When thinking of a candidate who was never vetted, who comes to mind?

Sarah Palin dredges up an old controversy that focused on the lack of the vetting process of Sarah Palin
By Erik Wemple

Palin hearts old news. (Associated Press) Andrew Sullivan this week authors an attention-getting cover story for Newsweek titled, “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?? The piece argues that the president has “delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand” and also includes a critical tactical error. That of failing to mention Sarah Palin.

For that omission, Palin made Sullivan pay, via Twitter:

@Newsweek: know what’s truly “dumb”? Giving a cover story to the TrigTruther conspiracy kook writer who thinks I didn’t give birth to my son
That outburst is a reference to Sullivan’s obsession with Palin’s account of the circumstances leading up to Trig’s birth. Of course, the Trig situation wasn’t central to Sullivan’s case against Obama’s dumb critics, or even peripheral. It’s an old story, one that bears no relevance to today’s affairs and that no one really cares about anymore. A forgotten tale. So why on earth would Palin herself drag it back into the dialogue? Any guesses out there?

    I’d guess that she is feeling very guilty, and very cornered. What is truly ‘dumb’ from this ‘numbskull’ is that she is drawing attention to the stories, and actually encouraging people to relook at those photos. Duh, Sarah, why would you want more people delving into your secret closet? Add that to the new work at Politicalgates concerning her and Todd’s LLCs and the buying of several expensive properties recently, adn it seems our Quitter is going to be whin ing a lot in the next few weeks. Maybe even on her way to jail…delicious!

    Syrin — not sure if you’ve seen this yet, but oh boy if it’s real. I kind of feel sorry for the family (well, maybe not…)

    I think the plan is for Willow to finally get her own reality show and opportunities to a career her sister failed. The wedding will be Willow’s Big Fat Valley Trash Wedding, staring the entire family – for one huge shindig… gar-un-darn-tee-it!

    Bristol’s shot her wad… No one wants Todd… Track seems uninterested… and that leaves Willow (Piper is too young and uncontrollable, in other words, a brat) I’m sure Willow is more than ready to get her 15 minutes. If Willow’s wedding won’t sell, we’ll know the Palins are washed up for good.

    “so why on earth would Palin drag herself back into this dialogue”?

    Because she is a malignant narcissist . . . . .

    “so why on earth would Palin drag herself back into this dialogue”?

    Because she has had this debate in her head and WON! She is winning just like Charlie Sheen. Can you imagine doing this intervention at some point?

    Sullivan has responded on this again.

    Sarah had better start wondering whether having tools like Fox News in your corner is a plus or a minus. Fox would never do her for ratings would they?

    “In an interview with Wolf Blitzer that will air today at 5:25 pm E.T. on CNN, Newt Gingrich said he will ask Sarah Palin “to play a major role” in his administration if elected President.”

      Apparently, Newt doesn’t think much of vetting either.

      Newt…What a fool! I hope you don’t mind. I’ve been chronicaling these types of headlines…I have to post this!! I’m sicken at the thought that this incompetent woman is still being talked about in terms of powerful positions. Has her words and deeds in these last 4 yrs not proved my point? Sarah is a run of the mill Liar, Cheat and Whore! Certainly nothing more!
