And the Twit Goes On.

ttpalin

Cartoon by Tom Tomorrow

7 days and counting.  One week from today, Sarah Palin will join the ranks of national political celebrities and finally leave our poor little state alone.  Then, she’ll be everyone’s problem – bursting through cracked doors with abandon, electrifying the base, talking to Fox News at will, raking in gobs of money, and … opening a new Twitter account.

That’s right, soon-to-be-ex-governor Sarah Palin herself has told us, through her communications medium of choice, Twitter, that she can’t wait until July 26 when she steps down from her position as governor, so she can stop being so darn “politically correct” when she tweets.

Sarah PalinAKGovSarahPalin [snip]10 dys til less politically correct twitters fly frm my fingertps outside State site from TwitterBerry

palintweet

 

OK, that last image was not actually part of her tweet.  It’s just what came to my mind when she used the “flying from her fingertips” analogy.

But, she did stand in front of a crowd and say “screw political correctness” just a few short weeks ago.  So now we have confirmation that the measured, sensible, oh-so-buttoned-down Sarah Palin that you’re used to … the one who is all soft-spoken and professional…will be outta here one week from today.  Without the shackles of the state, we will witness the beginning of a new era – “Sarah Unfiltered,” where the only one reining her in will be the filterless SarahPAC mouthpiece Meg Stapleton.  And even she can’t get between her boss and the Blackberry at 2am.

There is not enough popcorn in the world.

The second-tier support staff also seems to be gearing up lately, with mouthpiece in training Ivy Frye having already cast aside the filters, tweeting with abandon about “haters” who are following her tweets, and “bad” bloggers.  Yes, I am one.  (I place my hand on my heart and take a humble bow)

    Am I the only one who thinks Sarah Palin has had a emotional and/or mental breakdown? Her behavior is becoming more and more erratic and unstable. I heartily dislike her politics and her ethics but she appears to be in need of serious psychiatric help, now!

    I wonder if she will lambast McCain with her tweets even though he finally came out with his strongest statement yet of continued support for his babalicious mavericky choice of a VP loser.

    After all, if AK does go bluer (at least more purply), it’s good….

    Once SP is gone, it’s better….

    If Parnell doesn’t turn into a toady replica of SP, it’s the best thing for AK, at least til next governor’s election.

    I got a quote for sarah……….

  18. mae lewis says:

    Since $arah is so fond of using quotations, here is one for her:
    “Defeat does not finish a man, quitting does. A man is not finished when he is defeated. He’s finished when he quits.”-Richard M. Nixon

    Both President Nixon and Vice President Agnew resigned in disgrace. I decided to look up other famous quitters to see if they were more memorable in their exit. When King Edward gave up his throne for the woman he loved, he was poetic (not twitter poetic). General Douglas MacArthur, when fired by President Truman, gave his famous “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away” speech. Boxer Roberto Duran said it best and to the point when he said, “No mas!” And, Nixon gave another famous press conference much earlier in his career when he warned the reporters, “You won’t have Nixon to kick around any more.”

    Next week end, it will be $arah’s turn to read her final speech as governor, and this will be her chance to shine in the Quitters Hall of Fame. I think that we should all pitch in and help her by suggesting a memorable quote that will echo throughout the ages, such as: “$how me the money!” “You can kiss my grits,” and “Also, I’m gonna git goin’ now, too.”

    “Time DOES fly! Work hard so u can genuinely enjoy every recreation minute! Avoid time spent tearing down, whining, complaining;WORK & ENJOY
    4 minutes ago from TwitterBerry”

    Eight tweets in 3 hours? That’s … one every 22.5 minutes on average.

    Say, maybe 5 minutes to compose and send each one, that’s … 40 minutes.

    So, she got out of “moving house’ chores for … nearly 25% of that 3 hours.

    Way to work hard.

    As for the rest, it boggles my mind how much she can get wrong – grammatically, ideolgically, factually (in re: her own behavior) – and to top it off comes off sounding like some preprogrammed android, spitting out mindless catchphrases.

    If time permits, my rant about ‘hard work’ will be forthcoming, but probably not today. It’s not specific to Sarah but a general rant about work and people’s perceptions – it’s absolutely why some people are registered Republicans and call themselves Conservatives and they simply will not listen to the other ‘liberal’ side, and these are just the kind of people Sarah Palin is poised to court.

  29. ds55 says:

    When G.W.Bush was all “Yee-Haw! We’re gonna kick their butts!” about a preemptive war with Iraq, I remember having this same disgusted feeling that I have about Sarah. His attitude and hers are completely inappropriate.

    This should be a somber time, a time for serious reflection, a time for apology. Instead we get “Yippee! I can hardly wait 10 more days to cut loose on Twitter!”

    I read once where an acting class was instructed to act convincingly crazy and most took turns behaving wildly, pulling their hair, contorting their bodies, and screaming.

    Afterwards, the instructor showed them how behaving inappropriately was a chilling way to demonstrate insanity: She took an object representing the head of John the Baptist and treated it like a cute little puppy, talked baby talk to it, stroked it, and cuddled it.

    “The Lady is a Tramp” was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for … some old musical whose name eludes me.

    It’s from “Babes In Arms” originally. Sinatra also sang it in the movie “Pal Joey”, which is why it’s probably familiar…

    I read some where that Gov of AK can’t accept money outside of what they make from their salary? Did I just misread this? Reason I’m asking is because of the book deal, and the money she’ll get from it. She would have to wait until her term was up? If not then not a problem, but if true, then she planned to leave the office as soon as the book deal was signed.
    * ** ** ** * ** * ** * ** *
    Well, my understanding is that governors and all AK elected (and appointed?) officials have to disclose what money and gifts they and their family receive. What the governor cannot do is have another JOB (because it would conflict with time one should spend governing). So the question would be, is writing a book considered a JOB?

    I believe that either Van Flein or the Personnel Board came out, when the deal was signed, with a pre-fab “No, she’ll be writing it in her spare time all on her home computer and it’s not really a job anyway so don’t even think of filing an ethics complaint you haters, you” statement.

    That being said, I absolutely agree that when she saw the amount of what her first advance would be and knew she’d have to disclose it if she was still governor, that was one of the main factors that tipped her decision to quit. Why fight it, when you have a contract for something that you are presumably guaranteed to make at least 10 times what you make as Gov. of Alaska? I can’t say that in the same circumstances, I wouldn’t have quit either.

    But at lease I would have been honest about my reasons – admitted I WAS too thin-skinned for politics, admit that I COULD have done a better job for the citizens of Alaska and that I hope my lt. gov. and future govs. of the state will do so.

    If she’d given that speech, in a non-wheezy way, I’d have had some respect for her.

    What can they do to her? They can shun her come 2012.
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    I don’t know that it’s a question of what ‘they’ can do, but what her current supporters will do, i.e., will they be comfortable continuing to support her if they can’t see a ‘what’s in it for me’ (or my causes) at the end of the day.

    There are stories out now that suggest SP’s legal fees are either paid, scheduled to be paid, or at least in sight of being able to be paid. The AFT therefore does not need much if anything in the way of donations.

    SarahPAC has at its first reporting astronomically high administrative expenses including salaries and consultant fees which we can only assume will continue. What good did any of that money donated do for the people who donated it?

    My point is that unless Sarah herself is planning on being a candidate, donating to her PAC and AFT are going to be less attractive. Better for people to take their money and give to local political campaigns, I say. And when people are having to make serious choices about where their limited money is going, it’s gonna be a harder sell to give to anything Sarah is involved with since she did quit as governor, and if she does not seriously clean up her act about … how she acts. She needs to get professional and FAST. Respond timely to speaking requests, confirm in advance, keep her commitments, send out intellient, non-snarky press releases and tweets, refrain from attacking and engage in intelligent debate – if her position is the right one, then get out there and defend it.

    BwaaHaHaa!!

    ( I just made myself laugh.)

    I truly believe that ‘they’ do not need to do anything. She will do it to herself – whatever ‘it’ is.

And religulous wackos who don’t seem to care about people dying when under state care.

    Just once I would like something to stick. I truly cannot understand why the story about the lack of care for the elderly, leading to over 200 deaths, has not become a huge story. Simply the fact that AK is the only state to have to be taken over by the ‘feds’ as $P calls them, should be massive news.

    What gives?

  64. mae lewis says:

    SJK: I agree with you! She is promoting herself (in the guise of promoting Alaska) using a state issued blackberry. Ethics complaint: let’s say that she is found to have committed a violation of the ethics code. What can they do? She is going to leave office. Is there a fine? Isn’t Twitter free? She has crossed the line so many times, mixing personal and official that she should have been kicked out long ago.

    So my big question is: Supposed that $arah is found to have committed ethics violations? What can they really do to her? Dear readers: please weigh in if you have any suggestions as to how $arah can be held accountable for all of the damage that she has done!

    “The Lady is a Tramp” was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for … some old musical whose name eludes me.

    I think you must be thinking of Disney’s film “Lady and the Tramp”. One of its songs is “He’s a Tramp”. Don’t know who wrote the music for that.

    However, I think her upcoming tweets will show, once again, she can’t take advice even from a song lyric – “She never bothers with people she hates”.

    I’ve never understood the popularity of that song (LIAT) and the words overall just seem to make no sense to me, IMO, so to associate it with SP still seems apt.

    AKM: I love that cartoon! That sums it up beautifully. Erratic, unqualified and may I might add, deluded and dangerously arrogant. That defines Sarah Palin.

    Anyone who leaves office without providing a legitimate reason, a person has acquired 21 ethics complaints in her wake and a person who has many, many “-gates” simmering below the surface is not mavericky, ‘politically incorrect’ or pioneering. That person is a loser, a quitter, a scammer, a shirker, a liar and a fraud.

    I keep hoping the MSM will expose her for the joke she is, but unfortunately we have a MSM that stills give the likes of Pat Buchanan a platform to spout his despicable racism so I am dubious that Sarah Palin will fade away anytime soon.

    Yes, that one stood out. I thought it might be old, from before she was nominated. It looks more “real” than most of the campaign ones.

  79. Rob in Ca says:

    Memphis you are right. However, this is probably not the true reason. The true reason is that the campaign lawyers warned Palin that she could not keep info confidential if she was defended by state attorneys. Betcha!

    But it is very interesting that Palin was allegedly led to believe the campaign would pick up those legal expenses. That, I believe.

    I still wonder several things:

    1. If the legal expenses are around $600,000 – then how could they be paid off by a legal fund that is, we think, under $200,000?
    2. If the legal fund is ‘frozen’ due to the ethics complaint, how could ANY of the legal expenses be paid off?
    3. How could her expenses be anywhere NEAR $600,000 in the first place? The huge majority of the ethics complaints were summarily rejected, at probably no cost whatsoever to Sarah. (An attorney on this site has pointed out that the expenses are protected by attorney client privilege…Sarah does not have to state the correct amount and we have no way of verifying it)

    My favorite imagined place she’ll end up is France — where she’ll try to collar President Sarkozy and give him a piece of her mind for that telephone call last fall. (/smirk, /snark)

    Don’t forget that Ivy Frye is so thooughtful that she actually sent an email to the state DOA IT guy asking if emails sent from private Blackberries regarding government business could be hidden from public disclosure.

    Of course her e-mail was publicized, and no doubt she, Palin and others continued to conduct government business on their own BB’s irrespective of the law.

    Palin just needs to hire Frank Bailey to complete the troika- Meg, Ivy, and Frank.

A great poet does not self-censor; Sarah Palin seems authentically innocent of what she is saying. She could be the most natural, visionary poet since William Blake.”

  94. Tina Nelson says:

    I remember way back in 1979 when Ray Blanton was forced out of office three days early because of the “Clemency for Cash” business he was accused of operating.

    It was kinda sad because he really did some great things for Tennessee. He started our Department of Tourism (the first in the nation!) and brought several factories into rural areas.

    How profound is it that he covered everyone in bread and butter?
    http://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/imagegallery.php?EntryID=B049

    “Blanton later claimed to be the only recent Tennessee governor who left office poor, and he was never convicted of receiving payments for pardons.”

    I believe RB was a real maverick compared to the schadenfreude i feel for $P.

    The SP story is truly like a Greek tragedy. So many people laid waste and for what?
    * ** * ** * ** * ** *
    And don’t forget, the tragedy that occurs is enevitable [sp?] because the main character has a Tragic Flaw, something about their psyche that makes the decisions they make predictable and ultimately disastrous.

    I believe her Tragic Flaw is her (seeming) refusal to listen to other peoples’ advice when it contradicts what she thinks is right (policy positions) and simply about what she WANTS to do (have McCain campaign put out release about Todd and AIP, for example).

    So, yes, these promised new “non-politically correct” tweets will be entertaining and a big part of her undoing. I just don’t know what the “undoing” will be of. Certainly a future political career, but also of reputation which will enevitably result in financial loss (but probably not before financial gain).

    The Greeks loved their drama too. I wonder what they ate instead of popcorn at the theatre?

  100. psgbill says:

    Question about the afterlife for the our soon to be ex-Gov….Are there any expectations that the State will provide continued support/retirement for the Gov once she leaves. I would expect that someone in State services might be entitled to some compensation given their level of employment. Or, are the just entitled to what they’ve earned through PERS? Don’t know what kind of parachute is provided to Gov’s when they go but since she quit before completing the obligations of the office, I would expect she would forfeit any expectation of compensation….

  101. rebekkah says:

    Since believing in God all my life, I always kept (from old Catholic days) the precept that no one speaks like they are God. Now, the christian doctrines all teach this. He is the Father, all-knowing. Anyone remember the old tv ad, about Margarine/Butter , and a lady who was Mother Nature would say, “No one fools Mother Nature” (then boom, lighting, thunder).

    Well, again, christians are taught they can’t “fool” God. Governor SP knows this. She can try to fool people, anyone of us can try, but no one can fool the Lord God Almighty.

    Am reminding myself, and in case others pass by this site (like Sarah idolizers), am offering this reminder.

    No one has any proof of SOA shenanigans by the Governor – and maybe it will all be proven false. But, the only one who really knows this will be the woman who looks in the mirror, and also her God. – I hope after the 26th that peace and non-divisiveness are the order of the day for Alaskans. Isaiah says, “there is no peace”, saith the Lord, “to the wicked”.

    “You have not been honest about the most important thing about you: the fact that you are a born-again, literal Bible-believing, evangelical Christian. Most people who have never been entrenched in the subculture of fundamentalist Christianity may not understand what this really means, but I do. Like you, I was raised in the Assemblies of God and I was a zealous part of the Jesus Movement. Like you, my life was consumed with seeking God’s will for my life and awaiting the imminent return of Jesus. It’s clear to me that you want to do the Lord’s will, and that is what concerns me. You’ve said and done things like a true believer would. You are on a mission from God. If that is not true, then I challenge you to deny it.

    Former fundamentalists like me know that your worldview is so encompassing, authoritarian, and powerful that it defines who you think you are, the way you view the world, history, other people, the future, and your place in the world. It defines you far more than hockey mom, wife, woman, hunter, governor, or VP candidate.”

    Marlene Winell, Ph.D., is a Bay Area psychologist who specializes in recovery from fundamentalist religion. She is author of “Leaving the Fold: A guide for former fundamentalists and others leaving their religion.” She is the daughter of Assemblies of God missionaries.

    “while the more buttoned-up of her followers enjoy the vicarious sense of freedom? ”

    Geneva- I, too, have wondered what happened! I think that is part of my fascination with her. So many of what should have been the “wrong” people love her. Your quote is right on the money. I think “their Sarah” represents what they think they are. They want to be that hockey mom with upswept hair spouting the talking points Rush has been feeding them. If Sarah is one of them, her rise gives them credibility. What is most confusing is how much they have had to overlook. My fundy (and I mean FUNDY) kin think she has been treated poorly. I think it is more that Sarah gives them a reason to play victim themselves. Fox and Rush are making lots of bucks off this.

    My kin do not watch anything other than Fox. They don’t get MSNBC (requires more $) They only read our local conservative paper and listen to Rush. Their idea of research is to look on drudge or redstate. They aren’t bad people, just unhappy people. Sarah makes them feel politically active. And yes, a bit naughty.

Usually people enter a lottery for a permit to view the bears at McNeil River, but Lloyd issued the permits the governor and her parents used, Leighow said, following guidelines for how many people can be there at once.”

    I’m really puzzled–the fundamentalists I grew up around were horrified by teen pregnancy, drinking, bad language, and assertive women (assertive women might just have been the worst of those four horsemen). A woman who said “screw” anything would have been labeled immediately as Not A Christian Lady. Have those standards changed, or is she going to lose yet another part of the base, leaving her only with the basest of the base? Or is this yet another double standard, allowing her to act like a right-wing shock-jock while the more buttoned-up of her followers enjoy the vicarious sense of freedom? Somebody clue me in…

    I have said it before and I will say it again, Sarah Palin is the best entertainment on TV and the internets (the bitter twitter quitter is priceless), y’all. She makes the conservative elites like Frum, Parker, and their ilk insane, and she reveals herself to be more schizophrenic by the day.

    Now that she is no longer governor, she will not have a title or a job, and I guarantee only the reddest of red state candidates will even consider her offer to campaign for them. If she comes here to northern VA to campaign for the Republican candidate for gov, I will take a day off from work and bring a huge BITTER TWITTER QUITTER sign to the rally. I know now that she takes offense to those, and it may even prompt a special shout out on twitter.

    Palin must have come to hate having McAllister or the newer guy interfering with her spontanious public exhibitionism. Tweets let her bypass everyone. Meg seems to have learned that to be safe she must only echo Sarah’s words in various permutations, as she did in the interview given just after Palin quit. This made me think that the nasty comments she issued on Levi came straight from Sarah’s wording.

    She sees an opening.
    I would be the Blackberry that she and Todd have been sitting up late at night and discussing, “The opened door before her.” Truly. You know she sees a vacancy in the troubled Republican party and seriously believes she can knock off Obama in the next round. She is delusional enough to believe this. My hope and prayer is, the people who were so excited about voting for Barack Obama, present company included, will be apoplectic about protecting his second term from that woman. I believe there are D.C. insiders who have joined her cause and already mapping out the strategy from declaring her oldest son, “Not a Republican” to talk of supporting candidates “regardless of their party”.
    Me thinks she’s going to create her own “Freedom Party” or “Americans United” or something equally ego maniacal with Bible Spice at the helm.
    It doesn’t matter that she won’t work as hard as any other Presidential candidate. She’s the trailblazing rock star quitter. She’ll have her Washington hacks do that work for her and then do the broken wrist wave to her legions of redneck supporters town to “real America” town. It’ll be the Palinpalooza 2011 Tour. And it’s gonna be a brain-rotter. So, get ready for it.
    Some circle of hooker-hiding white men in Washington are going to rally for her and demand she run…that’ll be the spin.

    Sarah, through no real fault of her own, has thousands of devoted fans. I mean, there are probably a dozen or so folks that think I’m a reasonably good guy, but I’ve never had an unrelated devoted fan.

    Fame is a huge high. So is making a lot of money, and shmoozing with the glitterati. She got a taste of it during the campaign, and wants more. She may actually mount a campaign for 2012, but I expect it to be pro forma — to enhance her celebrity. Running a primary campaign is really hard work; much too much work, IMO, for a fame whore.

    Well, here’s one reason why logic & intelligence won’t matter to her followers – they are listening to stuff like this: “the Democrats have their people up in Alaska, right now, watching her every move, to try to find anything they can just hammer her on or make hay of, in a negative sense, and they’re obviously extremely threatened by her, and I believe rightly so; I believe there is a spiritual authority and a calling on Governor Palin that is extraordinary and I told her in no uncertain terms…. but I believe she has a national calling on her life.” Video here: http://www.talk2action.org/story/2009/7/16/152533/667
    Warning: video starts with praise of Michelle Bachmann before addressing $.Palin so have your garlic handy.

    There is not enough popcorn in the world….LOL, snort…Bwaaahaaaa. I can’t wait for the drama. Truly going to be the best yet, I’m sure.

    Indeed.

    Right now, I am somewhat speechless. I could make a joke about twittering by a twit. Or that we now get to hear a lot more from out bitter twitter quitter. But I don’t want to question her intelligence. What is there to question? I just cringe when I think of her out there in the real world, unprotected by Greta, or Ivy, or Meg. Although I am sure they will make sure she will never appear on a news network without the initials FOX. Could you imagine her doing an interview with Keith Olberman, where he would actually do follow up questions? Ugly. And I am in the process of proposing a new daily show to Comedy Central. All we would do is show her daily twitters, then make fun of them. Heck, they would probably be funny just on their own.

    Are there any plans for Screen Door Saturday yet? Is Shannyn going to have folks reporting live from the AFT party and the other one? Is CC going to be live blogging? Is there going to be a whole lot of tweeting going on? 🙂

    Great post AKM. I really liked the image. Really captured the essence of Sarah.
    It really is darn frustrating that this person has been foisted on our country.

    Hello from NC again. Please tell me this twit isn’t going to be drawing any more money from AK? If you quit your job as gov little more than mid-term, do you still get retirement and benefits? I would hate to see your state govt having to pay this know-nothing after she’s already cleaned up on your dime!

  161. ValleyIndependent says:

    Good heavens. Ivy’s tweets are as bad as her boss the twit’s tweets. Have these people no shame?

  162. ds55 says:

    Have I mentioned how glad I am that Gov. Winky quit her job?

  163. Wow! I can’t believe she thinks that this is going to help her in any way. The only good thing is that people are watching her and some are starting to wake up. I noticed on facebook that there’s poll going around where you can vote whether or not you would vote for Sarah Palin in 2012. So far 72% say no (115,000 + ).

    I get the impression that she thinks she can do whatever she wants once she quits, but she is now a public person and she can never go back to being a private citizen. The only difference once she isn’t the governor, is that she won’t really have any political power.

  164. strangelet says:

    Oh, snap. Somebody is going to have to archive all her twits for the 2012 campaign. Is there already technology to do this, or am I going to have to start following her? (Yech)

  165. Maria says:

    Great “flying from her fingertips” pic! Sarah Unplugged?

  166. ds55 says:

    I predict she will send out a bunch of anti-Obama tweets.
    I wonder if she knows we can answer her back.
    I wonder if she knows that she’s not a private citizen but a public figure, so bloggers and late-night TV hosts can still joke about her.
    I wonder if she knows leaving office will free more people to criticize her openly without fear of her backlash.

  167. Fern says:

    Anyone else think she’ll be moving her family away from Alaska?

  168. Aussie Blue Sky says:

    I just noticed that AKM’s latest Facebook entry on the right says

    “Is sitting on the shore of Hoseshoe Lake drinking …. ”

    not drinking milk, I’m guessing. 😉

    LOL! I was drinking coffee. It’s those little Blackberry keys…they get me every time! AKM

  169. Aussie Blue Sky says:

    AKM, it definitely will not be the best entertainment that money can buy – it’s completely free! She’s giving it away!

    $arah Palin will regularly go rogue, make a fool of herself, contradict herself, embarrass Alaska, etc (having it all recorded) just for our pleasure – and it’s free and practically on-demand!

    That’s my kind of entertainment service. 😉

  170. Seagull Junker Palin says:

    Oh that cartoon says it all!! What are they thinking?

  171. WakeUpAmerica says:

    Never mind. I figured it out. Wow, what a bunch of moose pucky!

  172. WakeUpAmerica says:

    How can I see Ivey Fry’s tweets without being a twitterer?

  173. Nan says:

    I love those sparkly fingers!

    Terrific post, AKM. As ever.

    Nan

  174. Lainey says:

    jmo…I think the new unshackled palin (as if AK or anybody kept her toned down) will be the same “sarah unfiltered ” that she is right now…she won’t be any smarter without restrictions…maybe more tv appearances…gaffes abound. you hit the nail on the head when you said she’ll be everyone else’s problem, not just AK.
    dare I say, thanks but no thanks.

  175. InJuneau says:

    or it it “Twits from Tweeterville”?

  176. mhrt says:

    Loved that little hand finger thing.

  177. InJuneau says:

    Yup, it’ll still be “Tweets from Twitterville”…

  178. mhrt says:

    IF, she was trying to be P/C before I am not sure I can stand how she will sound now. sarah palin you should quite now!!.

  179. justafarmer says:

    it is tiresome but we had a GREAT time liveblogging and chatting in chat tonight.
    I love my fellow mudpups and especially loved hearing in chat about the wonderful news about redwoodmuse’s sil!

  180. Erin says:

    It makes me tired just thinking about all the tweets this woman is going to type. *sigh*
