Sarah Palin's mind-bogglingly incoherent immigration reform critique
Yahoo! News / The Week ^ | June 25, 2013 | Jeb Golinkin, Frum Forum

Posted on 06/25/2013 6:30:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Perhaps we should no longer be surprised when the former half-term Alaska governor jabs at GOP colleagues weighs in on public policy. And yet...

It's easy and tiresome to trash Sarah Palin as an uneducated embarrassment to the Republican Party (a party of which I am a member). But when the great anti-intellectual takes ridiculously simple-minded shots at Marco Rubio for supporting immigration reform, something needs to be said.

The Sunshine State News asked the former Alaska governor to comment on immigration reform. She took the opportunity to take a giant swing at Marco Rubio:

Just like they did with ObamaCare, some in Congress intend to "Pelosi" the amnesty bill. They'll pass it in order to find out what's in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable ObamaCare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-pound disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans. [Sunshine State News] Let's take this particular pearl of vapid nonsense sentence by sentence. Right off the bat, Palin manages to set forth two incompatible premises in the same sentence. Her reference to "some in Congress" is clearly a shot at the Republicans looking to push the bill through, the most prominent being a young Tea Party star named Marco Rubio. Yet in taking that shot, Palin makes clear that immigration reform is not at all like ObamaCare in that ObamaCare was defined by the complete and total absence of bipartisan compromise, even during the negotiation phase. Immigration reform was heavily shaped by Republicans and is going to pass (assuming it passes) with multiple Republican votes.

Palin then claims that immigration reform is like ObamaCare because it is expensive. CBO actually disagrees with Palin on this particular point....

that was the sophomoric headline as it actually appeared on Yahoo!, the new-fangled business with the idiotic name that fancies itself a news force. And lo, there is the sophomoric femme that penned it.

I think he’s misunderestimating her. Meanwhile, he’s exhibiting his own stupidity in his analysis of the first sentence. She explains that to “pelosi” a bill is to pass it to find out what’s in it.IT has nothing to do with whether it’s bipartisan or not.

You aren’t allowed to bitch slap this little dumbed-down child.....you might hurt his wittle self-esteem, don’t you know?

This little boy might run home and smash all of his participation trophies, and then tear up all the gold stars his indoctrinators gave him in kindergarten just for showing up and taking a dump.

Seriously, this child isn’t qualified to shine Sarah Palin’s shoes.

Surprised he didn't bring up her "retarded son" in the first sentence as well. Bill Maher would have.

Just like we should not be surprised when some libtard cannot even construct a gramatically correct first sentence for his article: Perhaps we should no longer be surprised when the former half-term Alaska governor jabs at GOP colleagues weighs in on public policy. Fail.

The problem with Obamacare was not that it was bi-partisan. It was simply terrible policy. It was also hacked together to ram through the Senate instead of worked out to make the law reform the system. The goal was never to fix anything, just like this amnesty does not aim to address the key problems. Because Rubio abandoned his voters and joined on to a Democratic wish list does not make this bi-partisan.

When his first sentence rounds 32 months down to 24, you have a pretty good clue as to the integrity of the writing.

Obamacare required the stealing of two seats to get the 60 Democrat senators necessary to pass it (Al Franken’s seat and the changing of the laws in Massachusetts after Ted Kennedy’s death to permit the governor to appoint his Democrat replacement).

Additionally it required the buying off of other Democrat Senators with kickbacks.

And promises about what it would or would not do were lies.

The only way to prevent something is to include it in the language of the bill as being prohibited.
