Skip to comments.A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States (Sarah Palin Responds to 'North Korea' Media Smear)
Posted on 11/25/2010 5:17:31 PM PST by kristinn
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate from the FBIs 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israels. And lets face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I dont know what the term is in Austrian for that
Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didnt have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you cant remember hearing about them, thats because for the most part the media didnt consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe even news anchors.
Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldnt resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.
If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Becks radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of Dancing with the Stars to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)
Hope springs eternal as the poet says. Lets hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding Americas free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
- Sarah Palin
they just want to shut her up. nothing more nothing less.
“You are neither objective, sincere, or fair in this attack on Sarah.
Be gone Troll! “
LOL. You called me into this. If you think she can win by gaffing like Obama, that’s between you and your therapist.
I think that she has virtually no room to flub...just as Dan Quayle (potatoe) and Bush-41 (with the supermarket scanner) learned. And in BOTH cases, they were easily explainable - but the DAMAGE was done IMMEDIATELY, because they were set up to fail by the MSM. And neither EVER RECOVERED fully.
You will notice the vast gulf between how Palin operates and how Karl Rove and the blissfully incompetent Bush Public Relations operation during the Second Term? Notice a difference?
One fights back and NEVER lets a negative attack go unanswered, indeed, one uses lefty mistakes and miscues against its opponent, the other's meek responses gets buried in an avalanche of left wing propaganda.
You saw the difference today. ANY potential candidate who knows how to counterattack like that is showing you Presidential timbre.
Period. Accept no rationalizations.
Good stuff, gov! Now tell them the one about Biden mentioning Pres. Roosevelt going on tv to talk to folks about the stock market crash, and Katie Couric just sitting there lapping it up all serious.
That’s my favorite. ;)
>he cant possibly be as dumb as he sounds.
One word: “Sycacuse”
He’s dumber. No wonder those SAT scores are buried with Jimmy Hoffa.
That wasn't a gaffe, it was a moment of clarity.
All that’s missing is “My Muslim Faith”.
Look, the media is slavering to tear her apart. As soon as she says something like this, the LSM will leap on it.
"Are you willing to hold every potential GOP POTUS candidate to this same level of scrutiny?"
And if you allow it to work with Palin the LSM will do it with every GOP politician for ever and ever. They allowed it to work with bush so they moved to Palin and you can go back to Ike if you want.
The new media "ain't like the old" media, Bob. You don't even seem to understand that Sarah Palin used the new media (Facebook) to very effectively "refudiate" the Mouthpiece Media's propaganda and neutralize what could be called The Potatoe Effect.
Sweet stuff, Palin, you had me gasping for air by "in Austrian". Hysterically funny, and rapaciously bloodthirsty. In other words...
“The new media “ain’t like the old” media, Bob. “
The new media gave us McCain - it sure as heck wasn’t the base. I hope to God that they don’t saddle us with Romney this time...as they seem to be trying to do.
Wow. Just wow.
My muslim faith.
Yes, Christian faith.
I was trying to figure out why I and many others appreciate Sarah Palin more each and every day. The answer, or should I say answers, are as clear as the writing on Barak Obama’s Teleprompter.
She has guts. She enjoys life. She makes no apologies for who she is. She says what she means and she means what she says. She works hard and expects people around her to work just as hard. She is a Patriot. She came from obscurity and is shaking up the Political establishment on both sides of the aisle. Despite her financial success, she is still someone who realizes that this wonderful country is the only thing that has allowed her to succeed and will allow others to succeed as well.
Despite the attacks by people at each end of the Political spectrum who think she is just in it for the money, she continues to put herself out there as the target for those who not only hate her for whatever deluded reasons, but who also hate us with the same passion.
It's about time that our side responds forcefully and satirically to the baseless attacks launched against us. Perhaps Karl Rove can look to Governor Palin to see how he screwed up in not defending the Bush Administration from the last ten years of lies and deceit from the Liberal Media and their allies in the DemocRat Party.
She nails it again, this is an intelligent woman - a fact that Palin haters are going to have a hard time adjusting to. But adjust they will!
The new media gave us McCain? Whahhh? That makes no sense. The flawed primary sy$tem is what gave us McCain. (Only thing good about it is we got to know Sarah Palin.)
It's the old establishment, the bluebloods, the entrenched elite, the puppetmasters, with the assistance of the old media, who are trying to "saddle us with Romney". Sarah is bucking the system and the saddle.
