Conservatives Want to FIRE John Boehner and Replace Him With SARAH PALIN [View all]

A number of conservatives are so outraged with John Boehner over the fiscal cliff deal are seriously pushing to fire the Speaker and replace him with Sarah Palin.

Here are some of the tweets as rounded up by Politifreak:

Sarah Palin for House Speaker! (Technically, one need not be a member of Congress to serve as speaker.)—

Indeed. According to Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, the House Speaker does not necessarily need to be a member of the House.

Hey, let’s elect a new Speaker from outside the House | If not Allen West, ask Sarah Palin or Newt hotair.com/archives/2012/… via @hotairblog—

@ProSarah @C4Palin Palin for Speaker. Wouldn't that piss of the Dems? LOL—
Thomas Nickelsen (@tnickelsen) December 27, 2012

@newtgingrich or @SarahPalinUSA or Allen West need to be nominated for Speaker of the House.—

@SarahPalinUSA for speaker“@lheal: If we are going to give the Socialists what they want anyway,who is Speaker doesn't matter. #FireBoehner”—

Yes, because Boehner fights like a girl, and not in a good way @SmallgGay MT @sohali2012: Speaker of the House Sarah Palin? Hey, Why Not!—

Cantor is a RINO. Palin as Speaker would cut thru the doublespeak, message well & garner enough attention. Plus, a great negotiator.—

I can help them out with that one. Here is what Obama’s face would probably look like if Palin became speaker:

Conservatives think that the problem with the House is John Boehner, who also happens to be the last shred of common sense remaining in the House GOP leadership. Conservatives answer to the problem of a House majority that has been rendered irrelevant through their extremism is to get rid of the sane guy, and replace him with Sarah Palin.

The idea of Palin as Speaker of the House is hysterical considering that she seems to have no idea how the House even works, and she appears to no longer even bother with watching the news. (Come to think of it, Palin might be the perfect Speaker for these House Republicans.)

Sarah Palin as House Speaker would delight Democrats, because it would virtually guarantee a Democratic retaking of the House in 2014. There is no way that Republicans could hang on to their majority in with one of the least popular D-list celebrities in America as the face of the House. Conservatives don’t seem to get the fact that they might have gotten a deal that included some spending cuts if they hadn’t kneecapped John Boehner’s Plan B vote. House Republicans took away the tiny bit of negotiating position that they had, and then blamed Boehner for passing a deal that gave Obama virtually everything that he wanted.
