Forgetting Palin

By Ann Coulter

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Sarah Palin has deeply disappointed her enemies. People who hate her guts feel she's really let them down by resigning.


She's like the ex-girlfriend they're SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about — really, it's O-ver — but they just can't stop talking about her.


Liberal: Ha, ha … Sarah who? She's over, she's toast, a future Trivial Pursuit answer, nothing more.


Normal person: Whatever. How about the North Korean missiles?


Liberal: Can you believe she just resigned the governorship like that? What a quitter!


Normal person: Speaking of quitting, how's work?


Liberal: Did you hear she might get a TV show? There's no way Sarah Palin's getting a TV show! No way! I can't believe stupid Sarah Palin could get her own stupid TV show now. Well, I'm sure not gonna watch it — that's for sure!


Normal person: Have you seen all the Michael Jackson coverage on TV?


Liberal: How does she think she can run for president in 2012 if she can't finish her term as governor of a Podunk state? She's finished.


Normal person: OK, then! You won't have to vote for her.


Liberal: I was never going to vote for her! But now I'm not going to vote for her twice. And I will never watch her TV show. I am so over her.


Reporters had already written their stories on Palin's press conference — "rambling!" "incoherent!" — before she even stepped to the podium.


Whatever you think of Palin, her argument for resigning was the opposite of "rambling" and "incoherent."


Palin's basketball analogy couldn't have been clearer, even to prissy liberal pundits who get uncomfortable when the subject turns to sports: She decided to destroy the other team's game plan, which has been to obsessively focus on her, by resigning.


This is particularly apt here — she's passing the ball to a fantastic right-wing lieutenant governor, who shares her principles but doesn't set off the left's neuroses.


This is better for him, better for the state, better for the conservative program and better for Palin personally, whose family is sick of all the crap. Now she can make a lot of money and promote conservatism on a national stage.


It certainly won't be held against Palin by people who don't already loathe her. (On the other hand, her approval ratings among people who think she's worse than Hitler are down to 48 percent.)


With the left frenetically filing ethics complaint after ethics complaint against Palin, costing her state millions of dollars and her personally half a million dollars, citizens of Alaska must be asking, "Can we please have our state back?"


But to read the news reports — which actually were rambling and incoherent — you would think Palin was speaking in tongues.


The truth is liberals are furious they won't have Sarah Palin to kick around anymore — at least not with Palin's hands tied behind her back by her public office.


Something tells me Keith Olbermann isn't going to be pulling any big numbers this summer attacking Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann. I don't anticipate any sudden outbreaks of "Mitch McConnell Derangement Syndrome."


Soon we'll only hear about Keith when his creepy e-mails using his mother's death to hit on chicks start making the rounds again. (Tip to Keith: When a girl refuses to give you her phone number, her assistant's phone number or her personal e-mail address, and only gives you her assistant's e-mail address, you're not halfway in the sack.)


Bonus: If Olbermann gets canceled as a result of Palin's resignation, that will put her in a really good position for 2012.


But instead of being honest and saying, "Oh well, it was a good ride while it lasted," liberal chatterers indignantly demand: "Is this not the greatest betrayal a public servant ever committed against the people?"


On one hand, liberals are enraged at the heinousness of Mark Sanford — whom they didn't vote for — for not resigning and, on the other, they're enraged at Palin — whom they also didn't vote for — for resigning.


The peculiarly venomous hatred of Palin is driven by women of the left and their whipped consorts. All that needs to happen is for a feminist to overhear two Nation readers saying, "I hate to admit it, but Palin is kind of hot" and …


WHAT??????????? YOU CALL THAT HOT? I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW WE'VE GOT A MEGA-SUPER HOTTIE IN DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ. AND NEED I REMIND YOU AGAIN OF THE RAW SEX APPEAL OF RACHEL MADDOW?


Democrats are a party of women, and nothing drives them off their gourds like a beautiful Christian conservative. (How much money has that other beautiful born-again, Carrie Prejean, been forced to spend on lawyers to respond to liberal hysteria?)


So the motives are clear, but the money is not. Who is paying the rent for the losers filing all these frivolous complaints against Palin?


At least when Richard Mellon Scaife was funding investigations of Bill Clinton, we knew who Scaife was, he was an American citizen, and his money was accessible to U.S. tax authorities and not stashed in offshore accounts like a certain Hungarian Nazi-collaborator I can name.


How about some modern-day Scaife investigate the investigators?

"Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America"  

In her most controversial and fiercely argued book yet, Ann Coulter calls out liberals for always playing the victim when in fact, as she sees it, they are the victimizers. In GUILTY, Coulter explodes this myth to reveal that when it comes to bullying, no one outdoes the Left. GUILTY is a mordantly witty and shockingly specific catalog of offenses which Coulter presents from A to Z. And as with each of her past books, all of which were NYT bestsellers, Coulter is fearless in her penchant for saying what needs saying about politics and culture today.
