Rogue Sarah Palin Called Liar By McCain Campaign

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Back to Wasilla, loser.Ha ha ha, is there any chance McCain could still drop this grandstanding moron and pick Romney or somebody, er, less stupid and embarrassing? Sarah Palin just said, on the record, that the $150,000 clothes aren’t hers. “Those clothes, they are not my property.” And then a senior adviser on the McCain campaign tells CNN that Palin’s lies “were not the remarks we sent to her plane this morning.” [Ben Smith/CNN]

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

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Uh, so what were the remarks they sent her?

  • rambone

    Perhaps we should reconsider the social utility of the mavericky quality those two are always going on about. I’m thinking coloring inside the lines might be helpful sometimes.

  • OhWhyOhio

    The schadenfreude is so delicious I may have to skip my next meal – it’s spoiling my dinner.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    He wanted a maverick, he got a maverick.

  • Internally valid

    Romney? Ken, do you remember Romney? Sure Palin is a fail, but really, Mittens would only be slightly less embarrassing. Plus he’d be all Mormony. He really needed to pick that one really great republican politician . . . who was that again? Oh, it will come to me.

  • SayItWithWookies

    She just meant that the Treasury Dept. has nationalized her assets. Now her $150,000 wardrobe belongs to the people.

  • astroprofeddie

    She looks like she is speaking parsel tongue in that picture

  • freakishlystrong

    Isn’t “Rogue” like all “Mavricky”?

  • bitchincamaro

    It’s in the campaign’s best interest to keep the MSM focused on the stolen wardrobe so as divert their attention from their upcoming efforts to steal the election. In that effort, Palin is totally on message.

  • TommySez

    “Obama is a Muslin Commie who wants to take your guns, knock-up your daughters, then force them to have abortions at gun-point.”

    Just the usual.

  • StripesAndPlaids

    Sarah Palin is just like the rest of us! I have this problem at work too! My uniforms belong to McDonald’s, not to me. So suck it you liberal elitists. And…can I supersize that for you?

  • Tommy Says Soooo

    The stains on said clothing count as a donation that SP may deduct from her taxes.

  • slappypaddy

    My clothes are not my property. They are all purchased with credit cards, and belong to the Bank of America. I plan on donating them to charity as soon as they wear out.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    [re=150744]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I wuv you.

  • strudelganger

    I wish that he had picked someone slightly less obviously awful, like Mittens, so that they wouldn’t have such an obvious scapegoat for their expected monumental unequivocal FAIL coming up (knock on wood).

  • Giant Robot

    Remarks sent by boat to her plane… d’oh!!

  • magic titty

    Haha – they have to send her remarks. But sure, us libruls are sexist. God, I don’t believe in you so much, but please eradicate the GOP scourge. Maybe even on a Sunday, like a MAVERICK.

    Anyway – I’ll disagree with Mister Layne here slightly: I do not agree that Mittens Romney is less dumb or embarrassing than Palin. They’re tied.

  • PengIn

    I’m pretty sure this is all just a ploy to get Palin to spend the last week campaigning in a bikini.

  • TeddyS

    You people running the McCain campaign quit being mean. Let Sarah be Sarah. Let her dress in rags and do her own makeup so she can write a backward B on her cheek with the lipstick she normally shares with her pig, Zamboni. We SO want Caribou Barbie to be the new standard bearer of the Republican Party.

  • JoeFannyPack

    How long until a “family emergency” or “personal issue” precludes Palin from continuing to be on the ticket?

  • bearbait

    [re=150743]Internally valid[/re]: Lieberman?

  • pondscum

    [re=150761]PengIn[/re]: A confederate flag bikini…

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Hmmm….someone “less stupid & embarrassing”. Let’s just whip out the phone book, shall we? Anyone in the As would probably work.

  • Hamster

    They should have sent a missle to her plane instead of “remarks”.

  • JeffGoldblum

    [re=150760]magic titty[/re]: At least Mittens is appropriately rich to be on a GOP ticket. What’s Palin worth, like 2 mil tops? It’s a damn shame, really.

  • liberaltruthsayer

    M is for makeup ($5000 worth)
    A is for artist ($22,000 for two weeks work)
    V is for vetting (epic fail!)
    E is for eating crow. Enjoy reputhuglicans! NOM!
    R is for going rogue.
    I is for I can’t wait for election day.
    C is for what McCain is surely muttering every time he hears her name mentioned.
    K is for killing the ticket.

    Thanks you mavericky mavericks!!!

    [re=150743]Internally valid[/re]: Goldwater!

  • whiteasasheet

    I’m with shortsshortsetc. What the hell did they want her to say? And was it THIS morning they finally got their shit together to have a coordinated talking point on this to send to her? And, lastly and most importantly, isn’t this thing a hoot?! It’s the gaffe that keeps on gaffing.

  • JGB

    [re=150763]JoeFannyPack[/re]: as soon as the ADN breaks the Trig story.

  • One Yield Regular

    “Madame Vice President, the people have no winter coats.”

    “Let them wear Chanel.”

  • blader

    Uh oh, it looks like Frankensarah has escaped from the castle!

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=150744]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Can we choose which parts we want? You could not pay me to take the red leather 1980s-style jacket, but the black boots, I would wear.

  • Woodwards Friend

    Well in fairness to Palin, the McCain campaign forget to spell out the big words phonetically so the prepared remarks were useless to her.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=150760]magic titty[/re]: and at least we can ask Mittens questions without being sexists. (the latest horrible sexist attack is about her clothes, apparently:

    “The Alaska governor was introduced yesterday at a Tampa rally by ‘The View’s’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who called coverage of the $150,000 wardrobe flap ‘deliberately sexist.'” ]

  • WadISay

    I hope Obama adds this to his speech Wednesday: “John McCain commander-in-chief and leader of the free world? Puh-leeze, he can’t even keep his bitchz in line.” (gay hand flip)

  • natoslug

    [re=150743]Internally valid[/re]: Sure he’s dead, but considering the hard-on every Republican has for him, why not run Reagan as the nominee in 2012? Death cancels that whole term limit thing, doesn’t it? With Romney as the VP, it can be Zombie/Romney ’12!

  • Internally valid

    [re=150771]magic titty[/re]: Yes. Though I’m 27, I pretend to remember Goldwater fondly . . . I’m not entirely sure why, but I hear he didn’t hate teh gheys or teh blacks, so, you know, that’s good.

  • ronaldpagan

    [re=150743]Internally valid[/re]: Wurzelbacher

  • Hopey dont play that game

    Thank God Sarah had the good sense to turn down McCain’s socialist “clothes redistribution plan”. Jesus asked her to keep the clothing (because the thriller jacket protects her against witches) so this may look like a contradiction to you Elistist book-lover types.

  • stygg

    If I had to take a guess, her real clothes from Sarah’s favorite consignment shop in Anchorage probably consist of a lot of ‘mom’ jeans and sweaters with reindeer on them. However, in my mind, under those dowdy Alaska-lady duds, she is wearing really trashy lingerie.

  • thejames

    Oh hell it is SO much fun watching the McCain campaign crash and burn.

  • vintageways

    [re=150743]Internally valid[/re]: 2000 McCain?

  • Internally valid

    [re=150795]natoslug[/re]: Lewis Black beat you to the punch on the zombie Reagan thing. But is America ready for a zombie president?

  • swarm of bees

    Dear lord! Next thing you know the official McCain campaign memorandum re: Palin will be, “Who? What? Her? Um, never seen her before in my life.”

  • Iggy Plop

    well, they could always try reverse psychology.

  • answerbird

    Hey she better watch her back. She fired her police chief because he was a rouge. That would be the ultimate Walnuts stunt – claim he made a huge mistake and put Romney on the ticket. He is good with that Derivatives shit and he can afford his own make-up and hair cuts.

  • hockeymom

    [re=150804]Hopey dont play that game[/re]: I think “socialism” was last week’s word. The meme this week is “marxist”.

    Get with the program.
    Or pogram, considering the source.

  • AliBabaInBA

    Hi Kids! Been awhile.
    Just a thought, but once Grumpy Gramps realizes for himself that he’s piloting another crash, I kinda think he’s gonna make sure Pale-in goes down with it.
    Maybe it’s more of wish . . .

  • President Beeblebrox

    [re=150763]JoeFannyPack[/re]: I’d say that’ll happen in about, oh, 9 days or so.

  • Vewol Mevemont

    Oh Sarah, you can’t undigest a turd. Once you shit it out, it’s never going to be edible again.

  • StrangelyBrown

    [re=150828]hockeymom[/re]: Wake me when they get to Luxemburgism.

  • PentagonBookkeeper

    Do they make wax figures for the Rogues Gallery? The big money wardrobe could be on display, and all proceeds could go to prosthetics for all the maimed Iraqi victims of our shock and awe shucks.
    McCain, Plastic Cindy and Maverick Barbie could just stand there forever and ever.

  • Min

    Liar, liar, extremely expensive designer pants on fire.

  • magic titty

    [re=150790]Doglessliberal[/re]: Elizabeth Hassleback is a vapid twit born with a silver spoon in her mouth. The only thing ‘Average Joe’ about her is her intelligence.

    [re=150798]Internally valid[/re]: I’m not much older than you, but I agree. Weirdly he was crushed in ’64 by LBJ’s vicious warmongering. Haha, people from Texas are CRAZY.

    [re=150769]JeffGoldblum[/re]: Yes, I believe at 2M, she is of ‘frugal’ means.

  • hockeymom

    [re=150847]StrangelyBrown[/re]: well, studies do show that Luxemburgites/Luxembergers (?) consume the most alcohol, so Luxemburgism could be a winning strategy.
    That, and the low unemployment rate.
    And the pretty, pretty castles.

    I demand more Luxenburgism!

  • PoliTacky

    “Those clothes, they are not my property. Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else that the RNC purchased, I’m not taking them with me.” – Sarah Palin

    Translation: “Much like the lighting and staging, I am a cheap political prop, an empty mannequin that is filled up daily with incendiary talking points designed to distract people’s attention away from their growling stomachs and copious amounts of tears streaming down their faces as they watch the repo men confiscate their worldly possessions. Every day, obscenely expensive but modest clothes are wrapped around my body by cartoon bluebirds in an effort to portray me as possessing a repressed, prudish sexuality that appeals to the sexually frustrated Republican base. It’s all done with the hope that crude men will vote with their erections and their dull, submissive women will want to emulate me in order to benefit from those same erections. As a former beauty queen, I am well versed in how to subconsciously appeal to the basest instincts of the reptilian brain, and the political theater allows me to add feelings of fear and hatred, as well as sexual desire, to my repertoire. It is unfortunate that these tactics were discovered publicly, and while I will say whatever I have to to disown these cheap political tricks, I would not stop the psychodrama any more than I would slice off my own face with a rusty scalpel.”

  • Gopherit

    Haha!! Cough up the $50K of taxes, you mavricky rogue, you!

  • Deepthroat

    does Diva trump Maverick?

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=150867]magic titty[/re]: and I love that someone who got famous by running around half-naked on a reality show and then by marrying a football player trumpets “sexism”. Right, honey, only when you don’t like the perks it is bringing.

  • LBOtomist

    [re=150887]PoliTacky[/re]: Was that really the quote? God, I wish she would hurry up with the not taking it with her part. To quote the great cultural philospher Rik James (as adapted by Dave Chappelle) – The milks gone bad bitchez.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=150909]Doglessliberal[/re]: And parlayed that a job on an all-woman talkshow…

  • PoliTacky

    Oh, looky here:

    RNC also maybe-allegedly-possibly-hopefully paid for Palin to get a $900. spray-on tan! I guess she couldn’t realistically schlep the tanning bed from the Gov.’s mansion on the road, though, and nobody wanted 2 pasty freaks on the trail…

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    How could she deliver prepared remarks and still be a maverick? It’s the Catch 22 word of the entire debacle — a euphemism for “clueless.” What party are she and McCain’t representing? It certainly isn’t the GOP of Ike, TR and Lincoln; it’s sort of the Wayne’s World party, as far as I can figure.

  • natoslug

    [re=150817]Internally valid[/re]: Damn him! And he was funnier, too. He stole my idea by thinking of it first, the bastard.

  • Borat

    This is like a schoolyard argument. Who can call the other side a liar more. TIMES infinity. TIMES infinity +1!!

  • Borat

    So Bible Spice, How do you intend on paying for that makeup bill and/or reporting it on your taxes. Or does your makeup not belong to you too?

    (now that I’m thinking about it…can you imagine the Starbursts associated with proles thinking about her not owning her panties??? Oh, if only they were sold on eBay…)

  • SuperStarr

    Just me, or was anyone else thinking that although helping special needs kids is a wonderful idea, vouchers for private schools won’t, uh, work? Like why be a private school anyway if you have to admit just anyone? It’s just sad.
