Unelectable

That’s one way to describe Palin in light of this:
In case you missed it, small government crusader and Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin’s TLC reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” received a $1.2 million subsidy from the state of Alaska. The show spent $3.6 million on production in the state, meaning that Alaskan taxpayers covered a third of the cost of the show. The show will apparently not have a second season.
I’m not suggesting that Palin planned this, or that she’s ripping off the taxpayers, or doing anything that is unethical, immoral, or illegal.  She’s simply being imprudent.  Is it really wise for a potential presidential candidate to be the star of a TV show that receives a sizable government subsidy?  Especially when said star/candidate champions cutting smaller government and lower spending?

Sarah Palin isn’t wrong.  She’s just stupid.  And that’s what makes her so unelectable.

  1. At least she's entertaining. If (as Obama seems to be demonstrating) it really doesn't matter who we elect, they're all bought and paid for, then I'd almost look forward to a Palin Whitehouse just purely for the lulz.

  2. I agree that she's entertaining (even more so than Obama and Biden combined). And if we're going to go down, may as well go down laughing, right?

    However, I get tired of neo-con friends telling me that Palin would be easily elected (and, more laughably, that she's a serious candidate) when she keeps doing stupid stuff like this. The MSM is not her firend, so she at least needs to be prudent if she's going to be elected. After that happens she can go back to being her entertaining self.
