Sarah Palin reads dumb Breitbart thing, accepts challenge, writes something dumber

Palin on Putin

I’ve often said that it is fairly obvious that Sarah Palin pays someone to write the things that show up on her ShoutyFace page because most of the time it doesn’t read like  the meth-fueled glossolalia of a not-particularly-bright 14-year-old. However it looks like  yesterday someone left a computer at the the Wasilla Public Library/A-Pro Transmission Repair shop unattended, and Sarah stumbled upon it while looking for a place to pee…and she wrote something for America.

Oh, lucky us.

It seems that Sarah read an article a headline at political parody site Breitbart.com written by Tea Partier/tax flake Michael Patrick Leahy that got her all het up and agroperterbulated (a word she will believe is real and will one day use) and she decided that she would share her feelings about those words Leahy wrote below the headline that she probably would have read if she weren’t already late for a nail appointment.

First off, Sarah wants you to know that she knows that the college basketball men (who are not Glen Rice) are playing in a big tournament on TV. This  is also a reminder that Sarah Palin played a little ball herself in high school in Alaska, so yeah, she’s a baller, yo.

Speaking of Paul Ryan (R-Granny Snuffer) with whom Sarah shares a rare kinship – both of them having been failed VP candidates on a ticket that lost to  a black man – Sarah points out that the  basketball men (sorry Charlie Pierce, not Marquette) from Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin  are in the Final Four.

Under the headline ‘My Own Final Four Bracket For America’s Future‘,  Sarah writes in her common-sense g-droppin’ folksy puddinghead style:

Holy Moly! Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices

Leaving aside “based on sacrificial work ethic” (?) we will simply point out that the plucky ‘underdog’ Wisconsin Badgers, who were the #2 seed in the west and are ranked #12 in the last AP poll, will be facing  the midwest’s #8 seed Kentucky who were unranked at the end of the season.

If Sarah Palin wants to know what an underdog is she should probably go on Teen Jeopardy.


The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightednes

Seriously, you can’t just go around spending taxpayer money willy-nilly and saddling future generations with debt for unnecessary stuff just because you want to be a lipsticky pit-bull hockey mom.

We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks.

Pork & kickbacks? Say it ain’t so

Reading the article linked below gave me the same reaction that my daughter just caused when she punked me with a very unfunny April Fool’s Day announcement.

I see that one of the Palin girls (Cedar, Spelunk, Moontan?) told mom she was pregnant again.


And with that, Sarah Palin has once again saved the republic.

Lucky us. Again.

In all fairness, Leahy’s piece was not the dumbest thing on Breitbart yesterday.  Behold:

When we last left the future presidential prospects of New Jersey Governor and teacher-yeller-atter Chris Christie, the barely breathing carcass had washed up on the Jersey Shore where it heaved and gasped and stunk up the area like a week-old chum bucket left in the sun. It seemed that only thing keeping it alive were the tender ministrations of the cast of Joe Scarborough’s morning chit-chat-bullshit show for DC beltway gossip lampreys. Joe & crew…

You lead a busy life. When you’re not wasting time at work, bip-bopping around the internet checking out ESPN.com or looking at pictures of hot actresses without their make-up and wondering if you’d still ‘do’ them, you still make time to do your real job: whether it is processing an…

While it is true that ”politics is show business for ugly people”, it is equally true that those who join the Beltway media become part of the high school that goes by the name of ‘The Villagers.’ Once enrolled, the maneuvering, the sucking up, the herd mentality, takes over as alliances…
