Palin's Big Schtick

      Lost amidst the din of incredulous and appalling reactions to $Rmoney's epic screw-up regarding the U.S. consulate attacks, was the absolutely sleazy and vile - i.e. completely in character - bile that was puked up by the Wasilla Hairball, Sarah Palin. 

      The ensuing pile-on and repudiation against the Republican presidential candidate smirking asshole was immediate and expected (see an excellent Alaskan perspective from Stonekettle Station here), but in a perversely hopeful indication that nobody really gives a damn anymore what she thinks, The Half-Baked Alaskan's commentary largely escaped local attention
"We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one."
     Palin's desperate ankle-bites to reclaim relevance by flinging poo from the sidelines sank to new depths with this recent posting to her filtered Facebook echo-chamber. Eager to reach bottom first, Caribou Barbie wasted no time pirouetting atop the bodies of our murdered diplomats, which were still conveniently warm enough for her to use as convoluted props for another cheap shot at President Obama. The Quitter's propensity for shameless exploitation effectively perverted an opportunity for us to briefly unite as Americans, to maybe transcend the partisan rhetoric long enough to process this national emergency. Or at the very least, wait until the facts are in.
"First, the statement does not use the word ‘apology’ or ‘apologize’ and does not use any synonym for that word. There is no statement here that says, ‘We are sorry.’ 
"Second, the grammar of the statement condemns the actions of a third party. An apology, to be pedantic, is when the first party says to the second party, ‘I have offended you and I am sorry.’ This statement condemns a third party -- misguided individuals -- that does not officially represent the United States. The term ‘individuals’ dissociates them from the U.S. Therefore, it's impossible to say that this is an apology from the U.S. to anyone.
     But for opportunistic, lying scum like $Rmoney, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus ("Obama sympathizes with attackers in Egypt. Sad and pathetic.") and the Iquitarod Queen herself, any tragedy - even on the anniversary of 9-11 - is the perfect time to start milking it for all it's worth... to them.

"Freud just called - your innuendo's showing..."

     Palin seems to be the moral equivalent of a buoyant turd that refuses to stay flushed, and so keeps stubbornly resurfacing: stuck to the bottom of our national shoe, a sad political skid-mark left over from McCain's flatulence in 2008. Still in stubborn denial that her curtain-call ended years ago, Bailin’ keeps primping endlessly for any recognition whatsoever, even as her circle of sycophants draws smaller and more savage, impotent with inbred anger.
     Palin’s vanity and hypocrisy knows no bounds when, with a straight face, she can accuse reporters of “… basically prostituting themselves for a job, for an interview …” after debasing herself in slavish servitude to the likes of Roger Ailes, President of Fox News Channel. When your own boss publicly stated that he had hired you "... because she was hot and got ratings,” and you continue to wallow underneath him for his TV-dinner scraps, you've lost your self-righteous claims of ethical purity. 
     All this still from someone who mindlessly parrots the phrase “mainstream media” as an empty pejorative... while working for the second-largest media conglomerate on the planet. Just like the rest of the Tea-Partiers who simultaneously run for elected office while insulting both prospective co-workers and constituents alike, eventually - like with this latest offense - folks will simply ignore you, and ultimately forget about these indignant little tantrums on the tundra.
“I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name," Palin said. - On Sen. Kerry's 2012 DNC speech
"You forgot something honey"
