Welcome to Sarah Palin's Funhouse

I figured the Texas lineup of Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. Rick Perry, and a carnival sideshow of far-right Congress critters assured my state the glory of being the hands-down winner of the 2014 blue-ribbon prize for “Goofiest Politicos in America.”


But now, a former winner has surged from obscurity to become the frontrunner. Yes, folks, Sarah Palin is back.

The former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 running mate on the Republican presidential ticket has been awarded a reality TV show about (what else?) herself. You can find it on SPC. You know, the Sarah Palin Channel.

Instead of just another show, there’s a whole new channel that’s all Palin, all the time. Don’t look for it in your TV listings. It’s on the Internet and a yearly subscription costs $99.95.

That’s the price of entry into the deep rabbit hole that is Sarah’s Wonderland, where she expertly weighs in on everything from “the war on Christmas” to the moral imperative of our country waterboarding our enemies, saying that water torture is “how we baptize terrorists.”

Of course, a recurring theme is her hilarious demand that Congress impeach President Barack Obama.

She lectures that among other impeachable acts, Obama has opened the U.S.-Mexico border “to a flood of illegal immigrants,” explaining darkly that this “is deliberate,” fulfilling his diabolical goal for the “fundamental transformation of America.”

This isn’t her first attempt to remove the man who kept her and McCain out of the White House. Last year she wanted him impeached because he and Congress were going to raise our nation’s debt limit, as previous presidents have done.

This time though, Palin upped her game. She’s declaring that any member of Congress “who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment” should also be removed.

Wow, even Ted Cruz hasn’t topped that, but you can bet he’ll try. Go Ted! Texas is counting on you.
