Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told Fox News & Commentary that she found the card to be a bit unusual. “It’s odd,” she said, wondering why the president’s Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like “family, faith and freedom.”
Compare and contrast the White House card and the Fox News Card in the linked story.
A firestorm on the US right has erupted after the Guardian reported that Sarah Palin will be denied a meeting with Lady Thatcher on the grounds that it would be “belittling” for her to meet the darling of the Tea Party movement… One Thatcher ally told the Guardian: “Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.”
MC Graham on Sarah Palin: her fall from grace, her stubborn persistence in the media, and how Liberals aren’t hating her and general cultural regression enough. Salient bits:
Fortunately, most people don’t like Palin. She lost a considerable amount of political capital after her humorlessly self-important response to the shooting in AZ, which was a rather odd mis-step for her to make. Public tragedies are like a religion for Americans.
I think that she honestly doesn’t know the Paul Revere myth, or couldn’t recall the details of a straightforward children’s story under pressure, which is sad, and should disqualify her from working on a small-town early evening news program let alone as Commander-in-Chief, but her word salad, vaguely populist speech patterns are nothing new. Actually, they are simply what she is.
He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.
