I refudiate you, madam

As far as I'm concerned, anyone can vote any way he or she wishes to, but it starts to amuse me when Sarah Palin speaks about how conservative people are and how conservative they ought to be.  

To be quite frank about this, anything that Sarah Palin says amuses me, because, as a fan of speaking voices, I get a boot out of her Midwestern adenoidal twang.  It makes everything she says sound sort of strident and, well, a bit unpleasant.  Here are words she said about Mitt Romney the other night to a group of people so conservative that they felt the need to spend a weekend in DC with other people equally so:

"I trust that his idea of conservatism is evolving and I base this on a pretty moderate past he has had, even in some cases a liberal past," Palin told Fox News Sunday. "He agreed with mandating on a state level what his constituents needed to be provided, needed to purchase in the way of health care and Romneycare, which of course was the precursor to Obamneycare."

This is why she seems snarky...she "accidentally" creates neologisms, the better to damn Romney by linking him to the president, a guy she seems to dislike quite a bit.   This is considered "cute" by the crowd that likes to pun on people's names.  Like they call our Governor O'Malley "Owe"Malley!  That's funny. The man has to raise taxes because his predecessor spent money we didn't have, and now the bills are coming due, so blame the guy who's trying to settle the check at the restaurant after everyone has enjoyed their feast.

And how is it that people think it's so doggone cute when she calls reporters "the lamestream media"?  "Lame" is an offensive term for people facing mobility challenges.  

And the same people who use that sort of term like to mock the president because his mother and father gave him a middle name that they consider repulsive.  Like he had something to do with what name they gave him. 

Jimmy Carl Black, born James Inkanish, Jr.
It seems to me that when one has to go around trumpeting how conservative they are, they might be wondering about it themselves.  It was funny when the former drummer of the Mothers of Invention, Jimmy Carl Black, would blurt out,"Hi, boys and girls, I'm Jimmy Carl Black, and I'm the Indian of the group!" because his Cherokee heritage, while a source of justifiable pride to him, wasn't really germane to the issues the band was singing about.  It's not as funny when Ms Palin goes, "Hi, I was once the governor of Alaska for a whole half of a term and now I go about, not really havin' the nerve to run for anything, but just commentin' on everything and everyone, don'cha knooooow."

Don'cha knoooooow that she doesn't know much about Paul Revere, either? "He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."

She has no idea how much she amuses me. She ought to have her own show.  Oh wait.  She did.
