An Open Letter to Sarah Palin

Dear Ms. Palin:

I feel sorry for you. I truly do. It must be terribly frustrating to be so irrelevant. To have your rabble-rousing, race-baiting drivel limited to Fox's Sean Hannity Show in your desperate, pathetic, never-ending quest for attention. You are, put simply, one of the most ignorant, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, hate-filled racists to ever hit the national political stage (thank you John McCain).

Your new video, in which you call for President Obama's impeachment because of his "lawlessness," is an unconscionable, unpatriotic piece of garbage. The level of disrespect, condescension, sarcasm and reality-butchering is astounding. To say that your fake-cutesy, sing-songy, snarky delivery is vomitous would be a colossal understatement. You're also quite tone-deaf, comparing your suffering over his presidency to that of a "battered wife." There really are no groups you won't offend, are there?  

Impeach Obama? For what, doing his job amid relentless Republican obstructionism and intransigence? For trying to keep government operating efficiently? For growing the economy? For creating millions of new jobs? For caring about 8-year-olds crossing the Mexican border alone? For wanting to find a practical, compassion solution to the immigration issue? For providing everyone health care? For trying to narrow the income inequality gap? For protecting women's rights?  For allowing people who love each other to marry?

That you, like that other heartless conservative Dick Cheney, even have a perch from which to still spew your venomous hate-speak, is unfortunate. No one, not even the Fox faithful, should be subjected to your incendiary bile. You're a failed, disgraced politician who, despite becoming a humiliating punchline following the 2008 election, refuses to crawl back under your rock. Trust me: no one except Hannity, a few horny white Republican dudes and a smattering of their intellectually bankrupt women are interested in what you have to say.

Ssshhhh....hear that sound? It's the rock beckoning....

The psychiatric community is too slow to define her issues and that of her followers.

We need some clarity on her condition. Is it treatable? Can she be saved?

And what about the future sufferers of Paliotolgism? What will future generations say about us relatively normal folks who did nothing but post blog comments. Aren't we truly responsible?

At least Andy's blogging. What about the rest of you? Are you just going to sit their laughing at her?!

This post on Palin is so right-on-the-mark it's scary. To label this preposterous fake as irrelevant is an understatement; unfortunately, there's really no better word available. And the calling out of "hero" McCain is appropriate since he's the reason why we have to continue to hear the drivel coming from this nobody. If he was such a "maverick" he would have overridden his advisers' suggestion of pandering to the far right christian conservative types who've hijacked the republican party. Anyway, I also hear to rock calling Palin back home... I feel for the rock.
