GRIFTER´S DOWNFALL  4:00 pm October 20, 2011

Sarah Palin Reduced To Hosting Dinners At Disneyworld

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

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]

a trade-show chickenhead dinner? sounds about right.

Indiepalin October 20, 2011 at 4:03 pm

You know who else doesn't have a leg to stand on?

memzilla October 20, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Didn't Galumphing Gams open for Hank Williams Jr. last year?

Not_So_Much October 20, 2011 at 6:49 pm

This specific pair of Galumphing Gams has opened for lots of guys. I have no proof that Bocephus was not among them.

LowProfileinGA October 20, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Please permit me to correct a small error in spelling:
Bucephalus not Bocephus.

You're welcome.

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Damn, you're just as sick and twisted as me. You SURE we're not related?

BaldarTFlagass October 20, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Well, no one's ever accused me of fathering their illegitimate child, but after 30+ year of spraying my seed around the planet, I suppose there could be a couple-three out there. You're not half-Filipino, are you? With a heavy beard and an unnatural thirst for booze?

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:30 pm

No, not half-Pinoy, but definitely possessed of an unnatural thirst for booze, which is ludicrous given that no one in my family all the way back seventeen generations ever touched the stuff. I'll attribute it to mischance, then.

Well, OK, I have the one.

widestanceshakedown October 20, 2011 at 4:38 pm

I hope that's snark, PO'D. . .how's it these days?

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:57 pm

Only somewhat, widestance. The knee's titanium. I'm resisting having the Other Knee replaced, since the nerves never quite grow back right, making your reflexes sort of iffy. This means you fall on your ass more often, something I finally outgrew after a drunken yoof only to find my old age becoming equally undignified, feh.

And how's by you, guero?

PristinePantalones October 24, 2011 at 12:35 pm

ZOMG! I'm so sorry to hear that! He's all better, I hope? Or recovering in your loving arms? What a fucking life. Chicken soup with lots of ginger and hot ginger tea with honey. Nothing like ginger for getting rid of congestion, said my grandmother, and she finally popped her clogs at age 96, so I figure she knew what she was talking about.

There's still time to breed enough alligators to chew "America's Wang" off from the mainland, and let the whole thing slide towards Bermuda.

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:18 pm

That's the kind of comment that makes me cross my legs pre-emptively.

You're making me hot with talk like that.

justkillmenow October 20, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Can they please stop calling her Governor Palin? She quit. Remember?

finallyhappy October 20, 2011 at 9:18 pm

Even when they don't quit- I haven't seen "governor" used as the title for any number of former governors who completed their terms.

comrad_darkness October 20, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Well, you sometimes see "Former Governor Joe Blow". But with Sarah, my suspicion is her clueless minions think she still is governor.

ManchuCandidate October 20, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Worst puppet show ever.

Tick, tick, tick, tick…………………………..

Serolf_Divad October 20, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Is this like when Spinal Tap played their Jazz improvization set at Six Flags?

ManchuCandidate October 20, 2011 at 4:09 pm

To be fair, the puppet show was quite entertaining.

Chichikovovich October 20, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Unquestionably deserved top billing.

baconzgood October 20, 2011 at 4:14 pm

They should've got the bigger dressing room.

El Pinche October 20, 2011 at 4:09 pm

This is good news for vacationing 53%ers. They have a chance to ride Dumbo.

Chichikovovich October 20, 2011 at 4:14 pm

The ride is called "The Glenn Rice Experience".

El Pinche October 20, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Too bad Erick Erickson and most conservatards will fail the dick length check at the entrance.

Rotundo_ October 20, 2011 at 6:01 pm

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)

elviouslyqueer October 20, 2011 at 4:15 pm

That's what Todd said.

Chillwaver October 20, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Ride Dumbo? I thought that was Bristol's job.

GOPCrusher October 20, 2011 at 5:39 pm

I thought that was Levi's job?

All of them, Katie! And a mechanical bull, also, too.

smashedinhat October 20, 2011 at 4:09 pm

About time for her to start a music career. That should put an end to this foolishness.

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:20 pm

The thought of her and Herb performing duets is enough to make me ram a pair of chopsticks through my ears.

FlownOver October 20, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Her voice would blend well with some of Yoko's early works.

yrbmegr October 20, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Maybe we'll see her on next season's "Ripping Off The Stars".

GOPCrusher October 20, 2011 at 5:40 pm

Two words. Playboy pictorial.

It's the only logical next step for her career.

smashedinhat October 20, 2011 at 6:46 pm

And there is only one way Bristol could deal with that!

SayItWithWookies October 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm

“Having a Republican leader of Governor Palin’s stature and importance is yet again proof that Florida is meandering through history without purpose or direction, listening to the incoherent advice of simpleminded hacks and grabbing at anything shiny by the side of the road in a vain attempt to extract meaning from it."

Negropolis October 20, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Oooo, squirrel!

SorosBot October 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm

The other news is that odious Rick Scott is so unpopular he can't get anyone with actual stature and importance to support him, the best he can do is the half-term has-been.

RavenRant October 20, 2011 at 4:37 pm

I also like 'half-term halfwit'.

Just so long as it's not Tomorrowland.

What's the difference between a Hockey Mom and Goofy's wife? There is no difference, they are both fucking Goofy.

No, it goes like this:

Why did Mickey divorce Minnie?

How did Dairy Queen get pregnant?
Burger King forgot to wrap his whopper.

(sorry, unrelated but somehow it just fit).

What's the difference between a Hockey Mom and Pluto? Both were once classified as being much more important than they are.

Barb October 20, 2011 at 4:27 pm

"Sarah Palin Reduced To Hosting Dinners At Disneyworld" Her next move? Serving dinners at Disneyworld.

GOPCrusher October 20, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Begging for food outside of Disneyworld.

Negropolis October 20, 2011 at 11:47 pm

Having to work at Disneyland.

I was thinkin Hooters.

Nostrildamus October 20, 2011 at 11:30 pm

What's the difference between a Hockey Mom and Pluto?

1. A dog will eventually stop whining.

2. Well they're both dense and frigid, but unfortunately Pluto's farther away.

3. The planet has a higher IQ.

chascates October 20, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Plus Bristol can whore her book at the nearby Walmart.

nounverb911 October 20, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Is that what Bristol's calling her ladybits now?

YasserArraFeck October 20, 2011 at 4:41 pm

The difference is, I like to bury myself in a good book sometimes. Bristle's…."book"….not so much (although it's probably the only "book" Levi ever buried his head in)

tessiee October 20, 2011 at 9:16 pm

Walmart has admitted fewer people.

hagajim October 20, 2011 at 5:13 pm

And Sarah can bang a black man in the land of enchantment.

yrbmegr October 20, 2011 at 5:26 pm

Let's send a few boxes of her book to the troops in Afghanistan. I hear they appreciate (the BTU content of) that kind of reading material over there.

OneYieldRegular October 20, 2011 at 4:11 pm

How will they tell her apart from any of the other cartoon characters?

DashboardBuddha October 20, 2011 at 4:14 pm

No worries…there are a few wicked witches.

snackypants October 20, 2011 at 7:56 pm

The others will be wearing less makeup.

tessiee October 20, 2011 at 9:18 pm

The cartoon characters are *intentionally* silly, childish, and ridiculous?

tessiee October 20, 2011 at 9:18 pm

Goofy says "a-hyuk!" less?

BaldarTFlagass October 20, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Watch out, Disney furries. That bitch is fucking Goofy.

DashboardBuddha October 20, 2011 at 4:12 pm

I won't be happy until the headline reads, "Palin hired has new greeter at Wasilla WalMart".

Shortly to be followed by, "Former AK Governor arrested at area WalMart for solicitation"

LesBontemps October 20, 2011 at 5:14 pm

More likely shoplifting.

DashboardBuddha October 20, 2011 at 5:47 pm

Could be…could be. Sarah still reminds me of the tired old pros who walked up an down in front of my employer's shop on Nebraska Ave in Tampa.

It's what you make when life hands you lemons.

Spurning Beer October 22, 2011 at 2:12 pm

If life hands you melons, you are probably dyslexic.

Pristine_ODummy October 22, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Not very good for curry, also. Unless they're kugua (bitter melon).

prommie October 20, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Next stop, she'll do a "round-the- world" for you for $250. You are gonna want to catch her in the early part of this phase of her career, though. For a grand, you could probably get a three-way with her and Bristol.

memzilla October 20, 2011 at 4:16 pm

She raised her price??!

HarryButtle October 20, 2011 at 4:19 pm

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.

GOPCrusher October 20, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Heyyy. I see what you did there.

memzilla October 20, 2011 at 4:13 pm

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

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:36 pm

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

GOPCrusher October 20, 2011 at 5:48 pm

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.

tessiee October 20, 2011 at 9:21 pm

For the love of God, don't tell this story to Citibank!

comrad_darkness October 20, 2011 at 10:49 pm

That story scared the crap out of me. I think I'll use it this Holloween when it's my turn to share something seasonally appropriate. Hope you don't mind.

SexySmurf October 20, 2011 at 4:14 pm

They needed someone who would make Rick Scott look competent and likable in comparison. They went with the obvious choice.

Nostrildamus October 20, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Right. Manson is detained and Attila is dead.

Vegas is giving even odds whether she even shows up.

WriteyWriterton October 20, 2011 at 5:23 pm

She certainly won't stay longer than halfway through the dinner. That's her MO.

Negropolis October 20, 2011 at 11:55 pm

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.

To grift or not to grift. That is the question.

Chichikovovich October 20, 2011 at 4:16 pm

First General Jackson, now this. Haven't Floridans suffered enough?

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Also every single skank responsible for the hanging chads.

prommie October 20, 2011 at 4:48 pm

There was something like 50,000 Nader votes, Gore would have won it pulling away.

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 5:12 pm

And then there was the Backstabbing of the Lieberman. Eight years as all our pensions, investments, savings, and homes swirled around the terlet, and a codpiece-sporting dickbrain shit all over what was left.

Mooselini has her eye on the booth next to Pete Rose on the Memorabilia Circuit.

prommie October 20, 2011 at 4:34 pm

I once saw Pete sitting all by himself in the memorabilia store in the Forum Shops in Vegas, all by himself. I mean, just all completely all by himself, ignored by one and all, even the store employees. I sure do hope thats how she ends up.

Not Cheap Trick, they aren't that bad off yet, still have That 70's Show money. Maybe Foghat.

They're still around? *wiki* My god, they are. And touring as described! http://www.foghat.net/tour.htm
My first concert in the USA was Foghat, with Black Oak Arkansas, plus Ruby Starr and Grey Ghost (BOA knock-off). You'd think Slow Ride would give them enough royalties to retire…

"G-Force Fights"

Snort, snort!

What is he? 12?

Blueb4sunrise October 20, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Sarah says 9.

Bonzos_Bed_Time October 20, 2011 at 5:43 pm

And Herman says 9-9-9

Rotundo_ October 20, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Devolving her way down to the rotary chicken dinner circuit and finally at the end, puppet shows at the local church or nursing home. The career plummet is getting steeper, before that last gentle glide into complete obscurity. Bon Voyage Snowbilly! Happy Landings!

lulzmonger October 20, 2011 at 4:36 pm

There's even a concession!

Your photo with Sarah Palin = $100

Your photo WITHOUT Sarah Palin = $250

johnnyzhivago October 20, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Chicken night in Turkey.

DaRooster October 20, 2011 at 4:38 pm

They have Lenny Curry… but where's Moe… and Shemp? Forget about that Curly Joe guy though… he was weird.

Guppy06 October 20, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Rick, Sarah…

Walt Disney World and The Villages are not the same thing. I realize that it can be hard to tell the difference sometimes.

ttommyunger October 20, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Rick Scott and Sarah Palin. The former has too much money to ever land in jail in spite of his criminality, the former is also home free: seems she can't even get arrested nowadays. Regardless, great pairing.

Goodnight_Loon October 20, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Wasn't one of the most important elections in our nation's history in 2008?

Poindexter718 October 20, 2011 at 4:43 pm

I never noticed the Bespectacled Colostomy Bag is holding a newspaper in that poolside foto. You don't suppose….?
Nah. Prolly just for the chicken bones.

BarackMyWorld October 20, 2011 at 4:44 pm

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

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

Chet Kincaid October 20, 2011 at 4:48 pm

“ '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.

DaRooster October 20, 2011 at 4:51 pm

LEMMY is gonna be there?!?!

Oh… Lenny… nevermind…

OneDollarJuana October 20, 2011 at 4:52 pm

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

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 5:02 pm

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

But I was always weird.

prommie October 20, 2011 at 4:53 pm

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 October 20, 2011 at 4:58 pm

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

Pristine_ODummy October 20, 2011 at 5:03 pm

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

DahBoner October 20, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Is Disney having a Quitter Night?

Slim_Pickins October 20, 2011 at 4:55 pm

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

iburl October 20, 2011 at 4:57 pm

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

BornInATrailer October 20, 2011 at 5:01 pm

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

Ducksworthy October 20, 2011 at 6:29 pm

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

hagajim October 20, 2011 at 5:10 pm

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

DerrickWildcat October 20, 2011 at 5:13 pm

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

donner_froh October 20, 2011 at 5:35 pm

RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry

Make that ROTFL Chairman Lenny and it might make sense.

WriteyWriterton October 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

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

fuflans October 20, 2011 at 5:49 pm

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

JoshuaNorton October 20, 2011 at 5:51 pm

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 October 20, 2011 at 6:36 pm

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

berkeleyfarm October 21, 2011 at 1:36 am

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!

Pristine_ODummy October 22, 2011 at 2:27 pm

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.

user-of-owls October 20, 2011 at 6:43 pm

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

Ducksworthy October 20, 2011 at 6:46 pm

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

Jukesgrrl October 20, 2011 at 7:18 pm

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

comrad_darkness October 20, 2011 at 10:46 pm

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 October 20, 2011 at 11:29 pm

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 October 21, 2011 at 4:01 am

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

AKHottie October 21, 2011 at 3:57 am

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

prommie October 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

She's going to play Bachman.

Spurning Beer October 22, 2011 at 2:02 pm

The Bucephalus trematode worm's
Parasitic, my textbook confirms.
It lives as a pest in
A fish's intestine,
Surrounded, I'm guessing, by germs.
