Cunning Sarah Palin gives boost to Newt Gingrich (Mild Barf Alert)
The Boston Herald ^ | January 19, 2012 | Margery Eagan

You’ve got to admire Sarah Palin’s cunning — even if your eardrums can’t take her squeal.

If Newt Gingrich wins Saturday in South Carolina, she can claim total credit. She just endorsed him — sort of.

If he even gets close — and he’s closer to Mitt Romney in two new polls — she can point to her last-minute vote of confidence. “If I had to vote in South Carolina,” she told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday, “in order to keep things going, I would vote for Newt.”

If things don’t go well, hey, she’s got lots of wiggle room.

She didn’t endorse him. She just said she’d vote for Newt on Saturday so the race doesn’t end now. “Iron sharpens iron, steel sharpens steel,” she said, which I guess means the GOP-ers need to sharpen up so the media and those “on the left” can’t anoint Mitt Romney.

I’ve never gotten that thinking. Oba-mites would surely prefer Newt or Rick Santorum to Romney and all his harking back to a simpler, white picket fence America.

But in any case, Newt just tweeted her words to millions and says she’s in his cabinet, and just when you thought Sarah and Todd — who did endorse Newt — were fading away, she’s back, a possible kingmaker!

What’s so clear is that she can’t stomach Mitt, who just said collecting $374,327 in speaking fees in a year is “not very much.”

Maybe you’ve seen the embarrassing picture of Mitt addressing a teeny-tiny crowd in Florence, S.C.

That would never happen to megawatt Sarah, who’s still adored by millions even after clubbing halibut to death on her weird TV show.

With Hannity on Tuesday, she gushed over Rick Perry for showing up at Monday’s debate with “Texas chili and some Dr. Pepper.” She said Santorum had opponents “on the ropes” and compared Newt to “South Carolina’s own Smokin’ Joe Frazier.”

Here’s what Mitt said Monday: “When I get invited, I’m delighted to be able to go hunting.”

Delighted?

No wonder 2 percent of Americans think Mitt’s real first name is “Mittens.”

When Hannity finally asked, “Would you be against Gov. Romney being the nominee?” Sarah couldn’t even say Mitt’s name.

She referred to him obliquely, and dismissively, as “today’s front-runner who has all the campaign cash” and “the more moderate candidate.”

Then she added, “I don’t believe that he with the most money actually has to be the one who wins.”

Ouch.

Mama grizzly gores Mittens.

But even if her faux endorsement helps Newt, goofball Mitt still has the nomination. Then Sarah fades away again, for good.

Wow, like, it's SO hard to spot one of Hillary's bitches.

And every one of the stupid cows actually believes she's special to Hillary.

Now THAT is funny!

Unless they’re a Saudi “married” to a disgraced former congressman, they’re not very “special” to her at all.

Okay, I’m outed, vet. Were you thinking about me? (Just kidding.) Guess I could have written this column, but I would have credited Sarah, for sitting on her endorsement to protect Newt from the fallout nationally if she had declared her endorsment for him. It would have hurt him in national polls possibly, and frankly people have made up their mind on their candidate anyway. She forever pleases those whom she pleases, and irritates endlessly those who are not enthralled, so her endorsement is always going to be a wash, along with everything she says is a wash, because so many are divided about her relevance.

Just had to respond. Cheers to you though, as always. Rita

I heard today that Sarah Palin had been offered $4mil to pose nude in Playboy. Michelle Obama also received an offer to pose nude,...by National Geographic for $50 (and two large bottles of Orange Crush)...

How bizzarre, getting fish fresh from its natural environment - aren't those the things that are supposed to come wrapped in cellophane in the supermarket?

“Margery Eagan: You’ve got to admire Sarah Palin’s cunning — even if your eardrums can’t take her squeal.”

Talk about an utter lack of self-awareness.

Margery does a morning drive show on the radio in Boston. Her voice makes nails on a chalkboard soothing, her laugh (a fake, forced cackle) is enough to make you turn the dial and listen to rap music. She and her cohost, Jim Braude, the prototypical Massachusetts liberal democratic smartass, constantly talk over each other.

Someone suggested that the reason Boston traffic is so awful is that so many accidents were caused by people listening to Margery and Jim driving into ditches and bridge abutments just to make them stop talking.

I hope, I hope, I hope, squeals the cunning runt.

I love it when the lefty's use my dyslexic ploy of cunning runt when they refer to Sarah.

They so hate and fear Sarah, that it is impossible for them to be rational whenever she is even mentioned.
