Sarah Palin has become comfy in her status as a ‘talking head’ and “political analyst.” In as much, she has proven that she cannot quite stay on topic. Thusly, like her Fox News counterparts, she finds the time to politicize something. With Greta Van Susteren she once again used the word (she created) “lamestream media” and “Barack Hussein Obama”.
“Funny… that we are learning more about Christine O’Donnell and her college years, her teenage years, and her financial dealings than anybody even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president,” Palin said.
This is a direct reversal of her campaign in 2008. When a Florida sheriff used the President’s middle name the Palin campaign released the following:
“We do not condone this inappropriate rhetoric which distracts from the real questions of judgment, character, and experience that voters will base their decisions on this November,” the spokesperson said then.
Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said “what’s in a name?”
This is entirely reminiscent of Ann Coulter saying that President Obama wants to be known by his middle name. But she ‘doesn’t know’.
…and where she refers to the President as “B. Hussein Obama”.
