Will Sarah Palin Quit Shooting Her Mouth Off?

By Adele

The rootin’ tootin’ rhetoric of Sarah Palin and her ilk finally took — and sent a bullet through Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ head.

Palin’s cheerleaders, Glenn Beck and Rush LimpPaw, quickly claimed it coincidence that Palin had Giffords’ district in crosshairs on the map she posted on Facebook, and that she specifically named Giffords and other Congress members as deserving to be taken out in the midterms for their healthcare reform support.

Palin’s map post ended with…

“We’ll aim for these races and many others. This is just the first salvo in a fight to elect people across the nation who will bring common sense to Washington.”

Nope, absolutely no firearms lingo there.

Palin’s amnesiatic aide, Rebecca Mansour, is now swearing the graphics weren’t crosshairs. So why weren’t they DOTS?

And last March 23, Palin wasn’t thinking guns when she tweeted, “Commonsense Conservatives & lovers of America: ‘Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!’”

They’ve found no link yet between Tucson assassin Jared Loughner and Palin, but neither can Palin claim her macho talk has done anything to make wackos like him consider laying down their arms.

As always, Palin’s defensive and belligerent. Maybe she should just pick dates and announce when it’s officially open season on other politicians she’d like to see rubbed out.

You can betcha what she won’t do is man up and admit her gun metaphors just blew up — wounding 14 people and killing 6.

Palin e-mailed Glenn Beck that she “hates violence.” That’s why she swaggers through her reality show, Alaska, with guns, just itching to murder something for entertainment.

Or why she can gleefully club a large halibut to death to keep it from “bruising itself.”

Poor, misunderstood Sarah. How could anybody think she’s pro-killing?

If Palin had any sense, she’d realize that unofficially leading Americans who barely cling to the fringes of reason isn’t such a good idea. If she refuses to dial back the bile after the senseless bloodshed in Tucson, we can only hope more people wake up and stop listening.

    You’ll probably get clobbered for this post. It’s not PC to say that the Left and the Right aren’t equally guilty of bashing the other side. “Obama is Hitler” apparently equals “I hope George Bush doesn’t win a second term” and “Throw bricks through the windows of Democrats running for Congress” is supposed to be on par with “George W. Bush should be tried as a war criminal.” (Let’s face it, there is some pretty compelling evidence for that war criminal accusation given that Bush has crowed about his use of torture.)

    Jon Stewart was thrashed soundly for being “too soft” at his Rally to Restore Sanity (which I attended) — as if “inciting” people to turn down the rhetoric was a stupid idea. At the event, he even tried to appeal to the fringes on the Right by including the Left in his pleas to tone things down –knowing full well that the Right and the Left might be separate, but they’re NOT equal.

    By the way, Sarah Palin doesn’t need to tone down her rhetoric or apologize. She just needs to stay in Alaska and shut up! She has NOTHING of value to say to anyone… period. (Oh, does that sound like RIGHT bashing? Sorry, but again, there is EVIDENCE. The woman doesn’t know the difference between North and South Korea and she wants to be president in two years, for Pete’s sake.)

    Noel, I assume you meant to say that your mom went to Jon Stewart’s rally. You would have been trampled in that mob.

    If any neocons want to clobber me, I say, “Bring it on!” I’ve got my claws honed and I know how to use them. (Just ask Karen. I engaged in some “pushy, pushy” while sitting on her lap the other night and her leg is covered with puncture wounds. You should have heard her screaming in pain. It was so cute!)

    Yes, it’s true that both sides bash, but Dems don’t usually do it with a loaded gun in their hand.

    Unfortunately, as a pragmatist, I don’t expect Palin to go away any time soon (although they’re saying there won’t be a season 2 of her reality show). But the silver lining of this shooting in Tucson may be that her “don’t retreat — RELOAD” mantra starts falling flat. Basically, she’s been trying to incite the Tea Party to commit domestic terrorism, and somebody finally followed through. Beck and LimpPaw may dismiss it as a one-off because they know the chances of some tree-hugging Democrat pumping them full of lead is nil, odious and dishonest as they are.

    Yet they will still insist that every psycho in the country deserves to have an arsenal and be allowed to use it. They NEVER learn.

    I’m betting the reason there won’t be a season 2 of her show is coz Sarah can’t commit. She couldn’t finish a single term as governor, why should she stick around and try and make a tv show work??

  4. catsworking says:

    Gonzo’s mom, good point. Also, since she’s already tried to kill everything found in nature up there, and snow, sky, ice, and mountains and hold people’s attention for only so long, the only place the show would have to go in a second season is IN, which means into Palin’s personal business. That’s the last thing she wants, and the last thing anybody needs to see. Besides, there was already a hit series that covered the topic in depth. It was called The Beverly Hillbillies.

    Here is what I think of that insipid right wing fanatic and her widget named brood:

    Ok, it looks like I wrote nothing but the white hot flames of indignation actually burned up my prose as I typed.

    I can sum it up fairly accurately though, Sara Palin is an ahole. Her Tea Party slaves are aholes and Messrs. Beck & Limbaugh….aholes.

    Adele, there’s a really funny video circulation of Palin breathing; someone took all the text out of her Facebook professionally produced word salad, and we just get to see her breathing and doing that lip-purse. I tried to send it to you, but it was embedded in something else.

    Sarah’s had your tail in a bunch (and rightly so) since she burst on to the political scene. Your comparing her brood to The Beverly Hillbillies is excellent — and Morgan, “widget named brood,” LMFAO!

    Adele, I think if Palin has another baby (and she could, since she seems to pop them out like a Pez dispenser), and it’s a girl, I’ve already thought of the perfect name…

    Trinket

    And if it’s a boy…

    Trunk
