Sarah Palin Believes the Media Attacked Rand Paul to get to her

Even a question about Rand Paul is all about Sarah

On the debut of the Fox Business program Freedom Watch today, Rand Paul emerged from hiding today long enough to hear Sarah Palin tell him, “Yeah, it’s a double edged sword isn’t it, if my name gets attached to your candidacy, and here you are being misconstrued by the lamestream media, and they take things out of context.”

Here is the video courtesy of Media Matters:

When asked why she endorsed Paul, Palin said, “Yeah, it’s a double edged sword isn’t it, if my name gets attached to your candidacy, and here you are being misconstrued by the lamestream media, and they take things out of context, when you want the opportunity to further explain your positions, and when I’ve seen this lately I wanted to say welcome to my world, Rand. Bless, your heart, you’re doing great, and he’s willing to put it all on the line, Judge that is why I expect and endorse Rand Paul. He, his Libertarian views too which I so respect are in great contrast to the overreach intrusive government that is being shoved down our throat right now by the Obama administration. We need more Rand Paul’s of the world willing to put it all on the line, and cast a vote to put us back on the right track to protect our Constitution.”

According to Palin, it’s the media’s fault that she and Rand can’t answer the most basic questions. It is not their fault that they confuse ideology positions on issues. They both need to learn ideology is not a substitute for knowledge about specific issues, but only to an egomaniac like Palin, could Rand Paul’s gaffes be construed as a media attack against her. To her even, Rand Paul’s implosion is a sign that they are out to get her.

Notice that the self proclaimed leader of the Tea Party movement respects Rand Paul’s Libertarian views, but did not say that she agreed with them, or that she felt the same way. The original Tea Party movement was begun by Ron Paul supporters during the 2008 primary campaign. Its basis was Libertarian, but somehow this new GOP/corporate Tea Party movement respects views, but does not endorse them. This is more evidence that Palin has leeched on to a movement whose beliefs she does not share.

By the way, how exactly is Rand Paul going to protect the Constitution? Is going to attack government overreach by trying to repeal the parts of the Civil Rights Act that apply to the private sector, or is going to be satisfied with taking away the rights of the disabled by repealing the Americans with Disabilities Act? There is this myth that Palin keeps floating about the overreach of the Obama administration, but she never can name a single new program that is an example of this overreach.

Palin, and other Republicans, want to have it both ways. They want to blast Obama for there not being enough federal intervention in the Gulf, while at the same time they cry foul over the “big government” that his administration represents. Sarah Palin seemed clueless about Rand Paul’s actual beliefs, so did what she does best, she made the answer about her. In one minute and three seconds, she managed to remind America why she should be let anywhere near close to the White House. She is a big time celebrity, but a small time political talent.

  1. I smell MsPalin’s rabid racism seeping out through her forked tongue. She tends to always support individuals who are rabidly racist and incredibly tone deaf and out of touch.

    Rand Paul opened his big mouth and stuck his racist foot right into it. Rather than even trying to walk it back he proceeded to once again open his mouth and say something even worse.

    His mouth and his brain have never learned to work together. How he got through Medical School is a mystery. Then again, his father (was that Rue Paul????) is another Old School hater. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree…

  2. She is always injecting herself into issues that are not remotely about her. What’s even funnier is that she gets this inflated sense of her own importance from people who say things like her endorsement is the Midas touch. It just so happens that she endorses people who are already way ahead anyway.

    Rand Paul has no one to blame but himself that he is a big doofus. Just the same, I say let him keep talking and digging an even bigger hole for himself. Palin’s narcissism will not permit her to refrain from making everything about her, because she will say and do anything to stay “relevant.” She is every bit as clueless and tone-deaf as he, and that’s why she can relate to him. If the GOP wants to be respected again, they need to kick ignoramuses like these two to the curb.

  3. When did Sarah ever answer questions about her stands? In the presidential debates she had a list of items she would not respond to. And she wanted to be elected? I would have picked alice cooper over her any day.

    I agree she is an egomaniac, her reactions to the writer moving in next door to the house in Alaske proves that

  4. @Shiva,

    She also shows one of the biggest flaws in egomaniacs, which is her lack of self-awareness. She is unable to admit that she played just as big a role as McCain did in their defeat of 2008. With their combined negativity and fearmongering, along with her unprecedented ignorance about national and world issues, they went down in inevitable defeat. McCain actually thought women were stupid enough to go for another female because of disappointment that Hillary Clinton, regardless of her staggering cluelessness.

    And to this day, President Obama’s detractors continue to deride his experience as a community organizer, as if that were the sum total of his achievements before being elected as president. Aside from the fact that the snide remarks about community organizers are patronizing and ignorant,
    these remarks also show that the people who make them are still stuck in 2008. Even 17 months as president go light years beyond being not only
    a community organizer, but also a state senator and a U.S. senator. I suspect they will still be echoing this nonsense in 2012 and beyond, while extolling the Quitter Queen’s half-term as governor and mayor of small Wasilla.
