Greta sets up the interview for Palin by addressing the website from that DHS worker I posted about yesterday, and inviting her to go all Alex Jones about it.
And Palin, eyes in never blink mode, does not disappoint:
"Oh thank you for covering this one Greta, this one is unflippinbelievable. This one is stupidity on steroids...Obama administration."
Greta, who looks like having to talk to the Wasilla Wendigo causes her physical pain, expresses disbelief that something like this can happen, and that the man's supervisors knew about it. (It should be noted that while the DHS signed off on the idea of setting up a website to sell concert tickets there is NO evidence that they knew what the website contained.) However Palin knows EXACTLY why it happened.
"We'll find out more as to whether he received approval if this or not, because evidently, thus far, it looks like he did receive approval to have this side job of running the website. But its pretty ironic there that we hear that..uh..other officials are saying that appropriate actions will be taken if we what...form a committee and decide whether this guy has violated any kind of HR rules or not. Well it seems to be appropriate disciplinary action, with these very gnarly HR issues that we are seeing in..by some in the Obama administration. Result in what? Sharing tea and crumpets with the offending official. (Tea and crumpets? Where in the hell did THAT come from?) Look at the scandals in the IRS, the DOJ, now DHS, and NSA. (Wow that is a lot of acrimony over acronyms!) These are HR issues. (Does she even KNOW that HR stands for Human Relations? She throws it around like she is referring to the KKK.) It starts at the top when the Big Brother bosses decide what rules, what laws, they choose to follow, that day. (Palin follows this up with that thousand yard stare of hers that makes her look like a ventriloquist dummy whose owner just stepped out for a smoke.)
Greta then suggests that it can be difficult to get rid of government workers, but then suggest that if she were in charge she would find a way to remove the guy from his job.
This Palin's cue to make this personal.
"What are they afraid of, getting sued? So what? I fired people in my jobs as city manager (City Manager? I thought she was the Mayor?) and as Governor. And yep, I've been sued for firing those who have been engaged in nefarious acts. (You know like Walt Monegan who would not allow her to persecute her ex-brother-in-law, or the librarian who would not allow her to ban books, or the museum worker who would not stop teaching people facts. Such nefarious people.) So what? So you get sued. You have to go through that process, unfortunate, you know this is a society that loves these lawsuits. and so often it's the innocent who have to end up paying. And in this case it's going to be the taxpayer having to pay for court costs and everything else if the guy does decide to sue, but SO WHAT! Get him out of there. Maybe he's in a union, protected by some union thug leadership, thinking that this guy I a public servant. Well he's not a public servant, He wants to kill his fellow Americans, we need to get rid of him. And by the way it's very important that the leaders in these agencies, and in this administration, can truly have servant's hearts. (Wait, what? Well this train to Crazy Town just made a pit stop ins WTF-ville!) It's got to be more than just..um.. security for..uh..job security for an individual like this official. That isn't what we should be concerned about, it needs to be servant's hearts, Serving we the people." (Then she comes to a dead stop, and it's all dead eyes again.)
Greta then suggests the possibility that the man's superiors did not know about the website because the agency is too big.
Why is Palin grinning like that?
"Well I'm glad you bring that up. (Uh oh!) Because that's a fundamental problem in our government . It is so grandiose, so large, that things are out of control. This is an example of that. Where what, the agency even is so big that a supervisor, a boss, can't keep hold of one of its employees. (This might be a good place to remind everybody that Obama has been shrinking the size of government quite significantly since he has been in office.) Didn't do the right background information? Or continued information gathering? They gather information on all of us innocent Americans, why not one of their employees whose in charge of security, buying the guns and ammo? They couldn't do any surveillance, if you will, on this guy to find out what the heck his vocation, his avocation, happened to be? Trying to kill whites!"
Greta looks a little shocked and quickly moves the topic to Ashton Kutcher, acting as if it is beyond surprising that a liberal Hollywood type would advocate hard work.
Palin continues that theme and essentially infers that Kutcher must have abandoned his liberal ideals in order to embrace the conservative ones of hard work, which of course were NEVER simply conservative ideals. It is kind of humorous hearing a woman who works about once a week, and parties the other six, judging others concerning their work ethic.
After that segue Greta asks Palin about rumors that she might challenge Mark Begich for his Senate seat in 2014. (Can I answer that? She won't. Okay, fine let's hear her dance around the issue.)
"Well our present Senator, Mark Begich..'Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch' which is kind of how we refer to him up here. (No we don't.) He's being led by this bunch of Harry Reid, and President Obama...Mark Begich having been so supportive of their agenda. Ushering in Obamacare ,and incurring more and more debt. He certainly needs to be replaced. And we need someone there who understands that..uh..you know our country's going bankrupt ( Also not true.) and we need to rein in government, some simple 'we the people' type principles that need to be enacted. And that's not going to come from Mark Begich. He needs to be replaced, but Greta it doesn't have to be me. There are thousands of good Alaskans (Thousands?) with that servant's heart and the ability and the desire to serve we the people. Doesn't have to be me. I do think it's kind of hilarious though that Mark Begich seems to want to use my name as his fundraising tool so often with his far left friends (Translation: Alaskans who hate me.) cause every time I speak about this issue he'll fire of emails, and fundraising pleas saying 'Sarah Palin's talking about taking my job.' It's kind of in a panic there, being threatened I guess, but it doesn't have to be me, and as of this date I am not planning to run for the US Senate, but I certainly would never say never in this case." (Yeah how could she convince whose idiots to donate to SarahPAC if she stopped pretending she was going to run for office?)
Greta tries to get an actual answer out of Palin, but to no avail.
Said rather crankily, "The door is never going to be closed in terms of opportunity that could be out there to serve people who are deserving of those with common sense conservative values, but Mark Begich, and heck all those far left Senators I..err..ya know..they do need to be replaced..uh..President Obama does not need more numbers on his side of the aisle when it comes to incurring more debt and burdening Americans with more and more big brother government."
Okay did Palin actually rip Begich for using scare tactics to raise money? Seriously?
By the way though I may WISH that Mark Begich was working to push forward a progressive agenda, his recent ads on talk radio certainly do not support that. In fact most of them are very adversarial toward the President.
Damn that was quite a ride on the crazy train.
I will leave it up to all of you to discuss her wig, her thousand yard stare, and her word salad.
Me, I need some more coffee. This is MUCH too early to be listening to anything this stomach churning.
Update: Here is the official transcript, which I REALLY wish I had found before I transcribed this whole thing by hand.
