Who are you gonna believe, HER or your lyin’ ears?

It the cultists at the Conservatives4Palin site weren’t trying to inflict great harm by elevating a blithering nincompoop to a position of great power, their attempts to spin Madam Malaprop’s frequent gaffes into axioms would inspire pity. Here’s a hilarious—and yet sad!—example addressing Palin’s Libya gaffe:

The headline over at Mediaite is “Sarah Palin Claims Libya Intervention Costing Americans $600 Million A Day.” If this were true, surely Mediaite could produce a quote from Palin saying that “the Libya intervention is costing American taxpayers $600 million a day.” Of course, Frances Martel, the left-wing radical [LULZ!—ed.] who wrote the blog post at issue, is unable to produce such a quote because Governor Palin never said it. Here’s what Palin actually said:

Yeah, that’s a good question and that’s the 600 million dollars a day question that is being asked now. Because that is the cost incurred by Americans as we support the no fly zone, which of course the no fly zone intervention or enactment is turning into more than that.

Martel must be too much of an extremist [snicker—ed.] to understand that “$600 million dollars a day question” is just an expression. When she said the “cost incurred by Americans,” she was referring to the “$600 million” that American taxpayers are on the hook for thus far in the intervention. If Palin had really wanted to claim that the intervention was costing us $600 million a day, she would have said “because that is the cost incurred by Americans everyday.”

Yep, “$600 million dollars a day question” is a very common expression. I think there was even a TV show by that name back in the 50s or something. And “squirmish” is a very common pronunciation of “skirmish,” since it evolved from a Middle English form with a silent “w.” Duh, everyone knows that.

If Palin told these folks to eat turds on saltines as a cure for male pattern baldness, they’d not only eagerly swallow their own butt-nuggets, they’d demand that Palin be made Surgeon General for being the most important woman scientist since Madame Curie.

Should Palin either decide not to run in 2012 or get shoved aside by the GOP money boys who actually want to win, the Cult of Palin meltdown will make the PUMA histrionics of aught-eight look like an exercise in good sportsmanship and team spirit. It’s gonna get ugly, y’all.

Ugly?  It is going to be more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.  I am stocking up on popcorn!

... just an expression

Like the stoical permanently dumbfounded expression on Greta’s face as she weighs up which direction to take the (pre-scripted) “interview” next without risking a total Snooki meltdown.

I’ll be the one to point out the obvious to any lurking C4Pers.

If Snooki meant to appropriate the common expression “64,000 dollar question” and didn’t intend it to mean “per day,” then she’d have neologized:

... that’s the 600 million dollars a day question that is being asked now. Because that is the cost incurred by Americans as we support the no fly zone ...

It’s quite possible, of course, that this is what she actually meant to was scripted to say, but the wordsalad gland in her brain fired up and garbled it as usual. But that would require her acolytes accepting that she made an error, and Her Holy Infallibleness just doesn’t do that HOWDAREYOUZOMGSEXISTSEXISTSEXIST.

Also.

Should Palin either decide not to run in 2012 or get shoved aside by the GOP money boys who actually want to win, the Cult of Palin meltdown will make the PUMA histrionics of aught-eight look like an exercise in good sportsmanship and team spirit. It’s gonna get ugly, y’all.

Oh yeah. They’re still relitigating last year’s Dancing with the Stars over there (and “squirmish” was deliberate wordplay, doncha know).

Should Palin either decide not to run in 2012 or get shoved aside by the GOP money boys who actually want to win,


Noooooooooooo! She must run. I’m all set to send money, run meetups and go door to door spouting insane gibberish. It’s going to be epic! Don’t take this away from me.

Relax—Bachmann is running even if Palin isn’t.

Snooki’s apparently trailed a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT to be made on some obscure Alaskan wingnut radio show this Friday—either her candidacy, or perhaps she’s finally gotten sponsorship for a windfarm on her Bumpit.

Steve, Palin will never let Bachmann win the Primary. There’s too much money at stake.

I can understand his reasoning, insomuch that it was said right after the “the 600 million question of the day”; but, a reasonable person with command of the English language would have realized that she would have mentioned 600 million A DAY. If she would have said “that is what it has cost us so far”, it would have been simple enough for simpletons to understand.

From one of the commenters that was not interested in Bristol and Dancing with the Stars..

I guess I’m just a simpleton.

I guess it is just a coincidence that the total cost was put at over $500 million ~ and it was announced on that same day.

From one of the commenters that was not interested in Bristol and Dancing with the Stars..

Amazing.  They’re still mooning over Bristol on DTWS, waxing nostalgic and anxiously counting the house for the new season.  Well why not, it was undoubtedly the high point of Bristol’s career and probably Gov. Half-baked Alaska’s too.  Those glory days aren’t coming back.

They’re mooning because DWTS and Palin’s hilarious critter-killingmissing reality show extravaganza were supposed to propel her to an unassailable position coming up to the primaries by exposing the electorate to the kwitter’s irresistable charm and earthy wisdom.

It ... didn’t work out so well.
