Even by Sarah Palin’s already low standards, this speech is extraordinarily incoherent and scattered. I’ve seen a lot of her speeches (do not pity me, it is my job), and I can’t remember a more garbled, deeply weird performance from Caribou Barbie.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, Caribou Barbie is about to take the stage at the Iowa Freedom Freakout. Let’s give her a warm welcome, shall we?
Tonight’s Sarah Palin moment features Caribou Barbie obviously approving of a wingnut sign that puts target signs in the Os of Michael Moore’s name.
I’m not Moore’s biggest fan, but hey — shouldn’t Sarah be careful about stuff like this with her blood-stained history of using target signs for political incitement?
Sarah Palin has a rather spectacular word salad for us today at Facebook, ranting at one of the right’s perennial targets, PETA, after they criticized her for posting a photo of her son standing on the family dog to wash dishes. In a standard what-about deflection maneuver, she brings up, yes, the hackneyed right wing joke known as OBAMA ATE DOG because the story involves dogs. Never fails to make ‘em chortle and guffaw.
Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.
Hey, by the way, remember your “Woman of the Year”, Ellen DeGeneres? Did you get all wee-wee’d up when she posted this sweet picture? conservatives4palin.com Hypocritical, much?
Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?
Aren’t you the double-standard radicals always opposing Alaska’s Iditarod - the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces, while some of your pets “thrive” in a concrete jungle where they’re allowed outdoors to breathe and pee maybe once a day?
Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar”.
That last paragraph is a doozy. Like William Burroughs on hillbilly heroin.
Here’s that last paragraph in beat poem format. Imagine it being read poetry club style.
a thing by Sarah
blogging hate from comfy leather office chairs,
wrapped in fashionable leather belts
above your kickin’ new leather pumps
you bought because your celebrity idols
(who sport fur and crocodile purses)
grinned in a tabloid
wearing the exact same Louboutins
exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats
on their way
to some liberal fundraiser shindig
at some sushi bar
that features poor dead smelly roe
(that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish,
and in a Dillingham cannery
I packed those castoff fish eggs for you
while laughing with co-workers
about the suckers
paying absurdly high prices
to party with
the throw away parts of our wild seafood)?
you call those
Sometimes I really love right wing journalism. Where else can you find such amusing self-beclownment on a regular basis, written by people with marginal command of the English language and no fact-checking skills at all? It’s some of the funniest stuff on the web (if you ignore the sheer hatefulness of so much of it).
Today’s example of this fine tradition of idiocy comes through TruthRevolt, Ben Shapiro’s lowest common denominator propaganda site for dolts, where they’re hilariously trying to defend Sarah Palin by attacking (who else?) Ellen Degeneres: When Ellen DeGeneres’s Kid Stood on a Dog, There Was No Liberal Outrage | Truth Revolt.
When Sarah Palin posted a New Year’s photo of her 6-year-old son Trig standing on the family dog to reach the sink with the offering of an inspirational message of turning an obstacle into a stepping stone, social media erupted in vile attacks against Palin for allowing such an “atrocity” to take place.
However, when Ellen Degeneres posted the same photo of her daughter standing on their family’s dog to reach the sink back in July of 2014, no one cared:
TPNN [Tea Party News Network] points out that there were a few comments to Ellen’s talk show Facebook page that expressed disappointment and warned that the dog could become uncomfortable and possibly bite, but no one attacked the entertainer personally, and no one stooped to the level of pedophilia as they did in the instance above with Palin.
And the punch line to this inadvertent joke is … wait for it … Ellen Degeneres has no daughter! Boom! They just assumed the photo she posted at Facebook was of her own daughter. Fact-checking? What is that?
If you click the link to the “Tea Party News Network” (bwa haha!) you’ll see that they’re the numbskulls who originated this bone-headed error. TruthRevolt’s Trey Sanchez just parroted it like a good little wingnut propaganda spreader.
Look out, the truth is revolting! Clicking the link above now leads to this:
Sarah Palin’s latest word salad is even more incoherent and ranty than usual — a monumental wall of authentic wingnut gibberish. That nasty Obama guy is oppressing her again by suggesting women should have access to cheaper, better day care.
(Do I even have to tell you that the Obama quote that launched her into this confused tirade is completely out of context and deceptive?)
Obama Declares Stay-at-Home Moms Aren’t Worth a Hill of Beans; Says It’s a Choice ‘We Don’t Want Americans to Make’
Well that just takes the cake. Sure, Obama’s latest shot across the bow in his own “War on Women” is easily deflected by women like my friends and me testifying to the most precious, irreplaceable seasons of our lives when we were BLESSED to be “stay-at-home moms” (though I don’t remember any of us actually “staying home” in those busiest times of our children’s lives), but Friday’s jab deserves something right back nonetheless. On behalf of former and current stay-at-homers, including my girlfriends who still get together to bake cookies for the bake sale (see photos in my kitchen above), and volunteer to coach kids ball teams, and man the church’s food bank, and entertain latchkey kids, and all that other obnoxiously “housewifey” stuff, the President needs to be spanked.
Barack, do you not know any stay-at-home moms? Are you and Michelle so disconnected from the real world that you think women will accept your intolerant view that we should not have a choice in how we wish to live our lives? You have a way of arrogantly demanding that we fall in line with your sad opinion of today’s American woman. It seems you’d shackle us by your snobbish shunning of one traditional lifestyle choice while taking advantage of power to manifest your liberal view by manipulating public opinion and resources to diminish moms who put career on hold to raise a family. You are really messed up. And you’re so 1960’s.
Yes, the 60’s are calling and they want their ardent yet narrow sexist confines back. See, you just set the women’s movement back a few decades, and I think it’s hilarious because for being the smartest man in the room, you ain’t too smart.
Whoa, Nellie! Caribou Barbie’s on a tear! And it continues in this vein of rich idiocy for five more interminable paragraphs.
Thanks, John McCain.
Radar Online has posted the unedited audio of police interviewing people after the Sarah Palin family’s drunken brawl last September at a party in Anchorage, and it’s a trash-fest if there ever was one. Warning: Bristol and Willow Palin drop plenty of F-bombs and other initial-bombs too. Tell the kids to leave the room before you listen.
OK folks, here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the official police report on that massive drunken brawl involving the entire Palin clan at a party in Anchorage last September — and it’s as trashy and lurid as a Jerry Springer episode.

The highlight of today’s crazy ranting at the Values Voter Summit: Sarah Palin, as part of her usual incoherent word salad, getting the address of the White House wrong. A classic in the annals of Palinisms.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again; the time when religious fanatics, creationists, fundamentalists, homophobic bigots and social conservatives with raging persecution complexes gather to share their psychoses at the right wing loonfest known as the Values Voter Summit.
Here’s a live feed from this insane event. As I write this, Kelly Shackelford is warning the audience that the government is turning into a totalitarian dictatorship that plans to strip them of religious freedom. It’s utterly delusional.
