Niche lifestyle brand Sarah Palin has endorsed a Democrat in Alaska’s race for governor. Really!


Former Gov. Sarah Palin has endorsed gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker. […]

"Last night my family, along with Byron and Toni Mallott, and our campaign staff attended a reception hosted by Todd and Sarah Palin at their lakeside property in Wasilla,” said Walker in a press release sent Wednesday.

Bill Walker is not a Democrat; he’s a Palin pal who’s running as an independent. But Byron Mallott, Walker’s running mate since the two teamed up in a ballot reshuffle to screw over incumbent Republican Sean Parnell, totally nominally is a Democrat!

Walker is running alongside Democrat Byron Mallott, and has the Democratic Party’s support.

Among the poor unfortunates who did NOT earn the Palin Lakeside Property Seal of Approval was Alaska’s current governor, who was Palin's running mate in 2006 and her lucky lieutenant governor in 2009 when she bravely quit to go make more $$$, elevating him to his current office.

So, that makes two former running mates Palin has Judased. She’s already rogued all over John McCain because his campaign was dumb and wouldn’t let her talk about the REAL ISSUES in the 2008 presidential election, like Bill Ayers and that time Obama said there are 57 states impeach.

While there is often no “why” when it comes to Sarah Palin, she has an actual good reason to oppose Parnell:

This summer, Palin criticized Parnell for undoing her signature oil tax policy, and threw her support behind a tax referendum movement that narrowly failed.

If you’re not familiar with Palin’s “signature oil tax policy,” you might assume that it went something like, “There are no oil taxes because job creators and God bless the billionaires and drill baby drill who needs revenue anyway sounds too kinda French if ya ask me.” But you’d be wrong! That’s actually a more fitting description of the Parnell plan that she opposed:

At stake is the fate of major tax breaks and incentives for the oil industry, part of a system that was pushed through the Republican-controlled Legislature last year by Gov. Sean Parnell, who billed it as a way to stimulate new drilling in the aging oil fields of the North Slope, where production has been in decline for decades.

For real, Palin is (or is sometimes) actually pretty good on this, even if she still has trouble keeping up with a stopped clock on everything else. And if you were expecting Sarah to put the demise of her signature not-abysmal oil policy aside and endorse the Republican for the sake of party unity, you obviously haven’t been keeping up with the Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report presented by Fartknocker – she hates the GOP so much now!

So basically yes, Sarah Palin has endorsed a Democrat because the Republican in the race wasn’t tough enough on the oil companies, and that is not even a joke. Sarah Palin, principled stateswoman. That is kind of a joke. At least we will have Bristol.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
