The Joke’s On You

The Founding Bloggers:

Founding Bloggers can confirm that we too captured an image of the writing on Governor Palin’s hand. The notes appear to be very innocuous.

On the other hand, the outrage on the left is being completely misunderstood by the right.

Who is outraged? We’re all hysterical. This is funny stuff. I think it is awesome that the lead wingnut in the country is such a dim bulb that she has to have “budget tax cuts” on her hand to remind her what she stands for. Put it this way, since this is Black History Month, this is akin to seeing “civil rights” written on MLK’s hand.

No one is outraged by Palin- we’re laughing at her and we are laughing at her supporters.

    Scarborough was trying to defend her this morning while Andrea Mitchell was taking the piss by having notes written on her hand. He just kept shaking his head and saying “I’m just saying, relying on a teleprompter all the time is different than having a few notes written on your hand” the rest of the panel just laughed a him. I can’t wait to see The Daily Show’s take on this.

    I’m sure this only proves that Sarah Palin is a better public speaker than Barack Obama, and once people realize that the Obamenace tricked them all into voting for him back in 2008, they’ll all come around and run him out in 2012.

    I want her to run so badly I can almost taste it. I don’t hunt, but I know people who do, and I imagine they sometimes feel this sort of giddiness at the potential.

    @Litlebritdifrnt, Scarborough is exactly right that there’s a big difference between the teleprompter and the hand notes. The fact that he thinks the difference is in favor of Palin shows that he’s a moron or a Republican hack.

    If Palin’s notes had been some economic figures, for example, then this wouldn’t have blown up the way it has. The problem for her is that the things she wrote are so obvious and should be second nature for any Republican politician.

    I don’t think Palin is particularly bright, but at the same time, does anyone suspect this may have been planned? She does something that nobody who deserves to be in such a high profile position would do, she’s rightfully mocked for it, and then she gets to play the victim. She could have sat on a pet before going on stage and her supporters would have found some way to excuse it, so the only reactions she really needs to be concerned with are those outside of her base.

    If she is manipulating people in this way, I have to say, it’s pretty clever.

    Comrade Mary says:

    Most people seem to think that the notes are a foolish error that will make Palin look bad to those who might have started off even slightly sympathetic to her. Lance Mannion disagrees, and I think he has a point.

    Try to make the case that this is a sign of what a dope she is and most people will look at you like you’re being a jerk. That’s because most people can’t, and know they can’t, speak in public even if they were handed a detailed speech to read from, let alone stood up to speak prepped with a few hastily scrawled notes on their hand, cuff, or index cards.
    __
    Palin’s cribnotes are something that makes her “regular folks.” Yes, what the President was able to do in his Q & A with Congressional Republicans, giving detailed and specifically factual answers off the cuff while speaking in complex and parsable sentences, was truly impressive. It’s also one of the things that make him an “other.” Regular folks can’t do that.
    __
    Sure, it’s a sign of how smart he is, but we live in a country where that kind of intelligence is suspect. The ability to out-talk, out-argue, and out-think other people is also the ability to out-smart them. Nobody likes to be out-smarted. Bad things happen to you when you are out-smarted. And how do you know when you’re being out-smarted? When you start to feel really dumb.
    __
    Doesn’t matter if the person who is out-smarting you isn’t doing it to be mean or to trick you or to make you feel stupid, you can’t help it, you’re going to feel not as smart as they are. There are two ways to react that feeling. With modesty: “Guess I’d better do some more homework if I’m going to keep up.” Or with vanity: “Who does that asshole think he is, talking to me like I’m some kind of idiot?”
    __
    Guess which one most people choose instinctively. Sarah Palin doesn’t make anyone feel dumb. In fact, she makes a lot of people feel too smart. Particularly liberals.
    __
    It’s useless to try to talk about how smart or dumb Sarah Palin is anyway, because she does not operate that way. She doesn’t “think” in the usual sense of the word. She reacts to her own moods and instincts, most of which are apparently expressions of her vanity and ego. That’s why she is not all that well-liked outside of the base that adores her. Women, especially, don’t like her, not because she’s stupid, but because she holds such a high opinion of herself and such a low opinion of anybody who isn’t enraptured by Sarah Palin.
    __
    When people say they don’t think she’s qualified to be President, I don’t think they mean just that she isn’t smart enough or intellectually well-enough prepared or mentally disciplined enough. I think they mean that she is too wrapped up in her own self. It’s obviously all about her.
    __
    But it’s not because she has to write notes to herself to get through a major public speaking engagement. Make fun of that about her and you are making fun of everybody whose knees shake, voice fails, lips go dry, foreheads sweat, and minds go blank when they’re put in front of an audience of any size. Ever been to a wedding where the best man needed note cards to get through the toast and still blew all his punchlines? It’s not easy to speak in public.

    I think we should pay a lot of attention to what Joe Scarboy thinks, since he is such an even-handed, bipartisan analyst.

    And I think the main problem with Palin’s hand-notes, other than the ridiculous god-damned point that this crazy venal dumb liar has anything to do with national politics and the fact that she has followers even more disgustingly bizarre, is that they weren’t notes suggesting points she wanted to cover.

    She doesn’t and can’t ‘expound’ on a note saying “tax cuts”, she just repeats the phrase over and over in different ways.

    Rick Taylor says:

    It’s extraordinary how extreme the right wing reality distortion field has become. It should be obvious to anyone, left, right, or center, that whatever one thinks of his policies, Obama is a smart guy. He doesn’t just give wonderful prepared speeches; he was able to field questions from a adversarial audience of Republicans and more than hold his own. Sarah Palin has never been able to do anything like that (nor has George Bush for that matter), and she ended up demonizing Katie Couric for asking questions like what books do you read, or what did you mean when you said living in Alaska gives you foreign policy experience. And yet in the wingnut universe Obama is a young man over his head who can’t function without a teleprompter, and Palin would make a great President. I seriously don’t know how we got here.

    I don’t know about her teeth but I can’t argue about the moron part, you got that right on the money.

    60th Street says:

    Y’know, I haven’t heard anyone really say it yet, but, It’s fun to ponder why Palin scratched out “budget” and wrote “tax” cuts instead.

    Both of these are signature Republican talking points, BUT, much has been said in public recently about the Republicans opposing their own issues when Obama has come out for them. Obama himself has been underscoring this and trying to driving it home to Americans in recent events.

    Could it be that she scratched out “budget” because Obama has recently touted freezing non-discretionary spending and this is an example of how he has successfully neutralized a time-honored republican talking point?

    Of course he has also touted how he has cut taxes, but it might be worth thinking about the potential effectiveness of the approach Obama’s been taking in confronting the talking points.

    The hand thing looks stupid to me but I agree with those who are saying it may not look stupid to Palin’s fans.

    Sorry I don’t have the link, but there’s a video of a guy interviewing Palin fans waiting for her book-signing. He asks them what it is that they like about Palin. One says she would make a good president so he follows up by asking what good things Palin would do as president. After a long pause, the interviewee says ‘cut government spending’. He asks what government spending in particular should be cut, and after an even longer pause, interviewee smirks and says ‘all of it!’ and seems very proud of her clever answer.

    This kind of fan admires Palin’s stupid reply to Couric’s softball question about what she reads. They think it’s clever. And they think using hand scribbles to remember that she’s in favor of tax cuts is also clever.

Women aren’t turned off by a woman who has a high opinion of herself any more than men are. Hillary has a devoted following among women, and it’s not because of Hill’s quiet modesty and overwhelming self-doubt.

    No, women, especially, don’t like Sarah Palin because we know the game she’s playing and how destructive it can be. We understand that when Tweety keeps talking about how she’s “just dynamite!” that her gambit – using her sex appeal to garner political power – is working. Her MO is to cajole and charm men and to put anybody who doesn’t play her game (principally women, but some men who can stop thinking with their dicks, at least when it comes to their jobs) and who challenges her down hard, and when that stops working, run away. Men who fall for this shit just never seem to get it that they’re being played until it’s too late.

    Watching Palin flip through her note cards as she gave her speech the other night (I made it to the 3 minute mark — perhaps among the top 10% of Balloon Juice readers in Palin Persistence) I realized what a corner the republicans, particularly Palin, have put themselves in. You can’t mock teleprompter use while using a teleprompter, and teleprompters are a very useful tool..
    The good news for republicans is that their minions will forget all about the evils of teleprompter use in a few weeks when republicans figure its not worth the bother and start using them themselves again. The good new for democrats is the present amusement of watching republicans pause, squint at notecard/palm of hand while giving speeches mocking teleprompters.

    Made the mistake of visiting a chat board this morning that has lots of wingers and that’s all they were talking about — Obama is an affirmative action president who only gets by because of a teleprompter. Whereas, Palin is smart and only gets by with A FEW NOTES written on her hand.

    I really don’t think I can be in the same country as these folks.

    @Steve M.:

    I wouldn’t bet any money on that.

    It amazes me to see people worried about Palin being elected president. No one in power on the left is going to respond to any of her idiocy, for that would just give her attention and relevance that she doesn’t really have, except for the fawning media. But what is happening, I’m sure, is that Dem operatives and potential Repub opponents are quietly taking note of the ever-increasing inconsistencies and inanities, and will hit her hard when the time is right. She won’t know what hit her or how to respond, and no notes on her hand will be able to rescue her. It will be ugly.

    Personally, I don’t see her ever running. Teasing that she might is much more lucrative.

    @Comrade Mary: couple of things about that snippet. first, yah, sure, lots of people have public speaking issues. if you are going into a career path where you have to do a lot of public speaking, such as politics, you fucking take classes. also, you use note cards. no one is really going to care if you need notes (well, unless you try and make the use of notes or a prompter a negative). but writing on the back of your hand says one of two things: either you aren’t prepared/organized enough to remember note cards or you are trying to pretend you don’t need them. neither speaks well.

    i dearly hope, though i suspect i’m wrong, that most people aren’t suspicious of intelligence. i want a president whom i believe is smarter than i am. i want the people governing the country to be fucking geniuses. never have and never will understand the apparent anti-intellectualism of this country. why is being smart a bad thing? isn’t that what one is supposed to aspire to?

    I was wrong about George Bush, but I’m going to go out on a limb anyway and say there’s no way Palin will be elected. She can give good speeches when she’s in front of a friendly crowd; she falls apart in any other setting. During the last election, McCain’s handlers did everything they could to keep her away from the press. It was bad enough doing that with the Vice Presidential candidate; you couldn’t get away with that with the Presidential candidate.

McCain, Romney, Jindal – We hate all of them, but the public doesn’t share the same kind of disdain they do for Palin.

    If she runs she is going to be exposed; the ignorance, the pettiness, the inconsistencies will eventually become obvious to all but the most devoted of her followers. And if that happens, the Gravy Train stops, and she goes away.

    Besides the fact that everything Palin has done fits with the theory that she’s trying to cash in for as little work as possible, who in the Republican party owes her anything? That’s how you get the nomination. Being a born grifter doesn’t make contributing to the favor bank real easy. She’s not going to stump around Iowa for months, not for herself and certainly not for anyone else, and it looks like she’s managed to rip off and/or piss off a number of key internal constituencies.

    I’m guessing feinting at a run every once in a while to keep the interest and money inflow going, then possibly some desultory support of whatever candidate throws the most toys her way, and then riding the rubber chicken circuit until she’s doing Elks lodges in West Bumfuck.

    FWIW, I can’t see a scenario where Palin even – wants – to enter the GOP Primaries, not with the shitstorm of negativity she’s bound to recieve from her rivals. But I – can – see her trying to leverage her popularity with the Teabaggers to lock up the VP spot on a Republican ticket. After all, if her job is simply to keep the Base fired up and eager to vote, then she has a clear field to run the campaign she wanted to in 2008, before that nasty McCain reined her in and prevented the greatest political comeback since Lazarus was voted Gravedigger for the Bethany district.

    Sure, it’d be a disaster of seismic proportions, but keeping the gravy-train going requires that she give her followers what they crave come election time, i.e. the opportunity to vote for her. It’s either let the Teabaggers force her to enter the Primaries as a write-in candidate – which would split the GOP down the middle and make her a candidate for a one-way trip in an unmarked SUV driven by Dick Cheney – or she makes it known that she’s willing to settle for another run at the VP spot, and guarantees the Teabagger vote.

    They lose, big time, but she’s still still cool with Der Base, and so she still makes money.

They see Hilary Clinton and think, “Must get a woman.” It doesn’t matter what woman. Any woman would do. If they were serious, they could have gotten a more worthwhile candidate like Snowe (I didn’t say a good candidate, just one more worthwhile than Palin), but no. They were thinking they needed a woman with pizazz and the ‘wow’ factor.

    @Violet: I gotta agree with you (re: 50). As much as we like to laugh at Palin, there is a significant part of the electorate that thinks she’s just the greatest thing since cheese on toast.

    Yeah, well Obama can’t even TALK without using a teleprompter, and he’s a Chicago style crook and Acorn killed my grandmother and WHERE’S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE and he’s a Muslim atheist communist nazi Marxist fascist and I’m not a racist, he’s the racist and I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!!!

    Sarah Palin is the smartest, bestest person in the world and if you don’t agree it’s because you’re just jealous of her beauty, money and superduper intelligence.

    @Rick Taylor:

    And yet in the wingnut universe Obama is a young man over his head who can’t function without a teleprompter, and Palin would make a great President.

    Republican presidents haven’t been REAL presidents for a while. They are just figureheads now. No matter how scanty the qualifications of wingnut candidates, their base knows that someone is pulling the strings from offstage, and they don’t need to worry what the puppet does…all they need to do is enjoy the show.

    With Democrat candidates, it is different, at least for the moment.

    @asiangrrlMN: I think it’s less that she’s not up for the work (Because the getting dragged around early caucus states part would be interspersed with adoring crowds shouting racist shit for her to smile at and later pretend she didn’t hear) than that she is incapable of submitting to coaching. Someone spending several hours a day telling you to change! She’s a textbook narcissist. Can you imagine her faulty wiring tolerating that?

    Ms. Doesn’t know why Korea is two countries doesn’t stand a chance shy of serious handling. With astute handling, maybe.

    I still have hope that she pulls the republican party into two. It’s a self-protective system, but she’s still giving it her best shot.

    Who is outraged? We’re all hysterical. This is funny stuff. I think it is awesome that the lead wingnut in the country is such a dim bulb that she has to have “budget tax cuts” on her hand to remind her what she stands for. Put it this way, since this is Black History Month, this is akin to seeing “civil rights” written on MLK’s hand.

    There’s a reason why we’re condescending!
