Even after defeat, Governor Sarah Palin continues to make news – and not in regards to a preemptive 2012 bid like some had assumed, but as (always) being a complete idiot.
A number of unnamed McCain campaign aides have come out since the Republican defeat Tuesday anonymously criticizing that:
- She had $150,000 spent on her clothes by the RNC
- She was fooled by a Canadian comedian pretending to be the French president
- She didn’t know Africa was a continent, not a country
- She did not know which countries were covered by the North American Free Trade Agreement
In response she shot back that the criticism was “cruel and it’s mean-spirited, it’s immature, it’s unprofessional, and those guys are jerks.” To everyone’s surprised she didn’t call them poo-poo heads.
She then went on to say:
“So, no, I think that if there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about Nafta, and about the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context”
Ah… it was just taken out of context. Ok, that happens all the time. I mean, Republican Jerks and the Liberal Media Elite always do that. Wait, wait, hold up. Did you say “the continent versus the country when we talk about Africa” ?
Umm, Mrs. Palin. This isn’t Australia. There is no “the country” of Africa.
And in case it happens that you come across this post, let me take this opportunity to explain that South America is, in fact, a continent, and not the place where gators and the Confederates come from.
