Sarah Palin Mocks Time’s Selection of Obama as ‘Person of the Year’

If you thought being a presidential election loser and a resigned governor who became a national laughingstock meant Sarah Palin would no longer be inflicted on the American populace, you would be wrong.

Palin is making headlines today for mocking Time Magazine’s choice of President Obama as its “Person of the Year.” But at least this time, while trashing Obama on Fox, Palin did so in a way that was humorous and self-deprecating.

“Time magazine, I think there’s some irrelevancy there to tell you the truth,” she said in that peculiar, syntax-challenged Palin-speak. “I mean consider their list of the most influential people in the country and in the world. Some who have made that list? Yours truly. That oughta tell ya something right there regarding the credence we should give Time magazine and their list of people.”

Palin has twice been selected as one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People.”

In its selection of Obama, Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel wrote that Obama deserved the honor because he “forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.”

But Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee who got thrashed by Obama as part of the McCain ticket, said “those are some silly words chosen to describe Barack Obama.”

“When I first heard that, the first thing that popped in my mind was: What the heck has he done? Really, what has he done, except drive us over a fiscal cliff,” she said. “What has he done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union? For the life of me, I don’t know.”

Palin offered this assessment of the proper path “toward a more perfect union.”

“The path toward a more perfect union is our Constitution and I think we’ve seen examples of our President not necessarily following the Constitution,” she said. “In fact, he’s wanting to change the Constitution because he see it as a charter of negatives…and he’s made statements in the past about his view of our Constitution. And following the Constitution is the blueprint toward a more perfect union.”

If the Founding Fathers truly agreed with Palin, they wouldn’t have seen the need to continually add amendments to the constitution. But let us not pick nits with the former governor.

  1. was obama ever on the "100 Most Influential People" list before he became Prez?

  2. No kidding, what has Obama done? According to the hopey changey Prez, my medical insurance was supposed to go down $2500. Hey it's gone up $2500 and even more in the last two years. Is anybody in shouting distance that has had their medical insurance go down $2500? What company is that? And next year we really start paying the tax in this Unaffordable Care Act. What a fraud and liar.

  3. Hitler was man of the year I think in 1938

  4. Sarah Palin is trailer trash, with no social redeeming qualities who opinions matter to one! She should keep her ignorant thoughts to herself and do America a favor and disappear! And all you individuals with no life and agree with these ignorant comments need to move on to something else! Nobody cares what you think so kick rocks and keep it moving!

  5. sarah , the joke of the republican party and the joke is on them , with her on the way to the bank? : )

  6. republican party it become republican looser..ouf..Sarah doesn't know where is Africa and she want to be 2 person to lead the world..smh.

  7. Ok Sarah but weren't you a part of that election being McCain's dressed barbie doll with full knowledge that the election was a done deal. There were too many chiefs in the last four years with too much under the table. Bad deal for everyone who especially the health care law instead of a Universal Health Care Program for all. This seems to be a kgb socialism deal.

  8. I thought the "laughingstock" the author was talking about was Barack Obama.After all, he can't create jobs, has destroyed our freedoms and worsened poverty and unemployment among everyone(including minorities).Good for Sarah! Shame on the racism of black Americans for voting for this foolish man simply because of the shade of his skin.

  9. Sarah……..Palin? And you are….
