Sarah Palin applauds newly elected Senator's guts after he suggests doing away with the Senate. Did I mention he is a newly elected Senator?

'Now that's guts! I also admire electricians who want to do away with electricity."
Courtesy of Glacier Gidget's Facebook page:  

This is why we respect this guy... his guts and gumption in expressing what many Americans recognize as a foundational problem resulting in an insolvent, less sovereign nation - and his commitment to taking action. 

I appreciate him taking responsibility " blow the whistle on these problems so Americans are aware of them." 

Thank you, Senator Ben Sasse. 

Now your first instinct after reading that Sarah Palin is impressed with somebody, should be "Oh what stupid thing did this Sasse guy do to deserve that?"

And if it was you have good instincts.

Palin's Facebook page then links to an article on the defunct Breitbart news site, and as it turns out THIS is what Ben "Soon to be out of a job" Sasse said during his maiden speech on the floor of the Senate:  

If the Senate isn’t going to be the most important venue for addressing our biggest national problems, where is that venue? Where should the people look for the long-term national prioritization? Or, to ask it of ourselves, would anything be lost if the Senate didn’t exist? Again, this a thought experiment, so let me be emphatically clear: I think a great deal would be lost if the federal government didn’t have a Senate, but game out with me the question of ‘Why?’ What precisely would be lost if we had only a House of Representatives, rather than both bodies? The growth of the administrative state, the fourth branch of government, is increasingly hollowing out the Article I branch, the legislature, and many in Congress have been complicit in this hollowing out of our own powers. So would anything really be lost if we doubled-down on Woodrow Wilson’s impulses and inclinations toward administrative efficiency by removing much of the clunky-ness of legislative process?

Now Ben Sasse is a former university president and has a Master's degree in Philosophy, so you would think he might know better than to introduce a topic as easily misrepresented as this one.

First he expects folks like Sarah Palin to understand what a "thought experiment" is when they really do not understand the concept of "thinking."

Second he is essentially attacking the very institution that he campaigned long and hard to join, which is never a good thing.

And thirdly, WTF is his point really?

Does he really think that the Congress, now overrun with moronic teabaggers, should be allowed to run amok without the checks and balances provided by the Senate?

What am I saying, this is a guy endorsed by Sarah Palin, of course he wants the government to fail.

I don't know what I was I thinking.

By the way Salon has decided that Palin would be a shoo-in as moderator of the GOP debates:   

Sarah Palin – This one seems so obvious I have to think someone has suggested it already. Palin’s proclivity for speaking in word salad that even the most powerful Star Trek universal translator likely couldn’t make sense of is well known. Anything she says would likely be a stream of babble that would trail off into nothing, leaving the candidates free to just opine about whatever talking points they would have spouted even if asked a coherent question.

They have a point.  If you wanted somebody who would not challenge the candidates with facts, or embarrass them by demonstrating a superior intellect, Sarah Palin would be the obvious choice.

God could you just imagine?

Two hours of Sarah Palin asking ignorant questions and the candidates trying to make sense of them, or just giving up and proselytizing to the flock instead? It would the TV equivalent of receiving a colonoscopy from a doctor who just found out you were banging his wife.

      If Sarah were to moderate one of the debates, Chris Christie would probably tell her to shut the fuck up and go make him a sandwich.

  2. Olivia9:55 AM

    Sarah Palin could not ask questions for 2 hours. She doesn't know enough to be able to string words together to make any kind of sentence, coherent or not, for that length of time. It addition, there is no way she could talk that long without swinging every topic around to be about her and what a victim she is and how badly the press treats her and her family and whine, whine, whine.

    1. Anonymous7:51 PM

      She wouldn't be able to formulate any questions that weren't about her, by the time she finished asking "her question", there wouldn't be any time left for the candidate to get a word in edgewise.

    OT... When are the multitudes of politicians going to appoligize for using that now we know crooked cops suicide as an example that police deaths are Obama's fault.

    Fox wouldn't even air the press conference this morning because they made the same statement on was Obama's fault.

    Along with so many crickets.

  4. Sasse didn't have it quite right when he called his word porridge a "thought experiment."

    It was more of a "experimenting with the concept of thinking" moment.

    What a fucking moron. There is no other way to put it. I guess no one has read the Constitution over at the Palin household. Funny because Sarah is always going on and on and on about the Constitution. She continues to try to lecture all of us on what the Constitution means (i.e. Constitutional Conservatives, etc....).

    But we all knew she has not read one word of the Constitution. Sarah would not know the Preamble or the Articles of the Constitution if they bite her in the ass.

    The ignorance is strong with that one.

    And that is why Sarah sits in Wasilla. No one wants Ignorance on the campaign stump with them.

      Democrats Use The Media To Hammer Paul Ryan’s Pathetic Attempt to Blame Obama

      The House Democratic Leader’s press office (that’s Nancy Pelosi, don’t think of her too much lest you cry for the days when she was in charge and got things done) is hammering new Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his pathetic game of already blaming President Obama for his own upcoming failures.

      Just in case you missed it in his Sunday show appearances or first presser, Ryan penned an Op-Ed for USA Today in which he again blamed President Obama for Republicans refusing to take up immigration reform for the next several years, writing, “The House of Representatives will not vote on comprehensive immigration legislation as long as President Obama is in office.” That will show Obama! Neener-neener.

    Palin is not as dumb as she acts and looks, or at least her handlers are: Each state has 2 Senators; all voters in the state cast ballots for them. Thus Senate members are less likely to be 199% wack jobs. However, House of Reps districts can be gerrymandered. They do it in such a way that the state will have more rethugs in the house than dems despite more Dems in the State and more Dems voting. This is the biggest reason for gridlock. Of course vote flipping works pretty well, too!

      She is actually dumber than she acts or looks. All she does is read daily directives from her wealthy mentors and tosses them in her word salad bowl.

      I've said it before: go on-line and take a look at the interview she and Janet Napolitano did with Charlie Rose, back before Palin was picked as VP. Napolitano is a smart cookie.

    Obama Refuses TransCanada Request to Suspend Keystone XL Pipeline Approval

    ...The foreign corporation TransCanada, Republicans, and the Koch brothers are resorting to what environmentalists are rightly calling “a desperate delay tactic to prevent President Obama from following through on his pledge.” It is glaringly apparent that the axis of mendacity, the Kochs, Republicans, and TransCanada, are terrified of this President and now likely comprehend that challenging his resolve or expecting him to concede to big oil is a very stupid move. They are hoping the next president is going to do what President Obama has already demonstrated he will never do; choose oil industry profits over the health, safety, and welfare of current and future generations of human beings the world over. As if to punctuate that point, the White House has announced that despite TransCanada’s request, the President will not “yield to big oil” to delay his decision on Keystone XL, and that he will make the final decision before he leaves office.

    Sasse has had more jobs than Bristol's had boyfriends; climbing the ladder of contacts and networking until he reached the U.S. Senate.

    He comes from Nebraska, the only state with a unicameral legislature, so that's where his idea comes from. It's a recipe for dictatorship, if Nebraska were worth worrying about.
    He's smart -- watch out for him -- but he's slippery. You'll see him behind a lectern when the 2020 GOP clown car gets in gear. He thinks he's "sassy" but it's pronounced "sass."

    I noticed that Nancy French mentions Bristol's brother, Track Palin, again. He would like to tie up some stalkers for the family.

    I know Track was far gone and out of it when Sarah left the PTSD meeting in Houston and took him and the family on a drunken birthday bash in Anchorage for Todd. They keep him on the down low and they found a pharmacy tech to monitor his substance abuse. If what we've heard about Waikiki is half true, she failed the family. It is no wonder Sarah took her freedom and had her shut down her social media accounts after the drunken Willow post.

    The rumors about Track being Black Ops are alive and well with Sarah and her friends. Now is Sarah planning on bringing him back into her sphere since Bristol has been such a major disappointment, being the bastard making machine she is? Sarah can't even mention their reality, the fact she is to be a grandmother, she can only continue to use Bristol for the propaganda that the French family helps her with.

    All Sarah needs to do is replace her disappointment with her combat vet hero?

    There is no way that Track was both in Iraq and surfing Waikiki at the same time. Up Alaska way they are allowing Bristol to get away with her lies about work and her knock up.

    Will Alaska allow Sarah to pose Track as what he is not now?

    It was once illegal to lie about your service or pose as what you are not when you claim you are a war hero and such. Doing it for personal gain is damn sick.

    Chris Christie is being praised for his viral speech on drug addiction. The first step is admitting your problem. Sarah Palin is evil to hide her family secrets since it is deadly. She would actually deceive her followers for more money and fame while her own child is going down the wrong path?

    It is high time the fine people of Alaska and the USA put a stop to the con game. Far too many people are dying and doing serious harm to the lives of others due to people like Palin. She needs to start being relevant about drugs and what they are doing to our country.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sarah threatened Track with calling the police or cutting him off, financially if he didn't sign up with a private contractor in the Middle East. Or maybe he's just hiding out in the garage.

      I hate to say it, but Sarah would love for Track to get injured or worse so she can play the concerned or mourning mother of a "combat vet" (yeah right).
