Sarah Palin's Inexplicable Sub-moronic Drivel

Bob Cesca wrote a post yesterday detailing the McCain-Palin campaign's strategy to win the election - blurt out random crap (great piece, recommend reading). It appears that last night, in her interview with Katie Couric, Gov. Palin put that strategy to work.

Kouric asks Palin about the bail out, and here is the response:

"Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions."


Um ...

Fucking what? What the hell did you just say woman? My brain actually got smaller after I heard this. Seriously, Sarah Palin spoke, I listened, my brain recoiled in horror and shrunk, and I am now dumber.

Let's break this audacious idiocy into more digestible parts.

"Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy."


What the fuck does that even mean? Call me crazy, but I think what people are concerned about as the economy bursts into flames and is promptly flushed down the toilet, are their mortgages foreclosing, or their credit rates spiking, or losing their retirement savings. Exactly how does health care reform (which to McCain means deregulating the industry - brilliant!) help fix the economy?

Second part of the answer:

"Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions."


Yes Sarah, job creation good, wildly dangerous spending bad. I think my favorite part about this sentence (using a very loose definition of the word sentence here) is that "reducing taxes ... has got to accompany tax reductions." I think it's fair to say you can't have one without the other.

In conclusion, if you do feel like killing off some brain cells sans alcohol or other illicit substances, go ahead and watch Gov. Palin's performance on CBS. The random, inexplicable and totally illogical babble should easily put you in an altered state - in which you will need to be should this woman win the vice presidency.
