Sarah Palin needs to go away... Third of three topics to kill dead.


I'm not one to hate people. Particularly people I don't know. But I feel such a strong dislike for all things Palin that it's a near thing. Like I seriously need to pray on it. She makes me crazy. I don't know the woman. And I have to admit that I don't want to. What I do know is that she refuses to go away. Like bad mold she creeps back into view and spreads herself around sometimes making people sick in the process. Is that harsh? Oh well.

It's to the point where I change the channel if she comes on or even if they start talking about her. I've put filters on my Twitter so I don't even see tweets with her name in them. I've decided that avoidance is the only way to go with her. 

So what's the problem, Chele? What's so bad about her?

I dislike insincere people. I dislike people who stepped (riverdanced) all over unsuspecting taxpayers to better their own circumstances. I dislike people who talk out one side of their hindparts with nothing (like pesky facts and truth) to back them up. I dislike bandwagoning. I dislike people who use the phrase "real Americans" like there is any such damn thing. I dislike women who pretend they aren't using their sexuality as a come-up. I dislike mothers who pimp their children for profit. And I dislike people who talk badly about my President when they can't hold a candle to him.

I don't think she's clever, I think she's a manipulator with a microphone and a stylist. I don't think she's an innovator, I think she's a talking head with a half-assed platform. I don't think she's what this country needs, I think she's what's wrong with this country on so many levels. Sound bites and photo ops but at the end of the day, what did you do but earn money for yourself and your pet causes? She's the Kim Kardashian of politics. #shadethrown #shotsfired

So here endeth my Palin rants. No more Palin in BougieLand. If (God forbid) she becomes President, I will live tweet my return to my ancestral homeland of Guyana where I will inform my cousins that my father financed most of their educations and I'm going to need a room. Immediately. With a satellite and wi-fi. At least for four years. Feel free to come visit. We'll call it BougieLand Caribe.

Thoughts on La Palin? Be forewarned, I have a short fuse about her. I will yank your comment if it crosses a line. The floor is yours...

I will be the first to say: I blame the McCain campaign for unleashing this Cracken on the world.

Alonda Lord said...

I second that!

Nandiehills said...

I am still puzzled as to why there is such a draw to this
woman, who, whenever she opens her mouth, leaves you gob smacked about the
rubbish that manages to come out of it. UN-freaking-believable! She should have
been gone and done with the minute she ‘saw Russia’ from her window! Why does she even still
get 'airtime?'

michaeldavis said...

If you do emigrate to Guyana, maybe I can get my 'Cousin Pete' on a get a room myself. 

As far as the post, I often wonder why news outlets continue to talk about Madame You Bet'Cha's every move? She is so disingenuous that she doesn't deserve news coverage.  Resume: zero intellectual curiosity, quit governor's post in first term, attended five colleges..she's really got that stick-to-it-tive-ness we love in America, huh? And most def the Kim K of politics.

sol_dier said...

I don't comment on her, I don't even speak her name. but I notice the cause and effect of her trending. 
I'm practising my 33 strategies of war, so learning ignorant speak for when one needs to confront the ignorant is cool.

Other than that.. blah. She doesn't even give me a rise at all.

Leopard_Print_Pumps said...

Ooooo that woman makes me mad. I failed to understand how we could have intelligent, charismatic, trailblazing women like Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton, and then have Sarah Palin introduced into that same mix. rozb is right: the McCain campaign most definitely had a brain fart.  And now Michelle Bachmann. iCan't with all the lunacy. Palin needs to get out of here with her shiggity and leave the rest of us the hell alone [trying to repair the damage she has done to our intellect].

Javalicious said...

Ouch! You REALLY don't like her. And I can see why. 

Man's World said...

Well said. She most definitely is the embodiment of entitled privilege. If she was of a different race, they would have laughed her off the stage by now. Complete puppet personality.

TypeALady said...

Unfortunately, the foolishness that is Pootie Tang Palin isn't going anywhere, anytime soon. As stupid as she makes herself look on the daily, MSM continues to grant her pass after pass. I was done with her when she couldn't even name not nary a paper that she read regularly...er, The Mat-Su Frontiersman, straight out of WASILLA, anyone? I have no plans on moving anytime soon, but please believe that I checked my passport's expiration date after her debacle in Boston the other day, you know, just in case...

CaliGirlED said...

This woman, along with others, is why I.can't. with politics. But like you said, I don't know her personally. However, my biggest problem with her is this, "I dislike mothers who pimp their children for profit". This right here puts me off with any mother and therefore discredits anything else they aspire to do in life.

Penny said...

IMO, underwear is a much more interesting topic.  Just sayin'

I totally agree!

Sarah Palin is a fungus that has not gone away.   She is a reminder of everything that is wrong with society and our political system.

I'm confused by how you really feel. Please elaborate.

Alvin Milton said...

I don't understand the fascination with her. The woman is a liar and the worst kind of "politician".

The whole Paul Revere/wikipedia thing that happened recently really knocked me on my tail.Backstory: She said Paul Revere rode through the colonies to warn the british about the colonists rather than the other way around and some of her followers tried to literally edit history via wikipedia as she stated it.Her degree of ineptitude is staggering and I truly wonder about the people that follow her. Like do they hear the truth or blinded by "new" & "shiny". Are some people so lost in this country that they'd latch on to any jackass on a stage spouting half truths or FULL ON LIES. IS this a person we can trust with the country, foreign policy etc. Gosh, the list goes on and on but in short, she is in need of a GTFOOH yo.

God Bless America, yo. Onlyest place where gun-totin' Trailer Park Barbie can make a run for Prez.
Good for her. Now may she learn to sit her winkin' non-thinkin' azz the entire f**k down.

Pure Choco said...

It was my only big beef with Oprah in recent years, having Palin on. Why? So you can pretend to be unbiased? Oprah know she don't give two shakes of a damn about that woman. I wouldn't have given her the airtime.

rozb said...

She is pathological about staying in the spotlight, and she is raising her kids to be just like her. Her stupidity is brutal, but her manipulation of the media is almost brilliant (must be the reception she sometimes gets from the metal plate I think is in her head). When I hear folks on television saying she is what America needs, I want to run straight for them, chop them in the thoat (yes - I said thoat), and push their Hoverround over the cliff at the Grand Canyon.

I was too through when folks who received vibrant real-time proof of her ignorance and ratchedassness went on Wikipedia and tried to alter the Paul Revere entry to suit her narrative. That is not cute - that is sad and crazy.

If you asked her if she knew whether water was wet she would probably say you asked her a "Gotcha" question and told you water was invented by our founding fathers to help real Americans grow their own oil. Seriously. This sounds like something she would say. Give a fool a platform and they can build an entire crazy house.

rozb said...

I wouldn't give her air at all. Suffocate her for real.

Trudy said...

Excellently written blog, especially the 5th paragraph. 

I feel the same way as you do. I've had some tweets about her but I won't blog about her. Honestly, I blame McCain. He started this. When he made that level of mediocre and despicableness something for americans to "aspire to" he unleashed a poison that even he seems regretful of. When gave his concession speech on Election Night, I think even then he realized the gravity of what he had done. His emotions seem to convey that. I hope after the next election and she loses, she will finally stop. However, I do not see her stopping prior to the election so that is something we all have to stomach. 

I too won't watch any channel where she is mentioned, no longer will click on articles about her (only clicked this one since it is yours) and now you reminded me, I have to put on a global filter on TweetDeck so I never see her name again. I keep dreaming that Romney or someone will get the nomination so that she won't be apart of the debates or media coverage leading up to the general Election, but I swear that the media does not give a damn, and neither does she, so her coverage will continue even if the election is Obama v. Romney. How utterly ridiculous. Sigh.

CorettaJG said...

I change the channel on her too. I can't take it anymore.  And this last kerfuffle with Paul Revere?  No ma'am.  I have had enough.

OneChele said...

I do love how people got all whipped up about bras and drawers but Palin, they're like "Meh."

BB Waite said...

Every time she trots out for something, I'm like "Huh?" But I can underestimate her. She's found a way to be relevant to a pocket of America that are loud and armed. Can't sleep on that.

Jesse said...

What does she DO? Is she a full-time person on Faux News? What is the woman's job title?
You know what,  I don't care. Never mind.

Mina B. said...

My sentiments EXACTLY!!! The Paul Revere thing KILLED me! These folks are seriously trying to convince everybody that PR's goal was to warn our enemy that we were about to attack? I do not understand her supports. I can't even comprehend what kind of people would encourage this woman to run for ANY office or continue to show up on my television screen.

There are no words.

CaliGirlED said...

 "God Bless America, yo. Onlyest place where gun-totin' Trailer Park Barbie can make a run for Prez"
This.right.here.

The female political version of Jim Jones. Her followers drank the kool-aid1

Cha Keziah said...

Well, just so you know, you have BougieCanadians here who would welcome you with open arms if BougieLandCaribe doesn't work out.

Re: Palin - I'm grateful she and I don't share a nationality. She annoys me. Those who emulate her annoy me. Those who exalt her annoy me. Those who mention her annoy me. I'm over her. 

Natasha Hunter said...

Cuz she's a "non-muthf*%*in' factor!"

Ugh... I know... you made me do it.  :)

Leon X said...

Why Sarah Palin will never be president? Let me count the ways:

She's too thin-skinned: Mrs. Palin entirely too insulated for her own good. She's only comfortable with answering pre-screened questions. Any question that she's not prepared to answer she dismisses as a "gotcha question." She will then play the victim role and and complain that the "lamestream media" got it wrong and is attacking her. The whole "Don't be so harsh on me. I'm just a girl" is completely sexist.

She's already quit once: When you're the governor of a state, you're basically the president of that state. Mrs. Palin as governor quit on the state of Alaska to make money. She broke her oath to Alaska not because of any wrongdoing, but because she wanted to get paper. Under any other circumstances that would be OK, except when you leave from the job for the reasons I just stated.

It's easy to sit in your armchair and criticize the president from there. It's way different when you have to sit in the chair.

EvolvingElle said...

My sentiments exactly, Chele.  All I can say is this-Palin is like a bad rash that won't go away...

Sarah said...

May I please have my name back? I stopped paying attention to her ages ago. I have the sometimes annoying ability to completely block out things that irritate me and I don't consider important. But I have to pout about the name. I've never thought about my name one way or the other, but now I feel like it has been besmirched.

On the bougie tip, Palin comes across very low rent to me. Good God, could you imagine her on a diplomatic tour overseas? No, let's not.

She's the Kim Kardashian of politics DEAD.

Mykeia said...

I am not a fan of this woman.  She just doesn't seem smart to me.  (Is that a bad thing to say?)  Call me shallow if you will, but I need my politicians to sound well, how do I say  this, well read/like they have some sense--she does not give that vibe to me.  I am ALL for informal lanugage but not on camera, with close friends only and well she does not follow this rule.  I don't ever have to hear the word gotcha again, ever. 
One last thing:  when you are on camera words that end in ing should be pronounced as such--this is my biggest pet peeve about this woman.  (No disrepect to anyone intended.)

William Martin said...

"very low rent" is an insult to low rent. After the erudition of Obama, I can't go back to President who can't run two sentences together without embarrassing the nation.

William Martin said...

winkin' non-thinkin' stinkin?

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

I wish I could sit McCain down, without any minders or journalists around, to ask him just WTBlueF was he thinking when he selected her as a running mate. I understand that he likely wanted a woman candidate to fill the gap left by Hillary's departure, but come ON! I refuse to believe that she was the best woman the Republican party had to offer.

Jazzy Jazz said...

LOL!

Jazzy Jazz said...

Tell 'em why you mad. LOL.

I wonder how she got her degree... she must have earned it on her back.#IJS. I hope there is not an accredited degree granting institution that took her seriously.

I need her to take many seats. I dont understand how someone can be so dumb. She should just go take care of that special needs child she has.

Angel Blanca said...

My mother just told me yesterday that she's ready to get her first passport ever, just so she will be ready should she-who-should-not-be-mentioned become president.  Luckily for me, I just renewed mine last year, so I'm ready to remain gone for nine years should that become necessary.

aishao1122 said...

I'm mad she had the dang people of the dictionary to actually put her 'word' that she darn well knew she (or at least someone let her know) that she said wrong.  What is the world coming to when they will put an idiot's word in the dictionary, that's just to show the kids "hey now need to get the English language, just make up whatever you want and we will put it in the dictionary just because your 'famous'". I can't stand that woman and I use that loosely
(I'm a daughter of an Linguistics Professor, and seeing this pisses me off, they talk down about blacks and 'ebonics' yet here they let this 'woman' just run through and tear up the language on the regular...)

she just set back the feminist movement back like a million trillion years. O_o

The great thing is that Americans are allowed to vote even when they are abroad!!!

Qalil said...

Betcha Uni. You literally have to have a well timed wink to get in.

Qalil said...

She couldn't even name any of the most popularly read papers in the country! I would have respected her if she named any of the rags that are sold in the checkout line at the grocery store. Enquirer, People Magazine, Archie Comics... something to show she has an interest and knowledge of something out there!

Qalil said...

I think they're just part of the un-dead. Hands extended forward, vacant gaze, drooling and waiting for the buzz words Obama, homosexual, immigrants, Amerrrrkan, repudiate, going rouge...

Sigh.

Qalil said...

Question is, why hasn't McCain been punished for his sin? Or are we waiting for judgement day? He needs to answer for this mess!!!

GammasWorld said...

I've been missing in Bougieland this week ... glad to be back tho.  Nothing else to say on this excellent post which expresses my feelings about that "woman" perfectly.  I will never, ever forgive McCain for unleashing her on the Lower 48.  

LadyJ501 said...

I have never posted before, but I had to weigh in on this one. Thank you from the bottom of my little Bougie heart, Chele. I am a former soldier married to a current soldier and the idea of her being our "Commander-In-Chief" makes me angry gag. You ever been so mad you feel like throwing up? Yep. It's that serious. There is a lot they teach you in the military, but her rising to anything more than a flash in the pan historical punchline is not something Uncle Sam can prepare you for. And I ain't no bandwagon hater. I knew I couldn't stand her way before the bells and whistles nonsense. So long as the hubs has the right hand raised, I can't ditch and claim somewhere else home, but I will openly follow your Tweets a la BougieLand Caribe should the unthinkable come to pass.

S/N - Kudos to you for this wonderful blog. I've been a fan for several months now and you have yet to disappoint. Many sincere thanks.

OneChele said...

Thanks for the great reply and many thanks for your ( and the hubs) sacrifice and service to our great nation!

rikyrah said...

the thing I always resented most about Caribou Barbie is that it's one thing to live your life with the knowledge of White Privilege. It's another thing to have it in the physical personification of Sarah Palin. That this obviously stupid and mediocre White woman has been thrust upon any national stage is an absolute farce. That she continues to be given any time after that Katie Couric interview is what having White skin will do in America. I'm with other folks - prove to me that the woman HAS a college degree, cause I simply don't believe it, whatsoever.

Evansaw said...

Don't worry, the pitbull in lipstick will never be President of the U.S.  She is being kept around to deflect attention off the real issues. She is like the "stand by" sign the networks would put up in the old days when they were having technical difficulties.  I think that her lack of commitment to Alaska was the death card for her. She only exists to annoy us.....
