The past year has presented a wealth of unintentional comedy from right-wing raconteurs whose generosity in embarrassing themselves was profound. There was Donald Trump and Dick Morris and Allen West and many others vying for the top spot in the Crackpottery Hall of Fame.
However, this year, as in much of the recent past, the competition was too stiff and everyone had to bow, once again, to the Queen of Quackery: Sarah Palin. What follows are just a few of the most memorably humiliating hijinks in a year of world class buffoonery.
Today Show Ratings Down With Sarah Palin As Guest Host
In a desperate attempt to counter-program ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC invited Palin to guest host their Today Show. The result was an episode that underperformed NBC’s average and may have been the catalyst that led to ABC eventually beating NBC in the morning news wars for the first time in years.
Sarah Palin Calls Nancy Pelosi A ‘Dingbat’ – No, Really!
Appearing with fellow crackpot Sean Hannity on Fox News, Palin responded to a question about Democratic Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi by saying…
“Well, first off, Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat. And she is the perfect spokesperson for this whole agenda of the far-left running the Democrat Party.”
These are only a few of the great examples available at News Corpse, which you can see yourself by clicking the link at the top.
You know I was just thinking of doing something similar to this, and was wondering when I would find the time, so I am completely in the debt of News Corpse for doing such a fine job and saving me many hours of research.
Feel free to add any of your own examples if you would like.
