On the Origin of Speciousness -OR- The Sleep of Reason, and the Disorders Thereof

Political fantasist C. Edmund Wright at American Thinker peels back the meningeal wrappings of Palin Derangement Syndrome, and reveals the psychic taproot of irrational lib-brain Sarahnoia: She’s just as scary-stupid as Reagan.

Palin and Reagan are similar in that they both can use a few simple words and communicate more truth to average Americans than the media elites can with rambling professorial or lawyer speak. When she told Charlie Gibson that “you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska,” she refers to a profound sense of reality one automatically gets when you see your mortal enemy every single day. Now I understood it the day she said it. Send a memo to David Brooks please.

When Reagan quipped “tell ‘em the bombing starts in five minutes,” he spoke volumes about the good guys, the bad guys, our relative capabilities and our moral imperative. Brevity is the soul of wit—and does not require a teleprompter. Many Americans understood the genius in that so-called off-handed comment instantly. Oh, so did Gorbachev.

So there it is. We fear Palin not because she is impaired, but because—like Reagan—she is profoundly impaired.

His point would make more sense if Sarah was from the western tip of the Aleutian Islands or something, where Sarah actually DID see Russia all the time. 

As it is, do we actually have any record of her seeing Russia from anywhere, at any time?

“tell ‘em the bombing starts in five minutes,”

Here’s the actual quote:

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.

Reagan didn’t realize the mic was live. But brevity being the soul of wit and all requires those who Worship at the Altar of St. Ron to abbreviate his wisdom.

Many Americans understood the genius in that so-called off-handed comment instantly. Oh, so did Gorbachev.

Except Gorby wasn’t in charge in ‘84.

Apparently the folks at American Stinker aren’t allowed to use the internons to do fact checking because they will get distracted and look at pony porn.

We’re talking the Saint Ronald of Bel-Air who saw The Day After and subsequently couldn’t fold the American nuclear arsenal fast enough at Rekjavik, right?

Russia: still our “mortal enemy.”

“Profound sense of reality:” Huh?

“As it is, do we actually have any record of her seeing Russia from anywhere, at any time?”
Reportedly, Sarah Palin has never been to the Alaskan island from where Russian territory is visible. However, Michael Palin has.

Well, OK, maybe she’s never actually seen Russia, but she has conducted “trade missions” with them.

Well, OK, maybe not that either.

If the turkey-slaughtering video was a demonstration of the erstwhile Governor of Alaska’s powers of observation, then Russia could safely send a U-boat down the main drag in Wasilla on a flatbed without her noticing.

That is, if Russia ever safely sends a U-boat anywhere.

btw, Strange, your Reagan looks like a cross between Michael Imperioli and a killer Koala. The whole thing may replace the rabbit nostril as most insomnia-inducing image in the Strange/Rumproast gallery.

Then again, rabbit nostril.

“When Reagan quipped “tell ‘em the bombing starts in five minutes,” he spoke volumes about the good guys, the bad guys, our relative capabilities and our moral imperative.”

This is pure sociopathy.
The moral imperative to not just threaten, but commit, a nuclear holocaust. It’s sickening.
