facts are stupid things

Sarah Palin Was Also Wrong About That Slim Jim Thing

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Seen here enjoying Todd's Monster SticksJust yesterday, we celebrated star actress of The Learning Channel, Sarah Palin, and her sweatshirt-glam cover on Newsweek magazine, where she bravely declared, “I can win,” even though she is not in any sort of snowshoe race or Scrabble match at the moment, not that she could possibly win either of those things. The most riveting piece of this important cover story was, of course, the part where Sarah Palin got all nostalgic for the imaginary time in her head when a lady could hop off her Tour Bus to Nowhere, wander into the mini-mart with a single dollar bill, and leave with a Slim Jim in hand. Apparently this happened to Sarah Palin, “just recently,” before beef jerky prices skyrocketed 169 percent. More than likely, though, Todd Palin just has an unquenchable thirst for Slim Jims.

Somebody (probably a trucker who got stuck reading Newsweek, for some reason) thought there was something wrong about this Slim Jim story, and called Politifact to complain. Politifact then used its Pulitzer Prize-winning skills to remind America that Sarah Palin is still always wrong about everything.

But even a 10.2 percent increase in beef prices — a major ingredient of Slim Jims, even if not the only one — does not explain a price rise of 169 percent, which is what Palin’s comparison would suggest.

Still, national statistics alone can’t settle this question. So we went directly to ConAgra, the food giant that makes Slim Jims.

Teresa Paulsen, a ConAgra spokeswoman, said that “we admire Mr. Palin’s taste and appreciate his support,” but added that “we haven’t raised the price significantly on any Slim Jim products.”

She also offered a possible explanation for the confusion. “Our iconic Slim Jim Giant Sticks are priced around $1.30,” Paulsen said. “Mr. Palin might have been reaching for one of our Slim Jim Monster Sticks, which offers double the meat for $2.30, or our Slim Jim Kippered Beef Steak, which typically sells for around $2.65.”

Todd probably got confused and thought that a Monster Stick is something that can be used to ward off a nearby monster. He planned to buy a crate of them and carry them on his person, whenever he is at home. [Politifact]

    There's meat in Slim Jims?

    • zhubajie

      When they scrape out the sausage machine, the meat become Slim Jims.

  • OC_Surf_Serf

    beef — a major ingredient of Slim Jims

    I'd have to see a lab test to believe that…

    (outta palin juice…and its only tuesday)

    • Terry

      I used to work the cash register at a liquor store. I promise you that among the packaged meat snacks, Slim Jims have the least alarming ingredient list. One packaged sausage…not naming names…has beef lips as the first ingredient. They specifically say beef lips.

      • V572 der Plaatz

        And who even knew cows have lips? The more you know…

      • Geminisunmars

        aka beef vulva.

  • edgydrifter

    Wait. Palin's folksy anecdote pivots on the fact that either she or Todd actually bought something, which is obviously impossible as it would be a gross violation of the grifter code. More likely Todd bitched about prices as he was fishing all the crap he boosted out of his cargo shorts.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Wouldn't Todd have been purchasing his Slim Jims in Alaska, where everything is hella expensive? Then he comes down to the Outside (aka, Lower 48) where prices are, generally, lower.

    Particularly in the non-urban areas Duh Guv'Nor tours (again, where the entire cost of living tends to be lower) – she avoids the big cities like a gangster on the lam.

    In other words, this "story" is total BS. Other than the obvious fact that Todd has a Slim Jim. That, I do believe.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    I think I understand the confusion. Todd Palin came out and said it has become much more expensive to suck on some meat, and Sarah just assumed he was talking about a Slim Jim.

  • greypanter

    In her defense, it was a trick question: "Hey Sarah, what's on your mind?"

    I'm not sure exactly how Sarah and her supporters will turn this around and proclaim that she is actually right about this, but I am sure of this much: It will be a doozy, and it will be every bit as inane as the original claim.

    ConAgra probably should just lower the price of SlimJims to what the ice grifter says it is… unless they want a million rabid Palinites (ie–most of the people who buy SlimJims) screaming that they have their prices wrong.

    Although wouldn't it be hilarious if they were the first ones on the fucking planet to just out-and-out declare "Bitch is wrong. She often is. Deal with it." I would probably actually buy a SlimJim in their honor if they did that.

    In the time it takes for the Slim Jimmies to get to Alaska the price of Beef went up 110%.
    Store owners trading stock on the Internet on the NYSE saw this and jacked prices up before their first customer showed up and adjusted the price accordingly to reflect the world market.
    Unfortunately Sarah, against Toddlers advice, waited until the morning to buy their Slimy Jimmies.
    Only to find out that Speculators had cashed in and prices fell shortly after,
    Forcing the store owners to re-adjust prices shortly after Palin made the purchase.

    Shorter ConAgra: "Sarah and Todd, you're both idiots."

  • ttommyunger

    Anyone over 40 who eats anything sold in convenience stores or gas stations needs to wise up. Only a young body can tolerate that many toxins. 'Course, some folk over 40 are still in their teens developmentally; I'm talking to you, Sarah Barracuda.

    • ThundercatHo

      True that. Besides, don't real men make their own damn jerky out of the wild game they have hunted and slaughtered themselves?

      • ttommyunger

        Wouldn't know about that. I guess I'm not a real man like Todd or Ted (Tiny Goober) Nugent.

      • Radiotherapy®

        Good point, wasn't she the mistress of moose jerky?

    • Larry McAwful

      I get my beef jerky at Trader Joe's, because I'm an elitist communist liberal. And I'm 41.

    In other words, once again, the entire apparatus of American media and commerce are expended to examine the perpetual question:

    "Is S___ P___ still a thick-headed, know-nothing, world-class dingbat who habitually spouts utter idiocy?"

  • lumpenprole

    It's kinda funny that William Kristol had so much to do with bringing Sarah into the major league.

    Yeah, but a jug of milk still costs 45 dollars or something like that.

    Nitrites libel!

  • Larry McAwful

    Once again, Wonkette's bias shines through. Michelle Obama was recently seen eating a huge bowl of Slim Jims swimming in grape soda, in public, which had around 1500 calories to it, at least, and no one even asked her if she knew how much it cost. You liberals.

    • prommie

      Grape Nehi, I am sure.

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    How she got Newsweek to run with "I Can Win" as the title — when clearly it just read "I'm Still Relevant!" is beyond me.

  • Gomez571

    I'm still wondering why she got "ticked off" at Todd over the price of Slim Jims.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    She might want to consider snapping into a brain.

    Sarah Palin, eh? I does not care. I does not care about her; I does not care for her. So, stop it, already. I couldn't care less about what she thinks about Libya, let alone some stupid, folksy shit she has to say about the price of a fleshy, smokey, carcinogenic stick of death.

    BTW, don't speak ill of truckers. They are a lot more interesting and deep a people than you think. They are like traveling philosopher kings and queens if you can look past the lot lizards.

  • El Pinche

    Personally I think the Cuntress of Wasilla is starting to do product placements now.

    Fun fact : If you take all of America's favorite foods and process all of it using some giant Haliburton grinder, you get the inside of a Slim Jim…salty , fatty, greasy shit paste.

  • Callyson

    Maybe Todd just wanted a piece of what Kortney has.
    Um, perhaps I should rephrase that…

  • flamingpdog

    Slightly off topic, but has anyone noticed that "Sarah Palin" is an anagram of "Sharia Plan"? I'd be kinda scared if I weren't already paranoid.

  • fuflans

    well, they may take gov't in 2012, but at least they lost the light bulb vote.

  • http://t.co/83Yq8x9 smokefilleddoommate

    Maybe she was thinking of the Slim Jim Shortage of '09.

  • mumbly_joe

    I actually like how politifact manages to snark about how terrible Slim Jims are through the entire piece, pointing out that they're like 2% salt and 47% animal fat, and so basically have more spice and fat than meat. Just like anything Palin says.

  • An_Outhouse

    Woooooaaah – Slim Jim's contain beef?

    I am so glad America has found viable replacements for Jon and Kate Gosselin.

  • genxr

    $2.69 is the price of a slim jim and 3 condoms. I used to do the same thing when my parents gave me gas money. "Gee, the prices sure went up, didn't they?"

  • NorthStarSpanx

    Sarah, hey Sarah, yeah you. I hope you and Bristol read this and read it to Todd Todd Todd (have you seen Todd?) and all the other biting blogs and gossip sites every single day to have anonymous chihuahua's tree you, you fucking freak of nature.

    You lie like you breath, you exaggerate like a soap-box preacher, your breast size fluctuates with the venue. We know you'll blink, you aren't a big enough girl to handle a national campaign, your bus tour to test the waters showed how much you are reviled, you loser.

  • sportshort

    These people just seem to be wandering in the "I'm Dumb" forest and smacking into "You're An Idiot" trees all the time don't they?

  • ibwilliamsi

    Todd has a slim jim of his own, and was just wishing he had a chunky monkey.
