That's the question posed (more gently than I'm posing it here)by Chauncey DeVega in the February 14 (or 15) edition of Alternet.org . DeVega writes: "The impenetrable stupidity of Sara Palin knows no boundaries. She wallows in mediocrity. Palin is the queen bee of a cult of personality where to be anti-intellectual is a trait to be REWARDED. Ultimately, she presides over a confederacy of DUNCES."

DeVega claims--rightly, I suspect, that "If Sara Palin were black she would have disappeared into obscurity long ago."

One of the most enduring features of white privilege is the right to be STUPID and get away with it.

She should be as smart as the fools in Washington now.......

We are broke, have no jobs and spend money like it grows on trees.......

I know a guy that has 2 college degrees. One in Management and the other in marketing. He didn't know city blocks were in numerical order.

Just because you can recite poems and know the history of France in the 15 hundreds doesn't mean you can relate to the COMMON American trying to get by in life. All it really means is that you have the ability to read a book and pass a test. You still can be a real dumbass..........

Again, look at all these highly educated people running our government and companies into the ground. Wonderfully smart people right.....?

Oh Please! Sara Palin even dumber than George W. Bush. And deVega is right: she'd be dismissed as an "affirmative action baby" and banished to oblivion if she were black with such a low level of intelligence.
My God! She can see Russia from her office in Alaska! LOL! Besides, Abraham Lincoln didn't have a college degree, but he was neither semi-literate nor stupid.Tom Paine, Frederick Douglass, Bill Haywood, Eugene V. Debs, didn't have college degrees. But they weren't half-literate dunces. Rumor has it that Sara Palin actually got a degree from one of the four or five colleges she had to go to before she managed to graduate. And she's still a moron. She KNOWS NOTHING, and she is to lead a nation? Even McCain doesn't like her. Dumb witch.

By the way, do you have to be stupid to "relate to COMMON Amerricans trying to get by"? I seem to recall a village idiot from Texas whom some people voted for because he was someone they could drink a beer with; and though he belonged to the PRIVILEGED CLASS of billionaires who was screwing the common people right and left, he was someone who could "relate" the common people. Right.
Of course, they say Hitler had a certain appeal to the common people as well. The common people need to put their thiking caps on if they believe that crap.
But obviously they don't all believe it. Or at least they didn't a year ago, of we'd have a McCain/Palin administration.

Bill Maher & DeVega

I think these two agree on one thing. You can't get away with as much stupidity as Sara or GW if you're not white.
Bill Maher, shortly after Obama's election, warned about simply assuming we'd got beyond race or our racist past and culture.
We will know we're making PROGRESS, when a black man as dumb as George W. Bush can be elected President. If you gotta have a Harvard law degree and be first President of the Harvard Law Review to qualify if you black, then we're not there yet.

she would be called a "strong black woman" and also hero-worshipped by white liberals. All the black dopes here would say "of course she cans sees Russia, Man!" . she'd make silly speeches about Africa, and con you all out of your money, like a black Reverend or Michael Jackson.

Yet you probably couldn't handle their jobs.
And who gives a f$$k about the order of city blocks?

Yes and no. Most of the people in government have degrees with no practical application whatsoever to governing. The are either professional thieves (lawyers) or political scientists (know how to run for office). Have you ever heard of a PhD in Macro economics getting elected?
I like Sarah because she's DONE things. Owned a business. Ran a city. Had jobs in the private sector. Give me someone who's DONE something over someone who learned about what someone ELSE did.

If Sara Palin were Black, her STUPIDITY would certainly be expected since it is believed that blacks are mentally inferior. But she would have no political career, and would not be the darling of FoxNews.
And if she had a daughter with a child out of wedlock, the media would be going on and on about that this was simply another example of how "pathological" the black community and culture are.

Except that you will have a hard time finding a black woman as stupid as Sara Palin who would not be immediately banished to obscurity.

Honestly, I don't think she's stupid as people think....the media paints her to be that.

I like the fact that she's a regular person...not some snobby, elitist politician.

Interestingly enough, the founders of the American Republic were men who had degrees in subjects with no "practical value." Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison were all lawyers ("professional thieves" in your book) but with a humanistic education as well.
And Jefferson thoght that one could hardly govern well or remain a free citizen of a free republic without learning what SOMEONE ELSE did(HISTORY being of great importance to Jefferson).
But those who celebrate ignorance naturally would embrace a moronic Christian Right harpy like Sara Palin.

Exactly! Just look at OJ. The negros didn't care that he was a murderer; they worshipped him all the same. Just wait until they die and try to play the race card to prevent going to hell. Won't work.

The media handles Palin with kid gloves. In fact, she's probably DUMBER than she appears on screen.
And what of her husband's association with this extreme right secessionist movement?
If she were a Black woman married to a man who was a separatist or secessionist, she'd get a lot rougher treatment by the media for HIS extremist views.
White privilege is alive and well in America. And one of those privileges, which Palin eagerly avails herself of, is the right to be STUPID and get away with it.

Bill Maher's Observation.

Now EVERY intelligent person, both domestic and foreign, knows that Ronald Reagan was a dumb actor, A mediocre actor and perhaps worse as a President. but Palin makes him look like a genius.
Bill Maher was right. Sara Palin makes the Hollywood Dunce, Ronald Reagan, look like a Harvard professor. That's truly sad.

You made my point better then I did......lol

I like your posts........

Savant thinks he is so damm smart. See he puts down Sarah for being able to see Russia from her house......

This is what she ACTUALLY said....

"They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."
