Skip to comments.Ellen Goodman: Palin the pretender

My guess is that she really doesn't know what she wants, or who she really is.
It's probably dangerous to admit to a moment of empathy. I'll either get disqualified from ever becoming being a Supreme Court justice or asked to turn in my press card. But after watching reruns of Gov. Sarah Palin's resignation from the governorship, after hearing every grammatically challenged sentence and inconsistent paragraph dissected by some talk show host, I started to (blush) feel her pain.
There was the frozen smile, the vulnerability, the odd grab bag of unfiltered, unedited, unintelligible un-reasons scattered across the lawn. Ms. Palin quit to avoid being a quitter. She cut and run as an act of self-sacrifice. She left her job to serve her country.
It wasn't like watching a car wreck. It was like watching a midlife meltdown. It was seeing her self-image as a strong, confident, ambitious woman shaken to the core. All that was holding her together was chewing gum, family and a little righteous anger.
What had happened to Sarah the Barracuda? The pit bull with lipstick?
The mother of five, moose killer and marathoner who juggled a BlackBerry and a breast pump?
Ten months ago, when John McCain picked her as his running mate, it was like starting a middle-school basketball star in the WNBA. No, the NBA.
As governor, she once remarked about an opponent's ability to spout off facts and figures, "Does any of this really matter?" As running mate, a McCain aide said, she doesn't even know what she doesn't know.
I was among those who harbored the "elitist" belief that a vice presidential candidate should know as much about public policy as, say, Katie Couric.(continued)

Absolutely, those working-Joe husbands are supposed to be no help with childcare or around the house, which is why liberal women go for effete men. Except effete men are nothing compared to Todd in supporting his wife and kids.
Painfully (for them) evident that they are so envious of Sarah they can’t stand their menopausal selves.
Libtard women are so jealous of Sarah they will say almost anything. Look in a mirror you Shrews.
I still remember old Ellen trashing Reagan as an idiot and a boob who would eventually take time off from his nap to blow up the world. She’s a nasty one.
I think she’s been using the pseudonym “Kathleen Parker” for awhile, but decided to take back her old name back because her column started getting cancelled. :D
Who's got the frozen smile Ellen?
I guess they're reached the point where they must have some kind of “derangement syndrome” to provide context to their lives.
Who would pay any arrention to Goodman except Stalin and he’s dead.
She looks like Dr. Joyce Brothers.
She's going to whip the crap out of libtard butt and RINO butt... Can it get any more simple than that! Dumbass!!!
Hehe, like that.
Another mad rant from a looney liberal feminist.
LOL, Palin has them worried! Haven’t seen such sustained attacks since the election. Since 53% of Ameriacans now feel Palin is unfairly attacked, its great ... backlash. We’ll be soon seeing 60%, and at that level, she could win an election on that alone!
These poor dears just can’t help themselves. There, there.
Why even post this sickening leftist crap?
Hey, anyone else notice how so many of these bottom-heavy, leftist womyn have that crazy, witch-looking, unkempt hair? No wonder they're such a miserable, unsatisfied lot -- no man would desire being within 50 miles of "striking distance" from such nasty, asexual beings.
On the other hand, Sarah certainly makes the mind wander. . . !
“It wasn’t like watching a car wreck. It was like watching a midlife meltdown. It was seeing her self-image as a strong, confident, ambitious woman shaken to the core. All that was holding her together was chewing gum, family and a little righteous anger.”
Does she really believe that. Either completely stupid or completely dishonest. Whichever, she fits the stereotypical feminist ranter profile - never let the facts get in the way of your attacks.
My guess is Ellen doesn’t think very well.
Same old worn out liberal attacks; conservatives are dumb.
Goodman has jumped the shark. She’s become irrelevant.
Bashing Ms.Palin is proof that the Goodman is a bitter
aging leftist hag.
I feel guilty. And selfish.
All these mad ranting women attacking Palin.
Yet i like it. Sorry. I think they are just digging their own graves, building up Palin, making fools of themselves and any destroying any pretense that the current feminist movement supports women generally and is just built on hypocrisy and lies.
She has her way. Her people rule. They steal close elections. Their judges overturn votes of the people. They can destroy any interloper they want, along with their families and children, while saying they should all be assaulted. They write stories about Obama’s basketball games, his wife's glamorous armpits and their children's dog.
Ronald Reagan and Jesse Helms are dead. She is living in contemporary paradise. Everything she has ever wanted and written about in thirty years of witch-scribble has actually happened. Our country is in ruins. This is as good as it gets for Madame Bolshevik.
Why isn't she happy?
No, neither do I.
Actually someone on this thread thought it looked like this:
John Wayne in Rio Bravo. Not a quitter, no meltdown.
