She’s tanned, rested and ready

Sarah Palin, the Cretin Who Would Be Queen, gave her $100,000 speech to the Teabaggers Ball tonight, and if her level of brainless hubris is any indication (“How’s that hopey-changey stuff workin’ out for ya?”), she’s thinkin’ she just might take a run at that Presidentin’ job in 2012.  And why not?  She’s up to it, and here’s the proof.

After the speech, during a 15-minute, scripted Q&A session (her handlers don’t trust her to go ad lib even in this ultra-friendly teabaggy environment), she was caught doing something that looked suspiciously like reading answers off her hand:

Pause at 47 seconds:

Yeah.  She’s reading.  Off her hand.

Then there’s the guy she’d be running against, who recently gave a completely ad-lib almost two-hour Q&A session in the most viciously hostile environment possible, with him against 140 rabid house Republicans, after which he walked away the clear winner.

I can’t wait for the debates!

    One of the dopiest of all the dopey anti-Obama lines “the teleprompter kid” meme. Maybe this will shut them up. No, what am I saying? Nothing will ever shut them up.

    Some speakers use index cards. Some use spiral bound notebooks. Some use teleprompters. Some use 8 by 11 sheets of paper. Everyone reads from notes. Why was is a teleprompter supposed to be worse?

    i think it is high time america was cancelled. the ratings have fallen into the crapper and the only sponsors left are either passively toxic or actively murderous. the shining light on the hill is now a flickering neon sign for guns & liquor. as for the witless palin, hell, why not have a useless jughead like her in the big oval? that way lies comedy. and given what a screaming waste of potential obama has proven to be so far we might as well get a laugh out of the wreckage. my prediction is for the reversal of democratic fortunes come 2012, the repiglickins could run palin and a cabbage and they’ll knock obama out of office and i wouldn’t be at all startled to see the dems fall back into minority positions in both houses of congress. and at the end of the day it really won’t make a lick of difference in their governance, just as obama’s hobbled duck act hasn’t made a substantive difference in american policy domestically or abroad. zombie wall stat!

    balb – Ironically, during her speech to the teabaggers Palin referred to Obama as “the teleprompter guy” (or words to that effect). I guess that makes her “the cheat notes scrawled on hand” guy.

    Given the reality that almost everyone uses some kind of notes or teleprompter for speeches, you’d think these wingnuts were digging a real hole for themselves when they choose to ridicule such things. But they’re capable of living with incredible contradictions, so no, they’ll never shut up about it. Reality is whatever they say it is at any given moment.

    my prediction is for the reversal of democratic fortunes come 2012, the repiglickins could run palin and a cabbage and they’ll knock obama out of office and i wouldn’t be at all startled to see the dems fall back into minority positions in both houses of congress.

    I wouldn’t be so quick to write Obama off after one year, especially a year like 2009. It’s not like he accomplished SFA — a cursory glance at the dow jones over the past 12 months will tell you that.

    For sure he’s been a disappointment to anyone who was expecting universal health care (which he campaigned on) and other things that turned out to be a lot of ponies and rainbows. His biggest problem is trying to reason with unreasonable people, like an opposition that will do anything to undermine him even at the expense of the country. But I don’t buy into the “failed presidency, the black Jimmy Carter” thing at this point, as much as the wingnuts are trying to make it a reality.

    Palin will never be president, but I almost wish she would, if only for the comedy opportunities.

    Spoken like a true fag but, how many hair extensions do you think she has going on there? She’s starting to look like a woolly mammoth.

    i’d be inclined to offer more hope were it not for the determination to not drive an agenda of any sort, let alone anything remotely left of centre or, gawd forbid, liberal. i’ve kept my yap shut for more than a year now but with democratic majorities in both houses and possession of the white house, the vaunted obama machine seems to have run aground. if there ever was a message from this president it sure isn’t getting out. he’s allowed, with the exception of this recent visit to shit-head-quarters to visit the repig caucus, his opponents to control the field. and i certainly don’t get the impression that he is holding the reins. i laughed a sad chuckle when they announced rahm as chief of staff, pretty much a tacit admission that hopes, dreams and change were a frickin’ lie. every president has his agenda quashed to a certain degree but the utter failure to whip his own party is just pathetic. he’s a rolled over, supine washout so far. and the democratic party is as much as delivering power back into the hands of what the hell ever creature the g.o.p. dredges up from the shit swamps. good gawd, they’ve allowed a president whose agenda has consisted of don’t change anything, don’t make waves to be painted as a raving commieislamofascist and what defence has been mounted? zippity.

    this guy should never have been in the running for this office. he doesn’t have the gravitas. he got stuck in front of a party that wanted to pretend toward change and he used his sonorous voice to carry a tide of empty to power. they popped him out front a full eight years too soon for him, for the party and for the nation. and i still suspect that the repiglickins threw the last election. mccain + palin? i mean come on… senile, crazy with anger issues and the psycho from the sticks and they went out and ran a car wreck of a campaign and they still came within a couple of spits of having a shot when you look at the popular vote. now the tidal wave of feces left by the last decade of bush settles around the feet of teh pleasant do-nothing prez. if there’s to be any hope of a shift, this dude better get on his horse, ride into battle and start slaying some dragons but i tell you what. it won’t happen unless and until he hoists rahm’s head on a pike. he needs to kick the living cripes out of the dinos and blue dogs but he doesn’t have it in him and it won’t get done. i contended then and i am convinced now that the progressive left got played. and rest assured if i’m ever wrong about anything i pray that its this ‘cos there’s no shortage of handbaskets out there and we’re marching straight to hell in a hurry.

    Bruce – BWAHA! That’s why I ♥ you 😉

  8. 8 JJ Sunday, February 7, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    psa – Righteous rant. Can’t say there’s much to disagree with.

    I also suspected that the GOP didn’t try very hard to win the last election — they knew what was coming and didn’t want to be the ones to clean it up and govern during the inevitable recession.

    As for the Blue Dogs, that’s the problem with “big tent” parties. We’ve got the same problem in the Liberal Party 😐

    sad but true jj. apologies, didn’t mean to tee off here, i think a little residual stress caught up with me. and i do go on sometimes.

  10. 10 JJ Sunday, February 7, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    psa – No need to apologize, I enjoyed reading it. Besides, if that’s what you feel you should absolutely say it. Sadly, there’s a lot of clear-eyed wisdom in your words. I know you wish it was different, and so do I, but wishing doesn’t make it so.

    Good morrow, all!
    PSA: You’re right on. Like Bill Maher says, “It’s time Obama got in touch with his Inner Asshole and just run over these idiots.”
    Rahm Emanuel called them “fucking retards.” He was being both polite and kind, and he apologized in public for something he said in private. What he should have said is, “I’m sorry I called them retards, they’re not smart enough to qualify for that designation.”
    Does the world not have enough contempt for the US, that the US should select a leader just two IQ points above mildew? Oh. Wait. They already did that. Twice.
    Now we know why the Mayans ended the world in December of 2012.
    They saw her coming – CTZen

    psa, yes. When I heard that Rahm was going to be chief of staff, I said to self, ‘well, that’s that then.’

    Total fucking disappointment. And I voted for the wuss.

    I have dual citizenship. The only two presidential winners I’ve voted for: Clinton and Obama.

    I may sit the next one out. Unless of course $arah is running.
