Great Campaign Commercial VIDEO: Sarah Palin’s Possible Run for Prez

By Debbie Schlussel

I don’t know if Sarah Palin is actually so deluded that she believes she would actually be elected President against Barack Obama.  But she has nothing to lose because she’s already made millions and if she runs and gets trounced, she will make millions more thereafter, even if she’s a proven loser in addition to be a proven quitter.  That conventional wisdom about the birthrate of suckers is conservative.  As Palin’s millions in book sales and fans shows, it’s far more than the claimed one per minute.  I doubt these numbers will mean a thing to the people who fall for this empress with no clothing, but they say it all to anyone who really wants Barack Obama defeated:

A Palin confidant said he is 95% certain she won’t run. Ms. Palin’s image among the broader public has dimmed in recent months, polls show.

The April Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 25% view her favorably, while 53% view her unfavorably. Only 9% felt very positively toward her, a low in Journal polling, while 41% viewed her very negatively, a new high.

Ms. Palin still places in the top tier when GOP voters are asked their choice for president. She was second, at 15%, in a Gallup survey of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents released Thursday, trailing only Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, with 17%.

Gallup said Ms. Palin was the top choice among voters most concerned about social and moral issues, while Mr. Romney’s support was more broad-based, including a larger share of voters concerned with government spending and the economy.

Still, the confidant of Ms. Palin said she doesn’t want the negative scrutiny that would come from a run, and she doesn’t want to jeopardize the lucrative speaking, broadcasting and book-writing career that has followed her unsuccessful run for the vice presidency.

Ms. Palin is a contributor to Fox News Channel, which ended its contracts with several other Republicans when they began to campaign for the White House. “We are not changing Sarah Palin’s status,” said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming for Fox News, on Thursday. Fox and The Wall Street Journal are owned by News Corp.

No dolla, no holla. That’s the Palin family theme song. And if you think she’s truly a conservative, you’re easily fooled. I love how the family values crowd (with which I identify) thinks this self-promoting feminist–who abandoned her family to run for office, endlessly promotes, glamorizes, and farms out her baby mama daughter to lucrative reality TV shows–somehow represents “family values.” Uh-huh, halfway between Osborne and Sheen family values (with the Osborne Family–yup, Ozzy–showing more conservative family values than the Palins).

Her daughter is a high school dropout without any discernible talent. If Bristol did not have Mother Sarah as a stepladder, she would be in public housing receiving food stamps this very moment. She is an AFDC poster child from beginning to end. Being stuffed with unearned income is the only difference between her and her less famous sisters who have to live off of welfare.

DS, watch your going to see all of the Palin shill-hacks rush to their keyboards and visit this site and start calling you a “hater”, a this, a that, etc., etc., when they DON’T realize is that your refuting the facts about their girl (Sarah Palin) on what exactly she stands for. Their not going to read the whole article word for word, instead the Palin hacks are going to demagoguge about this article, there no different than Obama supporters (I’m talking about the fanatics).

Truth is is that Palin stands for affirmative action, bid for John McCain last year against JD Hayworth (who was the real conservative) and hasn’t said anything about illegal-immigration, the threat of islam, how she’ll improve our economy (the meltdown of the economy started under Bush NOT Obama), etc. If the GOP nominate her for the presidency against Obama, then it’ll be another 4 years of Obama and I’m not looking forward for another 4 years of Obama to be honest with all of you!

SR: Yup, they are soooooo damned predictable, those Palinbots. DS

Genius. Let’s beat up on Sarah Palin. I’d much rather have a Marxist Jew-hating Kenyan as president.

N: Genius. “Please don’t tell the truth about Sarahmessiah. I’d much rather have a moron who will make sure Obama is re-elected to a second term than a person who is actually a real conservative and has a working brain.” People like you brought us 8 years of a GOP Islamo-panderer in the White House, who actively brought in tens of thousands of Muslim illegal aliens. But, hey, you keep pining over your moron. If you don’t demand more than “anybody but Obama,” you will never get more than just a hair better. Sorry, but you set your standards way too low. Remember, Bush’s position on the “pre-67 borders” and the settlements was exactly the same as Obama’s. And he did more to bring in and pander to Muslims in the U.S. than Obama. And he was smarter than Palin. DS

Debbie, you are correct, they are so damn predicatle it’s not even funny. I know in the past that you’ve written numerous articles of Palin and you refuted the whole facts about this lady and all of the Palin-flacks (Palinmessiah as you call them DS) come onto this website and shill for her and debunk what you what you wrote about Sarah Palin.

Debbie, I also remember when I read your archives, a few years ago some of the Palin-hacks emailed you death threats and said all sorts of vile and obscene messages to you in your email inbox. It was disgusting and pathetic of those Palin hacks doing that to you, what they wrote to you in your email inbox are no different than some of the muslim sleeper cells (I’m assuming that) who emailed you those disgusting death threats (sending people death threats is NO LONGER about freedom of speech, it is ILLEGAL to incite violence against anybody in this country).

Conservatives love Sarah Palin because she is serious about limiting government. She may not be perfect, but she has my vote. Show me someone who’s more sincere about putting chains back on our out-of-control government.

David Lanham on May 27, 2011 at 4:54 pm

If Palin was the Republican nominee, I would compare that to taking a cheerleader and making her the starting quarterback on the football team. NOT a good idea.

David on May 27, 2011 at 4:59 pm

So, who else is going to limit the government?

David Lanham on May 27, 2011 at 6:10 pm

The Video was paid for by B. Hussain Oboma?
Debbie I’m unimpressed with your commentary on Sarah as a quitter and her unsuccessful run for VeeP.
The Vice Governor was ready willing and able to take over for Sarah who was hammered so badly by those who fear her influence on the good ole boy regime in politics.
Sarah was Selected by the Hero of Zero because on his own he was not electable. That was the edge He needed to go up there and State he is not going to run an Attack Campaign. McCain said. “There is nothing wrong with oboma, Oboma is a fine man a good man we have nothing to fear from an oboma presidency.” McCain failed to fight for the position, and did a better job of promoting the Kenyan that the democrats could have done. however McCain felt the nomination was owed him, yet McCain threatened to leave the republicans in 2000 when he was not selected as a republican nominee. All that would have meant was, he take the elephant icon after his name and place a Jackass. McCain sought to eliminate the attacks on Oboma but not one peep on the attacks on Sarah Palin. People love Sarah because she is Christian and she has a history of going after those in government who are wasting the Tax payers money.
Sarah did not fail to win hearts and minds of Americans many of whom would vote for her. Personally I want Rep Allen West (R) Florida. But Sarah deserves more respect than your providing.

Her 2nd eldest daughter is now the same age Bristol was when she got knocked up. For the sake of the children, I sincerely hope it doesn’t happen, but if within the next couple of years, this woman finds herself with a 2nd grandchild, I AM going to point at her and laugh.

Irving on May 27, 2011 at 6:34 pm

And just watch! She is suddenly going to thrust her youngest child into the limelight again just like she did when she ran for VP. The $arah who did nothing to advocate for special needs parents, volunteer for Special Olympics or talk about parenting for a child with Down’s Syndrome (except for $$, a time or 2 on a magazine cover).

I am not saying she does not love her kid.
I am a special-needs (SN) mom also and don’t minimize anyone’s experiences raising a SN child

Lee in IL on May 27, 2011 at 8:46 pm

Debbie, Would you mind to please provide the evidence you’ve compiled that Sarah Palin is anything less than a superwoman. I try to avoid judging people without first walking a mile in their shoes. I also don’t like to cannibalize my own, and she’s a lot like you politically, beside maybe a couple of things, that I’d like to see you specify, if you can. Thanks, and have a good Shabbos.

In a speech, like the one at the GOP convention in 08, she sounds like a winner. In an interview, when you really see what goes on in her head, she’s a disaster. And I don’t just mean interviews with hostile liberals, I mean friendlies like “In-Sean-mia” Hannity, el al. Even when she makes sound, conservative observations she grates on me like fingernails on a blackboard.

CornCoLeo on May 27, 2011 at 11:38 pm

I still haven’t heard one suggestion from the Palin-haters who would be a better choice. You have Ron Paul or Sarah Palin. All the rest are loyal to the Republican party and they don’t give a darn about the country.

David Lanham on May 28, 2011 at 12:15 am

    David Lanham sez:

    “I still haven’t heard one suggestion from the Palin-haters who would be a better choice. You have Ron Paul or Sarah Palin. All the rest are loyal to the Republican party and they don’t give a darn about the country.”

    Oh please! Ron Paul can’t even be consistent on illegal immigration. I did a search of his legislative history, and he’s not even good on illegals anymore.

    As for Palin, she is loyal to Palin. She can’t even stick out a term of office when the money points elsewhere. And as for her policy preferences, Debbie has shown time and again that she’s no conservative. Yes, in some ways, she is indeed more conservative than Hussein. That is no qualification. And really, while Palin made a great first impression, we have long known that she is not smart enough to be a effective conservative even if here policy preferences were conservative.

    I’d even choose Mit over her, and I am most definitely not a fan of Mit.

“a person who is actually a real conservative and has a working brain.”

I also would love to know who you think will sway voters away from Obama and win the election.

Do you think the people who support Obama will suddenly think,”Hey,here’s a conservative with a working brain,let’s vote for him”?
I doubt it.
Obama has such strong image support in the media from everyone from Jon Stewart to Fareed Zakaria to Newsweek to the Washington Times to Saturnight Live and NPR,so that people think he’s doing great things.

It doesn’t matter how “electable” a conservative is,it’s all about the media coverage and the public perception created from it.

ebayer on May 28, 2011 at 12:06 pm

skzion, Mitt is just another phoney Republican who is loyal to the party first. Look at the $105 billion that got thru for Obamacare in last year’s lame duck congress. The Republicans, were supposed to believe, got snookered again. They will keep doing this, on everything! Mitt Romney will go right along with it. The only time they talk tough is when they’re in a safe district or when the want the Republican nomination. The Rep party shares power with the Dems and the corporations who give them millions. I hope Sarah Palin and Ron Paul aren’t taking the money, too, cause if they are then they’re corrupt, too. But they are the only two who have genuinely taken on the party. They said Reagan was dumb, but he was serious about limited government.

David Lanham on May 28, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I will vote for a yellow dog over B. O.

But, will that change the world, NO.

Non-Sequitur on May 28, 2011 at 2:37 pm

If we elect Palin or Ron Paul, and they do everything perfectly, they MIGHT stop the coming collapse of the dollar. If these two parties are allowed to continue their destruction, the dollar is absolutely finished. The party leadership has to be stopped.

David Lanham on May 28, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Palin supported TARP, a cap on carbon emissions, a two-state solution in Israel, the Libyan action, and in reference to Obamacare constantly uses the RINO phrase “Repeal and Replace” rather than repeal. She is a populist hack, not a conservative.

Stephen Schochet on May 29, 2011 at 2:37 am

I agree with pretty much everything that has been said here in criticism of Palin. Her intelligence is certainly somewhat limited, and her extemporaneous comments disclose that all too tellingly. She clearly is also an opportunist, and plays to elements of her base that are unable to think very critically. The problems of our country deserve more than mouthings about ‘Mama Grizzly’.

At the same time, however, it is irritating to hear liberals criticize her for defects, real and alleged, that they are very often guilty of themselves. Their flip comments, and one or two-word epithets, like those they hurled at Reagan, Nixon and Bush display a haughtiness that is unjustified; of course people like that cannot discuss Palin seriously and their arrogance plays into the liberals’ overall suppression of free speech.

At the same time, there seems to be an industry building up among faux-conservatives of promoting ritual above real political discussion or thoughtfulness much as Palin, herself does. I’m sure the wilds of Alaska are beautiful, but they don’t promote much real political discussion (maybe a little about oil). Similarly, while I support military families, sympathize with the people of Joplin, and agree that Christmas should have an important role in public as well as private life, politicians who dwell on these issues at the expense of the complex problems confronting us contribute more to these problems than to their solutions.

Little Al on May 29, 2011 at 10:20 am

You people constantly refer to anyone who likes her as unable to think, etc. How insulting and arrogant. Most of the criticism I hear from here is childish junior high sniping. Anyway, I’ll wait and see if she really is conservative enough, if not I’ll write in Ron Paul. And meanwhile, the dollar is doomed, so I’m open to suggestions. Haven’t heard any…I hope you people are stocking up on silver, gold, rice, motor oil…look at what the chinese are doing, they’re diversifying out of the dollar and into “things”. Thr dollar is losing it’s status as the reserve currency, which means we won’t be able to print any more…I’m still waiting to hear who’s going to reverse that.

David Lanham on May 29, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Well, DH, as far as being able to think, I’ll let your post speak for itself.

But as far as ol’ Dr. Paul, it might be a good idea to check out his new position on illegal immigration.
