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

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."

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.
