Sarah Palin Trashers Are Mostly Ex-Romney People

by Sara K. Smith

He's probably already forming an 'exploratory committee'Here is your hourly dose of Sarah Palin gossip: rumor has it that the leakers now feverishly promoting the most awful tales of her proud ignorance and white trash spending habits are all former Mitt Romney staffers. A whole truckload of these Romney people were hired by the McCain campaign after their guy bowed out of the primaries, and they spent the rest of the race watching sadly as the yokel and the angry old Panamanian failed to say a single intelligent thing about the economy.

This would kind of suck if your original candidate, the guy you actually liked, could have handled the most pressing political issue of the day about a thousand times better than the actual nominee. But counterbalance your sympathy with the fact that Romney loyalists are by definition fans of the biggest tool invented since the dildo.

Anyhow, recognizing Sarah Palin as Mittens’ most serious adversary in a 2012 presidential run, ex-Romney staffers have now reportedly devoted themselves to quietly talking shit about this lady, all the time. Writes Adam Fogle of The Palmetto Scoop:

FOX News Channel reported Wednesday that some staffers intentionally leaked negative information to the media about Palin in the final hours of the campaign that painted the Alaska governor as naive, incompetent, and needy. And my sources said that all of those leaks came from the Romney faction of the McCain campaign.

…[R]egardless of a McCain win or loss, Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016. And that made her a threat to a possible second run by Romney. You do the math.

This makes us a little sad that Romney didn’t get the nomination this year. His loyal staffers seem like a pack of ruthless little turds, and thus good for quotes, and laffs.

I’m sorry, but the rumor that she doesn’t know Africa is a continent, I think that beggars credibility, especially since it came from that Fox guy with the slingshot in his back pocket.

I will donate to Palin 2012 just to keep the fun rolling. Though that may be the most disturbing photo I have ever seen on Wonkette. It’s the political version of butt gut on a gurney.

And the scary thing is, that picture of Romney was taken when Palin walked into the room, wearing nothing but a towel.

After the American Civil War, white-trash dirt farmers and CSA veterans spent their time brooding over the carpetbaggers and federal troops in their midst. They didn’t get really ugly until Reconstruction ended, when they openly murdered ex-slaves and northern sympathizers. Charming lot. Lesson: fuel this little pissing contest as much as possible now, and let the bastards exterminate themselves before they have time to reconstitute.

So between the back stabbing and RedState’s idiotic “Operation Leper”, it looks like the Republicans have shot themselves in the foot twice. Palin is trashed and Romney is an untouchable. That leaves WALNUTS! who is too old to run in 2012. I guess that leaves the leader of the party as the ghost of Ronald Reagan.

Let’s get serious for a minute: Republicans, especially Mormon ones, hate women except in their proper place which is 3 steps behind. What Romney did to the female acting gov of my state (Massachusetts) and to his female lieutenant governor when she ran to succeed him doesn’t bear thinking about. Whatever possessed ex-acting gov Jane Swift to campaign for the Republicans this time I can’t imagine — tho her glazed eyes while she was doing it might be a clue.

I was wondering where all the incompetent ass-kissing syncophants that Deval Patrick pink-slipped had gone.

As bad as McCain was on the economy, Obama would have dismantled the Mormon Robot quite handily on that issue. Mitt’s performance on that topic while he was governor of the Bay State ranged from hilariously incompetent to piss-poor. Deval Patrick’s done better, and he flails like a fucking beached squid.

[re=170259]NoWireHangers[/re]: I seriously can’t think of a single viable name for the Repub 2112 nomination. However, they should just take it to the logical conclusion and nominate James Inhofe. His veep could be Idaho congresssman Bill Sali, or perhaps Alan Keyes or that smooth asshole from the Family Research Council whose name escapses me right now.

Ah, glorious future…

The Republicans need someone new, who is true to the soul of Real America. Young, square of jaw, lots of hair and a rant that is pure hellfire and brimstone. So God is in negotiations with Sean Hannity to put together a campaign team for 2012.

The projected outcome: After the internal Republican civil war, Hannity will lose South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi after Rush Limbaugh calls him a RINO faggot who wants to marry Alan Colmes. Utah won’t vote again until the candidate it Mittens. The Dakotas will be empty by then. Alaska seceded in 2010. Texas refuses to participate until it can annex the rest of Mexico.

God goes over to the White House every night and watches Fox News with Barack for a few laughs during the Palin commentary.

thefrontpage November 7, 2008 at 12:53 pm

Seriously, and from some very liberal, left-leaning Democrats who voted for Obma, it’s very, very simple:

If John McCain had chosen Mitt Romney or Tom Ridge as his running mate, it was a very real possibility that today, Friday, Nov. 7, 2008, we could still be trying to figure out the close results from the election on Nov. 4th. Or, as some people figured, McCain-Romney or McCain-Ridge could have actually won the election in a close race. Again, we don’t endorse any of them, but it’s a distinct possibility that, again, the Nov. 4th election either would have been very, very close, or McCain could have won outright with either Romney or Ridge as the running mate.

Palin is a moron, had no business being in the race, her selection was a completely stupid political blunder, and her selection cost McCain and the Republicans the race. It’s that simple.

Fun aside: When Coburn ran for the senate, he was caught on tape at a speech in Little Dixie (se part of OK) telling someone that lesbianism was so rampant down there that girls in the schools had to go to the bathroom one at a time so as not to be molested.

My hand to God, I am not making this up. And the dumb okies still elected him. I’d gladly give up my right to vote if someone would just disenfranchise my lameass state.
