I adore this story that’s goin’ around that Failed Vice-Presidential Candidate Prudence Palin is whining about “media bias.” In fact, I pretty much adore it when any conservagoat whines about “media bias” because they have no fucking clue what that even is. It appeals strongly to the dildo-heads, but, to the rest of us Amurkans, they’d make more sense if they were tilting back their heads and clucking.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is questioning whether Caroline Kennedy is getting better treatment from the press in her bid for a Senate seat from New York than the battering she says she received as John McCain’s running mate on the Republican presidential ticket.
“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” Palin told conservative radio talk-show host and filmmaker John Ziegler. Clips from Ziegler’s interview were posted on YouTube this week.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be,” Palin said.
Palin is either being disingenuous or wholly stupid. There are some severe differences between Palin and Kennedy. For starters, Caroline Kennedy ISN’T RUNNING FOR VICE-PRESIDENT, YOU DOLT! That’s not to say that the job she’s under consideration for is chopped liver. But to compare the Presidential Race To Replace Chimpy McCokespoon to an appointment to finish a Senate term, and to discount the gravity of the presidential race versus that of such an appointment, well, that’s just plain bizarre.
And, hey, Prudence! Believe me, nobody had to scrutinize you, sweetheart. It’s not scrutiny when you apparently can’t name a single news periocial, when you can’t name a single Supreme Court decision, when you claim foreign policy experience based on your home town’s proximity to Siberia, when you vacantly stand in front of a camera answering a reporter’s vapid question while a turkey slaughter is taking place right behind you. No, Prudence, that ain’t scrutiny. That’s you. Nobody had to dig for that shit. You gave it willingly.
And, thanks for that, by the way.
But my gods, you mouth-breathing troglodyte: Do You Even Know What The Word “Scrutiny” MEANS? Trust me, dum-dum; you were not under it. You didn’t need to be. You did that all by yourself. Moron.
