anything that separates ignorant racists from their money is fine by me. keep it up, Caribou Barbie!

Like there was any question of the intellectual capacity of her followers?

Small donors, of less than $200, are grouped together in un-itemized donations. Over 75 percent of SarahPAC's donations-$341,556 out of a total of $446,880-were un-itemized.

There are at least 1717 people- and likely thousands more- who have less than $200 to spend on politics, and they gave it to her.

That's...that' s amazing.

Absolutely nothing should happen to her. I am perfectly fine with this arrangement.

I would really prefer it go to that than to anything that will help people like her get elected.

I too am full in favor of processes that increases the distances between currency and fools that possess it.

I wonder what it even does or claims to do?

I've been getting bombarded with conservative PAC calls lately.  I've had recorded messages from Ann Coulter, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich.  A virtual who's who of conservative losers.  But not one call from Sarah or her PAC.

I'm going to send a $1 donation in the name of Munchma Quchi.

That money could go to provide proper health care for dozens of right wing bloggers.

A retarded, backwards, racist fool and his money...
 
2013-08-02 04:22:06 PM  
This must be a real-life example of spending all the money on "hookers and blow, and the rest was wasted."

Let it go...the more attention she thinks she's getting, the more she talks....The more she talks, the more she convinces herself she's always right and entitled to whatever she wants...when she does that, she gets in front of the camera and embarrasses herself...The more she embarrasses herself the more attention she thinks she's getting....

It just never stops.  The only way to get her to shut up is to ignore her.

Sandra Dyberg of Vacaville, California, who gave $201.60 to SarahPAC, said she felt confident in Palin's hiring decisions. "The consultants that she uses are good consultants," she said. "I've done research on them."

Ms. Dyberg must have studied it out.
 
2013-08-02 04:27:10 PM  
Hey, the more retards donate to her, the less they have to donate to Republicans that actually intend to seriously run for anything.
 
2013-08-02 04:27:51 PM  
This is what republican "private charity" that they imagine can replace welfare will do.  It will go to their "heroes"

While they scream how Obama is stealing their money.

that's it i'm starting a Super PAC..not sure what its going to support, but i figure if i just make sure I drop the words "socialism" "muslim" "real American" and "praise jesus" it will make me money.  Anyone know if the Kochs are looking to fund a "reformed" liberal who found the bible of John Calvin?
 
2013-08-02 04:30:11 PM  
My wife asked me the other day what it was that Sarah Palin was raising money for and that's exactly what I told her. She's raising the money to fund her lifestyle, it's basically a scam.
 
2013-08-02 04:31:39 PM  
What exactly are these consultants? Hair consultants? Wardrobe coordinators? PR firms? If she's not investing in political candidates they aren't political consultants.
 
2013-08-02 04:33:44 PM  
Also, water is wet and farts are often smelly.

On the plus side, at least it keeps them from spending money on conservative causes that might actually influence elections.

Once her pac dries up I wonder if she will end up on here

Congratulations on discovering the true nature of most "non-profits", "not-for-profits" and "charities" - which is to enrich those who run them.

FTA: Following requests from a social-media campaign, the former Alaska governor agreed to speak to Republic High's graduating class of 26. According to the Spokane Spokesman-Review, the speech was a big success, as a crowd of 700 assembled to watch Palin speak. All of the graduates found a dollar bill taped under their chair, courtesy of the former vice-presidential candidate, in order to instill the lesson "You gotta get off your butt to make a buck."

Wow, can't you just feel the warm folksy wisdom just spewing forth?

Given that she's diverting money that might otherwise go into a real race, I think I want to hear her speak more.

My estimation of Palin's intellect has increased. Fleecing rubes probably isn't that hard, but surely doing it so thoroughly requires some greater than average intelligence.

Seems pretty weird to me.  It's a handout AND a participation award.  I thought Sarah types hated those things.

No way! Sarah is actually doing us a service - she demonstrates what's wrong with the GOP, separates suckers from money they would otherwise spend on viable Republican candidates, and provides endless hours of free entertainment.
 
2013-08-02 04:40:44 PM  
And, since it's a PAC it's tax exempt, right?

I'm rough on the precise classifications.  But it really would be funny if they were given IRSGate.

I'm not sure.  Let me check what's written on her palm.

I'm tired of seeing this argument. People like Rush had a core, crazy demographic of followers before he peaked and he'll have one long after he's dead and gone. Same for Palin. Pretending that the detractors are responsible for their ongoing "relevance" is a fundamental misunderstanding of the direction of causation.

Nutjob with a bullhorn ---> %crazy people in a crowd will always be greater than 0 ---> Non-crazy people saying "please shut the hell up, the rest of us can't think straight"

Keep in mind, in previous years the single greatest expense her PAC had was purchasing books.  Directly from Sarah Palin's private publisher.

The graduates had to turn in the dollar before they were handed their diploma on stage.

She could go full-on cult status with this if she really wanted to, I'm convinced. Like, full on "Come on y'all, send me $40 million and let's buy this big parcel of land in Montana and we'll live off the land and build our own houses". I know people personally that, if they told me they were following her to go do this, I wouldn't be shocked.

Ironically, I make multiple times the median wage in my county at a desk job, sitting on my butt all day.
