Sarah Palin Defends Ted Cruz’s Stance on Obamacare By Making it All About Sarah Palin

cruz-1Well, you just had to know eventually Sarah Palin would have something to say about the push by Ted Cruz (and others) to possibly shutdown our government.  And while I know many who read this will say, “Why are you giving her attention!” — the fact of the matter is she is still a driving force behind the tea party and, in turn, the Republican party.

But even in her written defense of Ted Cruz, she somehow managed to make it all about herself.

She apparently feels that she’s basically the same person as Ted Cruz.  Sure, they’re both radical and borderline insane.  The difference is, Cruz is a very calculated individual who’s in a position of power nationally.  Palin is a shallow and downright stupid individual who’s been relegated to Fox News contributor when she’s not tweeting somewhere in the Alaskan wilderness.

Palin is simply a babbling idiot.  But she’s also a massive narcissist who makes everything all about herself.

So it comes as no shock that, in writing her op-ed defending Ted Cruz and his push to defund Obamacare by threatening a government shutdown, she had to make it all about Sarah Palin:

We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game.  The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.

Welcome to our world, Ted.  The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees).  We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.

It’s a call to follow the advice I give my daughters: Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!

I want no pity.  I need no empathy.  But use me as a barometer.  Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder.

As I said in my speech at CPAC this year, it’s time for the Senate to put itself on Cruz Control.

Ignore the peanut gallery pundits.  They’ve written my political obituary so many times, I’m practically Lazarus.

The last part actually made me laugh.  Her political career is dead.  It needs an obituary.  Outside of the tea party, no one can stand her.  If she had any political life left in her, trust me, she wouldn’t be an off and on Fox News contributor.

Palin lives life by the “me first” motto — and she loves the spotlight.  If she really had any chance at a political career to match her ego (she really wants the presidency) she’d jump on it in an instant.  But that’s the problem.  Her ego is so large that she won’t settle for smaller offices where she might actually win.

Her entire op-ed “backing” Ted Cruz was just another “me me me” attention grab where she tried to compare Cruz’s efforts to how the “liberal media” has “gone after” her.

As if any media really needs to “go after” this woman.  There’s no reason for any media personality to make up anything about her.

When covering Sarah Palin, just quote her directly.  She makes enough of a fool out of herself on her own — there’s no “bias” or “liberal spin” necessary.

But in Palin’s world, simply reporting exactly what she says is somehow “liberally biased” and asking her questions that she can’t easily answer means you’re asking “got’cha questions.”

She constantly makes herself look like the fool that she is, and if you call her out on that, you’re “out to get her.”

I just found it quite funny that even in her comments where she was supposed to be supporting Ted Cruz and his stance on Obamacare, she somehow made her entire “defense” about none other than—herself.

Just like always.

    Very true about Palin. She’s the ultimate narcissist, and mentally unstable. Fortunately, most people now recognize her for what she is.

    Nobody but us blog-heads accused her of faking the pregnancy that she did indeed fake.

    1 moment of my time.

  • Never trust a person who objects to being quoted accurately and completely.

  • janetmamajo4

    While I agree with your assessment of Palin as a narcissistic borderline crazy person, I have to take issue with you on giving her and her crazy a platform…. she is in the spotlight, because we shine the light on her… if there is no light, maybe, just maybe she’ll go away???

    • gemma liar

      I have been with great looking women ( physically) all of my adult life—-an I would “drill baby drill” palin all night!!! *( then I would make HER pay for breakfast) :))

  • Pipercat

    “We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game.”

    Ah, nothing like a whiff of Sarah-speak in the morning! Smells like… well, it doesn’t matter.

  • Mike Lawson

    Richard Nixon was brought down by anonymous sources, and the GOP, the Teabaggers and Palin have never gotten over that.

  • gemma liar

    U all are obviously JEALOUS of sarah palin,,,a GREAT American!!! she is still sexy as hell ( and I work in adult strip club industry in south FLA since 1989) and she PROVES her greatness by financially capitalizing upon the incredible stooooopidity ( hope U liked all the zeros; mirroring her IQ) of the mentally squalid regressive white trash TEA bag PARTY cretins who give her money faster than the local tax free CHURCH bake sale. A great American!! are there any of us who would NOT want to make MILLIONS sucking the money from these rightwing dinosaurs by simply knocking Obama??? I hate hate HATE rightwing lying trash but will INSTANTLY sign a FOX “news” contract to make MY millions eviscerating liberals and Obama!!! Ive been practicing this,,,tell me whatcha think: ” ITS OBAMA,,,,,HES A MUSLIM,,,,WERE ALL GONNA DIE”!!! …do U think Im ready for the FOX political team???

  • ohnoyoudoon’t

    “Shiv marks”, really? I find it rather interesting that she would use a term commonly used in the prison system. I can also see her ecstatically nodding her approval to the person that originally wrote this for her.

  • Sue Elaine Parrick

    The only time that the sound of her voice doesn’t dance on my last nerve is when I replay the Canadian Comedians prank calling her, saying it was President Sarcozy. Now THAT was funny….and also pretty much the extent of her usefulness.

    Well hopefully the government will shut down on Wednesday. People need a wake up to what they have done and the Government defaulting would be a good start to a proper recovery.
