Sarah Palin is my favorite Republican.
Yes, I know that may very well be irresponsible because she can be very damaging to this country, but I love her all the same. Every time I see a news story about her, I smile. I know that whatever she’s done now will be so entertaining I can skip my nightly Netflix binge.
So, one of my earliest articles talked about Sarah Palin’s odd tribute to Billy Graham. If you thought?that?jumble of words was bad though, wait until you see this one. Recently, Palin came under fire for a photo of her son, Trig, stepping on the family dog to reach the sink.
The animal-rights activism group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), issued a statement of admonishment to Palin:
It’s odd that anyone?let alone a mother?would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo. Then again, PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman, who actually thought it appropriate to be filmed while turkeys were being slaughtered right behind her in full view of the camera.
This is where it gets interesting. Palin is known for her off-script rambling in videos, but now we have a very strong example to show that her word-salad communication style isn’t limited to speaking aloud. The following is an excerpt of the run-on sentence response to PETA that she posted to her Facebook page:
Aren?t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin? new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs ?caviar?.
The response in total was, apparently, to point out hypocrisy within PETA with regard to animal treatment and to remind everyone that Obama once ate dog as a child in Indonesia. The end result was just another slathering of word vomit that takes about two or three readings to fully understand. However, the?comments are just as bad.
Barney Pickard:?Mrs. Palin, you have a beautiful grasp of the English language. It was a great read!! (Really bordering on Poe’s law here…)
Marty Zeger:?Luv it !! The world ( u.s.a.) needs more people like you who ain’t afraid to stand up for what is right, and stop following the $ from the rich corrupt leaders we have in the world! ! : )?(This ethnocentric babble relates to the topic at hand how?)
Brad McGilberry: You said a mouthful Sarah. Funny how those who tell us we stink are the ones with doo doo on their shoes. LMAO?(No kidding on the mouthful part…)
I poke fun, but honestly, Palin is a source of entertainment for me. I don’t really see her as a true political threat. But if she ever tries to go into teaching English,?run.?However,?Texas will probably be more than happy to hire her.
