During lengthy and informative New York Magazine interview President Obama connected the dots between Sarah Palin and the Trump campaign.

Palin "Just let me touch him." Lieberman: "Oh hell no."
Courtesy of New York Magazine:  

I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party. Whether that changes, I think, will depend in part on the outcome of this election, but it’s also going to depend on the degree of self-reflection inside the Republican Party. There have been at least a couple of other times that I’ve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse.

As you all know I, and a lot of other political observers, have already made the argument that without Sarah Palin there would likely never have been a Doanld Trump campaign.

But here is the President, who arguably has far more insight into the inner workings of politics in this country than most of us, essentially pointing out that same connection.

What is more is that earlier in the interview he explains he first noticed the Sarah Palin effect on the Republican party. And it came right after Chicago had lost the bid to host the 2016 Olympics:

On the flight back, we already know that we haven’t got it, and when I land it turns out that there was big cheering by Rush Limbaugh and various Republican factions that America had lost the Olympic bid. It was really strange, but at that point, Limbaugh had been much clearer about wanting to see me fail and had, I think, communicated that very clearly to his listeners. Fox News’ coverage had already started to drift in that direction, and what you realized during the course of the first six, eight, ten months of the administration was that the attitudes, the moods that I think Sarah Palin had captured during the election increasingly were representative of the Republican activist base, its core. It might not have been representative of Republicans across the country, but it meant that John Boehner or Mitch McConnell had to worry about that mood inside their party that felt that, No, we shouldn’t cooperate with Obama, we shouldn’t cooperate with Democrats; that it represents compromise, weakness, and that the broader character of America is at stake, regardless of whatever policy arguments might be made. As a consequence, there were times that I would meet with Mitch McConnell and he would say to me very bluntly, “Look, I’m doing you a favor if I do any deal with you, so it should be entirely on my terms because it hurts me just being seen photographed with you.” 

Essentially Sarah Palin made it okay for the most rabid Right Wing to come out of the woodwork and make themselves heard, and to push a partisan agenda that despised compromise and punished any who did not pass their ideological purity tests.

This not only created huge obstacles for President Obama and his administration, but it made Congress almost completely ineffectual as well.

Essentially Washington D.C. ground to a complete halt, and arguably that was in part inspired by one batshit crazy half term governor from the wilds of Wasilla.

I have been making this point for years partially as a defense for why I kept writing about Palin and digging into her secretes, and now the President has essentially vindicated that work by reinforcing just how damaging she was to national politics in this country.

And I continue to make the case that if the media had done its job, and gone after Palin over her faux political creds, her fake pregnancy, and her many scandals since she left office, that we would never have ended up with a Donald Trump as the GOP candidate in 2016.

I have done everything that I could to get these stories out there, but too many mainstream media sources wanted to turn a blind eye, and now they are left slack jawed at the result.

P.S. By the way the rest of the article is very informative and I urge all of you to read it.

      Her son is a combat vet. That had a great deal to do with why McCain wanted her and her military family. Yes, McCain should be credited for her making it to the Republican ticket. She would not have been anything but a governor if it was not for Senator McCain.

  2. O/T -- Saw this comment on DailyKos re Trumps Non-Disclosure Agreements (and why more people are not coming forward against Trump's ill use of them:


    chrismorgan txdoubledd Oct 02 · 03:29:00 PM

    These NDAs are not unenforceable under current circumstance bc Hair Furor is running for POTUS and political speech, which such comments would be now, are absolutely protected under the 1st A.

    The only thing they do is allow fear of litigation costs to deter exercise of those rights. And thus are doubly unenforceable. The HRC campaign should simply agree to pay all legal fees in defense of any action by Drumpf to enforce it if these people come forward on these specific issues. When Drumpf goes ballistic, they simply reply: “We will not allow a billionaire to use his money to bully people into silence.”

We want our pound of flesh, a stake through that ugly, blackened heart, her ashes stomped into the ground and spit on. I would love to see her utterly and completely humiliated and forever destroyed, not because she is relevant or powerful, but just to metaphorically drive the final nail into her political coffin.

  9. Excellent post. You have done a stirling job (over many, many years) of keeping Palin's wretched, regressive, mean influence in the forefront; that the media hadn't the balls to do so will continue to be laid at their feet.

    And, I have to blame brilliant blogger Andrew Sullivan, (The Daily Dish) whose sanity and British reasonableness and critical thinking forbade him understanding the depth of her appeal & sheer doggedness.

    He dropped his courageous anti-Palin posts must too early, saying, oh, the American people will see through her in no time; they can't be that dumb...
    (I did try, several times, to explain right-wing, religious Christianist Americans to him, but obviously didn't do it well enough. Sorry.)

    Oh yes they can be that dumb and now we have another (even worse, possibly) sociopath much too close to the Presidency. Will the media learn their lesson? or is this latest NYTimes story about T's taxes too little, too late?

    Thank God Palin no longer has any influence anywhere within our country! The same thing is going to happen to Trump. Plus, he has dealt many blows to his businesses due to running for POTUS. He is going to lose business and have the feds after him for his illegal dealings. It's going to be fun to watch!

      She has always demanded respect from those she considers her 'underlings' but saw not a hint of irony in placing herself on a same level, first-name basis with those positioned well above her. As if being a part-term guv of a state with under 700,000 residents somehow instantly elevated her on a par with every other elected official who had proven themselves worthy as respectable public servants. She even thought her presumed respect and 'gravitas' should follow her after Daddy McPain lost his election and she became just another average citizen out of about 300 million. In her case, she was just upgraded from virtually unknown to loser.

      There is, nor ever was, an IT factor. A reckless choice from some very stupid men that took a cruise to Alaska to watch her shake her wares. Ask Bill Kristol what he thinks of her now, and it is ALL on her and her stupid family for perpetuating the lie thinking that they would never be found out.

  30. That right winged unhinged bunch was always there, but they were in the background, just sorta of like a hum of fan, there but not enough to be annoying. Of course SP changed that, she legitimized their blatant racism and conspiracy dreams. She gave them purpose and they gave her their allegiance.

    I think the real plot twist in all of this was how the GOP reacted to the sudden influx of the Tea Party and all their hateful rhetoric. McConnel and Boehner both suddenly sat up and saw the damn monster they invited to the party when they started catering to the party of SP. I don't think they ever once thought about losing votes to the Dems, I really don't, I think their worry has been what we're witnessing now, a possible serious third party bid for office. They knew damn well the party was going to fracture if they lost that particular voting block, and now they're paying for dangling that carrot to the crazies.

  35. As an example, we have heard from Trump that Heidi Klum is sadly no longer a ten. Notice how many times Trump has been seen with Lou Sarah since her twenty minute endorsement. Two times? This has got to seriously hurt Sarah in that she expected to be in Gouhliani and Christies spots along side Trump at rallies across the country. Does he return her calls? Her absence is telling. Perhaps it is sadly apparent to Trump, Sarah is no longer a six! (Remember how far from the "beautiful Trumps" Sarah and Willow were seated during the only campaign rally she was featured?) Her complete absence from the campaign has got to hurt deeply.

    Sarah Palin is probably puffed up with pride by this, but she was just the accidental expression of the racist, no-nothing GOP trend that had been building up since 1968 -- exemplified perfectly by Lee Atwater. As Game Change showed, the McCain people picked her by mistake, and then they couldn't put the genie back in the bottle. She stirred up the ugliness that had been waiting to flower -- and, with the internet and cable news, it found a ripe and fertile ground in which to flourish since 2008.

    So Palin was just the beginning, and, after she left any sphere of real influence in November, 2008, the ugliness continued to grow, helped to a large degree by the hatred of President Obama's skin color. A large portion of Trump's supporters, all the Tea Party goons and their descendants, are simply angry -- furious -- racists who can't believe that a black man (half-black!) succeeded to the White House where their sorry asses failed.

    The Palin/Trump phenomenon is but a symptom of the anti-intellectualism movement that has been brewing in America since the Reagan era.

    George W's two terms were just the beginning of this new era of stupid, uneducated and politically ignorant people thinking that they should have a voice, because really, they just vote for the guy or gal they want to have a beer with.

    The mass availability of smart phones and the internet hasn't helped since it's given a voice to those who previously would have had to figure out how to write a letter to the editor of their local paper in order to express their thoughts, even if it was only viewed by their limited local readership.

    Now they Facebook, Tweet and Instagram their moronic political ramblings to a wider audience and instead of being relegated to the shadows, as they should be because they are dumb and have little to add to the conversation, they've been given a voice and believe that they are somehow relevant.

    And guess what, we can't go back now, every idiot on the face of the planet has a smart phone and an internet connection and they are driving this political car right off the cliff into the void of their ignorance.
