Stupid is like a box of chocolates…

…you can keep eating them but you’ll wind up fat and dumb.

Seriously, how stupid, misinformed, gleefully ignorant, is Sarah Palin and the folks that actually like her? Befor you respond, consider the following.

Sarah Palin Gets The 2nd Amendment And Paul Revere’s Ride Wrong

While in Boston (apparently at bunker Hill), Palin said the following about Paul Revere’s Ride

“He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”

Interestingly enough, she is intentionally misrepresenting historical fact or a complete idiot.

On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren and instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. After being rowed across the Charles River to Charlestown by two associates, Paul Revere borrowed a horse from his friend Deacon John Larkin. While in Charlestown, he verified that the local “Sons of Liberty” committee had seen his pre-arranged signals. (Two lanterns had been hung briefly in the bell-tower of Christ Church in Boston, indicating that troops would row “by sea” across the Charles River to Cambridge, rather than marching “by land” out Boston Neck. Revere had arranged for these signals the previous weekend, as he was afraid that he might be prevented from leaving Boston).

On the way to Lexington, Revere “alarmed” the country-side, stopping at each house, and arrived in Lexington about midnight. As he approached the house where Adams and Hancock were staying, a sentry asked that he not make so much noise. “Noise!” cried Revere, “You’ll have noise enough before long. The regulars are coming out!” After delivering his message, Revere was joined by a second rider, William Dawes, who had been sent on the same errand by a different route. Deciding on their own to continue on to Concord, Massachusetts, where weapons and supplies were hidden, Revere and Dawes were joined by a third rider, Dr. Samuel Prescott. Soon after, all three were arrested by a British patrol. Prescott escaped almost immediately, and Dawes soon after. Revere was held for some time and then released. Left without a horse, Revere returned to Lexington in time to witness part of the battle on the Lexington Green.

Next up, she either can’t spell, or is incredibly stupid:

Sarah Palin Gets The Name Of The Statue Of Liberty Wrong

She recently mis-tweeted the name of Statue Of Liberty.

Here is the tweet:

Keep in mind that this is a woman wants Republicans to believe that she can become their next president. I honestly believe that somewhere in the morass that is her brain she keeps thinking “Hey, how tough can it be to be president, Morgan Freeman did it.”

Further, I feel that either she’s afraid of deciding on even the most simple of choices for fear of offending someone who chose the other thing, or she flat-out doesn’t know the answer.

Sarah Palin Can’t Name Her Favorite Founding Father

Recently even Fox crazyman, and Palin acolyte Glenn Beck called her non-response bullshit.

Then, of course, she decided to bitch-slap fellow Republican Mitch Romney about his stance on Health Care on the very same day that Romney announced that he was running for President. In regards to her upstaging Romney, the thing is, when you’re a media whore, it never occurs to you that someone else deserves the spotlight for a moment or two, even if that person is ostensibly on your team.

Finally, it is no wonder that she would criticize Romney for his (nearly identical) version of “Obamacare” because, when Governatrix of Alaska, she signed a bill that would force raped women to pay for their own forensic rape kits.

Yeah, We totally want this ignorant, insensitive, crazy woman to be our next president.

The Perfessor.

The Circus has come to town

Seriously, does anyone still give Sarah Palin any creditability as a viable Presidential candidate? Well yes, she is charismatic and the camera seems to love her, but really, shouldn’t we be asking for more from our potential (if not actual) leaders?

Listen to Chris Matthews dissect her latest word-fest even as she both defends and derides Newt Gingrich for calling Paul Ryan’s budget “Right Wing Social engineering” and calling for a more moderate approach, as (apparently) does most of the country.

Remove the surveyor’s marks, the party’s over

We here at Cuppacafe are always on the lookout for what’s new and fun and remarkable. Often over the last few years, we’ve run up against something that’s hard to look away from. I’ve posted on it, pundits and comedians have made several dollars poking fun at it, and right wing whackos have embraced it.

That’s right. I’m talking about political statue of Sarah Palin. Apparently with the shootings in Tucson, the news has made the icon of Sarah more than she actually is. We’re no longer talking about the the person, this poor little girl who went through 5 colleges to get an degree in, well, whatever the hell she got a degree in, this poor little girl who by pluck and might became Wasilla, Alaska’s most famous mayor and resident.

No, we’re now talking about the icon that person was transformed into. A lighting rod for the right wing movement, a rallying point for the downtrodden rich idiots who want to turn events in this country back to the days of Joe McCarthy. Don’t get me wrong. Strip away the shell of persona that the icon is right now, and at the heart is still a live human being, a mother, a caring individual.

Unfortunately, this individual got there by enjoying the status of being a political attention whore.

Folks, we’re looking at the political equivalent of Snooki.

I’ll paste in this Stephen Colbert piece from last week about this whole media overkill about all things Sarah Palin —

and with it, I will speak no more the name of Moses Sarah Palin.

Well, until at least sometime in March.

Ladies and gentlemen, a Palin-drome

…or, as Jon Stewart remarked, Palin & Hanity Cognitive Dissident Hour: Special Victims Unit.

Yeah, we understand that Pailn likes to a) assume everything is about her (except when it actually is), but b) set herself up as the “real” victim in any set of events (again, making it all about her). Still, as Stewart very clearly demonstrates it is easy to pick on her when she is so disconnected from reality.

Need more evidence? check out the following video.

Sarah Palin in her own silence

Sometimes, the best thing to say is nothing at all.

I can see Russia from here!

This is the advice I wish Sarah Palin had taken before she released her speech about the Arizona tragedy.

Some bright person has removed all of the bull crap from Sarah’s speech, and reposted it.

If you want to hear Sarah speak volumes, just give this a close listen, and judge for yourself.

In this edited version, she offends no group, party or religious belief. Nothing here appears to be taken out of context.

Give a listen

Die, Rudolph! Die!

Truthfully, Walt found this, but I’m posting it, because, well it amuses me…
