What Happens When Sarah Palin’s Teleprompter Breaks

|| By FITSNEWS || Moments after expressing her serious interest in a campaign for the presidency (of the United States, not the Alaska Tea Party), former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin delivered an address to the Iowa Freedom Summit.

How’d it go?

Not exceedingly well … especially after Palin’s Teleprompter reportedly froze mid-speech.

Palin was dishing out the red meat in heaping handfuls to the early-voting faithful in Iowa – discussing her views on energy issues and “this subjective income gap that we’re supposed to be obsessed with right now.”

(A.k.a. this).

“No … we get on offense and we drive in solutions – and we be bold,” Palin said.

Huh? “We be bold?”

Ummmm …

“Things must change for this cover … for our government,” Palin continued.  “Look at it.  It isn’t too big to fail.  It’s too big to succeed!  It’s too big to succeed, so we can afford no retreads … or nothing will change with the same people and same policies that got us … into this, this status quo.  Another Latin word, status quo, and it stands for, ‘Man, the middle-class everyday Americans are really gettin’ taken for a ride.’”

Uhhhhh …

“That’s status quo, and GOP leaders, by the way … y’know the man can only ride ya when your back is bent,” Palin added.  “So strengthen it.  Then the man can’t ride ya, America won’t be taken for a ride, because so much is at stake and we can’t afford politicians playing games like nothing more is at stake than, oh, maybe just the next standing of theirs in the next election.”

Look, we agree.  GOP retreads and their status quo policies are absolutely screwing over the middle class (hence our focus on that “subjective income gap,” among other fundamental injustices in the system).  So Palin is absolutely correct to rail on the politicians perpetuating these failed policies.

But come on, girlfriend … at least sound like you’ve got a clue.

The fun starts right around the 28:00 mark …

(Click to play)

(Vid: Via)

“Palin had a chance (several chances, actually) to emerge as a substantive figure on the national political scene … and didn’t.” we wrote last summer.

Earlier this week we added that we didn’t “see the 50-year-old’s prospective 2016 presidential bid as doing anything to change that perceived lack of gravitas,” which appears to be especially true when her Teleprompter malfunctions.

Palin is correct that “Republicans” don’t need to nominate a retread … but they don’t need to nominate a retard either.

I did a photoshopped version of that pic, with a fart sound effect.

Kelley’s hot, though. She’d be a far better candidate than Palin. That photo would be be out there, bigtime, in an attempt to hurt her, but probably would not.

SCYankee99! January 27, 2015 at 8:27 pm

she’s just blowing you a kiss…

Jonny Logic January 27, 2015 at 4:46 pm

She should be the party’s nominee. She is the perfect embodiment of a party that has done absolutely nothing for this country. Republicans used to at least accidently benefit those in the 99%, but now they literally provide nothing except rhetoric and the occasional tax benefit for the wealthy.

I'm High January 27, 2015 at 4:50 pm

This is performance art at it’s finest. The Sarah Palin character will be remembered like Mark Twain a hundred years from now.

Gregory Geddings January 27, 2015 at 5:01 pm

Except that Mark Twain was a creative genius and Sarah Palin is a blubbering moron.

I don’t have a “Mom”. I’m a product of a gay household, but you’re right, my gay Dad did call you “Studfinder”.

I’m living the Progressive dream.

Yes, you are high and exceptionally inept in phrasing your initial comment to appear as if you are anything but a nitwit.

OK? lol. Don’t get all butt hurt. Don’t blame your lack of compression on my phrasing. You a little dim, it’s OK ;-)

FastEddy23 January 27, 2015 at 9:59 pm

Yes … And she will be remembered more than Al Sharpened, Jesu Jackson, what’s her face Washermen-Shults, Meshelle O. Brama … and Clyde Barrow.

Rocky January 27, 2015 at 10:59 pm

Except that Washermen-Shults gets re-elected and is likely to beat Rubio for the Senate seat. Sarah couldn’t beat a one-legged cat in a wrestling match in a butter bath – but it would be fun to watch. I wonder if she’d call it buttered, or margarinized.

guest January 28, 2015 at 7:19 am

You know about as much about politics as you do the economy.
Wasserman-Slut has as much chance of defeating Rubio as Fitzgerald did of defeating Kasich in Ohio.

Buz Martin January 28, 2015 at 9:39 am

“We be bold” is awkward phrasing that a speech writer would never have written for her. But it is not grammatically incorrect. It wasn’t meant as “we are bold”, but as “we must be bold”, with the “must” understood. Um. Not understood well enough, obviously. Still sounded dumb and reads dumb. But what about those tits, huh?

sparklecity January 28, 2015 at 11:58 am

Yep, that’s a first class front end job – kinda like Demi Moore in “Striptease’

Demi got her money’s worth fer sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tits or GTFO! January 27, 2015 at 4:51 pm

Yea, ok…but look at those tits!

That’s the reason she should lead the GOP right there.

Buz Martin January 28, 2015 at 9:29 am

She may have spoken gibberish, but talking about being ridden by the man, with those tits sticking out there like that … well, lots of guys liked the speech anyway. I like her better with the sound off. She does not know how to use a microphone. Won’t let it do the heavy lifting, seems to think she has to shout her message in that shrill voice. Bring the voice down an octave, speak normally but decisively, and she’s on the mark. Still talking mostly bullhit, but it’s more effective.

If I were her handler, I’d get her to use a hand-held. Unconventional, but hey, she’s supposed to be all mavericky. I’d have her practice with something else, though. Let’s call it an organic hand-held. Haw!

(She deserves no better than this, so I make no apologies for any of the above.)

southmauldin January 27, 2015 at 5:01 pm

I remember her making fun of Obama’s teleprompter. At least he can improvise, while she does, uh, this. The fact that she received a standing ovation when finished shows you all you need to know about the crowd. She’s half a step above a televangelist at this point.

Didn’t she criticize Obama for being Mr. Teleprompter? That he couldn’t really think without one.

Remember when she was the fucking Vice Presidential candidate? What in the world was McCain thinking. I mean she had millions of people hanging on every word and was a force for real ‘Muricans. It shows just how fucked our country is that this total and complete imbecile could be the VP pick let alone manage a local 7-11.

novatom January 29, 2015 at 9:23 am

It least it didn’t require a decision from the Supreme Court. And frankly all this BS about Obama being a “community organizer” is just that. A community organizer works at the grass roots level to build support for issues and solve real problems. They actually have daily contact with the “real people” (not my words, the GOP’s) That’s a plus in my book.

John Boy January 27, 2015 at 5:59 pm

Seriously, what the fuck was McCain thinking allowing this dumb shit stick to ride the national circuit? I was hoping she’d just disappear, but he’ll no, people like Fits, Fox, and even the Liberal media keep throwing her bones. Well, now the idiot has presidential designs…if only we would have ignored her. At least she’s good a comedy, huh?

I don’t see how McCain can take himself seriously after picking Palin.
He should have slithered off to one of his homes after that…or, returned to his old lounge lizard ways.

Manray9 January 28, 2015 at 11:15 am

McCain had credibility with me until the selection of Palin. That act was so desperate and so irresponsible that he has forfeited the right to be taken seriously on national issues.

sparklecity January 28, 2015 at 11:52 am

Sadly I agree.
i supported him (financially & risked being arrested for being on a traffic island holding a campaign sign) when he was in the primary against Bush II here in SC back in 2000 and at the start of his second try at the White House till he picked her crazy ass.
i did not vote for him because of her crazy ass (even if she is a MILF).

Bible Thumper January 27, 2015 at 10:48 pm

You don’t know what you’re talking about. Palin is a multi million dollar brand. She’s an industry. Paris Hilton was a flash in the pan in comparison. She is bigger than Honey Boo boo. The only one whose got her beat is Kim Kardashian.

guest January 28, 2015 at 7:12 am

Biden? The plagiarizing bigot that had part of his brain removed? Now we add Hillary to the mix after she had her ‘head injury’? What a pair.They both belong in an assisted living facility yet they want to be President.

John Boy January 28, 2015 at 12:12 pm

You so funny…”Feb 13, 2014 – Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is once again facing plagiarism allegations — this time regarding a suit he filed earlier this week against …”

Now as for head injuries: Reagan did pretty well considering he didn’t know who or where he was in office.

Troll, Troll, Troll your boat…

Alzheimer’s can rob someone of their mind-not their heart and soul.

May have seemed a bit of a ramble, but in one of the “strange” remarks she was actually referring to a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. She just delivered it out of any context:
“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.”

Rocky January 28, 2015 at 9:29 am

Sarah’s typical speech – As I look out over our country, we see the threats this President has brought to our shores, our open borders, Zales is having a sale and the man is on my back, back on my man, stiffen up, I say, to those who seek to steal our liberties, the founding fathers, those valient men, who road horses, they knew the value of a Ruble, and drilled for oil in Cape Cod, thank you, and let’s not forget, uhm, coffee with cream is good.

Manray9 January 28, 2015 at 11:13 am

All Americans should thank John McCain who, in his desperation to salvage his hopeless presidential campaign, brought this dolt to the national scene. Late night comics should be especially thankful. They should get together and create the “John McCain Award” to give each year to the greatest bumbling ass brought to comedic glory in the world of politics or government. Past winners could have been: Anthony Wiener, Mark Sanford, and Larry (Wide Stance) Craig.

Perhaps some day soon, the people will come to recognize the left / right paradigm is an artificial construct, specifically designed by the powers that be to keep us squabbling amongst ourselves while they rape and pillage with impunity.

If you doubt this, all you have to do is look at the last five or six presidents and their actions. Each one, regardless of their “side of the aisle” has brought us inexorably closer to a totalitarian government. Obama, the purported “constitutional scholar” gave me some hope for about fifteen minutes. Until he filled his cabinet with bankers. And then, instead of repealing the totalitarian map, the unconstitutional “Patriot Act,” he proceeded to extend and enhance it.

Until the people recognize this trend en masse and move to stop it, totalitarianism is where we are headed.

Unfortunately, I doubt America can be pulled away from its tailgating, ballgames and reality shows long enough to figure out they are chattel. Quite frankly, it saddens me to no end, to be awake in a sleeping world.
