IT'S MORNING IN AMERICA  9:15 am March 21, 2011

Idiots Abroad: Palin Freak Show Tours India, Israel

by Riley Waggaman

now comes with Real Foreign Policy Experience

  • Good morning, warmongers! Sunday marked eight years of Mission Accomplished in Iraq, and also the beginning of a fun new war in a different oil-rich nation, “Africa,” or something. We have been refreshing our RSS feed every thirty seconds for the last two hours, searching for some cheery news — “Barack Obama wins another Nobel Peace Prize,” etc. — but sorry, there is none! If it makes you feel any better, Sarah Palin and her husband went bra-shopping at Forever 21 during a historic visit to one of New Delhi’s most fanciful strip malls. She also told India that “it is time for a woman to become president.” (Why does Sarah Palin want to be president of India? Also: why is Hillary Clinton saying similar things?) Today Palin is in Jerusalem, courting the Zion Elders. Stories about oil spills and U.S. soldiers posing with murdered Afghan civilians after the jump! [The Caucus]
  • There’s probably another oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico! [WSJ]
  • Here is an informative liveblog, if for some reason you want to stay updated on our latest War. [The Guardian]

Is Palin still calling all the Indians 'Chief'?

dahboner March 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

Hey Red Dot!

Lost_Teabaggers March 21, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Yes and she even greeted them with "Me Sarah, good white Christian woman, how Redskin?" Yes, I can't believe she was allowed to travel…talk about harming our image to the world. Can't we add "irretrievably stupid" to our list of bullshit reasons to be placed on the no-fly list? It may be big government (BAD!) but if it can keep the likes of Palin, Bachmann, Angle, Beck, the Teabaggers et. al. from flying abroad and giving perfectly normal people a good reason to kill Americans, that's protecting national security idn't it?

Negropolis March 21, 2011 at 11:03 pm

No, I think she's just calling them all "Apu", even the womenfolk.

Poor Maggie "There is no such thing as society" Thatcher; suffering nearly the same fate that her neo-con president across the pond did.

jus_wonderin March 21, 2011 at 10:54 am

I once owned a 1975 Indira Gandhi. Was nice and really sipped the fuel.

Lost_Teabaggers March 21, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Hey now…just because Indira Gandhi utilized the Emergency Laws to cancel Indian democracy for 5 years and won her party a permanent minority (yes, only she could make the name Gandhi unpopular) doesn't mean Sarah Palin is similar, right? I mean…Indira Gandhi at least didn't ask other Indians "where's your feather head dresses and squaws at?" when she was trying to make polite conversation off the plane….

ManchuCandidate March 21, 2011 at 9:19 am

It might be time for a female preznit, but not a really stupid pinheaded pathetic one like Wasiller Upfister Grifter.

Somewhere the ghost of Indira Gandhi laughs at her.

BerkeleyBear March 21, 2011 at 9:55 am

And Benazir Bhutto wonders why she got blown up but Palin's still around.

When Moses was on the mountain, God said Moses could only look at God's unclothed butt. If Moses saw Sarah's unclothed butt, would Moses' eyes melt like the Nazis' eyes in Raiders of the Lost Ark? I hope so!

did Sarah Palin even know that current President of India is a female???

and btw that office is only figurehead,, the power rest in PM Manmohan Singh, which many Teabaggers will mistake for a Moslem for his headgear….

“it is time for a woman to become president.”

Well, the way things are these days, it would be much more appropriate that we elect a good Jewish mother, like Golda Meir, not some dozy cunt.

Dear India and Israel;

Please remember that Sarah Palin is a private citizen and that her actions and statements do not reflect the views of the vast majority of United States citizens.

GOPCrusher March 21, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Saw an AP story on Yahoo on her little junket that started "Sarah Palin, a US politician" which caused the comments section to light up pointing out the fact that Bible Spice in no way represents the United States in any official capacity.
I still would like to see the IRS show up when she comes back to the States with a subpeona to investigate who exactly funded this little trip out of the country. Or does Southwest Airlines have some kind of deal where people with no jobs can fly to India for free?
Or maybe that's what they meant when they advertised "Bags Fly Free"?

WriteyWriterton March 21, 2011 at 3:12 pm

"Bags fly free." Especially bags of rat-membered opportunists.

Also: Waylon is dead? I haz a sad.

trampndirtdown March 21, 2011 at 9:49 am

It gets better, she got to the Wailing Wall and said it is so good to touch the cornerstone of our faith. Wait what she's a Jew now? I guess it's a relief to know that not only is she ignorant of world history and politics but she can't keep her SkyGod fairy tales straight either.

Is it true that she ordered a hamburger in India and a cheeseburger in Israel?

So The Ugly American is still timely.

BerkeleyBear March 21, 2011 at 10:03 am

I don't know, but I will say from experience ordering a hamburger in the Raj is not as cuturally insensitive as you'd assume (there are places that have it on the menu, and its sort of a status thing to some) but not recommended (if you think American fast food has low meat standards, you haven't seen how livestock is raised in places like Trivandurum. The main ingredient in their diet is trash).

I can only imagine what she would have done if served a bowl of daal and some goat curry.

gef05 March 21, 2011 at 10:06 am

"a cheeseburger in Israel"

She kept asking for ribs.

Sarah if you wanted to plug you running for prez it would be clearer if you said

There are female leaders at the national level around the world – oh, but I guess you'd need a basic understanding of foreign affairs to know that, and to avoid saying such meaningless statements.

I'm paraphrasing here, but someone from the committee that invited Palin to this event told a reporter "Oh, we don't really want to hear about her ideas… we're just hoping for some juicy faux pas."

"Ms. Palin and her husband, Todd, were in India for such a short time that they did not get a chance to see the Taj Mahal, in part because it is closed on Fridays, the only day they had free time. Instead, according to local media reports, they went to one of New Delhi’s glitzy new shopping malls."

Yeah, why attempt to experience or learn about the history and culture of an unfamiliar locale when you can just buy cheap shit at a shopping mall? She's the epitome of an ugly American tourist.

It's also time for a competent individual who can solve problems to be president. But we haven't had one of those in a few decades.

I'm generally/blissfully ignorant of Christian doctrine, but I'm pretty sure JC didn't advocate the gospel of know-nothing resentment. His disciples, on the other hand, seem to specialize in it.

Just watch Palin come back with a bunch of mangled Yiddishisms she'll offer up on her Fox News "analysis." But will she learn "Geh cocken affem yam?"

Nopantsmcgee March 21, 2011 at 10:13 am

You just know when she got to New Delhi she complimented the "indians" for their cherished tradition of using all parts of the buffalo.

In the past decade the India Today “conclave,” as the conference is called, has played host to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Colin Powell, Pakistan’s Pervez Musharraf and Benazir Bhutto, the writer V.S. Naipaul, Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai and the Queen of Jordan, among others.

And now, this twat. Way to lower the intellectual bar, India.

I bet they thought she was going to be the entertainment…Charlie Sheen was unavailable.

Naipaul & Palin would seem to get on swimmingly.

You dear girl, I've no idea if that phrase has filthy connotations in the Old Country, but if not, allow me please to continue assuming that it does.

That is the way I meant it to sound.

CrankyLttlCamperette March 21, 2011 at 10:33 am

I dunno. Does she have the same $800 Billion dollar trip planner that the Preznit used?

AutomaticPilot March 21, 2011 at 10:21 am

Given how many pageviews she generates for teh Wonkett, I'm $urprised $arah ha$n't demanded royaltie$ yet.

jus_wonderin March 21, 2011 at 11:01 am

Can you imagine the amount of victimization she could wring out of the postings and comments about her?

horsedreamer_1 March 21, 2011 at 11:23 am

Unsurprisingly, I prefer Ke$ha to $arah.

Even if the former does like to wake up & brush with a bottle of Jack Steuf.

Will Palin dance the hora with Netanyahu? Or, more Seussian, will the ho' horas 'hu?

hagajim March 21, 2011 at 10:23 am

Is she posing for pictures with a head on a pike…you know, for Wasilla.

DashboardBuddha March 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

Will she ride that New Delhi Freight Train?

Mahousu March 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

"There is no natural limit for United States and India relations," [Palin] said.

Is there any way to interpret this statement that does not involve fisting and goats?

[Palin added] “I’m so busy I don’t have the time to play some of the games these guys want to play.”

Evidently not.

PsycWench March 21, 2011 at 10:44 am

For instance, that game of learning how to deliver a coherent sentence.

At that high-end mall, the Palins were unable to find the New Deli they heard so much about.

DahBoner March 21, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Fortunately, they were still able to acquire a case of Dehli Belly in the food court…

Barbara_i March 21, 2011 at 10:35 am

I saw a picture of her in Israel already. Jesus, tap dancing Christ, she's wearing a star of David necklace.

Face it, she's just there to check out "The Challah Fame" She's pissed off at Paul Simon for using Bristol as his inspiration as the "roly-poly little bat-faced girl" in his work and she wants retribution. Watch your back, Garfunkle! The homecoming queen's got a gun!

hagajim March 21, 2011 at 10:36 am

went bra-shopping at Forever 21

First – Ugh…
Second – Shopping in Alaska must really be shitty if she has to fly to India to get to a Forever 21….
Third – Forever 21 for a bra? Really? Why not VS or somewhere like that….this fucktard can't even bra shop right.

elviouslyqueer March 21, 2011 at 10:50 am

Well, she could've gone sari shopping, but Sarah would likely think they looked too Muslim-y.

HistoriCat March 21, 2011 at 11:09 am

No, she just doesn't believe in apologies.

someone did remember to cc Israel, Likud and AIPAC that memo about how Sarah Palin is "woefully unqualified", right? Right…Hello?

horsedreamer_1 March 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

From the country that elected Bibi? Hardly.

Dudleydidwrong March 21, 2011 at 10:48 am

For the next stop on the world tour, why not drop the Wasilla Witch into Khadafi's compound in Libya. That'll solve two problems as he'll give up when he discovers what he's up against and he can keep Sarah as a consolation prize. Then drop Todd into the desert somewhere. I understand that, after a few days, a camel looks pretty good.

fuflans March 21, 2011 at 11:08 am

sarah, honey, you're pushing that 'forever' part of '21'.

Winnie_Cooper March 21, 2011 at 11:18 am

Would India or Israel like to keep her? (Yes, it is probably a stupid question, but a girl can dream.)

Today Palin is in Jerusalem, courting the Zion Elders.

How great that she spends about 48 hours in India and her first stop upon arrival? The closest, most upscale mall available!

You go, Lou Sarah. Show those Indians that a Real American puts her retail cravings above any mindless sightseeing or getting to know the people of India.

Oh, she went to India because she was PAID to go there. Now, I understand.

Guppy06 March 21, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Somehow, I get the feeling she'll come out of all this owning a new house on the West Bank.

BarackMyWorld March 21, 2011 at 1:50 pm

She also told India that “it is time for a woman to become president.”

Is Nancy Pelosi running?

Beowoof March 21, 2011 at 2:16 pm

I heard Todd was pissed the whole trip, not a bacon cheeseburger to be found anywhere.

Snarke_Diem March 21, 2011 at 3:05 pm

And Todd was expecting that in Israel, it'd be really easy to get pork products.

mourningnmerica March 21, 2011 at 3:50 pm

Sarah was so moved by her Israel trip and subsequent spiritual awakening, that she has filed papers to change her name to Sarah Palinstine. Wait…

MiniMencken March 21, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Well, maybe the Israelis will be able to make a little chicken soup out of this freier.

DREGstudios March 21, 2011 at 7:15 pm

For the first time in her life, Palin will leave our continent in pursuit of spreading her insane and violent rhetoric to another part of the world. What impression will the most vane and vile political figure of our time leave on the people of other countries? You can see my portrait and commentary on the effects of her absurd ranting on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/sarah-

mayor_quimby March 21, 2011 at 11:04 pm

Note the wording in her quote here:
“It’s overwhelming to be able to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith,” Palin told reporters upon exiting the tunnels. “I’m so thankful to be able to be here, and I’m thankful to know the Israel American link connection will grow and strengthen as the peace negotiations will continue.”

She says ISRAEL AMERICAN link connection (she even fucked that up), meaning us Jeebus lovin' Americans have a bond with the land of Israel, we never said shit about caring about actual Israelis. We just need you to stir some shit up and get this armageddon started! Raise the roof of the temple!
Can you get a degree in secret Christian speak? Maybe I can get a scholarship.
