Why is Repugnican Sarah Palin-Quayle still speaking?
(That’s mostly rhetorical, but I’ll answer it anyway: Because she actually believes that she’ll be president one day.)
Reports Politico today:
Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) believes that the media deliberately tried to bring her down during her vice presidential run.
As part of an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for his new film out this week, Palin said she believes the media made a decision that “we’re going to seek and we’re going to destroy this candidacy of Sarah Palin’s because of what it is that she represents.”
“Obviously something big took place in the media,” she added. It is “very frightening, I think, what the media was able to get away with, this go around.”
Palin suggested that unbalanced media coverage posed a threat to democracy.
“This is for the sake of our democracy that there is fairness in this other branch of government, if you will, called the media,” she said. “It is foreign to me the way some in the mainstream media are thinking.”
“There have been lies told, there have been reputations trashed, there have been children that have been harmed,” she continued.
Looking back on her interview with ABC News’ Charles Gibson, in which Palin seemed unsure of how to define the Bush doctrine, the Alaska governor said she was disrespected in a way that another candidate would not have been.
“I’d have to say there would be much more respect shown to the subject, yes,” she said.
The media had the audacity to — gasp! — ask Sarah “One Heartbeat Away” Palin-Quayle questions! Questions that she could not answer!
How unfair! What a conspiracy!
The problem, you see, is not that Palin-Quayle cannot answer even rather simple civics questions, such as what the “Bush doctrine” is (the “Bush doctrine,” by the way, can be summed up as “might makes right”), yet believes that she is qualified to be president; the problem, clearly, is a vast left-wing conspiracy!
Yes, the very same corporately controlled mainstream media that acted as blind cheerleaders rather than as critical, analytical, investigative journalists for the unelected Bush regime’s illegal, immoral, unprovoked and unjust Vietraq War are out to get Sarah Palin-Quayle!
And when Palin-Quayle asserts that the media were out to “destroy” her candidacy “because of what it is that she represents,” what else could she be talking about except God and Jesus and love and light and puppies and kittens?
Yup; an attack on Sarah Palin-Quayle = an attack on God and Jesus (and puppies and kittens, too)!
Hey, I have a running mate for Palin-Quayle for 2012: Jesus! Yes: Palin-Quayle-Jesus Christ 2012! Get your T-shirts and bumper stickers now!
Shit, Palin-Quayle even ridiculously asserts that “children … have been harmed.” So she’s even using children as human shields, politically speaking. Nice!
In further seriousness, Palin-Quayle’s comments about the media are indicative of the “Christo”fascism that she would try to impose on the nation should she actually manage to attain higher office.
Statements of hers such as that it is “very frightening, I think, what the media was able to get away with, this go around,” certainly indicate that Palin-Quayle is no friend of the First Amendment — she did, after all, as mayor of Podunk, Alaska, fire the village’s librarian because the librarian refused to ban books, as Palin-Quayle wanted her to do.
We of the supposed vast left-wing conspiracy need to nip Palin-Quayle’s 2012 candidacy in the bud.
Yes, we should destroy her 2012 candidacy for what it represents: “Christo”fascism.
If she would silence the members of the media whom she believes aren’t giving her only the flattering coverage that the former beauty-queen-pageant contestant deserves, where would she stop in silencing her detractors?
And in dealing not only with Palin-Quayle but also with the rest of the remants of the “permanent Repugnican majority” (ha ha ha!), we progressives need to employ all of the tactics that the wingnuts have used on us progressives for the past several years, including refusing to allow them a significant voice in the U.S. Congress, as the Repugnicans stunningly absolutely refused the Democrats a voice in the U.S. Congress when the Democrats were in the minority.
The motherfuckers need a taste of their own God-damned medicine.*
*For instance, wingnut Bill O’Reilly loves to cut the microphone of progressive dissenters who actually have very good points to make; he cuts their mikes, in fact, because they have such good points to make.
So I have no problem whatsover cutting the microphone, so to speak, of the wingnuts who think that they can use the comments function of my blog to spew forth their right-wing garbage that is full of misinformation, half-truths and flat-out, bold-faced lies and reasoning that is twisted like a pretzel that George W. Bush would choke on.
Get used to it, wingnut bitches. Payback is hell.
