Sarah Palin took to Facebook Tuesday night to call on folks to unite behind Donald Trump. Significantly, she wants “GOP and independents and smart Democrats” to join her in making America great again. This is the same Sarah Palin who thinks she is smarter than 97 percent of climate scientists.
“To all of you who have believed in making a real difference in our politics and in the way things have been done in the past that have put America in a pretty precarious position. Thank you so much for supporting Trump and believing in this idea of being able to make America great again. We’re finally on the road to do so, but we do have to unite first. So GOP and independents and smart Democrats, truly it is time to come together, pull together — remember that united we will stand, our country will stand united.
“Divided, we’re going to fall. So now, after participating in some really healthy, kind of arduous competition, and now, more than ever, it’s time to come together and put some differences aside. Stand on principle, that principle that, yeah, we have opportunity to make America great again. We’ve needed a revolution, and we’ve found our revolutionary. So thanks for all your hard work. Congratulations, Donald J. Trump — and here we go, on the road to make America great again.”
That’s another Palinesque mouthful again. Turning what is essentially one run-on sentence into paragraphs is no easy task. Nor is interpreting what exactly it is she is trying to say. However, we can make an informed guess.
Palin’s scoffing rejection of climate scientists shows what her true feelings are concerning smart people. She doesn’t like them. She doesn’t want them. This is not a call for smart Democrats but for dumb Democrats, because only dumb anybody will support Donald Trump, or have anything at all to do with the word-salad machine that is Sarah Palin.
