Goofing on Sarah

I hope you got to peep the first installment of the Charlie Gibson interview with this snowbilly David. She is SOOOOOO out of her depth, it's not even funny. I mean, even cooter and bubba are going to be embarrassed about how stoopid and ignant this heffa sounds. There's no need to lampoon her anymore. Just use the words coming out of her mouth and it's already game over. I can't wait to see the viral explosion that will ensue in the aftermath of this debacle.

GIBSON: Do you agree with the Bush doctrine? PALIN: In what respect, Charlie? GIBSON: The Bush -- well, what do you -- what do you interpret it to be? PALIN: His world view. GIBSON: No, the Bush doctrine, enunciated September 2002, before the Iraq war. PALIN: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership, and that's the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better. GIBSON: The Bush doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense, that we have the right to a preemptive strike against any other country that we think is going to attack us. Do you agree with that?

PALIN: Charlie, if there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people, we have every right to defend our country. In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend.

GIBSON: Do we have the right to be making cross-border attacks into Pakistan from Afghanistan, with or without the approval of the Pakistani government?

PALIN: Now, as for our right to invade, we're going to work with these countries, building new relationships, working with existing allies, but forging new, also, in order to, Charlie, get to a point in this world where war is not going to be a first option. In fact, war has got to be, a military strike, a last option.

GIBSON: But, Governor, I'm asking you: We have the right, in your mind, to go across the border with or without the approval of the Pakistani government.

PALIN: In order to stop Islamic extremists, those terrorists who would seek to destroy America and our allies, we must do whatever it takes and we must not blink, Charlie, in making those tough decisions of where we go and even who we target.

GIBSON: And let me finish with this. I got lost in a blizzard of words there. Is that a yes? That you think we have the right to go across the border with or without the approval of the Pakistani government, to go after terrorists who are in the Waziristan area?

PALIN: I believe that America has to exercise all options in order to stop the terrorists who are hell bent on destroying America and our allies. We have got to have all options out there on the table.

Thanks for the heads-up, Craig. But seeing that you understood the Palin Effect from jumpstreet -- that it's basically not about her, but about a huge swath of white people who simply don't want a black president (no matter how intelligent he is, no matter that he was raised by white people, no matter that he doesn't have the family history of slavery and the associated resentments) -- do you really think this interview will turn her off to the people who so readily embraced her as "one of us"?

David, seriously, you have to see this shit to believe it. It just doesn't get any more pathetic than this.

I'm with cnulan; she made parodies of her look like documentaries.

Okay, apparently I need some plug-in for my QT for it to work, but when I click to go get it, I get a site with a bunch of choices and I have no idea which one of the downloads I need. Ugh. I got the Gina Gershon vid--what are the other parodies?

BTW, Obama needs to muzzle Biden for a bit. Seriously, dude, asking a paraplegic to stand up? DUH.

After listening to a townhall type thing on NPR yesterday, I think that it's not just that Obama's Black but that there's this persistent belief among a certain type of voter that he's Muslim. I heard one woman insist that he was born a Muslim and that the only way you stop being one is to die. Yes, die.

On another show a guy called in with the same insistence about Obama's "true colors" and said that this country was getting too crowded and that some people (read: Muslims) might need to leave. Not sure if the leaving would be voluntary.

I know someone who is a Black evangelical type and they have the same problem with this supposed "truth" that Obama really is a Muslim. It really makes me wonder if evangelical churches are putting out this propaganda. If so, there's no beating it because these people believe that what they hear in church comes from God and cannot be wrong.

Not denigrating anyone's religion but it's scary that a country founded on the desire for religious freedom is now at a point where religious bigotry may decide an election and the survival of the country.
