Conservatives have yet again shown themselves to be the very same sheep that liberals are.
Sarah Palin, a has-been who has become a professional milker of fame, has jumped into the spotlight again by stating she believes President Obama should be impeached.
Of course every conservative believes Obama should be impeached. Even I believe he deserves far worse than that—prison, for example—but I also know the ramifications of that and realize it’s a bad idea (more on that further below). But when a conservative darling, like Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz or Ben Carson, says it, conservative voters act as if it’s a brand-new, original thought of that person.
"Sarah Palin says Obama should be impeached! This reminds me why I love her so much!"
And Palin is not a stupid woman; however, she does know how stupid conservatives can be.
Conservatives, ask yourself this: Why would Palin come out to publicly say Obama should be impeached? What purpose is served? Did she think she was being the first one to declare it? Has she not heard many other big names in conservatism say that very same thing? Has she not seen that they got the media’s attention and conservatives’ praise for saying it?
Why does it need to be said again? It’s been said. Stop saying it.
But saying it was Palin’s way to capitalize on conservatives’ idiocy. She knows conservatives clap like seals whenever a famous person says Obama should be impeached. What she was hoping for is to insert herself into the spotlight again (professional milker, as I said) by saying what every other conservative says. She saw how conservatives hoisted Ben Carson on their shoulders the moment they realized, “Wait a minute, that’s a black man saying something against Obama!” She wanted to be looked at again as a possible contender for the presidency. She wanted to be praised as being daring and ballsy and unconventional and outspoken. But she’s just mimicking everybody else.
Why is it an entire week of news when she says something that every other conservative, including big-name ones, has said before? I don’t know, but Palin knew it would be and she wanted that praise and attention from conservative voters.
Saying that Obama should be impeached also does nothing to advance the goal of his removal from office (what conservatives really mean when they talk about impeachment). The Republican House can impeach Obama if they want to, but that does nothing to remove Obama from office. The House does the impeaching, which is essentially the process of telling the Senate, “We think this guy should be removed from office,” but it’s the Senate that decides if a president is actually removed from office. But you may recall that it’s the Democrats who control the Senate, which further points to Palin just wanting attention from her emotional fan base.
(Side point: Even if Republicans do gain control of the Senate after the 2014 elections, do they really want to forever taint their own party as the party that impeached (“lynched,” it will be written) the First Black President OMG?)
You have to wonder if Palin is actually a Democrat who is part of a conspiracy to make conservative voters, the ones who praise her every unoriginal thought, look like idiots.
