Sarah Palin is Nothing More Than a Sad, Pathetic Has Been That Really Never Was

Sarah PalinSarah Palin is quite possibly one of the most polarizing people in politics.  Whenever I write anything about her, it undoubtedly leads to people going off about, “Why are you giving this idiot attention?  If you would ignore her she’d go away!”  And while I understand why people get sick of hearing about her nonsense, the fact is she’s still somewhat influential when it comes to conservative politics.

But my question to that is, “Why?”

What the hell is it about this woman that conservatives seek out?  Even after countless hours of political coaching following her disastrous showing in the 2008 presidential election, she still can’t give an interview without looking like a complete idiot.

Sarah Palin is really nothing more than has been that never really was.

It was clear John McCain only picked her in a desperate hope to lure some of the female vote to his side during the 2008 election.  Obama was headed toward an easy victory and “throwing a hail Mary” was pretty much the only thing McCain could do.

Now, to her credit, before that she was the governor of Alaska.  But she quit before her first term was even finished.  Not exactly someone I would look to for leadership and “getting the job done.”  She essentially went from obscurity to fame, couldn’t handle the scrutiny, then quit because it got a little too difficult for her to deal with.

Since then she’s not ran for a single public office.  She likes to portray herself as this great leader who knows everything – yet outside of her failed reality TV show (and her newest one which will surely fail as well) what the hell has she done since she quit her job as governor of Alaska?

Sure she’s been an on again, off again contributor for Fox News, but they seem to mostly keep her around to provide a ratings spike every now and then.   She’s not exactly someone they see as a “go-to” expert on any particular topic.  Mainly because she’s not an expert on anything, aside from maybe shooting wolves from a helicopter.

Honestly, what is she?  I’d say she’s a pathetic narcissist who’s bought into her own mental delusions about who she is.  Sure, she’s great at pandering to people who applaud statements that make absolutely no sense, but fooling a bunch of sheep who lack the ability to think for themselves doesn’t exactly take much intelligence – and Palin clearly lacks intelligence.

Yes she goes around and gives speeches, but on what?  She tried some sort of bus tour a few years ago that lasted I think all of four days before quitting that as well after embarrassingly reciting a completely inaccurate telling of the story of Paul Revere.

Palin could easily run for office again, and if she’s as great as she seems to think that she is, what’s holding her back?

Well, that’s simple – reality.  See, that’s the funny thing about reality, it’s real whether certain people want to believe in it or not.

In her mind Sarah Palin probably thinks she would be a wonderful president and great leader.  Though the reality is she’s one of the least popular political figures in this country.  She’s a quitter and hasn’t done anything significant in politics in nearly five years.  The honest truth is, Sarah Palin is really just a pathetic has been that really never was.

    Has anyone ever looked at the stats on gender of those who approve of her? I suspect she’s wet dream fodder for a certain age of right wing males but that most females with a brain cell would dislike her.

    She is an idiot and a disgrace to all woman. She needs to stay as a nobody. Which she has proven. She didn’t put herself there, idiots who thought her good looks and pious mentality put her on a religious pedestal that doesn’t exist and therefore neither does her clout. She doesn’t have anything to offer this country and is a fearmongering person the GOP think can get them somewhere which was proven it wouldn’t. They can’t find competent candidates.
