Sunday Night Funnies
Just got this in an email.
Thank you R.D.!
The end of 2014 marks, as the ends of all years do, the creation of “best of” and “worst of” awards. It was in that spirit that the American Wishful Thinker awarded the half-term, half-wit Alaska governor and former disastrous vice presidential candidate, and most powerful female politician in 3 square miles of the back woods of Alaska, the “American Grifter of 2014” award in on Saturday.
As she contemplates her political future, such as a possible run for the presidency, Palin can indeed look back on 2014 as a year in which much was achieved, if one has no sense of reality. Let’s start with the drunken brawl Palin and her foul-mouthed daughter, Bristol, embarrassed themselves and the rest of the civilized world with. When one describes Palin as the most powerful female politician on the planet, one inevitably has to admit that one is either in an alternate reality or in serious need of mental health counseling, because that description gets eye rolls from the rest of the sane world.
2014 also marked the year that, not for the first time, Palin’s ass-kissers thought her political judgment proved to be superior to that of the current president. In 2008, when Russia’s Vladimir Putin was invading Georgia, Palin predicted that then Senator Obama’s indecision would be just the sort of thing that would encourage him to go after the Ukraine next. The foreign policy establishment ridiculed her for being a boob for suggesting such a thing. But, one can now ask, who is the boob and who the prophet? Well, Sarah Palin, matriarch of a drunken, brawling family, is still the boob, since Putin’s Russia’s economy is in the tank, and his oil reserves are not doing him any good. And the Russian Ruble against the American dollar?
Palin is headed for the Iowa Freedom Summit in 2015, an event that is attracting almost every presumed moron on the Republican side for president. Her presence there is fueling speculation for more of her failed ambitions. She recently hinted that she was thinking of elected office again because somewhere in Alaska a village is missing its idiot mayor, and because: Grifter. On the other hand, she has been doing rather well as a drunken brawler maker.
Any foolish Republican at the summit would make a mistake to kiss her posterior and solicit her approval and advice. The current competitors would do well to keep ignoring the fruitcake. Only four of the 15 congressional candidates endorsed by Palin nationwide this year won their primaries, a far worse record than the previous two elections, when Palin played a role as kingmaker and her approval was eagerly sought by candidates looking for an edge with Republican voters. Palin remains talented at raising money. “But her influence on the actual political process is diminishing rapidly,” said John Feehery, a Republican political consultant and former aide to GOP leadership in the House of Representatives.
Sarah Palin for President? Oh Please! Yes! Please! And Louis Gohmert for her running mate!
