I don’t know whether it could be called “presidential” to respond to a vague attack from former vice-presidential candidate and current lifestyle brand Sarah Palin, but who am I to judge?

On Saturday afternoon, Palin posted a Facebook status that was ultimately a call for “those who still identify as democrats [sic]” to enjoy the “newfound sweet freedom” of registering independent. It began with a string of insults for Martin O’Malley.

“Yet another anti-freedom politician jumps in the race today for POTUS,” she wrote. “As cool as he is with his rock ‘n roll persona, this typical liberal’s erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights merely continues the strange and disastrous agenda of Barack Obama. Good to know he doesn’t have much chance of winning. The democrats have greased the skids for their chosen one, despite the media games that play the public with various ‘competing’ campaigns used for gamey distractions.”

Hey, at least she conceded that his “rock ‘n roll persona” is “cool.” Right?

O’Malley (or one his aides?) shot back on Twitter:

The burn drew praise from the Huffington Post’s Sam Levine, who declared O’Malley’s “troll game” to be “on point.” Me, I think the tweet, as terse and cool as it is, makes O’Malley look more like part of the sideshow than like a serious presidential candidate.

  1. O’Malley looks more like part of the sideshow because he IS a sideshow. I’m sorry, not even a sideshow; more a part of a sideshow as was said originally. He is a pandering, knee-jerking, grandstanding fool who will do and say anything to keep any limelight on him. I wish him luck. All bad. Oh, and by the way, I am a Democrat. Always was.

  2. Do not be misled. O’Malley is largely responsible for the problems in Baltimore as he initiated aggressive policing of inner-city neighborhoods when he was Mayor, stopping people “walking while black.” Then as Governor, he dramatically increased state spending and raised every tax you can imagine – sales, income, and dozens of fees and tolls. At the end of his second term, his hand-picked successor, his Lieutenant Governor, lost to a Republican in a state with a 2-to-1 Democratic advantage.
