Sarah Palin Quits 5K Charity Run, Too

by Ken Layne

Epic Fail?Yikes, did we imply Sarah Palin was acting like a “normal ‘Merikun” in eastern Washington State for Thanksgiving? Sorry about that! Palin was just being a Prima Donna nutcase, like always.

First, enjoy this local-news video report about Sarah’s visit to the “Tri-Cities,” and notice how Miss Regular Folks thinks it’s “too much work” to prepare turkey for Thanksgiving. Can’t somebody do this shit for her? No? Then fuck it, and FUCK THANKSGIVING:

And now, Sarah’s latest quitter stunt: She won’t even run an easy 5K thing for charity, because finishing is not a mavericky thing to do.

The Tri-City Herald reports:

Palin had announced on Twitter that she would be running the 5k race organized by the Benton-Franklin Chapter of the Red Cross.

She didn’t finish the race, opting to leave the course early to avoid more crowds at the end. About 40 minutes into the run, word started trickling out to people gathered at the finish line that she was gone.

Again with the outside-the-box maverick behavior. Winning stuff, or finishing things? Not for Sarah Palin! [Tri-City Herald via Wonkette operative "SloppyCronkite"]

About 40 minutes into the run, word started trickling out to people gathered at the finish line that she was gone.
If they’d gathered at the finish line to see Sister Sarah finish something, the news she’d blown them off probably wasn’t the only thing trickling out of those people.

In honor of ‘Scara, they will now be referred to as the ‘Don’t Even Bother Trying-Cities.’

SayItWithWookies November 27, 2009 at 6:09 pm

Gee, I would be disappointed in Sarah Palin if I had unrealistic expectations of her. Oh wait — no I wouldn’t. I’d make up some idiotic excuse and then blame the mainstream media for politicizing her noble behavior. And just once — for the troops — could you stop making things up?

the problem child November 27, 2009 at 6:10 pm

And so her fans were not able to collect her precious and triumphant drops of sweat, the end.

Seriously, the amount of makeup she was wearing at the beginning of the race, she must have been scared to be photographed at the end of it.

Snarkalicious November 27, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Sweat = Sanity therefore crazy ass bitch?

shadowMark November 27, 2009 at 6:12 pm

Sarah quit a “5K?” That’s like a … marathon , right?

Join us now, we’re on a marathon
We’re always dancing when the music plays

Join us now, we’re on a marathon
Dancing, dancing through the nights and days

We must dance because the Fifties zing
The Fifties zing because the Sixties swing
And the Seventies flash and the Eighties bang
And the Nineties whimper and the Century hangs

Robots working in the cotton fields
Vacations on Venus just a tourist deal
Fornication on tape instant happiness
So we keep on dancing, dancing, we can’t rest

Marathon, marathon
Mara, mara, marathon
Marathon, marathon
Mara, mara, marathon

Last year, in that turkey abbatoir video thing Sara said she was always “in charge” fixing the turkey. Now it’s too much trouble.

bitchincamaro November 27, 2009 at 6:17 pm

She was going to finish until she was told the runners didn’t get to keep the pledged proceeds. This is Sarah’s monetizing season and America will not ruin it for her, dang it!

drrty martini November 27, 2009 at 6:25 pm

We from Washington refer to it as the Dry Shitties. As a bonus: one of the three cities is named Pasco, which – if I remember from a semester of ancient Greek – means “despair”.

imissopus November 27, 2009 at 6:33 pm

She was probably anxious to get on with quitting her book tour.

This reminds me, Sarah almost got me a black eye yesterday at the family gathering, when, in the spirit of bi-partisanship, I innocently mentioned her “God wouldn’t have made animals out of meat if he didn’t want us to eat them” comment. My brother glared at me with STFU in his eyes and told me to stop “insulting her,” but all the libruls were giggling.

[re=467222]drrty martini[/re]: My grandparents used to live in Kennewick, one of the Tri-Cities. Because the airport is in Pasco, I made the mistake of telling a friend that I was in Pasco; my grandmother, most upset, corrected me, noting that Pasco is where “all the messicans live.” Plus, the place got as hot as the fifth circle of hell, as the brand on back of my sister’s upper leg–courtesy of the blazing hot seat belt buckle of my grandparents’ U.S.S.

Did anyone actually see her leave the race? My guess is if she wasn’t tethered to a pace car or another runner, she’s probably stumbling around Montana somewhere whining and pissing and moaning.

I’m gonna start doing this. She’s got the right idea.

Gonna tell my boss I got about halfway done with the latest document and well, I didn’t finish it FOR THE GOOD OF OUR ORGANIZATION.

When I went over to my Mormon aunt and uncle’s house, I should have stopped eating halfway through and said I was leaving, due to the lack of alcohol.

What a great idea!

Dear Diorama November 27, 2009 at 10:48 pm

Everyone finishes races. And since she was just going to finish it anyway, what was the point?

get real November 27, 2009 at 10:49 pm

She quit when someone told her mid-race that the Charity 5K was not for her and she would not be collecting any money for the event.

AxmxZ November 27, 2009 at 10:51 pm

It took her over 40 minutes to run less than 5K? Was she walking on all fours or something?

sezme November 27, 2009 at 11:18 pm

Does she really have to explain why she had to quit the race? You just don’t get it, do you? Also, she never finished reading her own book past the second chapter. Anyway she probably just fell down again.

LowerdPeninsula November 27, 2009 at 11:33 pm

I’m sorry, I ususally laugh about this stuff and don’t think it’s serious. But to start and then dip a 5k is just insulting. If you didn’t want to run this short-ass race, you should have never started it. What a fucking flake, and that’s coming from someone that is struck by flakiness every once in awhile.

BTW, the race is for the Red Cross. I guess since it’s not directly “for the troops” she’s not for finishing it.

The Waddoupses weren’t running or walking in the annual charity race. But Palin, in town to visit relatives for the Thanksgiving holiday, had pre-registered to join 3,000 others on the course, and her notoriety attracted a mass of onlookers in Columbia Park.

“Sorry, we’re stalking Sarah Palin, I’m afraid,” said Gary Waddoups.

“In a big way,” his wife added.

Game over, folks. Game-fucking-over.

Neoyorquino November 28, 2009 at 1:55 am

From Sarah’s Runner’s World article:

“No matter how rotten I feel before or during a run, it’s always worth it to me afterwards.”

“I appreciated the fact that in running I needed guts more than anything. I could do fine just being really determined. I was thankful that I didn’t need a whole lot of skills to run.”

Yikes. That second quote says a lot more about her non-athletic endeavors than it does about her running.

I wish that, as a graduate of Hanford High School, named after the Unites States’ most contaminated nuclear site, I could say that it was the radiation that got to her but I think years of aerosol hairspray got to her first. Seriously folks, this has to be the most exciting thing to happen to the Tri-Cities since they took down the “No blacks after dark” sign on the bridge between Kennewick and Pasco.

I do hope those good people at the finish line weren’t holding copies of sister Sarah’s book, hoping to get it autographed because she’d stiffed them after they’d camped out for 3 weeks in front of the Bumfuck Barnes and Nobles.
That would be a bit much.

Snowbilly has been working through the various stages of celebrity and folks are starting to get tired of her. She really only has a couple of options left:

1. Make a sex tape, preferably with Levi
2. Go into rehab and make a grand apology.

Barring that, there is of course the third option:

3. Be found dead on the bathroom floor in her hotel room, a la Elvis.

As much as I view Sarah as the gift that keeps on giving, there’s also a part of me that absolutely cannot WAIT for her to get her comeuppance, when the zombie undead who worship her realize that she’s just like the annoying piece of trailer park trash they already live next door to that annoys the everloving shit out of them on a daily basis. I can’t believe the zombie undead have a limitless amount of stardust sprinkled on them.

[re=467337]El Pinche[/re]: On that OT: http://fdlaction.firedoglake.com/2009/11/27/how-is-newt-gingrich-not-a-lobbyist/

My feeling (preaching to the choir) on this always boils down to campaign finance reform. Had there been substantial public finance legislation in the days before Obama endeavored to change the health care system, those bills would look a lot different and so would the entire outlook for any real change in this country. Without it, the pols will always play the whore and the pimp simultaneously. The prospect of campaing reform is as likely as Sarah Palin finishing a measly 5k run.

[re=467346]MortSinclair[/re]: Which would be more likely to happen if politics were a fact-based system instead of a faith-based one. For Sarah to get her comeuppance, she’d have to believe it happened, and her followers would have to believe it happened. And if you know anything about the power of denial in the human species, you know how low the odds are. Really, anyone who still thinks she’s a viable candidate after the Katie Couric interview will not be swayed by further evidence.

I have to disagree with you there, this has nothing whatsoever to do with denial. You must actually KNOW something before you can deny its existence. You have given Sarah and The Sycophants WAY too much credit. Their’s is actually a case of ignorance – which doesn’t mean stupidity, but rather the inability to recognize the existence of something. Did you know that when the early explorers arrived in ships off the coast of South America (or wherever the hell it was)the natives did not even NOTICE the boats? They had absolutely nothing in their past to compare such things to – therefore their brains did not register their existence – until it was too late. They literally could not perceive what was right in front of their eyes. In contrast, that optical blind spot you have,which is due to a lack of receptor cells on the retina – your brain actually makes up what it “thinks should be there” so you never notice a hole in your visual field. Your brain is constantly fucking with you – don’t ever forget that.

The reason the religious folks are so set in their ways is also due to ignorance.

But we all need something to hold onto – for the secular folks it’s usually the intellect – which also lacks any foundation in the real world, but at least it seems a more mature alternative.

Sarah Palin Kills Canadan Coemdia With Kindness


Have you seen this yet? The TV personality from Canada who tried to use Sarah Palin as a comic prop?

If you read agenda driven liberal blogs like the Huffington Post or Wonkette, you would think that Sarah Palin came off bad. But when you actually watch the clip, she comes off quite kind to someone who seemed unstable at best.

The clip is below and as you watch it see if it stimulates the same questions and comments it did in me. Questions and comments like:

Is this what passes for funny in Canada?

I do hope they get American cable.

Wow, Sarah Palin is truly being kind.

This is still not funny, I don’t know if I should feel sorry for this poor excuse for a comedian or the Canadian people.

Righttttttttt.

Ophelia and Laertes were produced by fission. Like bacteria.

And Polonius clearly knows nothing of love and romance:

Come, go with me: I will go seek the king.
This is the very ecstasy of love,
Whose violent property fordoes itself
And leads the will to desperate undertakings
As oft as any passion under heaven
That does afflict our natures. I am sorry.
What, have you given him any hard words of late?

To be honest, answering a question sincerely and not just assuming the person you’re talking to is lying to you does sound to me like “being kind.”

I believe this is a generational thing. Nowadays the youngs think nothing should be taken at face value. They think imagining duplicity as metaphysics makes them smart or something like cool.

Remember Juli’s wedding “prank” from during the week? The “prank” part was simply that people did’t assume they were being lied to as a default.

This is a generational thing.

There was a time–believe it or not, you youngs!–when in general people made an effort to say what they meant and the lying was confined to exceptional cases.

Sarah provides so many targets for ridicule I don’t see why anyone wants to riducle her for getting ambushed. Is anyone so fucking smart and so aware so perceptive they can see through every ambush?

The whole Juli generation is the smartest, sexiest generation ever. But there’s more to life than just not shooting wolves and moose from helicopters.

We don’t ridicule her for being ambushed and failing to sense it; we don’t ridicule the Canadian for insincerely ambushing her; we ridicule the canned answer that La Palinita gave, which was independent of how the question was asked.

We must hold politicians to a higher standard than the classic “It’s not how well the bear dances, it’s that the bear dances at all.”

Maybe you should really go back and read actual history of our country and more importantly read about the Progressive Movement that you ALL are so willing to follow. It started out as Eugenics – go ahead and Google it and read the truth about the people that you are blindly supporting.

Jim Morrison said it best…your all a bunch of fucking slaves and you don’t even know it!

Even the Onion couldn’t make the stuff Sarah “the Media Whore of Babble-On” Palin says and does.

from The Christian Science Monitor, 07/01/09:

‘In an interview with Runner’s World Sarah Palin was asked if she could beat the president (Obama)in a race. She replied, “What I lacked in physical strength or skill I made up for in determination and endurance. So if it were a long race that required a lot of endurance, I’d win.”’

You’re afraid you’ve become a slave but you can’t point the person who’s enslaved you. You’re sloppy use of language has led you to claim, in effect, you are a slave to your own imagined needs, since it’s your yearning for material possessions that compels you to spend your life making others rich.
and it makes you afraid that you are helpless against the power of your own greed, so you blame me.
That’s what makes you a conservative.

[re=467473]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Pain’s a subjective experience, which means you caused it. Nerve cells don’t cause pain, they elicit the signals which travel to your brain, which you then interpret as pain. Fire will sear the flesh right off your fingers if your CNS lacks the capability of transmitting the signals which tell you something’s burning. Nothing hurts unless you are there, so just remember it’s all your fault. Not God or impacted molars.
Tip: When your hammer accidentally hits your finger instead of a nail – rub or massage your finger, it’ll make it feel better. Why? Because you are ambushing some of those pain signals that were trying to reach your brain.

Freepers and RedStaters are always pulling that shit “libs don’t like Sarah because they’re AFRAID of her,” which is, of course, incorrect, never realizing they are projecting their own psychology about what drives and motivates them: fear.

For the edification of surfer and all the other trolls who lurk around here, Sarah doesn’t scare us one bit. She will never be president. She will most likely never even be the republican nominee (although we do wish that could happen.) We all have our various reasons for deriding and mocking her, but fear doesn’t come into it at all. For me, it’s just that she’s such a simpleton with a big ego, and I’ve always hated such persons. But I don’t fear her.

[re=467483]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Fear does “come into it”, but it is not the fear sane, intelligent people might have for the welfare of their country. It is Sarah Palin’s own fear. She can be called a quitter or a failure or a loser or a maverick or any other of many things, but pure and simple she is a coward.

There is no need here for the exhaustive listing of the litany of her cowardly actions, it is all public record. Let those who have eyes look and see; let those who have minds think. This person, this refugee from her own life, indeed will never be president. There is nothing she will not in some manner attempt to flee, except for the one thing she cannot escape — she is a coward at heart and there is nothing she or anyone else can do to change that.

It is ironic how everyone here is so eager to trash others…it is the Chicago way. Now we sit in a country where 85% of the general public are angry with the government. About 50% claim they are VERY ANGRY. Hope and change sure has worked.

This is exactly what happens when people enter a voting booth that have no idea what they are voting for. It is a disgrace. Voting in 2008 should be reclassified as a weapon of mass destruction.

We keep on this path and we will see forced conflict in this country and all of you voting with your heads up your arse are going to have to come to grips with the consequences of your foolish and reckless behavior.

Remember the GOP caused Obama, they are 100% to blame for Obama even existing today. Remember the next wave of politicians are going to swing back even harder and so on and so forth and for what good? So our country can be destroyed from within.

You need to truly understand what and who you are voting for and it absolutely makes NO SENSE whatsoever to vote for people that support a small fraction of our country it is a recipe for disaster.

The Progessives use ALL of you and the only payback you will receive is enslavement. Wake up, get some common sense and work to make this country better – stop insulting others, stop embracing the Chicago mob-style politics.

Are you any better off than a year ago? Do you actually believe anything that you are being told? Do you actually believe we are in a recovery? Do you actually believe there can be a recovery without jobs? Have you read about the Great Depression?
