Well, who’da thunk? Now we know those editors must be socialists up there at the Anchorage Daily News.
They had the gall to endorse Barack Obama for president. Are they ever in for it if Sarah Palin wins her quest for unlimited, and as she informs us, constitutionally flexible, Cheney style power.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s already been given the phone taps to the editors’ private numbers by now. Heck, I bet she’s got her first dude cooking up some of that famous patented Palin vengeance to serve them once she’s back up north. It’s gonna be a long dark winter for those nasty gotcha journalists.
And speaking of gotcha journalism, did you catch that interview she and Johnny granted to NBC’s Brian Williams? Williams foolishly tried to ruffle her feathers by bringing up Colin Powell’s endorsement for Obama. She just reminded Williams that she and Johnny already had endorsements from 4 or 5 former Republican Secretaries of State. Who needs Powell anyway?
It didn’t matter that Powell and McCain were both republicans, or even that they were both Vietnam War veterans. Rush Limbaugh clearly saw that Powell was supporting Obama only because they were both black. Nothing escapes the great oxy-moron’s keen insight.
Williams couldn’t resist exposing his liberal elitist bias when he asked her who she thought the elitists were. The humbly garbed Sarah saw right through that little ploy. We learn that it’s not about being a member of the rich and famous ruling class that makes one an elitist. No, it’s those liberal socialists who think they are better than the Real Americans from all those pro-America small towns.
And I was so gullible to think $22,000 worth of professional make-up work would qualify someone as elitist. I suppose the McCain's $270,000 annual wages paid to their domestic staff wouldn't make them elitists, either.
Finally Williams futilely tried to snare Sarah with his gotcha question about who the terrorists are.
Brian Williams: Is an abortion clinic bomber a terrorist under this definition?
Sarah Palin: [Sighs] There’s no question Bill Ayers, via his own admittance, was, um, one who sought to destroy, er, our US Capitol and our Pentagon. That is a domestic terrorist. Ah, there’s no question there. Now, others who would want to engage in harming innocent Americans or um, facilities, that, uh, that would be unacceptable. Uh, I don’t know if you’re going to use the word “terrorist” there, but it’s unacceptable and, uh, it, er, would not be condoned, of course, on, on our watch, but I don’t know what you’re asking is if I regret referring to Bill Ayers as an unrepentant domestic terrorist. I don’t regret characterizing him as that.
Brian Williams: I’m just asking what other categories you would put in there. Abortion clinic bombers, protesters in cities where fires were started, Molotov cocktails were thrown, people died.
Sarah Palin: I would put in that category of Bill Ayers anyone else who would seek to campaign to destroy our United States Capitol and our Pentagon and would seek to destroy innocent Americans.
You see, it’s not terrorism when you bomb abortion clinics with their evil doctors, staff, and patients. Come to think of it, those kinds of people are not even REAL Americans, let alone innocent Americans.
It may be unacceptable and not condoned, but easily forgiven and pardoned if the bomber is a real American.... Like say, Joe the plumber. We can’t use the word “terrorist” for those who believe that bombing is a form of oh, say, religious expression. Those fundamentalist types are part of what is called “the base”. They are the common folk who always fall in line behind the wedge issues to vote republican. Sarah was brought into the campaign to appeal to the base.
How can we call someone who thinks God wants them to punish the wicked enemies of their religion a terrorist? Sarah can clearly judge such distinctions.
It’s not like they’re crazed Muslim fundamentalists who think Allah wants them to kill infidels. Now those nuts are clearly terrorists. They even label their radical group with the sinister name of al-Qaeda. That would be the Arabic word for “the base”.
