Bad Advice Quote Of The Day: Sarah Palin Edition

Sarah Palin has some advice for the Romney/Ryan ticket:

In a statement to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offers some advice for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, this year’s Republican ticket for president and vice president, respectively.

“With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should ‘go rogue’ and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security,” says Palin. “They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform.”

Yea, because going rogue worked out so well in 2008.

    Maybe it’s the Alzheimer’s kicking in, but I honestly don’t remember what Palin did in ’08 that qualified her ‘going rogue’. Did she call McCain a lobbyist slut? Did she call the GOP a bunch of hysterical yahoos? Those cleanly would qualify.

    My memory is that she only said something unfiltered and off the cuff. Well sorry gal, but Mitt’s already gone there.

    Well, yeah. I mean she went from governor no one had ever heard of to millionaire TV personality. That’s a pretty good strategy.

    Har, Har, har – You are so funny. The fact is you are not exactly unbiased regarding your negative perception of Rep women. Ever since I can remember, you seem to have it in for strong Rep Women like Gov Palin, while far left whack jobs like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, etc get a pass on your forum. Any comment you make regarding Gov Palin should be kept in perspective given your animus toward strong Rep women.

    Here is a fact: Sen McCain decided NOT to go rogue and play nice in 2008, and what did that get him: A community organizer gets elected who is clearly in over his head and needs a pliant Wash DC/NY media echo chamber to keep him hoisted. This President has, arguably, been one of the worst Presidents in history insofar as deficits, debt, lack of growth,etc. And I don’t need a rigged NY Times or PPP/DailyKOS or any other poll pushed by far left zealot Nate Silver that polls 10 – 20% more Dems than Reps to tell me otherwise.

    How is that Hopey & Changey Stuff working out for you??

    See: 538.com. See: RCP. See: InTrade. See: TPM. See: the six year video record, yet unblemished, of Romney taking every known policy position. See: Mitt Romney Does Dinner Theater.

    Neither hope nor change is required. Some addition, maybe some subtraction, though I realize this is that new-fangled math everyone’s excited about. So…

    I think you should check your link again: What I see are the 2 huge polls (thousands of respondents) showing a tie – 47/47 & 46/46, respectively. While a bunch a rigged polls showing Dem outvoting Reps by margins of 10% +/- showing community organizer in the lead. Do you have any credible evidence that Gallup is wrong and the media, Dem juiced polls are right, except babble & propaganda from a partisan such as Nate Silver?? If so, please provide evidence that Gallup & Rasmussen are wrong and the others are right. I’m all ears. Meanwhile, in the real world, as I was saying: How is that Hopey & Changey stuff working out.

    Please spareme with this 538 & TPM crap. Partisan hacks don’t count. As I just noted to the last far left crank: Can you offer any evidence that Gallup & Rasmussen, which show the race a tie, is less credible that all the rigged polls out there that over sample Liberals by margins or upwards of 10% or more?? If you do, I’m all ears. “Analysis” by advocates who work for left wing entities or blogs do not count. Thanks.

    @Smooth Jazz: Worse, most polling firms admit to struggling with cell phones and so invariably reach the Geritol Set. This is going to mitigate your unsupported “dem skewing polls” theory.

    But for worse is the conservative love of supply and demand, in t his case, as it related to the printing of actual ballots.

    In Iowa, requests for democratic ballots outnumber republican ballots by a factor of SIX to ONE.

    “that in Iowa, “Democrats have requested roughly 100,000 ballots, compared with 16,073 ballots requested by Republicans,” the signs don’t look good.”

    It’s from the WSJ. Too librul for you? You better pray this is confined to Iowa, because if t’s happening elsewhere — even at 2:1 — Romney has no prayer, and places like AZ, MO, and IN are in play again.

    @Smooth Jazz:

    If your’re so sure the polls are rigged, why don’t you head over to Intrade.com. You could make alot of money betting on Romney to win. Right now he’s at 29% while Obama is at 71%. This isn’t a poll mind you, but it’s people putting their real dollars on who they think will win.

    You could score big time putting some cash down on Romney. Or are you waiting until it’s 80/20 to get yourself even better odds?

    I’m guessing… NO.

    Accept the MSM rigged polls that oversample Libbies by 10% and ignore the daily trackers that poll thousands and thousands of people, and which assume a more credible turnout model such as Dems +2% over Repubs. Ayuhhhh!!!

    Of course Rasmussen is a liberal oversampler… right?

    oh… wait…
    @Smooth Jazz:

    Yeah that explains why Rasmussen was the most accurate oster in 2008, while all those pollsters with a clear left wing bias (CBS, NYTimes, Pew, CNN, PPP, Quinnipiac, Marist, REuters, ABC, Wash Post etc etc etc) were way down the list in accuracy in 2008.

    [...]

    Check out the accuracy for the 2004 & 2008 President elctions: Rasmussen was the most accurate pollster.

    All she does is whine. Why doesn’t she show some initiative?

    She could really go rogue by raising a capital and running LBOs on the Washington Post, the New York Times, and maybe Al Jazeera – that would really break through the “filter of the liberal media…”

    It really was unfair that such a strong woman was ambushed by Katie Couric – isn’t that what’s bothering you? I mean, how dare a “journalist” like Katie Couric ask Governor Palin what she reads? A non-biased “journalist” would have known that Governor Palin is too strong and too busy to read.

    For Palin, it’s always about her, and that’s why she’s referring to “going rogue”.

    She’s also delusional in thinking that Romney and Ryan’s problem is that the mainstream media is somehow blocking their message. Of course, that’s utter nonsense. Their problem is that the media actually reports what they say, what they do, and what their records are, thus exposing the flip-flops, inconsistencies, hypocrisies, misleading statements, distortions, and lack of specifics. This is what the press is supposed to do.

    Palin always somehow brings it back to the media, which she still blames for her own failings in 2008.
