Sarah Palinís confusing tweet (more inanity)
Daily Caller ^ | 8/19/10 | Justin Duckham

Posted on 08/19/2010 1:17:14 PM PDT by pissant

In a tweet Wednesday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin suggested that Laura Schlessinger may have had her First Amendment rights violated in the controversy surrounding the conservative talk show host’s repeated use of the n-word.

The tweet reads: “Dr.Laura:don’t retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American,not fair”)”

The former governor’s response is a little confusing, and not just because of her mangled syntax and excessive use of abbreviations. In February, Palin asked the White House to fire Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel over his use of the word “retarded.” She has also joined the chorus opposing the Ground Zero Mosque. Since she was not in office during either incident, is she not an activist trying to silence individuals and stifle their First Amendment rights?

What Palin apparently doesn’t realize is that the First Amendment is a two-way street. Yes, you can express yourself, but you shouldn’t cry wolf when somebody disagrees with what you or tells you to be quiet.

And she wanted Rahm fired for using the word 'retards'. ROFL. She's Gladys Kravitz on steroids.

With all due respect, I believe she is the best chance moderates have.

Here’s a little info on pissant’s BFF “Justin Duckham”, the author of this nasty little hit piece:

“Justin Duckham is a Washington correspondent with the Talk Radio News Service. He was a music journalist in California before making the jump to politics. Justin was a member of UC Merced’s founding class and graduated with a degree in History and minors in American Studies and Philosophy. He is the lead singer of the punk rock band Hogfather.”

Unlike those rock-ribbed conservatives Mitt "RomneyCare" Romney or Gomer "Pardon me Guv'ner!" Huckleberry, right?!

Hey pissant --

Since you don't seem to care what cesspool you suck your anti-Palin bilge from, here's a helpful list of Keith Olbermann articles you can draw from. He's a venomous Palin hater like you, so you should feel right at home browsing his spew. Enjoy!

I can’t stand Dr. Laura but she did not call anyone the N word. She was talking with a young black caller about black “group think” and why it is OK for them to use the word and she doesn’t get offended. Sarah is not supporting what Dr. Laura said.

Sarah is brilliant!! Sorry, Pissant but she is.

America is making the argument with the 9/11 Victory Mosque that Yes, they have a right to build it but SHOULD they and the left completely scoffs at that argument. They insist it is all about rights.

Sarah makes a simple tweet about Dr. Laura.

Now the left is making the argument that Yes, Dr. Laura has the right to say it but SHOULD she???

Hmmmmmmm, see the problem?

Sarah knows exactly what she is doing. Sorry Pissant if this move was above you and other liberals heads.

I doubt those are your second or third choices, and they for damned sure aren’t mine.

We’ll see who has an inkling to run next year, and then I’ll solidify my stance behind one of them, providing they are who they say they are, and that’s a Conservative.

Norman,

What about Mrs Palin's tweet confounds you? Though it's clear enough I realize that one with your mental acumen might not comprehend it.
You're not drinking, (again), are you?

POSSESSED!

From the comments:

Excessive abbreviations? On Twitter? Heaven forfend! The Hill pulled the same thing on a Palin tweet – snarkily trying to imply she was incapable of writing intelligibly just because she was abbreviating to get in under the 140 character limit.In fact, all it does is just make you guys look silly and I’m not even a member of the Church of Palin.

Wondrous wordsmith Gov. Sarah Palin continues to color our colloquy & invigorate our vernacular. Her tantalizing Tweets are not “confusing” to the enlightened & the initiated.

Which is greater?

The episodes of Bewitched that Gladys appeared in?

- or -

the total votes Duncan Hunter received in the '08 GOP primaries?

couple differences.. dr laura isn’t in office. palin condemned the use of “retard” by *everyone.* dr laura was pointing out that it’s blatant racism that one group of people can use a word but others are forbidden.

i don’t much like dr laura or ms palin, but they’re right on this one.

The former governor’s response is a little confusing

Yeah, those darn kids with their hula hoops, rock n' roll, and abbreviated texts! I just don't understand what's gotten into 'em these days!

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.
