Sarah Palin – Mrs Potato Head
January 30, 2011

Spudnut Shop, Richland

In one of her recent poorly-executed attacks on the President, Sarah Palin (the country’s favorite ignorant fraud) makes the following claim:

Well, the Spudnut shop in Richland, Washington — it’s a bakery, it’s a little coffee shop that’s so successful, sixty-some years, generation to generation, a family-owned business not looking for government to bail them out and to make their decisions for them. It’s just hard-working, patriotic Americans in this shop.

We need more spudnut moments in America. And I wish that President Obama would understand, in that heartland of America, what it is that really results in the solutions that we need to get this economy back on the right track. It’s a shop like that.

Hmmmmm ……. “sixty-some years” she says? I wonder what Richland “in that heartland of America” was like “sixty-some years” ago…

Detail from Wikipedia

Oh, that’s right. “Sixty-some years” ago, the Federal Government plunked down a whole town and a huge industry, right in Richland’s front yard (the hamlet of Hanford). A huge new industry, it was the industry of the Manhattan Project, the industry of the space age, the industry of atomic weapons, the industry of nuclear power. Industries brought to you by the Second World War, with an extended season starring the Cold War, and an ongoing finale performed by nuclear science. “Generation to generation”, the Department of Energy’s corps de ballet today still numbers around 11,000 donut-munching public servants – and that’s not counting the cast of Energy Northwest’s commercial nuclear power plant, the Columbia Generating Station, part of the original government facility.

If he worked there, Homer Simpson would be munching on Spudnuts like the rest of them.

The cleanup operation has been running for 20 years and isn’t even halfway completed. The government spends $2 BILLION every year on the site cleanup operations alone.

Amazing! All of this BIG government money “in that heartland of America”? All of this business going to that little-old-aw-shucks-Mom-and-Pop-heartland “family-owned business” run by “just hard-working, patriotic Americans not looking for government to bail them out”?

Again, on her Facebook page, Sarah Palin writes, “Businesses like this coffee shop don’t receive big government bailouts.”

In the government company town of Richland, how many customers have Spudnuts ever served that weren’t supplied by BIG government, bitch?

Sarah Palin’s Cult Nominating Her Running Mate
January 4, 2011

Madam Presidentess

The bent ignoramuses at the Palin Cult HQ have molested their quivering braincells yet again in the service of their Princess Jesus, and gathered over the holidays to select the next Vice-President of the United States of America because, yeah, in the land they inhabit these Einsteins can do that.

Stephanie87 says:
I’ve thought for while now that she could end up picking Giuliani, too. He’s liked her and stuck up for her from the beginning, and he’d be a great draw for the independent vote… and the NY and California voters.

Jindal, I like, but I don’t think he’d be all that great of a campaigner. He’s brilliant in interviews, but it’s almost impossible to catch all the brilliant things he says cause he talks too fast.

Rubio is going to be a Washington insider by then, and I kinda have a feeling Palin isn’t gonna pick someone without executive experience, either.

dr_vicki says:
Think about it. If there is no one, or only one or two candidates who pose a serious challenge, Gov Palin could one by one roll out cabinet picks. It seems like any of the minor challengers who wanted a shot at an executive pick might drop out in order to have a chance at an appointment. You know those other guys gotta be looking at Gov Palin as inevitable. Maybe not an inevitable winner, but an inevitable fight.

section9 says:
Way too soon for that. Remember what happened to Joltin’ Joe Miller? He was buying office furniture for Washington, and then lost has butt to Madame Write-In.

Never pick the drapes in the Oval Office. People hate that.

KeeleyH says:
Not BEFORE she even has the nomination yet. But once she’s the nominee, it will be ok, IMO.

JAN says:
But won’t that leave the cabinet picks open to attacks by the MSM. The MSM would check into their backgrounds and if they found anything they would blow it into a major scandal and harp on it for weeks. They could even make things up. The campaign could turn into Palin’s poor judgment on cabinet picks.

KeeleyH says:
I know a lot of people here like Allen West. But he is too much of an unknown to most people. Sarah needs someone older and already well known and well liked. I think it will be ok if she picks:

Rudy Giuliani – VP
Mitt Romney – Sec. of Treasury (to unite the Romney/establishment fraction)
Joe Lieberman – Sec. of State
John McCain – Sec. of Defense

johnmd says:
I dissagree with the last two. Lieberman is to old plus he is a wuss. Liz Cheney She is a foreign policy expert , has worked a long time under Condi Rice in the State Dept. She would be a good one there she also has a spine. I like Newt for sec of defense. He has asked some good questions like do we really need 942 military bases and do we really need a 250 million a copy ground support aircraft.

susiepuma says:
Are you serious???

Giuliani – no vote from me – ugh!
Romney – no
Liberman – turncoat – no trust here – reminds me of spector, coleman –
mccain – he’s done –

excopconservative says:
Please, no Lieberman or McCain. I would guess she might like Steve Forbes as VP. The economy is still going to be the issue in 2012 and he is strong there and she was a Forbes supporter in 2000. I’d take Giuliani as AG any day. The contrast between Holder and Giuliani couldn’t be clearer. I hope she keeps Romney at arms length. I think she’ll choose people she trusts and she probably doesn’t trust him. I’d also like to see Joe Arpaio as director of Homeland Security.

Punchumgum would like to see Joe Arpaio in Mexico.
