I equate Sarah Palin with the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. None of them have a job and all three live for media attention. In conversation none of them appear to have anything higher than an 8th grade education. All three have been in trouble or investigated for illegal activity. And if I was hiring an employee for the drive through window at a burger joint, I can’t imagine any of these three being able to handle the job.
Sarah Palin is a quitter. After her failed attempt to win the Vice Presidency, she quit her job as the Governor of Alaska. She quit! Why? She claimed it was because she “didn’t want to put Alaskans through a lame duck session.” Are you kidding me? So if she was President she’d quit at the end of year 2 during the typical lame duck session when Congress changes over? Obama didn’t roll over and play dead during this past lame duck session. He got the new START treaty, the extension of unemployment and the repeal of gays being banned in the military. I guess Palin would have run for the hills, gotten her shot gun and gone coyote hunting instead, especially when she saw how little the president makes compared to what she can earn pimping a tell-all book and waving the flag on Fox.
I think Palin quit for two reasons; she was under investigation for ethics violations regarding her abuse of her position as governor to pursue personal grudges and vendettas and also because she became obsessed with the media attention and was jonesing for more. Yet she whined, bitched and moaned throughout the presidential campaign and afterward in her tell-all book that she was being treat unfairly by the media. I think the media, the late night comics and Saturday Night Live portrayed her pretty accurately. When Katie Couric asked her the easiest softball question a reporter can ask “What do you read?” she couldn’t name ONE single newspaper or magazine. Not one! Geez! I guess Highlights magazine didn’t come to mind at the time. She blamed her staff for not preparing her for the tough questions. Are you kidding me? Here are some of the highlights of her interviews:
Palin is in the midst of yet another media whore publicity stunt now that her realty show is over. She’s rented a bus with a paint scheme that screams “look at me, I’m a patriot.” Sarah doesn’t know true patriots don’t scream for recognition. She’s on a family summer vacation but calling it a “restore America tour” as if America needed a paint job and new counter tops. She’s paying for this with her SarahPac money which is now under investigation for illegal use of funds. She claims to be visiting America’s historical places but can’t explain how eating pizza with Donald Trump fits into the historical tour theme. Was there some Revolutionary War battle over pepperoni fought in Times Square against the British that I’m unaware of?
Palin claims this fact finding and America restoring bus tour is not a pre-run for the White House publicity stunt. Yeah right. Another run for Palin would be a dream come true for comics but would be a disaster for the Republican candidates. Not that I’d vote for one, but I think they deserve a fighting chance. If Palin runs it will truly become a three ring circus where the issues will be set aside for accusations of unfair media treatment and pictures of her dragging those kids around claiming to be a tiger mom. While during the campaign the Obamas said the children (theirs and Palins as far as media attention went) should be off limits and left their kids at home with grandma, Palin dragged her “special needs” baby and unwed knocked up daughter around like they were trophies. When the media asked her about it she whined they were picking on her. If the shoe fits……..
What I find Really Unreal is that people take Palin seriously at all. I’ve heard people justify her running because they heard John McCain say he thinks she can win. I just shake my head in disbelief. Do you not see he HAS to say that? The guy made her his running mate. He’d have to admit to making the biggest mistake of his political career if he came out and said anything else. No one takes McCain seriously any more no matter what he says. He has flip flopped on so many issues since the campaign he makes Edith from “All in the Family” look like Einstein.
Sarah (Paris) Palin needs to do the country a favor and just ride off in her chopper into the sunset toting her shotgun and go sit on the beach in Alaska and keep watch on those pesky Ruskies. The only time I want to see her on TV is as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice or Survivor.
