Palin Disappointed by Potential Clinton Nomination

Red Alert! We have a potential political situation here, people.

Perennial thinkin-about-it candidate and Fox News on-again off-again noisemaker Sarah Palin is at risk of being disappointed. Disappointed in YOU, America. That’s right. You may not live up to the expectations of the ex-half-governor. Sit with the shame for a moment. Sit silently.

Palin has announced via her megaphone at Fox News that she would be “disappointed” in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The woman on whose shoulders Palin stood with her Naughty Monkey pumps, humbly thanking her for putting “16 million cracks in that glass ceiling” is now in her Disappointment Doghouse. Because… Benghazi.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

“If (Benghazi) doesn’t have an impact on the 2016 presidential election, if she is a candidate, then America, I am very disappointed in our electorate,” Palin said Sunday…

She said “anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered” should “never be considered as a commander in chief.”

Notice the inclusion of the word “ethos” in her statement. She’s been using that New-Word-A-Day™ calendar someone got her for Christmas. [thumbs up]

“That’s why I’m so grateful for Congress to be pursuing what happened in Benghazi,” Palin went on. “Because at this point, it still makes a difference what happens in Benghazi. Anyone who doesn’t understand that and dismisses it as being indifferent, they should not be our commander in chief.”

“Dismisses it as being indifferent (sic)” refers, of course, to a portion of Clinton’s response to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) who was badgering her during Congressional hearings about the administration’s original erroneous talking points – that the Embassy attack had originated from a spontaneous protest, rather than a planned terrorist attack.

“What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton responded. “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator.”

If you’re going to take a selection of a partial response out of context, may as well butcher the grammar, I say. [thumbs up again also too]

Clinton said in a recent interview with New York Magazine that she is in no hurry to decide about a 2016 run for the White House, saying it is a decision “not to be made lightly.”

Hold the phone. Palin may be disappointed yet again. Pausing, and hesitating? Surely not the sign of a serious candidate and born leader, committed to the mission. Not very Commander-in-chief-y.

People who sat clutching a blankie during the weeks following Palin’s own nomination to the second highest position in the executive branch may remember her thoughts on this matter when she introduced herself to Charlie Gibson and the nation.

GIBSON: And you didn’t say to yourself, “Am I experienced enough? Am I ready? Do I know enough about international affairs? Do I — will I feel comfortable enough on the national stage to do this?”

PALIN: I didn’t hesitate, no.

GIBSON: Didn’t that take some hubris?

PALIN: I — I answered him yes because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you can’t blink, you have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that we’re on, reform of this country and victory in the war, you can’t blink.

So I didn’t blink then even when asked to run as his running mate.

No blink. No think. Victory in the war over the weapons of mass destruction that never existed, for which her own “disappointment” in the Commander-in-Chief was a-snooze. Remember who the “serious” voices are out there, folks. And ask yourself, how will you sleep with the heavy heavy weight of knowing that you might not live up to the discerning political leadership standards of the woman who was chosen by the electorate, and then chose to quit.

    Well the American people will be disappointed in Palin when she has to appear in court over her domestic-terrorism and money laundering of a HUGE account…and to think they all ALMOST got away with it…

    • Pepper1939 says:

      More, please! That is a teaser statement!

    • lol... says:

      oh that…lol…sorry don’t mean to sound like that…just old news that finally sees the light…well a kid was shipped to Alaska in 1966 that is from England and from a royal family…well in short that “placement” proved to be a “fleecing of the HUGE trust account” that came with it…they crucified that poor kid…took the money and tortured the “birthright owner”…anyways…The Kid is resilient and so transparent the whisper of that kid’s name makes Sarah go crazy…lol…dumb broad for participating in the “racket”…
      See…they embezzled that money and Ritcher Investments are selling off stuff now eh Sarah? lol…
      Well when The Kid goes to Geneva this month it will all fall apart for the USA and the UK as well…
      Things are not what they seem and they just used Sarah to get some money they invested that Frank wouldn’t let them have until motions were filed…is that what that missed opportunity means Sarah?
      Not to say Sarah didn’t get a pat on the head and money to go with her scheming and permission to terrorize in hopes that if that Birthright owner DIES then what “crimes committed”? and that went so well!
      Well my dear…it is going to cost the USA and the UK a whole bunch of money they really don’t have…
      It’s going to be be HUGE….besides who the biological parents of this poor little rich kid are/was…!!!!
      And The Kid is in Alaska and lives on the edge of poverty because Sarah took what wasn’t hers….
      Sound to me like the paybacks from Alaska, USA and the UK will be HUGE…potentially HUGE Obama says… what could that really mean Sarah…lol…oh and the DNA went back with Iran, Russia, China!
      So as brother from another mother can get evidence of that “international connection” hu Sarah…lol…

    The only good thing about Scarah Payme is that many of us discovered The Mudflats, among other Alaskan blogs like Stonekettle. And coming together online, many of us made lifelong friends.

  3. Moles says:

    Oh God I’m_ so_ SICK of her. If only she’d walk over an uncovered manhole.

  4. fishingmamma says:

    Why is she still here? She applied for the job of Vice President and we turned her down. That is NOT a job qualification. That does not make her a political genius, that makes her an also-ran.

  5. Alaska Pi says:

    Poor ole whatzername never fails to disappoint, does she?
    Best be careful there dearie, also too- the Alaskan ethos of
    always being on hand to help each other in crisis took a pretty big hit
    from you, hon.
    Months of ignoring warning signs, months of foodling around, and the infamous cookie run to SW AK
    ring any bells, whatzername?
    Now- all THAT- that was indifference.

  6. labman57 says:

    That’s okay. By this point in her pathetic political career, the Whining Wannabe from Wasilla most certainly has become accustomed to being disappointed.

  7. Tallimat says:

    Screech is screeching again.

  8. Pepper1939 says:

    Failed to mention the 12 embassy attacks under Bush admin. And the 53 deaths… And 9-11 ?.. Brother!,,

  9. Pat in MA says:

    She’s wired in such a way that she’s “so committed to the mission” oh reaaaallllly. Committed and Palin in the same sentence? Only when referring to a mental healthcare facility.

  10. WC was in the grocery store yesterday. There was a little kid riding in a shopping cart, incessantly honking on one of those New Year’s noisemakers. Bwee, bwee, bwee.

    The only difference between the little kid’s noise and our very own Quitter’s obnoxious honking is that the little kid is too young to know better.
