Weeee-HA! Let's get a-purgin'!
In light of the EPIC FAIL on their side and the OH-SO-UNFAIR trashing of poor lil' innocent shrinking violet Sarah Palin, Redstate.com in association with Stalkin' Malkin Productions and Ticketmaster present the 2008 Operation Leper Tour:
RedState is pleased to announce it is engaging in a special project: Operation Leper.
We’re tracking down all the people from the McCain campaign now whispering smears against Governor Palin to Carl Cameron and others. Michelle Malkin has the details.
We intend to constantly remind the base about these people, monitor who they are working for, and, when 2012 rolls around, see which candidates hire them. Naturally then, you’ll see us go to war against those candidates.
Ain't nothing that makes a body feel better after a massive political defeat than a round of good ol' Soviet-style purges, after all.
One wonders if this will be as great a success as the Malkin's last project. (Boy, that one just put the fear into the terrorists, now didn't it?)
And guys - if you really, really want to hang your hopes on Caribou Barbie for 2012, well, I ain't standing in your way.
While Palin’s astounding misunderstanding of the basic nature of Africa has not yet been confirmed, it certainly would not deviate from her demonstrated lack of fundamental knowledge about the world:
– Palin suggested the U.S. shares a border with Afghanistan, calling it “our neighboring country.”
– Palin touted her foreign policy experience by explaining, “You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.”
– Palin suggested the U.S. was in a war with Iran.
– Palin claimed that “Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America,” though there have been no Russian incursions of American airspace during Palin’s tenure.
The fact that Palin thought, for example, that South Africa was just a region of the larger country of Africa makes McCain’s claim to have “turned to her for advice” on foreign policy “many times” that much more implausible — or frightening.
Some kids just have to learn the hard way.
EDIT: So overwhelmed I was by the whole thing that I failed to notice this:
RedState is pleased to announce it is engaging
Wow, just... wow. Amazing the kind of thing they find "pleasing".
UPDATE: Turns out that the "Sarah Palin didn't know Africa was a continent" thing was a hoax. Doesn't change the fact, though, that pretty much everything else she bloviated on, from Russia to what magazines she "reads", was all true.
