Sarah Palin: The Facebook Schnook Or The Quitter On Twitter?

Immanuel Kant, a philosopher of the theory of knowledge was once quoted in the San Diego Union-Tribune as having said, “Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.” Did we ever mention that Sarah Palin has poor organizational skills?

The former ex-quitting governor of Alaska  demonstrated to us once again last Friday evening that she finds no correlation between science, life, organization and wisdom. She utilized Facebook, her second favorite means of transmitting ideas to oppose the Senate Democrats’ intention to hold a Saturday vote on whether to proceed with debate on its version of the health care reform bill. By the way, Ms. Quittypants’ first favorite means of transmitting ideas is Twitter because her ideas can usually be expressed in much less than that format’s 140 character restriction. On Facebook she said,

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is pushing for yet another weekend vote (commonplace now for the party of “transparency”) because he knows that the American people will be none too happy about the Democrats’ proposal the longer they have to look it over,

Okay, where to begin? How does holding a weekend vote somehow show a lack of “transparency”? Is the vote not open and public? Is there a “cone of silence” that somehow descends upon the Capitol on Saturday? Is there a problem with trying to get a vote in before the process is delayed further by this week’s Thanksgiving recess? Has Palin ever criticized the countless times that the previous Republican majority held weekend votes?

Secondly, although nearly every single non-partisan poll shows that a majority of Americans are in favor of health care reform, Palin says that the “American people will be none too happy about the Democrats’ proposal the longer they have to look it over.” Does having a Saturday vote simply upon the matter of whether or not to proceed with debate on the content of the proposed bill somehow limit the amount of time that the American people will have to consider the content of the bill? Isn’t it during the actual debate of the substantive provisions of the bill that the American people will learn more about its content? That’s all very nice dear Sarah, but please run along now while the nice senators are trying to have an adult conversation on health care reform.

Of course after having utilized Facebook, the “Alaska Disaster” could not resist the urge to tweet away. Please consider this gem of a Twitter post that she authored on Saturday, the day of the vote,

Thot I’d stick w tour news on Twitter but can’t help digress: Call senators! Tell ‘em KILL THE BILL tonite;horrible govt healthcare takeover.Senate healthcare takeover debate begins in an hour. Pls call senators if u care about another 1/6th of our economy swallowed up by Big Govt

Proof positive of the power of a University of Idaho journalism degree. Will Palin ever realize that should she choose to pursue elective office in the future, these inane tweets will come back to haunt her? Oh well, the rest of us can at least remain assured that certain time-tested scientific facts remain intact. The theory that everything that Sarah Palin touches will in turn transform itself into manure has held true once again. The Senate vote to proceed with debate on the health care reform bill of course, passed by a filibuster-proof 60 to 40 vote. Good work Sarah. You may not believe in or understand science, but time and again you prove it correct.

In honor of the troops, please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s song parody.

I SAY A WITCH-MASS PRAYER FOR YOU

sung to the Dionne Warwick song “I Say A Little Prayer For You ”

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a witch-mass prayer for Todd
While combing my hair now,
And choosing which specs to wear now
I’m casting out demons for God

Forever, and ever, the demons be damned
And exit our lives
Forever, and ever, to them I command
“Go possess Levi”
Together, forever, that’s how it must be
Satan and Levi
That would be like heaven for me

I look at my new house
So glad the First Dude is my spouse
He helped a lot with Mike Wooten
We made love on state time
Except when it was headache time
Or when I would deal with Putin

Forever, and ever, the demons be damned
And exit our lives
Forever, and ever, to them I command
“Go possess Levi”
Together, forever, that’s how it must be
Satan and Levi
That would be like heaven for me

(Want me to speak in tongues for you?)

(Want me to speak in tongues for you?)

Forever, and ever, the demons be damned
And exit our lives
Forever, and ever, to them I command
“Go possess Levi”
Together, forever, that’s how it must be
Satan and Levi
That would be like heaven for me
