The Obama Dozen by Sarah Palin

- or- Everything I Really Needed to Know About Defeating Obama I Learned from Sarah Palin


With the current all-male Republican circle-jerk doomed to repeat itself until at least June like some gay orgy in a locker room, it is good we have Barack Obama deciding to run against Sarah Palin in the meantime. Good because it gives Sarah Palin an opportunity to remind us of the real goal: kicking this walking, talking, preening, phony disaster out of the White House and off Air Force One. Unlike Mitt, Newt, Rick, and Ron, Sarah does not take her eye off the message. Indeed she supplied everyone a couple of days ago with the 12 main talking points that seem to have gone right out of the pointed little heads of the current candidates and their supporters.

What are The Palin Points? Let’s review:
Just off the top of my head, a few of these concerning issues include:

  1. a debt crisis that has us hurtling towards a Greek-style collapse,
  2. entitlement programs going bankrupt,
  3. a credit downgrade for the first time in our history,
  4. a government takeover of the health care industry that makes care more expensive and puts a rationing panel of faceless bureaucrats between you and your doctor (aka a “death panel”),
  5. $4 and $5 gas at the pump exacerbated by an anti-drilling agenda that rejects good paying energy sector jobs and makes us more dependent on dangerous foreign regimes,
  6. a war in Afghanistan that seems unfocused and unending,
  7. a global presidential apology tour that’s made us look feeble and ridiculous,
  8. a housing market in the tank,
  9. the longest streak of high unemployment since World War II,
    private-sector job creators and industry strangled by burdensome regulations and an out-of-control Obama EPA,
  10. an attack on the Constitutional protection of religious liberty,
    an attack on private industry in right-to-work states,
  11. crony capitalism run amok in an administration in bed with their favored cronies to the detriment of genuine free market capitalism,
    green energy pay-to-play kickbacks to Obama campaign donors, and
  12. a Justice Department still stonewalling on a bungled operation that armed violent Mexican drug lords and led to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people.
I’m sure I missed a few things, but the list is just for starters.

One would hope that, at some point, the boys in the locker room can quite snapping towels on each other’s butts long enough to get back on Palin's message. But as Lyndon Johnson once said, “I don’t want to hold out any hopes for you I don’t hold out for myself.”

I said it before: Sarah should have jumped the gun and given the Presidential race a try, for tryin's sake.

But there's something else you all need to know: Bristol's got a blog, at Patheos. Go check it out. And give her some kudos.

One would hope that the towel butt snapping is taking place prior to completion of the circle jerking.

If she had run, she woulda won.

Are the powers that be in the RNC are going to let Sarah Palin give the keynote speech?

Just imagine that the whole convention is feeling suicidal because the presumptive nominee has turned out to be a dud that is probably going to do a McCain and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and the others left in the game have proven themselves bona fide clowns.

And there is Obama, vulnerable as hell, and our damn gun isn't loaded.

Now imagine Sarah steps up to the mike and proceeds to Belt. It. Right. Out. Of. The. Park., winding up with a shout "I am Breitbart!" And then the chanting begins: "Pick Up the Torch!" "Pick Up the Torch!" "Pick Up the Torch!". And they will not let her leave the stage, and they will not stop.

And somebody in the crowd throws down their Mittens sign, immediately followed by several hundred others.

Could happen.

This post says it all, pretty much. I'm trying to remain optimistic in the teeth of everything but Why does the Republican party seem so washed out? Tying to turn on a dime after years of corruption, of going along at the federal trough? They can't field appealing candidates. Did they learn anything from McCain? Every time Romney opens his mouth he lets you know how thoroughly he has avoided English literature, Shakespeare, the Bible, etc. His language sounds like something picked up at a swap meet. Gengrich picked up a cool million as certified historian for Fanny Mae & Freddie Mac. We don't have any leadership. Uggh, muddle through...

Sarah Palin will jump in during the brokered Convention. If not, then maybe sooner than later. Not too late for her. As she said a year ago the 2012 Election cycle will be the most unconventionable Election cycle in the history of the United States.
