Sarah Palin Admits She’s a Liar

with one comment

Charlie Gibson has nailed her on her Bridge to Nowhere bullshit. Let’s see if there are any consequences to the fact that she has just admitted she’s been lying her ass off to crowd after crowd, television crew after television crew, and millions of American voters for the last two weeks.

More Shit Sarah Palin is Wrong About.

leave a comment »

Yeah, she’s doesn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is. Of course she doesn’t, she’s completely unqualified for the job. But when asked if she’s ever met a foreign head of state she said, “I have not. And if you go back and ask that question of many Vice Presidents they may have the same answer.”

Actually, that’s bullshit. Don’t believe me? Go back in history and ask that question of “many” Vice Presidents. Here’s a run down of all the ones who could answer (the rest are dead):

  1. Tricky Dick Cheney— former Secretary of Defense and White House Chief of Staff. Met Foreign heads of State.
  2. Al Gore— long serving U.S. Senator. Met many foreign heads of State.
  3. George H.W. Bush— former U.S. Ambassador to China and head of the CIA. Likewise met many foreign heads of State.
  4. Dan Quayle. Check. Dan fucking Quayle, are you kidding me?! Nope. He’d met ’em too.
  5. Walter Mondale. Yup, him too.

Well, that’s it. The rest are dead. But going back more than 30 years, we’ve never had a VP who hadn’t done the deed, shaken the hand, taken the bow, exchanged the lei. It’s just Sarah. But c’mon let’s face it, the truth ain’t her strong suit anyway.

Holy Crap! Palin Doesn’t Know What the Bush Doctrine Is!

leave a comment »

From ABC News by way of the Huff Post

Asked by ABC News’ Charlie Gibson whether she supported the Bush Doctrine, Palin stared blankly for a moment before turning the question back on Gibson. “In what respect?”

The ABC anchor responded, “Well, what do you interpret it to be?” clearly testing her knowledge of the policy that has been in place since September 2002, before the Iraq war.

Palin couldn’t say, offering an answer that didn’t even mention preemption. 

I can’t fucking believe it. This woman believes herself to be qualified to run the world and she is unaware of the guiding principle of this nation’s foreign policy for the past seven years?!

Moreover, that principle was design and instigated by the head of her own party, G.W. Bush

Gimme a fucking break.

Gibson let her off way too easy.

Maureen Dowd’s List of Questions for Charlie Gibson

with one comment

After snowmobiling, walking some picturesque trails, and maybe visiting the school where she grew up, Charlie Gibson might actually ask Sarah Palin some questions. Maureen Dowd has a pretty nice list:

What kind of budget-cutter makes a show of getting rid of the state plane, then turns around and bills taxpayers for the travel of her husband and kids between Juneau and Wasilla and sticks the state with a per-diem tab to stay in her own home?

Why was Sarah for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against the Bridge to Nowhere, and why was she for earmarks before she was against them? And doesn’t all this make her just as big a flip-flopper as John Kerry?

What kind of fiscal conservative raises taxes and increases budgets in both her jobs — as mayor and as governor?

When the phone rings at 3 a.m., will she call the Wasilla Assembly of God congregation and ask them to pray on a response, as she asked them to pray for a natural gas pipeline?

Does she really think Adam, Eve, Satan and the dinosaurs mingled on the earth 5,000 years ago?

Why put out a press release about her teenage daughter’s pregnancy and then spend the next few days attacking the press for covering that press release?

As Troopergate unfolds here — an inquiry into whether Palin inappropriately fired the commissioner of public safety for refusing to fire her ex-brother-in-law — it raises this question: Who else is on her enemies list and what might she do with the F.B.I.?

Does she want a federal ban on trans fat in restaurants and a ban on abortion and Harry Potter? And which books exactly would have landed on the literature bonfire if she had had her way with that Wasilla librarian?

Gibson Interview Turning Into Lovefest

leave a comment »

News comes today that “reformer“, Sarah Palin is going to escort Charlie Gibson around her hometown for two solid days later this week for their “interview” together.

See Sarah Speak on 9/11 and her “ideas” about keeping America Safe! See Sarah speak about her son’s deployment to Iraq! See her drive around a snowmobile with Charlie Gibson riding bitch!

Then, after cut-away footage of them walking through the woods (and maybe Sarah killing a moose!), they’ll sit down with some cocoa for these questions:

(1) Please tell us a series of tear-jerking stories about your decision to give birth to a Down Syndrome Child.

(2) Why are you so gosh darn popular?

(3) Isn’t it awesome that your are a reformer, with results that I will not require evidence thereof?

(4) How do you feel about Barack Obama not always wearing a flag-pin?

(5) Tell us about your oldest boy serving in Iraq?

(6) How do you stay in such good shape?

(7) Tell us about the time you saved your family from a feral rampaging Moose with just an SUV, an AK-47 and mortar?

(8) Do you find my bluejeans pleasing? It shows that I’m just your average $10 million a year journalist in a staged Alaskan interview.

McCain Camps Cracks Under Pressure— Prom Queen To Speak!

with one comment

After a week of criticism about the prom queen’s inability to speak for herself, Big Daddy John McCain has decided to let his bitch out.

The McCain camp today announced that it has offered the first Palin interview to former Good Morning America host, and long time McCain brown noser, Charlie Gibson.

Gibson, in the past has come to the defense of the McCain camp against the terrible liberal, Barack Obama. As such, the McCain camp probably figures they got a lightweight on the line so they figure what the hell. Hey, it’s a step up from US Weekly, right?

Here’s a blast from the past where Good Time Charlie defends poor John McCain (thought he was supposed to be some kinda tough guy soldier?) against the “unfairness” of having to compete against Obama’s superior fund raising abilities.

And here’s another clip where Gibson goes full on in the tank for McCain:
