Eating their own

Peggy Noonan is usually a bit of a wingnut right-wing columnist. But not today. Today, writing about Palin’s resignation, she is the voice of truth:

In television interviews she was out of her depth in a shallow pool. She was limited in her ability to explain and defend her positions, and sometimes in knowing them. She couldn’t say what she read because she didn’t read anything. She was utterly unconcerned by all this and seemed in fact rather proud of it: It was evidence of her authenticity. She experienced criticism as both partisan and cruel because she could see no truth in any of it. She wasn’t thoughtful enough to know she wasn’t thoughtful enough.

You can read the full article here, and it’s well worth it. Please, please let this be the last, final word on this illiterate, ignorant twit.

The sad thing is…

…that I think they’re starting to believe it. 

Here I sit this morning, listening to Amy Holmes (a usually intelligent commentator) defend the “Joe the Plumber” metaphor and explain how Sarah Palin has “excited the nation.”

Also, apparently Palin is now considered a viable candidate for 2012 by her party. I swear, if my country ever makes this woman the front-runner for a major political contest again,I will change my name to Fozzie Bear.

To my readers: This was admittedly a lame attempt to insert a picture of Fozzie Bear into a political blog post, but come on – look at him. It’s Fozzie Bear. It’s not like I threw a Swedish Chef reference in. Bork.

Wheels coming off…

Soooooo….Palin has stated her intention to run in 2012. When CNN contacted the McCain campaign for comment, their actual response was:

“Huh.”

Check it out.

Remember – Maverick killed Goose.

I’m not going to analyze the debate because there are other, smarter, Huffingtonier people doing that all over the internets today. On a personal level, though, a friend of mine provided this excellent summation:

“That was the most unfunny Tina Fey special ever.”

I also found this little nugget from the last Katie Couric interview. I think it was buried under the coverage of Palin not knowing a single Supreme Court case ever (except that one in the bible they’re always talking about). For you lazy non-clickers, here’s the transcript:

“Katie Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious: what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?
Sarah Palin: I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.
KC: But, like, what ones specifically? I’m curious.
SP: All of ’em, any of ’em that have been in front of me over all these years.
KC: Can you name a few?
SP: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news too. Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where, it’s kind of suggested and it seems like, ‘Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C. may be thinking and doing when you live up there in Alaska?’ Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.”

Excepting the need to define for this woman the difference between specifically and generally, I guess that it’s an improvement that the GOP has gone from a President that doesn’t read any newspapers to instead running a candidate that reads…all of them?

I’m sorry. I mispoke. I meant “all of ’em.” Damn liberal consonants.
