Sarah Says Sorry

Remember that great Sarah Palin Movie?

Remember that great Sarah Palin Movie?

I was digesting her idea of an apology to Pope Francis, when I recalled that Sarah Palin is not much of a reader. I remember that from aught eight. The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate can’t be bothered with facts either. She’s totally unable to understand the concept of showing respect, at least to the Offices of the men she is trashing – such as the President of the United States and the leader of the largest church in the world – who becomes more visible and more “liberal” every day.

How can she not be aware of the Pope’s daily front-page activities? My guess is that she didn’t like his coming down so hard on the highly questionable activities of people like her and her cohorts. I don’t imagine the moneylenders in the Temple at Jerusalem were too fond of Jesus either, when he took a whip and drove them out.

At any rate, I doubt very much if Pope Francis was bothered by, or even noticed, the antics of the Paris Hilton (hmmm, Paris Palin?) of politics. I’m sorry, I probably should read more about her before saying something so catty, but I’m just following in Sarah’s fashionable footsteps.

In my own defense, from nymag.com, on September 12, 2008, and I quote, ‘ … Palin wore a pair of bright-red, peep-toe pumps with three-and-a-half-inch heels by Naughty Monkey, which is generally marketed to “women in their early to mid-20s who go clubbing.” Sales of Naughty Monkey shoes have increased by 50 percent on Amazon since Palin wore them.’ It goes on to say that, “Celebrities like Paris Hilton had been photographed in the brand’s shoes, but seldom, if ever, a 40-something politician.”

And so I rest my case. Let her critique fashion, not world leaders!

    Melody,

    The only thing Palin has that attracts attention is her appearance. She is a rare example of a woman who truly should be “obscene and not heard.”

    Apart from her appearance she is a disgrace to all American female politicians. I agree with Theresa -- the best course is to ignore her.

    • Oh, Larry, you’ve always been a better man than I. Or maybe I just have a lower Palin threshold than you two. You must admit, though, that she could hardly be a more enticing target than when she is giving her “insider political opinion”, liberally (if you’ll pardon the pun) sprinkled with some of her very own Maverick sauce.

  3. I cannot ignore Palin either. She is a joke & helpful for getting on a good rant. When she criticized Pope Francis, even I couldn’t let that go. He is one of the most impressive Popes since Pope John Paul I. If he had lived I believe there would have been great changes in the Catholic Church. Now with Pope Francis, I think he will see Pope John Paul I’s dreams fulfilled & keep going with his own.

    Sarah Palin is good for one thing. She gives jobs to actors, i.e. Tina Fey & Julianne Moore.

    Rail on her any time you want. I will be a faithful reader of your words & will definitely join in on the fun.

    Never have taken Palin seriously, just something to take the edge off. And as for her cohorts, I have a great line for you, “Conservatives aren’t ignorant, they just know a lot that’s not true.” — anonymous. I, personally, am not so sure about the ignorant part, though, but I will try to give them some benefit of doubt.

    Great article. May I call you Melody? Great fun, Melody, to put Palin into perspective. :D Jk

    • Jennifer, thank you, not least for the anonymous quote. That’s priceless. It’s still so hard for me to take her seriously, but a lot of people do. I try to look at her as comic relief, you betcha. I keep hoping she will just go away, but she will probably retain her ‘relevance’ till her looks begin to go. Then Tina Fey and Julianne Moore will have to find something else to do.

      I do have a particular, personal bone to pick with her and that is that I’ve never been able to look at Thanksgiving the same since I saw the interview where she completely ignored the carnage behind her and the “Deliverance”-type character leering at her as he beheaded those poor turkeys. If that’s not a clue, I don’t know what is! :)

      • I do remember that awful scene when she was lining up her shot, totally oblivious or she just didn’t give a damn. “Deliverance,” that film freaks me out and so did that slaughter scene. He did look like he was plucked right out of that film.

        I am sure you haven’t forgotten her bragging about shooting poor defenseless animals from out of a helicopter. Scaring them close to death with that awful uproar above them, then taking the furthest step, just plain killing them outright. Like they had any chance of escaping her ambush.

        To me she is the epitome of pure heartlessness. She may have some control of the tea party, and they are mindless fools too, but soon, I am hoping, they will just fade away from the planet. Maybe in their own self perpetuating rapture along with the Christian Group George W. Bush is going to speak to. Those who want to convert Jews to Christ in order to speed up the apocalypse and their rapture.

        In all the confusion, maybe Palin will get sucked up with them all. We can only hope. I really am exhausted with all of them.

        I read what you said in reference to her needing serious counseling. Do you think she is capable of self analysis? I really don’t think she is able to process a thought. Her words are fed to her in the order she is supposed to say them. Even that she is has difficulty doing.

        Just a thought. :D

    I have never cared for her. I am continually appalled at the inanity that spews from her though and others like her. sighs… Melody we are both Capricorns. :)

    • Dani, does anybody truly like her, poor thing? Her personal relationships seem always to be teetering on the brink, and if the movie about her is anything to go by, she probably needs serious counseling.

      It’s simply difficult to feel a connection to someone who is almost a caricature of herself. And yes, indeed, we’re Capricorns, and proud of it. :)
