A Brief Lesson in Sarah Palinese

Finally, we rise to the defense of a dumbbell.

We like Sarah Palin; we don’t know what she is talking about. But she is the only candidate we can’t make fun of it for.

Consider this. You will find it hard to follow. Because it is not in English; it is in Palinese:

“That’s what I say that I like every American I am speaking with we’re ill about this position that we been put in where it is taxpayers looking to bailout, but ultimately what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, um, helping the, oh, it’s got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and, and, putting it back on the right track; so health care reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans and trade… we have we got to see trade as an opportunity not as, a competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity, all of those things under the umbrella of job creation, this bailout is part of that…”

But just because the woman is a half-wit hardly disqualifies her from public office. The average county commissioner or governor is not much better. And at least one of America’s finest presidents was probably little smarter than a moron.

We refer to Warren Harding. He was one of the greatest of American chief executives. No one was ever sent to prison under the Harding Act. No gaudy office building in Washington is known as the Harding Building. And no monument we know of defaces the earth in his memory. He started no wars. He spent no more of the taxpayers’ money than his predecessors. And he never gave a lecture to the American public that anyone could make sense of.

Three cheers for Warren Harding! Three cheers for Sarah Palin!

The Warren Harding monument is in Marion, Ohio. Whether or not the ground under it is defaced I cannot say, but that’s where his monument is. FYI

McCain should have picked Paris Hilton. She’s a better actor who could have read the scripts as if it were her own ideas, and sounded half intelligent in the process.

If she’s a half-wit then i’m a half-wit (and a dumbell too!). And all my friends and neighbors are half-wits. And the big marshmallow guy that made us all, he must be a half wit too. Why does half-wit have a hyphen? Aw shucks, i don’t know! Let’s hear it for the half-wits and dumbbells, some of the greatest people that I will ever know!! In the meantime, some of us will be sitting around, waiting for all the smart people to come tell us what to do. Cause that’s what half-wits do I guess. Maybe pass out a little… Read more »

Ah, c’mon, Bill. Sarah is just brilliant in how she is able to weave into her response to just about any question the vital factors: taxes, reigning in spending, health care reform, bailout ( panacea of all economic ills), the economy, and of course, taxes.

In one fell swoop she is able to address all hurting points. Utterly ingenious!
