I didn't mean the Ass remark in a nasty way, it's just that I remember the wonderful episode of Faulty Towers which had the Waldorf Salad in it.

Palin speaks about Paul Revere. Someone PLEASE get this lady off my tv? Please?
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I really wonders what she's thinking because she must know that she's just making stuff up. Is she thinking that as long as she sounds knowledgable at the moment, everything is going to be ok?

More like she's thinking, "It's okay if I say something incredibly moronic and wrong, if anyone points it out I'll just accuse them of being part of the elite, lamestream, gotcha-media that doesn't care about real American values dontchaknow?"
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

gods, what a blight upon our nation! PKMKII's comment is on-target, although I'm not entirely certain that she *knows* she's just spewing word salad. I thinks that she's been bamboozled by her own spin. :facepalm:

Everyone in this house [except for me] --one of whom is a teacher who abhores stupidity in non-politicians-- *adores* her and considers her refreshing and no-nonsense. They are unable and unwilling to put her to the reversal test: if everything about her were exactly the same *EXCEPT* political party affiliation, would they still admire her? Still be hanging on every incomprehensible sentence fragment and longing for the day when she seizes the reins of Presidential power?

No, absolutely not! They would see her as a third-class idiot, along with everyone else outside her base. Therefore, how and why does the appellation [R] excuse her anything? It is a mystery.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For what it's worth, the reversal test does not change my view of her -- except, perhaps for a "surge" of gratitude that she isn't perpetrating idiocy while under the [D] label. We've got enough idiots of our own.

I think Palin, the Tea Party, and the GOP in general right now can be summed up, by saying that they've violated the business axiom that you should never believe your own marketing.

I cannot express how much I dislike the current 2 party system. Every election I have to choose between the people who think things like gay marriage are threats Americans need to be protected from, and the people who think the government can solve all our problems if only we give them enough money, power, and authority. Not to mention both sides claiming to follow God.

One thing is certainly true in the world of politics: S**t always rises to the top.

You *couldn't* have won. Paul Revere warned you not to! :haha:
