Thank You Sarah, for Saving Us from Another Year and a Half

by jhwygirl

…and for that ever-so-brief reprise from Michael Jackson.

Plenty’s been written out there – hell, some people are even wondering why she did it. Me? I merely grateful and hope it is a harbinger of her truly floating down that stream like a dead fish.

NYTimes opinion section had two great pieces (at least) since her bizarre press conference, both of which were quite entertaining. I wanted to share.

Gail Collins’ Sarah’s Straight Talk included a few gems, including this one:

Smiling manically, she looked like a parody of the woman who knocked the Republicans dead at their convention. She babbled about her parents’ refrigerator magnet, which apparently had a lot of wise advice. And she recalled her visit with the troops in Kosovo, whose dedication and determination inspired her to … resign.

Then there was Maureen Dowd’s Now, Sarah’s Folly, who kicks it off with this gem:

Sarah Palin showed on Friday that in one respect at least, she is qualified to be president.

Caribou Barbie is one nutty puppy.

Usually we don’t find that exquisite battiness in our leaders until they’ve been battered by sordid scandals like Watergate (Nixon), gnawing problems like Vietnam (L.B.J.), or scary threats like biological terrorism (Cheney).

Good funny reads for your Sunday evening enjoyment. Anyone got more that shouldn’t be missed? Please, add them in the comments. I’m in need of some funnies.

On another note – my prediction is that there is another scandal brewing in Wasilla – which is probably why she is probably why she is looking forward to heading out to sea.

  1. I can only hope there’s a scandal brewing…I already made the popcorn after all!

    Say what you will. Sarah is hot. She knows it. And people (progressives included) pay attention to her. She is going to make a lot more money being a media darling and attention whore than she would ever make in public office. So keep writing about her. She is laughing all the way to the bank.

    • Hot? What is this, high school?

      I pay attention to her – in the just-saw-a-trainwreck kinda way.

      Didn’t she say something about being over $500,000 in debt? Some bank.

        Yes J Girl this is high school. Where everyone pays attention to the most narcissistic person imaginable. Having flashbacks to the 80s already. Making me feel young again.

    Read the Vanity Fair article.

    i did some serious cringing watching her bizarre speech (that breathless delivery, awkward basketball analogy, etc.) because a sarah palin scandal on top of a pop icon death will ensure our worthless media remains fixated on the king of pop and caribou barbie instead of more important issues, like health care reform and the increasing tension in honduras (chavez has put his troops on alert. there’s already been one death in clashes between protestors and police at the airport today where zelaya was suppose to land. why is this not getting the attention iran’s twitter revolution received? hmmm…)

    republicans are a circus show right now, and their collective idiocy is a major distraction. tea bagging, mark sanford, cheney’s torture tour, and egging on unhinged domestic terrorists spring to mind, but the list is long.

    it makes it hard to realize we’re still getting screwed from center/right politicians when the extreme right is acting so f-ing insane. who knows what might happen next, but in my dreams it ends with the internment of karl rove at gitmo :)

    Some people are like slinkys. Not good for anything but it is fun to watch them fall down.
