Palin As Chess Master / Palin As Sexy Puppet

The Creepshow which has become Palin Derangement Syndrome is so enthralling to watch.

The Black Bracelet crowd cannot figure out if Palin is Anatoly Karpov or some strange combination of Raymond Shaw and Barbi Benton.

Act I, Palin as Chess Grandmaster (h/t HotAir), via HuffPo blogger Joan Williams:
Palin is a brilliant strategist.... Sarah Palin is playing chess. I don't know what game the Administration is playing, but they just walked right into her carefully laid trap. Palin, the strategist, is amazing to watch. Her brilliance is her ability to tap in to the class conflicts that drive American politics these days. Obama, whom I have supported since Iowa, just doesn't get it.
Act II, Palin as Sexy Puppet, via former HuffPo blogger, now True/Slant blogger (the HuffPo crowd must not have been liberal enough for her), the oft-cited Allison Kilkenny (strike-through in original):
Palin entered the political world as a Serious Contender because the right rich men got erections in her presence deemed it appropriate. There’s nothing democratic about that. The American people never said she was the best woman for the job. Palin simply found the people with the right access (wealthy, white men,) and coasted her way into a position where she was almost one heart attack away from the presidency of the most powerful country on the planet.
Act III is coming to a psychiatrist's couch near you, very soon.

  1. It was the same with George W. Bush. His most vocal detractors couldn't decide if he was an evil genius or Rainman.

    On the one hand, they wanted folks to believe he wasn't competent to tie his shoes without a supervising adult. On the other hand, we were to believe he was not only complicit in 9/11, but somehow managed to control a hurricane and steer it toward black people.

    The target changes, but not the willfully blind, contradictory attacks...

  2. Was Biden the best man/person for the job? I don't think the HuffPo (is the contraction "Ho"?) commenter could bring himself to say no. Anyway, PDS is wonderful to watch, as is Rush Derangement Syndrome. (Really it all boils down to Conservative Derangement Sydrome, only the names change depending on the rabid liberal frothing at the mouth).

  3. "Act I" strikes me as a far more generous assessment of Palin than one usually encounters within the leftie internet commentariat. The more common variant of this meme portrays Palin as a provable dufus, but one whom the corporate mainstream media refuses to expose as such due to their right-wing agenda. Yes, you read all of that right; these people believe the media are in the tank for CONSERVATIVES. This of course explains al the fawning coverage Palin received from the major media during the '08 campaign.

  4. It's hard to be a beautiful, smart, capable pol with executive experience who can see thru the elites' carpola as if it were saran wrap.

  5. Biden was selected by Carolyn Kennedy, Eric Holder and one other, their lack of judgement has been made quite plain in the last year.

  6. That's funny, I thought it was Obama who sent a thrill up men's (or at least Chrissy Matthews's) legs....

  7. Speaking of thrills, I thought you might find this news interesting
