Tennessee Tea Party: Sarah’s Sassy Speech

Tennessee Tea Party: Sarah's Sassy Speech

Mrs. Sarah Palin, former Temp-Governor of Alaska, gave a stirring speech to 400 disgruntled citizens in Nashville the other day.  Her words were so profound that we reproduce them in full, from Mrs. Palin’s personal text:

Palin-Prompter

    Um, you don’t know the difference between Memphis and Nashville ….

    Good point; I should have written it on my hand. I’ve corrected it above.

    LOVE the mad hatter graphic!!!!!

  4. Gary P Says:

    Sorry moron, it was 11,000 happy Americans she spoke to. Her address was covered as widely as Obama’s State of the Union speech a few weeks ago.

    Her speech was much more uplifting and inspiring.

    Esteemed sir, madam, or eunuch: 11,000 is beyond the capacity of any Nashville banquet hall, and a concentration of 11,000 disgruntled tea baggers would surely self-destruct through spontaneous combustion.

    $549 per noggin (convention ticket price) would generate $6,039,000 in revenue, and Fast-Buck Sarah would have upped her $100,000 fee.

    “Nearly 600 conservative activists, ranging from the energized to the eclectic, have convened in Nashville, Tenn., for the first-ever National Tea Party Convention, angry at Democrats and Republicans alike.” – ABC News

    Her address was covered as widely as Obama’s State of the Union speech a few weeks ago.

    Coverage of Mrs. Palin was as wide as the palm of her hand. And (as mandated by Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution) the State of the Union Address is delivered to the U.S. Congress, not a bunch of loons in funny hats (though Justice Alito was wearing a dress).

    The fascist trinity of Murdoch, Ailes & Rove laugh all the way to the bank as their GOP pin-up doll/televangelist is sold as some modern day Esther to the proudly ignorant in twangville. This travelling sideshow really brings in the loot. Have you seen the massive chateau now nearing completion on the “dead” Lake Lucille in AK? This will include her FOX in-home studio, from where her bilked supporters can continue to fill the Palin family piggybank. I mean SarahPac/Alaska Fund (phony legal defense fund)/PieSky/BSMP LLC (19yr old fresh outta high school running a lobbying firm…HaHa). P.T. Barnum was right…there’s one born every minute….

  7. D. Skinner Says:

    I give this lady credit for standing up for America and doing what she can do to restore the values that made this country great. I don’t think we have seen the last of this force. The Liberals of this country are concerned and thus the reason for being so critical of her at every venue. The American people (both Republican and Democrats) are quickly learning how ineffective the “CHANGE” has been since the election. I just hope we can hang in there until this 4 year earthquake ends.

  8. rick Says:

    She’s actually quite amusing; kind of like a circus side show. I think what scares people is the existence of supporters who think this ditz has the qualifications and intelligence to lead our country. That to me is scary.

    Nothing about the radical right really shocks me anymore, though. They are just as much off their rockers as fanatical Islamicists. Guys like Gary P (above) who know that if they interviewed someone for a job and the applicant consulted his hand to answer , “why do you want this job?” he would be politely shown the door and never called back. But ole’ Sarah P gets a pass; she’s moderately attractive, white, and looks good in a skirt.

    Actually, the studio is being added onto The House That Todd Allegedly Built.

    I am not sure what values Sarah Palin is returning to our country, and I am not certain why D. Skinner doesn’t think our country is great right now. That is the most unpatriotic crap I have read all day.

    Sarah Palin is a joke; she proves it every time she opens her mouth or checks the palm of her hand in order to remember the very basic core principles of the Republican Party. “Lift American Spirits.” Really?? “Lift Spirits” wouldn’t have been enough? She had to write “American” too, so she didn’t accidentally lift Canadian or Mexican spirits?

    So, D. Skinner, what is your favorite Palin value? Spending tax money on clothes? Quitting? “Aw shucks” folksy talkin’? Hatred? Book-banning? Political kick-backs? The amazing inability she possesses to create a single thought that isn’t already written down? Hypocrisy? Symbolism over any real substance?

    Please…

    [For the record, Mrs. P. spent campaign funds, not tax dollars, at Victoria's Secret, and she didn't actually ban books, just pressured those who refused to. - ml]

  11. Greg Palmer Says:

    Hey Mike 11,000 attendees would generate $6,039,000 not $549,000,000. Not surprising that you and your lib friends have made the Bush Debts look like chump change.

    You’re right Greg. I should have written it on my … oh, never mind. Corrected above, it still works.

    Not surprising that you and your lib friends have made the Bush Debts look like chump change.

    Actually, the Bush debt was not the issue; our first MBA President managed to crash the world economy. Why not? Every business he was in went under.

    Simple-minded National Debt fear-mongering prolonged the Great Depression of the 1930s. Your seem bent on repeating a dismal part of our country’s history. That takes nostalgia a bit too far.

  13. Conservatives Vote for Ron Paul « NotionsCapital Says:

    [...] have no one to blame but themselves. Dick Armey’s “Party of No” irregulars (aka Tea Baggers) successfully disrupted passage of healthcare legislation and are now turning on their GOP [...]

  14. Anonymous Says:

    What no one seemed to note was her comprehension of international affairs, mentioned at 15 minutes in to the speech:

    “”And around the world, people who are seeking freedom from oppressive regimes wonder if ALASKA is still that beacon of hope for their cause”

    ALASKA????? I can’t believe the press didn’t jump all over that one!!!!! …

  15. TN Lizzie Says:

    Change.org sent out an email today urging all of its members, affiliates, subscribers, & sychophants to “Send a powerful message to Discovery Communications expressing your disappointment at their action and urging them to drop Sarah Palin’s new show from their programming schedule.”

    Said powerful message is conveniently supplied for you. All you have to do is sign your name – which 9,000 Obama-zombies dutifully did in the first hour.

    Think about this for a minute. Sarah Palin is a private citizen. She is, of course the former governor of Alaska, and the 2008 Republican nominee for vice-president, but currently holds no elected office. She’s not currently a candidate for any elected office.

    But Team Obama thinks that the most important project of the week (they only send out one action call a week from Change.org) is to try to get her fired from the Discovery Channel.

    Why do you think Obama is so scared of Sarah Palin?

  16. Mike Licht Says:

    TN Lizzie: you have obviously confused Change.org with Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, the online presidential campaign organization. Write this on your hand: they are different.

    TN Lizzie wrote: Why do you think [Change.org] is so scared of Sarah Palin?
    Change.org is angry with Discovery for distributing a nature show hosted by someone with an ecological record as dismal as that of half-term governor Palin. If Mrs. Palin wasn’t a quitter, there would be a lot less Alaskan nature to televise.

    There are other petitions.
