(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.

      She has her finger on the pulse of America's prostate, alright.

        I hope it's Tom Coburn's prostate.

    • Rotundo_

      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.

    • 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….

      • 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.

  • 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.

    • DaRooster

      I'm sure that blowing Glen Rice was hard work.

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

  • chicken_thief

    She's just pissed because her application for unemployment was denied.

    • 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.

      • NellCote71

        Then there is the meth runs, especially since the Palins are on the outs with Levi's family.

    • Terry

      An unemployment check wouldn't cover her weekly spending at Taco Bell, let alone any other costs.

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

  • 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.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

      Maybe she'll visit Beijing and straddle the business end of a tank for propoganda photos, like Hanoi Jane.

      • 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…

    • 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.

      • 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.

      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.

      • prommie

        "so often" is a compound adverb modifying "go to."

    • 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.
