We generally try to avoid providing attention to the now-irrelevant word-salad-artist Sarah Palin — if you deny her attention she loses power and withers away, much like Pennywise from ”It” — but this is too good to pass up.
The former half-term governor of America’s fourth-lowest populated state and almost-vice president went on Fox News this weekend to promote the candidacy of one of the few people left trying to curry favor from her, Newt Gingrich. In doing so, she gave us this quote for the ages:
“Rage against the machine, vote for Newt.”
As you can see in the clip, Palin further argues (rages?) that Republicans can “annoy liberals” by voting for Newt Gingrich. Exactly. There’s nothing that liberals hate more than Obama winning re-election by McGovern/Mondale/Dukakis blowout proportions. Keep giving ‘em hell, Sarah.
But recent polls show that the Newt moment after his South Carolina victory is already fading away, as Romney is expected to win easily in Florida tomorrow and remains a virtual lock to win the nomination. The days of Palin Mania in 2008 and 2009 are now a thing of the past, as Florida voters seem to be ready to say — paraphrasing the Zack de la Rocha — “Fuck Newt, I won’t do what you tell me!”
