Here is a sampling of the ridiculous questions Palin was asked.
The "Blonde who is not Megyn Kelly" showed her a Twitter question asking if she would ever accept the Secretary of State position, because you as you know EVERYBODY respects Palin's knowledge of foreign affairs. (As you know she once spoke with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Only not really.)
The "Attention Whore of Babble On" responded thusly: "Ooh you know I don't see an offer like that coming, I don't foresee that, but..uh..you know if there's something I can do to help our country, and help a conservative administration that understands what it takes to..um..protect America via being friendly to our allies and being tough with our enemies, I certainly would consider helping in any manner that I could." (Wow, "friendly to allies and tough with our enemies" such a firm grip of what it is that a Secretary of State does all day don't you think?)
The "Blonde who is not Megyn Kelly" asked the Grizzled One if she would take a soldier hunting, but Palin just threw a handful of word salad at that question so we will never know. However that was then followed up with a question asking how Trig is doing these days?
Attention Whore of Babble On: "Trig is doing absolutely wonderfully! (Of course. Nobody in the Palin household is ever doing less than "wonderfully.") We're heading over to LA tonight to watch Bristol on Dancing with the Stars, and we're actually going to bring Trig with us to the studio to sit through one of Bristol's dances, and we're crossing our fingers that he'll hang in there but he's doing wonderful, Rowdy little healthy four year old. And just the light of our lives." (Who we only see when it is convenient, or when we need him for a photo op.)
(There is a glitch in the video right around here, during which apparently Palin was asked how many situps she does. She sort of looks sort of confused like she doesn't know what a sit up is and then changes the subject.)
The next question is about energy, so Palin falls back into the same old tired platitudes and well rehearsed idiocy,
Then towards the end somebody sent in a question asking if she would consider running in 2016 (If Mitt loses) or 2020 with Condi Rice on the ticket? Which is perhaps the single DUMBEST question ever put to this Wasilla airhead.
AQBO: "Wouldn't that be cool, an all female ticket? Maybe part of the...maybe that's part of the answer America needs. Um..I..um..obviously still thinking about running in the future for..uh..an office that would allow that..um..that affect the policies America needs. Uh we have a good track record, having served in the past, local, state level of government, really engaging in the relentless reform that's needed (glitch) and reigning in the growth of government, I think I could put some of that experience to good use on a national level, so obviously still thinking about it. But..um..we'll see what the future holds."
Yeah, look even this poster child for cognitive dissonance realizes that her political aspirations slammed into an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the icy depths long ago, but she simply HAS to continue pretending that she MIGHT run for office in the future in order to keep those sweaty crumpled bills from her political pole dancing coming in.
In fact just yesterday Sarah PAC's quarterly federal filings were released.
Here is what Politico gleaned from the data:
Sarah PAC, Palin’s leadership political action committee, spent more than $774,000 during the year’s third quarter after taking in more than $843,500 — the bulk of it from donors who contributed $200 or less, federal records filed Sunday show.
Palin’s PAC spent its cash on a variety of political initiatives, ranging from postage (at least $270,000) and direct mail and contact list rentals ($242,087) to tens of thousands of dollars in various travel expenses, such as agent services, airfare, vehicle rentals and operating and repairing a bus, records indicate. The PAC also incurred $18,000 in speechwriting fees.
The campaigns of 10 political candidates received direct donations from Sarah PAC in the four-figure range. They include Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.); Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a U.S. Senate candidate; Republican Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas; and Republican House candidates Mia Love of Utah and Ted Yoho of Florida. (Totally just under $60,000.)
You know I have to imagine that almost EVERYBODY in the media realizes that this PAC is really nothing more than a money laundering operation for Palin's personal use. Of the $774,000 spent two third of it went toward "postage" and "direct mail." I mean come on, what does Palin have to do, wear a shirt that says "I steal from stupid people?"
I gave the filings a quick once over last night, and it is essential the same old cast of reprobates. There is attorney Thomas Van Flein, the ever faithful RAM, Tim Crawford, Marilyn Lane, Carol Ryan, various consulting and graphics companies, and of course hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on "postage." (I think you can actually see the results of some of that "postage" in the image up above.)
The only thing newsworthy that I could find is that there was an increase since the last quarter, but that might very well be explained simply because of the political fever sweeping the conservatives right now. They have to waste their money somewhere, why not flush it down the toilet to SarahPAC?
Personally I think Palins' big day in the limelight was during the VP debate, simply because she had once faced off with a carefully muzzled Joe Biden. I don't see too many upcoming opportunities where her opinion will be considered valuable. Though I guess she might still get a handful of opportunities to provide her dipshit brand of "punditry" for Fox, but I would be kind of surprised if she received a contract anything similar to what she received last time around.
As for SarahPAC? I am past the point of being amazed that people are still giving money to this idiot. Perhaps social scientists can use it, and the ratings for "Honey Boo Boo," as measuring devices to help determine just how low the average intelligence is in America. (Spoiler alert: Pretty damn low.)
