[Live event concluded.]
Here’s the half-governor of Alaska, with another of her wonderfully classless statements, lovingly crafted to appeal to the lowest common denominator of the right wing base: Sarah Palin: Barack Obama Known for ‘Mom Jeans’.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a man known for wrestling bears while President Barack Obama is known for wearing mom jeans.
“People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil,” Palin said to Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. “They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”
Sarah Palin is on a media tour to promote her silly book about a nonexistent “War on Christmas,” and today the blithering half-governor appeared on the Today show with a tasty new right wing word salad, achieving (not for the first time) total incoherence.
The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition, there’s less tort reform threat, there’s less, um, trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again. And what thwarts those plans, it’s the far left, it’s President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor patient relationship links to reform health care.
Uh, you know, when you stand in the middle of the road you’re gonna get hit on both sides of the road. We need to take a stand especially on this Obamacare, and support those who are just fulfilling their campaign promises, SO many politicians ran for reelection and for election saying they will do anything in their power to defund the status [sic] socialized medicine program called Obamacare. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, some of these guys actually were fulfilling their campaign promises and they asked for debate. That’s why they stood up, they took the stand, fought for us, to debate the issue of Obamacare.
Speaking of apologies, has John McCain ever apologized for bringing this absolute moron into the right wing limelight?
Megyn Kelly had Sarah Palin on her new show on Thursday night, and the interview went about as you would expect it to go. Our favorite part came in the first couple of minutes.
Kelly set Palin up nicely, asking her to comment on President Obama’s suggestion that the government shutdown had hurt American credibility in the world.
In response, Palin went on a free-association diatribe, an almost jazz-like improvisatory rant, riffing on just about everything under the sun. Here’s a sample:
“…And then locking up pipelines and resources that will result in us being more reliant on foreign imports for energy, and then of course he, having left behind, his administration having left behind our brave men in Benghazi to be murdered, and then of course there’s Syria, where he promised to bomb Syria because in that civil war, Syria was going to bomb Syria, and then we never heard another word again about his threat to bomb in a foreign civil war, and then of course…”
Possibly the crassest moment yet from the wingnut half-governor who was almost the Vice President of the US, but couldn’t keep a Fox News gig. And that’s really sayin’ something.
