Press Will Never Get To Ask Sarah Palin Any Questions, Because She’s Studying

by Jim Newell

Two weeks before Sarah Palin will talk to anyone. It’s like cramming for the LSAT in two weeks, except in this case, the LSAT is “the entirety of foreign and domestic United States policy,” which has nothing to do with The Law. [YouTube]

Yeah this was awesome.

Every couple of weeks or so Matthews’ hatred of Olbermann bursts out and he shits all over someone on air. It’s great that it’s been happening more and more often; Convention Stress was really getting to everyone at MSNBC.

Texan Bulldoggette September 6, 2008 at 8:15 pm

Sorry, I got no snark for this. If the ‘real’ journalists of the world let this pass, and these two win, I will probably never vote in another election again. We will have truly gotten the government we deserved. Gotta go start drinking now–so depressing.

jerryw September 6, 2008 at 8:26 pm

She’s not deep into her studies yet, but after the packages from the
meth labs in Alaska arrive, then you’ll see what study is really all about.
The books will be on fire, what with all those pages flying………
Or perhaps her crack pipe fell over?

‘Til then, here’s some stuff to learn about election machines:

Sarah Palin is like a collectable Barbie doll. If you keep her locked up and hidden away, she’ll be valuable in the future. If you take her out and let the press touch her, she’ll drop in value and won’t be worth shit by election day. Also, neither she or the Barbie have nipples. Weird I know, but has anyone ever said they saw them? I don’t think so.

itgetter September 6, 2008 at 8:26 pm

“The press is going to be pounding her… wanting to know where the access is… there’ll be a lot of noise… as frustrated as the press will be… this is a smart move.”

Basically, Sarah Palin is a huge cocktease.

I’m sorry, was that sexist?

Top 10 Comments Overheard During Secret Palin Cram Sessions?

10. Well, no, Governor. Not everyone on Earth speaks English.

9. The “Evil Soviet Empire”? Well, we in the State Department haven’t called it that for some time now.

8. Burnt? No, the people in Africa were born that color. And the “little yellow ones” don’t have jaundice.

7. Yes, we realize that Baby Jesus was not Jewish. Nonetheless, the Israelis are not Southern Bapists.

6. Those things the Saudi royal family wear are not dresses, regardless of how much they like holding hands with President Bush.

5. When we say “Chinese,” we’re usually not talking about ordering take-out, Governor.

4. That’s a tough one, Govenor. Maybe we can get someone from NASA to explain how, given that the Earth really is flat as stated in the Bible, all those reconnaissance satellites manage to stay in orbit.

3. I undersand your concerns, Govenor. But as used in State Department briefing memos, “French” is not a sexual reference that might be bad for Bristol to hear.

2. Yes, “Indians.” You know, the subcontinent? “India”? Around 900 million or so people? Next to Chin . . . . No, we’re not making it up.

::: Internal Mental Dialogue: Fuck me: I took the Foreign Service Exam for THIS???:::

And No. 1 Comment Overheard During Secret Palin Cram Session?

1. We’re sure your beauty queen gown was lovely, Govenor. But we don’t mean that kind of “Muslim.”

Off topic, but it finally dawned on me who that harpy shrew reminds me of – she’s a dead ringer for Peggy Hill on King of the Hill. I’m sure someone has already pointed that out by now, but I don’t get to read every comment.

UnindictedCo-conspirator September 6, 2008 at 9:10 pm

So depressing. All of the blatant lies and doublespeak they’ve been laying out over the past week–I’m fully convinced now that one would have to be either incredibly dumb or completely morally bankrupt to buy into it. So even leaving out all the Democrats who also happen to be dummies, that means about half the country is *confirmed* stupid and/or evil. I always suspected as much, but now I know.

Note to McCain: In reference to Palin, like they say in “Tropic Thunder,” you should never go “full retard.” [Apologies to the developmentally disabled for including someone purposefully inane in their ranks.]

At least pick somebody who doesn’t need to cram a law degree and decades of public service and interest in international experience (and reading periodicals that end in “Times” instead of “digest”–if she bothers to read at all, which is unclear–she seems to get most of her political news from the teevee, which as we all know, is great) in two weeks.

As we all know, she’s gonna be changing diapers, sending sons off to war, counseling unwed teen mothers, running for vice president of the free world, running the largest oil producing state of blah blah blah.

She hardly has time to learn, for instance, what countries speak Kurdish?

I bet Biden knows.
I bet Obama knows.
I bet Hillary knows.
I bet McCain used to know (and can still guess)(but still has enough since to defer).
I bet Palin has a suburb-friendly Bush-ism to rally the troops to her defense, and I am mortified.

The end.

She won’t be studying up on anything so specific as Kurdish geography because first, there isn’t enough time, but also, more importantly, if she did she would be playing into Biden’s hands. If she studied really hard and then went out there and showed off her new-found appreciation of the significance of the 12th imam (or any other of the millions of pieces of foreign affairs minutiae Joe Biden must have crammed away in his head while gathering years of useless non-executive experience in the US Senate) and she were to get it wrong, she would be caught out, flanked, isolated, and finished. She’s too valuable an asset for that to be allowed to happen.

No, instead she is studying up on dozens of different ways of saying, “I don’t know and I don’t care, and neither do the American people.” She can only be defeated if she gives the Democrats the power to defeat her. She won’t.

We request you provide the citizens of the United States with the opportunity to see Governor Palin interviewed by a variety of news media outlets.

This election is a crucial one to us in terms of a wide range of domestic and foreign policy issues. Given the current concerns about numerous topics including health care, the rise in unemployment, the tense relations between Russia and Georgia, and the ongoing war in Iraq, it is neither sufficient nor acceptable that we hear Governor Palin’s opinions and ideas only through pre-written speeches, press releases and select interviews with “soft” and “friendly” news sources such as People magazine and Fox News…[for rest of text, click link above]

It’s all about making an entrance. They wait two weeks, let the troopergate, book-banning, oil company beloging, earmark grabbing, sambo saying, meth queen and teen pregnancy rumors die down, then she comes out waving and smiling and answers a few cream puff questions with “America must be strong and believe in Jesus and trust me, I’m an empty-headed small town mom, just like you all,” and all will be forgiven.
I’m just hoping that, after hiding out for 2 weeks (4 if they can get away with it)the 1st question a reporter asks her is “Did you really take a 22 hour flight from Texas to Alaska, changing planes on the way and leaving 3 cities with perfectly adequate hospitals, without informing the airline that you were even pregnant, AFTER you noticed amniotic fluid dripping down your leg?”
Follow up question #1 Are you nuts?
Follow up question #2 How stupid do you think we are?

Borat September 7, 2008 at 5:14 am

I think the Republicans should issue a video montage of the VPILF hitting the books, going to the library, falling asleep in books, being prepped by kissenger etc. Then americans will know she’s really prepared. Kinda like Rocky training to fight but maybe more like that movie where the dumb blonde sority chick inexpicably gets into harvard law

Come to think of it, the VPILFs supporters think that dumb random luck gets people like Nobama into good law schools.

[re=88011]gurukalehuru[/re]: You don’t get it. If the baby was born in texas, then no $1200 annuity & the baby is at risk of ethnic cleansing when alaskans rise up against their oppressors down south.

Of course it makes sense to nearly kill a baby by traveling when you are pro-life under these circumstances.

Only after a baby is born is it OK to kill it through mandatory conscription to war, death penalty, guns, meth, etc

[re=88018]franks and beans[/re]: Brilliant. But I don’t see the link of a dumb carolina beauty queen commenting incoherently on the education system and the foreigns with Palin’s cram sessions.

Oh.

Sorry, tropical Hanna made me hot and wet.

[re=87978]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: Hey- I found a nice place overlooking the ocean in Novia Scotia for under 190K American! And I took the Canadian work application thingy and I’ve got enough points! Just have to convince hubby he can work up there… my daughter- she keeps telling me I don’t have enough hope and that President Obama will make all this worrying go away. Bless her heart, she’s too young to know what religious fervor and and an unwavering belief in the certainty of rightness can do to an election.

There’s the danger that if she studies too much, she’ll be unfit for the Confederacy of the Stupid. We wouldn’t want that to happen, now, would we?

Then again, I suppose it depends on what she studies. EDUCATED STUPID!

[re=88046]irisheyes[/re]: What’s the point? As soon as U.S. and A. runs out of water, Canada will get sued under NAFTA and awarded to a private equity company in Texas. And have you ever experienced insane winter with ocean spray? You’ll drink yourself into an early grave, like everyone else who lives there.

What an elitist!

She should be careful. Being educated is a liability these days.

SayItWithWookies September 7, 2008 at 12:13 pm

[re=88056]trophy(forparticipation)wife[/re]: She’s being schooled on foreign affairs by Joe Lieberman and this guy named Stephen Beigun, who’s a VP for Ford (and seems to be in charge of lobbying the gov’t on foreign affairs issues). With that sort of a one-sided education, she won’t be in danger of knowing too many inconvenient facts.

Sarah has an Egyptian daughter? I hope she’s Muslim — it would be too much fun to see the Republicans arguing that just because she has a Muslim daughter doesn’t mean she’s Muslim herself or would promote some sort of radical Muslim agenda. Then Republicans would all start wearing hijabs and kheffiyehs as a sign of support.

Karl Rove: “Put up by a teacher to run for class senate, he beat his opponent by riding in the back of a convertible sandwiched between two attractive girls inside the school gymnasium,[3] right before his election speech.”

Jesus Christ….now we are all back in high school.

And Sarah is the slut who stole my boyfriend…..

Wee Mousie September 7, 2008 at 2:00 pm

Okay, so it will take Mooselini two weeks before she knows what John McCain thinks.

How long will it take before her running mate knows what John McCain thinks?

Gopherit v2.0 September 7, 2008 at 2:31 pm

Two weeks = New Experience to be President. Worked well for Dubya, why not Sarah
That’s dfinitely not intellectual trancendence.

Why does McCain’s communications director have his creepy smile? Is that part of the
job requirement? If so, Sara Palin’s gonna look like the Crypt Keeper in two weeks.

btwbfdimho September 7, 2008 at 3:01 pm

Palin off for two weeks may be an attempt of the GOP to put Wonkette out of business.

Gopherit v2.0 September 7, 2008 at 3:33 pm

[re=88086]Wee Mousie[/re]: Mooselini may well become my most favorite pet name ever.

The 3-Legged Man September 7, 2008 at 4:30 pm

The AP, Wash. Post, NY Times all report Palin will do an interview with either Charles Gibson or some other actual news person “in a few days”. I’m sure it will be a very hard-hitting interview with ground rules well-established: Okay to ask about Miss Wasilla contest; not okay to ask anything about policy.

azw88 September 7, 2008 at 4:42 pm

Now, more than ever, we need….

TIM RUSSERT!!

God, could you imagine Palin getting hammered and bamboozeled by the master of BS destruction. It would have made CNN’s Brown questions to McCain’s Tucker Bounds seem like a love-fest.

She would have run crying back to Wasalia about those evil people in ‘lower 48′ and immediately joined her husband in pushing for Alaska’s succession from the Union.

Kate4Dean September 7, 2008 at 5:07 pm

Every time I hear a talking head for the GOP say, “women relate to Sarah, because they know her,” I think, “that’s right, I know her.” She was that self-interested gal who sidled up to the principal at the start of the semester, worked herself & her posse into favor & proceeded to “rule the school” for the remainder of the year. All the activities were dictated by their wishes & schedules. Any parent who wanted to be involved found out ‘too slow, you blow’ & on the bottom rung with dirty jobs, no say over anything & lots of meetings secretly scheduled when the rest of us were at work, so the “hockey moms” could just keep things going their way. Yeah, I know this chick. She is not a nice person and with her, you’re either in or out. Mean Girls: What a great idea for our country!

Sire Says September 7, 2008 at 5:35 pm

Completely insane. And even more insane, here is a handy breakdown of how long it took every other VP in modern history to “meet the press” after they were nominated. Tick tock tick tock.

politico says chas gibson is going to interview her later in the week in ak. yay! now we can find out the truths about banning books, building bridges to nowhere, having affairs with business partners and all that other fun stuff that’s floating out there.

or not.

The 3-Legged Man September 8, 2008 at 9:33 am

I just realized that the Wonkette intro to this says: “It’s like cramming for the LSAT in two weeks…” Well, yeah, except the LSAT covers nothing you can cram for, and everyone knows you can score in the 25th percentile and get into a law school.

Perhaps the better analogy is that it’s like cramming for the bar exam after cutting classes for 3 years.

TGY September 8, 2008 at 11:25 am

[re=88204]tina[/re]: She will deny it amidst confusion and claim it was all banning bridges, having affairs with books, and building business partners.
