Palin said, “I think if there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about NAFTA or about the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context, and that is cruel and mean-spirited, it’s immature, it’s unprofessional, and those guys are jerks.”
Two things come to mind here.
For one, the weird twisting of language here. Taken out of context? If you have any questions or comments about “continent versus the country” when you are talking about Africa then you don’t know it is a continent. People who already know this have no questions or comments about it. That is really all there is to it.
The other thing is that her complaining about people making negative allegations is hypocritical to the Nth degree. The minute you tell the world that someone is “paling around with terrorists” (note the plural) based on one flimsy association you give up the right of being indignant on anything but total fiction, which judging by her own comments, this is not.
I’d meant to post this when it first came out, but I got busy. I decided it was still worth posting as a reminder than this woman should not be in politics. There is no more room for misinformed, hateful, divisive people in politics. As Americans we need to take strong measures to try and keep as many of these folks out of the picture as possible.
PS. please note Palin also calls people “unprofessional” and “jerks” in the same sentence. I’ll say no more.
