Al Sharpton compares the "big dogs" on either side of the Obamacare debate. Bill Clinton vs....Sarah Palin?
Gotta love that!
By the way Wonkette reminds us that yesterday marked our five year anniversary of mocking Sarah Palin:
It all started back on Aug. 29, 2008, when John McCain was all, “Hey ladies who wanted Hillary but did not get Hillary, here is another lady who also has a vagina, maybe you will vote for her instead even though she is nothing like Hillary except that she also has a vagina! Go mavericks!”
It did not take the basement-dwelling bloggers very long — like, oh, maybe six seconds — to be all, “Hey, John, did you mean to pick that governor of Alaska, what is in the middle of an ethics investigation?”
And then, about six seconds after that, we found out that Palin was going to be a grandma, which did not seem possible because Palin had always taught her children to abstain from the sexytime until they had a proper hillbilly wedding, and none of them had hillbilly wedding’d yet, so how could any of them possibly be pregnant unless it was immaculate conception maybe, like Jesus, except no, it turns out it was just drunken out-of-wedlock, going-to-hell “fuckin’ redneck” sextyime. However, with a reality TV show about how she’s just like any normal high school dropout teen mom and a book tour about how awful glad she is that she “chose life” after she “chose to get knocked up,” Bristol has revirginized herself and is now free to lecture the president on why every child deserves a mother and a father unless the father is Levi Johnston, so we can just strike all that stuff from the record.
Then there was the most excellent interview with Charlie Gibson, where she explained how she would “perhaps” do war to Russia, about which she is an expert because she can see it from her house. (Okay, okay, she did not say she can see it from her house — that was a Saturday Night Live skit — but she DID basically say she knows all about them thar Ruskies because you can see Russia from Alaska, which is dumb enough for us.
And then there was that gotcha journalism interview with Katie Couric, where Katie totally tricked Palin into being an illiterate idiot.
It all went downhill from there, of course.
Ahh, good times!
Has it been five years already? Boy, time sure flies when your saving your country from a lunatic, right?
