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.
