Kathleen Parker Skewers Sarah Palin

One has had a crazy busy week, without time to catch up on Kathleen Parker's Republicans-eating-their-own piece on Sarah Palin until just now.

One does not like Kathleen Parker, btw, due mainly to her being a feeble right-wing shrieky sexist Schlafly-ian hack and perhaps for other reasons as well.

Nonetheless, this is fun.

Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there’s not much content there. Here’s but one example of many from her interview with Hannity: “Well, there is a danger in allowing some obsessive partisanship to get into the issue that we’re talking about today. And that’s something that John McCain, too, his track record, proving that he can work both sides of the aisle, he can surpass the partisanship that must be surpassed to deal with an issue like this.”

When Couric pointed to polls showing that the financial crisis had boosted Obama’s numbers, Palin blustered wordily: “I’m not looking at poll numbers. What I think Americans at the end of the day are going to be able to go back and look at track records and see who’s more apt to be talking about solutions and wishing for and hoping for solutions for some opportunity to change, and who’s actually done it?”

If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

Sarah Palin--out of touch with reality, so you don't have to be.
