Sarah Palin and ‘Behemoth the Dinosaur’

June 10, 2011

From the giant stash of Governor Palin emails:

On Sept. 15, 2008, Palin communications director Bill McAllister sent the governor a list of queries he’d been fielding from reporters covering the campaign. Though the top priority was Palin’s use of personal emails for public business, one of the questions he’d received apparently dealt with Palin’s beliefs regarding evolution and creationism: “Is it your belief that dinosaurs and humans co-existed at one time?”

McAllister told the governor, “I said I have never spoken to you about this,” but then he added, parenthetically, “There is an interesting reference to ‘Behemoth’ in the Old Testament.”

In response, Palin wrote, “Arghhhh! I am so sorry that the office is swamped like this! Dinosaurs even?!”

Cue the damned song:

I knew that she was chief in the ways of god.

GOP Circus Roundup: Polls and Palin/Bachmann escalation

June 8, 2011

As everyone on earth expected, Sarah Palin’s camp fired back at Michele Bachmann today in response to Ed Rollins dissing Palin. From her PAC’s chief of staff:

“Beltway political strategist Ed Rollins has a long, long track record of taking high profile jobs and promptly sticking his foot in his mouth. To no one’s surprise he has done it again, while also fueling a contrived narrative about the presidential race by the mainstream media. One would expect that his woodshed moment is coming and that a retraction will be issued soon.”

Fight or flight, Ed?


“As far as we’re concerned, it’s not” an ongoing fight, he insisted. “This was my one comment, which I shouldn’t have made, at the end of the day this has nothing to do with Michele, Michele’s campaign, or any of the rest of it. This was my transition from being an analyst to a political strategist, and I missed a step.”

Though he did leave this parting shot, the answer to which is quite obvious:

Of Team Palin’s call for a retraction, he said, “What’s the retraction? I say she’s serious?”

Heh. Doubt we’ve heard the last from this one, even though I still doubt Palin is running.

But what if she did? While most polls show Romney out in front with Palin in second (like this Q poll released this morning), check out these national numbers from Reuters:

Palin- 22%
Romney- 20%
Cain- 7%
Paul- 7%

And the head-to-head numbers with Obama are just as zesty with Obama leading Romney by 13, Palin by 23 and Pawlenty by 19.

To be continued for 12 months…

There can be only one (Palin vs. Bachmann)

We have some more splendid news from the Greatest Show on Earth (2012 GOP primary). Not only is Michele Bachmann almost 100% in, she’s hired a real pro, Ed Rollins, who ran Mike Huckabee’s almost victorious 2008 race. And as I’ve said before, if Palin doesn’t run, she will be my front runner for Iowa.

Which makes this quote from Ed Rollins today, well:

“Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years,” Rollins told Brian Kilmeade on his radio show, Kilmeade and Friends. “She got the Vice Presidential thing handed to her, she didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance, she gave up her governorship.”

He suggested that the contrast would favor Bachmann.

“Michele Bachmann and others [have] worked hard, she has been a leader of the Tea Party which is a very important element here, she has been an attorney, she has done important things with family values.”

“She is probably the best communicator [in the GOP field] now that Mike Huckabee’s not in there,” he said.

Oh, you just know that Sarah Palin is going to come back swinging, because that’s all she knows how to do. Which means that we can now sit back and watch an epic battle of Crazy vs. Crazy, Tea vs. Tea, Real Amurka vs. Real Amurka.

Start popping.

Also, PPP polled Round III of “The Show”, finding that Romney is actually leading in South Carolina:

Romney- 27%
Palin- 18%
Cain- 12%
Gingrich- 12%
Bachmann- 9%
Paul- 7%
Pawlenty- 4%
Huntsman- 2%

Yikes, that isn’t good news. Especially with the new WaPo poll showing Romney and Obama in a dead heat. But never fear, the GOP base will eat him alive over the next 7 months.

In other bad news, HermanCainia hurt his GOP street cred, saying that he would actually hire a qualified gay person in his cabinet. However, he did somewhat save himself by adding this qualifier:

So yep, I don’t have a problem with appointing an openly gay person. Because they’re not going to try to put sharia law in our laws.

Amen. This is the kind of common sense thinking that has HermanCainia sweeping the nation

In the meantime, Palin’s response in 10… 9… 8…

Tea Party Doing Better Job of Attacking Mitch McConnell than Democrats

June 6, 2011

Did you know Mitch McConnell had his balls sliced off? Neither did we, but Andrew Breitbart has the goods!

Sarah Palin’s new documentary, The Undefeated, isn’t just taking on BHO and his terrorist pals, it’s also attacking John Boner and our own Dear Leader:

One of the most politically stunning moments of the film targets House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) during a segment that criticizes the GOP establishment.

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin, who was interviewed for the documentary, claims that the party establishment views her with suspicion and is unwilling to defend her against liberal attacks.

As Levin rails against the party establishment, images of Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell are flashed on-screen.

Conservative media figure Andrew Breitbart also lashes out at the Republican elite for failing to defend Palin.

“Men no longer have a sense of chivalry,” he says. They are “eunuchs who have run as men but who aren’t men.”

Meanwhile, Kentucky Dems can’t figure out how to just say Sen. McConnell is trying to kill Medicare.

And while the national Dems are trying to do the work the KDP won’t do in their new ad, a new Rasmussen poll suggests few people even know who Mitch is (or that he’s not a man):

Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, remains the least-known top congressional leader, with 40 percent who express no opinion of him. McConnell’s favorables add up to 27 percet, including just 5 percent with a very favorable view of him. Thirty-three percent (33%) share an unfavorable assessment of the Kentucky Republican, with 15 percent very unfavorable.

Now, granted, that’s a Rasmussen poll (and it shows that 1% more people like Nancy Pelosi than like Mitch), but Mitch McConnell’s a pretty gorgeous face for the Republican Party nationwide and even if the KDP can’t get it together to do a single thing to defeat him, here’s hoping the national Party might adopt the same tactics toward Mitch as the GOP has toward Nancy and turn him into a household hated name to help win races elsewhere.

Mitch may be a castrated man, but he’s still good for something. Even if the KDP can’t figure it out.

Sarah Palin is Magic (UPDATE)

It’s gone from darkly humorous to painful. Yes, Sarah Palin is doubling down on her idiotic Paul Revere history lesson, because she is never wrong.

John McCain’s Greatest Legacy isn’t going to run for president, but no, she’s never going away. Ever.

(though Howard Dean’s Jedi Mind Trick is commendable)

UPDATE: FYI, the “gotcha question” asked by the liberal media that prompted her original answer was “what have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit”.

The collectivist media will stop at nothing to destroy her, I say.

This one is especially awesome and freedomy. Here she is giving a history lesson on Paul Revere:

Republican Party, F**k Yeah!

PPP polls GOP nationally, shows wide open race

Here’s the damage:

Mitt Romney- 16%
Sarah Palin- 16%
Tim Pawlenty- 13%
Herman Cain- 12%
MIchele Bachmann- 9%
Newt Gingrich- 9%
Ron Paul- 9%
Jon Huntsman- 4%

Mittens just officially announced his campaign in New Hampshire today, but look who showed up in his hometown just beforehand to give him a helping hand:

That was sweet. But remember, Romneycare and Obamacare are not equals. Romneycare is actually better, as it covers abortion services for poor people. So there’s that to remember, primary voters.

Stand with Mittens!

The Greatest Show on Earth (Iowa) is revving its engine

PPP just released its Iowa poll for the GOP presidential primary, and it’s looking like a free-for-all:

Romney- 21
Palin- 15
Cain- 15
Gingrich- 12
Bachmann- 11
Pawlenty- 10
Paul- 8
Huntsman- 0

A little surprising to see Obamacare 1.0 in the lead, and I doubt that will last.

Rick Santorum was not included in the poll, but it looks like he’ll get in the mix soon.

If Palin enters the race, she’ll cut into Bachmann’s support, but I still think that is somewhat doubtful. If Palin doesn’t, I still think that Bachmann is the favorite, as Iowa caucus goers are… well, eccentric. Plus, her favorablilty spread (53/16) is the best among the candidates polled. And all indications are that Bachmann is in, very soon..

As for Herman Cain Fever, I’m still doubtful, but if he keeps putting out awesome country campaign songs like this, you never know.

And then we get fun stuff like this:

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says he is considering running for president after frustrated conservative activists have pleaded with him to run.

DeMint told The Hill that he has discussed a White House bid with his wife and will pray on the question out of respect for his supporters across the country.

I wonder how long that little Rand Paul/Jim DeMint Honeymoon would last if DeMint started trying to cut into Father Liberty’s Tea Party mojo. Popcorn would be required, especially since DeMint went along with the Patriot Act re-authorization.

Either way, the Greatest Show on Earth is ready to start up, to see who gets the head start on the race to lose to Barack Obama.

Memorial Day Weekend Wrap-up

no comments
May 31, 2011

We unplugged ourselves from the intertubes Friday afternoon, so here’s just a rundown of some stuff that happened on this hot, slow, muggy weekend:

- One-time almost-Vice President of the United States of America spent her weekend riding on the back of a Harley Davidson and a bus with a giant picture of her face on it. Also, fat white people came from all over the state of Pennsylvania to stand out in 95 degree weather for over 6 hours just to catch a glimpse of Real Amurika’s Last Hope, all for not. Sarah Palin is worth it.

- The non-partisan fiscal conservatives of the tea party who aren’t into social conservative culture wars are takin’ their country back!

Ever since Republicans took control of half the country’s statehouses this year, the anti-abortion movement has won one victory after another. At least 64 new anti-abortion laws have passed, with more than 30 of them in April alone. The campaign is the largest in history and also the most creative. Virginia started regulating abortion clinics as if they were hospitals. Utah, Nebraska and several other states have stopped private health insurers from covering abortions, with rare exceptions. South Dakota will soon tell women that before they go to an abortion clinic, they must first visit a crisis pregnancy center whose mission is to talk them out of it.

- John Yarmuth’s campaign page has a petition up for folks to sign and join his email list, demanding that Rep. Patrick McHenry apologize for being a childish prick to Elizabeth Warren.

- The weekly Richie Farmer embarrassment continued Friday, with literal “LOLOLOLOL” emails from the decadent Ag Land.

- Gatewood’s campaign responded with a press release on Friday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend at 5:30 that used the phrase “pimping your ride”:

We are not above stealing a good idea when we see one. Gov. Jerry Brown of California has taken major steps to reduce the fleet of state owned cars. Kentucky would benefit from following his example.

In light of recent reports about the abuse of state vehicles, Gatewood Galbraith and Dea Riley promise to make these changes as soon as their administration takes office.

Eliminate the assignment of Ford Crown Victoria, large SUV’s and other vehicles for the personal use of all elected officials, including the Governor and Lt. Governor, and all agency and department heads.

A fifty percent reduction in the state owned fleet of automobiles.

The conversion of all state vehicles to more energy efficient vehicles.

Elimination of all reserved parking spaces at state owned buildings except for handicap and visitor spaces.

“If you are important enough to have a reserved parking space you should be at work early enough to get the best space in the lot and the state is going to quit pimping the ride you put in that space,” said Gatewood Galbraith.

- Beshear’s campaign never sends us anything or responds to any of our questions, so I don’t have anything from them on Richie.

- Kentuckians testified before the EPA (PDF) in Atlanta on Thursday, advocating for the new rules to limit mercury and arsenic emissions from coal plants, getting on everybody’s back in the process.

A Draft Palin comeback!

Things were looking bleak for Real America, as Sarah Palin’s numbers were dropping and it looked like Our Only Hope would not get in the race.

Then Haley dropped out. Then Trump dropped out. Then Huckabee dropped out. Then Daniels dropped out. Then Newt Gingrich exploded into a bloody pile of flesh on national television.

And then this week we learned that coming to a theater near you this Summer in IOWA is….. Sarah Palin: The Uncompleted Undefeated!

Cannot. Wait.

And today we learn that with Trump and Huckabee out of the race, who vaults up near the top of the Freak Heap in Gallop? Sister Sarah!

Sorry, collectivists. Real Amurika ain’t dead yet.

UPDATE: And she’s got a bus! Rolling Thunder!
