Sarah Palin Resurrects Bus Tour For Fried Butter, Other Surprises

i thought you'd miss me!Oh hooray, it’s Snowbilly Grifter Grandma and her bus tour, rolling across the ruins of the American Dream once more. What was this bus tour called, again? The Trail of Tears? Probably something like that, and we were close to believing that Sarah Palin had really decided to snowshoe her way back to the wilderness and forget about the whole thing, to bask in the glory of her family’s endless procreation. Really, though, she was just “reloading” before her big drive back to Iowa, where maybe she will give another speech or interview about how she is not running for President. She is doing this down the street from the Ames straw poll, because when Sarah Palin does not get invited to terrible parties, she holds her own even more terrible parties just down the street, except with more Freedom and screeching.

Big surprise, Sarah Palin has returned from Alaska for some reason, and we are thinking the reason is probably “for attention she does not deserve.”

In an email to supporters Wednesday, Palin said she’s accepted an invitation “to meet folks at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines this week.”

Palin doesn’t say which day she plans to appear at the fair, which coincides with the straw poll but is a separate event about half an hour away. An Iowa GOP activist who is close to Palin, Becky Beach, told the Des Moines Register the visit was slated for Friday.

Palin writes that the trip marks the latest installment in her “One Nation” bus tour. She spent a week in late May touring East Coast historical sites on the last leg of the bus tour.

She’s been in Alaska since then, except for a high-profile trip to Pella, Iowa, in June, when she attended the local premiere of a documentary about her political rise.

It makes sense that she would perform at a State Fair, because isn’t that where livestock compete in beauty contests and women with facial hair play the Guess My Weight game? It is probably a Holy Land for members of the Sarah Palin fan club, the stuff of dreams, perhaps.

Palin has an active organization of volunteer supporters in Iowa who believe she’s going to seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. While there will be a write-in option on the straw poll ballot, Palin’s supporters aren’t mounting a campaign for write-in votes like Perry’s supporters are.

Naturally, Palin’s email about the trip to the fair includes a dig at President Obama. She writes, “I’m also excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc. I’ll enjoy them in honor of those who’d rather make us just ‘eat our peas’!”

Ah, the old “fried butter-on-a-stick forever!” platform. Sarah Palin is basically already president, for her commitment to diabetes. [Politico]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • memzilla

    **sigh** If only we had Intern Riley to kick around anymore, we could have dispatched him to report on this (***YEEEEE*awn***) momentous event, instanter. Now we have to rely on someone being gullible enough to put the trip on their own card until Ken gets around to (lol) reimbursing them from teh massive Wonkette site profitz (dubl LOLZ).

    • Radiotherapy®

      As an austerity measure, the wonkette überlords have decided to abandon the seven year tradition of having an "intern." Plus, they're all busy looting in the UK now..

  • bureaucrap

    Sarah Palin, like brigadoon, rises out of the mist any time it looks like someone else might be getting more attention than her.

    • berkeleyfarm

      This is basically it.

      Mind you, the "upstaging people's events" seems to have worked out for her so far.

      • PristinePantalones

        I wonder why none of these great big wussies is saying a single word in complaint? Why don't they just confront this shrill freeloader and point out her violation of the 11th Commandment For Republicans? Too scared?

        • berkeleyfarm

          Could be a combo of things. I'm leaning towards "letting her make a complete fool of herself" and "someone has the long knives ready to come out".

    • Texan_Bulldog

      More like that hand that comes out of the water at the end of Deliverance…

    • berkeleyfarm

      For what it's worth, the above is my nomination for "Comment of the Day".

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Kinda like my dog the attention whore. Every time I'd go to pet the other dog, he'd horn in and push her out of the way, "Pet ME, pet ME, give me all that attention, never mind her."

      • Nothingisamiss

        I can totally appreciate this comment, although my dogs make more sense when they fart than Sarah Palin in all her glory. Also, too, I don't like the occassional living room accident, but I imagine their shit is easier to clean up than this she monster.

        • FannyBurney

          I think of her more as Godzilla rising from Tokyo Harbor.

  • vodkamuppet

    Goddamned peas, all fancy like and not on a stick.

    • http://www.vinoverve.com Maman

      You could put peas on a stick… it would have to be more like a really long needle though.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        You'd still have to deep-fry them in lard to make them palatable.

        • neiltheblaze

          Though, if you cook them in bacon grease, I'm sure she'd find that nutritionally acceptable.

        • vodkamuppet

          Just explain to me how you stuff a pea with cheese-wiz and I'll consider it truly American cuisine. Until then, suck it pinko.

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            Here you go:
            cheese-stuffed peas

            Replace the intellectual liberal elite mascarpone with Real American™ Cheez-Wiz, and you're ready to deep-fry the suckers. (Add bacon-bitz for the ultimate edition.)

          • PristinePantalones

            Jezus, that's a horrible thing to do to a pea.

          • vodkamuppet

            Two things about this recipe:
            1) Jesus Christ.
            2) Why not top it with baconnaise lite for the ultimate recipe?

        • PristinePantalones

          Man after my own disease-infested, plaque-laden heart.

      • Lionel[redacted]Esq

        Why is it that fried butter on a stick makes me think of Last Tango in Paris.

      • tessiee

        "You could put peas on a stick… it would have to be more like a really long needle though."

        If the women in that family had that little of a gag reflex, they probably wouldn't be pooping out stupidly-named babbies every eight or nine months.

      I like peas. That is all.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnny-Appletruth/133951326629923?sk=wall deanbooth

      In the Palin clan, "peas on a stick" is code for a pregnancy test.

    • PristinePantalones

      Or deep-fried.

    • savethispatient

      I eat peas with honey,
      I've done so all my life,
      It makes the peas taste funny,
      But it keeps them on the knife*.

      I'm genuinely a bit surprised (and very little surprises me about Sarah) that she hasn't yet compared herself to Rosa Park. I mean, that's right in her wheelhouse.

        She would, if Rosa Park was white also.

        I think she can rightly take Lady Gaga's affectionate nickname for her fans and re-appropriate it for what's involved with her One Nation Divided bus tour.

        "Little Monsters" goes well with her Little Shop of Horrors. Have at it Sarah, you steal everything and anything that's been put in front of her over the years anyway.

  • MiniMencken

    Yup. If'n yew want to ketch yoursel' a Librul, jus' open a can of peas and leave 'em on your front porch. When the Librul comes to take a pea, you kin shoot 'em with your Galil 7.62 mm. assault rifle. Heh, heh, heh!

    • neiltheblaze

      Unless the raccoons get to them first.

      • genxr

        Damn welfare raccoons.

      • PristinePantalones

        Then you shoot the dayum raccoons. Win-win.

    • Neilist_Returns

      ::::A-HEM::::

      Although nowadays you CAN get the Galil chambered in 7.62mm x 51mm NATO, the rifle initially was designed around, and chambered for, the 5.56mm x 45mm round, i.e., the same, smaller round used in the US M16 series (nowadays referred to as the M4).

      The reason being that the M16 didn't work very reliably in desert conditions, because of the dust; direct gas system; the inability of the weaker round to cycle the action when the rifle was fouled with sand, dust,etc. (The M4 STILL doesn't work reliably, or all, under such conditions.)

      The IDF realized that they were going to have to use US-supplied 5.56mm ammo if they were going to continue to get the American taxpayer to fund Israel's particular brand of religious and ethnic bigotry. So they came up with Galil, which basically grafts an AK-type pushrod piston system onto an M16-type receiver (the lower part of the rifle).

      Years later, Our Current Friends, The Germans, did pretty much the same thing via the H&K 416. But because the 416 is German, you have to pay about three times as much per unit for it.

      The point is that, when you're trying for comedic effect, don't "muddy the waters" by adding in details that, while technically not impossible, may cause the Discerning Reader to do a "double take" at the wrong part of your story. I am sure that most of the other Wonkies reading your "riff" reacted the same way I did.

      Oh, and in this context, you don't have to put a period after "mm" — unless it is at the end of the sentence, and one of the remaining six stops in the English language is not required. The Discerning Reader will realize that you are referring to "millimeter."

      P.S. Well, perhaps everyone except Negropolis. He'll probably assume you were referring to M&M candies. And then accuse you of "racism" because you didn't mention the "brown and yellow ones" . . . .

      P.P.S. And what the heck is wrong with peas? At least they are green, and thus aren't a bunch of lazy, shiftless, foreign thieves like those brown and yellow M&Ms . . . .

  • x111e7thst

    I'm sure that the sight of St.Sarah stuffing her face with fried food while gabbling her usual incoherent drivel and spraying crumbs in a wide arc will prove deeply energizing to the base.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      The sight would deeply energize my pharyngeal reflex.

      • NorthStarSpanx

        Well, eating these iconic Fair foods with a knife and fork is going to rather dispel the authentic-ness of the moment, won't it?

        • PristinePantalones

          Do the Palins know how to use dining utensils? Somehow I had envisioned them in these outdoor cook-offs, tearing their meat off the bone with their teeth.

            No wonder Levi had to use so many wine coolers!

    • berkeleyfarm

      Barry was the one who said "eat our peas". But Sarah's taken plenty of cheap shots at FLOTUS.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        When the Great White Grifter takes cheap shots, it means she's getting her ammo at Sam's Club. I hope the Secret Service is paying close attention to this situation.

        She's making cheap shots at your mother. At all of our mothers! This time, she goes too far.

        • berkeleyfarm

          Sarah only regards her kids as props, or in the case of her daughters, competition, so that makes sense.

          And, hey, Michelle Obama is hawt (etc. etc.). "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" Sarah's just jealous.

      • PristinePantalones

        She's *still* pissed about losing that beauty pageant title and crown to the sole black woman living in AK.

      • Nothingisamiss

        I did love that. Must remember! An Orson Welles, in disdain during outtakes for a frozen pea commercial, speaking about blow jobs, is more dignified and comprehensible than Lou Sarah in all her speechifyin'.l

    I have a reasonable sense of humor.
    I would like to see this woman as president and her whole klan holed up in the White House.
    I would dearly look forward to her daily briefings and her ‘State of the Union’ speeches.
    Then I would calmly walk onto a golf course during a Thunderstorm and hold my 3-Iron as high up as I could.

    Sweet Jebus. I was in Wahsillysauce, Alaska today and what do we see as a vanity plate while at a stop light on Main Street? COLTER.

    Not snarky, but Saruh is that type of woman who you'd have to put a gun to her head in order for her to eat fatso food. She'd take one bite of the heifer food and then "forget about it" and leave it somewhere, or "accidentally" drop it. At the same time, she will encourage other women to "eat up," and if they lose weight, tell them they're "getting too skinny."

    Naturally, Palin’s email about the trip to the fair includes a dig at President Obama. She writes, “I’m also excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc. I’ll enjoy them in honor of those who’d rather make us just ‘eat our peas’!”

    I wonder who "invited" Sarah to show up at the Iowa State Fair, since the Fair has the reputation of not giving political candidates special treatment when they go to the fairgrounds?
    The CEO of the Fair has stated that Sarah will be treated like any other fairgoer. And the Des Moines television stations are even questioning why she is showing up like a candidate, even though she isn't a candidate.
