Philip Francis Queeg: Serious Black: 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.

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.


Actually, two days after he made the speech where he said that line, McCain took the lead in Intrade's predicted electoral map. He gained and lost about 40 points within a week, but other than that, he held steady at ~230 electoral votes all through August until just before the end of September.

Politician? I'm sorry, what political office does she hold again?

How can one be a "private citizen" if she is our faces all the time? Also, if all it takes to be powerful is to get people on thier feet at a CPAC convention and coin some erroneous catch phrases then Larry the Cable Guy is the most powerful comedian in the world.
 
2012-02-14 11:00:37 AM
No, but there is still an alarmingly noticeable contingent of our population willing to give her money and support.

Otherwise she'd be history.

Mugato: 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.


Brilliant!

Philip Francis Queeg: NeverDrunk23: She's more of an insult to the female sentient world.

FTFY


True. How about we simplify it as 'She's just an insult.'
 
2012-02-14 11:03:59 AM
She's not a politician. She failed to get elected as VP, then quit her job as Governor halfway through the term. She's been elected by nobody to govern nothing.

A town dog-catcher has a better claim to the title "politician" than Failin' Palin.

Power is often considered as a force behind pain, and suffering.

Sarah Palin is the most powerful politishian in the world.
 
2012-02-14 11:06:57 AM
Our friends on the Right promised us that if we just ignored her, she'd go away. What a shock to discover that our friends on the Right were lying.

To be fair, she is the leading member of the 'Stupid gotcha media, I'M the real victim here!'

Although, she's not some brilliant manipulating scam artist, worthy of praise for tricking her base in showering her in money. She was just lucky that her base is so goddamn stupid.

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

"...And I'm the idiot."
--Sarah Palin, CPAC Speech 2012

Well, she did manage to finally say something that was correct, so the speech did have that going for it.

Man, Republicans do love their hero worship. A week can't go by without some editorial about how peachy keen one of their own is. You don't get any editorials about anything good Democrats do, do you?

The crackpot GOP candidates gave the Politics enough thread fodder to keep traffic up. Now that they've winnowed down to only a few, Palin needs to be added back to keep the comments rolling from both sides.
 
2012-02-14 11:33:42 AM
Lets see:

1) doesn't actually hold political office at any level currently
2) her endorsement of candidates in the 2010 midterms was only 33 wins to 20 losses in what was otherwise a solid GOP year
3) she arguably cost conservatives control of the senate with her witch endorsement.
4) didn't bother to run for political office in the current year

I'd score those as utter lack of power, statistically no evidence of influence, conversely a significant rallying force for her democratic rivals, and finally politically impotent.

When the large chunk of the voting public stops glorifying and rewarding Ignorance.

So.....never.
 
2012-02-14 11:34:51 AM

oryx: 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.


Whenever wonk-eyed, turkey-necked, bad wig-wearin', drug-addled Sarah tries to use the "pundit" on Fox News, it comes out as "pundent." That's telling right there.

Sarah Palin is a glorified spokes person who has made her money milking the conservatives. By doing this it keeps her in the media spotlight. She and her PR person are great at this. They'll keep her quiet for a month or two then unleash her again to stir things up. Some reporters are paid, friends, or pulling favors by her PR team to keep Sarah in the media spot light. That's why she'll never go away.

I thought we were done with her?
 
2012-02-14 12:11:27 PM
What they meant is that she's able to increase her size and mass at will, becoming an unstoppable killing machine to tread puny liberals beneath her high heels. It only works if she's wearing enough leather, as her massive growing ability is fueled by the sadomasochistic longing of repressed Republicans.

Thankfully, she's vulnerable to "gotcha" questions, they completely negate her power. It's only a matter of time before the leather/gotcha equation tilts her way... if she shows up to the GOP convention in domina boots, and only Fox News and WSJ columnists are allowed to interview her, it will be a bloodbath. She'll spit Romney on her stiletto heel like a roasting pig.

I wouldn't worry. Unlike Rummy's use of the word, these actually are the last throes of her chum-to-shark popularity. The woman is largely irrelevant even if she does pop up to give some paid speech now and again. At one time, Fark was greenlighting 3,4 or more threads per day about her. Now? Not so much.

When even Fark can't be bothered to greenlight Palin threads, you know she's gone and forgotten.

Diogenes: Kibbler: Listen, rightwing, I would love to see Palin on the GOP ticket for either president or vice president.

Please.

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.


And if Palin got the nomination, the GOP mass seppuku would be a glorious thing to watch in November.

I'm still waiting for this lady to offer up an idea or an alternative to all the criticism she tosses out there. I'm not even trolling at this point. Has she offered up a single idea with any substance to it? I welcome cited links.

The comedown for a lot of her supporters when they wake up and realize she does and says just enough to keep making money off them (see also O'Reilly, Bill) is going to be impressive. I expect (sad country balladeer)'s album sales to go through the roof when this happens.

Soon her fans here will intentionally mass submit negative Palin headlines til one goes green and then enter the thread defending her and crying that subby and libs pay so much rude attention to her.
