God bless Sarah Palin. And God bless her ghostwriter. Imagine trying to write for someone who can’t even speak proper English. The verbal calisthenics necessary to make it look like the piece was actually written by someone who can’t write at all. America, that takes talent.
Back to the matter at hand. Sarah Palin, the woman who single-handedly handed the White House to Democrats in 2008, quite possible the first person in American history to ever make the vice presidency relevant in a national election, has declared that the time is now ripe to impeach President Obama.
Palin’s latest gripe about the President is that he’s apparently opened the floodgates of America to all sorts of brown people. Of course, it’s not really true — immigration advocates have been quite vocal about their disappointment with the President on this issue. But far be it for Palin to use facts (well, accurate facts) when making her point.
President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights.
It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.
What is her point, you ask? Ego. It’s not clear if even Sarah Palin is daft enough to run again for the White House. She must know how badly she torpedoed the Republican Party in 2008. Then again, ignorance is a wonderful motivator.
Who’s looking out for the American workers? Who has their backs? Who fights for them?
Not your party, darlin’. I’ve always been amazed by the willingness of the GOP base to vote for politicians have none of their best interests at heart. The Republican party couldn’t care less about American workers, unless they earn 7 figures. Yet, the strategy of wooing those they don’t really care about has been decently effective for the GOP over the years (though not of late, in terms of winning the White House).
The strategy has been particularly effective in the South, where far greater problems confront the populace than flags and marriage aflame. Yet, the South is reliably in the Republican pocket, for the time being.
As Aaron Blake argues, Palin is a problem for the GOP. She gives nutty a patina of legitimacy. Not legitimacy in the sense that she somehow makes their concerns legit. But rather, she elevates nutty to national stature, and makes it harder for Republicans to claim that the pigs don’t run the farm.
