Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Palin Drone Edition

Good morning, all – it’s been a quiet week in Freeperville, and I thought I would have to do another Putrid Potpourri Edition, when suddenly, a gift from the gods whistled out of the sky and fell into my pond with the resounding smack of a dozen King Logs.

Suit up, and we’ll find out what the hubbub is all about!

It’sThe Great White Mope!

Sarah Palin, could she be …

If Sarah is flirting, I was seduced a long time ago! For everyone who doesn’t want Romney, this is huge!

A huge horselaugh, maybe.

It’s only in the modern era that Presidential nominations have been locked up before most American voters even tuned in.

You need a helmet with a flashing red light and “Hopelessly out of touch” stenciled on it. Most “conservatives” only want to go back to 1956 or so. These yahoos want to go all the way back to 1948 and Thomas Dewey. How did that work out for you guys, by the way?

So this year, for the nation, the Republican Primary is kind of a return to older times, when all Americans counted, not just the few power brokers. The race has been a very rich blue blood from New England ( where he would not carry one state in the general election ) and a group of three, Newt, Rick and Ron scrambling for the 60 plus percent of Republicans who won’t be bought!

If that means 60% of GOPers who won’t be voting, I can live with that.

And now, a new card is thrown into the game,


Sarah Palin coming off the bench to be the choice at a divided GOP Convention! And with just a hint, she will stir the pot and drive the media nuts! Hurrah for Sarah.

In one of my most recent columns I told you about a conversation I had with a friend who had attended CPAC. He told me that Sarah had been the closing speaker, and the best. And he said, she had indicated she was not out of the game, and he even predictedshe would be the horse to mount for the General election race.


That’s the only verb that describes this possiblity. Did the Governor from Alaska out fox the pundits, the consultants, and the power elite in the GOP to dance right around all the murderous press that she would have had to endure?

Because she certainly won’t have to deal with any press should she snag the nomination. Uh huh.

Looks like this lady is not someone to play with.

I have been a Palin supporter from the beginning. For me, she was the choice by lengths. None of the rest of the candidates have her charisma, her grit, her unique character. For America, in this time of crisis and cross roads, there is only one person who can truly change the course of the ship of state! And that’s Sarah.

So is this for real?


We can’t know. She did not hint towards jumping in now. She hinted that she could be the one to pick in a brokered convention.

But this does provide a ray of hope. It provides one more reason NOT to vote for Romney. But it also provides a reason to go to the polls and vote for anybody other than Romney.

These bozos are actually “Operation Chaos”ingthemselves. God can’t love me this much.

It does provide a real reason to be involved. For the grass roots, make your choice from Newt, Rick or Ron but do it and be there on Primary Day. Don’t let Romney buy you, or win because of apathy.

America does not have one flat tire. We have four flat tires, a blown engine, no battery, and a leaky gas tank where fuel is running …and may ignite if it hits something electric or hot.

Ignite, sweet prince!

We need someone with a renewed vision of the old America. Yes, the old America. The one that put a man on the moon. The one that on Decemeber 25, 1991 won the half century Cold War liberating 500 million souls in 13 nations! We need the old America that when I was born was unquestionably the wealthiest, most powerful, most successful nation in the entire world. And we need someone who knows why all that happened.

Huge revenues from a top marginal tax rate of 90%?

Sarah proved in Alaska she could be an executive. She went against corruption in her own party…and beat the oil companies at the same time! In her third year as governor her approval ratings in Alaska were over eighty percent!!!! 80 percent!

You’re kinda glossing over what they were after that (and now), aren’t you?

So… we wait. But now, on the horizon, we see a light. So GOP grass roots, get to the polls, and pick anyone but Mitt!!!

First, I seriously doubt she would take nomination. Second, if by some very huge fluke she was nominated over her objection, I more seriously doubt that she could beat Obama.

I love her zeal, and would celebrate her as president – but, we Palin lovers are but a tiny piece of this nations citizenship.

No, not likely.

You just cannot decide at a moment’s notice decide to run for president, especially after publicly denying she would. If she decided tomorrow to do it, she would not find enough support to accomplish this.

She is either better off to stay at Fox news and give the occasional statement of conservatives ideals or run for the House or Senate.

I hear there’s a position open at MSNBC.

That has always been my position about her.

Amazing she had no time for CPAC the last four years that they’ve asked her and now she does…she’s trying to play kingmaker.

There was a movie out a few years ago with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves called the the Devil’s Advocate where Al Pacino who plays the devil says at the end “Vanity my favorite sin of all.” That’s Sarah she can’t live without the spotlight.

Well, this is discouraging.
Have the Freeperati finally wised up? Have they, at long last, learned to detect when they’re being played?

To: Leclair10

Actually during her 20 year in politics, Governor Palin earned her reputation as being a strong leader, a reformer, someone who can take on the establishment and beat them.

That, or a quitter. It was one of those two things.

Since Palin came on the national scene 3 1/2 years ago, she has helpedconservativesher bank account make historical gains.


Palin is currently playing an important role in the effort to defeat Mitt Romney.

By endorsing Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell.

Dang man, this lady’s playing with me. We had a name for girls like that in high school.

Hmmm. Just did a Google Image search on the words “prick tease” and there were 5 pics of Grifterella on the first two pages. Try it yourself.

Problem is, I keep falling for her. She’s still got me hooked and knows it. Why doesn’t she just play nice, quit teasing me (us), and jump in?

Why did she show up at CPAC this year and not the last three despite being asked repeatedly? She thought she was to big for CPAC till the last year she saw her star fading she can’t live without that once you get that taste of power you do anything to keep it.

If there is any reality to this, the convention will be a blood-fest worse than ‘64 ‘76 or ‘80.

Hell – why wait for the convention?
It’s not entertaining enough that Jim Rob jumped the gun endorsing Newtie, and that the resulting Newt/Santorum factional wars have torn Freeperville up the middle – now we have this??
Internecine wars continue after the convenient “Contnue reading” link thingy.

I can’t remember any time that your position on anything has been relevent.

If I’m wrong, I’m wrong and will admit it, bur if you ask Ansel12, she’ll have to witness I predicted 6 months before she confirmed her non-participation in running for the Republican nomination, when she was doing her bus tour and all the Palinites were all a twitter, that she wasn’t going to run.

Now, as far as relevancy goes and with all due respect, I don’t recall your name ever posting on the boards before.

What’s with the wingnuts penchant for assigning themselves Greek Philosophers’ names as handles?

It would be the end of the GOP.

Bush-worship still seems to be in serious decline here, no?

Sorry, but 2016 will be too late if Obama wins a 2nd term.

Take a look at what Obama’s done in just three short years.

Let’s do that.


I’m afraid Sarah missed her opportunity. I respect her choice not to run…but she missed her opportunity. The country needed her, and she said no.

I await mycastigation castration.

“One can only hope!”

To say I was disappointed when she decided not to run would be a big understatement. I gave to Sarah PAC,


defended her in public, and was committed to voting for her in the primary and general elections. But after all that hope, she said no.

I refuse let myself get all worked up again hoping that she’ll run. She seems to think that she can make just as big an impact as a private citizen. And while I know this goes against FreeRepublic conventional wisdowm, I don’t think Sarah has the same impact now that she’s no longer a GOP presidentil hopful. If you doubt me, just ask why the Left hasn’t been going after like they did when they thought she might run.

Sorry, but I no longer have the energy to “hope” she decides to run. I take her “no” as “no.”

Don’t you know that when a woman says No, to a “conservative” it really means Yes?
