Yesterday the last person at Fox News who still enjoys Sarah Palin's company, Sean Hannity, ("Close your eyes and pretend she's still hot. Close your eyes and pretend she's still hot.") had the "Distasta from Alaska" on to talk about, of all things, poll numbers. (No not numbers performed with a pole, actual POLL numbers.)
In the segment Palin did something that she has tried very hard to resist doing in past interviews, she actually mentioned Mitt Romney's name, albeit through tightly clenched teeth.
After the set up Sean Hannity served his softball: "My conclusion is that Mitt Romeny's looking pretty good in that poll."
Botox Barbie: "Well he is, and the more time that Mitt Romney (Hisss!)has to get his message out the better it is for him. When voters start understanding that middle class families have seen the decimation of their net worth to the tune of 40% under Barack Obama, and monumental fiscal failures are really the hallmark of this administration. (Actually, you nasty bitch, the 40% decrease in middle class net worth is directly tied to the recession that the Bush administration ushered in and that the Republicans have worked to keep THIS President from rectifying.) The more time that Mitt Romney has to get those FACTS out there the more you'll the polls change.
Hannity then goes on to ask the "Lunatic from Lake Lucille" if she thinks the numbers showing the Democrats having a 20% better turnout in 2012 as opposed to 2008 are being purposefully manipulated by the media in the President's favor.
(Gee I wonder how Palin will respond to an opportunity to attack the media?)
Snowdrift Snooki: "No question,.a..abs..absolutely and that's par for the course with the,,the manipulation of the media's message, and you know they..like they did four years ago Sean...they chose their ONE and they did all that they could to usher him into the White House, We're going to see the same tactics this go around, and I think voters though are wiser perhaps this go around, in understanding that the media DOES manipulate information. The filter that the media is is something that a politician, a candidate, has to be extremely astute in a in kind of decimating that filter and..uh..getting through it so that he public has the correct information."
Okay she DOES realize that she just said all of this on FOX NEWS right? Manipulating information is a core principle of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes. It is in fact the ENTIRE reason that this cable news station exists. They actually won a lawsuit allowing them to lie to the American people for fuck's sake!
Well Palin continues to babble incoherently for the next several minutes, looking for all the world like a washed up alcoholic that somebody shook awake on a nearby bar stool to ask her opinion about politics. Of course she is significantly less coherent however.
Then Hannity asks Palin a final question about the points the President made (From video taken in 2011 by the way) comparing his plan with the Republican's plan for the economy.
Hannity: "Doesn't that reek of desperation Governor, to you?" (Yeah THAT doesn't sound prejudicial at all!)
The "Road Kill Coiffed Rogue": "Well it does, consider the source though Sea. I mean read Barack Obama's autobiographies, that he wrote before he accomplished anything, the two books. He made up things in his books and the media, by the way, didn't vet him let him get away with it, Composite girlfriends, and composite experiences that shaped him. So it should be no surprise, no wonder, that he MAKES THINGS UP today, and the lap dogs in the media go along with him. But you know as for that accusation of Romney not being transparent enough with his private funds, and where he invests his dollars. Here it's Debbie Wasserman Schultz accusing him of not revealing more of his tax records, SHE'S never revealed her tax records! (Debbie Wasserman Schultz is running for President?) So if this isn't the kettle calling the pot "black," or the pot calling the kettle "black" I don't know what is. And really if it weren't so insanely hypocritical all of this would be laughable.
Holy shit! There is so much projection going on here that it almost seems that Palin is having a session with her therapist, while strapped in a straight jacket, rather than giving an interview on television. The President "makes things up?" The "lies" that are in OBAMA'S book? The Democrats are "hypocrites?" Seriously?
Somewhere Sigmund Freud is clawing his way out of his grave. pad of paper in hand, hoping to get this lunatic on a couch and start picking through her grey matter.
Again Palin seemed very unhinged and clearly there is a lot going on in her Wasilla "Fortress of Stupitude" that is impacting her mental health and ability to hold it together. (Gee I wonder what that could be?) This interview was ONLY a little less than nine minutes, and you could already see her start to unravel toward the end.
Fortunately for her the clamps holding her wig on kept the top of her head from blowing off.
