Sarah Palin’s Latest Babbling Rants Prove Why Liberals Should Want Her To Run For President (Video)

palin-family-brawlI know, I know – “Why are you talking about her, it’s what she wants!” Every single time I write anything concerning Sarah Palin I get a bunch of comments along those lines. As I’ve said before, in the grande scheme of politics she does matter. She has a large following and she still has a sizable amount of influence over conservative voters – especially those conservatives who are on the far right, otherwise known as “consistent primary voters.”

Personally, I’m praying that she runs for president one day. Her rambling on during a campaign would be such great entertainment for weeks, and she would stand absolutely zero chance at being elected. Yes, I said zero – I don’t care how much money is involved and how stupid you think the average voter is, she would not be elected president.

Recently she went on a couple of rants while she was out promoting her reality show. In one of these rants she went off on celebrities who criticized Chris Kyle, the subject of the movie American Sniper, and praised her “blood brother” Ted Nugent. In another she talked about the possibility of her running for president in 2016 in what was more or less just borderline gibberish.

“These celebrities that we worship who haven’t done a doggone thing to protect our Constitution or our freedom, and then you have someone like Chris Kyle out there putting his life on the line, getting rid of the bad guys before the bad guys get us,” Palin said. “And yet he’s demonized by some of those celebrities who should be appreciating the opportunity they have to do whatever they want to do. Hypocrites are the ones who are slamming Chris Kyle.”

Whether or not you agree with the criticisms some have said against Kyle (I’ve voiced my own opinion on the matter), when he wrote the book he voluntarily put himself out there publicly. And while his death was tragic, that doesn’t negate what’s said in the book and the fact that some of what’s written inside is fairly controversial. In my opinion, this was nothing more than Palin’s pathetic attempt to take a not-so-subtle shot at liberals being that she’s often equated celebrities with “evil liberalism.”

A few questions later, in a hilarious twist of irony, she called Ted Nugent her “blood brother” when discussing an episode of her show featuring the two. Nothing like going on a rant against those who she deemed “hypocritical” for criticizing Kyle when they didn’t serve in the military, while calling an admitted draft dodger and coward (among other things) your “blood brother.”

Then in a second video she was asked about 2016 and whether or not she had any intention to run.

“Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” she said.

She continued on a little more with what equated to nothing but an incoherent word salad – where she proceeded to downplay what she had just said. The general point she seemed to be trying to make (and failing miserably at it) was that she wanted the GOP primary to be a battle to bring about the best candidate.

Though it was pretty clear she wasn’t exactly a fan of Mitt Romney when his name was mentioned.

And while I know many on the left hate whenever something is written about her, I’m still not sure why. We should all want this woman to be one of the first people voters think of when they think of the GOP. Her idiocy alone is enough to push voters “toward the left.” If she ran for president, I would almost guarantee that the GOP primary debates would break ratings records.

Few people can go from singing the praises of one American hero, to embracing a draft dodger as a “blood brother,” while later claiming that she hasn’t ruled out running for president – then almost instantaneously walking back the very statement she just made.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

    I hope she runs we will be guaranteed endless laughter on a daily basis.

      I agree! While the 2008 election was a little scary because it seemed she had a valid shot at winning, it was one of the most entertaining presidential campaigns ever.

      Bill Maher will cry himself to sleep every night if she doesn’t.

    She is all into this for money. Write a book about her inevitable failure in 2016 elections, having conservative-lean groups to buy her books then resell it for cheap to make her yet another million of dollars. Her followers would be hoping that she will avoid big words. Then she would temporarily fall back into general obscurity.

    Jon Stewart would love this!

    Curse you, John McCain.

      And a pox on all their houses!

    She won’t run. She’s making money and doesn’t have to be really accountable for the crap she says and does. She didn’t even finish her term as Governor. Troopergate caused her to leave. If she cant even handles that, or an interview with Couric … I can’t imagine her finger on the button.
    I almost threw up a little there. *shudders*

  • dstatton

    She only hints at running to keep the rubes sending in their money. Ever visit a website called Conservatives for Palin? It’s a riot. I do agree that the more attention she gets, the worse conservatives look, and that’s a plus.

    What has she done to protect the constitution or our freedom? Doggone nothing that’s all. As for the Kyle debate why does she not attack the celebs on the right? Like that country western singer who other than agreeing with her opinion hasn’t done anything to protect our constitution or freedoms besides maybe write & sing some really crappy propaganda songs? I think the kyle issues are more nuanced and complicated than the current debate. Suggest those who hate snipers on principal watch saving “Private Ryan” again. Barry Pepper’s sniper character did not draw the outrage and I doubt many denigrate what his character did. I know its fiction versus reality but in a theoretical sense so is Kyle in his movie just a characterization of who the screenwriter chose to portray.
    I say let her rum. Way too much comedic material to pass up and she will never get elected, versus some one more nuanced, smarter and better able to hide his/her flaws and thus with a better chance of winning, yet being just as destructive to that constitution & freedoms as she would be. Kind of like Dicl Cheney in 2000 as VP candidate.

    damn, I just love this woman. Palin/Putin 2016

  • FortWorthTex

    I actually watched part of this speech live. I had to shut it off; it literally made me sick to my stomach.

  • Suzette Rodgers

    Keep on yuking it up. At least it will give you something to do while those of us who know Sarah can beat anyone you lefties pick, You who were stupid enough to vote for a community organizer who has put muslims in key positions in America, guess you would be alright with women being treated like dogs. You had better hope Sarah Palin runs or the beheadin could be coming to America.

    • Calvin G Suddeath

      Good god! This woman wrote the book on what it is to be an idiot

  • Mary

    I hope Hilary runs. Talk about comedy.
