Skip to comments.DID SARAH PALIN REALLY SAY THE 'C' WORD? (Cajones)
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."

She DID say it, and I APPLAUDED in complete agreement with her...media, go suck an egg.
I’ve always known the Marxist in Chief has no balls..about damn time someone go on TV and actually say it. BRAVO Sarah..BRAVO
Of course she said it, she’s not in the republican leadership!
Obama...go suck...nevermind...he doesn’t need my encouragement.
(There putting that old canard to good use in a double recycle bin).
She said it on the Chris Wallace show today too!
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.
IMO, America (real Americans; not the looters) is ready to roll up its sleeves and get busy righting the country. There is no more time for mealy mouthed politicians messing about with more social experiments.
The emperor has no balls and he's just been called on it.
Yep I just heard it. The video of the interview has been posted online. Just watch the media get all wee wee’d up over this LOL I can’t wait. Get the popcorn. How is Obama gonna prove he has balls, is he gonna pull down his pants and prove it..God I hope not..
Don't be a Jackass, lots of people use the Spanish word instead of saying balls. What a frickin' jerk you are.
La palabra esta “cojones”.
If you have not heard her actually comment on this; it just played again here on the East Coast on FNC...It's so "matter of factly" and spoken like many of us would in casual conversation.
no habla espanol, but is it “cojones” or “cajones?”
Since when did “cojones” become the C word? I thought that referred to an offensive term for - er - a part of the female anatomy.
I suppose she could have said balls rather than cojones; does that make it the B word?
The only thing I don’t like is when people mis-spell it as cajones, which means either large boxes or crates or dresser drawers...
For you folks in Rio Linda, it means “balls”.
She just destroyed multiple fronts of the left.
Do you have any rational adult commentary to offer or is this sort of personal attack childishness all your intellect is capable of producing?
Sad but very true.
I hope she did say it. I started using that expression about Gore when Dems tried playing “gravitas” against W.
So, my question still stands why Spanish and not English, hijo de p... maricon.
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.
If you put it on a sign do it “C. O. JONES” ~
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.
She needs to stick to the one language she knows.
FR needs an ignore button for people like you.
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...).
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 dont object to the Word cajones since that means box.
So I guess she was saying he didnt have boxes. LOL!!!!
See my post #15. It’s cojones (with an o).
LOL! Those would be huevos. Somebody had to get those things off of him. What an idiot he is.
How did you manage to get a law degree and still remain this wonderfully ignorant of basic public speaking skills?
An ignore button? Heck with that no one would read my posts.
“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 :)
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.
Sounds like something she would say. She has a habit of telling the truth.
If you want to see what Palin was talking about, go to Drudge and look at the pic of Obama. He looks so skinny, shrimpy, wimpy and nerdy, I didn’t even recognize him. He is one of the least masculine people I have ever seen. On the View. Whoopi looked 10x as masculine, no exaggeration.
I have one word to describe your post: merde.
I don’t use coño. I can’t get myself to use that word. “Ajo” or “caramba” are as far as I go. Oh, sometimes “que vaina” slips out, but that is at home.
I applaud her for saying 0bama has no cajones (which of course is the truth — Michelle has that boy’s little marbles in a lockbox), but I personally prefer using the word “spine” or “guts” to describe gutsy females (like Brewer).
And your question is still as stupid as it was the first time around, and I answered it. The answer? Once again, many people use the spanish term for balls, no special reason. BTW, it was not disgusting for her to use the term it is disgusting for Bozo to ignore the border and to refuse to enforce the law and, yes, Palin is correct, Bozo has no balls or spine for that matter.
Really guy? Then why were those “cube” fighter pilots keep chattering on about “boxes”. Quit playing spelling games and advocating for your linguistic bretheren, and join the American side in this fight.
If our nations laws aren’t OPEN SEASON for us to use their language and traditions any way we please. Thats the deal hijo, guess they forgot to read that?
Now we are into some kind of French.
The Spanish word is so much better. It has a better ring to it.
Because if they attack her over this, they're anti-Hispanic!
