One Wish Didn't Come True


I made a Christmas wish of having 2010 be More News and Less Palin, and, looky here, it's barley three days past Christmas and, well, you can't always get what you want. So, let me talk about The Quitter.

Y'all probably saw the picture of her in the McCain visor, while on vacation in Hawaii; you know, the one that she took a Sharpie to, and blocked out the McCain on the hat, though you could still see it. And she paraded her wolf-killing-ass all over Hawaii getting her picture taken in the hat. Then, because The Quitter is never one to stay out of the limelight, she released a statement saying she was sorry she blacked out the McCain 2008 on the hat, but, she was, uh, well, trying to be incognito while on vacation, and she needed a visor. Apparently, unlike real Americans, The Quitter doesn't know that they sell hats, even in Hawaii.

And then came word of her Nixon-esque "Enemies List." The list she made up of certain anti-Quitter bloggers and writers; the list she carries with her so she can keep these people from coming to her book signing. Yes, she's a real American, folk; just as long as you don't say anything mean about her uneducated ass. Hmmmm, does that get me on the list?

Of course, then, we now have the award that The Quitter just won. And you betcha she should be proud of this one. Earlier this month, PolitiFact.com awarded Governor Half-Term the Lie Of The Year award for claiming that President Obama's health care reform would set up "death panels" who would decide if seniors and disabled citizens "based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society' " would be "worthy of health care."

Y'all remember that one, right?

The Quitter doesn't. She has since called her statement both metaphoric and accurate, and just a month ago, in an interview with the National Review, she said she didn't regret the remark:
"To me, while reading that section of the bill, it became so evident that there would be a panel of bureaucrats who would decide on levels of health care, decide on those who are worthy or not worthy of receiving some government-controlled coverage. Since health care would have to be rationed if it were promised to everyone, it would therefore lead to harm for many individuals not able to receive the government care. That leads, of course, to death."

Liar.Liar.Pants.On.Fire.

And in addition to being an outright liar, in a recent Facebook posting, she laid the blame at her winning the Lie Of The Year award at the feet of "Nancy Pelosi and friends who have tried to call 'death panels' the 'lie of the year.'" Um, Sarah, sweety, get someone to read for you...perhaps the same person that writes for you. It wasn't Pelosi, it wasn't a Democrat, it was PolitiFact.com, you blithering, dithering fool.

Sarah Palin. I wished and wished you'd shut your yap and just go away, but you can't even get that right.
