Vanity — Who I Suspect Will Be Trump’s Choice for Republican VP
July 14, 2016 | Satin Doll

Posted on ‎7‎/‎14‎/‎2016‎ ‎2‎:‎01‎:‎05‎ ‎PM by SatinDoll

No, I do not believe Trump’s choice will be Gov. Pence of Indiana. Nor Newt, nor Christie — not even a man. Yes, I do believe the proposed VP will be a woman.

I suspect that Trump’s VP running mate will be ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Why? Well, she is a natural born citizen, a real conservative, and she is ferocious contra liberals/progressives. In addition, she isn’t on the list of speakers for the Cleveland Convention and she has been silent of late. She has had lots of experience in dealing with those demons from Hell (the MSM) and her nomination will literally terrify the GOPee boys club.

But why??
To: SatinDoll

Sarah’s delivery has become too shrill and disjointed.
When she writes her opinions down on Facebook, it’s a totally different story, it’s the other Sarah, who is not caught up in performing for or reacting to the cameras.

You said it well, as to delivery “shrill and disjointed”. The only word I could think of was “hysterical”, which was not an accurate descriptor.

It all depends if she can get her family under control, make sure no one is on probation for fighting in bars, no reality tv show conflicts, is not scheduled for Dancing with the Stars, and Kate plus her Eight is going to vote.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – palin and simple edition

Good morning, everyone!

In case you were wondering (and even if you weren’t), my absence last week was due to my house being partially under water after the historic Dallas floods of May 23rd-24th. Let’s just say that a house full of 90db apiece blowers (7 of them) and loss of access to my PC for a week wasn’t conducive to doing posts (or much of anything else) , and my anxiety / borderline hysteria about spending our retirement savings on “like it never happened” to try and prevent black mold – and repairs – and  recarpeting  3/4 of the house –  didn’t help much.

OK – so what do we have this week?

Sarah Palin On Trump VP Shortlist?
Townhall.com ^ | May 15, 2016 | Christine Rousselle

Posted on 5/16/2016, 1:22:42 PM by Maceman

Ben Carson–who the Washington Post called the both best and worst campaign surrogate of all time–revealed that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, among many others, is on Donald Trump’s shortlist for potential running mates.

[…]He had just explained to the reporter riding along that he wanted no role in a Trump administration when news arrived of a new poll naming him as the best liked of a list of potential running mates. “Who else was on the list?” he asked quietly, maintaining his usual inscrutable calm. The most favorably regarded contenders after himself, he was told, were John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Chris Christie. “Those are all people on our list,” he said. “Well, not you,” Candy reminded him sharply.

Same here. I stopped taking Sarah Palin seriously when it became clear that she was more interested in being a celebrity and showcasing her family on reality TV than she was in policy. Add to that her fingernails on a chalkboard voice that makes Hillary’s shrill shrieking sound almost lyrical by comparison, and we’re left with a walking punchline rather than a VP pick.

Sarah Palin Endorses Donald Trump, Rallying Conservatives
New York Times ^ | 01/19/2016 | By MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on ‎1‎/‎19‎/‎2016‎ ‎3‎:‎18‎:‎14‎ ‎PM by SeekAndFind

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, will endorse Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, officials with his campaign confirmed. The endorsement provides Mr. Trump with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.

If you’ve noticed, at Free Republic the shine has worn off Our Sarah’s star just a little bit in the past few years.  With Grifterella’s trailer trash antics, her relentless money-grubbing, constant pleas for attention, and in general justifying everything everyone but Freepers always saw in her – the bloom is off the rose.

Or so it seems to me.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – two of a perfect pair edition

Good morning, all!   Since the Elections are upon us, we need to examine the the yin and yang, the Jagger and Richards, the Pete and Repeat of the Freeperatis’ political desires – Jeb and Our Sarah!

Jeb won the coin toss (if nothing else), so we’ll start out with Bushed!

Why Jeb Bush should run for president

Run, Jeb, run.

I mean it, despite two powerful arguments against a presidential run by Jeb Bush — one specific to the former Florida governor, one more generic.

To: Pearls Before Swine

The contest will be between Romney and Bush. That would be good for Conservatives in the primaries as the field of conservatives won’t be eliminating each other while the lefty gope stands in the wings waiting to roll over the later primaries as the only one left standing. I suspect, though, that the contest will be in the RNC et al and will be decided before the primaries. There will be no visible strife. It will all be done with money flows out of sight.

Game Change Or, Now I Want To Claw My Eyeballs Out

We had a hockey game Saturday night and so we DVR’d “Game Change” and I’m just now watching it.

Lots has been written about it, mostly of the “I never thought I’d feel sorry for Sarah Palin” variety. I don’t feel sorry for her. I’m appalled, outraged and pissed off all over again! What the hell? The absolutelast emotion I feel for anyone involved in this debacle is sympathy. Holy shit, this woman didn’t know the basics of contemporary history, let alone the nuances of American foreign policy.

What really gets me is not that the McCain campaign foisted someome so unfamiliar with basic current affairs onto the national stage, but that she was made governor of the state of Alaska in the first place. How the hell did that even happen? I can see the McCain campaign deciding, “well, she’s governor of Alaska, so surely she’seducated, right? She can add two plus two, right?” They completely underestimated the vast dumbing-down of America that has occurred over the past 30 years.

And therein lies our problem. I look at the idiots in Tennessee’s state government and I see crackpots like Rep. Rick Womick, last seen peddlingJohn Birch Society black helicopter conspiracy theories in our state legislature. Somehow these clueless, uninformed blockheads become mayors and then state representatives and state senators and then governors, and before you know it, some desperate fuck decides to put them on a national ticket because it needs some sex appeal. And God help us if next time they get elected. That scares the crap out of me.

I realize this isn’t any earth-shattering revelation, but I feel like until we start expecting better from ourselves we’re not going to get anything better from our political leadership. This fish is rotting from the tail up.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Palin Announces Candidacy edition

Well, faithful friends, the moment we have all been waiting for is here – let’s suit up and hit the airlock, cos the Freeperati are buzzing like an electric razor on its last legs.

Sarah Palin to Announce Today on Bob&Mark Show?
HillBuzz ^ | Sept 16, 2011 | HillBuzz

“The Bob & Mark Show” broadcasts out of Anchorage, Alaska, with hosts Bob and Mark on KWHL.[Click here for a link to their site, where you can listen to the broadcast LIVE! ] In the final episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC — which Governor Palin herself produced and had complete creative control over — the Governor promised to let Bob and Mark know, on the air, when she decides to run for president. Since the Governor personally chose to have that bit included in the episode, there has to be a reason for this. “The Bob and Mark Show” broadcasts Monday through Friday.

She should probably wait a few days and let the tabloid book about her draw some more heat.

But then Friday’s are always good for good news. Screw up the Journalists weekend and make them cover you’re news cycle. Then she’ll be the talk of all the talking heads on Sunday.

I don’t buy it. If she were goingh to annonce, ashe’d certainly want to do so in a more splashy wat than on a dinky radio show. (No offense meant to the show.) but wouldn’t she at least pick Rusd Limbaugh’/s show, if not calling yogether a full media scrum of all the Network and cable news channels?

Quite the contrary.

My understanding has been, Palin long ago stated if she does announce, it will be on that very show.

Do you really doubt if she were to call up all the news media, foreign and domestic, and say she was making a big announcement in 24 hrs at (X) place, that every single one of them wouldn’t have a news team there at the ready? Ahead of time, to get the best position they could?

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Observer comments – Glenn Beck on drugs edition!

Pardon me for getting out of my box here, but this is too good not to share.

Sarah Palin has the press and the media unhinged over her probable primary run

Yesterday, the Oregonian featured an editorial and excellent hit piece called, ” A prediction for 2012:Sarah Palin will toss her hat into the ring.” The article written by featured columnist, Todd Huffman, a Eugene, Oregon pediatrician was entertaining to say the least.

Sadly for Dr. Huffman, virtually everything he wrote about Governor Palin cannot be factually proven.

Sadly for you, virtually everything you write can never be not said to have literacy

Huffman is quite the dilettante writing on a plethora of topics.

Fortunately, he doesn’t use words like “dilettante” in public places, for that would be too pretentious by half, n’est ce pas?

When he veers to his obsession,

…or to avoid me driving the wrong way on the freeway…

the need to assassinate the character, background and education of Sara Palin perhaps his time would be better spent in his office taking care of sore throats and ear aches.

Perhaps your time would be better spent reading “The Elements Of Style”, and less time spent trying to rip off Victor Davis Hansonopolis

It’s probably an excellent idea toclick on this link to understand his take on the Governor.

He is not atypical of today’s journalists whom operate with the following code:

If you use one more double negative, I’m not going to atypically feed you to your own dog.

Anyway, after ten more paragraphs of trying too hard to impress, we get to the comments.

They’re mostly every teabagger trope in existance, but then there’s this:

Frumpy Stilson 12 hours ago


Jack, how do you feel about Glenn Beck? I think he is really the most God fearing of all men today. He is terrified of him and I truly think he can talk some sense in to the rest of the country. What do you think?Or is the LDS trip that we are on as a nation too far gone. Can we take a spiritual shot of methadone and cure ourselves to regain control of the constitution?

My reply:

  • Tommy T 12 hours ago


    “the LDS trip”

    Unintentional irony award for this one.

Then I looked at Frumpy’s next post:

Frumpy Stilson 10 hours ago


My point exactly! In her own words, Sarah refuses to ” swim downstream with the dead fish” And do you know what really drives Satan’s Liberal Marxists out of their minds, the fact that nobody dribbles down court and keeps their eye on the basket like Sarah.

Oops – have I been hornswoggled?

Frumpy Stilson 9 hours ago

I saw her new program on TV and I said to myself. Is there anything this girl can’t do? No seriously. She is one of the few people that I would let in to my bunker. When the food insurance rations started to run low, she would lead the first hunting party out in to the forbidden zone. When it was time to plant the survival seeds in the spring, you know she would pitch in. I just think she’s great.

A kiindred spirit! And much better at spoofing teabagger “style”.

I am abashed. – nay, mortified. My only excuse is that Frumpy’s parody was too close to the original wingnut source material.

As I’ve observed before, it’s sometimes impossible to parody these nutcases. I suppose that the grandiloquent and bombastically verbose wordplay of the article’s author didn’t cause me to not be stunned into submission.
