Palinism of the Day: The Free Speech I Despise

“The liberal onslaught of malicious attacks against Carrie Prejean for expressing her opinion is despicable.”

— Sarah Palin, May 13 2009

Parse that thought if you can. These “malicious attacks” aren’t pipe bombings; they’re commentaries. What’s a synonym for “expressing your opinion?”

‘Course, I fully support Sarah Palin’s right to make an ass of herself. […]

Sarah Palin: Tweet?

Are Americans really just chomping at the bit for Sarah Palin to run for President in 2012? Not if you go by our short-form writing forum Twitter. Searches for tweets featuring the phrase “Palin for President” bring up just 14 results during the past seven days… and only 6 of those are actually positive comments […]

Palin Prude Patrol Packs Puny Punch. Tee hee.

It is to laugh.

Sarah Palin’s posse is apoplectic that Kathleen Sebelius, nominee for Health and Human Services Secretary, is a supporter of women’s right to an abortion. It’s understandable that to Palin Republicans, the idea of cabinet officials supporting legal activities would be unacceptable. I mean, look what they got used to over the […]

Sarah Palin Says Republican Leaders Not Religious Enough For Her Prayer Circle

Poor Sarah Palin. It’s hard enough going on a RNC-paid shopping spree for designer clothes at Saks while the economy tanks. All those hands on you, fitting, fitting, fitting!

Liberal Humorists for Sarah Palin in 2012

I miss Sarah Palin already. I’ll always cherish the happy moments. The warm grins over the repeated use of the word “also” to end a sentence, the special feeling we all got from discovering another connection to witch hunters, the secret hope that Sarah Palin might donate part of her $150,000 wardrobe to a goodwill […]

Palinism of the Day: Mine, Baby, Mine!

“Mine, baby, mine!”

— Sarah Palin, Canton Ohio, November 2 2008

That about says it all.

Four Days, Four Syllables: Sum Up Sarah Palin

We have four days, just four days, until the next presidential ticket is elected. It’s been a colorful election season, in no small part thanks to Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska.

In recognition of the brief time until the next election, can you briefly sum up Sarah Palin in just four syllables?

Sarah Palin Gets It Right with her Old Boys Line

“Whatever the good ol’ boys are running these days, I know it’s not the state of Alaska!” — Sarah Palin, October 29, 2008

Sarah Palin has that right. She’s not an old boy. She’s got girl parts. As for the corruption part? Well, she’s got that covered:

Gov. Sarah Palin’s signature accomplishment — a contract […]

Another McCain Staffer Says Sarah Palin Is Unfit to be President

At least that’s how I interpret it when the campaign aide to John McCain rolls out the phrase “whack job.”

McCain Staffers Argue Against Sarah Palin's Fitness to be President

There was a lot of journalistic chatter this past weekend about comments by leaders of the McCain-Palin campaign in which they referred to Sarah Palin as a “rogue” and a “diva,” but most of that talk was focused on the implication of infighting within the Republican presidential campaign. That sort of processual story may be […]

Palinism of the Day: A Son Named Zamboni

“I always wanted a son named Zamboni.”

— Sarah Palin, October 2008
