John McCain in Dayton, Ohio, Aug. 29, 2008: ‘“She’s not — she’s not from these parts and she’s not from Washington. But when you get to know her, you’re going to be as impressed as I am.”‘
Incredibly-famous last words. Flash seven years forward into a pure-crazed, rapid-bubbling GOP 2016 presidential race comes again Sarah Palin, gift-wrapped for this environment of ignorant oratory.
A bakers-dozen of dunces vying for the Republican nomination are seemingly seeking to out-idiot each other, working up various lathers and vapors for whatever item is on the radar — all seeking to out trump The Donald in pure-miserable verbal bullshit.
Now the hook-up for the political ages — Trump and Palin, hand-in-hand, frolicking in the afterglow of an oily case of diarrhea mouth.
Palin jumped on the Trump wagon a couple of weeks ago, per the shitfaced normalcy of her clueless, careless ignorance, and gave poor-old McCain a fuck-up finger — in a nutshell paragraph of the entire Palin phenomenon via Geoffrey Dunn at HuffPost: ‘For those of us who were critical from the get-go of McCain’s selection of Palin as his running mate seven years ago, there’s more than a little irony about the defecation storm in which he now finds himself. Palin was the first national politician since George Wallace to give body to the dark, underbelly of the American right. Once she betrayed McCain and went rogue on his campaign in October of 2008 (a fact that McCain to this day has failed to acknowledge), she unleashed the politics of anger, racism and violence into mainstream American presidential politics.’
Now Trumped — via RightWing Watch this afternoon:
Yesterday, Donald Trump appeared on “The Palin Update,” a show dedicated to all things Palin.
After Trump hailed Palin as a “tough and smart” leader who bravely stood up to “disgusting lies,” host Kevin Scholla asked the GOP presidential candidate, “If there is a Trump administration, could you see picking up the phone, giving the governor a call and picking her brain on some things, or perhaps having her along in some official capacity.”
“I’d love that,” Trump replied. “Because she really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person and I think people know that.”
“Everybody loves her,” he added.
Trump went on to say that unlike the former half-term Alaska governor, his current Republican rivals are “weak” and “ineffective” leaders “to a degree that’s actually almost hard to believe.”
Voters, Trump explained, “like the Sarah Palin kind of strength, you just don’t see very much of it anymore.”
Palin recently lauded Trump as a “hero” after he insisted that John McCain was “not a war hero” and said of POWs, “I like people that weren’t captured.”
She said that just as McCain was a hero for surviving several years in a prison during the Vietnam War, “Donald Trump is a hero” because he is “giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy.”
Palin love-returned before the serve — a week ago: ‘“Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional,” Palin told CNN.’
Hard to believe there’s an actual show, ‘The Palin Update,’ but I had no idea. Maybe I didn’t want such a creature to exist, or couldn’t conceive of such a thing, or maybe Palin running for president in 2016, joining the Clown Car (last Friday, an interview at the Washington Post): ‘“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested.”‘
Laugh if you agree…
