One Last Word On Palin

Not to be an obnoxious winner, but I had to say one last word on the Palinator. Now that the campaign is over, the news media is revealing all sorts of juicy tidbits that were covered up. (Ironic given that the media is allegedly so liberal). In any event, according to the Huffington Post, some media outlets are now revealing that Governor Sarah Palin did not know that Africa is a continent. She thought it was a country. Moreover, Palin apparently did not know which countries were parties to the NORTH AMERICAN Free Trade Agreement. Boy did we dodge a bullet....

Reports are surfacing that Palin was indeed a diva--reducing her staff to tears after she interviewed poorly and her approval poll numbers started to slip. In addition, she allegedly spent much more than $150,000 on clothes--she spent additional thousands more on clothes for her husband and children. So much so that one McCain campaign aide described the Palins as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast.” Yikes! And these folks were all on the same team?

With that, I will leave you with some Palinisms to ponder, with a laugh and a sigh of relief.

  • "I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to you." --Sarah Palin, asked by Katie Couric to cite specific examples of how John McCain has pushed for more regulation in his 26 years in the Senate, CBS News interview, Sept. 24, 2008

  • "All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008

  • "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women." --Sarah Palin, misquoting former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, who said women should "help" other women," Carson, Calif., Oct. 4, 2008

  • "They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2008

  • "I like being here because it seems like here and in our last rally too -- other parts around this great Northwest -- here in New Hampshire you just get it." --Sarah Palin, Laconia, New Hampshire, Oct. 15, 2008

  • "I don't know if you're going to use the word 'terrorist' there." --Sarah Palin, asked if people who bomb abortion clinics are terrorists, NBC News interview, Oct. 23, 2008

  • "We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. ...We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in Greensoboro, N.C., Oct. 16, 2008

  • We realize that more and more Americans are starting to see the light there and understand the contrast. And we talk a lot about, OK, we’re confident that we’re going to win on Tuesday, so from there, the first 100 days, how are we going to kick in the plan that will get this economy back on the right track and really shore up the strategies that we need over in Iraq and Iran to win these wars?" --Sarah Palin, suggesting we are at war with Iran, FOX News interview, Nov. 1, 2008

  • "Ohh, good, thank you, yes." --Sarah Palin, after a notorious Canadian prank caller complimented her on the documentary about her life, Hustler's "Nailin Paylin," Nov. 1, 2008

Yep, she's an idiot. Sadly, I don't think we've seen the last of her though.
Every time she opens her mouth, she sets us back about 30 years. Before long, none of us will have access to birth control and we'll be wearing ankle-length skirts and long sleeve blouses with collars up to our chins.
I don't know about ya'll but I ain't going back.

You seem to imply there is something wrong if a babykilling abortion mill is burned or bomb. Which do you prefer, a pile of bricks or a pile of dead babies? Innocent unborn babies deserve to be protected just as born children deserve to be protected. You would have no problem protecting born children if they were about to be murdered.
SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

Wow Rev., I think you're the one who needs a little prayer.
I don't think it's the government's business what a woman does with her body.
It amazes me that some politicians are against a woman's right to choose abortion when they aren't going to feed or clothe an unwanted baby when they get here. They ship them off to foster families who only want the check, and make it hard for decent families - gay, straight or indifferent - to adopt kids, point to the parents after the kids have had to raise themselves and is quick to give them lethal injection when they do wrong.
I'm going to stop right there because I'm pretty sure you're cursing and blessing me in the same breath because I just called you and your counterparts on all of your hypocrisy.
While I'm sure everyone is welcome here at Chicas In the City, I'm pretty sure no one wants to hear your arguement about justified murder just because people work or go to a planned parenthood clinic.
I'm sorry ya'll, but I had to say it.
By the way, TravelDiva, I think we found our joker of the week for next week.
Now pray on that!

Well said Smarty!! And I think you're right.

Reverend, it is truly radical insane nuts like you who give Christianity a bad name. It is the height of hypocrisy that in your righteous indignation you think that it is acceptable to bomb abortion clinics and kill women, people working their, innocent bystanders walking by, etc. Who makes you judge, jury and executioner?

Frankly, I shouldn't have even responded to your brand of insanity, but felt compelled.

I don't see how she has so many admirers. I hope that she got on her dog sled and stays in Alaska.
