Posted on 11/15/2010 5:57:16 PM PST by kingattax

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, whose relationship with fellow Alaska politician Sarah Palin has been rocky for years, said Monday that Palin lacks the "intellectual curiosity" to be president.

In an interview with CBS News' Katie Couric, Murkowski also said Palin does not have the "leadership qualities" to be commander in chief.

What the hell is “intellectual curiosity”? Sounds like a catch phrase libs use to try to sound superior but in reality, has little meaning.

Now matter how you spell it, it equals sleazebag.

“Palin lacks the “intellectual curiosity” to be president.”

Let’s see. Dimbulbkoski passed the bar exam on the fourth try, I think. She is a real intellect, that one.

The NRSC-Romney-Cornyn attacks on the GOP
appear to have paid off with backstabbing (again).

If the GOP does not rid itself of these saboteurs
it probably does not deserve to exist.

Can you imagine the uproar if conservatives were saying this about Hillary Clinton? Or Nanci? Or any female for that matter?

But it’s just perfectly fine for a woman to be constantly and neverendingly bashed so long as it is the left doing it.

Just goes to show... They demand we reach across the aisle in friendship, while they reach across and slap us upside the head.

Where have I heard that phrase before? Obviously, Big Lips Murkowski lacks the “intellectual acumen” to at least change the wording on her Democrat overlords’ talking points which have grown beyond stale.

Intellectual curiosity. Gee

I guess things like integrity, moral uprightness, patriotism, and strong belief in traditional American values of God, family, and country don't count for some of these bellicose pontificates.

Yup, but I guess it's OK to have a constitutionally unqualified person in the White House as long as he's got your version of intellectual curiosity...

Sadness.

Funny, that’s exactly the accusation leveled by the “anonymous White House insider” against PRESidENT B. Hussein Obama.
“Lacks intellectual curiosity...”

I wonder what Sara will do with that witch now?

That’s what the liberals said about W, too.

And Reagan. The "conservatives are stupid" meme has been around forever -- it's a lib favorite. Much easier to throw it out there than to debate the issues.

'Intellectual Curiosity'

Her use of it is "intellectual-elitist" code for "Progressive" which means worship of the State and kill the unborn , aged, and infirmed for economic reasons

I almost fell out of my chair when I read that headline. “Intellectual Curiosity” is one of those dead giveaway liberal maledictions when it is used to negatively describe someone other than themselves.

Seems to be the biggest putdown to a liberal...to knock someone else’s er...um...”lack of sophistication or intelligence”.

Heh, Masters of Projection, they are.

I think it has something to do with paying obeisance to The New York Times and Katy Couric, for that matter.

Here's a woman who wrote two best-selling books, stars in her own television series, and frames the entire country's public discourse using posts on her Facebook page.

Imagine what she could accomplish if she had "intellectual curiosity".

I seem to remember the establishment RINOs saying the same thing about Reagan back in `76 and again in `80. The leftists and the media took it from there after he won in `80.

What the hell is “intellectual curiosity”?

Intellectual curiosity is what you have if you simply nod your head in agreement when someone is said to not have intellectual curiosity.

Intellectual curiosity is not what you have if you ask what the hell intellectual curiosity actually is.

Katie knows what it means. So does Lisa.

Intellectual curiosity , for a lib, means experimenting with new learning experiences, like lesbianism.

They are correct. Sarah doesn't have that curiosity.

Katie and Lisa know that homosexuality is of prime importance in the entertainment, news, and political arenas, at least to the liberals and degenerate criminal politicians we have running our country currently.

Colin Powell endorses Obama

Obama displayed a steadiness, an intellectual curiosity, a depth of knowledge,” Powell said.
