Criticism that would make most of us crawl in bed with some Essie nail polish and a flashlight.
What is that secret you ask?
One simple little word that would make a terrific name for a MAC lipstick color…Success!
Kill em with kindness is the old girl’s way of dealing with adversaries.
Murder them with success is the new and improved way.
No one tromped the critics on the left or right better than Sarah the RINO killing Palinator. One endorsement from Palin Power could put you on the political map- especially if you are a true conservative woman.
Just ask Christine O’Donnell (R-DE) or Nikki Haley (R-SC).
The Palinator takes a main stream media beating and keeps on ticking. But only very recently would everyone come to respect and possibly fear the woman they once referred to as a pig with lipstick.
On November 4th, 2008, the entire nation including yours truly did not exactly know what would happen to the woman who almost was the United States Vice President.
Well some of us did not know but others….
“Take your all of your whores back home John Mc-lame- especially Sarah Palin!” yelled a young twenty-something man, lacking in couth and deodorant . The setting was a medium north side café in Chicago. I was eating a corned beef and Swiss sandwich which was normally my favorite but the memory of the night before were still plaguing my brain.
The Obamabots were dancing in the streets and judging from the number of “walk of shamers “ I espied Wednesday morning, they had been dancing in the sheets as well. Nothing like Kool Aid filled diaphragms to quench your political thirst. Please do not pro-create Obamabots, please after Obama gets done with us, there won’t be enough of other people’s money for you liberals to spend.
How could America be sooooo stupid?
Numb. Just numb. That is the only way I can describe my feelings on that day. Let’s not even get into the whole Afrocity eight years previous to that day would have been dancing over a Democrat presidential win. Oh, God this means at least four years with the Hope and Change BS and historic moment hype.
How will I get through this…I am too old to teach English in Japan.
Pinch me please.
Is it just my imagination or was the DNC just hijacked by Jolt Cola sucking millennials, women–oops I am sorry- feminists– who love being kicked in the butt by donkeys, nutty bomb making professors and aging hippies suffering from white guilt?
Is this a nightmare?
Obama won fair and… well nevermind.
The night before was a blur but it did happen.
Hazy images of John McCain saying he lost came to my recall center. I remembered Sarah that night too.
As she stood next to her older and battered running mate, Sarah seemed sad and compassionate. McCain was about to be done- at least on the executive branch front. He gave his concession speech- which was one of the best and most gracious presidential election concession speeches I have ever heard in my lifetime. There was no doubt that Sarah’s eyes had that glassy fighting back tears appearance- something had quieted her spirit – but it was to be only for a moment.
Then John McCain gave the pitbull with lipstick a well deserved bone:
From John McCain’s Concession Speech – November 4, 2008
I am also — I am also, of course, very thankful to Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the best campaigners I’ve ever seen … one of the best campaigners I have ever seen, and an impressive new voice in our party for reform and the principles that have always been our greatest strength … her husband, Todd, and their five beautiful children … for their tireless dedication to our cause, and the courage and grace they showed in the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign.
We can all look forward with great interest to her future service to Alaska, the Republican Party and our country.
After several more paragraphs, McCain concluded his speech. I watched Sarah Palin wave her hand at the Arizona crowd and disappear. Where is she going ? She made politics exciting again- now she is leaving. Was McCain correct in his assessment of the woman from Alaska? Would she really want to come back after what the media did to her? Maybe a better question would be would they let Sarah come back?
“God I was so sick of hearing Palin’s annoying voice,” said one woman watching the cafe television. “She was so…provincial…and stupid. What a dumb woman.”
Laughter from her booth mates. They were annoying me on so many punishable by death levels. Mustard on fries, greasy hair and leftover Obama paraphernalia on their coats. And very near the end when they went to the cashier to pay for their food, one enlightened idiot declared: “Power to the socialists. Obama rules Fuck yeah!”
It was gonna be a long, long four years.
But I was being selfish. If it was bad for me, what was Sarah Palin going through? As if having to give up a killer RNC paid for wardrobe was agonizing enough for any woman (Oh those red peep-toe Biden debate shoes- be merciful and let her keep those.)
…Sarah was accused of serving as spare parts Hillary Clinton- estrogen substitute- RNC ticket fluff who was not intellectually grounded enough to read magazines like Ms. and Mother Jones (snicker). Palin’s family was also overwhelmingly scrutinized and skewered with no mercy. She would have to be crazy to want to ever leave Alaska again.
But really I could not tell what Sarah Palin was thinking.
Now, nearly two years later…I know exactly what Sarah was thinking.
The Palinator within her, was struck by the limitations of her running mate and the Republican establishment.
She took meticulous mental notes on the inside of her mind’s palm.
Like a digital screen words were darting across her field of vision. Before she walked off the stage with John McCain, she scanned the crowd and said to herself in true Palinator fashion:
I’LL BE BACK.
From this article in the NY Daily News:
Sarah Palin becomes GOP power broker, endorses winning Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell
BY Aliyah ShahidSeptember 15th, 2010
One thing has become abundantly clear from Tuesday night’s primaries: Sarah Palin’s endorsements matter.
Palin and Tea Party-backed conservative Christine O’Donnell pulled off a stunning upset over nine-term Rep. Mike Castle in the Republican Senate primary in Delaware 53% to 47%.
O’Donnell gave a nod to the former Alaska governor during her victory speech on Tuesday night.
“Thank you, Gov. Palin, for your endorsement,” the Tea Party candidate said. “Because she got behind us war-weary folks, and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it.”
O’Donnell wasn’t Palin’s only win on Tuesday. In Wisconsin, Palin-backed Sean Duffy — an ex-district attorney and castmate in MTV’s “The Real World” — handily won the Republican primary Tuesday for a U.S. House seat.
And in New York, Michael Grimm defeated his opponent in the Republican primary for a House seat representing Staten Island. And in New Hampshire’s Republican Senate primary, Kelly Ayotte, the state’s attorney general (who is backed by Palin) narrowly won against Tea Party backed Ovide Lamontagne in a multi-candidate race.
And then there are other winning candidates, particularly in the Tea Party, that Palin has endorsed this election season — demonstrating her ability to catapult nobodies into virtual stardom. There’s Joe Miller in Alaska, Rand Paul in Kentucky, and Nikki Haley in South Carolina…
With her decision to step down as Alaska’s leave no caribou behind governor, Sarah exchanged her hunting book for Facebook and a Fox News commentator gig. She came back armed with extended wear lipstick to kick some serious RINO butt and get the Republican party back to sowing its conservative oats again.
Kill em’ with success- it works.
Some of Palin’s successes are other’s headaches. The O’Donnell victory in Deleware challenges the Republicans to come to terms with contradictions in their own party. Sarah is anti-establishment no matter what side of the political spectrum you are on. Yesterday on the O’Reilly Factor, Sarah sat quietly through one of Bill’s mini-lectures. If you recall the events following Christine O’Donnell’s win, Karl Rove- also known as “The Architect” among the GOP was not too happy about what the Tea Party was building in Delaware. He made that very clear on the Hannity show Tuesday night when he delivered what probably was one of the more “skeptical” assessments of O’Donnell. By mid-morning Wednesday, there were calls out for Rove’s hide. OReilly being O’Reilly just had to push Sarah on the Rove issue but she quickly dismissed Bill-O’s argument:
Boy she dropped kicked that argument like O-Ren Ishii cut off Boss Tanaka’s head in Kill Bill Volume I
Now if any of you RINO Republicans has anything to say…Now is the efffing time!!!
Yep, Sarah said she will be back and like a good politician she kept her promise to us and ironically John McCain who she also helped in his own Arizona senatorial re- election.
And the mainstream media said Michelle Obama would be the one to watch…
Well possibly so…That is if watching vegetables grow in the White House garden is more your cup of feminist speed… Afrocity prefers to skip the arugula and take her tea with two lumps of Palinator- you betcha!
