Palin Continues Pretend Presidential Campaign in New Hampshire

Another day, another opportunity for Sarah Palin to pretend she is running for president.

Despite claims by anonymous sources that Sarah Palin's speech in Iowa on Saturday at yet another teabagger rally would be "important and news-making," the half-term governor did not make any announcement regarding her future plans, other than to continue to speak utter nonsense whenever a) someone is willing to pay her to do so, or b) she is likely to face a crowd of mouth-breathing idiots who actually think she should run for president because, according to one such mouth-breather who drove 387 miles on Saturday just to see her speak, "If she wins, it will change the dynamic in the country. Women of all kinds will support her."

And lest you think this poor fool needs to take a look at three years of polls that say otherwise, pffft. Sarah had an answer to that:

Polls — they’re for strippers and cross-country skiers.

But at the end of her nonsensical hate speech, the promised decision of whether to continue to pretend she's relevant or to actually put her money where her mouth is so the voters can definitely tell her that she isn't relevant did not come.

And yet today, she was back on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, serving up some more of her asshattery, but apparently without all the cameras rolling.

Fortunately, there is Twitter to tell us what we missed (or didn't miss):

There was, of course, the obligatory bashing of the lamestream media for paying too much not enough attention to Sarah racists in silly costumes:

The fawning fans who have no grasp of any kind of reality whatsoever:

The part of the speech where she talks about how pointless speeches are:

The hilariously unintentional irony, with a side of gobbledygook, about how quitting is for dead fish who float upstream and don't run toward danger or something:

And of course, delusions of grandeur:

Having listened to Palin's toxic tantrum on Saturday, and then having read the real-time summary of her toxic spew today on Twitter, the most important lesson here is that Sarah has not made any decisions about whether to run for president Sarah is still an idiot eye bleeding is not as painful as ear bleeding.
