Not wishing to sear my eyeballs and raise my blood pressure, I did not watch yesterday’s “Hannity” on Fox News. And apparently I picked a particularly good day to do … Continue reading The war on Thanksgiving
I was enjoying my morning coffee, still in that comfy half-awake, pre-caffeinated state, easing into my day, sort of watching CNN because it’s a totally passive endeavor. And suddenly there was Sarah Palin’s shrill, irritating, clueless voice cutting through it all like a jagged knife. There she was filling my screen. And it wasn’t a fleeting sound bite; it was an entire speech. Nooo!! I couldn’t change the channel fast enough.
Why, CNN, why? She’s not a candidate. She’s nobody now, an irrelevant, egotistical, self-serving everyday citizen no more important than the rest of us, and not as bright as most of us. Why do you keep feeding her sick need for publicity? I’d have expected coverage of her speech from Fox News or the paparazzi, not CNN.
Come on, CNN. The media should be covering the party (political or otherwise), not the party crasher.
She Who Must Not Be Named (you know, the one from Alaska). who failed miserably the other day when answering a question about Paul Revere, defended herself this morning on Fox News. (She refuses to appear on any other network.)
It was another of those goshdarnit gotcha questions from the “lamestream” media, she explained, and went on to correct the record:
I didn’t mess up about Paul Revere. Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that ‘hey, you’re not going to take American arms, you are not going to beat our own well-armed persons individual private militia that we have.’
Whew, so glad she cleared that up. I was afraid for a while there that she might really be … you know ... stupid.
She never said she could see Russia from her house. Comedian Tina Fay said that. But Sarah Palin has said so many other dumb things that someone should, and probably has, compiled a book of them.
I swore I’d never again waste words on this woman. So I won’t. These are her words, about Paul Revere’s ride:
He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.
Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable.
