Sarah will declare bankruptcy in two years

“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.
Stupid sells

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.

    Sarah Palin is the perfect grinning face and the honky-down you’all of the GOP Tea Party wacks. Hee-haw! I can see Russia from my house! Lock and load folks, lets shoot some wolfs!

    But hey, she’s really getting rich quick off all them brain-dead folks out there that love her. Dang-gone-it !!

    • griff  April 14, 2010 at 10:21 am

      I’m afraid she never said she could see Russia from her house. That was SNL. Look up the actual interview on YouTube.

      I’m no fan of Palin, but relying on SNL for talking points is pretty ridiculous.

      • Bill Cravener  April 14, 2010 at 12:28 pm

        She couldn’t see Russia from her house? Come on griff, do you always take everything spoken literally?

        • griff  April 14, 2010 at 8:31 pm

          Do you? How about when Obama said he campaigned in 57 states? Does that put him in the same league? Would that make him unfit for the presidency, considering he doesn’t even know how many states there are?

          The exact quote, “You can actually see Russia from land here…”

          No mention of her house. In fact my brother, a resident of Anchorage, would tell you the same thing. But I guess a successful businessman such as he is pretty dumb too.

      Watch it Bill, your racism is showing.

        woody, oops, is it? ;-)

        griff, now calm down, take a deep breath. . .

        I don’t care what Sarah can see. Probably nothing more then a moose or maybe the aurora borealis, but I suspect what she mostly sees is just air.

        • griff  April 15, 2010 at 4:23 pm

          Nor do I. But I do care about truth, which is in very short supply these days.

    Health insurance reform = Republican coffin
    Sarah Palin = the last nail

  3. Mightymo  April 14, 2010 at 10:50 am

    She’s a clown, nothing more.

    Her 15 minutes of fame should have ended at the same time as it did for Joe the Plumb-bob, why it didn’t is beyond me.

    Sarah Palin – The gift that just keeps on giving!

  5. Carl Nemo  April 15, 2010 at 12:21 am

    To settle the issue as to whether Sara Palin can see Russia from Alaska or not I thought I’d post a Slate.com link.

    http://www.slate.com/id/2200155/

    No, she cannot see Alaska from her Anchorage location, but if you go to a remote island in the Bering see; ;ie, Little Diomede one can see the Russian territorial island of Big Diomede when its clear. When one takes a look at the map, its instantly seen that these islands are extremely remote. When the sea ice freezes over one can hike from Little to Big Diomede on foot or with the assistance of a sled and dogs.

    • Carl Nemo  April 15, 2010 at 12:24 am

      Addendum to post:

      Here’s a better link showing an actual photo of the proximity of Little (US) to Big Diomede (Russia) .

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diomede_Islands

      • Guardhouse lawyer  April 15, 2010 at 2:32 pm

        From that same article:

        “The Diomede Islands are often mentioned as likely intermediate stops for a bridge or tunnel (Bering Strait bridge) spanning the Bering Strait.”

        Who knew that in addition to Alaska’s infamous bridge to nowhere there were people who could conceive of a bridge FROM nowhere TO nowhere?

    • Carl Nemo  April 15, 2010 at 12:35 am

      “Bering see” …Yep ‘see’. I’ve been around the sea most of my life and when I write something about being able to see Russia from Alaska I type “see”… / : |

      Sorry for the brain fart.

      To see, or not to see: that is the question:
      Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
      The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
      Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
      And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
      No more; and by a sleep to say we end
      The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
      That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
      Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
      To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
      For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
      When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      Must give us pause: there’s the respect
      That makes calamity of so long life;
      For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
      The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
      The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
      The insolence of office and the spurns
      That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
      When he himself might his quietus make
      With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
      To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
      But that the dread of something after death,
      The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
      No traveller returns, puzzles the will
      And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      Than fly to others that we know not of?
      Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
      And thus the native hue of resolution
      Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
      And enterprises of great pith and moment
      With this regard their currents turn awry,
      And lose the name of action. – Soft you now!
      The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
      Be all my sins remember’d.
      For visage of an isle in the wilderness
      Far north in the icy sea
      Doth not maketh one experienced foreign policy wise,
      Nor a likely presidential candidate be!

    I think that Palin is already bankrupt is a variety of ways outside of financially.

    • Carl Nemo  April 17, 2010 at 12:18 am

      I’m impressed logtroll with your reply, especially with your last few creative lines added to Hamlet: Act 3, Scene 1.

    From the land of the tin hat, is it possible that the party and the McCain campaign decided that his candidacy was a lost cause, and the decision to pick Palin was not a last ditch attempt to avoid an embarrassing loss, but a last ditch attempt to generate some excitement and save candidates downstream of the Presidential race? Also, was Palin chosen, in spite of her obvious flaws, to introduce her to the national political audience in anticipation of just what she is now doing – agitating from her celebrity position? Wow, talk about seeing conspiracies behind the bushes.

  9. Rob Kezelis  April 15, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    The diva’s star is already fading, much like that Sign From God that hit midwestern skies at 10pm last night. She managed to have a few thousand attend her most recent appearance, a far cry from a growing, people powered movement. And, apparently, the Discovery Channel has realized that they bought themselves a package of rotten eggs. After trying to “sell” advertising time for Sarah’s new ejukashunal program (for which Bible Spice earns $250,000 per show), some advertisers were laughing out loud at the idea.

    I guess they could always try to sell the show on Comedy Station.

    • griff  April 15, 2010 at 5:42 pm

      It can’t happen soon enough, Rob. It’s been reported that she “earned” more than 12 million this past year, but most likely much more. If she manages to go bankrupt (financially, that is), then she has no business portraying herself as a conservative any thing, much less a leader.

      • Rob Kezelis  April 16, 2010 at 7:25 am

        Looking at her entourage alone, those costs must be huge. I read someplace (and cannot find it again) that her top three readers/thinkers are paid $10,000 a month. Just to write her pithy talking points? $360,000 a year, plus travel, room and board?

        The maths don’t add up. I don’t see her money spigot ever higher, and most likely much lower. The bucks are flowing out as fast as they flow in, if not faster.

        • griff  April 16, 2010 at 8:16 am

          I’ll bet dollars to donuts that we’ll be seeing her in Playboy soon. Perhaps a Palin-Pelosi pillow fight pictorial? The only thing that surprises me is that we haven’t run out of surprises yet.

  10. b mcclellan  April 15, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    I ponder the least of us, stoop so low as to help the highest willingly.

    Then I ponder just how ” high ” , they think we are ?

    Lots of noise, keep it an octave above static, none will know til we’ve ransacked the attics and the basements of their very souls.

    Where is that Confounded Constitution ?

    • Kent Shaw  April 16, 2010 at 10:48 am

      Ronald Reagan showed us that deficits don’t matter. George Bush showed us that the constitution is “just a goddamned piece of paper”.

  11. Angie  April 17, 2010 at 6:13 am

    Many of these costs– the security, personal assistants, ghostwriters, consultants, she is paying for using her PAC, which interestingly spent more than it took in last quarter and only spent 2% on candidates. I agree with the bankruptcy prediction though, b/c she is only one personal scandal away from having her income stream dry up. They are building a big mega-mansion in AK and money is likely flowing out just as fast as it’s coming in. Right now her PAC is serving as a personal slush fund. Take a look at how much she’s spending from it for her (and Bristol’s) personal attorney. If donations to her PAC stopped she’d be in real trouble.

  12. Jeffery Haas  April 17, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    Griff, you scare me.
    A Palin Playboy pictorial?
    I have to gouge out my mind’s eye with a dull spoon now.
