Someone needs to explain to Sarah why she has a tailbone.
New York Times reviewer Michiko Kakutani writes:
Elsewhere in this volume, she talks about creationism, saying she “didn’t believe in the theory that human beings – thinking, loving beings – originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea” or from “monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees.” In everything that happens to her, from meeting Todd to her selection by Mr. McCain for the Republican ticket, she sees the hand of God: “My life is in His hands. I encourage readers to do what I did many years ago, invite Him in to take over.”
Wow. Just, wow.
More below the fold.
At MediaMatters.org there is a great list of fictional moosecrap that Sarah has pulled out of her fevered imagination, and the best part is it will live on for future reference, because unlike other brainfarts, she actually wrote a whole book of this garbage (with help, of course).
Some of the best stuff includes Sarah’s statement that she “I don’t like to here people complain” in a book that is, at best, 5 chapters of nothing but complaining.
Other Palinisms include the reality vacant claim that no other candidate” subjected to scrutiny “about their hair, makeup, or clothes”, because, as we all know, Sarah is the first and only woman to ever run for office in the executive branch.
But the fun part about Sarah’s adventures in writing (with help) is the effect it is having on other Republicans. The few who realize that she iis an Epic FAIL will soon be attacked by her devoted deadheads (no offense implied to Grateful Dead fans, I’m sure you get my point), and then they will attack back, and so on, until the purity parade and circular firing squad pushes all of the electabe candidates out of the fied, because there is no doubt that Sarah from Real America will be running for President in 2012, and doncha know, that is where she will really showcase her talents, such as wearing nice clothing, winking, and calling people ugly things while acting offended when she is attacked, but also . . .
Witness David Brooks calling saying “She’s a joke.” about good ole Sarah. I guarantee he finds a moose head in his bedsheets one day soon.
Wily David Brooks, super genius, thinks there is NO CHANCE that Republican primary voters will cast their votes for Sarah. For an expert, David doesn’t seem to know much about how crazy and dumb the last registered Republicans left are. Not only will Palin supporters vote for her in a primary, but they will be the worst attack dogs against any other GOP candidate who goes after her with criticism.
And that explains the whole “Evolution isn’t real” nonsense. No doubt Palin actually believes this, but, more importantly, it was certainly included in her book to appeal to the farthest edge of the right wing base. If Sarah isn’t running in 2012 she will certainly throw her weight around, and the reason she has that weight is because of her strong support in the Republiican party. Sarah isn’t a joke, the Republican party is. Only there can such bullcrap like denying evolution actually help you in a Presidential primary instead of disqualifying you automatically.
And to think, she wanted to be our President of the Senate. In a sane political party Sarah Palin wouldn’t be allowed near a microphone. In this one, she might be a king maker. Hell, she might be their Presidential candidate in 2012.
“Drill, baby, drill!”, but don’t try to explain to her where the oil came from, she wouldn’t believe you anyway.
