Because you just can’t make this stuff up…

This is actually rather old now, but for some reason I forgot about it and didn’t publish it. After all the “good” news about oil spills and such I needed a bit of a laugh, so….

Sarah Palin, who we all know is no quitter (as she told us while quitting her job) is an independent maverick (thus the job at the ultra right mouth piece Faux “news”) and an American intellectual (as we saw by the notes she wrote on her hand so she would have a cheat sheet to make fun of Obama for using a teleprompter) as well as national treasure.

But she is so much more.

She is also a best selling author. Except that she didn’t write the book. Not that there is anything wrong with hiring a writer, hell in her case it means that the book is written in english instead of moron. But you really have to wonder about $60,000 plus that her PAC paid to buy her books. That does seem a bit odd. Or at least a tiny bit self serving. And again it isn’t terribly unusual. Just kinda sad. (Hush now, no mentioning that the book was being sold for 70% off by october. And no I am not suggesting that all 7 of her supporters who are capable of reading had already bought copies. Don’t put words in my mouth.)

Still, we have only begun to tap the talent that is Caribou Barbie. She is still more than is dreamt of in your philosophy!

She is also a superhero.

No, seriously. Remember kids, a Palin comic book is the perfect gift for your rightwing uncle who got red in the face and sprayed spit all over you as he yelled about “Obama goin’ an’ ‘doctrinatin them kids who is dumb enough to go to school the day he is a speakin’!” Buy two and get a crayon pack half price! Have fun coloring in the former governor as she speaks in front of a meat packing plant. Marvel at the attention to detail in the faces of the teabaggers that gather to pay to hear her mangle sentences in a way that would make W the lesser proud. Every crayon pack comes with 42 colors, including 26 shades of red, great for getting all the picture details just right as Super Palin helps the poor citizens of a small Alaskan town fend off the hordes of evil baby seals that surround them!

The illustrations alone have the propaganda heads of the former Soviet Union staring, dumbfounded, and the sheer magnitude of the lies.

How many do you think her PAC will buy? And will they eat the crayons?

    Shane, you have made me a friend for life. Keep the Palin humor coming. It is great.

    This practice of having organizations or millionaires buy your books to make them appear like they’re climbing the charts is so rotten. How do these types look at themselves in the mirror?

    I noticed on many of your right wing web sites they were giving the book away free for many months. So her PAC wasn’t the only one buying these books up.

    Indeed, if you frequent rightwing sites (as i do) you notice that pretty much every “best seller” to have ever been penned by a Faux news type is given away free for joining. I rather suspect this is what the PAC group does with the books, though perhaps they just burn them and the free books are are a second sale.

    It would be interesting (though obviously impossible) to find out what the “read” charts are for various books through history. Better yet a chart with read percentages.

    “Glenn Beck continues to hold the lowest number of words read per dollar spent on his book at 4 words per dollar, with most people unable to read past the dedication.”

    It’s just too easy. Sarah Palin is self-satirizing. OTOH she has raked in more money (over $12 million) in a couple of years than anybody I know will make in a lifetime.

    Gabriel Sherman:

    Sarah Palin is already president of right-wing America, and it’s a position with a very big salary.

    More fodder for Rachel Maddow’s clever,”They’re Not Embarrassed” series!

    If Beck ever dedicates his books, I would hope he has the decency to call and ask if it’s alright first. :)

    Today, Sarah Palin used a nonexistent word, and then tweeted:

    “Refudiate,” “misunderestimate,” “wee-wee’d up.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!

    Yeah, not knowing how to use a spell-checker is cause for celebration in Sarah’s World.

    Is Tina Fey at it again?

    Yeah, not knowing how to use a spell-checker is cause for celebration in Sarah’s World.

    That’s giving Caribou Barbie way too much credit Richard.
