Patterico's Pontifications


Hilarious Sarah Palin YouTube Video

Filed under: 2008 Election,General — Patterico @ 6:54 pm

Althouse is right: this is brilliant — and it’s a perfect set-up for the speech.

Be warned: there is profanity.

Power Glutes Sullivan is pre-moping:

In all likelihood, Sarah Palin will deliver a speech that will tear the roof off the Xcel Center tonight. Every single commentator on the cable and the networks will declare it a triumph. The base will exult at their Joan of Arc triumphing over the evil, despicable vile press, who have had the effrontery to ask a potential future vice-president of the United States basic questions about her life story and record.

Guess what, Glute-boy? You’re right. The speech will indeed cause her image to soar — even though anyone can read a speech, and it doesn’t really mean anything.

And it’s the fault of dimbulbs like you. Half-wits who have artificially depressed expectations, by taking a bright and capable woman and making it seem like she’s nothing more than an unqualified former beauty queen hick. Tonight, when the country sees otherwise, they’ll be shocked. Shocked to learn that tools like you had misled them so badly.

So, yeah. What would have been an impressive rollout will now be a blockbuster. You just realized that today, and so now you’re trying to raise the same expectations you’ve been dampening for days.

We, the newly excited members of the Republican Party, thank you for your utter idiocy.

Watch that video above. That is going to be the public image of Sarah Palin: an ass-kickin’, gun-shootin’, mooseburger eatin’ middle-class woman — regular folks, but with competence and a cheerful fighting spirit. If that’s the image of the Republican ticket, you guys lose.

Thanks for helping, moron.

  1. Why do you keep quoting/linking glute boy? You are only adding credibility to his crap. Do like the Amish do. Shun him. Pretend he does not exist. He will go away.

    If you disagree with him and write about it, he’s still relevant. Shun him, he’s irrelevant. That is punishment enough for the likes of him.

  2. One of my friends, a long-time Democrat, was a bit more honest — he said that the bar has been set so low for Palin by the media that she’s practically guaranteed to soar over it tonight.

    Like a lot of Democrats, he’s somewhat frenzied in his loathing of Palin — and obviously nervous about the new element she’s added to the campaign. But that’s what they get for pickinb Biden for their VP, the schmucks.

  3. Caught this great video on Hot Air. This commentary is icing on the cake.

    “Thanks for helping, moron.” hahahaha

    Sulky Sully can go suck lemons. The real conservatives will be rejoicing in the streets when McCain/Palin win. Witnessing their panic and flailing around would be sheer awesomeness were it not for the appalling depths to which theyve felt justified in sinking these last five days.

  5. Watching the convention – Rudy’s tying a can around The Messiah’s backside and kicking his teeth in. Don’t mess with a New Yawwwkaa!

  6. Beautiful recognition that the Dems are fine with having established the only standard for a spot at the top of a national ticket is the ability to deliver a good speech while reading from a teleprompter.

    18+ million Dems can’t be wrong!!!

  7. Giuliani’s line, coming from the former Mayor of New York, that it was a shame if her hometown was not cosmopolitan enough for him. And followed it up with the suggestion that perhaps they “clung to religion” there.

    A great zing.

  8. that should have read “was not cosmopolitan enough for Obama”.

  9. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. It’s really amazing how folks like Sully and the Left (e.g. the NY Times) have got the Republican Party shoulder-to-shoulder. Haven’t seen that since 1980.

    Hey! We took the Senate in 1980, too, when everyone expected the Dems to hold. Keep it up guys!

  10. I’m very curious if she wrote the speech. I’d love to think she came up with some of those zingers. Excellent speech for a convention, smooth delivery, most of all a naturalism and sincerity that just came off the stage in waves. Bravo.

  11. Maybe I’m jaded but I thought this was just another political speech, no more and no less, but delivered quite well. Did it wow the base? Yes, but mainly because it was looking to be wowed. Did it attract women? Only the ones who are not abortion on demand zealots. The rest of them who are interested in the environment, fishing rights for Indians, or seaweed preservation will not be moved. Did it attract youth? No. Blacks? Don’t be silly. Mexicans? Perhaps.

  12. Just think the social worker Obama got smashed tonight…. This lady Sara is incredible and I will vote for them this year. How stupid are you to try and bring down some one so strong, she now makes your site look like a fool.
    As a women we need here and this country needs a person like her at least she had a job with responsibility unlike Obama rama.. Long live Sara

    Your site is so foolish you must be one of the fools that was protesting

  13. “So, yeah. What would have been an impressive rollout will now be a blockbuster.”

    For which we can be truly thankful.

    Goes to demonstrate the wisdom of that old proverb I just coined: Never get in the way of an idiot attempting suicide with the jawbone of an ass.

  15. The bar was set low for her? Jeez, doesn’t anyone remember all of the softball questions that Obama has gotten, the pictures of Obama with Halos around his freaking head on the cover of Rolling Stone and others, the fawning?

    Listen, they set the bar low for Obama, and by doing so allowed her to jump over it. The problem for the MSM is that they didn’t know that she existed. Too bad for them she does, and now they’ve been hung out to dry by the the rope of their own making.

  16. That was hilarious!
    I’m going to send it to all of my republican friends! We love this. Outstanding! I am serious..I cracked up! I can’t stop laughing.
    I guess I’m supposed to be mad?
    Don’t worry, McCain-Palin get my vote! This is a whole lot of fun! I’m clinging to my guns and religion and laughing all the way!
    Thanks for making my day!

  17. McCain claims he’s ready to lead but takes the lead from Obama who started using “Change” as a political theme.

    Don’t you think this is ironic? The Republicans only hope is to steal the Democrats platform because they don’t have one themselves.

  18. This satire link is funny as well…McCain picked Palin via instant message..haha:
