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