Sarah Palin is being Sarah Palin again, go figure. In her latest bout with logic, reason, and common sensibilities, The ex-Governor of Alaska has suggested that animals dying so the “rest of the country can benefit” should “take one for the team.”
The ridiculous doesn’t end there. Palin, who once claimed she was a foreign policy expert because a nearly uninhabited island off the coast of her state has a view of the Russian coast on sunny days, had some dumber-than-dirt remarks to make in a speech at the North American Prospect Expo in Texas recently.
“The animals mate under the pipeline,” said Palin, later admitting “I haven’t actually seen it.”
A search for “animals mating under the pipeline” brought up only one relevant picture to this story, courtesy of Reverb Press:
My research tells me that’s a neo-Christian lunatic in her natural habitat: Making a fool of herself on camera.
If it is to hurt one caribou, then that one caribou should take one for the team and allow the rest of the country to benefit.
While nobody expects Palin to make an actual run at the Presidency, conservatives still hold her in high regard. A recent story about conservatives claiming Palin was ten times smarter than President Obama showed Palin to be ten times dumber than a box of broken light bulbs.
Progressives would love to see Palin hit the campaign trail again, as her tendency to say the most idiotic of things is always good for a laugh. Who can forget her famous spiel about Paul Revere riding into Lexington:
[Paul Revere] who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.
Classic. Comedy gold. Tina Fey did a great job spoofing her on Saturday Night Live in a part that needed very little creativity to bring to life.
All she had to do was act like Palin and the laughs came rolling in.
