In other words it was kind of boring.
But of course THAT couldn't last, so then we saw the "Sarah Goes Wild" version on the Cavuto show.
Now THIS is the real Sarah Palin!
|Click gaping maw to play part one of video.|
Cavuto: Where are you? Are you in Arizona.
The Lunatic from Lake Lucille: "I am and...uh..happy to see you at least through a monitor Neil glad YOU'RE there."
From there Palin is breathing heavily and sweating like Mitt Romney watching Clint Eastwood talk to a chair. I'm guessing that in between her buttoned up appearance on Hannity, and THIS one, that she just might have imbibed in a few (dozen) liquid refreshments. You know because it's HOT!
When Cavuto suggests that the Romney camp is going to embrace capitalism that night and say it's okay to be rich, Palin has this response:
LFLL: "Well imagine that! Someone will tout what we all learned in Economics 101, and that is free men and free markets are a foundational principle of America's wonderful exceptional-ism and um our prosperity. And the better somebody does in America the better we ALL can do in America. So yes, thank you Lord somebody's going to talk about success and the expectation Neil (Sounds like Nil) for rewarding hard work. That's what we try to teach out kids right? Work ethic! You'll be rewarded for it!"
Okay wait. Isn't THIS the woman whose kids have ridden on her coattails their ENTIRE lives thus far? And who have eschewed the idea of hard work in exchange for reality show appearances and taking credit for the hard work of others? (I am thinking ghostwritten books here.)
Then Cavuto asks about this year's political unity and suggests that even a ticket featuring Jesus and Moses could not have been successful in 2008 due to the financial meltdown.
The word "meltdown" causes the lipsticked pitbull to curl her lips into a defensive snarl.
LFLL: "Well first make sure that you clarify that the 'meltdown' in '08 was an economic meltdown, and was out of OUR ticket's control and...um...and didn't have necce..
LFLL: "Okay thank you. Just want to make doggone sure you're clear on THAT!
Once that is out of the way Palin calms down, and launches into her usual Obama bashing, and claims that EVERYTHING will be fine once he is replaced in the White House.
Then for some reason, still believing that Palin has something significant to add to the political dialogue, Cavuto asks her how the new Republican ticket should respond to charges by the Obama camp that Paul Ryan voted for the majority of the spending that has resulted in our current financial woes.
LFLL: "Well THAT'S when a mea culpa comes in quite handy and everybody who voted for TARP and stimulus, and six trillion dollars additional now that we, in debt, that we hand to our kids and grandkids to have to pay off that..which totals now sixteen trillion dollars in debt by growing government these last four years under Obama, well now everybody needs to say 'hey I'm sorry man for votin' for that, I'm sorry for supporting these bellouts (sic), and the Cash for Clunkers, and all those goody programs where centralized government planners tried to plan out economy, and they felled (sic). Well now 'mea culpa' say 'Sorry shouldn'ta done that. We learned our lesson and we will not repeat this, and we will not continue to incur debt. Period! We will engage in austerity measures.' They need to actually start using the 'A' word 'austerity' we'll live within our means in America to let the private sector grow."
Yep you heard it right folks. The "Grizzled Economist" just declared that Republicans need to embrace the "A" word, "austerity. The same austerity that has caused such dramatic financial problems in Europe.
And the Lunatic from Lake Lucille kept right on tossing her word salad all the way through part two of this interview.

LLFL: "But do you know why it's a good strategy to do? Because now we have a character, a person on the ticket, in Paul Ryan. Who is in a perfect position to claim this 'mea culpa' and say 'Sorry we shouldn't have gone down that direction, But what he has done, he has opposed, but then he proposed. He opposed additional felled (sic) policies of Obama's right? Additional spending and ignoring of common sense uh..uh..common sense economic principle plans, time tested truths based on free markets to get us out of the rut that we're in. And Paul Ryan DID propose a budget, President Obama hasn't even had a budget passed in his four years. At least Paul Ryan has been able to propose, on paper, a plan people can look at and say 'Well that's better than what the other guy did to us for four years.'"
So what the crazy lady is essentially saying is that Ryan should get excused for his youthful indiscretions of voting for ALL of Bush's terrible economic polices, but mad props for NOT voting for any of Obama's. (You know like he was instructed not to do by the Republican leadership.)
My that does show SUCH character, doesn't it?
Yet despite the ridiculousness of that comparison, Neil Cavuto says just about the craziest thing that ANYBODY has ever said to Sarah Palin (Aside of course from "Will you be my VP?")
Cavuto: "You have a way of just putting it in a nutshell in English."
I know right? What the fuck did HE just listen to?
Then to demonstrate just how addled he is, Cavuto sort of throws the Romney/Ryan ticket under the bus with a "Who knows what happens with this ticket?" followed by asking Palin if SHE plans to run for office in the near future.
LFLL: "You know what? I appreciate that compliment because that's why I'm a Tea party patriot. the Tea Party grassroots movement that is full of people like me. The average Joe. We are 'Joe Sixpack.' We're out there raising kids, running businesses, just..you know trying to get by essentially and you know Todd and I have been very, very blessed and privileged. And we worked very, very hard all of our lives, and materially speaking, and in other respects too, we have a LOT. And I so appreciate it. (Yeah thanks SarahPAC!) But we're also a good example, as so many in the tea Party are, of what it means to be an American, Working hard, expectation for reward for that hard work. Being an example for others. To prove that you can accomplish ANYTHING in America. I don't know where my path will take me politically, because to tell you the truth Nil (sic) politics drives me crazy. (Oh yeah, blame politics for your insanity!) and I don't necessarily like politicians. But I want to keep helping the rest of America."
Yeah you know speaking as a longstanding member of the "rest of America" we would REALLY like you to go away now lady.
So Palin does not even LIKE politicians? Gee I wonder how they will feel about receiving her unsolicited advice all of the time after hearing that?
(Quick Sarah there's a unburned bridge over there! Get some matches and gasoline and do your thing!)
Yeah she managed to keep her shit together for Hannity, but THIS is who she will always revert back to just as soon as Fox News tranquilizer dart wears off.
At this point I ALSO believe that the Grizzled Mama is hoping that Romney/Ryan crashes and burns so that SHE can keep her job at Fox News chewing up the scenery and spitting venom in Obama's direction.
Essentially if Romney were to win Palin's Fox gig would almost certainly go away. But if Obama wins...."Release the Kraken!"
