Palin gaffes

 THE SAVAGING OF SARAH PALIN

” . . . sadomasochistic, anti-Palin orgy . . . “  * details below

_____________________

True, Palin made some embarrassing gaffes.

She complained that we didn’t have enough “Arabic translators” in Afghanistan — not realizing the natives don’t speak Arabic in Afghanistan, but rather a variety of regional dialects, the most common of which is Pashtun.

Speaking to military veterans one time, Palin said, “Our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today.”

She bragged about passing a law regulating the nuclear industry that it turned out never became a law at all.

Some days Palin said Venezuela’s dictator Hugo Chavez should suffer “regional isolation” — but then on others she’d say she supported the president’s meeting with Chavez.

She told one audience about recent tornados in Kansas that had killed 10,000 people. In fact, a dozen people were killed in the tornados.

She referred to the “57 states” that make up the U.S.

Speaking of her eldest daughter’s pregnancy, she said Bristol was being “punished” with a baby.

As you probably know — or guessed by now — none of these gaffes were uttered by Palin. They are all Obama gaffes. Luckily, he made them to a star-struck press that managed not to ask him a difficult question for two years.

PALIN ON MEDIA MALPRACTICE

____________

Camille Pagila in Salon*

“Liberal Democrats are going to wake up from their sadomasochistic, anti-Palin orgy with a very big hangover. The evil genie released during this sorry episode will not so easily go back into its bottle. A shocking level of irrational emotionalism and at times infantile rage was exposed at the heart of current Democratic ideology — contradicting Democratic core principles of compassion, tolerance and independent thought. One would have to look back to the Eisenhower 1950s for parallels to this grotesque lock-step parade of bourgeois provincialism, shallow groupthink and blind prejudice.”

    Palin was thrown into the political mess completely unprepared by the McCain team. She didn’t lose the election; McCain lost the election. I voted for him but, as I see it now, it is better that Messiah Obama won. He’ll be able to handle the stressful situations must better than McCain could possibly have done. McCain has not even given Palin credit for all of her efforts to help him during the election campaign. He could at least buy her $100,000 in clothes or whatever else she wants (he’s a multimillionaire). She made the election exciting; he was boring as hell. Hopefully we’ll see her in the senate in 2010. In the meantime, Obama can smoke his cigs in the oval room bathroom; that’s OK as he has a lot of problems to face.

      I agree. She was mishandled and mistreated and still she fired up the conservative base and overcome a ton of adversity, all of it revealing her superior class, intelligence, character and leadership ability. those who viciously denigrate her demonstrate their overwhelming fear, and their barbarism. Onward! Thanks for making comment!
