Palin Spews Stupid on the Immigration Order

Sarah Palin got on her failing “TV” channel and tossed a predictable word salad about Obama’s executive order, making the same ridiculous partisan claim that if his party lost the election, the voters rejected each and every policy they might support. As if that’s really what determines the votes that swing an election.

In her incredibly annoying faux-folksy manner, she says Obama “is giving voters the middle finger.” Uh, no. The polls show that the public overwhelmingly supports the actions that Obama just announced. Just because Republicans won the Senate doesn’t mean that the public is opposed to every policy Obama supports. This is really basic logical reasoning, which is why Palin doesn’t understand it. Well, that and the fact that she really doesn’t care whether what she says is true or not, only that it supports her narrative. I challenge you to listen to this as long as you possibly can without pulling out a samurai sword and removing your intestines.

    Only if you assume that her narritive is coherent & not just random blather.

    Sounds more like sheer desperation…that and very little else!

    I don’t have a Samurai sword but didn’t click anyhow because I was reading while shaving. It may not actually be possible to slit one’s own throat with an electric razor, but why take the chance?

    Don’t worry, the White House had it laminated for easy cleaning before it went out the door.

    “Pass a law.”

    She’s not over having the American people repudiate her and her party and all their policies when they voted Obama into office. No wonder she raves as the lunatic she is.

    I think I remember research a couple of years ago, where even many Republicans supported Obama/Democrat postitions as long as they didn’t know they were Obama positions. I think it has long been the same with the ACA, even many of the people that think it is the wort thing ever support many of the provisions and would want to see them retained.

    Nice try Ed Brayton, but I know a sucker bet when I see one. (How did you even know I had a katana?

    Ok, you can be in the control group, where samuari swords are used. (Obviously not a blinded study, but its rather hard to make electric razors, chainsaws, and samuari swords indistinguishable.)

    While I HAVE been meaning to lose some weight, I’ll take a pass on this particular method.
