Palmetto State SNOWjob

As everyone now knows, Dixie Republicans are like a race of amoral bunny-people, mindlessly boinking one another while denouncing Democrats for failing to live up to biblical standards of morality. When they get caught, they issue denials until irrefutable evidence emerges. Then they provide a tearful confession and get Jesus in a big way. It’s as predictable as the goddamned sunrise.

Who knows why they’re like this? Could be the heat. But the point is, it happens all the time, and, as my colleague Kevin noted yesterday, no one with a lick of sense would wade into an unfolding Deep South GOP sex scandal tossing categorical statements around, much less issue a Mean Girls-style Facebook edict on the topic like Sarah Palin did. 

Still, some folks are astonishingly credulous—a fact that makes Sarah Palin’s entire career possible. And it’s not just her simple-minded Facebook fans:

If Palin is going to make such a strong statement here, we have to believe that the Haley team truly believes that no further evidence is going to surface, despite what Folks implied in his original post (he claimed that he was coming forward with his confession to head off the inevitable proof that was going to come out).

Jeebus. I’m guessing that guy hasn’t been covering the Dixie GOP beat for very long. The odds that “further evidence” will emerge are pretty high, even if the “gentleman” in question is a wingnut cad.

And late last night, the wingnut cad taunted governor wannabe Haley, whom he says calls herself the “Texting Queen,” to release what he describes as their “voluminous” correspondence:

All we can tell you for now is that the record of correspondence between the two of them began on November 20, 2005 – with an email sent at 8:33 a.m. from Haley’s State House email address [REDACTED] to Will Folks’ personal address [REDACTED] in which Haley complimented Folks on an article he had written praising her gubernatorial ambitions.

We know … how ironic is that?

That four-and-a-half year record of correspondence ended on Saturday, May 22, 2010 – three days ago – with a text message sent from Folks’ cell phone to Haley’s cell phone at 1:04 p.m. alerting her to the fact that he had been placed in a position where he felt that he had no choice but to address the rumors regarding their relationship on his website.

Those are the bookends … but what happened in the interim?

A lot … stay tuned …

We will, Duplicitous Dixie Douchebag. We will.

I didn’t think something like this would have come along until at least Wednesday.

Either Folks is the dumbest, most reckless liar in the world (possible) or, more likely, Palmetto Palin’s political career is doomed.

This really does smell. And Sarah, who enjoys endorsing people she doesn’t even know (like Clint Didier) may have just done a Big Dumb Thing because she’s a rootin-tootin’ untouchable Mama Grizzly whose Facebook notes are sounding more and more like drunken emails from Jack Palance to Billy Crystal.

But Palin may have problems enough of her own, since—for all her money and power—she stupidly let crusading anti-Sarah political writer Joe McGinnis move into the house next to her lakeside mansion, where he’ll be polishing his muckraking book-length demolition of the Palin mythos, Sarah Palin’s Year of Living Dangerously.

Wow, I didn’t think Palin’s Facebook screeds could get any weirder…

I know we’ve been a little Palin-heavy lately, but I had to throw up a quick post about her McGinnis entry after I saw it at TBogg’s.

If she’d just quit saying stupid and/or psychotic things, we’d stop.

Not. Gonna. Happen.

$20 says Haley give a tearful confession late Friday afternoon, just before the holiday weekend.

I don’t think anyone’s taking that bet, Tom.

Who knows why they’re like this? Could be the heat.

It’s not the heat, it’s the stupidity.

@ Tom—The wingnut cad just doubled down. I don’t want to believe him because he sounds like an asshole attention whore, but it’s starting to appear he’s got the goods. So yeah, I think you’re right about the upcoming tearful confession. Friday afternoon would be a good time to do the dump.

BTW: The New Agenda has been a big Haley backer. I give them credit for being smarter than Palin, though.

@ Allan—LOL!

Stand by for Palin’s forthcoming Facebook essay on “Temptation and Forgiveness.”

If Palin is going to make such a strong statement here, we have to believe that the Haley team truly believes that no further evidence is going to surface,

Really?  If Palin says it, it MUST be true! Cuz you know she wouldn’t ever make a dumb ass move like not checking the facts first before opening her dumb ass mouth!
