Now I’ve made it pretty clear that I am by no means a Sarah Palin fan. While some of the things I’ve said about her have clearly been hyperbole, my genuine disdain for her is very real. My honest opinion, without any kind of political bias whatsoever behind it, is that she’s a raving narcissist who has a desperate need to be the center of attention.
And I genuinely just don’t think she’s very intelligent.
All that being said, she’s been acting extremely bizarre lately. Even for her.
I first noticed it in a speech she gave in Denver, Colorado a few weeks back. She almost seemed intoxicated, or at least on something. She was just randomly blabbering on in an even more erratic way than usual.
Just watch the first few minutes of her speech starting at 3:55 in the video below:
While she often comes off irrational and ridiculous, in this particular speech she just seemed much more “off” than usual.
At one point she goes off on some rant about “fat cats” and Obama rubbing purring kitten bellies. It’s really just… odd.
Then I recently watched another video where she responded to a speech Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren gave at the Netroots Nation convention. During that speech Senator Warren hit on an array of topics such as immigration and income inequality.
Warren also touched on the current battle many fast food workers are fighting in their push to be paid better wages from their employers.
This apparently motivated Palin to release a video in response to Warren’s comments.
The first bizarre thing about this video is the timing. This is a speech Warren gave nearly a month ago. Typically when you issue a response to a speech such as this, you do so pretty immediately. And if you don’t notice it until a month later, you just let it go.
But even the odd timing of the video isn’t nearly as strange as Palin’s response to the video itself.
Here, take a look courtesy of the Sarah Palin Channel:
Normally I might type out some of the transcript of the speech for those who weren’t able to watch it, but I can’t. It’s that erratic.
She just bounces around from one thing to the next, rambling off random words – with an awkward pause here and there, often not even finishing her current sentence before starting another one.
When people see another person acting strangely peculiar, often they’ll joke and say something like, “Wow, they must be on something.”
And that’s exactly what I said after watching each one of these videos.
I’ve seen plenty of Sarah Palin’s speeches throughout the years, but I’ve never seen her as incoherent and scatterbrained as this.
And that’s saying something considering this is Sarah Palin we’re talking about. Easily one of the most ridiculous conservative personalities this country has ever seen.
