    Gosh, she’s not very bright, is she?

    1. Remember, this is the woman who said she could see Russia from her back yard, and the woman who said that the US should always support their North Korean allies! lol

      Can you imagine what the world would be like if she had ever become President? We would be living through a Nuclear winter right now, America would be under Martial Law, the NSA and CIA would be running the US (if they don’t already), and much of the US would be homeless while the corporations and bankers rob people in the streets.

      It doesn’t bear thinking about, but lets at least be thankful that her fellow right-wing nut jobs are never likely to gain power in the US ever again.

      1. To be fair, she was only up for the position of Vice President. And no Vice President has become President since Gerald Ford on the occasion of Nixon’s impeachment resignation. Before that, Lyndon Johnson on the occasion of Kennedy’s death, and before that, McKinley’s VP (who remembers his name now?) on the occasion of that assassination, and before that, Andrew Johnson on Lincoln’s assassination.

        None of the VP’s, bar Lyndon Johnson ever became Pres in their own right, and only a catastrophic assassination made it possible for LBJ to become President in his own right.

        If McCain had died in office, someone would have bumped her off very quickly! lol

          McKinley’s VP was Theodore Roosevelt, since he’s one of the faces on Mount Rushmore I think it’s a safe bet that a fair few people remember him. He also won the 1904 election in his own right. You also missed out James Garfield’s assassination in 1881, after Lincoln’s, when he was succeeded by his VP Chester A Arthur. Also Harry S Truman succeeded Franklin Roosevelt when FDR died in 1945 and went on to win an election in his own right in 1948. The last VP to succeed to the presidency, albeit after the previous incumbent had served out two full terms, was George HW Bush in 1988.

          Given that McCain is still going it is unlikely that Palin would have succeeded to the presidency in the event of his death but the very possibility was scary enough.

    He blows his bird call and bird brain shows up. Perfect!

  3. Why is this Retarded Alaskan Bitch still grabbing headlines – jumping on the redneck bigot band wagon – free speech my big fat arse! This is hatred pure and simple

    1. you people are so stupid its funny

  4. What else do we expect from a Republican with barely enough intelligence to tie her own laces?

    They ALWAYS resort to this argument, as though it’s their “right” to discriminate against other people and preach hatred and intolerance. Somehow they twist it around in their own minds to make it “intolerant” to be intolerant of intolerance!

    So how about we make it intolerant to be intolerant about being intolerant about intolerance?

    You couldn’t make this up, but unfortunately the right-wing masses in the USA are far too idiotic to understand their own stupidity here.

    These people are lunatics, seriously. They’re so ignorant and nonsensical it’s a wonder they can feed themselves without a nurse assisting them.

    This is also why so many of them are so religious. They need to be so mentally inept to ignore the natural world and instead believe in a fairy story.

  5. Roberson’s comments were not only homophobic, but racist as well. He’s typical of the white trash that inhabit the bayous and backwoods of Louisiana.

    1. and your comment isnt? thats why you people or what ever you are make alot of us normal people sick

  6. That There Other David 19 Dec 2013, 5:19pm

    This woman’s supporters tried to get David Letterman fired for making jokes about her daughter. As usual with the American Right free speech is only a good thing when it’s someone who agrees with them doing it…..

  7. The Supreme Being 19 Dec 2013, 5:34pm

    As an American, I can say Sarah Palin isn’t even interesting enough to make me sick. The only things she’ll be remembered for is losing the Vice Presidential election, her idiot tramp daughter and being dumber than a box of hair. Way to go with your epic legacy.

  8. Robert Rowley 19 Dec 2013, 6:07pm

    A mentally retarded failure says what?

  9. Helge Vladimir Tiller 19 Dec 2013, 6:19pm

    I realize that others have written what I ment to say–so thumbs up for everybody !

    1. Helge Vladimir Tiller 19 Dec 2013, 7:50pm

      —apart from one person further down here. Yes, you got it right.

  10. Always gratifying to see a “vagina” speaking up and defending a sexist homophobe.

    1. Darren Yehuda 19 Dec 2013, 6:43pm

      That was a vagina? I just thought she was growing a beard like her buddies LOL

  11. floridahank 19 Dec 2013, 6:32pm

    Outside of being a very attractive woman she is one of the few with guts enough to attack the biased media for trying to shut down the American freedom of expression — no tolerance by the leftist jerks who will only allow those opinions and comments that go along with their narrow minded views. Heterosexuality has as many rights as homosexuality and we have the right to express it openly even while the opposition doesn’t like it. Phil Robertson is a tough American who is earning his living and can make his comments known anytime — freedom is still part of our basic foundation.

    1. bobbleobble 19 Dec 2013, 7:06pm

      He has not had his right to freedom of expression curtailed but idiots like this guy and Palin don’t get that fact that free speech does not mean speech without consequences. If you say something that people don’t like then they have a right of reply.

      The first amendment only prevents the government from interfering in free speech, it does not apply to private individuals or private enterprises like TV stations and the media. Still you can’t expect a goon like Palin (or apparently your good self Hank) to actually understand the situation and speak from an informed position. She seems to think that being unengaged and ignorant is some kind of virtue. Thank goodness she never got anywhere near the White House.

    2. Tim Hanafin 19 Dec 2013, 7:07pm

      You talk utter b@llocks m8. Get used to the new reality. Your freedom of speech is not a right to disrespect groups of law abiding, tax paying, voting people. Sarah Palin is a figure of ridicule all over the Western world. She has the intelligence of a flea and is about as attractive as Margaret Thatcher.

    3. That There Other David 19 Dec 2013, 7:44pm

      “Heterosexuality has as many rights as homosexuality and we have the right to express it openly even while the opposition doesn’t like it.”

      What planet are you living on where people are trying to stop heterosexuals expressing their orientation? Or where gay people are actively talking down straight people who do so?

      There’s absolutely no connection between your words and reality. Have you been living in some kind of right-wing echo chamber where nobody outside your particular worldview is permitted to speak?

    4. Violets 49 19 Dec 2013, 8:18pm

      AYE! RIGHT! If Robertson makes his comments known in the UK, he’ll get a criminal record. If your ‘free speech’ means the ‘right’ to harass, bully or badmouth anybody you don’t like then you can keep it. As for Palin, only in America could someone of the level of Sara Palin hope to get anywhere near political office.

    5. Bristol Palin thick as pigs sh1t, knocked up by another thick as pigs sh1t phoney Christian bible thumper. Mom is a phoney opportunist Christian bible thumping thick as pigs sh1t mouthpiece for the right-wing ‘tea-party’ lunatic fringe of the Republican Party. Froth away Mr Hanky the Courts are kicking your irrational religious delusions from under your feet. You must feel like crying eh? The majority are finally recognising your lot for the tiny minded, delusional, hateful scum that you are underneath the pretend Christian values none of you actually practise, so now you can’t get away with the bullying or the hate. Utah! Utah! Utah!

    6. I stopped reading at “leftist jerks”.

      Do you guys get email notifications when someone criticizes your religious beliefs or precious Republican party on a website somewhere?

      Let me be the gleeful one to tell you that LGBT equality is passing all over America, the Republican party is weaker than it’s ever been, and if the Repiblicans ever gain power in the US again it will certainly not be while they hold to their moralistic and religious crusading.

      America is evolving, the right wing are not. Sadly, for you, the right wing in the US is dead in the water unless it becomes solely about fiscal conservatism and stops trying to dictate morality and religion.

  12. Shouldn’t he have said either,
    ““It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s penis. I mean, come on dudes!”
    or,
    ““It seems like, to me, a woman’s anus – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. I mean, come on dudes!

    I think Phil Robertson is more than a bit confused.

  13. Phil Robertson is comparing apples with pears though.
