Shoddy Internet

September 26, 2008

Bah! The internet at my apartment is about as reliable right not as congressional republicans (*crickets*)… but I’m dedicated to posting at least once a day. So here are the latest Sarah Palin interviews. As it turns out, mentioning Sarah Palin is like reader catnip, so… Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Moosefucking, lipstick, snowbilly, pig, Sarah Palin, Country first.

Note in this interview how Mrs. Palin is always looking down when she’s answering. One thing you learn when interviewing criminals — which I do from time to time at my job — is that when they look down, they don’t know the answer to your question and are totally bullshitting you. Not that that applies at all to this clip. Palin is totally on her shit when she babbles on about healthcare and polar bears or something.

Chuck Todd noted earlier today on NBC Nightly News that by limiting Sarah Palin’s interactions with the press, the McCain campaign has ensured that every one of her limited interactions with the press will be analyzed to death and that Palin will never get comfortable in that setting. So I beg Rick Davis and Co., please, keep her sequestered so we get terrible, terrible gems like these to… um… what’s the word Katie? Oh yes, mock. Mock, yeah. I guess that’s the word.

Sarah Palin Will Get Back to Katie Couric On Facts and Stuff

September 25, 2008

I almost feel bad for Sarah Palin in this clip. Defending McCain Campaign Manager Rick Davis — a man she most likely only met for the first time a couple weeks ago — and his well documented ties to morgage giants Fannie and Freddy Mac, she gets stumped on the facts by that sexist/elitist/secret Muslim Katie Couric. Oh, and Katie wasn’t done. Oh no. Trying to weasel her way out of a question about John McCain’s newfound status as Tha Regulator, Palin starts spewing some insignificant red-herring shit like “HUR DUR, JOHN MACKANE IS TEH MAVERICKS.” But Couric isn’t having it, cutting in with this delightful little exchange:

COURIC: I’m just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?

PALIN: I’ll… try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.

Smell that? That’s the smell of leadership, baby. Like a said, I almost feel bad for Palin. But then I think about how her position on abortion would turn this country into Nicaragua and that we’d probably have to read about her batshit-insane Young Earth Theory in our public schools’ science textbooks, and then all the sudden I don’t feel that bad for her. All the sudden, I hope someone holds this ratfucker’s feet to the fire until after election day… and then a couple days more just for good measure. 

If I were the McCain camp, I’d keep Palin in a soundproof bubble and just roll her around from campaign stop to campaign stop so she doesn’t have to answer any questions but still gets too look pretty for the cameras.
