When I think conspiracy theories, I think ‘truthers’ and Charlie Sheen. I’m loathe to consider them much less invent them, yet a couple of hot news stories got me thinking.
Biden’s China Visit. Our foot-in-mouth veep was busy defending stutterers and China’s one child policy in Beijing this week, enraging talk-show hosts and regular Americans who don’t particularly care for forced abortions and re-education camps. But what was this trip really all about? Was it to reassure our sugar-daddy and grovel? Or, maybe it was to make sure President Hu was still up for making a few campaign donations to Obama’s re-election campaign. If I’m the Chinese, Russians or any other enemy state, I’m calling any one of Obama’s campaign bundlers to see where I can send the check.
Sarah Palin’s upcoming Iowa speech. Many pundits and prognosticators are predicting Palin will make an announcement on September 3. If she’s as dumb as the mainstreamers portray her, she’ll announce. Recent polls show her barely making a dent in the Republican field and her negatives make Hillary’s ’08 numbers look like Mother Teresa’s. She isn’t dumb, so what could be her big announcement? Could it be that she will be endorsing Rick Perry? Perhaps.
Citing unnamed McCain staffer sources, Carl Cameron giddily recounted what could only be characterized as ‘tales of the retard’ last night on the ‘O’Reilly Factor’. Listening to Carl, one would wonder whether Governor Palin possessed the brainpower to tie her own shoe laces without assistance.
She didn’t know Africa was a continent. She answered the door in her bathrobe. Nafta? That was a fancy drink served in posh five star resorts across the Caribbean. Which country lies to the north of the United States? Does the Arctic count?
If only they hadn’t gone so far…the smear might have taken hold and accomplished its intention: destroying Sarah Palin and her future chances. When these staffers decided Palin’s rollout would be maximized by interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric, their acumen should have been called into question. Then again, perhaps the decision was purposeful. Maybe their intention all along was to ruin her political future.
Memo to Fox: You don’t decide who Republicans choose to put on the ballot in ’12, and your shameless ‘unnamed sources’ reporting without a hint of objectivity doesn’t endear you to those of us that actually like Gov. Palin. And maybe I missed it, but I didn’t hear you guys report about President Bush’s taped phone call to the Australian Prime Minister. You know, the one where the PM suggests calling a G20 summit, and the President responds by asking what the G20 is…Then again, maybe as long as you are a RINO, big government Repub with a pedigree, Fox leaves you alone.
Memo to staffers: I hope Red State is truly able to out you and make you political lepers. Most of us are tired of RINOs and wish you all would move along to greener, more Democratic, pastures.
