Truth to Power

Damn, but Palin is a ninny

Reading from a polished script, Palin opened the show in her now familiar Minnesota twang. She referenced meeting Beck in New York in the shadow of Lady Liberty – a monument given to the United State by France, she said, as “a gift to warn us against socialism.’’

No, you brainless git, it wasn’t:

“Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States to commemorate the 100th anniversary of American independence.

If she had her way, I imagine this would be sandblasted off the base:

“Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” </em>

Few things in life anger me more than having someone think I’m stupid enough to believe any nonsense they jabber out, uncritically. The entire world is not the cozy confines of Faux Noise/Facebook land, Gov. Half Term…a fact you’ll discover if you’re ever vain and ill-advised enough to actually run for office again.
