I can't believe people take her seriously. simply put, she has that special kind of stupid. the deer caught in the headlights obliviousness.
best quote from that was "not all our programming is fear based" lol. good point there. scaremongering has got to be at the bottom tier of political tactics. works well on religious people who love guns though.
Many people really like that about her. They feel like she is simple, unsophisticated, somewhat ignorant, say-it-like-you-mean-it, salt of the earth, and out-of-the-loop. I think a faction of Americans want that kind of (you say stupid, they might say unpolitical) kind of person in politics. Maybe they are frustrated with the nature of politics (the deals, the sausage making) and want someone who literally doesn't have a clue in office so that government a fresh start. I think that's a big theme of the teabaggers.
This is not new. To some degree, I think that's what got Jimmy Carter elected (the Georgia outsider) in reaction to Watergate and the political maneuvering associated with the Vietnam War and the Great Society of the 1960s. Carter was a good man (in my opinion), but he was rather "caught in the headlights" with his presidency. That laid the ground work for a Reagan to come in with a get things done agenda four years later.
Isn't it more the case that she is deeply stupid and her supporters are also deeply stupid?
Sticks and stone will break my bones but names will never hurt me.
that was pretty good! and i'm not too into new SNL
True, but her own vapidity sure will hurt her (in the polls).
I tell my kids, what makes stuff funny is when it speaks the truth and Tina Fey was spot on.
One of my favorite lines:
"Not all of our programming is Fear Based!"
Palin is the punchline to a joke which her followers will never understand.
That leaves the rest of us to point and laugh.
"They feel like she is simple".......................I'll buy that, xyz.
Yes. If you are unsophisticated, you can't realize that someone else is also.
Brings a new definition to idiot box.
As Kurt Vonnegut writes in The Sirens of Titan: The big problem with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to realize there's such a thing as being smart.
My favorite part: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. LOL!
I'm so gonna watch "Elites" and "Tea Party Wheel Of Fortune". LOL!!!!
I love her. She's better than the rest. Best in the West.
She's now the 'head' of the new Tee Tee and Poop party
