“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone. She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else. Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom.”
— Anon. McCain aide
“She’s not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president? Look at what she’s done to this state. What would she do to the nation?”
— State Senate President Lyda Green (GOP- Alaska)

FROM THE CHURCH OF INEFFABLE STUPIDITY:
It was more than a year ago when I relegated Wasilly Sarah to mere insulting commentary, a half-assed, sarcastic off the cuff remark, an aside, in my sermons. Given the MSM’s continuing, even growing, fascination with her, it appears that I suffer from premature
ejacula rejection. In simple-minded terms, I wuz wrong. She remains a significant farce in American Politicks.
According to one source, (since repeated ad nauseum by everybody else), the Wassilly HillyBilly made off with $12 Millions over her last 9 months. Talk about a profitable pregnancy. Never has any other quitter made off with so much loot in so little time. One would almost think that she had a fully functioning brain inside that vapid, hollow, mostly unused cranium.
One only needs to see the Quitter from Wassiller’s demands in her super secret contract with a California university to find the real Sarah. First class tix, OR a Lear 60? The right to grift even more money on any visit she (or her corporation) accepts? No, the best one is the most obvious. She demands “Pre Screening of all Questions.”
Roll that last one over your tongue, like a fine single malt, an elderly cognac, or a wonderfully aged cheese. Pre-Screened Questions? Give me an effing break.
On one hand you have to admire how far her greed and arrogance have gotten her. Quitting Alaska was truly a huge step up for her. This is no 15 minutes of fame, rather, this is 15 MILLION in profits. Every skank, male and female, around the world wishing to make it rich, must be looking at her with admiration and jealousy.
On the other hand, the devil’s in the details. And it is the details that will be her problem. And the source of her ultimate demise.
Despite a bevy of tutors, a gaggle of teachers, a horde of experts, and a posse of handlers, the most amazing facets of this shallow, grifting starlet is her amazing capacity for constant intellectual laziness, her stubbornly willful ignorance, and a truly amazing, deliberate inattention to critical, rational analysis. The most common refrain from the McCain folks (some of whom I know and respect) was that she was unteachable, inept, and not interested in any details. If they fed her facts, her eyes glazed over. Repeatedly.
More than anything else, Alaska’s Finest reminds one of a lottery winner. She hit the big time, and boy, she is gonna make it big, you betcha. Wink wink, nod nod. And she has made it big. She won the jackpot, $12 million so far, with far more to come, she expects. Much like any other flash in the pan, (Paris, Lindsey, Jon Benet, missing besotted blond bimbettes – hell, you choose) the media loves her, and thinks of her as a story that is unstoppable. They ignore their role in her creation, her continuing (often devastating) impact on America’s body politic, and their need for her or someone like her to create a flashy story, while ignoring the task of doing real journalism. Ah, real journalism. RIP.
Even during her book’s tour de farce, it was obvious that she had little staying power and would be rejected by the general public over time. Already she ran a distant 3d in the recent Southern Repulsive Luddite Confluence held in NOLA. Even her own party members realize that she is ignorant, lazy, greedy, and turns off far more people than she excites or ignites. The same forces that push forward the Tea Baggers are the ones behind the continual coverage of all things Sarah. They realize that if they lose this battle, they will never have another chance. Sarah is a means to an end, or if not an end, at least she is a great distraction. Her presence gives them cover while they steal billions. For them, tossing a few millions towards a shallow, ineffably stupid, greedy low life like Sarah is little more than the cost of doing business.
Sarah’s biggest problem, among many others, is a fascinating combination of hubris and greed. I guarantee you that she has no financial advisor, a trusted money manager, or even an investment expert who could handle her new found fame and fortune. She ignores advice, she knows better, and she sees no end to her growing popularity, despite all signs to the contrary. She is living life extra large, and is mentally incapable of seeing her incredible ride come to an end. And that will be her eventual downfall.
William Post won more than $16 million in a lottery. A few years later, after a brother tried to have him killed for his winnings, and a girlfriend sued for her fair share, Post lives only on social security and food stamps.
Janet Lee won $18 million. She recently declared bankruptcy, with $700 in assets to her name.
Jack Whitaker walked away with $315 Million powerball ticket. He regrets his win every single day, as he drowns his sorrow in drink and poverty.
Sarah’s future is no different. Her hubris, her arrogance, and her mental laziness put her in the same place as Post, Lee, and Whitaker. She already spends untold amounts on personal security. She has a gaggle of camp followers who travel with her and fill her ego with all the right messages. I suspect that her costs are now out of control. Of those $12 Million, she feels that she has to spend as quickly as it comes in. Since when did a half term governor of a mostly unpopulated, distant, and ineffectual state require a personal security staff? Hell, Chicago’s Mayor Daley deals with far more difficult and dangerous issues and people, and you can spot him on the street routinely (if you miss him biking on the lake front in the early morning hours). And he deals with a population FOUR TIMES larger than Alaska’s.
Her “special” quality, her arrogance, her willful approach to life is what got her noticed. For the first time in her life, she could live her dream. She won the lottery, and by gosh, she’s gonna live it. Because she knows bestest.
Two years. Plus or minus 3 months. By then her speak-easy gigs will be far and few between. Her costs will increase, not decrease. Her ego will never accept cutting back, or economizing. She will seek BK protection before we vote in 2012.
