Al Gore and Sarah Palin: that’s like eating strawberry ice cream with dill pickles!
Of Course Sarah still has influence.....
Tell you what, in just a little while, an official FreeRepublic PDSer will make some kind of snarky remark against her here for no reason other than that she’s Sarah Palin. They troll for her name in the headlines
You're correct on both counts.
That’s half of the reason I post them.
Holy **** Kyle Bass and Roubini are going to be their. This is big time, they are familiar names to many here, via Zero Hedge and Glenn Beck...
I Know! I figured you out a while back....you love to draw out the Palin haters here who are actually a small group of about 30-40 active members but make a lot of noise with their hate.
I would suspect that Sarah will dill more than his pickle before the evening is over. Should be interesting.
Hahahaha! She drives you guys nuts!
Speak and it shall be done!
Susch a meaningless politico as Sarah P sure draws the venom.
She’s been meaningless since October, right?
No one wants to hear what she has to say, except for, say, all of rural, working, God-fearing, gun-owning freedom loving America.
She needs to contact BURT RUTAN and read his reseach or even go meet him on the work he has done to prove Global Warming is a bleeping farce...
Bingo...TomServo just checked in (Pissant Jr.)
Soon all the others will claim she’s stealing their spotlight.
This one’s for you.
BINGO! AND they’re still PO’d that her family wasn’t completely bankrupted financially by all the lies and innuendo. Instead she successfully bounced back...very nicely, and still has better ideas than the opposition!
GORE: A moose bit my sister.
PALIN: I bit the moose, after shooting it, dressing it out, and grilling it to medium rare. It was good!
GORE: (completely shocked by what he just heard is totally speechless, even for the windbag that he is).
PALIN: Gore, you are such a sissy, get over it.
Sarah has to feed her family. I am sure there is a good speaking fee there...
I hope she shoots a polar bear and cuts the head off and hands it to AlGore
Palin and Bass at the same event: whoa. I am going to have to watch the videos of this conference.
IF ya find a link keep me posted. Used to be a time when things like this were on CNBC before it became OBamaGEMSLSDCNBC...Dang Shame they don't anymore...
