Pretend human being and professional winking quitter, Sarah Palin, is back in the news this week to remind us that, much like Herpes, she will never go away and any period of halcyon dormancy will eventually result in the horrid disease making a comeback. Now, one would think following the premier of HBO’s Game Change, the dramatic film about how America was a broken hip away from the vindictive Avon lady controlling America’s nukes, Sarah Palin would leave our minds forever. Like equally cantankerous political comedian Lewis Black once brilliantly said of Sarah Palin, “I don’t think she exists.”
Nevertheless, that certainly hasn’t stopped the syntax slaughterer from the north from using Fox News as her personal platform of steadily streaming utterly fallacious myths, baseless smears, and ridiculously oversimplified Republican talking points–albeit in a hilarious Frances McDormand from Fargo voice. No offense to the wonderful actress!
Following an Obama reelection campaign video that apparently used footage of Palin, Mama Grizzly fired back with some fighting words.
“I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s ‘enemy of the week’ if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about,” Palin wrote in a note on her Facebook page, posted late Monday.

Then, in her best boxing paper champion impression and at the apex of ignorant arrogance, Palin followed up with this challenge:
“I’m willing and free to discuss these issues with the President anywhere, anytime,” Palin wrote. (Source: The Hill)
Just as soon as the leader of the free world diffuses the ongoing conflict in the Strait of Hormuz; continuing to rebuild the US economy; working with the most obstructionist opposition party in history; killing international terrorists; handle an increasingly hostile Israel and the ongoing Iranian nuclear crisis; and all the while putting to rest some of the most outlandish smears ever leveled on a president throughout history, then I’m sure he’ll take the time to laugh uproariously at Sarah Palin’s criminally insane and self-involved challenge.
Sarah’s rage appears to have come from The Obama campaign putting out a video that calls out Palin by name. The video contends: ”Sarah Palin and the far right say President Obama will bring back racial discrimination … against white people.” Obviously the campaign made the mistake of awakening the Kraken.
”It shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed,” said Palin, claiming the president was engaging in “diversionary tactics“.
Palin’s pathological problem of making outlandish attacks and leveling personal attacks and smears with no warning, only to then play the “victim” when the subject [Obama] of said crazy lady’s attacks retaliates, appears to have no end. But should Sarah wish to debate another fictitious right-wing vulgarian, who has profited immensely off of personal attacks and sensationalistic vitriol, then maybe she should take on Anne Coulter. Anne Coulter recently decried how “charlatans” like Sarah Palin managed to remain prominent voices within the conservative movement, according to The Shark Tank. In the mean time, let’s hope she goes back into dormancy.
