Most people, if asked, can say a lot of things about Sarah Palin: she’s snowbilly trash, human garbage, a religious nutball who protects the American airspace from Putin’s rearing head, a fake celebrity, a proudly ignorant “mean girl” who never should have won a promotion beyond head of her local neighborhood association, etc. But most politicians, if asked, cannot say any of these true things, so they fall back on what they believe to be an innocuous remark about her looks.
On Sunday, Mitt Romney suggested that Sarah Palin was “beautiful.” This was very sexist, because everybody knows Palin is famous for being a thinker and a statesman, not for being, say, the most attractive female pro-life Republican governor available to give the McCain ticket some “juice.”
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney joked about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s place on Time’s list of influential people, saying, “But was that the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” broadcast Sunday, Romney was responding to a question from the moderator as to whether Time’s inclusion of Palin and talk show host Rush Limbaugh on their list of “The World’s Most Influential People” was a positive or negative thing for the Republican Party.
Set aside for a moment the very important questions of whether Rush Limbaugh is also one of the most beautiful people in the world. Doesn’t Romney sound quite a bit like the incorrigible sexist Joe Biden? Just last summer Biden said this:
“There’s a gigantic difference between John McCain and Barack Obama and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent,” Biden said at an outdoor rally Sunday, getting ready to hit the GOP ticket for their economic policies.
“She’s good-looking,” he quipped.
Conclusion: Romney is a secret DEMONcrap, which we all knew anyway.
