What's In Sarah Palin's Mind?

K-Lo:

In light of that post yesterday, I note that Lisa Murkowski accuses Sarah Palin of not enjoying governing (during an interview with Katie Couric).

Perhaps she stepped down because she didn’t need to be governor, she knew she could do more for more out of office. And in her mind there aren’t the governed and the govern-ers, we tend to be one in the same in our representative system.

I don't think I have anything funny to say here, I'm just amused at the combination of witlessness and telepathy and pretend-egalitarianism required to justify the actions of Sarah Palin.

This one ("Governing in American") is pretty impressive in its own right. As you say, not much to add, I just stare in awe at the idiocy.

It would not speak well for Ms Palin's intelligence if she had decided, purely on the basis of the way the title sounds, that State Governors were a less-representative component of government than (say) Vice-Presidents. If she were consistent, neither would her mind have room for the concepts of the Presided-over and the Presiders.

Doesn't sound to me that K-Jo is being very complimentary to Ms Palin.

Carl Hiassen has set a high bar for me of what Governors are supposed to do when they realise that the office is simply a part of a corrupt political system. When they turn renegade, I expect them to take up a completely feral life in the swamps, and harass the system with acts of eco-terrorism. Palin has disappointed me.

Oh, I'm sure she has some eco-terrorism left in her.

And she's gone all feral in the Fox swamp.

Checkered-flag kilt should be required.

Are represented and representatives one and the same in our governance system? Also, she needs an editor.

Well, that is all win.

But holy hell, could that not have been used for all kinds of great negative ads in the days before voting?

Whatever happened to "government is the problem"?

She's not getting the memos.
