The Last Two Things I Hope I Ever Have to Say about Sarah Palin

1.  Republicans, if you ran a vice-presidential candidate who you knew did not know which countries participated in NAFTA, you truly did not put the needs of your country first.  Shame on you.

2.  Media, agreeing to keep off the record until after the election that Sarah Palin did not know that Africa was not a country is some deep bullshit.  That is exactly the kind of information Americans needed in order to make an informed decision and your agreeing to keep it from public knowledge until after the election shows that you are failures at your job.

  1. Reportedly she bounced up to McCain’s campaign director minutes after the announcement of defeat with her own speech in hand, insisting that she be given a slot to speak on national TV to launch campaign 2012.

    I just don’t know what to say about that. Sure, she has appeal — and deep appeal — to a narrow spectrum of rabid base voters. She has zero appeal to the rest of us, demonstrably damaged the credibility of the ticket, and pulled remarkably poor numbers for the independents and swings that hold the key (for the moment) of getting the GOP into national office. That she can’t see that she’s not in a position at the moment to go national (without some serious reinvention) indicates more about the delusions of ambition than is becoming for someone in her position.

  2. If #2 is true, I’m really, really pissed. They could blab on about the cost of her wardrobe, speculate about the paternity of her kids and make a big deal of the fact that she can field dress a moose, but they agreed to keep it secret that she thought a whole continent wasn’t a country?

  3. can I just say….

    I will forgive myself easier now for every lamebrained in denial completely lost moment I will ever have…just because of bridgett’s comment above

    “Reportedly she bounced up to McCain’s campaign director minutes after the announcement of defeat with her own speech in hand, insisting that she be given a slot to speak on national TV to launch campaign 2012.”

    This person must be the most non self-aware individual presently breathing.
