Palin: “Don’t Retreat, Instead RELOAD!”

Seeing is believing…


Er, okay. So I mosey on over to her facebook page:

With the president signing this [blah, blah, blah] takeover of our health care system [blah, blah, blah] We’re going to reclaim the power of the people [blah, blah, blah] We’re going to fire them [blah, blah, blah] thanks to their destructive government-growing policies. [blah, blah, blah] [blah, blah, blah] Come November, we’re going to print pink slips [blah, blah, blah] We’re paying particular attention to those House members who voted in favor of Obamacare and represent districts that Senator John McCain and I carried during the 2008 election. [blah, blah, blah] to make sure that those who replace them are Commonsense Conservatives. [blah, blah, blah] hold them accountable [blah, blah, blah] They are: Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-1), Harry E. Mitchell (AZ-5), Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-8), John Salazar (CO-3), Betsy Markey (CO-4). Allen Boyd (FL-2), Suzanne M. Kosmas (FL-24), Baron P. Hill (IN-9), Earl Pomeroy (ND-AL), Charlie Wilson (OH-6), John Boccieri (OH-16), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-3), Christopher Carney (PA-10), John M. Spratt, Jr. (SC-5), Tom Perriello (VA-5), Alan B. Mollohan (WV-1), and Nick J. Rahall II (WV-3).[blah, blah, blah] [blah, blah, blah] [blah, blah, blah] Stand tall, America. Real change is coming!

Yeah, yeah. She’s targeting 20 in the house. The text is tame compared to the creepy tweet. But then there’s her target-strewn graphic putting those Dems in the crosshairs:


Salon’s Joan Walsh:

Reload, Mrs. Palin? Most (but probably not all) Palin supporters may insist the tuckered-out former Alaska governor meant “reload” metaphorically. But in a country where angry right-wingers carry guns to see the president speak, and spit on African-American congressmen, I thought it was a chilling statement. Will any Republican denounce Palin’s language?

Will any?

RELATED: I’m not finding anything new on Solly Forrell or Jay Martin, the two so angered by the passage of health reform that they tweeted a call for the assassination of President Obama. But the “window war,” anti-Democratic vandalism that a blogger in Alabama (questionably) claims to have started, is getting results. TPM’s Justin Elliott tallies the damage done in the “mini-epidemic of brick-throwing.”

    Yeah, I got another e-mail from McCain wanting money to repeal the bill. It’s easier to ask for money to fight the other side, but I haven’t seen any believable cost cutting ideas from them either, and I wouldn’t trust them to implement one if they did. Too many yip-dog (bark at the idea, but run away if you get too close) moments.

  • NotFullyBaked

    So, McCain’s “repeal” is not considered “working on a bill”? I thought he quit, too? (In response to ProfE.)

  • DLS

    “wanting money to repeal the bill”

    Gee, that’s innovative.

    “We will X… by opposing…evil liberal progressive Marxist radical Democrat item Y”

  • This is not Going Rogue. . . .this is going RAMPAGE !

  • DLS

    Joe W. — there’s nothing to worry about. Military and sports lingo are he-man American (Republican) stuff.

  • DLS

    ” .this is going RAMPAGE !”

    That term is reserved for what we’re concerned the Democrats may do now, worst case.

    Look at some of the major donors to SarahPAC and you will realize that this “gun sights” graphic is no accident:
    Harold Simmons – funded SwiftBoaters against Kerry and the Ayers/Obama video in the 2008 election – $5000 via ContranPAC. Bradley O’Leary (and wife) – creator of “Audacity of Deceit” video 2008 campaign – $10,000. Richard Willich – organizer of “Leaded Tea Party” in Florida last year featuring a shooting range – $5,000.
    This is a well organized, well funded effort to incite and manipulate. Sarah Palin and SarahPAC have set themselves squarely in the heart of it.

    • shannonlee

      In the end, Sarah is just trying to sell a TV show. I have the feeling that she has completely sold out and is only interested in her next payoff. More power to her….make all the money you can. She isn’t going to incite people anymore than they already are.

      In light of current events….what I wrote above was stupid.

  • JSpencer

    Just because Palin can’t help indulging in irresponsible language doesn’t mean her apologists have to automatically fall in line. None of us benefits from low standards in the long run. Less kneejerking and more thinking is advised.

  • ksb43

    LOL. This nimrod becomes more and more irrelevant every day. She just doesn’t realize it yet.

  • Silhouette

    No, on the contrary, she is quite relevant. Every time Caribou Barbie opens her audacious mouth, she succeeds in polarizing more thinking non-rabid moderate republicans from their agenda. She is the female Glenn Beck…

    Thank you Sarah. Thank you!

  • vey9

    Hey! Alan Grayson isn’t on the hit list?
    “I look forward to an honest debate with Governor Palin on the issues, in the unlikely event that she ever learns anything about them,” Grayson said. His campaign added that “[s]cientists are studying Sarah Palin’s travel between Alaska and Florida carefully. They hope to learn more about the flight patterns of that elusive migratory species, the wild Alaskan dingbat.”

  • DLS

    “Sarah is just trying to sell a TV show”

    Related to that is a bifurcation of “trajectories.”

    Palin is exploiting her popularity, but is going downward — heading for a reality show. (Okay, so Springer ran for office, but with Palin this is seen by everyone as not an upward but as a downward trajectory.)

    Meanwhile, with creepy (Huey Long-ish?) personality-cult overtones, Glenn Beck’s exploting his current controversy and popularity (beyond a lot of marketing or huckstering) is successful (aided by lefty abuse, but defiinitely on Beck’s own initiative) is demonstrating an upward trajectory, at least for now. Hmmm…

  • DLS

    Regarding the foregoing. No need to panic, but note and file that Beck someday could be “drafted” for political office to “rescue” America from the Marxist and Satanic “progressives.” No panic — just note it.

    • shannonlee

      Don’t forget Rachel Maddow

      • SteveK

        Some might wonder which would be more competent, more prepared to hold public office:

        A) A Stanford University graduate with a BA in Public Policy AND a Rhodes Scholar with a Doctor of Philosophy degree in politics from Oxford University.


        B) A quitter that needed five years and five schools to get a BA in Journalism.

        Going to have to think about it… O.K. that was easy, next question please.

        • shannonlee

          I wasn’t knocking Maddow…I just happened to catch one of the TMV ads on the right and it said….

          Maddow not running for Senate?

          or something like that.

          • SteveK

            shannonlee, I didn’t think that you were. Your bringing her up made me smile at the comparison… nothing more. Thanks 🙂

      • DLS

        “Don’t forget Rachel Maddow”

        She’s often illogical or childish with her lefty stuff, but as far as “delivery” or “production,” she’s definitely good, a cut above many others, and someone with a future on the air waves, if that’s what she chooses.

  • SteveK

    illogical or childish with her lefty stuff

    You poor thing you, you appear incapable of writing a complete sentence without unnecessary grade school ad hominem.

  • Sarah Palin is quick study; she learned a lot on the McCain campaign trail…she went from urban moose hunting politician to a metro daytime politico talker.
