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.
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.
