Whoa Sarah!

Those sled-marks running up and down Mitt Romney's expensive suit - three guesses as to how the sons a' bitches got there. And, no, folks, the first two guesses DO NOT COUNT!

As much the idiot collective still runs to her every time she farts there will come a time the only way she will get attention will require a Playboy photo spread.

The "idiot collective" - I like that. In fact, I wish I'd thought of it.

Voltron said...

I agree, seems like every time she shows up somewhere the "idiot collective" media try to smear her.

Good thing intelligent folks like her.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Ms. Palin is very lucky in one respect, Volt- the shrillness, meanness, and depravity of some of her critics; Olbermann, the Daily Kos, etc..

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed." --Sarah Palin, botching the history of Paul Revere's midnight ride, June 3, 2011

Voltron I'd call you a moron again but that would be an insult to them. I hope you have enough basic knowledge of American history to know how badly your precious trailer trash screwed up something first grader learn.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I'll take American history for 500, Alex, she clearly is not.

The CDM said...

They aren't they "idiot collective media", they are simply people that swarm anything that bleeds. Palin hemorrhages idiocy, so...

Thank God for agents and "staffers", I guess.

Voltron said...

Actually BB, NPR disagrees with your "First Grade" assessment.

I would call you a moron in return, But I take pity on the fact that you've bought hook, line and sinker the liberal pablum that the public education system instills in those with weaker minds.

Voltron said...

Prof. ALLISON: Well, he was - he also was a bell ringer. That is, he rang the bells at Old North Church as a boy. But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.

And by this time, of course, the various town committees of safety, militia knew what the signals were, so they knew something was afoot. So this is no longer a secret operation for the British.

Revere isn't trying to alert the British, but he is trying to warn them. And in April of 1775, no one was talking about independence. We're still part of the British Empire. We're trying to save it. So this is a warning to the British Empire what will happen if you provoke Americans.

BLOCK:Sarah Palin also was saying there that Paul Revere's message to the British in his warning was: You're not going to take American arms - you know, basically a Second Amendment argument, even though the Second Amendment didn't exist then.

Prof. ALLISON: Yeah. She was making a Second Amendment case. But in fact, the British were going out to Concord to seize colonists' arms, the weapons that the Massachusetts Provincial Congress was stockpiling there.

So, yeah, she is right in that.
I mean, she may be pushing it too far to say this is a Second Amendment case. Of course, neither the Second Amendment nor the Constitution was in anyone's mind at the time. But the British objective was to get the arms that were stockpiled in Concord.

BLOCK: So you think basically, on the whole, Sarah Palin got her history right.

Prof. ALLISON: Well, yeah, she did. And remember, she is a politician. She's not an historian.

Voltron said...

Your apology is accepted BB.

w-dervish said...

Voltron, you bolded the wrong parts. These are the key sentences...

Palin: ...he is riding his horse through town, to send those warning shots and bells.

Allison: he's not firing warning shots. [He] is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells.

Palin: ...he who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms.

Allison: She was making a Second Amendment case.

Me: Sarah Palin says Paul Revere warned the British not to violate our second amendment rights? When the second amendment didn't exist? Beach Bum shouldn't apologize. He has no cause to.

Interviewer: you're being entirely too charitable towards Sarah Palin... [when Allison says SP on the whole got her history right].

Me: Indeed.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

No disrespect to Ms. Palin, Volt, but I suspect that any truth that she came upon, she probably stumbled upon it, and that if you asked her the same question now, she'd probably come up with a totally different answer.
