Sarah Palin Trail Of Destruction Heads From Idaho To South Carolina


Argh, one of the problems in blogging here at Wonkette on Wednesday mornings during the summer of a midterm election year is that you sometimes feel obliged to "cover" the boring pissant primaries that happened the previous evening. So, uh, last night's nonsense went down in Idaho, and, uh, Idaho is not the sort of word that attracts all of your valuable eyeballs and Google searches and clicky clicks, so, let's see, what's the angle ... oh right SARAH PALIN. Sarah Palin single-handedly saved Nancy Pelosi's job and now she's going to get involved in a hott sexx affair in South Carolina. (IS THAT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU, YOU VULTURES??)

Anyway, there is one reason why you or anyone else outside of Idaho (and three-quarters of the people living there, actually) would care about this so-called "Vaughn Ward," and that is because he was endorsed by Sarah Palin, who was wearing somebody else's clothes at the time. He also did a bunch of hilarious stuff, like claim in a debate that Puerto Rico wasn't under America's colonial sway, and get the awesome nickname "Young Gun" bestowed upon him by the NRCC, because of his money-raising prowess. Then last night he went and got his ass beat in the primary by Raul Labrador, an actual Puerto Rican. Labrador will now probably lose to Democrat Walt Minnick, who is super-conservative and votes against literally everything on the Democratic agenda and actually got endorsed by the Tea Party, but, uh, big tent?

But don't think that Sarah Palin is dwelling on the stench of political death she left behind her in Idaho! Now she is flying into South Carolina to deal with the very important blogger-on-candidate sex scandal! Well, not literally flying, as she fears that she would lose her last remaining garments and be forced to give a press conference wearing a potato sack. But she did write a long, rambling thing on her Facebook page about the scandal, because Nikki Haley is another doomed candidate that she supports. This diatribe, which literally begins with the sentence "Well, whaddya know," is well worth reading, if only as some sort of exercise to see if it would be possible to create a parody of Palin's writing style that would be distinguishable from the original. (SPOILER: It would not be possible.) Sarah doesn't think Nikki did it with the gross blogger, for the record, and stands fully behind Haley and against the attacks of the bloggers and the "lamestream media" (she says this for real, without irony), which means that the sex video of the two will be posted online within an hour and Haley's career will be over, because Sarah Palin destroys everything she touches.

But what do Palin's many Facebook fans think of all this? Let's hear some wisdom from the American people!

Can we deny Pami's wisdom? It does indeed figure !!!!!!!!, does it not?

Once upon a time, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers at least claimed to focus their efforts entirely on immigrants involved in criminal activity. Those days are long gone, and now they're going after anyone, including law-abiding people who are just trying to drive their pregnant wives to the hospital to give birth.

I'd mentioned this week that there's definitely probably a tape out there of Donald Trump referring to a black person as a "nigger," because Trump is a racist and that's sort of what they do. Sarah Huckabee Sanders won't even affirmatively deny such a tape exists, and she's from the "two plus two equals five" school of communications management. I also speculated that once the tape was released, Republican supporters of the president would flock to defend his vile words: "Hey, if you rearrange the letters in "nigger," you get "ginger" and who doesn't like redheads and the occasional Dark 'n' Stormy?"

The shameful display has already started and the supposed recording isn't even available for pre-order on iTunes. Georgia State Senator Michael Williams stated in appearance on CNN's "New Day Saturday" that if Trump -- who's the president, by the way -- did say "nigger," it would certainly concern him as an "individual" but "not necessarily as a person that is running our country." So, uh, what the hell is that? This has been a standard argument from Republicans ever since Trump crawled his way out of the sewers of birtherism and onto a major political stage: "We think Trump is a terrible human being -- seriously, we have to shower immediately after meeting with him -- but we still think he's a suitable steward of the most powerful nation on the planet."

Normally, you'd think this would work the other way. You know, your brother-in-law is a nice enough guy. Your sister certainly could've done worse. You don't mind the slightly rambling sports-ball discussions with him at family gatherings. He's good for looking after the kids (as long as your sister is present or reachable by cell), but you'd never invest your hard-earned money into whatever half-assed business venture he's trying to get off the ground nor would you back his run for any serious political office.

I've long had issues with the "brilliant asshole" archetype in TV and movies. It's almost always a white male (because women and minorities must be perfect) whose emotional immaturity and overall jerkass behavior we're told to overlook because they're so goshdarned awesome. Do you want some PC "cuck" or do you want Dr. House to figure out that the MS symptoms you're suffering are really just because you ate a stale doughnut? Sherlock Holmes doesn't have time for your feelings or social niceties -- not while he's solving mysteries and being dreamy.

Trump, however, isn't "brilliant." He's just a guy who says "nigger." They're hardly a scarcity in the market. You don't even have to venture out to a klan rally to find one. You can order online -- same day social media delivery.

Williams argues that Trump didn't use the word "nigger" when he was in the "office of the president." It was just some youthful indiscretion when he was almost 60. I don't even know where he's going with this. Does he think Trump has changed? He routinely insults and belittles black people. He also calls black NFL players who peacefully protest "sons of bitches." Was that his way of weaning off calling us "niggers"? Has he been wearing a "nigger" patch on his arm to control his cravings for the racial epithet?

"He used the word in his personal life," Williams said. (It was actually in a workplace context -- SER) "Now if he were president and were to go on TV and use the n-word, I'd have a major problem with that."

It's heartening repulsive to see that Williams draws the line at Trump holding an official "nigger" press conference. I think once we reach that point, Trump will probably also reveal that his buddies on the Supreme Court discovered a typo in the Thirteenth Amendment and black folks' work-life balance will start to really suffer.

"I will always say using the n-word is wrong, and it's bad, and should never be accepted in our society. But just because (Trump) might have done it years ago, not as our president, doesn't mean we need to continue to berate him because he used it," GOP state Sen. Michael Williams, who is white, told CNN's Victor Blackwell on "New Day Saturday."

Blackwell, who is black, had to sit there and listen to this crap from a white elected official who is just 45 years old. You know, the word "nigger" doesn't even appear in the Dred Scott decision, for example, but that's not necessary for reasonable people to understand that it was racist as hell. We all know Trump is racist, but now Republicans can't even repudiate the worst demonstrations of his racial animus. The first black president hasn't even been out of office for two full years and already "nigger" is being redefined. What would once end a campaign in its tracks when Blackwell and I were growing up is now just an "oops, my bad."
