Sarah Palin Joins the List of Conservatives Who Made a Fool of Themselves at CPAC

palin-cpacOh how I wish we could have CPAC once a month.  Seriously, I mean that.  It’s like how I felt about the 2012 GOP primaries.  You don’t get a better look at the idiocy of the Republican party than when Republicans are out publicly pandering to conservatives.

I just knew when I saw that Sarah Palin would be the last featured speaker at CPAC that her stupidity wouldn’t fail to disappoint.

And I was right.

Basically this was your typical Sarah Palin “you bet’cha'” kind of speech.  Lots of “folksy” sayings and endless shots at President Obama taken right out of any list of right-wing talking points you might find.

She attacked the media for dismissing the Benghazi and IRS “scandals.”  Perhaps because both have been debunked several times already?  I love how if the mainstream media won’t perpetuate these made up right-wing conspiracies, then they’re “dismissing the truth.”  No, they’re just ignoring conservative paranoia and lies.

She then attacked Obama for showing “weakness” with the crisis in Ukraine, essentially advocating for possible nuclear war by using a version of the popular (and moronic) NRA saying, “The only good thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke!”  I wonder, what would she say if both countries (good and bad) decided to just fire all their nukes toward one another at the exact same time?  In that scenario (you know, nuclear war) it won’t matter who has nukes – because we’ll all be dead.

But she had plenty of praise for Texas Senator Ted Cruz.  She applauded him for his filibuster (which wasn’t really a filibuster) to raise awareness of the “horrors of Obamacare.”

The “star” of her asinine speech was clearly her rendition of Green Eggs and Ham where she reworded parts of the story to bash President Obama and Democrats.  Am I the only one who finds it funny that a children’s book has been such a fixture for Republicans lately?  Shows you the kind of mentality these people possess.  Except most 6-year-olds I know have a little more compassion for humanity than any speaker you’ll find at CPAC. 

Palin also made it a point to remind people that Obama’s run as president is coming to an end.  And she’s right.  Slightly less than three years until his second term is finished.

But I don’t think in 2016 Palin’s going to be much happier – because that’s when Hillary Clinton will become our nation’s first female president.  Not Sarah Palin.
