Skip to comments.Attack on Michelle Obama shows Palin's ignorance of history

When I was 11, my father thought it was time to show my sister and me the nation's capital. I have only vague memories of that trip - the heat, the expanse of the White House's grounds, the Jefferson Memorial. I do remember we took Route 1 through Baltimore (no I-95 yet) and it was there that I saw my first sign with the word "colored" on it - a rooming house, I think. This was 1952, and the United States was an apartheid nation. It is Sarah Palin who brings back these memories. In her new book, she reportedly takes Michelle Obama to task for her supposedly infamous remark from the 2008 campaign: "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback." Instantly, Republicans pounced. Among the first to do so was Cindy McCain, who said, "I have and always will be proud of my country." It was a cheap shot, but her husband's selection of Palin for the ticket and plenty of cheap shots from Palin("death panels," etc.) were yet to come.

Can you tell us why should we feel better? I can’t get myself to read any more of this dumb article.
“Sarah Palin teases that she might run for president. But she is unqualified - not just in the (let me count the) usual ways, but because she does not know the country. She could not be the president of black America nor of Hispanic America.” The president of black America nor Hispanic America ?? I thought there was only one America.
What a load of crap!!!
0bama and his regime, including the wookie, have been hiding their hatred for this Country behind the race card for far too long! Time to call his bluff!
We have come a long way, now not only can a black man be President, but if you criticize him or his self indulgent wife it’s because you’re racist or ignorant of history.
Executive summary: because of 500 years of oppression the usual people are always right, no matter how stoopid what they've actually said may be, and the usual people are always wrong, no matter how much sense it might make.
Mr. Cohen seems unaware that in the world he desires, one ruled by Michelle’s ethos, he would be on the receiving end of her whip.

What's the matter Richard Cohen? No time to actually read the book yourself? Have to rely on the fax "report" eminating from Axelrod's War Room? No time to verify the quote yourself?
Sheesh! This guy calls himself a journalist?
No, there are 2. I know this because John Edwards told me so.
Probably no mention of how blacks sold each other into slavery.
This from Richard Cohen, who has loads of character. Just ask Devon Spurgeon? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/733615/posts
It’s official! Stupidity is NOT typical nor reserved for blondes like Cindy and Meghan McCain. Richard Cohen is not a blonde, but he would make a good one!!
--------------------- Read the g*d d*mm book if you want to report about it.
Otherwise , you're just gossip mongering
Or, he’s well aware of it and believes he either deserves it (or really wants it). I can’t see any of these three options indicating a healthy mind.
I read this under Eugene Robinson’s byline last night. Who actually wrote the first sentences.
Wanna piss off a liberal? Repeat back to them exactly the crap that comes out of their mouths. It makes their eyes bulge and hair stand on end.
"How DARE you take what I say literally!"
Well as near as I can, I'll try to sift through this steaming pile from the WaPoo. Seems like Sarah Palin isn't qualified to be President because unlike Barry and Moochelle she doesn't have sufficient appreciation of victimology. She has this backwards notion that this is a great country. See even though Hussein and the Wookie are "better educated" than 99.9% of all Americans, having gone through all the elite schools, and they're in the top 1% when it comes to net worth, they're still victims. As victims, they're more fit to govern us, the ignoramuses, who inhabit this country.
Anyway, that's as near as I can translate this mass of scribbling.
After the first couple of paragraphs my eyes glazed over.
Supposedly infamous remark? Nobody has challenged that report so far. You breaking some news here Dick? Or just breaking wind.
