I am not sure why the lefties have once again made the lovely Sarah Palin a big time target for personal hits again … but so be it. Much is being made of Sarah’s gaffe on Becky’s show. It wasn’t much of a gaffe as you will see. But it has left them open to a very special holiday rerun of the “One’s” most memorable moments, which I have conveniently compiled for you all. Read on my little mobsters. Read on.
First the Palin gaffe. Speaking with Glenn Beck this week Palin was explaining why America needs to stand strong with South Korea as it faces an ever crazier (Is that possible?) North Korea, after it’s wild shelling of South Korea.
On Glenn Beck’s show earlier today, Sarah Palin accidentally said North Korea when she meant South Korea:
CO-HOST: How would you handle a situation like the one that just developed in North Korea? […]
PALIN: But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies. We’re bound to by treaty –
CO-HOST: South Korean.
PALIN: Eh, Yeah. And we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.
As John McCormack points out in the article, there is nothing wrong fair criticism when Palin clearly shows a lack of understanding of an issue. But this is not one of those moments. Still, Sarah has shown she will not stand by and let this kind of criticism stand without fighting back, and she did yesterday on her Facebook page.
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…
Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.
Hot Air has a great round up of the entire dust up plus a link to the audio. But, I have decided to help Governor Palin a bit by assembling the “hits” she links to above. Enjoy.
OK, maybe I misstated it a bit myself. Of course the left is going after Sarah. Her name continues to show strong when it comes to Presidential polls. But if this woman is such an easy defeat for Obama, why would they not be encouraging her instead of whacking her. Maybe because they know where her “goat” lives?
I may be missing something, but I think they think she can win. Or am I wrong.
One more thing. This isn’t the only item the left is going after her for. Her fish clubbing incident is all the rage too. Too Much.
Stop making me feel sorry for the Palins!
The story which caught my attention had one of the more provocative titles I’d seen all week. Sarah Palin clubs to death a fish on reality show labelled ‘a snuff video’ by animal rights group. (And really, guys, couldn’t you spell check the title?)
Sarah Palin is under fire for clubbing a fish to death on her new reality TV show.
The Tea Party darling and her daughter Bristol, 20, were shown on a halibut fishing trip filmed for her new programme, Sarah Palin’s Alaska.
After catching a fish, Sarah is seen beating it with a club and Bristol later holds its still-beating heart in her hand, a sight Sarah called ‘weird’.
But then again, they went after her for carrying her shotgun incorrectly, remember?
Read the old post … but no, she’s not carrying it incorrectly. I just want to know what model it is.
