DID SARAH PALIN REALLY SAY THE 'C' WORD? (Cajones)
WebToday ^ | 8-1-10 | WebToday

Posted on 08/01/2010 10:56:39 AM PDT by geraldmcg

I'm not sure if we can believe anything in The Washington Post but this one needs mentioning even if they fabricated the story since it has to do with actually making Sarah Palin look good.

What's wrong with this picture? Since when would the WaPo want to make a conservative like Palin look good under any circumstances?

Nonetheless, Matt DeLong of the Washington Post quoted Sarah Palin as saying Barack Obama lacks 'the cojones' to tackle immigration.

Here's the exact quote, copied and pasted from the WaPo story:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Sunday that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has "the cojones" that President Obama "does not have" to take on illegal immigration.

So, our conclusion on this matter is that although WaPo loves to trash Palin, this time they just couldn't resist putting in the Palin cojones quote, thus giving her a backhanded compliment.

By the way, the WaPo article ended with this just posted update:

Update: This may be the most high-profile political use of the word "cojones" by an American woman since then-U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Madeleine Albright famously said that Cuba's shooting down of planes flown by anti-Castro exiles was "not cojones" but "cowardice."

I remember when we used to use the term spineless, both gender neutral and to the point without coarsening public discourse. It’s annoying and disappointing, but God’s Name being used irreverently bothers me far more.

Palin and Brewer are two of very few in American politics today who are entitled to have their names and that word used in the same sentence.

I ask myself why she said the word in Spanish when it is just as disgusting and offensive in Spanish as the word is in English. Did she think it suddenly made it okay as long as it was not in English?

She needs to stick to the one language she knows.

FR needs an ignore button for people like you.

She could have said wevos (however eggs is spelled). Or how about these things I just cut off of Levi?

A language that uses coño (the real C word) as a routine expletive has different standards...this is less common in peninsula Spanish, but incredibly common in Latin American Spanish, and I've heard all sorts of people, including cultivated women, use it.

Still, I don't see anything wrong in Palin's use of cojones. Probably in English she would have said guts, but everybody in the US now knows what cojones are, so I don't think there's anything wrong with her using this word. It's just the American English language adopting another useful foreign loan word (like pizza...).

Because it fit the context of the statement she was making about AZ and the border. It is a little thing called "style".

We are sorry that such an abstract concept as style is so bewildering to your limited intellect.

Subtlety. Something I would think someone like you would get without having been told.

Oh, and another thing, looking at the title, “DID SARAH PALIN REALLY SAY THE ‘C’ WORD? (Cajones).” I don’t object to the Word “cajones” since that means “box.”

So I guess she was saying he didn’t have boxes. LOL!!!!

How did you manage to get a law degree and still remain this wonderfully ignorant of basic public speaking skills?

“She’s right on two fronts with this; she brings focus with a single word to the illegal problem in AZ. and the weakness problem in D.C.”

Michael, I am not going to argue that because I belive you are right. I will concede.

Perhaps she should have said “Gonads”... more gender neutral :)

She used the Spanish word on purpose and it's proper and amusing that she did.

Illegals coming over the border from Mexico speak Spanish. Her use of the word "cojones" shows ironic wit.

It would be hard to imagine someone incapable of figuring this out...and I didn't have to. There you are in all your splendor.

You attack Palin in previous threads for “having a screechy voice” and “plastic smile”. You call Obama “the Kenyan bastard”. Yet she uses a descriptive term that is in common usage in the United States to pithily describe his inaction on the border and you suddenly rediscover your delicacy, pronouncing it “disgusting and offensive”.

The English word “hypocrite” comes to mind. Try that one on for size. Fits you to a tee.

Those mexicans take over a chunk of our country, demonstrate openly in OUR streets, then that gives Sarah the right to say anything she wants *in spanish*. Common sense,, screw their sensitivities.
