Palin wows them at the Gridiron Club

And given these excerpts from Don Surber, more than pissed a few off:

Her book has no index so that people can check to see what page they are on in her book. Politico said she provided one: "A: Alaska, media not understanding it, page 1-432. B: Biased, Page 1-432."

Other lines: "If the election had turned out differently, I could be the one overseeing the signing of bailout checks and Vice President Biden could be on the road selling his book, 'Going Rogaine'."

And this line: "It's good to be here though, really, in front of this audience of leading journalists and intellectuals, or as I like to call it, a death panel."

And: "Sometimes you just got to trust your instincts. And when you don"t, you end up in places like this."

And: "You betcha. Who talks that way?"

And: "At least now I can put a face to the newspapers I do read."

And on Frank: "And I'm the controversial one?"

And a dig at John McCain's campaign staff: "The view is so much better inside the bus than under the bus."

And on campaign manager Steve Schmidt: "If I need a bald campaign manager, I guess I'm left with James Carville."

And the line about seeing a picture of the president and China's president Hu Jinato and being told, "Hu's the communist."

Palin: "I thought he was asking a question."

And her alternative title for her autobiography: "How to Look Like a Million Bucks for Only $150,000."

And the line of the night (or what was reported so far) on her hotel room: "I could see the Russian Embassy."

Ya gotta love her... unless you're warped.

James H:

I don't know why, but Republican politicians generally seem to be better comedians than Democratic politicians. We saw something like this with McCain and Obama addressing the Alfred Smith dinner last year. Obama was funny, but McCain was hilarious.

It's a pity everybody is so tightly controlled on the campaign trail. McCain, Bob Dole, and (to an extent) Al Gore are all funny as hell when they're allowed to go off script.

The Left has absolutely no idea what to do with a strong, effective female elected official who isn't a dour, butch, Ivy League-educated, ultra-liberal, secularist children's defense lawyer or women's rights activist.

And Sarah Palin is taking their petty temper tantrum all the way to the bank. Go Sarah!

James H: "I don't know why, but Republican politicians generally seem to be better comedians than Democratic politicians."

I know why. Too many (ok, almost all) Democrat politicians take themselves WAY too seriously. AND they expect everyone ELSE to take them (too) seriously too.

Yep, I'm warped, I'll own it. I loathe Palin for both her policies and her style. She embodies the face of "Ugly America", and I see no reason to support that.

For a group of blogger pundits who so throughly railed on Obama's lack of experience and inability to get to the core of issues, you guys sure have locked in hard on the Conservative version of that problem.

Did Lynn Vincent write Mrs. Palin's jokes as well as her book?

And why wouldn't Mrs. Palin be comfortable among reporters? She has a degree in journalism. Of course, she had to go to five of America's finest backwater colleges to get it. She also worked as a newspaper and video sports reporter.

But seriously, folks, Sarah Palin's bus tour is really taking off.

Victory is Ours:

Sarah Palin is the voice of right wing nutcakery.

I agree with others who've suggested that Democrats should change their voter registration party affiliation to Republican and vote for Sarah in the primaries.

The anti-abortion nutcakes will support her, and if enough Democrats get behind her we just might be able to get her on the ticket in 2012.

I can think of nothing better for the Progressive movement than to have a low-IQ single-issue Barbie doll to run against. She's even more stupid than Bush. It'll be a sure thing for Obama's re-election.

Memorial Day? Does he even know what that's for?

His tranny looking wife will NEVER have the class of Nancy Ragan, or Laura Bush. Ever!

"Sarah Palin is the voice of right wing nutcakery."

"Of course, she had to go to five of America's finest backwater colleges to get it."

Such nice examples - thank you!

You worry so much about 'hate' from the right that you can't even recognize it when you indulge in it yourselves, can you?

Or do you even WANT to? To recognize the existance of your own hatred would mean your self-images of tolerance and acceptance would be in danger - and that might lead to doubt that you're as 'progressive' as you think you are.

No, far better you screech and rail about hatred coming from the right - just keep on projecting your feelings, and see what it ends up getting you!

The left has been calling every consevative "dumb" or "crazy". So much so that it has the same effect as the accusation of being a racist. You hear the word and automatically know it's a liberal talking; and know what is said has no meaning and is to be ignored.

You think the electorate are "dumb sheep" who have to be told who to vote for-especially if it is a conservative. Well, we're not. And we can see though the ruses of the "dumb" and "racist" charges.

Keep it up. Those charges actually help us and hurt liberals.

What is he hiding? Did O'stupid write every word of his books? Because I am sure, but not positive, I will not insist that he did not. I am pretty sure he had a ghost writer. But, trying to get the truth out of that experienced liar is like saying Michelle has the class, integrity, and social graces of Jackie O, Nancy R., and Laura B. In reality, Michelle is not good enough to shine their shoes.

Did you complain about his date nites with the ugly broad he hangs with at taxpayer cost? Did you have anything against his golf days, which he spent more days playing golf his first 9 months in office that GWB did during his whole first term? Where is the outrage? You liberal idiots are all the same. Hate all you want, but don't see the same faults in your own kind.

That's one thing I've noticed on the left - there IS no sense of humor when it comes to themselves. You won't see Obama making fun of himself - neither will Pelosi, or Reid. After all, they have their dignity to maintain!

SNL, however, is willing to poke fun at him - and that's a good thing! The higher the office, the more important the occupant has a sense of humor that'll allow him to laugh at himself!

ChrisO:

Those were some pretty funny line someone wrote for her. Every politician, Republican or Democrat, who appears at one of these functions has professional joke writers script their gags. It always amuses me to see ignorant commenters claim that the funniness of the jokes somehow says something positive about their favorite politican.

It's especially amusing when Palin is currently on tour promoting her book that she didn't write. Oh, but Madalyn, with absolutely no proof, is "pretty sure" that Obama had a ghostwriter, so I guess it's even.

Ignorance is bliss. Isn't it, Gianni.
Palin isn't even in league with Obama and never will be. She's an ignoramus, a simple minded fool and an embarrassment (or should be) to the GOP.

Read this and learn a little about yourself:

The Irrefutable Stupidity of Sarah Palin

This is pretty much how the rest of us - i.e - those who are not delusional and/or uneducated - feel about Palin and those who support her.

By the time he leaves office (one way or another) we will need a Constitutional Convention in order to repair the damage that clown has done. So, while you obumma sycophants slobber and swoon while he licks the boots of America's enemies, sells our national security down the river, and undermines our military - keep in mind the repercssions headed your way.

Yeah. Really intelligent. Check your spelling and grammar.

I think you will find that the vast majority of uneducated and/or delusional are members of the democratic party - republicans usually have HS + education and don't hang around the hood selling/smoking crack.

You're making that claim? Show proof. Otherwise, shut up.

None of what you say really matters anyway since we are the majority and you are exactly where you should be - in the political wilderness. I know you have delusions of grandeur that you'll be out of it soon, but that's all they are. Your pathetic hopes. Not reality.

You can claim superiority as much as you want, but the truth of the matter is you are nowhere right now. Spell it after me (since I'm already aware you have spelling issues): N-O-W-H-E-R-E

So stop embarrassing yourself by defending a simpleton like Palin and get a clue how to function in a world of intelligent human beings. Or go live in a shack in Montana.
