grifter´s downfall

Sarah Palin Reduced To Hosting Dinners At Disneyworld

Damaged-goods dingbat Sarah Palin is so unpopular and forgotten these days that only Florida’s state GOP wants her around, at a trade-show rubber-chicken dinner, at Disneyworld. Palin has apparently accepted an offer to jabber for a few minutes in exchange for a platter of convention food and a bag of soiled dollar bills. But she’s not even the Star Attraction! According to the event’s flyer, printed out in Microsoft Word by a temp employee, evil cue-ball Rick Scott and one of his fake minions (“chairman Lenny Curry,” sure) are the actual headliners.

From TampaBay.com:

“This gala dinner comes just a year before one of the most important elections in Florida and the nation’s history,” said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry. “Having a Republican leader of Governor Palin’s stature and importance is yet again proof of the crucial role Florida will play as the year unfolds. We are so grateful that Governor Palin has accepted our invitation.”

“So grateful,” meaning, “Herman Cain wanted two hundred dollars.” [Tampa Bay]

          The signs for that would be a real hoot, "You must be this girthy and lengthy to ride Dumbo" I wonder if they would have a photo op like spash mountain to go with it (Picture of purple faced 300 pounder slamming away at Grifter's behind with one hand on the small of her back and one giving a big thumbs up to the guy in the Goofy suit with the camera)

    • memzilla

      She raised her price??!

      I might do Bristol for a grand, but if I gotta do Bible Spice, too, I'm gonna hold out for at least five figures.

    I believe this dinner will be free… but they'll be charging $1000 a head to leave.

      Hahaha, because that's where you make the REAL munnies.

    • GOPCrusher

      True story.
      Knew a couple that made a trip to the Bakker's Xtian Amusement Park. When they went inside the theatre to watch the taping of 700 Club, the ushers locked the doors and Jim Bakker came out on stage and told the audience that the doors would not be unlocked until they had collected 50,000 dollars from the audience. Every time the collection plates where returned to the front, the take was counted and this continued for four long hours until the 50,000 was raised.
      Once the doors were unlocked, the majority of the people went back to their hotel rooms, packed their stuff and bee lined out of the parking lot.

    • Negropolis

      What a dilemna. On one hand, she's a grifter, and a grifter never leaves before procuring the full benefit of the dinner (i.e. dessert). On the other hand, she's a quitter.

    "…a Republican leader of Governor Palin’s stature and importance…"

    Where I'm from, that's called sarcasm.

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

    “ 'This gala dinner comes just a year before one of the most important elections in Florida and the nation’s history,' said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry. 'Having a Republican leader of Governor Palin’s stature and importance is yet again proof of the crucial role Florida will play as the year unfolds. We are so grateful that Governor Palin has accepted our invitation.' "

    Good Lord, I need a 6-pack of paper towels to clean up the sarcasm dripping from that.

    LEMMY is gonna be there?!?!

    Oh… Lenny… nevermind…

    Actually, this is wholly appropriate, because Walt Disney, although fun for kids, was pretty right-wing.

      I think I was the only kid who grew up hating Walt Disney.

      But I was always weird.

    Its time for the Spinal Tap crew to do a mocumentary based on the Snowbilly Grifter, her career arc is too much resembling Spinal Tap right now, this gig being the equivalent of the Spinal Tap gig at the Air Force base. They would kill, just kill, with this stuff. Think Anna Faris as Palin (Tina Fey is just not going to have the range for this schizo-beast, she only plays herself). For Tawd, I see Kevin Spacy. Just trust me.

    • prommie

      Tina Fey is the greek female Woodie Allen. Meh; I am underwhelmed. Had to get that off my chest.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com Pristine_ODummy

      So, how soon can you get it set up, prommie?

    Is Disney having a Quitter Night?

  • Slim_Pickins

    Florida or Alaska in January, even the Twittering Quitter (TM) can handle that one.

  • iburl

    I had the Mad Hatter bother us last time I had a meal at Disney World. Same diff.

  • BornInATrailer

    She's gonna be pissed when she goes to Animal Kingdom and Jesus isn't riding the carnosaur.

    • Ducksworthy

      She could check out the creation museum in KY. They have that.

    “This gala dinner comes just a year before one just in time for the Alaskan grift-quitter to cancel at the last minute." – Fixed.

    Tomorrowland is a good place. I hope Sarah goes and sees it.

    RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry

    Make that ROTFL Chairman Lenny and it might make sense.

  • WriteyWriterton

    So her migration from Wasilla to Orlando could be called continental grift, amirite?

  • fuflans

    i hope they make her ride the 'small world' thingee over and over.

  • JoshuaNorton

    OT – cue the insane yelling and screaming!!

    We just had another earthquake in San Francisco!! It's hard to type when your office chair is bouncing across the floor with you still in it.

    • MissTaken

      For sure! I'm 26 floors up and nearly pissed my pants during it.

    • berkeleyfarm

      I felt it out in my office in Benicia. Got a GOOD shake from the aftershock when I finally got home. Will be sleeping with keys in pocket tonight!

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com Pristine_ODummy

      You guys! It was a lousy 3.9! Time was when people didn't even bother complaining until it hit, like, a 5!

      Although I'm glad I put earthquake bracing on the bookshelves by the bed — all kinds of stuff went flying everywhere, but the really heavy books stayed safely ABOVE our heads, not ON them. Thankyewjeebus.

    RPOF? Rpof? Was he the guy between Yuri Andropov and Constantin Chernenko in the USSR's Late Post-Classical Era?

  • Ducksworthy

    Scott has outgrifted Palin many times over. Of course, to be fair, she hasn't tried Medicare fraud yet.

  • Jukesgrrl

    Apparently the word "gala" has a different meaning than it used to.

  • comrad_darkness

    You know, I knew this day would come and I was looking forward to it, dearly. But now that it's arrived, if just feels like pulling out a 1 week old festering splinter: a kind of eye-watering relief that still holds a ghostly agony of memory.

  • DemonicRage

    Her fame may have been fleeting, but at the Republican convention when she was nominated, when she came out and sneered, "The difference between a community organizer and myself as Mayor of Wasallah is that I had some respnsibilities," she set the tone for the next four years. Ever since that moment, a certain magical Unicorn has gotten no respect whatsoever. So say whatever you want about her, she set it all into motion with her jr. high school mean girl sarcasm.

    • AKHottie

      "respnsibilities"? Yep, that's our endtimes queen! Never a word she didn't misspell or misunderstand.

  • AKHottie

    Finger licking good Cheetos AND crotch shot! When will the poster be available?

  • prommie

    She's going to play Bachman.
