“If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band.”

And so begins Ted Nugent’s fawning poem to Sarah Palin, one of Time Magazine’s 100 leaders who most affect our world.  (BTW, she does, Ted.  It’s called her voice.)

It’s not clear whether she was intended to be in the “best of” or “worst of” category but Nugent leaves no doubt that the starburst factor is at work for him.

In the way she lives, what she says and how she dedicates herself to make America better in these interesting times, she represents the good, while exposing the bad and ugly. She embraces the critical duty of we the people by participating in this glorious experiment in self-government.

Yes, routinely telling lies about people, backstabbing those who have helped her get ahead, using her job to enact revenge on people she doesn’t like, stuffing her closets with free designer clothes and her pockets with free goodies, pulling her kids out of school to use them as campaign props, quitting her job as governor halfway through her term so she could go out and make a boatload of money from her book and speaking fees, and publicly feuding with the father of her grandchild - all these are things that I think represent the Good in America.

Feel free to share the the Traits of Sarah that you see as representing the Good in America too.

I’m embarrassed to say Ted Nugent graduated from my high school.

He’s like the original internet tough guy. Dodges the draft then gets all gun nutty when what he is shooting at can’t shoot back.

So in the “leaders” category, Time includes Palin and Glenn Beck but leaves out Hillary Clinton. Does Rupert Murdoch own Time now?

As for Ted Nugent, he’s a washed-up, talentless, gun-fondling, wingnut asshole—no wonder he’s in the Palinese Liberation Army.

Well, let’s see…

She’s not Hitler.  Or Stalin, just to keep it balanced.

“If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band.”

Palin is a loud, grinding instrument.

I was going to put down “She’s not touching your penis, Ted”.  But I decided that that was too crass.

Feel free to share the the Traits of Sarah that you see as representing the Good in America too.

I’ll try to find some and bring ‘em to ya!

...and quitting halfway through her first term as Governor of a state with the population of Baltimore, all so she can chase that sweet, sweet wingut cash harvested from the broken dreams of angry middle aged white people.

I’m getting SO effin’ tired of hearing “We the People” out of these people.

One of the funniest questions I ever read was in a category I like to call “questions which answer themselves.”  It was on a blog which asked, “What can we do to fight the meme that Sarah Palin is a quitter?”


Well, they could always have Superman reverse the Earth’s orbit, though I think that would be fruitless, as she’d only QUIT AGAIN.

She embraces the critical duty of we the people by participating in this glorious experiment in self-government.

So does every registered voter, Ted. 

Let us know when you find any actual accomplishments to put through that Wingnut Word Salad Shooter.

Y’know, Sarah Palin donated $150,000 worth of designer clothes to charity.  I would think that would count for something with you people.

Ingrates!

One of the funniest questions I ever read was in a category I like to call “questions which answer themselves.”  It was on a blog which asked, “What can we do to fight the meme that Sarah Palin is a quitter?”

Was that on Conservatives4Palin.com?  If not, it was probably copied from them. I’ve seen it in several wingnutty blogs and comments.

Conservatives4Palin kindly offer “sample dialogues” that you can use to convince lefties that they’re totally wrong about Palin, wrong, wrong, WRONG and big stupidheads to boot. 

For example if someone says that Palin is a quitter, start off by asking them “Did you ever quit your job?  Hhhmmmmm??” and in no time, they’ll be sheepishly mumbling “Uh, gee, I guess you’re right.  She did quit for the good of Alaska.” 

You can find them here

What kills me is that none of the people who write, quote or gushingly approve of these brilliant arguments seem to realize that the person you’re arguing with may come up with answers that aren’t in the script. So what do you do then?

@MaryRC

Quitting a job isn’t that unusual or that damning.  But Palin has a history of never staying in one place for any length of time.  It took her five colleges before she graduated.  (Truth be told it took me a few too, but I joined the military and worked successfully at other jobs before deciding to go back to school.)  She was a sports anchor briefly, mayor briefly and then governor briefly.  By most accounts she’s a part-time mom, too.  (Granted President Obama freely admits to being a part-time dad but, the kicker is, he admits to it.)  With a track record like that sane people would question her staying power; just as, I might add, people questioned Obama’s.  I’d like to think that had Obama lost the election (oy, that’s a really bad thought) he would have remained in the Senate at least until the end of his term.

Mary, the sample dialogues are a howl. Each one opens up vast minefields of awkwardness that no Palin supporter really should wander into: does Sarah sound like she wants a cushy lifestyle? I’d bet a half-governor’s tanning bed she does! Do you know she quit her oil and gas commissioner’s job to protest corruption? Yes, and after she got her GOP colleague fired, she turned around and did the exact same thing he did! Did you know it cost her to go to work every day because of all the money the bogus investigations were costing her? Actually, the state of Alaska paid for her defense, and she stayed home so much (charging the state for her food nevertheless) that the legislature started wearing “Where’s Sarah?” buttons.

Thanks for the productive dialogue, Conservatives4Palin—-even your banner shows her turning her back on you.

@ MaryRC—OMFG, those are hilarious! I’m so inspired by that genius tactic that I’d like to offer my own “Sample Dialogue” for converting Conservatives4Palin from the dark side—in which 100% of the Palinese quotes are from the link you provided:

Scenario #1: Drooling over booger-eating moron pols shows bad character—or is it merely insanity?

C4P: Isn’t she really the patron saint of “no politics as usual”?

Me: Who, Palin? Fuck no. She blends the intelligence of George W. Bush with the political sensibilities of George Wallace. The only thing unusual about her as a politician is that wingnuts get boners when they see her.

C4P: And don’t we need more leaders just like her who won’t go with the flow?

Me: For fuck’s sake, no! Palin is a blithering moron, and the country would be better off with a dead carp occupying the Oval Office than her.

C4P: Do divas actually fish?

Me: How the fuck should I know? Ask Governor Bendy-Straws. Jesus. And why do you wear your underwear over your pants? Don’t you know you’re suppose to put them on first?

C4P: I guess so. You may have a point.

Piece o’ cake…

Imagine a Palin/Nugent deut.  Throw in some wildlife, and you got yourself a GWAR show.
