Great Moments In Rationalization

Obama using a teleprompter?  Proof that he’s a lightweight.  Sarah Palin using notes scrawled on her hand?  Still more evidence of her down-to-earth humanity, and possibly even A Spot Of Brilliant Gamesmanship!

Chuck Todd:

“Daily Rundown” co-host Chuck Todd attempted to defend Palin, saying, “We’ve all done notes.”

Umm, sure.  When you’re the one giving the interview, or providing news or analysis.

But that’s mild compared to the Fox & Friends propagandists:

CARLSON: I think she did it on purpose. I think she did it on purpose, yeah. Because it’s an exact opposite of reading off the teleprompter with a script written for you with every word in a sentence and here’s she’s just taking crib notes on her hand. It makes her look like she can just talk off the cuff and she just jotted down a few couple notes before she went out to give a big long speech.

DOOCY: I think she did it because she probably does it a lot. I do that all the time. […]

KILMEADE: But to sit there and look at, and do the interview and look down at her hand, I think that is — like you said before, Gretchen — folksy, absolutely, down-to-earth, I can identify. But if you’re going to write on your hand, why not just say, ’staffer, hand me a card.’ And then it would be okay.

CARLSON: Nah, like I said, I think it was on purpose. But anyway, we we may never know.

Ah, I see.  She deliberately made herself look like a clueless boob in order to draw attention to what a clueless boob Obama is.  It was, like, satire – but at the same time totally demonstrated her bond with all the other good ol’ red-blooded American cheaters out there.  Genius!

A terribly sad commercial, full of pathos and heartache:

I weep.

When Lupicas Attack!

I don’t think Mike is very impressed by Ex-Semi-Governor Palin:

Now there are many, many ways Sarah Palin could help this country. Running for President will never be one of them. You listen to her long enough and actually feel yourself getting dimmer by the minute, like a dying light bulb.

If her vision and grasp of even the most basic issues – with or without cribnotes – were any lighter, you would have to tie a rock to her to keep her from floating away.

….When she doesn’t like Rahm Emanuel, the President’s chief of staff, using the word “retards” to describe liberal groups, she says Emanuel should be fired.

Then her buddy Rush Limbaugh comes out and says, “Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards.”

Chris Wallace asked her about that Sunday, and Palin practically wrestled herself to the ground so she didn’t make Limbaugh – who seems to take her seriously – mad at her. What Palin tried looked trickier than some yoga positions.

Palin: “Rush Limbaugh was using satire.”

No, he wasn’t. If Palin believes that, she really is more limited, and bubble-headed, than Paris Hilton. If not, she is simply a transparent phony.


The very best news of the weekend? It’s now official that she can fit her entire political philosophy in the palm of her hand.She thinks she is some kind of dream candidate for her party when the truth is that Palin is only a dream candidate for the other party.

All her friends on the right, the ones who treat her like a hot version of Margaret Thatcher, are afraid to say that. Or call her out for being the lightweight that she is, same as she was afraid to call out Limbaugh. So they all deserve one another.

Awesome.  It seems like there is literally nothing that will make the Republican base realize what a lightweight scam artist she is.
