BREAKING Newsweek Cover Story: Sarah Palin Still Not Running

  hypotheticals

that's sexistWe applaud Newsweek on the headline “I Can Win” for their cover story about Sarah Palin, a person who is not actually in competition for anything and does not care to change out of her jogging outfit for a cover story photo shoot. If only there were something for Sarah Palin to compete at, to win? Palin said this “I can win” line to the reporter in Iowa, where there are certainly no competitions happening, so that’s too bad, but Sarah Palin would win if she were in Iowa, competing at something.  So, thanks Newsweek for that breaking update. Here is the rest of the interview in one sentence: Sarah Palin is upset the price of beef jerky has gotten so high, she does not want Piper to get her hair cut, and she cannot show up for one single thing on time or tell anybody where she is. Hooray, we knew all those things.

Here is another journalism win, for using the terms “quantitative easing” and “beef jerky” in the same breath:

Palin has also become conversant on the subject of quantitative easing, the inflationary effects of which she illustrated with a personal anecdote. “I was ticked off at Todd yesterday,” she said. “He walks into a gas station as we’re driving over from Minnesota. He buys a Slim Jim—we’re always eating that jerky stuff—for $2.69. I said, ‘Todd, those used to be 99 cents, just recently!’ And he says, ‘Man, the dollar’s worth nothing anymore.’ A jug of milk and a loaf of bread and a dozen eggs—every time I walk into that grocery store, a couple of pennies more…”

Redneck-onomics! So now we also know that Sarah Palin, who is paid $1 million a year by Fox News, is also cheap when it comes to gas station snacks. [Newsweek]

      The fuel bill for the Bus Tour to Nowhere (Who Needs a Bridge?) must have been a shocker, unless it was sent straight to some Koch front for payment.

      1. flamingpdog

        By quitting payment on the credit card bill halfway through, she saves 50% on gas.

    1. memzilla

      "We had to quit the race in order to save it." Vietnam, meet Alaska. Alaska, meet Vietnam.

  1. nounverb911

    "He buys a Slim Jim—we’re always eating that jerky stuff—for $2.69. I said, ‘Todd, those used to be 99 cents, just recently!’"
    I remember when they were a nickel, (and haven't eaten one since).

    1. SorosBot

      It's indicative of Palin, though; she's following the wingnut talking points and whining about the nonexistent threat of hyperinflation when inflation is actually at 0%, so she just decides to lie and make up an anecdote about rising prices that have actually stayed the same for the past few years.

      1. mumbly_joe

        It's an especially weird and facile lie (also right up Lou Sarah's alley) when it's something where they frequently print the prices right on the packaging, so really, people would know if the prices went up.

        Like, I spent $3.72 on a bag of chips, at that same gas station she's talking about. I remember when those same bags were just $0.99! It was like last week or something. Just to be clear, the gas station is located in Lou Sarah's imagination.

    2. flamingpdog

      The folks at the gas station probably saw the Palin bus a mile away and madly dashed to jack up all the prices on their stock before the bus pulled in.

  2. Ancient_Hacker

    Notice she doesn't try to dissuade Todd from that high-sodium "snack"! Nothing like a two-fer– showing poor nutrition and poor financial sense at one whack.

    1. berkeleyfarm

      Oh, she doesn't need to, the "story" was to show how folksy-n-stuff these multi-millionaires are. Sort of like Brisket's "I've worked hard all my life, unlike Megs McCabe". All just tryin' to create the image!

  3. EatsBabyDingos

    I like her jugs of milk. Not much else. I bet she like the Dicken's Cider, especially the Dicken's Cider Can.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      "I Can Win."*

      *a wet t-shirt contest of all Republican 'candidates' for POTUS 2012

        1. riverside68

          He's got the cup size, but lacks any firmness what so ever,

          I'm sticking with Lou Sarah in this contest.

      1. ChessieNefercat

        ""I Can Win."*
        *a wet t-shirt contest of all Republican 'candidates' for POTUS 2012"

        Not so fast, missy. Depends on if we limit it to real boobs. If so, Newt could be a real contender. (Wait, are wet t-shirt winners based on size or attractiveness of the chestal area?)

    2. MaxNeanderthal

      Was just thinking, is that a quote from her, or is the left hand Zeppelin yelling it at the right hand Zeppelin?

    1. memzilla

      "Dry my meat product" is a Wasilla High School pick-up line. It worked on Snowbilly Grifterette, Jr.

  4. BloviateMe

    ‘Man, the dollar’s worth nothing anymore.’

    If only we knew how that happened.

    1. DustBowlBlues

      Yeah. Like it isn't fucking conservatard economic theory, aka Voodoo Economics, at work. Are Americans just stupid, or what?

      What a stupid question. I live in Oklahoma, but since we have about 90 acres to protect us from being near the Rednecks, I forget how STOOPID my fellow okies are.

    2. comrad_darkness

      If only that were grammatical, also too.

      The passportless dumbfucks who love this woman have no clue that the dollar lost half its value under Bush.

    3. Sparky_McGruff

      Damn, the dollar's sure worth nothin' at all if she's getting paid six figures to spout off her ignorant mouth.

    1. MildMidwesterner

      I shout "I win" whenever "I win" first during fornication. This annoying act ensures that my one night stand leaves immediately, thus allowing for a good night's sleep on my part.

  5. memzilla

    "Palin has also become conversant on the subject of quantitative easing,"

    You know what I'd like to see a "quantitative easing" of? Media coverage of Sarah Palin, for starters.

    1. Terry

      Palin is well known for quantitatively easing the boundaries of truth, dignity, and decency.

        1. NorthStarSpanx

          He got that she's versed in "quantitative easing" from her beef jerky story? Fucking 'filter' of the Lamestream Media strikes in her favor – again.

          1. ChessieNefercat

            As if either of the dolts in that article (writer/writee) have the faintest idea what quantitative easing is.

    1. mourningnmerica

      Have you lost your Goddamn mind? She is like Beluga to them. They can't get enough of the insipid bitch.

      I read the article, and the best part is that they did a photo shoot, and she shows her tits. Pushed together, with an American flag between them. She tried to lick them, but they weren't big enough. Pretty nice pics, though.

        1. LetUsBray

          It's beginning to look like a list of people whose voice mail he and his henchmen haven't hacked might be shorter.

    1. chicken_thief

      Isn't this her second gym cloths, chest out cover? She'll be naked on a bear rug before it's all over.

    2. zhubajie

      Just bare'm, Sarah, so we can see if there's really anything there besides a padded bra! Even if they really look like a pair of deflated balloons!

  6. DashboardBuddha

    OT: From the top of the picture – That Murdoch thing seems to getting some traction.

    1. Limeylizzie

      For once I am proud of my people, I hope this craters the whole Murdoch Empire, it's looking worse with every passing day.

      1. SorosBot

        I just hope that someone on this side of the pond is looking into if Murdoch's papers here have been up to the same thing.

        1. GOPCrusher

          If they aren't, I have lost what little respect for American journalism that I had left.

        2. Limeylizzie

          Well, last I heard , they tried to get an ex-NYC cop to get the numbers of 9/11 victims phones, so it seems to be creeping across the pond.

        3. Limeylizzie

          Lookie here!Rupert Murdoch's efforts to contain the scandal within the UK received a further set back on Monday after a Washington campaign group,Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, called for an investigation into whether any journalists working for NI had hacked into the voice mail of Americans.In a letter to the Senate commerce committee and the House energy and commerce committee, Crew asked the Republican and Democratic members of Congress to overlook their politician differences and investigate reports, which appeared in the Daily Mirror, that 9/11 victims had their phones hacked by journalists.”Congress should immediately investigate whether and to what extent “News of the World” journalists hacked or attempted to hack the voicemails of American terrorist victims, politicians and celebrities as well as whether journalists working for any other News Corporation media outlet in the United States engaged in such tactics,” the letter from Crew's executive director, Melanie Sloan, said.

          1. MaxNeanderthal

            What's the difference between Rebekah Brooks and the Sun?
            One's an ugly, lying, dirty little red-top, and the others a newspaper.

        4. PristineODummy

          There's already multiple stories hitting the news about the involvement of the Murdoch tool who now runs the WSJ. I'll be glad to see the Murdoch version of that rag go. The pre-Murdoch version was bad enough, but at least they faked being nonpartisan fairly effectively. Sometimes. For the lobotomized.

    2. DustBowlBlues

      I hope the UK citizens stay strong on this one, and Nick Clegg would keep up the demands on Newscorp and thereby proves the Liberals aren't completely lame. He should ask himself everyday, "'What would Gladstone do?"

      (Disraeli, of course, would host a toney cocktail party to each Murdoch's worries and line the Tories pockets.)

  7. Barb

    Jesus, all their "marriage of convenience" needs now is a Slurpee machine to go along with the Slim Jims.

        1. flamingpdog

          Slightly, but not much off topic, my boss informed us this morning via e-mail that today is "Free Slurpee Day" at 7-11. (Today's 7-11, get it? Unless you're Limeylizzie and then it's 11-7.)

  8. weejee

    If Palin wins will she convert Air Force One to a float plane so she can land on the lakes?

    Though tis hard to win if you quit. Just sayin'

  9. Rosie_Scenario

    "Okay, Sarah, that's a great pose. Now just step back another foot toward the lake. Yeah, another foot, and maybe another. A little more . . ."

  10. freakishlywrong

    It's that radical pinko FLOTUS who is busy pricing Slim Jims beyond grifterbillie's grasp. Hey beyotch, grow a garden.

  11. BaldarTFlagass

    Well, everything's more expensive at the gas station/convenience store, you stupid twat. That's what you're paying for, convenience. Get it? You shoulda got the full pallet at Sam's Club, they're a lot cheaper in bulk.

  12. Goonemeritus

    Sarah loves the role of political prom queen that never puts out. I would be cool with that if she would extend her political abstinence to her need to update us on every inane thought that forms in her cranial orb.

  13. V572 der Plaatz

    Tina Brown's magic is much in evidence here. Newsweek is on its way to Total Media Domination. The secret (just between us) is always being in top of the Latest Trends! Plus your news was always a week old when it go to the reader even in the pre-Web days.

    1. Urban_Achiever

      Nothing pithy to add here, other than Newsweek's quality has dropped by a thousand percentage points since it became "NewsBeast"…….

    1. DustBowlBlues

      But whose boobs? Mine are old, like me, so that's a no-go. (And how many of you are going to start answering "Sara B"?

    1. GOPCrusher

      Yes, but I still contend that Bible Spice will do a Playboy pictorial. Somebody is going to completely take the spotlight away from her, and that will be her nuclear option.

        1. ChessieNefercat

          Who will then go home and rip out their eyeballs and then pour vodka in the empty sockets.

  14. qwerty42

    Is she just wandering around the upper mid-west delivering her word salad messages or is she ringin' bells and firin' guns and warnin' folks? It is hard to tell the difference.

    1. Steverino247

      Oh, she's "warnin' folks" alright. Warning them of what a disaster it would have been if McCain had defeated Obama.

    1. SorosBot

      Didn't they alter OJ Simpson's post-arrest photo to make him look blacker, though? (Or was that Time?)

  15. OkieDokieDog

    Shut up, ya dumb cow. Michele Bachmann is the new queen on the teabaggie label. Only because she has not quit and BONUS! she's even a dumber cow than you.

    1. hollywooddood

      Thought process: Let's find a maverick with boobs to fool American women voters into thinking she's just like Hillary.

      1. PristineODummy

        I wouldn't put "thought" in that sentence at all. Clearly, none was applied at the time.

    2. glamourdammerung

      Not quite as bad as collaborating with the North Vietnamese, but definitely more annoying.

  16. BaldarTFlagass

    At first I thought the logo on her sweatshirt said "HUGE PENIS." But I was wrong.

    1. jakegittes

      Wonder how much she bilked "Edge Fitness" out of for her promise to wear the sweatshirt in the photo shoot. She is such a conniving, scheming sack of crap.

  17. MLHencken

    Why is it when looking at this cover I end up imagining her as the Griftertron-2000, gazing out over a scorched landscape in the dystopian future that would result were she to become president. That, and the shape of her skull/jawline just seems…unnatural.

    I didn't even like typing that.

    1. DustBowlBlues

      It doesn't make as many crumbs in the car as pork rinds and doesn't turn everyone's fingers orange. She's tidy, if nothing else. But what about the Mt Dew bottles? What do the Palins do with those?

        1. Rotundo_

          55 gallon drum with holes punched in the side so the fire can breathe, if they are good bubbas they have some sort of screen to keep the big burning chunks from escaping and landing on the neighbors (or their own) roof and trees. Great time to have a beer and burn stuff, if you want to make it more festive, throw in an aerosol can (Lysol rocks!) and get explosion and flames! Burning trash is the equivalent of a bubbas' golf outing if done right.

  18. Callyson

    While Saint Sarah is whining about paying a couple of pennies more (from her seven – figure salary), people who are really poor are truly hurting:
    But for the planet's poorest 2 billion people, who spend 50 to 70 percent of their income on food, these soaring prices may mean going from two meals a day to one. Those who are barely hanging on to the lower rungs of the global economic ladder risk losing their grip entirely. This can contribute — and it has — to revolutions and upheaval. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2011/04/25/
    Please, trolls, do explain how tax cuts for the wealthy are going to solve this problem…

    1. DustBowlBlues

      More to the point, there is nothing that tax cuts and tort reform can't fix. Ask our ignorant guv or, well, any Republitard.

    2. Steverino247

      That's what should be on the front cover of Newsweek instead of that stupid person.

  19. CapeClod

    Desperate magazine puts the world's most annoying attention whore on its cover. How depressingly predictable.

    1. Rotundo_

      What is their full up paying subscriber base these days? You know the dentists and doctors offices must get a sweetheart deal, so what, full cash subscriptions might be in the tens of thousands now? When it was almost free I subscribed to it for a few years, but it just got to the point where even for almost nothing it wasn't worth the space it occupied in my mailbox. Credit card offers were more anticipated…

  20. Wilcoxyz

    Did anyone tell her what Newsweek costs? A dollar. Not for an issue — for the whole damn company. That's a bargain. But if you don't read much, you're better off paying the extra $1.69 for the jerky.

  21. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    I am glad that Palin has noted that gas stations snacks are over priced because of the Fed's policy of quantitative easing. I cannot wait for her substantive essay on gas station food prices to be published in The Economist.

    1. BlueMonkeh

      Betty Ford?

      What, too soon?

      (If you're old, like me, you remember the W.I.N. buttons from her dead husband's campaign – whip inflation now or some shit.)

    2. SexySmurf

      Bo Bice? Ruben Studdard? Taylor Hicks? Hell, just about anyone who's ever been on American Idol?

  22. ShaveTheWhales

    And we have the Newspeak author implicitly advancing the notion that QE has caused a big increase in inflation, despite the fact that, you know, it hasn't.

  23. Andrew Drinker

    Notice that their food choices are the EXACT POLAR OPPOSITE of what you'd find in a Michelle Obama Victory Garden, in Michigan or elsewhere!

  24. Barb

    I'm surprised that she did an article for Newsweek. They are the ones who sold that extreme close up cover that showed dark course lip hairs, a couple of chin hairs, a pulsing pimple and crows feet on her face "She's One of Us' Fox news went ballistic and had to show the cover over and over again, bringing tons of attention to something that few would have noticed because Newsweek sucks and few buy it.

    1. berkeleyfarm

      For even more fun, they re-published the cheesecake photo from her "runner's world" spread, and she yelled "SEXIST!"

      I wonder what Tina Brown promised her? I want to see if the cover is "corrected". I know that Sarah might have done her own "correcting" with the water bra she wears when she's feelin' frisky.

  25. widestanceroman

    PIty party of one.

    I would send her a new pair of scissors to clip coupons, but I do not care to have her private security visit my home.

  26. Mumbletypeg

    I CAN WIN

    Quitters<>winners, etc… too easy. One requires reality to deal with gracefully; and the other, humility. You have a grasp of neither, $arah, but it's not too late to go rogue! Take a page from the original Straight-Talkin' Gov't candidate as he quoted General Sherman: "I will not run if nominated, and if elected I will not serve."

  27. Crank_Tango

    Please please please put your grifting money where you whiney victim mouth is and go out there and get your ass handed to you by Hopey. Again. Please.

  28. genxr

    She can be a strong negotiator at the G8 summit — provided the other nations can describe all underlying issues in terms of beef jerky.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      "The only jerky Sarah ever eats is the figurative dick she's munching of Reagan's literal decaying corpse every time she steps up on stage."

      I would believe that if I thought she knew anything at all about Reagan besides his name ("say Reagan, people clap, Reagan, Reagan, Reagan!").

      As it is, I think the dick she would most like to munch is her own.

  29. Thurman Munster IV

    You would think Todd would already know how much it costs to eat jerky. He's married to her.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      She's not. Google Palin Belmont. The girls come and go depending on which bra she drags out from under the bed on a given day, and whether there's some old white Republican guy around that might give her money.

      I have been informed that the old goats on her C4P site think she is just like Loretta Young!

  30. Come here a minute

    If you ask Sarah Palin about liqidity traps, her answer will involve Joe the Plumber.

    1. DahBoner

      Yeah, they got one of them there health food stores in Wasilla. It's called "Circle K"…"

      1. ChessieNefercat

        Slim Jims are one of the most challenging targets in small-game hunting. Have you ever tried to skin one? Well, Sarah can field dress one, you betcha!

  31. metamarcisf

    That magazine cover makes her look fat. Why is Newsweek supporting the communists?

  32. Barb

    That's not what the cover says "I Can Win"

    It's a fold out cover and the whole thing reads, "I Can Wink My Way Through Anything, Because I Think American Men Vote With Their Penises"

    1. genxr

      Voting with my penis is a lot easier since they replaced the punch card lever machines with electronic voting. Now it's like – Whack! Beep! Done.

    2. Rotundo_

      Take a look at the demographics of who voted for Walnuts!/SnowbillyGrifterQueen and they pretty much show that. They were pretty popular with the male half of the population base. Griftette can do it again if the noise machine does its magic.

  33. ManchuCandidate

    Oh wow. It's amazing* that Sarah can not understand that when the price of oil goes up so must everything that's made from it and transported by it.

    *not really.

    It would probably blow Sarah's mind even more if someone told her that Slim Jims are not made from real meat.

  34. SilverFox

    Damn it. I think I went almost a whole week without reading anything about America's favorite grifter.

  35. BaldarTFlagass

    I'm a driver, I'm a winner
    Things are gonna change, I can feel it

    She'd really be gettin' crazy if Todd had bought the Cheez Whiz. Yo, cut it.

  36. DaSandman

    What is quantitative easing?

    Is that like an in public handy or something like that? Is it a Wasilla deal?

    Is that how Brisket started before she discovered wine coolers?

  37. Redhead

    Didn't she pose on the cover of Runner's World during the McCain veep days? Maybe that's what she's running for (they do have cameras, after all).

    1. ChessieNefercat

      I believe she dressed up for that one. She wore pantyhouse under her running shorts (ew!) and tossed the American flag sloppily over a chair as a suitable backdrop for her hootchie-cootchie-hot-mama posing (not a single shot of her actually, you know, running).

      1. GOPCrusher

        I also remember that same picture was used again and the wingnuts went ape shit screaming "That's Sexist!"

    2. berkeleyfarm

      I think it was after. She said she could beat Obama in that one, IIRC. Not sure she said at what ;).

  38. comrad_darkness

    Check out the SI swimsuit edition pose on the dock in the article. Even Newsweek has clued into MILF as her sole qualification for attention.

  39. Oblios_Cap

    If there hadn't been so many Wonkette articles about her before the election, $arah would have never ended up on Grandpa Walnutz' casting couch – HENNGH! – and gotten the backup role.

    So we have no one but ourselves to blame. But I'm not commiting seppuku over it.

    1. Rotundo_

      Bill Krystol gets that load o'blame, and dammit he just won't do the honorable thing and get the sword and sake out and have it over with. If only we were Japan…

  40. 5thstate

    Of course she she was ticked off at Todd …..for paying the asking price for Jerky!

    She could have gotten it for free, by just pretending she needed it for jury duty and America, so she could be undefeated in jogging suits, also. .

  41. FlipOffResearch

    Some people ask me why I hate Sarah Palin so much. I guess it's just a knee jerk reaction to a dumb, photogenic and ambitious politician. You know, after the mess GWB caused.

  42. mumbly_joe

    The fact that Lou Sarah considers Slim Jims, which are mostly mechanically separated chicken, to be in the class of "that jerky stuff" is honestly just another clear sign that her redneck credentials are fundamentally phony. Real jerky is actually pretty good, and readily available in real 'merica, if my one trip to The Mountains of Rural North Carolina Where Everyone Stares At Me For Being Brown is any indiciation.

    Oh, and also, where the fuck is Lou Sarah, that slim Jims cost $2.69. I live in the middle of Highcostoflivingville, Manhattan, and I've never seen a fucking Slim Jim break $2.00. Even the extra-thick gluttony-sized ones.

    1. YasserArraFeck

      Don't you remember that interview with Lou Sarah blathering on while, in the background, a turkey was being mechanically separated from its head? Bitch has been methodically separating the TeaTards from their cash ever since.

    2. horsedreamer_1

      I had a strip of (possibly) artisanal jerky in my Bloody Mary at yesterday's brunch.

      Good eating.

      1. mumbly_joe

        Sure. And there's a really great organic jerky place in Brooklyn, that promotes at the botanical garden's cherry blossom festival every year for some reason, and also sells its wares out of a bar the rest of the year.

        But, I think that case is really just a consequence of the fact that hipsters started as/still are an appropriation/affectation of redneck culture.

  43. YasserArraFeck

    So when I ponder the merits of our President, the C-in-C of our Armed Services and the Leader of the Free World, I don't want to waste my time with "Intellect", "Gravitas" and all that bumf – I want to be able to say "Good tits"

    1. DaSandman

      Yeah yeah…perky. A victory of engineering over gravity.

      President Perky. I like that

  44. BaldarTFlagass

    I CAN WIN.

    That's just what Juan Antonio Flecha and Johnny Hoogerland were thinking yesterday afternoon, until the media had it's say.

  45. DangerHelvetica

    "Sarah Palin on why she's so confident"
    So someone explained the Dunning-Kruger effect to her?

    1. FlipOffResearch

      I looked up the DK effect, very interesting. Kind of like: the more I know, the more I know that I don't know. Given this, I can see why Palin thinks she knows everything.

      1. DangerHelvetica

        Yeah, it certainly explains a lot about politics. I like to summarize it as "too stupid to know you're stupid".

  46. V572 der Plaatz

    All newsmagazine covers must be compared to this one. You wonder what it looked like before the Photoshop wizards went to work on "her."

    1. flamingpdog

      Jeesus, that head doesn't look right. Looks like they actually (badly) photoshopped that head on there.
      Oh, and nice wishbone she's got there on her chest. Dibs on making a wish with it.

  47. flamingpdog

    Palin has also become conversant on the subject of quantitative easing, .

    Based on the comments on this post, I'd say Palin has also become conversant on the subject of quantitative cock-teasing.

  48. SheriffRoscoe

    Real Americans hate overpaying for meat by-products. They have the Ronco Food Dehydrator.

  49. DahBoner

    "I Can Win"

    And I can fart with sufficient force to escape Earth's orbit and can actually fly to the moon!

    But I just don't want to.

    So there! NYAH NYAH NYAH NYAH!!!!!!

    1. ChessieNefercat

      That was at least as plausible and a lot more authentic-sounding than her yammerings on what she thinks she can do.

  50. El Pinche

    I see Newsweek didn't go the full mile with nipple shots and/or cleavage. Even her magazine covers are half-ass.

  51. DahBoner

    "And he says, ‘Man, the dollar’s worth nothing anymore."

    So, just try to pay for it in GOLD and STFU dumbass…

    Dear Newsweek, I am a private citizen who is not running for President but am technically qualified to do so and might run maybe; I have political opinions but have no influence in politics. Now where's my cover story?

    1. ChessieNefercat

      If you write and tell her that, maybe she'll tell you where you can buy a pair just like them. Well, I mean if you offer to pay her.

  53. GOPCrusher

    She "warns" Boehner not to raise the debt ceiling?
    What's she going to do when it happens? Throw a fit?
    Look sister, there's a whole lot of Social Security and Medicare recipients out there, that would be more than willing to rend you limb from limb, if that check doesn't show up on Aug. 3rd.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      At last, a good reason not to raise the debt ceiling. The cost (global economic catastrophe?) would almost be worth it.

    2. q_tion_evrythng

      No line-jumping, please, fellow Wonketeers. :-) I claim dibs as the first in line in my state to render Palin on Aug 3 and I'll trip your asses if you cut in front of me. :-(

      1. ChessieNefercat

        I would be pleased and proud to do nothing but hold your jacket for you and watch you rend away at the silly cow.

      Now that one &/or both goddesses have left him, Charlie has an opening. Bring on Sarah &/or Bristol to your harem, Wild Thing!

  54. not that Dewey

    Wait until she finds out that my $145k house originally sold for $8k, in 1967. ZOFMG THERE MUST BE A BLACK MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE PUT ME ON YER MAGAZINE COVER

  55. Guppy06

    ‘Man, the dollar’s worth nothing anymore.’

    Maybe we should stop printing paper dollars and move to coins.

    Oh, wait, that's a cardinal sin…

  56. ChessieNefercat

    All the speculation that has been put before us over all these years, and finally we get this, that explains everything about that fucking imbecilic scraggly yowling hag:

    "He buys a Slim Jim—we’re always eating that jerky stuff—for $2.69."

  57. ChessieNefercat

    And what's up with that stupid photo shoot? It's a cross between the output of a slightly pervy untalented twenty-something that has convinced some sweet young thing she can be a model, and the unimportant shots surrounding a Playboy centerfold: "I like long walks through mountain meadows filled with flowers, sunsets over the lake, and jogging while wearing a tight, thin hoodie over my voluptuously bouncing breasts."**

    **I found the black water bra I wore under the thin white t-shirt at that Belmont horsey thing last summer. Also too I have nothing else to offer. Boobies! Look at me!

  58. prommie

    She has the largest smirk of any human being ever to have lived. That is truly the mother of all smirks.

    1. zhubajie

      There's something weird about her whole expression. Too much surgery? The Be'elzebub face starting to come out?

  59. mavenmaven

    Can't wait for the day when this comment of hers will be taken for granted, because no one will give a rat's "jerky":

    “Our hotel was right down the block from The Des Moines Register,” Palin later told me, plainly pleased. “Nobody knew we were there.”

  60. Oblios_Cap

    Yes, but does Lou $arah "Love" her vegetables like our zucchini munching friend Kortney?

  61. q_tion_evrythng

    Since running for President is probably out & w/Cindy Anthony and/or Casey Anthony most likely having a lock on "Worst Mother of the Year," what WILL Sarah do next?
    Because they are both GREAT moms and are both great big IDS ( of "id, ego, superego" OR idiots), maybe Sarah Palin and Casey Anthony could start a child care center.

    1. GOPCrusher

      Well, Michele Bachmann has stated that she won't get into a mud wrestling contest with Bible Spice. Maybe this Casey Anthony chick will?

    2. flamingpdog

      Guess I better run downtown and grab the trademark for the JW Gacy KiddieGarden before Sarah and Casey do.

  62. krazyvladimir

    You know what still costs only 99 cents ??? a bottle of rubbing alcohol, known in Alaska as "Wine cooler"

  63. Gomez571

    “I was ticked off at Todd yesterday,” For what? The price of jerky? Has she ever blamed a problem on the correct cause?

  64. franco_pinyon

    Her head may be empty but that hoodie is plenty full, brutha! Whooey! She got the Costco/Sam's Club size.

    Looks like Newsweek might be angling to capture the News of the World audience.

    How much of Larry Flynt's money do ya think "Tits for Brains" would settle for to show some big time snatch, et al., in Hustler Magazine? Let's face it. Everybody's gotta price. And nobody in the world proves that principle more than Palin.

    1. zhubajie

      Larry's a lefty, though. Also, he's seen a LOT of tits, and would probably prefer one of the younger Palins'. Willow, are you ready?

  66. Warpde

    I had the run(s) once.
    Ok, Ok, more then once.
    Still, what a shitty time.

    Only winner was Charmain Super Soft.

  67. Biel_ze_Bubba

    You can see their lobbyists outside GOP senatorial offices, fighting with Archer-Daniels-Midland lobbyists to be first in the door with their sacks of money.

  68. ChessieNefercat

    I wish you were being snarky, but that really is that brainless twat's attitude. You're not the boss of me!
