Whitman Questions Palin’s Motives

The Hill reports that “New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R) said Sunday that Sarah Palin can’t win a nationwide run for the White House, and pointed to the fact that the former Alaska governor left mid-term as an impediment to her support.” Whitman appeared on CNN‘s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” and also said that although Palin could energize the base of the  Republican Party, “the base isn’t big enough. I don’t think she’ll win nationwide. You’ve got to start competing for the center. And so far, I haven’t seen a lot of outreach on the part of Sarah Palin for that.” Whitman is now the umpteenth Republican that apparently believes Palin is unqualified for the presidency.

To add insult to injury, the former two term Governor of New Jersey critically questioned the motivation of the ex-quitting, former half-term Governor of Alaska. Whitman broadsided Palin by saying,

“If she were the Republican candidate she’d have to show me a lot more than I’ve seen thus far as far as an understanding of the depth and the complexity of the issues that we face. I mean, she was a governor, but the fact that she left office before even completing her first term is — that’s just not an attitude that I think is necessarily in the best interest of your constituents — rather what’s in your best interests.”

Finally, someone has come out and called it like it is. In short Whitman said that Palin is selfish and more concerned with her own self-interests than those of her constituents. That seems perfectly obvious in light of Palin’s pursuits since quitting on the people of Alaska, but Whitman may be the first member of the GOP who has dared to say it publicly. The countdown now begins. How long will it be before Sarah Palin lashes back at Whitman via either Facebook or Twitter?

In honor of the troops, please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along to today’s holiday song parody.

Here Comes Santa Claus song link:


(sung to the Christmas song “Here Comes Santa Claus”)

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
Basking in her fame
No education, a fool without peer
Could she be more lame?
Sarah’s singing words so stinging
You can tell she’s not bright
She keeps squawking that she’s the player
That dominates the far right

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
A “Calamity Jane”
A big windbag that’s filled with noise
Describes the Palin name
Simple language she does mangle
She never gets it quite right
So jump in bed and cover your head
Cuz Sarah P. comes tonight!

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
She’s an unemployed dame
She doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor
She’ll fleece you just the same
Sarah P. never tends her children
And she thinks that’s alright
As long as her kids are not queer
Who cares where they sleep tonight!

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
Playing Sarah P. games
When she misspeaks and then gets called out
It’s the media she blames
Sean Hannity she will call
She thinks he can make it right
But let’s give thanks to the Lord above
She’s not on Fox News tonight!
