There is so much stupidity coming down the Palin pipe, I’m numb.
Sarah Palin was asked by Barbara Walters whether President Obama was lying when he stated that death panels were not in the health care bill. Her unbelievably idiotic response…
“He’s not lying, in the sense that those two words will not be found in any of those thousands of pages of the different variations of the health care bill…No, death panel isn’t there. But he’s incorrect. It’s kind of what Reagan used to do though when he used to talk about, say, the Evil Empire. You’re never going to find ‘The Evil Empire’ on a map of the world. He talked about that in terms that people could understand…Now, had he been criticized and mocked and condemned for using a term that wasn’t actually there on a map or in documents, we probably would have never succeeded in quashing the Evil Empire and winning that.”
Wow. Where to start?
Palin thinks use of the words “evil empire” made it possible to win the Cold War. That’s insane. The Soviets collapsed because they ran a corrupt system based on a misguided ideology, not because of an American catchphrase.
I can think of plenty of politicians who are genuinely, unambiguously dumb. I’ve even met a few, and marveled at how they were able to attain any kind of political responsibilities, given their limited intellectual prowess. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen a politician as conspicuously unintelligent as Sarah Palin gain national prominence. She represents the very worst American politics has to offer, and the embarrassment she brings to the political system is severe.
…for those wondering why the media likes to mock Palin, the answer is that we will stop insulting her intelligence when she stops insulting ours.
Actually, yes you could find the Soviet Union on the map. In fact, you can allegedly see the remnants from your goddamned house. I think I need a drink.
This is the most exasperatingly stupid woman on the planet.
Gotta love Palin week.
