Palin Would Win If Not For That Damn Media

Todd and Sarah Palin did an interview with Inside Edition (which is the proper place to interview them because she is a faux celebrity, not a political leader) and Todd said that he thinks that his wife would win the presidency in a landslide if not for that damned biased media.

So given that, it’s no surprise that her husband, Todd, said what he did during an episode aired on Inside Edition featuring the couple.

Todd Palin suggested in the interview that if the media were not like WWE referees who try to swing the outcome of matches, Palin would win a presidential election in a landslide.

Todd said that Sarah “would win hands down, in my mind, if the media did their job and presented each candidate on experience and their policy and their ideas.”

When asked if he would potentially support his wife’s candidacy, Todd responded that, “If she wants to [run for president], I will be behind her.”

First of all, she’s not going to run. Campaigning is real work. And being president is far more work. Sarah Palin doesn’t want to work, she wants to be a star. Secondly, the last thing she would ever want is for the media to focus on her experience, policies and ideas. She knows virtually nothing about public policy.

    Sarah Palin doesn’t want to work, she wants to be a star.

    Well, she’s got the hot gas bit right for starters then.

    Sufficient gravity and the ability to fuse it into other elements by stellar nucelosynthesis – now there’s her problem!

    Todd said that Sarah “would win hands down, in my mind, if the media did their job and presented each candidate on experience and their policy and their ideas.”

    If the media did their job, and presented each candidate on experience and their policy and their ideas, then Palin wouldn’t even be elected to a local school board.

    Wait? WWE matches are fixed??!!!!

    Jesus, Todd’s dumb. It takes a certain lack of insight to realize that WWE matches are fixed, and then to blame it on the refs. Because if WWE had host referees, it would be totally real and not a soap-opera in tights.

    if the media were not like WWE referees who try to swing the outcome of matches

    Um, I’m pretty sure those refs don’t “try to swing the outcome.” They are perfectly happy to play the roles they’ve been given in the theater piece, and improvise to support the story when necessary. The fact that Todd thinks the outcome is based on wrestling skill (if it weren’t for those damned referees!!!) says a lot about him, IMO.

    She knows nothing about public policy but – duh – she can see it from her porch!

  • matty1

    Doesn’t fixed imply there could have been an actual contest? This is a bit like complaining Die Hard is fixed for Bruce Willis.

    Todd responded that, “If she wants to [run for president], I will be behind her.”

    Doing what, exactly?

    She knows virtually nothing.

    She knows virtually nothing about public policy.

    Well, sure, but at least try to be realistic. How big do you think her palm is?

    …who try to swing the outcome of matches….

    Actually, I wish the media would try to swing the outcomes of elections…by pointing out when candidates say things that are factually untrue, pointing out when their speeches are nothing but empty rhetoric, and when the candidates actually do say something substantial, or when they do have a history as a legislator or governor, or when their party has been advocating for specific legislation, to run the proposals by the relevant experts to have them comment on the likely impact on real life society and real life people.

    And if one candidate is worse at speaking factually or has worse ideas about governing, well, it isn’t being partisan to point that out.

    “Public Policy Polling, the most accurate pollster of the 2012 election, has done several state polls of a hypothetical Clinton presidential run;…”

    “Even in traditionally Republican states, Clinton has some surprising numbers. In Texas she leads Texas Governor Rick Perry (50% to 42%), New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (45% to 43%), and Marco Rubio (46% to 45%). In Louisiana Clinton ties or beats all Republican contenders. Same story in Kentucky as Rand Paul, the current senator and son of Ron Paul, is beaten badly, 47% to 42%. Even in far off Alaska Clinton is strong, trailing Chris Christie by one point (43% to 42%) and leading Marco Rubio one point (44% to 43%). Alaska’s most infamous politician, Sarah Palin, is crushed in a head to head poll, losing 53% to 37%.”

    No no no… He said she would win in my mind. Of course she would. In his mind. What a wonderfully supportive statement to make about one’s spouse.

  • busterggi

    The Alaskan tag team isn’t completely wrong – look how Palin was cheered for immediately after McCain picked her. If only she had never said anything to the media we wouldn’t have seen what a waste she is.

  • caseloweraz

    Todd said that Sarah “would win hands down, in my mind, if the media did their job and presented each candidate on experience and their policy and their ideas.”

    But he neglected to say what she would win. A wise omission, methinks.

    Let me translate this:

    “If it weren’t for you people in the media, constantly showing what an idiot my wife is, she would win!”

    And she would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!

    Kinda a toss up as to who is more delusional; Sarah or Todd

    Half-Governor Palin will, at best, appear in cities where Tea Party presidential candidates are campaigning. She will be soliciting money for her PAC. If paid enough by a local Tea Party candidate, she will appear with him or her. If paid even more, she will not appear with him or her.

  • David Eriksen

    Every time I see something about Palin, I wonder about the feasibility of a new Constitutional amendment. I know we can’t have religious test for office but what about a competency test? Say, for example, all candidates for federal office have to take the ASVAB. If your GT score isn’t at least 110, you don’t get to run. Basically, if you aren’t smart enough to qualify for SF you don’t get to be in charge of SF (much less the rest of the military).

    I know that people like Sen. Cruz would make it past that requirement but at least we’d never have to hear from Palin or Bachmann ever again.

  • gerryl

    President of what?

  • dingojack

    gerryl – “Todd Palin suggested … Palin would win a presidential election in a landslide. Todd said that Sarah “would win hands down, in my mind … ”

    So she’d be the president of Todd’s mind. The world’s most torpid, smallest and darkest republic..

  • bushrat

    No No No. Oh Todd, the reason Sarah didn’t win was because of all those people not voting for her…and of coarse no actually having ever run for President.
