At Last! An Obama Primary Challenger We Can All Get Behind
Given the vast amount of advice for the Democratic Party emanating from rightwingers at the moment and the yearning from some self-described progressives for someone—ANYONE ALREADY!!!!—to primary President Obama, it was only a matter of time before this final solution emerged, which is guaranteed to please them all.
Having so far failed to gain any mainstream traction in his bid to bring down Obama with his long-term birfer campaign, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily has a new cunning plan:
Lots of folks are still wondering whether Sarah Palin is going to jump into the 2012 Republican presidential campaign.
But if she really wants to make history, I have a bigger and better idea for her.
Brace yourself for a crazy idea.
Joseph, I’ve seen your columns over the past four years. Consider me braced.
Sarah Palin should reregister as a Democrat and announce her intention of seeking the Democratic Party nomination in 2012 over Barack Obama!
Crazy? I told you it was crazy.
But think about it.
How many Republicans nationwide would reregister as Democrats right along with her – temporarily – to support such a bold, unprecedented political move?
How many independents, who might not otherwise participate in primaries at all, would do the same?
How many Democrats, realizing they made a profound mistake in 2008, would vote for Palin?
Farah’s logic is unassailable. Palin’s “career” is going nowhere. The Republican establishment mistrusts if not hates her, and the feeling’s mutual, and the Tea Party, now considerably off the boil, has no shortage of batshit insane candidates willing to spout any old crap to pander to the basest of the base.
Chortling at his own ingenuity, Farrar goes on to cite Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos.” Because that was so successful. And because Hillary Clinton is obviously still totally indistinguishable in terms of accomplishments, intellect, and electability from quitty ex-governor and soundly defeated hasbeen veep candidate Sarah Palin in the minds of the wingnutariat.
The masterplan is already being greeted with some enthusiasm over at FreeRepublic. I haven’t checked whether it’s found its way to Conservatives4Palin yet, but it can only be a matter of time.
In other news from the nuthouse, Politico’s David Catanese reports with the straightest face he can muster that Orly Taitz is considering running against Dianne Feinstein for her Senate seat next year. Orly feels she’s well qualified:
“I think I do have a chance specifically because I do speak Spanish and I speak Hebrew,” she told the paper.
