Happy Birthday to my new son-in-law, Dakota Meyer! So glad to have him in our lives... his work ethic, patriotism, humor, smarts, & sincere love of God, country & family are so admirable. 🇺🇸👍 -
Sarah Palin (Let the mother-in-law jokes begin!)
And let me tell you right now, Dakota is VERY important to the Palins at this moment.
Not only is he their last chance at credibility, but he is also bankrolling Bristol's attempts to shut me up.
Gee, I wonder how much money he has to spend on this? (Hint. It's not going to be enough.)
In other news apparently the Grizzled Mama made her appearance at that Politicon event today.
Here she is walking onto the stage.
According to Truthdig the title of her presentation was “Your Garden Variety Everyday Pissed Off American.”
Classy don't you think?
Here's a little more from Truthdig:
After setting the scene with an I-told-you-so critique of the Obama presidency, Palin said, “We knew the only counter to this was a revolution. But who would be the revolutionary? Instead of letting the media vet candidates for us, we asked who is not part of the problem?”
Enter Trump, said Palin, with his “earned income that is due respect,” and “who has has nothing to lose but knows that our very sovereignty is to gain,” and, most fancifully, who is “not palling around with crony capitalists, in bed with special interests ... screwing the American worker.”
Not that there’s anything wrong with capitalism. The former Alaska governor was quick to cast Trump in the unlikely position of the “outsider” billionaire, who has amassed great wealth but remains close to the earth.
“Trump is a builder—he looks up and he builds big!” Palin said, echoing a familiar right-wing refrain about job creation and self-propelled, meritocratic success. “He knows that men in denim built this country,” she added, “but D.C. suits—and pantsuits—destroy it.”
Pantsuits, yeah we get it. Cute.
Truthdig summed up her appearance thusly:Lovely @SarahPalinUSA was across from us signing today we had her sign a few things too! 🇺🇸🙌🏼❤️ #Politicon2016 pic.twitter.com/h3nooLbKaf— Decision 2016 Cards (@decision16cards) June 26, 2016
Overall, Palin’s speech was an unsurprising pastiche patched together from her trove of greatest-hits causes, catchphrases and all the zingers fit to print on her teleprompter. Trump couldn’t ask for a better spokesperson, and from reading Palin’s clear signals since the launch of his campaign, she could well be eyeing the White House herself—this time as a member of the Trump administration.
Wait, did that say teleprompter? Oooh, so busted!
And no damn way is this lunatic getting anywhere near the White House.
We are going to make goddamn sure of that, just like we did last time!
