Sarah Palin’s Long Goodbye

by Juli Weiner

  • Here is accredited sorcerer Nate Silver’s last projection ever. Tomorrow he will have to go back to his Alaska: baseball. [FiveThirtyEight]
  • O.P.R.A.H. has already chosen her ceremonial muumuu for Obama’s Eyes Wide Shut-themed inauguration. [Top of the Ticket]
  • Obama might want John Kerry to be his French Secretary of State. Old Man Windsurf’s name is reportedly on a “very short list.” [Matthew Yglesias]
  • The New York Times‘ fancy Web-Site will finally put to use all those sonnets you wrote about your Muslim Lady Laura. [New York Times]
  • Palin, stopping at some Alaskan pet shop called the “Mocha Moose,” told reporters that her only regret this election is “the blogosphere.” [Jonathan Martin]
 

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

John Kerry Secretary of State? More like John Kerry Ambassador to France.

Texan Bulldoggette November 4, 2008 at 4:57 pm

Well, our only regret this election is HER, so guess it’s all even!

Godot November 4, 2008 at 4:57 pm

Obama NEEDS Fareed Zakaria as his Secretary of State. NEEDS!

NoWireHangers November 4, 2008 at 4:57 pm

We regret you too, Caribou.

Viva la Cynthia November 4, 2008 at 4:58 pm

So reading her quote form the Jonathan Martin piece, does that mean she regrets the “lipstick on a pig” bullshit? Sounds like it to me…..

sarahconnor November 4, 2008 at 4:58 pm

sheesh, if not for “the blogoshphere” i doubt caribou barbie’s future as a reality show hostess/dancing with the stars contestant and such, would be so bright.

Outstando November 4, 2008 at 5:00 pm

I blame God for the blogosphere, but I’m not here to debate causes.

Outstando November 4, 2008 at 5:03 pm

Oh, and Kerry would suck. Look at that. Barry hasn’t even won yet and I’m trashing him. Anyway. Everyone in the world would have a better time with Bill Richardson than with John Kerry. Plus, an early foreign policy win with Latin America would be nice. A sane Cuba policy, some market-based samba, and a decent immigration policy. Kerry?

Nate Silver knows what we are going to do before we know it ourselves.

monty November 4, 2008 at 5:03 pm

tell her ‘I’ said to shut her facehole

charrington November 4, 2008 at 5:05 pm

Dumber than a bag of hammers. And who really thought she was the least bit hot? Have standards fallen that low?

I wonder how long it will take for the rest of the world to stop laughing.

Godot November 4, 2008 at 5:07 pm

I’m telling you, guys! Fareed Zakaria! He’s the new Obama!

Detective Bunk November 4, 2008 at 5:08 pm

Anyone have a good bingo/drinking game for this evening? I have some booze I need to burn off.

JohnnyMeatworth November 4, 2008 at 5:08 pm

wait, she knows the word “blogosphere?”

freakishlystrong November 4, 2008 at 5:09 pm

In all seriousness, if it weren’t for the blogosphere, *shudder, I would never had made it through this whole goddamn nightmare we call elections in this country, that said, by blogosphere I mean Wonkette. Y’all rock…

stew November 4, 2008 at 5:09 pm

The only endorsement that matters: Lead singer for Whitesnake supports Obama/pissed at McCain for using one of his forgotten songs. No word yet on how Tawney whatsername plans to vote.

vintageways November 4, 2008 at 5:11 pm

[re=164091]Godot[/re]: Obama and Zakaria in the same administration? I just had a nerdgasam. Obama has to make this happen and make all the nerd girls happy.

hedgehog November 4, 2008 at 5:12 pm

[re=164107]charrington[/re]: I’d hit that, go have a mocha latte, vote, check my e-mail, then come back and hit it again.

Darehead November 4, 2008 at 5:13 pm

MyFriends may come
MyFriends may go
MyFriends may Palin out. Ya know.
But we’ll be MyFriends thru Sick or Sin.
Palin-it-out or Palin-it-in.

Bye Sarah Louise Godzilla from Wasilla.

Texan Bulldoggette November 4, 2008 at 5:15 pm

[re=164109]Godot[/re]: He is a handsome muslin/Pakistani/non-feather Indian type of fellow. His teeth are like glow-in-the-dark white. I love watching him on GPS but could care less what those white dorks are yakking about.

blinky_twinkie November 4, 2008 at 5:17 pm

[re=164113]JohnnyMeatworth[/re]: I was just thinking that! Well, that and “dumber than a sack of hair…”

queeraselvis v 2.0 November 4, 2008 at 5:25 pm

Hmmm. Sarah has a great respect for journalism, eh? Loosely translated, this means: “Katie Couric would be the first one I shipped to Gitmo, if it weren’t for those meddling voters.”

Kwame' November 4, 2008 at 5:28 pm

[re=164109]Godot[/re]: I am quite fond of Fareed, but he has teeth like the voodoo doll in “Trilogy of Terror”.

slappypaddy November 4, 2008 at 5:29 pm

Caribou Barbie’s only regret is the First Amendment. Also.

Fear of a Black Reagan November 4, 2008 at 5:30 pm

O.P.R.A.H. has already chosen her ceremonial muumuu for Obama’s Eyes Wide Shut-themed inauguration.

ZMOGZ TEHRE’S GONA BE SO MUCH HAWT INTERRACIAL ACTION!!!!!

DemmeFatale November 4, 2008 at 5:33 pm

Box of hair,
Bag of hammers,
Sack o’ shit,
Whatever…buh-bye Sarah!

problemwithcaring November 4, 2008 at 5:35 pm

‘she explained, adding that she’d like to help improve the profession because she has “great respect for the world of journalism.”’

Urgh – My head just ‘spolded.

WadISay November 4, 2008 at 5:38 pm

The store’s owners had hung a red banner reading “Palin Fever” by the drive-thru window.

Palin Fever! Catch it!…and die.

War Eagle November 4, 2008 at 5:45 pm

This presidential election was a hell of a lot more fun than the past two. And if the blogosphere was laughing AT Sarah not WITH her, that’s a burden we can easily handle.

Joe the Plumber, Ashley, Sarah, Levi, Todd. The GOP provided a sit-com cast. Oh, and we are oh-so-close to finding how the story ends.

Maus November 4, 2008 at 5:56 pm

“she’d like to help improve the profession because she has “great respect for the world of journalism.”

That’s why she spent fifteen years getting an undergrad journalism degree, it all makes so much sense.

102415 November 4, 2008 at 6:18 pm

Shit, I put money down on 258 not that I have so much left to bet with.

loislane1939 November 4, 2008 at 7:29 pm

# Palin, stopping at some Alaskan pet shop called the “Mocha Moose,” told reporters that her only regret this election is “the blogosphere.”

My only regret is that I did not insult that bitch more.

OzoneTom November 4, 2008 at 8:39 pm

Ghod forbid that a modern-day Republican would take any personal responsibility for failure.

But I am quite giddy to have actually exchanged messages with people who have disappointed that silly wanker.

Keep up the good work.
