Jesus Christ, this woman is on the warpath. Not only did she completely blow the VP debate and yet somehow receive positive reviews the next day, but now she’s spouting nonsense about Obama being associated with terrorists. In the tiny, crazed mind of Sarah Palin (and others of her ilk), ALL brown people are potential terrorists, which means that Obama must be one as well.
Barack Obama, she told 8,000 fans at a rally here Monday afternoon, “launched his political career in the living room of a domestic terrorist!” This followed her earlier accusation that the Democrat pals around with terrorists. “This is not a man who sees America the way you and I see America,” she told the Clearwater crowd. “I’m afraid this is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to work with a former domestic terrorist who had targeted his own country.” The crowd replied with boos.
McCain had said that racially explosive attacks related to Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, are off limits. But Palin told New York Times columnist Bill Kristol in an interview published Monday: “I don’t know why that association isn’t discussed more.”
Well isn’t that interesting! McCain told her to avoid racially-motivated terrorist nonsense, but this nitwit is going to go ahead and run her mouth off about it anyway. Did the crowd boo at her because her remarks were idiotic? Of course not. They booed because they’ll believe anything she says, and now they’re convinced that Obama’s going to don a turban and bomb our country to hell. We can only hope that this stuff damages their campaign beyond all repair, but we should also know better than to trust the judgment of “Joe Sixpack” as she likes to call those “heartland” voters.
Worse, Palin’s routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric’s questions for her “less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media.” At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, “Sit down, boy.”
So not only is she good at completely avoiding the issues (as demonstrated in the VP debate), but she’s great at stirring up the crazies as well. This bitch could end up directing her own personal riots if we don’t keep an eye on it. I’m serious…there are enough fired-up voters and activists out there just itching for an excuse to do something crazy for their party, and this sweet-talking chowderhead could be the trigger they’re waiting for. Of course, this could come from angry Dems as well…everybody’s really on edge about this race lately!
