She's So Classy

A former governor who quit in the middle of her term to take advantage of her new found celebrity status and laugh her way to the bank, Sarah Palin decides to rehash hackneyed attacks on Michelle Obama in her latest book she didn't write, proving she's as much of a sore loser as her senile, creepy running mate, John McFlip-Flop.

In a passage on perceptions of racial inequality in the United States, Palin slams President Barack Obama, who, she asserts, "seems to believe" that "America -- at least America as it currently exists -- is a fundamentally unjust and unequal country."
And then she goes after Michelle Obama:
Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. In retrospect, I guess this shouldn't surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church listening to his rants against America and white people.
Must we go down this road again? Of course, Palin's ghostwriter doesn't use quotes from that Michelle Obama speech because she didn't say she was "never proud of her country until her husband started winning elections." What she did say was this:
What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something--for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction, and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud.
Afterwards, the First Lady further clarified her remarks by noting that she was referencing the "record number" of young voters participating in the political process in the 2008 campaign:
For the first time in my lifetime, I am seeing people rolling up their sleeves in way that I haven't seen and really trying to figure this out, and that's the source of pride I was talking about.
What? Sarah Palin's ghostwriter lied? Say it ain't so, Mama Grizzly! And the added racism in that last line, sitting in "Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church listening to his rants against America and white people" is really something else. Nothing like overtly calling the Obamas racists in her latest screed to gin up the wingnut base and get them properly angry and/or scared for 2012.

ADDING... Ms. Wasilla also thinks that leaking quotes from her upcoming book without her permission may be illegal. What a nitwit.

Not to rehash what Rev Wright said but he never specified "white people"by name.The amazing but then again,not surprising part of the sermon he gave and the media refused to address, was the justification for 911 because we always stick our noses where it doesn't belong and have a history of backing dictators.NO,the media is still going with the childish Bush narrative "they hate our freedom"rather than ever have a substantive discussion with the American people
After all,there are very few journalist in the MSM who are allowed to God forbid,to truly enlighten the people.
By the way Sarah, when blacks are given longer sentences than whites,when the top two percent make disproportionately more than the bottom 98 percent and pay less than taxes then yes America is unjust.
