Sarah Palin goes Eastwood on Obama

Sarah Palin utilized one of her three avenues for communication to deliver a policy pronouncement yesterday. Piggy-backing on the notoriety of Clint Eastwood’s empty chair, the author, reality television star, former half-term governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee sent out the following tweet.

America’s kids are going to be stuck paying for Obama’s Empty Chair Style of Leadership #EmptyChairDay

If you click the link you will see a plastic baby chair strapped to an otherwise empty chair. Ah, Palin. She’s such a card. I guess it’s too much to ask that she produce her own detailed plan to reduce the deficit, reform entitlements and create jobs for the millions of Americans who need work. There’s a lot to criticize President Obama for. But having a 140-character policy fight with the president of the United States is pathetic for someone who eschewed actual national leadership.

Palin had an opportunity to run for Obama’s job and she opted to stay rich and unaccountable. That’s understandable. The world outside the Mama Grizzly’s natural habitat of Twitter, Facebook and Fox News is rather unforgiving of the unserious.
