Over the weekend, the rejected gubernatorial candidate from the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan, Karrion, er Kari Lake was barnstorming Iowa for some reason (does one actively campaign to be a VP pick?):
BETTENDORF, Iowa — For two days, Kari Lake traversed this state with a clear message. She falsely claimed the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. She baselessly insisted that votes were rigged against her in her run for Arizona governor last year. And she warned without evidence that future races will be compromised.
“If you lose, lose with dignity. You shake the other person’s hand and walk away,” she told a crowd of approximately 200 at a reception hall on Friday, describing advice from her father on how to gracefully accept defeat. “I didn’t lose, so I’m not doing that.”
Karrion doesn’t know what the phrase lose with dignity means, nor many other phrases, apparently.
During a pair of stops Friday and Saturday in Iowa, Lake drew enthusiastic crowds here and in Ankeny. She walked onstage to Lenny Kravitz’s “American Woman.” She shook hands with supporters. She signed autographs. When an audience member here shouted, “Trump VP!,” Lake giggled at the outburst and repeated it.
I bet she did.
“Trump VP,” Lake said, speaking of the former president, who in his third run for the White House has continued to make false claims about his 2020 election defeat. “I love President Trump. I will do everything in my power to get that man elected.”
And so there we have it: the Republican base is not moving on from The Big Lie and The Biggest Loser.
And we now have Sarah Palin 2.0. Smoother, more polished, more telegenic, more crazy, and even more unencumbered by any trace of a political experience background.

The barrel isn’t empty yet. They can always scrape another candidate off the bottom sludge. “Basket of Deplorables” was actually far too kind.

Does she think Vincent Price bequeathed his baronetcy of Arizona to her upon his passing ?
