Rogue Sarah Palin Called Liar By McCain Campaign

by Ken Layne

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]

Uh, so what were the remarks they sent her?

rambone October 27, 2008 at 3:06 pm

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.

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

He wanted a maverick, he got a maverick.

Internally valid October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

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

astroprofeddie October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

She looks like she is speaking parsel tongue in that picture

freakishlystrong October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

Isn’t “Rogue” like all “Mavricky”?

bitchincamaro October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

“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 October 27, 2008 at 3:09 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:10 pm

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

slappypaddy October 27, 2008 at 3:11 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:11 pm

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

strudelganger October 27, 2008 at 3:11 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:12 pm

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

magic titty October 27, 2008 at 3:12 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:12 pm

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

TeddyS October 27, 2008 at 3:13 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:14 pm

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

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

Hamster October 27, 2008 at 3:15 pm

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

JeffGoldblum October 27, 2008 at 3:15 pm

[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 October 27, 2008 at 3:16 pm

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!!!

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.

Woodwards Friend October 27, 2008 at 3:21 pm

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:24 pm

[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 October 27, 2008 at 3:25 pm

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)

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 October 27, 2008 at 3:29 pm

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.

well, they could always try reverse psychology.

answerbird October 27, 2008 at 3:32 pm

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.

“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.”

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 October 27, 2008 at 4:36 pm

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.
