We all agree that Sarah Palin is an idiot. Did you know however, that she is a flip-flopping idiot? The first clue to her self reversals was during her failed vice presidential campaign when she claimed that she said, “thanks, but no thanks” to that Alaskan bridge to nowhere. Of course, we all learned thereafter that she was in fact, in favor of the bridge to nowhere.
Well folks, the Alaska Disaster has done it again. We have now learned that during her press coverage–free speech in Hong Kong this week she said this of the cause of the global economic meltdown,
“We got into this mess because of government interference in the first place,” the former Republican U.S. vice presidential candidate said Wednesday at a conference sponsored by investment firm CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets. “We’re not interested in government fixes, we’re interested in freedom,”
Palin made it perfectly clear that she does not believe the government can help “fix” the problem. She is a strict capitalist that believes only the “freedom” of the marketplace can alleviate economic ills.
So then, how does Palin explain what she told Katie Couric during her disastrous interview one year ago today, which was,
“Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy- Helping the — Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. Shoring up our economy and putting 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.”
Now putting aside for the moment the fact that the last quotation is mostly incomprehensible gibberish-like Palin-speak, let’s try to figure out what she said. OK, the first sentence is completely stupid in that she says that what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy. WTF? The bailout helps those who are concerned about health care reform?
Moving right along however, she then says that the government bailout will shore up the economy and put it on the right track. So, in Palin’s world government fixes (i.e. bailout) shore up the economy and put it on the right track, but we’re not interested in government fixes. This Palin moron is a walking, talking, living contradiction.
In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the song parody.

(sung to the TV theme of “Flipper”)
They call her Sarah, Sarah, her beehive is frightening,
No one could be, as clueless as she,
And we know Sarah, lost an election that stunned her,
Interview blunders, on the T.V.!
“Ya Betcha” we saw, how vapid was she,
Yet she saw herself, as darn “Mavericky”,
She talked of a bridge, off to nowhere,
Referred to herself as a tough “Mama Bear”!
They call her Sarah, Sarah, in need of enlightening,
No one you see, was impressed with she,
And we know Sarah, lacked strong college education,
Unwed procreation, was more up her tree!
Not much needs to be said about John Lennon, so we won’t say very much. Here is a great clip of John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band playing Instant Karma on Britain’s Top Of The pops television program in 1970. Yoko Ono and her Dylanesque sign holding is worth the price of admission. Enjoy.
