Sara Palin Watch!
Have you seen Sarah the Implaler's recent slow pitch softball interview with ABC's Charles Gibson? I don't watch network T.V. either. I rarely watch any television, but I did catch a portion of the horse shit she spewed to Gibson courtesy of Yahoo. In the interview, Alaska's finest claimed that her statement, "Our soldiers are on a task from God," was meant as some sort of echo of Abraham Lincoln's, "Pray not that God is on our side, but that we are on God's side." I defy anyone with an I.Q. above 90 to watch the tape of Sarah the Impaler in front of a bunch of high schoolers and make the case that her words were in any way informed by those of Abraham Lincoln. No, my friends, The Republican spin crew came up with this Lincoln cover story well after the fact. I imagine the conversation to put out the "she sure looks like a fundamentalist wing nut" fire involved something like this:
McCain spinmeister #1
"Have you come up with any ideas yet for the "from God" thing, Stan?
McCain spinmeister #2
I think so, Bill, take a look at this."
Hey, that's pretty good. No, that's very good. Now she can just say that this quote from Lincoln's was..
What she meant all along.
Yeah. Do you think she can sell that?
She sold 'em The Bridge to Nowhere.
P.S. You can watch the entire chilling interview, and/or view key transcripts of it here. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/11/sarah-palins-charlie-gibs_n_125772.html
