Palin Looks to God for Advice on 2012

posted by on November 11 at 13:03 PM

Palin says she’s looking for God to show her an “open door” to “plow through,” possibly in 2012.

Could we fabricate some sort of “open door” sign for her to run in 2012, thusly ensuring another democratic victory? The real trick would be getting the GOP to nominate her.

Wow, I've never seen anyone break Slog this horribly.

Her eye flutter at 0:08 is so much more ditzy and hilarious than comedy could every be. The "unchained" Palin is even more entertaining than in-the-pen Palin.

"She's been ear tagged and released to the wild".

she spews nonsense like a george w, only sexily!

I said it already on Slog: Let's work to get her nominated!!!! We can register as Republicans and help nominate Sarah Palin!! Hell, I would even give money to see her get nominated just to watch Obama trash her during the campaign!! PLEASE!!! Let's nominate Palin for President in 2012!!!!

She fell for a radio dj from Canada who claimed to be Sarkozy. Anyone with really booming voice want to give her a call? "God" could have to do all sorts of crazy stuff between now and 2012 to guarantee she will be the lightning rod for all the religious wackos in the country.

To Sarah Palin, God is a personal assistant.

I like how she lists her country 3rd after her family and home state. Alaska, please secede.

Maybe she could plow through a worm hole into another universe? that is more attuned to her bizarre persona?

She's a premature plower.

I think God just showed her an open door. It leads back to Alaska, where she can fulfill her true destiny as a footnote on an election that will be taught to kids in History class for the lifetime of the Republic. Congratulations, Sarah Palin, you're an asterisk!

she's as viable as any other GOP hopeful in 2012. meaning it's a fools' errand: she'll get steamrolled.

Here's an example of how she totally distorts thing:

Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?

Palin: I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.

Couric: What, specifically?



But you didn't think the interview was unfair. I mean, the questions were fairly straightforward, weren't they?


Sure. Yeah. But, you know, questions about, well, you know, "What do you read up there in Alaska?" To me that was a little bit annoying. Because I'm like, what do you mean, what do I read in Alaska? I read the same things that you guys read in New York.
And there in LA and in Washington state. What do you mean what I read up there? But anyway, just-- just some annoyance, that certainly I'm sure showed through. And, you know, perhaps that annoyance that showed through would have led some to be annoyed with me watching the interview.

After going to Catholic school and hearing many a mention of God opening doors, I notive that no one mentions where that door leads. Hopefully for Sarah Palin, that door will allow her to plough through to a pack of hungry wolves, who will show her their appreciation for her helicopter-wolf hunting initiative.

Personally, I'm hoping for a door in a sort of Looney Tunes-type setup. You know, she sees the door, plows through it, and then seconds too late, realizes she's plowed through the door and off a very, very tall cliff.

Set up an open door at the edge of a cliff.

What about John Irving's open windows?

Saying "keep passing the open windows" is the family's way of telling each other to persevere. Lilly kills herself by jumping, having failed to pass that open window. [Hotel New Hampshire]

Maybe Sarah will mistake a window for a door...we can only hope...

Can we please just stop talking about this woman? Whatever comedy she offers isn't worth the damage she does. We need to cut her loose and let her fade into obscurity.

Posted by prenks | November 11, 2008 2:53 PM

When God opens one door and there's a black hole inside. Sucking matter and light into infinity where no Palin can escape.

Please send Mudflats lots of $$ over the next four years. We will need their reportage more than ever.
