Shackled: Palin Fears Presidential Run Would Cramp Her Style

Weird: Starting at about 8:45, Snooki makes a powerful case for sitting out the election, since serious candidates can’t be all free and mavericky and influential and stuff. Sure sounds like she’s decided she’d rather freelance than go through the campaign meatgrinder.

Weirder: She’s apparently unaware that her own PAC is fundraising on the tease that she’s poised to make her “crucial decision.”

Heh- the only thing that would be shackled is her pocketbook.

(Btw, I can’t see video; just a message the embed has been disabled.  I’d have actually gotten out of the boat, too.)

@elisabeth — I swapped out the original video box for the Fox News window. If you stop back, you may be able to watch this one.

Don’t get out the boat!

Thanks, Strange, for listening to that screeching harpy, so we don’t have to.

The C4P peeps are taking it pretty hard; some are even so bold as to imply that after shaking them down for 3 years, Palin owes them. Others are pushing back against the naysayers and making excuses for Palin’s continued dithering. Here’s my favorite in that vein:

pgroup Today 04:22 AM in reply to PhilipJames

The main reason God had the Israelites wandering around in a rather small area for forty years was so all the old farts with their Egyptian slave memories would die off. He didn’t want to bring that sick thinking into the Promised Land.

Maybe Sarah is doing something similar.

Hahaha! This should keep the PAC limping along until 2048-ish! Then, with all the RINOs finally dead, Sarah can swoop in and seize the reins of power and lead the faithful to the Promised Land! Why, she’ll only be 86 or so, and a well-preserved octogenarian at that, I’m sure.

It’s no use trying to predict the actions of a flake, but after enduring that Greta segment, I’m pretty sure Quitting Bull has made up her mind not to run. The bald-faced lie she told about not knowing SarahPAC is fundraising to encourage her to run is one indication.

Does anyone believe she’s not aware of those fundraising letters? This is the same woman who complained that one of her Fox colleagues failed to cite the most positive polling data. Her eye is on the fucking sparrow, at least where herself is concerned. That lie sounds like a preemptive answer to her disappointed followers who will feel, with good reason, ill-used when it finally dawns on them that they’ve been had.

The second indication that she’s not running was the contempt she heaped on the notion of needing a “title” to shape foreign and domestic policy. Who needs to be silly old “president” when she can just go undo US foreign policy via a dinner chat with a foreign head of state? Sour. Grapes.

@Betty Cracker — Seriously. Greta gave her two chances to say “OK, well, sure there are some things a President can do that I can’t do,” but Sarah refused to concede the point.

The “you don’t need a title to have an impact” line has been her parachute since the get-go…but this is the first time she’s sounded like she’s ready to pull the cord.

@arguingwithsignposts — I really don’t expect anybody to watch these clips anymore. She’s been a one-note rerun since 2009, and as a political commentator she adds nothing of substance.

This exchange is only interesting in that she genuinely seemed to be backing toward the exit.

Palin also denied any knowledge of SarahPAC’s “Quick! Give us money because Sarah might just quit dithering and decide real soon to think about saying whether or not she’s running” campaign.

C4P has started a dedicated “Hold Your Fudge!” thread to calm the panicky faithful.

Well, since FireDogLoonieLand can’t find an actual Dem or Tee-Vee Tough-Talkin’ Pseudo-Prog to primary Obama—are you thinking what I’m thinking? She switches parties! It would be SO maverickytasticalish!

Gawd it really is painful over there there is this gem from one of them though:

Sarah - just don’t use the title but still live in the White House for 8 years anyway - Problem Solved! (p.s. - you may want to be fumigate’n the place and set out some rat traps and stuff first)
Plus - do America a favor and get some folks to tear down those god awful solar panels that obamAA+ had put up on the roof. Good Lord!! Take me now….......

They are such sweet little old ladies over there aren’t they?

The die hard Pumas are going into orange pantsuit territory

She is in!  She has to time it with the release of the “Undefeated” next Tuesday.  She knows that the Movie release is a big part of her impending campaign. She has to keep everyone in the dark right up to the moment she announces.  Wearing her hair up is also a clue and she modulated her voice perfectly . Very presidential in all of her comments. She Announces within 10 days .

The best meme is the Tammy Bruce one though as echoed by several of the Bots over there

To me, it’s easy - I trust Governor Palin.  Therefore, I KNOW that she would have already said so if she wasn’t running.  Period.  Therefore, either she has not decided yet or she has a plan and she is in the process of implementing it (my view.)  If you listen to her comments from that standpoint, you get an entirely different impression.

The delusion is strong.

Is that you, Joseph?

Also.

Starting at about 8:45 ...

Have you ever done any work as a salesman, Strange?

Have you ever done any work as a salesman, Strange?

I didn’t think that was a deal-breaker, since you can slide the time-bar over and skip the non-essential craziness. Plus, it’s easy to clean and store out of sight until you need it again!

Now how much would you pay?

Oh my FSM I wonder which Puma this is:

Palin is wearing RUNNING suit for this interview.  Do we need any more clues?????

*snork*

@ Litlebritdifrnt—In addition to the up-‘do and voice modulation clues, one keen C4P observer noted that La Palin was clad in a track suit. A running suit. Geddit?!?! Running! Q.E.D., H8Rs!

I’m glad to see more and more glomming onto the Tammy Bruce logic. It will make the post-non-announcement meltdown all the more entertaining.

Ha! Pinch, poke, you owe me a Coke! ;-)

Feigning hesitation to run is exactly what Sun T’zu would advise, as a strategy to beguile her oppponents!

It’s WELL worth sliding it right to the end to witness Greta’s expression when Palin signs off with: “Thanks so much, Greta, talk to you soon.”

Jesus, YAFB, I must’ve missed that “primary Obama with Palin” thing the first time around. Or dismissed it as a nightmare resulting from too much red wine and nacho sauce or something.

Sound familiar?:

Many of Palin’s supporters sprang from the class of people who were never interested in politics, had never participated before, and probably a lot of them had never even bothered to vote before, how many of them will now just lapse back into that catagory, feeling that a person they really respected, and trusted, let them down?

I think I’ve seen this movie.

Solution: Barack Obama wins in 2012 and names Sarah Palin as Secretary of State. Works every time.

Florida’s now (almost) decided to put a spanner in the works for the GOP by bringing forward its primary schedule:

Well, This Will Cattle Prod Palin
by BigFurHat - September 28, 2011 - 10:53

CNN

Florida is expected to hold its presidential primary to the last day in January 2012, a move likely to throw the carefully arranged Republican nominating calendar into disarray and jumpstart the nominating process a month earlier than party leaders had hoped.

Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon told CNN on Tuesday that a state commission exploring potential primary dates is likely to choose January 31 to hold the nominating contest.

What is it with these disgusting Palin-fluffers and their obsession with applying “prods” to women? Sheesh.

The delusion is strong.

The C4Pers are only slightly less deluded than the loonies who hung out at African Press International back in 2008 waiting for Chief Editor Korir to finally release his “tapes” that would successfully expose Obummo as the fraud and pretender that he really was!

As I recall, regularly hitting the donation button was a big factor in being allowed to hang around.

The rubes sure love a good fan dance, don’t they?

I didn’t know she was a furry. Do they really wear the skins of flayed stuffed animals? Weird.

That’s not a running suit. She’s a Star Trek yeoman.

Rush just said he doesn’t think Sarah will run. Stand by for wails of despair.

Wow.  She has no impact on me at all.  I see her, and all I can think is, “Huh?  She’s still hanging around?”  Then again, I never click on these clips, so that helps a lot.  Boy, did she fizzle fast.

It’s time we had a president who knows how to field-dress a muppet.

Having been a participant both 1st and 3rd person in various sorts of shit-losings over the years, I can say there are only a couple of ways it can end when you get to the point where you’re wearing those kinds of track suits.  As entertaining as a raved-out Sarah Palin on DMT (“I can see the astral plane from my house”) would be, I’m rooting for the “Bulworth” option. 

Palin gets her mojo back when she leaves Tawd for college sweetheart Glenn Rice (played by rapper/actor Common), joins a sassy black church, makes jambalaya with caribou meat, repurposes the lyrics to an old-school rap song to instruct inner-city kids about supply-side economics (“I’m not old school, I’m home school”, she raps at one point), and eventually beats the president (played by rapper/actor Mos Def) in a symbolic game of one-on-one.

Boy, did she fizzle fast.

Yeah, but part of that was definitely the entrance of Gov. Goodhair into the race.  Now that we’ve learned that the emperor is really bald things could change.

Just a moment ago I fired up the ol’ PC for the first time today, and saw that “a title would shackle me” bit in a news link.  My reaction was/is as follows: 

BWAH HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! 

Ahem.  Carry on.

It’s time we had a president who knows how to field-dress a muppet.

/snort

(Now I’m off to watch the video.)

Okay, I watched a couple of key minutes.  Is Greta hoping she runs or not?  Almost sounded like she doesn’t think Palin should run and giving her an out.

Angry Geometer has already won the Best Picture Oscar, or at least Original Screenplay—the rest is just logistics, and shit.

The funniest C4P reaction has got to be for her flub of Herman Cain’s name (several times, apparently).  They pretend she called him “Herm”, not “Herb”, and furthermore that “Herm” is his name and now they’re all calling him “Herm”.  Because she MEANT to say that.

it’s WELL worth sliding it right to the end to witness Greta’s expression when Palin signs off with: “Thanks so much, Greta, talk to you soon.”

Greta can haz expressions? Doesn’t her face shatter?

I say we let ‘em have them all, and put them on Alcatraz-then we don’t have to go through this again.

Well, she had problems with Joe O’Biden in ‘08, so maybe she was trying hard not to stir up bad memories by calling him Herm McCain, and overshot.

My two favourite parts:

1.  Obama can do what he promised and he hasn’t however if she were President the black helicopters would stop her from doing what she promises.

2.  If this time next year America is The Best In The World again it still means Obama is useless.

@MaryRC — She was wrong either way:

“No one calls him ‘Herb’ or ‘Herm,’” explains Cain spox Ellen Carmichael. “In fact, he has a joke about the ‘Herm’ nickname. ‘You can call me anything you want, just don’t call me Herm. Only my enemies call me Herm.’

Because she MEANT to say that.

That’s great.  I just listened to the short clip and she called him “Herb” four times.  Kind of on a par with The Donald calling Rick Perry “Jim Perry”.

King Makers these days just don’t pay attention to details the way they used to!

Heh. Palin’s BFF Robert Stacy McCain checks out a Fox transcript of the interview (which for some reason has amended “Herb” to “Herman” throughout), and based on that evidence, takes his usual robust stance on this:

No, Sarah Palin Did Not Call Herman Cain ‘Herb’ and Did Not Put Him Down

“Read the freakin’ transcript,” he rants. “The media are trying to gin up a phony controversy — “Let’s you and him fight,” as they say down home – and the last thing Cain should do is to believe what the media say about Sarah Palin. They’re “makin’ up stuff” again!”

Then he actually watches the clip of Palin repeatedly calling Herman Cain “Herb,” after which his headline reads:

No, Sarah Palin Did Not Call Herman Cain ‘Herb’ and Did Not Put Him Down
UPDATE: Why Doesn’t the Fox News Transcript Match the Politico Video?

His article now carries this addendum:

UPDATE: Wait a minute — there is a discrepancy between the transcript and this video:

Something’s screwy: Is the Fox transcription wrong? Did Politico edit the video? What?

Cue steaming servers over at Google as some of his more gullible commenters desperately try to prove that everybody ever calls Cain “Herb.”

Cue steaming servers over at Google as some of his more gullible commenters desperately try to prove that everybody ever calls Cain “Herb.”

Or try to prove that the video was edited.  Because it’s so much easier to change a word in a sound recording than in a transcript.
