Palinís star has crashed and burned (Again? LOL)
The Voice ^ | May 17, 2013 | Matthew Fahr, Voice Columnist

Posted on 05/17/2013 6:11:53 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

It is hard to admit that one of the most cartoonish and self-aggrandizing figures in recent political memory actually could have been a contender at one time, but I am now willing to cede that point.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin actually could have been, at the very least, a respected political figure over the course of the last decade, but she has squandered any capital or potential she may have had by being a rudderless buffoon.

The only reason this comes to light again is because Palin is polling ahead of two other candidates for a potential open Senate seat in 2014.

Mind you this was a sample of 379 Alaska Republicans taken during the first week of this month, but the prospect of Palin being a member of the Senate for six years is enough to make one consider a move to Nova Scotia.

At one time Palin was a somewhat savvy, fairly competent Governor of Alaska. What made her stand out and got her on the political map was facing down oil and natural gas conglomerates in her home state and beating them.

In Alaska, beating that corporate duo is one step short of taking control of a city back from the mob. Oil taxes supply almost 90 percent of the general revenue in the state, so you know oil companies have what can conservatively be called a passing interest in how government is run.

The governor, who would soon become more famous for being geographically challenged and for her looks, somehow passed a tax increase on oil revenue and while other states floundered, Alaska built up a $12 billion surplus.

But 18 months before the end of her first term and only nine months after she helped torpedo John McCain’s Presidential aspirations....

I hope Sarah runs for and wins the Senate seat!

She will bring a breath of FResh air to Washington, DC and to the national dialogue.

RUN! SARAH! RUN!

The first sentence refers to Sheila Jackson Lee. Then the author jumps to Sarah Palin.

...

She’s like the ex-girlfriend they’re SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about — really, it’s O-ver — but they just can’t stop talking about her.

Liberal: Ha, ha ... Sarah who? She’s over, she’s toast, a future Trivial Pursuit answer, nothing more.

Normal person: Whatever. How about the North Korean missiles?

Liberal: Can you believe she just resigned the governorship like that? What a quitter!

Normal person: Speaking of quitting, how’s work?

Liberal: Did you hear she might get a TV show? There’s no way Sarah Palin’s getting a TV show! No way! I can’t believe stupid Sarah Palin could get her own stupid TV show now. Well, I’m sure not gonna watch it — that’s for sure!

Normal person: Have you seen all the Michael Jackson coverage on TV?

Liberal: How does she think she can run for president in 2012 if she can’t finish her term as governor of a Podunk state? She’s finished.

Normal person: OK, then! You won’t have to vote for her.

Liberal: I was never going to vote for her! But now I’m not going to vote for her twice. And I will never watch her TV show. I am so over her.

What an ignorant slut Fahrt man is. I didn't vote for McCain in 2008 but I did vote for Palin. Juan was only along for the ride but even Sarah couldn't pull his chestnuts out of the fire.

Actually Palin and Rush and Cruz and others like Beck are much bolstered by recent events. What we’re hearing about is what they have been warning about. In fact they would have been laughed at for suggesting that the IRS would target the tea party...whoever they are.

If she is so ‘broken’ then why do they all waste time on her? You would think she was elected to some office already. She has more guts than half the repubs in office right now. She will make a great senator ...

That’s “Forest” not Sarah.

Back to my old saying, I was a big fan until she helped bail out that stinking RINO POS McCain in the 2010 Zona primary.

And no more of this, “She owed him” BS. He should be gone and JD Haworth should be in. The Tea Party keeps getting the shaft from the Republican Party.

Bleep you Sarah.

after she helped torpedo John McCain’s Presidential aspirations

OK, he shows his cluelessness right there. SARAH SAVED McCAIN's BUTT! He was on-track to make McGovern look like he lost in a squeaker. I worked the election GOTV effort and there were no volunteers until the day after the announcement and her speech. People flooded in, saying "I'm here for Sarah." And this is a conservative county. McCain's defeat would have been epic if not for Sarah Palin. A clue is far away from Mr. Fahr

I have found that the use of the word "buffoon" is almost completely in the liberal domain.

Very rarely do you hear conservatives use it.

This was a note put on my ex-boss's car in Boston's South End when they saw a bumper sticker on his car back in 2004 and they broke both of his windshield wipers off:
