Sarah Palin Embarrassingly Uses Poll That Shows Vast Majority of Americans Disagree With Her

palin-embarrassmentAs most of us know, Sarah Palin has been one of the leading Republicans calling for President Obama’s impeachment.  And it seems Ms. Palin found “support” for her calls for impeachment in a recent CNN poll.

On Palin’s Twitter account she posted the following tweet:

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 5.19.14 AM

The link she provides is just to her Facebook page where she goes off on one of her usual pointless tangents.

But the poll she cites as “evidence” to support her claims for impeachment is this poll where only 33 percent of Americans agree with her that President Obama should be impeached.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone try to use a poll that says the vast majority of Americans are against them on an issue, to try and “prove” that they’re right about something.

Not only that, but the title of the CNN article discussing the poll is CNN/ORC Poll: Majority of Americans say no to impeachment and lawsuit.  

She’s an absolute moron.

No sane person would ever try to use a poll showing that 65% of Americans disagree with them as “evidence” that they’re on the right side of an issue.

Furthermore, according to CNN, “Anti-impeachment sentiment is roughly where it was for past presidents – 67% opposed Bill Clinton’s impeachment in September 1998, and 69% opposed impeaching George W. Bush when a few Democrats began talking about it in 2006.”

So, not only do the vast majority of Americans not support her ridiculous calls for impeachment, but past numbers show that it’s usually only the super partisans within each party who typically support calls for impeachment.  Meaning that typically, no matter what, about 33-35% of Americans will want whoever is president to be impeached.

Then to make her look even more foolish, she’s citing a poll that says 57% of Americans oppose the lawsuit House Republicans are filing against the president.  Something else she supports that most Americans oppose.

And to top it all off, when people were asked if President Obama has gone too far with using his powers as president, 55% of Americans either say he’s used them correctly, or hasn’t used them enough.  

So literally nothing in this poll backs up anything she supports.

I’m not even sure what to say.  I’ve never seen anything like it, and I’m a bit of a “poll geek.”  I’ve seen people do all kinds of things to skew or misrepresent polls, but I’ve never seen someone cite a poll trying to support their side of an issue – that overwhelmingly shows the vast majority of people actually disagree with them.

        ==========================================
        case in point: even though the scumbag obstruction repubs sent our AAA rating down VIA not voting a raise in debt ceiling; Obama gets the dubious credit. when Reagan had our economy start rolling at beginning of his 2nd term *( see: job creation) and tip o’neill was instrumental in that; republican president garners credit. (Funny how when it is reversed with Clinton rocketing economy; NEWT gets ALL the credit on regressive TV shows and lip service) Funny aint it???
        Bush and his merry men screwed us SO BAD that the last RNC get 2gether in tampa excluded him from being there as they DESPERATELY wanted 2 distance themselves from his catastrophic policies and subsequent failures

      • Charles Vincent

        you can believe what you want but congress passes budgets and controls the purse, that’s a fact.
        As to the rest of your post this happens because people do not understand how government works.

        this is due to obfuscation and diliberate misleading of people via media and well OP ED blogs like this site and the sites on the right.

      CNN’s headline: “CNN/ORC Poll: Majority say no to impeachment and lawsuit”

      Time’s headline: “Poll: One Third of Americans Want Obama Impeached”

      Same story

      Bill, which lie are you referring to? Her twitter note that “a new CNN poll reveals that one in three Americans agree with my call for” (impeachment)… How is that a lie or were you referring to something else? It seems like whether CNN said the glass is half full or Time said the glass is half empty, both are equally correct. I’m miffed. What’s the big deal? The surprising detail was that 13% of Democrats want Obama impeached.

      • Nemisis

        It’s not talking about half it is talking about a third.
        Again, as with any poll , unless a sample of a majority of the population is done, you can not say that the poll reflects the entire public sentiment. It is misleading to do so.
        What you can say is a vast majority of those polled.
        And those polled were less than 1% of 1% of the population.

      • strayaway

        But no one said it was above a third so this is a none story. If there is a story here somewhere it is that it is a growing and largest percentage to date who think Obama should be impeached. The poll is what it is. For the record, while I agree with Kucinich and Nader that Obama’s executive ordered bombing of Libya and related violations of the War Powers Act are impeachable offenses, it isn’t going to happen because too many Republicans supported all of that. Besides, an impeachment would take news coverage away from the border mess, lying officials, and other messes Obama got us into just before the 2014 election. An impeachment would be such a distraction. Besides, Senate Democrats wouldn’t follow up on it.

      • Toravici

        Your comments indicate you did not read this article…
        This is known as “trolling”.
        “Furthermore, according to CNN, “Anti-impeachment sentiment is roughly where it was for past presidents – 67% opposed Bill Clinton’s impeachment in September 1998, and 69% opposed impeaching George W. Bush when a few Democrats began talking about it in 2006.”

        “So, not only do the vast majority of Americans not support her ridiculous calls for impeachment, but past numbers show that it’s usually only the super partisans within each party who typically support calls for impeachment. Meaning that typically, no matter what, about 33-35% of Americans will want whoever is president to be impeached.”

      • strayaway

        What did I get wrong? The article reported that about a third of Americans want to impeach Obama. Was Palin statement right or wrong? She was correct.

        Did you notice the little blurb in the article “When it comes to expanding the power of the presidency, has Obama gone too far? Forty-five percent say yes, with three in 10 saying the President’s actions have been about right, and 22% saying he hasn’t gone far enough.”

        By a 2-1 margin, twice as many Americans think Obama has gone too far in his use of executive orders.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        did they ask those same ” americans” their opinions of gw bush/ bush 1/ Clinton/ Reagans usages of the same?
        or; should I say—
        where does Obama stand in numbers comparing to those presidents?
        (NOTE: I already know the absolute numbers)

      • Nemisis

        My reply was to your comment on half full vs half empty. One third is neither of the two, Your analogy made the claim for you.

        The president is not required to contact congress if he so chooses to strike with the military before he does so. The constitution is what gives the president the power, not congress. The War Powers Act is a law passed by congress that says the president must notify congress within 48 hours of use, not necessarily before and certainly not to get permission to do so.
        So no violation there.
        If you want to add in Benghazi, just stop. The GOP led congress reduced the security funding of the consulate prior to the attack. When additional funding was requested, it was denied. Didn’t you pay attention during the Benghazi Inquisitions?

        The border mess? What mess? Republican Bush penned law to prevent the auto deportation of illegals who are underage, and from countries that do not share a border with the US.
        Republicans want people to think these kids came here to steal our jobs.
        The special GOP delegate that went to Central America to fact find decided that these kids just wanted better paying jobs. however when asked where they toured they said “We mostly stayed in our hotels due to the dangers of going out.”
        Follow that? The kids…the kids…should be getting jobs at the hotels instead of coming to the US and stealing our jobs…these kids….They are not even old enough to hold a legal job in the US.

        Next, a poll that samples (1012 people) less than one one thousandth of the US population does not indicate anything. That poll alienates over 99% of America. Which means that that poll is nothing and interpreting it to indicate anything close to being a vast majority is delusional and should be criminal.

        If we were talking about a business that wanted to know how people felt about a product, they would not stop at a 1,012 person sample of 330 million potential customers and say 33% think it’s a grand product and the jump on it. Ask Mitt Romney if that would be a sound business decision.

        Finally…The last time congress wasted 80 million tax payer dollars on an Impeachment, they learned the hard ay that it doesn’t mean anything. And the congress acquitted Clinton 80 million…wasted. By the GOP.

      • strayaway

        According to the US Constitution, only Congress can declare war. According to the more relaxed War Powers Act, a President can only make acts of war when the US is threatened. According to the Charter of Nato, Nato members can use force when a Nato member has been attacked. The US was not threatened and no Nato member was attacked by Libya. I regard Benghazi, which I never brought up, as blowback from destabilizing Libya like the Islamist attack on Mali and the seizing of 200 US surface to air missiles by Islamists in Libya. Even assuming that the US was threatened by Libya, which it wasn’t, the President also failed to get the authorization of Congress after 60 days as required by the war Powers act.

        If Republicans think these kids are coming here to take jobs, they will no doubt be correct. 80% of these ‘children’ are male, 84-91% are teens, and the average age is 14 according to different polls. Half of them will be job eligible within 4 years as adults. 9M illegal aliens already hold jobs in the US. Meanwhile, Democrats hold out for extended unemployment compensation for US workers. I see a correlation if you don’t. There are other reasons of course. They live in crime ridden poverty cultures. That’s not new. What is new is that Obama has given them a lot of hope about getting freebee US amnesty. Most are trying to reunite with their relatives already living in the US presumably illegal aliens because otherwise these kids could be brought in legally for less money than coyotes charge.

        This is a standard poll. Why are you trying to say it means nothing while arguing that somehow Palin lied when she quoted the CNN poll? Are all polls similarly invalid in your mind? I’m already on record on this thread as opposing impeachment in my previous post if you read it all the way to the end.

      • strayaway

        Palin? She peaked when she ran as VP. She isn’t ivy league enough for the press. Obama is the same league as Bush though. Obama hasn’t done anything Senate Democrats will impeach or sue him for. i think he would have to join the Republican Party or take away Senate pensions before Senate Democrats would find fault.

  • fja123

    I dunno, Al, I think you’re off on this one. Granted, the poll shows support for the Pres, but all she’s stating is that 1 in 3 (33%) are in favor of impeachment; thus her headline “more open eyes to the I-word”. She’s not citing the poll as favorable, just noting the support. I’m in no way a fan of the ditz, but you’re grasping at straws here. It’s the same as those righties quoting the CDC that 1 in 5 (20%) MSM have HIV, but seem not to realize that 4 in 5 (80%) don’t. They’ll take whatever they can get to further the propaganda. It’s up to sane Americans to see thru the BS.

    • Brian Daniels

      I think you’re giving Sparklepony a little to much credit. She gets away with her crap because her fans never challenge her version of anything. I’ve heard her say the “vast majority” of Americans favor impeachment? 33% is a vast majority? Only in Exceptionalistic Real ‘Merika.

      • fja123

    • Donna Mary

      I was thinking the same thing. 1 in 3 is the same as 33%. She’s not actually lying, she’s just counting on the fact that her base supporters don’t understand basic math. She’s still an idiot, but this one time she wasn’t blatantly lying

      • Larry Berry

        “her base supporters don’t understand basic math”
        Definitely. On her fb page they are calling for her to split from the gop and form their own party, because they say the gop has gone to the far left. As crazy as that belief is, they think that if the 2 parties split the votes around 50/50 then if the smaller (extreme radical) part of the rep side of the 50%, the ones that follow her, split from that 50%….. Let’s be generous and imagine it’s say 5% that that 5% of the previous 50% can win more votes…….

    • Toravici

      Yet the article states one in three Americans are always in favor of impeaching whoever is president which means these statistics are baseline normal. Sparklepony…

    The only POLE Palin is familiar with is the one she danced on in college, she obviously has no concept of real polls. She is an embarrassment to republicans and America as a whole. 99% of the people Ive polled think she should shut the f*ck up, return home and sit on her deck and watch for Putin to invade us, after all she can see Russia from her house

      • CherMoe

        Although she didn’t say that word for word …. the whole country knows this chick isn’t playing with a full deck, and definitely doesn’t have what it takes to be in public office, ESPECIALLY in the White House. She has come up with plenty of other stupid things to say that all can be “credited” to her. She might as well have said this quote from Saturday Night Live, because it’s so “totally her” that it made it really funny. It does also show how really dumb Republicans are for putting her out there as a mouthpiece for their party. But “Faux” news always did like to make the best use of women and a display of lots of skin.

        hey micropenile oligophrenial steatopygous temulent crybaby————-
        do U really want to get into a “lexiphanic” vocabulary discussion with me? for money???

      • Lee Strickland

        Do you really think using big words makes you smart sweet pea? Common sense it seems you are lacking in dipshit. I’m not the one on here crying because of what a politician may or may not have said. That’s all you whiners do is bitch and moan about something all the time. It must suck to lead such miserable lives

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        translation:
        you just got your ass kicked
        ==================================
        OK! lets do ( not-so-) common sense: I like that!
        shall we start with comparing all federal policies ( repub VS democrat) in the past 25 yrs; and the subsequent effect that they had upon ALL americans and America as a whole nation?
        you go 1st

      • Lee Strickland

        My ass kicked? Funny I didn’t feel a damn thing. You couldn’t kick my ass here or in real life verbally or otherwise. I one phrase. The great society and it has ruined America and there’s no denying it and you can thank LBJ for it because the only thing it’s done is keep poor people poor and made them dependent on givt. It’s kept them in the govt plantation and it’s helped nobody the numbers never change they only get worse. We should be judging how well it’s worked by how many get off the govt teat instead of how many get on it. The Clinton dot com Nd housing bubbles didn’t help eiyger. If you want to place blame you can’t place it on one party alone yet both deserve it and that’s where you and I differ. It’s been policies of both parties that got us here and I’m strong enough to admit that but it seems you libs don’t want to take any blame for your politicians and that’s where you fail. Good day

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        wow– a veiled threat of physicality: so lets not dally on this: im 6’3 215 very well built lbs– NOT a ‘bad ass” but as U can see in my photo years of weight training/basketball/ baseball and surfing/scuba has me rather “in shape” in comparison to my fellow ‘man’
        ========================================= second: u ( as usual ) avoided answering an easy 2 answer direct question; so ur ass got “whupped” again by the cowardice shown and the subsequent crybaby testosterone rant U attempt to over dignify ur ass with
        NOTE: those espousing ” common sense” might actually HAVE a leg ( euphemistically stated here) to stand on when responding to any inquiry: hence U now join the regressive white trash nugatory scum which cannot engage in any expostulation
        =======================================
        please attempt to work upon thy jejune spelling

      • Lee Strickland

        You said the word ass kicked first so who’s the one full of testosterone? As for how big you are I could care less. That could be anyone in a picture but regardless you’re not as big as you think. So you’re just going to avoid the fact that You asked for policies they weren’t specific policies that I gave you but you got the gist or maybe you didn’t you’re to busy creating the legend of yourself in your own mind.

      • Lee Strickland

        I find it funny you say ass kicked and I tell you that you couldn’t do it in any such way shape or form and somehow in your feeble little mind you come up with veiled threat. LOL! You people really are scared shitless and really do want to try and twist words to fit into your whining,bitching and moaning.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        im willing to wager this: ( a) your fat ass could NEVER even touch me at hoops or baseball….wrestling? if U cannot beat me at THAT u are a puss. TRACK? wanna race me in maybe 100 or 220 or MILE? ” oh; I guess U shot put”
        weights? Im willing to bet some serious jack that ure fat ass cannot do more on the power clean and jerk( 265) and if I can ( 275 X5) out bench U u are indeed softer than charmin. my squat isn’t as it used to be 9 see: ruptured quadriceps tendon) but still do 315 X 3 ( break parallel)
        as for your photo? ” sweetness” ( see: walter payton) U are totototally as expected: white trash probably christian ( pseudo) who loves his alcohol and deerskins
        (NOTE: I am totally into your serving this great country ; especially as a marine,,,,,,,U are indeed a good american)
        =======================================
        policy specifics? GODDDDDAMNNN! where O where do I start??
        maybe how Obama has PUSHED super hard for extra housing and increased vets ability to get mental health visits ( access) an gave current soldiers far superior body armor. I will NOT eat up 50 feet of this post by listing all that Obama has done; nor will I get carried away with the destruction caused by Reagan and the bush boys– but numbers do NOT lie: that’s why the rightwing trash is so worried– Obama has turned our sinking ship around even with NO help ( see: NO HELP) from republicans in congress.
        do some TRUE homework ON YOUR OWN and then tell me how great republican policies have been in past 25 yrs.
        NOTE: heres another photo of some guy who is NOt meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

      • Lee Strickland

        Don’t shot put and baseball you v wouldn’t have a chance , football or wrestling either .at 50 years old I would hope you can our run me and you may be able to take me in basketball that’s a big msyne. Boxing you’re out classed there to do the only two things you may have me is track and basketball and like I said even at 50 the only one I would possibly place my bet on you is track . As far as drinking I never have never smoked or done any illegal drugs. As far as dwellings I’ll compare my house to just about anyone’s. Deer skins lol. Like I thought you’re clueless to jow people really sre. Nice try though junior. As far as sweetness hoes there’s only one and you ain’t him. It’s me saying you’re soft. 275 on bench isn’t even a good warm up I was squatting 400 in high school and that was 30 years ago. Could I now probably not but I would bet one every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Why? Because I hate to lose.

      • Lee Strickland

        Why would vi care about your hair or where you live nine of that impresses me in the least.i too will not fill 50 yards of page on how Obama has not turned us around but has made it worse and how Bush and Reagan both are far superior to Obama. While Republicans havect g ear faults you should take your own advice on how democrats are as much if not more responsible for America’s demise. Research real research can be your friend. See I said the difference between you and I is I readily admit Republicans have faults but dems have them too and they’ve both gotten us here.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      • Gina M. Nardoianni

        Here’s how stupid it is to try and defend Palin from what she actually DID say:

        Palin was asked in an on TV interview by Charlie Gibson what foreign policy experience she had that she could bring to the position of the vice presidency. And THIS – THIS is what Palin said:

        “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska”:

        THIS was Palin’s idea of foreign policy experience.

        Now, go ahead. Tell us how stupid we are for ridiculing her most ridiculous response to a very serious question.

        Go ahead.

      • Lee Strickland

        You can see part of Russia from part of Alaska. It better than Kerr or dirty Harry Reid can come up with . Reid’s as dumb as a rock. What about hank Johnson ask him if Guam is going to tip.over and Pelosi well forget about it den politicians say far dumber things

      • Larry Berry

        Lee Strickland ~ “You can see part of Russia from part of Alaska”

        Technically, there are uninhabited rocky areas out in the ocean still part of Alaskan territory that if you stood there way on the outskirts, you can see uninhabited areas on the outskirts of what is part of Russian territory. So if Palin treks all the way out there and waits and maybe Putin will travel out to the desolate uninhabited outskirts of Russian territory and hold up a huge banner…….

      • Point is it’s true and she never said she could see Russia from her house. You can’t make fun of her for something that is technically true. She said that Russia and the US were neighbors and if you think that is her foreign policu you might be as dumb as you try to make her out to be

      • Larry Berry

        It was her answer in response to a question about her foreign policy ability in regards to russia. So you are saying that her answer to the question had nothing to do with the question???

        That’s like me saying that I have the ability to launch a space program because I have seen a rock from the moon, and since it’s technically correct that I have seen a moon rock then I am right that that makes me qualified, and means I am smart. So you can’t make fun of someone for saying they have seen a moon rock, in answer to what qualifies them for astronautical experience, because it’s technically true that they have seen a moon rock.

        Context is very important and when it is a response to an actual question, then what the question refers to matters.

      • Dud you watch the whole interview or what was cherry picked from it? Have you kept up with her stance on foreign policy? I doubt it’s yes to either one and even if that is eh she said and meant it …it’s still superior to OBlunder . He is in way over his head that’s why he runs from everything that’s going on

      • COURIC: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign-policy experience. What did you mean by that?

        PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land — boundary that we have with — Canada. It, it’s funny that a comment like that was — kind of made to cari — I don’t know. You know. Reporters —

        COURIC: Mocked?

        PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that’s the word, yeah.

        COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.

        PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our— our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They’re in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia—

        COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

        PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We— we do— it’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where— where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is— from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to— to our state. Maybe she doesn’t explain it perfectly but I think you get what she’s saying. She has to deal with Russia all the time as Governor because of the proximity and that’s where they fly. I am sure there is much more to her foreign policy views and you could probably gain a better understanding if you researched instead of going off of one interview. Should we hold every politician to the standard of 1 interview?

      • Lee Strickland

        I don’t think she meant that as a foreign policy and there’s probably more to the interview. It’s obvious our current admin has no clue about foreign policy

      • William Fite

        d you my friend are lying. Here is what Charlie Gibson asked.

        interviewer Charles Gibson asked her what insight she had gained from living so close to Russia, and she responded: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska”:

      • Altreg01

        Who in their right mind would DEFEND Sarah Dumb as a Box of Rocks Palin. Any sane person left or right would distance themselves from her…you betcha.Im embarassed to call her a fellow American and you defend her. smh

      • Lee Strickland

        Nor defending her in defending the truth . It’s much easier to defend a few of her comments than it is anyone Ine current administration and that’s a fact. Tell me dud Guam tip over yet like hank Johnson thought.? I won’t even get started on biden, Pelosi, jarrett, Jackson lee, among many others who say things so stupid it would make a monkey shrug and say wtf .

      • Nemisis

        I contend that Russia is still holding a sign with Nelson saying “Ha Ha”.

        You can actually see Russia from Alaska.
        That does not give one the ability to wade in international affairs.

        As for foreign policies of this administration they are light years ahead of Reagan and Bush and Bush combined. Hell, even Carter didn’t screw this country as hard as any of those three.

      • Lee Strickland

        did I miss anything?

      • Lee Strickland

        So you think that is a hateful message? It’s not just private enterprise and I am sure that you don’t have a true meaning of conservative values just you skewed delusions you’ve picked up from the MSM

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        define conservative values
        ==================================
        we will explore ‘ smaller ” govt right after that

      • Lee Strickland

        You define them. You seem to think you know what they are . List them and then I will correct them. Smaller govt Is needed. It certainly doesn’t need to be bigger. Only people who want it bigger are one who need it for a crutch or ones who think govt knows better what’s needed for them than they do themselves. Hot programs are a disaster and you want to give them more control?

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        wrong answer kreskin— I am allowing U 2 edify me with these sterling “values” as im certainly NOT as smart as U are
        –you do NOT have 2 be erudite here– just lay out the basics which “conservatives” agree upon

      • Altreg01

        There are plenty of rational clear thinking republicans and conservatives out there. Unfortunately their party has been hijacked by the likes of this ass clown, Teddy Cruz, Rick Perry, Turd Nugent, etc. I would never paint the republican party in a broad stroke based on the actions of a few, but unfortunately the saner arm of the party refuses to distance themselves from these idiots. The emergence of the Tea PArty is the worst thing to happen to the repubican party and America as a whole. Too bad this is politics and for better or worse the repubican party will stand by their snotty little breathen because they play for the same “team”

      • Nemisis

        Agreed.

  • v2787

    Let me try to explain this to you slowly, Sarah, so perhaps you can understand: when one in three Americans agree with your call for impeachment of the President (which is a ludicrous proposition in and of itself, by the way), that means two of three Americans DON’T agree with you. That means you’re voted off the island, you imbecilic twit. Unlike some people who quit their office halfway through their term because they can’t hack it, President Obama is actually getting things done in a competent and professional manner to benefit the people. Go away, Sarah–you’re annoying, and no one with half a brain takes you seriously.

    • Toravici

      Better yet, 1 in 3 Americans are ALWAYS in favor of impeachment. These stats illustrate it’s business as usual.

  • MrRibbert

    If her brains were dynamite, she wouldn’t have enough to blow her nose.

  • Eg Kbbs

    Is that Sarah Palin or Michael Palin (cow-tapult and all) ?

  • William Fite

    Apparently Allen is to ignorant or not understanding what she said. She NEVER said a majority of Americans agree with her and she never mentions the lawsuit on her post. She plainly states, what any intelligent person could see, that 1 of 3 agree. Anyone with simple math knows that is not a majority. And for Allen to have to explain that to the liberals who read his blog goes to prove how illiterate he believes the left are on his site.

    • Larry Berry

      “but past numbers show that it’s usually only the super partisans within each party who typically support calls for impeachment. Meaning that typically, no matter what, about 33-35% of Americans will want whoever is president to be impeached.”

  • Cynthia Mooy

    She’s no better at math than she is at history. Or anything else requiring intelligence.

    • William Fite

      Now you are showing the intelligence you seem to be lacking. She was right with her numbers. Apparently you did not understand what she was saying about the numbers.

      • Cynthia Mooy

        Y’know, you’re correct. She had the numbers right; and I did not read the entire
        article and dashed off something when I should not have. Flippant, at that.

        My objection is with her spin of the statistics, just more of her swirling musings.
        My problem with her is that she has no
        business having a national platform, for which I will never forgive John McCain (and expect nothing less from Faux). And she rarely gets history right.

        Let’s not fite, Bill. She’s just not worth it.

  • Eric VanSickle

    Mrs. Palin, I think you should really, really get out of the public sphere. If you try to use a poll that shows you’re wrong to try to prove you’re right, then you are beyond bat-s–t crazy, you’re certifiable.

  • angryspittle

    This worn out tampon depository doesn’t have the brains Gawd gave a fork.

  • Bill Rubin

    The low/wrong information GOTP voters don’t bother to read anything, anyway–they just listen to Palin, Hannity, Limbaugh, and their fundamentalist pastors to know what is right and true in the world. I give you Bobby Jindal’s “party of stupid” served with no sarcasm…

  • Jess Manuel

    Hustler is calling Ms. Palin. They want some sick, idiotic bitch to pose for them.

  • Destin Coleman

    She doesn’t care. She knows full well that none of her supporters will ever bother to fact check her.

  • Destin Coleman

    I can’t believe I’m defending Palin, but, she merely said 1 in 3 Americans support impeachment, which equals 33%; so, in this specific case she was right.

  • Lamine Elabed

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      daft flat liar

  • exmotogo

    I mean, to be fair, she didn’t actually say a majority of Americans agreed with her… she said one in three. Which, according to the poll, is accurate. Not that I agree with her or anything but… out of all the stupid things she’s said, this isn’t really all that dumb.

  • Jennifer Elisabeth

    Could you please just…stop…talking…about…Palin? Please?

  • bubba

    yes…. Sarah is one of those folks who think five out of every four people agree with her…..

  • Sid Schwab

    This article is a little weird. She said “one in three” which is what the poll, indeed, says. I find Sarah Palin to be a national embarrassment, and the last thing I’d do is defend her in any way, unlike the right-wing commenters on that bizarre speech she gave the other day. But I don’t get why this particular comment of hers, which might in fact be the only time she said anything remotely defensible, is the subject of this post.

    Not So Smart: Think Progress Bites On Bachmann Satire As Real

    By Tim Graham | July 28, 2014 | 07:52

    The Think Progress blog finds retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann to be a very major enemy of “progress.” Their willingness to believe anything about her came back to bite them. They treated as real news an obvious satire that  Bachmann proposed the idea of “Americanization Facilities” where the illegal-immigrant children “would be put to work to pay off the costs of their past, present and futures care.”

    The Raw Story blog made excuses, as the lefty blogs Daily Kos and Crooks and Liars also couldn’t tell their fantasy from reality. Their headline: “Crazy racist Bachmann story so believable liberal websites fall for parody.” Any of these blogs could have simply Googled for “KCTV” and discovered they are channel 5 in Kansas City.

    Paul Spross’s Think Progress item had “CORRECTION” imposed, and the words “The news site KCTV7 News is a parody. Rep. Bachmann (R-MN) never made the statement. We sincerely regret the error.” Spross totally bought the idea that Bachmann would think every child should learn English and then work half the day:

    When pressed by conservative radio host Jason Lewis about what life would be like in the camps, Bachmann elaborated that the purpose would also be to inculcate the children into English-speaking American culture. “Well, we’d of course want these facilities to be ideal, you know, for the children to work and learn,” Bachmann continued. “They’d spend half of their day working, and the other half learning what every child should learn, and that’s English, you know, English and American history. And as soon as they learn English with some degree of fluency, they can attend local schools, maybe with a voucher program, or something like that. And then they could work when they aren’t in school.”

    This ending paragraph of satire summed up what leftists are willing to believe:

    “She wants to create Republican indoctrination camps and force these poor children into lives of indentured servitude,” posits documentarian and activist Jose Antonio Vargas. “She’s talking about labor camps where we raise an army of future Republican voters, and work them like slaves until they get old enough to possibly deport, if it comes to that. No one should be taking anything this woman says seriously.”

    No one should be taking what these leftist sites say seriiously if they’re unwilling to do a little elementary fact-checking. Karoli at Crooks and Liars confessed: “UPDATE: It appears we were duped and this story is from a satire site. We apologize for the error.” And: “Yeah, I got pwned. How sad is it that it was just this side of realistic enough to believe in the first place. When you have a reputation for making outrageous and ridiculous comments, it becomes easier and easier to believe something that should have been dismissed out of hand.”

    Daily Kos and “HarpboyAK’ hasn’t acknowledged any error as of Monday morning.

      wow! I guess that explains her inability to create and promote any legislation which can help ALL americans,,,,not just wealthy white religious scumbags

  • Sitara12006

    Obviously she had problems with percents in school. And she is one of those nuts who believe that if more people are against them, it must mean they are right. Weird reasoning and to think at one time people thought she might be a good VP

  • georgiegirls

    She is a piece of work, that’s for sure!

    Typical Reich Wing Joseph Goebbels “Propaganda & Spin”. Where “War is Peace”. “Love is Hate”, “Lies are Facts” you know your typical 6-O’Clock News Broadcast. Only the mainstream corporate media and the Palinista would support this spin. “1 in 3 Americans agree with her”. Now that facts about that statement are “By a margin of 2 to 1 most Americans disagree with the Palinista”. Her ignorance only feeds the TEAtards that swallow her lies, Hook Line and Sinker. The ignorance among their Ilk is absolutely amazing.

    I never defend Palin, but I think her false belief is that those polls will be/are RISING in favor of because of her. When I doubt they are rising at all and probably going down for her.

    95% of Americans have no idea what impeachment is. Sarah Palin is likely not a member of the 5%.

  • Anton Taftinni

    What’s next is to wait and see if she publicly admits she’s wrong and changes her view as a truly un-biased politician should. I’d like to think she would do that. Not that I live in Alaska.

    You know what I love about this? It is a prime example of how wording can change perception. One in three is 33%, but one in three can be perceived as sounding more impressive. (Kind of like ads that say four out of five dentists recommend something, it just doesn’t sound as impressive if you say 80% of dentists.) If you’re already someone that gives much credit to what she says it at least sounds like there’s a good amount of Americans that agree. “Gee, one in three people, every third person I see must agree!” Saying 33% doesn’t sound quite as impressive. I find it interesting how wording can change perceptions.

  • BadKitty

    The poll does agree with her claim that one in three Americans support impeachment. Maybe she doesn’t know that one in three is not a vast majority.

  • BobLoblaw

    Math is hard.

  • Mea

    I suppose if you’re used to seeing support in the teens that the 30s would seem like a bragging point. Are we sure that’s not her point? That support is growing? She’s an idiot, but context is everything.
