While the pundits argue over whether Ronald Reagan was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease during his tenure as President, the former president’s self-proclaimed heir apparent appeared on Sean Hannity’s pity party earlier this evening, to honor, no doubt, the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and to display her own symptoms of  advanced foot-in-mouth disease.

Of course, timing is everything, as the casting director of “Aryans on Ice”, Pat Buchanan, who defended Palin’s use of  “blood libel” against her detractors, yesterday likened the attacks on Palin last week to a “lynch mob.”

And now, Pat Buchanan has added a new hyperbolic comparison to the list, describing President Obama’s speech on Wednesday as”a fairly stern admonition, especially to the far left in this country, which has been quite frankly conducting something of a lynch mob against Glenn Beck, against Sarah Palin, against Rush Limbaugh.”

Nice, Pat. Very nice. Just in time for this particular national holiday. Yes, yes, look at the poor, oppressed rich white people who stepped in piles of their own steaming feces and now want to blame their virulent stupidity on everyone else.

But what’s really laughable is the video that went viral today in which two . . . ardent . . . fans of the Quitternator literally sing her “praises.”

They got one thing right: it’ll be a cold day in Washington (a.k.a. “Hell”) when Sarah Palin is elected President.

And just because, I thought I’d give a “Battle Hymn of the Republic” rewrite a try:

She waltzes ’round the issues with the elegance of Shrek.
Her cheerleader-in-chief is an idiot named Glenn Beck.
Watching her backpedal is like viewing a train wreck,
Her star’s on the decline.

Gore-y lovin’ Sarah Palin
English grammar? She be failin’.
On Alaska, she is bailin’.
Her star’s on the decline.

She’d start a war with Africa is she knew just where it was;
She ran for V.P. but has no idea what the V.P. does;
Her political acuity equals that of dryer fuzz,
Her star’s on the decline.

Rifle-totin’ Sarah Palin,
English grammar? She be failin’.
On Alaska, she is bailin’.
Her star’s on the decline.

She’d rig a TV dance contest to score herself a win.
You can only love your country if you wear a flag pin.
That Levi hasn’t spilled the beans is such a bloody sin,
Her star’s on the decline.

College-hoppin’ Sarah Palin,
English grammar? She be failin’.
On Alaska, she is bailin’.
Her star’s on the decline.

Thanks again, John McCain.
