One can only hope the Republican party is rejecting her brand of religious, anti-[fill in the blank], business before people, and so on kind of politics, and getting back to what it once was. Oh, and actually being willing to… you know, what’s the word that is so out of favor in Washington now… govern. Yeah, that’s it!

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the “Freedom Party.”

Palin suggested she is open to the idea and said that if the GOP continues to abandon its conservative principles, other would follow suit.

    Don’t forget how gay men obsess over the legitimacy of Palin’s birthing of her youngest child.

    The Republican party is now dead. The Democrats have succeeded in killing that just like they have killed the Constitution, the Economy, the Right to Privacy, and your basic freedoms.
    Trains will be departing for the camps shortly. Right after the government disarms all of you poor schmucks.
    “I told you so”.
    God help us.

    • The Monster's Lawyer says:

      You give the Dems way too much credit. I do believe it was the ultra conservative movement that did the most damage to the GOP. The GOP will survive but not in it’s current configuration. It will take some time to re-establish it’s relevancy through enlightenment. The amount of time is solely dependent on the speed of that enlightenment.

      • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

        Sure, that’s the ticket. Like Democrats really want the Republican Party to win their base over.

        We both know if the the choice is Democrat or faux Democrat, voters choose the former. Our Elites never figured that out.

        Moreover they like to party in DC with Democrats, and play golf and enjoy the same K Street benefits together, in complete fellowship…holding hands walking in the moonlight together….long walks that is.

        But real Republicans, those who believe in freedom from Government, and want to prosecute Government thieves…are tired of being subverted…

        They destroyed our candidates, and floated their own these last two elections…and they lost…

        Its time we either throw them out so they can be real Democrats…or start our own party….


      • SteveD13 says:

        Isn’t this how the Whig party met its end? Whigs opposed presidential power, believed congress should have more power than the executive branch. Believed in economic protectionism (conservatism?) The party disintegrated over a human rights issue. The expansion of slavery of slavery into the territories. Hardliners within the party would not compromise. Members within the party would not support incumbents if they did not follow party lines. The party disintegrated as members split off or left politics completely.

    • Dallas says:

      I’m think it was more like a self inflicted fatal wound!

  3. Dee says:

    How can anyone blame the democrats for the republicans self implosion? My opinion is that there used to be a separate conservative party that represented those values. The fight for the republican parties values, because there is no room for negotiation, is causing the implosion.

  4. Jim says:

    looking at how the tea party has really skewed the GOP, I’m not surprised there is now talk of a split. I’m just wondering why we didn’t hear about this in January.

    This is setting up like the split in the Progressive-Conservatives in Canada. The more rural folks are pissed at the elites, but still have the left wing. Sounds a lot like the Reform Party from western Canada splitting from the Ontario and Maritime Conservatives to me, except without a Preston Manning-like figurehead leading the split. After the 2014 or 2016 election is when I could see the split occur.

  5. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    After the 2010 TeaParty sweep, Obama was finished. Speaker Boehner resurrected him with his deals…and they do play golf together often…they are buddies.

    They both conspired against the Tea Party…

    If they manage to get Amnesty passed, with Obama able to veto any border enhancement and keep undocumented Democrats flooding into the country…we will start our own party.

    If Boehner fails to push the sell out through Congress…the war to retake the Party from progressives will continue…so far, with the IRS etc stomping on us…we weren’t winning…

    But the IRS threat has rekindled the movement, and added to our ranks many Democrats…and its possible 2014 will see the Elites finally forced to switch parties.

    I fully expect Chris Christie to be Hillary’s VP.

  6. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    And perhaps Jeb Bush will be her Secretary of Education. Such is the cost of a liberty medal.

    • Dallas says:

      Even Barbara Bush commented that America has had enough Bush’s in the Whitehouse.

      I give her credit for acknowledging the carnage left behind by George W and tarnishing the good name that George senior wanted for the family. Now it’s ruined!

      Jeb can run for mayor of Beverly Hills

    I found it very telling about how much of a threat the Left viewed Sara Palin to be to them as demonstrated by just how vicious and prolonged their attacks against her were. /// Lots of the FERP’s viewed the Half Governor as a threat to Sane Qualified Government as well, especially as time went on and her lack of competency was revealed. Shouldn’t ANY UNQUALIFIED INCOMPETENT WANNABE be voted against as a threat to sweet reason? Even McCane KNOWS he made a stupid mistake. Just listen to him—-thats right, he doesn’t talk about her. Only a partisan hypocrite posts as if both sides aren’t viscious in their attacks on the other. Don’t be a hypocrite—it makes your pants look tight.

    She was the only person in the 2008 campaign that was obviously not an animatronic robot. /// Rhetorical BS.

    All the rest required a hospital exam to make that determination, and in Biden’s case, an update patch to his English language routines would have been in order… /// All the rest….. why… that includes McCane. Don’t forget your partisan stupidity.

    As for her sub par performance in debates and interviews, /// Ahhh…. theres the nub. You report this matter of factly…. and it was and is still the truth. The woman is an idiot. Why do you and your ILK support so many clearly uniformed idiots? What is THAT???? Religion??….. What????

    I simply attribute that to her coming into the campaign “cold” when everybody else had been running to be President for the previous 18-24 months. //// Yeah–because Small Town Mayor and a Half Governor didn’t motivate her to EVER READ A NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINE. She struck out on soft ball pitches. Probably, the least qualified VP only a half step ahead of Stockdale.

    They had all been coached and drilled endlessly on what to spout, how to act, what to wear, what interests to have, etc. /// Yep—too stupid to be coached is what SHE IS.

    I give her full credit for actually following here faith in terms of deciding to have the retarded kid be born rather than aborted. /// I agree too. Loving mother of retarded kids is what she is good at.

    That takes but guts and conviction of beliefs that I simply don’t see on the Left. /// You don’t? Well…. just open your eyes and LOOK!

    Hell, it’s hard to find on the Right. Most all politicians are incapable of making a hard choice of any sort on anything. /// Why haven’t you acted on this realization? Instead, you make yourself partisan as opposed to balanced. Amusing. ….. why: “In this near balance of evil, stupidity, and lack of ability to make hard choices–I lie and posture myself for the FERP’s because………….why?”

    Where she gunned herself down as an elected official was when she quit the governorship of Alaska seemingly out of the blue. /// No–a last bid effort to avoid prosecution for abuse of office.

    It’s hard to take somebody who abandons high office mid term seriously for further office when they quit for anything other than major health issues, scandals (she had none to speak of, despite the claims of the Left) //// Ha, ha. So—tell us again the “mystery” of why she left?

    , or to leave for higher office. It tells the voter that the person is probably not up to the job and therefore not worth voting for –/// Stupid Shit. Why don’t you read and fully process and ACCEPT what you write yourself? Truly religious type stupidity on display.

    Ross Perot taught us that by example. /// Perot taught us a totally different example: under the stress of a long and pointed campaign, HIS coaching and puppet handlers couldn’t hide the fact that HE WAS CRAZY. Actually–the model he provides regarding Palin. She might not be nuts… firmly grounded in her own ego as she is.

    AC—-good to see you out of your shell. I see why you stayed in for so long.

    • Greg Allen says:

      what the /// hell?

      Who taught you to write like that?

      • pedro says:

        Perot. Is right there is his rambling.

        Is the only thing I got out of that rambling.

    • Tim says:

      What is the acronym FERP? kibitz-bot hangs on “a penis fully covered in hair” which, I believe, is not what is meant here.

  8. sounder says:

    Rush Limbaugh is heading the republican party. All he wants is more drugs.

  9. Greg Allen says:

    Which earns her more money? Staying with the GOP? Or starting our own medicine show?

    That’s what she will chose.

  10. MikeN says:

    Sarah Palin is hated for being a villain and for exposing Obama in just 45 minutes in her convention speech what he ad built up over 18 months.

    “Being a mayor is like being a community organizer, only with responsibility.”

    • SteveD13 says:

      No, she is not hated for being the villain who exposed Obama. A lot of people from all parties don’t like Obama and have claims to that title.

      The Alaska Gubernatorial Resignee is hated because she appears to be a dim-witted, hate spouting, bible-thumping, talking-point regurgitating, give me the cash first, opportunist without an original thought in her own head who will turn on a dime and jump on any bandwagon that will earn her more of the media spotlight and a larger income.

      • MikeN says:

        No that’s not why she is hated. If so, the same people would be hating Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton too.

  11. CP says:

    Neither party even remembers what they once stood for and are only around to please lobbyists.
    Palin is one of the best examples of the sham. She doesn’t want the govt controlling the amount of soda people consume, yet she wants a ban on abortions. Anyone who takes this brainless moron seriously needs to examine the authenticity of their own beliefs. She can’t articulate a point, she can’t defend an argument, and couldn’t complete her job as an official.
    Conservatives should be ashamed to be associated with such an inconsistent, babbling, fool. If she were ugly, no one would pay any attention.

  12. Dave M., Paramedic says:

    Uh, this is Dave with the Paramedics. We got to the home of the guy who owns this computer and found him dying on the floor from a massive heart attack. He managed to grunt out that he didn’t know how Dvorak smuggled that photo of one of his psychotic ex-wives out of the institution she’s in, but when you posted it on the internet, you not only killed him, but probably irreversibly traumatized thousands of children, too.

    I see cases like this every day. Stop posting photos of psychotic housewife meltdowns before you kill again!



    PS — Powering down now…..

  13. MikeN says:

    >Oh, and actually being willing to… you know, what’s the word that is so out of favor in Washington now… govern. Yeah, that’s it!

    Was it Sarah Palin or Senate Democrats who refused to produce a budget for 4 years?
