Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska and former GOP vice presidential wannabe … for her continuing inability to distinguish late night comedy from mainstream news. Remember back in February when she included Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report in her list of news media that sought to destroy her during her campaign? Is she too unsophisticated to understand the difference … or just too dumb?
And while it may be wishful thinking on my part, it seems to me the GOP has been giving Palin the cold shoulder since the election — disinviting, uninviting, ignoring, choosing other speakers. It may be just another symptom of the party’s current state of disarray, but the mantle of party leadership that Palin thought she’d been given seems to have evaporated along with that wardrobe she had to return to the RNC.
Carrie Prejean, now the former Miss California USA, is also testing my patience. Donald Trump gave her a second chance and she blew it royally. Sounds like she has no one to blame but herself. Even ditch diggers honor contract obligations.
Both these women have been given far more publicity than they deserve, and neither has had sense enough to shut up and make the most of their position. They have continued to talk too much and do to little.
Ladies, haven’t you ever heard that actions speak louder than words? Stop talking about how wounded you are. Stop making women everywhere look like airheads who talk too much and don’t make much sense when they do. Stop the embarrassing “poor me” routine. You sought this publicity. You craved it. You didn’t hesitate to exploit your feminine good looks to get it.
Now stop complaining and do something worthwhile with the high visibility you’ve got. The clock is ticking and your 15 minutes will be over very soon.
