1) Markets are too dumb to think on their own, and 2) the GOP has always said Social Security is in great shape

https://i2.wp.com/jewsforsarah.com/wp-content/uploads/image6.jpgPalin is, Elvis help us, talking again:

So, he’s scaremongering the markets about default, just as he tries to scaremonger our senior citizens about their Social Security, which, by the way, is funded by the Social Security Trust Fund and is solvent through 2038.

Best thing found at the link comes from article author TBogg, one of the best. He calls Palin the “neverending punchline”. That is good.

Go here for more. He’s funny.

    • Hehe…

      The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary

      • I’d agree with that jonolan – the invention of words is really accelerating these days too. But re Palin, this time I was not mocking her language – the sentence is actually entirely grammatically correct. I was mocking her suggestion that the markets are scared cuz Obama is telling htem to be scared and her claim that SS is soooo secure – an unexpected claim from that quarter.
