6-23: Palin Begets Idiocy

[I write about politics because of the direct link I see between the words and actions of politicians and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. America’s political class manipulates our military as though they were pawns in a global game of chess. To them, PTSD is merely an unfortunate cost of war.]

President Obama visited Orlando to lend whatever support he could to those suffering. This is what Sarah Palin tweeted about the visit.

OBAMA IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID

Enough is enough, Mr. President. There’s no “due respect” due you after pulling this stunt.

If the demented Orlando terrorist doesn’t represent all Islamic followers, then why do you insinuate he represents all gun owners?

And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people who didn’t do it?

Yes, it’s a special kind of stupid to demand we explain ourselves. But if you really want them, get ready for our explanations. Here’s mine:

– Sarah Palin

Where to start? Maybe Sally Fields’ line as Forrest Gump’s mother: “Stupid is as stupid does.” (I never understood that one either.) The rumor goes that a lot of drinking goes on in Alaska, maybe that’s the explanation. For now, let’s try to take her at her word.

OBAMA IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID / Palin adds dumb and dumber and comes up with dumbest.

Enough is enough, Mr. President. There’s no “due respect” due you after pulling this stunt. / Enough is enough, Madame Almost One-Term Governor. The biggest stunt you ever pulled was running for the vice presidency of the United States. I wonder if the sycophants who follow you on social media ever stop to think hard about what the country–and the world–would be like if you had won the election. No  respect, no respect at all.

If the demented Orlando terrorist doesn’t represent all Islamic followers, then why do you insinuate he represents all gun owners? / I heard no such insinuation. Just because you say it, does not make it so. Very few gun owners own assault rifles. Do you? Why? Are you representative of “all gun owners”? You seem to think so.

And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people who didn’t do it? / I suppose, as usual, you are talking about “Second Amendment rights.” I think you bring up this fatuous argument because you know that if a law is ever passed to restrict ownership of firearms of the mentally unstable, you would be reduced to shooting water pistols in your spacious back yard. Your words on this issue over the years have belied any innocence you may have ever had.

Yes, it’s a special kind of stupid to demand we explain ourselves. But if you really want them, get ready for our explanations. Here’s mine: / Yes, it’s a special kind of stupid to try to stay relevant with irresponsible, incendiary rants. Besides yourself, of course, those who care about your thoughts on serious events of the day are scary people.

– Sarah Palin / Debbie Downer

I resist writing about Sarah Palin and her ilk because she and they resemble the Kardashians and their ilk; they are all famous for being famous, not for making any meaningful contribution to the public discourse. And it is so, so frightening to think of a McCain/Palin combination in the Executive branch. We have had other wingnuts run for high office, Michele Bachman comes immediately to mind, but Palin came the closest to achieving it. Ouch!

How can the rest of the world look at us seriously when the likes of Palin beget the likes of Donald Trump. And whom is he going to pick as a running mate? I hear there is a maverick who does not want to go back to Alaska and has running mate credentials on her resume.
