Sarah Palin does not disappoint

The ‘half-governor’ and now national joke offers one of her signature word-salads on Todd Akin. Here’s an exquisitely twisted bit of grammar (my favorite part is in bold). Just splendid.

Todd Akin has said he’s not going to drop out, and bless his heart, I don’t want to pile on Todd Akin, because in some respects I understand what he was trying to say here, in standing on principle that he doesn’t want to be perceived as a quitter, but you gotta know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em. Believe me, I’ve walked before, and I know when you have to hold that mantle and then hand it someone else in order to progress a positive agenda. That’s what I had to do in Alaska.

  1. Here’s a prediction: I think she’ll be largely forgotten by the 2016 election.

    Agree?

  2. What ever other criticism you can make of Paul Ryan. I think he’s a better choice than she was for Veep.

  4. I thinks she was trying to take the right side here. “I understand what he was trying to say here, in standing on principle that he doesn’t want to be perceived as a quitter, but you gotta know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em,” as in Mr. Akin should quit because he went to far…I can’t really even tell these days what her point is.

    • Hey Bear, welcome. And congrats for an excellent job mining the Palin English and discerning her meaning. I don’t think I’ve ever heard another public figure so unable to construct a simple sentence. Searches for that verb, searches and searches . . .

  5. Now Moe, you’re just being mean to Sarah. Just because she can’t talk good like you and me doesn’t mean we shouldn’t hang on her every word. At least until we figure out what the hell she is talking about and realize, hey we don’t care!

    • And she would add to that: ‘just because she doesn’t talk good’ is no reason not to talk all the time, everywhere there’s a camera. Doens’t matter what she says – just make the noise and say ‘Sean’ a lot and you get your check from FOX.
