It was clear in November of 2006 that 2008 was the year that the Democrats could nominate an empty suit and beat any Republican. As a matter of fact, that’s exactly what happened.
So what is the zombie meme that our in-the-tank media is trying to foist upon us? What false narrative will we hear again and again as long as Sarah Palin is in politics? This lie:
“It’s all Sarah Palin’s fault that John McCain lost!”
Forget about eight years of GOP mismanagement, crony capitalism and lawbreaking. Forget about the war in Iraq, the economy, and global warming. Forget all about the media’s enthusiastic support for Obama and the huge funding mismatch. This is why John McCain really lost:
Fox News reports that Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent and did not know the member nations of the North American Free Trade Agreement — the United States, Mexico and Canada — when she was picked for vice president.
The New York Times reports that McCain aides were outraged when Palin staffers scheduled her to speak with French President Nicholas Sarkozy, a conversation that turned out to be a radio station prank.
Newsweek reports that Palin spent far more than the previously reported $150,000 on clothes for herself and her family.
Several publications say she irked the McCain campaign by asking to make her own concession speech on election night.
That’s not all. From TGW:
Now we hear that the wanton Sarah Palin shocked and offended the puritanical sensibilities of McCain aides by appearing before them wearing nothing but a towel!:
At the GOP convention in St. Paul, Palin was completely unfazed by the boys’ club fraternity she had just joined. One night, Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter went to her hotel room to brief her. After a minute, Palin sailed into the room wearing nothing but a towel, with another on her wet hair. She told them to chat with her laconic husband, Todd. “I’ll be just a minute,” she said.
OMG! Gasp. Horrors. We guess this means Sarah Palin really is a slut. But we knew that already because the brazen hussy wears red. Conservatives really do need to come out of the freaking 16th century. Or the sexists on the right could get together with the sexists on the left and harass and smear every single woman who dares to compete for a man’s job. Oh, wait.
Some conservatives appear to be very fearful that Sarah Palin will indeed emerge as a presidential candidate in 2012, and so they are doing their best to destroy the woman before they have to compete with the bitch for a man’s job.
Why else would professional political staffers spread these stories? This comment is unintentionally revealing:
There is one comment in particular from a McCain aide that guaranteed to heighten friction between the two camps. The angry aide described the Palin family shopping spree to Newsweek as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast.”
Who else got called hillbillies? Bill and Hillary! Why? Because they weren’t Washington DC insiders so they were treated with contempt by the Village idiots.
Now of course the media tries to be fair and balanced. Buried on page three of the story ABC printed Sarah’s response:
Questions followed Palin home to Alaska. She was asked about some of the accusations from anonymous sources when she landed there late Wednesday.
Asked about the Fox report that she did not know the NAFTA members or that Africa was a continent, Palin said, “If they’re an unnamed source, that says it all. I won’t comment on anyone’s gossip based on anonymous sources. That’s kind of a small of a bitter type of person who anonymously would charge that I didn’t know an answer to a question. So, until I know who’s talking about it, I won’t have a comment on a false allegation.”
Damn I wish Sarah was a liberal! I’d vote for her even though she has boobies and scary lady parts.

Well? Where did you think zombie memes came from?
