Obama Talks, Sarah Squawks: America’s Back-Seat Driver Can’t Let Go of the Hate
Well, this was inevitable. In her latest diurnal emission, Sarah shames the Framers with her trademark “It may be Constitutional, but it just ain’t right” re-imagining of America’s Founding Principles, as revised, amended, footnoted and circumscribed by T. Herman Zweibel, with a codicil by Glenn Beck—Legitimate Questions for the President:
Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive “cross-cultural engagement” and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven’t they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite? Mr. President, why aren’t you encouraging the mosque developers to accept Governor Paterson’s generous offer of assistance in finding a new location for the mosque on state land if they move it away from Ground Zero? Why haven’t they jumped at this offer? Why are they apparently so set on building a mosque steps from what you have described, in agreement with me, as “hallowed ground”? I believe these are legitimate questions to ask.
Two can play that game, my little Nudnik of the North. So let’s consider some Legitimate Questions for Sarah Palin:
♦ Do you have a Plan for America, or are you content to snipe from the shadows with no responsibility for your actions?
♦ Since you believe tolerance, reconciliation and healing are Bad for America, are you embracing divisive, polarizing fear-mongering as an acceptable substitute?
♦ Do you intend to run for President in 2012, or simply continue to milk your supporters’ hopes that you’ll run in order to leverage lucrative Celebrity Speaking Gigs, Book Deals, TV Contracts and donations to your PAC?
♦ Should you decide to run for President, will Todd cancel his snow-machine team’s financial sponsorship by Venezuela’s Citgo petroleum group?
♦ Do you believe that running America would be a) more or b) less challenging than running your mouth?
