"don't get muzzled"

Sarah, honey, we talked about this. Kamala is a very intelligent woman who can be trusted to speak on her own. When your campaign tried to stop you from talking, it was for your protection as much as for the RNC.

I've noticed you haven't been saying very much this campaign season. We really appreciate it. Please don't feel the need to start now, just because you think you have anything useful or relevant to say. You don't.

Sarah Palin quit the office of governor pretty quickly because she was bored.

The best advice Palin could possibly give Harris is "Don't be like me.

Good headline.  And that's all that needs to be said.

Yes, follow the advice of the person that lost, quit the one real job she ever had, and now relies on reality television producers desperation for jobs. I think Harris will be fine on her own, Sarah.

If Harris is planning to turn herself into a reality TV star then she should listen to...  Wait... no. She failed at that too, didn't she?

Slight edit for clarity on how ridiculous it is.

Palin offering advice on how to deal with a campaign is hilarious at its core, but I also  read this as a little dig towards Trump. I recall a few weeks in the 2016 campaign where Trump was trotting her out semi-regularly. Of course, she was in batshiat crazy mode most of the time and appeared even more incoherent than Trump does not.

Then all of the sudden - *poof* - no more Palin.

I suspect they were thinking of a place in the Trump administration, but after spending a few days with her, Trump found her even too crazy for him. Palin maybe thought (just spitballin' here) a Trump admin job was her path back to relevance, but was kicked to the curb almost immediately.

So what does she do now? A sort of non-endorsement-endorsement, offering 'advice' from someone who has been in a campaign. Enough to say 'hey, I'm still here' and annoy Trump to some degree. Of course, the press smells an easy story so they all have to run it and the country collectively rolls their eyes.

As usual with Palin though, she completely misses the point - nobody wants to hear her screechy voice stupidities and political blubberings anyway. She is politically and socially toxic except to the whack-a-doodle segment of society. Sarah should go with what works though - shop for a new reality show, get arrested, have a family get arrested or all 3.

I really think it was the time she rambled on and on while Trump was on stage with her. She was also doing his speech essentially, the same grievances he goes over again and again, and Trump probably didn't like that. That was like the second or third event with her, and then she was on a plane back to Alaska. She also got the invite to come along with Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on her White House visit, a definite jab at her.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Sarah Palin quit the office of governor pretty quickly because she was bored.


No, she quit when she discovered that there were actual duties she was expected to perform, and actual work involved. She spent most of her time as Governor living in her own home, ignoring some pretty important phone calls and refusing conferences and meetings. There were several instances of her being unreachable for days at a time (at one point nearly three weeks) because she was out camping or something with her family or being completely out of the State somewhere so she could be on television. She just could not be made to understand that it was an actual job with responsibilities.

2020-08-12 7:44:41 AM  
I honest to God forgot all about her.  Thanks CNN for reminding me she exists. I just want to get back to the way things were before.  You know ignoring her and forgetting about her.
 
2020-08-12 7:47:35 AM  
Oh yeah. A Sarah Palin is a thing that exists.  Can't remember what it's used for.
 
2020-08-12 7:48:29 AM  
Ok. Sarah is terrible, sure, but people need to stop ripping on past gov't officials giving prospective gov't officials from across the aisle advice and best wishes.

One of the crowning jewels of our political system has been the peaceful transition of power for 200 plus years. I see these little notes as an indication that, for all their partisan grandstanding and theatrics for the media, at the end of the day these people would never seriously question that idea. Long may it ever be that way.

So yeah, I don't really care what Sarah in particular has to say. The fact that she wants to give Kamala advice at all, however, is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Let's all be pro civility in government.

Palin resigned from the governorship of an American state, which its people entrusted her with, to pursue opportunities in reality TV.

Like her or not, the people of her state - her friends and neighbors - chose and elevated her to be their leader, asking her to serve them, and she took an oath that she would. But then TV beckoned, so she GTFO.

That ought to be enough to never wish to hear her opinion on squat again.
 
2020-08-12 7:50:20 AM  
I remember when Palin was first nominated by McCain.  I didn't know a damned thing about her, yet I was pleased.  As a single father of two teen daughters, I thought it was time that a woman was brought into the Republican party.  McCain was a decent candidate, against pork barrel spending, had a self deterministic opinion on Social Security/retirement investments.

I had some doubts that Obama could handle the Middle East (turns out he handled it pretty much exactly as Bush did.)  I was still very much undecided on who I was going to vote for.

Then Palin started opening her damned fundamentalist mouth.  Evolution and creation taught in schools, bible week, gun humping, opposing abortion, even for rape and incest, anti stem cell research, abstinence as sex education, Obama birther, anti same sex unions, opposed to decriminalizing weed, for closing borders, oh you get the idea, etc.   McCain was a economic Republican, Palin was a horrible social Republican, and I deserted the McCain ticket in a heartbeat.

So much for that brief shining moment of being happy that a woman was selected.

She was quoted as saying...."her daughter's not even pregnant outside of wedlock, she doesn't have a son that took the military option as opposed to prison during sentencing and her husband isn t involved in an affair......how does Kamal hope to capture the imagination of the nation with such thin credentials?".....the former candidate finished tightening her walking shoes and got back in the line with the rest of the morning power-walkers at the Outerland Mall......this is Ironic McObvious reporting

Sarah Palin is a metaphor for mental health in the US.  She is pretty obviously schizophrenic but is able to present well for short periods of time.  Instead of getting her the help she needs the Republicans put her up for vice president
 
2020-08-12 7:54:26 AM  
I'll tell you what, Sarah - when Ella Emhoff gets knocked up, maybe then Kamala might ask you for advice. Until then, STFU.
 
2020-08-12 7:58:55 AM  
She fits in perfectly with the Trump administration. Incredibly stupid and still managed to use her position as governor to get her house built through graft.

She was probably just too old for Trump to look at so she missed her window of opportunity. She could have tried to dye her hair like Ivanka as a way in.

That's pretty typical of most re-publican women these days.  Look nice, great down-to-earth credentials, seem like they have decent sensibilities...then they start talking....*shudder*

You know what? Despite knowing deep down that this is just an excuse to get back in the news cycle, because COVID has really bitten in deep into appearances and undercut her income, because that book money is just not rolling in like it used to, this was a lot more gracious than I thought her capable of. A li'l self-serving to remind folks that SHE was a VP candidate, but this is in a race for President where the guy who clowned her at their debates without even trying, and she could have gone in full cray-cray, and she chose instead to go against even her own grain. And you know what? Good on her. Yes, it's a little transparent, yes it feeds into her Mavericky street cred, but still, this is the sort of civility we aren't going to get a lot of in this race, especially not from her side of the aisle, so enjoy it for a few moments.

Yes, she really laid a foundation FOR Trump to get on the ticket, just by being who she is, and her own brand of stoopid that sold, but I'll take the moment that she chose to NOT be a sh*theel, just for that's sake.
