“No disrespect meant”

… said Sarah Palin, when asked why she took a black Sharpie to the name “McCain” on her visor. Here she is kickin’ it in Hawaii earlier this week:

HAHAHAHA!  Why didn’t she just use duct tape — it couldn’t look any worse.  Or better yet, maybe invest in another visor ($5.99 at every kiosk on the beach).

This chick is so odd sometimes, I’m actually starting to like her just for her weirdness.

UPDATE: Here’s a picture taken a couple of months ago that shows the bumper of NY-23 teabagger candidate Doug Hoffman’s car — a “McCain/Palin” bumpersticker with the “McCain” part torn off:

This is definitely a dog-whistle to the teabaggers, and so too is Palin’s hat.  It’s so primitive it almost gives me the creeps.

    Why not buy another visor? Because then we wouldn’t be talking about her today.

    Bleatmop – I’m afraid you’re right 😉

    If visors were outrageously expensive and hard to get, I can see wanting to recycle the wretched thing, although I think I would have found a better way to make it more anonymous than to take a Sharpie to it. However, they’re $5.99, not $599.00, and probably available within spitting distance at any given location on that beach.

    It was just Sawah doing what she does best: raising some cheap buzz.

    JJ – Exactly. Though I do agree with you that I am starting to like her when she’s doing cornball things like this. I really think she should just do the Sarah Palin Variety Hour on TV. It would be like Stephen Colbert, only without the intentional satire.

    Sarah Palin makes my scalp itch.

  5. 6 toasterhands Friday, December 18, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    She’s looking rather old now.

  6. 7 toujoursdan Friday, December 18, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    BTW, she quit her vacation and went home. The press attention was too much.

    What a wussy. Can anyone imagine a President who quits when the press gets a little intense?

  7. 8 Torontonian Friday, December 18, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    The poor woman quits everything she starts.

    Amazing she carried her children to full term.

    I’d hate to see how half-done her vacuuming and
    dusting and laundry and dishes are! Not a clean
    corner in the place, I bet!

    She’s a quitter, whiner and a conservative woman.

    Boy, she fits into that niche like nobody else.

    FF – 😆 😆 😆

    Sarah Palin makes my scalp itch.

    I suppose that’s better than the usual jock itch she inspires in the male wingnut.

  10. 11 JJ Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    toasterhands – Well, she isn’t exactly young — she’s 45, IIRC. But for that age she looks spectacular, I think — better than the majority of 35 yr olds. Stroll around a Walmart sometime and you’ll see what I mean.

  11. 12 JJ Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    toujoursdan – QUITBULL!

  12. 13 JJ Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    Torontonian

    She’s a quitter, whiner and a conservative woman.

    I wonder, though. If she hadn’t been picked for the McCain ticket, I wonder if she would still be Governor of Alaska and just going on with that. I think a lot of the quitting stuff is because suddenly there were so many opportunities available to her, and she didn’t want to wait.

    But you’re right, she’s the one who’s keeping herself in the limelight, she can’t whine about the downside of it.

  13. 14 Bruce Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    She quits any time she feels even the slightest heat and it’s not fun anymore.

  14. 15 JJ Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Bruce – Yeah, for some people that’s when the fun stops, when the heat is on. Others thrive under those conditions, but not Palin, apparently.

    What on earth does she think it would be like to be president? If you run for VP, you’re basically running for stand-in president. And who knows, she may even run for president yet (fingers crossed).

  15. 16 Bruce Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    This is what makes her the uber conservative, a total inability to see things through, no thoughts of consequences whatsoever.

  16. 17 Torontonian Friday, December 18, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    Bruce,

    Your comment about no thoughts to the consequences was
    beautifully borne out during the Mike Harris/Ernie Eves
    years here in Ontario.

    Nearly every legislation was in REACTION to a situation.
    School violence and street begging spring to mind and
    they were reactive and proscriptive rather than
    prescriptive.

    All these reactive legislations made the situation
    so impossible and brought so many problems home to
    roost with the premier that he resigned.

    Mike Harris–in my view, for what it’s worth–
    was driven from office a haunted man.
    ——
    Look at what happened in the US–the Patriot Act.
    Didn’t that open up a whole can of worms and in the
    name of patriotism undermine civil and constitutional
    rights?

    Harris/Eves did the same here.

    Harris/Eves cabinet meetings couldn’t see things through
    when all the guys were more anxious to get to George’s for
    steaks and cigars!

    Sorry situation with the conservatives, isn’t it?

  17. 18 Bruce Friday, December 18, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Torontonian, Remember after budget cuts and downloading when all the people were deemed competent to look after themselves and kicked out on the street? There was a flood of them on the streets and we haven’t been able to deal with it since.

    This failure to see beyond ideas that might seem good at the time are the same folly that most failed dictators with grandiose dreams have tried.

    Conservatism can really be described as visionary without any regard to consequences. For them, the beauty of democracy is someone else will be voted in to clean up the mess.

    Heh. Funny you should mention that. During the election last year, my dad and I were driving around putting up yard signs for our state representative (who’s a nice guy, BTW – he worked on the late Ann Richards’ 1990 campaign for governor). At one of our stops, we notice that one of the neighboring houses had a McCain/Palin yard sign, only the top half was shorn cleanly away! We suspected that the owners were Palinistas who were upset that she wasn’t the top of the ticket…

    Stroll around a Walmart sometime and you’ll see what I mean.

    Oh, Sweet Zombie Jesus, you guys have Wally World up there?!

  20. 21 Reality Bites Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    Walmart operates 14 countries aside from the United States.

  21. 22 JJ Monday, December 21, 2009 at 10:25 am

    😆 Of course we have Wally World! And it’s just like yours (give or take a few pounds of cellulite).

  22. 23 JJ Monday, December 21, 2009 at 10:31 am

    Bruce – Perfect example of ideas that sound good in the short term but are disastrous in the long run. Hate to use the word “typical” but it really is.


Wait. What?
