Quote of the Month


"Oh, Lord. Oh, Lord — what are we just a bunch of numbskulls out here in the heartland of America?"

-- Sarah Palin, last night on Hannity

It's just too easy. Anyone? Anyone wanna step up on this?

Yes.

I'll have to go with a firm "yes" on this one.

brettskean said...

Sarah is an expert on the heartland of America, she can see it from her house. . .

I would ask someone to explain to me why this gas-bag is still getting air time, but then I realized she was on Hannity. . .

MJG said...

And you're repetitive, too!

Nick said...

Since when is Alaska the heartland of America? Holy fuck...

IrishGirl said...

MmmmmmmmmmmKay.......Yeah.

And WTF is up with her hair?! Is it morphing into a mullet? It looks bizarre. Also too, doesn't she have a ton of make up, more than usual?

Steven D Skelton said...

Yeah....it's just like fucking Red State and Deliverance the entire way from L.A. to N.Y.

I'd have more to say but I have to go handle some snakes and then fuck my cousin.

Ursula said...

If there is only one wish I could have fulfilled before my death, it would be: see Michelle Obama punch Sarah Palin in the mouth.

I’m really not a violent person, but this? this I’d pay to see.

Stephen said...

Newt is totally going to do her.

Chez said...

Wear a condom, Skelton.

Stephen said...

Blazo...and I don't do Alaskans. They're too gamey.

JohnF said...

Is anyone still buying into this minstrel show? What a complete suck-up.
"Hey maybe if I talk about 'heartland' and say 'gosh' a lot these rednecks will forget that I'm from Alaska (right next to Canada!) and earn all my money these days making reality TV shows in commie-liberal Hollywood!"

I dislike Sarah Palin as much as anyone, but do we need to comment on the hairstyle, make up and fashion choices of the female political class?

Maybe I'm just an asshole, but I think it's a little condescending and disrespectful.

Ursala, add a Jello pit and bikini's and you got some pay per view quality material there...

To quote an overwhelmed Chandler in an episode of Friends, "Too … many … jokes! Must … mock … Joey!"

What a numbskull.

(Word Verification: ectivent. Sounds like a prescription pharmaceutical, dunnit? "Ask your doctor if Ectivent is right for you. Side effects include bad taste, hair loss and ingrown toenails. Contact your healthcare provider if sudden death occurs." I'll stop now.)

Skelton,

Appearances mean something. How someone grooms him/herself can tell you a lot about the person. In this case, that Palin thought she was on the 700 Club. In Romney's case, that he was made in a lab somewhere.

On the flip side, that's the reason that Obama has a crew cut. If he had, say, a flat top, we'd all take him about as seriously as we take Palin.

Jadine said...

Agree with medic8r.

Skelton,

At what point did Sarah Palin earn respect?

She looks like an overaged 80's prom queen that spews word diarrhea whenever there is a mic in front of her face.

Ref said...

Skelton, you have a valid point. However, when a woman in politics makes so much hay, knowingly, out of her looks, the fantasy lives of right-wing pundits, and the hidden desire of so many wingnut voters to be spanked by a Sunday school teacher, I say her looks are fair game.

QuadCityPat said...

As someone who lives in the Quad Cities on the Iowa/Illinois border, I am fucking offended that she continually speaks "for the heartland".

I realize she is a simpering twit, but ALASKA is considered the great northwest, NOT the heartland.

Fucktwit.

You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.

What Ursula, Jadine, and Irish Girl said.

Also.too. When I viewed the video of her ridiculous, down-home comedy routine wherein she once again attempted to stick a knife in the First Lady, I was so damn enraged, if that woman had been in front of me, I would have happily, earnestly, and stridently, punched her arrogant ass in the damn face, shirley temple curls and all.

Damn. I hate that miserable hag.

Perhaps Piper made a birthday wish that her mom would tell the truth for a whole day.

All of the argument over Palin aside, the people here in the heartland generally *are* numbskulls.

You find plenty of people who seem like normal, level-headed, intelligent individuals, particularly when talking within the scope of their professions. But, as soon as something prompts them to hit upon a Republican talking point, you get peppered with stupid shit like "I think same-sex marriage should be stopped because gay people give you cancer".

And the Lord didst come down from on high and said: "YEA VERILY."

Fuck this "the evil coastal liberal socialists think everyone who isn't one of them is stupid" shit. Pundits/politicians: I don't think everyone in the Heartland© is stupid, I think you are stupid or at least spew some particularly idiotic ideas a lot of the time. It's not the same thing.

And shit, I'm from Pittsburgh which isn't even particularly East Coast. Real America? Turns out it's made up of all the states in America, including those scary-ass cities.

@dick_gozinia: Blazing Saddles! Nice!

That scene pretty accurately describes our current political climate. In fact I've often wondered if Obama and Axelord have had that exact conversation. Hahaha.

namron said...

Sarah Palin is a fuckstick. We know that. Fox is Pravda. We know that. One of the factors contributing to twits controlling a significant portion of the mechanism of government is the left's condescendsion towards anyone not from the northeast or the west coast. The "heartland" gets that the east and the west are way cooler places to be. Residency west of the Hudson, south of Lake Michigan or east of Vegas does automatically qualify one for GOP membership. Presence in New York, LA, or Chicago does not vest intelligence. Make your best case, call out the individual dumb-asses, and leave geography out of it.

IrishGirl said...

Skelton, she trades on her looks so she gets judged on them. If she only presented herself as an intellectual she could wear a hairshirt and birkenstocks and I wouldn't say boo about it. Ultimately she is all artifice and so I critique her as such. Thanks to all the others who backed me up on this point.
