Skip to comments.Sarah Palinís confusing tweet (more inanity)
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 hosts repeated use of the n-word.
The tweet reads: Dr.Laura:dont retreat reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silenceisnt American,not fair)
The former governors 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 doesnt realize is that the First Amendment is a two-way street. Yes, you can express yourself, but you shouldnt cry wolf when somebody disagrees with what you or tells you to be quiet.

Actually, she is the best shot we have!
Amazing how your credibility is disintegrating right before our very eyes.
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?!
I miss that old girl.
Dr S is not a gov’t official/public servant, Mr E is.
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.
Hatred does that to people. A shame to watch it happen to a fellow FReeper
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?
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 Im 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.
I think it’s gone. He’s possessed.
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.
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!
She has to comment on every damn thing under the sun.
AND THOSE WITH AVERAGE INTELLIGENCE!!
No she is not. Based on what you made her the best shot for us? Because a bunch of bloggers on Free Republic said so?
And pissant, living up to it's screen name, is compelled to post about it.
And how are you going to dress up your life-size inflatable Sarah Palin doll tonight, Pissant? In a baby doll?
Just like with Obama, Sarah Palin lives rent free in Pissant’s head. What a loser!!!
If this is what she wrote, then it appears neither Palin or this writer understand the 1st Amendment.
The 1st Amendment prohibits GOVERNMENT from abridging free speech or free excercise of religion. Unless or until a GOVERNMENT ENTITY tries to inhibit or prohibit free speech, there is no Constitutional issue.
As far as I know, no government entity tried to thwart ‘Dr. Laura’s’ free speech. This is just like the Dixie Chicks and Tim Robbins claims that boycotting them constitutes a breach of their 1st Amendment rights.
(I hope this is not true. I would have hoped Sarah Palin would not fall into this ignorance trap about the 1st Amendment).
pissant is commenting on every Palin comment under the sun... irony, eh?
...unless of course you wouldn't mind a psychopath looking in your windows at night.
He’s PISSessed. He and his cackle of rads.
Pissant is taking his marching orders to slander Mrs. Palin from any and all liberal dirtbags with anti-conservatives values.
I wonder - like so many others - what mean and ugly things that mean and ugly women did to poor pissy as a child.
Damn ace, how far up your rectum did you have to reach to pull that vague reference?
If I may be so bold to suggest, maybe you should try meeting women and going out with them.....There's nothing to fear......Really.....They can be great fun.
I appreciate your note to Duncan Hunter because he is good people and he can’t help what types of groupies he has.
From what I’ve seen “tweets” are leading us into grammatical armageddon!
In forty years I don’t think anyone will know how to spell. But God bless Sarah, she’s breaking new ground.
Don’t know if I like it or not, but she’s breaking it. Besides, in forty years my generation won’t be running the thing.
You don’t know what a moderate is.
I miss Samantha Stevens even more.
The Daily Caller is a conservative site, BTW.
From 1974 to 1976, Ronald Reagan wrote and delivered over 1,000 radio addresses that clarified his vision for America. -- Source:Reagan Radio.com
No, the Daily Caller is an establishment sight. Tucker fantasizes about being conservative but he is a long-time Washington insider.

He should be fired for being an out-of-the-closet Obamist, but hey.
I personally use the word "retard" frequently because I can't find a better one to use with respect to Obama supporters, I'm sorry.
I never use the word with respect to the mentally challenged except when they come out and start trying to explain their support for Obama. Then its unavoidable, but they brought it on themselves.
