Sarah Palin word salad: The bailout is about health care and the trade sector under the umbrella of job creation

Question: Why isn't it better, Gov. Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas, and groceries, [to] allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

Answer: "That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and getting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs 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."

Gov. Palin's just not flagging the molecules with that answer.

Was it just me, or was she babbling? Governor, I have some advice for you: speak in complete sentences, with one thought per sentence! I think she was channeling Dubya there...

At work, if one of the patients said something like that, we'd call the attending doctor to request psych and neuro consultations. Seriously.

Imagine Sarah Palin as president trying to decide whether to launch a nuclear attack or not.

Feel safe?

Astounding!
I think it's worthy to quote here this unique piece of surrealistic poetry:

"Of course, it's a fungible commodity and they don't flag, you know, the molecules, where it's going and where it's not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first. So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it's Americans who get stuck holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It's got to flow into our domestic markets first."

Sarah Palin, 2008

The $700billion bailout plan by the government and the way it has been taken by the Palin reflects the uncertainty on this issue. It is a known fact that the middle class American is hard pressed with the ailing economy of the country which is a direct result of a bad Bush administration. The republican know that in this election
it is not possible to win. So it looks like that Bush and
and his associate has hatched this plan with some other motive in mind.God save America.

SARAH PALIN, THE NEW PROFESSOR IRWIN COREY - THE WORLD'S FOREMOST AUTHORITY

... and what she learned from the "Peanuts" character, Charlie Brown.

Katie Couric was kind when she said that Sarah Palin was unresponsive to her interview questions and sticks, too much, to her talking points.

A more accurate assessment is that Sarah Palin is uninformed, hasn't a clue, and is bluffing her way through the question as if she were a school kid who didn't study for the exam. If you can't answer the question given to you, then answer your own question. For all you "Peanuts" fans, Charles Schulz had Charlie Brown demonstrate this test taking technique some years ago.

Does anyone remember the comedian, Professor Irwin Corey - The World's Foremost Authority? "He created a new style of doublespeak comedy; ... the professor would season his speech with many long and florid, but authentic, words. The professor would then launch into nonsensical observations about anything under the sun, but seldom actually making sense. Changing topics suddenly, he would wander around the stage, pontificating all the while. His very quick wit allowed him to hold his own against the most stubborn straight man, heckler or interviewer." from Wikipedia.

As a side note, an acquaintance of mine ran into Irwin Corey in Queens, NY in the early 1970s. They were both filling their gas tanks at a service station. He said The Professor was as much 'in character' in public as on the stage and on TV. I wish I could have been there.

See an example of Irwin Corey's magnificent and hilarious craft at: http://www.irwincorey.org/routines.html . Then reread Sarah (Plain Talkin') Palin's response, above, and see if you can determine any differences between the two "World's Foremost Authorities." Also, see if you can stop laughing.

So, let's give it up for John McCain's VP running mate, our generation's new "Professor Sarah Palin - The World's Foremost Authority."

Haven't seen this yet. Will look at it tonight

Employer blocks youtube as they want us to work during the work day

"Employer blocks youtube as they want us to work during the work day"

Boy. Some people :-)

Our bosses have always resisted internet content filtering. For reasons that become obvious if you look at their Histories and Cookies.

Wow Phantom Homer, they block your YouTube?

That's even worse than when they switched you from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but you kept your Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and you kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take your stapler then you'll set the building on fire...

hah

Shows what you know. I still have a Swingline stapler.

"Why isn't it better, Gov. Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas, and groceries, [to] allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?"

Come on, we all know Palin's real answer to this was "because they might use the money on contraceptives or abortions"

Good to see you, cranky.

There's no dressing ever made that'll make the American people swallow this salad.

Picture a kid who hasn't studied for an exam taking a stab at answering a question he hasn't got the answer to and this is what you get: Complete Bullshit. Only you can kind of forgive a kid for their naive hope that the teacher might not notice. Not an adult aiming for one of the highest positions of power.

Perhaps McCain, for the good of the country, can temporarily suspend his campaign again around the time of the vice-presidential debate. Or just tell us the next day that she had a flat tire on the way to the convention center.

Sorry about the double post. TypePad has always hated me.

DUPLICATE POSTING - PROBLEM SOLVED, maybe

I believe I discovered the cause of double posting, or at least the cause of some. I find that when I use the BACK button on my browser, and wind up BACKing into and past the page from which I posted, then it repeats the original post. It might also happen if I FORWARD through a posting page.

Can anyone second the motion or suggest something else? Does anyone give a hoot?

It reminded me of another beauty pageant contestant:

Richard Kusaba,

My God! You're right. We're under attack.

She probably picked that "flagging the molecules" phrase up from hubby, who is some sort of well-compensated plumber up on the North Slope. The ironic thing being that this is exactly the sort of phrase you hear bandied around by petroleum engineers and their ilk - I write as one of that ilk. But once it found its way into Sarah's braincell it just got mixed in and regurgitated with the rest of the word salad.

I think it is worthy to try president Obama's plan rather staying in this rotten current health care system.
