It’s Hard Out There for a Veep

A wanna-be Veep that is.  From the depths of comments on Mudflats:

tamarack (23 Sept 2008 16:22:21) : Palin sighting from a friend in New York-

“I was walking down 76th towards 5th when a bodyguard stopped me, explaining that the street was closed for just a few minutes. Sarah Palin was inside one of the consulates (don’t know which) and the bodyguards were waiting for her to step outside, into her limo, before allowing pedestrian traffic. Well, when she did come out, everyone on the street from the construction guys to the ladies who lunch gave her the biggest BOOOOOOOOO you have ever heard in your life. It was awesome.”

I suppose she considered them all eastern elitists and dismissed the whole thing.

Cajun Boy writes about and links to Matt Taibbi’s article on Sarah Palin in Rolling Stone.  Be sure you’ve imbibed the morning beverage of your choice (PG Tips for me, dearie, ta) before you take the plunge.  Here’s just a snippet:

“We’re used to seeing such blatant cultural caricaturing in our politicians. But Sarah Palin is something new. She’s all caricature. As the candidate of a party whose positions on individual issues are poll losers almost across the board, her shtick is not even designed to sell a line of policies. It’s just designed to sell her. The thing was as much as admitted in the on-air gaffe by former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan, who was inadvertently caught saying on MSNBC that Palin wasn’t the most qualified candidate, that the party “went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives.”

Back to Mudflats for another insightful comment:

Regi (23 Sept 2008 17:48:26) :  Palin is a Mary Sue.

(Mary Sue) is a pejorative term used to describe a fictional character who plays a major role in the plot and is particularly characterized by overly idealized and clichéd mannerisms, lacking noteworthy flaws, and primarily functioning as wish-fulfillment fantasies for their authors.


This is a personal blog. Expect a potpourri of stuff.

  1. Wow. Sarah Palin getting booed in New York.

    What’s this person’s next report? Sliced bread?

    The Proc’s-a-comin’ down to your next Drinking Liberally meeting and make it Smackdown Liberally.

    I kid, I kid. 🙂

  2. Poor Libs. You’re so frustrated with Governor Palin, my heart bleeds for you. You try to pigeon-hole her into a box marked “evil” but she simply doesn’t fit there. So in desperation you boo her on a public street in hopes it will make her go away. The only purpose it serves is to make you look foolish. Poor babies.

  3. @Pasadena Closet Conservative – Please attend to that bleeding heart of yours stat. I don’t want it to affect your brain.

    @The Proc – Hey, whatever happened to your basketball smackdown with Haderlein?

    @MH – Hadn’t heard that one. Do you suppose she smells of frankincense and myrrh?
