It’s still unfathomable to imagine that it was just four years ago when the entire country was just a broken hip away from the Avon Lady from the Great North getting our nuclear launch codes and winking at our foes. What’s more, it’s even harder to believe that after derailing the McCain campaign, quitting her job as Alaska Governor (governing is hard and gives your winking eye wrinkles), and torturing America even further with the advent of failed Reality tv shows, Sarah Palin is still trying to form sentences as a party player despite her lilliputian status.
During Senator John Kerry’s relentless smackdown of Mitt Romney’s complete and utter lack of consistency, the 2004 Democratic nominee and current chairman of the esteemed Foreign Relations committee used Palin’s now famous “I can see Russia from my house” line in order to illustrate how severely flawed and even more hilariously uninformed Romney’s knowledge of US-Russo relations is.
“Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska,”said Kerry. “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.” (Politico)
And since Spongebrain Squarehair simply cannot resist the opportunity to play the victim card despite using it all up when she was relevant, shot back at Kerry. Even more sad, she wasn’t aware that she had actually insulted herself by insinuating she’s too frivolous and vacuous so as to be mentioned by Senator Kerry.
“I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name,” Palin said in an interview on Fox Business Network. “How does he even know my name? I mean aren’t these guys supposed to be these big wig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me — me representing the average American who, yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over [in] Alaska and I as the governor had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation,” said Palin on Fox News Business Channel.

Oh Sarah– still painfully trying to hoodwink unsuspecting, ordinary Americans into thinking you are just like them (every average american has a tv studio in their home) and, worse yet, still pretending that you actually had an iota of policy knowledge during your beauty pageant reign as governor. Moreover, that you somehow serve a greater purpose beyond being somebody how with a vagina, of course used embarrassingly by the McCain campaign who arrogantly believed that your mere presence on the ticket would siphon Hillary votes. Even Fox News itself, the bastion of giving washed-up right-wing ideologues a 24-7 platform to cash in on their baseless propaganda , is cutting the umbilical cord on Palin. Even more telling, is how Palin joined George Bush in the witless protection program during the RNC in Tampa, both of whom were conspicuously absent. But in the end, Sarah is all about Sarah; she will continue to thrust herself into otherwise serious matters in order keep cashing in on American ignorance and lack of intellectual curiosity, the only infinite resources we have left.
