Sarah Palin: Killing Them at the Safari Club

Killing them at the Safari Club International annual convention, Sarah Palin warned Obama was out for their gun rights-and dangles a major hint about 2012.

Palin is all smiles as she strides on stage. The press has been barred from the event, and she knows she won’t find a crowd this friendly again anytime soon–especially in a key presidential caucus state. The audience is even happier. For the past few days, powerless rank-and-file Safari Clubbers have been fretting over what the government plans to do with their guns after January 8th tragic shooting in Tucson. Now they’re about to hear from someone who may potentially have the pull to prevent their worst nightmares from coming true. The roar of the crowd is positively leonine.

Warm welcome or not, it still takes a few minutes for Palin to hit her target. At first, she seems to address every topic except the aftermath of Tucson. She admits that she “threw a little politics” into her recent TLC reality show by dragging the crew to the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge on the pretense of hunting caribou. Her real purpose? Showing viewers that ANWR is a “barren, desolate, less-than-pristine place”–perfect, in other words, for lots of new oil drilling. “If a caribou needs to be sacrificed for the sake of energy independence,” she adds, “I say, Mr. Caribou, maybe you need to take one for the team.” She mentions how some media figures have pledged not cover her at all in February, and says the boycott “sounds good” to her: “because there’s a lot of chaos in Cairo, and I can’t wait to not get blamed for it–at least for a month.” She even cites her children’s Christian names as evidence of her outdoorswoman cred. “Piper was named after Todd’s airplane, the Piper cub, which gets us to the hunting grounds,” she explains. “Bristol, Bristol Bay fishing grounds. Willow, a local sport-fishing stream. Trig, I pull the TRIG-ger. Track… I remember when we told my dad that his grandson was named Track, he said, &Like TRACKing an elephant”

Once again Palin has been given the platform to basically spew pre- exsisting talking points about a hunting culture and guns, while her personal narrative as shown on her TLC show, which has been cancelled,  as some kind of outdoorswoman has pretty well been debunked. She offers nothing of substance concerning these issues. But, that is obviously not what they are paying her the big bucks for. If things hold to the standard I’ve observed in the past with every other group or club that Palin is associated with, eventually they fail. It’s like they are stripped of what is the original intent, when Sarah Palin is involved. My hope…..This club because of it’s misplaced support of Palin and her divisiveness will lose membership, not gain it.

    And yet another version of why they named child number five “Trig.” I believe that this current version of “Track” is different as well. She adds details with every telling.

    She received a great deal of criticism for the expensive trek to ANWAR, so of course she now spins it as being on behalf of Alaska and the good old USA. What a piece of work. Regina’s post today at Palingates is very enlightening. I think she is on to something.

      You’re correct. Track was supposedly named because of her love of running. Trig was supposedly from a Norse word for courage, or bravery, or warrior, I forget which. I think the Willow origin was also changed. She truly does lie about everything!

    Sarah Palin was a good idea at the time. Frank Murkowski made her really seem great because he acted like a jerk, and she was what Alaska needed.

    What Palin never considered was that people would get tired of her and she needed an exit so when she did rear her Bump-it, we’d be pleasantly entertained for a moment. Even popular people who are good take breaks, like Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, etc. Doesn’t she get tired of being Sarah Palin and need to unwind?

    Everyone knows that Tri-G isn’t really hers because no one would take the risks she allegedly took to have a premature child with Down Syndrome in Mat-Su. His name was a joke that she thought no one would pick up on, but she constantly forgets that she isn’t as smart as her former constituents.

      It’s great to know that you’re there! I’m so glad you figured her out. 🙂

    It was painful to realize that she had never been what she presented to us. It took a while to figure it out when so many had known for years that she was a chameleon. You can’t fake intellect for very long with smart people.

    She was at first like a trained poodle going against real politicians who were like huskies. You know how huskies are: they are trained for hard work and they can make decisions alone if they have to and can work as a team or alone. We elected a poodle who performed well in the ring, but then discovered that she is one of the poodles who doesn’t like to work hard (I know, most poodles CAN work hard as they share ancestry with Labs!) and with her inability to control her snarkiness, may as well not be paper trained.

    She can’t have a role in politics due to her lack of finesse. She misses nuances.

    Oh– and she named her kids as if they were horses. Piper after her husband’s plane? I’m glad he isn’t a washmachine repairman!

    Funny–Rebecca Mansour now tells all the Palin fans: don’t believe what you heard with your own ears. Believe what I say…..

    Sarah Palin did a lot of interviews about Track being named because she ran track. Then it came out that she was caught in a lie. Then we heard about how good she was at basketball and that she and Bristol could beat President Obama and his brother-in-law who is now the Coach in Oregon. That was a good story until her former classmates pointed out that she averaged less than two points per game and they called her “barracuda” behind her back because she wasn’t a team player. Then she bragged about her school grades until the Wasilla classmates said that the class was very small and she was jealous of ALL the students who got better grades than she. The one thing they all agreed on was that in Wasilla, Sarah had the reputation of stretching the truth; carrying grudges and always trying to get even; and that she was not a likable person. Stories change because she gets caught in her lies. Her book has more fiction than fact: she claims that she wanted her daughter born on the 4th of July so she went kayaking and got it to happen. Only problem is that the hospital records and birth certificate don’t agree with what she wrote. Sarah is a compulsive liar and has mental health issues.
