Experts agree that Sarah Palin was probably drunk when she wrote this Facebook post

Most high-profile political figures have a team of administrators who update their social media posts – usually after they’ve been screened for any potential gaffes or PR disasters. Sarah Palin undoubtedly has a team like this too, but what makes Palin unique is that you can always tell when she breaks protocol and starts personally posting her random thoughts.

Most high-profile political figures have a team of administrators who update their social media posts – usually after they’ve been screened for any potential gaffes or PR disasters. Sarah Palin undoubtedly has a team like this too, but what makes Palin unique is that you can always tell when she breaks protocol and starts personally posting her random thoughts.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that Sarah Palin’s self-authored posts are identifiable by their incoherent streams of consciousness sometimes echoing the spontaneous ramblings of a drunk teenager, and her latest Facebook post is a perfect example of that.

Palin was responding to the news that former Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley will be challenging Hillary Clinton for the 2016 nomination. According to the half-term former governor of Alaska, O’Malley is just another “typical liberal” with a “rock ‘n roll persona” and an “erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights” which “merely continues the strange and disastrous agenda of Barack Obama.”

And with that lovely intro, she was off to the races:

With today’s more-of-the-same distract-sphere – with the politician sounding exactly like all the others – don’t you wonder if there are ANY good old fashioned Blue Dog democrats who can represent the left’s party in the 2016 race? I feel kind of bad for democrats who are as embarrassed about their party leaving them as some of us Republicans are about our own party when we hear the GOP talk a good game but dishonorably capitulate when given the majority power to stop Obama’s nonsense.

A few strategically-placed commas in that last run-on sentence probably wouldn’t have done any good.

And just in case anyone has forgotten, it’s Republicans who’ve been the champions of civil rights and equal rights for women:

By now, most of those ol’ Reagan democrats have come to realize that it was the party of Lincoln and Reagan all these years fighting for and winning the abolishment of slavery, civil rights for all Americans, equal rights for women, free markets, individual liberty, constitutional protections, private sector job growth, and a sensible foreign policy rooted in peace through strength. For those who still identify as democrats, it’s quite easy to bid a deceptive party an overdue farewell. Just tell me what state you’re a resident of, and I’ll post links to your voter registration office. Click on it. There you can finally bust free of a party that’s long since abandoned you. I recommend then registering “independent,” or the equivalent of, in your state. Your newfound sweet freedom will empower you!

Phew! That was a lot to take in.

Here’s one more notable excerpt that you may need to read a few times to comprehend, improper apostrophe use and all:

Here’s just one reason to do it: abolishing your name from the liberal’s roll chips away at the democrat party’s foundation that actually supports un-American acts like this:

Palin then posts a link to an article from 2013 by the Examiner (which is a multi-user blogging site, not a legitimate news site) with the headline, “DOJ internal memo confirms Obama plan for gun confiscation“.

Really? Still with the tyrannical gun grab stuff? Considering that Obama has about a year left in office, he’d better get moving on making this right wing conspiracy theory a reality. Either way, Sarah Palin should leave the facebooking to her staff and accept the fact that it’s not 2008 anymore.

Note to Palin’s social media team: You should probably make use of this great Facebook feature:

    OMFG. I can’t believe there are still dumbasses out there actually urging this numbskull to run in 2016. I despise John McCain for many things, but I despise him the most for foisting this nitwit onto the American people and putting her way too close to the Oval Office. “Country First” my ass. More like McCain First–just like it’s always been for his whole entire life.

    Well the last several pictures of Sarah the Grifter, does look like she is juiced to the gills. And that speech she tried to go off on Elizabeth Warren, which would never load so one could watch it, but the commercials with it were just fine, a few weeks back did hint she was perhaps DRUNK. Things are never solved in the bottom of a bottle Sarah, if that is where you are looking for answers, time to fade away forever. Now go home, sober up and take care of all of your children, properly and sober.

    As much as I abhor the politics of Sarah Palin, this writer needs to take a grammar class. I am the consummate grammar cop, and I saw no evidence of a run-on sentence, and there was no need for additional use of commas. Further, I disagree that Palin necessarily misused apostrophes in the statement that followed. If she intended to refer to the roll of the liberal as a singular entity, she punctuated correctly. She also referred to the foundation of the democrat party, singular, so no misuse their either. Admittedly, Palin does not construct clear and concise statements, but if one is going to call out grammar mistakes, better be spot on.

    Yes I realize I misused the synonym “their” for “there.” My family is driving me nuts, making me watch stuff on “America’s Got Talent!” Even grammar cops err. Mea culpa!

    Man…I teach high school. In Canada. Which means none of my students, and few of my band parents, will ever stumble across my rantings. But, still, I edit and vet every comment. Because there’s a .0009% chance that someone I know will read wht I write.

    How is it that Palin so blatantly spews her stupidity to millions? And how unbelievably stupid, ridiculous, pathetic are those that read this undecipherable shit think she’s worth the effort to de-code?

    Lord….does ‘Merica have a chance???

    You’re in a little more trouble than that. Palin said, “liberal’s roll,” with an apostrophe error. I believe she meant “liberals’ roll,” as in the roll call or list of liberals.

    Whereas, when you refer to “the roll of the liberal,” interpreting the Palin’s phrase differently than what I think she meant, you need to spell it “role of the liberal.”

    roll vs. role — homophones, but two different words.

    Posted, of course, with my own error–though not grammatical: delete “the” before “Palin’s” in second paragraph.

    I’m used to having a proofreader follow me.

    First, I am no Palin fan so that is not a bias in what I’m about to say. However, I am a fan of good journalism. I agree with the issue you take regarding just what “experts” agree that Palin seems “drunk” in these writings.

    With some expertise of my own in Linguistics (multiple degrees, Univ of CA), I might suggest Palin here sounds hypomanic (which she often does), rather than drunk. Of course, there is not nearly enough evidence in these few postings to support a definitive assessment either way.

    p.s. “Their” and “they’re” are NOT synonyms. They are homophones.

    Not to pick on you, but I could say more about your post. You drew my scrutiny when you called yourself a Grammar Cop. A better moniker might be Grammar Rookie.

    “civil rights for all Americans, equal rights for women, free markets, individual liberty, constitutional protections, private sector job growth, ”
    She obviously hasn’t been in Kansas lately. Lot’s of trickle down of taxes, so the Kochs don’t have to pay theirs, and no private sector jobs. They are getting rid of a bunch of public sector jobs too. Ahhh, capitalist paradise. Workers desperate for anything, even a meal.

    I’m not sure what you’re asking. I said I was’t a Palin fan but that I disputed those calling her drunk. I guess you’ll have to take my word for it that I’m not that word you made up. (Don’t get me wrong–it’s clever and since I’m a liberal Democrat, I’ll probably start using it. But I’m not sure what more you expect from me.

    Kirsten, I absolutely agree.
    The title of this article and the “critical” response to her manic musings is sloppy and misleading.
    I abhor Palin as much as the rest of us, but I do so thoughtfully and rationally.
    While eccentric, Palin’s grammar was absolutely acceptable.

    Sky Palma, perhaps you were the one that had a couple too many glasses of wine when you wrote this??

    Cheers!

    I hope she does run so we can have a full clown car circus this year for the Republican primaries:). The debates will be more fun than SNL:).
