Sarah Palin is campaigning again. Despite getting defeated five years ago because nobody took her seriously, she still hasn’t thought about changing her tactics.
Since 2008, the former Alaskan half term governor has been the voice and face of Obama bashers nationwide, carrying that torch right into her political grave.
Her latest dumb attention ploy: She posted a letter to President Obama on Facebook, much in the way teenage girls do while complaining Joe Jonas didn’t respond to their YouTube video inviting him to prom. In the letter, Palin, fishing for either a Senate seat or perhaps another job as a Fox News correspondent, said Obama is behind a “scandalous hat trick” in Washington and that he should carry his own umbrellas.
“Mr. President, when it rains it pours, but most Americans hold their own umbrellas,” Palin wrote. “Today in the Rose Garden you dismissed the idea of a Special Counsel to investigate the IRS scandal. With that, your galling political hubris shined bright in the midst of today’s dark clouds.”
Palin, like all big name Republicans, is berating the administration for the IRS scandal, the Justice Department’s collection of reporters’ phone records and, of course, Benghazi.
She alleges there’s a “systematic violation” of the Hatch Act within his administration, which makes it illegal for some federal employees to engage in political activity, but fails to provide name, proof or even much reasoning.
She also takes a hit at the press, alleging that reporters nationwide have been “duped” by the administration, and in the future should “provide a deserving public fairer, more intelligent coverage,” like Fox News.
Never change, Sarah Palin.
