Sarah Palin’s A Big Bully

A “classic school-yard bully” according to this guy from the Pittsbugh Post-Gazette.

Those of us with vivid memories of middle school have seen Gov. Sarah Palin’s type before. She was the girl who was always the first to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and the last to stop instigating fights in the cafeteria.

She was the girl who always had just enough self-awareness to know when the boys were paying more attention to her than to other girls.

That’s actually better than the total lack of self awareness it takes for a grown man to write a sneering column in which he pretends to know what kind of person someone was when she was in school, while calling her a bully.

He knows deep down that she was a big meanie, and doesn’t hesitate to share with us the horrors she likely inflicted on unwitting classmates:

From an early age, she knew the power of a strategically placed hand on the bicep of some jock. Girls like Sarah Palin knew how to secure a place with the “in crowd.” After all, she was the girl with the iridescent smile who provided the laugh track for the meatheads roaming the halls pulling wedgies on those who would never qualify as “their kind of people.”

Oooooh. You know who he means don’t you? Who wouldn’t qualify as her “kind of people”?

Folks who don’t look like the other presidents on the dollar bill?  People who look “different” and have “funny sounding names”?


Like a lot of bullies, Sarah Palin talks tough when she’s surrounded by people of like mind and even less imagination; the more gullible the mob of admirers, the better. That has always been the case with demagogues. Sarah Palin subscribes to the same strain of American anti-intellectualism and fake populism as Huey Long, Spiro Agnew and other media-savvy scoundrels from the last century.

Read: Sarah Palin is stoopid. Obama went to Harvard. Sarah Palin went to some snowbilly college up in Alaska. It’s not bullying to point that out.

Bullying is when you say damaging (but true) things about “the one”.

Let’s play this game with Barack Obama. What kind of guy was he in school?

Could he have been the race obsessed dweeb who lived to be offended?  The kind of guy who would, after dragging a couple of white friends to an all black party in which they appeared to have fun, react like a drama queen at an innocuous remark:

In the car on the way home, one of the friends empathizes with Obama, saying: “You know, man, that really taught me something. I mean, I can see how it must be tough for you and Ray sometimes, at school parties … being the only black guys and all.”

And thus Obama felt the cruel lash of racism! He actually writes that his response to his friend’s perfectly lovely remark was: “A part of me wanted to punch him right there.”

Or almost fall over at the thought that his grandmother was harassed by a black pan handler….not because she was harassed, but because the panhandler was black, and that somehow made his grandmother a “racist”

Only after Obama had offered to drive his grandmother to work himself and it was becoming increasingly clear what a selfish lout the grandfather was, did Grandpa produce his trump card. The reason he wouldn’t get his lazy butt dressed and drive Grandma to work was … she was a racist!

As Obama recounts it, on Grandpa’s third try at an excuse, he told Obama: “You know why she’s so scared this time? I’ll tell you why. Before you came in, she told me the fella was black. That’s the real reason she’s bothered. And I just don’t think that’s right.” So I guess I’ll be heading back to the sack now!

But Obama says, “The words were like a fist in my stomach, and I wobbled to regain my composure.”


I’ll take the (pretend) bully over the very real race obsessed drama queen any day of the week.

Oh, and here’s the big bully in action, yesterday:

Go Sarah!


Hey there Ace of Spades morons. Make yourself at home. Feel free to whack a troll if you spot any.

  1. “She was the girl who was always the first to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and the last to stop instigating fights in the cafeteria.”

    Who the hell was that girl? I don’t think I ever met her.


  2. There is something so deliciously ironic about a campaign by a CHICAGO politician and assorted hangers-on who will stand up in public and with a straight face, complain about the beating that they are receiving from a GIRL, who has the unmitigated temerity to club the candidate with inconvenient facts. I think that is taking the victim card to the extreme, and it makes me wonder how Jugears would react when a world leader says unkind things about him. It only goes to show again how unfit he is to sit in the big chair.

    As for the sissy author of this piece of silliness, all I can say is that it must be pretty sad that he could have left high school behind and never gotten past the fact that a pretty girl didn’t have time for him then, and he still feels threatened by them now. Most people go on to have real lives. Must be a lack of maturity holding him back.


  3. Short version:

    She was the girl that I had a mad crush on and obsessed over, but who never noticed me because I was too much a whiny, pansy, zit-faced, forgettable little nerd for her to waste a minute of her time on me.

    And for that, I will forever hate any woman who reminds me of her.



  4. Hey I KNOW that guy.

    He’s guy who deliberately dropped the soap in the school showers and slyly looked around to see who might be noticing.

    Nah… I don’t think he was observing girls so much.

    When he got pantsed, he just stood there and shrieked.

    Yeah we all know THAT guy.


  5. Wrong Wiserbud.

    Here’s the real shorter version:

    She was the girl that was perfectly nice to me but I couldn’t get up the balls to ask out so I turned her into something awful in my mind so I wouldn’t have to acknowledge what a pussy I was and how much I still wish I had asked her out because she’s hot and isn’t a harping, lefty bitch like the woman who sleeps in the other bedroom and keeps my balls in a jar on her bedside. Yeah, I’m certain Stacy must have been a racist for not responding to my unspoken desire to date her. No other possible explanation.

    Accuracy is important when reading minds Wiserbud.


  6. “Those of us with vivid memories of middle school….”

    Well there’s your problem right there Tony. No grown man should ever have “vivid memories of middle school”. Sounds like you are nursing some pretty big grievances and personal scar.

    Sarah Palin a bully? I dunno-Doesn’t really jive with that “Miss Congeniality” title does it? Could it be you’re projecting just a bit? Maybe some counseling would help?


  7. Meanwhile, in Realityville, the man who knows Sarah Palin better than anyone, says she was painfully shy in school.


  8. Hmmmm.

    This guy needs:

    1. A testicle transplant.

    2. An intervention before he cuts his ear off and mails it to some girl.

    3. Recognition that he’s a flaming gay guy and a new wardrobe.

    I’m betting on #3.

    Who, Immuyak Keelut? Well I didn’t like him either. Quinn the Eskimo, on the other hand…


  11. “iridescent smile”? She has shiny teeth in all the colors of the rainbow? It’s fun when a journalist’s pretentious artistic prose comes crashing down around his ears, jarred by a malapropism. It’s “incandescent”, Tony, like the light bulbs.

  13. I didn’t know they let 13-year-old girls write columns for big city newspapers tyhese days. It’ll be okay, Toni, you’ll get your boobies soon and the mean girls will stop laughing at you.


  14. Anyone who was remotely cool in middle and high school knows all about the rampant imaginations of those who were not.

    My high school graduation night there was a massive party that probably 80% of the class went to. The cops broke it up within an hour and myself and a handful of friends went to another party I knew about where all the bookish dorks and nobodies were. I was an honors student and friendly with a bunch of them though I had little in common with them and thus was not friends with any of them them socially.

    Needless to say, my friends and I stuck out like sore thumbs there. Not long after arriving I was jolted by seeing the mother of the girl having the party screaming at two of my friends for never giving any of these kids a chance and making their high school years miserable. She went on about how these are the smart kids and how the rest of us will learn that we peaked in high school. It was hilarious to watch how scared and uncomfortable my friends were, especially since both were headed to Ivy League schools AND neither one went to our high school, but instead were friends from my summer league baseball team.

    I wasn’t as evil then so I simply interjected that they didn’t go to our school and noted that she had drawn all sorts of conclusions based on the fact that these guys looked and carried themselves like normal kids. But every time I encounter seething hate for Sarah Palin from the left I see some variant of this at play. The scars of a dorky childhood.


  15. My reply to Mr. Norman, for what it was worth.
    The price of tea in China – and what this had to do with it.

    In the midst of America’s biggest financial meltdown since 1929, you waste space in a major metropolitan newspaper of a key state to air an immature, sneering and irrelevant screed about the #4 person in this race. Don’t you think the election deserves a bit more gravitas in the face of the issues we now confront ? As an ex-rust-belter myself, could you possible explain how this post-adolescent hissy-cow helps me to decide who to vote for ? Spiro references will get you nowhere with the undecided voters of the 21st century. The only ones of us who might understand are either hip to your game or already on your side. If your editor chooses to let you intellectually masturbate in plain sight of his editorial page readers, that’s his business. The internet and alternative media in general thank you for your continuing failure to address any substantive issues. Let the print media subsidize your perennially-collegiate fanboy crushes (and anti-crushes, apparently) while the rest of us deal with the real world.
