    Check out the "Show Facts" button and the "Hide Facts" button. Compare the difference.

    But yeah, Sarah Palin IS that ignorant.

    That's why this is so believable.

    Clearly a type of caricature, but not unexpected in the current Punch-n-Judy political circus we all witness yet act as though it's happening to someone else.
    As nutso as Palin may sound to some (intensified by the knowledge there are plenty who agree without reservation, who accept her words as their own), it must be pointed out how many people on the other side of this (or any) topic accept the hyperbole of their own empty-headed mouthpieces.
    Think of ANY political figure who publicly supports and campaigns for the end of arms in the US.
    Without fail, not a single one of them is ever among the hoi pollio without armed protection.
    Ever.

    Just the other day, VP Joe "Copy, Copy, Copycat©" Biden sent out a heartfelt plea under the auspices that "enough is enough" when it comes to "assault weapons" and that common sense tells us we need to do away with them.
    Assault weapons.
    What is that, exactly?
    Do you think that idiot knows?
    Clearly not, or he wouldn't use the term.
    But he knows there isn't any such thing as an "assault weapon" but he uses words to evoke emotion, and he knows loaded terms such as this or the dreaded "lone gunman" are certain to elicit the desired affect.

    Do you think that elder plagiarizer leaves the compound without a litany of quick-acting, hair-trigger assassins?
    Armed to the teeth?

    But his fans think otherwise.
    As do all the fans of all the liberals who karaoke their favorite no gun songs.

    The lot of them are just as lost as the lot who subscribe to Reader's Digest, hurriedly thumbing to read "Life in These United States" or "All in a Day's Work," with each US Postal Service delivery.

    We're all easily distracted, eventually entertained.

    Freaky, please don't ever stop posting in reply to these kinds of threads. You have no idea how many times I've been checked by your incredibly insightful reviews.

    O'Reilly --though glued and told nonetheless.

    Moreover, it does not matter a single bit whatever the plebs argue about, or
    the bread crumbles thrown to the floor in the form of a small thing here and
    there, as the winners will always be the same, i.e. the moneyed elites
    shielded behind their corporate structures.

    You could be right, amigo. But all of us are above average.

    I believe who ever we put in office will be simply more of the same in varying degrees.
    Palin was dreamed up by the Republican party, a sock puppet concocted to counter the cut-outs controlled by the other side.
    They have broads?
    So do we!
    When is the last time we saw genuine talent run for office?
    Not talent of running for office, but talent, i.e., integrity, intelligence, accomplishment in the business world, leadership not requiring US color schemed slow-pan camera shots with an orchestral accompaniment?
    Not in my lifetime, except Ross Perot and look what happened to him by the process from both sides.
    The rest of those we elect into office are the modern day equivalent to the debauched leaders of ancient Rome, albeit with a desperate veneer of propriety which is necessary to get the vote.

    That's an interesting piece of fiction, but you forgot one:

    LOL. Fiction 🙂

    Refer to my original post and thanks for proving my point.

    By the way...

    No, we don't envy you. The criticism is based on the US and US-based
    corporations having invaded, messed up, exploited, stolen from, intervened,
    pillaged, and abused foreign countries since stealing Hawaii from its owners in order
    to benefit some whites profiting from deposing Queen Liliuokalani*.

    That's, like, 120 years of non-stop bullying. So, it is not envy, Cletus. It is
    anger. Real anger. And justified. No wonder the nutcases are fond of
    smashing planes into
    your buildings.

    You get no argument from me. I know all about it. US is in decline and has been for 100 years. Right now we are running on pure inertia. It will run its course in a couple more decades I am afraid. Which may be a good thing. All empires come to an end and the former king of the world is just another one of the guys like Federer, now shown to be human after all. And Serena for that matter, her # 1 days are numbered.
