National Review Wingnut Lady Now Hates Sarah Palin’s Guts

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

We don’t really know how anyone could justify Sarah Palin’s placement on the ticket after those Katie Couric interviews. She shouldn’t be vice president at all — she should be president! For life! No?? Ha she is so rancid, and now even the wingnuttiest National Review dingbats are starting to agree. Check out this denunciation from Kathleen Parker, famous for once justifying a racist’s claim that we need “someone who is a full-blooded American as president,” meaning not Barack Obama. (She also frequently holds these godawful crabby sob-chats with her slightly stupider NRO friend, Kathryn Jean Lopez.) Why is Kathleen Parker being so sexist again po’ Sarah P? [National Review]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Tommy Says Soooo

    Um, isn’t the phrase “Like so many women, I’ve been pulling for Palin” at least ONE way to avoid another GOP/Larry Craig scandal?

    The damned Republicans are supposed to grope for yer wallets, no wonder you don’t do the Democratic method right.

  • stew

    Dig that shit-eating grin!

  • SuperRounder

    Man, this bandwagon is so full, Ann Coulter couldn’t fit on it.

  • ella

    “If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.”

    I wish I’d thought of that first.

  • Serolf Divad

    I don’t understand it. Over the past few days we’ve discovered that Sarah Palin is probably the least elitist person in the world. She’s less elite than your neighbor’s “special child” (the one who spoons his chocolate pudding into his nostrils and ears). Hell, she’s probably even less elite than a houseplant. Isn’t that what Republicans kept telling us they wanted?

  • Scarab

    Hey look, the Conservatives finally caught up!
    It only took them a month to realize Palin is a horrible mistake.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …is hating Sara Palin the “in” thing now? Because if it is then I’m gonna have to start liking her!

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

    Ha! Welcome to where we’ve all been for weeks now, Kathleen! Glad you could catch up.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    From the article there is an undertone of “So Sarah Palin isn’t even fit to be a WOMAN?” Jeebus this is not working out for Walnuts.

  • DoctorCulturae

    Perhaps the only way to bring Gov. She-with-wind-between-the-ears out the closet is for the MSM to start patronizing poor lil ole Sarah with pity because mean Grandpa won’t let her out to play. The Femibitterz will connipt.

  • Cape Clod

    Amazing. A republican who performs badly enough that the wing nuts at the Corner are calling for her pack up her desk. Sorry, I’m feeling a little light headed right now.

  • StripesAndPlaids

    Oh no. I think the conservatives has a sad.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    Ooo. And how did I miss this gem: If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

    Someone’s a little cranky with her VP option today.

  • professor.cj

    I guess Kathleen Parker isn’t aware of that “Palin’s name is already on the ticket and it’s too late to change in some big game-changing states” thing, right?

    But it would be sorta funny: “Sorry everybody, I forgot about my baby over here, gotta run back to Alaska. It’s been fun! See ya!”

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=109780]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Seriously. I think Kathleen would like Barbie’s ovaries revoked.

  • hockeymom

    Begin the countdown for a Palin pull-out. So McCain can pick someone else (hello, Mittens!) and win the thing on yet another stunt.

  • comradepaulson

    “If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.”

    I thought our currency was BS? That’s what our Chinese overlords told me. Do you mean I bought this pooping cow for nothing? Am I talking about the economic crisis or Palin?

    Oh sweet Jebus, help me now.


    I bet Joe Lieberman is smirking a lot these days.

  • ManchuCandidate

    But apparently the dumbass wingnuts are calling “White Power” Parker a Libtard!?!

  • tunamelt

    [re=109778]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: You’re a Maverick.

  • S.Luggo

    One must ask either:
    1. Why does Kathy Parker hate America?
    2. How did Campbell Brown find the time to write this column?

    All answers must be postmarked no latter than today.

  • NoWireHangers

    Jim, if you’re going to post this lady’s picture at least use the one that’s photoshopped with a Hitler ‘stache.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Wow — smacked down by Katie Couric and Kathleen Parker in the same week — I can only imagine Britney Spears is soon to follow.

  • user-of-owls

    Ah, finally. The Republican circular firing squad begins to close.

  • WhatTheHeck

    Here’s why, Jim.

    I’ve seen the Palin interviews a few times and each time my jaw drops open and spit drips out. The only other time that happened to me was when I saw a chupacabre.

  • irisheyes

    Holy Shit. Did a staunch supporter just call for the removal of Palin from the ticket? EPIC FAIL!!!!!

  • user-of-owls

    [re=109776]Serolf Divad[/re]: less elite than a houseplant

    Ferns are pretty elitist. And don’t get me started on orchids.

  • hockeymom

    Meanwhile, in Malkin-ville, Michelle has a completely insane column about ants, grasshoppers and Obama being a Cicada or something.

    Why does Michelle hate insects?

  • 2druk2phluq

    [re=109792]professor.cj[/re]: There is a very real pool on the possibility that “family concerns” will force Palin to leave the ticket. Almost everybody who placed bets on it have already lost though, because nobody expected her to be around this long.

    [re=109778]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: I probably will never like a bitch who speaks in tongues, forces her daughter into a marriage, tries to cut the nuts off her sister’s ex, sticks her foot up rape victims’ asses, sucks off the entire RNC while delivering an acceptance speech (she’s very quick), confuses Alaska with the real world and refuses to allow herself to be completely sequestered from the press (even though it’s killing us).

    However, I have found myself… (this is very hard to say) feeling sorry for her. I hate Walnuts! more for that than anything else he has ever done. It’s unnatural for me to feel sorry for a Republican. It’s like cloning a booger or something… just a straight abomination.

  • Servo

    Yet another shitty investment brought to light.

  • sati demise

    Well done Parker, except for that devilish mean backstabbing comment about Biden. Couldn’t help yourself, could you?

    Yea, Biden tickles his throat with his toes, and at the same time talks coherently and substantively about foreign policy. He used to perform this trick in the late night comedy clubs for tips.

  • StrangelyBrown

    Et tu, Nazi cow?

  • TeddyS

    No! Sarah Must Stay! Let Sarah be Sarah, and give her every opportunity to speak in public. Hell, even create opportunities for her to open her yap. Every time she does, McCain sinks a little lower in the electoral waters. I want a Biden-Palin debate!

  • V572625694

    [re=109792]professor.cj[/re]: Oh, an Eagleton/McGovern-style strategic withdrawal is well within the realm of possibility. “Trig is sick, I must nurture him!” Plus it’d be another way for Juan to dominate a few days worth of news cycles, in the way he loves to do.

  • loquaciousmusic

    Andrew Sullivan is thrilled. He has a whole bunch of reax to Sarah Hotpants’ interview with Kathy Couric. They’re worth reading.

  • V572625694

    [re=109797]hockeymom[/re]: Mittens? How ’bout Vinegar Joe-mentum? Oh, it would be so sweet….

  • edgydrifter

    Watching Governor Yup-yup blather doesn’t make me feel sorry for her, it makes me feel sorry for me. But that’s just me. That’s how I roll.

    [re=109820]Servo[/re]: You stay the fuck away from that ficus.

    I might have had a little sympathy if she weren’t so fucking phony. Nothing better than seeing a deluded narcissist get theirs.

  • grendel

    [re=109782]Cape Clod[/re]: “ah do believe ah have the vapors!”

  • edgydrifter

    Oh, and by the way… anyone who uses “Birkenstock-wearing” as a pejorative is a bona fide asshat dipshit whose pantry is stocked to the rafters with Bag-o-Dick snack paks. Birkenstocks are comfortable–FUCKING comfortable. The single most pleasant moment of my day is getting home from work and sliding into a pair of those sumbitches. It feels like full-body oral. Yes it does.

  • DailyComicsReview

    Sarah Palin answers questions like a 4th grader would write a college level poli-sci thesis. When you read the exact worlds she actually says it is impossible to comprehend what the fuck she’s talking about.

  • grendel

    [re=109817]2druk2phluq[/re]: That’s why Dems lose… conscience… don’t feel sorry for her. Spit on her and keep shoveling the dirt onto her head till she’s buried.

  • gliberal

    Kathleen has extensive nitwit experience. She can see a nitwit every day in her bathroom mirror.

  • greatgooglymoogly

    [re=109817]2druk2phluq[/re]: [re=109826]V572625694[/re]: Re “family concerns” – my money is on Trig (or Trag or Grog or whatever her oldest son’s name is) getting shot up in Iraq (not killed, please, just “shot up,” with mysterious wounds we’ll never really know about). Palin will have to stay with her eldest while becoming a national defense expert and saying that this is why we need John McCain. Replacement: Huckleberry.

    [re=109817]2druk2phluq[/re]: Re “feeling sorry for Palin” – do not waste your time with these fleeting “phantom” emotions. It is the same inchoate regret that Palin would feel as she launched the Iranian exchange that would lead to the end of our world. “Oh, well, God’s will be done. Fire when ready, general.”

  • sati demise

    [re=109871]edgydrifter[/re]: Republicans have a lock on the uncomfortable shoe demographic. Thats why they have a hard time thinking and talking at the same time.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=109861]grendel[/re]: Yay! I’ve always wanted to be an elitest sexist. My options have been so limited, up until now, seeing as how I own my own vagina.

  • grendel

    [re=109871]edgydrifter[/re]: How about using “hirsute”… “hairy” is both shorter and understood by more people you pretentious cunt.

  • greatgooglymoogly

    [re=109913]grendel[/re]: Yeah … I thought “hirsute” only applied to werewolves.

  • longjohnson

    Walnuts and Mittens . . .its not too late . . . is it?

  • Cape Clod

    [re=109871]edgydrifter[/re]: America isn’t interested in your elitist ‘comfort’, Drifter.

  • edgydrifter

    [re=109913]grendel[/re]: Well, I cut her slack on that one on account of it’s a personal preferance thing and a good fifty-cent word. Some folks don’t grok the hippie furries–their loss, IMO. In the proper context (i.e. deep in the woods out of your mind on shrooms), a fuzzy gal is just the ticket for mental grounding and chakra-blasting sexy time.

  • dano

    Damn, even the National Review wants to put her adrift on an ice flow.

  • Cronopio

    I don’t want Palin to back out now…let her stay on and keep being very much herself.

  • Clyde Midia

    Flalin’ Spice!

  • naveed

    Who in the hell is going to join this losingest ticket? Lookup what happened with the Eagleton -> Shriver switch. A metric assload of people said HELL NO to getting added to that one before Shriver signed up. The rejecters were winners not idiots.

  • dano

    [re=109962]naveed[/re]: Yes. Admitting to a mistake is like Kryptonite for Republicans. The only thing McCain can do now is limit access to Palin and hope for the best.

  • Miller

    Just as long as she doesn’t pull out before the Biden-Palin debate. She is going to break the unintentional comedy scale there and may get us downgraded from World Superpower status.

  • Crapola

    Kathleen Parker was obviously taken when Palin announced that she and Trigg would have a friend in the White House.

  • jasonelias

    [re=109921]greatgooglymoogly[/re]: I remember hirsute being referenced to the ’70s Beach Boys. Because they were hairy and I read it somewhere…

  • user-of-owls

    How come there’s no Intrade line on Palin dropping out, or going hunting with Cheney and having a little hunting accident?

  • morristhepat

    Oh Look

    The Right is having people vote that Palin is qualified. PBS has a poll that asks: Is Sarah Palin qualified to be VP? Let’s turn this around….. You don’t have to give your name or email address in order to vote. Here’s the link:

  • TeddyS

    Grendel: You got it right. Do not provide a moment’s rest or a second of pity. She wants to be your President! Imagine that nitwit in the White House. George W. Bush would no longer be America’s dumbest President.

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    Welcome to the fact-based world, Kathleen, where we’ve known for quite some time that Caribou Barbie is a total moran.

  • Rush

    Turn out the lights, the party’s over…..

    Frankly, if I were a woman (there was that “experimental” time back in college), I would be angry that she was asked to be on the ticket at all. She is being used and really looks dumb and soon she’ll become more “sympathetic” vs. “pathetic”.

  • Hedley Lamar

    I’m betting the little Trig or Track or wtf his name is comes down with

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    This call for removal from the very quarters that McCain’t was trying to placate with Palin shows once again that Johnny boy hasn’t a clue whassup with the Republican party. He nominated someone who insists that dinosaurs roamed the planet 5,000 years ago, because that’s when Creation happened. The GOP loves such nut cases as one loves an aunt with Alzheimer’s — she gets the best care at home, but you don’t make her vice president of the company. McCain’t is so eager to be expedient and tell people what they want to hear that he doesn’t listen — just as Nader is equally eager to tell people what they don’t want to hear and doesn’t listen. It’s weird and sad.

    Even O’Reilly’s making weird noises. He blames Bush for the economic crisis, and yells about cigar-chomping right-wing liars (Rush must not have invited him to the Oxycontin and Hookers party). He does sort of snap back at the end and blame Barney Frank for all the problems in the world, because he’s on a committee.

    True story,

    I went around and around with Ms. Parker about the photo that Wonkette shows. Turns out she’s, like, 73, but still uses that photo, at least in our local rag, the Cincinnati Enquirer which, I’m sure, is on the cusp of endorsing George W. Bush for a third term.

    [re=109817]2druk2phluq[/re]: Why would you feel sorry for her? Her ego let her accept a nomination for which she surely knew she wasn’t qualified. Then again, maybe she really is stupid enough to think she’s qualified.
