Going away? Not likely

After quitting as Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin's new book, Going Rogue, arrives on bookshelves in November. "Rogue" was her affectionate nickname as the VP candidate during John McCain's failed Presidential run.

I guess it was so cute and fit her that she's capitalizing on it's success.

Known as the champion of the GOP's position to derail and cause failure with anything President Obama says or does, she coined the phrase, "Death Panels" to describe his health care reform project. And, if after listening to her speak, if your own child doesn't have "Down Syndrome," you actually feel guilty.

I wonder if she has a chapter in her book, "How to Quit Your Job," or "How to Let Everyone Down"?
Instead of "going rogue," I wish she'd just go away.

Why should anybody be afraid of Palin? Unless she runs for some office in Alaska, she's not ever going to be elected to anything.

Nemo,

THAT was threatening to you? Wow are YOU insecure!

It speaks volumes to me that dargent refers to women as "assholes, idiots, fat ass, loser...."

Slacker,

Never assume anything in politics. Anything can happen there.

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 9:15

dargent, just heard about your buried penis, please accept my condolences.

By: house_of_pain on 10/22/09 at 9:16

Yeah, he called me "mentally defective" the other day.
I better not find out that means something bad...

pain, I guess dargent has to exhume his penis, every time he urinates.

I'd hate to be the one to give the eulogy at that funeral.

Chief, pay attention: he's been President less than one year. Second, he's a politician. Did Bush keep every one of his political promises?

I'm not like you, I haven't predetermined his administration to be a failure less than a quarter into his term. I'll defer judgment a few years and see how it plays out.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:27

Poor Harry. I guess it all came down to poor intelligence. LOL

I seriously doubt this man will be reelected come 2010.

Harry Reid Lashes Out at Republicans After Senate Sinks Medicare Measure

D7's comments may cause poor Mrs. Palin many tears. You'd
think she quit as his beloved Governor. Without even coming out
yet her book spent a few weeks at #1 on NY Times best selling list
and is still at #3. At $125,000 per yr who could blame her for stepping
down as Governor, especially with the media grief she was enduring.
I see no reason why she wishes to appear on Queen Opra's show
although it will probably result in selling many books to a limited number
of her viewers.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:29

Nemo,

You're the one who considered it a threat. I don't watch Oprah and don't intend to start.

I wonder, if you sprinkle viagra on penis' grave, will it rise from the grave?

"I'm not like you, I haven't predetermined his administration to be a failure less than a quarter into his term. I'll defer judgment a few years and see how it plays out."

Ok..one then. I'll accept it's possible I missed it...so can you give me one promise he's kept yet?

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 9:32

When I go to funerals, I never look into the casket, for two reason.

One: I don't want to say that (a) The person looks like they are sleeping. (b) That the mortican did an awful job and that this person is dead.

Two: It might be me.

"Legislation will be posted on internet 5 days before being signed."

As it hasn't been? No health care bill has gone to the President yet, so nothing exists yet to be posted.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:34

Gdia,

"I wonder, if you sprinkle viagra on penis' grave, will it rise from the grave?"

Like mushrooms maybe???

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 9:34

chief, I'm thinking Sarah could move to Arizona and succeed Joe Arpaio, as Sheriff of Maricopa county. She would win in a landslide.

What are you talking about fuzzy hand puppet? That is the one Oprah I will watch. I am even going to tape it.

I'm rather happy with Harry Reid right now....

Slacker,

Possibly. But I'm thinking she just may run for Congress myself. Who knows?

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:38

Chief, there are three pages worth, and this seems like a good sight for you to keep up with your obsession.

Yes, Sarah should move to Arizona.

nemo, you are supposed to say they look natural.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:41

Actually, Arizona could be perfect for her...the Coyotes have ownership problems...she could buy the team using the proceeds from her book, thus preventing American jobs moving to Canada. Good PR.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 9:41

That too slacker. In life they look dead. lol

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 9:41

chief, I see a movie: ''Mrs Palin Goes To Washington''.

"As it hasn't been? No health care bill has gone to the President yet, so nothing exists yet to be posted."

I wasn't even considering the current health care bill.

A Flagging Obama Transparency Effort

"Of the eleven bills President Obama has signed, only six have been posted on Whitehouse.gov. None have been posted for a full five days after presentment from Congress"

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:43

Slacker,

Well, you have to admit...it would make Congress a bit more interesting!

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:44

Yeah slacker, the premise: She goes to Washington...state...by accident and passes out on Jimi Hendrix's grave and when she awakes, she can play "Hey Joe". It becomes a minor hit in El Salvador and prompts a mad love affair with Joe the Plumber. The two eventually run away together and start a microphone business in Haiti.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 9:44

slacker

Then she can say I see the Russian Embassy.

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 9:46

chief, we could get Jimmy Stewart's granddaughter, to play Sarah. We'll make millions I tell ya.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 9:48

Yes I like that better slacker. wink wink

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:48

Gdia,

I stand corrected...he did keep some promises after all.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:49

Slacker,

You, my friend, are a genius! LOL

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:50

Yep, I guess the sky isn't falling, huh? Who knew?

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:51

Gdia,

Regardless, he has on the outset broken some promises...that is undeniable.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:52

Chief, it's unrealistic that any politician can keep every promise. You should know this, you're not that naive. Or are you?

You're just looking for any excuse to criticize. Shocking.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/22/09 at 9:52

sounds like the little kid on vacation who didn't get to go on one more carnival ride. "but daddy, you PROMISED......"

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 9:54

Gdia,

Seems to me it was pretty easy to post any bills submitted for his signature for 5 days on the internet before his signing it.

Yet it hasn't happened yet.

I won't even comment on transparency. We've all seen that was a joke from day one too.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 9:54

Yep, you nailed it Blanket. The more Chief posts, the more ridiculous he sounds.
