It was bound to happen. It happened to Beyonce with Destiny's Child. It happened with Diana Ross with the Supremes, and it happened with Patti Labelle, and her former group, Labelle. At some point the star of the group realizes that it's their show, and as a result, they decide to break off and go solo.
Well, we can add Sarah Palin to that list. Girlfriend has realized that it was her, and not Mr. Morton, who has been the star of the republican show. And now she wants to go solo. She wants to break away from the restraints of the RNC's grip, and do her own thing. As a result, there has been some serious infighting between the beauty queen and Mr. Morton's people; and now, rethuglicans from coast to coast, are starting to turn on each other like a bunch of robbers caught red handed by the po po. From where I sit, it couldn't have happened to a nicer set of folks. Go figure, just a few months ago Sarah was supposedly electrifying the base, but now she is a drag on the party, and republicans are jumping ship faster than the rich folks on the Titanic. Apparently, Sarah just doesn't have it anymore. (I am sure Beyonce can relate), and she needs a hit. It's been a couple of bad weeks for poor Sarah. (Tina Fey, may you rot in hell) I bet she can remember when she was packing them in all by her lonesome, and raising the roof while the party faithful chanted her name. But now, the McCain folks are acting like their failure to gain some traction is all her fault, and it's only her negatives that are hurting the salty ones chances. They made her the designated attack dog, but now the the rest of A-merry-ca is turning on the attacker, and the RNC is in a bind.
Still, it doesn't seem Sarah is buying it. Like Patti, and Beyonce, girlfriend is a Diva (or at least that's what RNC operatives say) and you how Divas can be. The world centers around them, no matter who else is in it. Even pesky RNC operatives.
Personally, I never believed the Sarah hype (as you all can see from my multiple posts about Ms. Thing), maybe it's the Philly in me, but I knew she was a fraud all along. She might have been the lead singer in the RNC band, but unlike Beyonce, and Patti, she didn't have any talent, and it was just a matter of time before the rest of the country saw what was so obvious to us field Negroes. (Thank you Tina Fey)
And I am not crying for Sarah, she will be fine. I hear she might end up being the leading figure in her party after these elections. And while she waits to be crowned as the rethuglicans version of George W. Bush, she can cool her heels doing a talk show on FAKE NEWS like the rest of her washed up republican friends.
Should be fun. Hey, maybe she can even do some Tina Fey impersonations.
