Irony Watch: Sarah Palin Calling Someone Else ‘Dumb’

Wingnuts desperately trying to make Gingrich’s disgusting behavior a plus

Friday is still young, but we already have our totally ridiculous Wingnut spin of the day, as Sarah Palin weighs in on Newt Gingrich’s serial affairs and divorces by calling the media “dumb arses.”

Poor conservatives, always being victimized.

“The American public could really care less about being Joe McGinniss’d, not when there are real issues,” Palin said. “Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife is getting ready to reveal all, again — she has already done that, it seems, like a few times.”

“The liberal media,” she added, “and some of that GOP holier-than-thou machine overplayed their hand this time.”

Palin said that Gingrich, who she identified this week as the candidate she would vote for in the South Carolina primary if eligible, would ultimately benefit from the media attack.

“I call them ‘dumb arses,’” she said. “They think by trotting out this old Gingrich divorce interview — that’s old news and it does feature this disgruntled ex- that claimed that it would destroy a campaign. All this does is, Sean, is incentivize conservatives and independents who are so sick of the politics of personal destruction because it’s played so selectively by the media.”

“Their target in this case, Newt,” Palin added, “is now going to soar even more because we know the game now and we just won’t put up with it. So you know, good call media. Way to go to covertly hype this, even with Gingrich opponents. For being so brilliant, they sure are dumb.”

That really says it all; Newt’s career will “soar even more” because he’s a serial philanderer, and the right wing just loves that kind of thing.

Wait. What?
