Palin Babbles About Filibuster Reform

Palin Babbles About Filibuster Reform November 27, 2013

Unlike most wingnuts, Sarah Palin isn’t being obviously hypocritical in her reaction to the Senate ending the filibuster for most nomination votes. Instead, she’s being completely incoherent. See if you can find anything remotely like a coherent thought in this jumble of nonsense:

“Doesn’t any president — Republican or Democrat — have the right to be able to name his team unless a nominee is just wildly outside the mainstream?” Wallace asked.

Palin insisted that the president had a lot of “pals” who were “wildly outside the mainstream” and wanted to help him “usher in an agenda to transform America.”

“As for this rule change that some people are calling the nuclear option under Senate rules, you know, I guarantee, this week, Thanksgiving Dinner, people sitting around their tables were not going to be talking about the president blessing this thwarting of a balance of power in Congress with new Senate rules,” she explained. “People are going to be talking about our failed big government policies that will bankrupt this country.”

“So, this distraction, this new talking point in the media and with Congress and with Senators and with the president blessing this action, it’s a distraction and it’s a lot of, you know, double standard and Democrat hypocrisy because just a few years ago they were so anti, anti-nuclear option.”

Palin added: “So, American people, they don’t care about distractions like that. They’re not in the inside baseball Senate rules stuff. They want government to be back on our side. They want it to get out of our lives… So, this new rule change, it stinks.”

It’s just gibberish, a big jumble of words that don’t belong together and don’t mean anything. If she had yelled “I like circus peanuts” it would have been just as relevant as a response to the question.
