THIS JUST IN: Palin Drops Below The Mendoza Line

If You're Failing And You Know it, Clap Your Hands1

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, the Mendoza Line is an informal term used in baseball for the threshold of incompetent hitting. The Mendoza Line is said to occur at .200, and when a player’s batting average falls below that level, the player is said to be below the Mendoza Line. It is often thought of as the threshold below which a player’s presence in Major League Baseball cannot be justified. The term is named for former shortstop Mario Mendoza, a flashy defensive player who struggled at the plate. Although Mendoza’s batting average was .215 lifetime, he was known as a sub-.200 hitter whose average frequently fell into the .170 to .180 range during any particular year.

Sarah Palin is now the Mario Mendoza of American politics. According to a CBS News/New York Times poll of registered voters, just 19% now have a favorable view of Palin, compared to 57% who have an unfavorable view. If a 20% approval rating is the equivalent of baseball’s .200 Mendoza Line, then this poll reveals that the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska’s “presence in Major League Politics cannot be justified.” The poll of registered voters was conducted between January 15th and the 19th.

Examiner.com reports that “at this point it is hard to imagine Palin being able to make a successful presidential run with her current numbers.  President Obama now has a job approval rating above 50% in many polls.  President Obama’s favorability numbers are often higher, as many Americans who are upset with his policies still like the President as a person.” The website goes on to say, “Palin has been introduced and now endlessly exposed to Americans.  It appears Palin exposure over the last two years has worked to her detriment when it comes to her favorability ratings.”

Gee, do you think? The self-professed media-hating Palin cannot find a media outlet upon which she is unwilling to display herself on a daily basis. Whether it be via Facebook, Twitter, guest hosting on Fox News, her un-reality TV series or her most recent dip into the waters of self-produced video speeches, Sarah Palin’s mug is everywhere at all times. And guess what? The American people are justifiably tiring of her constant negativism, combativeness, self-victimization and whining.

If her poll numbers continue to plummet during the campaign season, it is only a matter of time before the Teapublicans cut Sarah Palin from the team.

Now you Rocketeers can probably guess where this is going.

POLL-SLIDE

(sung to the TV theme of, “Rawhide”)

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Poll Slide

Keep movin’, movin’, movin’
People disapprovin’
Sarah’s not improvin’, Poll-Slide!
She cannot understand ‘em,
She hopes results are random,
Soon she’ll be in a double-wide.
There’s no way of definin’
Just why the polls declinin’, declinin’ like a massive
Landslide.

Headin’ down, movin’ fast,
Losin’ ground, ship her out,
Headin’ down, movin’ fast
Poll-Slide!
Kick her out,  shoot her down,
Send her home, push her out,
Kick her butt, fallin’ fast
Poll-Slide!

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Her eyeballs are ballin’
How come no-one’s callin’?
Poll-Slide!
It looks like stormy weather
And she’s light like a feather
She’ll be swept under by the tide.
She’ll be unemployed soon,
A wolf killin’ buffoon,
And all this resultin’ from her lies

Headin’ down, movin’ fast,
Losin’ ground, ship her out,
Headin’ down, movin’ fast
Poll-Slide!
Kick her out,  shoot her down,
Send her home, push her out,
Kick her butt, fallin’ fast
Poll-Slide!

Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’
Poll Slide

  1. Learn something new every day here. But you know I love Poll Slide!

  2. Polls don’t matter, as Palin knows all to well, no matter what she Tweets, what she posts on Facebook, or says on her favorite network Fox News, the rest of the media will print or play it ad nauseum, and Sarah thrives on it, and believe me, she will not go away. She’s like poison ivy. The more your scratch it, the worse it gets.

  3. Sarah Palin is smarter than all of this. If she had listened to this crap she would have bowed out a long time ago. Any one who believes what Sarah Palin said or any map cause a madman to kill a bunch of people. I know the congresswoman is important but so are all the others that were hurt. No one was anymore saddened than Sarah Palin. The media and the democrats want us to believe Sarah Palin is responsible. If that is the case then all those violet shows on TV are responsible for all the murders in the USA. If they are able to do this then there are a lot more stupid people that can not think for themselves. I for one don’t need the government or the media to tell me how to think. Sarah Palin is a christian that would not condone violence and never has. One person that should have been held accountable is the police sheriff. When you have an official go on the TV and say the things he a lot of people will believe because we have been taught that police don’t lie on television. When have we ever heard the police lie on TV. This guy should have to answer to someone. I did notice the sheriff received a double handshake from Obama when Obama was leaving at the airport.

    • You are making the same foolish mistake that Palin did. It is ridiculous for her (and you) to state that her sniper-sight symbols and violent rhetoric had nothing to do with inciting any actual violence, but then to contend that people’s talking about Palin’s ill-advised rhetoric will actually cause real violence. On the one hand she (and you) are saying that violent rhetoric has no consequences, but then you complain that criticism of the violent rhetoric will have violent consequences. This is an argument of pure circular reasoning.

      Additionally, I do not know what television shows you watch (although I bet you get your news from Fox), but in most of them the police lie all the time. Ever see “The Wire”, “The Commish”, “Bluebloods”, “Boomtown”, “Dexter” and “Hill Street Blues” just to name a few? There is a lot of police lying in those shows. The Sheriiff in Tucson simply told it like it is. There is too much violent rhetoric on talk radio and on political television shows. Want some examples of Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and so on, calling for murder or violence. If so, just ask and I will supply numerous examples.

      Sarah Palin may not overtly condone violence but she does so implicitly with coded language all the time. First, there is no denying that she identified Giffords by name and on the same ad she put cross-hairs over her district. She glorifies wars with Muslim nations obsessively. She uses her “reload” language constantly. Even she must believe she was possessed by evil spirits, because how else can you explain that witch-cleansing ceremony that we have all so frequently.

      Face it, Sarah Palin is more like a circus side-show freak than a serious candidate for higher office. That is why a mere 19% of voters have a favorable opinion of her.

      BTW, “double handshake”? Are you implying that the handshake was some sort of Obama symbolic message? Please do tell!

  4. The trolls must be worried – they’re out in force everywhere. You can always tell when they get worried – they renew their attacks.

    It’s okay guys, she can overcome making a fool of herself regarding the Tuscon tragedy, she can rise above her favor-ability being at the bottom of the outhouse, she can overcome Tawd’s choosing other women over her, she can overcome the criminal proceedings that are coming. Sure she can. She’s SoooperScarah. She leaps tall buildings in a single leap. She busts her way through all the doors closed against her, she believes she’s the anointed one. So all’s good. Isn’t it?

  5. Christian, bah. Why do all these people claim to be Christians in one breath and then spew out killing messages like “I want to kill Michael Moore” a la Glenn Beck in the next breath. I’m jewish, but think Jesus Christ was a really cool guy, and don’t think he would approve of this so-called Christian talk. Yes, Sarah Palin is the nouveau Christian: wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross in one hand, and a gun in the other. (h/t Sinclair Lewis for half of this quote).
