Sarah Palin gave a speech today. She talked for about forty minutes. As many people expected, she didn’t announce she was running for the GOP nomination, but she did talk about several things including her ideas to improve the economy and end crony capitalism.

So what is the #1 story at Memeorandum right now?

TRENDING: Comedian tells ‘special needs’ joke at Palin event

In comedy, timing is everything.

And minutes before Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and parent of a child with Down syndrome, made her much-anticipated speech in Iowa, Los Angles-based comedian Eric Golub told a joke that compared liberal political ideology to “special needs children.”

    I knew that tea party “klown” would cause Sarah trouble, he was a Perry plant, true story 😀

  2. Who’s the idiot. Sounds like he could be Andy Sullivan’s boyfriend.

  3. imustprotest says:

    It wasn’t a “Palin event”. It was a Tea Party event and Sarah was asked to be the key note speaker.

    • Very good point. It was a tea party event, they controlled it. They were in charge. Palin probably had some control, and could have insisted someone not be there if they were a known quantity. So no reasonable person would pin this on her. Now if were a real “Palin event” they certainly could. Of course as mentioned above, many similar things have happened with Obama but we heard crickets.

      • Just the same, you’ve got to do better vetting and look for idiots, Perry and/or Romney plants, Obama plants, etc. You can’t get them all, so have a good story when something slips through. Like with Hillary, when you’re already hated by the MSM, you’ve got to do 4 times the work.

    Seems to me the chattering class found litttle to critique. The big story is a bad joke from an unknown comedian. Please …

    • imustprotest says:

      I remember when the late Bernie Mac made a very tasteless joke at an Obama event and nobody cared. I remember when Obama’s team played “I’ve Got 99 Problems but a ______ ain’t One” at an Iowa rally after the caucus. There were crickets from the msm.

      • ralphb says:

        It’s typical and the Reps will try doing to her what the Dems did to Hillary. One thing that I really hate is this whole “she’s such a tease” BS. I never heard anyone say that about any male canddate.

  5. Dario says:

    Sarah Palin has delivered an awesome speech, and what she said is no joke.

  6. Since the speech was partly about crony capitalism, time for a favorite quote:

    “You know what capitalism is? Gettin’ fucked!” — Scarface (1983)

    The polls seem to agree with the model, but Ezra refuses to accept the findings, and pushes his head deeper into his ass

    Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire

    Model Suggests Perry is Strongest GOP Candidate
    A new “bio-index forecasting model” from political scientists Andreas Grafe and Scott Armstrong finds that Rick Perry is the only current Republican presidential candidate who can beat President Obama in the 2012 election.

    The model uses 58 biographical factors — such as age, marital status, height, appearance, having published a book — for predicting presidential elections. The authors claim their model has correctly found the winner of 27 of the past 29 elections.

    Ezra Klein: “If you look at the paper, you’ll see that Mitt Romney is barely ranked as a stronger candidate than Michele Bachmann, and that’s enough for me to pretty much discount this model totally.”

    • DandyTiger says:

      Wow, could Ezra be more out of touch. How on earth could anyone think Romney is a contender. That ranking sounds exactly right to me.

    • ralphb says:

      Basically what they are saying is the person with the best haircut and the whitest teeth always wins. Color me skeptical of this model of a political scientist from Karlruhe and a marketing prof at UPenn.

  8. More movie quotes. This one relates to the Obots that hunt and dig for the littlest things about Palin now (or Hillary before) and ignore the elephant in the room (that is, Barry Reagan);

    “There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening.” — A Clockwork Orange (1971)

  9. Another one, for Obama himself:

    “You’re no messiah. You’re a movie of the week. You’re a fucking t-shirt, at best.” — Se7en (1995)

  10. The comedian answers the critics:

    So let’s make this story less relevant than Politico interviewing the current president.

    Nobody vetted my remarks in advance.
    Governor Palin did not hear the joke.
    The crowd loved the joke.
    Conservative crowds all across the country love the joke.
    Outside of Sarah Palin, nobody else’s opinion on the subject matters to me.

    Sadly, but not surprising given the tasteless joke, he takes a swipe at Hillary in the article, and her age. He’s definitely not ready for prime time.

  11. Mike Bloomberg put it better in one of his homilies: “Make your client think he’s getting laid when in fact he is getting f*cked”
