammo! Do you have friends who also see this? Did you forget to take off your prpeller beanie today?

          • lana ward

            Satan Obama has sucked your brain dry, you’re an Obamabot fool!!

          • At least Obama had a brain for Satan to suck out, as you say. The thing is, God made all Republican without a brain, so Satan just took their souls!

          • lana ward

            On Youtube, “Obama thanks Satan”– very interesting

          • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

            So if I tell you that your name backwards “DrawAnal” means “excrement of Abgigi” in Sumerian and Babylonian (you can look up Abgigi, a progenitor no one would willingly claim), you would have to admit you are not human and are, instead, of diabolical origin.

            if you want to play the backwards thing and tell us that “Yes, we can” played backwards means something Satanic, then you have to believe that your name backwards is, at least embarassing if not totally disgusting. Go ahead look up the Assyrian-Babylonian “Abgigi” and see if you don’t want to put your head under a rock–but you started this assault, so let’s play it out.

            Your source on Youtube is as farcical drivel as I have seen online, but if that’s how you want to play it….

            And you might want to get a piece of toilet paper before you start because what you are is pretty disgusting.

          • lana ward

            I’ve seen pictures of him. You can tell they aren’t him, but look close. And just what are all the scars on his head from??? And on his neck???

          • lana ward

            Flies are buzzing around him all the time. 4 times they have landed on his face-and he doesn’t even have the sense to swat them away!!! The WH is infested with flies!!! Obama is Lord of the Flies–Satan. All those scars, some kind of made up Frankenstein!!!!

          • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

            Well, as “excrement of Abgigi,” of course, you’d know all about flies.

            And I end this website discourse with you because as I’ve learned, one can cure ignorance by reason, education, and training. But in your case, one simply can’t fix stupid.

            Goodbye, Lana. Perhaps God will take pity on you and relieve your misery.

          • lana ward

            Pervert!! You need to turn your twisted mind against those who put that up on Youtube, not on me!!! There is plenty more about that thing in the WH, you should have looked those up too!!!

          • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

            Dear Lana,

            So now you see Satan! I do hope that your friends and family love you enough to provide an intervention. Otherwise, it’s lfe in the funny farm for you. My sympathies on your unfortunate condition.

          • lana ward

            On Youtube, “Obama thanks Satan”

          • progressiveandproud

            I keep hearing this information from you; but, what are your sources?

          • lana ward

            Why bother. You won’t believe it until the MSM has no choice but to report it!!

          • progressiveandproud

            You are ridiculous with your nonsensical rants and raves, then you have the gall to refuse to cite sources with some MSM bull.

            If you can’t cite sources, don’t post!

          • lana ward

            Just don’t reply back, problem solved

          • Lana, just take you meds and go back to bed!! Problem solved!!

          • Actually, that is one of the most intelligent comments you have ever posted on this blog.

          • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

            Lana,

            Why not heed your own advice?

            You’re on a liberal website, like some unfortunate squatter, spending your days spewing bile. Why don’t you stop posting? You’re not about to change anyone’s ideas on this website.

            Now make yourself a nice cup of tea and lie down for another nap. When you wake up, you can go to some crazy right-wing, Tea Party, Karl Rove-sponsored website where contributors won’t see how emotionally and mentally damaged you are. You know–birds of a feather….

          • I’ve been in a number of U.S. cities last 4 years and have never once seen an “armed vehicle” or “tank” on the street. Also, training for Martial Law is common, if you read history you will see that G. Washington developed plans for possible use of martial law, so did other presidents, but the plans became publicly known under FDR, Nixon, Johnson, GW Bush and now Obama. Look at the divisions that are happening in our nation. Someone damn well better prepare for Martial Law!!

        • Is lana ward a real person or Jon Stewart having fun trolling this discussion?

          • Lisztman

            No. lana ward is only sort-of a real person. S/he stopped growing, mentally, somewhere around the age of eight.

      • Apparently, you are half as smart as Sarah Palin.

        • lana ward

          I wish I were half as smart as her–so do you!

          • ralphkr

            Actually, lana, we wish that you were 4 times as smart as Palin so you would be smart enough to attend the classes for the mentally challenged and learn how to make it on your own.

          • progressiveandproud

            Zing!! LOL!!

          • lana ward

            I won’t be able to make it on my own and neither will any of us when that SOB in our WH gets through with us. I can’t believe so many are just blind to what that Bast*** is doing. Pity!!

          • samshile

            Is this where the democrat third graders post?

    • progressiveandproud

      Having known a few backwoods people, I can say most have considerably more moral backbone than she has ever had in her life.

  • karl vs sarah cage match for the soul of the republican party? made-for-tv special!

    • disqus_CmPS82g3vc

      I’d pay to see that.

  • The sad truth is that while Sarah Palin is, without a doubt, an empty suit, she does appeal to people with an intellectual acumen similar to hers. Having said that, her ultimate goal has shifted from seeking elected office to accumulating wealth by appealing to the most sanguine Tea Party advocates. It should be readily apparent to everyone by now, that her objective is to replace Karl Rove as the recipient of huge amounts of money from people like the Koch brothers for the express purpose of replacing, not only Democrats, but moderate Republicans and Independents who have not passed the “purity” test.
    She may sound and act dumb, but she is crying all the way to the bank in the process.

    • Independent1

      I guess those of us who have a dim view of Palin, Bachmann, Rove, Paul, Beck, Limbaugh, and other extreme right-wing proponents, have to except the reality that there is still a sizeable portion of the American population who can’t see through the extremist, shortsighted, self-serving rhetoric and policies these people promote.

    • progressiveandproud

      She isn’t frightening to me because of her abilities or ideas. She is frightening because of her ability to sway certain groups and because of the power behind her. By power I mean Koch, etc. who are financing people like her.

      She’ll sell out this country in a heart beat if it enriches her and hers.

  • JDavidS

    “She plays by her own rules”… so does every other unhinged person. I think it’s the voices they claim to hear.

  • adriancrutch

    She won’t go away unless some people realise Jesus was just a country hick preacher,who gave the city jews a hard time. And paid for it! The Invisiable Sky Wizard won’t intervene for us,so we’re stuck with her. Unless Cheney takes her hunting?

    • progressiveandproud

      LOL!!!!!!! Biggest laugh of the day, and frankly, with my Mother-in-law next door in the process of dying, believe me, I needed it.

  • Lisztman

    I do have to say this is a remarkably well-produced ad. What the ad portrays is a modestly physically attractive individual, with a good speaking voice, with well-rehearsed and well-written scripts. No, that was not a sexist comment. Physical appearance plays a part in voter perception — witness the historical comments on Mr. Ryan’s piercing blue eyes, for example.

    When you can’t win on ideas (I didn’t hear any genuine ideas proposed, except the strange idea that Ms. Palin can actually do something besides endorsements) — win on patriotism. I didn’t see the Bible in any of the pictures. There WAS a shot of the U.S. Constitution. But I counted, in 2 minutes and 18 seconds, 37 different pictures that included one or more American flags, or a part of it, or items such as the flag wristband in one of them. That’s one or more flags every 3.73 seconds. If you take out the 2-second lead-in and the 7-second tail, it’s a flag image every three and a half seconds (3.48+). And I probably missed a few.

    Let’s hear it for scripting and flag-waving! Now if she had an original thought in that head of hers…

  • What about ignoring this woman completely? The more you write/talk about her, the more you make her relevant while she is not. You just give her free publicity. Whatever she says, whatever she does, just totally ignore it. If she will see nobody cares, she will go away. I praise Fox News (though I thought I would never do so). They have ignored her completely and other news outlet should do the same. I think this is the only medicine which can cure her.
