SHE'S JUST BEING DEMOCRATIC!  11:58 am January 14, 2010

Sarah Palin’s Favorite Founding Father Is, Naturally, ‘All Of Them’

by Juli Weiner


So, here’s this new Sarah Palin thing, in which, miraculously she is unable to name a founding father and eventually settles on George Washington, America’s first non-Ronald Reagan President. Glenn Beck (rightly!) gets to feel superior. Absolutely heartbreaking. [The Awl]

Her heart and her brain must be so big to fit all of everything in them. All Founding Fathers are her, like, totes faves, and, remember, she reads every single newspaper on the planet each day.

She is more evolved than all of us. Also.

Crank Tango January 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Perhaps she is envisioning a “founding father” “gang bang”…not so fast, Thomas Paine.

hedgehog January 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Damn, I was hoping she’d say Sherman Helmsley.

Cicada January 14, 2010 at 12:08 pm

If there’s one thing ol’ Bitchy Bottom Beck hates, it’s feeling superior. Bad misstep, Sarah-bear.

gurukalehuru January 14, 2010 at 12:08 pm

In her defense, many people who are well versed in the history of the time would rate him as #1. I’m not saying she’s not stupid, just that this doesn’t really qualify as proof.
Ask her about her favorite Civil War general or her favorite Suffragette, then we’ll see the stupid fly, boy howdy.

nbawriter January 14, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Seriously, who fucked her brains out?

thefrontpage January 14, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Later in the interview, Shreck asked Payin who her favorte porn stars are.

“All of them!” she said, adding, “Ron Jeremy, John Holmes and Jenna Jameson are personal favorites, though.”

user-of-owls January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

All of them? Even William Whipple?

forgracie January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

This is gonna go on for a while isn’t it? I mean, every time she opens her pie hole we’re gonna see a clip aren’t we?

Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffin’ glue.

thefrontpage January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

Sherman Helmsley for President!

Radiotherapy January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

I’m surprised she didn’t answer, “Just read my book, it’s in there. And the real Merikun people don’t give a crap about that anyhow.”

DoktorZoom January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

With these unfair “gotcha” questions, Glenn Beck proves himself to be just another of those MSM liberals.

SayItWithWookies January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

She’s so precious. Sarah honey, don’t ever get smart.

Kodos January 14, 2010 at 12:10 pm

So it’s come to this: Glenn Beck asking ‘gotcha’ questions to Sarah Palin.

Oldskool January 14, 2010 at 12:11 pm

“Bullcrap”? What a potty mouth.

CrunchyKnee January 14, 2010 at 12:11 pm

SHE DIDN’T SAY JESUS!!!!!????11/!!??

El Pinche January 14, 2010 at 12:12 pm

First off, you libtards need to know the difference between fair/balanced and gotcha journaljizm:

Not gotcha: Who’s your favorite founder?

Gotcha: Who’s your favorite McDonald’s clown?

RoscoePColtraine January 14, 2010 at 12:14 pm

Glenn Beck is now asking Sarah Palin “gotcha” questions. Let’s hope the lib’rul media leaves her alone this time, god fucking dammit.

JMP January 14, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Man, Sarah’s gotten so infamously pathetic in interviews that now even she herself is mocking her.

When Glenn Beck gets to feel superior to you, and has good reason to do so, it’s beyond pathetic into just shoot yourself territory.

Prommie January 14, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Beck’s been watching Inside the Actor’s Studio. I would like to have seen her answer the old “What is your favorite word” question.

She literally glows with relief that she was able to remember Washington, after stalling for so long with that “they came together, collectively, they came together, but diversely, forwarding the the collective unity of this great precious freedom-lovin’ land, with their diverse diversity, but together, collectively,” while her brain sputtered and strained to come up with a founder’s name, and finally the flash, and a huge wave of relief as the panic recedes and she recovers with “but Washington, of course, rises above their together collective diverse freedom-lovin’ great diversity.”

donner_froh January 14, 2010 at 12:15 pm

I don’t think anyone expected much better but her inability to deal with the softest of softball questions is surprising.

Next she will be stumped by the question, “What is your favorite color?”

RoscoePColtraine January 14, 2010 at 12:18 pm

George Washington went back to his farm, presumably to pick peas and make moonshine. But, I’d have to say Jefferson was my favorite because he was a sexy ginger KNOWN to have fucked anything that moved…which means I might have had a chance.

Dumptruck January 14, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Her Second favorite founding father is of course, Abraham Lincoln

Lorax January 14, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Watching an interview with her is like watching oral comprehensive exams for a marginal student. One who you KNOW didn’t do the reading, but did attend class and listen for buzz words to repeat back.

Beck, of course, is the (untenured) faculty member who has tried unsuccessfully to bang her since she was a freshman, now hoping against hope for a final chance to hit that before she graduates.

Ahh, edjumacation…

RoscoePColtraine January 14, 2010 at 12:20 pm

One more thing…

I believe this FOX News gig is going to be lovely for Carribou Barbie. Please let her keep talking.

El Pinche January 14, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Looks like they’ll have to interview her via facebook messages.

Of course ,CNN will keep close track of the facebook communication between Palin and FoxNews and send us CNN breaking news twatters.

teebob2000 January 14, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Look on her face was priceless; hardly expected a ‘zinger’ from Beck!! And that he would call her out is equally priceless.

What a coupla asshats.

CaliforniaMike January 14, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Diversity? The Founding Fathers were known for their diversity?

That means my college fraternity of all-white, non-Jewish guys must have been incredibly diverse. Yay!

Gopherit January 14, 2010 at 12:26 pm

When is someone going to ask her about her LEAST favorite things?

El Pinche January 14, 2010 at 12:27 pm

[re=494640]donner_froh[/re]: “What’s your favorite color?”

Of course, she’ll respond with “all of them.” Anybody knows that all the colors together equals black. So her favorite color is black. which makes her a “moslem”-lover. All this will make better sense on Beck’s chalkboard.

schvitzatura January 14, 2010 at 12:28 pm

How this tundra hobbit can hold Alexander Hamilton and Tom Jefferson in the same regard…blasphemous!

She probably feels the same about the “Koreas”…”I like them all”!

Gopherit January 14, 2010 at 12:28 pm

[re=494649]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: You know what her favorite series of questions will be ?(and, no, not the obv. “All of them” answer.)
Everytime she wnts to go for the throat, it’ll be a “What/who is your favorite ______?”

Lascauxcaveman January 14, 2010 at 12:28 pm

[re=494640]donner_froh[/re]:

Q. What’s your favorite color?
Sarah: “All of em!”

Q. What’s your favorite breed of working dog?

Gopherit January 14, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Having Beck laugh at you. That has to hurt. Also, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we can’t see her ear. There has to be an earpiece there.

RoscoePColtraine January 14, 2010 at 12:31 pm

[re=494653]Long Form Def Certificate[/re]: I just love how Sarah waxes romantic with the notion of Washington retiring to his “farm,” as if he was up every mornin’ at the crack-o-dawn to slop the hawgs and milk the cows. She really doesn’t realize retiring to his farm has a slightly different meaning for a patrician with dozens of servants and slaves. No sir, none of that elitist bullshit in Sarah’s imagination please.

Prommie January 14, 2010 at 12:32 pm

[re=494656]CaliforniaMike[/re]: Sure they were diverse; some believed an owner was free to beat or even kill his slaves, while others held he had to have good reason.

KristaJulieva January 14, 2010 at 12:32 pm

It’s funny that Alexander Hamilton (my favorite) is included in her all-encompassing list, since a backwater populist demagogue like her is exactly what he had hoped to keep out of the political process.

Prommie January 14, 2010 at 12:33 pm

[re=494657]Gopherit[/re]: The answer would be “when the dog bites, when the bee stings,” of course.

TGY January 14, 2010 at 12:34 pm

[re=494621]gurukalehuru[/re]: Correct. Though, actually, I don’t know the names of any Suffragettes, or didn’t remember Susan B. Anthony was one (from the failed quarter).

ella January 14, 2010 at 12:34 pm

I’ll bet the thing she likes best about this gig — after the money — is having somebody to do her hair and makeup again. Why not? Shallow sells, at least with that crowd.

slithytoves January 14, 2010 at 12:36 pm

That was just a little bit of lovely for my day, thank you Wonkette, however, I think Sarah will not last long on Fox News becuase when it’s bull crap to Beck, you’ve gone as low as you can, and she will quit that humiliation faster than you can say, well, err, “I quit.”

Ducksworthy January 14, 2010 at 12:38 pm

[re=494633]Oldskool[/re]: BullKrap! Glenn said BullKrap to the Queen of Conservatism. Just because she has no idea who the founding fathers were. She could have named at least two founders, (all cats are grey in the dark) Ben Franklin and Jeebus. That would have illustrated the point about diversity, diverseness and diversiveness she was trying to make and also.

Way Cool Larry January 14, 2010 at 12:38 pm

It’s really incredible how many dicks she sucked in high school and college. And the right dicks too! The ones that were going places and would drag her with.

(Oh man if I posted this on Jezebel.)

Lascauxcaveman January 14, 2010 at 12:39 pm

[re=494652]teebob2000[/re]: … and Beck towards the end there nodding his head slowly, thinking “Christ. She’s soooo stupid. But I STILL wanna bone her. How do I get from here to there.”

Sarah Palin is very well diversed in all aspects of American history.

O_o January 14, 2010 at 12:44 pm

You can see her whole “Miss Alaska” training in action: while her brain is trying to think of a single founding father – ANY founding father – her mouth is buying her time with the whole “so much diverse opinion… and so much divers… ity, in terms of belief… but collectively they came together…” then AH (I got it!) how about George Washington!

*facepalm*

Franklin Pierce & Pierce January 14, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Are you angry, white and ignorant? Do you feel like an oppressed minority simply because a fraction of the population does not share the same religion as you? Are you reeling from economic hardship brought on by 8 years of a Republican President you voted for? Are you against Universal Healthcare that could save the lives of you and your family?

Then this is your lady!

geminisunmars January 14, 2010 at 12:44 pm

[re=494662]Gopherit[/re]: Earpiece explains it best. If she had her back to us at any point we would’ve seen the receiver, like we did during Bush’s “debate”. I can just hear her trainer screaming into her ear “George Washington, you moran!”

I bet Palin was primed to remember a sentence about Washington, but wasn’t ready for Beck’s lead-in. In other words, Palin is not a bright as she looks in this clip.

The Church of Realism January 14, 2010 at 12:47 pm

The best part after “all of ‘em” was watching the gears slowly grind away as the word jumble continued to pour forth until she managed to spit out George Washington.

1. As you said, they want her to look like an dumbass.
2. They are as stupid as she is.
3. Or they could also have Carl Cameron ask her the same questions two days from now after she has been spoon-fed some answers. Then she’ll mention Whipple, Samuel Adams (not the shitty beer), etc. After all, her idiot savant talent is regurgitating lame political jargon.

Joshua Norton January 14, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Sarah waxes romantic with the notion of Washington retiring to his “farm,”

The reality of it is that he wanted to do more interior decorating at Mount Vernon and go out dancing. Not to mention that he and Martha didn’t have any children. Add the fact that he loved to design his own uniforms and Georgie sounds awfully light in the shoe buckles to me.

An open letter to Sarah Palin (in case she lurks Wonkette)

Dear Sarah,
There are two questions where you will find “all of them” is an acceptable answer.

1.) Of all your children, who is your favorite?
2.) Of all your grandchildren, who is your favorite?

Please try to keep this in mind, as I am truly trying to help. YOUR WELCOME.

Trick question. The greatest Founding Father is clearly The Father, God. Also acceptable: His friendly customer service representative, Jesus.

How can she support a bunch of long-haired liberals living on the east coast, growing hemp and complaining about “King George?”

What’s your favorite Sarah Palin video? All of them!

Pithaughn January 14, 2010 at 2:17 pm

[re=494779]BlueStateLibtard[/re]: Well, some wore wigs, some did not. Some had ridiculous patterns of facial hair and some had a gay stylist and looked slightly less hirsute. Some had calf skin footwear and some preferred tanned deer hide. Some strongly believed there should be no mention of a state sponsored religion and some somewhat strongly believed there should be no mention of a state sponsored religion, in the constitution. Some were pasty white complected and some were ruddy white tanned complected.

Joshua Norton January 14, 2010 at 2:20 pm

As I recall, that was an actual question on a Civics test I took back in 6th grade. I wonder if “all of them” would have gotten me an A? I wonder if they still teach Civics.

Harvey Birdman January 14, 2010 at 2:21 pm

[re=494730]Joshua Norton[/re]: Larry Kramer is pretty adamant on that point.

The girl should stick to jobs like Governor, that do not require being a trivia expert.

But man she blew it. Correct answer: Vitus Bering. That would have set off fireworks.

I’ll bet Ben Franklin would have knocked up one of her daughters.

Way Cool Larry January 14, 2010 at 2:31 pm

[re=494729]Radiotherapy[/re]: yeah, maybe they are setting her up for the soft bigotry of low expectations for her preznit run when she starts talking semi-coherently.

[re=494719]Guppy06[/re]: Maybe, but I hear Button Gwinnett piloted a mean skiff.

BeWoot January 14, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Oh, you guys beat me to it. The correct answer is, obviously, Button Gwinnet.
That woman is such a bozo. And Beck is a flaming shitheel. Gwinnet, though, a veritable Cincinnatus.

Mista Eko January 14, 2010 at 2:53 pm

The best part is that George Washington did virtually nil in terms of the actual founding and political grunt work. He was goaded by Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson et al (the real founding fathers) to serve as the Constitutional Convention Chairman and then as President because they realized nobody would hate a military hero.

Though I can see why she would be high on the President that retired because he couldn’t stand the job anymore…

snideinplainsight January 14, 2010 at 2:58 pm

So editors, what happened to all those gushy we-love-Sarah blogs that came out when she ran? “The Knights of Palin” and all that? Have they come to the conclusion yet that she’s never going to be president, and is basically just going for the cash?

Long Form Def Certificate January 14, 2010 at 3:07 pm

[re=494682]O_o[/re]: At some point, Wonkette is going to have to come out with the pageant-era nudes. Put the final fail in the public life of Sarah Palin.

Of course, not that nudes have hurt the GOP Senate candidate in Massachusetts. But we have to try.

Flanders January 14, 2010 at 3:11 pm

It was kept in, because Beck sees her as a threat to his own political ambitions. They will tear each other apart, live on FOX News, in a grand battle for supremacy of the conservative mind. This is a good thing, for the troops.

desertwind January 14, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Her little paid contributions are going to be so fly!

Heavily edited with music & lotsa jumpin’ around & regular people and everythin’

Flanders January 14, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Beck covers his mouth the entire time, to keep from laughing out loud at her.

Sarah Palin’s Favorite Founding Father Is, Naturally, ‘All Of Them’

Help. Well, she exceeded my expectations. I thought my expectations could not possibly have been too low.

Lionel Hutz Esq. January 14, 2010 at 3:52 pm

Palin learned about all of our Founders when she read all of the History books.

Darkness January 14, 2010 at 3:53 pm

[re=494801]Min[/re]: Ben Franklin would have knocked up Sarah and Todd’s mothers.

EdFlinstone January 14, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Well snowbilly thinks Alaska has diversity so its no wonder she thinks a bunch of white guys were diverse.

ithasatilde January 14, 2010 at 3:56 pm

[re=494848]Flanders[/re]: This. Also, because Sarah Palin is actually a liberal undercover agent and he knows it. Seriously, no one could be that stupid, and, when you think about it, can you remember a time where you have seen Sarah Palin NOT wearing red?

My real question concerns the other 95% of the interview, where she tries to get into his pants for an hour. How does Beck’s one true love, Michael Bublé, feel about all this? Concerned? Relieved that he has an excuse to get out? Jealous that he’s not the only one that can get away with calling Glenn “a piece of sexual chocolate” on cable news?

EdFlinstone January 14, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Dont Blame Sarah!!!!!!! Todd has banged that empty noggin off the headboard a few thousand times causing permanent brain damage.

[re=494785]Pithaughn[/re]: But did any of them pose nude for Playgirl?

Katydid January 14, 2010 at 4:08 pm

The clip was cut off too early. This was the rest of Sarah’s quote, defending her commonsense conservative principled inability to name a favorite FF:

I personally believe that US Americans are unable to single out a single Founding Father because some people out there in Our Nation don’t have Founding Fathers, and, uh, I believe that our edumacation, such as Alaska, and everywhere like, such as, and, I believe that they should, our edumacation over here in the US should help the US, or should help Alaska, and should help the Christian countries, so that we will be able to build up our future. George Washington!!!

Also, too, I think Beck’s got his special panties in a wad, because Sarah’s getting all the attention these days, and he’s out to sabotage her by asking the tough questions. And that is no snark.

Katydid January 14, 2010 at 4:21 pm

And you damn libruls are missing the real reason Sarah chose GW (not the bridge). He had the most guns, and the one with the most guns always wins. True Fact.

JSDC007 January 14, 2010 at 4:39 pm

But I bet she could tell you who her favorite character from the Brady Bunch was.

A. Because, when you put them all together they make a rainbow, and that’s God’s promise to Noah after the Flood.

[re=494621]gurukalehuru[/re]: Not debating GW as #1 Supreme High Founding Father, but based on the fact that she stammered like I used to in HIgh School for two minutes before throwing it out makes me think think she just got lucky with the first name that popped in her head…

JimmysDad January 14, 2010 at 6:25 pm

[re=494673]Way Cool Larry[/re]: I totally agree! O’Reilly spent their first five minutes together trying to make her look stupid before he started begging for a golden shower. It’s always the conflicted ones that end up involved in domestic terrorism, oh wait…

i lover her “diverse opinion…diver sity” hahahaa, please run for president

rocktonsammy January 14, 2010 at 9:01 pm

Fox News poll shows that 122% of the viewers agree with Palin’s answer, “all of them.”

CanadianBacon January 14, 2010 at 10:46 pm

Every minute of Sarah’s time on Fox before she quits will be like this. She gains popularity from these displays of her ability. These are the opening shots in the war on the “educated class”. Soon “educated” will replace “liberal” as a pejorative. Nothing that is shown on Fox is by accident, it is all scripted.

How do you morans expect Sarah to know anything about the founding fathers when she wasn’t even born yet.

I just wish she take all the ‘real Amerikans’ with her back to Wasilla.
