Sarah Palin, Dumb As A Post


To mark the Fifth of July, we present a tribute to America's Sweetheart, our almost-Vice President, Sarah Palin!

This is from a satirical site, but sometimes it's hard to separate satire from Conservatism...

"Sarah Palin Tweets 'Happy Birthday George Washington' on July 4th."

"Sarah Palin attracted ridicule on Twitter today for tweeting a happy birthday message to George Washington.

"The former Vice-Presidential candidate was apparently confused by the meaning of today’s July 4th holiday, which celebrates America’s independence from Great Britain.

"In a tweet posted this morning she wrote: 'It’s #July4th. Happy birthday to George Washington, a great American patriot and conservative.'"

Here's another one...is it satire or is it real?

Palin Quote

Of course, there's a reason we should be concerned with twits like Palin...



But to on with our story, is this satire too?

Sarah Palin Says Independence Day Is For Remembering When Jesus Led The Revolution (IMAGE)

"The post was quickly removed by her admin team but we were able to get a screenshot of it shortly after it was posted. We asked some of her fans to comment and this is what they had to say:

"I’m glad we have a politician who is willing to tell the truth about how history happened. Too often our politicians are removing Jesus from our history books." -Muriel L

"As much as I love Palin she’s wrong about this one. She’s thinking of the Civil War when Jesus came down to help Abraham Lincoln and Red Bull defeat General Custer." -Adam H

"Is what she said anything worse than what the Kenyan usurper has said? The demon in the White House hasn’t even accepted Jesus into his heart. I’m glad Jesus helped us win the revolution. Hopefully he’ll help us in the second revoultion against Barack Osama." -Edith C

"As most Americans know any mention of Jesus predates the discovery of America by centuries."

The number of dumb things Caribou Barbie has said would fill a book, so we're just posting a few pix...



And this...



And this...



The list goes on, and who can help making fun of our almost-Vice President?



And...



But for those of you who think a word is worth a thousand pictures, here are some of the worst of the worst from our girl...

1. "As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border." --Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska's proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS's Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008 (Watch video clip)

2. "Mr. President, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke." --Sarah Palin, on how President Obama should deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin, CPAC speech, March 8, 2014

3. "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil." –-Sarah Palin, in a message posted on Facebook about Obama's health care plan, Aug. 7, 2009

4. "All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

5. "Well, let's see. There's ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ―" --Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

6. "'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'" --a Tweet sent by Sarah Palin in response to being ridiculed for inventing the word "refudiate," proudly mistaking her illiteracy for literary genius, July 18, 2010

7. "He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed." --Sarah Palin, botching the history of Paul Revere's midnight ride, June 3, 2011

8. "But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." --Sarah Palin, after being asked how she would handle the current hostilities between the two Koreas, interview on Glenn Beck's radio show, Nov. 24, 2010

9. "We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn't that ironic?" --Sarah Palin, admitting that her family used to get treatment in Canada's single-payer health care system, despite having demonized such government-run programs as socialized medicine that will lead to death-panel-like rationing, March 6, 2010

10. "Ohh, good, thank you, yes." --Sarah Palin, after a notorious Canadian prank caller, posing as French President Nicolas Sarkozy, complimented her on the documentary about her life, Hustler's "Nailin Paylin," Nov. 1, 2008 (Read more about the prank call, watch the video and see the transcript)

********************

It's easy to make fun of twits like Palin, Bachmann, Gohmert, and all the rest of the Tea Party types until we remember that John McCain actually put one of them in line for the presidency.

And those who remember Dan Quayle know that Palin isn't the first dummy elevated to the Vice Presidency.

The old saying, that the GOP is made up of a few smart people and a whole lot of dumb ones, doesn't apply since the advent of the Tea Party -- when the inmates took over the asylum.  Dumb or nuts, the Conservatives don't seem to care.

Conservatism: It needs to be criminalized.

"[Paul Revere] did warn the British. And in a shout-out, gotcha-type of question
that was asked of me, I answered candidly. And I know my American history."

Sarah Palin, defending her botched Paul Revere history lesson by taking issue
with the reporter, who simply asked her "What have you seen so far today, and
what are you going to take away from your visit?" (Fox News Sunday interview,
June 5, 2011)
