Sarah Palin rips Chris Matthews as a perennial hypocrite over “shuck and jive” criticism
The Right Scoop ^ | October 24th, 2012

Posted on 10/25/2012 6:25:57 AM PDT by Snuph

Go Sarah Go!

For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase “shuck and jive” – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.

I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.

The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: “May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it.”

Sure enough, Chris Matthews took the bait.

And we were assured Sarah Palin was so dumb, media needed to go through her garbage to make sure “whoknowswhat”.

Again, I am awestruck by Ms. Palin’s quick wit and sharp response. She is still one of the most gifted politicans on the planet.

And Sarah! I promise to give up eating my Eskimo Pies. Anything for you!

Somehow, I don’t think Palin would have used a potentially loaded expression like “shuck and jive” without predicting the response and researching who would be led into a trap.

Double-whammy — she gets her article more exposure (so that more people read the point she’s really trying to make) and she gets to tie up the holier-than-thou pundits in knots.

I think you’re right.

What she just did was rip another piece off the expired race card.

It is time for anyone in politics, with 1/2 a brain to to come out publicly and denounce this slobering A-hole Mathews and all his liberal race baiting pals at MSNBC.
I believe Saraha P is a start.

I actually attened a music rehearsal once, when, upon entering the hall, I heard the keyboardist telling the singer that MSNBC was the most intelligent news on TV. He said he should watch it because he learned something new every night. I was out of that band two months later.

Not being a pschychiatrist, I do not know the name for Chris Mathews sickness, but he is one sick puppy.

He is certifiably insane.

Why would a reputable supposedly neutral news agency hire such a person as their representative.

Well: I guess I answered my own question.

MSNBC is not reputable, not Neutral, and not a news agency.
Just a part of the DNC propaganda industry.

It would appear that the label of “Racist,” having been invoked indiscriminately since before the Immaculation, is losing a bit of its sting.

” - - - Trump was playing on racism today with his ridiculous stunt demanding Obama’s college transcripts.”

HUH?

The next thing will be to blame Global Warming on racism.

Looks like the Liberals are getting desperate!

I think State would give Sarah Palin more exposure to the American people so that Sarah could make a run for president in the future.

And don’t you think Palin would do great in that role? Can you imagine her scolding the Muslims?

Have you noticed that Obama’s Lap-Dog Crissy Matthews “goes through the roof” each time someone tells the TRUTH about Obama?

These five are for you Crissy:
“Obama’s shuck and jive ends with Benghazi lies.”
“Obama’s shuck and jive ends with Benghazi lies.”
“Obama’s shuck and jive ends with Benghazi lies.”
“Obama’s shuck and jive ends with Benghazi lies.”
“Obama’s shuck and jive ends with Benghazi lies.”
