Right Wing World: Sarah Palin Doesn't Disappoint at CPAC

If there is one primary Right Wing World thing I've wondered about (beyond how anyone finds "conservative humor" funny), it's how in the world such odd people become right wing heroes. And Sarah Palin is at the tippy-top of that list. The highest level of political office attained by Palin was governor of a sparsely populated state, for half a term. She proved during her short time as a Vice Presidential candidate that her depth of knowledge is. . .well. . .shallow. She's a pro at the "pageant answer," chock full of "truthiness," without really needing to make any real sense.

She's learned that all she has to do is throw out some far-right red meat phrases, stir in some folksiness, some snark against liberals, and then string it all together in a never-ending, paragraphs-long, run-on sentence.   Also, too. And yet, this lightweight puff of aged "mean girl" fluff was the keynote speaker at CPAC, the big conservative confab. And they totally dug her.

And I know that by writing about her, I'm just giving her what she wants, but when I read the excerpted article below, I absolutely had to post it. I bolded a couple of the lines that drew me in. But please click through to read the rest. Only Martin Bashir has come close to saying it better.

By now, and by god, it should have settled permanently in the consciousness of the nation what a huge and untoward gamble with the country John McCain and his campaign took in 2008 when they elevated Sarah Palin from her rightful place on the tundra to the political celebrity she currently enjoys. McCain should pay a heavy price for unleashing this ignorant, two-wheeled bilewagon on the country's politics. If you think she's a legitimate political leader, you're an idiot and a sucker and I feel sorry for you. . .It was as singularly embarrassing a public address as any allegedly sentient primate ever has delivered. . .
