Supporters Keep Bailin’ On Palin

Despite her appearance at Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally in Washington D.C. this weekend, an overwhelming majority of Americans believe Sarah Palin is unqualified to be President of the United States. According to the new survey from Vanity Fair and CBS News’ 60 Minutes, only 1 in 4 (25 percent) of all adults think the former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska is qualified to be commander-in-chief while 60 percent say she is not. These numbers are even worse than the four previous polls that Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off has commented upon in the last few months. In essence, all of the polls strongly indicate that in 2008 a vast majority of Americans did not believe that Palin was qualified to be Vice President and since then, even a greater number (which keeps growing) believe that she is unqualified to be President.

To make matters worse, even those groups which one would consider supportive of a Palin presidency are abandoning her. By a narrow 47-40 percent margin, Republicans do feel Palin has the right stuff to be president. But self identified conservatives – constituting the segment of the GOP largely thought to most favor the former Alaska governor – are essentially split 41-40 percent on her abilities to govern the country. Most troubling of all for Palin, is that if she finds herself in a general election matchup, 3 in 5 independent voters (60 percent) don’t think Palin is qualified while only 21 percent do. Among moderates, the numbers are even worse with 70 percent reporting they lack confidence in Palin.

What could Sarah Palin have done since 2008 to so drastically destroy her status as darling of the Republican Party to become the pitiable laughing-stock that she is today? Well, let’s think about that for a moment. After losing the presidential election, she almost immediately blamed the shellacking on John McCain and his staff. Then she quit on the Alaskans that elected her by resigning as their governor after having served only half a term. In a failed attempt to derail health care reform legislation, her mythical “death panels” were exposed by the non-partisan as the “Biggest Lie of 2009”. Next, she engaged in an embarrassing and continuous public battle of words with her 19 year old would-be son-in-law. Her oil industry cheer of “Drill Baby, Drill” morphed into the disaster of “Spill Baby, Spill”. Thereafter, she aligned herself with the far-right fringe group known as the Tea Party and heartily endorsed such whack-job candidates as Rand “Get To The Back Of The Bus” Paul and Sharon “Who Needs Social Security?” Angle. And most recently she counseled the self-censoring, “n-word” spewing radio host Laura Schlessinger to “Don’t retreat. Reload”. Sarah Palin has clearly suffered from a self-imposed series of unfortunate events. She is the modern day Calamity Jane.

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

Low Rider song link:


(sung to the War song “Low Rider”)

All my friends know the poll slider
The poll slider is a little liar

The poll slider slips a little lower
Poll slider couldn’t be much slower


Poll Slider is facing defeat, yeah
Poll Slider is gonna be beat, yeah

Poll slider is outta gas now
The poll slider is on her ass

Better get a grip, better get a grip
She is not the one to be
Better get a grip, better get a grip
She’s shunned by the G.O.P.

  1. Where do u get your info on Palin? Fm Vanity Fair and 60 minutes on CBS like thats a real survey. Both of them are so far left I wouldnt believe their survey if they said dark is night and day is light, I would check it out my self. You guys (on the left) wow no crediability at all.

    • Where do you get your information? From somewhere in GlennBeckistan?

    • I believe that I have done the job of showing numerous polls from many different sources (i.e. CBS News, ABC News, CNN, The Iowa Republican, The Washington Post, Public Polling Policy of New Hampshire, Associated Press, USA Today, Gallup, and Opinion Research Corporation)all of which have revealed that the majority of Americans do not believe that Palin is qualified to be POTUS. If you believe that all of those time trusted sources are tools of the left wing (really, The Iowa Republican?)you are delusional. I challenge you to provide a recent poll from a non-partisan source that shows that a majority of Americans believe that Sarah Palin IS QUALIFIED to be POTUS. I’ll be waiting.

      • …and waiting and waiting and waiting, while rollie tries to find some ‘crediable’ sources – ha! Yeah, who would believe anyone telling them that it’s usually dark at night and light at day? (or am I missing something?) Still a bit frightening that 25% think SP is qualified.

  2. Eat Pray Love

    Going by the critics’ reviews you wouldn’t even know the grifter performed at the Beck Lolapalooza. At least she didn’t have any jokes stupid enough to warrant any serious attention. There probably won’t be any movie.

    Palin’s caustic mean girl routine-How’s that preachy churchy thing working for ya?-seems suddenly out of fashion. It might be easier to thank the troops than to thank God, but God clearly prefers talking to recovering-alcoholic men!

  3. oh duh, I get the day/night dark/light thing now. Gawd, these people make my brain hurt. Loved Wonkette’s take on GlenFest:

    • Some of the writings on this site are the most hate-filled, foul-mouthed, intolerant ramblings that I have come across.

      I thought leftists and liberals were supposed to be so tolerant, loving and all-accepting? Hypocrites.
      By actually trying to read through some posts and stories, to see all sides of the story, I usually stop part way through, offended by the narrow-minded filth and invectives, including attacks on appearance.
      Some of your staff should hold their tongues about personal appearance. It is curious that many icons on the left are physically unattractive, as well as having ugly personalities. Especially the female ones.

      • I liked this part of the response to the above email:

        And we will use these children to write “witty comments” on Wonkette, if they’re so clever, and then we’ll make a show about them on the Disney Channel, which ends with sort of a Jonestown tableau, with a two-headed toilet monster (Palin & Beck) “playing” the role of Jim Jones.

        I think that might get some play on the Discovery Channel.

  4. I am so happy that the ugly (inside and out) crazy old gym teacher reaped what she had sowed. She could have gotten her argument across by saying “N word” and not using the word and by not saying “don’t NAACP me” and “Don’t marry out of your race ” but like Michael Richards AKA “Cosmo Kramer”, she ends up the trash heap of history, a history of her own making. I am so happy that the free market AKA sponsors started to pull their ads (I guess they were exercising their free speech) and she finally realized that she was just another “run of the mill gabby” and her days were numbered. She realized that she was not as smart as she thought she was, finally! We are all adults here and we all know that we cannot control how others will respond to our comments, but it nothing to do about First Amendment rights (how exactly did the government stop her? They didn’t) and street talk and more about being held responsible for our actions and words. The first three times she used the word might not have been in anger but the last eight she was filled with hate, so good riddance.

    Palin was the one who got bent over the use of the word “Retard” (she wanted someone fired for using it once), Palin also said that the people have the right to build the Mosque in NY, but out of respect for the 9/11 families they shouldn’t, but I guess this same standard is not applicable to Laura Schlessinger. Do you see the hypocrisy? The problem with Palin is the same when she mistakenly referred to Ronald Reagan Eureka College, being in California and we all know its in Illinois, same thing, she does not fact check anything she is going to say. She is soooo Palin!

  5. I would love to see Lynnrockets write a what if satire .Sarah as President directing the CIA to get even with everyone who offended her.I dont think it would be far from the truth.

    • Sadly, frighteningly, it’s probably not far from the truth. God only knows what she’d use the resources that would be available to her for. Possible song parody – Under the Bus, maybe using the Drifters Up on the Roof?
