Palin: Biden Drags Down The Ticket And Should Be Dumped

For those who feel that this campaign still lacks sufficient irony and breathtaking hubris, Sarah Palin came to the rescue yesterday. After Biden’s “back in chains” attack on Romney, Palin came forth to offer her sage advice. Palin explained that Joe Biden may be simply too controversial and unpredictable as a Vice Presidential candidate and should be dumped. That’s right, Sarah Palin said that without a hint of humor or self-conscious unease. It is at uncomfortably moments like this that Sheldon Cooper says “Bazinga.”

Palin explained that Biden “really drags down that ticket” and just has to be replaced. She explained
“the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.” It appears that Palin avoids throwing out such suggestions but just sharing it with a few choice friends on national television.

Just for the record, studies have found that Palin had the most negative impact on a presidential ticket of any modern campaign and cost McCain at least 1.6 percent of the vote. However, that did not make a difference in the election. What she did not do is produce a positive gain to the ticket, which McCain dearly needed. Moreover, many questioned McCain’s judgment in the selection — an impact that can be subtle and hard to measure.

For his part, I doubt Biden will add votes to the ticket but he is not likely to cost votes.

  1. Gene H:

    thank you, you never to cease to amaze me and I always know whatever you say will be entertaining and educational.

  2. Bron,

    Now you’re just being pedantic, as in narrowly, stodgily, and often ostentatiously learned, unimaginative or pedestrian. Argument by analogy does not require the analogy be exact. If that’s the best you’ve got, you should really give it a rest.

  3. Gene H:

    Mickey isnt a mouse, he is an abstraction from a mouse. He was an idea in the mind of Walt Disney. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I am not playing semantic games. It is very important for you to understand the difference between a mouse and a drawing of an anthropomorphic mouse.

    As you have said before “a thing is what it is” or something to that effect.

  4. Bron,

    You should really know better than to try a semantic argument with me by now. Besides, one is a caricature of a mouse and the other is a caricature of an allegedly rational human as politician. Caricature meaning exaggeration by means of often ludicrous distortion of parts or characteristics, a representation especially in literature or art that has the qualities of caricature or a distortion so gross as to seem like caricature. That fits the Killa from Wasilla to a “T”.

  5. Bron, that description of Mickey fits Palin as a politician (or even as an adult human) like a glove.

  6. mespo:

    I think they call that a slip of the tongue because of a lack of focus.

    I am sure you have never done something similar?

  7. “Mickey isn’t a mouse”

    he isnt, he is a cartoon caricature of a mouse. There is not much similarity except his name. He is a cartoon, he isnt real, so mickey is not a mouse, he is some one’s idea of a funny cartoon character.

  8. Yesterday was Connecticut, this must be Montana.
    “This is a great place.”
    (damn, lost my place marker, pick it up for me, crap, now the page blew away, what the F..k shall I do. adlib it? Where are the bears? They promised to be here to cover my mistakes……).
    “When the preceding big spender was in office…” (oh, he was Republican???…..)

  9. Jane:

    “You Libs keep thinking Palin is stupid.”


    Well, it’s hard to think otherwise:

  10. What GeneH said.

    And that’s as close as we’ll ever get.

    To the cons: Some values are eternal. Most of yours are just saying that “I want to keep mine, no matter how I stole it.”

  11. Don’t get me wrong. I think Russell Brand is lucky to have a career. Just because I agree with him on one point doesn’t mean I think he’s even slightly funny.

  12. I read the Huff thingy on Brand. Loved the photo of him with his wife. Could just see the bubble above her head with: “Isn’t he such a t#&d. Sigh!”. Her face said that.

    I could do Brand’s job easily. But the joke overload light would go on after 2 minutes. Besides who would want to do an old man? There went half of the audience.

  13. You can tell a lot about a person by whom they admire.

    You Cons keep thinking Palin is smart. Then again a lot of you think serial liar and stand up bigot comedian Rush Limbaugh is a genius, so there you have it. I guess she’s smart enough to fool you into giving her credit for keeping Clinton off the ticket when Obama did that himself long ago. Check your pants. They’re full. That black is white/war is peace nonsense may work some of the time, but claiming Palin is smart is like saying Mickey isn’t a mouse; a manifest untruth.

  14. You Libs keep thinking Palin is stupid. She has now just guaranteed that Biden won’t be replaced with Clinton and that is just the way she wants it. Checkmate.

  15. And what (I hate to say it) Russell Brand said. She’s got all the appeal of a porn star and none of the good sense or judgment.

  16. Palin: Cute and dumb, tyrannical and irrational, and she says “darn” a lot.

  17. nick:

    “Palin is an idiot. Why does everyone obsess w/ her?? ”


    She’s cute and dumb. Who could ask for anything more in today’s Republican leadership?
