Person who is not even trying #2: Sarah Palin
I know, surprise surprise the laziest woman in politics isn't even trying. But really, it seems like whoever writes her social media posts for her used to put a little effort into making them coherent, didn't they?
Here's her post about Hillary Rodham Clinton:
Leave Hillary Alone, Bullies
Aww, c'mon guys, give her a break. Anyone can be out of commission.... for weeks on end... whilst in the heat of battle for the highest office in the land.
Um, okay. But she absolutely has not been out of commission for weeks on end, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make.
For instance: here is a list of the campaign events she held in July.

Okay, that's 24 days on,, seven days off, including July 4th weekend, with multiple events on most days. Including visits to hostile territory on the 14th and 31st. When has she been "out of commission?"
By the way, this took me about 10 seconds on Google to find.
No press conferences for nearly a year? No scheduled campaign events for days upon days?
Okay, I'll give you the press conference thing. She really should hold more. Or some. But she's giving interviews pretty much every day to some reporter or FOX employee so it's not like she's incommunicado. And when are these "days upon days" that she has no events scheduled? Since you're too lazy to type "Clinton campaign schedule" into the Google, let me give you this link: https://hillaryspeeches.com/scheduled-events/
If it's not too much trouble, you could click on it and see all the events she has scheduled for almost every day in the coming month.
No statements, no answers, no accountability, no problem. Layin' low to run out the clock before November, but you're SEXIST for noticing it.
Jeezus Christ, you're too lazy to pronounce words correctly when you're TYPING them? "Layin' low?" Seriously? Just type the fucking G. (See how I spelled out "fucking" even though in normal speech I would probably have dropped the "g" and pronounced it "fuckin'?" Wasn't that hard!)
Also, you're not sexist for noticing it. You're delusional for noticing it. You're delusional for thinking it's a real thing. You're either an idiot or a liar for mentioning it.
And you're MISOGYNIST for questioning a female's fitness. Good thing media didn't hound the crap out of '08 candidate John McCain for his decades-old military medical records or I'd guess them to be hypocrites.
What? When? When did the media ever "hound the crap" out of John McCain re: his military service? When has the media ever been anything less than deferential to John McCain when it comes to his military service? Maybe you're thinking of John Kerry? I mean, the media didn't necessarily trash Kerry's military service, bu they sure as hell enabled the slanderous pricks who did.
The only person who has EVER had a problem with John McCain's military service is your buddy Trump.
Leave Hillary alone! All that email-evidenced yoga, and wedding planning, and cookie-baking-grandma-duty wears you out. Believe you me.
Okay, I get that it wears you out. Serving half a term as governor wore you out. Ten minutes of debate prep wore you out. But Hillary's schedule is goddamm insane and she isn't wearing down. She isn't worn out. She comes bounding onto each stage with that phony smile plastered on her face, gives her stump speech with the same fake enthusiasm night after night, then jumps on a plane headed to the next town like a god damn rock star. And I know this is what every candidate fro president does, I'm not saying she deserves any special credit for doing something Bob Dole was able to do, but still. Where the hell would you get the idea that she is worn out?
Heck, even those of us claiming to be fit as a (seasoned?) fiddle, hit bumps in the wellness road. Even I. Especially I. (Remember Piper's middle name is "Grace"; mine isn't.)
Wait, her middle name is a real name? So you are familiar with real names? You didn't have to go with Brisket and Rock and Peepee and Dweezil?
Rock-running recently, I tripped over my own two feet and crashed & burned face-first. I recovered with the doc's SuperGlue, and now any man who asks "what happened?" I'll refer to as just a mean ol' SEXIST bully.
Yeah, that's a totally sane reaction. Someone expresses concern (or curiosity) and you respond by calling him a sexist bully. Completely what a normal person would do.
Also, I don't know who this guy with the super glue is, but I don't think he's a doctor. You can sniff glue with him all you want, but I wouldn't get into his van!
Glad for Hillary's protective media's precedence. The next woman running for POTUS has no need to answer to much of anything, for we've got weddings to plan, and Down Dogs to do, and cookies in the oven! So just leave us alone, boys.
- Sarah Palin
None of that made any sense. I've read that through a dozen times and the best guess I can come up with is that you think the press is giving Hillary a free pass? Or going easy on her? Or something like that? Maybe?
I don't know. But seriously, Sarah, you've got to put a little more effort into this. It's like you're not even trying.
