Sarah Palin sweats

I didn't comment on the Vanity Fair article because it didn't reveal anything we didn't already know. But I'll comment on the interview Sarah Palin gave to Runner's World, it's priceless!

Sarah Palin talks about running, sweating, throbbing and being crappy in an interview to Runner's World.

If you go a day or a week without running, what do you learn about yourself? I feel so crappy if I go more than a few days without running. I have to run. No matter how rotten I feel before or during a run, it's always worth it to me afterwards. Sweat is my sanity. A great frustration I had during the campaign was when the McCain staff wouldn't carve out time for me to go for a run. The days never went as well if I couldn't get out there and sweat.

(I'm crappy, but hey, I'm hot and sweaty...)

Tell me about a memorable run during the campaign that really stands out. Oh, my gosh, the one that really stands out I'm embarrassed to death to repeat. I went for a run at John McCain's ranch a couple of days before the debate with Joe Biden.My favorite thing in the world is to run on hot, dusty roads. I don't get enough of that in Alaska. So I was in heaven and there were plenty of hills so I knew my thighs were going to just throb.

(I'm really embarrassing, but hey, I throb...)

How long after giving birth before you're running again? It wasn't like the very next week, it would be weeks. With Trig, it was relatively soon because I felt so good throughout the pregnancy and so great recovering, it was just a couple of weeks later and I was running again.

(My pregnancy with Trig only lasted a month and as soon as I could get rid of the square padding, I was back there running.)

What has running taught you about politics?
Same thing it's taught me about life: You have to have determination and set goals, and you don't complain when something's hurting because no one wants to hear it.

(No one wants to hear my whining, but I do it anyway. I whine about the media, the bloggers, that perverted pedophile Letterman, the desecration of my iconic picture of motherly love for my special needs child. Name anything, I can whine about it, also.)

Our President, I'm told, is a runner. Would you ever run with him? I would, absolutely. I would and people have asked if I'd ever challenge him to one-on-one because we both love basketball. But look, he towers over me and I wouldn't be complaining about an unfair advantage there.

(Yeah, the President towers over me in every respect and yeah, I'm whining.)

What about in a race? Could you beat the president? I betcha I'd have more endurance. My one claim to fame in my own little internal running circle is a sub-four marathon. It wasn't necessarily a good running time, but it proves I have the endurance within me to at least gut it out and that is something, if you ever talk to my old coaches they'd tell you, too. What I lacked in physical strength or skill I made up for in determination and endurance. So if were a long race that required a lot of endurance I'd win.

(What I lack in intelligence and common sense I make up for in hotness. Look how I sweat, look at my tight abs and throbbing thighs, I'm hot! I'm hotter than the President. Ya betcha!)

Is Sarah Palin 14 or 45 years old?
All she's missing are the pom-poms.

Seriously, she has to be one of the most immature 40+ women in the USA.

She is absolutely ridiculous. And she doesn't even realize it!

"With Trig, it was relatively soon because I felt so good throughout the pregnancy and so great recovering, it was just a couple of weeks later and I was running again."

That must be when she used the baby jogger to breastfeed on the run. What else you got to sell, Sarah?

EyeOnYou said...

Oh this was by far my favorite comment from her....

What has running taught you about politics?

Same thing it's taught me about life: You have to have determination and set goals, and you don't complain when something's hurting because no one wants to hear it.


So Sarah, when does the "don't complain" part actually kick in with you???

So when do we drop our subscriptions to Runner's World?

The Flag desicration really bothers me.

All of these pics have been overly posed or photoshopped. The last pic has a reflection in the window. Very poorly done, amateurish. Maybe she did them herself with Todd taking them. Another one of her talents? Really sad. Why not just be a governor?

Ridiculous, just ridiculous.

Love your comments, Regina ... :))

And I agree, it is all about being "HOT" ... that is all she cares about.

When oh when will this monster go down in flames???

Thanks, John McCain ... YOU ARE ENTIRELY TO BLAME!!!!

This cannot be good for me so early in the morning.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Everyone with a Runner's World subscription should write into them! We should all write letters protesting the desecration the flag (now that IS desecration in that photo--and probably some AIP signal).

Clearly, Sarah Palin thinks being a governor involves "exciting the men folk" in any way she can. She believes "exciting the men folk" is her path to power. She thinks she can "Rich Lowryze" all men folk who look at her photo; she thinks she has sex magic.

Totally agree that her pictures are all photoshopped. You can see the outline around her in them.

She is the most mentally ill female politician I have ever seen in a sitting gov't position. And I have watched politics a long time.

O/T. Did everyone read Halcro's new piece on the AGIA, directly mentioning RAM and saying how stupid she is?

Bree Palin said...

I went over and read the comments by the Sea4Pee'ers, and she's definitely exciting her base!

@Bree, glad to hear it. Maybe they will step away from their keyboards and start running. Far away. A win/win for all concerned.

midnightcajun said...

Words fail me on the photos and all the hot and sweaty and throbbing quotes.

But the "Betcha I can beat Obama 'cause I've got endurance and determination" quote made me laugh out loud. She is such a little high school mean girl, still in a twist over loosing the election. "Na-na-na, I'm still better than you even if you won! And I'll beat ya next time!"

And one thing the Vanity Fair article said that I didn't know was that Alaska has no tradition of the governor pardoning a turkey. So she did that little photo op because the "winner" got to do it. She went to Kosovo because Biden did. I think there's a pattern here, and it's not indicative of sanity.

OT, but have you seen Sarah's 4th of July video? The one with the GOPesque likening of our African American president to a gorilla?

Dianne said...

Run, Sarah, run BUT NOT FOR POLITICAL OFFICE ever again. Run all the way to the western shores of Alaska, swim to Russia and then just keep running. Trash your guts out while you're at it.



wv - wardo as in Sarah's a wierdo.

This made me raise my eyebrows so high that they almost fell off my face.So, she says it was weeks before she started running again, except the next sentence she says a couple of weeks. Does she not understand that WEEKS means more than two, and a COUPLE means two?

Now we know why she's so crazy. Dehydration.

When Katie Couric asked that famous question, why didn't Sarah remember that she reads "Runners World?"

A Former Runner said...

Running Physics for Morons:
Let's take a good look at this, Ms. Sarah. You think you can beat President Obama running. In a race. Both you and President Obama have a high degree of physical fitness. Okay. BUT: You are soooo short (5'6 or less?) and he is tall (over 6 feet) . His legs are longer than yours. Think about the physics there, Sarah. Can you beat hubby Todd in a race? No? Then how you could beat President Obama? Todd is shorter than President Obama.

I'd bet First Lady Michelle can outrun you, too.

Maybe you should start challenging other governors to footraces before you take on the White House.

How about you and Sanford running in a race? There's a possible win for you. He hasn't had time to work out much lately with all his trips to Argentina on South Carolina's dime.

I spewed coffee on this one.

lynnrockets said...

Terrific post. This is an interview that I probably would not have come across on my own. The more Sarah speaks the more the nation can see how truly strange she is.

sandra said...

All the outrage of the desecration of an ionic image should be redirected at the violation of flag etiquette. Do you suppose that is how she displays the flag in her home?

lisabeth said...

I took a leap and looked at C 4 Pee yesterday. Wow! The ignorance is just overwhelming!! They think that Romney is behind the article at Vanity Fair. That is just funny.

I think we should be just as afraid of RAM as Sarah Palin. The woman has a real obsession with Sarah Palin and is not objective about her at all.

A few people were commenting about the Katie Couric interview and the way they say it is twisted. They think Couric set her up and they say Katie Couric isn't a real journalist anyhow.

They are unreal. I didn't know there were people so stupid. Seriously just plain stupid. There is no other word for it . I bet they all have a history of having other idols in their past. Just wait until Scarh lets them down, and she will.....She certainly does not care about them.

About these photos, well she looks good for her age, I'll give her that. But, they are very odd poses for someone who is a governor and wants to be president. The photo with the flag is just bad for so many reaons.

Bree Palin said...

I just noticed something reading Wonkette's take on the article in Runner's World. I didn't read the "interview" because the photos were already too much for me. But apparently in the interview she recounts how she fell running in AZ while preparing for the VP debate and how she swore the secret service to secrecy because she was embarrassed and how they've kept her secret all these many months. This is a total lie. On the day of the VP debate I remember the news showing her walking down the stairs off the plane in whatever city that debate was held in and she was carrying Trig and you could see a big white bandage on her hand. The news person - I think I was listening to Wolf Blitzer - said that the bandage was because she had fallen while out for a run.

Sarah is short, maybe 5'3" at MOST.

I'm thinking about challenging her governorship with a swim. If I out-swim her (and I will), I take over as governor. Heck, I'll even give her a 50m head start just because I'm so nice.

You think she'll take me up on my offer??

Helen said...

The flag thing is just what she does, she can't just come out and make short shorts outta it now can she, so um....just wrap it around sumpin, near me...okay?

Hey, isn't it interesting that BIRTH QUESTIONS are creeping in to every interview, no matter how banal?

Oh please Sarah, become a country singer, I promise I'll buy your first album to get you out of politics, you'll be rich because of your base and all the others like me...gawd is this the spawn of a new website? "Vote For Sarah Palin - Country Singer, NOT Country President!"

FEDUP!!! said...

Well, I see that she is running... for beauty queen of over-40 year old women!
Those poses she does in the runners mag are ridiculous for a governor - and for a runner.
What's up with that pink yoga picture?
The flag picture speaks for itself, and, as someone mentioned, might actually be a signal for the AIP...

Her thighs are throbbing, she loves to sweat... Ooooohhhh, Aaaaaaaahhhh - can we say sexual innuendo here???

Oh, my gosh, the one that really stands out I'm embarrassed to death to repeat. I went for a run at John McCain's ranch a couple of days before the debate with Joe Biden. My favorite thing in the world is to run on hot, dusty roads. I don't get enough of that in Alaska. So I was in heaven and there were plenty of hills so I knew my thighs were going to just throb and my lungs were going to burn and that's what I crave.

I like running alone and having the Secret Service with me added a little bit of pressure. I'm thinking I gotta have good form and can't be hyperventilating and can't be showing too much pain and that adds a little more pressure on you as you're trying to be out there enjoying your run. Then I fell coming down a hill and was so stinkin' embarrassed that a golf cart full of Secret Service guys had to pull up beside me. My hands just got torn up and I was dripping blood. In the debate you could see a big fat ugly Band-Aid on my right hand. I have a nice war wound now as a reminder of that fall in the palm of my right hand. For much of the campaign, shaking hands was a little bit painful.

I don't remember news reports about it.
Heck no! I made those guys swear to secrecy. And I probably should have gotten a couple stitches. But I was insisting with these guys, "Absolutely not, let's just wash it out." I appreciated how much care they took to help me out. So anyway, I have a little scar on my hand, and I've seen a couple of pictures from the debate or of me waving to someone on the campaign trail with that Band-Aid and I think, nobody else knows about it.

So the Secret Service guys kept silent?
They did! And I have this great respect for them that they've kept silent all these months later.

And now, in Runner's World, Sarah Palin reveals--in addition to her Narcissistic Personality Disorder--her Atalanta complex! (Look up the myth. You'll see I'm right!)

Anonymous said...

@lisabeth, the person you mentioned is probably "in love" with SP. That is another reason for the delusional behavior.

Hi Gail,

Yes, I read it. They're beginning to devour each other. Sarah Palin has this wonderful knack to divide people and turn old friends into sworn enemies...

Anon, there's a comment section with this article, but you have to register to leave a comment. It might be worth it, though.

FED UP!!! snorted, "Her thighs are throbbing, she loves to sweat... Ooooohhhh, Aaaaaaaahhhh - can we say sexual innuendo here???"

We sure can. Of the totally exhibitionistic sort. When I was an adolescent, a quote I read in a novel by Patrick Dennis (of "Auntie Mame" fame) really stuck with me. The character is being bored to tears by questionable sexual antics, translated into English at great length by the self-proclaimed Lothario's son. Finally, the guy gets fed up and says, "Please tell your father that in America, sex is like money. The people who really have it don't talk about it."

Of course, America has a loooong tradition of celebrities who've made a career out of appearing "sexy" to certain people, but this fictional, fake Lothario wasn't one of them. And IMHO, SP shouldn't be one of them, either: Being POTUS calls for an entirely different, much more comprehensive skill set, not incompatible with also having six-pack abs. Which our current President owns, AS WELL AS a high level of academic and practical reasoning skills. President Obama formerly taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, not aerobics.

Palinbots like to say that people like us are "just jealous." For years, I too was an avid, if slow, distance runner. It was one of the things I had to give up when I had children. I made a choice to do so. I don't regret it at all. Pushing a laden stroller while doing errands, yes. Putting in all that time to run solo was simply out of the question, as a full-time mom without help or a passel of relatives nearby.

Doesn't "you're just jealous!" sound more Mean Girl Middle School than anything?? If I were a Republican woman, I'd be banging my head against the table in despair. But since I'm not, I'm just sorry that SP believes that SHE sets the standard for high-accomplishment womanhood.

WV: soccer!

Bree Palin said...

I have to jump in to say that I looooove Patrick Dennis! Thanks for throwing that out there!

Ugh - "SP believes that SHE sets the standard for high-accomplishment womanhood" - I think she does think this! The horror!

MrsTarquinBiscuitbarrel said...

One of Patrick Dennis' best, but less-known, novels is "Genius." That's where the quote comes from. Nice to find another PD fan (from the many many years in which "PD" didn't automatically signal "PalinDeception" to me)! Eric Myers also wrote a wonderful biography of Dennis a few years ago, called "Uncle Mame." Highly recommended!

Bree Palin said...

MrsTB - When you threw out Patrick Dennis' name this morning, it made me want to go re-read some of his books. But I think I will track down that bio instead - thanks for the recommendation! And then re-read. It looks like Genius and some others are quite hard to find, but I'm sure they are worth the effort. Thanks for putting this in my head today!
