|"I've still got it!"|
Received this very kind comment from 91-year-old Iwo Jima veteran Mr. George Monta…
"Sarah, you are precious to me, a Iwo Jima Veteran, 91 years old and hoping you know how much America needs you!"
Of course I'm kind of teasing about the mash letter part, this seems like a genuinely nice old man, however I am not joking about the age of the folks who still believe that Sarah Palin is worthy of their respect or affection.
Of course due to this man's military service and history, Palin's ghostwritten response was syrupy sweet:
Mr. George Monta, YOU and your fellow veterans are the heroes America has always relied on. You kept us safe and fought selflessly for our freedoms, and literally brought the world back from the brink. The Greatest Generation is truly that; our leaders in Washington and those seeking to lead must be mindful of the true American spirit within you. YOU are precious to our great nation. God bless you, sir.
Now I agree that Mr. Monta is indeed a hero and deserves our respect.
However I would suggest that the entire reason Palin made such a big deal about receiving this comment is because, well first because it makes her feel wanted, and secondly because she thinks that it helps paint her as a supporter of the military.
However in truth she, and her fellow conservatives, are constantly looking to start some shit in the Middle East to find reason to send our soldiers into the middle of some firefight in a god forsaken desert where they can die for the "glory of their country."
People who support our military members do not constantly look for ways to end their lives. Just saying.
Sarah Palin is no supporter of the military. She is an opportunist who believes that associating herself with soldiers, and ex-soldiers, somehow makes her seem knowledgeable about war and foreign affairs. (Spoiler alert: She is knowledgeable about neither.)
And yes she dresses like this in order to carbonate the hormones of men, most of whom have not been able to get their little soldier to salute in decades, and to make them feel similar to the way strip club customers feel when the dancers rub boob glitter on their faces during a lap dance even though there is no way in hell they would ever go home with them.
And personally I am sickened by the fact that men like Mr. Monta, who really should know better, are so easily fooled by the magically inflatable chest, the store bought hair, and the poorly applied patriotic camouflage.
