Even when she is out of the political spotlight, Sarah Palin is tripping all over herself – literally! Palin was reportedly running through some rocky, mountainous terrain when she took a bit of a tumble and bruised up her face.

Not really a story, right?

Except for the fact that Palin took the opportunity to make a statement about feminism and Hillary Clinton’s apparent misuse of her gender roles to dodge questions from the press.


Said Palin:

“Rock-running recently, I tripped over my own two feet and crashed & burned face-first. I recovered with the doc’s SuperGlue, and now any man who asks ‘what happened?’ I’ll refer to as just a mean ol’ SEXIST bully.

Glad for Hillary’s protective media’s precedence. The next woman running for POTUS has no need to answer to much of anything, for we’ve got weddings to plan, and Down Dogs to do, and cookies in the oven! So just leave us alone, boys.”

I mean, you have to give it to her; that rant was coherent and even a bit funny – maybe the impact between her brain and some pointy rocks was just the jolt she needed to return to consciousness? And yet, it still lacks the substance we expect from a fully functioning person, which Palin seems to never have actually been.

Poor Palin.
