Palin Didn't "Electrify" Her Party...

Not this......BUT THIS!


It seems that Sarah Palin intends to stay in Washington for quite a while, considering all of the excess baggage she's lugging with her: and they amount to lies and distortions BEFORE she could take office! "Electrified" Republicans are looking more like sheep being led to the slaughter, or - not to mix metaphors - more like criminals being led to the electric chair.

Unfortunately, this electrocution is comically entertaining to some people: if Palin is allowed to get away with all of the "shocks" she's given to the people of Alaska and the nation, there are way too many countries who will be laughing their asses off - and not all of them our enemies either! (Of course, England will be, more correctly, laughing it's arse off).

It is unfortunate as well that Palin seems to suffer from a particular malady called "Bush's disease" wherein she suffers delusions of "truthiness" in everything she says. She also thinks that people besides Republicans living in single-wides will discard critics as "jealous," "misogynistic" or "un-American."

Perhaps the one note that Sarah Palin inadvertantly struck in her speech (and in her career) is one of hypocrisy: e.g., she claims to be a compassionate "mom" while trying to annihilate the polar bear population. Also, she campaigned for Wasilla mayorship on fiscal responsibility and left the office - and Wasilla - $20 million in debt. She crowed about selling Alaska's gubernatorial jet only after she had her office in Wasilla redecorated three times.

So let's look at "electrfying" shocks she has given people up to date (there may be more, so just consider this a work in progress):
