In an effort to show that conservatives are too nutty to parody, I give you RedState's Dan McLaughlin's post: Memo to McCain Camp: Washington Has Failed. Send in Gov. Palin.
Seriously, it's like these people are little kids who still imagine that their daddy has super powers. In RedState's defense, two of the three commenters on that board realize what an embarrassment Palin has been; with one of those admitting that McLaughlin's plan is a stunt that would likely backfire. But of course, the third commenter suggests that it's only "gotcha interviews" that make her look bad, and that this is why McCain's campaign needs to "let her be herself." Apparently, every interview is a "gotcha" interview if you suck hard enough.
And this is just sad. The selection of Palin was a huge blunder and these people are very desperate to prove otherwise. After all, she was selected primarily because dopes like McLaughlin wanted her, and now it's looking like that pick was a dud. And even the enthusiasm that Palin brought them had nothing to do with who she was or what they thought she'd do. They were bummed that they didn't get the presidential nominee they wanted, and were just excited because they got something they wanted for Christmas. They weren't really looking for a governor from Alaska, they just wanted a sign that showed McCain cared. They really should have just asked for a pony.
And now they're desperate to find some use for Palin. Sure, she can recite other people's speeches from teleprompters, but she sucks during interviews and only undermined McCain's attacks on Obama. So the best they've got is to have her use her celebrity in order to convince Republican congressmen to vote for a bill they all decided to use as a political hand-grenade.
I think my favorite part is where McLaughlin suggests that Palin hold a press conference (snicker snicker) where she refers to these jerks as "heroes" for jumping on the hand-grenade that already blew up in their faces once, and also "explain to the media that she has learned as a Governor that being a doer matters more than being a talker." But as we've seen already, Palin ain't much of a talker, either.
I suspect that a post-Christmas depression is slowly setting in over RedState and that the kids are already wishing they had gotten a boring toy like Romney instead. Fantasy is always better than reality and attacking Obama was much more fun than spinning for Palin.
