A Prediction comes true
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Jonah Goldberg, writing on September 10th, asserted:
And let’s not forget Biden, whose gaffes are the unavoidable byproduct of his limitless gasbaggery. Biden could shout on Meet the Press, “Get these squirrels off of me!” and the collective response would be, “There goes Joe again.” But if Palin flubs the name of the deputy agriculture minister of Kyrgyzstan, the media will blow their whistles saying she’s unprepared for the job.
Part I, at least, has been fulfilled, with the "FDR on TV" comment.

Kinsley once said that a "gaffe" in Washington speak is accidentally telling the truth. So you’re right, Palin has not yet committed a gaffe. Hell, given Kinsley’s definition, she seems incapable of committing a gaffe. It’s just not in her. After all, the lesser included offense of accidentally telling the truth is telling the truth.

OTOH, given the McCain campaign’s penchant for keeping Little Miss Sarah from all the big bad reporters, I doubt she will ever get the chance to say anything that hasn’t been written in advance for her.

You wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped you upside the head, but it is always nice to see my favorite lying sack of guano wing its way back here to deposit even more of the same.

Still waiting on you to prove your lie about the "number one defense of Bush" on this site - moonbat got your tongue?

Care to recall Hillery’s aversion to "all the big bad reporters" her access to the press was even more managed & limited than Palin’s. That is untill BO started thumpin her then she could’nt get on O’Reilly fast enough.


did’nt seem to be a problem for you then. Why now?

Anyone who supports McCain/Palin and presumes to lecture others on what the truth is has got a screw loose. Seriously. Look, I admire the McCain/Palin campaign for the post-modernist campaign mode. They have made much out of nothing. But it’s still b*llsh*t. And you know it.

But you know something, you’re right, McQ. I screwed up in identifying the number one defense of Bush on this site. You got me. I got it completely wrong.

I obviously overlooked the other, more popular defenses: (1) Bush is God; (2) those who criticize Bush are projecting; and (3) those who criticize Bush hate the troops.

So no, I lied. I lied my *ss off. The number one defense on this site from the charge that Bush is an idiot has not been invoking his degrees from Harvard and Yale. It has been instead that he is a God, a genius, and that anyone who disagrees hates the troops and America and themselves.

You got me. I lied and lied and lied.

Man, mk, do you even read this site? I would hardly call these guys a bunch of Bush-lovers. Maybe in comparison to BDS-sufferers, but that’s hardly a reasonable metric.

And I EAGERLY look forward to your explanation of how, exactly, the McCain/Palin campaign is postmodernist. That should be great fun.

The difference between the MSM’s treatment of Biden and Palin speaks volumes about their bias.

We ALL make "gaffes" now and then. I’d wager that Biden makes more than the average person simply because he talks more than the average person (and probably more than the average member of Congress, and THAT’S saying something). When the cameras are on you so much, it’s impossible NOT to make the occasional misstatement.

The problem is, as McQ points out, that a gaffe by Biden is brushed off by the MSM, while a gaffe by Palin - even a manufactured gaffe - is unassailable evidence of her unreadiness / ignorance / stupidity. It is so in most cases involving Republicans and (spit) democrats. As Ann Coulter has written, democrat candidates are assumed to be geniuses while Republican candidates with very similar academic records are assumed to be morons. Witness Bush v. Algore or Jean-Francois. In terms of academic achievements, Bush and Jean-Francois are quite similar; both eclipse Algore. Yet, which two of the three are treated as geniuses while the third is treated like a low-grade moron by the press?

Yes you did, and still do. So why should anyone care what you have to say?

They don’t. But like me, they do like to occasionally poke the liar in the cage and get him riled up.

That is your only value around here.

Like I said - comic relief.

". . .given the McCain campaign’s penchant for keeping Little Miss Sarah from all the big bad reporters. . ."

And exactly when did it become required of Palin to take questions from Bambi’s campaign workers, MK?

Good lord, now wonder MK admires Obama so much - talk about a campaign making much out of nothing!

We must have a new MK lurking in here. This one doesn’t seem to use ’wingnut’ anywhere near as much as the last.

Idiots don’t fly F-102s, become governor of Texas for multiple terms, and become President for multiple terms.

I think we should all chip in so mkultra can fly an F-102 and prove he’s not an idiot.

And when he crashes and burns we may find out once and for all the answer to that age old question - Does sh*t burns white or brown.

I’m more interested in the video documenting the Darwin Award.
