Palin "Challenges" The Washington Post! A Frankenstein MonsterTaking The GOP To The WindMill

Image juxtaposition-ed based on behavior, not a comparison of physicals appearance.

On July 27th Sarah Palin placed this post on her Facebook page.  

Can you think of any reason Palin would reach out and challenge the Washington Post? If you visited the link above, you found out why within the first three sentences of the Facebook post. Palin has adopted "Impeach Obama" as her ticket to increase revenue and a draw viewers for her new cable network.  

Farther into the inane drivel post, Palin proves the full measure of her lack of intellect and a complete absence of judgment.  Take a quick read.

The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.
"The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offense is long." 

Palin or someone in her camp wrote. Yet, the opportunist carnival barker fails to name even one "impeachable" offense.  I trust her handlers have informed her the words "High crimes and Misdemeanors" are integral to the congressional action. Actual verbiage from the US Constitution reads as such:
The Constitution, Article II, Section 4: 
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
In any case, the 50 Impeachment votes enacted since ratification of the US Constitution, were performed within the clearly stated script of the Constitution. 

The GOP has flirted with the "I" Word as script for town hall meetings.  But, the talk died-down once the vacationing members of the House returned to DC.

The 2013 House Summer Recess was obviously accompanied with "impeachment" playbook mantra for excitement of those town hall constituents. The chatter stuck with a few members of the House who continue to clamor about "impeachment."  But they are few, yet we must while recognize the House if full of obedient GOP representatives who will vote (lockstep) to cut the branch on which they sit. 

Impeachment dogma reminds of GOP mantra about shutting down the US government from 2009 until they accomplished the $29 billion dollar feat last year. The shutdown was horrid waste of resources, opportunity to address real national issues and  slam against legislative public perception that will accompany an impeachment procedure. Some Palin(esque) members of the House would like nothing better than an impeachment process while they completely shirk any responsibility regarding legislation for the good of the nation. But, know that those members of Congress will avoid stepping into the arena with the Washington Post.  

If you skipped reading the full scope of Palin's Facebook post, it is worth the time and you will not be burden with typical Palin vernacular. Hence, the words seem to come from a ghost writer. 

Palin wrote:

"I challenge you"

If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.

Have you ever heard of the psychological states of "delusions of grandeur" or "deluded""delusional?" 

Flawed GOP strategy and extremely poor judgment from GOP power-brokers handed John McCain the Palin Frankenstein Monster and she will not go away. Of course not, she has been given the gift of extreme wealth for simply spewing drivel without any accompanying investment to improve her intellectual capacities. She stated: "I challenge you!";  " bed with Obama!" Can you imagine the scope and weight of a Palin challenge.

Like the fabled Frankenstein Monster's trodding through the countryside and local village, Palin is meandering around destroying the periphery of the GOP and showing a sad  conservative underbelly with personal gain ans impetus.

The Post responded, as anyone with a modicum on intelligence should expect. The Post hit where it had to hurt most, but pulled up shy of a complete nuclear response. Palin's brainless effort to increase her net worth via "challenging" the storied publication was destroyed via her own social networking incompetence. She also fell victim to typical conservative shortsightedness. The attack against the Washington Post on Palin's Facebook page sits mere inches above a post of praise the media giant.  "DUH."

A little contemplation of covering one's backside can ward off plunging a Bonsai Samurai Sword up one's own rear end. And, yes running-up against the Washington Post is comparable to a futile Bosai charge while facing (Palin will  love this) 50 caliber machine gun placements. 

Samuel Warde's Liberals Unite captured the kerfuffle as well as any social media. 

We offer a sample excerpt.
On Monday, Washington Post published a rebuttal to Palin’s post beginning with a video clip of Palin’s now infamous interview with Katie Couric, during which Palin unable to name a single national publication that she read. Couric went on to win a Cronkite Award with the judges calling Couric’s interview with Palin a “defining moment in the 2008 presidential campaign.” A film clip was later leaked showing Couric mocking Palin. 

Below is the clip of Palin fumbling the question about what publications she reads, followed by the Washington Post rebuttal.

As we learned about the GOP's surprise from the North in 2008, we grew (like Katie Couric) to realize she was lacking in something. Early on, it was impossible to discern and define "something", it became obvious shortly thereafter. Palin has a lesser degree of intellect coupled with poor judgment and communication skills more common what has come to be known as the"bimbo." The reference to the gender based "bimbo" shouldn't offend as Palin is a woman. We could have used reference to Pvt. Gomer Pyle, or even better Barney Fife of Andy of Mayberry. 

As Couric spent a few days with the Palin caravan just after her selection to run with McCain, I strongly suspect the astute Couric listened to Palin's communication and realized: "This woman could not be well-read. Who speaks like this?" Thus questions about her reading preferences. Turns out, Palin's answer was an indication of "No reading." A fact that became clear to the rest of the nation once she started to speak before the cameras. It was so bad, the McCain camp withdrew Palin from media questioning, unless McCain was sitting or sitting within feet of the VP candidate.

Palin should consider herself better off the Washington Post exercise the "nuclear option." The publication did not roll-out other evidence of personal issues that center around Paul Revere, role of the vp In the US Senate and "Putin flying over Alaska." 

Let's see how this kerfuffle unfolds.  I will place my money on the Washington Post. But, Palin wins in either case, as people who fall for her false mantra and tune-in to her network have ignored issues of credibility.  We see a win for Palin, but possibly not a win for the GOP. She could be continuing to do for the GOP as the Frankenstein Monster did for his creator.

Whatever the case, Palin will probably think about more before running-up (pit-bull with lipstick) against the Washington Post.
