Sarah Palin Wanted You To Watch Ladies’ Hockey Today. Did You?

by Jim Newell

Hmm. Well hopefully Sarah Palin took enough notes during the parts of the health care summit that she did watch, so that her conversation about it with Sean Hannity tonight can be as fact-based and productive as expectations would have us believe. [Twitter]

Might I suggest a compromise Thunderjuggs, er, former Governor Palin? Next time let’s try to stay informed on political issues (switch!) and I’ll send someone over to cane you with a hockey stick while you study. Would ya like that? Huh? Would ya?

Magnus Maximus February 25, 2010 at 7:30 pm

She’ll say it was wrong for Obama to be mean to the doddering old war hero Mccain. But then, that’s sort of the behavior you expect from a guy who will so flagrantly put his feet up on the white folks’ furniture.

MzNicky February 25, 2010 at 7:32 pm

Were they moms? Were they wearing lipstick? No? Then they were pit bulls, right? Or something?

Watchin’ all that death panelly stuff when there’s hockey on the other channel is just so retarded, doncha know.

shorthand of twitter speak was inspired by sarah? she obviously has a risc based intellect. already she is dumbing us down, is possible?

Jim89048 February 25, 2010 at 7:50 pm

Damn Hopey, cancelling out a hockey game just like he wanted to do to “Lost”. Man’s got no class.

Her Twitter posts really lack the verve and snap we had come to expect now that Meg “Meg” Stapleton quit to be with her not-retard baby.

Katydid February 25, 2010 at 7:55 pm

I swear to fucking God I always have to read her tweets 3 goddammed times to get what she’s trying to say. At first I thought AK was referring to rifles. If James Joyce was still alive, he would kill himself over her tweets.

[re=520362]obfuscator[/re]: When I worked for a teevee station in South Carolina, I was in the newsroom when a local reporter on the 6 pm news used “drug” as the past tense of “drag,” as in, “Police said he drug the body through his backyard,” and the news director came running out of his office toward the studio, yelling, “I’ve told her about that.” It was pretty funny.

Did Nell “Tey Ina Win” become her new spokesperson?

AnnieGetYourFun February 25, 2010 at 7:57 pm

Jesus, no spaces after full stops, but plenty of characters left over to hyphenate USA? Fuck, I hate this woman on so many levels.

bitchincamaro February 25, 2010 at 7:58 pm

Of course I’m watching Ladies Hockey! I love it when some broad gets called for “hooking” and has to go in the “box” for two minutes. Slippery streetwalkers! Haha.

Escape Goat Nation February 25, 2010 at 7:58 pm

Shut up dumb lady.

populucious February 25, 2010 at 8:01 pm

Sarah Palin is a new breed of Mavricky Politician (dare I say the Platonic Mavricky Politician) who wants nothing more than to eliminate all that boring “politics” from politics and replace it with stuff peoples really care about, like…hockey? Ok, well sports…she wants to replace it with sports.

weejee February 25, 2010 at 8:05 pm

[re=520362]obfuscator[/re]: Are you sure she isn’t showing a little butch and using it as a noun, and then wouldn’t be a tweet-twat thingie. Hockey sticks, guns, … just sayin.

Hey America…here’s a nice shiny thing for you. Turn off that nasty old politics stuff.


comicbookguy February 25, 2010 at 8:17 pm

Allow me to translate from Palinese:

“I own 23 AKs, will play the war card w/Canada. 2day cheer 4 Red (blood) White (all over snow) Blue (cuz its cold!). Drag away (corpses). Note: “#” means no serial #s on AKs LOL”

Watch out, Iran!

She probably thinks Obamacare is the official name for it.

Hooray For Anything February 25, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Pffft….like anyone on Fox is required to watch or read about what they’re talking about before-hand.

Berkeley Bear February 25, 2010 at 8:32 pm

The hilarious part? The US-Canada game started at 6 eastern. The HCR summit ended an hour before. So she’s either incapable of reading TV listings (which explains the Couric answer) or even she realized the GOP “leaders” were circling the drain and lied to try and get people to stop watching. Wonder how pissed they were to see the ends of the Sweden-Finland Bronze Medal match?

Berkeley Bear February 25, 2010 at 8:35 pm

Game just went final 2-0 for the Canadians. Good thing, too – I think the Canadian fans would have torn the place down if the womens team lost to the US after the men got housed a couple of days ago.

bitchincamaro February 25, 2010 at 8:36 pm

[re=520374]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: Total win for that Jodie Foster reference. I always wondered how to spell “Tey Ina Win”! Hey, maybe that’s what that retard was screaming, “Total Win!”. No?

Escape Goat Nation February 25, 2010 at 8:37 pm

Well Sarah, thanks a fucking lot. Ak’s own #23 screwed up so badly that Canada won 2-0.
Hope you’re happy now!

She missed a chance to accuse Obama of lying about death panels? I miss Meg already.

Naked Bunny with a Whip February 25, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Is it topless women’s hockey? I’d watch topless women’s hockey, if only to see someone’s eye poked out by a rock-hard protrusion. Same reason why I watch bottomless men’s wrestling.

Dolmance February 25, 2010 at 8:55 pm

That cunt.

“Watch Women’s Olympic Hockey” wasn’t written on my hand, so I forgot to watch.

That’s like the U.S. crying if they lost to the Italians in Spaghetti bending or Pizza tossing.

“Hmm. Well hopefully Sarah Palin took enough notes during the parts of the health care summit that she did watch, so that her conversation about it with Sean Hannity tonight can be as fact-based and productive as expectations would have us believe.”

This made me laugh so hard I spit my cheap beer out of my runny nose. Now THAT is funny stuff!

Scooter February 25, 2010 at 9:30 pm

If Epic Fail were an Olympic event, Palin would be ass-deep in gold medals.

BarackMyWorld February 25, 2010 at 9:32 pm

To summarize Palin’s appearance on Hannity tonight (from what I saw of it, which she didn’t see all of the summit, so who cares?):
Alternate between whining about the process and lying about the content.

Well, like everything else Palin touches, it ended disappointedly less than half-way through.

Jukesgrrl February 25, 2010 at 9:56 pm

[re=520407]loquaciousmusic[/re]: I prefer “Half-Governor.” It’s more mavericky. Although she would probably spell it “Haf-Guvnor.”

Mr Blifil February 25, 2010 at 10:08 pm

She spent the whole game asking where the death panel-ty box was.

I wonder if she watched the USA/Canada hockey game from a porch in Russia. You can see it from there, you know.

Escape Goat Nation February 25, 2010 at 10:38 pm

Which is weird since she likes all of the Hockey teams.

sati demise February 25, 2010 at 11:14 pm

[re=520432]BarackMyWorld[/re]: why should she give a flying fuck about health insurance?

She has had government health insurance her whole entire life.
father – teacher
husband – Native
job – government
kid – disability

She has 4 more options than tens of millions of Americans will ever have..

Watch the hockey game you narcissist . It will never impact your little world

Oh, Sarah, honey… airheads like you will always shy away from policy discussions and go for entertainment (sports is entertainment). That’s what you do. Stick to that.

At least watching hockey keeps you away from the cameras. You should concentrate on watching hockey, drinking beer, going at it with Todd on the couch and then passing out until the kids wake you up. stay away from trying to be a politician. It just doesn’t work for you.

[re=520403]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: Ugh. 2-zip Canada. Those ‘merikan gals are just plain disgusted with themselves, and I don’t blame them. That medal ceremony, shown in full super=slo=mo on CTV (Canadacity TeeVee) was painful to watch. Those Yanks are the un-happiest silver medalists I’ve ever seen. They choked.

rocktonsammy February 26, 2010 at 12:51 am

She forgot to mention Trig.

[re=520478]rocktonsammy[/re]: Troops, also.

SayItWithWookies February 26, 2010 at 1:40 am

[re=520399]Berkeley Bear[/re]: Actually, the timing makes sense when you understand what Palin was up to. See, 6pm here is 3pm Pacific time. So what she did was, she brought a clock-radio from Juneau to her FOX office in New York, planning on tuning in at three (like, how would the clock-radio know it wasn’t in Juneau anymore?) and catching the result of the game an hour before it started here, and then cleaning up in the office pool. Unfortunately the reception wasn’t so good, but she hopes to have that fixed before the men’s medal game.

tonashideska February 26, 2010 at 1:52 am

Palin watched MSNBC?

Extemporanus February 26, 2010 at 2:04 am

Off topic: Has anyone else…actually, you know what? Scratch that…

ON topic: Has anyone else been violated tonight by a small Siemens poll?

“How favorably do you view Siemens? Inquiring assholes want to know.”

El Pinche February 26, 2010 at 2:09 am

No mention of the troops? Palin is a Nazi commie lesbian.

Lionel Hutz Esq. February 26, 2010 at 4:10 am

[re=520437]Jukesgrrl[/re]: I’ve always liked “The Honorable Quitter from Alaska.”

[re=520489]El Pinche[/re]: I’m sure Sarah would quickly point out that by point our her lack of support for the troops, you are not supporting the troops. Or the developmentally disabled. All of them. Also.

lochnessmonster February 26, 2010 at 6:41 am

If she is a hockey mom, why isn’t Bristol on that team? Or that other daughter she drags all across the country rather than keeping her in school so she gets an education?

President Beeblebrox February 26, 2010 at 7:24 am

Go on and cheer the U-S-A failmonkeys!

Seriously, that was an awful game. The Murrikans totally choked, got demolished, and then cried over it at the end.

Probably not as hard as the Bulgarian womens’ team did after being beaten 82-0 by the Slovaks, though.

The funny thing is, it’s kind of looking like another US-Canada City matchup for the gold medal, unless the gay liberal Communist free health insurance-having Finns beat US America, or the gay liberal socialist free health-insurance having Slovaks beat Canada City.

gurukalehuru February 26, 2010 at 7:27 am

Unfortunately, despite the steaming idiocy of ignoring the Health Care Summit to watch womens’ roller derby on ice, not using the correct tense of the verb “drag,” and getting the time wrong which means that she was flat out lying, this will play well with her base.
The fact that we lost the game she can blame on Obama.

plowman February 26, 2010 at 7:36 am

I can’t wait for her ridiculous political aspirations to finally and pathetically die so Larry Flynt can pay her couple of million for the photos we all are dying to see. She’s a smart cookie, maybe that’s been her end game all along, bush for bucks, like in the free market thing don’cha know!

Berkeley Bear February 26, 2010 at 9:33 am

[re=520543]Gregoire[/re]: Yeah, you’d think even her die hard knuckleheads would notice that after a while.

Then again, since they think the fact our President can extemporaneously hand every “leader” of the GOP their lunch on TV for six plus hours is a mark of either his “uppityness” or “stupidity” (because like lots of really smart people he likes to get his words right, rather than not being careful or throwing out soundbites, so he has pauses and verbal filler while composing his response), maybe not. How long would SP have lasted in that setting? 5 minutes past her scripted opening statement?

The Sea Farmer February 26, 2010 at 9:45 am

only two mentions of USA and one Red,White&Blue?

She is slipping. I get at least 5 America mentions in per tweet.
