Noted Historian Sarah Palin Thinks Barack Obama Is Just Like Robespierre, If She Knew Who Robespierre Was

starburstsFormer half-term GILF and current Facebook celebrity Sarah Palin thinks Barack Obama is a very bad man. What did the Kenyan Usurper do this time? He said “Voting is the best revenge.” As you can imagine, this is the biggest threat the Republic has ever known except for that one time some New Black Panthers held the door to the polling place open for an old white lady.

You know what they always say: first they get their revenge “with votes,” and the next thing you know it is an appointment with Mme. Guillotine. Why does Barack Obama want to cut the heads off all the Republicans, by voting? INPEACH!

      That's what that smell is? I thought it was hot garbage and something that died under the porch a couple weeks ago. Thanks! You saved me some serious crawlspace time.

  1. Not_So_Much

    Robespierre is that slutty see-through thing that Todd bought for her from Fredericks of Hollywood. They had an ad in the back "Let's Go Kill Some Stuff!" magazine.

  2. Terry

    Geeze, even Fox news seems to be getting tired of her. Hannity looks fairly patronizing in that screen capture.

    1. Mumbletypeg

      My thoughts exactly. Were I able to play the vid, I'd hope to see the same thing live-action. Maybe someone who's not blocked-access will share / verify his expression of skepticism.

      1. MissusBarry

        I sat through this unbearably long clip, in the name of research, for you…they really only only had the side by side when he was talking and took him off camera when she was actually talking. Probably for this very reason. His expression was basically unchanged throughout his camera time.

      You have to have at least _three years_ of jazz tap to join them. They're hardcore. You don't cross them.

  3. ttommyunger

    Well, I have to admit, I don't know who ROBESPIERRE is and couldn't spell his name on my own if you held a gun on me, but I know who Palin and Insannity are and what they are; so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

    1. sewollef

      Well, I have to admit, I don't know who ROBESPIERRE is…

      Yeh, sure you do. His full name is:

      Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre Cheney.

      Got it now?

        1. sewollef

          See…. I KNEW you'd remember!

          'Course I'm being a bit disingenuous, since Robespierre started out with the right idea [ie. executing the king and all the French aristocracy -- except himself of course].

          But he went off the rails a little towards the end…. and that's exactly like Cheney.

  4. NorthStarSpanx

    Everyone knows that living well is the best revenge. Doesn't she Fb edict that or Tweet it?

    And Sarah's 96 pound body and balding head is such evidence of that.

    1. Mittaplasia

      And hers is a custom bathrobe with a secret crack pipe pocket and the label reads, "Roguespierre" because she's special.

    1. SigDeFlyinMonky

      Revenge for calumny, character assassination and the abasement of the level of political discourse that is the recrudescent excrescence of you and your ilk.

  5. ManchuCandidate

    Despite her bitchy irrelevance, I still think that deep down inside that she still really wants to ride Barry like a pony and do things to him that would make her porno doppelganger Lisa Ann blush with shame.

  6. Loch_Nessosaur

    Is she having problems keeping her eyes open, or what. She must be coming down from that meth high.

      1. glasspusher

        Now you've got me thinking of that scene from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, where the baby just falls out while mum(Terry Jones) is doing the dishes.

        MUM: Ohh, get that, would you, Deirdre?

  7. SoBeach

    This crap has defined the Romney campaign. Take a quote out of context, distort it, and pretend like Obama said something completely different from what he said.

    Tens of millions of voters think that's perfectly reasonable.

  8. weejee

    What do these derp thinkers, these poopyheaded pundits like Hannity, Limbaugh, and Beck have in common? No higher ed parchments. Just sayin'.

    1. Schmannnity

      But, but, Hannity and Limbaugh are former sportscasters. If you can't take your political advise from a sports talk show, the country is doomed.

  9. ph7

    Obama is just complying with Wonkette comment guidelines. We don't want to send him to Japan like Jack Stueff.

  10. Lazy Media

    Hannity themes tomorrow:
    1. Voter fraud made the difference
    2. Ro-mentum was gonna get 'er dun until the weather (HAARP?) intervened
    3. The responsible thing for the House to do is to go off the fiscal cliff AND default on the national debt.
    4. Buy gold and ammo.

    1. zumpie

      6. New Black Pantherz!!!! Duh.

      7, Also, too, also: Mittens was an evil rhino librul. As were Akin, Mourdock, etc. If we had run TRUE conservatives, we'd have 100% control of everything, all the time. Because all Murika is totes wingnutville, Except those fake parts that aren't

  11. UW8316154

    Vote for Pedro.

    Edit – It just occured to me how much the current election and Napoleon Dynamite have in common: bitchy, establishment white Mormom running against a (possibly illegal) brown, who manages to mobilize the under-class to stand up against bullying, rich snobs.

    Barry => Pedro
    Mitt => Summer Wheatley

  12. zumpie

    Granny Palin also gave her "surprise" endorsement of Mittens, yesterday—as did Melissa Joan Hart. Add in Stacey Dash's earlier vote and I see Mittens has the coveted has been, D-Lister, attractive after the make up ladies spend 3 hours on them demo totes locked up!

    Oh, bonu boints: I'm sure Rick(y) Schroeder will vote R&R, also, too!

    1. Gorillionaire

      Melissa Joan Hart is married to one of them "Christian Rock" fellas that never sells any records but seems to have a career anyway.

  13. Come here a minute

    Sarah may not know who Robespierre is, but she's pretty sure it has something to do with "Robespierre to pay Paul."

  14. Goonemeritus

    I read my ballot carefully I didn’t notice Sarah’s name anywhere on it. It occurs to me she might have cynically decided to cash in rather than actually work for her beliefs.

  15. Joshua Norton

    You all realize that it doesn't end here and that if Rmoney loses today the corporate media will immediately go into horse race mode tomorrow driving us all nuts over who the next wingnut candidate for president will be don't you? Well DON'T YOU!!?

  16. prommie

    Robespierre was a duly elected member of the legislature, appointed pursuant to a Bill passed by the legislature to head a special committee to exercise the power of the executive during the crisis. All very regular and proper in procedure and legality. People have no fucking clue what the French Revolution was.

  17. SexySmurf

    What did the Kenyan Usurper do this time? He said “Voting is the best revenge.”

    "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to have your opponent receive one more vote than he would have if you hadn't killed my father."

  18. gullywompr

    Ya know what Sarah? I don't even care about your tits anymore, just GTFO. Stay in Alaska, where the revenge is always cold.

  19. BarackMyWorld

    Revenge for what?

    Revenge for how you guys have treated the president for the last 4 years, you dumb ass.

  20. Mittaplasia

    OT, but Mr. McFatty keeps driving nails into the coffin of Mitten's ill-fated campaign, as noted by a prominent Yahoo political analyst:

    Chrietie is a dam fool and stabed Romany in the back he may have cost Romany the predentcy

    1. T3rbo

      Spellin be hawrd. Seriously, I had no idea that there was a gypsy problem in New Jersey. Gowd bleesh Guvner Chrietie.

    2. fuflans

      true fact: one of the many times i woke up last night (in a cold sweat worrying about the election), i mumbled to mr. fuflans 'christie's going to take the fall if bamz wins'.

      course, that may well be christie's path to the 2016 nomination.

  21. BTWBFDIMHO

    First time she mentions Robespierre without some turkeys being guillotined in the background. Heireux Action de Grâces, y'all!

    1. T3rbo

      Revenge? We should buy that haggard twunt a card or flowers every election day. God bless her for stopping McCain's campaign cold and for putting Hillary into Obammy's cabinet

  22. GregComlish

    Knowing that your opponent's husband is still banging that Wasilla hooker is the second best revenge.

  23. T3rbo

    Wasn't Robespierre that black ghostbuster, who always had kind of a bad attitude and would crack wise at inappropriate times? Fuck that guy.

        1. natoslug

          I had Pinball Wizard stuck in my head most of yesterday, so all I could think was deaf dumb and blind kid. Well, that, and dumb is one of the first non-expletives that comes to mind when I hear of any Palin other than Michael.

  24. larrykat

    How many times can even the ignorant toothless morons that watch Hannity listen to this harridan say the same shit over and over?

  25. Trinket

    Okay, who the hell fed her that name? The same person who told her how to say "I'm a dinner jacket"? Because if that woman knows diddly about the French Revolution, I'll eat my hat.

  26. DahBoner

    Tommorow's headline at Fox News:

    ROMNEY DEFEATED: "IT'S REVENGE OF THE MOTHERFUCKERS, MOTHERFUCKERS"

  27. Swampay

    That reminds me, can someone remind me of what Romney's response was that time he suggested his supporters refrain from booing Obama? Oh, right. I guess that never happened.

  28. malsperanza

    Mind you, not every Fox pundit keeps up with her reading of the minor Renaissance poets, but given Palin's habit of running up massive bills in shopping sprees and charging them to the GOP, I would have expected her to recognize the old adage, "Living well is the best revenge" ~George Herbert (1593-1633). Or failing that, at least that REM song.

    Who doesn't love REM?
