Quote of the Day


"I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue. I don't have a problem with that. I don't know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers. (It's like) that weird conspiracy theory freaky thing that people talk about that Trig isn't my real son, and a lot of people that went 'Well, you need to produce his birth certificate, you need to prove that he's your kid,' which we have done, but yeah, so maybe we can reverse that, and use the same thinking on the other one."

-- Sarah Palin, when asked by conservative talk radio host Rusty Humphries (and no, I'm not making that name up) whether she believes the legitimacy of Barack Obama's birth certificate should be an issue in the next presidential election

I swear, at this point it's like fishing with dynamite. It's that easy. You barely even have to do any work.

And it's just as dangerous...you never know when she'll blow up. You betcha!

At this point it is safe to say that no comedian or writer could parody her worse than she does it herself. I swear, the woman is like a random stupid generator!

It took me almost a minute to get through that quote. Just cannot read things that that woman says without stumbling and thinking that I read the words wrong, or that I am haveing an acid flashback.

I found this in the comments on politico. It pretty much sums up what I tell all my dipshit birther townsfolk.

"I was going to say something really crass about Governor Palin. But then I read the comments.... It is absolutely astounding that people really think that the President of the most powerful nation in the world - was able to fool the CIA, FBI, NSA, the Congress, the American Electorate and get elected. Ok - let me humor you. If he really was able to pull this one off - I want him to be my President - he is the smartest man alive. By the way - if the earth was really round then our levels wouldn't work - therefore the earth is flat! This is really really sad." Awsome.

"(It's like) that weird conspiracy theory freaky thing" - so eloquently stated Ms. Palin.

Seriously, enough of her already. She's grasping at straws so hard she has cuts on her hands. We need to go back to the days Roman empire when town retards were put out of their misery in Gladiator-style battles.

It's amusing to follow the stream-of-consciousness of her mind.

In passing, Chez, and not wanting to correct your fine writing, your "I swear, at this point it's like fishing with dynamite" doesn't even go far enough, IMO.

It's more like going to the pond or river armed with only a net, 'cause the fish are already supplying the dynamite.

Man, you got that right. I finally had to eliminate her from the running as the "'Tard of the Week" because I felt it was just too damn easy.

Is anyone really still trying to prove that Trig is not her son? I really haven't heard anyone bring that up since the election. Andrew Sullivan maybe, but even with him I don't think he's still harping on that point.

The big birther freak-out over Obama's birth certificate, however, continues unabated.

They look like words, but they seem to be placed in some random order - it's as if she's some kind of malfunctioning caribou fembot. Is this what the Republicans really did with the Star War's budget in the 80's?

Encountering this degree of intelligence and perceptiveness in the Age of Unapologetic Idiocy has given me serious wood. [Looking down at pants] Yup, I'm definitely sporting a Yule log.

From the Daily Beast - More on this...

Did Asians Scare Palin Out of Hawaii?
The Palin story of the day seems to be her semi-endorsment of the birther movement, but there's another question now being asked: Why did Sarah Palin leave Hawaii after one semester when she was an 18-year-old student? The New Republic draws attention to a startling passage from Sam Tanenhaus’s recent New Yorker review of Palin’s book: In Going Rogue, Palin says “Hawaii was a little too perfect. Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.” But Tanenhaus then flags another passage from Scott Conroy’s and Shushannah Walshe’s biography of Palin, in which Palin’s own father says she left because she was uncomfortable around Asians and Pacific Islanders: “They were a minority type thing,” her father says, “and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”

What a dad!

But wait, have we really seen Trig's birth certificate? HAVE WE??? Is it real?? Has it been verified by anyone other than Alaska??? Because Hawaii verified Obama's certificate, but that's not good enough. I won't take the state's word for it, and to be fair, Trig's needs to be double-verified too!!! This is TrigGate!

Hysterics exaggerated of course, but I would LOVE if Orly Taitz would start up some lawsuits against Nailin' Palin. Although, that much stupid colliding could knock the earth off it's axis.

I cannot believe any of you are putting Sarah Palin down. She is the most known republican woman ever. She almost made it to the White House, but now all she is trying to do is put food on the table, you think her husband can keep up with the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed.

And so what if she took two different planes back to Alaska from Dallas, Texas when she was in labor with Trig. I mean so what if Alaska Airlines spokesman said that they were not aware that she was in labor.

She is not a quitter, she is reloading, so watch out she will be your President, like it or not.
