She's a professional quitter now.

Even the dingiest of bats get sick of the smell of their own crazy sh*t, I guess.

Does anyone actually care at this point?

It's kind of fitting that this thread is as empty as the threat that started this whole mess.

threat dammit!

Anything that helps the implosion of the party who created these teabaggers in the first place, can't be a bad thing.

Please secede, Sarah.

I guess I can agree.  Just seems like a futile threat.  Like waving a gun and taking a hostage, but you pull Urkel out of the crowd.

"G'head.  Blow his stupid brains out."

Sarah Palin To Hannity: I Don't Want To Leave The GOP, But They're Leaving Me

It would be the first smart thing they've done in years.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: And not a single f*ck was given that day


Oh no I disagree. This means she is going to throw her weight to some third party. Probably the Constitution party or some-such nonsense. This means the 2014 elections are in the farking bag for the dems. I do believe I will have a celebratory toke.

Didn't Bachmann already say she isn't going to run for reelection when her current term expires?

Probably more a factor of all her finance scandals than anything.

Here is the thing-  Some people are saying the tea party leaving the gop would be a good thing because the remaining gop would be saner. I don't see any evidence of this. Has ANY republican said anything other than Obamacare is the worst thing in the world? Has ANY republican come out for raising the minimum wage? Has ANY republican called for raising taxes on the wealthy? Has ANY republican called out for shrinking the bloated military budget? Has ANY republican called for improving and saving SS, and not repealing/shrinking it?

The GOP won't suddenly start embracing things like that, but if they can get rid of the teabaggers they may at least try achieving their goals in the traditional way via debate and the established means of passing laws instead of the constant brinkmanship and fear mongering they're using now.

The problems with the teabaggers go beyond policy.  Many of them just don't understand how government works.  They don't understand compromise, they don't understand what the results of their actions will be, and they don't understand the relationships and quid-pro-quo of Washington.  That's why we had this whole debt ceiling fiasco - the teabaggers never made a good faith offer at a compromise, they demanded total surrender from day one, and more than half of them didn't even realize how disastrous a default would have been.  People like that shouldn't be in government.

The party can't lose the Governor of Facebook!
 
2013-10-17 11:28:56 AM
So a quitter quits?

This is so out of character for her!
 
2013-10-17 11:29:50 AM
Like all those Republicans who were leaving the country if Obama was re elected?

She'll start the Grizzly Party.  She'll be a hit with the Duck Dynasty voting bloc.

Morality and legality aren't really issues for GOP candidates.

They simply repent and say they'll never do it again and retain all the votes from the rubes.

See- Larry Craig.

Hey, it worked for Ralph Nader. The US flourished under his administration.

You younger Farkers remember President Nader, don't you?

I just received a response from the GOP to Sarah's comment about wanting to leave the party:

Seems they're not too broken up about the prospect.

69% of the Tea Party thinks that we can stop paying the interest on the debt and there will be no economic repercussions.

These people are beyond delusional. They're so ridiculously detached from reality.
 
2013-10-17 11:33:06 AM
But not for the reasons you might think. She wanted the world to burn in a Second Great Depression, the Secessionist B*TCH!

Remember, she was the one who rallied Tea Qaeda around Cruz's antics and kept Boehner from pulling back until 11:59:59 before midnight Thursday.

Nope. But just as you have to crawl before you can walk the GOP will have to learn to not actively try to destroy the country before they can adopt policies that might help the country.

On that note, someone needs to introduce this woman to Foursquare so we never have to farking deal with her again.

So let me understand this.  A former member of an Alaskan seccessionist party who later switched to Republican and then quit part way through her first term of her only major elected position (note, said major, Wasilla aint shiat) claims to be the true authority on what a "real" Republican is?  Really?
 
2013-10-17 11:35:50 AM
Should she follow through, then all who claimed that the Republican party received no benefit from the debt limit deal will be proved mistaken.
 
2013-10-17 11:36:18 AM
I really want someone to ask Sarah Palin straight on during one of these things "Really, who still gives a shiat about you?"

Now?

Saner people are leaving the party because it's too crazy.

Insane people are leaving the party because it's too sane.

It's like a swinging bucket with derp spilling out of both sides.

They didn't say that we should stop paying the interest on the debt. Their idiotic claim the past few weeks (while correct) is we can easily pay the interest without risk of default. We just have to stop giving money to SNAP, WIC, welfare, medicaid and social security so we don't incur any "new" debt, completely ignoring that congress has already agreed to spend the money on those things. So yeah, the government can easily not default, but the government will then be giving the shaft to its own people instead of its creditors.

So the GOP did get something positive out of this mess. Good for them.

This has quickly become my "favorite" quote:

"The whole middle-class-up economy format is completely ridiculous. Because who's going to give the middle class their money? The upper class. The middle class isn't going to make money coming out of nowhere. They've got to get a job. And who gives the jobs? The rich people. So if you take all the rich people's money, they're not going to be able to give anybody a job. Just it's so backwards. He [Obama] keeps talking about a strong middle class. I don't want a strong middle class. I want to make all the middle class rich people, because then you've got even more rich people who can give more jobs. It's like a - it's just ridiculous."

She's probably got her hubby or somebody else trying to crunch the numbers right and see what move will bring in the most cash.  Personally I think there are plenty of rubes in the GOP still willing to fork over all their cash to her, so why leave?
 
2013-10-17 11:44:02 AM
Well, what if she decides to quit quitting, hmmm?

Sean Hannity had long been a strong proponent of conservatives working within the Republican party to steer it.

He recently has been advocating for a third party.

This might be something going on here.

I guess she could go back to porn.  Loved her in Who's nailin Palin.
