Run Palin run. Pretty please. With sugar on top.January 24, 2015 at 1:44 pm #5830mike_kolbParticipant
oh yeah… it’d be worth it for her to run just so we can watch some of her goofball interviews again 🙂January 24, 2015 at 2:04 pm #5832NoPartyParticipant
Maybe a HUGE loss to anyone else running against her would knock her a couple pegs down and we won’t hear from her again until FAUXNews needs another new show.January 26, 2015 at 1:45 pm #5872AmusParticipant
Palin speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit panned as “meandering” and “incoherent” by Republicans.
Particularly amusing is that the speech became “meandering” and “incoherent” after the teleprompter failed.
Something that Conservatives like to hang on Obama.January 27, 2015 at 2:52 pm #5893VitalogyParticipant
“Palin was a sad story Saturday,” added conservative Iowa radio talker Sam Clovis. “With every speech she gives, she gets worse and worse.”
Conservative columnist Byron York called the speech “quite petty, and yet the complaining took half of Palin’s allotted time.” TV commentator and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough deemed it, simply, a “tragedy.”
Palin isn’t accustomed to this kind of response from her fellow Republicans. She is a star of the highest order in conservative circles, after all.
In the 33-minute speech (watch video below), Palin rambled on about various personal subjects, including a recent photograph of her son standing on the family’s dog that attracted media criticism. “Screw the left in Hollywood!” she bellowed at one point, responding to attacks on the hit Clint Eastwood movie “American Sniper.” She called President Obama an “overgrown little boy who is acting kinda spoiled.” She also attacked Democratic Party front-runner Hillary Clinton — and her age: “is Hillary a New Democrat, or an old one?” Rumors swirled that the Tele-Prompter had died early on in the speech, forcing her to ad-lib.
“This is who she is,” former McCain/Palin 2008 aide Nicolle Wallace told MSNBC, referring to the speech. “This, to me, is evidence that she has finally shed every last one of those ‘annoying’ handlers.”
Needless to say, conservative insiders aren’t the only ones offering criticism. Jeb Lund, a columnist at The Guardian, wrote that listening to any Palin speech “is like being taped to a chair with conservative bumper stickers and having gimmick coffee mugs thrown at you.” He added:
“Catchphrases abound — some six-years-old and counting — held together only by the fact that Palin is saying them. Moose chili. Mama grizzlies. Don’t retreat, reload. Hopey-changey. Bill Ayers. Benghazi. Vladimir Putin. Lipstick on a pig. They’re laugh lines without thought, unlinked by a program or even syllogism.”
He closed: “Even by Palin’s heroic standards, [the Des Moines speech] was a disaster.”
