Following Sarah Palin’s videotaped statement today, let there be no doubt about her total lack of seriousness — a character trait, in fact, that’s utterly dwarfed by her chronic inability to construct prepared, teleprompter-presented remarks without virtually choking on her own tongue.
Sarah Palin could have used her time to be a leader — to take the high road and talk about the heroes and the victims of this terrorist attack. She could have used the time to discuss responsible gun ownership. She could have taken the time to address her people and mitigate the anger and political hatred that’s bubbled up around this tragedy. Instead, she diminished the tragedy by conflating it with the attacks against her and her record of inflammatory statements.
And, along the same line, arguably the biggest gaffe of today’s narcissistic word salad was her use of the phrase "blood libel." So not only did she opt to whine about her critics on a day when real heroes and real victims will be memorialized, but she also compared the criticism and stress she’s endured throughout the last four days to thousands of years of anti-Semitic religious persecution endured by Jews.
This further shows how self-absorbed Sarah Palin really is - no matter what happens, it’s about Sarah. She didn’t mean anything by “blood libel” though, she loves Israel!
I hear this every single time it snows in Wyoming.
Way to go, party of conservatism. (I couldn’t even type that with a straight face.)
An apparent member of the birther movement seated in the gallery of the House of Representatives on Thursday interrupted a reading of the Constitution. The woman yelled out “Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!” as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) read the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution.
The woman screamed out from the House Gallery as Pallone read Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution, which reads that “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
This is what Fox News hath unleashed upon us. For fuck’s sake…
Son of a bitch…
-almost fell off my treadmill when I heard her say this.
What? How did she get 900?
Ok so let’s break this down… There are 640 acres in a mile. There are 600 miles of land. 600 * 640 = 384,000… 384,000 total acres / 1,000 acres a day = 384 days.
365 days in a year. So Sarah… You’ll just need 1 year and 19 days to complete this expedition of yours….
Maybe it was a hyperbole!
I think she meant metric years.
Don’t worry guys, she’s just using American math!
I just got two links in my Askhole telling me she may have been right, or close to right. Whatever the case, let’s say it did take more than 900 years, right?
Well it’s Sarah Palin, so she’d only do the first 450.
Miles and acres are not comparable units people. An acre is a measure of area, a mile is a measure of length (or distance). Now, if you said square miles you’d be on the right track. Of course either way, Ms Palin is pretty fucking wrong. It’s just that if she had said “600 square miles” she’d be slightly less wrong.
Alaska has a total of 663,368 sq. miles, what is she talking about? Where did the 600 miles come from? She’s right that it’s over 900 years but not when your units are 600 miles, that’s roughly the length from LA to SF and back. Driving, it takes me no more than 6-7 hours each way.
663,268 sq. miles*(640 acres/ 1 sq. mile)*(1 day/1,000 acres)*(1 year/ 365.25 days) = 1,162.2 years
I thought maybe she meant 600 miles across, but that can’t be right either, especially if you count the Aleutian Islands (which as former governor, she should). Even if that was what she meant, she then transitioned to acres anyway. So either way, she’s a total & complete fucking moron. Oh, and not to nitpick, but LA to SF is more like 400 miles.
Wait, Sarah Palin said something factually off-base that involved math? Be still my heart.
Glenn Beck warns of martial law and food riots. Seriously.
Read the comments if you want to lose faith in humanity.
And a good fucking Friday morning to you, too. Let’s see - dead body, armed robbery, and weight gain. Hooray Friday!
MommyJacking: Pearl Harbor Edition
UMMM. Wow. I know I’m supposed to mock the MommyJacker, but this submission came to me edited and has inspired a tangential joke:
Me: “Knock, knock.”
You: “Who’s there?”
You: “Orange who?”
Oh and Purple, you just won the Worst Side Note Award. Congrats! You can pick up your gift certificate to Chili’s right after I finish banging my head against a brick wall. Get some of those fried eggrolls when you go!

Son of a bitch. This explains everything.
Like facts. Facts are totes unamerican.
Really?! Because fucking flowers don’t require $250K to thrive over 18 years. They just need some water, dirt and sun. Plus, some of them are perennials and die back in the winter and fall. If you’re raising kids like flowers, someone needs to call Department of Family services on your ass.
Amazing. This explains so much!
Just when you thought Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Delaware, could do nothing further to top herself, she does.
At a Tuesday morning debate with her Democratic rival Chris Coons, she appeared to be aggressively ignorant of the fact that the First Amendment requires the separation of church and state.
Making matters worse, the audience was actually filled with people with presumably more than a passing familiarity with the Constitution: law professors and students.
"Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" O’Donnell asked him. When Coons responded that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O’Donnell asked: "You’re telling me that’s in the First Amendment?"
From NPR…my brain is literally broken. I know this is all over the place, but damn. It takes willful ignorance to pull this one off, kids.
