That's Our Palin!

Hilarity herein. I am struggling, struggling, to understand how she made people love her, and moreover, how people continue to do so. The woman is like an idiot savant, by which I mean she's unnaturally good at being an idiot. A gigantic part of me believes that Palin is using her child's unfortunate condition as some kind of political platform. Genuine concern may be absent altogether. Rather, rants like this tend to get her on FOX News and the internets.

The fact that this woman has managed to stay in the limelight for so long says terrible things about the American people (who put up with her), the Republican party (who give her the stage), or both. She is the enemy of intellect, though to be honest, our American society seems to be going through some sort of anti-intellect phase right now. Palin is the face of that movement, willingly, and for that I loath her.

Mencken was right, as usual:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

seriously, scroll down and look at the baby pics. Notice the ears? And no, that deformity is permenant unless corrected with surgery (which is not allowed until their 2nd birthday)

Something, really, really weird is going on in Wasilla.

Agreed.

When you complain of others' idiocy, it's important to check your own spelling.

"Loath" means reluctant.

You may delete this after you fix the OP.
