Political Discourse in America

Mindlessly chanting “USA, USA, USA!” the audience at CPAC shouts down a handful of “Occupy” protesters that were attempting to disrupt a speech by former political celebrity Sarah Palin with inane chants of their own.

Evidently, the CPAC attendees “won” the contest.

Update: Another example of lofty debate from the CPAC event… In this instance, conservative provocateur Andrew Brietbart repeatedly commands a noisy group of “Occupy” protesters to “behave” themselves, then goes on to call them “filthy freaks and animals” before angrily demanding they stop raping and murdering people.

Faux Wingnut Outrage: Xmas Edition

Former half-term Alaska Governor, wannabe celebrity, and brain-addled Fox News “analyst” Sarah Palin thinks the Obama White House’s official greeting card is “odd” because it fails to adequately highlight traditions like “family, faith and freedom.”

Evidently, Palin speaks for many rabid right-wing Obama haters out there… at least insofar as being shamelessly petty, hypocritical, and completely fucking ignorant.

No More Palin to Kick Around?

We can only dream…

But Lawrence O’Donnell gives us some hope by quite plausibly suggesting that Palin’s recent “mean girl” scraps with other Fox News talent may well be foreboding signs that her days are numbered.

Please, please, please… let it be true! Imagine – Sarah Palin no longer having a platform from which to routinely contaminate the airwaves with her demented lies, conniving fakery, and insufferable twaddle!

Shrill Bitch Alert!

Video of Sarah Palin squawking at speaking to “supporters” of a newly formed group called “Tea Party of America” today at a rain-soaked rally in Iowa… and covered LIVE by Sun News! Go figure.

In a Godly portent worthy of Michele Bachmann, “thunderstorms moved through Indianola in the hours before the much-anticipated event… sending drenched Palin supporters running for cover.”

The World According to Palin

Everything you need to know about the outrageous fakery and stunning ignorance of Sarah Palin is neatly summarized in her version of Paul Revere’s so-called “Midnight Ride” delivered on her ludicrous self-promotional bus tour the other day…

“He who warned, uh, the the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringin’ those bells and, um, by makin’ sure that as he’s ridin’ his horse through town to send those warnin’ shots and bells that, uh, we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.”

Which begs the question, raised here by Thomas Roberts filling in on The Last Word program: why would anyone in their right mind trust Palin’s interpretation about anything (potential effects of not raising the U.S. debt ceiling, in this example) given her obvious lack of elementary knowledge about even the most basic facts?

Sadly, the answer is simple. She appeals directly to the countless millions of Americans that are every bit as woefully ignorant and catastrophically dumb as she is.

Palin Supports Apple Pie!

Faux biker chick Sarah Palin and the First Dude at the “Rolling Thunder” event today. Good grief. What a circus.

As a prelude to her self-enrichment and publicity enhancement bus tour (the ostensible purpose being to “educate” the rubes of the eastern seaboard about American history) the squalid, money-grubbing Palin brood pandered to thousands of veterans that, inexplicably, parade around Washington every Memorial Day on loud, gaudy motorcycles in support of fellow soldiers they believe are still lost and unaccounted for in utterly pointless wars on the far side of the world.

Amy Myers v. Michele Bachmann

A 16-year-old sophomore at Cherry Hill High School East in New Jersey has challenged Michele “Crazy Eyes” Bachmann to a debate.

In a letter sent to the congresswoman in April, she wrote: “I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics.”

Myers says she has nothing personal against Bachmann – she just thinks her ceaseless stream of gaffes and inaccurate statements are an embarrassment to all women with political ambitions.

“It took until the 19th amendment for women to be able to vote, and now it seems like the most famous women in politics are kind of jokes,” Myers said.

If Bachamnn declines or continues to ignore the request (which she has done so far) now would be a tremendous opportunity to see this plucky student to call out Sarah Palin for the same challenge given the failed veep, half-term governor of Alaska, and Faux News pundit is presently on a mission of “educate” the benighted folk between Washington, D.C. and New England about her own twisted interpretation of the historical roots at the foundation of America.

Update: Here’s another great kid who successfully took on the kooky creationists in Louisiana and has also challenged Michele Bachmann to back up some of her outright fabrications.

Sarah Palin’s “Look at Me!” Tour

This weekend launches Sarah Palin’s “One Nation Bus Tour” which is causing some to question her reasons for this bizarre excursion.

Palin’s PAC is withholding details about the stunt, save to say that the bus tour will start in Washington on Memorial Day (crashing the “Rolling Thunder” event, apparently) and then make its way through New England to “educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles.”

Palin Withdrawal

Chris Matthews features a video from Funny or Die imagining how the effects of a “media blackout” on Sarah Palin during the month of February might have played out…

The folks at The Daily Caller were appalled that Tweety would promote a video with “sexist and derogatory attacks” on Palin, but evidently, they couldn’t resist posting it either, using the lame excuse of calling out Matthews as their vehicle to do so.

The End of Palin?

Is it possible that Sarah Palin’s aspirations as a political celebrity and (heaven help us) presidential candidate may have suddenly flamed out? As an inveterate detractor of the failed VP, half-term Alaska Governor, and flippant Facebook phenom, I most certainly hope so!

Liberal talker Papantonio may be somewhat off-base in many of his criticisms here, but I believe he’s bang on in terms of his insightful observation that the more Palin is exposed to viewers, the less appealing she becomes. And that’s a very hopeful thing, because it signals that a vast majority of Americans now recognize what many of us knew right from the outset when it comes to Sarah Palin: “There’s no there, there.”

Golly-Gosh Update:

Here’s Palin’s insincere, self-serving response to the tragic shooting in Arizona that some have described as being “presidential” in nature:

Too bad that Palin just couldn’t resist the temptation to play the victim, claiming to be the target of a supposed “blood libel” directed by reckless “pundints” in the media against her and straining credulity by asserting that the violent actions of a deranged individual happened within a vacuum, completely absent of any context whatsoever.
