The Increasingly irrelevant Sarah Palin is Upset her own words are used against her in an Obama ad

March 13, 2012

While playing victim again, half-term Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, tries to gather a pity party on her Facebook page over, of all things, her own words being used against her.

The video is objectionable to Ms. Palin, quite like the movie Game Change (even before she saw it). Palin’s claim is that the words were taken out of context, but historically her claims are dubious. To get this straight, she’s claiming that her video was Breitbarted.

‘Gotcha’ Journalism’ was screeched from her lips after Katie Couric asked her which newspapers she reads. Oh the humanity! Palin set off the alarm screaming, ‘Lamestream media’ when anything she objected to was said about her. Thankfully, we have Google to research her own words.

Watch:

A snippet of her latest: 

Exhibit A in these diversionary tactics is an absurd new attack ad President Obama has released taking my comments out of context. I’m not running for any office, but I’m more than happy to accept the dubious honor of being Barack Obama’s “enemy of the week” if that includes the opportunity to debate him on the issues Americans are actually concerned about. (Remember when I said you don’t need a title to make a difference?)

This latest ad is quite odd, but also quite telling. It shows that our President sure seems fearful of discussing the economy, energy prices, and all the other problems people need addressed. And intended or not, now that his ad opens up the discussion of Barack Obama’s radical past associations and the radical philosophy that shaped his ideas about his promised “fundamental transformation” of our country, I welcome the media to join ordinary Americans in finally vetting Barack Obama. The media failed to do so in 2008 to the detriment of us all. Maybe this time around they can do their job.

Again she echoes right wing talking points in trying to discredit the deceased Professor Bell, and the President for being in his presence. Andrew Breitbart claimed to obtain that video which had already been released years earlier. When it exploded on the Internet, it was used for comedic value only. Face it, Breitbart didn’t depart this world with a roar, or even a whimper. He’s just gone.

Were Sarah Palin, the self-deemed feminist’s words taken out of context when she defended Rush Limbaugh over his 4 day onslaught of misogynistic rants against a Georgetown coed? We have an unBreitbarted video of that too.

    The phrase “increasingly irrelevant” is key here. Why did Obama’s campaign people bother? Unless they know something we don’t, e.g. that Sarah Palin would be a likely POTUS nominee of a brokered convention as an attempt to “defuse” women’s issues. It does seem increasingly possible that NOBODY will get to this year’s GOP national convention with a delegate majority, but wouldn’t the billionaires and power brokers in a “smoke-filled room” pick someone capable of speaking coherent English instead of Palin?

    When I received my first paycheck from my first job, I was told that the MORE YOU MAKE, the MORE YOU PAY IN TAXES.

    So, if somebody makes more in their pay, they should pay more in taxes, simple concept, even Sarah “Dumber” Palin can understand.

    Last time I looked, Obama is probably more White than most folks in this country.

    Palin just doesn’t like somebody that is more educated than her.

    I’ll be happy the day Sarah Palin (Caribou Barbie) disappears from the public spotlight forever.Considering her performance on some news interviews from 2008 forward,I’m of the opinion,and I know there is a lot of people who would agree with me,That Sarah”Screech” Palin couldn’t win a debate with a Zombie,let alone President Obama or even a 6th grader.

    I strongly believe, based on other examples of her writing that I’ve seen, that she did not write this particular Facebook message or at least had significant help. Her grammar is NEVER this consistently good. For example, she routinely messes up the difference between “then” and “than,” but here she doesn’t. At a bare minimum, someone is copy editing her messages. For her FACEBOOK page. What does she hope to achieve? Another invitation to run for VEEP?

    (By the way, I taught freshman composition on the college level for close to 20 years and learned early how to spot cheaters.)

      Oddly, I was just scrutinizing her Facebook page again. The first time I read it for this post, I thought it didn’t sound like her mutterings. So, I went back and read it again and now I’m certain she didn’t write it either.

    Why doesn’t this secessionist, divisive, religious fundamentalist, non-reading, ill informed, no class, undereducated, oil coporate whore STFU and get lost?
