An American Heroine’s Exit…

Half-baked, half-term Alaska Governor and reality TV show star Sarah Palin, who, with her intellectual co-equal, George W. Bush, is one of the two people most responsible for the election of Barack Obama in 2008, will not be speaking at this year’s Republican national Convention and has issued the following statement to Fox News personality and BFF, Grettan Ven Susteren:

Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today, and in fact the predictions made about the very unqualified and inexperienced Community Organizer’s plans to “fundamentally transform” our country are unfortunately coming true. This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them. As I’ve repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box, and I intend to focus on grassroots efforts to rally Independents and the GOP base to elect Senate and House members so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new President to get our country back on the right path.

And with those words signalling her intention to exit the center spotlight of a political party that has been strugggling to extrictate itself from under the crushing weight of her out-sized ego and vapid, vulgar, intellectually incurious persona, Sarah Palin drops off the political map to spend more time with her dysfunctional family.

So long Sarah, I’d like to say we’re going to miss you, but all the Stockholm Syndrome fairy dust in the universe wouldn’t begint to make that statement true.


I somehow doubt she’s going away willingly. And we all know how it will end.

Cue Wasilla Boulevard… a sad crazy old lady wearing waaaaaay too much make up talking to herself: “I’m ready for my close up, Mr Van Sustren.”

@ManchuCandidate: Sarah Palin is big. It’s the Republicans who got small.

What remains of her Fox gig must have been threatened to make her play nice.

Queries to the Romney camp about any possible Palin role at the convention meet with a stony silence. Palin does not seem surprised. “What can I say?” she responded in an email from Alaska, when asked by Newsweek about the convention, just before heading to Michigan to deliver an Obama-thumping speech. “I’m sure I’m not the only one accepting consequences for calling out both sides of the aisle for spending too much money, putting us on the road to bankruptcy, and engaging in crony capitalism.”
