Sarah Palin Holds Fun Second Interview, On Fox

  the reform ticket

Sarah Palin barely survived Charlie Gibson’s interview, but she did survive, and now she’s in much safer hands for her Second Interview, this time with Sean Hannity. Part one airs tonight at 9 p.m., so be sure to not watch that at all. Fox has released some excerpts from the interview, and there appear to be many questions about this “terribly fucked economy” that average Americans like Ken Layne are losing their minds over. So let’s check out the canned answers that some McCain intern programmed Palin to rattle off.

Now don’t get all huffy at Sarah, she’s just repeating the official McCain campaign dodges about the financial crisis:

On who is responsible for the failing financial institutions:
“I think the corruption on Wall Street. That’s to blame. And that violation of the public trust. And that contract that should be inherent in corporations who are spending, investing other people’s money, the abuse of that is what has got to stop.”

[...]

On if there should be an investigation on relationships between political donations from Fannie and Freddie Mac and the bankruptcy and its impact on the economy:
“I think that’s significant, but even more significant is the role that the lobbyists play in an issue like this also. And in that cronyism — it’s symptomatic of the grade of problem that we see right now in Washington and that is just that acceptance of the status quo, the politics as usual, the cronyism that has been allowed to be accepted and then it leads us to a position like we are today with so much collapse on Wall Street. That’s the reform that we’ve got to get in there and make sure that this happens. We’ve got to put government and these regulatory agencies back on the side of the people.”

It’s a fitting continuation of this morning’s bullshit talking points as shown in McCain’s new ad, about how “corruption on Wall Street” is the cause of the worst financial meltdown since the Great Depression. McCain and Palin have absolutely nothing to work with, and so this is what they’re doing: blaming problems on a few rogue players in the market who apparently did something illegal. It’ll take a pair of moral reformer Mavericks to clean up the otherwise healthy rich person’s money street. This is how they’re trying to explain the financial crisis.

For the last 10 years or so, people like John McCain, Phil Gramm, George W. Bush and terrible Bill Clinton have let big investment banks do whatever they want — low margins, murky debt investment packages, insurance for those murky debt investment packages, etc. — and ceded their regulatory authority to supposedly flawless risk models. Corruption? There’s always some corruption. But when the government leaves major firms that control such vast and widely distributed amounts of wealth to their own devices, those firms see a window to play aggressively with their capital — aggressive to the point where such lending should be illegal, but isn’t illegal, and that’s when they fuck up, legally, and “we” pay for the bail-out.

The financial collapse is not so much “cronyism” as it is “the unequivocal failure of Republican economic theory, and Bill Clinton sucked too.” But! Maybe Walnuts will eliminate greed on Wall Street, as he promised to do this morning.

    It’s dishonorable to mock McCain for not understanding the economy when we all know that his war injuries prevent him from using his abacus.

    God, I’m sick of Sarah Palin, and we’ve still got a month and a half to go. There has to be somewhere where I can unleash the rage and disgust I feel for her and the mouth-breathing morans who love her. But where? There’s gotta be a wack-a-mole game around here somewhere.

    If I didn’t actually enjoy living in New York, city of Sodom, I would almost say fuck it, I’m moving to another country, let McFailin win, because this whole stinking mess will be their problem then. Except of course it will actually be OUR problem, when we end up having to prostitute ourselves on the streets just to be able to purchase some week-old porridge made of rat droppings.

  13. Aurelio

    [re=99598]tonashideska[/re]: Yes, the analogies with the Keating Five are striking.

    In both cases, corporate risk was socialized at taxpayers’ expense, while corporate regulation was decimated.

    This nonsensical policy, prolonged by McCain and the other members of the Keating 5, cost us half a trillion dollars.

    The same absurd policy led to the current meltdown in banking and insurance.

    This distinctively Republican policy, dating from the administration St. Ronnie, should be connected with McCain as closely as possible. After all, he has always been one of its main proponents.

    I think that’s significant, but even more significant is the role that the lobbyists play in an issue like this also. And in that cronyism — it’s symptomatic of the grade of problem that we see right now in Washington and that is just that acceptance of the status quo, the politics as usual, the cronyism that has been allowed to be accepted and then it leads us to a position like we are today with so much collapse on Wall Street.

    That means literally NOTHING. It has no meaning. It is a collection of words put together to sound coherent, but it has fucking NO value whatsoever. Gah! I mean, I hate Cheney like nobody, but at least I kind of admire his brilliant conniving evil ways. Palin is just an idiot.

For the next four to eight (or twelve or 16 or 1,000) years. But, aside from all the reform and change and stuff we’ll be enjoying after the election, we’ll also have a shitfaced-in-five-minutes drinking game for the foreseeable future. So there’s that.

    From Sean’s list of questions:

    1. What’s your favorite color?
    2. Why is Obama a bad evil corrupt lying anti-reform poser unqualified cronyist?
    3. How much do you just love – love love love – America?
    4. Who will be your vice president?
    5. Are they real?

  41. Texan Bulldoggette

    I’m thinking this is just firmly entrenching the base. Because no one with two working neurons (that haven’t yet been killed by the booze) is gonna vote for this one or watch Fox/Hannity et al. Although it would have been funny if he’d actually asked her why Wasilla made rape victims pay for their own rape kits, or how Wasilla became the Meth Capital of AK or about the fact that she lies every time her yap is open. But silly me….there I go daydreaming again.

It still sucks. acceptance of the status quo, the politics as usual, the cronyism that“thet” has been allowed to be accepted and then it leads us to a position like we are today with so much collapse on Wall Street.”

    ok. i tried. i failed. i leave my failure for you all to see. this cretin is unexhumeable.

  84. SisterTruth

    She really has no idea what she’s talking about, which may be why she doesn’t quite make any sense. Almost, but not quite. Has anybody noticed that this women cannot actually complete a grammatically correct sentence. I really just want to ask her if she’s actually seen a black person in real life before.

    [re=99777]j6n[/re]: Roger Ailes: “We neen to talk about your flair.”
    Alan Colmes: “Really? I-I have 15 pieces on. I also–”
    Roger Ailes: “Well, 15 is the minimum, okay?”
    Colmes: “Oh, okay.”
    Ailes: “Now, you know, it’s up to you whether or not you wanna just do the bare minimum or, uh– Well, like Hannity, for example, has 37 pieces of flair on today. And a terrific smile.”
    Colmes: “Okay, so you want me to wear more?”
    Ailes: “Look, Alan–”
    Colmes: “Yeah?”
    Ailes: “People can get a news anywhere, okay?”
    Colmes: “They watch Fox because we’re fair and balanced. Okay? That’s what the flair’s about. It’s about being fair and balanced.”
    Ailes: “Yeah. Okay, so more then, yeah?”
    Colmes: “Look, we want you to express yourself. Okay? Now, if you feel that the bare minumum is enough, then okay. But some people choose to wear more and we encourage that. Okay? You do wanna express yourself, don’t you?”
    Ailesr: “Y-Yeah.”
    Joanna: “Okay, great, great. That’s all I ask.”
    Ailes: “Okay.”

    Keating Five. This man has no leg to stand upon re banking regulation. SP has no leg to stand upon. Period.
    Google Keating Five; wikipedia has a nice concise overview.

  87. jodyleek

    So Palin smells cronyism on Wall Street? Really? The woman who
    wrote the book on cronyism in her turn as mayor and as govenor?
    I say the first who smelt it, dealt it.

  88. Sweetfoot

    I can’t even stand watching her on TV. It was bad enough with Charlie Gibson. I couldn’t bear to watch Sean Hannity on his knees at the altar. Amazing how these folks can turn the tables and point the finger. Some serious journalists please call them out. Are there any serious journalists left?

    She’s not exactly John O’Hurley.

    All I can figure is this is some kind of dogwhistle thing. Palin says:

    “Through reform, absolutely. Look at the oversight that has been lack, I believe, here at the 1930s type of regulatory regime overseeing some of these corporations.”

    and Faux News viewers hear:

    Don’t you feel smart when you hear this? Smarter than me? And guys, if you vote for me, you’ll be marginally more likely to have sex with me.

    Hey Sarah, you can put lipstick on Jaws McCain’s rectum, but that doesn’t make him a pig!

    He was already a pig. Ain’t his first rode-de-hoe, honey.

  92. PoliTacky

    If republicans can call Obama an “empty suit,” then I guess I’ll start calling Palin an “empty bra”… or, wait, what’s worse: empty bra or Kleenex-stuffed bra?

    Or, if WALNUTS! is called WALNUTS! because it looks like he’s hoarding walnuts in his cheeks, can I call Palin (walnut) due to the tiny size of her brain?

    WALNUTS! and (walnut) ’08!

    [re=99710]Borat[/re]: “benevolent dictator” — there’s lots of partially qualified candidates. It’s the “benevolence” part we’re having trouble with. Yah sure, they all say they want to make the trains run on time. But then they blame the late trains on the people who are out of power, and then they ship all of those off to work camps on trains which have magically reappeared.

    btw, how long has this Areva ad with “Funkytown” been playing? I think I was in Iraq when I first saw it. Very catchy. Get that uranium from Canada and dance to the power the yellowcake delivers. I’m cool with nu-cu-lar power. Just wondering how this ad has survived unchanged for 4 years.

    [re=99592]Mr. Herpes[/re]: How rude of you…. there is no way the VPilf would go down on Sean H. during the interview. I’ll have you know that Sarah was raised a lady…

    she would NEVER talk with her mouth full……

    But then again, we are talkin about Hannity, so her mouth wouldn’t really be full..

    “I think the corruption on Wall Street. Like, why would anybody make a street with a wall? It would block you from seeing Russilia.”

    Palin: “I am prepared. I have that confidence. I have that readiness . And if you want specifics with specific policies or countries, you can go ahead and ask me. You can play ‘stump the candidate’ if you want to. But we are ready to serve.”

    You know what I’m waiting for? 2012, President McCain’s popularity is at about 3%–just members of his daughter’s Facebook–and Republican nominee Rick Santorum is saying, “Hey, I’m the real reform candidate in this election!”

    “Why do black males in America show so much disrespect towards attractive white women?”

    Sean, because he’s black, I like to think of Obama as a black sheep, what we call a “jigaboo caribou” in Alaska, and he might be used to treating his own black mother like a prostitute, but my breasts don’t blink.

    “Tell us more about your foreign policy experience, is Canada nice this time of year?”

    Sean, I’ve had to clean so much goose crap off my hockey stick, I’m suprised I’m not already the queen of Canada… but .. ever since the death of John Candy… sniff … I’d rather we move on.

    “What’s been more difficult? Being a beauty queen of Alaska? Or the beautiful governor of Alaska?”

    Sean, I am against activist judges in beauty contests. And here is a bunch of other stuff that isn’t good: cronyism, abortions, wall street, greed, big bridge, Obama, and some other stuff. Good stuff is: rosey revolutions, McCain, lipstick, pit bulls, hockey, fighting, and God and jesus and baby jesus.

    “Thankyou for your time governor.”

    Thanks, but no thanks, oops! I mean thanks.

    Dear Sarah, It was such a wonderful pleasure to have you as a guest on my show tonight. You are the most wonderful woman in the world. I’m now in bed back at my hotel room, alone, playing the tape of your interview over and over. Watching that lipstick moving and the cute tongue between the lips, and how the skirt moves so seductively, and how your hands play like little bunies. I’m .. I’m … cummm… OH SARAH!!!! FIRST DUDE!!!

    I can’t make myself watch this. Did Hannity ask her what kind of tree she would be if she was a tree? It seems like an obvious one.

  108. njdon

    dear sarah,
    don’t call me. i’ll call you.
    it’s not you. it’s me.
    we’ve had a lot of laughs together but its time to move on. i have my family here. you have your beaver there. no tears please. saying goodbye is not easy. now get the f$%^ out of here.

  109. Cape Clod

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned but isn’t Hannity the guy who went off last week when someone even dared to suggest that the economy was less than splendiferous?

    why didn’t we see this? “Oh get out of here, Sarah! This is a great economy! I bet that you’re voting for Obama! Isn’t that right?! You’re supporting Obama, aren’t you?!”

    Obama: “Yesterday, John McCain actually said that if he’s president that he’ll take on, and I quote, ‘the old boys network in Washington.’ Now I’m not making this up. This is somebody who’s been in Congress for twenty-six years, who put seven of the most powerful Washington lobbyists in charge of his campaign. And now he tells us that he’s the one who’s gonna’ to take on the old boys network. The old boys network? In the McCain campaign that’s called a staff meeting. Come, on!”

  112. Davidwatts

    I think you are giving that response too much credit. “That’s the reform that we’ve got to get in there and make sure that this happens.” TOO MANY PRONOUNS NO ANTECEDENTS GRAMMARBOT OVERLOADING.

    OMFG! She’s gotta be the dumbest fucking robot ever! God forbid she should ever go off script, ‘cuz then we’d see a real trainwreck of idiocy, like when W. ad libs some of his patented stupid cowboy bullshit. And that smug assclown Hannity just makes me even more ill. Gahhhh! Time to go rinse the vomit out of my throat.

  114. pinko-commie

    I think that Obama should just start saying that McCain is too old to be President. Then, McCain and Palin can say that, No, McCain is not too old, which will just reinforce the idea in everyone’s minds that McCain is f-ing old, and Obama will win in a landslide. The end.

  115. BBGG

    Sarah Palin is so amazing it is hard to believe she does all that she does. If you think McCain is too old, then let Sarah be the President. She’ll break a few balls. If Sarah were in charge, those assholes on the Boards of all those companies would be in ankle chains and in the big house waiting for Bubba. Hope this happens. If I were in charge every one of those bastards would go to the “big house.”

    [re=99616]NoWireHangers[/re]: Perhaps you should use the same scrutiny with which you view Sarah Palin on Sen. Obama. I’ve never seen such fawning over a person as the media has done with him. He does well to put two sentences together if he is without his teleprompter. And as for no wire hangers, abortions should not be used as a method of birth control. Originally, the law stated that abortions could be performed within the the first trimester, now partial birth abortions, are you kidding me? I do not believe that women should be butchered, but once the baby is viable, it’s too late. I have read that capital punishment opponents wonder how people can be for life and for capital punishment. Perhaps the question should be why would you want a convicted murderer to live, yet be willing to kill and innocent baby?
