The curse of Sarah Palin is almost impossible to escape.

Rolling stone has this great article about the last days of 30 Rock. In it they document Tina Fey having a rather unfortunate, and apparently all too common, run in with a "fan."

Courtesy of Rolling Stone:  

So yeah, sure, call her Liz (Character Liz Lemon from 30 Rock), if you must. But don't get too cute. As the late-middle-aged couple at the table next to us get up, the male half approaches, grinning: "Excuse me, aren't you Governor Sarah Palin?" It's so lame that Fey can barely manage a quarter of a fake smile. "Not for, like, three years now," she says, looking as if she'd like to dive under the table. 

The guy has his gag, though, and he's going to run with it. "I so enjoy watching you on Fox," he says. 

"Thank you, have a nice day," she replies. As he walks away, she murmurs, "Until the day I die. Until the day I die." 

I really do feel very sorry for those like Tin Fey and Julianne Moore who may forever be cursed by their connection to the Swamp Creature from Lake Lucille, but to me they will always be heroes who sacrificed much in order to show the world just what kind of a nutty, idiotic, and hateful bitch was almost given the opportunity to be one 72 year old cancer survivor's heartbeat from the White House.

After Tina used Palin's actual word salad to ridicule her, and Moore showed the psychotic side of her personality, it removed forever the threat that she will EVER become a viable threat to our country or our democracy again.


  1. Delusional thinking continues on the right...have a look:

      OMG, I went to that link, and now I need brain bleach. What a load of projection and manipulation of low-information Rethugnicans.

      Reading that article exposes the true ignorance of those who believe that $arah could have ever functioned on the national stage.

      When I first heard her RNC convention speech, I was struck by just what a vapid diva she was, a veritable Vanna White of the Repubs.

      But it was her Katie Couric interviews that revealed the truth. Her RNC speech was written for her to read,, as though she was just a stage actress.

      Once out of the religious conservative bubble, and required to think, analyze, and respond knowledgably, she was an utter failure.

      How would the average 6th grader perform in a college level english, history, or calculus class? That was Palin!

      She was completely lacking in education, politics, and even the basics of US law and government.

      Asked "what does the VP do" on national TV , she answered like a 5th grader, and got all the facts wrong.

      That answer, and all her gaffes and obvious dithering during questions sunk her from the beginning.

      It got even worse when McCain's advisors kept her from the media.

      We dodged a huge bullet in her defeat, and by quitting she sealed her own fate

      Please don't click on that link. It gives them hits and encourages them to write about her.

  2. Sad but true. They paid the price of fame but did a wonderful public service....

  3. I hadn't really considered this aspect, since Sarah's general ignorance, unethical behavior, and disdain for the truth were all adequate reasons to disqualify Palin from consideration from ANY leadership position. But for those who spend much less time following politics, both Fey and Moore did an incredible job of communicating Sarah's deficiencies to a very wide mass audience.

    Both knew their careers would likely be adversely affected, yet they still accepted the roles. In my opinion, that makes them both true patriots. And when you consider what all we've learned since then about Palin, both Moore and Fey are.heroes for putting down that insurrection, without the loss of any lives or even without firing a shot.

    "Until the day I die. Until the day I die."

    Tina, don't give them any idea's, they are 2nd Amendmenters and don't believe the law of the lands apply to them. They'll shoot you as soon as look at the elitist, rich-man's Sarah Palin.

    She shouldn't be annoyed either, even though she had ground to stand on with SNL news and 30 Rock, her caricature helped define a wanna-be POTUS' character, one that was shallow, vapid and dangerous. History books, along with the annals of comedy, and that's a fine legacy.

  5. Anonymous4:55 AM

    It would be nice to think this couldn't happen again. But what is to stop it? She has never had to face her lies and the manipulation that got her to the VP spot. She knew she was going to be selected, she was allowed to create the persona that they wanted to get the base they needed and still are after. What has changed, nothing really.
    I get so frustrated that Levi, Mercedes, and their mom know exactly whose baby they held in the photos with "Triggy Bear" or whatever they called him. And they have never spoken up. How many millions would it take to convince them to tell the truth? Would anyone care? I think so,.. I so hope that soon it will come out that Palin is such a huge fraud.. as long as they get away with this, next time it will be even worse. Crooks generally just keep getting bolder and bolder until they are caught. And by then what damage will be done to this country and lots of people?
    Palin is the one that was so disrespectful to our president when he was the nominee and has continued that disrespect during his first term. Yes, she seems to have been silenced for his second term, but the groundwork has been laid out to rile the fringe that consider themselves mainstream.
    If Levi, Mercedes, or their mom had spoken out originally, what difference would it have made? Who knows? But I think there are a lot of unanswered questions that these 3 people could put to rest. I guess the demand on them was just too high. I don't know if I would be willing to subject myself to the hailstorm that they would have endure, but if not them, then who.. who will come forward and share what they know about all the frauds and hoaxes??

    1. Anonymous5:47 AM

      It makes one wonder why those who know the goods on the Palins will not speak up.

    2. Anonymous8:15 AM

      She IS the pied piper of H8!
      Poor Tina having to endure the "Gov" shit.
      I clicked on the link and its too funny.
      They talk about US as low info voters and
      liars and cheaters...when it a FACT that the R's are for the most part the LIARS and Cheaters!
      And Low info voters! PROVEN FACT!

    Well, folks. We grabbed our popcorn and waited, sometimes without patience; but Sarah is finally finished. Her 15 minutes is finally over. Now all we can do is wait for her scandals, etc. to come out.
    I am waiting for her and Bristol's revival tents to come up. All they post anymore are bible verses. Seems strange that the Palins have not entered a church for years. I am wondering if their babies have been baptized. How would we know, there are no records that all the Palin babies actually exist.

  7. Anonymous5:39 AM

    Couldn't someone use the Freedom of Information law, to unseal the family records? Surely, since she is now just a regular (vile) citizen, there is no need to keep their misdeeds secret?I read that the McCain camp told her she was the nominee months before the announcement, then they are also involved in this fraud.McCain should be hauled bofore one of these committees he is so fond of, and questioned about this entire fiasco.

    1. Anonymous7:57 AM

      Like McCain would ever tell the truth, even under oath. She will be his legacy and DESERVEDLY so.

      As far as the FOIA goes, good luck with that. Malia Litman has been trying to access info on Tawd's prostitution involvement for months and is ignored. Too many people are complicit in the deception.

    2. Anonymous8:16 AM

      Maybe we should start FOIA McCains records for 2008?

  8. In the eyes of the majority, Sarah Palin proved that she was far from qualified for higher elected office. Her bus tour and recounting of Paul Revere's magical ride opened more eyes. The movie Game Change may have helped finish the job and her ineptitude as a Fox pundit proved that she was in way over her head. Fox News learned quickly that they were dealing with a diva who needed them to answer the questions for her, or at least submit questions ahead of time so that she could look up the answers. Most likely, no other Fox employee had to be fed such pablum. Palin thought that as long as she attacked the President that Fox and their viewers would love her. And she was partially correct. Many conservatives will defend her just 'cause...well, just 'cause she's a conservative. But her broken record of talking points soured the majority and she is left only with her fans that believe that God sent her to save them.

    All future DWTS "All Star" shows have been canceled, after the poor ratings this past fall.

    The Palin curse killed it off.

    Two talented women who honed their craft into unforgettable, award-winning performances.

    The real culprit was a thin-skinned narcissist who can't abide any kind of criticism. If she had simply adopted the "Imitation is the most serious form of flattery" approach, things may gave been different but NO, out come the claws each and every time. In doing so, she shows her immaturity and inability to be s true leader. She has no one to blame for her plight but HERSELF.

    Good riddance, bitch!

    Pics of Sarah taken in AZ this week - of course she isn't in her frigid, but oh so beloved, Alaska. Had to post, because she's wearing a see-through "Girls with Guns" shirt with a black bra underneath, big gaudy rhinestone belt, and ratty jeans. Couldn't see the shoes, but probably huge platforms again because, in the video, she's hanging onto Todd and tottering when she walks. Well, at list she isn't catatonic and curled up in a fetal position...too bad!

    1. Anonymous7:18 AM

      Well, at list she isn't catatonic and curled up in a fetal position...

      That was last week. They probably should have allowed her a little more time to get herself together but may want to force it for the assault weapons they want so much to get into our schools.

      SHE REALLY MUST ANSWER THE NRA CALL AND JOSH PAINTER. She needs to get back to a loud screech to be heard and return to her old self.

      If not people will think she did one of those do-it-yourself lobotomies. Look at her, it sure looks like something desperate happened to her. I wonder if she has any memory of who she was?

    Sarah was spotted in Scottsdale yesterday. The old hooah looks pretty rough.

    1. Anita Winecooler7:01 PM

      lol @ hooah!

      And her pimp, too! Time, drugs and gravity haven't been kind to the grifter!

  13. Anonymous6:34 AM

    Palin at the Russo Steele "collector automobile auction" in Scottsdale AZ yesterday (link previously posted): she was assigned a "driver" and posed for pics in one of the cars, which means she was paid to be at this event. Wow, how the mighty one has fallen.

    Her Girls with Guns shirt is described as 60% cotton/40% polyester "Scope Burn Out Long Sleeve" with GWG encircled in a pink gun sight, um, I mean surveyor's mark...LOL!

    1. jcinco7:13 AM

      on sale for $29.99, she continues to be a stylish fashion icon..haha..actually she appears to be 2 lbs. heavier than karen carpenter's last photos before succumbing to her anorexia...

    2. Anonymous7:22 AM

      Is that shirt the best she can do for the NRA call? If I were them I would be disappointed. She is the most recognized name associated with NRA and she is a Mama Grizzly, or was. Who better to answer the call for protecting children in school? This half ass answer to the NRA call out to her is pathetic.

    The tina fey story was on the politico site and the comments section was full of palin defenders. These clever people could only muster comments about how ugly and untalented they think tina fey is in their crazy palin world. The fans of palin's are as vile as palin.

    1. Anonymous8:19 AM

      How ugly Tina was? She looked like Palin, she looked very much like Palin, which is why she imitated her so well. If Tine is ugly, so is Sarah.

  15. Anonymous7:48 AM

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler worked Palin into their routine at the awards show last Sunday. It was pretty funny, although if I had helped write the routine (as if!) I would have had Amy tell Tina to 'not diminish yourself by mentioning her name."
    That would have hit too close to home for Palin, don't you think??

  16. Anonymous8:26 AM

    This has been a good week fore learning the truth about a girl friend of two years who didn't exist, and a 7 time winner of the Tour de France who cheated big time.

    Someone somewhere does know the truth about Sarah Palin not giving birth to Trig, and this might be a good time to cash in. It is clear that the media does not do investigative journalism. It's too expensive. It took 15 years to unmask Jerry Sandusky. It took years and years to unmask Lance Armstrong. The baseball writer know that Barry Bonds and other players were doping, but the only thing that they did was to keep them out of the Baseball Hall of Fame, this year. With all of this truth telling, let's hear from Alaska about Sarah!

  17. I would not use the "N"ever word about any political personality no matter how deranged they may currently appear to be. The nation's appetite for political pablum and simplistic phrases grows like cancer -- at first slow and hidden then bursting into view and metastasizing throughout the body politic. We thought we wouldn't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore and that only lasted a few years. We thought that the lambasting that Barry Goldwater got was the death knell of conservatism until Reagan stealthily slid in under the radar and set in motion the forces that gave us the Teabaggers of today.

    Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty and shining light on this dark place is a public service because if she ever crawls underground, Cow knows what might come creeping out in the future.

  18. No, not until the day she dies.

    Palin looks like she'll be dead in a few years. (It will be listed s heart failure but will be the result of either an eating disorder or drug use, but will be swept under the table on the death certificate.)

    Fey and Moore will go on to better things and be known for them. Palin and their impersonation of her will be forgotten.

    Just a few more year, Tina. And less and less as those years pass.

  19. Anonymous10:22 AM

    The trouble here is that Tina Fey does actually have a physical resemblance to Sarah Palin - Julianne Moore happily does not resemble her as much when not in the movie Game Change. Julianne has the red hair thing, too.

    When I watched the Emmys last weekend I was struck again by how much Tina looks like Sarah used to look, even when not pretending to be her. Nobody can be 100% sure that middle aged guy did not genuinely mistake her for Sarah.

    Game change is one of those movies for me - whenever it repeats on cable and I stumble upon it, I cannot help but watch.

  20. Anita Winecooler7:10 PM

    I feel badly for "Bossypants", being typecast because of a comedy skit must be hard to take, but I'm sure she understands the average fox news watching male's mind (or what's left of it),
    What's great is that Tina and Julianne are both talented, beautiful, smart and fit to go on and keep winning awards in their industry.

    Sarah is and always will be the brunt of a bad joke, and she only has one person to blame for it-

    Katie Couric.

  21. Anonymous10:14 AM

    Palin is so yesterday's news that even a tell-all book on Trigg has plunged in market value. Probably now worth about $5 mil at this point.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
