Sarah Palin thinks the President lives at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue

God bless her disastrous little soul.

Great piece from Olivia Nuzzi at the Daily Beast:

Had John McCain been elected president in 2008, Sarah Palin still may not have ever set foot in the White House…because she wouldn’t have been able to find it.

Sarah Palin as a sportscaster in Alaska. The early days.

Sarah Palin as a sportscaster in Alaska. The early days.

On Friday afternoon, the failed reality-television star and one-time VP nominee materialized in Washington, clad in a leather blazer, to deliver a speech to the crowd at the Values Voter Summit—an annual social-conservative confab held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, a sprawling, gilded maze of a place that is rumored to be haunted by a dead maid.

Maybe she was the one screwing with Palin’s notes, because about halfway through her remarks, Palin said this: “Don’t retreat: You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue. Anyway, truth.”

The White House is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    It still amazes me, to no end, that John McCain has a shred of credibility left after foisting this proudly ignorant hillbilly on the nation. Yet he still shows up dutifully every Sunday to impart his wisdom to the nation.

    Just once, because one time is all it would take, I would love someone across the table to reply to him, “John, you thought Sarah Palin was the second most-qualified person in the United States to serve as president. Thereby your opinion is completely inconsequential to any issue of relevance in this country.”

    At least she got the street name right… I mean that’s something right? Meh… who am I fooling. This idiot is a total twit.

    Obviously Ms. Palin doesn’t know how to use Google Earth or her cell phone’s navigation app.

    Hey, you better go easy on her. She is intellectually superior to all of us. After all, she reads newspapers and magazines–“all of them!”

  6. woodroad34 says:

    That picture of her from her “sportscasting” days really makes her look ditzy. I look at it and see cartoon eyes pinwheeling around and her pursed mouth is going “oooooo, lots of dogs!”. She shoulda stayed on the heath.

    Palin is an endangered meme…. flickering, flickering and phffffttt. Out.

  8. therling says:

    Now we know her ability to use numbers is similar to the way she uses words.

  9. Badgerite says:

    At least she got the right city.

    I heard one time, I forget where (and it may have even been here; I’m really tired right now) that Mitt Romney did show his tax returns to one person: John McCain. Who immediately turned around and chose Sarah Palin for his running mate. That will never make me stop laughing.

    “Missed it by *that much*!”

  12. Haviva says:

    Well, for her that wasn’t too bad!

    Oh goddness….that was golden!

    “Why, that damned Muslim Kenyan even moved the White House!” ;)

    “I believe in making up my own addresses … just as Shakespeare did”, refudiated Mrs. Palin.

    If the “Whining Wannabe from Wasilla” had to refrain from showcasing her ignorance, shallowness, and pettiness while delivering eye roll-inducing oratories to a gathering of mindless minions … she would be speechless.

    Jeebus H. Jumpin’ Krist on a stick, would someone please take her, Michelle Bachmann and Ann Coulter and drop them into the sun? Silencing just those three dimwits would improve American politics beyond measure.

  17. BeccaM says:

    I find her obsession with gun metaphors to be disturbing.

    Then again, everything about her is disturbing. Including the fact McCain and his people thought she was a terrific choice for the second highest elected office in America.

    The day when the default response to any mention of her is “Sarah who?” cannot come soon enough.

    The best parody of “Leave Brittney Alone” I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing.

  19. FLL says:

    No one explains it as well as Ester Golberg. Leave Sarah Palin alone:

  20. It’s not like she ran a national campaign to work there or anything…
