Republicans have a problem. The most-talked-about figure in the GOP is a reality show star who cannot be elected. And yet the same leaders who fret that Sarah Palin could devastate their party in 2012 are too scared to say in public what they all complain about in private.
I’ve never seen Joe’s show but I suspect he is speaking for many Republicans who are, indeed, scared to go up against this woman. Why? I have no idea, but while I do my best to ignore her, it’s hard not to hear the Crazy that comes out of her camp on a regular basis (she just accused a non-citizen of the U.S. of committing treason while somehow blaming Obama for it–and no, I do not follow her on twitter).
Slowly, though, they are speaking out. Palin would get destroyed in an actual election, the Booze Cabinet stands by that prediction! But I would be amazed if she got that far: the GOP candidate for president? Wow, what a disaster that would be, for all of us. We’d have to hear that voice screeching at us for the next 2 years and wall-to-wall coverage of every burp and fart out of her. No, right-wingin’ conservative nutballs, please…NO!
Well, this is pure genius… “Spankin’ Sarah Palin: A clown short of a circus“!
If Sarah Palin is not some kind of a massive political joke in the USA, wheeled out to liven up the political scene from time to time with nonsensical and pastiche (one hopes) displays of sheer and utter ignorance, then it is worrying … she shows the tact of a boorish drunkard bawling obscenities at a funeral. … a real-life female version of Homer Simpson-cum-Belching Barney at Mo’s, giving us ever-more hilarious soundbites as she sets herself up as the dumbest woman on Earth.
