Talk to the hand, Sarah Palin


Sarah Palin's helping hand

Yeah, so, I think Sarah Palin is a bitch.

There. I said it. I’m not sorry.

Angry Palin supporters, no need to comment. You won’t be changing my mind. And anyone who comments that I’m a traitor to my gender by calling her a bitch is a big ol’ tool. The truth is Sarah Palin is a bitch. There’s no “Oh, well, if a man was saying what she is saying …” going on here. If a man was saying what she is saying I would write a blog calling him a bitch, too.

As you know, the half-term former governor of Alaska spoke at the Tea Party gathering this weekend. She totally cares about America, everyone … for the right price, and that price was $100,000. A ticket to see her speech cost hundreds of dollars. Guess what? If you can afford hundreds of dollars to see Sarah Palin, then you are doing just fine, so stop your bitching about the economy.

So anyway, I was perfectly content to ignore the whole Palin speech and the Tea Party gathering. Why should I care if some power-hungry, idiotic former beauty queen gives a speech to a bunch of ignorant bigots? Who cares if Palin mocked Obama for using a teleprompter while she READ her speech from a podium? Who cares that before her speech she actually wrote things on her hand like a middle-school student cheating on a quiz? She’s an idiot talking to a bunch of other idiots.

But then, while criticizing Obama, Palin said:

“How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff workin’ out for you?”

Come on! That’s a bitchy thing to say. Seriously.

“Hey, how’s that positive thinking working out for you?”

This country is messed up. It’s not Obama’s fault. He inherited it from the previous president. He’s trying to make some positive changes to fix things, and now he’s getting shit from someone who is all about helping herself.

It’s like she walked up to an overweight person who is on a diet and said, “Hey, how’s that diet working out for you? I know you are trying to make positive changes in your life, but obviously it’s not happening fast enough because you are still fat. Oh, and fuck you!”

And that’s why I think she’s a bitch. She stood up in front of a crowd and said, “How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff workin’ out for you?” Meanwhile, she didn’t offer any solutions of her own. She doesn’t give a shit about this country, and it makes me sad that there are people out there who think she does.

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I am baffled why someone who didn’t have HOPE for this country would campaign to be its vice president. Why someone who didn’t want to make a positive CHANGE would run for vice president.

    If you really think that hope and change are useless, then you really have no business holding a public office. Then again, she doesn’t. Thank god.

    The woman rails against taxes and government, and yet she never misses the opportunity to capitalize on a tax incentive herself. Not to mention her $100,000 wardrobe, but that’s a rant for another day.

    And another thing, if neither she nor Todd have ever used the word “retard,” well, I’ll eat fire. Just sayin’…

    • I totally agree with you both. How can someone who calls herself a “maverick” and is so proud of “going rogue” say that change is a bad thing? I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at the hypocrisy and proud ignorance of someone who says that Rahm Emanuel should be fired for saying “retard” in a private meeting, but who refuses to criticize Rush Limbaugh for using his show to call people who think “retard” is an unacceptable term (i.e., Sarah Palin) “retards.”

      She is a money-hungry, power-hungry woman who publicly used her son’s disability for her own political gain. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the term “bitch.”

  2. She’s an asshat. She couldn’t even do the one job she was elected to so she has no business telling anyone, especially Obama, a goddamned thing.

    And that Tea Party Convention is bullshit. It’s a profit making thing that even many “tea party” people hate because it’s just a money making scam for her and her buddies. So she can seriously ride the failwhale back to her stupid lobbyist paid for house.

  3. I love how there was only, like 1000 people there but three news stations saw fit to cover it – since when does 1% of the population get 100% of the coverage?

    Also, the podium says “gaylord.” bahahaha. (Yes, I am five years old.)

  4. Her new name is Bitchy McBitchenstein

  5. You are my new best friend. That was the best Palin rant ever. Go Obama!
