She’s Kinda Uppity, Huh?

A Palin-McCain administration? Isn’t supposed to be the other way around?

Remember when she didn't even know what the Vice President did?

Well, she still doesn't know. But after talking to Cheney, she no longer cares.

Her voice is the most annoying thing I've ever heard.

I wish we'd been in high school together. I've always been able to make the mean girls cry.

To be fair, Biden did the exact same thing recently . . . referring to a "Biden administration" before catching himself and laughing it off.

Tina Fey can play her in the movie, but they'd better get Frances McDormand to overdub the dialogue.

"Oh ya?"

McCain is calling for firing the SEC chairman.

Bad news for the trillionaire Leftist backers of SLOG!

Bailo, what are you talking about? I didn't think it was possible that you could be any more stupid. You are an embarrassment to Republicans everywhere.

Is it just me or does she sound a little like Fran Dresher?

She's going to dig her own grave with her tongue and I can't wait to see her fall in. What an idiot.

@7 Truly, that is an insult to Fran Drescher.

Does anyone else get Godfather flashbacks when she talks about "our family" setting policy?

#6, come on, lay off. I want to see if one of John Bailo's nonsensical memes will actually stick and/or start to make sense.

Is there ever such a thing as left-wing trolling? I'm thinking no.

Holy hell, I just had a horrifying vision in which the religious right has planned to assassinate a president McCain and place one of their own in the presidency.

She knows!

jeez, how long ya got?

@9,'s from playing the game for hours, for me.

I can only read articles on Sarah Palin. Whenever she starts talking, there are sharp objects nearby and I want to use them to puncture my eardrums.

She has political dyslexia--keeps getting the order of the ticket mixed up.

White privilege is not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is when asked by a reporter, and then people get angry at the reporter for asking you such a "trick question," while being black and merely refusing to give one-word answers to the queries of Bill O'Reilly means you're dodging the question, or trying to seem overly intellectual and nuanced.

White privilege is being able to claim your experience as a POW has anything at all to do with your fitness for president, while being black and experiencing racism is, as Sarah Palin has referred to it a "light" burden.

And finally, white privilege is the only thing that could possibly allow someone to become president when he has voted with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time, even as unemployment is skyrocketing, people are losing their homes, inflation is rising, and the U.S. is increasingly isolated from world opinion, just because white voters aren't sure about that whole "change" thing. Ya know, it's just too vague and ill-defined, unlike, say, four more years of the same, which is very concrete and certain.

She's hot.

Again, the niggling feeling that should McCain somehow make it to the white house, he would suddenly meet with an unfortunate "accident."

Posted by Sam | September 18, 2008 9:35 PM

Hmm. Seems pretty presumptuous to me.

Posted by Mike in MO | September 19, 2008 6:58 AM

McCain gets elected, dies within a year, Palin becomes Pres. Due to her lack of diplomatic skills we have nuclear war in the Middle East within three years. Conservative Christians will rejoice. It is fulfillment of Biblical prophesy - end times when the world is on fire.

I live in Cedar Rapids and watched the "event" online live. First of all Ms Palin didnt even know what town she was in. She said "Hello Grand Rapids" twice, not Cedar Rapids, Grand Rapids.

Secondly she congratulated us on our new hockey team the Iowa Chops. This team is located in Des Moines, again not
Cedar Rapids.

She referred to her husband as "Alaska"s First Dude" People this one is a trip, makes me remember the phrase "You can take the girl out of the trailer, but you can't take the trailer out of the girl"

Alaskans staged the biggest rally in the history of the state last weekend AGAINST Sarah! AK Alaska Women Reject Sarah Palin rally pics here:
