Palinism of the Day: The Spending Cuts of the Bailout Plan?

“Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh — it’s got to be all about job creation too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade, we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, um, scary thing, but 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.”

– Sarah Palin, trying to explain to Katie Couric why giving Wall Street investment companies a 700 billion dollar government handout is a better idea than giving that money to middle class Americans

I was going to try to explain how the bailout plan is completely unrelated to health care reform, and isn’t a spending cut, and all that, but then I noticed that Sarah Palin has cute little glasses and a signature hair style, and the hypno-rays emitted by Palin’s breath of “fresh air” put me in a numb trance once more.

    I loved Couric’s steel eyed stare in the interview. Couric obviously would be a better choice for VP than Sarah Palin. I don’t like Palin’s politics and her religion scares the heebee geebees out of me. And from the Couric interview she is CLEARLY NOT QUALIFIED. Unfortunately there is this charm about her that fools people. Reminds me a story about a guy (they called him Kinky for anyone who remembers him) that went to my high school. He picked up some woman hitch hiking. Then he thought he was going to get it on with her back at his place. When they got there she pulled out a gun and blew him away (may he rest in peace) then she ransacked the place. Lesson learned: looks and charm can be very deceiving.

    OMG! I’m….nearly speachless, as she should have been. I admit she has charm, but is that all we are looking for in a leader these days? Of course, after eight years of a guy who can’t speak English, what else is to be expected from the Republicans…or us for electing them.

    My saving grace? I didn’t vote for him!

  • i think Sarah Palin would make much more sense to the people who mock her if they could only experience the laying on of hands by rev. Muthee. with the laying on of hands, we could understand that her charm is what this country needs. she was so cute talking about Putin up in the air. cute as a button. her ability to communicate about national affairs has no real relevance because her duties will matter most on the home front. maybe, just maybe, she thinks there are 30 million witches or so right here in America; all she needs is a posse to go digging through medical records

    I just had to get on Katie Couric’s site and leave a comment about her incredible self-restraint! Personally, I would have kicked Palin when she “tested the wind,” but Katie had such self-control. I agree that Katie would make a much better VP choice and got onto McShame’s site to tell him so. I just couldn’t hold back any longer. I have to go campaign for Obama now!

    ROFL… She is brilliant, imagine 4 more years of political comedy performed by our own VP… Priceless (actually its worth an estimated 482 billion deficit just for 2008)

    Sarah Palin and George W. Bush should start a comedy tour: “The Decider and the Hockey Mom” LOL

    Palin is a Pathetic choice for VP. That’s all I have to say.
