During the 2008 campaign it was unimaginable that the Republican Party could choose someone so ignorant and inexperienced to be our Vice President as Sarah Palin. Since that time it has become obvious that senior members of the McCain campaign recognized the danger of the irresponsible pick of Sarah Palin. Steve Schmidt acknowledged that the pick could have had catastrophic consequences. Nicole Wallace explained that the Palin pick was so dangerous for the country that she couldn’t vote for McCain because of Sarah. Nicole Wallace explained that her (Palin’s) “incredible cynicism, her bitterness, her aggressive attempts to claw anyone that points out an area for her to work on… nobody wants to end up in her crosshairs…”
In Frank Bailey’s book he admitted that Palin attacked and targeted anyone who annoyed her, with the goal of destroying their reputations.
Lorenzo Bennet in Trailblazer
reported that even within the small town of Wasilla that Palin turned on the very people who helped promote her to higher positions. Six years later, the Republican Party is still being punished for their mistake of choosing Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate. She quit her job as governor five years ago, and hasn’t run for office since. Throughout the 2012 campaign she teased that she might run, but never did. She is still teasing, but now about the 2016 campaign. Hannity asked her and Gretta Van Sustern asked her, and Palin gave the same answer, that she wouldn’t rule out a run.
Yet in her speech at CPAC Palin used this opportunity to lodge a full frontal assault on the Republican Party. She referred to the “GOP Beltway boys” and slammed Chris Christie again by her reference to getting his “panties in a wad.”
The crowd at CPAC was interesting. There were only older white people seen in the crowd. There were many empty seats,
and people yawning.
As an indication of just how clueless Sarah Palin remains, she devoted a segment of her speech to the women in the room. She suggested that women were powerful and that if the men weren’t “up to the challenge” women were. The amazing thing was that the speakers chosen for the CPAC conference, and the schedule of when they would speak, was a express statement about the relative insignificance of women in the Tea Party movement.
The Republican Party seems to be attempting to ignore her. Earlier this month the Republican Party released a statement purporting to recognize Women’s History Month. They specifically mentioned Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman to be elected to both the House and the Senate, to the nation’s first Latina governor, Susana Martinez of New Mexico and the country’s youngest sitting governor, Nikki Haley of South Carolina.” Sarah Palin’s name was noticeably missing from that list.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Palin’s speech was the purported reading of the Dr. Seuss Book, Green Eggs and Ham. She intended the reading to be reminiscent of Ted Cruz’s reading on the floor of the House. However she plagiarized a poem, as highlighted by crystalwolflady from Nov. of 2013.
Here’s my personal version of the famous book, that isn’t plagarized:
Green Eggs and Ham
I do not like Sarah Palin’s scam
I do not like her, she’s such a sham.
I do not like her silly shoes.
I do not like the hate that she spews.
I do not like her frumpy hair,
Who picks the wigs she’s known to wear?
I do not like Alaska’s First Dude,
He’s a pimp, and oh so lewd.
I do not like her attacks on Obama,
We know that she is not Trigg’s mamma.
She uses people for personal gain,
Why doesn’t she pray for a brand new brain?
She’s known as a quitter, and oh so bitter,
That’s why she’ll never be a heavy hitter.
It’s time for Sarah to simply go away,
To spare us all, so we must pray.
I’ll tell the next generation,
That Sarah’s absence will be their salvation.
