Sometimes the truth sneaks through …


No matter how hard the mouthbreathers tried to dance around it.

At a rally today in California, Gov. Sarah Palin offered up a rather jarring argument for supporting the Republican ticket. "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women," the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

The statement came after Palin had recounted a "providential" moment she experienced on Saturday: "I'm reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, ok? The quote of the day... It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. ... Now she said it, I didn't. She said, 'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"

Actually, Albright didn't say that. The real quote is, "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't help other women."

And if anyone should know about a reserved spot in Hell for not "supporting" other women, Caribou Barbie, it would probably be a jumped-up, gun-toting, Alaskan red neck who is vehemently opposed to a woman’s right to choose under virtually any circumstance.

McCain supports abortion in instances of rape or incest, but Palin, a mother of a 5-month-old infant with Down syndrome, said she would advocate abortion only if a mother's life was in danger.

"My personal opinion is that abortion [should be] allowed if the life of the mother is endangered. Please understand me on this. I do understand McCain's position on this. I do understand others who are very passionate about this issue who have a differing opinion," she said.

And don’t even get me started on the fact that she thinks it’s a great idea to take quotes incorrectly off her Starbuck’s cup – further glaring proof that this walking disaster masquerading as the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee is barely qualified to be a WalMart greeter, never mind being a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Jesus fuck, we are doomed.

Yabbut, wouldn't that mean Sarah Palin should have worked for the election of Hillary Clinton?

Should she really be admitting she drinks Starbucks? Wouldn't it have been more - I dunno, PALINESQUE - to claim to have read it in a fortune cookie from her fave takeout Chinese joint?

toujoursdan said...

Isn't Starbucks elitist? If she was really folksy she should be drinking coffee from greasy spoons.

sooey said...

And shouldn't that quote read more like:

"... iffin' mom's life is endangered..." and "... folks havin' a differin' opinion..."?

LuLu said...

And it should definitely be punctuated with several "yah, theres" a la Marge Gunderson.

sooey said...

Omigawd - you're right! She's lifted her script straight out of Fargo!

Balbulican said...

No way. Marge really WAS smart.

I too am suspicious of Republicans drinking at elitist venues like Starbuck's. If she had been in any of the north or northeastern blue states, she could have gone to a Tim Horton's and rolled up the rim. Think of what could have happened then.

sooey said...

Actually, Starbucks & governments are pretty interlinked these days.

So from now on it's not "Caribou Barbie," it's "latte-sipping Caribou Barbie?"

Frank Frink said...

or mocha-sipping at the very least.

Mocha? Now that don't sound very Merkin, that sounds Furrin.

LuLu said...

Mocha, mocha ... isn't that {{gasp}} French?!??!

Frank Frink said...

French??!!?? It's far, far worse.

It's (dial Five Five Five - Five Feet of Racial Profiling) Moooooooozzzzlim!!11!!1!
