One of the more bewildering aspects of this country's popular culture is the amount of time the media spends covering, and devoting valuable airtime to, complete idiots.... people who contribute nothing. Exhibit "A": Snooki and the Kardashian sisters. Also on my list is Sarah Palin.
The media say they cover her because she might run for president. Bullsh*t! She's not going to run for anything.
Up in Boston the other day, a bunch of reporters showed up to record and disseminate Palin's latest pearls of wisdom. Palin didn't disappoint.
Camera crews went away with what is destined to become the most idiotic 17-second soundbite ever uttered by a politician anywhere.
He who warned, uh, the…the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringin’ those bells and um by makin’ sure that as he’s ridin’ his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that uh we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free…and we were gonna be armed.Palin, of course, was wrong about Revere's ride. She was instantly skewered by pundits for her history re-write. History that any third or fourth-grader knows by heart.
went on FOX News to say she knows her history and she was just answering a "shout-out, gotcha type of question."
Before yesterday, no one had paid much attention to the question.
But, a little digging has turned up what Palin considers a "gotcha" question:
“What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?”Here's a question for you Miss Palin...and please, take all the time you need to answer it. Are there no limits to your stupidity and dishonesty?
