I said REGROUP dammit, not GAFFE REPEATEDLY

In Palin on September 20, 2008 at 6:01 pm

Which one of you is responsible for having Sarah proposing the same ethical transparency overhaul that was already done by Barack Obama in one of his first acts as senator in an impressively bipartisan way?

I know one of fundamental strategies we have always employed as Republicans has been to take credit for the achievements of the other side, or even the achievements of those we don’t like very much on our side, and to simply hope the press and public are too ignorant to notice. And I do not disagree that this is a good tactic, particularly because, let’s face it, WE HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING IN THE PAST 8 YEARS OTHER THAN LIBERATING IRAQ, which neither the Iraqi nor the American people seem to be overly appreciative of these day. In light of the current political climate, we (i’m looking your way TUCKER) should perhaps respond better than:

A campaign spokesperson insisted that Palin was referring not to that specific proposal, but rather to “that kind of transparency in general.”

Look morons, you can’t just add “in general” when you are caught in a lie. JOHNNY YOU SAID YOU DIDN’T TAKE THE COOKIES OUT OF THE COOKIE JAR BUT NOW ALL THE COOKIES ARE GONE, DID YOU LIE? NO MOMMY, I MEANT I DIDN’T MEAN THAT *SPECIFIC* COOKIE JAR, I MEANT I DIDNT TAKE THE COOKIES *IN GENERAL* BUT YES I DID TAKE THE COOKIES.

Do you see how this sounds retarded? Because it is. Sounding retarded somehow worked for GWB and the people loved him for that, but I guess now that people have lost all their jobs and savings and homes they find retardedness a little less funny and charming, and a little more, oh I don’t know, RETARDED.
