Wonkette has another Fartknocker report about the latest offering from Palin’s website that she calls a TV channel.
This week’s installment of The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented By Fartknocker is a little light on content, mostly because the Sarah Palin Channel is a little light on content — 80 percent of last week’s posts were just recycled clips from Sarah Palin’s Alaska.
Palin is answering viewer’s questions…
…See if you can figure out which McCain-Palin senior campaign adviser she might be thinking of at the end of this section, time’s up, it is probably-definitely Steve Schmidt!
This is what she had to say.
Sometimes you have good candidates but they have GOP establishment, smooth-talkin’, knucklehead consultants as their advisors. We need to discourage good candidates from thinking that these, DC especially, advisors who are out of touch with, just, normal, everyday Americans, that these advisors know best. Especially advisors with really, really poor records.
They’re dumb, consultants, sometimes they’re dumb, and they almost always give horrible advice, I find. They try to shape and mold the candidate. Instead of letting a good candidate just be that good candidate, that got ‘em to where they are, well now, these advisors come in, y’know they come ridin’ in, what they want to have perceived as the white horse, and they’re gonna save this campaign, and in the meantime they screw up a lot of things.
So these consultants, I’m not impressed. and yet they keep gettin hired! They’re making hand over fist, they’re making big bucks off innocent contributors to candidates, to campaigns, not knowin’ that a lot of their money is going to these professional politicians, because they’re professional political consultants…well, that’s part of the problem. […] Again, we live and learn, and we come back stronger.
As Fartknocker explains…
Did you even just read all that? This is the clearest glimpse into Palin’s internal monologue we’ve ever seen. Up in Wasilla, it is always the fall of 2008. Up in Wasilla, Sarah Palin is always on her way to rescue John McCain’s campaign, if only those nincompoop advisers would get out of the way. Up in Wasilla, the possibilities are always endless.
And The Daily Beast has a lovely little paragraph about the Value Voters Summit that I simply have to share with ye wee feckers.
Gaffe aside, the rest of Palin’s speech was an unremarkable, nonsensical collection of Palinisms haphazardly strung together and delivered in her signature bright-yet-bitter-sounding sing-song style—like a homicidal kindergarten teacher.
And this pic is just cos it’s my blog and I can do whatever the hell I want.
At Tom and Joe’s diner in Altoona, PA. The home fries were to die for. I couldn’t finish them but we had them the next morning with Bloody Marys and Mimosas and Russell Sq’s delicious quiche. I can’t remember much about the rest of that day. The whole Altoona experience is a little foggy. I put the blame firmly on the shoulders of PSMinidiva. She ruined me in PA!!!
