Disgust at the Moderate CCBB Republicans
As the week continues, more stories keep coming out about how dumb Sarah Palin supposedly is. Frankly, I'm disgusted by this nonsense. It's asinine upon it's face, and demonstrates that the CCBB Moderates are even closer to the slime tossing Democrats than we had previously suspected.
From Rush Limbaugh's website, I get this transcript of a report by Fox Reporter Carl Cameron.
CAMERON: Early on, they began to discover that there were these gaps in her knowledge. I just want to rattle off a couple of the things that insiders say she just simply didn't know. There were real problems with basic civics, government structures; municipal state and federal government responsibilities. She didn't know the nations involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement, we're told. She didn't understand, McCain aides told me today, that Africa was a continent and not a country, and actually asked them -- they argue, they say -- if South Africa wasn't just part of the country as opposed to a country in the continent. They go on to say that she didn't understand the idea of American exceptionalism, a classic principle of Wilsonian doctrine that says that the United States is exceptional in the world and has therefore a very special role in leading the globe.Now why Carl Cameron didn't look at his secret source and go. "You know, Sarah has been in Municipal and State Government. She's been the one who has worked in those levels of Government. I think she's liable to know the responsibility that she had as a City Councilman, a Mayor, and a Governor. I also don't think that the people in Alaska are so stupid that they would elect a drooling idiot to those offices."
Yet, Carl Cameron, who has demonstrated that he is a moron in his own right, never bothered to ask even this most obvious questions. Instead of seeing this for what it was, he promptly ran with it like he'd managed to get the scoop of the century.
Now look, let's be honest. Ten minutes after Sarah Palin was named as the Vice President, the DNC, and every newspaper tabloid in the world were en-route to Alaska with fists full of hundred dollar bills, digging through every courthouse in the state to find something, any dirt they could. They came up as empty as an Obama promise to be bi-partisan.
The rest of the assertions are equally asinine. I've already addressed most of them.
Instead, I'm going to link to other supporters of Sarah Palin, and the actions they're taking. Team Sarah is the obvious first stop.
The link to Michelle's website takes you to a page where she encourages you to sign a petition to show your appreciation for, and support of Sarah Palin. I'm one of the ten thousand people who've signed this, and I'll invite you to sign here.
Finally, this link takes you to a page a local Alaska Radio show has up. They interviewed Governor Palin Thursday Morning. Please take a few minutes and listen to it.
You can also write Fox News and object to them allowing themselves to be the instrument of baseless character assassinations. email@example.com
