Evaluating the Intellectual Acumen of Sarah Palin: Just How Stupid IS She? - Updates with Steve Schmidt on HBO and Matthew Dowd on ABC

by Sunnyjane

OK, Politicalgaters, it's time to sharpen your snark scalpels and have some fun venting your spleens. It's cheaper and less time-consuming than professional therapy, and it can be done in the privacy of your own home!

The Pleasure of Your Participation is Requested

Everyone is invited to offer five examples of Palin's stupidity, in response to the following:

    Sarah Palin is so stupid, she...

Send them to me in an email at  I'll put together a post of as many as possible, depending on the volume.  Please be sure to include your Politicalgates/Disqus name, because I'll be naming names giving credit where credit is due, you betcha!

Just a few rules: Please keep it classy and keep it (fairly) clean.  And please do not put them in a comment.  That would spoil the whole thing!

End Note

I don't think I'm going to appreciate this!

Sarah Palin is so stupid, she'd... have to have Bristol torment Google to find the answer to: In what year did the War of 1812  start?


UPDATE (by Patrick):

I am sure that Sunnyjane won't mind me adding the following new clip with Steve Schmidt on Bill Maher Real Time.

Steve Schmidt and his latest Sarah Palin smackdown, funny and precise:

This was the pretty hilarious exchange between Bill Maher and Steve Schmidt - an "unscripted" exchange, so to speak:

MAHER: Steve Schmidt, ‘Is it possible you picked Sarah Palin the wrong year?’ Oh, my. ‘Could she have swung the women vote in 2012 enough to have put Romney in the White House?’


MAHER: No? That’s your answer?


MAHER: Never again. Your feeling is there never is a good time for Sarah Palin?


MAHER: Well, do you think she has learned anything in the years since?


Yes, Steve Schmidt also knows that Sarah Palin is very stupid...and he certainly knows much, much more.


UPDATE 2 (by Patrick):

We are being spoilt today! Another sweet clip from another show, discussing Sarah Palin. This time, George W. Bush's former chief strategist Matthew Dowd (link to his twitter) was the one to deliver the smack down.

Raw Story reports:

President George W. Bush’s former chief strategist Matthew Dowd is slamming the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for snubbing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) while inviting former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who he asserts “wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract.”

Wall Street Journal editor Paul Gigot on Sunday told an ABC News panel that CPAC had made a mistake by not inviting Christie after he pushed Congress for Hurricane Sandy relief funds and backed some gun-control legislation following last year’s mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

“If I were CPAC, I would have invited Christie and let him say what he wanted on guns or anything else,” Gigot insisted. “And if you disagree with him, boo him or what have you. But this is a time that the Republican Party needs to have a debate, and a pretty raucous debate.”

“CPAC, to me, has totally diminished its credibility as an organization,” Dowd agreed. “And you invite Sarah Palin, who wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract? But she’s invited to CPAC meeting?”

Democratic strategist James Carville, however, welcomed the CPAC move as something that could help Democrats by elevating fringe elements in the Republican Party.

“Any day that you have more Sarah Palin and less Chris Christie is a good day for James Carville,” he quipped. “I’m all for it!”
