Sarah Palin Calls For Impeachment of Barack Obama, Twitter Doubles Over in Laughter

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

You Betcha

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:

  • Danny Zuker (@DannyZuker): @SarahPalinUSA calling for Obama's impeachment. Gotta hand it to her. The woman never quits! I mean except for jobs she was elected to do.
  • Steve Amiri (@SteveAmiri): Sarah Palin thinks we should impeach Obama and in her defense she thinks "impeach" means to turn a person into a peach and that's adorable.
  • CJ Werleman (@cjwerleman): Sarah Palin says, "Impeach Obama." 85% of her followers think that word involves a rope and a tree.
  • Twitnter is Coming (@OhNoSheTwitnt): Sarah Palin can impeach a United States president from her backyard.
  • LOLGOP (@LOLGOP): I STAND WITH SARAH PALIN. IT'S TIME TO IMPEACH OBAMA AND I BELIEVE IMPEACH IS FRENCH FOR DEPORT. #tcot
  • Daniel Aubry (@Aubs89): Oh please, Sarah Palin thinks impeach is a Snapple tea.
  • Scott Lundberg (@dslundberg): I think we should impeach @SarahPalinUSA ... oh wait, she quit and was rejected from elected office. #ShutUpSarah

This isn’t the only thing for which Palin has been in the news this week. She's been talked about as one of several possible replacements on The View.

For reals.

Since she quit her post in Alaska Palin hasn’t run for public office but still plays the part of politician who calls her constituents “fans.” What exactly does she do other than essentially proposition her self and image to the highest bidder? Sounds like Sarah is America’s highest paid escort! See how down and dirty she’ll get for the money at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot...

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
