Sarah Palin hit a new low even for her today, by apparently not knowing what the nuclear option is during an interview on Fox News Sunday.
Well, there are a lot of wild outside the mainstream nominees and pals of Barack Obama that he wants to see help him usher in an agenda to transform America, so that is one thing that Congress has done right, and that is oppose some of these nominees. As for this rule change that some people are calling the nuclear option under Senate rules, you know, I guarantee this week, Thanksgiving dinner, people sitting around their tables, we’re not going to be talking about the president blessing this thwarting of the balance of power in Congress with new Senate rules called the nuclear option.
People are going to be talking about our failed big government policies that will bankrupt this country, so this distraction, this new talking point in the media, and with Congress, with Senators and with the president blessing this action. It’s a distraction. It’s a lot of double standard and Democrat hypocrisy, because just a few years ago they so anti antinuclear option. They were against thought of Republicans ever considering changing these rules, and yet now it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
American people they don’t care about distractions like that. There not in that inside baseball, Senate rules stuff. They want government to be back on our side. They want it to get out of our lives, and uh, in order to do that we need those who will not fundamentally transform America, but will fundamentally restore what’s right about America. We do that by having good judicial nominees, and nominees in these regulatory agencies and elsewhere. So this new rule change, it stinks.
I don’t think Palin knows exactly what the nuclear option is. She seems to know that it was a rules change, and that it impacts nominees, but the president had nothing to do with the nuclear option. The president didn’t get to vote on it, or have a say in the change. Palin seemed to be suggesting that the nuclear option was some kind of Obama conspiracy to distract America.
Palin also claimed that Congress was involved in the nuclear option. The nuclear option had nothing to do with the House. When she was the Republican vice presidential nominee, Palin claimed that the vice president ran the Senate, so her statements today aren’t a surprise.
You can tell that Palin was on unstable ground because she kept repeating the fact that this was a rule change in the Senate as she searched her mind for 2008 talking points to link the nuclear option to.
She has no clue, which is why she should never be asked her opinion on anything. Sarah Palin doesn’t follow politics, but the media keeps propping her up and asking her for an opinion about things that she knows nothing about.
If Sarah Palin was capable of humiliation and embarrassment, she should be feeling those emotions right now. However, Palin is a narcissist who continues to defend her incorrect definition of slavery. Sarah Palin represents the stupidity of the Republican Party. She is an embarrassment who should not be given one second of airtime anywhere.
The media needs to be held accountable for giving her attention. The best way to do that is to call out her lack of knowledge every time they give her airtime. Her ignorance needs to be reflected back on the media.
Joe Lieberman could have been vice president too, but no one is asking him for his opinion on anything. It is time for the Palin madness to stop.
