The interview starts off with video of Ted Cruz's ridiculous non-filibuster filibuster, which even Cavuto could not report on with a straight face.
So Cavuto asks Arizona's newest notorious resident what she makes of it all. She of course jumps to his defense.
To make her point she claims that Cruz is waving the American flag while his colleagues are waving another kind of flag, and she starts waving a stick, which looks to me like it has a pair of her old crusty panties on it to indicate a white flag. (Yeah, I think it needs a few washings to be considered white again.)
Then she says:
"They're saying let's surrender until we win. That's their tactic? This is nonsense. More power to Senator Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, others who are standing up for what they campaigned upon, and that was to do whatever they could do, seize whatever tool they had, in this case the tools are in the Legislative branch...the purse strings...getting rid of socialized healthcare coverage policy of Barack Obama's."
Cavuto then brought up that John McCain said that it will be a "cold day in hell when they defund Obamacare" and that "I know how this movie ends. I don't know all the scenes before it ends, but I know how it ends, and we don't defund Obamacare." He then asks Palin what she thinks of that?
This damn near causes a tic to knock Palin's roadkill wig right off of her head, but she does respond with: "I think anyone who wants to wave that white flag right now in...in this battle for economic liberty in America is forgetting what America was built upon. (WTF?) America was built upon those willing to say, politically speaking, 'Hey I want to do what's right for freedom, for liberty, and if I die I die.' That's what Senator Ted Cruz is doing right now. Do you think he is standing up there in this quasi-filibuster...do you think he's going see as a result of this...all the big name contributions coming, just pouring into his coffers and you know the big political architects who've screwed so many things up lately, like you know Karl Rove and Dick Morris, and these guys who have tried to change the Republican party into one that would just go along to get along as a bunch of sheeple in order to appease President Obama, and some of these who want to transform America. No Senator Cruz is not going to see that as a result. But what he will see, whether he dies politically speaking upon this mountaintop or not of his, is the heart and soul of Americans who care about this country and the future of our economic liberty. We will be standing there having his back doing all that we can to support him and thanking him for being willing to fulfill his campaign promises."
Hang on let me catch my breath.
Damn that was a HUGE helping if insanity laced word salad.
So to read between the lines, John McCain is a coward who is waving the withe flag to appease Obama, and Ted Cruz is a patriot who will probably never attract financial support but WILL have the support of the lunatics like Sarah Palin. That about sum it up?
Palin goes on to shoot slings and arrows of outrageous fortune at the Republican "Establishment" for not supporting Cruz, but then Cavuto decides to ask her about Steven Schmidt's recent remarks. And asks her directly if she thinks he was "taking a slap" at her.
Hang on need to refill my popcorn bowl.
Okay back now.
"I don't know what the heck Steve Schmidt and his crew have been saying lately, I don't know about that comment. (Oh please you KNOW she knows exactly what he said and has been raging about it ever since he said it!) But you know I don;t like anonymous sources at all (Yeah and we know why!) and I think that it really allows the degradation of the journalistic ethics that we once had in this country."
Did Palin attempt to shame journalists for the "degradation of journalistic ethics" on FOX NEWS?
Cavuto then points out that Schmidt was not an anonymous source, but went on television to make his statement. However Palin's pissed and keeps right on pressing the attack.
"And that's fine, but I'm going to make the point though about anonymous sources being used though that Steve Schmidt HAS been a part of though, and there's dots that can be connected back to him and his ilk that have allowed that, journalists need to quit using these anonymous sources. So I won't be anonymous in making a statement about John McCain though and the campaign that I participated in with him. John McCain disrespected those who at the end of the game, running the campaign, started turning on Republicans who were standing up for the right things. I know John McCain, we have spoken about this, and I don't think that he will be hurt or harmed that I am speaking publicly about what he has told me. He disrespects those people who use anonymous sources to attack their own. He has told me that. So Steve Schmidt and his crew...especially...and yeah granted Steve Schmidt, this time he allowed his name to be attached to another besmirching comment about another Republican. But when those having used anonymous sources are elevated and continue to get to be cited as sources (Uh, you mean like Woodward and Bernstein?) well I join John McCain in dismissing them, and saying 'journalists stop using them.'"
Okay well that was almost enough to give me an aneurism.
Wow! She has clearly been holding onto a great deal of venom about Schmidt, and Cavuto's question just pricked the boil enough to let the poison spill out all over the damn place.
Cavuto then goes on to ask her the obligatory question of whether she is planning to run for President or not. Her response is "Am I running for President?" And she then goes on to claim that she just got back from moose hunting and has family commitments and little time "up here in Alaska." (Yeah right.)
All in all I think this was one of the crazier interviews, and clearly Cavuto knows how to asks her questions which really rattles her cage. I wonder how McCain will respond the next time somebody asks him about his one time running mate?
I bet it will be popcorn worthy.
If this is the kind of support that Ted Cruz is attracting he better get out of politics now before before one of these "patriotic Americans' kidnaps him and throws him down into a hole. ("He takes the lotion and rubs it in, or else he gets the hose again")
