Sarah Palin Embarrasses Herself By Ranting About the ‘Government’s Zombie Apocalypse Plan’

Palin-stumpedThere’s a simple rule I follow when I run across a headline that seems too good to be true – research it before you write anything about it.  And if it seems too ridiculous to be real, it usually is.

It’s a rule Sarah Palin should have followed when she embarrassed herself (granted it’s not hard for her to do and happens quite frequently) by posting about the “zombie apocalypse” our government is apparently using tax dollars to prepare for.

Recently, Palin posted on her Facebook:

As unbelievable as it sounds, your tax dollars are funding the federal government’s Zombie Apocalypse Plan. I kid you not. (Google it; it really is the strangest thing. It’s not like government isn’t trillions in debt and wasting billions of your dollars everyday…but I digress.)

Well, perhaps it sounds unbelievable – because it is.

Apparently so many people bought into this nonsense from Palin that Politifact had to do a fact check on her post.  And, of course, they rated this ridiculous post as “False.”

What really happened was in 2011 the Center for Disease Control decided to “spice up” their annual message about preparing for real disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes and other disasters by playing up on the “zombie apocalypse” joke that was fairly big.

Essentially what they did was ask the hypothetical, “How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?” question, followed by outlining real things people should do in case of an actual realistic emergency.

Again, you would have to be quite possibly one of the most gullible people on the planet to really believe that the government was spending taxpayer dollars to prepare for a fictional attack by zombies.

Yet Sarah Palin, the tea party icon and the person many of them want to run for president, actually believed this nonsense was real and succeeded in convincing many of her followers.

Just when you think this woman’s stupidity can’t get any more laughable – all you need to do is just wait for the next time she says or does anything.

        the prior was mocking another crybaby regressive on these threads I have excoriating for months

  • Joe plumber

    Yep. Total ignorant dipshit. But I’d still like to cum on her tits!

    • TrollBaby

      Glenn Rice already did that. Google “wombshifter”

      • Cutter John

        Joe, I’m sure those soggy saggy tits are fake, just like her morals and beliefs. Remember when she wanted to ban all contraceptives because it was somehow against god along with premarital sex, but her 17 year old daughter (unmarried at that) shit out a kid and the little harlot was not stoned to death at their front door?

  • lindylou

    Sarah and Sam Wurtzelburger, the GOP ticket!

  • June Goetz Lynne

    There really isn’t much to say … she has perpetual foot in mouth disease. Thank goodness I read articles about what she says, because if I have to hear her voice, it drives me crazy!

    • Cutter John

      Ya kno!

  • letstalk12

    complete and utter idiot

  • Scott

    What do you expect from a moron?

  • Jennifer King

    Thanks Obama.

    Lol, not really, just saw the opportunity to throw that in there.

    What’s sad is that the republican party can’t be humble and say “whoops we were wrong”, well that goes for any politician really, but they’ll defend her ignorance and willing to believe anything read on the internet and try to shift the blame as to how the American people are easily confused because Obama did something.

    • Stephen Barlow

      YOu can’t even SHOW a Republican that the sky is blue and get them to admit the truth. let ALONE that they knowingly LIED!

  • Bill Baylis

    Benghazi !!!!!!!

    • gian keys flat mom

      “……………………. BENNNN–GHAZZZZZEEEEE……..”

  • TrollBaby

    Lol, I remember when that came out. It was really easy to determine that they were joking. I think Sara is just having a Mandingo man meat deficiency….someone call up former NBA Star Glenn Rice!

  • CrackerJacker

    Please… she knows her audience — too dumb and credulous to actually look it up, they’ll scream bloody murder and give $ister $arah a big payday. She may be a useless waste of space in the national discussion, but she’s a top-notch grifter.

    • gian keys flat mom

      correct——- she ( just as Limbaugh/beck/Hannity and the others) are wealthy capitalizing upon the stupidity of white trash regressives

    • Jeffrey Seleb

      You are giving her way too much credit.

    • Vermont Devil

      And I’m sure sites like Forward Progressives, TPM, etc are glad Palin is around talking garbage. It helps drive traffic to their sites.

      Maybe it’s like Inception movie, that Palin is created by a joint venture of HuffPo and FoxNews to milk money from all sides.

      • Jon Floate

        Not only her, but there is also Bachmann, Hannity, Limbaugh, Cruz, and this new media darling Congressman Gohmert and there is always Mitch McConnell. That’s off the top of my head, you could run a parody rag for a year just off of a week of these morons talking.

      • Vermont Devil

        Damn that’s some impressive comedy casting central we got going there – finding all these jokers to profit
        🙂

  • Mz Minnesota

    The worst part is – she mostly likely knows the truth – but she also knows if she spews the lie people will believe her and NOT check …this is how the GOP works….if you keep telling the lie they will believe you.

    • Alrighty then

      some, yes, but not her. She really is that stupid

  • Pauline

    What I find most annoying that mainstream media including Faux News never report the real facts when comments are proven to be false. Idiots will continue to vote for other idiots if they never hear the truth.

  • CharonPDX

    And yet – how many of her followers are themselves “doomsday preppers” who are, themselves preparing for the zombie apocalypse?

    • Luke

      Yah, except they are excited about it and call it the Second Coming.

      • PandaCat

        LOL That was funny!

  • Jimmy Reynolds

    Alan emphasizes how stupid this is, but it may be more important to consider how utterly dishonest it is. Palin is willfully misrepresenting an obvious joke in the belief that her audience is either too stupid to know the truth or (more likely) that they are fully aware of the falsehood and accept it anyway as a useful smokescreen for their real beliefs and agenda.

    • Alrighty then

      that’s just it, she’s not trying to fool ignorant people, she IS an ignorant person. She is as stupid as the people who follow her. We give her publicity and she imagines that means she’s right as opposed to the clown.

  • Carol Ann Hunigan Booher

    She is an embarrassment to this nation!

  • Carol Ann Hunigan Booher

    I think she has it backwards, i think it is the Koch an their teaparty which she is princess of that is turning people into zombies.. She is head zombie

  • Stephen Barlow

    Caribou Zombitch!

  • Exodus2011

    Why do thinking Conservatives and Independents LISTEN to Madame Steel Spine,?

    because

    *she loves America
    *has a stellar, consistently conservative, FULLY TRANSPARENT (!!!) governing record… which MATCHES her Rhetoric
    *she is an AWESOME Corruptocrat BUTTKICKER (YEAH)
    *her JUDGEMENT wrt decision-making by Obama has been CORRECT, REPEATEDLY

    and, like LTC Allen West, she has put the interests and welfare of her fellow Americans AHEAD of her own career

    Watch the DVD Documentary “The Undefeated” to get the full story concerning Gov Sarah Palin’s amazing tenure as AK Governor, from those who served with her … because her detractors in the Permanent Political Class, from both private political parties, will try and distort her record …. she can’t be bought off y’see, and is such a CORRUPTOCRAT Buttkicker! …. **__**

    • gian keys flat mom

      maybe because shes the only really sexy tea party chic

    • Thanks, Obama!

      Sure, Skippy. I can’t believe how gullible some people are. “Amazing tenure as governor”? You meanam azing half term, right? Admit it, you just lust after this attention whore. And Allen West? The prick who barely avoided court martial, sorry ass Uncle Tom Tea Party token? LOL! Pathetic.

  • gian keys flat mom

    I still want her sex———- until im done with her

  • Veritas vos Liberabit

    Sarah had attended too many Zombie jamborees.

  • FD Brian

    stupid is as stupid does

  • Jaina

    Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake.

  • Mr Smith

    WOW! Love the hatred on this discussion thread. Sign me up for Liberalism!

    • gian keys flat mom

      shall we love the stupidity or hate it?

    • regressive teaparty trash

      sorry,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, as U cannot write we cannot sign U up– plus: with valid photo IDs needed u don’t have the funds for that

    • Alrighty then

      there’s a difference in “hatred” and “laughing at a clown”

  • Well, Jesus is coming back.

    • Alrighty then

      and when he does, those who shout the loudest about following him will be the ones to attack him for having dark skin, from the middle east and the biggest liberal they ever saw….

  • Karen

    zombies eat brains, do they not?

    if any caught her, they’d starve to death

  • Bernardo_Gui47

    “Essentially what they did was ask the hypothetical, ‘How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?’ question, followed by outlining real things people should do in case of an actual realistic emergency.”

    So, they did, in fact, waste taxpayers dollars on a Zombie Apocalypse scenario, even if was a hypothetical attention-getter. Someone was paid to do that, print it, disseminate it. There are better uses for our tax money.

    • Alrighty then

      No, they paid to present methods of disaster preparedness and used humor in the presentation. Just because you are a humorless moron (if it doesn’t involve slapstick) doesn’t mean the other 50% of the nation who fall above the bell curve are.

      • Bernardo_Gui47

        Thank you for making my point. They did, in fact, do what she says. So you don’t mind spending your taxes for such wasteful and puerile methods, but how that puts you above the bell curve is debatable. Fools and their money are soon parted.

  • Jeannie Wood-Ramberg

    They eat brains…so she will be safe

  • shelly stone

    this is what happens when people don’t read….

  • Alrighty then

    guess that’s what we get when we forget that at least half the people in the world are below ‘average’ in intelligence… darn bell curve …. that lower half really, really scares me

  • Darren Dickerson

    Sarah Palin is like a trojan horse for zombies. “There’s no brain inside! Meehhhhh!” There really is a plan like this though. It’s an exercise just to make it more fun. You can’t really plan for catastrophe so why not make it fun?

  • Memo Manzo

    It seems the right wing is looking for the person who can deliver the biggest zinger as their next demi-god, so they can all stand around and say, “Uuu, Good one. That’s going sting/hurt/leave a mark.” It’s as if they think governing is simply the task of trying to shame your political opponent.

  • Tom Pryor

    She should just do a weekly podcast where she overreacts to headlines from the Onion.

  • Owen

    Hang on, there’s no problem with having a contingency for everything… even if it’s not zombies, it could be a virus that enrages people and it passed through saliva and such then it will have the same plan to follow, when they say “She’s stupid for doing it” should be saying “Smart for making plans for other applicable purposes. Rant over

    Grifters gonna grift.
