Palin takes on 'language police'

Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

JUNEAU, Alaska - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has some harsh words for what she calls the "politically correct language police." The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate made a Facebook post in which she compared the NCAA tournament to a "heated, competitive primary election." Then she went on to use some of the same rhetoric she has ...

Consider the word used to describe a flat, thin wafer upon which one often puts peanut butter or cheese. It begins with c. One brand name is Ritz. Here is the word:

cracker

She's just a hillbilly, what else would you expect? She should be thanking McCain everyday for handing her a career. If not for him, she would be back in Alaska wearing a pair of waders and swatting black flies.

Palin is fun to watch - she's kind of a ginned-up version of poor Dan Quayle, VP under G. H. W. Bush. Quayle also got a lot of undeserved heat for taking on TV personalities & being a low-charisma kinda guy. Palin's style is better, but I think she suffers in a direct comparison w/ Quayle. I always thought he had to be smarter than the public gaffes he got into. With Palin - it seems to me that she invites the press, & loves to play "chicken" with them. But that's a losing game, when your competitors buy ink by the barrel ...

I'm glad that woman is taking on these liberal bastards. I enjoy watching them cry, because I know those are the few that know their fate. They sure as hell can't blame their fuckups on Palin, and she's one of mnay who are gonna hand them their ass in 2010 just like she's been doing all along. You'd think these stupid bastards would keep their mouth shut, so they don;t end up with a Bullseye over their town. Keep running your mouth you liberal scum. Keep doing what you've been doing, and you'll keep getting the same results. Remember, it is YOU liberal scum who are no longer safe in this Country.
And don't forget your a RACIST and HOMOPHOBE...just kidding...GREAT POST!!!!

Where in the hell did the "Language Police" moniker come from? The headline of the AP story was: "Palin steps up rhetoric against her detractors"

Palin’s speeches are nothing but a collection of bumper sticker slogans.

I found it ironic that she uses an applause line:“Our vision for America is anchored in time-tested truths that the government that governs least governs best, that the Constitution provides the path to a more perfect union — it’s the Constitution,”

Then she demonstrates her absolute ignorance of the constitution and the distain of the constitution by firing up the equally ignorant crowd with:“In these volatile times when we are a nation at war, now more than ever is when we need a commander-in-chief, not a constitutional law professor lecturing us from a lectern.”

Guess she and her teabagger devotees are too damn ignorant to understand that according to the constitution that the President IS the Commander-in-Chief.

Logic dictates that if she has such high regard for the constitution she’d be thankful there is a constitutional law professor interpreting it as he performs his constitutionally designated duties.

This is just another fer instance of conversatives trying to get the lather up on their diddo headed followers by encouraging them to commit acts of violence. Why can't people like her follow the liberal protestors of Bush, Cheney, Delay, Gingrich, et.al. who simply stated politely their factual differences with them and avoided name calling and other forms of abusive and contemptuous behavior?

dim-wit dim-o-crats dislike palin because she operates exactly like O-bribe-a......

Yes, unless you are a conservative like Rush Limbaugh. Then you can use the word as much as you'd like.

Hey, Placentia Boy! You Socialist losers like to call us: dumb, hick, racist, white, Bible thumping haters! Well a lot of us have done read old Saul Alinsky’s book, "Rules for Radicals" years ago! So we are well informed on the tactics continually utilized by the looney radical left to attack those who voice opposition! It's a crack-up to watch you whinny Socialist losers threaten and attack verbally every perceived opponent by using vulgar ignorant language and bald faced lies to try to discredit and re-direct the public! We know what the Obama radicals are trying to do and we aren't taking it sitting down! We're exposing pukes like you with the truth and knowledge and our numbers are growing! I joined the Tea Party Patriots last year! Come on down to try to intimidate me and keep me from exercising my first amendment rights sometime in Monterey at a protest. You won't miss me! I'm white, balding, 6-0, 195 and muscular as I have been shoving weights for almost 40 years now and I'm a retired law enforcement officer. So there haven’t been too many pukes like you who could ever attempt to intimidate me or give me pause! Come on down and try to keep me or other concerned citizens and friends from protesting and exercising our first amendment rights to protest puke! I dare you!

The majority is wising up to the false persona presented by the President during his campaign. The public is only now this past year realizing they been lied to by their President! I did my homework prior to the election and it wasn't difficult to realize Obama was a phony! He's a left wing radical punk who spent a lot of years hanging with pukes like Rev. Wright, Communist Party of USA Frank Marshal Davis, self admitted terrorist William Ayers and other assorted South Side Chicago crooks, cronies and pukes! I quickly realized Obama is a punk and associated with like minded pukes like you! I read both of his books and plenty of referenced books exposing Obama's associations and voting records!
We will rise up and toss lying leftist losers out of office the next few election cycles. We don't take too kindly to lazy, lefty wing entitlement losers sucking our country dry and calling us names when we protest! You have been exposed puke along with the tactics employed by the Democrats and left wing biased media!
They're going broke as their ratings tank!
