Conservatives to Palin: We’re over you.

They’re over her.

Sarah Palin’s odd, rambling speech last weekend before an audience of committed conservative activists in Des Moines has many influential voices on the right saying that the time has come to acknowledge that the romance has gone cold and the marriage is dead.

There is also a tone of soul-searching and even repentance in some of the commentary, as pundits on the right reconsider their own role in stoking the Palin phenomenon.

“In hindsight I regret contributing to the premature deification of Sarah Palin,” columnist Matt Lewis wrote Wednesday in the Daily Beast.

He added that “maybe her early critics saw some fundamental character flaw — some harbinger of things to come — that escaped me.”

Among those critics had been Washington Post op-ed columnist Kathleen Parker, who also weighed in after Palin’s speech contending that the Republicans had themselves to blame.

“In the end, the story of Palin’s rise and fall is a tragedy,” Parker wrote. “And the author wasn’t the media as accused but the Grand Old Party itself. Like worshipers of false gods throughout human history, Republicans handpicked the fair maiden Sarah and placed her on the altar of political expedience.”

    Oh, please. This woman made millions of $$$ scamming dumb people. If the so-called “right” could not see her for what she is, then they are as stupid as she is. Imagine if the Democratic party had anyone as stupid as PayMe in their ranks? The right would have made fun, run them off the stage. John McCain must be brain dead to actually have promoted this grifter as his VP. Maybe he DOES have alzheimers, after all the gop covers for their “leaders” (Reagan) who are afflicted with it.

    One of them, I forget who it was, said that she should sober up. Oh ya think? It’s about damn time people realized that Tundra Turd has an addiction problem to go along with her mental illness. What a bunch of dimwits. As for McCain, it boggles the mind that he thinks she would be a good president. She must have something really big on him for him to be so publicly stupid. What a bunch of clowns.

    Why do people keep referring to Palin’s rise and fall as a tragedy? She was like this all along. The tragedy is that people fell for her schtick in the first place, both citizenry and media alike.

      Tragedy? This toxic bloody woman has been destroying lives and raking in money for nothing since all of McCain’s synapses exploded and he picked her. I hope her downfall is horribly painful, publicly humiliating and excruciatingly embarrassing.

    Just when we think the toilet has been flushed, we see the Tundra Turd floating on the surface.

    Alaskans knew all along what an incompetent, uneducated, and partisan person Palin was from the start.

    She started the rumor when running for mayor that she was going to be the first “Christian” mayor, implying that Stein was Jewish. No racism there, right $arah?

    After the repub committee declared her Troopergate ethics violation was a fact, she immediately thought that meant not guilty.

    $arah Palin has been a social climber of the worst type, which was perfectly revealed in her lying about going to see Ivana Trump in 1996.

    She lied to Todd about going shopping, and went to Anchorage to adore the reflected glory of fame whore Ivana, and revel in the cloud of perfume and fashion.

    Quote:

    “Sarah Palin, a commercial fisherman from Wasilla, told her husband on Tuesday she was driving to Anchorage to shop at Costco. Instead, she headed straight for Ivana. And there, at J.C. Penney’s cosmetic department, was Ivana, the former Mrs. Donald Trump, sitting at a table next to a photograph of herself. She wore a light-colored pantsuit and pink fingernail polish. Her blonde hair was coiffed in a bouffant French twist.

    ”We want to see Ivana,” said Palin, who admittedly smells like salmon for a large part of the summer, ”because we are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamour and culture.”

    Palin…. DESPERATE for “glamor and culture’

    THAT Is $arah Palin’s whole reason for living besides money.
