America's former vice-president has almost become synonymous with awards like these thanks to her inane statements, ridiculous political behaviour and often hypocritical stances. Heck, her constant foot-in-mouth syndrome has even earned her statements the repute of being referred to as ‘Palinisms!’ And while she did drop a little lower on the international radar since the last presidential elections she’s back, with yet another exhibition of her idiocy.
It seems we are now entirely free to add ‘tease’ to her long-running list of flaws given her recent dilly-dallying around her upcoming run for presidency in 2012. However, she finally made her announcement withdrawing these plans to run however after ‘much prayer and consideration’ on Wednesday, October 4th but vowed to continue in her efforts to oust Obama from the position, of course.
We can hear your collective sigh of relief at her decision and while we agree whole-heartedly we still have a bone to pick with her. The announcement came after over a year of toying with public interest in her possible campaign even conducting a ‘One Nation’ bus tour all across the East Coast. However, most people believe it was this toying with future voters’ interests that would have made her miss her opportunity anyway.
But the truth remains that she continued to raise funds, even as recently as two weeks ago, all while hinting at a possible run at the White House. We imagine those donors feel rather cheated indeed!
She explained her final decision by saying that being a candidate was ‘far too shackle-y’ for someone like her who ‘tells it like it is.’ So even while we’re oh-so-grateful that she eliminated the possibility of her actually leading the USA her terribly-strategized planning and disregard for the public negates any good that came out of it. For all this and more, Palin earns ‘great’ recognition as ‘Our Idiot of the Week’ the second time around now! Congratulations Sarah!
