Future of the Republican Party, My Ass


I just get the biggest laugh out of all this ridiculous talk about “Palin 2012” like she’s got some kind of serious shot at being on the top of the GOP ticket in 2012. Gimme a break. The woman can barely string together a coherent sentence without written remarks in front of her. She’s given one (ONE!) press conference since she was selected as McCain’s running mate and that was after the election where her side lost.

Here’s a recent sampling of her talking in public and, no, I am NOT making this up:

Sitting here in these chairs that I’m going to be proposing but in working with these governors who again on the front lines are forced to and it’s our privileged obligation to find solutions to the challenges facing our own states every day being held accountable, not being just one of many just casting votes or voting present every once in a while, we don’t get away with that. We have to balance budgets and we’re dealing with multibillion dollar budgets and tens of thousands of employees in our organizations.

Read the whole interview with Wolf Blitzer HERE. There’s much more hilarity, I assure you. Daniel Larison decodes this mess of … words … HERE.

So, no. This woman is so not going to be in any way a mover and shaker in the Republican Party, not until she learns to speak English.

But you want to know the surest sign that she’s not going to play a role? It’s HERE. The Republican Governors Association met this week. To start with, and this is the place where she gave her four-question press conference, her presentation to the group was essentially a complete rehash of her campaign stump speech complete with multiple references to Joe the Plumber. But more than that, today when they selected their leadership, guess who wasn’t elected to any position whatsoever.

Yup. Sarah the Governor.

Honey, you are so last week. Please stop making with the talky-talky-speech stuff now, okay, hon? Pretty please?

You’re making us all dumber.

I’m just sayin’…
