Link is farked for me.  Is this the one where she wants to deport all those Guatemalan and Honduran children back to Mexico?

What will happen when Sarah Palin quits quitting?

How do you start with the reaction that the conditions undocumented minors face in this country is atrocious and come to so many wrong conclusions? Deport them? Their parents are here you daft cow!

We are such an inhumane nation in so many respects and so often our response to that inhumanity is even worse than the very thing we find so repugnant.

I'm surprised it's taken her this long to smell the money inherent in starting her own "All-Mercan Freedom Jesus F-150 Love Those Little Babies (unless they're darker than a cafe latte) Crying Eagle Party" that *you* can join there, you studly pile of man, for the low-low price of $49.99 per month and sure, the house rules say there's no sex in the Champagne Room, but when you get her in there she might just go crazy.

shiat, she even got the link to quit working.

News of poor conditions at a holding center in Arizona for undocumented, unaccompanied minors whipped Sarah Palin into a fury Friday -- so much so that she said she was on the verge of renouncing her ties to the Republican Party.

"Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals' war whoop," the former Republican vice presidential nominee https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152497461103588&set=a.101507 23283643588.424640.24718773587" rel="nofollow">wrote on her Facebook page. "I, too, demand that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now!"
The Department of Homeland Security
In her Facebook post, Palin cited heat, illness, unsanitary conditions and potential sexual exploitation at the holding facility as examples of "child abuse." She then railed against the GOP's unwillingness to engage in meaningful reform on issues like border security.

"As a Christian I find it unforgivable to ignore this issue of overrunning border security into these conditions in southern states, and this one issue is just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties because, see, even leaders on the RIGHT side of the aisle haven't exerted all Constitutional power to stop the madness," she wrote. "A few have tried, but until they're sent reinforcements, then atrocities like the child abuse and exploitation you're now getting wind of will only get worse."

She then accused President Barack Obama of orchestrating the "crisis" in Arizona in order to advance his own immigration reform agenda.

"In this case, Obama's refusal to enforce immigration laws and his blatant suggestion that his chosen illegal activity will be rewarded are proof of his tyrannical tactics," Palin wrote. "The recent numerous manipulated 'crises' have the media pinging and ponging trying to keep up with what is the scandal of the day, which one overshadows another, and how will they distract next, and who's on first?! Purposeful decisions causing these crises are meant to overload the system, justify abuse of executive power to 'fix' it all, and ultimately tighten control of the people."

But lest anyone thought Palin was siding with Democrats who have called for giving legal status to undocumented children, she added in a post-script to her note that she would prefer to deport the children:

"The primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents."

FirstNationalBastard: What will happen when Sarah Palin quits quitting?


13 When the dragon saw that it had been thrown down to the earth, it pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and a half-year. 15 The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth after the woman to sweep her away with the current. 16 But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth and swallowed the flood that the dragon spewed out of its mouth. 17 Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God's commandments and bear witness to Jesus. 13:1 It took its position on the sand of the sea.''


Suck it, Lib.

By the end of her FB post, she is basically repeating the Republican platform of asking for more $$ for additional border patrol and advocating deportation of all these children.  Still not really addressing the underlying issues.

Conservatives these days don't even believe in underlying issues. They are of a mindset that each person is acting rationally at all times, and independent of any physical, psychological, sociological or economical issues that us sane folks know push decisions into the realm of irrationality.

All the atrocities the republicans are A-OK with and finally something offends her "christian" sensibilities.  Huh, weird.

To be fair, if she only addressed the underlying issues generally plaguing the country, it would be a post talking about her and the republican party.

Yes, they believe in underlying issues. In this case the underlying issue is that there is a black guy in the White House and everything that goes wrong in this country is 100% his fault.

Sarah Palin doesn't actually exist. They took one of those latex dolls, with Disney magic, animated it, and basically combined Donald Rumsfeld's words with an upper Midwest accent and quirky sayings.

It was really the Republican's Golden Age of characters, what with W channeling cowboy Bob Dylan, and all.

Now hang on just a cotton picking minute ... if we are such an inhumane nation, then why are tens of thousands of desperate people crossing our border each month? Our response is repugnant?! We are feeding, housing, lawyering up, providing medical and social services, and cleaning up after these poor souls. Tell you what, Mr. ginandbacon, how about you sneak into Russia or China (or Mexico) and demand all of the aforementioned goods and services.

Uh, wasn't that what the Tea Party was for her?  She's probably only doing this because the Tea Party is no longer profitable for her.

I had really high hopes when I saw the Fark headline. And even though the synopses in-thread burst my bubble of hope, there may still be some good in this.

See, what I originally thought was that she was quitting the Republican party  because it wasn't far enough right. The hope was that she'd draw the tea party chaff off, split the Republicans, weaken both to the point that the Democrats could cruise to control in House and Senate for a few cycles, and then after the wing-nuts were completely marginalized and the country was more or less back on its feet, a new more sensible Republican party could provide the Democrats with a bit of opposition which, by that point, they could probably use.

But this works too. Sister Sarah wants to claim to side with liberals? Good luck with that. Liberals aren't into hero worship and cult of personality like certain other demographic groups I could name. The "queen bee" would still draw off a few of the nutters, but they would wander the left-right spectrum blindly and cease to matter. Even more delicious, she'd find herself adrift on an ever-shrinking ice floe of publicity, and when it ran out, her 15 minutes would  really be up.

I'm not entirely clear on the law; however, I think it more likely qualifies as "Talking out of ones ass" as you have to take the source of the words into consideration.  Given the fact she's demonstrably uninformed about almost any topic you care to name I'm not sure I blame her for her inane gibbering as much as I do the individuals tasked with her supervision.  Christ, if word processing programs didn't automatically prevent it from happening her E's would be likely be backwards.

I'd imagine she wrote most of this with a brow furrowed in deep concentration and her tongue slightly sticking out to the side of her mouth like a small child trying to focus on tying their shoes for the first time.

i really want to know what this execrable coont puts down as an occupation on her taxes. she's basically a tent-show grifter, stealing money from the poor and ignorant.
