new study proves it

Fox News: Americans Overwhelmingly Want Sarah Palin To Disappear

Well hooray for you, Loser McGrifter.A new Fox News poll says 71% of Republicans don’t want quitter-grifter Sarah Palin in the 2012 race. But why? Isn’t she still fun? No? Apparently not. She is a worn-out old circus hag, and even teabaggers have noticed that the only thing she cares about is getting media attention for Sarah Palin. Could the Wasilla creep’s celebrity gravy train finally be breaking down? We hope so! We also hope the Palins do what every white-trash lotto-winning family always does, which is piss through the whole insane fortune in a couple of years and wind up destitute. That toothless crone selling meth in the bathroom at the Anchorage train station in 2020 is likely to be one-time vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin!

Wingnut newsletter NewsMax reports, with apparent glee:

Americans overwhelmingly believe that Sarah Palin should remain out of the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, a new Fox News poll of registered voters reveals …. Among Republicans, 71 percent said the former Alaska governor should stay out of the race, as did 80 percent of Democrats, 66 percent of independents, and 66 percent of tea party members.

The votes among all age groups were similar, from 74 percent to 76 percent No, as were the tally among all income groups.

B-b-but the poors were supposed to vicariously enjoy Sarah Palin’s millionaire private-jet lifestyle! [NewsMax]

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

  • Barb

    I hear that Dicky Cheney was on Laura Ingram's show today and questioned why Palin quit as Governor.

    As of Palin, she can go slide under a gasoline truck and taste her own arterial spray for all I care.

    • comrad_darkness

      "taste her own arterial spray"

      I am so using that. I don't know where, but I am.

      • genxr

        "Enjoy the refreshing taste of your own arterial spray, on the new improved Texas highway system!"

      • Barb

        We just need to say, "thank, but no thanks" to her election to nowhere.

    • Radiotherapy®

      Apparently, for once, like 70% of the population and Cheney agree.

    • Barrelhse

      If she catches on fire I'll piss elsewhere.

    • GOPCrusher

      Meanwhile, people are questioning what reality Cheney was writing about in his memoirs.

    • Neoyorquino

      I didn't think anyone else remembered Sam Kinison.

      • http://Wonkette.com MLHencken

        That makes three of us.

        • KeepFnThatChicken

          Four.

      • MOG2410

        Fondly.

  • comrad_darkness

    See, Democrats are idiots. 100% of them should be praying for the Grifter Queen to win the nomination

    • genxr

      Just more capitulation to what Republicans want. Sigh.

    • AJWjr.

      We tried that with ray-gun, remember?

      • Come here a minute

        And that idiot Bush kid. We got rid of one Bush after one term, nobody will vote for another. He's a joke. Etc., etc.

    • poncho_pilot

      it could be that 20% think it would be really funny if she ran.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Put me in that 20%. The other 80% have no sense of humor.

        • Nothingisamiss

          Amen, my friend. (Biel_ze_Bubba's are people too, my friend.)

    • Dudleydidwrong

      That's the problem with us. We actually care about the nation and can't see the Wasilla Witch coming any closer to the presidency than the front porch of her Alaska igloo. The damn wingnuts care only about themselves and are free to inflict batshit idiots on the country if they think it will benefit them. Maybe we should decide to go down with a laugh, saying, "Fuck it! Palin for prez. It'll be a laugh a minute until the Chinese army marches down Constitution Ave."

  • Mort_Sinclair

    No matter where she goes when she's pissed through all her money and is shuffling across the post-apocalyptic landscape like a Times Square bag lady in January, ye shall know her by her tattooed lip line.

    • DahBoner

      Tammy Faye Baker feels more beautiful without make-up on.

      She's got a belt-sander to take that tatoo makeup off…

    • Jukesgrrl

      New Yorkers will also know her by the fact that she eats her pizza with a plastic fork.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        And the way she drills for the oil in the pepperoni.

    • Ancient_Hacker

      " That toothless crone selling meth in the bathroom at the Anchorage train station in 2020 is likely to be one-time vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin! "

      Please, please, we can't have Sarah in the train station. ( But only because there isn't a single train station in the state. )

      • tessiee

        Trains are socialized transportation anyway.

  • V572 T-Blow

    This clears the field for Rick Perry on his way to election obliteration. Good to snow Alaskunt is still capable of ruining things for the Republicans.

  • baconzgood

    WORN OUT MY WELCOME LIBEL!!!!!

  • GlowneyHouse

    Circus Hag Libel!

  • baconzgood

    I'm one of the 20% who want to watch her run. I also liked 8 Legged Freaks. I wonder if there is a correlation?

    • poncho_pilot

      i'm on the fence about Palin and i liked Waterworld.

    I wonder what People magazine will pay for those pictures, Hmmmmm?

    • Barrelhse

      She'll be the one at the glory hole.

  • Sue4466

    Never one to let facts get in the way, Palin will soon announce that she's running for president because it's what the American People want.

    The liberal media will then follow her around like puppies, proclaiming hers is a grass roots populist run for the White House.

  • SayItWithWookies

    You know you've overreached when even the teabaggers think you're too self-centered to run for president. I wonder if it'll dawn on them that none of her sentences makes a lick of sense.

    • Sue4466

      "Think"? You're given the T'baggers too much credit.

      • http://sickrantorum.com KenLayIsAlive

        Yeah, you don't want them straining their nerve-knots.

    • DahBoner

      No. Not now, not ever….

      "Sense"? You're giving the teabaggers too much credit.

    She's diluting daughter Bristol's brand as well. She can always be the token goy in the Likud party I guess.

  • Guppy06

      5 more years of gravity will do her NO favors.

      • http://sickrantorum.com KenLayIsAlive

        You and your science crap.

    • Negropolis

      But, her only asset is her looks, and another election cycle will only reduce that.

      • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

        Or a couple more babies.

        • Dexter Linwood

          If she's still cranking out babies in the next few years, god bless her.

    • tessiee

      That hardly seems worth bothering with, since there won't be any money left for her to grift by then.

  • Grief_Lessons

    You're a vapid self-promoting opportunist Sarah, but despite this you're too good for the 2012 Republican field.

  • slithytoves

    Let's face it, she's just not the craziest sideshow anymore; we have a bumper crop of the crazies. I would like to thank Palin, however, for demonstrating to this new harvest of rabid egoists that they, too, can have a failed run for the highest office.

    • OneYieldRegular

      If nothing else, she's paved the way for future generations of self-aggrandizing, willfully ignorant, opportunistic reactionaries to run for office.

      • Negropolis

        And fail. It's imperative that we make the point that they fail.

        • Nothingisamiss

          Please, please, please.

  • Radiotherapy®

    She just needs a make-over. Plain and simple. The sexy librarian look is sooo '08. And then, straight to hell, Wasilla will do.

    • SayItWithWookies

      The sexy librarian look should not be attempted by people who a) aren't sexy and b) could never pass for a librarian. She should try a look more in keeping with her appearance and demeanor, like maybe "incompetent Martha Stewart wannabe."

  • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

    Maybe she too much of the intellectual type for this crop of candidates.

    • DahBoner

    • neiltheblaze

      And you'll spend the rest of the evening peeing in the loo. Personally, I was thinking of a shot glass of Jack Daniels for every time she drops a "g" at the end of a word – but I realized I'd die of alcohol poisonin'.

    • GOPCrusher

      I'll be there live. A friend is taking a "WHERE'S CHRISTINE O'DONNELL?" sign.

      • Pristine_ODummy

        It would seem, judging from the wailing and beating of breasts going on at some Conservative sites, that the teabaggage are not pleased that Palin has kicked my namesake to the curb.

        • tessiee

          "beating of breasts"

          My breasts and I would like to go on record stating that we are opposed to this.

          • Pristine_ODummy

            I b'leev the beatings were only applied to breasts of the hairy man-sort, tessiee. Your beautiful breasts are safe.

  • Mahousu

    Perhaps we could export her to China. They've had a long history of obnoxious women in government, from Empress Dowager Lü to Madame Mao, so they should be used to her type. She could be Precious Concubine Sarah (贵妃莎拉) or something like that.

  • DahBoner

    "A new Fox News poll says 71% of Republicans don’t want quitter-grifter Sarah Palin in the 2012 race."

    This can mean only one thing: She's in (until she quits).

    Republicans hate Democracy, and if a majority of people want something, they think it's a sign of their Dictatorship power not to give it to 'em….

    • Scottsdalian

      Ha Ha! I was thinking the same thing! Don't let'm talk you out of it, Sarah. It's your birthright!!!

    Awesome judgment, botards!

    Final piece of advice for the Snowbilly Grifter: Better save that money you made/grifted/whored out for because if I base it on a typical lottery winner's fiscal failing you got about 3 years before you hit bankruptcy court.

    • GOPCrusher

      I'll take the under on that. I'll bet the Palin Clan are already handing out IOU's on the premise that are going to hit the Big Time.

      • berkeleyfarm

    • Pristine_ODummy

      "botards"?

      • http://www.wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

        Yeah. Intensedebate sometimes does not like the word retard and botard is a synonym of the word. Don't know where it came from but it was in common use where I grew up.

    The Snowbilly Quitter quits again, depriving me of the Palin/Bachmann naked jello-wrestling match that some deeply masochistic corner of my psyche was yearning for.

  • owhatever

    It would be tragic if Sarah Palin entered the Republican primary, for that would lower the high level of political discourse and intelligent ideas being cogently discussed by the current candidates. That said, another political run (before she quits) would increase her griftability rating and she could rake in the cash for another couple of years. Count the bitch in!

    How quickly you forget. This woman had the current occupant of the White House totally sussed when she contemptuously pointed out to him that, unlike a Commnity Organizer, she had some "real responsibilities," back then. Come on, what would you rather have: four years of Michelle Obama telling you to eat your vegetables, or the escapades of that loveable scamp, Todd, as he maneuvers the difficult role of being "First Dude!" It's going to be so great when she takes over. Bristol's performance on "Dancing with the Stars" will be the first Commemorative Stamp! (Never forget that Bristol is a Star, of equal luminosity as Chaz Bono.)
