Sarah Palin’s Word Salad of the Day: “It Will Be Surprising, and Yet Perhaps Not”

Half-wit half-governor weighs in
Wingnuts • Views: 19,638

All over the right wing universe, rage is the order of the day. I know, you’re asking, “What do you mean, Charles? Aren’t they always raging?”

Well, yes, but this particular ragefest has an extra ingredient: confusion and a dim sense of betrayal at Thad Cochran’s Mississippi primary win. Yes, Thad Cochran, a first class reactionary caveman in every way, is now not conservative enough for them.

And the idiot half-governor who nearly became Vice President is leading the marching morons down this confused and angry road, serving up another of her trademark incoherent word salads. It makes no sense, but it doesn’t have to; it’s the inchoate scream of terrified rage that’s important.

“Well, you know, as for the primary, and perhaps if it’s true, some shenanigans going on there, nothing should surprise you, but that’s old-school politics where it’s a bit of the status quo and that’s got to go.”

“It’s very rare in a Republican primary that the candidate who promises to bring home the bacon, promising bigger government, which is requiring higher taxes and more burdensome government actually pulls it off in the primary? That’s a rare thing,” Palin said. “So it’s — it will be surprising, and yet perhaps not, to find out what that cross-over of Democrat voters, how that does impact the general.”

“Well, if Republicans are going to act like Democrats, then what’s the use in getting all gung ho about getting Republicans in there?” Palin said. “So yeah, if Republicans aren’t going to stand strong on the planks in our platform, then it does no good to get all enthused about them anymore.”
