Karl Rove Forces Media to Write Another ‘Will Sarah Palin Run?’ Story

Oh, look whose handlers discovered fish-eye lenses and sepia filters! Insipid reality teevee grandma Sarah Palin released another mind-numbing Internet home movie about signing autographs in Iowa to share, for whatever reason, who needs a reason? Rat-faced freak show Karl Rove excitedly predicts she released this video because she is finally planning to jump into the presidential race on September 3 at a major Iowa Tea Party remedial reading seminar that she will keynote, but we predict it’s because Sarah Palin still wants cash, and we will always be right. How do American voters feel about this exciting news?

Hmm, today’s Rasmussen poll shows that a Sarah Palin victory against Obama hovers right next to the odds of giant thunderstorms of dildos raining down on Earth.

From Rasmussen:

If Election Day was right now, President Obama would defeat the former Alaska governor 50% to 33%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. This marks the first time that the president has risen out of the 40s in hypothetical matchups with any of the major GOP presidential hopefuls. Fifteen percent (15%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided….

Last month, Obama posted a 47% to 38% lead over Palin, the GOP’s unsuccessful vice presidential candidate in 2008.

Palin earns support from 62% of Republicans, while 88% of Democrats back the president. Voters not affiliated with either party prefer Obama by a 51% to 30% margin.

Obama holds a narrow 44% to 38% lead over Palin among male voters, but women prefer the incumbent by a sizable 56% to 29% margin.

Hi-larious. It’s sweeter poison than reading the economic newz, if “disgust” is your fetish. [YouTube/Slate/Rasmussen]

    "Obama holds a narrow 44% to 38% lead over Palin among male voters, but women prefer the incumbent by a sizable 56% to 29% margin."

    Women are smarter, always knew it.

    1. Nostrildamus

      Or possibly women are less capable of appreciating the intellectual weight of a nice pair of tits.

        1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

          Little known fact, but all major decisions in human history have been made based upon who had the best tits.

          1. MichelesPantalones

            My ex told me that, but since she had a splendiferous pair, I just assumed she was biased.

      1. LetUsBray

        I'm just trying to figure out how so many dudes can be so impervious to that boner-wilting voice with its testicle-imploding snideness.

  2. memzilla

    This is bad news for the Koch Bruddahs.

    I used to wonder whether it was Charles or David who had the 666 tattoo just aft of his hairline. Now, I figure there's nothing in the Jeebus Book that would rule out twins who each have 333 there…

    1. Limeylizzie

      Well, that will last about 2 months, he is such a nasty piece of work and was such a lousy Governor.

  3. PuckStopsHere

    My God. I live in a country where fully a third of the populace believes Shrillbilly to be capable of being president. "A Democracy, madam, if you can keep it." Sorry, Franklin. We cannot, I fear.

    1. Swampgas_Man

      Eh, same third that thought W was doing a bang-up job. Getting rid of the literacy test for voting was a mistake.

    2. Ohforcripessake

      Don't worry. This only proves that stupid people are more likely to participate in telephone polls.

    3. Negropolis

      It's always been about a third. I wish it were less, but it doesn't scare me any more than the third who stuck on to Bush even after Katrina.

      1. mumbly_joe

        I believe the crazification factor hypothesis put the number at 28-30%, so slightly less than one third. The remaining 8-10% comes from Rassmussen's long-standing, systematic partisan statistical bias.

  4. MichelesPantalones

    Srsly. Her fifteen minutes is currently at 14:58. She is so fucking done that I will be truly amazed if she's dumb enough to jump in to the race. Karl is just terrified that one of the two godbags on the slate will win, thus destroying the Republican party forever and ever, and after he promised them such a glorious Fourth Reich, too. He's hoping Sarah can be goaded into running and pulling support from Ricardo Perez and Mishmash BatShitKrayZMann. Sarah's pretty stupid but also pretty shrewd, and she can smell blood in the water, so she'll rake in the last few bux and step out with her Fox contract $$ intact. Let's see what KKKarl does for an encore.

      1. MichelesPantalones

        True. She's like some kind of horrible genital rash, or something. Once you catch it, you never *really* get rid of it. Every time the temperature goes over 85, it's talcum powder and a wide-legged stance as you air your violently itching balls out.

    1. subsum

      She'll stay in the spotlight for as long as she can rake in some dough. That includes stepping out of it for short periods of time to avoid causing too much character fatigue. The broad knows her thing and she'll step on whomever she has to to stay relevant.

      I mean, think about it: being a political celebrity is all she's got. She's getting older and the GMILF story's about to fade away. Aside from giving the Koch brothers a boner she's of no use to them. Once her looks are gone she'll be gone.

      1. MichelesPantalones

        The C4P folks will stay loyal to the bitter end! Just like the loonies over at Hillaryis44.

    1. johnnyzhivago

      It has to be some sort of legal or moral violation of the dignity of bits and bytes to be arranged in a manner that transmits that dumb fuck over the internet.

  5. Steverino247

    It would seem that 38% of men want to masturbate on Election Day. Good government depends upon the prurient interest of every citizen. Uh, paraphrasing Thomas Jefferson there.

    1. Blendergoathead

      Whatever. I masturbate at least once *every* day, elections or not – and I sure as hell am not envisioning the snowbilly grandma… unless it's a tag-team with her daughter.

      Ew, i just scared myself. Bleh.

    2. SorosBot

      In what respect? I find it hard to believe any man could masturbate while having the image of that hag in their head. And that voice, ugh…

    3. Negropolis

      If by 38% of men, you mean 100%, and if by Election Day you mean Erection Day, and if you by Erection Day you mean every day, then yes, "it would seem that 38% of men want to masturbate on Election Day."

  6. Nostrildamus

    Palin earns support from 62% of Republicans, while 88% of Democrats back the president.

    With appropriate (Wisconsin-style) anti-voter-fraud measures, Palin will carry 61% of the vote.

    1. Radiotherapy®

      Her unfavorable numbers haven't changed despite all her losing, quitting, stupidity and übergrifting. Yet they still keep fucking that $$$$ chicken.

      1. Callyson

        Every closeted politician who votes against gay rights?
        Thus giving the Dems a super – majority…

      2. MichelesPantalones

        Richard Perle
        Paul Wolfowitz
        Paul "Jerry" Bremer
        Monica Goodling
        Al Fredo Gonzales
        Scooter Libby
        G.H.W. and Barbara Bush

        Ah, fuck it. All of them, Katie!

  7. Mumbletypeg

    Did I hear that silhouetted grizzly bear at the end, its back arched as if wounded by gunshot, mutter under its breath "You can't make this shit up"?

    1. flamingpdog

      Actually, you can make this shit up, and Mama Grizzly does it all the time. That's the scary part.

  8. V572 T-Blow

    Why do pollsters always ask, "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?" It makes no sense to ask someone how they would vote in a non-existent election. Instead, why don't they ask, "Could you really be stupid enough to vote for the Alaskunt® in November 2012?"

  9. MissusBarry

    I'm torn between the feelings of impending vomit and laughter. The line between scorn and outright hatred is so thin. I think I'll go with all of them, Katie.

  10. ManchuCandidate

    The GOPers already have the wingnutty candidate, the dumb candidate, the crazy female candidate and the jeebus candidate. I think they've got Palin pretty much covered.

    Still, I think she should run just for the comedy.

    1. zhubajie

      "Still, I think she should run just for the comedy."

      Yes, I agree! Cage match, Palin vs Bachman vs Odonell vs Perry!

  11. BlueStateLibel

    Pollsters should actually be asking: if the election was held today, and Sarah Palin was actually on the ballot, would you a) break down hysterically laughing, or b) kill yourself.

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      "inexplicably sent an offensive and racist email…"

      Ha ha…for some reason that's never happened to me.

      1. SorosBot

        It's wrong too; it's totally explicable, she's a Republican, that's all you need to know. I'm just surprised that she didn't also throw in a gay joke (I mean, I don't know if Lewis is gay, but he certainly seems quite fabulous for an athlete).

    2. Callyson

      Jennifer Delany's email to Lewis' campaign said, in part, "Imagine having dark skin and name recognition and the nerve to think that equaled knowing something about politics."
      Change that to "white skin" and you've described Sarah Palin to a T. Bitch.

      1. Texan_Bulldog

        "Imagine being a movie star with name recognition and having the nerve to think that equaled knowing something about politics." Sound familiar?

        1. emmelemm

          Imagine being a writer on a late-night sketch comedy show with a little name recognition and having the nerve to think that equaled knowing something about politics!

          The nerve, I tells ya.

          1. weejee

            And imagine a fourteen five-year five-college undergradumacated sports newsie using that celebrity to run for mayor and governor?

            The unmitigated gall. Gall stones, too, also.

    3. MichelesPantalones

      Geezus. And the fecking yahoos over there are already jisming their shorts over that racist Maxine Waters, who's much much worse than some cunt who writes a black man some incredibly racist email for no reason whatsoever. I swear, I picked a terrible time to quit drinking.

      1. SorosBot

        And once again, the GOP and the media will conflate judging people over their chosen ideology with judging people over immutable characteristics like race, gender or sexual orientation. Sigh.

        1. MichelesPantalones

          You're assuming they actually think that much. I think it's more like "HULK SEE BLACK. HULK SMASH!" Their tiny little amygdalas are constantly on TERROR ALERT RED.

          1. MichelesPantalones

            Nips? I'm more accustomed to lacerations requiring sopping up of blood. Also screaming. Nips, I can handle.


    4. Jukesgrrl

      Even sadder than her E-mail: the hundreds of comments below the article on Yahoo News, most of which feature some version of, "How can that be racist? It's true."

  12. Texan_Bulldog

    Come on in, Snowbilly, the water's fine. That also goes for Giuliani, The Donald, George Pataki and the rest of the crazies. The more people see the Republican party for what it is, the better!

  13. Boredw/Gravitas

    "Rat-faced freak show Karl Rove"

    Oh, thanks for that one, Kirsten. I laffed my cocktail right through my nose.

  14. Callyson

    Palin: "I think we're seeing a great awakening of the American public."
    Rasmussen: If Election Day was right now, President Obama would defeat the former Alaska governor 50% to 33%
    God bless America…at least, 50% of it…

  15. randcoolcatdaddy

    Is Sarah Palin running?

    Of course she is … as quickly as she can towards any demon spawn of hell that waves a few dollars in front of her face…

  16. Come here a minute

    Karl, it's not going to be that easy to get rid of your buddy Rick Parry, but thanks for trying!


      Outside of a bus, a book is a candidate's best friend. Inside of a bus it's too dark to write.

  17. FannyBurney

    Why doesn't this cheesy, phony-patriotic carnival act just cut to the chase and ask her fans to stuff dollar bills in her g-string? It would be more honest.

  18. flamingpdog

    I made it through the first 1:12 of the video. Then Sarah started speaking. I have a congenital hearing impairment. It's times like 1:12 into the video that I wish I were totally deaf …

    1. BlueStateLibel

      Yeah, I remember that, he almost knocks her in the face with his shoulder. Such a Texas gentleman!

    2. tcaalaw

      The most dangerous place in the world is being between Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, and a press op!

  19. smitallica

    This is RASMUSSEN, people. If that rightwing propaganda fudgery says Barry wins 50% to 33%, the actual numbers are more like 75% to 18%.

    1. Radiotherapy®

      Exactly, the funny thing is that the MSM (and their polestars) want her to run. They created this Frankengrifter and they are addicted to her ratings.

    2. zhubajie

      Why does anyone take polls seriously any more, anyway? Why don't they just make up the rumors they want to hear? I have more faith in dreams, visions, astrologers, sheep guts inspected by Mesopotamian and Etruscan specialists.

  20. flamingpdog

    "Will Sarah Palin Run?"
    Listening to Sarah Palin speak gives me the runs.

  21. Barb

    Okay, let's all predict and come back here to see how we did on our guess. They are speculating that she will announce on Sept 3rd. I say that she WILL run.

    1. hollywooddood

      I don't think she will, Barb. Not enough money in it and the Teabagger Republican clown car is already overloaded with stupid.

        1. Radiotherapy®

          holly's observation is cogent, but I'm with you Barb, she is an unpredictable sociopath. Who knows how that brain works (or a full 1/3 of Americans for that matter), but I don't think she could stand the sidelines while all that money and fame drives by in the clown car.

        2. weejee

          I'd agree with you on this Barb, except she has that for pay bit with Beck in St. Louis in October. I say she keeps griftin'.

        3. Doktor Zoom

          Sarah will run. She is far too narcissistic not to.

          For that matter, after she loses the primaries, she will probably run as an independent.

          After she loses, she will insist she is President.

          And then she will resign, proclaiming "Mission Accomplished"

          1. LetUsBray

            I agree with you that her narcissism will impel her to run, although maybe she won't announce til after her big pay-date with BFF Glenn Beck.

            Then she'll quit before Christmas when she realizes it's hard and her fourth-place status means she's not getting showered with gifts like she expects.

    2. SorosBot

      I don't think she'll run either; Sarah is all about the money, and there's no profit in actually running for president, why she'd actually have to spend some of that PAC cash instead of laundering it into her own bank account.

    3. BlueStateLibel

      I think she'll run, but only because she knows she won't be able to keep grifting if she doesn't. It'll give her at least another year to collect from the rubes. And then she can say she's a "former presidential" candidate, which Fox News will also use to try to bolster her crappy credentials.

      1. AJWjr.

        I'm more concerned that MSNBC will hire her, the same way they did Pat Buchanan and Michael Steele. Those two have cost that network me as a viewer. ARE YOU READING THIS RACHEL?

    4. Barb

      I want her to tell the American people her education record:
      1978-1982: Wasilla High School, diploma, 2.2 GPA1982: Hawaii Pacific College (dropped out)1983: North Idaho Community College (dropped out)1984-1985: University of Idaho (dropped out)1985: Matanuska-Susitna Community College, AK (dropped out)1986-1987: University of Idaho, BA Communications

      1. flamingpdog

        Yeah, but Barb, Sarah went to five colleges, while Barry only went to three, so he's only 3/5 as edumacated as Sarah!

    5. ShaveTheWhales

      I've spent more time thinking about this than I should have done. It's hard to predict the behavior of someone whose mental processes you don't even want to understand.

      My default position was, no, she won't run, because it would cut into her cash flow. However, she's not actually hitting that many big paydays any more, and she has, presumably, accumulated several million Ameros from her patsies. What changed my mind, ultimately, was remembering that she is not only a grifter but also a true famewhore.

      You just don't get the same degree of adulation from a however-friendly paying crowd as you do from a political rally. So, I'm going with narcissism — YES, she will run. And if she's going to run, why not declare on Sep 3, when it will interfere with the coverage of Obama's "jobs plan speech".

          1. berkeleyfarm

            That's an interesting theory but I think she'd rather try to take on only Barry instead of the whole Anniversary thing.

          2. ShaveTheWhales

            Interesting point. I see a few reasons why she won't do that.

            (1) The memorial events may be sufficiently moving that they would overshadow her announcement. The 11th is a Sunday, so she wouldn't get on any of the Sunday shows for another week (of course, she could announce on the 9th, I suppose, but then she'd be splitting time with 9/11 retrospectives/blather).

            (2) It's just remotely possible that some non-hardcore-bagger voters might regard the timing as, you know, tacky.

            (3) Even the "liberal" MSM might be unable to completely ignore the fact that 9/11 occurred during Bush's administration.

            BTW, you'll notice that none of these reasons was "She might realize that it would be terribly disrespectful".

    6. berkeleyfarm

      I think so too. The real pool is for when she makes up some excuse (probably using her human-shield spawn) to quit and get back to the regular grifting.

    7. Negropolis

      I've always said that Sarah has two conflicting forces working on her. The first force is the one that wants attention, and the second force is the one pure and utter depraved greed. This would seem to rule out the presidency, since the two don't exactly meet high enough on the graph for her – that is to say that she could make a helluva lot more money and get a helluva lot more attention on television – but, I have a this sick feeling that'll she'll run since she's already had practice in turning conventional politics right on its head. I think she's found a way to make those two forces meet high enough on her graph to make a run worth it for her.

    8. HistoriCat

      September 12 – you get past those 9/11 anniversary memorials and the media is hungry for more.

    9. GOPCrusher

      The prediction has been that she will run since it was announced that she is giving the keynote address at the Tea Bagger Rally and Dove Hunt on Sept 3rd.
      In fact they have moved the festivities from The Living History Farms to Indianola where the hot air balloon championships used to be held, in preparation of the thousands they expect to show up for The Second Coming.

    10. Nostrildamus

      I predict she will continue to tread the line between running and not running, to the point where she will have active campaign workers but remain a commentator on Fox. The story about whether she's running or not will become the story, dominating the headlines of even respectable news outlets. She will raise non-commitment to a true art form. This will be a turning point of our democracy.

  23. mavenmaven

    If indeed her plan to rebuild 'Merka is "do what we know" then we are in poor shape indeed.
    "doggoneit… "

  24. Rotundo_

    If it wasn't possible that one of these jackholes could end up president through a combination of the left staying home in frustration and the right showing up for anyone who isn't black, it would be great fun to watch them try to morph into something vaguely electable. Think of the intellectual contortions these guys are making to look like they aren't psychotic frothing nuts trying to drive the economy of the US in the toilet so we can become a third world manufacturing power again (or whatever the hell they're fucking doing besides lining their pockets and their puppetmasters pockets). RIcky already is turning inside out over Social Security, what are the rest of these morons going to do to top that? (Edited to add: The Aristocrats?)

  25. Sue4466

    33% would vote for Palin? What the hell? I'm guessing it's the same folks who believe in the devil, think we faked the moon landing, believe Elvis is alive (and are glad Tupac is not, cause you know, black).

  26. the_problem_child

    Is disgust anyone's fetish? I mean, could you fetishize that feeling and simultaneously get off?

  27. not that Dewey

    Neil deGrasse Tyson to the NYTimes, when asked what he would do if he were president:

    Our government doesn’t work — not because we have dysfunctional politicians, but because we have dysfunctional voters. As a scientist and educator, my goal wouldn’t be to lead a dysfunctional electorate…

    Despite the moronic premise of the question, he handled himself pretty well, without saying "what is this? Eighth grade?" to the reporter.

    1. emmelemm

      Neil deGrasse Tyson is a bad-ass motherfucker.

      No, seriously, that guy is awesome. (I briefly worked in a university department with him, so I've met him a few times.) He's gone on to bigger and better things. No one's going to save this place, but he'll give it a valiant effort.

      1. not that Dewey

        I'm envious.

        There's something about astrophysicists that gives them, oh I don't know, perspective. The good ones are also quite adept at using precise, intentional language, which also helps.

        1. not that Dewey

          It was either that or promote 300+ asteroids and Kuyper Belt objects. You expect American children to sit still through science class? Neil's just being a realist, man.

          1. SorosBot

            Yeah; look at all the Kupier Belt objects discovered, if Pluto was kept as a planet it would either require adding way too many other objects as official planets, or just keeping an anomalous body as a planet based on an accident of history, because it was easier to find, even though it's obviously not a planet like the core eight. It was the right call, though unpopular.

          2. not that Dewey

            It's only because Tombaugh's telescope was unable to resolve Pluto and Charon into two distinct objects (which didn't happen until the 70s) that it even got considered in the first place. It has a non-repeating, chaotic orbit that does not lie in the plane of the solar system, and there are dozens of solar system objects larger than Pluto. WTF? I fail to see the scandal.

        2. flamingpdog

          Pluto was the only planet discovered by a 'Mur'cun. Neil deGrasse Tyson, why do you hate America?

        3. emmelemm

          Oh shit, that WAS him, wasn't it? I forgot about that.

          Well, that just proves my point. He's a BAMF, knockin out planets and shit.

      2. DashboardBuddha

        Agreed. Plus, his vests rock. Does he wear them when not on the show? If only I could find them in big & tall sizes.

    1. iburl

      He's too busy running errands for his secret masters to be bothered with such a symbolic office. They like to leave that work to easily controllable puppets like Reagan, Bushies, Obama and Perry.

  28. hilbillyheroine

    So, she already held the family hootenanny to get their "hell yeah's"? She's gotta get that first…gather her slobbering slack-jaws at her knee, and then ask them THE QUESTION: "well, gosh-darn it, the exceptionalism is just so there lacking for the greatness and patriotism that those of us are so needing very badly, and America has gotten to be put back on tract, there in that city on a hill. Mama needs your blessing". Something like that, cuz that's how MAMA GRIZZLY rolls.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      I can't believe that poor, sad little munchkin who thought she was on a family vacation in New Hampshire would shout, "Hell, yeah." I think she's about ready to yell for a union membership if she has to be Trig's nanny for one more week. Seriously, that child needs therapy.

  29. fuflans

    this is not necessarily appropriate of snowgrifter but my cat fucking LOVES arcade fire.

    and katy perry.

  30. FidoMcCokefiend

    I think the big question is who the fuck are the 12% of Democrats that support Palin in that poll?

  31. donner_froh

    I am trying to avoid seeing or listening to Sarah Palin. Especially hearing that voice–it sounds like 10 inch circular saw hitting a big knot in a while going through a board.

  32. Warpde

    "Obama holds a narrow 44% to 38% lead over Palin among male voters."

    That is until the wet t-shirt contest.
    Obama 99%. Palin……..Do relatives count?

  33. Negropolis

    It'd be just like Sarah to wait until the last minute when the field is already settled to do a cannonball into this pool of candidates. Hopefully, it's shallow enough to injure her chances, as well.

    Yes, run, Sarah. Run!

    BTW, this was the most telling figure in the entire poll:

    Obama holds a narrow 44% to 38% lead over Palin among male voters, but women prefer the incumbent by a sizable 56% to 29% margin.

    Come on, dudes. Think with your head. The big one, not the little one, por favor.

    1. Fukui_sanYesOta

      "It'd be just like Sarah to wait until the last minute when the field is already settled to do a cannonball into this pool of candidates. Hopefully, it's shallow enough to injure her chances, as well. "

        ZOMG, it's a good thing I'm an atheist becoz if there was a hell, I would surely end up there for LMFAO at this.

  34. Jukesgrrl

    If Bible Spice finds out how many Yahoo searches that Kardashian wedding got today (WAY more than the recent royal wedding), she will be marching Bristol down the aisle in a Vera Wang extravaganza in a matter of days. Can't you just see her commandeering the wedding toast to make her announcement?

        I've often wondered that myself. It seems to refer to a group of youngish females who all look surprisingly alike, and very much like their mother. Enough to make one wonder about parthenogenesis, anyway. I can't understand exactly what it is they *do,* since I've never heard of them except as celebrities.

      Bristol, honey — I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but SARAH PALIN IS THE BEST REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE OF ALL TIME

      How would the potential groom be located? With the help of the traditional shotgun?

      Sarah was smart to hold off on the wedding last time to see if they still needed him after the election. Turns out, no, so under the bus he went.

        I was going to say Levi, but maybe they could cross pop-culture streams & snare Maci's estranged baby-father from Teen Mom. He seems like enough of a refined redneck — by which I mean, he listens to country but dresses like Travis from Blink-182 — to have appeal both to Bristol & Bristol's mom's base.

          Levi's way gone under the bus. The post-Levi BFs have scampered as well. But I think you have a good idea there. I bet he likes wine coolers.

      Bristol would have to have a sex tape "stolen" first. Then she could build up to the big wedding.

    How the fuck is she a "Presidential hopeful"? Because she hopes to be President? I think not!

    There is no chance that Sarah will run in 2012, she is waiting for Willow's out-of-wedlock pregnancy in 2016, to be followed by a second term and Piper's unplanned pregnancy in 2020, when she will narrowly beat Oprah Winfrey

    I can't decide whether Palin came up with this on her own or if elements of the Republican establishment pushed her to do it to splinter Bachmann and Perry's support and smooth Mitt's path to the nomination.

      Or the military industrial entertainment complex needs to boost their TV ratings and cultivate a new crop of reality teevee stars.

      Hmmm. Should we really give them that much credit for organization? They're devious enough to DO it, I'm just not sure they're smart enough to think of it. (So don't go talking to Rinse the Prius anytime soon.)

    Jim Thompson had these kinds of characters down pat, even down to the clothes they wear. Sarah Palin easily could have done the wardrobe for "The Grifters."

    In all those Jim Thompson books, there's a young female crook in love with a young male crook. But the young male crook always has a mom who's totally ruthless and dresses just like Sarah Palin and who despises the young female crook who's messing with her baby boy. And ultimately, some hideous secret is always revealed at the end and it's nearly always INCEST.

    That cunt.

    The two things that aren't clear to me at this point are:
    a.) How is Sarah the victim, and
    b.) How will Obama cave?

    This is 2011, people! Palin is the victim and Obama caves: PVOC or GTFO.

    I'm surprised someone hasn't already filmed a pilot about the hilarious hijinks in the Palin White House: "Beverly Hillbillies" meets "The West Wing."
