If you live in Florida, felt an odd vibe and heard a strange noise on Wednesday, fear not. It was just Sarah Palin gracing Florida with her presence, and that giant sucking sound you heard was politicians running for cover as she handed out endorsements.
Palin attended a dinner with conservatives at The Breakers in Palm Beach, and stopped at the headquarters of NewsMax along the way.
She then took to her “editorial” page on Facebook to write her formal endorsements of Florida candidates (or someone did), while lecturing Floridians on the importance of our elections, and “informing” us on who to vote for and why. Sarah has spoken.
I hate to break it to Sarah, but the majority of people in Florida would never take the advice of someone who probably couldn’t find our state on a map, and who was elected Governor of Alaska merely because she was “not the other guy” who was running, not to mention that she quit mid-term to profit from her latest failure as a Vice Presidential candidate, and she imagines that she sees world leaders peering at her over her front porch.
Hallucinations aside, Palin is probably unaware of her bottom of the barrel favorability polls and that even people like whacky Carly “Barbara-Boxer’s-hair-is-just-SO-yesterday-and-did-I-mention-I-also-killed-Hewlett-Packard?” Fiorina and her job outsourcing cohort Meg Whitman are trying desperately to flee an endorsement from her, “you betcha!'” Even crazy radical Tea Bagger candidate Joe Miller, who has trouble hitting the “send button” on his e-mails, wouldn’t give her a “Presidentially qualified” endorsement beyond acknowledging that, while she is breathing, hey, anythings possible!
Sarah, or her Facebook ghostwriter, had this advice for voters in Florida:
Had a great visit with Newsmax and the great folks in the Sunshine State yesterday! I spoke to Michael Reagan about his father’s grand legacy and to Dick Morris about not accepting what President Obama wants America to believe is some kind of “new normal” of economic woe. I spoke to concerned Floridians about the energy in the Tea Party movement, and explained that I wrote a lot about it in my book, “America by Heart”; and I had the privilege of being interviewed on Sean Hannity’s show regarding voter turnout favoring conservatives this year.
Florida is fortunate to have great candidates willing to run and serve for all the right reasons. The repeal of the mother-of-all-unfunded mandates, Obamacare, is foremost on the minds of so many concerned Floridians, along with job, jobs, jobs. Thankfully they have candidates bold enough to promise to shake things up, put “We the People” first, and support free market and results-oriented solutions to all these challenges. Please support these great Sunshine State candidates:
Rick Scott for Governor
Pam Bondi for Attorney General
Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate
Steve Southerland (FL-2)
Allen West (FL-22)
Sandy Adams (FL-24)
One thing we can thank Sarah for are those endorsements. One can only hope that those candidates sink like stones in the polls as others have after an official nod from Palin.
Just a couple of things I would like to point out here. Sarah doesn’t read, or she would have known that slimy prostitute aficionado and FOX commentator (go figure) Dick Morris whom she “had a great visit with” had a few words to say about one of those candidates himself, Rick Scott. Morris recently said that “Rick Scott is a criminal who belongs in jail, not in the governor’s office.” I may have to take a shower after admitting this, but I have to say I kind of agree with Morris on this one. (Shuddering.) Didn’t look that one up first did you Sarah?
As for others on the list, well it’s predictable because they’re all GOP-Tea Bagger candidates. Pam Bondi, probably endorsed because she’s also a woman, and although she has no children, she’s a “Momma Grizzly” by osmosis I guess?
Marco Rubio, well, he’s the male-Palin of Florida, and if you gave them the words “Reagan, tax cuts, common sense and conservative” perhaps between the two of them they could string a sentence together. Lets face it, she doesn’t know anything about them beyond the fact that they have an “R” behind their names on the ballot.
Allen West? He’s a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. He also claims to have higher security clearance higher than the President in spite of facing a court martial over brutal interrogations, and he claims he threatened to kill a man in Iraq, among other things. Another “fact-check” Palin missed.
As for those “concerned Floridians” she spoke to? Well, she was preaching to the choir. “Obamacare” is actually popular among voters and hasn’t gone far enough, and on the “jobs, jobs, jobs?” Thanks to the stimulus, 153,000 jobs have been created or saved in Florida thanks to that stimulus. Sarah would also probably be surprised to find that 6,000 jobs have been created or saved as well in her home state of Alaska, if she could tear herself away from her home studio, her mirror and her ego long enough to study up on the subject.
And speaking of studying up, or in Sarah’s case, no studying at all, there’s a new article in the November Vanity Fair that, among other things, tells what the disastrous toll of picking Palin as his running mate took on John McCain. Never mind what it did to the country and the unqualified droves of potential candidates we find coming out of the woodwork now, thanks in part to the “gem” that was Sarah Palin, and to John McCain in 2008. A virtual tsunami of idiots who know nothing about governing, nor anything about the constitution they use as a talking point, just like Palin.
Yes, Sarah, we do have “candidates bold enough to promise to shake things up.” Unfortunately we don’t need things “shaken up.” We need people who can govern.
What we don’t need, or want, is your advice. On anything.
