Sarah Palin Says She Wants To Join Congress To Fight 'Namby Pamby Wussy P*ssy' Stuff In Bonkers Interview
Fox News

Speaking on Fox News, former Alaska Republican Governor Sarah Palin hinted she would run for Congress to fight "namby pamby wussy p*ssy stuff," a turn of phrase that earned her widespread ridicule.

Palin, who rose to prominence after the late Arizona Republican Senator John McCain chose her to be his running mate in the 2008 election, told Fox News personality that she is considering a political comeback because she has "nothing to lose."

Palin said:

“There is a time and a season for everything and if this season is one where I need a more official platform to have then, yeah, I’m going to throw my hat in the ring because we need people that have cojones."
“We need people like Donald Trump who has nothing to lose, like me. We’ve got nothing to lose and no more of this vanilla milquetoast namby-pamby wussy-p*ssy stuff that’s been going on.”
“That’s why our country is in the mess that we’re in, because people who run for office, they look at it as a job or as a business instead of as a calling."

Palin did not elaborate on what she meant by "namby pamby wussy p*ssy stuff" but her remarks appeared to be a slight against Democrats, whom Republicans have often accused of spending more time focusing on identity politics than on matters regarding the economy or immigration, particularly at the nation's southern frontier.

Palin also apparently forgets that former President Trump long pledged to run the United States government like a business, and many of his top aides, including his son-in-law Jared Kusher, made his business acumen the focal point of an often incendiary campaign that regularly expressed grievances with Democratic economic policies.

For instance, in October 2016, just weeks before the presidential election, Trump linked his corporate record to his potential performance as President, saying he would keep the government “Under budget and ahead of schedule."

The irony, however, is that Trump's corporate record is anything but stellar, betraying a long line of failed businesses and bankruptcy filings, to say nothing of how his freewheeling approach to federal finances led to an "explosive rise" in the national debt, per a ProPublica analysis.

Palin was harshly criticized


Palin's remarks bring to mind similar commentary from Republicans who've repeatedly suggested, as part of a "culture war" campaign strategy, that Democrats have pushed "woke" policies that have weakened America's standing and catered to a limited progressive base.

Recently, Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon, who offered praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin, suggesting that the United States should support Putin even as he proceeds with a violent invasion of Ukraine because he is "anti-woke" and has criticized his country's LGBTQ+ community for openly flying Pride flags.

Last year, Lauren Boebert, a Colorado Republican, made the absurd claim that Democrats are "trying to get rid of parents" by employing gender-neutral language, a purposely misconstruing of a move by the House of Representatives, which had months before approved rules about the language that would be used in official documents as part of an effort to be more inclusive.
