In hope that she’ll do it, Tea Baggers are slapping “Run Sarah Run” bumper stickers on the back of their cars. (Progressives have theirs on the front!)
Like all Presidential wannabes, (serious or pseudo) Sarah tends to gravitate to Iowa a lot and somehow I don’t think it’s for the climate.
In that vein, she dropped into Des Moines to address Steve King’s Iowa Freedom Summit. At least her body did. From all reports, it seems that her brain just might have missed the plane.
Bare in mind that this is Sarah “Todd’s got the gun and I’ve got the rack!” Palin, but even by that standard, this was “interesting”! FYI, this time she didn’t use “hand notes” but she did make use of a teleprompter.
And, that’s where it gets interesting. The teleprompter froze!
Now, Sarah was supposed to be giving a long speech. Unless you really know your stuff, a teleprompter or copious notes are invaluable. The good(?) news is that she brought along a whole binder of notes. The bad(?) news is that there didn’t seem to be any coherent organization to them. Add to that the fact that she may well have been a bit unnerved by the situation. Nervous people tend to talk faster and as one reporter wrote, she delivered “an entire speech in one incredibly long run-on sentence”
Here are a few of her more interesting mouth droppings.
“The man can only ride you when your back is bent. So strengthen it! Then the man can’t ride you. America won’t get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.
“What will they do to stop causing our pain, and start feeling it again? Well, in other words, um – Is Hillary a New Democrat or an old one?”
“Screw the left in Hollywood!”
“Now I’m ready for Hillary Are you? Are you coming? ““Now the press asks, the press asks, “Can anyone stop Hillary?” Again, this is to forego a conclusion, right? It’s to scare us off, to convince us that – a pantsuit can crush patriots?”
“Knowing what the media will do throughout 2016 to all of us, it’s going to take more than a village to beat Hillary…We the people, we realize that this is war, as I say, it is war for the solvency, the sovereignty of the United States of America. And we don’t sit on our thumbs this next time when one of our own is being crucified and falsely accused of whatever the hip activation of the day happens to be, right? Racism, sexism, whatever. Really, it’s kind of Orwellian observing how that works, that rule of Saul Alinsky’s I suppose, that the left employs. Disgusting charges from the left. You know, reverse them. It is they who point a finger who don’t realize they have triple that number of fingers pointing right back at them, revealing that they are the ones who really discriminate and divide. “
“They’re howling through the press, you know, ‘cruelty to animals, Sarah Palin. Which surprised me considering what it does that Joni does to those poor defenseless really great tasting Iowa hogs.”
“I don’t say this lightly. This is the strangest speech I’ve ever seen Sarah Palin deliver.”
“Sarah Palin is now the rodeo clown sent out to get the crowd riled and make the real cowboys look better in comparison.”
“Following Palin, Rick Perry sounds like Pericles”
