If there was any self awareness among those on the right they’d be rightly embarrassed by the state of their so-called leadership. That’s a big if. The lack of self awareness is fairly well documented. The entire wingnut base is either afraid to look in the mirror or damned proud of their insipid emptiness.

The first dose of this vapid wasteland of ideas came in the form of a Governor from Alaska who had a sly little wink and a folksy manner that endeared her to masses of American zombies who were lobotomized by years of listening to a soulless talker with a golden mic. They showed up in droves like lemmings to a cliff, willing to spew hatred and vitriol in the names of their masters.

The next chapter came in the form of a non-plumber from Ohio who questioned Barack Obama during the 2008 Presidential Campaign under false pretenses. He became a hero that the lemmings followed as well, eating up his wingnut guano like young nested birds. Mouths open wide and necks stretched to get their share of the shit he was feeding them.

Limbaugh. Palin. Wurzelbacher. They’re all a bunch of cheap whores riding their 15 minutes of fame like cheap mules. Beating those bastards into as much fame and money as the creature celebrity will bear.

Limbaugh has done it for years and has racked up far more than his 15 minutes.

Joe the Plumber went from random dude to book deal at a breathtaking clip, never mind his working class credentials that should have called him back to the fold as a hard working, greasy fingered, blue collared working class plumber. No, Joe would rather jet around book stores talking about hard work rather than doing it. He’d rather sell you a book about “being a regular guy” than actually being one. He’s a cheap whore riding a cheap mule.

So now Sarah Palin quits a job where she can actually have some kind of impact to do what? Run for President in 2012? The idea seems unlikely given Americans tend to prefer those who fulfill their elected commitments as a condition of their obtaining higher office. Quitting is uniquely un-American. Don’t think I wouldn’t love her making a run, but I think it much more likely we’ll see her as a regular on Fox and Friends.

The story becomes a bit more clear today and confirms suspicions of many – Palin quit to cash in. She missed her target of VP and wants to at least gain something out of if before the flame begins to fade. Levi Johnston, once a part of the Sarah Palin Wingnut Sideshow Circus, dishes:

Johnston says he lived with the Palin family from early December to the second week in January. He claims he heard the governor several times say how nice it would be to take advantage of the lucrative deals that were being offered, including a reality show and a book.

So for all the rhetoric and hand-wringing, for all the folksy cuteness and engineered sloganism, in the end Sarah Palin is yet another in a long line of cheap whores on cheap mules.

Yah! Giddety up mule! Wooo doggy!

    When she accepted the VP nomination, she knew she needed to bring her professional game up to another level, she never did. She knew that her family would get attacked as did Hilary and Chelsea before her (by even her twin maverick brother McCain in 1998), let face it she knew her family affairs would come out. But now she plays the victim card again, a card she played after those comical first extended interviews that we all enjoyed and SNL immortalized. But for the icing on the cake, she quits, because she does not want to be a lame duck governor, because the lawsuits keep coming, because it was the media?s fault, because seeing Russia from her house finally got to her, because its not fair that Alaskan?s paid her salary while she was running for the VP position, take your pick. So what does she tells us? Dear Mr. President, when things get tough, quit. Dear military men and women, if you are not having fun, quit. Dear son or daughter, if things are not going your way, quit. Sure, I agree when she first was introduced and gave a descent speech, sure the polls went up, but after the extended interviews, they went where they ended, down. She showed her true character, I really hope the book deal, Radio/ TV shows and the lecture circuits make up for what her party has lost by her actions. She may go down in history as the quitter that twittered.

    Let me ask who would you chose to get a surgery from a person who worked hard and received an Ivy League education, or one who does not care about education (especially science) and drifts and somehow manages to get a degree. She showed her true character, by quitting (cut and run) just like her college years. She couldn?t even give a decent exit speech (her railings against the media was sweet until she did an about face and ask them to go on a fishing trip with her to clarify her ?Rambling Rose? comments). She was right for Alaska (with a population of less than 700,000), and her education matches it (journalism degree from the University of Idaho in 1987). But if you think anyone who wants to get our country back on track after the fiasco of the last administration with our economy and the fabrication of two wars then you along with the empty party are completely lost (are you surprise about the election results?). For the previous eight years we put up with a dullard president, but no more, you may try in 2012 but our eyes are open. I have heard that Republicans lost because God was against them, I can only say look at the candidates the Republicans put forward on their national ticket and don?t make the same mistake again. Mavericks, please, more like flash over substance (she quit and he fumbled) and the majority of voters saw it. We both know that she is cashing out, book deal, a show (Radio/TV), speaking engagements, she will keep stringing her followers along as long as she keeps the possibility open for running in 2012.

  • Benito, Paul, why do you too have the same IP address? I do like the quitter that twittered line, though…
