(grifter) evolution is real

Why Is Sarah Palin a Crazy Liberal Communist Now All of a Sudden?

Just call her Che.BUT WHO WILL FIGHT THE GREEDY CORPORATE PIGS RUNNING THE COUNTRY? Haha, you thought, “the Wall Street protesters.” WRONG. “Sarah Palin” is the correct answer, ever since the five or so seconds ago when she vaguely tuned into the fact that the withered teat of her ruthless teabagger fearmongering is drying up, so she must find some other popular cause to exploit. Here is Sarah “Trotsky 2.0″ Palin speaking out against the American kleptocracy from the seat of its tyrannical rule at some random forum in South Korea: “Today, in my country, particularly in the last few years, a new seductive idea has come on the scene. It involves the growing collaboration between big business, big finance, big government and big union bosses.” Ha ha, kind of! Polls show that 145% of sane people would not characterize this phenomenon as either “new” or “seductive,” but that’s Sarah Palin for you, always with her finger on the pulse of America!

Here is the New York Times reporting her call for the WORKERS OF THE WORLD TO UNITE AGAINST THEIR OVERLORDS:

Speaking before a packed hotel convention hall, Ms. Palin urged Americans and other people around the world to fight a system that doesn’t reward “honest hard work” but is “favoring the politically connected.”

In Ms. Palin’s view of the world, “well-connected banks get bailed out”; “certain companies get special deals through governments”; and taxpayer dollars are “given to companies that are run by politicians’ campaign contributors so often.” In return, lobbyists and politicians “slip sweet deals and tax breaks into the tax code that they get to help to write.”

Every one of these statements is a less-pithy version of a Wall Street protester sign somewhere, so please write Sarah Palin a check for providing them with slogan ideas, which she had first. [NYT]

    "always with her finger on the pulse of America!"
    Yep, but it's the middle finger. It's time for us to give it back and ignore her.

        1. Guppy06

          She mailed them all to Putin. His brand of shirtless authoritarianism makes her do things like that.

    1. ifthethunderdontgetya

      Yep. It's how Beck got fired, too.

      You can trash the unions all you want, but don't you dare say a cross word about FAUX's advertisers…Bloated racist Roger Ailes won't sit still for that.

      Oh, I think that ship sailed quite a while ago. Ailes doesn't have much use for her, so I think the days of dropping in on Greta to vent and all those other perks evaporated. If Roger and Rupert can't control you, they aren't going to enable you. Besides which, the whole yokel from Alaska routine even soured with most of the suckers. Not all the suckers, but most of them.

    1. MaxNeanderthal

      Notice how she missed the "big Media" (aka Pox Screws) from the list? Just goes to show that she isn't such a stupid mare as she looks where whoring herself to money's concerned….

      1. Negropolis

        Speaking if missing and misplaced, can someone please tell me how many "big union bosses" are even left? Honestly, I get tired of these false equivalencies as if unions have anywhere near the influence managers and CEOs have, or that they ever did in America. They didn't, even during labor's so-called glory years.

  2. freakishlywrong

    Fuck. This from a grifter who's not done a day of "honest hard work” in her miserable life and has been inexplicably rewarded by being favorably politically connected.

    1. MegPasadena

      She is just jealous of Perry for being MORE well connected and Christie for being MORE popular.

    1. BarryOPotter

      …same as the old bus tour…

      Let's get fooled again!! (Wait, that's not how that song goes…)

    1. KeepFnThatChicken

      if she would be conservative with the millions that Amurka gave her, she would do well. But, alas, having all that Crate & Barrel delivered to Alaska can be kinda pricey.

  3. mavenmaven

    In other words, her former corporate sugar-daddies are now supporting someone else- and she's MAD.

  4. Nostrildamus

    her finger on the pulse of America

    Medically speaking, the anal sphincter is not a particularly good place to measure pulse.

    1. jus_wonderin

      Not a doctor here, but might this depend on whose temperature we are taking and with which tool?

    1. NellCote71

      Shouldn't Alaska be paying the lower 49 for reparations or something. Or perhaps a reconciliation fund?

  5. Guppy06

    Of course she's not including little mom-and-pop, Main Street operations like Exxon-Mobil and News Corp.

  6. proudgrampa

    Oh, she's just pissed off because "big business, big finance, big government and big union bosses" are no longer sending her donations.

    1. Chichikovovich

      She's not getting much action from a "big black shooting guard for Michigan" direction either.

    1. tessiee

      Not as long as there's attention to be focused on her and/or a nickel to be made without her having to know or do anything whatsoever.

    1. BarryOPotter

      You CHEATER!!! You can't ask the question and then Katie it in the same post! This post is disqualified (despite the nice link).

  7. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

    So she's got to go to Korea to find audiences willing to pay to listen to her. Not far enough, Sarah. Try China…they hate big American companies and labor unions. They're your kind of people.

      1. BarryOPotter

        Maybe Georgetown's basketball team is on a goodwill tour around Asia. If they're not well-received in China, La Palin will be there to comfort and console…

    1. SorosBot

      Going to Asia because she can't get an audience in the US? Sarah is a lesser 80s hair metal band, like the Scorpions or Warrant.

      1. Rotundo_

        I can see the used panties selling pretty hot in Japan, she can do kimchi spots on Korean television, I'm sure she can pull enough gigs to stay in shop mode for another few months. If she gets handy with ping pong balls she could keep going in some places over there for years. She'll have to learn to smoke and blow rings with it though, but after the squad she gave birth to it shouldn't be an issue with volume, though perhaps with control.

    "the withered teat of her ruthless teabagger fearmongering is drying up"

    Ahhh, That was like the first sip of morning coffee on a cold winter's day.

  9. MistaEko

    Ms. Palin urged Americans … to fight a system that doesn’t reward “honest hard work” but is “favoring the politically connected.”

  10. Not_So_Much

    She's forgetting which teat feeds her grifting. She's going to get a wheezy call from some Jabba-like character to discuss this and her now-empty bank account soon…

  11. ManchuCandidate

    “certain companies get special deals through governments”; and taxpayer dollars are “given to companies that are run by politicians’ campaign contributors so often.”

    Oh Sarah… you can't even play protester "right." You're in the country (of my cousins) that pretty much invented what you're describing.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaebol

    1. prommie

      I heard the echo, but its meaningless, kinda like that dog that talks, its just noise, means nothing to the dog. And she's not really contradicting her prior "positions" much, half of what she said was coded criticism of the auto bailouts, which the tea-partyers hated. No criticism of big oil, you'll note, the GOP is owned by oil, the democrats by finance, she's just attacking finance as always.

    1. MaxNeanderthal

      This is THE Sarah Palin?
      Yes.
      Sarah "Bury Me in a Y-Shaped Coffin" Palin?
      I – I think there may be two Sarahs —
      No, no… brown hair, glasses,….
      Yes, that's her.
      Goes like a privy door when the plague's in town? Don't worry, you'll get over her. I did.
      Apologies to Blackadder…..

  12. chascates

    "…big business, big finance, big government and big union bosses"

    Aren't those Breitbart web sites?

    1. GOPCrusher

      Sources say that James O'Keefe has shown up at Occupy Wall Street protests and is shooting video.
      Wonder where this will lead?

  13. Goonemeritus

    Sarah ended her comments with don’t trust anyone older than 71 and than raised her fist in the air and screamed “FREE HUEY”.

  14. Callyson

    Yeah–I'm sure the oil companies that enrich Alaska's citizens *never* get any special favors at all…

    1. NorthStarSpanx

      Or Alaskan Mat-Su Valley farmers not asking for a hand-out but demanding that the State create a market for them. . .that's not asking for a hand-out from free-wheelin, givin, progressin Sarah desiring to serve contaminated cheese.

  15. EatsBabyDingos

    Mrs. Dingo the shop steward is proud that her $13.23 an hour makes her an elite, but if you call her a "big union boss" she will put you in the center seat on the back row of the 737.

      1. Katydid

        I got a new job in Corporate America, and they monitor Internet access. I don't dare go onto Wonkette, the perversion and the filth would get me fired for sure…to say nothing of the comments!

        But I read every day on my iPhone…I couldn't remember my login for awhile, but now that I do, I'll be back!

  16. Lascauxcaveman

    Assuming for a moment she's not being completely disingenuous (lol, yeah, I know), my reaction is: "You're just now figuring this shit out?"

    My second reaction would be: "If you weren't such a fucking idiot, you'd be welcome to join us cool kids over here."

  17. An_Outhouse

    "campaign contributors so often" what? Is there a verb missing there? I'd like to think campaign contributors so often participate in orgies, but that's just me.

    1. SenileAgitation

      "run by politicians’ campaign contributors so often.” It's more of her brand of tortured trying-to-sound-smart-ness. Perhaps she meant "so often run by politician's campaign contributors." So often! As in sometimes, at times. Needs more "However, too, yet, also, but, though" randomly sprinkled like last year's Bacos™ brand imitation bacon bits. And thank you NYT for continuing to provide us with updates on her every meaningless utterance.

    2. tessiee

      "I'd like to think campaign contributors so often participate in orgies, but that's just me"

      It's not just you; they'd like to think that, too.

  18. edgydrifter

    She only said it in Korea because she figured we wouldn't be able to hear her from way over there. Bitch is double-dealin' on us.

  19. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Clearly she has figured she has taken the Conservatives for about as much money as possible, so now it is time to start grifting the left.

  20. Come here a minute

    Ms. Palin urged Americans and other people around the world to fight a system that doesn’t reward “honest hard work” but is “favoring the politically connected.”

    Connecting with Bill Kristol and winding up on the 2008 GOP ticket were totally coincidental and unrelated events. It was all hard work.

  21. SaintRond

    Maybe it'll bring some Tea Baggers in, which can't hurt, I guess. Republicans tremble before Tea Baggers and that's not a bad thing, I guess. I like seeing them scared. In a perfect world, I'd have a gig saying prayers as I walk them trembling in terror to the gallows, but realistically speaking, just a little fear is nice too.

    But still… When it's all said and done… What can you say? I mean, what can you say?

    That cunt.

  22. elviouslyqueer

    “Today, in my country, particularly in the last few years, a new seductive idea has come on the scene. It involves the growing collaboration between big business, big finance, big government and big union bosses.”

    Et tu, Snowbilly?

  23. SorosBot

    Since when has there ever been collaboration between big business and big union bosses? They're normally enemies, Sarah.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      In the 40s through the 70s, when they were carving up the prosperity left by the ruins of Europe to create a pretend-middle class? In the '60s, when some hippies needed beating up? In the 80s through today, when the union bosses sold off the pretend-middle class, tax bracket by tax bracket, in order to preserve what few union jobs are left?

  24. Cicada

    Sarah is just peddling the old conservative populist schtick that's been around forever. It's those damn elitist (Ivy league and/or at the very least Jewish) guvmint and business types joining up with those damn (communist and/or brown) union thugz to destroy the lives of Real Americans™.

    BIRCHER LIBEL.

  25. Biel_ze_Bubba

    Can't wait to hear what she says in North Korea. (Never hearing from her again would also be sweet.)

  26. Antispandex

    "In return, lobbyists and politicians “slip sweet deals and tax breaks into the tax code that they get to help to write."

    But she didn't say anything about it when Bush was President! You see? That's her genius right there! By the time she is ready to not run for presidet again, her "base" will have forgotten, or it can be spun to leave out the obvious conclusion. Et Voila! More money, still not President!

    1. SheriffRoscoe

      Hey if Todd has figured out a way to stay aroused listening to her voice, it should theoretically work for other guys, too.

  27. owhatever

    See? She got that North Korea – South Korea thing straightened out. Old dogs can learn. Now she can speak for cash in places abroad, like in Vanilla, capital of the Philippines, and in Bangkok, Thighland.

  28. El Pinche

    OT sort of, but the real question is who will grifter endorse? Will she follow Crispy Cream Christie's lead? Or will go she go full-Trig with Perry?

  29. Eve8Apples

    If the Tundra Twat can speak about “honest hard work," I'm qualified to lecture on quantum physics and Buddhist philosophy.

  30. littlebigdaddy

    She's grifting the South Koreans now? I guess that's the grifter's m.o.–move on to the next town when people wise up.

  31. NorthStarSpanx

    Sarah, that north country you can see from land, right there in South Korea, is what America would look like if you and your teatard friends got their hands on it. Oppression from your narrow hypocritical righteousness wouldn't look any different than what they got going on right now.

  32. OneYieldRegular

    Yes, quite a brilliant observation: big business and big labor unions are marching lockstep/goosestep in perfect harmony. Same as it ever was. Moran.

  33. HempDogbane

    Does anyone else remember that scene in one of the Dos Passos books where Sarah Palin is pulling a train? She was a little Wobbly !

  34. Redhead

    You mean Palin will say whatever she has to say to get attention regardless of its content and consistency with her past comments/positions? Well I for one am shocked, shocked I say!

  35. tessiee

    So, are big business and big unions on the same side now, or did she "think" she could just sneak that one past us, and we wouldn't notice?

  36. ttommyunger

    The only people dumber than Palin were the clods who invested their time and money to listen to her.

  37. lulzmonger

    Shorter Palin: now that I'm ineligible for all that sweet sweet DC gravy, I"M AGAINST IT!

    Happiness is a warm pre-paid speaking engagement.
