Palin Might Run For President Because Of Raging Non-Limbaugh Misogynists

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sarah Palin went on — or should we say, was transmitted through someone’s phone-toy in the direction of — CNN during Tuesday’s Super Snoozeday parade, and proclaimed that who knows whether she’ll run for president today, tomorrow, or after the Mayan apocalypse, but anything is possible because Americans can do anything they put their minds to, emphasis on “minds” and excluding jobs. Later on, while Romney was disappointing America, CNN spent a good portion of the long process of cell degeneration we call life talking about Palin some more, with what little comprehensible English was made available by her mouth yesterday. Conclusion: Sarah Palin is an alive person. Plus, hates misogynists as long as they are liberal.

Seeing as Election 2012 is like a very long airplane ride from which there is no escape and very poor in-flight entertainment or food, we may as well delve into this one-inch-deep story, as we delve into movies like “What’s Your Number?” or “The Help” when they are the only ones Delta is allowing us to see tinily through our dehydrated Brut goggles.

Disregarding the fact that if nobody asked Sarah Palin if she’ll run for president, she probably never would (trees falling in forests and all that), Palin Tuesday responded to CNN’s deeply unoriginal question by saying:

As I say, anything is possible. And I don’t close any doors that perhaps would be open out there. So, no, I wouldn’t close that door. And my plan is to be at that convention.

Here’s a video, with Sarah looking very mineral powdery and happy-angry.

The subplot of this family fun is that Sarah Palin was not excited about Barack Obama pandering to tears with his “I made a phone call to Sandra Fluke” comment. Mr. Man said he felt for Fluke re: Limbaugh because he has daughters or something. So Palin released a statement telling Obama to return the money that Bill Maher (a “rabid misogynist,” according to Palin, because he once called her a “c—,” which, yes, that was too bad) donated to one of Obama’s super PACs to the tune of one million dollars. Anyway, linking to FOX NOOSE for this only to show everybody that the Fox website has been redesigned to look like the Constitution.

Palin closed out the iPhone clip with these words, directed at CNN, which sum up everything nicely:

I APPRECIATE U. [Houston Chronicle/Fox News]

A Note From the Editrix: Comments on this post have been closed thanks to the one asshole who’s decided to disregard our well-known policy against slurs on Palin’s youngest child. The rest of you shouting ‘cunt’ over and over again like a naughty kid who just learned the word, eh, that’s fine though less clever than you may think.

      Sarah, you're not REALLY here for the hunting, are you?

    • PhilippePetain

      Oh my god, can you imagine the spectacle if the convention came up and she was actually pushing for the nomination? Jesus, I mean, it really would be a blowout. I mean it could end their party… why isn't someone on the left trying to amp her ego up to do this??

      • GOPCrusher

        LOL! No assistance is necessary, I think.

      You don't think Mitt Romney's shooting-gallery back-and-forth is funny?

    Sarah, it is misogynistic but also the truth.

  • nounverb911

    Sarah tell us again how all of your illegitimate grandchildren are just a lifestyle choice.

    • Guppy

      It was Sarah's lifestyle choice to deny all teens in Alaska proper sex ed.

      • Terry

        She also saved some money by not funding the processing of rape evidence kits.

        • Guppy

          Permanent Fund checks don't grow on trees, don't ya know! It was her job as governor to make sure they could squeeze every last drop of beer out of that money!

    • Chichikovovich

      There's just one that's illegitimate, right? I thought that Combine Harvester Track and his new wife limboed under the marriage bar just in time. But maybe I'm just falling behind on my responsibilities as an American to keep up with every Palin family event.

      • chicken_thief

        Married sometime in May, baby born Aug 7th. She looks preggers in the wedding photos or she just has a gut like a 50 yr old beer drinker, but, sadly, I don't know how to do the link thingy…..

        • Chichikovovich

          Maybe it's just semantics. I thought that if the child is born after the wedding, it is “legitimate” even if it was conceived out of wedlock. (Hence my remark about “limboed”.—

  • Barb

    Bill Maher doesn't have to pander to sponsors and he can call Palin a cunt if he wants. Rush, on the other hand, has to bend over and grab his ankles………as if he could.

    • SheriffRoscoe

      Anddddd……not to split hairs here, but Sarah Palin is a fancy elite politician (sometimes) and Sandra Fluke is a private citizen. Oh what the hell, I like Bill Maher and so I'm bending over backwards (hehe) trying to make him look good.

      • Tommy1733

        Please DON'T make me think of Limbaugh grabbing his ankles. Ruins my lunch.

        • Barb

          Sorry Tommy, I owe you a new lunch. I just read that the Fox clowns are saying that Obama brought Fluke up to create a controversy. Gosh, they took the bait then, didn't they?

          • SorosBot

            Omama just forced them to attack a young woman for defending her rights? Uh, sure.

      • An_Outhouse

        Not to continue splitting hairs but Palin IS a cunt and Sandra Fluke is NOT a prostitute. So there's that too, also.

    • Pithaughn

      The sponsors did NOT leave Bill's show because what he said was true. Everyone knows way to much about Sarah. Nobody especially el Rusho knows the coed. That is the diff Sarah. (Barb, I am pretty sure someone from Sarah's tribe/PAC/Possed monitors your devilishly clever comments)

    • UnholyMoses

      There's also the small fact that Maher only said it once, not repeatedly over the course of several days, nor did he ask Palin to make a sex tape so he could fap to it.

      Totally the same, however, in Greater Wingnuttia.

    • orygoon

      I have laughed at Bill Maher a few times but I have never given a flying fuck about anything he said. I suspect that his importance to Liberal Though being compared to that of Limbaugh to Redneckery Thoughtlike Processes is exaggerated. But I don't really know.

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      Isn't it a factual matter the Ms Fluke is not a prostitute? And — without another parade of men through Darrel Issa's playground — she's not a slut either. With Palin, the truth is more elusive.

      (But isn't "the c-word" more-or-less "the n-word" for women?)

  • memzilla

    Wow! Both Mooselini's and Rmoney's politics originated with Groucho way back in 1927! Who's the Marxist now?

    • Guppy

      After the stint in the hotel business, he went on to work in the Florida Legislature.

    Sarah is an auto misogynist, which I think means she hates female cars.

            Oh, I know. I think the poor thing is actually legitimately insane. I've had some schizophrenic friends, and they can sound like this when off their meds and/or abusing substances. They see patterns in words, think the CIA is after them, etc.Besides, perhaps you should be flattered:”The oldest, first, highest, best, and most popular rated comments are all propaganda. They are conducting Psy-ops (psychological operations) for domestic spying.”Alas, my pee is not high enough for me to qualify as a “government poster”.

      How awesome would it be, to see election workers canvassing votes and reporting that over one million people voted for "That cunt"?

      • chicken_thief

        And then she proudly stood up to accept the accolades.

        • GOPCrusher

          I imagine that she would take it all the way to the Supreme Court to argue that anyone that wrote in "That cunt" actually was voting for her.

    If you're scoring at home:
    David Letterman calls Palin's daughter a slut because, well… she is one. = BAD
    Rush Limbaugh calls a law student a slut because, well no reason = FINE*

    * I won't watch that video, so I'm assuming that's what she says.

    • Nothingisamiss

      Rush Limbaugh was only exercising his first amendment rights. Which is not the point…..

      • Jus_Wonderin

        Did one of those fantasticly talented Sherman brothers right this song? That other one worked out well for Mary Poppins.

  • Callyson

    From FAUX News:
    “For the sake of everyone’s daughter, why doesn’t his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?”
    …as opposed to:
    Sarah Palin said Tuesday the reaction in media and political circles that prompted Rush Limbaugh to apologize for calling a law student a “slut” was “the definition of hypocrisy.”
    “I think the definition of hypocrisy is for Rush Limbaugh to have been called out, forced to apologize and retract what it is that he said in exercising his First Amendment rights and never is that the same applied to the leftist radicals who say such horrible things about the handicapped, about women, about the defenseless,” Palin told CNN in an interview from Wasilla, Alaska.
    What was that about the definition of hypocrisy?
    (By the way, if Saint Sarah cared to read she would find that there are several liberals who *have* called out Bill Maher on his woman issues, whereas I'd like to find just one conservative who has done the same with Rushbo…)

    • Sassomatic

      Why the hell do these Republican ditto heads believe that the First Amendment means that you can say whatever you want and be immune to criticism, so long as you are a Republican?

      • freakishlywrong

        I'll take "because we have a shitty media and Republicans never pay a price for their awfulness" for 10,000, Alex.

    • Generation[redacted]

      To be fair, every conservative facing reelection with women in their district kind of sort of has said yeah maybe it wasn't the best choice of words.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Yep. If only Rush had calle her a "strumpet" or "harlot", none of this would have happened.

    • Chichikovovich

      I think the "handicapped" bit refers to Rahm, (not, of course, to Rush, or to the right wing pretend comedian who called Democrats "retards" in an opening act for Sarah!) It might refer to Wonkette too, though as I recall someone lost one of those big Soros-bucks poster's jobs over that. And of course, many fine young posts have lost their lives as collateral damage, their snark writ on water.

    • UnholyMoses

      "the leftist radicals who say such horrible things about the handicapped, about women, about the defenseless,"

      Yeah, I totally remember when Rachael Maddow made fun of a guy with Parkinson's for daring to disagree with her politically. Then there was that time when Lawrence O'Donnell called anyone without health care "leeches" and "parasites." And that time Obama talked about how he wasn't going to give white people government money.

      Oh, wait …

    • Lynne

      Well, George Will did it, and he does surprise me like that at times (but not often). Nobody else on the Right had the guts to call Rush out. George is not running for office though, so there's not much they can do to him.

      By the way, I find Bill Maher offensive too. I may agree with his viewpoint, and he may be funny, but he's still gross far too often. I wish I could stand watching his show.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Sarah Palin, FOX News' pomeranian of the moment, won't rule out running for president in exactly the same way that I won't rule out becoming a pirate. It's possible and I think about it a lot, but boy — those ships are awfully expensive, and being in charge of a boat full of other pirates sounds kinda complicated, and getting caught by the King and hanged wouldn't be fun. But hey — treasure, eyepatches and parrots!

      I hope the Tampa PD has orders to beat the shit out of her if she tries to enter the convention. We'll see if she thinks a little bit more of Dan Rather after that.

  • FakaktaSouth

    Okay. Deep breath. Calling Sandra Fluke a slut based on her congressional testimony is a lie based on a fat fuck's altered state of consciousness (oxy really IS a hell of a drug) and his self loathing, obsession with sex and simultaneous disgust with intelligent, reasoning people, much less smart women. Calling Sarah Palin a cunt because she is an evil-stupid step way back to a level of skipped evolution I still find baffling is just taking a short cut. What was that joke abt putting the run (sarah) run bumper sticker on the front of a car?

    • MadBrahms

      What Limbaugh did was very specifically state that Flook actually did certain things – be sexually promiscuous, and attribute to her a desire she did not have (to make the government pay for her birth control).

      In contrast, Maher's statement – though I do find it misogynistic in its own right – was an abstract expression of irritation and exasperation. This is quite different from saying "she's a slut, because she has sex, all the time, with many, many men".

      • FakaktaSouth

        Exactly. Had Bill Maher come out and said "Sarah Palin is a smart and thoughtful woman, with many good, reasoned ideas that can do much to further the political discourse of our nation's people" THEN we would have lies of a competing fashion with how Rush falsely categorized Ms. Fluke. Instead he said a nasty swear to tell the truth.

    • Redhead

      If I had a nickel for every time someone called Palin a cunt, I'd be a bigger (and richer) grifter than she is.

  • Baconzgood

    CUNT!

    Is that sufficiently PC, or would it be more inclusive to also say that you're a prick?

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    While you still can, you must check out http://www.nytimes.com/

    • MadBrahms

      And you also did something Palin can't: you gave an American work.

  • SorosBot

    Um, shouldn't someone decide whether or not to run for president before people start voting?

    • Generation[redacted]

      That's what "The Establishment" wants you to think!

    • BigDumbRedDog

      Maybe she thinks she can just steal the election like W.

      • SorosBot

        Well she doesn't want to go through the trouble of actually running for president; that's too much like work.

  • Oblios_Cap

    A sphincter says "what".

  • mavenmaven

    That Maher thing has become the big Fox News Talking Point. I suspect we'll be hearing about it over and over again.

    • SorosBot

      Which is particularly stupid, since they are trying to play the "liberals are sexist too!" card – but Maher is not a liberal. He's a libertarian jackass, you morans.

    • Chichikovovich

      Also I've seen a lot of commenters (plus that painfully unfunny "Day by Day" cartoon, which is always a reliable guide to the bullshit talking point du jour) mention that Ed Schultz once called Laura Ingraham a "slut" on his MSNBC show. Left out is the fact that Schultz gave an apparently sincere apology, that he was suspended for a week anyway, and that he used the word just once, rather than repeatedly, and venomously over the course of several spittle-flecked days worth of three-hour programs, and that all Schultz had to apologize for is the actual word used, while the words Limbaugh used were the least of his offences against simple decency – though he crafted his apologies with PR help to plant the impression that it was just about the words.

      Not to mention that Limbaugh threw these accusations while presenting a totally fabricated account of what her testimony consisted in, and that he did not just describe his primary victim as a slut and a prostitute, but in fact said that every woman who expects their insurance to pay for birth control is one. And that his successive "apologies" repeated the complete fabrication of her testimony, while blaming "the left" for the sewage he spewed.

      Really, there's an elementary response, which has clearly already occurred to the scores of advertisers who are running away: Just listen to the hours upon hours of Limbaugh ranting. Listen to the 5 seconds of Schultz or Maher. And tell me if they are even remotely comparable.

    • MadBrahms

      Of course. You can both pretend that it's ok and condemn someone else for doing it at the same time! Stories like this are perfect little nuggets of compressed cognitive dissonance.

    Did anyone see Sarah's email that said that her child "has a face that only a mother could love"

    • Chichikovovich

      As the board logician I must point out that "Only a mother could love that face" does not imply "A mother does love that face".

      Even AFTER the chin job?

    The ad on my screen says "Say No to Arctic Drilling". After reading about $arah, I have to agree.

      TOO LATE!

  • Chichikovovich

    telling Obama to return the money that Bill Maher … donated to one of Obama’s super PACs to the tune of one million dollars.

    But Sarah – haven't you heard? Those super-PAC's are completely independent of the candidiates. No coordination allowed. So Obama – respecter of the law that he is – simply has to let them do their 100% independent thing.

    [Certainly that's what I remember Bush saying when he kept officially repeating "I respect Kerry's service" while the Swift Boaters were spreading millions of dollars worth of weapons-grade slime.]

    Thats some nasty high-pitched queefing coming from that cunt. Amazing talent. She could go on after the chick with the ping-pong balls.

    • FakaktaSouth

      The hate I feel for her could consume, digest and daintily blow out my butt the hate I feel for Rush. I guess I'm a sexist too. Something abt this woman rolling her eyes and shrilly acting like she has common sense on her side about hypocrisy makes me shakey, stammery and stabby. Where the hell is Rush's maid? I need pills.

      • prommie

    I thought is was an email from Piper saying her mother has a face not even a child could love.

      I thought it was an email from Todd saying Sarah has a face only a case of wine coolers could love.

    $he reminds of the girlfriend that wants to break up with you but won't go away.

    The Talking Point Du Joir is that Sarah Palin is a prime example of what a true feminist is, and if she decides to run, Obama can kiss the womans vote goodbye.
    Discuss amongst yourselves.

    • Chichikovovich

      To that I can only reply: my God, they're on to us! I sure hope they don't read this post and clue in to how terrified we lefties are by the prospect of Sarah! winning 95% of the women's vote and cruising to victory. Because if they did read this post and learn how terrified we all are of Palin Power, they'd surely nominate her at one of those "brokered conventions" we hear so much about. And I hope that doesn't happen.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Worst. NMA.tv. segment. EVER.

  • BigDumbRedDog

    I must be a misogynist too because I think Sarah is a total cunt. Also, I just misspelled misogynist too the point that autocorrect just said wtf? So I'm an ignorant misogynistic misspeller.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Palin's ability to make everything about her is still something I find astonishing.

    Still, I have to explain the difference between Sandra Fluke getting called names and Sarah Palin getting called names…

    Rush didn't just call her a "slut" and a "prostitute," he lied about her testimony and motives for three days straight. Sandra Fluke, unlike Palin or Laura Ingraham (who was called a "slut" by Ed Schultz, and he was punished for it more severely than Limbaugh has been), isn't a public figure with her own platform to respond to Limbaugh. Limbaugh is a man with a 20-million (or so) person following and 15-hours a week of internationally available airtime, who was picking on someone considerably less famous and less powerful than him…for three days.

    Now, as far as Obama returning the money…because of these things called "campaign laws," Obama isn't supposed to control his SuperPAC, or coordinate with them at all. They are an independent group working on his behalf (though I'll concede the chances of this actually being the case aren't particularly likely).

    What the hell, Sarah, give it a try. A few weeks of non sequiturs from from a hermetically sealed chamber followed by two years (give or take) in the White House – surely you can handle that. After that it's just ribbon cutting at your library and picking a site on the Mall for your memorial.

  • anniegetyerfun

    Well, I'm sure this will be unpopular, but I'm going to go on record as not being cool with anyone being called a "cunt" or a "slut". Anyone. I don't care if they actually are these things – it IS misogynist and it's not cool*.

    *This statement brought to you by a queer feminazi (likes all genitals equally).

    • BarackMyWorld

      I agree that it isn't OKAY to call Sarah Palin misogynistic names, but her claims that the two things are equivalent is ridiculous.

      • anniegetyerfun

        You mean, what Maher said and what Limbaugh said? If I take away that fact that I hate Palin with all my heart, I'd say that they are roughly the same. The fact that Sarah is more well-known (and a horrible person) doesn't mean that it's automatically OK to call her a cunt. Now, Limbaugh's behavior was arguably more ridiculous, in that he continued to defend himself until he started to lose sponsors.

        • BarackMyWorld

          "The fact that Sarah is more well-known (and a horrible person) doesn't mean that it's automatically OK to call her a cunt."

          That's NOT what I am saying.

          • anniegetyerfun

            OK, well, go ahead and be more specific. What makes calling Sarah Palin a "cunt" different than calling Fluke a "slut"?

          • BarackMyWorld

            Both calling someone a "cunt" or a "slut" is bad, but you're caught up on one word.

            Putting aside the fact that there is an accepted difference between how public figures and private citizens are treated, Limbaugh didn't just say "slut." He said other things. LOTS of other things. He asked her who bought her condoms in junior. He said she probably had guys lined up around the block. He said she was having so much sex he was surprised she could still walk. He said she was having sex at sex-addict frequency, all the time, whenever she wants it, and called her an "amoral, baseless, no purpose to her life, woman."

          • anniegetyerfun

            Huh. I hadn't even listened to the whole thing – all I caught was the slut line, and the line about having so much sex that she couldn't afford birth control, which means, of course, that Rush has never had sex with a woman and therefor has no idea how it works.

          • MadBrahms

            Which begs that question: what does he do with all that viagra?

          • HistoriCat

    • Chichikovovich

      I'm with you on that.

      [Except for the queer part. And some of the genitals I like, I like just as good friends.]

      • anniegetyerfun

        So, some of your best friends are genitals? Do you let them use the bathroom in your house?

    • MadBrahms

      That they're so pervasive doesn't make them ok; I've had to check myself many times after letting "slut" slip out, and I think some words are to be actively on guard against using.

      But I do think we need to avoid getting too tangled up in the broader meaning of the word here so we don't play too far into FOX's hand. The word "slut" is really not the objectionable part of what Limbaugh said. Had he left "slut" and "prostitute" out entirely he would still be guilty of ridiculous violence against Flook.

    • DCBloom

      If I call Rush a dick, no one would call me sexist. Calling someone a name based on genitalia like dick, cunt, etc., is juvenile, but it's just another "bad word".

      Calling someone a slut or a prostitute is accusing them of something.
      Totally different thing.

  • James Michael Curley

    I thought he was the Bayonne Bleeder. Weren't you the Mayor?

    • James Michael Curley

      Bayonne Bleeder was before he got arrested for selling faked autographed pictures of him and Ali and a few other similar scams. He actually broke down in court during sentencing about ten years ago. Nonetheless he is still alive but probably over 80. He wasn’t that bad. He had a left hook like getting hit with a cement block.As a side note, LaMotta admitted throwing a fight and Wepner was convicted of fraud. All the more to remind one of She Who Grifts.

      • prommie

    I wonder if she's broken the news to her oldest son that he's going to have to reenlist with the Army "for show" again if she does decide to run. Nah, then they would show drippy footage of his kissing his little baby goodbye and Sarah has kept mum about the baby and hasn't acknowledged that she was born.

  • ph7

    I dunno, "cunt" is a term of endearment in my house. "Slut" still seems a bit over the top, though.

    And in british pubs, "cunt" is a multipurpose epithet of the mildest form.

  • owhatever

    The elite media (to use the Newt phrase) and the elites in the Republican Party (Newt, again) and the Wall Street elites (Newt)…aw, dang, I forgot what I wanted to snark.

    Oh yeah. They say the idea of a brokered Republican convention ending up with Palin is a crazy idea, as if the whole flippin' GOP is not batshhit crazy already. She would step the mike, say "Lipstick," and the floor would be instantly littered with ole Romney and Santorum signs as delegates get on their chairs and sing Dixie.

    From "the Colbert Report" the other night: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-v
