Skip to comments.Deepak Chopra: Sarah Palin, My President

It will be a devastating loss if Sarah Palin peddles enough books and visits enough gun shows that she has no incentive to run for President. There would be many chances for unique moments in the White House if she won. How about Sarah on horseback, riding through the Potomac basin like Paul Revere, ringing bells like he did and shouting, The Democrats are coming! That would give folks ample warning to quickly cling to their guns and religion before the left wing snatches them away. I know that she suffered ridicule for her version of Paul Reveres ride, but from a Hollywood standpoint, she actually improved the story. Movies have soundtracks, in case anyone didnt notice, and bells are a lot more cinematic than one lantern hanging in a church steeple. Or even two. (You can hear her defense of her version on Fox News, or as my friends call it, the F Channel.)
Since Wall Streets recklessness plunged us into a national nightmare from which we are trying to awaken, its hurtful to say, as some do, that Sarah is the national nightmare. Not true. She is historically inevitable. First there was Teddy Roosevelts Bull Moose Party, now there is Sarahs Shoot Moose Party. And shes amazingly cheerful about this recession (of course, her own checkbook has fattened, but she has spread the wealth by buying a free shotgun shell reloader for every voter in Alaska).
I have some personal atonement to perform, because in the 2008 election I posted an article saying that Sarah Palin stood for our collective shadow, the pent-up bigotry, hatred, and anger that was suddenly being vented. She was Joe the Plumbers calendar girl. She was the secret hero of Alcoholics Anonymous, whose slogan is that you cant recover until you hit rock bottom. President Palin would show us that we havent remotely hit bottom yet.
The mistake was mine, though. Sarah would smile her way into the Presidency and then show pointy-head critics the error of their ways. Not that she would ask Americans to turn on one another in vicious divisiveness been there, done that. With 70% of the public so misguided as to consider her unqualified to be President, she has a bigger job to do than fomenting discord and calling anyone who disagrees with the Tea Party a socialist.
My President Palin would lead us through a national cleansing, like Chairman Maos Cultural Revolution. Nothing as violent, however, not at first. Maybe she might let school kids scribble with crayons on the paintings in the Museum of Modern Art. Ive never met a soccer mom who wanted a Picasso refrigerator magnet. Or she might close all the high-brow music schools and inaugurate the kind of music that gosh darn real Americans like: harmonica, the musical saw, and tapping your foot to the radio while driving a pickup. What more do we really need?
Andrew Jacksons inauguration in 1828 was disrupted when a mob burst into the White House, tracking in mud, breaking the china, and eventually turning the lawn into a drinking bout. Sarah has the style to make this an official event. The Jackson mob dropped so much cheese on the floor that it ruined the White House carpets, so my advice is for Sarah to skip the buffalo wings and hand out beer bongs.
The last reason I want Sarah to run for President is rooted in a famous saying from the auto industry of the Fifties: Whats good for GM is good for the country. Sarah wouldnt have bailed out GM, so you might not see the fit when it comes to helping the average worker. But heres the update: Whats good for my brand is good for the country. Sarah has proved that in spades.
What an idiotic essay! Deepak needs to chill out and smoke a little less maryjane....
I could write criticisms of Palin at length and with more wit then this nut...
He writes books? I need to try this craft if the screw can make a living.
He sounds like a bigot. Doesn’t want her to make money while he sells books. What a chump and that’s being polite.
In a perfect world this snake oil salesman Chopra should be in jail
The libtards are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pulling the ‘Briar Patch’ routine on us, folks. Krissy Matthews is doing the same with Bachmann.
>He writes books? I need to try this craft if the screw can make a living.<
Don’t bother. I had an ex-GF who was into this new age crap and she found Chopra’s was the worst made-up nonsense she came across. Judging by the article alone (and his past anti-Bush rants), I am confident to say Chopra had a ghost writer.
Add in his incoherent sentences every time he’s on CNN and you’ll know he’s full of it..
Pitiful. Some immigrants just never seem to learn the nuances of American wit. Whatever, Deepie, ol’ buddy...
“Is this guy even an American citizen?” Probably not...and every granola muncher in the world thinks he walks on water. That should tell ya something. Oh, and he’s a friend of Noprah’s. Nuff said.
Deepak, you blithering idiot. Everything the left stands for is based on proclaiming oneself a victim of one thing or another, one person or another or one group or another. I presume you believe in karma so tell me how you can believe in the culture of victimhood. Your Dharma is crap!
So just what is it again that makes Chopra special? Didn’t he used to be considered some kind of spiritual sage or something? Now he just seems to be another bitter leftwinger. And since the average bitter leftwinger in a blog comment thread writes better than he does, just what is his relevance nowadays? Maybe it’s the exotic name.
I would love to hear the trades people that have worked for him speak about him, he sounds like a guy that needs a little slapping around, and he probably got plenty of that as a creepy, arrogant kid.
What a baby, he bitches about everything. What a blithering idiot yet this guy has admirers..who the hell thinks this guy is intelligent..he sounds like a buffoon
Isn’t this the clown that writes artsy-fartsy “books” for artsy-fartsy potheads?
And unbelievably childish.
If young Master Deepak were in second grade (which is where his intellect appears to have arrested), I would swear he has a heartsick crush on Sarah.
Oh ha ha ha this was so funny, NOT. They hate that she is a Christian, and the libs haven’t a clue about what it means to understand right and wrong.
Please read the column, again.
Deepak apparently has some issues with the middle-class. The way he’s talking, you’d think that Sarah Palin would have Gangster Rappers over to the White House or sumthin’...
