another post about how mccain's poor judgment is evident in his important vp selection

first watch what palin said yesterday morning:

here is what she said again:

"Now [Madeleine Albright] said it, I didn't. She said, 'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.' . . . Okay, now, thank you so much for receiving that well. I didn't know how that was gonna go over. And now, California, let's see what a comment like I just made, how that is turned into whatever it'll be turned into tomorrow with the newspaper."

i haven't seen the headlines yet, but i'm guessing they look something like this:

    palin is about as dumb as some moron saying he was shot at seven times in iraq. that would be like some dumbass asking a guy in a wheelchair to stand up. what a complete idiot she must be!

  2. is this palin-speak (aka rambling nonsense intended to divert the discussion)?

  3. typical right-wing hatemonger10/06/2008 11:31 AM

    not at all. i completely agree that palin is about as dumb as some guy claiming he was shot at while in the iraqi green zone only to learn later that wasn't really the case. i was also pointing out that palins gaffe was on par with some dumb ass asking a guy in a wheelchair to stand up. it is crazy that huffington post gives biden a pass for his gaffe because of how hard the campaign trail is and then turn around and point out palins mistakes as plain stupidity. can not have it both ways people either they are both bumbling idiots or they are both on a strenuous campaign trail

  4. it's one thing to have a gaffe. biden and obama have plenty of them. it's another thing to center a pathetic attempt at ridiculing people around such an idiotic gaffe.

    i'm guessing you see no difference though. oh well.

  5. I mean this sincerely, but I don't see what was so idiotic about what she said? Is there some background info that I'm missing? To me it seemed like she was sharing some anectodotal story to begin her speech with the hopes of creating some humor.

  6. cody,

    did you read the actual quote on the cup? palin's whole attack was based on her misreading albrecht's quote.

  7. Ah, my bad, didn't catch that one.

  8. If by "Albrecht" you mean "Albright." Oopsie.

  9. hmmmmm....i don´t think her changing the word shows she´s an idiot. maybe that she is willing to misquote someone while claiming to be directly quoting them. (which is a sin all in itself.)

    was she reading the cup at the time she gave that little speech? i hope not, cuz then it would show that she either purposely misquotes or that she can not read. either way...ouch.

    and yes...Hate-monger, i would feel like an dumba** asking a wheelchair bound individual to stand up. but i also felt like an idiot when i said ¨sex¨ instead of ¨six¨. or when i was talking to a blind person and i said ¨you see what i´m saying...¨ or when i was talking to my friend who has a downsyndrome sister and i said ¨i am so retarded¨. or when i said ¨i wish i was dead¨ to my friend whose mother just died.

    but those are totally different than intentional misquotes or illiteracy (is that how you spell that? hahahahaha)

    maybe i´m just a dumba**

  10. sorry for the repost so soon from the last, but OMG! Hatemonger did you even bother to read the article that you linked? i wonder! from what you linked, he did not claim to be shot at 7 times!

    ¨Let’s start telling the truth,” he said. “Number one, you take all the troops out — you better have helicopters ready to take those 3,000 civilians inside the Green Zone, where I have been seven times and shot at. You better make sure you have protection for them, or let them die, number one.”

    that is copy and pasted from the article you linked. What it says is that he has been to the Green Zone 7 times and that he was shot at.

    and if you read futher you see that his revisions to his claims are based on semantics. such as:

    ¨Patrick Campbell, legislative director for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, said Biden should be careful about how he describes his experiences, especially when making political points.¨

    “Veterans don’t like it when people mischaracterize their service, people who overstate what happens to them,” he said. “We
    have names for them¨

    Biden felt it was politcally unwise to make claims like being shot at when soldiers know the difference between actually being shot at and random fire.

    But i ask you, if you could hear and feel shots going off and hitting anywhere in your vacinity, how would you feel? i know that i would feel in grave danger especially since i am not used to feeling or hearing shots!

    i agree that when a public figure makes such claims he/she needs to be precise as to not mislead the public or misrepresent onself. But in turn, if you are going to making a point on a blog you should do the same.

  11. What bothers me most is the point that Palin was (supposedly) trying to make: that women who do not "support" other women are going to hell. It's apparent that Palin wasn't using the word "support" in the sense of "help," otherwise the misquotation would have been immaterial. It appears that Palin was using the word "support" in the sense of political support.

    Does Palin think that all the feminists who supported Hillary but do not support her going to hell?

  12. Sorry, that last line should read, "Does Palin think that all the feminists who supported Hillary but do not support her are going to hell?"
