Considering that she hasn't held office in how long, I suspect that by "powerful" they mean "visible" and by "politician" they mean "woman who talks a lot to get money from rubes who don't realize that she has no office and less effect than Phyllis Schafley to get swing voters towards a candidate"...

Angela Merkel, Julia Gillard, Cristina Kirchner (biatch)


Somebody should really introduce the author of that pile of excrement to an atlas, and point out that the world is bigger than the USA.

Powerful? As in powerfully stupid?
 
2012-02-14 09:27:26 AM  
But no one else can speak and shake the corridors of power to the foundation as can Palin.

Reads like bad fan porn fiction.

Well, to use an example from above, if Andrea Merkel wanted to invade Poland again, as German leaders have, unfortunately, been wont to do, she could order that.

Sarah Palin just mangles the English language on Fox News occasionally.

Angela Merkel runs a country and has a little influence in Europe.

You're an idiot.

Second in exports, fourth in GDP (and that's not just in Europe). What would constitute more than "a little influence"?
 
2012-02-14 10:19:02 AM  
Just...no.
 
2012-02-14 10:19:26 AM  
If one doubted Sarah Palin wields great power by virtue of her charisma and persona, that notion was laid to rest during her speech at the CPAC convention when she had the overflow audience on their feet numerous times.

Uh huh. And a fat ugly girl could get laid at an anime convention, but that doesn't make her a supermodel.
 
2012-02-14 10:21:09 AM  
Angela Merkel has the ability to turn Alaska into a cinder.
Advantage Merkel

That regularly happens during CPAC's traditional sing-a-long of "Head Shoulders Knees and Toes".

This.

Being unable to be elected to public office while appearing on Fox News from home in Alaska, obviously.
 
2012-02-14 10:22:13 AM  
Listen, rightwing, I would love to see Palin on the GOP ticket for either president or vice president.

Please.
 
2012-02-14 10:22:27 AM  
But Sarah's got some nice pins and Merkel and Clinton have cankles.

How much clearer can I make it for you haters?
 
2012-02-14 10:23:25 AM  
Also a pretty loose definition of politician.

Looking at the circus freaks still standing in the race, I'd have to say she may actually have had a shot at the nom.
 
2012-02-14 10:25:13 AM  
I don't think powerful is a bad word to assign to her. After all, she was single-handedly responsible for crushing John McCain's hopes of being elected president, and that's something that requires a ton of power.
 
2012-02-14 10:26:23 AM  
remember when Sarah Palin disappeared from this tab for a few months? What happened with that?
 
2012-02-14 10:27:33 AM  
"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."

--Sarah Palin, on Paul Revere's midnight ride, June 3, 2011

your average maint. man: i'd still hit it! you know, being all crazy and whacked....


I totally would too. She's so tightly wound that the only time she can really let loose is in bed, and my money is on her being into BDSM.

John "the fundamentals of our economy are strong...Oh shiat the world is ending I must suspend my campaign!" McCain did more to crush John McCain's hopes of being elected President.

2012-02-14 10:33:05 AM  
It's the Yahoo Contributor Network! Where a website with name recognition provides uneducated, uninformed morons the opportunity to spread their paranoia, hate and bile to people world wide!

Seriously though, besides the blatantly stupid headline, the article is about how Republicans want to bang her, and how much the author hates Bill Maher. And the author blatantly dismisses Angela Merkel for only "running a country".
 
2012-02-14 10:36:32 AM  
The only reason you are offended by this statement is because Sarah Palin is a woman.

Stupid chauvinist libs.

Note to Subby: Queen/Attention Whore of Facebook is like being the best damn Farmville farmer.

It has no effect on the real world.
 
2012-02-14 10:42:22 AM  
How about ...no?

She less "powerful" than most any other retired politician making speeches, like Jimmy Carter or Bush the elder.

Which means "not at all". At least those other guys might get a meeting with somebody important about a tertiary issue like some hostage or trade-war kerfuffle.

That was so retarded I would almost believe it came out of Sarah Palin's vagina.

Define "politician"...

Or conversely, "Don't throw me into the Briar Palin patch, Fox News! She's the only person who could beat Mr. Obama!"

The funny thing is that no matter which of these is being said, the far right interprets it as either reverse-psychology or reverse-reverse-psychology and sincerely believes that Palins scares the dickens out of the left. In a threatening way, not in a "holy god, that person is still relevant?" way
 
2012-02-14 10:45:21 AM  
This is ridiculously myopic. Palin can whip up the Republican base into a frenzy, but her supporters' enthusiasm doesn't necessarily translate into the ability to influence policy. If she was in any way as powerful as this dude wants to believe she is, Christine O'Donnell would be a Senator.

2012-02-14 10:48:26 AM  
If by "Most Powerful Female Politician In The World" you mean "most powerful female non-politician among the red states of America," then yeah...

And red state America is in fact what "conservatives" consider to be "the world."
 
2012-02-14 10:49:41 AM  
She's not even a politician. She holds no office and is not running for one. You might call her a pundit, but that would imply that she has something to say worth listening to.
 
2012-02-14 10:50:32 AM  
She's more of an insult to the female world.

Not to mention the fact that German controls the monetary policy of the entire European Union and has leveraged this power to influence the fiscal policy of its member states (see: forcing austerity cuts on Greece in exchange for a bailout).

Merkel essentially holds the power of the purse for an entire continent, but it's the former half term governor who hasn't run for higher office but is trying to make herself into a party kingmaker that has all the power. I know this is an editorial, but this dude needs to educate himself.

Tripe.

/it's what's for dinner.
 
2012-02-14 10:55:18 AM  
How is she a politician? She was governor of the US's Hoth for 20 minutes and quit. Politicians are people who like, hold or are running for political office.
 
2012-02-14 10:56:50 AM  
I think Mr. Whittington has confused "the world" with "his pants".
