Sarah Palin and Co. Need to Go Pt. 2

Sarah Palin has turned away from the juvenile forums of Facebook and Twitter, at least for a

All body...No brains

 while, to release a new book – America by Heart.  Well, in this case an excerpt.

“We have to know what makes America exceptional today more than ever because it is under assault today more than ever,” the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee writes in the excerpt released Saturday.

“I can’t think of a sadder prospect for Todd and me than our spending our sunset years telling our grandson, Tripp, and our grandchildren yet to come about what it was like in America when we were strong and proud and free,” she adds. “But maybe I can think of a sadder prospect: Tripp and our other grandchildren spending their whole lives working to pay off the irresponsible debt we have accumulated and are about to leave to them.”

‘Under assault today more than ever?’  C’mon, Sarah, you don’t mean to tell me that you still believe in the whole “terrorists attacked us on 9/11 because of our prosperity, religion, and that we are the brightest beacon of freedom” thing, do you?

‘Strong and proud and free?’  You would be including George W. Bush as an opponent to that very same thing, wouldn’t you?  I mean, after all, his malicious lies to the American people over Iraq.  His insistent “stay the course” when evidence was telling us to avoid the iceberg, the war crimes of torture, etc.  As an opponent to freedom you would be including President Bush’s National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 51 in that, wouldn’t you?

Just as a short tutorial – because we know you don’t like to read books – here’s a basic rundown: in the event that a matter of national security or cataclysmic event, the president has the power to bring all three branches of the federal government under his power, and it will take place of the nations regular government.

Not very Constitutional.  Not very much of the resemblance of “freedom”.  And, to me, not very much in the direction of the “Amer’can Way”.  By the way, to the casual reader, Directive 51 still sits on the President’s desk, no matter who the President is.  I suggest you click on the link and read the other topics.

Debt?  I couldn’t agree more.  But aside from being a political sniper for Fox News, not even a full term governor, and Sean Hannities BFF, how do you plan to handle the debt?  Why don’t we start with the failed foreign policy that you support?  To be completely truthful, our interventionist foreign policy does not make up all of our nation’s debt, but it contributes to a good chunk, and its a damn good place to start cutting.

Now I am a registered voter, Ms. Palin, so tell me, do you snipe politicians based on the fact of “party”, or do you hate the seed of corruption all the way around?  Because if it is the latter, then you wouldn’t have run with one of the most corrupt, ignorant politicians in 2008.

Sarah Palin has tapped into the disgruntled American syndrome and has grown monetarily fatter because of it.  Americans would be stupid to buy her books.

Or as Philip Giraldi says, “Sarah Palin doesn’t know anything about foreign policy.”

I seriously hope that Sarah Palin put a lot more thought into this book and used other forms of taking notes instead of her hand.

As an after thought, Sarah Palin’s Republican’s – or Teapublicans, whatever you want to call them – blocked unemployment benefits for Americans in the name of “balancing the budget”.  This reminds me of the aftermath of September 11, 2001 when then-President Bush legislated for unemployment benifits and the Republicans went with him.  Can you say friggin’ hypocritical?

I’ve got an idea: How about stop sending money to corrupt foreign governments?  Work outside in instead of inside out, and in the process shamming Americans out of a livelihood.  What a way to kick a person in the go-nads in the middle of the Holiday season?

    Right-wingers see American exceptionalism as a strong military.

    Left-wingers see it as innovation, opportunity, leadership in world affairs, and making the world a better place.

    Great post. You have pinpointed Palin’s lack of gravitas on both domestic and foreign policy. She is simply a rather poorly educated person who merely parrots generalized talking points rather than proposing any detailed policy positions of her own. The reason being is that she has none or is incapable of articulating them. For instance, her only solution to reducing the national debt is to somehow do it by adding to the debt by tax cuts for the rich. She is clueless.

    I hope you have a happy holiday with family and friends.
