By now the poorest peasant in Farawayistan knows that Sarah Palin wrote crib notes on her hand for her speech to the fanatically uninformed and hate-filled right wing of the right wing of the Republican Party.
Perhaps The Lion should rephrase that last bit.
A pathetically retarded Sarah Palin scribbled the fundamental tenets of her political philosophy on her hand so she wouldn’t forget them when she addressed the dominant element of the Republican Party over the weekend at the Tea Party Convention.
The fact that this woman can’t answer an unscripted question without babbling only slightly more intelligently than a severely retarded child somehow qualifies her for high office suggests the sickening depths to which American politics has fallen. That she is a Republican and that the Republicans have taken us to those depths is not surprising.
She is a master of the sound bite and little else, putting her on a par with the Republicans, who have mastered only one sound, the sound of ‘No!’
The comics and the faux news boys have nailed her for her handwriting stunt, satirizing her apparent inability to remember the basic ideas she loudly claims she stands for. She’s been speechifying (and stultifying anyone with at least three working brain neurons) since the campaign of 2008, spewing the same old crap, but she has to write it on her hand to remember it.
And she’s been slamming Mr. Obama the whole time.
And yet, when Robert Gibbs, Presidential Press Secretary, parodied her in yesterday’s press briefing by reading a shopping list printed on his palm, he created a minor storm in the ever moralistic press corps (the same press corps that brought us that ever-so-moral war in Iraq).
This morning, CNN’s T. J. Holmes and that dumbass conservative Joe Scarborough over at MSNBC just couldn’t get enough of listening to themselves profoundly moralize over Gibbs’ attack on bipartisanship. (Which raises the ancillary question of how people that stupid get jobs anchoring news shows on major news networks?)
Apparently, according to their faux thinking, it’s okay for Sarah Palin and the Republicans to engage in rabid partisanship that has brought the country political paralysis and threatens to spin off into violence, but it’s not okay for anyone in the Obama Administration to poke fun at the complete lack of credibility, at the sheer stupidity, of someone like Sarah Palin: The Lion uses the term ‘like’ advisedly to include the entire leadership of the Republican Party and most of its membership.
The Republicans have been rabidly, foaming-at-the-mouth partisan ever since the black guy won the White House. They have refused every attempt by the Administration to work together. They have lied. They have backstabbed. They have twisted, distorted, and demeaned everything the Administration has done, while offering absolutely nothing substantive.
So where do the fucking retards on CNN and MSNBC get off calling Robert Gibbs’ parody of that dangerous fool, Sarah Palin, an affront to bipartisanship?
If American democracy goes down the tubes it will be due in no small part to clowns like T. J. Holmes, Joe Scarborough and his partner in vapidity, Mika Brzezinski, and the mad dog partisanship of the Republican Party, led by mouth-foamers John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Michael Steele as they worship at the knees of a brain-dead Sarah Palin.
