“As for this rule change that some people are calling the nookylar option-- ah, yeh-- under Senate rules, you know, I guarantee, this week, uh, Thanksgiving Dinner, people sitting around their tables, we're not going to be talking about the president blessing this thwarting of a balance of power in, in eh-- Congress with new Senate rules called the nookylar option. People are going to be talking about our failed big government policies that will bankrupt this country so this distraction, this new talking point in the media and, uh, with Congress, with Senators and with the president blessing this action, it’s a distraction and it’s a lot of, you know, double standard and, and, um, Democrat hypocrisy because just a few years ago they were so anti, anti nookylar option, they were against any thought of Republicans ever considering changing these rules, and yet now, you know, it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread so, American people, they don’t care about distractions like that, they’re not in that inside baseball Senate rules stuff, they want government to be back on our side, they want it to get out of our lives, and ah, in order to do that we need those who will not fundamentally transform America but will fundamentally restore what’s right about America. We do that by having good judicial nominees and nominees in these regulatory agencies and elsewhere. So this new rule change, it stinks!"
Fox "News" host Chris Wallace emits a laugh before proceeding with the broadcast.
I'm afraid that I shant be pressing the play button. Just reading the transcript hit me with a wave of nausea. What was supposed to be appealing about her again?

From the perspective of the right, I think it's love for Jesus, the "slutty flight attendant" look, and half a term as governor of Alaska.
Sarah Palin admirably demonstrated her lack of qualifications for serious consideration in a previous election cycle. If she lacked the "slutty flight attendant" look there would be little interest in her antics.

Most tellingly: do a Google image search on 'Sarah Palin'. Note the results, which reflect the popularity of the search terms. "Sarah Palin shorts" comes up number one. Under that, images like those below are ranked most prominently.
Gotta keep those Republican trays in the upright position during takeoff.
God, they look like dorks. Shooting plastic ducks in the pool, maybe?
That particular picture is actually a forgery
Damn, it seemed so realistic at a gut level.
On a similar note, I've made fun of Palin for deriding fruit fly research, but have just discovered that the derision originated from McCain.
Amazing. Palin must have flunked HS or undergrad biology. To think I actually 'fly-sat' for HS kids once. I came from a rather backward HS....;p(
When John McCain chose Sarah Emptyhead Palin, he figured he'd found impeachment insurance.
With her next in line for the presidency, who would impeach him?
I thought about McCain, too... how he unwittingly added to today's GOP-chaos by giving her a stage!
A much more sane, reasonable, and cynical evaluation. Such a projection could still work, but as with many simplistic plans, a greater nuttyness could intrude.
