Rush: Sarah Palin Could Beat Obama and Scares Democrat Party the Most. Rager to Slimebaugh: Don't Piss on My Back & Tell Me It's Rick Perry...
With Sarah Palin sending signals that she may run for president after all, Rush Slimebaugh appeared to jump all over her bandwagon late this week. Slimebaugh said that Palin would have a very legitimate chance of defeating Obama in 2012 and, further, is the candidate that the democrat party fears the most!
I call bunk, not that I think Slimebaugh really believes any of those words, anyway. More on that in a minute...
The Odds of Palin Beating Obama Are About as High as Discovering Oil Beneath a Mississippi Shithouse
There's something black down there, alright, but it ain't Black Gold or Texas Tea -- and neither is Palin.
I believe that if there is one republican who definitively cannot beat Obama, it's Palin. There are simply too many people out there having a pronounced and established negative view of her -- I among them.
That's too many people (predominantly Independents) who would not even consider voting for her, while they would seriously consider (or at least in some part consider) voting for most of the other republican candidates.
I feel like Mickey Goldmill in Rocky III over here: You can't win, Rock (errr, Hottie).
The Real Reason the Leftists Obsess Over Palin: Pure, Unadulterated Hatred
And I don't put much stock, either, in Slimebaugh's pronouncement that the democrat party fears Palin. I've said this before: I accuse (and justifiably so) the leftist 20 percenters of many things, but being stupid is not typically among them.
The reason they've obsessed over Palin like no other republican that I can recall in my lifetime is that they just can't help themselves: Leftist 20 percenters absolutely hate any conservative or republican who is not a white male, and they made Palin their poster child in this regard. People who are not white males are not supposed to be conservative or republican, after all! (Sorry for the double negative).
Put another way: A female, black or Hispanic having the gall to be anything other than a nice little democrat party liberal is loathed by the leftists more than anything -- and they will always go after such a person with everything they have.
Giving Palin the full loony leftist treatment has had little to do with Palin's presidential chances, but everything to do with her sex and her politics.
And the democrat party accuses the republicans this week of being the anti-women party! The hilarity! But I digress.
Slimebaugh Cannot Believe the Words That Come Out of His Own Mouth
So Slimebaugh's statements now having been debunked, why did he make them? Slimebaugh's not stupid, after all. I actually give him credit for being pretty damn bright, even if there are few people as swift as the Rager. (Joke!)
Keep in mind also, this is a guy who for weeks last year said that deranged right-winger (and literal "Witchy Woman") Christine O'Donnell actually had a legitimate chance to win the Delaware Senate seat when she had no chance and everyone knew it.
It's similar here. Slimebaugh's agendas control his words and lead him often to say things that I don't think even he believes.
He'll First Play Up Palin 'Cause He Sure as Hell Ain't Gonna Run Down a Staunch Conservative
So what are Slimebaugh's agendas? I believe there are least two at play here: (1) Slimebaugh's desire to run everyone out of the republican party (at least in terms of the powerbrokers) who's not a dyed in the wool social and economic conservative; and (2) what I believe is his high desire for Texas governor Rick Perry (pictured above w/ the six-shooter) to toss his hat into the republican presidential field.
The first agenda leads him to naturally support candidates like Palin and O'Donnell even when they have no chance to win because Slimebaugh would rather have a conservative run and lose than a perceived "moderate" run who might win or lose.
After all, non-establishment conservatives and tea party types like Slimebaugh genuinely disdain so-called "RINOS" (alleged moderate "Republicans In Name Only") almost to the same degree that the leftist 20 percenters hate non-white male conservatives and republicans. (Must be such a joy to be a member of either of these two parties!)
He'll Also Play Up Palin to Scare Rick Perry (or Others) Into Running
The second agenda is admittedly a theory of mine, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that my political theories are typically either dead-on right or at the very least turn out to have significant elements of truth. (Hey, somebody's gotta pat me on the back!)
I believe Slimebaugh thinks that playing up a crazy, damaged goods person like Palin as a serious candidate will lead a perceived republican heavy-hitter like Rick Perry (or maybe Chris Christie) to run -- the thought being, someone's gotta get in there and make sure she doesn't get the GOP nomination since she'd have no chance of winning.
Slimebaugh would love Perry to get involved. Perry is what I often call a true deranged right-winger tea party type (thus passing Slimebaugh's litmus test) and, truth be told, would be a very serious challenger to Obama. If you told me that Perry is a guy that would scare the hell out of the democrat party, then I'd agree with you.
So when Slimebaugh makes these kinds of crazy statements about Palin's chances and how people are "afraid" of her, take it all with a grain of salt. Just as when the leftist 20 percenters say things and make pronouncements, it's no different with the right-wingers: Always an agenda at play. Either that, or (if he actually believes his statements) maybe Slimebaugh really is just that stupid (doubt it).
