Conversation on Over Time between Bill Maher and Steve Schmidt infuriates last few remaining Palin-bots.

Courtesy of the Daily Caller:  

On Friday night’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” during its online “Overtime” segment, Schmidt tersely responded to a viewer question about McCain’s selection of Palin to be his running mate: 

MAHER: Steve Schmidt, ‘Is it possible you picked Sarah Palin the wrong year?’ Oh, my. ‘Could she have swung the women vote in 2012 enough to have put Romney in the White House?’ 


MAHER: No? That’s your answer? 


MAHER: Never again. Your feeling is there never is a good time for Sarah Palin? 


MAHER: Well, do you think she has learned anything in the years since? 


Yeah I don't think there are very many rational people in this country that would disagree with Schmidt's potion on this.  In fact in my opinion he demonstrated remarkable restraint.

Speaking of restraint, or the lack thereof, the last life raft full of Palin worshipers over at the Sea O'Pee took great umbrage at Schmidt for stating the obvious:  

Yeah, well we feel the same way about you too, skookums. 

Maher is killing two birds with one stone with this kind of footage. First, Misogynist Maher loves any opportunity to disrespect Governor Palin so it makes sense he’d play footsie with Stevie and give him a chance to dis her. Second, he’s putting the spotlight on an even bigger self-important loudmouth buffoon than himself who he wants the public to perceive as a leading voice in the Republican party, not only because Schmidt is endlessly repulsive and thus by connection so is the GOP but also because Snakeoil Steve helps confirm that even the “leading voices” of the Republican party shudder at what a horrible mistake the Palin choice was in 2008.

They then go on to dredge up every bit of information they can (Almost exclusively from Right Wing sources of course) to attack Maher and Schmidt. And do so with such fervor and zeal that it is actually quite comical.

"Yeah Maher is a misogynist and a socialist, and Steve Schmidt is ungrateful, and bald, and probably smells funny."

All I can say is that those poor schmucks over at the Sea O'Pee can bail til their little arms fall off, and they will NEVER manage to remove enough sea water to bring the Palin political Titanic up from the seabed of irrelevancy on which it now rests.

But hey, as long as they are willing to try, we are willing to laugh at their efforts.

    Sarah Palin begins 2013 speaking tour

    Sarah Palin Heads Roster at Leadership Forum at Southeastern University

    Southeastern University is gearing up for its annual fundraising leadership event next week, featuring former Alaska governor Sarah Palin as star attraction.

    Palin, 49, the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president, will be at the 2013 National Leadership Forum along with a list of other speakers. She will talk about leadership.

    Brian Carroll, vice president for university advancement, said ticket sales are going well, but there still are some available. The forum has changed over the years, he said, and has become an event that is talked about in the university network.

    Word has gotten out about the event, he said, and other schools have approached SEU administrators to learn more about the model.

    "We are in our seventh year doing this," he said. "It's become, well, not routine, but we have a pattern. We've made a lot of course corrections over the years."

    The forum is geared toward leaders in the business, professional and church communities.

    "The main purpose of it is the heart of our culture," Carroll said. "It is a culture to serve, and that extends from our students out into the com­munity. In the past year, we had 33,000 service hours in the community. That is unbelievable."

    Ticket information is online at Forum tickets cover both days of the event and are sold in four categories: $450 for non-reserved tickets; $650 for a reserved ticket; $1,000 for a VIP ticket and $1,500 for an executive ticket.

    Other speakers on the agenda are:

I guess a private evening reception with a withered, mannish, dog shit throwing, narcississist is their idea of VIP amenities. Wonder who she'll drag along for her entourage? Barstool for her good christian values or Todd the Pimp for his contribution to the health and wellbeing of women in Alaska? What a fucking waste of money that would be, but the PeePonders will sell their souls for a chance to sniff the backside of this pathetic witch.

      I dare Sarah to tell those kids that no matter how tough it is, ya gotta keep on going. Whatever you do, don't quit.

      Examples of Sarah's leadership:
      1. Hired a city manager when she was Mayor of Wasilla
      2. Quit her job as governor
      3.Instead of leading her political party as a former VP candidate, she turned to the Tea Party, dividing the Republicans (a good thing, but not a good quality of leading)
      4. Leadership also involves listening to the advice of everyone around you in order to be well informed-- not a quality that Palin has shown
      5. Instead of accepting responsibility for anything, blame the media

      By the way, less than 14 hours per year per student of community service is not all that much to brag about, especially when they consider politicking for RW nuts campaigns as "community service" and 2012 was a presidential election year. For comparison, Boy Scouts in our troop have to complete 20 hours per quarter to advance rank, and most of the older belong to an associated service organization that volunteers one full weekend per quarter, and none of it is passing out fliers. It's hammering nails, cleaning up nature trails, messy and hard work that contributes thousands of dollars to their communities in time and labor. And they don't brag on themselves, so I will.

      Sorry if I'm not all that impressed with Mr Carroll's pride and joy there. He sure as hell can't pick a decent person to 'teach' leadership. Grifting skills? Yes. But Leadership? LOL. Hell, No!!!

    Truth hurts. Much as it pains me to say this about a Republican, Steve Schmidt is well-respected by both parties. More to the point, he is painfully honest. While I disagree with his politics, I have great respect for his integrity, something not often found in rethugs.

    1. Anonymous10:42 AM

      I think that in Game Change, he and Nicole Wallace realized early what a bad choice Sarah Palin was for VP. They were supposed to have hatched a plan, in case McCain won, to keep Palin as far away from the White House as possible. They knew that she was not qualified, yet they worked hard to get her and McCain elected. That was dangerous considering that McCain was 72 at the time and had a history of recurring cancer. The strain of the job could have inflicted Sarah Palin on the country for four years, some scary thought.

    2. Anonymous11:31 AM

      Thank God they came out w/the movie "Game Change" and it's been shown over and over again on HBO. Sarah Palin was shown as the person she was documented to be.

      Nicole Wallace didn't cast her vote for McCain and Palin, which was very hard for her to admit to Schmidt!

      They knew they were going to lose to Obama and Biden and thank God they did!!!

    4. WakeUpAmerica11:45 AM

      First, Schmidt and Wallace were VERY supportive of Game Change which seriously damaged the Alaskan Dingbat's creds. Second, I'm sure Schmidt et al had a plan to neutralize Palin if their team was elected. Remember, she was picked at the last minute. They were "all in" by the time they discovered they had a paranoid looney on the ticket. Definitely an "Oh shit! Oh dear!" moment. Cranky McShame should have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town for that fiasco.

      Steve Schmidt voted for John McCain in the state of California. At the time he cast his vote he already knew that McCain was going to loose the election so voting for McCain wouldn't have made a difference anyway. He spoke about this topic a while ago during an interview! Get over it already! His vote for McCain wasn't going to matter one bit and he knew it!

    9. Anonymous11:54 PM

      Schmidt and Wallace had no way to neutralize Palin if McCain had been elected. She would have been elected VP along with McCain and there would not have been a single fucking thing they could do about it. In fact I'd bet the farm that had that happened and Palin's spectacular unfitness became a problem, neither Schmidt nor Wallace would have uttered a peep. They would not have dared, for the sake of their reputations. It's a hell of a lot less risky for them to trash someone they DIDN'T manage to get elected. They are both self-serving hypocritical political whores who make me almost as sick as Palin.

    I think someone doesn't know the difference between 'skookum' and 'snookums'.

    'Skookum' is a Chinook jargon word, and in general use, refers to something good. If you were to say, 'That's a skookum horse', you would be telling someone that the horse in question is a good, sturdy, strong horse.

    'Snookums', on the other hand, is a term of endearment, but with a sarcastic inflection.

    I am almost positive that the word desired is 'snookums', but one never knows.

    Horse shit. Your husband lost because he's a selfish, arrogant, self important lying sack of shit whose party didn't even want him. Good God, you BIMBO, did you never notice that EVERYONE was in the lead in the primaries OTHER than your husband? Did you not put two and two together and come up with the fact that EVERYONE got to lead because they WEREN'T your husband? He was the LAST person the republican party wanted to go with, was that NOT OBVIOUS to you as well?

    Listen up, idiot. The nomination was BARELY won by Mitt, and only because everyone else in the race was a TOTAL and COMPLETE fool. Your husband was the LAST person in the field they wanted. The election was NOT a goddamned shoe in for you and the IDIOT you're sitting next to. If your fucking husband can't tell the truth any better than he did, can't make a speech without insulting damn near half the country, and can't convince anyone that he's got a freaking CLUE of how to run things, that is not the fault of the media.

    You will NEVER get it. The vast majority of the people in this country KNOW what you think of us, and you are NOT the people we want in office. GOT IT? You are a selfish, arrogant, stuck up asshole who thinks she knows what everyone else SHOULD want, and WE are the problem when we don't agree with YOU. YOU SUCK, lady. GET IT? YOU FUCKING SUCK! I'd vote for a welfare mother over your shit eating husband every freaking day of the year. They at least know how to live on a REAL budget, something you and your company destroying husband know NOTHING about. We wanted a real HUMAN in office, not your goddamned robot.

    I'll say this once and for all so that you MIGHT get it: WE DON'T LIKE YOUR HUSBAND OR YOU! We DIDN'T want YOU in the white house, LIVE WITH IT.

    I hate to pile on the former governor of Alaska,... But I will anyway.

    I went to see Jack and the Giant Slayer with a friend and his young son yesterday. It was 33 degrees and snow flurries and not much else to do at 2:00 in the afternoon while my bud's wife and 16 yr old daughter were at the shooting range taking a handgun safety class. There was a murder in our quiet, little suburban area over Christmas, a home intrusion that was supposed to be a regular breaking and entering, but the son was home from college and he'd left his car at school over the holiday break. The thief stabbed him with a knife from the family's kitchen after he realized the kid was home.

    Anyway, with that being big news overnight, an entrepreneurial-minded gun dealer and range owner quickly put together a nice little package deal with a safety certification class and a .25 pistol "for the ladies", and made a small fortune in about a week's time.

    So yesterday, my best friend's wife and daughter spent 8-5 learning the do's and don'ts on gun handling, safety, cleaning, operating their weapon, sighting, etc. they were scared shitless to open the boxes at first---probably not a bad thing there---but they were pretty damn confident when they got home.

    They enjoyed shooting the targets and they are both competitive---neither could shut up about out shooting the other, blah blah blah--- it was kind of neat to see how comfortable they were versus a week ago when I asked to see one of the pistols and they just handed me the box. lol

    I always kid with his wife bc she was one of the gals who really got sucked in early with Sarah back in '08, but to her credit, she was also one who realized pretty quickly that is stupid, so I can still tease her about her 1-month crush on the Quitter. Anyeay, when the girls got home, we played the clip of fSarah hunting with Creepy Chucky Sr from SPAK on their big screen TV via Netflix/YouTube.. I told my friend that it will be interesting to hear what they say about it.

    The next thing I heard was 'Mom! Look at how she's holding the rifle! Her index finger!!!' Both of them were floored. Then the passing back and forth of the weapon from Creepy Sr to Sarah. "Mom! That weapon is loaded! You don't do that!!!" and on and on. It took 3 minutes, and a one-day gun nut gal who just turned 16, said "Who is that lady hunting there? This must be her first time to handle a gun in her life. What's she even doing on this show? Is this even real?"

    My friend and I were spitting bourbon and ice everywhere and his wife was grabbing paper towels, as she told their daughter " They think it's so funny because I though this lady was smart at first, and they probably did too, but they changed their mind a day before I did. That lady was the governor of Alaska who said she was a big hunter who grew up hunting and fishing and all that outdoor stuff."

    "Well Mom, I guess she was lying because she would've killed herself or somebody else by now."

    I told my friend, "Somebody was paying attention in her little gun class. Your daughter is now officially a REAL NRA Certified gun goonie."

    Two more witnesses have seen with their own eyes what a fraud Sarah is and always has been. Yesterday was a great day !

    Sarah has been calling on the skookums media to tell the truth. When they do, it hurts. (Steve Schmidt is now media. He is appears on MSNBC).

    What is the skookums media, anyway? Sarah used that term in a twitter a day or two ago. The internet tells us that "skookum" (no s at the end) means brave, great, exceptional. There is an organization for disabled people that uses that name: Surely Sarah isn't making fun of disabled people who are looking for meaningful employment?

      Schmidt can't tell about the fake pregnancy. He would be blackballed by the money folks that run the religious right. He would be skewered as a lesson for others to respect the boundaries. Not to protect Sarah, but the Paxson Media and affiliate money that could really be hurt by the revelation. Mark Burnett & Co didn't choose Sarah. Sarah was dropped in his lap to pay her off for her going along with the plan to hijack the Republican campaign in 2008 bc Paxson had the goods on McCain with Vicki Iseman, who was lobbying for Paxson Media ( now ION NETWORKS). The religious right had McCsin by the balls and forced him to take Palin, and he knew he wouldn't have a prayer (pun intended) of winning without their money and votes from the far right. Remember, McCain was severely pissed that he couldnt run with his old neocon suck-buddy, Joe Lieberman. McCain acquiesced but he was given an anchor with Palin, not a life boat with oars.

      The media payoffs to the Palins started with Beefy before Sarah quit.

      That's the big story that no one can tell or be a source for the story. There's not enough loyalty to keep those sources anonymous. Once Sarah screws the pooch and can no longer bring anyone down by telling her story, they will either cut out her tongue, or make her go away. She's a rogue with an inflated sense of self-importance, so she will kill this golden goose, if Todd himself doesn't do it by trying to fuck the goose rather than Sarah. That's a metaphor, if you're wondering, but Todd might be the sacrificial lamb. Another metaphor. gtg

    Even knowing what she was, Schmidt still did everything in his power to give the crooked old whore a free ride to the White House. He should be in jail not on television.

    1. Anonymous11:23 AM

      They knew the ship was sinking during the election - Schmidt was disgusted w/Palin after finding out how ignorant and off balance she was during the campaign. Plus, she put herself ABOVE McCain at the end of the campaign and was driving herself and everyone else nuts.

      Thank God American voters saw how inept she was and how awful McCain would have been as POTUS.

      Thank God, President Obama and VP Biden were elected over them and that they obtained the second term with such big numbers! The Republicans are STILL pissed off and continue looking like the messed party they have been for a number of years now!

      Sarah Palin, McCain, Romney et al just make them look and sound worse as time moves on!

      Schmidt didn't 'choose Sarah'. He didn't have a say in the natter. He played the cards that were pulled out of the deck and handed to him, and wasn't happy at all. But McCain was in the same position. He didn't want Sarah either. It's a facade that was put in the Game Change narrative, because the American people would revolt if they knew how few people choose these candidates and back them based on past and future deals. I hate to say it, but both the Dem & GOP candidates are chosen by the same people behind the curtain for the most part, because they can't afford to lose. So they bet on both sides. Some more than others, but all the players hedge, and it's obvious where the differing interests are. But 60% win either way. It's only a gamble for those who bet on the longer shot for the higher payoff--- the wildcatters. Big, old money wants a guaranteed 18-20% return on tgeir assets and the tax loopholes do the rest for them, allowing them to double their net worth every 5 years or do with essentially only cyclical risk. Rogues exist, but they are boom or bust. Look at the Forbes 500 richest people in 1980, 1990, 2000, and every year since. See the movement and those "popping up". No one goes backwards in terms of net worth except a few entrepreneurs who didn't cash out quickly enough during the tech bubble (gambling, basically), or someone who was floating on air of leverage, and got too greedy. The handful of companies that own the media can shut anyone out. So you don't have much investigative reporting on themselves. Why would they? Rupert's people got sloppy and he lost control and took some lumps. When the old man dies, we may find out a few things interesting as his son gets his head in a vise. But I'm betting James cashes out and new players gain a little ground. I've said too much, but nothing that's not in plain view for those looking at the right combination of things that matter. Sorry I don't have time to edit and do paragraphs. It's a stream of consciousness thing anyway, not a chronology of events. Palin is chump change. Schmidt is a company man. McCain is an old war horse that's been put out to pasture, fighting every step of the way. But he's always done as he's been told. Theses people aren't crazy. They act very rational based on their circumstances, which are controlled by others. The theater is for attention, deflection, or deception. You can assume those who benefit politically are acting in a rational manner and doing as told. Some are better actors and stay in the game while others wash out. That's all for now.

    Oy vey in a handbasket. Someone named steveschmidtUSA and using his pic has been commenting at the Kiddie Pool and some other sites, just saying "No! No! No! and NO!" Of course, some of the inmates are trying to convince themselves that Schmidt would actually waste his time at the Sarah Palin Tiger Beat Fan Club, much less comment there. There's even a long, "concerned" diatribe from that VA guy to "Steve" as follows (these paragraphs appear at the end):

    "Steve, your reputation is now one of being a loser, a backstabber, a vainglorious king maker, but one who cannot make a king. A FAILURE.

    "Is that how you want to be remembered?

    "When you appear on tv, it is almost always on networks who are quite open in their support, and indeed, admiration, of Obama and his socialist policies. I fail to understand why you allow yourself to be used as a tool by those folks, unless of course, the reputation you have built is true and you are nothing more then a tool, and, a fool.

    "Do you want to take this opportunity to cogently have an honest dialogue with Sarah Palin supporters, factually back up your statements about her, perhaps express a change of heart?

    "Here's your chance, Steve."

    Does VA honestly think a). it's Schmidt, and 2). calling him everything short of a worthless piece of mildewed rat excrement is going coax a positive, worshipful response to the Queen and her minions? It's in today's Open Thread. Enjoy!

      The Faithful over at C4P are jumping ship and now hanging out at Palin4America, mainly because that blog still employs the old Disqus commenting software that does not allow for "up or down-arrowing" of comments. They consider this their safe haven now because no one can down arrow their comments.

      None of them realizes this is a temporary condition because Disqus is requiring all users to upgrade to their new software, the one that allows for up and down-arrowing, by mid month and the current version will become defunct at the end of the month.

      So it looks like the P People will soon have no choice but to live in a world of up and down arrows whether they like it or not! Of course, as they all state, the down arrows don't bother them one bit and they wear them as a badge of honor....yeah, sure they do :-)

    Schmidt's not the only one speaking out right now:

    President George W. Bush’s former chief strategist Matthew Down is slamming the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for snubbing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) while inviting former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who he asserts “wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract.”

    So the media -- and even members of the GOP -- are FINALLY telling the truth about Sarah Palin ???

    If only they'd started doing it back in 2008.

      Sarah was NOT vetted and Schmidt discovered too late what a horrible mistake the GOP had made re: selecting Palin as McCant's running mate. I think he is trying to rectify a wrong by coming clean now.

      Sarah Palin WAS vetted, and saying "No" to a bunch of questions is NOT coming clean.

    Actual ADN headline:

    "Cheese war: State dumps tons of cheddar from defunct Mat-Su dairy"

    "We thought the cheese that was stored in the cooler inside, that a good portion of that would be acceptable. But after looking closer we found mouse droppings around and on the cheese, cheese where mice had burrowed into the cheese.”

    Dairy board member and investor Jake Libby calls McFarland's description of the cheese "complete and utter BS."

    “CPAC to me has totally diminished its credibility as an organization. When you basically, Chris Christie s a national leader, and their explanation about why, the next day about why…It’s like an All Star Game, they said he didn’t have a good year,” said Matthew Dowd, a frequent This Week panelist and Republican strategist.

    “They invite Sarah Palin who wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract? But she’s invited to a CPAC meeting? I mean to me, they basically, many people, Karl and many people, decided that the voters out there don’t know what they’re doing. That the votes who like Chris Christie, and the voters who like other candidates, they’re really mixed up and we’re going to tell them what the truth is. And whatever that’s a strategy on either side, when you’re trying to tell the voters they’re wrong, it’s a bad move,” said Dowd.

    Former Utah Congressional candidate Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love halfheartedly defended CPAC saying that they’re a private organization and that Christie probably isn’t hurting for speaking events. Love did call for a “healthy debate” between Republicans.

    Carville got the last laugh, of course, saying,”Any day that you have more Sarah Palin and less Chris Christie is a good day for James Carville.”

      Ummhh no Palin worshiper I don't think those are down arrows you hear speaking.
      After perusing the comments I'd say ithat would be Satan whispering back and forth in their ears.
      The StLouisSioux poster especially sounds like a nightmare to have as a neighbor or acquaintance, it is also scary that they all carry guns.
      VG was boasting of carrying one strapped to his leg to a hospital visit, just a few days after the Sandy Hook shooting, he said he was pleasantly surprised that nobody said anything negative, what an abysmal idiot that old bigot is!
      I wouldn't say anything either, you never know what might set those gun fondlers off! What an arrogant evil thing to do, right after the Sandy shooting..these pieces of shit are the type of people that Palin drew out.
