Sarah Palin = “Stress, Drama, Complications, Panic and Loads of Uncertainty”

This week’s episode of Republicans Eating Their Own features Meghan McCain and Sarah Palin. McCain, you might recall is the gritty and abrasive daughter of 2008 Republican presidential nominee, John McCain. Palin of course, is the former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee. You know, John McCain’s former ill-chosen BFF.

Meghan McCain and Sarah Palin are not friends. In fact, daughter McCain (in true Palin fashion) has just authored a book in which she devotes substantial time to the ill-fated McCain/Palin presidential campaign. The book is titled, “Dirty Sexy Politics” and Meghan pulls few punches. Of Palin she says,

She was not just an overnight success or even a political Cinderella story, she was a sudden, freakishly huge, full-fledged phenomenon. It seemed too much. And it seemed too easy. In my heart of hearts, I’d always hoped my father would pick Senator Joe Lieberman as his running mate.

McCain went on to say that she predicted problems on the campaign trail even before Palin joined the team and that her predictions came true to the extent that Palin was more poisonous than she could have ever predicted.

Drama was inevitable on a campaign and created almost out of thin air. Tempers were always flying, and feelings were always being hurt. There was no question that a running mate would add to the confusion and upset, but I couldn’t have predicted just how serious it was going to get. Katie Couric’s interview with her before the vice presidential debate had been disastrous. Unhappy with her performance, Palin seemed to blame the interview on the campaign. And she continued to blame other poor interviews and snafus on the campaign too. Sarah Palin. She was turning out to be somebody who leaves a wake of confusion and chaos – to the point of dizziness – wherever she went.

McCain also describes the Diva-like self-importance of Sarah Palin and her family. She discloses feelings bordering on pettiness regarding interactions with the Palin family. “I felt a joke in the air, but it was on me” McCain said in summarizing an encounter in a Republican convention makeup room.

All the chairs were taken. The stylists were busy with the Palin kids, as well as Levi. ‘Can you make time for me?’ I asked. “‘You’ll have to wait,’ the makeup artist replied. Levi, Bristol, Willow, and Piper, who was seven, needed to be styled first … ‘They’ll be getting more airtime.

McCain believes that Palin’s brand of hate-filled fear-inflicting politics will not be successful for the Republican Party. She provides the following advice for the 2010 election: “The bedrock of the Republican Party is freedom of the individual … Not hatred … A hyper-conservative candidate has no chance of winning against President Obama … the Republican party has to start being open to new people, new blood, and new ideas.

In her book, Meghan McCain has identified Sarah Palin as being a major reason why her ticket lost the 2008 election and she has also predicted that the Palin approach to politics (uber-conservatism, hate and fear mongering) will cause her to lose future elections. In short, she is calling Sarah Palin a loser. Ouch! Take that, Sarah Palin!

Pretty Woman song link:


(sung to the Roy Orbison song “Pretty Woman”)

Petty woman, cannot take the heat
Petty woman, with her Twitter tweets
Petty Woman, I don’t believe you
Can tell the truth
No other crook’s as good as you

Petty woman, that’s our Sarah P.
Petty woman, and her Glenn Beck buddy
Petty woman, and her other pal, Hannity
They all work for Fox TV

Petty woman, winks and smiles
Slutty flight attendant style
Petty woman thinks she’s “mav’ricky”
Petty woman will not say
What convention speeches pay
Petty woman speaks in Palineese

We will read you
FaceBook tonight
“Drill Baby-Baby”
You’re not too bright

Petty woman and “First Dude” guy
Built a fence that is, ten feet high
Petty woman, just go away

Joe McGinniss can still see your ways
He sees your rabid foam of hate
You’re such a sorry sight
But wait, Joe now can see
Sarah Palin’s on TV
Yeah, she’s there on Fox TV
Petty Woman

  1. Scare tactics

    John McCain wouldn’t have fared any better with the dirty and thoroughly unsexy Lieberman, so it seems unfair to blame Palin for being such an idiot. If anything, McCain should bear the blame for having made such a panicky, reckless choice.

    Meghan is absolutely right that “fear and smear” tactics will fail in the long run, but they’re working fine for now- just ask John “I’m the king of the teabaggers” McCain!

  2. The Vanity Fair article stated that the Sarah thought the Palins “weren’t good enough for America.” That’s why they needed more time in the make up and hair department–they needed to LOOK like they were. As if looks are all that matter for a Vice Presidential candidate. Speaks volumes about the McCain campaign. Heaven forbid she actually followed the advice to keep her head down, do her job as AK governor well and study up–in her delusional world, Africa is a country, not a continent, remember. Then of course she QUIT and inflicts herself on the country every single day.

    • Excerpt from the CBS Early Show TV interview with the Vanity Fair author:

      HILL: You said the most important quote in this article is, ‘we weren’t good enough for America.’ Why do you feel that’s the most important quote that you have there?

      GROSS: When Sarah Palin got back to Wasilla after the election, she was in her house. The people from the Republican Party were trying to collect the clothing that had been purchased for return. She was talking to one of her children and she was crying and she said, ‘we weren’t good enough for America. We’ll never be good enough for America.’ I think she felt so rejected by this election that what we’re seeing subsequently has been a kind of vengeance on the country for rejecting her. I think what she’s doing is plugging into a similar sense of rejection among millions of people out there who feel like they’re not good enough.

      HILL: You had a tough time, you say, getting to people who are close to Sarah Palin, let alone Sarah Palin. First, tell us about the people you did speak to who are around her, who had been close in her camps. What kind of an impression did they give you of Sarah Palin?

      GROSS: The people who’ve been closest to her describe a temper that at first I couldn’t even believe could be true. They’d tell stories about screaming fits, about throwing things. We’re talking about everybody from friends who’ve stayed with the Palins, who’ve witnessed events where Sarah and Todd will empty the pantry of canned goods, throwing them at each other until the front of the refrigerator looks like it’s been shot up by a shot gun.

      HILL: Wow.

      GROSS: Everything from that to former assistants who’ve been so tortured by Palin that, in one case, one had to quit the job, seek psychiatric counseling, and leave the state to escape Palin’s influence. Because everybody who’s worked with her has seen the way that she exacts retribution on people after they leave. They’re afraid that she’s going to get them fired from their job, try to ruin their reputations. That’s the modus operandi.

      • WOW! Ever since she made it in the spotlight away from Alaska, so many of us have had to read between all the lines to “know” this woman and her family is a very scary scenario if given any kind of power in our country.
        Now it seems all the reading between the lines is in BOLD print. Finally!

      • Hey Micky T., thanks for checking in. I bet you and I would have a lot to talk about. What do you think?

      • That is a great way of putting it all in perspective. Thanks nswfm.

      • Hey Lynnrockets,
        There is a nice bench down on the Lynnway by Red Rock that faces Boston. Hopefully on a very clear day in the future we can meet there.

    • How perceptive, Micky-T. I’m all for it.

  3. Is it just me, or is this the McCain chick kind of hot?
