Bye, Bye, Palin – Good Riddance

By Adele

When the begging wasn’t immediately redirected to her after Chris Christie declined again to run for president, Sarah Palin sidestepped embarrassment by piggy-backing onto Christie with her own “withdrawal” from the race.

In some twisted way, I bet she thinks it sets her and Christie up as the inevitable, unbeatable Palin-Christie GOP ticket in 2016.

Palin’s been milking her 16th minute of fame for too long, and this should finish her off. There’s little she can do to hold the public’s interest over the next 4 years that she hasn’t already tried.

She starred in a reality show that tanked. She pseudo-“wrote” 2 books that revealed there’s nothing but lint between her ears. She doesn’t do interviews, so talk shows are out.

Even her gig as a Fox News talking head is iffy. Fox’s chief, Roger Ailes, just told the Associated Press he hired Palin only because she was “hot,” and now that he’s making a “course correction” to steer his neocon propaganda machine network toward the middle ground, Palin’s incendiary hunter-speak about political foes being “targets” in her “crosshairs” won’t play.

So where does that leave Palin?

She might follow Bristol onto Dancing with the Stars if they can guarantee she’ll win it. She could appear on Celebrity Apprentice if Trump can be sweet-talked into rigging it so she wins. She could pose as Playmate of the Month because everyone’s dying to see how a woman with a litter of 5 looks naked.

Palin’s career trajectory is definitely headed for “Whatever Became of…?” and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

As the 2012 election heats up, we’ll undoubtedly see Palin making her last stand, popping up behind candidates’ shoulders at photo ops like some Alaskan Zelig as she desperately tries to cast herself as a kingmaker.

But she’ll finally have to set the course for her stupid bus back to Wasilla, where she can live out her days on the millions she bilked out of her gullible supporters.

    Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. ~Author Unknown?

    Well said, and good riddance indeed!

    Hey, there, Mauigirl! Good to see you!

    With the fading of Palin and Bachmann, it would seem that people are coming to their senses at least a little bit. I was just reading that HIllary Clinton’s approval number is about 64%, which makes her the most beloved politician in America at the moment.

    There was a time I didn’t like Hillary, but when you compare her education, profession (even if it was scumbag lawyer — you have to be very smart to be good at that), and years in Washington, she stands head and shoulders above those other 2 nitwits.

    So I am listening to NPR this morning which featured a brief interview from one of Pailn’s midwest campaign organizers lamenting the loss of the “best” candidate for the office of President. This guy was an attorney…really degrades the value of a law degree and the level of intelligence and wisdom required to earn a JD…IMHO

  5. catsworking says:

    Britta, you said a mouthful.

    Since McCain inflicted Palin on the lower 48, we’ve seen time after time after time how she answers perfectly straightforward, fact-based questions with a semi-coherent spewing of empty patriotic blather that doesn’t answer the question and doesn’t mean anything if you stop and actually think about it. That a segment of the population has been duped into thinking that this qualifies her in any way to lead the country just proves that her supporters are as intellectually deficient (or just too lazy to think) as she is.

    Hallelujah! There is a God.

  7. Britta says:

    Just have to say, she is truly a cretinous, disconnected talking head. For those who recall MTV early days, Max Headroom.this time around, .a big female face in a box spewing garbage. UGH

    Palin’s “withdrawal” has been the only bright spot in an otherwise dismal scene, and Adele, I’m so glad you got to write about it. I just had a horrible thought that she might try to do a calendar for 2012 — not to worry, I’ll be buying Cats Working’s calendar, but some if the months could be pretty interesting — Sarah butchering a moose, the family picture at Christmas, Sarah flyfishing in waders and little else.

    BTW, I saw on Twitter that people who objected to Christie’s running because of his weight were referred to as “birthers.” Good luck with your Occupy the Couch action!

    Palin’s recent last-minute bid for one-time financial gifts to help her decide whether or not to run probably still won’t convince her supporters that she was using them fill the gas tank of her ridiculous tour bus. Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure it required more gas than most because it carried the weight of an entire nation’s hopes and dreams inside its laughable Maco-painted exterior. If the old adage about most stupid people being conservatives was ever in doubt, the nation’s fascination with this idiot of a woman and a few others is proof positive that it’s true! So let’s talk about opportunist and amnesia-sufferer Herman Cain…who attended Atlanta’s Morehouse College during the Civil Rights era but claims this GREAT country made him the man he is today. Talk about cozying up to a lynch mob to buy a white vote!!! Then there’s my favorite whipping boy and VA 7th house representative, Eric Cantor. This moron can’t think of ANY reason why real Americans would peacefully assemble for change on Wall Street? They’re UN-AMERICAN in Cantor’s world. If they get tri-corner hats, do you think Cantor will see the irony? I seriously doubt it. LET THE GAMES BEGIN! I just hope Obama doesn’t continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory–over and over again as he has been for the past three years. I say: 65% Hillary for President! (I admit it. I was wrong. I should’ve supported Hillary in 2008. Can we have a “do-over?”)

    Adele,my idea exactly! Sarah Palin should do a firearm/lingerie calendar featuring girl on girl shots with other Tea party whack jobs like Michelle Bachmann and what’s-her-name,,the witch coven crazy from Delaware

    ZM

    Adele, Cole and Max, I hope you remembered Karen’s birthday with some lavish gift. Not leaving the house is no excuse; you can always shop online.

  12. catsworking says:

    This morning’s paper reported that Palin was in — UGH! — VIRGINIA — the other day. I think she was giving a speech at Jerry Falwell’s “university” to a bunch of Christian Conservative women. And what was her message? It’s time to RELOAD!!

    Dumb bitch still can’t doesn’t get the point that gun metaphors are as tasteless as if she’d called her audience a bunch of See-You-Next-Tuesdays.

    Just knowing Palin was within a few hundred miles of me spouting ignorant garbage, I feel like I need a shower — and I HATE water!!!

  13. catsworking says:

    Adele, you are SO right. We DID shop online, but Karen’s gift hasn’t arrived yet. Any day now. (We got her the DVDs of Seasons 4 and 5 of Mister Ed.)

  14. kittiequeen says:

    Adele– You came up with better “career options” for Palin, than, apparently, the Palins and / or their ” professional handlers ” ever have. Please— keep up the great work!!! Your fan Kittiequeen.

  15. catsworking says:

    kittiequeen, Palin’s never been the brightest bulb in the chandelier. When she has some free time and starts Googling herself, maybe she’ll find my post and be inspired. I do see DWTS in her future.
