No joke

(the more i see of her, the more afraid i become)

Sarah Palin gave the keynote speech at the Tea Party convention yesterday. She blasted President Obama, said the word "Reagan" several hundred times, and rallied her fans with confusing run-on sentences and catchy little bumper-sticker sayings like this "How's that hope-y change-y thing workin' out for ya?"

She enumerated some admirable goals without offering any workable solutions, urged a smaller government but a bigger military, and pined for the good ol' days of waterboarding.

Then she took pre-planned questions from the audience.

With pre-planned answers written on her palm.

I kid you not.

This is just sad.

Her supporters don't care. That's even sadder. (From one message board: "I'll take inarticulate but honest over smooth-talking liar any day.")

So, if she bugs me so much, why do I keep talking about her? Why give her even more publicity? Because like her or not, she isn't going away. We all need to understand exactly what could happen if the tea party movement grows stronger.

Imagine that legendary 3 a.m. phone call - with no crib notes written on her hand.

In fact, this morning on Fox News, Chris Wallace asked if she might run in 2012.

Her response: "I think that it would be absurd to not consider what it is that I can potentially do to help our country."



Absurd, indeed.



  1. Lesley, We are living in a nation of sheep that like to be told who to vote for and what to believe. If Sarah Palin looked like Ma Kettle do you think anyone would be listening to her. Hell No ! She is a lightweight ,oportunist who is making the most of her 15 minutes. Let's hope it is ONLY 15 minutes. You BETCHYA !

  2. Yeah, not good the USA has become a nation of idiots and it's by design.
    The Supreme Court says corporations are "persons" and they will have a big $$$$$$ impact on elections in this country.
    Buckle up kids, it's gonna get interesting!

  3. BTW Lesley, I like the header "slogan" you have about living in Texas and leaning left.
    Keep up the good fight because we (this country) need MORE PEOPLE like you to wake people up from the insanity of Beck, O' Reilly, Hannity, etc.
    God Bless You!

  4. REALLY SCARY! Now I won't be able to sleep tonight. I actually am related to people that PAID to hear her talk!

  5. There is a silver lining: Hopefully people will see what an idiot she is, and if she runs in 2012 the opposite side will win for sure.

  6. Let's see, things Palin could do to help our country...

    1. Locate the highest bridge in this hemisphere.

    2. Take a running leap off of it.

    The GOP would be completely asinine to put Palin up as a serious candidate for President. I'm hoping they have someone else lined up to go on the official ticket...hopefully, someone with more brains than a biscotti!
