Saradise Lost - Book 2 - Chapter 50 -- "She Could ALSO Be Getting Bad Advice"

From the Washington Post's Balance of Power online chat with Tucker Carlson and Ana Marie Cox, this morning:

Hollywood: Is Sarah Palin getting really bad advice or is she just plain nuts? Why would she weigh in on the Miss California gay marriage question?


Ana Marie Cox:
I reject your binary choices.


I know McCain staffers who will swear up, down and sideways that she's genuinely nuts.


("Then why did you put her on the ticket?" I ask, to which they say, "It seemed like a good idea at the time! And, look, the polling improved!" To which I say, "But you're glad you lost, then, since it prevented a crazy person being in the White House?" Then they say: "Let me think about that.)


But let's face it, she could ALSO be getting bad advice.

Took a poll...yup she's just plain nuts.

Hey she has those kids of hers as "State Employees" and they get per diem for heaven's sake.

They put her on the ticket because she had not yet opened her mouth. Typical candidate vetting. They got exactly what they deserved.

I go with both, but I think that the bad advice stems from the nuts thing--if you look for bad advice, you are almost certain to get plenty of it.

cf George W Bush, the emperor of bad advice. He's her role model. Sadly.

Ana Marie knows of what she speaks. She was very chummy with the McCain camp. I would go with both.

I'd be willing to bet that it isn't as much "bad advice" as it is she is ignoring advice because she wants to be the one who is the "decider" of all things Palin.

I think all of you are right. There is an underlying problem with SP. She has a serious personality disorder (untreated) that would make her unable and unwilling to accept anyone's advice.
She is not a rational human being. Witness the fruit flies that surround her.
She hand picks the advice she receives based upon what she thinks, not the advice given.
Megalomania is also a symptom of her disorder.
It is also what will continue to bring her down. Please note that a few rational Republics believe that if she and Limpballs, and Cheney (not to be confused with each other) are THE head of the GOP in 2012, that it will be a blowout for the GOP - a true bloodbath.

I think it has nothing to do with taking or ignoring advice. I think Sarah is doing this all on her own. She feels Carrie is a kindred spirit.

Not only a christian and a beauty pageant runner up.....but also played basketball in school.

She is getting bad advice but SHE IS AN EXTREME NARCISSIST, A PERSONALITY DISORDER OF WHICH SHE IS THE POSTER CHID!

And, since when has it ever appeared Palin takes ANYONE"S ADVICE?

Wasn't it Wev Shea who long ago told her to drop Troopergate before it got any bigger. AND I KNOW IT WAS A JUDGE IN THE FIGHT OVER CUSTODY OF WOOTEN'S KIDS WHO TOLD THE PALINS THEY WERE BEING ABUSIVE TO THE CHILD MALIGNING HIS DAD TOT HE EXTREME !

Palin is NUTS because she doesnt know enough to know what is bad advice and face it, "the bad advice" has been going on for a long time now.

Sorry, but the woman is mentally ill and is going to get worse as her house of cards falls. We are watching a play about narcissists based on the true story of Sarah Palin.

Ask Celtic Diva to share the material I sent her on Narcissism and Violence. THEY ARE MENTALL ILL, BUT DO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG.

THEY JUST DON'T CARE ! Literally, they cannot get outside of themselves enough to care one way or the other about others, and the need for immediate gratification prevents their thinking about consequences to follow.

It is hard to accept we have a mentally ill person in office but trying to explain it away---even just a tiny bit-- by "blaming bad advice" is doing what Palin does best, BLAMING OTHERS.

Sorry, the woman is 100% responsible for her on lack of character, intergrity, responsibility, and acceptance of consequences.

DENIAL LOOKS PRETTY ATTRACTIVE SOMETIMES, BUT BETTER TO FACE REALITY AND GET THE PAIN(palin) OVER WITH.

I don't think it is bad advice, I don't she and Todd listen to anyone. When I think about that close to midnite retort to Pat Dougherty over at ADN regarding "who is Trig's real mom". Who in their right mind would of said, engage him publically on that one. In fact she is always pushing the envelope on her lies. Who would advise that? I bet it's all they can do these days to keep her reigned in. I can't wait for this book and all the tall tales she is going to be telling. I betcha she won't be taking anyones advice. Putting all her lies down on paper? Geez. Some call Pastor Muthuee, Sarah needs a blessing.
