Yes, that's a Big Gulp. Palin was making a jab at New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's proposed ban on big sugary sodas, which was struck down in court this week. "Bloomberg's not around," Palin said. "Don't worry." And the crowd went wild.

Because Bloomberg is the mayor of New York City, and your speech was in the state of Maryland.

Bloomberg is a heckuva strawman for the CPAC crowd. I don't know a single liberal who embraces Bloomberg. I've never heard one say, "Hey, you know who I wish could be president in 2016? That guy!" Yet, these CPAC people act like they're making some major dig at liberals by attacking him.

I always enjoy reading CL and Backpage ads during CPAC. There's a lot of 50+ white men "looking for a dominant black male" for a casual encounter.

Bloomberg is a Republican turned independent. They pile on him because he strayed from the party of guns and soft drinks.

He was a Democrat before he was a Republican. He switched parties just before he ran for NYC mayor in 2001. It was probably more opportunistic than anything. During his second term, he became an Independent.

Not to mention Bloomie has a huge pile of cash and he has already proven he will fund candidates who support his regulation mindset. I think he won 4 of 5 in the last election.

He definitely takes a pro-business approach, which seems to work out ok for NYC. But he seems very liberal with social issues.

I mean outside of the soda thing, I can't see anything wrong with Bloomberg.

I don't think Sarah Palin holds any beliefs higher than her own self-interest.  She may fool herself into believing she is not a charlatan, but basically she makes a living off of telling right-wingers whatever they want to hear using non-challenging language with no thought behind it.

And I expect her own mental image of the "middle class" (if she even thinks about it enough to form a mental image) does not represent the actual middle class, but is closer to "couple making $300k a year, living in a half-million dollar home and sending their kids to private school".  In other words, people doing far better than America's actual, vanishing middle class.

Both. Like any low-level conman she isn't very smart but she's picked up enough tricks to grift people that also aren't very smart or are smart but want to believe. In this case, she doesn't really know why BSABSVR is compelling to her audience she just knows it's something she can use to manipulate them.

FTFA: Tea party activists have complained that after logging in to or making donations on TheTeaParty.net or related sites, they found themselves besieged with spam from precious metal dealers who'd been renting the group's email list through Newsmax. The group has repeatedly come under fire for raising lots of money from tea party groups but failing to spend much of it on politics, and has run afoul of the FEC. During the presidential campaign, it raised $1.2 million but spent only $52,000 on candidates. Much of its money gets spent on advertising, including many TV ads that run with a variety of different tea party names on gun and hunting shows. The Tea Party News Network sent out fundraising emails asking for donations to cover the $75,000 CPAC wireless bill.

I am shocked -- SHOCKED! -- to find that sleazy dealings are going on here!

From the "This Is What Conservatives At CPAC Actually Believe" Department...

"Do you actually recognize that most TV shows are actually more conservative? Do you guys watch Modern Family? OK. Have you not noticed that it's actually a very conservative TV show? Um, for instance: they do have, like, the gay couple. But the gay couple are married. And they have a kid. Which is a very conservative thing. They are pro-family, the whole thing is about family. The family structure, which is a very conservative value."

And THAT'S why they're for gay marriage. Wait, what? They're vehemently opposed to any thought of it, and they have the highest rates of divorce in the Bible Belt states? The Dickens, you say!

No, he's got a point; they aren't conservatives by any non-American definition. Much like how the American definition of "Liberal" seems to be "Anybody to the left of the WWII Axis Powers."

I was thinking that. A bad salesman wouldn't have convinced so many people. What he was selling, the conservative American dream... now that's a whole other can of worms. But if you're saying that Obama's skills politically are on a par with Madoff's skills at selling junk as gold, you're not very good at insults. It's on a par with Napoleon Dynamite's

"We can't just ignore, though, that we just lost a big election. Yeah. Came in second. Out of two ... Second position on a dog sled team is where the view never changes and the view ain't pretty."

I honestly have no idea what she's trying to say here.

"If these experts keep losing elections, keep raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who should run in this party they should buck up and run or stay in the truck. The architects can head on back to the Lone Star State and put their name on the ballot."

The lack of self-awareness necessary for her to say this is astonishing. Since losing bad in 2008, has she done anything other than get millions of dollars while telling the GOP what to do?

But, and correct me if I'm wrong, the sled dogs aren't competing against each other, they're helping each other to accomplish a common goal. I assume they're placed in that order for strategic reasons. Are there dog elections? I would think that would be a better analogy for a bitter VP.

So, instead of standing in front of a crowd and announcing "I HAVE BOOBS," she was standing in front of a crowd and announcing "I HAVE A VAGINA"?

Car_Ramrod: But, and correct me if I'm wrong, the sled dogs aren't competing against each other, they're helping each other to accomplish a common goal. I assume they're placed in that order for strategic reasons. Are there dog elections? I would think that would be a better analogy for a bitter VP.

Maybe I should stop taking stupid analogies so literally.



Oh indeed, it's a weird, farked-up analogy without anything but the most superficial resemblance to what happens in an election. But it sounds all Alaskan and folksy and stuff, so Palin's followers lap it up and bark for more. As long as I get to point and laugh while they derp on, I am perfectly happy to watch them continue to double down on the stupid.

I'm sure there were more than a few CPAC attendees who would have gladly sniffed Sarah Palin's butt.
Or her panties.

This is really good news. As long as the GOP is so out of touch and loony at least they now suck at hiding it.

I wonder what the new conservative party in the country will be called.

Fluorescent Testicle: Jackpot777: "Do you actually recognize that most TV shows are actually more conservative? Do you guys watch Modern Family? OK. Have you not noticed that it's actually a very conservative TV show? Um, for instance: they do have, like, the gay couple. But the gay couple are married. And they have a kid. Which is a very conservative thing. They are pro-family, the whole thing is about family. The family structure, which is a very conservative value."

As a gay person who's been fighting tooth and nail against the Republicans for the right to get married, adopt a kid and raise a family:


Think of it this way: they realize it's inevitable and they're trying to justify it within the context of their existing values.

But another aspect of it (and what shows like Modern Family do a lot to combat) is that a lot of social conservatives had honestly never thought of gays as, like, normal people with jobs and health insurance and lawnmowers. "Gays" existed in their mind only as Tom-of-Finland caricatures; muscly, mustached leather daddies furiously humping at anything with a Y chromosome, popping amyl nitrate and dancing to bad house music at all hours. Thus, when they think of gay marriage and adoption, they think of those caricatures getting married and raising a kid.

So, when you read them proposing gay marriage and adoption as "conservative values," understand they're just now coming around to seeing gays as human. It's still terrible of them, but it is progress nonetheless.

JerseyTim: Bloomberg is a heckuva strawman for the CPAC crowd. I don't know a single liberal who embraces Bloomberg. I've never heard one say, "Hey, you know who I wish could be president in 2016? That guy!" Yet, these CPAC people act like they're making some major dig at liberals by attacking him.


After watching that, I couldn't help but think to myself most of the country's problems would be solved if Bloomberg announced he was going to push federal legislation banning cyanide.

So...Republicans are so far out of touch they don't even know who to attack to piss off the "liberals"?  They actually view a ban...that was already struck down...and wildly unpopular regardless... as a major issue to address?

It's just sad at this point.

vernonFL: Yes, that's a Big Gulp. Palin was making a jab at New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's proposed ban on big sugary sodas, which was struck down in court this week. "Bloomberg's not around," Palin said. "Don't worry." And the crowd went wild.

Because Bloomberg is the mayor of New York City, and your speech was in the state of Maryland.


And don't forget that convenience stores were specifically excluded from the bill, so it would not have impacted availability of Big Gulps, which makes that picture of her tired, derpy mug slurping on one all the more AWESOME.

They are political cheerleaders who don't even understand that their own "deeply held" beliefs change with whatever suave politician they fell for last. But because that's what most conservatives do, regardless of whether they know or not, they simply assume that liberalism works the same way. For example, despite massive evidence that Americans were deeply dissatisfied with the USA's (lack of a) health care system, for decades, most Conservatives think Obama's push for health care reform was what created strong feelings on the matter for Obama's supporters.

To simply the above..

Conservatives fall for charismatic leaders, and change their views to match that charismatic leader's. They assume the same goes for other political stripes, and they don't even realize how their views change.

Liberals fall for leaders who actually agree with the views they hold *now*. (e.g. Obama never had to "convince" a liberal that the health care system was broken)
