Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's mind-bogglingly incoherent immigration reform critique

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.
This mouth is just one reason I no longer count myself a GOP supporter.
Does this boy have hair-one between his legs? Yeah, he has experience and knowledge to make his assessments. He needs to be bitch-slapped until he learns.
Hahahaha!!!!! A Frum protégé?
Little pathetic Jeb works with Frum, the proven loser
and rabid antiPalin proRomney-backstabber.
Frum and his BF will get the respect they deserve.
Where do I go to get the needle on my Gaydar repaired. Because it just snapped.
Those links aren’t playing nice on my droid.
His opinion almost carries the same weight as Meghan McCain’s.
Barney Frank page???
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.
Go back to pre-school, Sonny.
That is what happens when the educated wanna be ruling class are told what to think instead of how to think.
Was he even old enough to vote in 2008???
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.
He was still nursing in 2008.
This is a picture of the little fag?? He is still wet behind the ears. The little turd claims to be Republican, Yeah< Like McCain is a Republican. Like Graham is a Republican.
He is right something does need to be aid.
SARAH IS RIGHT. There, I said it.
Actually I remember the grabass pic of Frank and the boytoy DID sorta look like this ‘guy’IIRC...
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.
Can I kick him in the balls like a fairy?
(1) Is he through puberty yet?
(2) "FrumForum"? Is he aware that David Frum is 100% against the amnesty bill?
When his first sentence rounds 32 months down to 24, you have a pretty good clue as to the integrity of the writing.
Jeb Golinkin is a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and writes about U.S. politics and policy for TheWeek.com. From 2008 to 2011, he served as an editor and reporter for Frum Forum/New Majority. Email him at email@example.com
Looking at the byline in the picture, I got the impression this boy was lighting cars on fire in LA.
what a dupe
You’re assuming the kid has a pair.....I’m not so sure.
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.
We are on the same page FRiend. :)
Perhaps we should no longer be surprised when the former half-term Alaska governor jabs at GOP colleagues and? or? by weighing in on?weighs in on public policy.
Sheesh...are guys like this the reason why we’re going to have to build special bathrooms everywhere now?
I think the poster is referring to Palin...
Hey, is that idiot about ten years old?
It's easy and tiresome to trash Sarah Palin as an uneducated embarrassment to the Republican Party (the second ridiculously simple-minded shot at Sarah Palin by the author)...(a party of which I am a member). But when the great anti-intellectual (the third ridiculously simple-minded shot at Sarah Palin by the author) takes ridiculously simple-minded shots (the fourth ridiculously simple-minded shot at Sarah Palin by the author) at Marco Rubio for supporting immigration reform, something needs to be said.
Dang, four ridiculously simple-minded shots at Sarah Palin by the author in two paragraphs, who's calling whom the simple-minded one here?
That’s Robbie from My Three Sons.
Something needed to be said...it was said....and now Marco will be primaried and Palined in FL.

Another bout of jealousy from the meow section. A piffle upon you jebbie dear for such a totally rude, intolerant and insensitive spew. Just disgusting...
Yeah, and what needs to be said is that Palin is right and you Mr. Moderate Mouthpiece is what is wrong with the Stupid Party.
I genuinely believe the Republican Party is finished.
The boy is cute, but he certainly doesn’t understand how to analyze human speech.
